    Erm... no. The only form of compensation has been from the government, and while the first one was led by the executive branch, and was great, the second one was not, so it was more of the usual...
    "We'll do a bunch of political favors but wrap them in with the stimulus and say we're helping people."
    It's awful.

    Speaking about COVID, the flu cases are supposedly going down because of masks and physical distancing, but the Covid cases are going up because we aren't wearing masks and being 6 feet apart, those two statements contradict eachother.

    pretty sure the bank can’t afford 400 dollars a week for 12.6 million people.
    Aka 5 billion 40 million dollars... per week.

    Not necessarily. If COVID is more contagious than the flu (and it seems likely it is), the mask mandates and social distancing measures are probably being followed enough to mitigate the latter, but not quite enough to stifle the former.

    The solution to the no-working problem was stimulus checks at first, but we haven't had those in months sadly.
    Shouldn't we have a mask mandate and social distancing mandate for COVID? I mean, that's gotta help, right?

    well your banks suck then. Putting an emphasize on avoiding an economy meltdown instead of peoples meltdown just makes thing worse, much worse. Im sure people with at least a quarter of a brain can figure out who's fault that is decimating (is that the right word ?) your country. Anyways im getting to political here so im going to end this conversation (i think) i started

    Hmmm, not good at all

    I'm not sure I agree with all of it, but I'll join you in ending the conversation.

    P.S. Grind86 and I were the ones who originally started it, but I appreciate the peacemaking regardless ;)

    If you take jobs away from millions of people the economy is going to tank. Going into lockdown is what ruined the economy, not one person. But it’s for the better of the people

    but anyways. Worst 60s car? I don’t know I don’t follow anything pre 1990 really

    So I'm prolly gonna get absolutely decimated for this but the 1961 DeSoto Adventurer is pretty ugly imo:

    How many drugs has someone to take to think that frame is a good idea?
    It looks like the sides of the car will be bent into high hell after a crash

    What GM engineer thought that making the sides of the car super weak by not having the side of the frame there was a good idea?
