    The whole affair smells like rotting fish and in the end will be bad for America.

    With that said, I'm in the winter of my lifespan and as far as I can tell my grandkids, except one, went left and voted for this crap so they get what the asked for. They don't like it when I tell them so and add I hope what's left of "my" America can last through what's left of my time and then they can fully experience "their" America. I used to try to argue with them but now I smile, tell them "Good Luck", and go silent.

      You have just scripted my life as it now stands.

      They always tell me that my arguments and analysis of Socialism are creating a “slippery slope” scenario that will not occur. “Things are different this time.” “Democratic Socialism is not the Socialism that I present.”

      The Star Trek mantra is their Truth; “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one.”

        But, they are also driven by the truism paraphrased as, “If even one person is hurt by (insert your favorite cause here) then all resources must be used to remedy the situation.”

        It is no wonder that so many have taken the “Crazy Diamond” route (Pink Floyd reference for the younger viewer).

        Thanks.

        "Things are different this time." Yeah, I'm tired of hearing that blather as well.

        I am a fan of much of the "Star Trek" franchise, but also question some of the left leaning dialog and innuendo. Not so much in the original series but it gets more prolific as time went on. That particular line is questionable, for sure, when used to support socialism. However it can be applied in an honorable way such as Spock willing to face death to save the lives of everyone on board the Enterprise. The decision was his alone, not some government panel deciding for us. In real life, Medal Of Honor recipients in the military top the list of one risking personal needs for the needs of others.

          "Medal Of Honor recipients in the military top the list of one risking personal needs for the needs of others. "

          Are you saying that those individuals are being selfless fodder for what the many desire? When I risk my life it is for very selfish reasons and not for the many who may be helped by my action. I value my family, friends, and country but take a risk for my own individual self. If I didn't, what would it do for my individual consciousness with its values and the integrity fueling my virtues?

    Blah blah blah. Politicians don't give a xxxx about you. They care about themselves. End of story. That's what drain the swamp is all about. Politicians have sold us out.

    I think I will even let a few Democrats know how I feel. Not that they will care, but they sure will read my mail. I'm even thinking about taking out an ad in the local newspaper. They never print anything interesting and this might liven things up.

      I'm glad I don't live in a state that told people to wear masks in their homes. My Governor knows better. Who would respond to that edict?

        I can tell a leftist by whether they wear a mask in their car when they are alone, or wear one while cycling outside. Some people just want to be told what to do by other people.

          The lone masked driver in a car just raises my blood pressure. Not that they don’t have a right. More that they don’t have the ability to think critically. And then the sinking realization that their vote probably canceled mine.
          Mmmm the coffee’s good. What’re ya gonna do about it? Nuthin.

            I wear a mask when biking and driving sometimes when I'm making frequent stops at places where I'll have to interact with people. It's mind-boggling to me that anyone would give a damn if I take the time to remove it or just wear it between stops.

      In about 6 months, I think it will be time to put up a billboard with Trump's picture on it, and "Miss me yet?" next to it.

        Haven't we missed him for 4 years already because the treasonous bureaucrats, that he can't fire, have obstructed Trump's goals?
        The treasonous con-gress did, without any evidence, insist on an investigation by a treasonous, biased investigator that obstructed Trump's goals,
        and the same con-gress impeached Trump with no evidence and obstructed Trump's goals which were the will of the People of the United States.
        Miss Trump? When have we even grown accustomed to Trump enough to miss him?
        What must be done to get justice for the People? I want the first 4 years of Trump without interference so I can actually judge Trump for myself.

          That would be nice. I hesitate to think about what the next year is going to be like. I refuse to even listen to Biden or look at his picture. I think we will as a country go backwards, but I dont know just how much. At a minimum, Las Vegas will be essentially no more. I think the leftists have damaged it beyond its ability to come back. Same with NYC. and California.

    We got a $600 check, but it should have been a $6000 check. Every time we call the IRS they say the same thing - you'll have to wait and claim it on your taxes. What a joke...

      Oddly, I've seen/heard from here and there the stimulus checks have to be claimed on your income tax return. Therefore, if true and you don't claim it, then you are automatically a criminal and tax cheat. Funny how THAT works if the government needs a reason to shoot your dog or make you disappear into the gulag. I'm wondering if the gov will send out a 1099 so we don't forget. Bwa-ha-ha!

        I don't know. All I know is that we've had family who have received the full amount of the checks when announced. We haven't. And our inquiries with the IRS have just been the same over and over again: put it on your 2021 taxes.

        I can tell you I'm going to be filing just as soon as I get my W2's...

    I got my $600 today also. Its just a down payment to help cover the inflation that will occur in 2021 caused by the various stimuli that have been doled out. I will keep it and use it for that purpose. When its all said and done, The $1200 and $600 will be eaten up by inflation, so I will be back where I started in March of 2020. Too bad people dont see how this works.

    "Can't beat them, join them" is my new motto. There has to some laws I can exempt myself from too. I've left messages for my Democrat Senators that I want to join them, but they have to stand up when the Electorate is being presented on the 6th and reject it per the Constitution and the laws of our land. I know they won't, but at least I put in my two-cents worth. Later I'll propose a recall for them for not standing with (and representing me) the Constitution and our Laws. I'm curious as to what their excuse will be. All of Congress, both houses, should be able to explain to the people why they are or are not going to reject this electorate. Ignorance is no excuse for the law, a cop once told me that.

    Corruption is rampant in DC, does the bureaucracy really care. They just care about their own jobs and screw the American people. All this person is going to get a form letter back if that. I truly believe that may of the career politicians have computer geeks working for them to create algorithms that sort their email so only favorable correspondences show up and answered. It has happen to me so many times make me very angry and many aren't answered at all.
