  1. By the time it gets through court, this situation will be long over. Exactly... nothing will change. When does he decree 5 round mags by Executive Order... you know, to "help" the people?
  2. I believe Murphy did this, after watching everyone hoarding groceries and the panic at the gun shops. He knows after a few weeks, that the natives would get really restless, and social unrest will grow, so he closed down the gun shops, so the pissed off people couldn't use the last few dollars of their credit card lines, to go buy firearms, and go "hunting". But, he forgot, Home Depot is still open for pitchfork and torch sales:
  3. Sort of, but you're also penalized with UE if you're a higher income earner, as there's a top of like $696 weekly UE amount. So, if you work hard, get promoted and be responsible, you get screwed on both fronts. I touched on that in this thread:
  4. They also know that will NEVER happen, so that's why they totally disregard the constitution... because they can.. without pushback.
  5. I agree with that and mentioned it earlier. What happened in 2018 and what's going on NOW for someone can be night and day. To say someone can't get help now, with being laid off or business closed, because they made too much in 2018 is nuts and unfair, considering the level of taxes they paid back then.
  6. I guess it would depend on incoming revenues too. If incoming business slows down, for lack of need, how long can they keep employees on the payroll with lower revenues? The bottom line usually wins....
  7. And here is Cuomo's response: ...."New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday he does not believe President Donald Trump has the authority to impose a quarantine on New York, New Jersey and parts of Connecticut to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Cuomo said he does not believe that Trump intends to impose a sweeping quarantine of the region but suggested he could sue if the administration did follow through. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/28/ny-gov-cuomo-says-trump-has-no-authority-to-impose-quarantine.html So, will other states and people be able to sue Cuomo if they find out the virus was brought into their state by a New Yorker and Cuomo didn't do anything to prevent it?
  8. Well, this really kills the whole "We're going to use the National Guard to deliver food" narrative, doesn't it? ...."Rhode Island plans to send the National Guard out to knock door-to-door in an attempt to hunt down anyone who has arrived in the tiny state from New York City during the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Gina Raimondo said anyone traveling there from New York will be ordered to undergo a 14-day quarantine and could face fines or even jail time if they’re found to not comply. In Rhode Island, Raimondo maintained she’s within her emergency powers to impose the aggressive measures and said she had consulted with state lawyers. “I know it’s unusual. I know it’s extreme and I know some people disagree with it,” she said. “While the Governor may have the power to suspend some state laws and regulations to address this medical emergency, she cannot suspend the Constitution,” said Steven Brown, the executive director of the ACLU of Rhode Island, in a statement. “Under the Fourth Amendment, having a New York state license plate simply does not, and cannot, constitute ‘probable cause’ to allow police to stop a car and interrogate the driver, no matter how laudable the goal of the stop may be,” Brown added. https://www.foxnews.com/us/rhode-island-hunting-down-new-yorkers-seeking-coronavirus-refuge Ha... like the politicians today really care about the Constitution....
  9. That's what I see, too. With the way this bill got written, even if they lifted the stay-at-home orders, who in the service industry will rush back to work, when getting this windfall?
  10. They seem to want to make more and more of the population dependent on the government... wonder why?
  11. Maybe put her in one of these, to go with her pink gloves:
  12. After the rescue bill was passed on Friday, besides the $1,200 stimulus check, it also includes an additional $600 per week added to UE checks. So, I was doing some back of the envelope calculations, and wondering if this will actually INCREASE layoffs with employers barely hanging on... By adding a additional $600 to the weekly UE check, laid of workers will make MORE than working.... it would be more beneficial for a business owner struggling to stay open, to just fire his employees... Median personal income in the country is like $34k right now, about $653 a week. In NJ, the UE check (about 60%) for that income is about $390 a week. So, on top of that $390, the government will send a ADDITIONAL $600 each week. Talk about a windfall! $990 a week!! It's like hitting the lottery!! So, why would any employer who's business is dead, try to keep anyone on the payroll? He could save tons of money, cut all non-essentials, as they would still get money. Pushing the number up, the maximum UE payment in the state is $696 a week. That would be for people making like $60K a year. Any income higher, the maximum stays the same at $696. So, someone making around $60k a year / $1,200 a week, pretty much stays even ($696 +$600). Are all these employees across the country making under $60K a year (which is tons) looking at a vacation this Monday? That would make the new UE applications next week go nuts....
  13. The original show was in the 60's and 70's, before you even hit the planet, right?
  14. They've already left, with all their belongings: You probably don't remember that show...
  15. THE GENTLELADY IS OUT OF ORDER!' - Democrat Congresswoman refuses to yield floor Talk about losing your sh*t.... Does this really help the American people? Nice gloves....
  16. This one comes from a barrel of a (unconstitutional) gun.
  17. The lockdown is coming folks.. now you know why they're calling up the millions of military reserves... Trump considers ‘enforceable’ quarantine in New York, New Jersey and parts of Connecticut President Donald Trump said Saturday that he’s considering placing a short-term quarantine on New York, New Jersey and certain parts of Connecticut as the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread. “I’m thinking about that right now. We might not have to do it but there’s a possibility that sometime today we’ll do a quarantine,” Trump told reporters at the White House Saturday. “Short-term, two week on New York, probably New Jersey and certain parts of Connecticut. Trump said he would make a decision today whether to enforce a quarantine. ” https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/28/trump-considers-enforceable-quarantine-in-new-york-new-jersey-and-parts-of-connecticut.html
  18. One of the BIG reasons hospitals are being swamped is that anyone with a sniffle or cough, is running to the ER to get tested. Doing the triage and treating all these people, until the test results comes back, is overwhelming them. It was said yesterday that out of all the people with symptoms, going to the test centers, only like 32% are testing positive. So that means, 70% have something else (the flu, common cold, allergies, etc,). Problem is, anyone showing up at the hospital gets treated the same, and it's taking days to get the test results. Everyone is panicking... That's exactly it. There aren't that many of them, so it doesn't take much of a spike to fill them all up, from any reason.
  19. Yes, everyone who dies is a tragic situation. But the fact is, more younger people die from the seasonal flu than are dying from Covid, so it all needs to be put in perspective. Not to mention, how many young people die in car wrecks everyday and thousands more that are permanently injured. Do we shut down the economy for them. There's a cost/benefit analysis that comes into play. Sometimes tough decisions have to be made, for the greater good, for the Majority... not the minority... Point of reference, there are now 108 deaths in NJ from Covid. There have been over 1,000 deaths in NJ from the flu. Also remember, the flu has a vaccine, which 50% actually get, and we still have this many deaths. The Covid doesn't have a vaccine.. Many people think the Covid has been in the state since Nov. or Dec., it was just not being tested or looked for back then. The economic damage is going to hurt a hell of a lot of people if this shutdown goes on for another month...
  20. I think if they filed their own 1040 from a part time job, they should: ...." The package provides one-time direct payments to Americans of $1,200 per individual adult and $2,400 for married couples, plus an additional $500 for each eligible child. I read that as "per individual adult", so if they have their own S.S number, and file a separate 1040 in 2018 or 2019, I believe they should be eligible.
  21. Guarding toilet paper maybe:
  22. Are you wondering how it would apply? If you're a sole proprietor filing a Schedule C, they would look at your income on the 1040. Lighten up Francis, this quarantine is making you stressed out... time for a beer
  23. You won't have to call the cops, Trump has your back. I wonder why he's doing this: Trump authorizes call-up of military reservists to active duty: white house WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday signed an executive order authorizing the secretaries of homeland security and defense to call up military and Coast Guard reservists to active duty, the White House said. Under the order, the two secretaries are authorized to order reservists from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard to active duty for up to two years “not to exceed 1,000,000 members on active duty at any one time.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-military/trump-authorizes-call-up-of-military-reservists-to-active-duty-white-house-idUSKBN21E3I1
