    I think the USA should be bailing out consumers. The airlines, for example. That's a boom/bust sector. They keep claiming they are needed like utilities, yet we have to keep bailing them out while they price gouge the US population.

    Regulate those fucks like we do with utilities. Then bail out the consumers, who will choose what airlines, like every other commodity, they want to fly with.

    it would probably be better for the economy if we all spent it for the stimulus effect.

    Thats what its supposed to be for. The other parts of the bill are for people out of work. I mean, if you're out of work and should spend it to support yourself and don't, then thats on you but I believe those checks were supposed to be basically so that people who have stopped spending money will do so again.

    in California you could make 75k to 150k and still be living check to check the cost of living here is no joke.

    I like the idea of giving every American besides millionaires checks.

    California 1k a month only is good enough for food and toiletries for a single person for a month. 1k could probably take you a long way in a place like Montana or Wyoming though.

    You guys save that money. You're kidding yourselves if you don't think you're gonna need that money for essentials a year down the road. This quarantine shit is going to last well over a year.

    Hey brother how is long beach these days? I used to be in the Area back in my youth and teens late 90s early 2000s. I used to date a girl who worked at Shoreline village :( man life caught up and I don't even have half as many friends as I did back in my youth everyone I knew moved away or have a family of their own, im the only bum. Fuck being locked up at home basically on quarantine is making me go crazy, I might get a panic attack again.

    I remember as a kid my aunt and uncle used to take us to the queen mary, and we watched the Toyota Grand prix race thing back in the 90s.

    They are giving out the money to stimulate the economy, if it lasts a year we are screwed.
