How one spent their Wuhan virus US “stimulus” check…

Did you receive your “stimulus” check on the 15th?

My household didn’t. Thankfully, we’re fortunate enough to not need it.

Yet there are those who are in GREAT need for money and food. Such as the following people across the US who have lined up at food banks:

default

And yet…there are those who despise President Trump and choose to accept taxpayer dollars and do the following:

Priorities, I guess.

My daughter got hers right away – if you received a direct deposit refund from the IRS in the last year or two, you should be one of the first to get it. I wind up paying cause I’m self-employed, so I don’t know if I’m getting it. I’ve actually worked more hours these past few weeks than I have in the past 1 1/2 years, but I’m not counting on the $1200 anyway. I told my daughter to bank her check, but I hope she decides to listen, instead of blowing it.

Don’t have mine yet,and will feel a little guilty for accepting it since I can survive without it;However-I have some bills I can pay off with it,and can hopefully find a motorcycle shop in the area that is open and will install the new tires I bought for my Harley. (That’s embarrassing for me-I USED to to them myself in my driveway,with basic tools and 3 big screwdrivers,often having to start fresh when I pinched a hole in the inner tube and had to take it apart AGAIN to patch the tube. I don’t think my back and arthritis is… Read more »

I don’t know how things looked in other parts of the country, but the scenes they showed on the news here of folks waiting in lines to get free food was comical. Most were in $40,000 SUVs. I wonder where the actual *poor* folks were… the ones who couldn’t even afford the *insurance* on such vehicles… Or the gas. Or maintenance. Made me wonder a lot less about how it’s possible for so many Americans to be on the verge of bankruptcy after less than a month of being out of work, as was reported here last month. Maybe they’re… Read more »

I know, Cogito—-at my school in an attendance area of nice homes/middle-class-neighborhoods for our area ($300,000 to $600,000 or more homes) in a really “good” side of town, over 80% of my students are on the free Federal school breakfast/lunch program. Every morning, I patiently sit in the “drop off line” of cars b/c I won’t barge ahead to get to the staff parking lot, and, besides, I like to see for myself who gets dropped off ahead of me from those NEW $40,000-$60,000 SUV’s, Monster trucks, sports cars, and Mercedes Vans…..I can’t figure the math out for this while… Read more »

Hey…ditto! We have 3 cars: youngest is 14, & oldest 18…2 for we 2 commuters…& one for emergencies if one is in repair (actually, that “emergency” ONE is also the “dog car” the old 120-lb Lab dog can manage to get into for her trips to the vet or for shots, etc…as the others don’t work for her). But, most of all, if we keep our cars running, (esp. if good on mpg, which ours are, even if old….one still gets near 30 mpg….the others aren’t bad…& WAY better than a NEW truck or SUV)…every yr we don’t replace them… Read more »

Plus these new cars are crap, once they get older, they’ll be worthless, because it’ll cost too much to even buy the myriad of parts they’ll need.

DAH! Agree! I’m THE research junkie in our family/ INCLUDES car engine performance & manufacturers/longevity/MPG/replacement coverage…and to a degree, other parts esp. like transmissions (esp. for Saturns–manufactured in a Euro-Slavic country–& they were not “perfect” but I learned how they functioned ….we had a “delayed kick” into reverse.) These are the 2 things I research most when looking at ANY potential purchase. MOST of all, I research for longevity & repair vs performance for parts to these. Grew up on a farm with Farmall and John Deere engines hanging out all in the open….stupidly simple manuel clutch transmissions.

Ugh, the “new” tractors are a nightmare, they technologied them to death. Just because something is “new” does not mean its better. I see these newer vehicles and they need a new computer chip, oh just 1 grand. Or God forbid something happens with the electrical harness, the whole thing is scrap. Some you can’t even work on, you can’t even change the oil yourself.

I think many also way-overbuy on housing, as they think these days that coming straight out of school, they need/deserve a McMansion, just like they see their idols slumming it up in on MTV etc. And then they spend tons on decorating. And then tons more on the newest appliances, and on repairs & maintenance they should do themselves, etc. And of course, eating out every night (or more) gets expensive. Unless your kids make up for it by eating free breakfast & lunch @school, I suppose? heheheh…

Straight out of high school they buy these McMansions? My kids’ parents have no college for the most part. I have NO IDEA where their money comes from to do things that my husband and I, with advanced degrees & good incomes, couldn’t do at that juncture in our lives(however, I never took free Federal feeding programs for my kids, even tho’ looking back, when we were both earning our advanced degrees, we could have qualified…but instead, we just packed our kids’ lunches at home to send with them for school lunch. We also fed them oatmeal every blessed day… Read more »

Bet a lot of those same folks have $1000.00 cell phones instead of (or in addition to) a prepaid burner.

I had no need for it, so I gave it away to a local contractor who lost all his business and still has employees to pay. He seemed grateful. My last check from Obama years ago, I donated to the Heritage Foundation, in a effort to fight against Obama’s agenda. From my own pocket, I continue to pay my maid and hairdresser, even though I receive no services. It is not their faults and my retirement income was unaffected. This seems the right thing to be doing during these times.

It’s sobering how many in those food bank lines drive newer-model cars than mine.

When things get tough…really tough, these will be the first culled from the herd.

Nah, didn’t get one yet- we’ll end up spending it on property taxes, light bills and repairs on the barely working vehicles.
I guess with people wasting it on weed, it’s all about priorities, eh?
