Luckily my mum works as a Care taker, she didn’t lose her job. Hopefully all the unemployed people would get their job back 🥺🥺

All this from some Chinese experiment on bats. Makes sense if turned the world upside down like bats sleeping. What a weird world. Tbh we are the virus. Look at the Australian fires and other major events. The world needed to heal after that. World could care less about your jobs when it’s own existence is at stake. Not that this won’t go away but it’s a break from the overwhelming madness of human activity and makes us reconsider our wasteful ways.

When I receive a $1,200 stimulus check signed by Typhoid Trump, 2 things are going to take place immediately: 1. Sanitize the check and wash my hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. 2. Donate 10% of the check amount to anyone running against a Republican Senator and/or Congressman in my state. I understand that not everyone can afford to do this, but even if you donate just 1%, maybe we can put an end to this reign of incompetence and corruption. Please feel free to copy and paste this comment to every YouTube video you watch. And, in… Read more »

Holly did the right thing, She can get help and well deserves it. NO problem Holly. Keep hanging in there Holly. Don't pay rent, the landlord cannot evict you, nor should he want too, cause he can put a hold on the mortgage. You see people this is how it will work. No judge is going let the greedy businessman hurt you. Will never happen, every judge knows he will get tarred and feathered for doing damage to people damaged by Corona.YES, PEOPLE America is a fair and just place.

People this is no different than the Housing crisis. The banks cannot destroy you without destroying themselves. Because so many people can't pay the banks will need people to start paying again when the virus goes away. Do not worry, do not panic, the government has no choice but to give you free medical. Everyone in American has healthcare. If I go into the hospital right now, they will help me and give me a bill, I will file bankruptcy keep my house, car, household items and keep a certain amount of money, any above that I pay to hospital.… Read more »

I am a carpet cleaner. Been in business 36 years. I'll file bankruptcy in June if this doesn't stop. The stimulus package is only for mega companies like the airlines that don't deserve it, there is nothing for us small mom and pop places.

So lemme get this straight. The airlines, which makes billions, get a bailout no strings attatched but small business have to apply for a loan they must pay back probably with interest? I dont get how these multibillion dollar companies dont have enough to ride out a few weeks.

If what I'm saying has you running to your therapy dog for a hug please call your doctor. Question, at what point is all the shelter in place, self quarantine, economic standstill going to cost more, cause more damage and more death than the Covid19? Obviously the answer is off in the future. Some cost to consider; suicide, alcoholism, domestic violence, credit ratings, business closures, bankrupting States and federal government for future services because to hell with all that if anybody's dying. As if the services don't save lives such as cancer treatments, food programs, schools, parks, public Safety, public… Read more »

I own a small business and don't want a damn loan. I'm working till cops lock me up. I live in rural UT. Own dump trucks. I get in cab in morning and out at night. It's probably not going to effect me. Or my employees. Buses and trains are still going, that will spread it faster then anything. I saw greyhound last night with 20 people stopped at convenience store. My tire supplier says there closing warehouse in CA so no more tires. Probably 20 people on forklift loading trucks. But let's keep greyhound and mass transit going. Idiots… Read more »

Please support local as much as you can! Walmart/ Whole Foods/ Target.. etc won’t break a sweat but a sale at a local store. It can help put food on small business’s table and may help keep their home.
