    No, they're not. We're getting a one (1) time stimulus check of less than the monthly cost of living, and that's about it. My roommate and I were both denied unemployment. There are no rent freezes and shit in most of the country. My stimulus check barely covers what I still owe in taxes from 2019, so it's just being mailed right back to them.

    don't ever believe or expect that the American government will ever even have the intention of doing something positive for the citizens here man haha. Fucked country. don't know why anyone from other countries wants to live here. So far approximately zero of my friends in the music industry or just self employed friends in general have been approved for anything unemployment related.

    All why I'll never vote republican again. Haven't this century. Obama almost had universal single payer healthcare passed until some asshole independent senator from Connecticut, the bit insurance state torpedoed it. We ended up with the ACA which republican governors sabotaged beyond repair. In spite of being a total egomaniac, Hillary would have had this shit way more under control. She wouldn't have fired the CDC Pandemic Response team that Obama built when he had to deal with H1N1 and Ebola outbreaks. The unemployment benefits wouldn't have been slashed the way they were recently either. Elections have consequences. Lessor of two evils really is what we have to hold our noses and swallow or we get this shit instead.

    I very literally go "Seriously? why?" when someone from another country tries to move here or says they want to. Don't know why anyone would come here if they have another developed country as an option. You get **literally no benefits whatsoever** of being a citizen here. My father's bill for his 18 hour stay in the hospital after a heart attack was $80,000AUD. (did the conversion for ya). I had to pay $330AUD just to walk in the door of one of the "cheap" urgent care clinics to have a sore throat looked at a few months ago. University costs on average $44,000aud per year, for just like, a regular university......average cost of living is $33,000aud per year but full time minimum wage only pays $24,000aud per year (or $460aud per week since I know you guys do stuff weekly or something?). It's kind of a garbage place when you compare it to the rest of the "developed" countries. Will never understand why anyone comes here from places like Europe or Australia or Canada

    I know there are worse places to live but like if people have options like **anywhere in europe** or Australia or Canada or NZ I like genuinely have no idea what advantages they think they have here haha. Lower taxes doesn't really mean much when you make significantly less and then also can't see a doctor and then also can't go to school and then also can't pay rent and then......

    Your minimum wage yearly adds up to more money than I made touring and working at home combined last year lmao

    I didn't want to tape my ankle and dig out the Kilian Martin board that is better suited for street skating.

    I know, kinda lazy.
