    If they call businesses "open" even if they are only allowed to operate at 20%, they don't have to pay unemployment to people to need to stay home still due to reduced hours, furlough, or simply because the business isn't operating with safe social distancing. In a nutshell, it's all about finding ways to avoid paying unemployment and funding other stimulus safety net programs that will massively restructure the tax base and raise taxes of those of us still doing well. i.e. the 1%.

    They realize that if a monthly or weekly benefit was paid for more than a few weeks, there is no un ringing that bell and taxes on the wealthy will go up significantly.

    Questlove has been doing DJ sets online and he was wearing one the other night. I was like "That's fucking perfect."

    I've been workin' around part time for the last year. I finally got put on full time @ 40kish salary yesterday. Comes with benifits & I get 2 buy a nice laptop that I can keep after 12 months. Pretty stoked.

    Also, this sour feet creme made my breakfast reconsider it's retirement plan.
    when you fall, you gotta get back up to land the trick.

    Now the real fun is that normals like me cannot give negative rep. Only staff members can.
