Most of that makes sense except the 100% top marginal rate. Didn't we go to 90% to pay for WWII. Something like that would do. Do agree that the oligarchs that cashed in their McConnel/Ryan tax winnings and left their companies without a rainy day fund should be the ones to pay for recovery. Their companies should also be wards of the state until they pay back any bailout money. The money gone from the stock market isn't gone. They cashed out while they had their puppets on the TV telling everybody that it was just a little sniffle cold and was fully contained and bound to disappear any day now. Suspending rent and mortgage collection should happen too.

Originally posted by: SurferMic I ain't smart but I do see wild swings in the DOW 1000+ pts Up & Down as we continue to watch millions evaporate and the retirements funds of 401Ks drop (hope your into cash or Bonds by now). Next up - it's planting season, one side of my family are major farmers in the Carolina's, planting season is mid April, there are little to no migrant workers coming so far. If the farmers of the US cannot get help from their regulars during planting season , get ready for another wave of food shortages...crop yields down who knows 80% , How much will the crops and hogs cost when there is large demand and no supply? Start your own "Victory Garden" NOW...load up on chickens goats and ammo...this is round 1 of a 12 round fight. The Gov will send out checks but it will not be enough to support a family 100% but the checks will keep coming....So happy all my renters paid rent this month...nervous about the next month and the month after that...Already stories coming out of Brevard of people stealing veggy plants out of home gardens, chickens and goats being stolen as well..remember this has just started...it's going to get a lot worse. Only cure would be a Vaccine ready in < 6 months. I see a future of having a Drivers Lic. and a MANDATORY Immunization card to prove you have had the Covid shot and Flu Shot (once it is available) to get into any establishment. Hopefully I am very wrong about all the above..
Well, I have the chickens, goats and hogs covered. Got my beef supply covered too. Victory garden coming along nicely. Fruit trees are looking like they'll have a good year. How are you progs doing with all of that?

I would probably start the discussion at 110% and negotiate back to 90 something.

Unfortunately..... I was delaying my annual garden (The soil's good... it's been a fish cemetery) due to major yard overhaul plans, and was finally going to replace the fruit trees that were TKO'd after Matthew.... Then this shit happened... local nurseries are closed. At least I got a freezer full of fish, and loaded banana trees... but I guess the land clearing (and shed building) can wait till next year, and hopefully I can get some veggies going this weekend.....

Cheater, you sound like Jeff Spicoli after he crashed the football player's sports car... "Uhhh How we gonna fix this?"

The truth is the crash has already happened- you fix it by not driving into a wall in the first place.

But yet, I still offer a solution- "My Dad has like the ultimate set of tools!"

Lack of farm workers, another Trump fail. Once again, thank you Trump voters.

What do we do you ask? Got a time machine?
