    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    Are they sending this out alphabetically? If so I will have to wait a while and just keep putting things in my Amazon cart.

    If you have automatic deposit with your refund, you might get it today....If you normally get a check, you'll have to wait....Trump just insisted that his name be on the check, but there might be some pushback on that.

    In honor of our POTUS, I'm using my COVID windfall to hire a couple of Russian hookers to pee on me. They'll be wearing masks, of course. Safety first!!!

    Safety first? You didn't say that you would be wearing a mask. I know, getting a golden shower isn't the same if you're wearing a mask but.......... safety first!

    Well, this thread has taken an odd turn...

    Why would you buy stuff for China??? They've already got lots of stuff.

    Those of us getting checks have the added bonus of having a copy of the POTUS signature... as long as we don't cash it...

    I've already ordered my picture frame!!!

    Well, there is the "use your phone to take a picture of the check, bank can read the routing codes and deposit it using that picture" And then you still have a piece of paper to do whatever you want. (Wife deposits her paycheck that way, well, before the furlough)

    I did not think we qualified for the stimulus, but we got a deposit yesterday. Still not sure if this is a good thing.

    Someone I know was complaining about how they worked hard to get to where they are and now they're "punished" because they make too much to get the stimulus money. I argued for a while but eventually gave up. He and his wife are still working and they're doing just fine financially. I don't get why they're upset and resentful. They've built up enough wealth through dedication, hard work, and let's face it luck. There are lots of folks with the dame dedication and hard work that recently had their legs knocked out from under them.

    I'm not sure if I get a stimulus check or not. I'm fortunate enough to be able to be working and we're doing ok so I'm not really worried either way. If it does show we'll figure it out then; probably put it in savings as I'm sure we'll have to pay it back eventually.

    Along these lines, I think there should have been more conditions on who got money. Wait staff and other service workers who are now OUT OF WORK should be prioritized over people like my wife and I who's work is completely unaffected but never did pay enough to not qualify for the stimulus.

    I suppose I could donate mine but I'm not that philanthropic or convinced that my job won't be affected further down the line as the ripple effects catch up to other industries.

    I'll probably sit on mine for a while until I know things are back to normal then either pay off the last tiny bit of my student loan or buy some stocks.

    Is that what you did with your Obama "bribe money" in 2009?

    I didn't qualify for almost all of the plan....I might have received $20 a week in less taxes.
    PS...Work on the bills started before President Obama officially took office on January 20, 2009.

    I do not remember that as direct payout. More 'expansions in unemployment' and infrastructure projects. Tax incentives to buy (houses, cars etc)

    Without getting too political...
    I did not get "government cheese" from the Obama years. I did not build/buy a house. I did not even trade in a "gas guzzler". My friends who are pretty republican leaning sure did grab that cheese though! All other comments about parties and philosophies withheld (until this moves to PO) Yes, the title is slanted. Surprised that this has stayed out of PO this long. (already a thread there) Direct payments vs incentive programs is an interesting discussion...especially if a cult of personality demands his name on a direct payout....
