    What difference does it matter if you file, I filed 3/26/20, haven’t seen a dime yet.

    • @Andrew Orahoske did u see the check bc they say they aren’t giving back pay..

    • @N J only thing we’ve gotten is an award letter..2 months ago..ive emailed them several times and nothing..

    • @CherBear I’m so sorry I went through that too. Took several weeks after my award letter came before I finally started getting it. It’s impossible to contact anyone.

    • @CherBear Just like the death count. They’re going to hide that number as to “not make us look bad”…..

      @Andrew Orahoske ikr i got 6,870

  5. Famous old question: Are we better off now? Seems like every time there is a Republican President, the Democrats have to come in and mop up the mess. Here we go again.

    • @T N Its all about $, you have a POP of around 400m, just how many survive on a proper daily diet, !!! I do not know the answer. The US is in a mess. I wish I had an answer, The $ rules the US. Funny thing, over here we have the UK treasury, all taxes etc are paid into it, it is a large part of the UK Government. You have a private bank, owned by the Rothschilds, doing the same thing, and I seem to remember some time ago quite a scandal on just how much money they had ‘LOST’ that went a bit quiet ??? wonder why.

      @Larry Garland –

      Trump: “only I can fix it.”

      but, but, but Democrats …


      That’s what you get when you get suckered by a snake-oil salesman.

    • @jacq danieles I am Scots Irish by birth, I have looked well into US history, Ok I am not a chicken, but have some comments to make, First, get Obama back into the White house, the best President you have had, and get that fool out, he makes the US look stupid in the rest of the world. I don’t know how u do it, but for the sake of the US try!!!!!!!!.

    • You Democrat/Socialist are the ones MURDERING, BURNING, and LOOTING!

    • @Mournstar And you murder in the name of law, looting has a few meanings, starve and empty the pockets of the poor, that seems to paint a picture of the Republicans to the outside world. Your Police murder and get off scot free, there is no justice in the US unless you are a REBUBLICAN, then you can get away with anything.

  6. Yet the president is running around doing photo ops with a Bible instead of taking care of the people 🤔🧐

    • @Somewhere Nearyou we are in america, you are nowhere near here. go bother the Ukraine comrade.

    • @Thanh Mai..and he doesn’t care about either one..

    • @Michigan Wolverine all of you republicans returned tjose stimulus checks? No republ8cans on unemployment? really are a twatwaffle aren’t you now? 🤣🤣🤣

      @CherBear No i went and bought 1200.00 dollars worth of ammo . I knew the ANTIFA liberal terrorist were just waiting for a reason to riot . Think about it in the last 60 days over 3.5 million guns have been sold a new record . We in Northern Michigan know ANTIFA liberals won’t come up here .

      Congress will make sure the corporations keep their stock high. It’s such a fake market right now.

      That’s because they gave business loans. He just signed another for them to get loans again yesterday.

    • Not ALL Americans are hurting.
      ‘American billionaires got $434 billion richer during the pandemic’

      Emperor Bunker-baby McBoneSpurs and Moscow Mitch has done everything to help their billionaire buddies.

    • The stock market is more than 3,000 points fron record highs.

    • It’s called Corporate Stock Buybacks. When a company buys it’s own stock to limit the supply of it, then it also raises the price of the stock, but it also creates a bubble. They helped create most of our worst market crashes. FDR banned the practice after they helped cause the Great Depression, and Reagan deregulated them leading to increasingly larger and more common crashes. They need to be banned, but the republicans just lit the fuse on the economic bomb that is another bubble…

  8. Putin: All is going exactly as planned

    Donald Trump: All of the issues that are happening is the fault of the do nothing democrats and fake news.

    • @Noreb So, you’re gonna follow the thinking of the person you hate? I’m old enough and smart enough not to blame one man for our govts constant failures.

    • @T Tullock 1. I dont hate him, i genuinely pity him. 2. These “constant failures” weirdly skyrocketted around the time the least competent president and administration in American history took office.. But im sure its a coincidence….

    • @Bryant Patterson How pathetic typical Chump supporters cant defend the orange clown without bringing up Obama…who isn’t even holding office anymore 🤣

    • Putin can’t believe the lack of shame and honor on the part of his chubby American buffoon.

      @David Hale you mean when there are numerous videos of people locking arms and pushing away looters across the country as well? Go watch actual videos and not whatever garbage you consume…

    • Thank China and WHO for that and their virus.

      @Mournstar but not Trump who didn’t test a single one of the 100,000 people who came back from infected countries after his “travel ban”? Come on we’ve known for a long time a pandemic was coming at some point, so why did Trump fire a ton of pandemic experts and cut funding to prevent pandemics? Stop scapegoating because you’re just making more people vote against Trump when you ignore obvious failures…

    • David Hale 😂😂😂

    Should go out and report how many are homeless now. Thanks to the government officials. That unemployment number way off. Poor people smdh.

    • Vendicar Kahn then go save them. Bet you 8/10 don’t want to get off the streets.
      I was homeless once. Not because of anything else but because I wanted to get high.
      It wasn’t tell I didn’t want to get high anymore did I do something bout it.
      Not Gods chooses path for them their own. It’s a fact. Go find for yourself.

      @David Hale most of us assume your still high Dave. All you ever post is hate filled delusions. Now we also know your a hypocrite. Thanks

    • Wicker Baskets and see there’s your problem use refuse to see the facts just to assume your right. But whatever.
      Awe wicker doesn’t like his bubble being invaded with opposing views. How sad. He doesn’t like it when someone says anything different then what he wants to hear. Awe.

      @David Hale if thats your comeback then keep puffin or snortin Dave. I dont mind different opinions. I just cant stand people who rise above their sqallor just to look back at the others they shared it with like they deserve it. Its disdainful, dishonorable and hypocritical.

    • Wicker Baskets and if you noticed I said I put myself there by my decision. And I got myself out of it.
      Me my decisions. Nobody came and got me out or put me there.
      But you idiots wanna blame everyone. Blame everything.
      That’s the problem nobody ever wants take responsibility for their own actions. Unbelievable

  11. It’s okay though the stock market is fine.

      @N D their optimistic “sentiment” is about to collide with stark reality

    • @Wicker Baskets Which is? I do think the markets are a little over optimistic right now, but I think that there is no stark reality. The markets should rebound faster than you think – maybe not in the burnt out shells of the city due to the riots; but overall There is no reason to be scared. Heres why; Consumer spending is the main factor of GDP growth in the USA, and we have seen a steady increase in consumer confidence returning to their normal levels. Our main issue is unemployment – but what has happened has yet to turn into a fin crisis where the worlds largest companies go belly up. We are also seeing that Comapnies are starting to losen their grip on cash allowing got more investment and spending – which are good signs. I would not put it past the market to see unemployment at or below 10% come late fall.

      @Michigan Wolverine We don’t want either. We want universal health care… Medicare For All. So stop playing the “Obama versus Trump” game. It’s childish.

      @Rick Roth Don’t lie it’s OMAMACARE snot nose democrats won’t let Trump change the OMAMACARE scam ask Nancy PIGlosi .

    • @Michigan Wolverine I’m not even American and I know that it’s not called Obamacare, its called the Affordable Care Act. I presume that you also realise that the USA is the only developed nation without a form of Universal Health care covering all citizens.
