I am confused. Loved ones are not allowed into rooms with covid patients. They are video'ing

the man in an hospital room with covid, yet patients are dying without loved ones.

The very group at superspreader Saturday are actively working at taking my healthcare in the

middle of a pandemic.

Then I am reading post after post telling me I am suppose to be compassionate and caring for these people that have medical care and getting the utmost in treatment.

Fuck that. truly, fuck that. Why would anyone demand that I care about people that want to take my HC leaving me with nothing during a pandemic. That leaves me to die an horrible death or end up homeless.

This makes no sense and if anyone is going to argue with me that I am suppose to be the better person caring about a single one of these assholes that want to take my HC, then give me a reasonable argument why I should be held to that expectation.

12 Republican senators statement on 2016 SC pick.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX): “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL): “I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term - I would say that if it was a Republican president.”

Sen. David Perdue (R-GA): “The very balance of our nation’s highest court is in serious jeopardy. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will do everything in my power to encourage the president and Senate leadership not to start this process until we hear from the American people.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA): “A lifetime appointment that could dramatically impact individual freedoms and change the direction of the court for at least a generation is too important to get bogged down in politics. The American people shouldn’t be denied a voice.”

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC): “The campaign is already under way. It is essential to the institution of the Senate and to the very health of our republic to not launch our nation into a partisan, divisive confirmation battle during the very same time the American people are casting their ballots to elect our next president.”

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC.): “In this election year, the American people will have an opportunity to have their say in the future direction of our country. For this reason, I believe the vacancy left open by Justice Antonin Scalia should not be filled until there is a new president.”

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO): “The Senate should not confirm a new Supreme Court justice until we have a new president.”

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO): “I think we’re too close to the election. The president who is elected in November should be the one who makes this decision.”

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH): “I believe the best thing for the country is to trust the American people to weigh in on who should make a lifetime appointment that could reshape the Supreme Court for generations. This wouldn’t be unusual. It is common practice for the Senate to stop acting on lifetime appointments during the last year of a presidential term, and it’s been nearly 80 years since any president was permitted to immediately fill a vacancy that arose in a presidential election year.”

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI): “I strongly agree that the American people should decide the future direction of the Supreme Court by their votes for president and the majority party in the U.S. Senate.”

Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY): “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait to the next election.”

Texas Hockey Coach, 29, Dies from Coronavirus Complications Just Days After First Feeling Unwell

Tyler, 29, assumed he had common cold, which he usually contracted in late summer from going back and forth between cold ice rinks and the Texas heat, his wife Aimee told the New York Times.

The young father experienced nausea the first night, then over the next two days had other symptoms ranging from sleeplessness to shortness of breath to body aches and migraines, his wife explained to newstation WFAA.

On the third day, when their daughter Rylee went to swimming lessons, Aimee checked on Tyler and found him unresponsive.


In an effort to get some rest during his illness the hockey coach had taken a sleeping tablet, however, according to the medical examiner, the pill combined with COVID-19 slowed his heart, eventually causing it to stop, his family told the outlet.


The last couple 3 weeks, close to daily, I can no longer type and I have to restart computer

in order to be able to use the key board. The cursor is there but when I type nothing happens. No lights are on like I turned something on or off. It happened twice today. Out of the blue and I have no idea though I am sure I am accidentally hitting some button. Does anyone have any clue what I might be doing wrong?'

Edit: It is an HP laptop under a year old.

How about this. Pushing people into work, pushing kids into school. They need the death and virus

to stop votes. Panic, mayhem, end of the world, yikes... while stealing it and taking down the postal service for mail in.

Not giving us higher UI and not getting us the stimulus, stopping the money from going into the economy. People being forced to take the minimum wage jobs of customer service, putting ourselves at risk.

Sending the kids back to school by beginning of Sept and people without the UI by Sept, will have us all out there out once. It takes so long to get the spikes going, by end of Sept, Oct it will be a mess.

I like that Biden and Harris seem to be addressing daily now in their Presidentials role.

I am just really surprise the senate leaving until beginning of Sept and a little confused that Pelosi hasn't accomplished something yet, and she seems calm. So, ok.

We have NEVER had a VP pick like this. Lets look at the difference this time around. All women.

It is like a damn contestant show or worse parading these women and the titillation of who it is and is not. It is like a production, a real life tv contest thing that I cannot stand and do not participate in.

Every step of the way, for me, it becomes more and more insulting as a woman.

I have been consistent from the start. Really, this is all I have to say about it.

I will be clear in saying from day one, we have an outstanding field and I vote blue.

I do not like how we have carried ourselves choosing a VP over the last handful of months. I am disappointed. I am thrilled it will be done soon.

I want to edit to add, I see Harris was chosen. Good. That feels good and Harris is a solid choice. I am excited. I am glad it is done. Harris was in my top three and she was my Presidential choice until she stepped out.

I received a note from UI. Stating sorry, but done. I was concerned earlier in the week republicans

would miss this up. Some replied McConnell reelection and I though, right. He couldn't do this. He can't do this and win. But, looks like he is not concerned. Kinda scares me why a self interest man like McConnell has no concerns for his reelection.

Anyone else? What do you think?

So, what is going to happen. Are they going to extend UI? Trump is now pushing Republicans to not

extend. I think they have to and they know it. They low ball with 100 a week. They have to for the economy alone. Maybe for votes but certainly not because they care what is going to happen to people.

I know no one knows what is going to happen, but a guess. Do you think Trump will interfere and Republicans and Dems won't come to an agreement, or it will get done?


The Repugs are holding up the stimulus plan. They left Washington without voting on the plan. Moscow Mitch is saying that it might take some weeks before they pass it. The Repugs can't even agree on the plan.

People are going to be suffering because of this. Many will be evicted. They can't afford to pay their bills nor feed their kids.

This is all the fault of the Repugs. Make sure the American People here that it the fault of the Repugs. Make sure the American People know who's to blame. The Dems need to keep hitting that message while the Repugs duck their responsibility.

You know that the Repugs will somehow blame the Dems for this hold-up. The Dems can't let that happen. The Dems need to go on and keep on the offensive with this. They need to keep hammering this home to the American People so that come Nov. the vote is so overwhelmingly blue that we take more seats in the House. We win the Senate with 60 seats. And Joe Biden becomes our President.


Edit to add: I have not had unemployment so admittedly I know nothing. Sorry, hence going for any info people have.
Dear Oregonian:

We know that many Oregonians have been counting on the extra $600 per week through the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program. Since the program began on March 29, we have paid out more than $2 billion in FPUC benefits, so this is going to have a significant impact on Oregon families and communities. Just last week, the Department paid the extra $600 to more than 130,000 Oregonians, and that doesn’t include some Oregonians whose claims have not yet been processed.

We want to be sure Oregonians know what to expect, and also want them to know about additional resources available to them to supplement the $600 weekly loss in benefits. Here is what you need to know if you have already been receiving those benefits or are waiting for your benefits to be paid:

Every Oregonian who was eligible for regular unemployment benefits or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits between March 29 and July 25 is also eligible for the extra $600 per week during that period.
When you file a claim after July 25, you will still get your regular unemployment benefits or PUA benefits for each week you are eligible, if you file a weekly claim. You will no longer get the extra $600 each week.
If you haven’t yet been paid for weeks between March 29 and July 25, you will still get the extra $600 per week for those weeks once your claim is processed, for all weeks you were eligible.
We want every Oregonian to know about all benefits available to them. Unemployed Oregonians may also qualify for help paying for rent, utilities, food, healthcare, and more—especially now that the extra $600 per week is ending. We encourage you to visit 211info.org or call 211 to learn what benefits might be available to you. Free interpretation is provided.

We are grateful to our Congressional delegation for pushing hard to bring this extra relief to so many Oregonians. We know it has helped thousands of Oregon families who haven’t been able to return to work. We are frustrated that getting Oregonians the benefits they deserve has not been easy. We are making progress, and we know there’s a lot more work to do.

We hope that Congress will quickly pass additional measures to extend the program or come up with a solution that is able to be easily implemented so Oregonians can get more relief—and quickly. If they do, we will see how the legislation will impact Oregonians and share that information with you as quickly as we can.

I put this in Op because I guess it matters.

So, what is going to happen. Are they going to extend UI? Trump is now pushing Republicans to not

extend. I think they have to and they know it. They low ball with 100 a week. They have to for the economy alone. Maybe for votes but certainly not because they care what is going to happen to people.

Anyone not receive your tax return yet? I sent them turbo April 2. I need check thru mail.

Right after I sent in my tax return in April I was reading that the stimulus was coming out and they were going to put refunds on hold. Then I read it might be Aug until I received my refund. I thought maybe after July 15 I would get mine and I still haven't. I received state 2-3 weeks after sending them in April 2.

My taxes are pretty straight forward so I can't imagine there is a problem with them and state had no problem. My son did them for me so I do not have the information to check on a site people have given me. Before I start nagging him, I thought I would ask if anyone else is in my situation.

They are talking about sending out another stimulus and I am concerned that will put a halt to taxes again.
