anyways, lets keep the chat in here on COVID stuff.
the police have been going around shutting down every restuarant / bar that isnt a take out joint. Must have started today because the coffee joint i go into was open yesterday but closed today with a notice from the city, which means it wasnt voluntary.
i am also noticing that people are already becoming pretty irritable and anxious, including myself, which is concerning because we may very well only be in the second inning of all of this.
the US/CAN border just closed down which also means i cant go to Picassos. Crestfallen i believe is the most apt phrasing.
Ammo and guns are pretty much sold out in WNY. I bought the last few boxes of 9mm and 380 at Blue Tuna (only place that had inventory). It’s going to get rough in the coming weeks, I have a feeling. We’ve never put this kind of stress on a generation of entitled pansies before, so it’ll be interesting to see how people react when they are forced to do things that they don’t want to do.
Called around to about 6 or 7 places on Monday seeing if anyone had any shotguns, new or used. Everyone but one was out which I’m sure the last place sold their last gun. I’ll just wait for this crap to pass.
individuals making up to $75,000 annually would be eligible for a $1,200 check from the federal government.
Married couples who file their taxes jointly must make less than $150,000 to qualify for their payment, which would be $2,400.
From there, according to McConnell’s proposal, the payments decrease.
For individuals, the sum of the payment falls by $5 for each $100 earned over $75,000.
The payment phases out entirely for individuals making more than $99,000 annually, meaning people who make more than that will not receive any money from the federal government, according to the proposal.
For married couples earning more than $150,000, the payment also declines gradually and phases out completely for couples making more than $198,000, according to the plan.
Individuals and couples with children are eligible for an additional $500 per each child they have.
