Line item in my checking account this morning.
US Treasury Dept.- Covid-19(CORVIR) Stimulus   +$1200

You must have more need than I do.
The ď needĒ factor is a priority for sending out checks.

Yes, you've said that, with no support. That was what prompted my comment.

How the IRS or anybody else in the federal government would know your "need factor" versus mine is a mystery.

Well. It is to you.

Just spoke to my friend MBS (Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!

So what if it's bad for everybody but the gas & oil industry?

And... your friend, MBS, the murderer?! How... cozy.
Gasoline at 1.50 a gallon is nice.  But oil at $20 a barrel wonít support supply and demand.

Gas at $20/barrel IS based on the combination of supply and demand, as you would have quickly pointed out to me, had I posted something as fatuous as your comment.

It is not sustainable. Producers will go out of business.

Economics 101. Saudi Arabia increased the supply, which had been artificially restrained. The prices dropped with the glut they created, because demand remained constant or possibly dropped.
You overlooked the idiotic game of chicken between Saudi Arabia and Russia. Whatever the reason for the supply glut the demand canít keep up. Any collapse of the oil industry is bad for all of us.

It takes a Pandemic to endorse Common Sense?

All across the country bans on single use plastic grocery bags are being overturned and/or delayed.
Meanwhile reusable bags are being  BANNED!

Praise the Lord!

You seem unable to distinguish between an emergency situation and a routine one.   In an emergency,  single use bags may indeed be reducing surface contaminated material.   In a routine situation, using less plastic WAS common sense based on (a)  the fact that recyclers are unable to handle bags,  and (b)  the effects of plastic nanoparticles on many species including ours.   Thanks for your contribution mindless ignorant twaddle!
You might want to face reality.
Plastic bags are here to stay.
Reusable bags are destined to join Edsels in the graveyards of bad ideas.

Ward owns stock in a plastic bag maker.
I might consider it.
Much more intelligent than investing in an industry that is destined to make you sick like reusable bags.

They get their checks processed in order of need.


"They" who? Recipients of the $1,200?!

To be a moderator must you first be stupid?

To be Ward, you must first be vague and refuse to answer questions intelligently.

But we knew that already.
LOL!

Should a retiree be getting a check?
That issue has already been answered yes, by our elected representatives.

For what it is worth, I do not have a direct deposit account with the IRS. I have not gotten a refund in years.
What does that have to do with anything?  Money from bank accounts flows both ways to and from the Government.

They do, but if one has not had an agreement for direct deposit, then the IRS is not allowed to just simply put money in it.
Brilliant!
You must be a moderator!

The IRS says it may take up to 20 weeks to get it to some people.

Not for those with direct deposit.
This is 2020.
And donít forget the IRS also has to process tax refund checks.
A timely reminder of the age old bromides.
The check is in the mail.
Iím from the Government  I'm here to help you
Your empathy for people not like you is as deficient as your formatting skills.

There are people who are not required to file taxes, including about 15 million retirees. Fuck them, Red gets his check. Right?
Wrong.
They get their checks processed in order of need.
But the Government canít turn water into wine.
Thatís left to the divine.
But,alas, mortals are left with the bureaucracy of politicians and a woefully inadequate government entity called the USPS. 
Call your Congressman.

It's your right to be an asshole.
Ah.
Insults.
How predictable.
As welcome to me as spinach to Popeye.
Thanks.

Just go post someplace else, asshole. You're just here to piss people off. Do you enjoy that? Why bother?
Iíd take a victory lap if that was my intention.
Your response is more reflective of stupidity.
Kinda disappointing.
Take your lap and go elsewhere. Your professed reason for posting here hasn't taken.
