I don't know your jobhas told you to hop to work from home O, but there's no, nothing for you to dofrom home. Really Right, because you work in a retail establishment. I run a retail establishment and seemslike I do a lot re not doing a lot from home, I'm yeah!I work every day, okay! Well at least you have somethingto Kee your mind busy again I need structure. Are you givingyourself structure? Are you like saying, and let's take out the dog at this inII? Apparently I'm getting a little looser wwi it it's a challenge for everybody isyeah. How about you your first week working from home? How do it go? Howare youtying I'm usually from home for the yeah, but it's fine. I mean likeit's totally fine, but I will say that yeah, it's weird to be home all thetime. If my girlfriend has the day off and I feel like I'm in her way, youknow like there's: No there's no space, how's it going between you and Kati. We have space, I mean you have anoffice. Yeah I've been hunkered down the hours away, don't know you know,that'sit's fine, it's all good, but yeah. It's a challenge and itcontinues to be one for everybody, because it's the hardest part is like.If I want to go out and do something I have to think twice about it, it like,is it necessary? Do I really need to go? Do this most of the time? The answer tothat is no, but you know I've been finding myself going to the park forwalks by grides yeah stuff, like yea things that we can damnwe've been doing WALKSA lot. You know what I just realized Tis, you recentlylike you and your girlfriend just moved in together. Yeah like that, has to bekind of an interesting dynamic like just now like living in the samequarters, but now being forced to like now you can't Wai, o the House Aen more. It's thinking about that yeah. Actually,it's a good thing, because if we weren't living together them, I was weactually taling about this say I probably wouldn't allow her to comeover to my apartment. Esase, I think, should be contaminated. I can see you doing that, so theyprobably would have ended things. No, so it's actually good TII Ma. I'mglad that I have somebody to be...

...camarntined with actually wout. You know me, it'd be lonely or you're, not alow yeahmean what are people doing. Oh Wo, like that's, be tough, FASETIME, yeahechology! You got embrace it more. I think before we get into the dirtydeeds, just along those lines, real quick, I did see this really cool thing.We're going to have to try. It have youever played at that game cardsagainst humanity, yeah. Well, you can Hav it together.Yeah, I thought so. Okay, you cannot play a virtually online myou got ta plaing cards, dot Io andyou can play it for free with other people. It's I going to get a virus.Absolutely e Son of a bitch dorny deeds, grocery stare workers areheroes. Inlook at this week's most importantstories. How often are you going to the grocery store twice a week, youyeod to cut that back to once everytwo weeks? Fuck, you that's what their sake it's easier so than done, though I knowthat's really hard. Well, it's just a way of getting out of the house. Don'tdon't do that, though Wedon't don't Wei, as you are cuse to get out the house, we should do our part whut. Do you meanwhat drives that's? What people are doing? Theyre congregating in thesegrocery stores, because they're just bored they're, going to the GROFERYstore? Ande, like yeah, you know got nothing else to do so. I'm just goingto stand around the cheese section here and target a not fucking hanging outlike and we go for our neighbors too they're,elderly and they're at risk. So we help them out. Okay, yeah. But you knowthese grocery store. Workers are on the front lines and they are heroes whenthey put out that o list of essential workers that had to continue to workwas like healthcare providers and then food workers. So we're talking aboutpeople at Grocery stores that make minimum wage a lot of times and they'rebeing exposed to covid nineteen every day where about gas station employees, I don't think there's as much trafficat a gas station than there is a grocery store, because everybody needsgroceries right now, nobody's less people are eating out and it's just ahosh podge of like just gross people, touching all the items. Youknow the touch everything. Oh, they want this spaghetti, Sau, so wint totouch it and not sure what Goin to put it back El. Let's grab this Spaghetti.Sals me look at look th to the back. Did youknow Adid, you know H, we were making spaghetti for dinner. Tonight is this?Was this you earlier today with in the Spaghetti Ssection? No, we have to beany sauce, but I want to know how you know that we're eating spaghetti like I feellike you're. Listening into my life right now. We had cameras installedlast week, so mostly Ta happen been here the wholetime. You know that guy that came to installyour new Internet yesterday. Will he installed some cameras for me, FuckWhan. He used your bathroom. He was putting one right above the toilet. Heuse our bathroom. That's thin! That's against companypolicy. Is it really what if you're one of these guys Hogoes around and installs cable? And you really have to take a number two. Youcan't dam. You have to go in your truck. That's called poor, plak yeah! That'swhy they have buckets. Okay, all right well, yeah, grocery store home deliveryis also skyrocketing, that service and Amazon as well, and these workers aresaying that they almost want to walk off their jobs. In fact, a lot didtoday. There was a Hashtag Amazon strike that was trending on twittertoday, because Amazon workers are getting infected at Amazons New Yorkstadend island facility. They said they have multiple people that have beendiagnosed with covid nineteen and at...

Amazon they employ eight hundredthousand people. They say that workers have positively infected or been positive, found to be positive or covid.Nineteen and at least eleven warehouses and one had to close down in Kentucky,so the Weathey'r demanding is just they want more pay. They want to becompensated. Some hazard pay. They also want more safeguards Chris, whoactually is on the show. He works in a factory similar to Amazon, where he'sin shipping- and he texted US really concerned, didn't he. He was like hereally concerned about the way everything is being handled. That's right, they also the other part to this. Isthat paid time off? If you do get sick, youhave to provide a positive test result in order to be paid to stay home fortwo weeks. Otherwise you go unpaid and it's hard to get tested and they're.Also saying in many places we won't test you unless you're beinghospitalized, so it creates this catch. Twenty two, it's airect it in this up situation youhave to. It is so like. If you have symptoms but you're like healthy enough that you can stay at home, they won't test you likethe testing which we've covered on the couple episodes Agat like the testing,still not up Tho Park, so when in it's just yeah Rendus, what's happening right now.What Amazon worker says quote? I touch over two thousand different items everyday I have to grab products off the shelf and put them in bins and I'm notwearing any protection, and this is the asting thing for this basic things aresaying: Amazon says that we're all family ethat's what they said all theiremployees and they say if Amazon really sauce as a family,they would care about keeping it safe and keeping US home. That's only goesso far with this hen, you know Amazons, like Oh you're, all family and allthese companies. Oh we love you. We care about you as long as we're stillmaking money and profitable there's always that caviat they don't tell youabout right and you're working for you knowminimum wage yeah. So these you know the same thing happened two weeks agoin Europe, you know Amazon Workers in Europe started walking off and striking because ofthese very same policies: El, when you think about it, Amazon and grocerydelivery like instacarent, which by the wall get to in a second. These servicesare really keeping society together, like thank God for Amazon, but italmost feels like the government, should step in and be running Amazonand have like. I don't know our military in their packing. You know,or at least pay these people enough money to where it's you know it's worthit for them. Aan B, Give them Hasmat, suits or gloves and masks whatever youwant to give them an Advan, more sanitizing going on and is what they'reasking I mean you yeah really are a socialist. Now, aren't you why don't wejust get the government in there like wow? They are literally holding upsociety right now, in my opinion, because people are ordering everythingon Amazon and they're using these, these grocery, a grocery stores, areholding up society too. This is like the last pillar of society we haveright. Now is how crazy it's gotten they're, the only set they're like wehave medical services, and we have grocery stores and the medical facilities are gettingprotective gear. The grocery store workers are not well, I mean getting a protective care.I don't know if ID say they were getting it like they're asking forandther getting some, but it's a very small percentage for the medical field,well, yeah and, of course, irs a shortage of everything in the it shouldgo to the medical field. First and that's the problem here, is thatthere's a short of supplies all around so but the but the emazon workersshould have some sort of protection, or...

...at least the illusion that thecompany's trying right I mean. Would it would it be better ifthere was an illusion like? Oh yes, we do care here. Is You know a smock you can wear is mock? Well, Cote covid nineteen can livecovid. Nineteen can live on a cardboard box for up to twenty four hours. So ifthey're not taking precautions in these Amazon shipping facilities, thenthey're going to be part of the spread. So what about that Aru? Absolutely I'M! Not I'M! I'm notordering anything from Amazon right now, because of that I've had to rely on ita couple times. You know: whenit comes ind. What I've been tryingto do is leave the package outside for a day or ll, open up the box on theporch and then leave the box out there and just take the contents, the bringinand and sanities whatever was in there. It's a ridiculous, but you have to doit. I mean just just to point out, likesomeone touched that item before went into the box, so I would think you knowjust for your planning purposes. Maybe try cleaning that on the porch beforeyou bring it inside at all. Okay doctor, I will try that that'sactually a good point. What about with groceries? Are you sanitizing yourgroceries like when you, when you go at the grocery store? When I go to thegrocery store, I do I bring them up to our patio and I remove them from the bags and I wipe everythingdown with Clorok rout wipes, which are hard to come by so good on you forhaving those. But yes, that's all right good thing todo. You know I've been ween, bringing the groceries into the house and then wiping them down, but we've been verymethodical about it and it just satizing everything that anythingtouches butvery times it is, but I did mentionMentione instacar earlier, if you're not familiar instacart, they delivergroceries to you. This is a service that I do y like to use. It is moreexpensive. I do hate that, but it's just convenient, but these thesegroceries store delivery. People have our independent contractors, so thatmeans that they're not actual employees of instantcard and they say that itbeing trecated properly they're, not getting hazard pay. They are gettingnothing that they're, demanding simple things to like hand sanitizer, and thenthey also want some paid time off if they happen to get sick, which is notsomething that Insta cart has to give them as independent contravors,but they're arguing we're holding up society right now. We're part of we'rean essential worker. Give us give us this and they should have it. In myopinion, why not protect these people? I've? Never I've never used Hinc tocart. So there's that all right well, it's convenient I'll,say that, but you iwel yeah yeah, definitely have the tip ifit if welled, especially Wi, we you tip well like do you double your tip mountnow, then you did like three weeks ago I haven't ordered. It haven't, ordered it really, sincethings started to happen so Rotcha Gotcha, but if you were to you, wouldlike double your tip normal tip right. I think they deserve more of a tip, butI also feel like instacar should be paying them more. So yeah, I tip a little bit more, like Isay, in a double thetip, but yeah they'll get pithey'Llook at tit morethan I normally would e'll say that sure, but the grocery store workers Imean these are the these. Are The guys and gals out there that are touchingthe the freezer door handles the cardboard boxes, the plastic packaging,and you know the people are saying. The grocery stores and pharmacies arebecoming super spreading virus vectors that super spreading virus. Pectors,that's from...

...an article from W. let's see where isit USA Today, I believe I could have thatsore strong, but yeah thes thing, because people are going to the grocerystores they're bored, but standing around they're breathng on each otherthere in close quarters right now we're supposed to be social, distancing, nogroups together and in the grocery store. You have no choice but to geteverybody together, and you know this is one of the biggest concerns, sothere haven't seen any groups well when I don't have a I in yourgoery ore, no, no groups, but you know you're grouping people together isbecause of this situation. Ind The nature of a grocery store people arenot able to practice the six feet of social distancing when you're goingdown a narrow isle. You know, because you have to breachover somebody to grab that that pizza, that pasta sauce that Yo ut thes no actual evidence thatit this illness is airborne and someone has to like sneeze or cough in yourarea for you to like catch it through the air. The thing is Ayv the t thereports on that are so varying and weird. I've also read that if somebodycoughs and it's not a well ventilated area, it can actually live in the airfor up to three hours. So I don't think they know enough about this. I reallydon't so it's better to air on the side of caution Bair enough yeah. So I don't. I don't Know II get afabrick mask, I'm considering it almost feel nakedgoing out in public without a mask right now. But although the fabric maskon is that thick enough? ALIHT I mean like Isno: Are the poors it doesn't allafter yeah? That's that's the problem, because the poorest aft Thos M, ninety,whatever they the ND sand. Ninety five yeah, those those have really tiny porsand a virus can't travel through it. I doubt thot boards there's a filter:okay, FO, whatever it is, O e particles, okay, okay, so and fabric mass. Don't have thatfilter theyre! You know I mean it's better than nothing. They say. I knowthat loosening guidelines on on those types of things, but you knowin ninety five is youre the mask you want and those are in highdemand. If, even if you have them, you should really. I think you should be giving it to yourlocal hospital or fire station, because those are the folks that really needthem absolutely and more in these grocery store workers, s just a second,but since you brought that up a really quick tangent there's this, I just readthis article about this website that sells sgrubs andother medical attire as a sexual fetish. It's a sexual fetish website and they have donated all of their stuff.The hospitals ow get on that everyone's got to dotheir part. Yeah and part of that is back to these grocery store workers.Looking out for these, these people out there there's a story from ABC fifteen in Arizon at the TV station,a daughter of a senior citizen who works at the grocery store talkingabout what it's like for her Dad Orit's continues. There's been more than everpeople kind of flooding, the stores trying to buy up things, and it scaresMelissa to death. Her Dad works outside a valley, grocery store, he's a seniorcitizen and has an underlying condition. Sometimes in grocery stores thecustomers are Wright up. I mean you have to kind of get in that that treedo six foot space to actually interact with the customer, exactly what the CDCsays we shouldn't be doing, but Melissa says his only choices are to go to workand possibly get sick or to go home and possibly lose his job yeah, that's what they're faced with theyshouldn't be faced with that, and it got even worse in this grocerystore. This is from CBC news. A grocery store clerk actually died, there's thitstory, Keith Saunders had covid...

...nineteen and died Wednesday at the ageof forty. Eight Saunders was an employee at this realCanadian superstory in oshway east of Toronto. He hadn't been traveling likea growing number of covid nineteen patients in Ontario. To me this isevidence of community transmission. Is it community wide? No people shouldknow that it's very important to keep the social distance e physical distancing can be difficultfor those working in grocery stores, and a few infections have now beenreporded, so it's hard in a grocery storeis. The thing so we're just asked to what can we do?Moving forward is to change our shopping. APITS maybe go to the grocerystore once every two weeks. If you can go in a big trip or get yourgroceriesdelivered. If you can do that, it's really difficult, though, becausewe do nither groceries. I don't know everyone's got: Ta EatEverybein. What about liquor, stores, liquor, stores, th they're, still open yeah? They are still open, but I feellike I guess it depends on the liquor store, but it's easier to maintain moreof soital distancing at those places because there aren't tiny isles youGoev kin of depends on where you're at maybe go to one Goo t liquor store thatyou know that has wider isles or go to a drive through liquor store, there's alot of those here in Denver. I don't know its little steps like this. That don'tseem like much but in the scheme of things. If, if we are stopping andslowing the spread, even just a little bit, that's going to start to really go a long way. Overall, you knowit's all about stopping and slowing the spread. Anyway, you can't. We have todo our part. Yeah at's: That's right, got Ta, doyour part stay home yeah, so all right more of how we're getting fucked overcoming up next on its news to us, don't go anywhere. It's such an upliftingshow Ho hoo O, thank God for this truly s: a national worldwise crisis, anational worldwide health crisis. Let's go ahead and backstab and steal fromthe American people. That sounds. That sounds really like a great idea:they're Jason Gon TA. Do that! I mean greed knows no bounds right.This is essentially what some senators did. They were caught dumping their stockswhen they knew that shit was going to get bad with the coronavirus yeah, so financial disclosurestatements indicated at four senators theythemselves or their spouses or their advisors, so large chunks of stock.Around time lawmakers were receiving behind the scenes breathings about theseverity of the coronavirus. Ah, so they knew how bad was right. They knewhow economically devastating it was going to get and they thought. Okay, myfour Onek'is probably going to dip fifty percent here. Let me go ahead andsell out, sell everything right now that way. I can come out ahead on thisthing and that's why I have nothing to do with the Fouronekdo back stockshares. Excuse me, yesterda stocks, Night Tock, Thi season. I consider this trees. Wow don't showstatement because they knew people are going to die. They could. These aresenators that represent a an amount, a population they havetheir CONSTITUENC need to be looking out for instead they're looking out forthemselves, that is betrayal of the country Mi, but I'm not GOINNA argue how Idefined betrayal of the country at least fair enough, freeziness treasness. We should note that it isillegal for Congress members to trade...

...based on nonpublic information gatheredduring the ear their official duties, but it is now, is it or is it is not I thi legal, it's a legal okay, butthey're allowed to have stocks they're allowed. This is now they're allowed tobe trading stocks based on public information, and thisis the whole thing it should. These senators be allowed to even have stocksat all, but I mean most would argue, know right,like common sense would say no we're just we're here to like. We have totrust these all these politicians they're going to be goodarded they'renot going to do the wrong thing if they find out something confidentially,they're not going to they're not going to go against the American people andthey're, not Goingnto, look out for their own interests, no way, neverGOINNA happer! Well, that's why that's why blind trust are available, though,and and used specically? For this reason, so you know they still own thestock, but they have no control over what happens with that stock. Just muchlike what people were trying to tell Djt to setup when he became president was set up his company into a blind trust which,as we all know, he did not do Okiht so yeah. Well, that's how you sert! That'show you get around this yeah yeah, but but you know what therthat's not happening. So what really happened? Richard Burr Republican, nosurprise North Carolina, this guy sold a signip yeah. He sold asignificant percentage of his stocks between lhe unloaded up to one point: Seven:two million dollars of his holdings on February thirteenh. In thirty threeseparate transactions, Tetour Bird, you know this is this- isreally interesting because he's the headed the intelligence committee inthe CIMIT and he has access the governments mosthighly classified information regarding America's security that includes he wasbeing briefed on the coronavirus that was happening in China in late Januarywow. So he knew that this wis going to be devastating to the American economy.He knew this Om because of his intelligence briefings and he's likeyou know what I'm gotto go ahead and DUP my stocks now, because Shit's GoinNa hit the fan, I mean that's what it it appears right.Like I mean, if you see this like back in January, he he sold his stock because he knewwhat was coming and not Againh stole he sold his stock and the reason why is soappalling is because he was doing that and not looking out for the Americanpeople. He was not warning us. He was not figuring out how to protect peoplein North Carolina. He was not leading the charge on telling everybody elseserious. This is. He was looking out for himself yeah, so there's a MPR obtained asecret recording from a February twenty seven luncheon, where bur was talkingto a VIP group talking about he, the preview of the economic impact that thecoronavirus was going to have the economy and on America and TheronNPR report bird told Te Tendis of the luncheon quote. There's one thing thatI can tell you about this: it is much more aggressive in its transmissionthan anything that we have seen in recent history is probably more Akind,O t, n thousand nine hundred and eighteen pandemic. He warned thatcompanies might have to curtel their employees travel, that schools couldclose and that the military might be mobilized, compensate for overwhelmedhospitals, man and of Cor e thousand nine hundredn eihteen he's referring to the Spanish flu, and we did today tweet somethingthat was really eerie. I don't know if...

...you see this tweet, it was a news clipping that from anarticle that was published on November seventh, nineteen ND, eighteen,againthisis, onethousand, nine hundred and nighteen, it says public notice. Excuse me, Gassit, says all schools, public and privatechurches, theaters moving picture halls, pool rooms and other places ofamusement and lodge meetings are to be closed until further notice. All publicgatherings consisting of ten or more are prohibited. Doesn't that sound familiar? It does and the Spanish the release?Yes. Well, I was going to say the reallyshitty thing about bur was he was publicly reassuring, like the public yeah that worked, the government wasready to battle this pandemic. He wrote up ad on February seventh, he said thequote. The United States says better prepared than ever before to faceemerging public health threats like tha coronavirus, no matter the outbreakerthreat Congress and the federal government have been vigilant andidentifying gaps in its readiness, sefforts and improving its responsecapabilities and quote and all that's bullshit. We havelearned because djt was dismantling the CDC pandemic response team and defunding the CDC as s. They wouldn'tbe able to respond to pandemics and the timely factiom, because you know I oBama Ob. It was Obama's program because don't know if you saw this but Yeah Department of state sent China likeseventeen tons of Ppe back in February, even though the thes mask coming thosear the masks right, yeah, okay, oht that thing yeah. Whatyou just said is big, because that actually kind of got buried. So that'salmost worth repeating, so they sent China how many tons of masks seventeen tons, seventeen tons ofprotective masks back in February yeah, and they knew that this ishappening in January or e woul become a Bev that this was happened. This wascoming so why the fuck did they send the masks to China like listen, I'm allabout helping people in the world, but a China's, not even our ally and thisvirus originated there. Maybe it was be. Maybe the idea was if we can contain itin China won't come here, and this could be a kind of like a hail marrysort of because they knew it's going to come here. No matter what sort of thingmaymaybe, maybe we were sending it so then the we could end the trade wars. Oh yeah yeah, I don't know, know I don't knowwhen the trade war ended or when they like negotiated for a truce on that butor a deal okay, but I'm just speculaton that is not ecxual in any way, andyeah that it's okay to speculate othis bcuse, we really don't know so. In other words, it could have been toprotect basically setting the masks over to China could have been foreconomic reasons and the reason why we did that is. We basically sacrificedAmerican lives or corporate profits. Perhaps yeah perhaps o know who knowswho knows but yeah this Burg Guy. He knew about this. This guy he's beencalled to resign and people are saying: HEU should resign, he's, probably notgoing to Sothin Mike Mo it's been a BI partisan call, that's pretty rareanymore in Washington, but folks from both sides of the aisle arcalling for him to resign. At this time I just saw mat gates. Your favoritefrom Florida said that burn needs to go by the way Ma a grates, a gop mat casegates war, a gas mask on the on the...

...floor. While he was mocking thecoronavirus before it, the outbreak became a pandemic, sothat's that guy and then he ended up having to isolate himself ecause. Hewas exposed fucking Duch back right, like many of them at the yeah anywayyeah so birn. So we oing sold off Richard Bur sold up to one point:Seventeo million dollars of his holdings on February thirteenth andthirty three transactions. It's interesting to note that, because bur is not particularly wealthy, rollcall has his estimated Networth at one point: seven million dollars in twothousand and eighteen so I mean he basically, you know his networth is one point: Seven. He just sold stock up to one point: seven million,so you know t a his. His Fortune was tiedup in that stock. Right like it's like all e Yeaham Future, it's likeeverything he had. He was you know, I'd give anything for one point: sevenmillion dollars, but the stock that he did so sold off have declined at around thirtypercent on average since he sold it so wow. So he was looking at losing a lotof money, change, yeah a lot of money and he doesn't have a lot compared tosome of these other folks right. He was looking at losing five hundredand ten million thousand dollars. I just did the math on that, so wowyou're, so good, but so the shares that he did sell to is interesting. Hedumped a hundred and fifty thusand dollars of shares of the winmen hotelsand resorts. He also sold up to a hundred thousand dollars worth ofshares and extended stay America, which is economy, hospitality, chaing and weknow the hotel industry is struggling right now because nobody's traveling itvery hard very hard, but he's not theonly one. What about Kelly Alofler Boffler Laffler she as Publican fromGeorgia, thether Republican and the Republic, Doing Shady Tins ather. Her husband is the chairman and Co of the New York Stock Exchange. He has a fasomate around five hundredmillion dollars. She just assumed office in January sixth, so she's justnew to cam being a senator. She was assigned after the seat was vacated by JohnJohnny Iskinson, who is retiring, HMM, okay, but on January twenty fourth, shereceived a briefing from administration officialsand she also that same days sold stock, a briefing about how bad thecoronavirus is going to be correct, with the CDC Director andAnthony Pouchy. Oh the souch, Mister Yeah, so she firsthand account of whatWal could be happening. She sold the stock that very day man yeah. This is just if anything, unethical what about Jim in Offi enough, he sold an archout Tock onJanuary twenty seven, including holding in Paypal, apple and Brook, killed us,and this is after he was. He was briefed on how bad it's going to be. HEU said he did not attend the Januarytwenty fourth briefing, so he does not have any involvement or didn't have anydirect knowledge of what was said in that briefing. All right e also saysthat he does not have any involvement in his in his investment decisions,Republican again, but a Democrat.

What's going on with Dian Finesteen,she sold one point: five million to six million dollars real stock and Aligentherapeutic. What is that because, like how IOTECH company right and that took place betweenJanuary thirty, first and February eighteenth, it's interesting different,this hattern and date MIS is fine, Miss Feinstein Sais. She played no rule inthe decision. Allo her assets are in a blind trust. Okay, all right. Ifthey're in a blind trust an I don't know, that's what they'resupposed to be dishes, but it's suspicious. They should be suspicious,but if they're going to blind trust them, we have to give her the benefitof the doubt sort of, but at the same time it should be looked into. I don'tknow I's shady, so a shady AOC is isn't she wanting topass something where senators can't own stolks at all? Right I mean she introduced the bill with our boy,one of our representeives here in Colorado. They introsused to bill foryeah to so RS. People would have to sell off their stock now over a sixmonth period and are not allowed to buy anymore stock, going forward. Yeah yeah and it's probably not going to go anywherebut hey she's, at least trying to do something. Man, thit's Jis, really shady, and it'sreally fucked up that these so called leaders that we electit we hold thevein high regard. We give them a position of power and office and then they'returning around and fucking us in the ast. Maybe like that, though, that's right!That's fine! If you like that Shoul just say: fucking is over just just bend over they yeah, but a bright side is the the DOJ is looks like they're launchingan investigation, and at least the very least ind a bur, along with the sec they reached out to talk to the Officeof Richard Burr, melet's, O that there's consequence there. I hope so. You know W it's bad. WhenTuck Carlson comes out and says you should resign as well. Cucker Carlsoncame out against he republican, okay, yeah crazy. It's how bad this is all right. Well, we'll keep it en onthat. I'm sure what you know what's happening there, but I just you knowthe people that youll like to protect. You are fucking you over. You should know this.They thought that you were so dumb that you wouldn't care. That's really thebiggest slap in the face and the insult. Don't you think, but yeah I we can getaway with anything. Go Yeah like fuck these people, Fuckim mine. You know Igoout in office and I can her the fuck. I won theire idiots they don't care. More of US do need to care, though I'llsay that all right we'll be right back on itsnews to us the stimulus bill. What does it mean to you and also how is Djtturned it into him? Another excuse Ram to become a doushbag ther's to us on a BW radio, theEconomic Stimulus Package, oh so fun when somebody says economic stimuluspackage. Those words right there just to get. Ladies just so turned on whenyou're in the dating sane economic stimulus package. Well, what was PA Wat to say right nowand most of us are Gettin the checks of themail. Wi'll say that much that's good! You know what you know. What I foundinteresting so yeah Americans that earn up to seventy five husand dollars ayear will receive twelve hundred...

...dollars. Yeah over that I like it,starts diminishing, and if you make over a hundred thousand a year, youwon't receive any stimulus, yeah and then, if you have a child, you get wata five hundred dollars a year or five hundred lars per de for my Perca Yepper child, but there's a gap here. So if there's acollege student, Oh who, who is being claimed by their parents, they won't get a check and you're the am or the kids yes fo. I think sixteenand younger. So what happens with like these seventeen and eighteen year, oldkids were being claimed by their families or even up to twenty six right.If you can claim you can flaim your kids on the twenty six under well,hopefully they got a job. If they don't, then there's bigger problems there, butI don't now hot that they're right, like o. How does that work like? Well?My parents claim me. I Wa thin at nothing until I was like I don't know twenty four or something so I could beon their health insurance, that's about being health and issurance right, so yeah, and then I, but whenthere is, when we had this last stimulus package, Checke that, U youstill file, you still file taxes right, yeah, I'm saying for the the kids that aren'tworking theyre college students that aren't working okay and Mommy and Daddy.You know yeah t the bill. I guess it's probbly, a small number of kids outthere like that, but yeah whatever yeah, but but everybody's.Not Everybody do. Do you, okay, what when it comes to Howwe're being paid?Do you think that this is fair? Do you think that it's enough, you know how they calculated this, Howd they calculated cocky levaculated calculate calculatedit. They took the federal minimum wage multiplaned by forty for four weeks andthat's how they came up with twelve hundreddllars. Oh my God, I didn't know that. So, if you thinkit's not enough, if you think it's not enough, that's because the federal minimum wageis not a living wage. The federal minimum wage is what is it? What is the federal minimum?Twenty five? Oh, my God, seventwenty five, I'm pretty sure, seen twenty five, so they took seventwenty five and they're like okay. What this isn't enough money th there's beenstudy after study, saying that Americans don't have. They can't coveran emergency three hundredolar bill. If that comes up andhything, that this isgoing to be enough for people, I don't know, Bernie sandews wasproposing two hsand dollars per month per family per household. Until this isover Dhat to me makes more sense. I mean I think Canada is doing that. Doesn't that make more sense to you, Imean what does this do so? Meanwhile, it'salmost like hey here's! Here's a here's! A little bit! Here's a dollar kid endistract you with thes dollar. So you can go, Buy Yourself, Wa Candy Bar.Meanwhile, I'm goingto steal everything else in the store, because thissteamless baggage also includes five hundred. Actually, how much is it yeah fivehundred billion dollars to corporations? Is that what it is five hundred billionspecifically for the airline industry? But yes, that's right, and we say thatthat you know the big thing here that the Democratsare wanting is more oversight over there is that is that going to gotowards executive bonuses? You Bet your ass. Just like the tax cut and Yeai. Don't even give you Soro, emIk tax get were we're bailing out these airlines.

There was there was that Ta to they just got you o Oll of money, thethe airlines a couple years ago. Youknow how much money they got after the tax cut like ninety four percent of this fiftybillion dollars were about to loan them and they bought it all back and stockbybacks like two years ago yeah. So these theseairline industry, yeah, the the airine industry, has already been given somany fucking hand outs. What it is is socialism for the rich, thecorporations and capitalism for everybody else. That's what it is.That's right. It is yeah and everybody should be outraged right now, becausethen trump ies goes on his twitter feed and TV and he's like I just passed thisstimulupd. I just pessed Holl Sta, this backage in so great ga Babby of the bag.You look at his twitter feed and these red had Bumfucke people are like, Oh, no you're, so great, Mr Crump, I can'twait to get my twelve hundred dollar, so I can go. Buy Me some boats. Meanwhile, these corporations are justlike continuing to fuck everybody over because they're, getting all the moneylike it's so lopsid o give the fucking executives at Boeing and United Airlines twelve hundred dollarse give the rest the five hundred billion to the people and see whathappens then. Could you imagine that or were you the Beo people? That would betwo two trillion dollars like think about like like just over like it was like Witha,a matter of what like a week and a half like two tillion dollars just done like,and we can't afford healthcare for all and we can't afford forgiving student loans, like we can'thelp the average American but two tillion, five hundred billion forcorporations just boom, likity split like yeah and and like a matter of tendays like they just ten days ten days because the United Airline CEO is like.Oh No, I might not make my quarterly projections. That's going to Hert WallStreet. Oh, let's cut you a check for fivehundred billion dollars and when they say Wall Street by theway they mean rich fucks, because the majority of Americans don't even havegoddamn stocks right. It's like eighty percent ofAmericans aren't even in the stock market. So when you say Wall Streetyou're not helping out goddamn thing in this country, so stop touting. That isyour success. fucking meter goddamn piece of Orange Shit and if you do, I mean most Americansit'o, all four o one k like you're, not buying, shares and yeah shares. Youknow like yeah, who does that you' invested in your four one k: Invest BenBanke Don have time for that rich people. I don't have time to sit there.I that I sried that didnt, you yeah, I still Lon I own stock in a thd printingcompany and you know what we're hanging in there. But it's costme like five hundred dollars over the past ongs been like three or four years, butyou know I don't have time to sit there all day and research, fivehundreddollars on it. Yeah Yeah, I have M put my age in the wrong basket. Bu Y,the time I had the money to spend- and I put some money in and I lost money-so yeah? U Don't know it's like it, the gambling, it is gambling and it waslike a ampis like a penny stock. Almost I was like hey. Let's see what happenshere, I don't know I was. I was, alas, alsost learning experiencees liketrying to figure out how it works, but it is a fulltime job because you yeah buying and selling stocks. I thinkwho's usually doing that and you have to hire somebody to do it or find a fiduciary or something or I don'tknow you have to have money to begin with before people will talk to you so...

...but anyways everybody should beappalled right now by this stanless package. It's not great. It's terrible!It's everything that we feared. Actually I mean it's something thoughright, no there's some good things to it like yeah, an a lot of money, but itis some money. Like that's going to help a lot of people. You know it'sgiving a hundred million dollars. I hundred and fifty million somethinglike that to the healthcare Yo Kno front lines, Ohospitals. So that's certainly good yeah I'll agree that that's wher theysupposed to be that money. An. I don't agree that giving bread crumbs to theAmerican people as good, though, because it satisfies people in themoment and then they kind of forget and get definitely noesent. I don't thinkwell you shouldn't forget: People are going to forget they're, going to getthat check and they're going to fucking forget and if this thing cantinues onI'm not going to forget when it doesn't even cover the rent, like people won'tforget, like they're, still going to need to pay rent that and like threeweeks from now and they're like well, this doesn't even cover rent like thou.That's what I'm hoping I'm hoping that all of America can't cover the rent,because something needs to be done here and it needs to be like a lot of peoplepissed off. There is a movement to have rent andmortgages payments withheld in the next coupledays. Okay, that's that to me is a good startto me. That's better than a twelve hundred dollar stimulus tech check. Ifyou tell everybody, hey you don't have to pay mortgage, you do T have to bepayrent for three months: that's going to go away further. What we have to dois just put everything on pause right now, literally, that's SA W! That's whatwe're trying to do and we have the ability and the capacity this countrymakes a lot of money. We have a lot of tax revenue. We can put everything onpause and just dip into our savings account essentially as a nation andjust beat this virus. That's what we have to do, how fucking stupid or everybody. What do you think put it on Passay, a collective vacationas a country at home, mastacation in front of your TV, everybody, press,Paus and boom bat? Will we done with this? Don't reditate? They should dowell radicate this thing in record time and get back to the economy being back to where it was. If everybody goesback to where they were when we left off and we could we could make thathappen, but this is being mismanaged at every fucking turn and I fear for this country. Idroleyeah, like our like state like it's a hodge pod right of states coming, youknow, figuring out what they're doing in each state o combat this when itshould be a federal response or it's a blanket response, so there's conformityand what we're all doing, because some states have you know, stay at homeborders, I think. As of the sporning, it was twenty fiveand I think three more states that I saw today announce that theywere issuing that the same orders, but it should be all fifty states right. Soyou can't just have each state doing what what they think is necessary. Itshould be all of us doing the same thing. So we kick this pandemic. You know and flaten the curve,and some of these tads are like er in one state and other state doesn't do it,then people from that statear in fect and they travele to a state that bright,you know, go through the pain of staying at home for several weeks likeand then it's all fucked and we have a second outbreak. Exactly. That'sprobably, what's going to happen because of lack of testing. Thesestates that think that they have like twenty cases or whatever there's morethan that, the the whole state is just the whole country is teaming with this.fucking virus is fucking everywhere,...

...so just assume that I've heard a couplereports that there are companies that have created testing that you can have it like in amatter of minutes for positive past. That is a good thing before we wrap upfor the night the week I want to get tere Australia'woin David is a covid. Patient Davidactually has covid nineteen David. How are you feeling? Was He patient, zero in Australia? OmanI'm way way, fucking better whoo. So I'm I'm at the end of my self isolation. SoI've got twenty seven hours to go and yeah, I think, go oh good. I all adto hear that you're feeling better. You Sound, like you, have just a morehealth right now so last week, you're heping along I'm a brandnew man on FISpumping in the sky like it, but it's getting it's getting hectic out thereand I suppose in can comparison. I'll just tell you, where quickly, Brecqwickly were straglis out, where we're really trying to bend the curb downlike we're, basically on complete lockdown, so unless you're literallygoing to the doctor or the shops you're not allow their outside your home,there's all public gatherings over to people. This is fbefore we. This is forthe entire country of Australia in Thay country. Okay, you can populationacross state lines, Huh. What's the population of Australia,twenty five million okay, so it's like Californiaari yeah, so it's more than it's Erie, like I busted my dron out the other day and I took Hir for a bit of a fly and yeah.You just see nothing out there. It's just yeah! It's like it goes down outthere, but yeah. Everyone is basically on completelockdown, we're doing video conferencing for doctors, all food andmedications being home, delivered yeah we're just on completing out alockdown. So well, that's good! That's what we weresaying needs to be done here: Ose Jus, liing, the food. It look honestly it absolutely sucks,but if you do it for a week or two you'll just see a massive difference, ahuge difference and everyone was a bit reluctant after I spoke to you guyslast week, literally the next t e very next morning we went to the next stageof lockdown and since then we're just recording less and less cases and lessand less depths, so it can be controlled. So hopefully trump pullshis thumb out of his orange ass and he decides to lock down things a littlebit further. If you hunker down a little bit more, then you guys will getover it, but like Austray, is really rooting for you guys, because we knowit's getting out of control and and sincerely Australia wishes America thebest and all of Idobu Lesas like it's.
