I've kinda been eyeing this crazy Tiger King thing and someone brought it up in a lunch question this week. Cecily said she was interested and this Netflix Party stuff works super well so why not stream us watching the episode and cracking jokes?!You can go here for details on how to get set up for it: http://baldmove.com/netflix-party/I'll be drinking. Cecily will probably be drinking. Freddy will definitely be drinking. Hell, he might even be the Tiger King, I dunno, I haven't seen it yet. Hope you'll join us!

Basically, if a company keeps a worker on the payroll rather than lay them off, the government will pay 75% of their salary.
Based on GDP the same cost in the US would be 2.5 trillion dollars. Yet the US is proposing a 2 trillion dollar plan with a one time check of 1200 dollars for people. I don't even understand. The odds are so in favor of corporations in this country that it's laughable. I say this as someone who will not lose my job.
I'm so sorry for all the people who need help and the government failing them.
From what I can tell, money is only the incentive that gets people to do the things necessary to run our country. Right now we have another pretty strong incentive!
Tell me I'm crazy. I'm happy to hear that it wouldn't work if I can learn a little in the process.
