So I apparently just received my stimulus payment...in the form of a fucking prepaid Visa card.
How the fuck do I pay my mortgage with Visa card?
This administration could fuck up a free lunch by asking for change.

I read that they were doing that.
They're so damn clueless. To me it seems to be trying to force people to buy things rather than pay bills with it. They have no right to do that, and it just shows how completely out of touch they are with reality. Not to mention taking so long, the orange clown said the payments would be so fast. He never lies or exaggerates!

Maybe try Venmo or PayPal to transfer it to your checking account?

... and someone at that Lake of the Ozarks party rested positive. They are now scrambling to contact mass numbers of unknown people.

Good job, Deplorables.

What’s interesting is that the quarantine provided a great opportunity to eradicate many STDs. People should have been encouraged to go get tested and get treated because transmission right now should be almost nonexistent.

I have to download the app from their website in order to transfer it to my account, and can't do it in one shot as there is a daily limit to transfer which is less than my amount, no chance I'm doing that and giving them my account info based on the series of screw ups they have already perpetrated.
Will probably take the cash out at ATMs (will take a few days due to daily limits) then deposit the cash. What a pain in the ass. And the kicker is the no fee ATMs on their network aren't at any banks, they are those little ATMs you see in Walgreen's and Shaw's and such. Ridiculous.
If I ever run into Steve Mnuchin, I am going to punch him in his very punchable face.

You're assuming folks weren't sneaking out of lockdown for hook ups.

I would think a lot fewer are. I mean, it’s not perfect, but it could make a difference.

Uhh this may have already been posted somewhere (maybe even by yourself, i'm sure I picked the link from a post elsewhere):


Covid-19 crisis raises hopes of end to UK transmission of HIV


But its worth posting even if again!

The numbers now still reflect physical distancing in a lot of significant ways (schools and offices closed, no leisure international travel, very depressed regional travel, restrictions of occupancies in public spaces). So if by “get on with it” you mean staying as-is and continuing with a steady infection rate (until the fall, who knows then) that’s probably doable. But if you mean stripping all precautionary measures then I think you’ll be in total lockdown again soon.

The numbers are two weeks behind.

There are massive protests around the nation, and now around the world as well.

I'm not saying just rip off the band-aid - but if these protests don't end in massive spikes in the cities they're taking place in? Yea, we can probably pick up the pace on the phased reopenings.

The protests are outside in what has been gorgeous weather on the east coast at least, and virtually everyone is in a mask.

I feel like it could be ok.
