If your glass was half full of muddy arsenic laced water and McD's called to tell you they won't need you this week you might have a different outlook on the financial situation, dontchaknow.

They'll have at least one $1000 check soon for every taxpayer in the house. Dont panic, lad

We got us some real live fortune tellers here
Knowing the history of the Great Depression is not fortune telling. We are already seeing empty food shelves and it will get a lot worse before we make America great again.
Where did all that money go that was used to empty the shelves?
85% went straight to Wall Street. That's the problem with a market economy, money should stay in the local economy. Most Americans have no idea how we are being ripped off.
So all the Walmarts, Kroger, Publix, Ralph's, Meiers et al immediately invested 85% of their windfall on "Wall Street"? How will they restock the shelves?

The real answer is you are making chit up
Those corporations are publicly owned so the fat cats on Wall Street take their slice right off the top before restocking the shelves. If the corporation loses money or goes bankrupt, the big dogs still get paid. It took food riots in 1931 to get jobs and worker rights. We haven't seen the fallout from this crash but the military is already preparing to keep the people off the streets.

And you really think $1,000 will keep all the unemployed bread winners refrigerators full and their rent paid until the end of this plague Mr Pete? Of course you don't. But then you obviously don't give a damn so no big deal, right!

$1,000 each week would make a big difference but that won't be happening Mr Pete. Your Grand Old Plutocrats will see to it that whatever the 'working' people get will come through the employers who laid them off or through state unemployment offices and either way there will be a great deal of scrutiny on those at the bottom and very little on those at the top who can skim themselves a good piece of the action that will be reported as going to 'workers.'

There's a difference between how they're handling their daily cash flow and how they used their tax break windfall. Many companies used their windfall to buy back shares, not invest in the company. The airlines are a good example.

It's amazing how loose the Tea Baggers are regarding deficits when the Grand Ole Plutocrats are in power while during the previous administration they were totally consumed with President Obama having a balanced budget. Ain't that amazing.
