And that sums up what most people did. So that's my real issue dee. Let's just say you are a teacher or a principal or a street department worker in our little town. They didn't (to my knowledge) miss a day of pay. Therefore, instead of continuing to live within their means, we gave them money to allow them to "buy ahead". By what method of fiscal responsibility does that make sense? Meanwhile, landlords did without rent from their tenants because of the no eviction rule. Did these people save that money and pay their rent or did they go out and buy big screens, clothes, drugs and beer? That's simply not fair.
But I did give to one charity that helps refugees so they don't have to be detained when they turn 18. I did that because I knew Trump would disapprove.
God bless you for donating to a charity. Not that I would give a nickel to illegals coming here but I do credit you for at least not being greedy.
No one will ever make me believe that my wife and I should have gotten any of the stimulus money. We, even in retirement, are blessed enough to make more money than many people in Granite City. That's why we actually donated ours in full to meaningful charities.
When you teach a man to fish he can eat every day. When you catch the fish for him, clean it, cook it and serve it to him, he'll be back tomorrow and ask you for lobster.
Makes no sense.
