    Just checking the demographics of this board. Feel free to reply to this thread with your personal situation. Myself, I will not. I make too much money.

    At the end of the day, I'm very thankful I still have a job. Still not sure if I'm getting a stimulus.

    I'll get one, since I'm retired and on a fixed income. Why would anyone be "ashamed" to get what is effectively a small refund of what they've paid in taxes over the years? Isn't it really their money at the end of the day?

    This WaPo link was posted previously in another thread a week or so ago. My income is sufficiently high enough that I won't get the full amount, but looks like I'll get about 95% of the max.

    I have mixed emotions. If the government is giving me "free" cash, it's kinda hard to take a principled stand and turn it down. OTOH, future generations will be paying that much more interest on all those T-bills we auction off to Saudi and the ChiComs.

    Look, might as well take it .... because you not taking it won’t make a difference as to whether they give the $$$ away. And because the quantum easements they’ll need to execute to “fund” this $$$ will drive up commodities and soft inflation, so what you currently have won’t have the same buying power anyway

    Take the check, buy a stock or other depressed equity and catch the wave when it goes back up..... thereby hedging against the soft inflation (and perhaps hard inflation) they’re gonna cause

    It's not really a refund since the money we've paid in has already been spent. This is all borrowed money. I have a hard time understanding why retirees get a check. How have you been negatively affected?

    Yep. Nothing is free. Someone has to pay for it.

    Correct - and they’ll pay for this by deflation of the current currency supply through QE. So basically everyone’s value based upon the dollar takes a hit

    I make less than $75K. I'm affected because I had to take a leave of absence at my part time job, and it filled the gap between my income and the withdrawal I must take when I turn 72in a couple of years.
    But I file taxes just like you. So...you bet I'll take my...rebate. Better?

    I should get a direct deposit. I'm probably the poorest guy here. I have 10 cents more than I need. I don't live paycheck to paycheck.

    A cancer diagnosis in April, 2003 ended my 12 year career as a "professional tourist." I was off 4 years in recovery. Investments provided me with a tidy income.

    @BSC911

    yet you vote for Lamumba, Madam Chiang and Biden people who punish producers and redistribute earned wealth?

    odd.

    Do you realize that if you reply to my post that you don’t have to tag me? It’s redundant.

    I don’t recognize any of those that you mentioned other than Biden. Yes, I will vote for him. While not the most exciting, at least he doesn’t lie through his teeth every time he speaks.

    But at least you get to brag about how smart you are in every post. So you’ve got that going for you.

    He sure did. As the US does all the time. Just not unilaterally by the wannabe dictator and election fixer.

    The elitist mindset that is mostly in the Dim party but claim to have Middle America's best interest at heart.

    If you think the elitist Pubs have your best interests in mind then you are more naive than I gave you credit for.

    Of course, there are elitists on both sides but Hollywood libs seem to be voicing their hatred for conservative Americans at every opportunity. When has Nancy ever said anything nice about Middle America?

    I drink George Dickel White Label and an occasional lager beer. I sure don't need any of it if it cost as much as my light bill.

    Don't get me wrong, it's bad ass bourbon. Just not going to buy at the liquor store every week. I only buy it during the holidays ever since my oldest drinks the rest of the bottle when he comes over for a visit.:mad:
