Shit, man. Good luck, and hope you recover fast and safely
I hope you have a safe recovery too. Get plenty of rest, drink lots of water:) i also had covid before it's awful well at least my symptoms were.
What were your symptoms?
My sister and mum tested posted a month or so ago. No symptoms for them luckily.Symptoms are continuous cough, with headache, high temperature... And can sometimes cause vomiting and diarea on the last 2 days of the isolation.
@PaganWarrior Thank you
You're welcome. I know this because when you're infected here in the UK, an NHS will keep in touch to see how you're doing and coping etc.
@PaganWarrior I just got a call from a nurse here asking me how I'm doing today after my infusion yesterday.
That's good. It's nice to know they do care and take the time to check on people. One we had for mum and sister was a lovely woman. Really kind.
@smahala1991 i had chills, horrible fever, body aches, and migranes. I felt so shitty for days it was so weird and of course awful! Just awful. I didn't even wanna get out of bed then like 3 or 4 days later, i felt completely normal and much better. I cared for the covid as i would the flu.
@smahala1991 : And how are you doing now?
@PaganWarrior better, went back to work today
This has absolutely nothing to do with the question
Trump doesn't give a RAT'S ASS about anybody but himself! FUCK DONALD TRUMP. He knew the Republicans would only allow $600 and he was fine with that UNTIL he realized he could fuck over America and trick stupid people into thinking he is some kid of hero. He is a dickwad, pure and simple.
@supercutebutt All of that is true. So to answer the question about the $600, I think everyone should get Mitch McConnell's monthly salary, and he should get $600 a month for the remainder of his Congressional term.
@loveslongnails Sounds good to me.
@supercutebutt he said a long time ago, "go big", more than once. did he not? I agree with what he said in recent speech that the legislation was not good enough and filled with junk. What was he supposd to say? "Hey, this is great, I'll sign right away. Great job? " He said exactly what I thought.
Except for the notion that had McConnell maintained the election was stolen, and urged the Senate to overturn it, trump would have signed a bill with NO stimulus checks if it got to his desk. Trump doesn't suddenly give a shit about "real working Americans" - he just wants to butt fuck Moscow Mitch and somehow look like a good guy again, refocusing the light on himself. When are those trumptards going to learn?
@lightbulb27 Look at trump twitter feed from the past 5-6 days. I do not see a single mention about the stimulus. He has been grilling republicans who believe biden won the election instead of calling for republicans to make a larger stimulus deal.
@lightbulb27 The last time trump mentioned it was on like dec.19, and even then he was blaming china and just saying that something needs to be done. But, regardless, I TOTALLY agree with u. The average American is 5,000 dollars and debt and these people are giving fucking 600 bucks?
@loveslongnails maybe I'm a simple minded person. I just see him as a hard nosed business man because I've worked with them before. He does not come across as a calculating backstabbing politician. He will stab in the face directly. I think people are projecting politician onto him. He's another level of narcissistic or sociopath, he's definitely a different nut, some kind of "king" complex. But, when he makes decisions, I generally agreed with them about this stuff specifically.I don't think Trump could say anything to ever satisfy any Democrat. If there is a problem with the covid bill... it lays squarely on those who wrote it. It was Pelosi last time around that wanted $200million for the Kennedy Center, and only wanted like $100 million this go around. WTF? Please take her ice cream away. Who put the Smithsonian musium requests in that bill? And 1.2 billion for Egypt? Why? That has nothing to do with Trump. Start holding your representataives accountable to explain why they are doing this. Trump is the one holding their feet to the fire, which is what a president should do. I hope JB would do the same. Stop blaming Trump, he didn't write this crap.
@Superticklighgirl Agree, he's been preoccupied for years, lately with getting elected as his #1. He only cares about winning election by some stroke of genius. He ain't gonna win. Congress should not be shutting down peoples lives without providing temporary funding to ensure we can eat and stay in our homes and keep the electric on. They could even go further and stimulate by pushing electric cars or infrastruture and such... and they will. That create jobs. were' gonna have massive inflation from all this at some point, but this is a war... on a virus and have to deal with it like that. EVERYONE SHOULD BE GROWIG A GARDEN. It bugs the crap out of me pople always talk about "gonna giv emoney to food bank". Where is that food coming from? It's being pulled out of the hands of those less fortunate. Everyone should have been planting fruit and berry trees and a garden, like was doing last 10 years. I gave away a lot of produce. Shame on us for being lame and dump. Lets hope we wake up.
You know absolutely NOTHING about Trump based on your callow comments. Instead you throw up straw men to deflect from the fact that virtually EVERY bill that gets passed in Congress has side shit in it. Should it be that way - no, but that's how it gets done. To suggest that Trump suddenly objects to this vehemently makes me agree with your assessment that you're a simple minded person.Trump is not just some "hard nosed businessman" as you suggest. Many of those people still have integrity, are not pathological lying scumbags and have not gone into bankruptcies to avoid debts while screwing over entire cities ( go read about Atlantic City). But as low as the bar has gone under trumpfus, it's now reached a low that has no words. He has now pardoned 4 convicted Blackwater mercenaries who shot up an Iraqi roundabout for no goddamn reason, killing 19 and injuring many. Their claim of self defense was entirely debunked. Yet trump has freed them, along with his many, many criminal friends. That, my uninformed reader, is an ATROCITY, from a man who only knows how to behave atrociously. Go educate yourself, please, not only about him, but how Congress works, for better or worse.
@loveslongnails social media is the worst mechanism for expressing opinions and perspectives, it always degrades and pople don't seek common ground. Our opinions are based upon perceptions of truth and emotional attachments. I don't love trump, he's an ass. But we kinda needed an ass is how I saw it and he's done/said a lot I agree with that others didn't have the backbone for. I say again, I would want my president, whether it's president trump, joe, kamala, pete buttiget, or god forbid pelosi or AOC (puking my guts out)... to say exactly what he said. Why can't people take things at face value and support right positions rather than always cooagulate to their hate? I support Joe doing the same. I won't get into the mercinaries, not informed on that yet. I will say I agreed when he pardoned several military soldiers years back and Obama did not. I agree more often with T than disagree. Doesn't mean I like the guy, I DID NOT VOTE FOR HIM the first time because of his personality. But he turned out better than I thought. But I do see the other view that he is one arrogant sob. There's no way to reach people who despise him, I have friends in that view and it's an impossible conversation. I just accept and support what I see as good/bad decisions. His decision on that corrupt bill, was exactly what I want president to do... whether they've been doing that for 40 years or not.
I thought of a way for him to improve his speech. He should hav epulled a "pelosi" and torn up a printed 5000 page version of it on camera, kept the part about $600, drawn a slash through it and wrote $2000 (orwhatever $, something large), and put signature spots at the bottom for the leaders to sign.
If he were a REAL leader, he'd have let that be known months ago. Your perceptions are quite naïve, and you're being a one issue dude about it at that. It's another last ditch ploy to "look good" because he knows at this point, his veto will be overridden rather than the bill changed. You're a sucker if you fall for it. Not informed on the mercenaries? How convenient !! What they did was un - fucking - forgiveable, dude. They weren't even SOLDIERS. But besides that, how about all the other convicted, lying friends he pardoned? Not enough corruption for you? They ADMITTED lying to the FBI, to the special prosecutor, to illegal dealings with Russia, and more. They admitted it. And now they're free, because the President has NO regard for the rule of law, or justice, as if he knows what that is. And NO, we didn't NEED an ass, we needed someone to stand up to McConnell - the original problem. That didn't happen obviously, as Mitch became yet another lap dog. Now that he's not anymore, Trump hates him. Of course. Trump did and is still doing far, FAR more damage than any good. As for my loathing him, I have every good reason - hundreds of them from before he took office to all that he's polluted while being there. I was aware of his dealings long ago. My family has had interactions with him in business, and let me say you don't know a tenth of the shit stories about him, all of which are true.I have my facts about him. You say trump despisers are impossible to talk to, but that's because most of us know the facts while trump supporters rarely if ever do. And when they don't LIKE the facts, they make up their own because their master does. I guess his past 4 years, and his deteriorating breakdown since the election, just aren't enough for you, huh?
@loveslongnails I read a little on the military pardons, I agree with those. Mercenaries... why would he care? Im not sure what to say about that without having lots of facts. Put people in harms way, they do evil crap and make some bad choices. You see that with the police... we just lost 2 more black people this week in my city by white cops. it's hitting the news outlets now. The problem is fear. The real problem wasn't Trump pardoning, it was Bush. Anyone who does business with Trump goes into the idiot category for me, or maybe people just had to learn. I wouldn't have him coat my driveway. He's a crook. But he looks like he's being a crook on behalf of America, and so many people favored him. The difference is perception. Maybe you we should create a list of what we think he did right and wrong in another post. I see a lot of good, but I bet you see none of it and only bad. regarding the ladies post here. $600 remains a slap in the face. Go to store... poof!!! $600 is gone. Were going to need a few thousand each for many people and some need more. Joltin Joe will be asking and begging for 5 grand probably.
Before I forget, Merry Christmas! This is all just fun and games, we have no control. Wish you all on the thread the best in life.
Pelosi and McConnell will either override his veto or they’ll just wait for Biden to take office. That Covid bill will pass one way or another.
They say they will send trump a new bill today
@badfurday2020 Dems rejected removing the foreign aid and the GOP rejected the bigger stimulus checks. They had the votes to override a veto on the original bill. If something isn’t agreed upon soon, which is doubtful, expect an override vote.
Trump will just hold onto the bill for 10 days.
They give us the bare minimum
