The older providers at my wife's clinic are ordered to"work from home" (including the owner) and everyone else is encouraged to work from home as much as possible. Not sure how you examine patients from home. Our 21 year old babysitter is still quarantining herself, so my dad is watching the girl.

Round Trip flights to Hawaii are $300 right now. I've never been to the Big Island.

It's amazing. We were in Kona a few weeks ago, had an Airbnb right on the water. Our first morning we couldn't get out to the beach as early as we wanted to because we had to sit on our deck watching whales. Two mornings later it was dolphins. Effing wildlife was keeping me from snorkeling with all those pretty tropical fish.

We didn't snorkel every day. One day we went out to Volcanoes National Park. But the food will more than make up for the low airfare- I spent more at Safeway than I've spent on some cars. Granted, we got our drinks there too and I've had some real POS cars in my time, but wow, it's expensive to be there.

Well, Biden's moving to get closer to Bernie's supporters, so it only makes sense for Romney to go after Andrew Yang's people.

Now you are throwing words together meaninglessly.

78% of U.S. workers are living paycheck to paycheck. Yes, we are supposed to have an emergency savings, but I do not have one--because of those $3.25 double Whoppers that I did not need?

Everyone's circumstances are different, but I came out of prison $200 wealthier than I went in, and I accumulated wealth at the rate of $2 per 10hr workday.

When I got out, I was in pretty good shape with a $10/hr job assisting a brick mason and working 12hr days. I'd have fallen off a ladder or cut my fingers off with the brick saw if I had kept that job. As it turned out, I landed a 6 month contract to deploy new workstations and laptops at $17/hr. The company I contracted at offered me a job, but I had to decline since they didn't hire felons.

Then I got a full time job at $17/hr and lived in my car for 2 years. After that, I rented a room in a townhouse for $400/mo. 6 years of that allowed me to purchase a 4 bedroom house with 20% down. Along the way I purchased a 4 unit rental in OK.

Are you working for your money, or is your money working for you?

No, he's under reporting. This isn't about your particular needs.

I won't do you homework for you, but one Eastern city is passing/has passed legislation that prevents the sale of firearms and ammunition, not that they would do it, it's just in case things fall apart.

In congress irrelevant riders are creating resistance that is deflecting back and forth in a Hall of Mirrors.

Microsoft will chip you, for your own safety, of course...

How many trillions to the banking system so it won't be inconvenienced?

Never fail to profit from crisis.


edit:
Oh, Here's the big one. Three democrats left in the race, and two of them are saying they will have a female vice-president, but it would be a woman who has already dropped out. As Mini-AOC would say, "What's up with that?"

Kevin's wife and in-laws have pre-existing conditions and he needed groceries, so he went shopping in a hazmat suit and wearing a respirator:

If you follow Tim Pool, he explains how you can't take off a hazmat suit by yourself properly, you need help from someone else in a hazmat suit. You're probably wondering about the Last Guy.
