Mark Cuban proposes $1,000
coronavirus stimulus check every 2 weeks

Original Article

The federal government has already sent a one-time check of up to $1,200 to millions of American families, but according to Mark Cuban, the stimulus is not enough to offset the economic pain of the coronavirus pandemic. The billionaire entrepreneur proposed the government issue $1,000 checks to every American household every two weeks for the next two months, with the caveat that the money must be spent within 10 days of receipt or it expires. It would cost about $500 billion, Cuban estimated. (Snip) "It's time to face the fact that PPP didn't work. Great plan, difficult execution. No one's fault. The only thing that will save businesses is consumer demand.

Comments:

I'm all for this, if Cuban is the one signing the checks.

How about, everything's open except for senior homes, hospitals, and care centers. Get rid of the masks, the social distancing and open up everything. Masks don't work. The N95 allows any virus in under .3 microns. The rona is .125 microns so it goes right through. The distancing part doesn't really work either.

Easy for him to say. It’s always a East thing to do to suggest spending tax dollars on something. There is no end to all of the good things it can be spent on in the name of helping people out.

He's pretty generous with other peoples money. Those people being the taxpayer. Plus the gooberment doesn't have that kind of dough. So let's dig the debt canyon deeper so that $1000 buys a bagel and a cup of coffee. What could go wrong?

Here in Texas, we've been dealing with publicity-hound, Mark Cuban for years. None of us knows why he believes his opinion is of any merit or is wanted by those who are forced to listen. So, he's made a lot of money. Hooray for him. So, he has built a terrific professional basketball team. Neither of those accomplishments make his opinion on how this country should be run worth any more than my own opinion.

How would they know if you “spent” it? What if you saved it? I guess Cuban (please bow down before him) meant cash or deposit it. Or more likely, just poor reporting.

Cuban says PPP didn't work???? Why, because people are not allowed to go out to closed stores / businesses to spend money or to go to work to earn money! Businesses could not or were not allowed to reopen so were unable to bring back employees to either earn money or sell product. Every time I hear a politician or someone like Cuban say "Just send everyone some money to make up for being stuck at home", they fail to account for the fact that everything is being forced to be closed so there is no place to buy stuff. What don't they get?

I think this is a good idea. Once a society decides to have a welfare system, then it has a moral obligation to help anyone caught in exigent circumstances. The mechanics are simple: send out debit cards to everyone who filed income tax.

I agree. Mark Cuban should pay all households $1000 a week as long as the crisis continues, until he's broke. And then Bezos, Gates and all of the other dem-supporting billionaires can pick up the responsibility, one at a time, until they're all broke. If they want to support democrat policies, let them jump in with both feet.

Glad you brought up the mask thing #1. A couple things. First, as you said the corona virus is extremely small, 0.06 microns to 0.12 microns. The mask being able to filter out 0.3 microns is nowhere mentioned in the documentation from the manufacturer, in our case, 3M, for our N95 masks. I'd like to know where that figure came from because it's been repeated all over the place. Second, 3M warns users this is for non-hazardous materials, and will not stop vapors, odors or oil droplets. Third, their is no airtight seal with the mask as with a military NBC protective mask, the M50. Speaking of the M50, this is the only way I know of to get the protection everybody thinks they get with an N95, or any of these designer pieces of cloth they advertise on this site. It has an airtight seal, its filters handle known bacteria and viruses, and it has an additional electro-static material to capture anything which get through the basic filters. Wearing the cloth and paper thing, especially outside is near useless.

Every two weeks?????? Sheesh I still haven't gotten the first check. IRS site said it isn't even scheduled to go out until May 22. The government can't even hand out free money efficiently. It's silly to send out money indiscriminately. That $2000 twice weekly would go to people like Cuban, who don't need it, and to the deceased, which the IRS is sending the first round of checks to. Just open up the economy! That's the greatest stimulus we could do.

I just read the rest of the replies so I need to add this to #’s 1 and 27... I had my annual physical today and was require to wear a mask the whole time I was at the doctor’s office. I haven’t been wearing one at all for several weeks now. I was there for over an hour and by the time I left the building I felt like I had been sitting in a rain forest breathing wet air. Seems to me that all that moisture building up inside the mask would make it the perfect place for all kinds of bacteria to grow. NOT doing that again.

Since the government can't afford this program, why don't the Forbes 500, or at least the top wealthiest, such as Bezos, Gates, Buffet, etc. pony up a few billions that add up to a trillion or more, and pay us all out of their excess holdings? They'll never miss it.

Did he not get the memo? The coronavirus is history. All this crud with masks and plexiglass and tape on the floor is just a fig leaf for the governors to make us think there still is a threat, but there never really was an existential threat that warranted the overreaction we've had. Everyone just rip off your mask and carry on with your life. We're fine and we never really were in that much danger, en masse.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz ordered all National Guard troops activated for the first time in the state’s history Saturday, vowing to put an end to the “wanton destruction” that he pinned on outside forces — from drug cartels to white supremacists. But President Trump seemed to point to leftist agitators and poor leadership for the unrest in Minnesota following the death of George Floyd. “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump tweeted Saturday. Walz told reporters in a pre-dawn briefing: “The absolute chaos — this is not grieving, and this is not making a statement [about an injustice] that we fully acknowledge

Hillary Clinton said Friday that President Trump’s response to the George Floyd-inspired protests in Minnesota is yet another reason for voters to give him the boot in the November election. “The president of the United States is calling for violence against American citizens,” Mrs. Clinton tweeted. “That is so wrong. We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.” “If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now,” she said. Ms. Clinton, who lost to Mr. Trump in the 2016 election, appeared to be alluding to Mr. Trump’s early-morning comments regarding the unrest in the wake of Floyd’s death.

Thursday on MSNBC, former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett said because there is “de minimis vote fraud in our country,” we “should have vote-by-mail in every state.” Jarrett said, “This week, we launched Civic Cities, where we are working with mayors across the country. I started in local government, so I appreciate how mayors really do have a touch on what’s happening in the communities. They are extremely influential. So I asked them to help us engage with the constituents they have. We have 31 mayors off the bat. Many more joined on since then. We’re working in high schools because people who are first-time voters tend to be lifelong voters.

Almost totally absent from the mainstream news Friday, as the violent insurrection in the wake of George Floyd’s death spread to cities nationwide, were the preliminary results of his autopsy. The report was part of the arrest warrant for Derek Michael Chauvin (snip) The brief mention of the autopsy suggests that the case against Chauvin, and possibly his three colleagues assuming they too will eventually be charged, for being totally responsible for the death of Floyd may not be as cut and dried as previously thought.

Joe Biden says "The Breakfast Club" host Charlamagne tha God was "baiting" him leading up to his controversial "you ain't black" remark during their interview last week.

"The leader I've always been," Biden told Lemon.

Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis.

One might think that MSNBC might give Rev. Al Sharpton the day off when the hot topic is protesters burning down buildings. In 1995, Sharpton's protest against the "white interloper" who ran Freddy's Fashion Mart in Harlem led to a fire where seven people died of smoke inhalation (and the arsonist shot himself). Discussing the rioting in Minneapolis on today's Morning Joe, Al Sharpton began by telling protesters that the goal of a fair criminal justice system wouldn't be achieved by "appearing" to be criminal themselves. He warned that people would "exploit" that. A clearly upset Sharpton then said: "As I walked around Minneapolis yesterday . . .
