Rep Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) suggested that the federal government should be sending a paycheck to Americans to get them to stay home and help stop the spread of the coronavirus. 'To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home,' she tweeted on Thursday. 'Republicans are mad at this when they literally just voted to do just this in March,' Ocasio-Cortez added, in reference to the sole $1,200 stimulus check Congress authorized in the early days of the pandemic and $600 in federal unemployment, which helped people stay home. With no recent stimulus packages passed

We can all get paid to idle at home, just like AOC's core constituency of welfare surfers. Behold, the Democrat Socialist miracle. Sleepy Joe's on board with this, as he said during the last debate. Why not? Money grows on money trees.

Where’s my check? I’m at home. We can pay each other to stay home. Eliminate the need to do that messy laundry. 2000 of you pay me $30 per month, and then I’ll pay 2000 other people $25 per month- only a 16% management fee, very reasonable.

Let's see her tax returns. I'll wager she takes every deduction and gives little or nothing to charity. A typical generous dim who will do everything for everyone - with someone else's money. I recall when Ted (Lyin' in the Senate) Kennedy died people talked about how generous he was.Maybe, but not with Kennedy $$!

She wants the taxpayers to pay off her student loans and now wants to add paying people to stay home. As if another couple of weeks will make a difference. Especially in inner-city cesspools where people live on top of one another and throw parties for hundreds of their closest friends.

Why she is really saying is it’s time for guaranteed universal income. How much to start? At least $600/week for someone single. Add another $300/week per child if you are a parent. That’s just for starters.

So we're all to believe that just because the weather gotten cooler, the virus infections are worse? So if we're all inside because it's cooler outside, and the virus is supposedly spreading, doesn't that prove that lock downs don't work? Why didn't it spread during the summer when things opened up, and more people were together in enclosed locations? The amount of disinformation concerning this thing is just amazing.

A 29-year-old straphanger became the latest New Yorker shoved onto subway tracks on Sunday when he was attacked at a Brooklyn station. The victim was on a northbound 4 train shortly before 11:30 a.m. when his attacker, who had been sleeping, woke up and began screaming at him, police said. It was unclear what the suspect was screaming, the cops said. When the victim and his girlfriend got off at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center stop, the screaming man also got off and followed the couple, then pushed him on the southbound tracks before running off.

Governments across Europe are failing to protect their citizens from toxic air pollution, with most Europeans still breathing filthy air in their cities, according to data. Pollutants from farming, domestic heating and vehicles are beyond the levels needed to ensure breathable air within World Health Organization guidelines, despite EU legislation, government pledges and years of campaigning. Only Ireland, Iceland, Finland and Estonia showed levels of fine particulate matter–one of the most dangerous forms of air pollution–that were below the WHO guidelines in 2018, according to data released on Monday by the European Environment Agency. Exposure to such pollution caused about 417,000 premature deaths

By 2016, the study authors found 3,941 total fractures among the participants.

The United States on Sunday officially pulled out of the Open Skies Treaty, a nearly 20-year-old international agreement allowing nations to conduct unarmed surveillance flights over each other’s territory to collect data on military forces. The move marked the end of a six-month notification process to Russia and other signatory nations. President Trump and other critics have said the treaty isn’t in the U.S. national interest and have accused Russia of barring U.S. reconnaissance flights over regions such as Kaliningrad, where nuclear weapons are suspected of being present.(Snip) Presumptive President-elect Joseph R.

Gov. Phil Murphy on Friday continued to say all options are “on the table” when it comes to fighting the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in New Jersey—but he also suggested it’s irresponsible to close indoor dining or nonessential retail stores without more federal aid. The Democratic governor took aim at a favorite target, Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, as federal lawmakers in Washington remain deadlocked over a new stimulus package. Democrats want a $2.2 trillion bill, while Republicans prefer $500 billion with no aid to state and local government. “As long as Mitch McConnell is sitting on his hands

This is why you don’t swallow conspiracy theories whole-cloth without waiting for evidence to be presented. Amazingly, it appears that Trump’s own campaign is now disowning Sidney Powell’s fairly out there claims about German servers and millions of switched votes. And I don’t say that as someone who wouldn’t want to believe it if there was proof, but there was obviously no proof and plenty to the contrary. Here’s the Trump campaign today essentially telling Powell to go jump in a lake, which is probably the most surprising development of the last several months. Well, this is awkward.
