    This stimulus pay, 1200 dollars for qualified person(s), excluding those that don't 'really' need it, is going to cost what? 2 billion? That's crazy borderlining insanity....

    I mean, 2 billion can supply way more than a bi-monthly pay to most U.S of America salary earners. So... maybe this 1200 dollar stimulus paycheck will help those that 'really truly' do have need to pay for rent lest street life is considered, right?

    Well. That's what assistance could be about. Giving a meal, sharing some food to those who are without a job, who are zeroed out in their checking account and barely keeping their savings' account from falling in the negative, so that when this whole covid-19 'world-wide' pandemic (?) decides to go back into its nice resting place, they (the assisted) will NOT be on the streets to be ABLE to resume their life, liberty and 'pursuit' of hapiness. And this is why so many U.S of America citizens defend this right as Mr. Lee wrote in his song;

    'If tomorrow all my things were gone,
    I'd worked for all my life.
    And I had to start again,
    With just my children and my wife...
    ....God bless the U.S.A'

    ... right?


    2 billion? Say what? Please don't say anything like 200 billion or something even more 'crazy'...

    Anything above the 200 billion 'stars' could verge on leaving this galaxy(?).?


    This galaxy, and not Samsung, supposedly has around that many 'stars'. We are in The Milky Way Galaxy. And with our Solar system's sun taking care of this solar system's planets, 8 planets + Pluto, and with this 'sun' in this solar system being 1 'star', this Milky Way Galaxy, which supposedely has around 200 billion 'stars' give or take a million(?), or so, could mean.... each 'star' has its own solar system with its planets and moons and Plutos with everything else the Milky Way has, distances included.

    But what does all of this have to do with this planet's covid-19, on the verge of becoming a road explorer, right?

    Assistances, helping, humans, animals, life, air, sea, land. Mercedes with its 3 pointed 'star' emblem.... air, land and sea. Drive Mercedes and don't think you are greater than air, land and/or sea.

    Humbling? Why? because you can afford all the gasoline you desire? That is not humbling.


    The symptoms of covid-19 can be much much more 'humbling'.


    Sometimes these police scare me. Not because of their physical strength and law abilities and authorizations but because are they not afraid of being 'coughed' upon by those they do NOT keep distances away from? Do they not know, have knowedge, that they are not 'greater' than bus drivers; cult leaders not excluding, either?

    Holy!

    Can't even follow that.

    What exactly are you trying to say? Is this about the stimulus, intergalactic travel, or gasoline?

    I'm so confused.

    There was a song by Soundgarden called 'black hole sun'.


    'Black hole sun
    Won't you come
    And wash away the rain?
    Black hole sun
    Won't you come?
    Won't you come?'


    They received what they asked for...

    "Black Hole Sun" is a song by the American rock band Soundgarden. Written by frontman Chris Cornell, the song was released in 1994 as the third single from the band's fourth studio album Superunknown (1994). It is arguably the band's most recognizable and most popular song, and remains a well known song from the 1990s. The song topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it spent a total of seven weeks at number one. Despite peaking at number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, "Black Hole Sun" finished as the number-one track of 1994 for that listing. Worldwide, the single reached the top 10 in Australia, Canada, France and Ireland.

    A sly fox song:




    Luke 13:32 "And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected."


    Working day after day, 40 hours a week... this isn't the way to live? Well, some might agree but work laws might need to be modified to suit these philosophical theories of 'work, society and the personal (doll-ar)'.


    -ar
    word-formation element meaning "pertaining to, of the nature of," from Latin -arem, -aris "of the kind of, belonging to," a secondary form (by dissimilation) of -alis, used after syllables with an -l- (such as insularis for *insulalis, stellaris for *stellalis).

    Pun...

    I once had a 5
    needed another
    I was dissatified
    not pleasing myself with others.

    So i asked and begged
    and i received an 8
    $
    perfect size for the doll-ar.

    Originally i was taler
    until i became thaler
    from there to gulden to gold
    And now? well the U.S and Canada call me
    'doll-ar'.

    On an island somewhere
    the term dolla was used;
    after the use of coins
    silver and gold,
    was supposedly the only forms of monies
    which could be used.


    Standard weights
    and standard sizes.
    From 5 to 8.
    working hard for the (m)oney.

    (m)oney

    onan island
    onae ny.


    It's startling to see
    how the love of monies
    truly is
    the root
    which causes all distresses.

    Having 1 isn't satisfying
    i need several more
    monies as well as honies.

    I think today
    they deem this life-style
    as the 'rich' and famous.


    There is a name
    only 1
    in all of life
    that was given
    when there were none given
    before this name.

    Before the son of Zachar(i)as and El(i)zabeth was born
    the child's name never was.

    There is the Godly one;
    also the mal- one.

    mal-
    word-forming element of Latin origin meaning "bad, badly, ill, poorly, wrong, wrongly," from French mal (adv.), from Old French mal (adj., adv.) "evil, ill, wrong, wrongly" (9c.), from Latin male (adv.) "badly," or malus (adj.) "bad, evil" (fem. mala, neuter malum), from Proto-Italic *malo-, from PIE *mol-o-, probably from PIE root *mel- (3) "false, bad, wrong."

    https://www.etymonline.com/word/mal-#etymonline_v_6715


    just like the standards and the weights.
    balanced and just;
    false and justified.


    before illegality occurred
    With the breaching of Constitution;
    minting coins of gold and/or silver for currencies
    balances of weights
    were endorsed with another Constitution point...
    The right to keep
    a well ordered militia.


    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.​

    Keeping the home-front in order
    or would you prefer...
    keeping it regulated?


    The opposite of order is disarray.
    The opposite of regulated is 'corruption'?

    When a piece of 'food' becomes 'rotten',
    it has become corrupted.


    corrupt (v.)

    mid-14c., "deprave morally, pervert from good to bad;" late 14c., "contaminate, impair the purity of; seduce or violate (a woman); debase or render impure (a language) by alterations or innovations; influence by a bribe or other wrong motive," from Latin corruptus, past participle of corrumpere "to destroy; spoil," figuratively "corrupt, seduce, bribe" (see corrupt (adj.)).

    Figuratively, a personal opinion.

    contaminate, debase, render impure, destroy, spoil...
    are not personal opinions in regards to corrupted 'food(s)'.


    Whuse opinion should i receive as Truth?

    directly from Latin corruptus, past participle of corrumpere "to destroy; spoil," figuratively "corrupt, seduce, bribe," from assimilated form of com-, here probably an intensive prefix (see com-), + rup-, past participle stem of rumpere "to break," from a nasalized form of PIE *runp- "to break" (source also of Sanskrit rupya- "to suffer from a stomach-ache;" Old English reofan "to break, tear").

    A 1000 times a thousand day(s)... is... 1 million?

    If a thousand day(s) is 2.739 years, then a million day(s) is... 2739 years?

    It would take 2739 years to 'spend' 1 million doll-ar(s) if everyday 1 doll-ar was 'spent'... interest and returns excluding.

    If 10 doll-ar(s) a day was spent, interest and returns excluding, it would take 273.9 years.

    And if 100 doll-ar(s) a day, same application(s), then 27.39 years.

    At 1,000 doll-ar(s) a day, same non interest and returns, then 2.739 years.

    This for 1 million(s) of doll-ar(s).
    Then there is the added 0 for 10 million(s).
    For the 100 million(s)... then multiply by 10 to get to 1 billion....etc...


    And huh? Trillion(s) of stimulus payment(s)?

    Astronomical!


    Did you 'know' that the word nasa in the Hebrew language means:

    5375. nasa or nasah
    Strong's Concordance
    nasa or nasah: to lift, carry, take
    Original Word: נָשָׂא
    Part of Speech: Verb
    Transliteration: nasa or nasah
    Phonetic Spelling: (naw-saw')
    Definition: to lift, carry, take
    NAS Exhaustive Concordance
    Word Origin
    a prim. root
    Definition
    to lift, carry, take


    as when 'the temple sexual workers' i.e., 'hired for sexual trade, work', etc... lifted their 'prayers' to their local 'deities' in exchange for 'revenue earned for 'good(s)' exchanged'?

    Too difficult to believe?


    What if i told you that this form of 'praying' occurred? Would i be a liar?

    Oh, great. A member who is having a psychotic break.

    I can't even open his profile and find out where he's from so I can look up his local mental health services, to point him in the right direction.

    delade if you can understand me, call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room and tell them you're having a psychotic break. It's nothing to be ashamed about. You're not alone. In fact I had a psychotic break several years ago.

    Which is more useful, the Sun or the Moon? The Moon is more useful since it gives us light during the night, when it is dark. Whereas the Sun shines in the daytime, when it is light anyway.
