We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

But 500? Geez, no.
Iím expecting any day now that we find out that the WWE got some of this money.

As far as I know there wasnít fraud, just corporations and lawyers gaming the system. Canít they get some of those lawyers to put language in there so it ensures that the money goes to the local restaurant and bars?
They couldnít create a smaller company just for this.

Everything has to be in place on a certain date prior to this. A poster here bought another company just after the break off point and couldnít claim ppp on it.

You arenít saying that right

Well people better get shit figured out soon because the more people that lose their jobs the less tolerance there is going to be for these shelter orders regardless. People are going to start focusing solely on their own situation and as we are already seeing in spots, they will start voicing their protest. And it won't take long before it isn't very peaceful.

Maybe that's why California's numbers are so low...
Even in Central California thats how it it. Everyone is just being smart about it, and our numbers are fairly low. i think its about 63 people have it, 23 have recovered and 3 deaths. People can rag about this social distancing all they want, but its helping.

The new cases also went up in NY last night so it must not have had to do with adding in those ď probableĒ cases

I would imagine that all of these larger companies that benefited from the SBA loans have had DBA's and shell companies on the books for years.

And companies like Ruth's Chris are international, making their loan even less important.

I though they said they were going to try and report them backwards to the dates they thought they happened or something? Meh, we will see how it goes tonight. Maybe they are back to 2 times a day?

Yea, 500 employees is not a small business. I tend to think of small businesses as places with 3 or fewer locations (for restaurants) & smaller than 50-75 employees.

Very very few are ragging about social distancing now which is good to see.

I don't think people in general are ragging about social distancing. I think people are starting to get tired of doing what they are told, losing their job and then having people who aren't impacted in the same way telling them "tough shit, you're gonna do it even longer and your job be damned".

I mean it gets to the point that when you have 30mil people out of work and you will, especially now, people will get tired of being told by someone who is not losing their job, who is living in a nice house and is not suffering nearly the same to just "suck it up and deal with it".
