Tried to read it but couldn't. Pop-ups that kept blocking the entire screen were relentless.

It's much ado over nothing, really. It's companies like Facebook that don't like it because they actually profit from other people sharing things that are copyrighted on their network and then they (Facebook) claims it's not their fault because they didn't post the content.

They (the fear mongers who are actually big social media networks) are saying people will "go after everyday users for sharing a meme". That is completely false and would never happen. It's large providers like Facebook and Twitter that would be sued clear to Mars for having an add on the page where content that is copyrighted is placed. It would make them share that income with the person holding the copyright and they don't want to do that.

That's where this is going. They always use ridiculous cases that would never happen to scare people.

Yea, and they hide behind, that "We are fighting for freedoms bit and speech BS... and then they start suddenly tapping into the act of gaining your trust with remarks like this, ""We're facing a massive eviction crisis and millions are unemployed due to the pandemic, but congressional leaders could only muster $600 stimulus checks for Covid relief."

Really ? Like they care ? They don't give a damn. Their the one's behind the scenes getting the Trillion dollar slice of the pie in this deal. While, they try to incite your rage over what "their politicians like Mitch and the GOP have done to you."

They try to hide and mislead all they can.

What I find distributing is Amy Klobachur; watching that worthless sorry excuse of a so-called democrat, put a good spin on that pile of shit stimulus plan.

I almost threw something at the television she made me so angry! She’s the biggest kiss up little corporatist I can think of.

Trip and fall on a banana pill Amy !

Now Trump is threatening to torpedo the whole stimulus deal. Trump wants 2,000 dollar stimulus checks or he says he'll Veto the bill entirely. Nancy Pelosi is all in saying they can vote on it this week. McConnell is dead quiet.

So why all this drama you wonder?

Well, I think it's much more simple than meets the eye. Trump hasn't given a damn about this stimulus package because he's been busy doing everything he can to overturn the election. Now that he sees that's not going to happen, he's taking revenge on McConnell.

McConnell is the one that didn't want any stimulus checks AT ALL, let alone 1,200 dollar checks. Only because of immense pressure (the race in Georgia) did he cave and agree to 600 dollar checks.

Trump is doing this (threatening a veto unless they do 2,000 dollar checks) because McConnell recognized Biden's victory. Trump knows that McConnell and his hangers on were adamant about no checks or at the very least very small checks. This completely screws McConnell.

Pelosi knows what's going on too, which is why she immediately jumped on the bandwagon. Truth be told, Pelosi doesn't want 2,000 dollar checks either as it is a boatload of money the government doesn't have, but she is definitely all-in when it comes to screwing McConnell.

So now there's going to be one of two things: a secret meeting between Trump and McConnell where McConnell changes his tune and falls back in line with Trump or a very public battle that's going to pretty much screw everybody, especially the American people, and wind up putting any relief off until after Biden becomes president.

You heard it here first.

I already watched the discussions some of them were saying. IF he cared to begin with he would have done something to begin with before now, so why now?

I think he want's to screw the democrats on the other items in the bill, he wants out. He even mentioned that. He want's out. He want's to re-delay the whole situation all over again, and "yes" screw Mitch McConnell all over again of course.

Then again, this could have been a big scam by the both of them from the start. They realized they looked like shit...

What this is also about is GEORGIA. Those 2 - Senate seats is what the fuss is about!! They found out that even Republicans are not happy about the amount of those checks and the package. They blame the republicans.

Trump wants to screw Mitch, Deliver for his Moron Base! And claim he alone gave the Senate to the GOP. Remain relevant before he leaves etc.

And, he also will try and "block" Nancy from having it her way too. Remember, he doesn't want her to win either if he can help it.

He's gotta screw everyone up if he can... IF he can't then he has to leave the country starving, with out a deal, then blame it on everyone else !! On BIDEN, NANCY, MITCH, AND ANYONE ELSE.

"We are dealing with a person who is looking for a way to descend to a new level of Madness !!"

But, what's funny is that, "If this is money$ for corporations, and billionaires WE HAVE PLENTY of MONEY THEN $

PS. Notice the timing of this, When is the GA Senate vote ? Um, 5 Jan ?
