    @Lois Winters

    Money is in Washington a commonly exploited thing. Like the Clinton Crime Bill, a ten-year fiasco with an up-front price tag of something like $36,000,000,000 the purpose of which was to curb illegal firearms use. It entailed banning importation of "assault-style" rifles, banned ammunition magazines of over 10 rounds capacity (but grandfathered unknown billions of them already privately owned, no penalty on them), carrying the provision that after the Bill expired, Congressional reviews would determine it's effectiveness and whether to renew it.

    Time for "review", Congress did NOTHING, President ignored it, and Bill died, at a cost, of course.

    For someone who professes to be content with how things are, Cody, you sure spend a lot of time 'splaining your stance. Usually when a person thinks he's doing the "right thing", he just does it and doesn't feel the need to constantly justify it.

    Yeah, of course you’re right but we do have this tendency to egg him on a bit don’t we?
    After all, this thing is on it’s 18th page with at least half of it from people like myself giving either suggestions or a critique which absolutely beg for a reply. :rolleyes::)

    And, Bobby, I'm compelled to reply, even though my wife doesn't want me to.

    Also, just because a person/person's, on a forum suggests something to the OP, shouldn't ever mean the OP has to take it. Seems like there are many that, when the suggestion isn't accepted or understood, the OP gets criticized for not.

    Perhaps either you take things too personally or may I suggest that you purposely (or not) open yourself up for controversy.

    Everyone on this forum has been criticized for something so if you somehow believe that you’re supposed to be immune from such things, it’s time to think things through a little better.
    @Mary Robi had a definite point because here you are, extending what was meant to be a very simple statement into a dog and pony show.
    When you have dug yourself into a hole.......quit digging.

    Ok, Bobby........you win again! Seriously, you're right. Hopefully, someday, I'll learn. LOL

    The $600 additional unemployment benefit was part of the first stimulus package and has been in effect since then for people who lost their job due to the pandemic. It expires on July 31.

    She has a phone interview next Wednesday, but the online requirements state "week workends and overtime", which she doesn't want either. I read online reviews of the company and the reviewers only give the company two stars out of five. IOW, definitely not a company I'd work for. But, will see what happens.
