    I’d be less skeptic if there were exact numbers.
    I thought it said around $900k, so not exactly a small number. But I don't know Perdue's overall wealth. Maybe he had $100M and used the airline stock as a red herring loss while dumping $50M elsewhere.

    • So on one side you have healthy people laid off with no prospect for jobs and on the other hand you have old people with complications dying.


      I would have to side with healthy people working and not falling into poverty

            Or it won't. What the fuck do I know? Finishes at 19,170.

            Noticeable dip after the press conference. He'd do better to just shut the fuck up.

                I don't think so. Corona just exposed a weakness in the economy that was already there. There are still mass layoffs that will feed on themselves for a while. The fundamentals of the economy were shit and even if the virus were gone tomorrow that wouldn't change.

                  The economy is fine. It's fucking the stock traders behaving like cornered animals.

                  If the NYSE trading floor was run by AI bots, they would analyse that in a lick down environment, tech is strong, manufacturing is strong, construction is strong, online sales is strong.the only sectors that need help is tourism, dining, and entertainment

                  • This coffee shop is a block from me. Venmo’s from random people is how they are paying their barristas right now. This is what the American social safety net is. Pathetic.

                      GOP policies are wonderful while the economy is doing well. We don't realize how hollow it is until we hit a recession and find out we're all fucked.

                        If Trump had any brains he would roll out medicare for all and steal the dems thunder because currently the repubs have gone full tilt socialists and they wont question any thing trump does. Trump just forgave student loan debt payments - in normal times Moscow Mitch would kill that democratic bill while it was still in the womb

                          They didn’t forgive student debt. They delayed two payments without paying any interest.

                            Oh right - I read it as not making payments completely for 60 days......as in if you had 10 payments - you only make 8. my bad bro

                              It’s still a good thing, and a good idea but an extremely small good thing.
