Re: Should Churches Be Eligible For SBA Bailouts?

why should a church not be able to secure a loan..? as long as its not "free money" then I don't see the issue :nod: 1). Many of these loans will turn into forgivable grants if certain criteria are met. 2). It’s called the S BUSINESS A . Churches don’t pay property taxes, sales tax, etc. they shoul...

Re: To Whom Would You Be Rude?

I'm nice to you until you give me a reason not to.

Lil CCU has a school friend whose father, I was told is a controlling and abusive husband. When I met him, I could see that he truly was. I was an asshole to him, pretty openly. I felt bad but then again, he's a wife abuser so fuck him.

Re: Coronavirus

Giving hope is one thing. Giving hope with an unproven drug that the experts say need more study is totally different. That's false hope. :twocents: frequently called misinformation and secondly, I'm still waiting for the proper procedure (from the procedures guy) on the dissemination of medical in...

Re: Positives from Covid-19

Your first sentence is confusing. Are you saying that if a candidate like I referred to had run in 2016, then you would NOT have voted for them? 2016 for me: -no way in hell I was voting for Hillary. -wouldn't vote for an open borders candidate (Johnson) So that left 1 voting option. Given that my ...

Sorry. Unproven. It's effect is unproven. Unproven to be effective and everything at this point is purely anecdotal.

Way to deflect, BDK. SOunds exactly like the guy you voted for in 2016 and will vote for in 2020. Voting for 1 POS over another POS is such a bullshit excuse. If your beliefs align far more with one POS and his party's platform, than another POS (who you view as a far worse POS) and her party's pla...

That Trump was invested in the drug manufacturer. :roll: :ohno: :ohno: 1. It was a mutual fund. 2. It's a generic drug. Anyone can make it.

Re: Coronavirus

What's so special about a "surgical" nurse when dealing with COVID patients? Ventilation? Intubation probably requires advanced nursing skills. That would be my guess. As I understand - nurses assist but don't actually perform incubation. That's the doctor. But they have to know how to do it, how t...
