    I think people on the left and the right want to avoid being targeted. Who could blame them?

    I'm seeing absolutely no yard signs for Biden. There are around 4 Trump signs in our neighborhood. I don't see many bumper stickers (not even a handful) for Trump. Absolutely none for Biden. Where I DO see Trump signs is out in the boondocks (Hill Country), but again, not many of those, either.

    I would not want a bumper sticker for either one on my car. It's not a fancy car, but I would not want it keyed. People seem to spend a lot of time these days trying to trigger each other, emotions are high. Besides that, I think it's a little dumb to put a bumper sticker on your car, it might cause people to assume a whole lot that they might not be assuming about if you just kept your bumpers clean.
    I agree that bumper stickers are stupid, I never ever put them on cars, but as long as I can remember, people have always bumper stickered up cars with potus candidates, but not this year. Its about the only refreshing thing, no bumper stickers!

    Something struck me while driving today. At least in Omaha, you're hard pressed to find a single Biden bumper sticker. I don't think I've seen any. You still see faded Obama stickers, and lots and lots of Bernie, but no Biden. No Biden yard signs, either. On the flip side, not a lot of Trump stickers out there, either. But some.

    As angry as our society is right now, maybe people are just passing on yard signs and bumper stickers, but I see lots of Senate and House signs and bumper stickers, from both parties, just nothing Biden and very little Trump.

    Not traveling, I don't know if this is isolated and the national parties aren't spending money on the election here, but I sort of think that while we are very divided, there isn't any excitement with either candidate. Nobody wants to defile their rides with these two choices.

    [QUOTE=Kung Wu;n1249938]

    I don't know where they are getting that PPP is a $3 trillion program. It is a $670 billion program that paid out to about 5 million organizations in record time.

    If it's true that they have only identified $62 million in fraud out of a $670 billion program with 5 million recipients at such a quick pace, that would be an outstanding success in terms of government assistance. I mean we're talking about 0.009% fraud here.

    Note: I am adamantly against government run healthcare.


    My unintentional inaccuracies may have run this serious question off of the rails before it even started. My intent wasn't to criticize the PPP, but to question the Democrat idea of a government run health care program. I remembered the first bill was a 3 Trillion dollar bill so "my bad".

    However, the serious question still exists whether it is a $670 billion program with 5 million recipients or not. If the Feds have trouble running the PPP how can they run government health care for 350 million people?. I hope people will not dodge the question but try to answer it.

    This is a serious question for Bobb, Revenge of Shaka Khan, Rocky Mountain Shock, Wuzee, or other self proclaimed moderate lefty's or lefty's (whoever claims this that I've missed).

    Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was a 3 Trillion dollar federal government program to help small businesses, and employees, during the pandemic because it wasn't their fault. It had the best of intentions when it began, but as with, seemingly, All Government Run programs, it went awry. The following article talked about the PPP and as it says, $62 MILLION is the Tip of the Iceberg.We can't seem to run any government program with effectiveness when it becomes a huge program without fraud coming into the equation.

    So, no trolling, here is the honest question. With 350 Million Americans, how can we possibly run a HUGE Health Care program that is going to be larger than the PPP without fraud creeping into the program?





    $62 million in alleged PPP fraud is ‘tip of the iceberg’
    BY STACY COWLEY
    NEW YORK TIMES
    The criminal complaints read like catalogs of luxury bling: a diamond-laden $52,000 Rolex, a gambling spree at the Bellagio, two Lamborghinis, a pair of Cadillac Escalades, a Rolls-Royce. All that and more, law enforcement officials said, was financed through schemes to defraud the federal government’s signature coronavirus relief program for small businesses.

    The Justice Department has made at least 41 criminal complaints in federal court against nearly 60 people, who collectively took $62 million from the Paycheck Protection Program by using what law enforcement officials said were forged documents, stolen identities and false certifications.

    They are just “the smallest, tiniest piece of the tip of the iceberg,” said Hannibal Ware, inspector general of the Small Business Administration, which led the program

    After 3 months of burning and looting and destruction, Creepy Joe Biden finally came out against it; not because he thinks it's wrong, but because the polls told him to. What a gutless weasel......
