This sounds like the opening to a joke.... but ain't no one laughing (and one of them barely breathing)

A Jewish Doctor, Black Nurse and Asian American Respiratory Therapist Treat COVID-19 Nazi Patient....

https://www.sfchronicle.com/local-politics/article/A-moment-of-doubt-Pandemic-patient-with-swastika-15764534.php

Quote
A Jewish doctor, a Black nurse and an Asian American respiratory therapist stood over the patient on the gurney in the emergency room.

“Don’t let me die, doc,” the man begged.

As the man struggled to breathe, the swastika tattooed on his chest rose and fell with each gasp.

Dr. Taylor Nichols promised the man he’d do his best.
[...]
But standing in full protective gear, readying for a pandemic procedure that could expose his team to the coronavirus, Nichols, for the first time in his career, questioned whether he wanted to keep that promise.

“I don’t know if I care,” he remembers thinking. “I didn’t feel compassion for him in that moment.”

I promise you, there is no punchline

Our household got hit with COVID last month. All of us had a bad cough, runny nose, chills, headache, all that bad stuff. My mom and brother both needed an inhaler to help them breathe better. Fortunately, we're all better now, but I'm still a bit irritated that my mom's boss gave it to us in the first place due to ineptness on his part because it could have turned out real bad for my mom especially with her health issues and age.

Glad you and your family were able to recover, Phil. Sorry you had to go through that because of someone else's negligence.

We had a scare last week. Sister-in-law came over to drop something off and like an idiot we let her in without a mask. And her side of the family all gathered together brazenly because they seemed to think they were immune and one of them got it and spread it to most of the others. Half the family refuses to test but sis did and she was positive two days after stopping by to drop something off. Our tests came back negative so that is a big relief for us. We took that near miss as a lesson and have tightened our protections even more.

Hoping you and your family recover quickly Phil. It sucks when you are doing things as right as you can and someone else goes and wrecks everything.

AOC just announced that Americans that have had family members die from COVID can get a Federal Reimbursement of upto $7k for storage and funeral proceedings through FEMA.

https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1358819976388485122?s=20

It's good to see those that want to do good being uncuffed and actually being able to act in the better interest of the people that they represent (including the undocumented). And this is retroactive through Jan 2020.

p.s. the COVID Stimulus Relief bill was also passed.
I didn't get the first 2, and I'm not holding my breath for the 3rd, but I read somewhere that those that never received their prior benefits should still be eligible to receive them.

I don't know the circumstances from the second stimulus, but the first one was a tax credit.  So, you should be able to get it when filing your 2020 tax returns.

My parents and my brother have all gotten their first round of the vaccine because the site had extras and they just showed up for them.  While, I'm happy for my family, I'm also extremely jealous and a tad upset that my university has left us completely in the dark.

edit: I should add: "barring any phaseouts or other exclusions".  I remember when the first one hit, I knew I wouldn't get it because I hadn't filed my 2019 return thanks to the extension, but I could get it later because my income went down after going back to school midyear.

Were you supposed to qualify for them? You can follow up with the treasury if you didn't get them and both can be applied as tax credits if you didn't receive them yet (this is according to TurboTax when I started plugging my numbers as I understood it).

My sister filed her taxes later in the year due to extensions and got the first one mailed to her after filing since it was her first year filing taxes, so that could also still happen to folks as well.

Honestly, I had an issue with Turbotax regarding my 2019 filing that I'm clearing up now.
If I qualified, hopefully I'll see it taken off my 2020's.

Turbo Tax 2020 has a specific section for Covid relief and should ask you what you received for each round of stimulus. I messed it up because I miss-remembered how much I got when initially plugging in numbers and when I corrected it I watched my taxes due go up so it does have a direct impact.

For context, I received the full amount each round but put less for the second one, so it gave me a tax break for the 'missing amount'. When I added it back in the number changed to remove the benefit. Taxes are so depressing for me and wife as we always tend to owe no matter what we do (and we get advice to assist us each year to make sure we are maximizing things).

As our original tax advisor stated: "Welcome to the middle class! You are too rich to benefit from what you used to benefit from, but too poor to afford living without those benefits". Our two rounds of stimulus are basically going to cover our 2020 tax bill. On one had we have been blessed, but on the other the system sure makes it a pair in some ways.

LOL Texas. As if February wasn’t enough of a flustercuck for y’all...

Governor Greg Abbott:


Office of the Texas Governor’s website:

Guided tours of the Governor’s Mansion have been temporarily suspended. In addition to being a historical site, the Governor’s Mansion is also the residence of the First Family of Texas and it is not possible to safely provide tours while also adhering the CDC’s health standards.
It’s real. Source: https://gov.texas.gov/first-lady/tours

Here’s a screenshot just in case they try to walk it back:


Good luck, Texans-who-are-actually-trying-not-to-die. As for the rest of you...
