A welder from an auto plant said that his unemployment has not come back. He has been out of work for a month. I wonder if many are not getting unemployment because of too many applicants

It's crazy in states like NY where a phone interview is required as a part of the process. Ssn ends in 9? Apply Wednesday. Can't get through Wednesday? Oh well, try next week.

I got an email from Atlantis Casino in Reno yesterday saying they're accepting reservations for arrival starting May 1. I think that's extremely optimistic, but hey, I'm no pandemic expert.

They say "Rest assured that we have not laid off any of our Team Members and look forward to welcoming our Guests and Team Members alike, as soon as we are allowed to do so."

most wont be worried about the vaccine. nothing bad about a vaccine. its Bill Gates's plan to include a microchip under the skin and an ID along with the vaccine thats intrinsically evil. this is the mark of the beast talked about for the last 2000 years that permanently seperates man forever from God and seals his damnation.

without this included alongside the vaccine. id get the vaccine, but with it included no way in hell. Bill Gates is as evil or more so, than Soros.

Wow. A man that gives away billions of dollars for good causes is worse than Soros. Lol


Before all this... my hospital required a flu vaccine for all workers in clinical areas. You needed documentation, which you would provide to HR. HR would give you a sticker to display on your ID badge. If you chose NOT to get the vaccine you had to wear a mask your entire shift. You'd see around a dozen workers throughout the hospital in masks.

Yeah, my gf's old hospital might have done similar. Her current hospital said, "You don't get it, you're fired."

Just got off the phone with Aria reservations. They are booking reservations now for rooms available starting May 1st. Casino will also be open. Buffet and shows will be closed til June 1st. I'm from upstate NY (300 miles from NYC) and would like to celebrate my birthday there mid May. Let me know if that changes!! Thank you.

I would bet the governor will change the dates. Mid May is doubtful, imo.

Walmart first to be hit with Coronavirus wrongful death lawsuit

I don't see how this progresses.

Firstly, just working at Walmart doesn't mean it was contracted there. That will have to be proven and I don't see how. He could have caught it on the bus to work or the gas station filling up his tank. Anywhere he had contact with humans

Secondly, if this is allowed to move forward it opens business across the nation to hundreds of thousands if not millions of lawsuit's.

Finally, Walmart remains open as an essential business by the state so they probably have that to fall back on

As for casinos, this is another reason they can't open Willy nilly. They need to be certain no one is going to lib suits against them

I'm 5.4 miles from that Walmart. Never visited it.

So, we wait to hear the starting gun for renewing America's economy. Seniors are directed to shelter in place, while everyone else fights the fight. Here's one person's take on everything (including a Vegas reference!)

Itís 18th day of self-isolation and itís like Vegas in my house. Iím losing money by the minute, cocktails are acceptable at any hour and I have no idea what time it is. Iíve spent two weeks with myself and Iím so sorry to every person I have ever spent time with.Turns out my top three hobbies are: 1) eating at restaurants, 2) going to nonessential businesses and 3) touching my face.Mom always told me Iíd never amount to anything lying on the sofa. Yet here I am, saving the world.I feel like Iím 16 again. Gas is cheap and Iím grounded.

I would love a source for this. Apologies to anyone if it is from your pen. Passed to me without attribution.

Seems to be an image problem here. Maybe he should try giving shiny new dimes to children.

Again, using a chip is not the right response. You could give an ID card instead. Or a million other things.


For a document, you could use a special edition dollar bill. No document will have a better anti-counterfeiting option. Print "Not for legal tender" on both sides in big letters. If you get one you have proof of vaccination.

We do special edition coins, so I see no reason for bills being excluded.

You don't even need to make a database once you have these. You might need to print a few more unusual things on them making them unique, like unique serial number, image.

If it gets stolen, you'll just have to go get vaccinated again and then be more careful.

If a business opens prematurely and it ends up his employees get sick, they deserve to get sued.


Keep everything closed indefinitely. Better safe than to be sued. Don't worry about the fact that people need to work to pay for rent, food, etc....

Like I said, lawyers are busy trying to figure who they will need to sue to get $$$$$.

Waiting? It has already started. Inner city Dollar General worker.... "I was forced to work in unsafe conditions and got COVID. Passed it to my mother who died. Suing for $100,000,000." Predicted by my wife before it happened.....

Never let a great crisis go to waste.

People are 3 things.

1. Stupid
2. Greedy
3. Lazy

Anything made to cater to any of these things will make money. Example, lazy so we have remote control. Lazy so Blockbuster is bankrupt but Netflix thrives.

Greedy, that is why there are way too much frivolos lawsuits.

Stupid, that is why we are killing our economy and running around like a chicken with out heads cut off asking the government for a bailout.
