Petition for $2000 monthly stimulus check nears 2.9 million signatures

| September 22, 2021

There is a petition on change.org demanding $2000 a month per adult, and $1000 per child, until the conclusion of the pandemic. This petition is nearing 2.9 million signatures. Stephanie Bonin, from Denver, initiated this petition last year. It continues to to gain additional signatures.

From Newsweek:

A petition for monthly stimulus checks of $2,000 has drawn nearly 2.9 million supporters, as the highly virulent Delta variant continues to drive up COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalizations across the U.S. But while online petitions for cash payments continue to gain traction, that support isn’t translating to pressure on members of Congress.

The Change.org petition, launched by Denver restaurant owner Stephanie Bonin last year, calls for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to deliver legislation that would provide a “$2,000 payment for adults and a $1,000 payment for kids immediately, and continuing regular checks for the duration of the crisis.”

The petition has gained more than 2,887,000 signatures as of Saturday, with about 100,000 new signatures in the past month. It will become one of Change.org’s most signed petitions if it reaches its goal of 3 million signatures.

Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, a Democrat, introduced legislation on July 30 that would establish a federal universal basic income system. Under the proposed five-year pilot program, U.S. adults earning under $75,000 would receive $1,200 per month and $600 for each dependent child.

But Omar’s guaranteed income bill only drew support from four legislators–Democratic Representatives Cori Bush of Missouri, Dwight Evans of Pennsylvania, Jamaal Bowman of New York and Pramila Jayapal of Washington.

Newsweek continues on to describe the Democrat effort to push for stimulus checks. You could read the story in this article.

    Democrats’ Free Sh*t delusions are having an effect…

      Hi, I’m President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, and I approve this message.

      It’s telling who supports this:

      Cori Bush- BLM Marxist, has her own Ben Jerry’s Ice Cream Flavor. Need I say more?

      Dwight Evans- Happily not the former Red Sox but instead a supporter of UBI since at least 2018.

      Jamaal Bowman- Only openly male member of the squad.

      Pramila Jayapal- Proud supporter of UBI for years.

      In the words of Rep. Paul Mitchell “We already have a universal basic income — it’s called work.” Anyone can’t find I job where they live I can’t point them in a dozen directions of labor shortages in this country.

    It might just work…if you fired every single state and fed gov employee that distributes “justice by robinhood’n”…. Might.

    If you believe that’d happen I have a bridge and some beachfront property to sell ya on the cheap.

    Any who, back here on planet reality: system broke, getting brokener. Get Au. Get Ag. Get Pb with Cu wrapper. Food. And a stack of wood.

    Hold on tight.

    So basically they are saying quit your job and stay pregnant.
    Or, lacking a vagina, quit your job and keep someone pregnant.
    Or, lacking a willing partner, quit your job and stay home.
    Or, lacking a home, quit your job and squat in someone elses.
    The possibilities are endless….

    “Vegetate and stay dependent” is obviously their motto.

    “….. until the conclusion of the pandemic…”
    Riiiiiight. With Fauxi and Xiden in charge, that could last forever.

    “….the highly virulent Delta variant …”
    Last I remember, virulent DOES NOT equal deadly. Oh, except to those with morbidities (overweight, diabetes, et al), and those that have been “Jabbed”. Which, if I’m reading right, those that have been Jabbed are the SOURCE of the Delta (et al) variants.

    I want to continue, but my language would be such as to get me either a stern warning, or banished, from TAH by Admin (of the few things I’m a’feered of, Ex tops the list. wanna stay on her good side)

    For those of you that missed it from yesterday, I’m reposting it because Ex-PH2 said I had an “attitude” (and KoB liked it too kinda) and well, maybe but I want to emphasize typing or screaming ” FREE SHIT!!!, FREE SHIT!!!, FREE SHIT!!!, FREE SHIT!!!”, is *not* the proper way to go about getting FREE SHIT!!!.

    Alright, that’s it, I’m going to enlist and or conscript, voluntarily, myself, starting, into the TAH/VG FREE SHIT Army (again, or just spit-balling here, in a general sense maybe “Militia”, and before you even get started FUCK YOU BOOK OF FAKE, FBI, NSA, CIA, BFD, NRO, DHS, DIA, IRS, NFW, YOURMOM, CID (not the DOD one), KGB (for LARS), CDC, NIH, EPA, GAO, FED, FDA, HHS, HUD, NEA, OMB, ICE, WHO, UN’MFers, MI 5&6 (over the pond), FEMA, BATF, EIEIO, ETC.) meaning we’ll (I’ll) fight for FREE SHIT, FREEdom, FREEdom from oppression, FREEdom to make our own, generally, good and fair decisions, FREEdom to live and breathe and work and thrive and survive, one our OWN, FREE from interference and unnecessary, overtaxing and overbearing governance, FREE from individuals who *should* be representative of the collective good and for what and which we all strive for, NOT their own self interests, and the FREEdom to exclude and/or remove and replace, without interference, those that do not hold these ideals, principles, morals, standards and ethics.
    So Help Me God.
    I Do.
    Or something like that.

    Oh and we don’t have to do PT. (YEAH!!!, fuck you BMI!!!)
    SO, we’ve got THAT going for us, which is nice.
    Feel free to join in like the The As(s)teroid of Insults®™
    It’s its own entity while consisting of what all of us have collectively put together. You know an autonomous collective. ” You’re fooling yourself! We’re living in a dictatorship! A
    self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes–“….
    There you go, bringing class into it again…

    Here’s a serious way to (sometimes) get free shit…

    • KoB says:

      Again…What Chip said. I will stand shoulder to shoulder with my former Aerial Artillery Platform Operating Brother or be his ammo bitch at the Door Gunners Position of the Hubble Space Station. Shoulder to shoulder until the race is on to hug OAM. All bet’s off then, every dog for himself.

      They want some free sh^t to support their sorry, lazy, good for nothing, parasitic azzes? I gots plenty of hemp rope designed to support the neck of any body.

    If I need free shit all I have to do is take a container to our local sewage treatment plant and load it up with their free biosolids to mix with my potting soil.

    Yup! You feed the fucking seagulls ONE TIME, and you can NEVER get rid of them!

      #STOP_Elder_Abuse

      The way he points to that obvious sticker and says, “Build back better” like he’s looking for a piece of candy for saying something right for once is more than a little disconcerting.

      Frail old fella almost gets knocked down too.

    2.9 million on-line signatures matters, cuz we know that everyone on line is a serious, studious, truthful intellectual.
