Good day to you all, hope you all have had a good day. Yesterday we had a very warm day for us this time of year. We hit a high of 64F (17 C) but then last night we had a windstorm come through with winds about 40mph with it gusting up to 65-70mph. The winds I guess brought us the cold weather back the high today is only 37F (2C) oh and it is still quite windy. Not nearly as bad as last night though. I read today about another round of relief checks that I guess Biden is pushing for. From what I am reading it is going to be another $1400 or more if you have dependents but they are talking about it getting to us possibly by the end of this month. I use to joke that if someone wants to give me money I would gladly take it. Now I look at it like this, there is nothing free in life and we are going to end up paying this back somehow someway. If you’re not sure how that is just take a look at the inflation that is happening well there is one way we are paying for it. They are not saying how much this round will cost us but if we look at the last two rounds, I’m guessing it will be in that same area. The first-round cost us $270 Billion and the second one cost us $142 billion. That puts us $412 billion in the hole. Taking an average of that, $206 billion for this one will bring us to $618 billion in the hole, give or take a few billion. Do we really need to be that far in the hole? Where is this money coming from? Just seems like a bad idea to me.

I can only guess it is, or to keep them dependent on the government. All I know is if you keep printing money with nothing backing it all you are doing is destroying the value of the dollar and increasing inflation.
