I'm going to Senior Shopping hours tomorrow and I want to get disinfectants.

Gonna sit outside in the sun and bake myself after injecting a cocktail of those disinfectants.

Question: Should I or should I not use Sun Screen?

Sean Hannity Has Full-On Meltdown Over Criticism Of Fox News Coronavirus Coverage

The “Hannity” host, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, said in a lengthy rant that he was thinking of suing “the media mob” and again accused journalists of “playing politics” and of using the public health crisis “to bludgeon” the president politically.

Hannity, who downplayed the threat of the virus for weeks, reserved particular scorn for New York Times opinion writer Kara Swisher, describing her as a “far-left media mob maniac” after she blamed the network’s reporting for her elderly mother’s apparent lack of concern about the outbreak.

“Well, it sometimes feels like Fox News is eating my mother’s brain,” Swisher wrote this week in a searing column she directed at Hannity.

Hannity continued his meltdown by attacking The Washington Post’s media critic Erik Wemple, calling him “Eric Pimple” over a column calling for Hannity to be fired.


What a clueless asshole. He freaking ADMITS that the called the Coronavirus a "hoax" and NOW he says that the criticisms against Faux Snooze are not warranted. I guess logic is clearly not a strong suite with this one!!!

Treasury backs off requirement that Social Security recipients, others take extra step to get $1,200

WASHINGTON – Facing stiff criticism, the Treasury Department abruptly changed course late Wednesday and announced that Social Security beneficiaries and other Americans who haven’t filed income taxes for the past two years won’t have to take any extra steps to receive one-time checks of up to $1,200 under a new economic recovery program.

“Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return need to take no action and will receive their payment directly to their bank account,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

Most Americans won’t have to do anything to receive a payment under the $2.2 trillion program designed to help the economy recover from the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. The checks will be sent automatically within the next three weeks to eligible Americans who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019.

But the Internal Revenue Service posted a notice on its website earlier this week saying people who typically don’t file taxes would need to file a simple tax return to receive one of the payments. That would have included low-income taxpayers, senior citizens, Social Security recipients, some veterans and individuals with disabilities who are otherwise not required to file a tax return.


This Treasury Dept announcement supposedly reversed the IRS decision to required returns from those who have not been required to file in the last past two years. Frankly, having dealt with those POS at the IRS, it's my belief that they are looking for people to collect from and thereby keep the checks for themselves with the IRS decision about the need to file to get that $1,200 check.

Gov. Cuomo brings back FDR's Fireside Chats

I am so thankful for his briefings. I now realize what my grandparents and my parents as children felt when Franklin Roosevelt came on the air and spoke TO them and not AT them. Not self-serving nor simplistic. Factual and considered. Consoling, supportive, empathetic and kind.

Thank you so much, Gov. Cuomo!
