$600?!?

$600? Is this supposed to be a fucking joke? Our government refuses to send financial help for months, and then when they do, they only give us $600? The average person who was protected from getting evicted is in debt by $5,000 and is about to lose their protection, and the government is going to give them $600.? There are people lining up at 4 am and standing in the freezing cold for almost 12 hours 3-4 times a week to get BASIC NECESSITIES from food pantries so they can feed their children, and they get $600? There are people who used to have good paying jobs who are living on the streets right now. There are single mothers starving themselves just to give their kids something to eat. There are people who’ve lost their primary bread winner because of COVID, and they’re all getting $600??

Christ, what the hell has our country come to? The government can invest billions into weaponizing space but can only give us all $600 to survive a global pandemic that’s caused record job loss.

TIFU by drinking $600 worth of booze.

I lost my Uncle this past fall. He was the odd duck of the family and I loved him very much, we had lots in common. He introduced me to many of the things I love to do.

He was a high paid Lawyer and was terrible with money. The rest of my family is poor, so I grew up hearing tales of his monetary misdeeds. For example, he used his bonus one year to buy a condo in Key West only to lose it because he didn't pay his taxes. He was so bad at adulting he never had a phone line for long because he'd forget to pay the bill, so his company gave him a cell phone that they paid for (unheard of at that time) The company he worked for loved him for his work. There are many other stories, but on to the TIFU.

I asked by my Mother if I wanted any of his books from his summer bungalow (not as grand as it sounds, more of a higher-end trailer park. you own the house, but pay a lot fee and get to have a beach house with on Long Island but not pay 1m plus for it) I could not let books go to the dumps so I went with her with a ton of bags and filled my truck. She told me to take anything I wanted or else it will go in the dumpster so the place can be empty when they sell it. Most of the non-book related stuff was junk. I found some great pictures that I kept and a few other odds and ends.

One of those odds and ends is the heart of the TIFU. It was a smallish red box with a brass plaque. It has a small bottle of booze inside. I should have known it was not a normal bottle of booze because it was in a glass case with some other beach themed bricka brack. So fast forward last night, I pull out the box and after a hard day, I think I'd give it a try. I'm not much of a drinker, I'll have a glass of scotch every few months but that is about it. No beer or wine unless I use it for cooking. My lack of experience with alcohol comes in to play here.

I sit down get out two glasses (one for the wife, it's good to share) crack open the case, and pour us each a little taste. That first sip was when I knew I had fucked up. It was way too smooth, like zero burn at all. I finished my glass and but the supplies glass (spoiler, it's not glass) stopper in the top to save the rest for later.

As I'm sitting there letting the warmth radiate out from my belly, I grab my phone to see if I can find more of this excellent booze. I think I've just added one more thing that I can accredit my Uncle for turning me onto. I just drank a $600 dollar Louis XIII Cognac. I start freaking out. I frantically se

What is up with Donald Trump saying he would veto the latest stimulus bill unless payments were increased from $600 per person to $2000?

So dems and the gop agreed on a relief bill with $600 stimulus checks.

Trump said he would veto unless it's increased to $2000 https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1341537886315950080?s=20

Now dems say they want $2000 and the gop are blocking it. https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/stimulus-check-2000-dollar-direct-payments-democrats/

It seems very disingenuous to agree to one thing and then when Trump out lefts them to say no we always wanted the more popular position.

I've no doubt the gop are holding it up now, but can someone explain why the dems would agree in the first place?

AITA For spending 600$ weekly on my son and not his brothers?

I'm a single dad with 3 sons. In order: Jack 23/Austin/19/Kevin16.

Kevin has a severe learning disability, low-functioning autism. I look after him at home, after he was failed by 3 care homes. Because there was neglect.

The the last care home hadn’t managed to wash his hair in four weeks or give him a shower in three weeks And other problems that were never addressed, and a complicated argument with SC who were awful and nasty. I couldn't let him live like that. Jack and Austin both live at home. They didn't want him to return home. And were being negative towards him. They said since he's back home they won't be involved in his care. I'm not sure why they want this for their brother to be treated as less just because of his special needs. I know it's not easy. For them. Kevin and me but he's their brother.

I started looking after him myself. Routine has changed but I managed at first. I started working from home so I could spend more time with him. But it didn't work also because I'm solely taking care of him and everyone else in the house doesn't help with simple tasks. It's just exhausting to be doing everything alone.

I decided to hire a paid carer that takes about 600 Weekly. Austin and Jack knew about it and they were upset with me. Asking me why I was spending that much money on Kevin alone and demanded equality and be given the same amount of money weekly too. I was stunned when they both lashed out at me for playing favorites and treating Kevin differently. Saying he was my spoiled favorite. They started complaining about needing money to fix their phones/new tv/a new dishwasher etc.

I told them that I had no choice since no one wanted to participate in his care. And that they're capable adults who can start earning their own money if they wanted. They said they weren't obligated to take part in his care. So I should stop holding that over their heads. And demanded that I give them the same amount of money weekly. We argued back and forth. And they both took turns to try to guilt me for what I did.

They refused to drop it and other family members got involved. My sister berated me saying I was being unfair and that their reaction is understandable. They're both 23-19 they can move out if they want. At least they don't pay rent nor groceries. The argument seemed to be going nowhere. They've been giving me the silent treatment since then and say that I'm playing favorites.

I need to mention that I in no way asked or expected Jack and Austin

When a body is found 600 miles away... Extensive two part write up on the bizarre case of Judy Smith (1997). Part 1 of 2.

Hello everyone, for the last few months I have been creating long form write-ups on a variety of unsolved cases. If you are interested in other lengthy write ups you can find them on my profile- https://www.reddit.com/user/Quirky-Motor/.

Months ago, I was asked to cover the inexplicable case of Judy Smith, a woman who went missing from Philadelphia or perhaps Massachusetts, only for her body to be found in North Carolina months later. The case was famously covered on the show Unsolved Mysteries, and it is strange enough to warrant a long, hard look at the case and a comprehensive timeline. I hope you are able to learn something new about this semi well-known case.

Background

Judy Smith was born Judith Eldridge in Massachusetts in 1946. Right out of high school Judy married for the first time. Her husband and she had been married very shortly when in an attemot to avoid the draft, he fled to Sweden. Judy went in search of her young husband but soon returned to the states empty handed and filed for divorce. Years later, Judy married Charles Bradford a man who worked in the racehorse industry. They had two children together, Craig and Amy, but unfortunately the marriage did not last and soon Judy found herself jobless and raising two children by herself. Rather than fret, Judy got a job and enrolled in nursing school. Judy was known to study in all of her free time and soon became a successful home health care nurse. In 1986 at age 40, Judy was caring for a man who was recovering from throat surgery when she met her patient’s son, a well to do lawyer named Jeffrey Smith. Jeffrey said he was impressed by how Judy cared for his father and asked her on a date. Judy and Jeff had several things in common, both had been divorced single parents who raised children alone, and Jeffrey worked in healthcare as well, except he was a lawyer. The couple both enjoyed going to plays and Celtics basketball games. After seven years together, Jeff and Judy moved in together and three years later the couple married in Nov., 1996.

According to friends and family, Judy was a rather assertive and independent person. She was no stranger to travelling alone. Judy had been to Europe on her own a few times, and when her children were pre-teens, she took them to Europe for a backpacking adventure. Judy also independently traveled to Thailand where she went hiking and visited friends. While Judy wasn’t the epitome of fitness, she was a
