Im planning on buying a new gun with the stimulus money - I figured its what Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer would have wanted when they pushed for the payouts.

Thanks for the seed money for my new NY compliant AR-15!

Probably drinks for enjoyment rather than as a coping mechanism while we enjoy our free weekends ;)

Don't worry, Investment Bankers will hold down the world's economy for you while you're away.

I work for a boutique RX consulting firm and my comp is as follows: $200K base and 25-100% bonus. Does that mean I receive the stimulus? Do all you bankers think I'm a loser?? :( :(

Don't know of you'll get a check or mot but all bankers definitely think you're a loser.

boutique RX consulting basically means your clients are too poor to keep FTI or A&M on retainer. Have fun working for local laundromat chains.

edit: MS thrown for salt lmao
