“Urgent care centers are not testing patients for Coronavirus either because they dont have testing kits or don't want to shut down if a patient is positive, possibility that there are many people with virus walking around”
Was it a child? They are not allowing any children to test as they will always come out positive.

Yankel was speeding and passed a red light. A cop pulled him over and requested license/registration. Not being able to afford any points, Yankel quickly forces an ugly sneeze onto his license and hands it to the cop. The cop quickly tells Yankel to go just this once and drive safely

That's not what I said. Is there evidence that wearing a mask significantly protects the wearer?
Hard to touch your nose and mouth that way, so yes at least in that regard.

Tell them to watch the clip of Dr Shapiro on Corona

Did I say softened? I said attempts to soften. (and some softening must have occurred).

A 50bps rate cut (I saw somewhere that JPM expecting 100bps cut at the next meeting). Major enhancements to repo operations. Market circuit breakers. ECB LTRO (the realize that lowering rates will do nothing, and they seemingly have more tools available to them than the Fed does). Proposed tax relief. Proposed tax filing deadline extension.
It just doesn't really translate into a/t tangible for the average American. Rate cuts only helped the market tank further AND interest rates on mortgages/Helocs stayed the same or jumped, ECB LTRO- well, I'm not a European citizen. A tax relief prob would help my pocket a bit. I hear what you're saying, I'm just trying to figure out the practical benefit of it all.

What's all this toilet paper craze???
I think I get it. My Amazon order just arrived sans the toilet paper ???

I have stocked up on some basics but just had a good laugh with my family reminiscing about the last time we did this (and it was all for naught). That was Y2K. I think my grandmother still has cases of apple juice bottles filled with water in her basement. Here's to hoping we'll be able to look back and say s/t similar...

Then stop taking applications, don't rip people off.
I wish!! I'm in the process of getting a mortgage and this is hurting me. Apparently they don't care. I just didn't realize that banks have the power to decide how much above the prime rate they can charge. I thought it's a given

Why are they going up?
It's because banks are overwhelmed with refinance requests and are having a hard time keeping up with the demand.

I hear ya. Back when I bought the policy I should have 1mm+ in CV today. This was based on the current dividend table at the time. I am embarrassed to say what the actual CV is today.
Wow! I was told the same, fell for it and purchased. I just wonder if this is the game they're playing for decades. Also, I don't know why I'm constantly having people ask me the term vs whole life question, but I am wondering if term is the way to go. (My spouse and I have both)
