We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Or a $50,000 check mailed to each American? That would have surely produced a short-term stimulus...altho I believe economic cycles heal themselves anyway, and best, without government intervention, just like everybody gets over the flu after a while except those who were already dying.
If the US Treasury had sent me a $50,000 check (shamelessly borrowed from my kids and future grandkids), I would have bought myself a used S&W .45 revolver for $700 to shoot beer cans off a big old log, and used the rest to pay off kids' college debts.
And around $1500 of it to bring our veterinary account up to date. Vets are paid better than Docs these days.
