Economic Impact Payments Tracker

quote [ The IRS is committed to helping you get your Economic Impact Payment as soon as possible. The payments, also referred to by some as stimulus payments, are automatic for most taxpayers. No further action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees. ]

For those eligible in the US, the tracker is now live. If you have filed for 2019 it will use that data, otherwise it will use your AGI from 2018.
If they do not already have your direct deposit payment info on file you need your AGI, and the dollar amount of any refund/owed amount, plus the expected address and banking info.

The three days you are least likely to get shot in the US

quote [ (Reuters Health) - Gunshot-related deaths and injuries temporarily show a dramatic decline when the National Rifle Association is holding its annual convention, according to a new analysis online February 28 in The New England Journal of Medicine. ]

From a 'not getting shot' perspective, the safest three days of the year are when the NRA holds their national convention. Also, interesting that there is no change in gun related crimes, further debunking the 'Good guy with a gun' nonsense.

Orignally I saw this as a Bloomberg article, but since they're not 'Real News' I tracked down the Reuters version instead.

The Damn Memo is Finally Here

quote [ The Trump administration, with the help of Republicans in Congress, have for weeks been hyping up an internal House memo as the new Pentagon Papers. That memo was finally made public on Friday ]

This has been described as a wet fart. Seems insulting to wet farts if you ask me.
Embedded copy of the memo in the linked article.

Is This Virginia Police Department Popping The Hoods On Cop Cars To Block Dashcams?

quote [ The Danville, Virginia Police Department is under a great deal of scrutiny after going viral for appearing to have popped the hoods of cop cars in order to block their dashcam views. Police officials have issued a denial, claiming that their cars merely got too hot and needed to cool off, but that explanation is also a perplexing one. ]

FFS, do better!

Judge Bans Atlanta Media From Publishing Story

quote [ The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter signed the order Friday that "restrained and enjoined" the media, particularly TV station Fox 5 Atlanta from airing "a certain news story." ]

When someone tells someone to shut up, it's not a violation of First Amendment rights, when an employer fires or suspends an employee for saying something detrimental to their company in public it's not a violation of First Amendment rights, *THIS* is a violation of First Amendment rights.

***EDIT*** being reported that the bar has now been lifted, but it never should be been enacted to begin with:
