Aw.
You beat me to it.


I was going to kick him while he's deserving, by insulting his Stone Hands, though.

So you can get loans for dribble like this? Well hookersRus LLC is looking like a business.

Hmm, it appears his name is spelled incorrectly on that shirt though wulfy. It ends 'amy' but I'm pretty sure it should be 'end'.

Over 1m fraud, he’s going to do a couple years in the pen. What a gaping asshole, people need that money.

Not to dive too deeply into the political part of it, but I think fraud will end up being pretty pervasive with this program, and I doubt they'll prosecute the majority of it. The goal was a major cash infusion to float the economy and it largely worked as intended. But quick and large amounts of cash like that were going to be open to fraud.
