You leaving the country Space?

Nope. Just think it's good to always have a passport. I have one for work purposes, but my personal one is expired.

Been planning on a 2022 trip to Europe for years...hoping life will be normal by then.

People have "work" passports??
If you travel to countries that do not like each other, you often keep separate passports for that reason so they donít see the stamps. Like if you are going to Iran, you can be refused entry if your passport has an Israel stamp.

I have no idea why Space would need two unless he has some sort of diplomatic travel element to his work heís completely underplayed.

According to my archives, isn't space a bean counter for some gov agency? Doesn't seem to fit the bill of needing separate passports. Additionally, someone as thrifty as $pace should be happy that someone else paid for his passport.

I have presented papers at conferences outside the US. I was scheduled to present at an international conference back in April. I was told to use my government passport while on work travel and not to use it while on personal travel, hence the need for two. Yawn.

Weird to see the Squad and Trump agree

In case you wanted to read 6000 pages of this bill
https://beta.documentcloud.org/documents/20433222-bills-116hr133sa-rcp-116-68

So Trump has until the 28th to sign or Veto
Mitch already plans to have the Senator's back on the 29th

so they could do two things
Override the veto
change it to get the stimulus to $2k per person ...but what would that take, wouldn't it have to go to the House to write a new bill.  Might takes weeks/Months?

What if they override the veto and just send a one-page bill through both houses in a day that adds $1400 per person and that's it
Seems like the easy way to get it done quick


So in trump's long list of Pork in his crazy pants speech....few have even dissected it because it's not worth anyone's time
but those things he listed weren't a part of this bill but the bill to fund the gov't ...right or was that Phat in the Covid relief bill?

There's only one bill. It funds the govt and includes the stimulus money.


A modification would have to go to the house. Pelosi has signaled support, so that should go fast, other than the logistics of a vote.

Its an omnibus.
I mean I hear ya, but it just seemed like this should be a totally separate onetime bill
they had to know that the media/trump and others would cherry-pick the pork that has nothing to do with Covid Relief

but I don't know that much about the details on bills apparently I need to rewatch schoolhouse rock

Will Mitch be the Grinch who steals Christmas or will everyone get $2000?
