The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Without trying to write a law review article, I believe that the Court majority, under your leadership, has become little more than a result-oriented extension of the right wing of the Republican Party, as vetted by the Federalist Society. James Dannenberg. He’s a retired Hawaii judge

No shit?


Quote II

The great secret of power is never to will to do more than you can accomplish. Henrik Ibsen


Quote III

“Yes, I’m nervous about getting the virus, and I don’t want to give it to other people,” “But it can’t stop us from going out and drinking and having a good time.”Nicole Zanetti

Not sure who is hardest hit, bluebell or Jameis Winston. Tom Brady leaving New England Patriots for Tampa Bay Buccaneers?

Most shocking sports story of our lives?

The future of the most famous free agent in NFL history appears to be nearing its climax as six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady officially told the New England Patriots on Tuesday morning that he will not be returning for his 21st season in Foxboro.

Colin Cowherd says he has a source close with Brady who told Colin that Brady has made a decision and will be signing with the Tampa Bay Bucs tomorrow (Wednesday, March 18th) when free agency officially begins at 4pm ET.

Although Tampa Bay has one of the better rosters in the league on paper when you consider their elite wide receiving corps, coupled with a budding front-seven that could be one of the best in football, their secondary has been absolute mess the past few seasons, and their offensive line yielded the most sacks in the league last year.


Where are your Buccaneers? Under my bucking hat.

An Illinois news station accidentally aired election day results on Monday showing former Vice President Joe Biden winning Tuesday's primary election.

Station WCIA aired the results during a Monday showing of The Price Is Right, indicating Biden defeating Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by over 93,000 votes

COVID-19, It doesn't defeat everyone.

To an unfamiliar eye, the average a show from Pittsburgh-based metal outfit, Code Orange, looks like large-scale melee. As the band literally screams through their set, the audience yells, whips their hair, and climbs all over each other. The crowd is a fundamental part of any metal or hardcore band’s performance. Right now, however, social distancing stands in its way thanks to Coronavirus. Venues have limited capacities or have canceled shows completely, which has left touring musicians with lost ticket sales and bins full of T-shirts and other merch they hoped to sell on the road.

The band found themselves in a particularly tough spot. Their new album Underneath debuted on March 13th and its record release show was set for Saturday night in Pittsburgh, PA. The show’s fate was uncertain until roughly two days before it happened. It was obvious that fans couldn’t responsibly pack the sold-out venue. The band would still play, but the audience would watch via livestream on Amazon’s video game-centric platform, Twitch. Meanwhile, the massive theater was basically empty.

As Ron White says, You can't fix stupid. I would have inserted an adjective in front of stupid. But, that's me.

Yes, not having toilet paper when you really need it may seem like a real emergency, however, busy police departments would appreciate it if you can refrain from dialing 911 and asking for help.

The Newport Police Department, located in Oregon, took to social media to plead with residents to stop calling 911 when they run out of toilet paper.

With the Americans sufficiently whipped into a state of near-panic by the media over-hyping the coronavirus outbreak, toilet paper and hand soap were the very first commodities to go, as panic buying began to empty grocery shelves.

I wish the SCOTUS would address this type of nibbling at the 2nd Amendment. The State of Pennsylvania is attempting to make ammunition purchases down right difficult.

New legislation introduced this month in the Pennsylvania House aims to add fees and limits to how Keystone Staters buy their ammunition.

Pennsylvania House Bill 2344 was referred to the chamber’s Judiciary Committee last week with a dozen sponsors. Filed by state Rep. Tom Murt, R-Montgomery, it would wrap the ammo buying process in layers of Harrisburg red tape.

In its current format, the 25-page bill would mandate those who want to pick up some bullets first obtain a proposed Ammunition Purchase Authorization Permit, a four-year $50 ammo permission slip controlled by state police. Permits, which could take 30 days to process, would be tracked, their information retained in a central database, and subject to revocation.

When it comes to the act of buying ammunition, with a $3 surcharge payable to the state, ammo could only be purchased online if it is delivered to a licensed importer, manufacturer or dealer to process a subsequent face-to-face transfer. This would end the common practice among Pennsylvanians of ordering from e-commerce ammo retailers such as Guns.com and having it conveniently delivered to their home.

Further, Commonwealth residents under the proposal would be barred from legally transporting ammunition into the state that was acquired outside of its borders unless they have a licensed dealer coordinate the transfer.

I still think it's Bull Shit. Why the government can close anything it fricking wants to.

I regret to inform you that we have always lived in a country in which political officials can order private businesses closed.

A key constitutional foundation of the American system of federal powers is that the national government is one of enumerated powers specified in the text of the written Constitution but that state governments are ones of general jurisdiction who hold the residual of public power, lacking only the exceptions that have been specifically carved out by written constitutions. Traditionally, this doctrine was known as the "police powers," which was conventionally understood to include the power of the state to make all necessary laws to protect the welfare, safety, morals and health of the community.

This general background of police powers underwrites myriad routine restrictions that state and local governments put on social life. It is what allows local governments to authorize health inspectors to examine the kitchens of restaurants and order them to close if they discover problems. It is what allows fire marshals to limit the number of people who can occupy a public venue. It is what allows police officers to arrest people for urinating in the street. It is what allows government officials to prevent you from just accumulating mounds of garbage in the backyard of your suburban home. It is what allows government officials to tell you that you cannot keep a Bengal tiger as a pet in your house. It is what allowed states to ban free-standing billiard halls or bowling alleys as contributing to public disorder.


The walking Douche Bag of WI, (I mean Gov. Tony Evers and yes I did write that outloud) closed all places of public gathering with 10 or more people. Let's close down all the bars and restaurants while we are at it too. Unless they offer take out.

How many people do we have to ruin financially to save people from death?

No. Hell No! Election by mail, I don't think so.

With the general election more than seven months away, the potential impact of covid-19 on voter turnout remains largely hypothetical. But in what could prove a parallel to the prescient (and mostly unheeded) warnings by top medical officials about U.S. unpreparedness last month, a wave of influential voices are now pressing for immediate action to curb the virus’s influence this November.

In an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times on Monday, the president and vice president of the Brennan Center for Justice, NYU’s progressive policy institute—Michael Waldman and Wendy Weiser, respectively—put forth several suggestions for securing the vote; among them, a universal option of voting by mail.

Well! That didn't work out too good. Genius Award Winners.

Two Hudson County Men Charged with Using Drones to Smuggle Contraband into Fort Dix Federal Prison
TRENTON, N.J. – Two Hudson County, New Jersey, men were charged today with conspiring to use drones to smuggle contraband, including marijuana, steroids, syringes, cell phones and cell phone equipment, into the federal correctional facility at Fort Dix, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Nicolo Denichilo, 38, of Jersey City, New Jersey, and Adrian Goolcharran, a/k/a “Adrian Ajoda,” a/k/a “Adrian Ahoda,” 35, of Union City, New Jersey, were each charged by complaint with one count of conspiring to smuggle contraband and to defraud the United States and one count of smuggling contraband into the federal prison at Fort Dix. Denichilo was arrested March 12, 2020, after federal law enforcement agents learned of a scheduled drone drop at Fort Dix. He had his initial appearance this afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Tonianne Bongiovanni in Trenton federal court and was released on $100,000 unsecured bond. Goolcharran remains at large.

According to the documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Helping those who are less fortunate. NBA star Kevin Love is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

On Thursday, the Cavaliers star, 31, revealed he is donating $100,000 through his foundation to support the staff at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, the Cleveland, Ohio arena where his team plays.

"Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. And the fear and anxiety resulting from the recent outbreak of COVID-19 can be extremely overwhelming," Love captioned a photo of himself with the arena workers.

But I put all my shopping into quarantine. I am not sure how long though. I read a paper that says the half life on plastic is something like 3 days, but I think the paper is flawed - is half life even a proper metric? you would expect it to be highly non-linear.

34 So the lawless authoritarian freaks of the legal cult are just as delusional and immersed in a make-believe reverse-reality universe as so many pundits and Dem public figures.

Only results-driven major decisions in Roberts' time I can recall were the O-care and marriage redefinition debacles. Maybe Hamdan v. Bush (Kennedy usurping the treaty power and rewriting diplomatic history on Geneva), which featured a literal "the words mean the opposite of what they mean" flourish.

I have considered this, and I think it is unlikely. Your eyes are passive but your lungs suck shit in. So first order should be a good mask. I think eyes probably are only a risk for people who are in close contact to coughers - like health care workers - but being on the street it is not an issue.

96 That Ibsen quote is quite timely and relevant.

Trump has historically won nearly every contest, both social and business, he has entered. He instinctively does exactly this. He built billions of dollars of buildings this way. He became an international TV personality, and greatly benefited from it. And he has not problem crediting others that help him reach his goals.

He wasn't over his head with unions, with financiers, with suppliers. He plans and knows what is going to happen. His adjustments are minor because of his planning and management.


And then the Beervirus hits the world, and control goes out the window. What does Trump do?

He uses his 50 years of successful managerial experience to gather the best experts, sets the correct goals, defines the most prudent actions, and then with his new plan, goes in front of the cameras and manages it.

Like a Boss.

I agree with the idea that government can shut down shit if for no other reason than public health. It's actually a government function like mail or securing the border. The problem is when you've got a bunch of panicky goons running the show. They don't know anything useful beyond networking and raising money so they rely on the advice of bureaucrats. And how good is that? In some places it might not be bad. There are effective people in health departments that actually know there shit. Unfortunately we've been on the diversity kick for so long that many aren't hired due to competence but rather skin color and we all know how that can work out.

Example:

Cuba: We have an antiviral with demonstrably high success rates in treating patients with COVID-19

China: Our studies show this Cuban drug has incredibly high success rates

US: If only WE could find a treatment, someone in the PRIVATE SECTOR needs to find a PATENTABLE treatment


Really? Iran wouldn't be using this wondrous Cuban drug? Europe wouldn't be using it? The former Soviet Union wouldn't be using it?

Posted by: vmom at March 17, 2020 09:51 PM (G546f)

Back in the late 80's, I belonged to a film club in DC. They showed obscure indy movies and had speakers - often directors or members of the cast - answering questions afterward. They shoued a movie with Sewall in it (it was an odd movie about a Dublin bus driver - played by Albert Finney - who is obsessed with Oscar Wilde. It's the 50's and the bus driver has no idea, apparently, that Wilde was gay. He apparently has no idea that he himself is gay - until he develops an unrequited crush on a handsome young brat. Nothing physical ever happens between them. I guess it was supposed to be sort of a lower-middle class retelling of the Wilde-Bosie affair. Sewell played the handsome young brat.)

Sewell came across as charming and funny. I didn't like the movie that much, but I liked him. And damn, he was really a looker.

It's pretty vague. I think the defining feature is when you do the Wuhan plank and need people in biosuits to pick your comatose body up off the street.

Joint aches. I noticed I had some weakness in my ankles last week that came and went. Not sure if that classifies as joint pain. Truthfully though I've had that issue most of my life. It comes and goes. I can remember having the same sensation when I was a teenager so if it's something serious I would've died from it years ago. Maybe it's a magnesium deficiency. Hope it's not WuFlu because I'm taking care of an elderly parent.

Day 5.

There was a delivery to the grocery store that I patronize, this morning, I think.

Fresh produce was at about 40% of standard, cheese at 30%. Still no fresh meat or paper products. There is a delivery expected tomorrow, for paper, etc.

The beer section and wine section both seemed at full strength. What is wrong with my neighbors? Do they not understand how to survive emergencies?

But then I went to Walmart. This one has a complete grocery section, so it is not a small store.

Certain sections were bare; Biblical locust-plague bare. As might be expected, the areas involved were fresh meat, produce, frozen/microwaveable "stuff", orange juice, airy and paper ... and the areas are, naturally, Walmart-sized.

Apparently, the "run" was very much larger than it appeared.

Again, the beer section and wine section both seemed at full strength. This has the markings of a conspiracy; I just can't figure out the point of such a conspiracy. It must be truly diabolical, though.

Reading some more this blood type stuff is Chicom data, which could be all bullshit.

So, I'll wait to see if the blood type thing is confirmed from other country's data.

Anyway, according to the Chicom the Type A population among infected was greater than the general population, and type O was the much less. For the deaths, that imbalance was even greater, something like 41% of dead CHicoms were type A, compared to 31% of the general population in Wuhan.

There was one case diagnosed in the county announce Sunday. And then we had to go to the hospital Monday morning for Jules MRI. I'm not freaking out but we probably were in the hospital where this positive person was diagnosed.

Rumor around town is that there are more positive diagnosis. I have absolutely no idea if that is true. Doesn't scare me this crap is way overblown as far as the seriousness. Well at least I don't think it's going to kill me and Jules, not sure about the rest of you morons. LOL

I have always enjoyed (most of) Frank's lyrics, "comedy music," but I really like the "shut up and play your guitar" jams.

Did I mention the time a Zappa groupie and I hitched down to Chicago to watch the premiere of 200 Motels? The movie was mind-blowing enough, but she somehow kept a running groupie-background-stories narrative that somehow didn't distract too much. We had no recreational substances before, but the flick tripped me out.

Before Zappa's show, all the Saenger staff (New Orleans venue) were called together for a Very Serious Meeting.

We were shown a picture of a guy who was believed to be Armed and Dangerous, and had been following Zappa on his tour. Another John Lennon situation was expected.

So-have a very good look, if you see this guy, say nothing, quietly inform Security (all off-duty NOPD officers, plainclothes.)


OK? Next. There is a promotion with a local radio station. The first 300 get a free Frank Zappa mask.

242 Anyway, according to the Chicom the Type A population among infected was greater than the general population, and type O was the much less. For the deaths, that imbalance was even greater, something like 41% of dead CHicoms were type A, compared to 31% of the general population in Wuhan.


MERS - retroactive studies showed it hit Rh Negative HARDER

so... I don't know that its rh factor but the genetic aspect does that make sense? the genetic tendency to get hammered by this could simply be associated with a genetic pool that is heavily one blood type or another (since blood type is a genetic trait)

I dunno

252 So...how does PA intend to enforce a law that prohibits people from bring in ammo from other states (except through a licensed dealer)? Are they going to hire Customs agents to check people when they cross the state line into PA? (Which would be funny, given that many of its politicians get very upset at the idea that people who enter the United States from other countries need to show a passport/visa to a CBP officer.)

That's crap. Hopefully my friends in PA put a stop to that BS.

280 Many of the studies regarding Wuhan Flu are difficult to interpret because they are in vitro, do not test whether collected particles are infective/viable, and do not discuss load. The Chinese studies (it appears) by and large lack external peer review. The overall message appears to be: be scared, very scared, regardless of the literature. I don't know what to believe.

DO IT

Most of the online brokers aren't charging trade commissions at all anyone, following Schwab (although I was charged for an OTC buy at my place recently).

Even if you only buy one frikn share of each thing you're interested in, you could set up for dividend reinvestment and have your stuff buy more stuff for you.

There's a lot of online edumaction or real books if you prefer.

You could buy some KO to get started!

303 >> What do they know that we do not?

I think I've got that figured out, or at least what they're thinking. I've been listening to the top guys doing interviews on FOX and FBN all through the day. Ben Carson, Surgeon General, Mnuchin, Scarf Lady, Fauci, and some other lower level financial/economic types.

THey're looking at the data coming in from other countries. We've got a novel new virus that's a fast spreader, and is particularly deadly to the elderly. How bad it could be, they don't know, but worst case looks pretty bad.

Hospitals could be overwhelmed, and they'd have to start rationing care based on some criteria, letting those who don't make the cut die. That's a terrible decision to have to make. So, let's avoid having to do that.

How do we avoid it. Well we slow the hell out of the spread. How do we do that? Greatly reduce person to person contact.

And then Treasury starts thinking about that. If we do that, we're gonna crash the economy. How bad? They run the numbers. Pretty bad.

But the longer we wait, the worst it will get in the worst case.

Maybe, just maybe, if we do it now, do it big and YUGE, we can nip it in the bud. Yeah, we'll crash the economy, but if we can stop the letting old people die and all that, it will bounce back soon.

How long? Well, if we do it now, right now, going with maximum measures, shut the whole country down, we may do it.

And we may come out of it with a rebound like you've never seen.

That was the call Donny Two Scoops had to make, folks. Go big now, and risk all that, or do we wait and risk mass death and weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Donny Two Scoops made the call. He knows the economic hit could kill him in Nov. But this is the best chance to go bit and YUGE now.

He chose to do it. He's putting the country ahead of his own interests, folks, although if it works, it will greatly enhance his interests. But it's a big gamble.

He's playing that hand. THat's Donny Two Scoops.

322 Think about what has transpired in less than a weeks time. We have handed control of nearly everything in our lives to the government.

In many places, they are telling us when we can leave our homes and when we must return to them.

They have decided what events or religious services we can attend, how many people are allowed to be there and which businesses are allowed to stay open.

If this disease turns out to be not nearly what they have hyped?

Then this was a Deep State PsyOp to determine how far they could push their control.

337 Dealing with people all day long who are talking about not having any work because our wonderful Kate Brown has shut all the restaurants down, and other places are closing too.

I commented on an earlier thread that this is why the Democrats desperately want Trump to issue an executive order mandating "shelter in place" nationwide.

Because, if the epidemic isn't that bad, there is going to be a huge backlash against the blue state governors and mayors who shut their states and cities down.

They want Trump to issue a nationwide shutdown order, so Trump can be blamed.

Beervirus orgin.

China media tells us that it first appeared in the open Chinese live animal food market.

Bullshit.

It was the dead, highly infected monkeys that were thrown in the trash behind that Level 4 Chinese lab and fished out by bums to eat. The first COVAD19 cases were reported about 4 miles from that lab, in late September.

Because the janitors and cleaning people work after hours when nobody is looking, and just toss everything in the same trash.

And because that is what bums do, eat what they can find.

Under Hitlery, gun owners would have fully expected this move with or without COVID-19 with absolutely no hope of restoration.

Beervirus orgin.

China media tells us that it first appeared in the open Chinese live animal food market.

Bullshit.

It was the dead, highly infected monkeys that were thrown in the trash behind that Level 4 Chinese lab and fished out by bums to eat. The first COVAD19 cases were reported about 4 miles from that lab, in late September.

Because the janitors and cleaning people work after hours when nobody is looking, and just toss everything in the same trash.

And because that is what bums do, eat what they can find.

I agree with most of it. One characteristic of this virus, and I don't know it compares to N1H1, SARS, MERS, regular flu, is that what they call "viral load" - quantity per volume, is higher in asymptomatic samples vs. symptomatic. So healthy and no symptoms can be a walking typhoid mary (hyperbolic, but make the point).

Then - like butterflies - you could emerge into a communally sterile and pristine world - able to compare infection charts and discuss contagion models without being bothered by the rest of us snot sipping counter licking infection incubators.

Honestly - I'm thinking of handing out cash prizes at this point - if you'll just quit working so hard to give the rest of us the help we really do not want.

Peter Hitchens lived in the USSR for a few years. He said if you were walking down the street and a store received stock, you would run in and buy as much as you could carry. Didn't matter what the product was.

If you didn't need whatever it was you would trade for things you did need. Everyone had money, but unless you were somehow connected there wasn't much you could buy.

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at March 17, 2020 11:22 PM (sy5kK)

523 that can't be right


it's not.

so "viral load" means the amount of virus you end up exposed to - the amount that "hits" your immune system. so, like an ER doc or a person like that would get hit with a LOT of virus = high viral load

those people tend to get very sick and have higher mortality than maybe they otherwise would (being probably younger and more fit)

but if you get a lower viral load - as in you touch a surface with sort of vestiges of the virus on it, you could get a milder infection. but really that doesn't matter in some cases b/c older/infirm people are dying from the secondary infection of this - the pneumonia, the lung infections...you could have a light initial load, a mild "cold" - which turns into a viral pneumonia ANYWAY if you are immunocompromised or something like that

I hope that makes sense!

oh and btw this can happen with a normal cold as well. any URI actually. I'm always very strict with my kids when they have a cold, to medicate it and rest well, because the cold may suck, but secondary infections are way, way worse (and we tend to sinus infections which are godawful)

That doesn't mean I can't stand up and reach for something which you just about have to do at least some of the time due to the shelf height.

And btw, Trump was right, it IS a hoax. By that he meant the response was out of proportion to our previous responses to similar outbreaks.

Then he realized they would persist in this and nail him even tho it's a lie. Just like they did with Bush and Katrina.

Even tho all the problems were caused by the New Orleans Mayor and the Louisiana Governor (both Democrats) they continued to lie about it and of course Bush wouldn't refute them even with the truth.

I'm glad he did go along with them. It's called Ju Jitsu where you use your opponents force against them. Puts them off balance and you can uses that to put them on the ground.

Watch all these Dem Governors in the next few weeks as the numbers are not as drastic as they claimed and their over reactions come back to bite them on their asses.

I can see a few Governors running this year who will find out just how pissed people are over being dicked around over the normal flu but these guys wanted to destroy Republicans no matter what they also destroyed.

So much of this is guesswork and projection. A lot of people who are infected might never find out they are infected because they don't have any symptoms. Each of them might infect someone else who gets seriously ill - but they'll never know.

Posted by: qdpsteve at March 17, 2020 11:33 PM (L2ZTs)

584 Things will be back in about a week or two IF the numbers of infected versus dead don't go out of normal range.

All the other areas either gave the wrong or false statistics or were special cases because they became infected directly and not by person to person to person.

I'm thinking of Italy they had a Chinese group of people where the virus expanded from.

And in Seattle that nursing home was directly infected and a lot of old people died.

We do know this seems to have bad outcomes for those over 70 or so and that is an emergency. But most of people of that age are actually in good shape unless they are in a local zone that gets infected. They can easily stay away from crowds and don't have jobs so a bit of care and caution will do them right.

Some cash for them might be in order as they live on fixed incomes and all this nonsense in re stores and such will make their shopping expensive and a bigger bite out of their limited funds.

Unless they've already provided for themselves over and above SS.

It's all an accounting gimmick. Notice how they always have money for outsize expenditures not provided for in the budgets they vote in? Like Bush I's Savings and Loan bailout, Bush II's spending on Iraq and Obama's spendingon the Bank bail out?

Yeah. the National debt and the budget deficits etc are accounting gimmicks they don't actually represent out current assets to debt ratio. Nor do they account for the funds that are sloshing around in government accounts.

Trillions in taxes and they still owe money? I don't think so.

638 >> Trillions in taxes and they still owe money?

Well, when you spend even more trillions that you take in taxes, you have trillions you have to borrow, which Uncle has been doing to the tune of debt held by the public doubling about every 8 years.

Looking at the latest Daily Treasury statement, Debt held by the Public stood at $17.5T as of March 16th.

That's Uncle Sam's cumulative borrowing from the bond market. Subtract what the Fed has monetized, and the rest is in T's held by the public.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at March 17, 2020 11:44 PM (rCwaK)

639 NO ONE can pay back their debt.

Figure it out.

If you took and just took in taxes and didn't spend anything it would take us 20 years to pay the debt down.

Since they aren't going to stop spending, they will NEVER reduce the debt.

And they don't have to because as I just above they know it's just an accounting gimmick a number that they throw out their (where do all the numbers come from? Not from an outside accounting firm. NO ACCOUNTING has ever been done on the government. we have NO idea how much they really have) To satisfy the critics and scare the peons.

Plus since they are a sovereign government they don't have to treat debt like normal businesses or people do.

So let's just relax and not get too worried about the National Debt. I'll worry about that when they start making debt payments part of the budget. (icicles in hell comes to mind)

We do know that with people staying at home there will probably be a baby boom in the next 9 months or so.

We can use this to adapt an 0bama-era metric to our needs, substituting the statistics for births and deaths for jobs gained or lost.

The numbers can then be released as: "Lives saved or created."

If you follow the Daily Treasury Statement, you see Uncle's operations on a cash basis. He only borrows (sells bonds and notes and bills) when he needs cash.

Uncle Sam has a "checking account" at the Federal Reserve. He deals in high powered M0 money directly. Electronic, not physical cash.

And millions are like pennies to an individual's checking account.

As of March 2016, Uncle Sam had $418B in cash in that account. I'm rounding to the nearest billion.

He had $131B of deposits and $40B of withdrawals. Of the former, $46B was taxes deposited, and $83B was debt sales.

Of the outgo, $25B was debt redemptions. They have to roll Ts all the time, paying off the bond credit card by putting in on new credit cards. Nothing else makes the $1B mark, save for a little over $1B in "unclassified" cash payments.

get 5 gallon buckets to store it in. It will last longer without weevils if you can get it into a freezer for 10 days.

I bake lots of bread.


Posted by: Kindltot at March 17, 2020 10:59 PM (6rS3m)



Leave 4 in. of space under the lid. Install a Schrader Valve in the lid. (standard tire valve-stem).

Get a tank of C02, and pressurize the bucket to between 5 & 10 PSI. Just enough to bulge the lid; it won't contain any greater pressure.

Then put the buckets of flour into a freezer, set for -10f. "Zero" ain't quite cold enough, here.

Ten days, as was written above.

No bugs, and less oxygen reaction in the months to come.

THe gold stock is valued currently at $11.041B. That's low you say. Indeed, the Fed currently values that gold at only $42 per ounce.

At current market prices, it would be $388B.

Here's the deal with the valuation. THe $42/oz was back during the international gold standard. THe last fixed value. The Fed has created only $11B against that stock.

There was talk of reevaluating that during the Crisis years, allowing the Fed to create a few hundred billion more of digidollars against the gold stock.

They didn't, and it's still just $11B.

You are talking about a mutual fund. Vanguard does them and I am told they don't charge a lot.
That would be a dividend fund of some sort, and you may not be able to pick and choose, but you can probably find a fund with most of those in them.

Yeah, the surgery thing hits very close to home, as in double bulls eye.

I have non-elective, non-optional surgery scheduled for mid-May. Did I mention the surgery in not optional? My ICD battery has to be replaced, and it's a bit more complicated than switching out one's smoke detector batteries. Did I mention the surgery is not optional? The 5-year battery life is getting close to its expiration date, and no battery power means no functioning ICD which means no pacemaker, which is important, but much more important is no battery means no defib paddles. Did I mention the surgery is not optional? So without the surgery I will have my life span shortened to months or days. Did I mention the surgery is not optional?

It's this. US govt. by law says the gold is valued at $42.x per Troy ounce. Treasury owns that gold, but gives the Fed gold certificates for it, and the Fed created $42.x dollars against those certificates and gave that back to Treasury.

That was from the old international gold standard days, when the US govt used to say it would redeem FRNs for gold internationally (wouldn't do that domestically since FDR). That was the last rate before Nixon ended that.

Posted by: Average Guy

The toilet paper in socialist Hungary (and comradely socialist neighbors) was made from recycled newspaper. Not very recycled. You could still read letters, and sometimes words in it.

Often, based on font, you could identify which government newspaper your toilet paper came from.

But there was never a shortage, because printing government propaganda was a State Priority.

866 Something I've wondered about today...

If we are intentionally shutting down sectors fo our economy for two weeks, at least, and passing trillion dollar stimulus measures in order to stunt the growth of the virus outbreak... why aren't also doing a massive PR campaign? A lot of folks who don't follow news and politics at all aren't going to change their behaviors... at all. Think maybe we should be bombarding those people with constant, unending reminders to stay 6-feet from people outside home, cough into your arm, wash your hands, etc. Gotta believe if 80% of adult population followed this advice over the next two weeks, we'd see the needed slowdown in the spread of Wuhan Virus.

Remdesivir...has been put into the spot light for treatment of COV-19......still gotta have some decent trials. Thinking this in combo with another as of yet named anti-viral may be a win.

Love Trump for telling everyone in PHARMA to by-pass animal trials and go straight to human trials

We on the clock with no official time outs...

Good vaccine still takes time as a virus can transmutate 2-4 times while we mess with the codes.

But it's nothing we don't already do with the common flu which traditionally comes out of....SHOCK...China every year without fail....go figure that

The suspension is shipments from suppliers to Amazon, and intake of 3rd party inventory, i.e. "fulfilled by Amazon". You can still buy items that are in stock.

Amazon must be making money by the metric ton if it can't get inventory into the distribution centers quickly enough.

Wife and I went out for a few things yesterday and I drove by the parking lot for the commuter train. We are the main first stop of the line going into Chicago. Probably 300 parking spaces usually full.
It had about 30 cars in it.
People questioned about how sanitary the commuter rail cars would be. The little bug eyed troll mayor of Chicago said that the cars were being sanitized on a regular basis.

Perfectly plausible scenario, and I almost entirely concur (I'm thinking a break-even in the Senate), but far from certain this far out.

The wild-cards are 1) whether The Bern runs 3rd party (which I doubt), and 2) who the DNC nominates after Biden has an "accident/emergency".

1117 I took home ec in college but we did not bake.
In the olden days when I was in HS, the boys had to spend a few hours in the ec. kitchen learning how to cook. We all joked about it, that's women's work!I doubt the building even has a kitchen in a classroom anymore. Its a very rural school, but the principal, assistant principals, and superintendents, are from a modern era of thinking. Why does every school now need a principal, assistant principal, and superintendent.? The whole school from kindergarten to 12 grade are all in the same building. Senor class is usually about 25 students.

1120 A tale of hope ...

My 31 year old daughter's drum brake separated on her older Jetta as she was coming into the heavily pot-holed lane down to her drive. Long story short, she researched what it would take to fix the thing, ordered the parts, got a lot of helpful advice from mechanic types at the parts stores, borrowed a few tools (she already has a pretty impressive stash she's added to for years), watched some youtube videos, and got down there and did the job herself. In the middle of winter, in the snow. This after she ordered and changed out her glow plugs. And did a complete brake job on her previously owned Subaru years before.

She's the most feminine looking sweetheart you could imagine, an avid outdoors(wo)man, has extensive wilderness rescue training, and has built log cabins in the wilds of Alaska. She's lived a winter in a dry cabin in the Yukon training iditarod dogs and survived moose and bear encounters.

She can make homemade bread too, and can whip up a gumbo as good as mine. And her disdain for social media equals mine.

So I know we lament this younger generation, but there is hope.

If my math is right, the equivalent amount for a person making $50K / year is $175.

So this is less than what millions of churchgoers tithe every single month or week.

1127 Massachusetts state employees are headed back to the office today. From Mass.Gov...

Massachusetts state government is open for business on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Non-emergency employees should work remotely (telework) unless they perform core functions that require them to report to their regular work location. Employees should contact their managers for confirmation of their work location.

Total COVID19 cases in MA... 218 (up about 20 since Friday) Well more than half of the cases are in the cluster of counties in/around Boston - Middlesex has the most, Suffolk (Boston) and Norfolk (where I live, sigh) have half as many). 2/3 of the cases did not require hospitalization, nobody has yet died in MA from Kung Flu.

Just for perspective, MA population: 6.9million

Those predicting the end of the world and (ahem) 20% unemployment and whatnot from this should prepare to be bitterly, bitterly disappointed.

1133 Mornin' shut-ins!

I was something in like the second year that boys could take what was then called Home Ec and girls could take shop. One girl took shop. Turned out to be a lesbian. Shocker.

But we boys all signed up for Home Ec because a) There were lots of girls there and b) You got to eat the food you cooked.

This was still an era where everybody kind of snickered over the whole thing. My rep as a wise=ass got me hauled down to Guidance to verify that I was serious about even taking Home Ec.

But you know what: I had a terrific teacher and I discovered that I loved to cook, It was the foundation for everything I've ever done as far as cooking. I still hear my old teacher's voice when I'm working in the kitchen. My old-fashioned Italian mom only taught the girls to cook. That wasn't "men's work."

Actually, it is NOT insane, it is necessary. We are going to be at a 20% unemployment rate within 2 weeks, and in fact that number may be low. We are now jumping with both feet into 1931 employment levels, instantaneously. There's no way to avoid that now. This is going to require a mobilization like FDR did in 1941 - 1942 for us to survive, and yes, it means that we are going to have to go just about full socialist for a time. All of our other choices are much, much worse. If we do it well, at least we can keep the real socialists from taking over, because they'll never let go. At least with us doing it, there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

1180 In this small town of 4K people, we have two really busy restaurants, and a couple other more or less coffee shops. Now,the two busy restaurants employ, roughly, over all shifts 35 people. I asked one of the girls where the employees live, and she said mostly here in town (she actually works at both restaurants, the bigger one on Sunday mornings). 35 wage earners losing their jobs in a town of 4K would be a real bite. So far Little Rock is showing some common sense.

I was at our usual pharmacy, supermarket, and sandwich shop yesterday between 16:30 and 19:00. A good number of people in all three places, but down somewhat from what normally would be the case. Everybody went about their business and were polite with one another. Anyone who coughed did so into their elbow, but there were few of them.

In our neighborhood the only folks out and about are those of us walking dogs. The owner of one dog with whom our dog likes to play said that she believed that the school year here in Delaware is going to be terminated soon. I replied that the shutdown certainly will go past the end of March.

I'm in the midst of pruning and rearranging our Scout troop's schedule now. Everything we had on tap for the rest of March is cancelled. I'm rearranging April -- moving the camping trip weekend is the big thing -- but the options there are closing down, too.

I think the Dims had better be damn careful with how they go forward trying to exploit this. If they were smart, and they are not, they'd drop that approach altogether. Those itching to use the whip hand have been exposed, and it sure as hell wasn't Donald Trump.

No, I've been up most of the night, grappling with just how amazingly bad this has become. Publius had a good post last night as to how Trump and his close advisors have realized this, and have decided to go all in on stopping the spread of the virus, even though the cost (and they realize this) is going to be the total collapse of our consumer-based economy in the short term.

The only hope is to demonstrate enough strength and leadership to earn people's trust so that Trump retains the presidency in the fall. And I say, if we have to print and distribute something around $4 or $5 Trillion to accomplish that, it's still better than the alternative.

That said, it seems we're trying here to duplicate what South Korea did. They were on a course to exceed China in the spread of the illness, clamped-down (the way we are here), and are seeing a decline in cases overall less than 6-weeks later.

My guess is that Trump hopes to keep Kung Flu from ever getting to the levels SK saw. Which, if the numbers we're seeing are to be believed, might be working.

People don't understand deflation, because the big deflationary waves only hit about once every 80 years. Now we've got one that we didn't see coming. The reason Deflation is so bad is because once it sets in (and it has, suddenly) it means your economy begins to SHRINK each year. It's a death spiral for a capitalist economy.

one of the few ways to cope with it and retain jobs is to place massive tarrifs and import controls on all goods, so that jobs are no longer outsourced. Of course there's a price to pay for that too; it destabilizes the world, but that looks like it's happening whether we help it along or not.

People have become completely blasé and detached from reality, closing large swatches of the US economic engine are going to have devastating effects that will linger for years.


I am working on a project that was substantially complete last week and the facility was supposed to open to the public this week, this is a 100 million dollar project and now are they not opening, they have had to lay off and furlough a substantial portion of their staff.


And the amount of lost revenue is going to put this 100 million dollar project in jeopardy, they can't go without revenues for months.


Nobody can.


This is going to be devastating.

1241 > Why is deflation bad. It means your dollar is worth more.

Ask the factory owner (and all the people who work for him) whose widgets are now worth half what they were before, but whose rent and payroll expenses have remained the same.

Or the farmer whose wheat is worth half what it was before, but whose mortgage remains just the same.

Or...

Ignoring the fact that most pension funds are invested in the stock markets, and their trading is limited in many cases by law...the markets provide liquidity to businesses and individuals and are a vital measure of the overall state of the economy.

This is a new world - our economy has been utterly destroyed, none of us saw it coming but it's happened, and we must accept it and make plans to control this new, quite literally post-apocalyptic world we find ourselves in. We're not going back to where we were, it's already too late for that. We've got to build something new from scratch, and we have to do it very fast.

That's exactly what he's doing. It's not a big mystery. He and his team have been saying this all along.

If we don't take drastic steps right now we will end up in a situation where our healthcare system will be overrun. We can all do the math even if we don't have all the stats. There simply aren't enough resources to handle that kind of spike in the need of ICU beds, respirators, etc..

Our healthcare system like every countries is not built to handle a epidemic of that level. So we are trying to decrease the spike and that is causing all this disruption.

It's not a deep state plot unless you believe the entire world is in on it including Trump and his entire team.

In 2010, the H1N1 pandemic was loosed on the world by the same Chinese that brought us the Mexican Beer Virus.


Per CDC...


59 million American contracted it, resulting in 265 thousand hospitalizations and 12 thousand deaths.


Literally no one even noticed until there were 1000 deaths from it.


In fact Obummer went golfing on the very same day he announced his task force to combat it.


We got through it without destroying our economy.


This response is disproportionate to what is actually occurring in the real world.


We don't even have 200 deaths and we are on the cusp of cratering our economy.


This is fucking insanity.

If you look back at history, you will find quite a few years where the world, quite literally, goes insane. Most of those are war years like 1861, 1914, 1939, 1941 - there also are a few great financial collapses such as 1929 - 1930, now forgotten are when this happened in the 1870's and 1820's. Our new interconnected society now means that a collapse like this can happen almost instantly - none of us realized the risk until this moment.

When the world has gone insane, we have to do what we previously considered to be insane to deal with it. Because if we do nothing, then worse people than us will take over and act in our place, and the insanity of the would allow them to do it. Ever wonder how Lenin took over Russia? Because he was willing to act at a moment like this, when no one else in his society was. We need to do whatever it takes to take control of this situation now, even if that involves doing things that were unthinkable even a week ago.

Televisions were mentioned above (I have a 56" rear projection TV I bought for $2500 that I can replace for a couple hundred bucks).
Telephone service - we are not *renting* our phones from Ma Bell, and there are so many more services available at relatively lower costs.
Computers, etc. - they get cheaper, and more powerful with every new innovation.

Well here are some FACTS. These drops in stock prices are being caused by short term short sales to gamble on making a buck by the big money market managers. Sure there are a lot of pensions funded in the stock market but every one of them is managed by some wall street turd who gets a percentage of every trade.
Before this BS started I had over $1M in the market in long term assets. It has dropped $40,000 since they started riding the roller coaster. But I haven't lost a nickel because I have not sold.
