The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

America will get through this. Because YOU are an American. YOU are brave, and strong, and kind.

You just need to be reminded of that from time to time. It’s so easy to forget, when you’re force-fed a diet of how rotten you are. From people who are rotten to the core.

They are evil. You are good. Never, EVER forget that. "Doc Farmer"


Quote II

“We’re not in the business of coffee, we just serve coffee—we’re definitely in the business of kindness,Francois Reihan


Quote III

Charter, like the rest of us, should do what is necessary to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. Social distancing has a real slowing effect on the virus—that means lives can be saved.

A hazard condition isn't acceptable for the infrastructure beyond the short-term. Why is it acceptable for our health? Nick Wheeler, a video operations engineer for Charter in Denver


Quote IV

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” Anais Nin


Quote V

“As an MIT PhD in Biological Engineering who studies & does research nearly every day on the Immune System, the #coronavirus fear mongering by the Deep State will go down in history as one of the biggest fraud to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, & push MANDATED Medicine!” Shiva Ayyadurai

Virtual reality dances. Now to find some of those virtual reality dollar bills.

These are unprecedented times and everyone is making due as best they can as we all try to live some semblance of normal lives. Though sports and social gatherings may be ruined for the foreseeable future, thankfully getting a face full of cans is still on the menu.

New York-based strip club Die Happy Tonight (a.k.a. DHT), which is known for its wholesome, girl-next-door type strippers, is offering FREE virtual reality dances from their performers to help everyone stave off cabin fever. (THAT LINK IS NSFW.)

What is known as Pajama Thursday? The Thursday I go to work in my pajamas. For nearly 20 years I have worked from home. Secrets to working from home.

Working from home can be a challenge for so many reasons, not the least of which is that it requires you to create your own structures and routines. It’s a cliché to say “put on pants” when giving advice to people who are just starting a work from home life, but it’s a cliche for a reason: Putting on pants is kind of easy not to do when you work from home. It’s also not great! (I am, for the record, wearing pants as I type this.)

I’ve worked from home for many years now, and I love it. And because I’ve done it for so long, I’ve given a lot of advice to friends and colleagues over the years about the ways I stay disciplined. I have not, however, ever shared these tips publicly and so today I shall do so! These are the three habits that I most often cite as being key to making working from home, um, work for me.


What do I credit for successfully working from home? Loyalty to your employer, first and foremost.

The Deep State, out for good or for total control of you? You be the judge.

A new bill sponsored by Lindsey Graham, Richard Blumenthal, Josh Hawley and Dianne Feinstein called the EARN IT Act of 2020 will force encrypted communication providers, like Telegram and Protonmail, to give American intelligence services the ability to wiretap private chats or face steep legal penalties. The law’s supporters are using the cover of coronavirus panic to quietly advance it without much of a debate.

According to the bill’s text, it is intended to fight sex trafficking and child pornography online by criminally implicating tech companies that do not create a back channel for federal law enforcement to access on a whim. The nuts and bolts on how this will work has been kept opaque. A committee composed of members of the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security will set the terms only after it passes.

The Show Must Go On or something like that.

Since it's not safe to pack a large number of people into an arena or auditorium right now, many entertainment productions have canceled, or have continued in a weird manner without the usual studio audience. If you've watched the late night shows or the town hall meetings, you are probably impressed by how much the energy from the audience added to the usual show. Now imagine that in pro wrestling. While other sporting events were canceled, the WWE went ahead with Monday Night Raw in an empty arena. But they had fun with it. Paul “Triple H” Levesque joined the commentary team with plenty of jokes about the situation.

What's the difference between the late Adolf Hitler and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D)?

Now, the current mayor of New Orleans has gifted herself with the power to suspend the Second Amendment in a slightly different way.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) signed a coronavirus emergency order last week allowing her to ban the sale and transportation of firearms.

She signed a follow-up proclamation on March 16, 2020, further emphasizing her emergency powers to “suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation, of alcoholic beverages.”

The declaration declaring the mayor’s power to restrict gun sales and transportation says she is “empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”
In other words, if she can’t confiscate firearms in the current emergency, she can damn well try and make it so no one can buy a firearm.

Reason #1,789 why I hate people and hate flying. Not necessarily in that order either.

Irate passenger smacks female attendant across the face after allegedly spitting on her in insane video

A wild video captured an extremely angry passenger reportedly aboard a Brussels Airlines flight who attacked a flight attendant after a heated argument.

The irate man was seen yelling at a male flight attendant who tried to get him to calm down before a supervisor came to the scene, only to be spit on and screamed at before the passenger was seen striking her in the face

Once you have seen every show on NetFlix, you can read the Bible.

BURLINGAME, CA—Local Christian Tim Kabara has grown extremely bored during this whole Coronavirus quarantine thing. He has already watched every show on Netflix, done 6,000 push-ups, and read every book on his shelf—every book except for his dusty old Bible.


Kabara grew up in a conservative Christian family and goes to church every Sunday, so it only makes sense that this is the only book on his shelf that hasn’t been read. He is actually quite surprised that it’s still up there.

“Okay, fine,” Kabara said to himself—and to his grandpa, who is in Catholic heaven. “Let's open this bad boy up, see what’s in here.” Amazed, Kabara read the Good Book for nearly six hours straight.

Well so much for "Social Distancing" and things you can never unsee.Genius Award Winners.

Despite warnings about “social distancing,” a couple decided to have sex in public outside a Florida hospital, according to cops who busted the duo on a pair of criminal charges.

As detailed in arrest affidavits, Ann Marie Tucker, 45, and Albert Singletary, 37, were “found to be exposing sexual organs in plain view of the public” across from St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Petersburg.

The pair were flattening the curve one evening “in close proximity to a no trespassing sign,” police report. Singletary’s “penis, testicles, and buttocks were displayed within view” of nearby citizens, while Tucker’s vagina was also on view earlier this month.

84 Reason #1,789 why I hate people and hate flying. Not necessarily in that order either.

I've entertained myself by watching youtubes of these airplane brouhahas. First, you have people who are already irritable because they've been jerked around for hours at the airport.

176 74, Oldcat: "Look at AOC. Her group has been threatening to sweep out both Dems and
GOP for 2 years. Aside from AOC in the primary, they have not taken a
single scalp, not even a Dem one."

A couple of my dim D friends from college days were high-fiving on facebook this morning that an AOC-PAC backed woman had taken out a long time D man in the Illinois primary.

Don't know if they were glad for a policy reason (kind of doubt it, as they don't seem to delve too deeply into that, more aging hip wine-mom stuff), or because Vagina! Yay!

2/1/20 coverage at tiger droppings --

Faced with almost $100,000 in federal tax liens, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell on Friday blamed most of the debt on penalties and interest but declined to provide a further explanation of her financial troubles to the public, saying the issue is too complicated.

In brief remarks about the debt, Cantrell said she and her husband are working with a tax attorney to dispute many of the charges. She also said they had paid $60,000 toward the debt over the course of two years, though she did not say how much she currently owes or how much she had originally underpaid.


She seems nice.

It's for the marbles.

The Chinese, our totally corrupt and treasonous intelligent services, and the propaganda whores who serve them both for reasonable rates, all conspired to tank the United States attorney with a particularly nasty flu that originated either from a bio-weapons lab or the wet-meat market.

Just follow the morbidity rates, contrast them with other viruses, and compare both with the hysteria. It's all by design.

Does anyone think the vaunted 17 intelligence agencies missed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the 9/11 attacks, and this bio-attack/farce simply because they are incompetent hacks?

Gal I talk with says she's having a hard time getting to work because there's hardly any jeepneys out and about now.

Also, not only is the nation locked down, but individual islands and cities within the Philippines are locking down from each other. For example, you can't go to Cebu from Negros and another island or two which I forget. Luzon, where Manila is, is locked down I believe.

Also you can leave Cebu, but if you do you can't come back. You also can't fly to or from other cities like Dumaguete or Davao.

It seems, from the data worldwide so far, that countries with malaria problems aren't experiencing Kung Flu outbreaks nearly as severe.

Natural immunity? It's an interesting theory. Add that to anti-malarials shaping up to be a partial cure/preventative, and it all makes some sense.

Posted by: Donna&&&&&&V at March 18, 2020 11:02 PM (d6Ksn)


You don't hear many fun plane stories, do you? It's just a boring place. One time, though, I was sitting in my seat, as everyone was getting settled, and there was a conversation behind me in the aisle. I couldn't hear the complaining passenger, but I could hear the Indian flight attendant's side, which consisted of (imagine a high-voiced Indian accent):

"Please do not smirk at me sir"
"I ask you not to smirk at me sir"
"Please do not smirk at me sir"

On and on like that for several minutes. Airline seats being airline seats, I couldn't twist around and see if the guy was really smirking or not, without making it really obvious.

363 Will I regret going here? Probably.

Jesus on the cross was offered poisoned wine. Unlikely the Romans would allow drugged relief to the crucified - more likely Jews would secretly offer the poison to the dying.

He refused. He would live mortal life to the fullest.

He was at the end offered unpoisoned drink, which he took. Enough to loosen his tongue for his last words.

Some suggest his expiration right after the drink meant he did take the poison. I don't think so.

Mark 15:23
Matt 27:34
John 19:28-30

Luke 23:36 is unclear on the matter.

Anyone with better knowledge feel free to correct my humble scriptural scholarship. No Holiday Inn Express for me.

I have... never before encountered the idea that Roman soldiers used the sponges that corked their wine bottles to wipe their butts. Or that that was what Jesus was offered. Ugh. Must've been in Mark 17.

Not sure I understand the question. But - if you send your tax return in by 4/15, without payment of any tax due, interest and penalties will not begin until 7/15 (if you haven't paid the tax due by that date).

This rule seems confusing, because normally, you can get an extension of filing your return, but if you think you'll owe money, you have to send in an estimate of what you'll owe. Or pay a penalty.

You still must file either the regular return or an extension by 4/15. Any payments required are due 7/15 instead of 4/15. So no penalties/interest until after 7/15.

I have never heard it taught that this was poison; I understood that Gall was an early extract of opium, which was sometimes given to dying criminals to ease their suffering, if the Roman guards felt sorry for them. By all accounts, it had a very bitter taste.

and I think saying that sponge story is just silly. You wouldn't cork wine with a sponge, then or now. As far as having them around, they were a seafaring people. They would have hide piles of sponge around for many uses.

Maybe the rest of the country is different, but I don't see how. Only government workers or some of the people working for big business are going to be employed soon. (Augusta, Ga) We have always been virtually recession/depression proof. Fort Gordon, Plant Vogtle, Masters Tourney, Clubcar, EZ Go, big fertiliizer plant, etc. We don't even have mandatory shut downs for restaurants or bars yet, but the bloodbath there is going to be epic. Been a huge Trump fan, but now. Maybe he has to be a reflexive cheerleader, but he was disputing a 20% unemployment rate. In a month or 2 that will be best possible case here. Hope they get on the stick. Soon the only thing open here is going to hospitals and grocery stores. Police in some of the localities are no longer even responding to anything but emergency calls. Tommorrow they vote on closing all the restaurants and bars. I have a few months woth of bills saved ,a retirement fund (ha) and a personal investment fund that has lost 50 %. I am better off than most people I know.

418 my sister tells of a time when she sat next to a passenger who disgusted everyone who saw him. He was a man in his late 60's or so, looked like an old hippie burnout with long but very thinning gray hair. He had decent clothes on, but only sandals on his feet. As soon as they got settled, he kicked off his sandals and spent the rest of the flight picking his dirty, yellow, horrible gnarly toes. And he had an aisle seat so his orc-foot was sticking out into the aisle where everyone could see it. he didn't care.

Actually, I do have one horrific experience involving another passenger on a plane. In 1980, I was flying to JFK from Brussels. The plane was full and I got stuck with a middle seat. The man in front of me had shoulder length black hair and it was FILTHY. He actually had lice! He was some dirty Eurotrash hippie. I complained to the stewardess and she had nowhere to move me, but at least she made the dirty Belgian move his seat upright so his greasy head wasn't hanging over my lap."

Yuck.

Not to get into oneup-personship, but before I boarded a return flight from Hawaii to the mainland, an obese, funny Hispanic guy from L.A. and I were shooting the shit before boarding. We made a bet about who would get the worse seat (we were both traveling alone). I landed a seat beside a horribly fat lady from Tonga and her two children, both human balloons covered with fat. They had literal trash bags full of chips, cookies, name it, and ate so frantically I was covered in Cheetos at one point. Even worse, the kids kept elbowing me as they tore into the trash bags. It actually hurt and I became irate, yelled at them, and the stewardess asked me to get under control

Halfway through the flight I went to the back and met up with the L.A. guy, whom I had forgotten. He acknowledged me and said, "cholo, here's your drink!" He handed me some crap whiskey, which I downed, and we proceeded to drink our way back across the Pacific.

Nope.
Oh and the priest is saying that the 9 person max limit includes the priest, organist, singer, reader, and altar boy for the mass, leaving just 4 slots for the family.
Somehow the funeral home attendants bringing and retrieving their mom's casket do not count in the mix.

Posted by: Thomas Bender at March 18, 2020 11:02 PM

My district is trying to figure out something to provide daycare to the children of first-responders and others who 1) are always on call and 2) can be exposed to the virus at work.

Did a little help with prepping breakfast/lunch bags for kids, and there's quite a network of delivery services in the early stages. The superintendent, a peach of a local guy, has been working at least 12 hours a day since we got shut down. Too many families were just getting out of financial holes because of Trump's economy, so now everyone who can is helping out.

Funny thing, though: I don't know what my fellow churchgoers need. When I see the same people on Sunday, I don't think, "Gee, I should get that person's number" because if they don't show up, I can ask someone else who does. But now the churches are closed.

I did not want to go...I've been about every other day in the last two weeks, alternating with another mutual close friend of ours. The guy has no family, lives alone.

Today, both a hospital palliative care person, and a little later his oncologist came in and had discussions with him. They were both *very* good and caring in their discussion, but the message was clear, and it was hard to sit and listen. Even harder to be there after they left, a lot harder.

recommending having graveside services instead of in the church right
now, that when things open up again that they have another service at
the church. Couldn't the RC do this so that parishioners would get to
have a regular funeral Mass then with the Eucharist?

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at March 18, 2020 11:41 PM (WI7YS)

The church staff is not helping the family find a workable solution. It's gotten so tense since Monday that the church's funeral coordinator now has her feathers ruffled and is requesting an apology from certain members of the family. The music director liked the family's song selection but now says the head priest has to approve them. The head priest is holding musical and readings requests hostage to getting an apology (and a donation it seems).
The five siblings, who all grew up in that church, are devastated. Four are so pissed that they will not be going to the church for the service. It may just be their Dad, one sibling, and a grandchild or two at the mass. Everyone will will watch it livestreamed.

Teigen, who is married to popular musician John Legend, has a kitchen product line at Target called, the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen collection....."



the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen. Hmmm.

Since so many of us have time on our hands, let's pass this outburst to everyone, everywhere, so they can know just what Chrissy thinks of the First Lady.

Target can spend the next few weeks explaining and justifying on line how Chrissy bad mouthing the First Lady is still good for business, but will have to wait a while for people to show them in person what they really think.

I didn't even see any stickers identifying sale items in the frozen food section when I went early this morning, and usually there are a number of products on sale.

On the plus side, the fresh bread was still being delivered so I got a bunch of rolls as there was literally nothing in the bread aisle.

The store also had instituted a temporary policy of limiting purchases on TP, bottled water, milk and hand soaps to I per family. I actually thought that was smart, a way to cut out the panic buying bullshit.

One more not so humorous observation: Now that we're having the Bug of the Century, will NY repeal its plastic bag ban law? Because nothing says safe like fresh from the rack unused plastic bags as opposed to the disease carrying paper and reusable bags. That law's repeal might be one of the few good things to come out of this panic.

651 Ok I am tired of this Kung flu shit. I just read an Ask Me Anything on Reddit from an "ER physician ". He said the usual, his hospital was overflowing with sick covid patients. They were running short of staff andhe was telling the stupid people on reddit that all of the physicians expect this social distancing to last 6 to 18 months. Because Orangemanbad. We should be testing everyone but it's too late because Orangemanbad. India has had only 3 deaths because their healthcare system is so proactive and Orangemanbad. And the stupid people on reddit were agreeing with him and saying they were fine with 6-18 month quarantine. If this virus just takes out the stupid libtards it will be worth the sacrifice.

The big stores should offer ration cards for TP. Buy a ration card for a buck, and it gets your name and photo on it. Card has coupons on it allowing purchase of one 4-roll pack per week until the panic has ended. Stores that already have an affinity card could set it up real easily. No TP sales without the ration card.

Same could be done with other products being hit by hoarders and scalpers.

Agreed, this actually is impossible. This whole op is directed at the deplorables, and that includes small businesses.

We have to be ready to actually tank the economy the next time a Democrat is president. There are many ways to do it, starting with what is happening now. Just don't spend and work as little as possible. This shithole enterprise can be brought to its knees. And for God's sake, shun any children or grandchildren who join the military to fight for "us." Start lecturing them early about how this is the Evil Empire II. Get on federal juries and nullify the government's cases. Encourage people to apply for welfare programs. You get the point.

I agree. There's scuttlebutt that our repulsive governor is going to call for another 3 weeks of closures.

My first reaction was that she's drunk on power, because it's hurting the very ones who voted for her. But she's not the only Democrat governor, so she's probably thinking there's safety in numbers.

695 So, the Portland police announced a couple of days ago that they would only be responding to violent or serious crimes.

And today, from Portland Reddit:

Just back from my local Plaid Pantry... TWO people walked out with stolen stuff while I was in line. Clerk said PPB is not responding to theft calls and thieves know it.

I saw someone at gateway fred meyer today tell the door person that they are stealing everything they are holding and the door person didn't flinch, dude just walked right out.

The Plaid on 67th told me a similar story. Said 3 teens walked in early hours, went behind the counter, and grabbed a bunch of cigs & juuls.

Things are going to go south in Portland quick. Glad I live in the burbs, where I have some hope that the cops will still enforce the anti-theft laws.

If it were up to me, I would order rent relief to each small business for every month or part thereof that a forced closure is imposed, meaning that Joe simply does not have to pay his rent for March and April. Ever. Also relief on any revolving business credit line. Suppliers can get paid 90 days after business resumes.

Landlords, lenders, and suppliers hurt by this can seek relief from the SBA.

Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Asetto at March 19, 2020 12:14 AM (QHxmP)



Hughes 500 NOTAR (No Tail Rotor)

Uses the turbine exhaust, routed through a *very* insulated, long exhaust pipe, running through the 'copter's boom.

Where the tail rotor would normally be found, is a rotationally aim-able, slotted "vent" surrounding the boom. If it points the vents to the left, the boom is pushed to the right, so the 'copter rotates to the left around it's Center of Gravity.

And etc.

Also has the ability to "vent" around the full 360 of the boom, with minor "puff" venting as controlled by fine movement of the flight controls. Used in hover and landing, of course.

I don't think they make 'em anymore. It was an FAA Flight Certified engineering and sales experiment, as much as it was any kind of aeronautic "breakthrough".

Still. Love *any* Hughes 500 'copter. Kind of a Mazda Miata of rotorcraft. Small, nimble, more quick than fast, and a Swiss Army Knife of an airframe.

734 Now that the Commie Den Governor of NV has closed NV down and will make "nonessential" businesses suffer, I ventured out with my son to get some food. NO less than 4-5 older (over 70 + years) persons were at the store (which had about 100 people shopping) to get "items." THESE are the people who should be isolating themselves so they don't contract this disease and make ER's and hospitals overburdened. Seriously, if you are an older person, PLEASE Isolate yourself so we can stop this madness. I will go to the store for you. I already did this for my neighbor.

Self-correction:

Aw, hell. I mis-remembered. NOTAR is a fan-system, powered by the engine and featuring a variable incidence fan, internal to the boom.

My mis-remembered traces back to some ancient Popular Science treatise on the concept, which was published *long* before the Hughes NOTAM actually took flight.

But I was so intrigued, the concept stuck with me, decades later.

Just was off in describing the execution.

I would venture most of these changes will become permanent. Frankly, the "Checklist" thing from Kroger has been underutilized. Even if this turns out to be largely a hoax/op, which I expect it will be with commensurate and justified repercussions, some sound results will come from it. Elderly people having groceries delivered to their vehicles is all positive at some point in their lives.

755 Outhouses... I spend a lot of summer time at a log cabin on a big island, very primitive, the outhouse is old so every couple of years I have to shovel it out, dumping spot's an old fallen tree root well. After the winter and eight months of non-use what gets shovelled out doesn't smell and resembles the potting soil you buy in sacks at Home Depot. I shovel in shorts and gloves with a bandana over my face and get into the lake as soon as I'm done (it's a little dusty).
As for the stink, it's the urine that causes most of the stink, I keep two tubs in there, one with ash collected from the wood stove and fire place and one with garden lime. Every day or two some ashes and lime sprinkled down the hole makes a huge difference in the outhouse aroma.

778 Officer! They're looting the Food King!

Portland's brilliant plan:

1) Announce that the police will no longer respond to property crimes.

2) Wide-spread theft begins.

3) It progresses to looting.

4) Grocery stores start closing.

5) Portland suddenly remembers why property crimes are enforced, declares martial law, and gets the Governor to call up the National Guard.

6) Profit!

One long-term change is likely having more stores go to the Costco model - you need a membership card to get into the store, and you have your receipt checked against the goods in your shopping cart on the way out. Not much shrinkage with that model.

I think you might be right. They've tried several things that have failed and the ready to latch onto anything that might work.

Now in our local situation things have not improved. There was a case in Whiteside County next door announce on Sunday. Rumors around town are that there are several others being tested.
Then we find today there are four people in isolation at the hospital, not confirmed. Another about 10-under isolation and 54 have been tested.
This isn't Lee County Illinois which is rural but not that far from Chicago. Guess this blows my idea of us being fairly isolated out of the water.

Posted by: Some rat in the swamp at March 19, 2020 12:51 AM (2ygtH)



I have about four minutes total, of Rotary Wing airtime logged.

It involved Jungle Penetrator, a raging, flooded creek just North of Leon Valley, TX, and a boat lost in trying to retrieve a Volunteer Fireman, stranded in a tree in the creek, after successfully rescuing a near-drowned driver who mistook her car for a submarine.

I got a County Award (the Hildago), for my efforts, but not a dime towards replacing the boat or the motor.

Was OK, till the fireman on board, who I maneuvered out to that tree, tried to have his buddy "step aboard" the boat, instead of just handing him the line, tying on, and letting us pull him back to shore.

Oh well. Lesson learned.

And four minutes of air-time beneath a Tx Guard Huey.

On that day, my mighty dick and balls would've not only crushed such an attempt, but turned out a deep friend candiru as a delicacy.

I took a 12 ft. boat with a 15hp Evinrude, and two firemen aboard, out into a creek flooded twenty feet above crest. Water was moving... swiftly.

If they had just handed the line to the guy in the tree. But, no.

Canidru had no chance though. None.

Bernie's a fraud, always has been. Sanders sold out for a lake house last election--cheap date, really. His purpose is to keep stupid left-wing children in line to support the Democrat left-wing after his alleged revolution fails. The Democrat Party treats younger voters like blacks, with the assumption they are stupid and ignorant. The results tend to prove them right.

You wanna catch a case of Wuhan Flu?

Take yourself to some place such as a Dr.s Office or Hospibubble with 100s of sick futhermuckers, all infected with Wuhan Flu.

Even the drive thrus are spreading the infection.

It gets on the sleeves of the "sample swabbers".

And then onto the face of the driver of the next car in line.

I'm not getting onto the cart.

Wherever or however it appears.

You know, if one buys into the notion that one has to ration life-saving treatment like transplants, why not simply do it on a lottery basis: "We can do 50 heart transplants this year, and we have 95 people who need it. Put 95 tickets in the big jar, and the first 50 we draw out get it."

At least, if you lost out, it would just be bad luck, instead of being denied because of of who or what you are.

Yes this is one of the absolute basics of retirement planning.

The closer to retirement the more money should be out of the stock market and into mutual funds and bonds. For the majority of people, that extra few percent you project to get out of the stock market isn't worth the risk of wiping out a chunk of your savings right before you need it.

There was a documentary on the Smithsonian Channel about the Spanish Flu pandemic I watched over a month ago.

Libtards are pissing and moaning about rayciss nomenclature for the current pandemic, but according to the doc, the reason it was called the Spanish Flu was that Spain, wisely staying neutral from the Great War, did not have to initiate propaganda and cover up the pandemic in 1918, and almost all truthful coverage at the time came from Spanish newspapers.

959 The obvious targets were small businesses When this proves to be a hoax, remember.
-

But last I checked, leftists like restaurants and bars and coffeeshops and little shops selling organic T-shirts or whatever the hell they sell as much as anybody.

You misunderstand Democrats value of individuals and groups. Look no farther than the cities they've exclusively controlled for literally 50-100 years. They couldn't care less about the black residents except for votes. Look at Hollywood. They couldn't care less about women unless it's time to (ahem) "help" them break into the industry.

I suspect that the Democrats want small businesses to fail, frankly. Unemployed people who just endured the trauma of losing everything they worked for are probably very susceptible to promises of extended free money benefits.

963 Good Morning Morons today is Thursday, March 19, 2020. On this date in 1943 Frank Nitti, the Chicago Outfit Boss after Al Capone, committed suicide at the Chicago Central rail yard. The 1987 movie had him trying to kill Eliot Ness and then falling off the top of a skyscraper. That was poetic license at best. He killed himself by firing a 32 cal revolver into his head. But despite all the inaccuracies I liked that movie.

It seems that government no longer cares to uphold the real laws or even the most basic functions of even a primitive government yet expects all honest people to accept with a smile abuses and infringements on even the most basic rights.

Yesterday I read that Oak Park, Il, a suburb as in right next to Chicago, put in a shelter in place. I went to their site to see what that meant....

"Under Oak Park's shelter in place, businesses that provide essential services will be able to remain open including grocery stores, banks, convenience stores, pharmacies, restaurants for delivery and pick up only, laundromats, skilled trades essential to maintaining the safety and sanitation of residences, hardware stores, medical service providers, first responders, transportation providers, government activities and essential social service providers and shelters, according to the news release."

So other then the restaurants can only do delivery and pickup, how is any of this "shelter in place"

Besides with so much beach front, most visitors just don't get that close to each other. Only seen that on the Clearwater beach.

Posted by: Bruce at March 19, 2020 06:07 AM (vd8XM)

1045 has anyone made a compelling case about why this would be necessary in the current situation

I think there is a broad spectrum of reasons.

As our culture swings away from using structured language and traditional applications of logic and reason to communicate and navigate about life, and have replaced it with emotion triggering language and lizard brained reactions, there is a strong bifurcation in how a mass of people will perceive and respond to changes.

There are plenty of sociological terms that attempt to model these differences. Sun People vs Ice People or the evolutionary formula or r/K strategy, where, broadly speaking, r/Sun people are more akin to rabbits and K/Ice people are more like wolves.

The former has little invested in themselves and their offspring, their plans are for the moment and there is no survival risk in failing to plan.

The K strategists have to account for winter, most be able to deal with abstract ideas, and invest much more in a longer term approach to much of life.

The Elite exploit r Strategists since these Sun people have no memory of the past and are not conditioned to think in the future. So when they triggered the panic emotions, the r Strategists started freaking out, had no plan of action so defaulted on what others were doing or acted as if a hurricane were approaching land since that is their only mental model of what to do when in a panic mode.

So they bought lots of bottled water and white things (e.g. eggs, wheat, rice, milk, paper products, etc.) because people who can't process abstract ideas or plan impulsively do whatever the immediate influences tell them to do.

Then they heard that K Strategists had guns, because the Enemedia wanted to trigger the emotions of fear and distrust against their red-hatted neighbors. So while many have accepted the narrative and are distrustful and contemptuous of their neighbors, others recognized that they had no real quarrel with their gun owning neighbors and since "guns" is the trigger, and with news of government abandoning the most basic policing and law enforcement, are now panicked into buying guns.

And having both an angry(K) and panicked (r) population with guns, who have identified their government as the stimulous for all this chaos, discord and literal threat to life, limb and property, the survival skills of the politicians kick in.

They were arrogant enough to think they could manage the panic and could use the chaos to usher in a Bolshevick revolution, Cloward/Piven the economy and cement in to place the Deep State for eternal rule, but they lost control rather quickly and have created Frankenstein's Monster.

And now they are terrified.

So certain people coughed up as much as $150k to reserve room on a private jet to fly them out of the prison-states. Ironically people want to flee London and escape to the paradise that is New Delhi.

All this means is that it will take more than $150k to merely reserve room on a jet - it will take something to adjust the attitudes of those who decide who can enter.

why do people in PA tolerate a state monopoly on the sale of a product?

Posted by: DB- just DB. at March 19, 2020 06:16 AM (iTXRQ)

Many East Coast states have very weird liquor laws. To explain why would be to go into long diatribes about history, culture, and religion. Sure that alone won't specifically explain why the state runs it, but that is the way it goes.

PA has always had very weird liquor laws. They are not alone on the East Coast in this but they do hold their own. It wasn't long ago that you couldn't buy beer at a super market. You had to buy beer in cases, sold warm, from a beer only retailer. They have changed that in the last five or so years but it was not long ago.

A funny thing about PA is they do give you the right to buy beer and wine for take home at a bar or restaurant. And the place can not charge you extra. If you were at a bar, you could ask for a six pack to go and you would get it. You don't see that everywhere either.

I heard a tidbit once that PA state liqour stores required employees that sold you the booze to wear a tie. My recollection is that they did all wear ties but I can't find that rule online. It might be a myth or unwritten rule but it used be well known.

PA is not the only state that owns the liquor business. Virginia has their ABC and it is very powerful. The VABC can decide who gets a liquor license, runs raids on old timey bootleggers, and has its own armed agents. In fact, a Republican won the governorship there with his main plank being to privatize the ABC. He won the election but didn't get his main proposal passed.

You ask why people would allow state control of liquor stores? Well the reason is the state does pretty well off of them. You don't even have to advertise much, people just come in on their own free will and ask for the stuff. People have tried to privatize liquor sales in many states and they ran up against, well, the state.

And it is not just the East Coast. Hell, you have a lot dry counties in the South and West. And Oklahoma until recently only allowed 3.2 percent abv beer. We have been pretty crazy about liquor since at least prohibition.

1113 So the Bank of England's governor Andrew Bailey's plan to rescue the UK's economy from absolute ruin is to drop helicopter money on the public and to tell short sellers to "Just Stop".

Yeah, that will work - if the goal is to dramatically increase short selling.

In this highly cynical and amoral age, telling someone to stop doing something is a dog whistle alerting those to "stop" so that the well connected but too slow to act can get in on the act while there is still something left to plunder.

1162 1104 Its interesting to see how few cases Mexico has says they have.

Always have to keep this in mind.
I'm not accusing Mexico of deliberately understating the number of cases they have, they're not China or Iran after all."

I suspect - and time will tell, of course - that in Mexico we're going to see what happens when this is just treated as an ordinary flu, and not as the Great Plague. And I suspect that of course some will get sick, and some will die, but other than that life will go on as always. Mexico has an outlook about like the US did in the 19th century; people get sick, people die, that's sad, life for the rest goes on.

Yep had to go to the back of a Tractor store once to make sure I was getting the right gun safe. There was literally almost nothing back there. I told the manager that it was pretty bare back there and she said yep, everything they get goes right out on the floor as soon as it comes in. They don't keep any stock back there at all.

You can thank just in time (JIT) inventorying for that. Wal mart pioneered that concept.

Amazon had the "good stuff" in stock yesterday morning (I didn't buy any; I've got enough for at least a month, not due to hoarding, but due to normally buying it when it's on sale). By afternoon they were down to the institutional stuff that could be repurposed as consumables for a belt sander (toilet paper that has an average review level of 1 star = not a good sign).
