Kurt Schlichter: They Can't Stop Us From Reopening the Country

John Ekdahl has been on a helluva tear on Twitter.

He wonders why it is that the New York-based media is scolding Floridians for visiting the beaches in small numbers, but yet all of New York City's parks remain open.

He wonders why people are being told they can't drive but New York City's subway system remains open, each car a contained petri dish. (And note -- they only gave out the order to wear a mask on the subway a few days ago!)

And I'll point this one out: The same people saying that protests are non-essential are the same people who said it would violate the Constitution to quarantine people from the New York City area to the New York City area.

Andrew Cuomo, hero of the fascist lockdown lobby, threatened to provoke a Constitutional crisis if Trump sought to limit New Yorkers' holy right to export the plague to other states.

Why is it the Ruling Class is busy demanding lockdowns for others while accepting no restrictions at all for themselves?

I guess the question answers itself: Because that's the entire point of the Ruling Class.


Kurt Schlichter's had enough, too.


Were going to come out of this nightmare whether the Democratic politicians like it or not. The pandemic is subsiding, so America is done with this lockdown nonsense, and the inevitable re-opening is coming. It will start out slow, then get faster, then get very, very fast, and then get finished. That's how these things happen. But it won't happen without #resistance.

The lib establishment and its media gerbils clearly think it's in their interest to have the Bat Gobbler flu crisis continue indefinitely. They think it hurts Trump, plus they really love wielding power over you. Just look into the dead doll eyes of Governor Karen (D-Minncounsinigan) and you can see that forcing big box stores to tape off the seed section gives her a kind of erotic pleasure. It's kind of creepy.

But people aren't having any more of this Schiff. We're done. We could deal with it when it looked like a commonsense thing to do, but now its just getting stupid. Things are getting better and they are doubling down on the social distance Stasi act. You got police departments tweeting that protest isnt essential, but apparently being petty fascists is.

Over it!

We've seen the protests being, and were going to see more of them, but we're also seeing silent rebellions. After weeks of disconcerting emptiness, the barren freeways of Los Angeles are suddenly filling up again with people who are voting with their feet and venturing back outside. While this paralysis may be a funfest for loser government workers, journalisandanistas, and other nonessential dorks who, for some reason, are still getting paychecks, 'a disaster for everybody else and we are about done. We will no longer be the collateral damage of their power tripping.

...


Hey, the great Chinese coronavirus panic was fun while it lasted, but it's done. The curve has been flattened. The numbers are dropping. All good things come to an end, and so must this.

You want to end the lockdowns immediately?

Ban the delivery of prepared food to houses.

Yeah, I know that itself is anti-liberty, but the jackasses who are sitting in their mansions saying "I don't see what the big deal is" can only say that because they're getting restaurant meals delivered.

Put an end to that -- "It's a vector of virus spreading!" -- and these same assholes hectoring everyone else about social distancing will be organizing raids on Nobu within 12 hours.

Update: The hostile city demanding that the rest of the country observe more draconian deprivations than they're willing to observe themselves -- despite being the national hotspot for the disease -- refused to cancel the June Gay Pride Parade until two hours ago.

I have spoken to a ton of people on this and it looks to me like there are two groups. There is some cross-pollination, but relatively little.

Those who can work from home are fine with this. It doesn't much matter to them and they're perfectly happy to go along and get along.

Those who cannot work from home are *not* fine with this. It's destroying them and they want it over yesterday.

That is what the divide looks like to me: those with office jobs who can remotely, and those who have to actually go to work.

I can work from home, and have been for weeks. I want this done now because I want to get back into the office where I'm more productive.

But, yeah, the divide makes a lot of sense. I mean, it's not like this is a real hardship on me. Paychecks are still coming in. We're getting groceries delivered instead of going to the store for them.

Other than the new house, life is pretty much calm. I could imagine doing this for a while longer. But dammit, I do work better in the office.

49 I can work from home and have been able to do that for some time. But the field techs at the company aren't going into residences to fix problems and installs are complicated.

I was okay with a temporary shut down but we are way past that. Inslee will keep things shut down forever unfortunately.

==========

I want my constitutional amendment for bankrupt states.

1) A state that is declared bankrupt is no longer a state but a territory with a military governor to be appointed by the president.
2) All elected officials from the former state in question, and all appointed employees of the state, who have been in office at any point in the last twenty years, are forbidden from holding government office for the rest of their lives.
3) The territory shall not reclaim its state status until it passes a new constitution that forbids deficit spending and it pays back 50% of its debt to the federal government in gold.

Zach's mother said he had mild symptoms, but his heart started failing.




How the hell can they claim it was likely? He tested negative but they are still going to claim it was Flu Manchu. I don't mean to make light of the kid's death but are they going to claim that everyone who dies is because of Flu Manchu?

The sheer amount of damage to public education, pro-China industry, and the concept of dense cities would have me thinking that Trump himself unleashed this virus. But he's simply not that cold-hearted.

Anyways, the governors overtly and arrogantly "punishing" protest are going to make violent revolution inevitable. It won't take more than a few enraged citizens firing the first shots before rivers of blood start to flow.

No Parking signs, and more importantly, NO CARS anywhere. Are you going to decide you've had enough, ignore the No Parking signs and risk your car getting towed? No, you're going to do just as I am, drive home like good little boys & girls and bitch about it in the comments section.

We have had two cases: one a NY visitor and the other a local who went on an international cruise. Our tourism season will be decimated, but that's what the vocal locals want. The NY case gave them lots of ammunition. The vocal ones are mainly retired, newly relocated w plenty of money. Service industry local folks screwed.

94 Those who can work from home are fine with this.

I know you had caveats in your statement...

I can work from home. I prefer to work from home. I am generally anti-social and the lockdown has not significantly inconvenienced me.

That being said, I am NOT okay with this. While I have no desire to go to a bar, the fact that I cannot pisses me off. The fact that some of the stores I visit are across the border in Travis county, and therefore require a mask, pisses me off. The fact that citizens are being harmed by their own governments pisses me off.

I spent six years on a submarine. I slept within 100 feet of an operating nuclear reactor, often while submerged under hundreds of feet of water and hundreds of miles of land while earning 27 cents per hour. And I didn't do it so that my fellow citizens could be imprisoned in their own homes by a throng of feckless cowards and Karens.

100 We now have more than enough data on who, where and how.

We know who is most likely to die, what zip code they live in and how they're most likely to get it.

Keeping the house arrest for everyone make as much sense as executing every third person.

As was pointed out--we're trading deaths, not reducing them. For every elderly and already sickly saved from Corona, there is now an equal or greater number of young and healthy who will succumb to suicide, alcoholism and drug abuse from despair and poverty.

We have absolute proof of that--not models: Every tic in the unemployment rate corresponds to another tic up in hopelessness deaths.

Of course, I'm with everyone else who would like to see almost all politician hung, however...

When states run out of money, they have one option - raise cash though bonds.

They don't give a shit if they have to put the interest rate up to 85% to get people to buy the and send the cash in immediately, because they're not going to be in office when the bonds get paid back.

All we can do is hope the fed and states come to an arrangement that doesn't stick it too far up our collective ass.

123 OT, but coronavirus related -

Does anyone here have a kid who was a dependent last year, but not this year? My daughter graduated college last year and has been working full-time, so no longer a dependent. But she didn't get the $1200 like her older siblings did. The thing is, she could really use it because she's been furloughed from her job. I have no idea how to help her fix this.

I have been haunting the IRS site to see if they address this, but they don't. Searching on the 'net hasn't helped either.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. I haven't filed our 2019 taxes yet although I have them ready to go. I am not claiming her as a dependent in 2019 even though I could because I am hoping this will help her get the money, but if it doesn't, I'd like that dependent status back.

150 >>I want my constitutional amendment for bankrupt states.

1) A state that is declared bankrupt is no longer a state but a territory with a military governor to be appointed by the president.
2) All elected officials from the former state in question, and all appointed employees of the state, who have been in office at any point in the last twenty years, are forbidden from holding government office for the rest of their lives.
3) The territory shall not reclaim its state status until it passes a new constitution that forbids deficit spending and it pays back 50% of its debt to the federal government in gold.

152 In WA state it is possible, barely, to go boating. However, fishing is against Inslee's mandate. You can be fined for throwing a line in teh water while being in a boat.
A friend's son and his wife live in the San Juan Islands in Puget Sound. They work on one island, live on another that has no ferry service.
Using their boat is essential for them.

But, they can't catch a fish for dinner.
And, at present, they are okay with that. It is maddening.

A day after Gov. J.B. Pritzker said he expects the coronavirus pandemic
will blow a $2.7 billion hole in this year's state budget and create an
even larger gap next year, a Wall Street credits ratings agency
downgraded Illinois' debt to one notch above junk status.

Fitch Ratings on Thursday downgraded the state's credit from BBB to
BBB-, a reflection of the havoc COVID-19 is wreaking on the state's
precarious finances.



Darn, Illinois was doing so great financially before Flu Manchu. It's Flu Manchu and not all of the people and businesses fleeing the state. I know that Jabba is angling for the Federal government to bail him out instead of reopening the state

216 I've done something which I hope will prove to be very very clever:

I just finished booking my Airbnb stay for an overseas trip in late June.

This (unnamed) location is, under normal circumstances, a very crowded and popular place to visit, and the Airbnbs are consequently very expensive and it's hard to get good ones, as they all fill up way way in advance.

But that's under normal circumstances.

Because this location is currently in a nation "under lockdown," all the Airbnbs are vacant and available. And in desperation, all the owners have dropped the prices substantially - I mean astronomically less, in some case 80%-85% discounts.

So, based on my studies of the statistical curve going down and my guess as to when the lockdown being lifted, I searched for places in late June, and found an OUTSTANDING Airbnb in a FANTASTIC location that under normal circumstances generally lists for $500/night. Current price? $70/night.

Boom -- I booked it for three weeks.

Best of all, this listing has a very lax cancellation policy, with a full refund all the way up to June 14 if you cancel. So it's basically risk-free -- if the lockdown remains in place, I can always just cancel with no loss to me, 100% refund.

My guess is that the lockdown will be lifted on June 1, and there will be a huge rush to get all the good Airbnbs, and the prices will skyrocket overnight. But -- too late bitchez! I already got the best place at an unbelievable price!

Let's hope it works out as planned!

217 As NYC Subway ridership has gone down, the MTA has cut the number of trains and shortened trains, which causes each train car to be just as crowded as normal, even though most people are not taking the Subway.

If they had kept their standard deployment and schedules, people would be social distancing with 3 to 4 people a car. But why run all of those Subway cars if nobody is going to ride them.

Oh, and then they run PSAs on TV telling people to social distance on the Subway. How are you supposed to do that with 100 people in a Subway car?

We have had two cases: one a NY visitor and the other a local who went on an international cruise. Our tourism season will be decimated, but that's what the vocal locals want. The NY case gave them lots of ammunition. The vocal ones are mainly retired, newly relocated w plenty of money. Service industry local folks screwed.

The AirBNB bait and switch scam was especially prevalent in foreign countries.

If there is that much of a difference, you can guarantee they will cancel your reservation and re-book it immediately for the 400% increase in price.

It takes a while for AirBNB to identify the scammers, and then purge the from the system. If everyone is doing it because of a massive market-wide price spike, there will be few if any repercussions.

Hence why it's probably better to keep disaster management as local as possible and as private as possible. That doesn't mean kick out federal or government involvement completely, just that the smallest entity should be dealing with things first. Like retirement accounts.

Just to be clear. It is the spot price that is negative. It is negative because there is no place to put such oil. This is oil out of the ground that needs to go somewhere. There is only so much temporary storage and it is all filled up.

This does not bode well for the future, but the spigot can basically be cut off.

People have bought the oil and the must take it. They cannot take it because there is no storage capacity.

the reserve is almost full - as best I can tell, capacity is estimated at 797 million barrels, currently estimated to hold 635 million barrels. (that may have increased) Leaving 160 million barrels of capacity to be filled, roughly speaking.

At current over production rates, we can aborb 16 days of excess capacity and then all of our storage is full, full stop.

The wells are going to have to shut in, even if it kills them. No other choices left.

Posted by: Mr. Peebles at April 20, 2020 02:30 PM (oVJmc)


When you buy the contracts you put up money to cover a drop in price, so that if you walk away the seller is unharmed. The seller does the same thing.

Something ain't right with what they did. They were giving 100% refunds to all trips cancelled by Covid-19 restrictions. You should complain and demand they refund you, saying it was out of your control.

Also, in the future, pay close attention to the cancellation policy for the listing. Try to find one that allows you to cancel with full refund all the way up to near when the trip begins.

There is simply no place left for the oil to go. It's easy to say "people who have storage" - but they're all full. No one in the world has any significant amount of unused storage.

Almost all of West Texas has got be be shut down and shut in for months. Any company that has any debt leverage at all, and every bank that backed those loans, is headed to bankruptcy.

This cycle usually takes 15 - 20 years. After the 1986 collapse, the Texas oilfields didn't start to come back until the 2000's.

447 Something ain't right with what they did. They were giving 100% refunds to all trips cancelled by Covid-19 restrictions. You should complain and demand they refund you, saying it was out of your control.

Also, in the future, pay close attention to the cancellation policy for the listing. Try to find one that allows you to cancel with full refund all the way up to near when the trip begins.
Posted by: zombie at April 20, 2020 02:37 PM (N9G0H)


We submitted the cancellation as Virus related, but they rejected it because we weren't traveling in March and didn't make the 48 hour cancellation.

They then said they would refund 1/2 of the money back, but only after the FULL AMOUNT was paid, we'd only get 1/2 back. Since we'd only paid the first 1/2 as the deposit, they're keeping 100% of that.

I've been round and round with the renter and even said we'd settle for 1/2 of the deposit back "for THEIR troubles," then went through the BBB to AirBNB corporate in San Franshitsco.

I've now gone through my bank to have them go after them as fraudulent.

449 I got a kick out of the Trump pressers a couple weeks ago when the press was asking if the US was going to cut oil production.

Trump seemed confused, like do they think he controls oil production in the US? Do they think this is socialism already? The question was just so stupid.

Trump had to explain supply and demand in a free market economy to the asshat reporters.

486 Just out of our weekly staff meeting (online conference call).

We were told to expect to be continuing to work from home through the end of May.

So if that is true --- first full day of work from home here in Michigan was 03/16/20 --- we will have been working from home for 11 straight weeks.

Makes me wonder if our management has been in touch with Michigan government and knows of any extension of the stay-at-home order through end of May.

I'd like to complain, but I know there are tens of millions of people in much worse situations than I. Those unemployed --- including many of my coworkers who were furloughed --- and those watching their small businesses go down the toilet.

526 The unmasking thing theoretically has the potential to ensnare lots more senior Obama figures, but the EO he did probably will deny any legal traction on that one.

I think full development of the L. Page text reference, and the FBI/DOJ briefing of the WH CoS, will be enough to lock down Bambi's involvement.

Though I wonder any more what the audience would be.

Country is far, far more dumbed down, emotional, tribal, and ignorant than even 10 years ago. Airheads who can listen to NPR and take the NYT seriously lack the intellectual capacity to connect 2 gigantic dots sitting in front of them.

Or how many taxes are included in a gallon of gas even though many states require the tax amount to be posted on the pump.

558 The price of producing gasoline normally go down when the price of the key component goes down. The fact is that some are paying a buck a gallon and some are paying over two bucks.

563 Did my own seat-of-pants zip code/case $# analysis for San Diego County yesterday (county has case data by zip code). Top zip codes were those along the border, a few in the "hood", plus a few dense hipsterish areas, and - oddly - 2 at the eastern fringe of the populated area, where true rural county begins.

The great majority of big sprawling suburban areas - low numbers.

Only 2,200ish positive test results to date, only 500ish hospitalizations, under 200 ICU, 71 deaths. In a county pushing 3.3 million (gah!) population.

567 Here's a semi-off topic story from long ago...

It was 1983. My father in law had ordered us to tool sucker rods for oil wells in one of our factories. We did it and were preparing to ship the first loads.

The other VP and I sat with him discussing the method of transporting the rods. We worked out the details and showed him how, with our limited shipping, it made sense just to outsource the trucking to others. My FIL wanted a shiny new semi. After a few hours, he finally agreed that our numbers made sense, that we should call some trucking companies and get quotes.

The next morning, the truck dealer delivered a new truck.

A couple years later, a family friend with an independent oil exploration company was at lunch talking about a new field he was opening. After that, my FIL talked about getting an oil drilling rig, which in the mid '80s was well over a million dollars. A short time later, he stopped talking about it. A few weeks after that, he had a heart attack and died.

I'm still looking for that rig I know he bought.
