In 25 years we will look back at the "pandemic of 2020" and recall that this was the way NOT to run a pandemic. This is crazy. The politicians are running the show for the most part, and they are competing with each other to see who can do the best job of covering their ass, and close the most businesses. In Utah they have closed the schools and all restaurants. Everything else to follow. Most stores are picked clean.
With the LIBTARDS itching to drag the booming TRUMP economy down thinking real Americans with even 'minute reasoning skills will not notice that they are the ones forcing Donnys hand at pushing this fake pandemic . Any fake pandemic for votes should be on signs in the blue states.

THIS IS FLU SEASON and some people die from it...LAST YEARS flu season WITHOUT a FAKE PANDEMIC HOAX..........34,000 people died in the US in 2019 from the REGULAR FLU.

CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018–2019 influenza season.

Not that this should surprise anyone, but there is a run on guns and ammo. I'm all set and have maintained a supply from when Barry tried to disarm law abiding folks.

From another site ... they were serious and didn’t see the irony of their post.

Remember...
If you are over reacting, you've got it right.
No body knows yet was is to come.

Since everyone is now holed up in their socially distanced home, now might be a good time to go to your favorite e book store and download a digital copy of the 3 book series by William R. Forstchen beginning with the title "One Second After". HInt (not a spioler): TP isn't what is in greatest demand in a crisis.
I'm going to start the third book in the series, "The Last Day" very soon.

I was considering truck shopping this spring. But I see the manufacturers have all ready started cutting back production. So I'm going to wait till late summer or fall hoping the prices will really be down and the dealers will be ready to have a fire sale. And hoping the production cut backs don't work against me.

Elected to take my GF sister to BDL airport this afternoon, not that is was thrilled about it, but (you know). In the past 20+yrs I have been on many flights to and from this airport.
Although I thought check-in would smooth, it was like going to a private airport....
Garage parking- No line grab a ticket , many first floor spots directly across from terminal.
Ticketing- No lines at at any carrier. Checked bag- attendants were pleasant and I think they were happy to see someone.
Security- No line at any of the the four check-points.
Overall, anyone you walked by was giving a wide berth and the atmosphere was calm considering the current situation. The ticket was $98 NS to Orlando and was told the plane was half full.

Florida - All bars are closed and the restaurants are limited to 50% capacity inside with patrons separated by 6 feet. Carry out is encouraged but a lot of restaurants closed down. Spring break is in full swing but groups are restricted to no more than 10, Bike week was last week and all of the vendors permits were pulled a couple of days before the end of the event. Shelves in grocery stores are empty. Meat departments are closed. Hospitals are screening everyone in tents outside and are scrambling for bed space.

My wife went to the store today for last minute stocking up. No issues, everyone was calm. The only thing they didn't have was paper products. We live in rural Kansas, so the worst of this will come much later.

The FDA has stated that there are no food shortages. I suspect that the shortages seen locally are being caused by panicked shoppers and that once the shelves of people at home are full we will once again see store shelves refill and see fewer people shopping for a time becasue there will be no need since they have already stocked up.

A positive development is the apparent discovery that a very old drug, developed by Germany during the 1930s used to treat Malaria appears to be an effective treatment for COVID19. The holdup of it's use in this country will be due to liability fears becasue the FDA has not approved it for COVID19 use. If the Trump administration can find a way to counter liability concerns for physicians we may see it used to treat the disease rather quickly and possibly even as a prophylactic.
IF it turns out that this med works and gets fast tracked to approval for use lives could be saved and the effects of the pandemic on our economy blunted to some extent.

I sure hope the drug works out because we could use some good news.

And that's not forget the President is sending out $1200. per person to help everyone out of work. And that's fine. But I know a lot of welfare leechs locally here that if their handed $1200. it'll go for booze cigarettes' dope and Lotto tickets. And when everything like housing and food and utilities are all free its play money. A good and bad decision on the governments part. Not everyone needs it. But a lot could use it. And of course we'll need to claim it as income next year.

It ends up being stimulus money and Donny has to go along with it because the Libtards who advertise FREE EVERY PHUKING THING, say they want it and it is an election year. The sheep in America , and who knows just how many hundred million of those there are by now, love to graze on free schit and let the Libtards and the Libtard owned media tell them when to take a dump. Sad and actually more scary than a FAKE pandemic.

CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2018–2019 season included an estimated 35.5 million people getting sick with influenza, 16.5 million people going to a health care provider for their illness, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths from influenza

This whole thing just feels so weird to me. It has set a precedence now for everything to be a government problem.
And now everyone will depend on the Government to save us. The power that our federal and state governments now have is just plain scary. I do understand they should help businesses that were forced to shut down because of their emergency declarations. I am certainly not down playing the risk to the elderly, but it seems even the elderly (in my area) are not worrying about it. Our local media is now hinting about a shelter in place. In Minnesota we now have 89 confirmed cases, 4 of those are in the hospital, no deaths as of now. I talked to a trucker friend and he said their company has stopped trucks from going to the east coast because the states in there great wisdom closed all rest areas. He said they want and need the freight but don't want anything to do with the truckers that haul it. Truck drivers need rest areas. Does anyone know someone who has this invisible enemy?

Although COVID19 will take some lives and harm the US economy short term there may be a bright side to the situation. The globalists have long pushed a global economy and America has bought into it becasue of the lower prices products produced elsewhere can be purchased for. We have ignored the loss of higher paying jobs in the US and the loss of production capability. Now, to some extent the chickens ahve come home to roost and we are learning that dependence on other countries for our needs can backfire when there is a pandemic, or by extension of possibility, a war with a nation we have become dependent upon. In this case China manufacturers the vast majority of the drugs we buy in this country. Although American pharmaceutical companies do the research and discovery of such medications the manufacture of them is done in China to maintain the highest profit margins for big pharma while keeping drug prices at a level at which they can still be sold in the US. In some ways US consumers are subsidizing medications for the rest of the world because many of those same meds can be bought in other countries for less than they cost in the US. This is another form of globalism's wealth redistribution ideology at work. Wealth in America spend on drugs allows drug manufacturers to sell those same drugs to be sold in other nations with less wealth for lower prices than found in the US while big Pharma still makes huge profits. Personally, I'm not against big profits for anyone, I am, however, against unfair trading practices that allow two or markets to exist when they are not in competition with each other.
The Coronavirus pandemic has brought the above issues to light. China has threatened to withhold drugs manufactured there from the US fully illuminating the weakness of our dependence on foreign production of drugs and by extension, any strategic material or component. This situation underscores the correctness of President Trump's America first policies, including his border control policies.
It's possible that some of those previously inclined to land on the side of the left, condoning globalism, open borders and fighting nationalism may be persuaded to reconsider their positions now that their own lives are threatened. Nothing hits home for some until it becomes personal. Loss of income, becoming ill, loss of the lives of family members or friends, fear of becoming ill, loss of freedoms imposed by "social distancing" policies, upset of the norms of being able to eat in restaurants may affect the outlook of many previously disposed to support globalism and rail against President Trump.
For this to occur it will, of course, require the ability to reason and use critical thought on the part of those supporting globalist policies to come to the conclusion that the policies they have supported aren't in their best interest. Unfortunately the ability to use critical thought and reason instead of "feelings" and left wing ideology is in short supply, particularly among the younger generation, and there will be no changing the minds of older people such as Bernie Sanders who are long committed to socialism/communism. Those somewhere in between will be the ones most likely to change their point of view.

And don't forget that the US was supplying JAPAN with steel right up to the time they cowardly bombed Pearl Harbor into oblivion. The Libtarded Demschits always fail to learn from recent history.........
