    Trump's between a rock and a hard place. I do not agree with what he has done here, but if he wants a second term, he may be compelled by that desire and the practicalities it requires. Let us never lose sight of how filthy a game this is. If Ron Paul were now in the white house, he would be faced with the same dilemma. If he did his usual sticking to the pure principle, he would not see a second term because far too many Americans are far too corrupted to act and think with even a modicum of basic sense.

    Amash is a huge disappointment. Gutless weasel, so far as my limited knowledge would indicate. He talked a game and seems to have failed to walk a word of it, especially when the going got a little less than a cake walk. Boo hiss.

    There's been lots of hand-wringing about the national debt, not without basis so long as we play the game by Theire rules. Departing from the rules, I see two ways of paying the national debt down in minutes. The first method is the less viable method from the standpoint of anyone actually accepting it as doable. The mint can mint coins in any denomination it chooses. Mint $10 billion coins and distribute to all creditors. Done. The better method, the one that would provide long-term economic stability in financial terms, would be to peg every dollar in circulation to the US gold store. It doesn't matter how many dollars are outstanding in the global economy and it doesn't matter how much gold. You peg that number of dollars to that amount of gold and that number of dollars never grows. That would de-ball the Fed in a moment and in perpetuity so long as we stuck to the arrangement. It would stabilize the economy and keep the spendthrifts on very short leashes. Neither will happen, but it's nice to think on such things.

    My relatives in the Philippines can't even afford toilet paper. They regularly use their hand and water.{/quote] TMI. No, seriously. And with good reason: they'd fold and die like a cheap suit in about a week, and I'm being generous. Firstly, those not 4F would never make it through boot. See above for my assessment of their potential.

    I see Thomas and I are of a similar mind - this "crisis" has a stink on it, the stink of expanding tyranny. Yesterday on the electronic highway signs in WV it was written "Stay at home order, essential travel only. wv.gov" or some such. Well I was on the road and my only response was "screw you, asshole." I don't care how one slices this pie, it is cancer and the average man is toeing the line with relief... and knocking knees. Humans.

    This whole "crisis" has a stink about it. To wit, the structure of the Hegelian dialectic is all over this. That is not to say that it was architected as such from the get-go, but rather that in the spirit of Rahm Emmanuel, a good crisis is not being left to go to waste. It's what Theye do; you can set your clocks by Themme. Given this, my thoughts wander to wondering to what chicanery Theye will resort. I think we have a partial answer with this "stimulus" package. Anyone old enough might recall the early 1980s when the fedgov shifted from speaking in terms of budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars, to billions. We have now made the transition into trillions, representing sums around which few men can wrap their minds. Perhaps this is the trick to be hidden in the fog of the crisis. It is certainly enough, but could there be more? Time will tell. On the cheaper side, there are the cute little "extras" Pelosi and her cadre tried to slip into the stimulus bill that has nothing to do with the issue of the purported crisis, further and unabashedly exposing themselves as the lowlives they are. One would like to think that this alone would end the Democrat party, but this is AmeriKa, so... The one safe assumption one can make in such circumstances is that someone is going to get cute. It never fails.

    OK, let me get this straight - brack students demanding fried chicken... They make idiot stereotypes of themselves. Were this something new, there might be some fleeting entertainment value. As it is, they're just painfully boring to anyone with an IQ. I must still protest this "n-word" nonsense. The word is N I G G G G E R. When speaking about it, the word should be used. This is the adult way. The infant way, AKA "woke", uses "n-word" like the candy-ass weaklings that they are. I find this endlessly annoying. Perhaps Covid-19 will clean the gene pool... Nah, we could not be so fortunate.

    Um, no. The fed is by no means doomed to fail. I would love to see it fail, but the fact is that it can go on like this indefinitely, so long as certain conditions hold. That's the beauty of the system as it is architected. So long as purchasing power remains above a threshold and the rate of expansion of the money supply remains below a certain threshold, this system can go on indefinitely. It matters no whit whether a loaf of bread costs $800, so long as one's income is commensurately high. So long as the rate of inflation occurs at or below some value, it can go on forever without immediate harm to anything, except for cash savings, which will naturally lose relative value because savings accounts return shit for interest. I'm not defending the system. I do, in fact, resolutely condemn it. But this system can go on forever so long as it is managed properly. The real danger is that inept or malicious "management" could destroy the economy in a matter of weeks or perhaps even less. I do not trust those bastards to the door.

    Until a few days ago, WV was the only state without reports of Covid-19. The stores have been well-stocked and you don't see too many people waltzing out the doors of the Southridge Walmart with 528 rolls of toilet paper. But the Stupid finally hit, even here. A couple days ago, our illustrious governor Jim Justice, mandated that every restaurant close its dining facilities, that they remain open for take-out orders only. I walked into Chik-Fil-A and had to eat my lunch in the car. Let's hear if for the Stupid! Hip hip... Oh never mind. The governor's a donk. On the lighter side, we have a good year's worth of edibles in the house. Oh, and talking to mom few days ago, the ShopRite in Carteret NJ was sold out to the bare walls. It is a pretty large venue, so to have every shred of merchandise edible in the place sold is really quite something. Ma's 87, so I am a mite worried for her situation. My friend Marshall told me that NJ is become mostly a ghost town with little to nothing available in stores in his area, Howell Twp. That's a first for that area, at least in living memory.

    Humanity is deep in the toilet. The mental landscape is wildly contaminated. I have no answers, save to say that none of this matters, sad as it may be to witness. That said, it should prove entertaining to discover the upshot of all this theater. Whatever it is, I feel confident in my suspicions that it will involve Themme arrogating more power and control to themselves, at our expense of course. In what ways will Theye hem us in further?

    Not quite zeroed on what your issue is. At this point, erring on the side of caution may be the best bet. OTOH, this all has a feel about it of manipulation, so who can say what is the right thing? If media says X, I am tempted to believe that the truth is not-X, but they are so terribly unworthy of trust, it becomes neralyimpossible to know how to assess what they report, at least for me. For me, the bottom line is this: we are so deeply in trouble that nobody ourside of our personal as well-known circles should be trusted. I have less than zero trust in anything connected to Themme. "Government", media of all stripes, and certain corporate entities that to my eyes appear to be indistinguishable from "the state" are leading us down the slaughterhouse chute... or at least that is how it feels to me at times.

    You kidding? This is one of the few good things to come out of it. If it lasts the year, which is unlikely, parents will begin to see how much they don't need the meat grinder. I'd love to see thousands of schools shut their doors, preferably on a permanent basis.

    Spreading worldwide was a no-brainer. That is what these bugs do in the age of jet travel. How anyone could not twig to this is beyond me. I suppose it's the same general condition of self-willed somnambulism from which we were shaken, ever so briefly, on 9/11. Prosperity is a great thing, but it is also a trap and we as a people in America have failed most shamefully by falling into it. To my estimation, we are not as bad as we were on 9/10, but we remain woefully short in terms of attitude required of a free people, which is why we are not a free people. We're a train wreck.

    Thus far it strongly appears that we have been told more lies than truth about Covid-19. The Chinese have been lying through their teeth about it and the media have been fanning the flames of fear with what seems to me to be the objective of inciting something closing on panic. I have watched the lefties carefully and it appears to me that they are hot to see this thing blow up and kill a few millions of Americans, all with the apparent goal of putting Trump out of office. They think they are clever, but when you listen carefully to what they say, as well as how they say it (intonation, for example), and even body language in some cases, their ham-fisted clumsiness shows, not to mention their singular viciousness that they are incapable of hiding. Being demented, I of course had to figure what the bioweapon engineers' ideal bug would be like when I was in my 20s. High lethality is important, but every bit as important would be a long latency period, as well as high contagion during latency. Immuno-suppression and rapid onset to death are certainly nice to have. The bullshit surrounding this virus seems to be thick. There were reports of latencies up to 24 days, which if true, would suggest a weapon. I'm no expert but I cannot recall any viral agents that incubate anywhere nearly that long. The numbers the Chinese were releasing early on suggested a lethality over 30%, which also suggests a weapon, as does the claim that it is hightly contagious during incubation. Now we are hearing that children are not prone to it, that the elderly are, yet are recovering fully in the vast number of cases. None of that is being played much in media, leaving people to run to Walmart for 300 rolls of toilet paper.

    I will laugh my sardonic ass off if, as we are pulling out our last people, Taliban comes roaring in, weapons spewing hot lead in every direction... "government" employees are beheaded, drawn and quartered, defiled in all manner of ways, and so on. Note "sardonic", because in truth it will not be funny in the least, especially to the families of all those who were pointlessly killed, not to mention those who have been pointlessly maimed in manifold and horrible ways. Of Trump's plan to get us the hell out, I am approve. Of the previous administrations who put us there, I would see everyone involved on the ends of ropes. Verily, seriously, and sincerely I wonder whether we will ever stop being stupid like this. We, and here I speak as a statistical gestalt, get punked over and over again with bullshit fear mongering. This must have Themme rolling in the aisles, torn between convulsive laughter and bottomless disbelief at how despicably gullible and corrupt we are. I know I've written this before, but I feel I need to repeat it: I do at times wish I were one of Themme just so I could feel I was on the side of the puppeteers, rather than the dumbasses in the audience who think the marionettes are real. Humans.
