I think we will bounce back rather quickly - companies will re-hire, folks will need stuff.

From the looks of things, Trump should be re-elected, his approval numbers are very good in spite of the media.

My wife did grocery shopping yesterday and commented that more and more items have purchase limits on them. Our area has been very lucky so far, but the behavior demonstrated recently by local 20-somethings, indicates we could have a problem. The young think social distancing is a joke and have no appreciation of the fact that 100 years ago in the last big pandemic the Spanish flu, there was no discrimination in age when people died.

This is why we have quantities of food staples put back in long-term storage, right..?

The popcorn I microwaved last saturday while watching netflix, is bulk samís club popcorn that I repacked into mylar-lined buckets with O2 absorbers back in 2012. The oatmeal I make some days at work is from #10 cans of commercially packed stuff bought from Honeyville Farms for $2 per can when they were on special several years ago. Probably 12-15 good breakfasts, that take nothing more than hot water (and ideally a little salt & sugar) to prepare, for around 15 cents per meal; and even packaged such that theyíll probably outlast me even with no refrigeration or special requirements..? Iíll take that deal any day.

Rice, pasta, beans, lentils, corn, wheat, tvp, dehydrated vegetables, etc, can all be had cheap in good times, and last a long time with zero maintenance if packaged well. But just like a savings account, we have to before the storm arrives.

I wonder how Melvin's preps are going? At the moment we are starting to whittle down the food that we have in our 2 freezers, just in case this whole thing goes sideways.

Yes, we're using the freezer stuff first although food in our area is not a problem yet. Nothing is in short supply. Ammunition is plentiful around here also. A lot of gun's being bought by first time buyer's. I'm of two minds about that.

I figure he's updating his list of long pig recipes and stocking up on BBQ sauce.

That's why I posted the Hannibal the Cannibal picture.

Nothing is in short supply here either at this moment, just not sure where we will be 3 months from now. I live in a small city, there was a run on ammo about 9 days ago here. Almost everything sold out. I've just finished my reloading for the next match season so it really didn't bother me.

Y'all are going to think I'm making this up, but swear to god it's the truth. One of the nearby high schools issued special "band masks" to people in the band so they can play their instruments while wearing a mask. One of our technicians graduated from that school a few years ago and forwarded me a picture one of the band members, the younger brother of a friend of his:





I forwarded the picture to a friend of mine who lives in a subsantially larger town an hour away, and he responded, "Yeah. Same thing happening here."

There's only going to be two kinds of kids in school after this year - those who are idiots, and those who realize that their teachers are.

Anyone catch the release from the CDC last weekend, where they openly state that of all the deaths counted as "Covid deaths", only 6% were from Covid alone? The other 94% were combinations of Covid and other "comorbitidy" things; most times multiple other things. You're 90 years old, have COPD and Covid; and die in a nursing home? Covid death. You have both kidney failure and are Covid-positive when you die? Listed as a Covid death. Not only do 94% of "Covid" deaths have at least one other contributing cause, but they have an average of 2.6 additional contributing causes apiece.

This is really not new info; I saw an April youtube video of an NIH official where she specifically and without hesitation used the same 6% number. So it's not new, it's just kept out of the limelight.

The knowledge & admission that Covid is the sole cause of death in only 6% of these cases, plus the facts that (using the CDC's own numbers) most were over 75 years old and almost 80% were over 65, and we shut down the entire country over it, is frustrating almost to the point of enraging.

The only place I've seen my dying wife smile all day in recent months is on a cruise ship, and this same CDC has arbitrarily decided to outlaw cruise ships while allowing Disney World, casinos, Universal Studios, airlines, etc, to operate. Scumbags.

The April video of Dr. Ngoze Evike of the NIH where she explains the definition of "a Covid death".

I love this one section, "...if you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live, and then you were also found to have Covid, that would be counted as a Covid death."

The video is less than a minute long, but hugely worth watching:

I'm sick with it ...... secondary illness as I'm sick of this bull****.
Yes technically I'm at risk on 3 counts but I don't give a ****. I only wear a mask where required and I can't obtain items anywhere else.
And I may have had it earlier this year before it was "named".
I'm just tired of seeing businesses struggle. And people financially ruined over this

And yes I know it can harm people in really bad health.

My ex fiance whom used to be on here as Sweet N Sassy has COPD fairly bad. Even though I'd like to invite her to go shooting. As I'm forced to drive to South West MO to shoot at the moment.
It'd be a death sentence for her if she got it. I guess she's a prisoner in her own home so to speak.

Yeah I know both statements sound on opposite sides of the debates but hell guys she knows how to quarantine herself being a former LPN.
And I know my limits also.

It's personal responsibility which seems in short supply in the general public anymore.

I know people are tired of this and some local LEO agencies are siding with the public up here against our 'lusters Potentate's (aka governor's) mask mandate.

the economy is ruined. They are unable to do anything but print more money which can't do anything but cause hyperinflation. My wife's home country is a complete mess. Nobody's working. She finally got her lpn license, is trying to go RN college full time and work full time, too. It'll never work. She's already into math that I can't remember waf. She's having to send so much money to her family that it's making her sick. when I help, she still works just as much, so I bought gold with that money instead. I should have been buying other supplies months ago. I expect food to be a real problem by spring. Wife's coach still has no problem cracking 2.0 seconds on a bill drill, using wussy loads in the pocket sig, (open wear) and 2.3 seconds from CCW. hands at sides start. Pretty good, considering very little practice except with the .22 unit and airsoft.
