  1. She seems…soft.

  2. She seems…soft…and veiny

  3. Another great song/video selection Pups

  4. You fuckers were pretty funny last night. Invoking Carin as my spirit animal I won’t cite any further specifics and allow you to wonder whether you were, in fact, funny or just average with your comment(s).

  5. Johnny Carson was a national treasure. I was either too young as a kid or too hip as a 20-something to enjoy his show while he was actively doing it. Comparing him to the current crop of late night hosts or Letterman back in the day is unfair. They are shite and he was in his own league.

  6. Sent Chrisp’s link about CDC knowing about Plaquenil since 2005 to a few friends.

    (with a red hot candy on it)

  8. Paula found B&M baked beans at Shaw’s Market yesterday in her travels. We had chicken and beans last night.

    There is a candy known as Boston Baked Beans that I used to get at the movie theater as a kid. It’s been years since I’ve had them and apparently they’re still made

    Mare, here is some news you can use https://tinyurl.com/urxpw93

    ——–

    He nailed it, I’ve been self-soothing with videos of kittens and puppies.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…I’m in my happy place, I’m in my happy place.

  10. I loved the Boston Baked Beans candy. Although, I’ve never met a candy I don’t like. I even liked that chicken one.

    Chick O Stick?
    Chick-o-Sticks are a honeycombed candy filled with peanut butter and rolled in toasted coconut. It was originally introduced as the Chicken Bones. The name changed to Chick-o-Sticks in 1955 because another company already owned the name.

    I went on Walmart’s Grocery App and ordered a couple of things for pick-up. I had to wait a day and a half to pick them up. They ran out of a few of my items but the system is easy to use and the “runners” who bring your bags out were really nice.

  11. Did you guys see where Ilhan whatever was praising Trump for his handling of the COVID19 outbreak?

  12. The small town we have our camp in has a wordpress blog where they announce stuff like town meetings, budget plans and the like. It puts out maybe 20-25 posts a year. They had a triple post last night announcing a delay in the town meeting date, closure of the community center and other town facilities for public access and a new effort to improve internet access for the town.

    The last one was of interest to us. Having crappy internet access was a drag for everyone until we got unlimited data plans for the phones a couple/few years ago. I’m guessing The Corona has suddenly converted a commuter town to a stay at home town and people are bullshit. The school and town office are probably wired for high speed cable but the rest of the town is outta luck. There are some areas in town where I get no phone signal. Unintended consequences of an emergency situation

  13. Well, I accidentally clicked the button on my FaceTime link on my computer and the camera facing me popped up and Hoo Boy, time for kittens and puppies again.

  14. I saw that Mare. My first thought when any Dem offers praise for Trump is “What’s the angle?”

  15. Trying to decide whether to work from home or go in to the office today. I guess I had better check the headlines for the latest lockdown news. Yesterday the state liquor store was open, but they take your order at the front door and only let you in to pay at the counter, one customer at a time.

  16. I saw that Mare. My first thought when any Dem offers praise for Trump is “What’s the angle?”

    ——-

    Exactly, Jimbro.

  17. 10/10 would smash.

  18. wakey wakey

    This gal has that “I’d lick a toliet for social media” look to her.

  19. So I’m back to the position that more reasonable measures could have been taken that wouldn’t have crashed the economy.

    And sure I’m a partisan hack but Trump is actually doing a good job. Impeachment was such a carnival show that I had almost forgotten that he’s pretty good in tough situations that aren’t food fights.

    He appears to be legitimately concerned and doing his best while also not losing his shit.

  20. Our out-of-gym workouts are killing me. lol.

    I only have myself to blame, because I’m largely responsible for them. Today i’ve created a third hellish workout for our group. People tried to fire me yesterday.

    Tuesday we did track workout – 100,200, 300, 400, 800, 400, 300, 200, 100 (as fast as possible each one).

    Yesterday we did hill sprints (25) with some kettlebell work between sets of five.

    Today we’re back to the track 2.5 mile running, 200 double unders, 150 burpees – broken up however you want (I thought it would be fun that way). I’m thinking of one burpee every 26 meters. lol.

    Tomorrow I have this very hilly road … for a run. It it really amazing. I showed my son yesterday.

    Mind you, we keep a 10 foot distance.

  21. HA! I just said to my husband, “the media are garbage people in this country.”

    He replied, “That’s an insult to garbage people.”

  22. The answer is yes. The data is bad. It’s a bit of catch 22 though. My understanding is that you need to act fast to slow things down and waiting for good data would lead to worse outcomes overall.

    Do you trust the data coming from China, Iraq, or Italy? I mean, obviously not. Are these separate countries measuring information the same way? Nope. I could go on and on.

  23. I will also note, that almost every time they march forth the young death to show us how this is going to kill us all if we don’t shelter in place – they’re lying. Oh … he had cancer a year ago, or respiratory issues, etc etc.

    Just because someone looks young and healthy, doesn’t mean they are.

    And I don’t say this to be flippant about those who are vulnerable. I say this just because it’s true. Protect the vulnerable. Let the rest of us keep the country going.

    When I run for president that will be my motto.

  24. GND and I were talking about this the other day. The WHO stating that the death rate was 3.4% basically kicked off the entire panic.

    The guy running the WHO is a Dr but also a politician.

    “Immediately after taking office on 1 July 2017 Dr Tedros outlined five key priorities for the Organization: universal health coverage; health emergencies; women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health; health impacts of climate and environmental change; and a transformed WHO.”

    He saw an opportunity and took it knowing the info was garbage.

  25. That NY Post article on the 20 year old who died is the smelly garbage that makes San Francisco dumpster smells seem lovely.

    Like Beansnsnsns said, read, keep reading, no, don’t stop, Oh, there it is the kid had leukemia.

    FU media.

  26. The guy running the WHO is a Dr but also a politician.
    “Immediately after taking office on 1 July 2017 Dr Tedros outlined five key priorities for the Organization: universal health coverage; health emergencies; women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health; health impacts of climate and environmental change; and a transformed WHO.”

    ———

    Every single time I pull back on my consipiracy theory craziness I read this stuff and think, “nope, people in power and those that want it are creepy, dirty and have a plan.”

  27. I think it’s difficult for normals (like us) to think that there are so many who are evil and want to run every aspect of your life and prosper from it.

    We don’t think that way. It’s hard to fathom (for us) that people do think that way.

    Well guess what? We are naive pawns.

    KITTEN TIME!

  28. She’s very pretty. Maybe a finalist at the end of the year. Doesn’t look too bright though. So, perfect.

  29. Thanks for the model gif, Pupster. Laughed at the America and “get comfortable” gifs.

  30. I don’t know who this dog is but I want to.

    I’m concerned about Leon’s well being

  37. Me too!

  38. Things are getting ugly here.

  39. But, seriously though – cream chowders are excellent. Clam or seafood chowders in general.

    It’s time you addressed this Leon.

  40. Marine mammals have been protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act since 1972, which has allowed many populations of seals, sea lions, whales and dolphins to grow. Because the worms reproduce inside marine mammals — and their rise occurred over the same time period as the mammals’ increase — this is the most plausible hypothesis, Wood said.

    Second look at whale oil?

    I don’t eat uncooked herring.

  41. It’s time you addressed this Leon.

    You’re not my real dad!

  42. Only the m&ms are even modestly appealing, and that’s because they are chocolate.

  43. I never liked Starburst or Skittles candy, regardless of color

  44. I’ve still got one crown, I ain’t touching sticky candy.

  45. For Leon

  46. I’m sure Willard Romney will take it as a sign that he needs to run 3rd party.

  47. Welp, got the money back in my account, so I have positive numbers again! Unfortunately I waited too long to go in for a replacement card and all branches are drive-thru only now, I’ll have to call and have one sent. It’s quick turnaround so I should be too inconvenienced.

    Gas in the tank, food in the pantry, not much of each but God willing enough. Expecting today we’ll likely know if we shut down for a couple of weeks like it seems the rest of Creation has. It’s madness, but honestly I could use the R&R given my illness.

  48. Glad to hear it, BroTim.

  49. Good new, BroTim!

  50. Sounds like a long overdue upturn, BroTim!!

  51. Won’t lie, I was sweating the next week and a half with that shortage. Still have the inconvenience of the card but that’s my fault. Besides, I do have some gift cards with funds left, so I’m not completely SOL.

    Sigh. If there was any time to start going back to church…but of course Archdiocese of Mobile is like everywhere else right now. And honestly, with this crap I’m being treated for I shouldn’t take chances anyhoo.

    I should come up with some Internet content creation gig on the Internet to help with bills. Because the traditional job hunt is probably toast for the Duration..

  52. Still have the inconvenience of the card but that’s my fault.

    Not entirely. Lobby’s closed because of Chinese Lung Rot Panic.

  53. Furnace wasn’t working.

    Fixt it though.

    I earned my keep toilet paper for the day.

  54. Have you taken down the fence so Moose can stop the duck invasion?

  55. “That fella over there may not look like much, but he’s a hard worker. Really worth his TP.”

  56. He may look dumb, but that’s just a disguise.

  57. I don’t know who the geniuses were at Big Toilet Paper but they know what they’re doing when it comes to creating toilet paper panic. Well done ass wiper execs, well done.

  58. The people who make TP have this shit down to a science. Literally.

    They know exactly how much America uses in any given season. They didn’t spawn the panic, that was the enemedia.

  59. The bag of red Starburst is the best.

  60. Just checked. Rick Wilson is 12 years older than me, if we ever chance to meet, is it a fair fight with a peer or am I pummeling an old man and should be ashamed of myself?

  61. The big grocery chains in the St. Louis area are Schnucks and Dierbergs. The latter is a little more fancy, a little more expensive, and a lot more selections comparable to say Trader Joes or Whole Paycheck.
    “My” store or the closest one, is a Schnucks. They are still bare bones but they did have some eggs (limit of 2), milk, and some bread, this morning. Very little meat, canned goods still wiped out.
    I had to go to a Dierbergs for coffee filters and salmon. Other than no TP/papertowels/wipes, they’ve been doing a good job in keeping things stocked. Canned goods are lowish but still available. Not as much variety in the meat department but I scored some chicken on sale (limit of 2 per part). Regular bread was scarce there but a St. Louis bakery is baking extra to help them out. Everyone looked like they were just getting what they needed. I saw no hoardy filled carts. Lots of my age and older.

    I came home happy.

  62. On Amazon Prime video now

    That looks awesome. Fried Green Tomatoes vibe to it, plus some of my favorite actors. Like the villian from Justified, Megs.

  63. Shouldn’t have closed them in the first place.

    Plus they warned them that offramps weren’t suitable for stopping. I can see bored cops waking up truckers on an offramp to tell them to move.

  64. Me too!

    God, you’re an ass, hahahahaha

  65. Rick Wilson better avoid flyover country. All of it.

  66. They advertised 10# tubes of hamburger for 1.99, unfortunately they had a limit of 5# now, and won’t give the price for the 10#. Small and silly, I know.

    Just glad I got some produce. Stocked up on green onions, cucumbers, and lettuce.

    Some tomatoes too, for the homemade bacon that’s done now.

    Oh, did I forget to mention the homemade bacon? Huh.

  67. These daily televised Cuomo press conferences make me think the guy on twitter is right.

    Cuomo is the candidate.

  68. They know exactly how much America uses in any given season.

    I liked the story about the guy who just got a paper company going, jimbro wasn’t it? Talk about right place/right time. American dream.

  69. Hmmm, Cuomo as the pres? I could see him running. Maybe VP?

  70. He’ll be the “unity candidate” after Biden succumbs to Arkancide.

  71. Ooo, just looked at my receipt, the gal at the seafood counter entered the wrong code for 2 pieces of salmon. I paid 4.99 for crab dip instead of 11-12 bucks for the fish.

  72. Huh, that was a toilet paper joke. It never occurred to me that anyone other than the media was inciting panic.

    My apologies if any of you work for big toilet paper.

  73. And here comes Trump to knock Cuomo off the air.

  74. Fortunately, there are still multiple makers of butt wipe. P&G is the biggest seller, but they can be boycotted easily.

  75. Trump is mastering the media, and they don’t like it much.

  76. Aldi’s Willow brand of butt wipe is actually a pretty good TP. And much cheaper than Big Butt Wipe.

  77. Hmm, maybe I should have stopped at the bakery for bread. the bakery at the store was closed up, and we were out, so I got some expensive Rotella stuff. Really good, but I usually don’t spend that much for sandwiches.

  78. Comparing him to the current crop of late night hosts

    I first read that as hate night hosts. I don’t think that’s a bad name for them.

  79. Comment by Hotspur on March 20, 2020 10:45 am
    He may look dumb, but that’s just a disguise.

    I played that song for Dad just last week – he had never heard it before. He laughed and laughed.

  80. From that Breitbart article:

    COVID-19 has often been described in medical and research sources as SARS-2.

    Chloroquine works by enabling the body’s cells better to absorb zinc, which is key in preventing viral RNA transcription – and disrupting the often fatal cytokine storm.

    This is the first that I have heard of this thing being referred to as SARS.

  81. SARS is a coronavirus, as was MERS

  82. so how long will the FDA and CDC drag their feet on the chloroquine and z-pack cure for COVID-19?

    Foreign Doctor on Tucker last night wasn’t sure why we weren’t using it.

  83. The libertarians are up in arms at suggestions that we expel Chinese students from the US, because apparently that’s the moral equivalent of rounding up Japanese Americans and moving them into internment camps.

  84. Have any of you smarties determined if my starting to drink Vodka with tonic (and fresh lime) will keep me safe?

  85. The libertarians are up in arms at suggestions that we expel Chinese students from the US, because apparently that’s the moral equivalent of rounding up Japanese Americans and moving them into internment camps.

    Fuck you. They’re lucky we’re letting them leave peacefully.

  86. Conspiracy theory: they know the Kung Flu isn’t that bad, but they are using it as a practice run for when the really nasty stuff comes, because they know that the Chinese have been experimenting with bioweapons.

  87. Another movie that looks fantastic

    Greyhound

    Hanks is doing great work with WW2 history.

  88. Conspiracy theory: they know the Kung Flu isn’t that bad, but they are using it as a practice run for when the really nasty stuff comes, because they know that the Chinese have been experimenting with bioweapons.

    This would imply an unprecedented level of cooperation between parties and agencies that have historically been cold if not hostile. I’d like to think it’s possible, but I’m not putting on my pyramid hat for this one.

  89. Conspiracy theory: they know the Kung Flu isn’t that bad

    Tell these types of people

    Tim Pool is good. Not very optimistic

  90. This would imply an unprecedented level of cooperation between parties and agencies that have historically been cold if not hostile. I’d like to think it’s possible, but I’m not putting on my pyramid hat for this one.

    The lizardroids are coordinating it from their base inside the hollow Earth.

  91. CoAlex, that is good news. SLS was one of the few things not shut down due to the virus, and they are about to get shut down anyway because NOLA is getting sicker and sicker.

  92. Cheerfully stolen:
    Everyone working from home right now tell us what your pet(s) are doing but refer to them as your “co-worker”.

  93. Gas was $1.51/gallon at Sam’s Club in Fort Worth, per hubs.

  94. The lizardroids are coordinating it from their base inside the hollow Earth.

    God, how I wish that were true. There’s something incredibly comforting about all this evil being attributable to an alien, physical enemy, as opposed to Satan and his human disciples.

  95. heh, I saw that one but it substituted kids for pets

  96. CoAlex, that is good news. SLS was one of the few things not shut down due to the virus, and they are about to get shut down anyway because NOLA is getting sicker and sicker.

    I kinda hope at this point that SpaceX is successful and that Boeing goes tits up and the SLS contract gets handed off to someone else in a reorganized manner. NASA and the Space Force can buy a couple dozen Falcon rockets for use moving people in the near future.

  97. “Foreign Doctor on Tucker last night wasn’t sure why we weren’t using it.”
    If we used that cheap and readily available drug to cure everybody, how can we destroy the economy and get rid of “Orangemanbad”?

    WHO, CDC, and FDA are staffed with anti-Trump holdovers…

  99. From a WSJ article about various companies shifting to production of urgently needed supplies:

    “The German government is considering redeploying unemployed workers such as waiters to harvest its fields, because border closures are blocking many seasonal workers from Eastern Europe, said Agriculture and Food Minister Julia Klöckner at a news conference Tuesday.”

    What do you think Carin? If the US decides to do that it needs a catchy name. How about Cropfit?

  100. WHO, CDC, and FDA are staffed with anti-Trump holdovers…

    I’m really trying not to be conspiratorial, but it’s really hard to do.

  101. hahahahaha, there isn’t a waiter out there that could work a farm job.

  102. Everyone working from home right now tell us what your pet(s) are doing but refer to them as your “co-worker”.

    My coworkers mostly irritate me every time I leave the office for the restroom or break room, but my office manager is a great guy, brings around cocktails every Friday at 4pm, and is super at mixing them just like I like ’em.

  103. I’d say only a small minority of waiters would be able to deal with a farm job

  104. you said it better than I did.

    But yours won’t get a negative reaction from Car in.

  105. It would fill my black-souled heart with joy to see Gen Z and Z+ working the fields instead of Messicans, Hondurans, and Guatamalans.

  106. True

    And that was what I was really going for in the first place!

  107. Carin’s not a waiter, don’t know why she’d take offense.

    She’s a Keno ticket seller. Totes diff.

  108. Stick with sunshine, adequate sleep and exercise

    Not the answer I was hoping for.

    Skanks don’t get the D from sunshine

  115. Skanks don’t get the D from sunshine

    Right, I was thinking of them getting their D in, uh, alternate ways.

  116. Also notice the press is leaving Feinstein off the list of dirty senators.

  117. LOL Trump socked it to some cunt at the press conference who tried that shit.

  118. Mare: Have any of you smarties determined if my starting to drink Vodka with tonic (and fresh lime) will keep me safe?
    Me: If you drink enough of it, long enough, you won’t care one way or the other.

  119. hahahahaha, there isn’t a waiter out there that could work a farm job.

    The same is true the opposite way around – there isn’t a farm worker out there that could work a restaurant job.

    People find and train for jobs they can do. And not all skills – natural or developed – are transferable.

    Dealing with people, and not pissing them off, is a skill. If you just dig all day, etc (farm) you really don’t have to worry about customer service since it’s not part of the job.

    I – of course- could farm.

  120. Also cheerfully stolen:
    Gotta say that the class of 2020 outdid themselves with Senior Skip Day this year.

  121. Erin’s friends all are up to no good now. No school. No job (all their jobs were the ones that have closed).

  122. The same is true the opposite way around – there isn’t a farm worker out there that could work a restaurant job.

    I’m sure there’s a Latin term for this argument technique like argumentum reversum

  123. This one?

    He really poured it to these assholes. Fun to watch.

  124. Feinstein is so dirty she considers licking airplane toilet seats amateur hour.

  125. Car in, put them to work planting beer trees.

  126. I’m about to give them all a “This is how you act in someone’s house” course. cripes.

    Why the hell are they all gathered up like that?

    SOCIAL DISTANCE, ZOOMERS!

  127. Oh, the lefties are really mad about Trump in that press conference.

    Me: He’s right.

  128. The same is true the opposite way around – there isn’t a farm worker out there that could work a restaurant job.

    this is not the level of negative I was striving for. I must redouble my efforts.

  129. I’ve been going to MJ’s Social Media Acceptance Camp. How am I doing?

  130. All this kowtowing to China by Bloomberg and the like has me nostalgic for the “robber barons” of days gone by.

    Cornelius Vanderbilt would beat the tar out of Mini-Mike for what he’s done. Then probably knock out Anderson Cooper as an afterthought.

  131. Sick New Yorkers will be seeking care here soon.

    We need to close our border.

  132. “I – of course- could farm.”
    ======

    Lots of experience repairing and maintaining equipment? Really good at operating large equipment? Like to get up in the middle of the night to change the irrigation ditches?

  133. She can’t even kill chickens.

  134. I could homestead and produce enough to sell for a bit extra. I wouldn’t want to farm at a scale big enough to need heavy machinery. Heck, I’m wary of farming pigs because I don’t want to try and butcher something that size.

  135. Jay,

    The foreign doctor on Tucker said it was liability. If doctors do something off label and bad things happen they are probably open to a malpractice lawsuit. Lawyers ruin everything.

  136. Hmm, makes sense. Doesn’t the EU have a CDC? FDA? Pretty sure China doesn’t, but South Korea? What are their results?

  137. All this kowtowing to China by Bloomberg and the like has me nostalgic for the “robber barons” of days gone by.

    Vanderbilt would probably have enough reserves to keep his company going, even if at a reduced rate, for a couple months, and then rehire everyone once the threat was passed.

  138. Erin’s avoided me all day. And the idiots are so … I can’t even. I found beer cans in my yard.

    They’re animals and they’re not allowed here anymore.

  139. I thought this was good article linked to by Insty:

    https://science20.org/david-zaruk/20200320/coronavirus-shows-our-reliance-precautionary-principle-has-ruined-our-ability?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

    Covers a lot of the discussions here. Taking personal responsibility to manage your own risk vs. those who want to eliminate risk. This is kind of my soap box at work with our current lab safety culture. They keep wanting to taking away my ability to manage my own risk so the lab is safe for a toddler.

  140. Well, I finally lost it! Was just in the grocery store and saw a man whose cart was FULL to the brim with hand sanitizers, baby wipes, soaps, everything that people need!! I called him a selfish asshole, and gave him a low down about the elderly, moms of children and other people who need these types of things.

    Told him he should be freaking ashamed of himself for his hoarding!

    He said: “Are you done? Cause I really need to get back to restocking the shelves now…”

  141. I can’t even. I found beer cans in my yard.

    Are they that stupid? All you have to do is call a cop. Busted, they are, cuz Erin probably isn’t drinking.

  142. Jay the only paper I read was French. They drastically shortened the recovery time. Something like 90% showed no signs of the virus after 3 days.

  143. Vanderbilt donated his largest steamship to the Union Navy and put his best men on it to help the war effort, at his own expense.

  144. That’s the numbers he was quoting. Why is Fauci so against it? And the entire left on FB is foaming at the mouth for the suggestion, and is showing videos of Fauci “rolling his eyes at Trump’s bullshit”.

    Trump has been listening to everything he’s told, as far as I can tell.

  145. That’s the Chloroquine and Z-pack, right?

  146. Survived another shift. We are now moving limits to 1 for just about everything. On my day off, Management “Fired” a Member. She tried coming in multiple times for baby wipes. They refused her the 3rd time. Didn’t recognize her the 2nd time. She threw her card at the MOD and told him to “Go Fuck yourself”. Personally, I would let it expire, but we took the card and refunded the membership.

  147. Refused? Like you had some and wouldn’t let her buy them?

  148. Covers a lot of the discussions here. Taking personal responsibility to manage your own risk vs. those who want to eliminate risk. This is kind of my soap box at work with our current lab safety culture. They keep wanting to taking away my ability to manage my own risk so the lab is safe for a toddler.

    I have to disagree with the article. The problem isn’t an overabundance of caution, but the fact that we weren’t cautious enough in the decades leading up to this moment. We outsourced our manufacturing capabilities, became increasingly reliant on convoluted global trade networks, lived increasingly paycheck to paycheck (even on a corporate scale), created a medical system that was stretched thin even in good times, failed to properly prepare a public health plan, and overall drastically increased our exposure to risk in order to chase increasing returns.

    Those were the decisions which led to this moment. Those decisions are what are forcing governments to make hard choices now, often in the absence of good data.

  149. Erin’s avoided me all day. And the idiots are so … I can’t even. I found beer cans in my yard.

    They’re animals and they’re not allowed here anymore.

    Sounds like Erin needs to start looking for a place of her own. Find a couple of roommates and split the rent like every other young adult.

  150. I found beer cans in my yard.

    This is where I would grab their hair at the nape of the neck, lift, and twist, then yell in their face like a Marine drill sergeant.

  152. Just got back from Walmart. Shelves are generally about 25% full. Some areas are zero% And I don’t know if it’s payday but there was an unusually gross group of people at Walmart.

    And the stuff they were buying was unfortunately indicative of the way they looked. Lots of very obese people.

  153. This is true:

    “We outsourced our manufacturing capabilities, became increasingly reliant on convoluted global trade networks, lived increasingly paycheck to paycheck (even on a corporate scale),”

    But this I’m not so convinced matters.

    ” created a medical system that was stretched thin even in good times, failed to properly prepare a public health plan, and overall drastically increased our exposure to risk in order to chase increasing returns.”

    Our healthcare system is not stretched thin. Europe’s is…because it’s a national system.

    The government makes bad decisions. They do constantly. All the more reason to be responsible for yourself, your family and your neighbors. Have a couple months worth of storable food, have guns and ammo, stored water, basic health/emergency supples.

    Do you think generations before us had it easier? Had a government that made better decisions? They all suck.

  154. Ha! Jay, as I was reading your joke, I kept thinking that can’t be Jay he’s too nice to say that to anyone.

  155. I shared Jay’s joke in 3 states and 4 counties in Maine so far

    You could say … I’ve made it viral

  156. All nonessential businesses have been ordered to close here.

    We are down to healthcare, groceries, gasoline, auto repair, and booze.

    Things may get ugly in a couple of weeks.

  157. We’re being forced to limit. Most people could GAF about anyone else. 221 more items are limited to 1 as of today. Eggs, milk, pet food. J’ames, everyone believes they should be the exception to the limit. I’m talking to my boss tomorrow. My friend works for a GI guy. bladder cancer patients need one cup of bleach to flush. Their patients can’t get bleach. WM is encouraging us to donate where we can. I’m hoping we can help.

  158. Scott, CA has kept their dispensaries open. And abortion clinics. “essential “

  159. Osita, you can get bleach tablets that you dissolve in a gallon of water. I have some because bleach doesn’t store well for long periods.

  160. CA marijuana dispensaries are essential too

  161. Local news had a member of the Bangor City Council on and he said they were “talking about a shelter in place order”. Given the way everything has gone down that means it will happen.

  162. Half the state will be on funemployment.

    This could be the worst summer ever.

  163. Roamy, thanks. I’ll let her know. I get thanked a few times a day for us being open. Our DC is in WY. Blizzard in Denver. Raton Pass closed. Only local trucks today. No meat. No deli. No Produce.

  164. Dairy is local, but their supply chain can’t keep them supplied. We’ve increased vendors to daily, but they can’t keep up with demand.

  165. I’m going to brag about my oldest, she was furloughed today.

    She bought a small house on her own (we did not co-sign) before she was married. She’s not making a lot so I’m incredibly proud she saved to have a decent down payment. But she is so kick ass that she has 6 months of all bills/mortgage in savings for emergencies.

    She was determined to have an emergency account so that if anything happened she wouldn’t be in a jam. Her husband is in school so they are living on her paycheck. His side job is working in a restaurant and I think they are shut down now.*

    *The restaurant where he works is some big time place in Tampa where celebrities doing concerts and whatnot always rent part of the place for parties, that kind of thing. He can bring in one to two hundred a night being a bar back.

  166. Shelter in place is bullshit.

    Just got an emergency notice on my cell phone that Pinellas county is closing the beaches at midnight.

    FFS.

  167. Mare, EXACTLY. I live in one of the least populated states in the freaking country…I can’t camp. I can work with a bunch of fucking pigs that don’t even put their toilet paper in the toilet…shelter in place except for grocery workers.

  168. Perpetual Adoration that has been going on since 1986, through tornadoes and everything else, has been called to a halt.

  169. Oso, it’s a clusterF*** for sure.

    Roamy, our diocese has shut down all Masses until further notice. HUH? Perpetual adoration??? This is what Catholics need. I don’t understand some of the decision making.

  170. Why on earth would they need to halt adoration? I’ve never gone and had another living person even get near me.

  171. It’s a small chapel.

    They moved the monstrance into the main church, and they have people there all the time the church is open.

  172. Praying that Pence’s staff didn’t spread this around. Shit.

  173. Mare, glad to hear that about your daughter. Rocketboy has some set aside, mainly because I kept telling him to. Aerospace is such a boom and bust career, you gotta be prepared for layoffs.

  174. No Mass here, but adoration and daily rosary continues.

  175. Mass no mas.

  176. Hay guy came by today, looks like we’re going to plant about 5 acres now and then wait for the electrical workers to finish their crap and do the rest later.

  177. Scott wins the Internet.

  178. Scott won so much, that I read Leon’s “Hay” in Spanish.

  179. I haven’t been practicing Spanish at all. Not for months. Haven’t been watching my soaps either.

  180. I checked today, the Kalamazoo diocese has canceled masses too, so there is no local mass near me at all.

  181. Leon, multiple priests are streaming and churches aren’t on lockdown. Churches are posting Palm Sunday access to Palms.

  182. I’ve been watching masses on YouTube. Prayed Rosary yesterday for relief from pestilence as the Pope requested. That was hard.

  183. #1 grandson is here. Penelope fed him a bottle and he drained it. When it ran out, he got mad. It was hilarious. He’s a chunk. Usually a really happy baby.

  184. I can see Hotspur saying this…

    https://tinyurl.com/r54yxqv

  185. I’m long past the point of caring Trump starts calling those f*ckers in the media the motherf*ckers they are. Actually, I never cared. Husband may be slowly coming to that point.
    As mentioned above, him calling a spade a spade is what rankles their nasty asses.

  186. Yea, it’s not erin drinking. I started discussing this with her when she got home, but ethan took over and said he had it handled. Ethan was irritated too .

  187. Then Hannah texted about how ethan and erin should be social distancing. It was a weird day.

  188. >>#1 grandson is here.

    Pictures or it didn’t happen.

  189. Re: liability of anti-virals proven to work on coronavirus’ and Fauci…

    We’ve known that drug worked on SARS, so the CDC and FDA has had what, 15 years to approve it for coronavirus and they didn’t. We are now in the middle of another SARS level virus. We don’t have 15 years to trial run it again on coronavirus’ and sign it in trilliontriplicate and then start over because some i wasn’t dotted.

    What have they been doing in the 15 years this could have been done?

  190. #1grandson pics are obligatory

  191. From Peel, at Aces:

    We actually suspect my dad might have had it (went to hospital Jan 27 and will come home next week). His symptoms were consistent with other reports – high fever, deep chest cough, needed to go on a ventilator, fluid in lungs, lung damage (he suffered a pneumothorax) – and he didn’t test positive for flu A until he’d already been in the hospital for a couple of weeks. If the antibody test becomes available, I would think we’ll request it because it would give us some peace of mind. (He has bone marrow cancer and lung disease and kidney disease. So yeah, at risk.)

    I’ve said all along that the case count is way too low for Houston (still only 24 cases in Harris County), given our high Chinese population and travel back and forth. I think it’s been here a while, but it just didn’t get noticed.

    Posted by: Mrs. Peel at March 20, 2020 08:29 PM (rWZ8Y)

  192. I think we are ready. We’ve got 5 handles of whiskey, a pound and a half of tobacco and 600 filter tubes… oh, and a bunch of frozen food and canned veggies from the garden…

  193. Chris, as I’ve mentioned, I’m pretty sure my family (and thus my daughter’s preschool) had this in February.

  194. listening to what Burr said and wrote, he didn’t lie, and he didn’t say we weren’t ready.

    Sometimes Tucker is sensational. Then there’s today.

  195. I want Feinstein to publicly apologize for her decades of treason and the seppuku.

    Until then, I can’t get exorcised over anyone lining their pockets. We only hear this because they have Rs after their names.

  196. Oh, and Biden, and both Clintons, and both 0bamas…

  197. And the entire Pelosi family…

  198. I’d say Burr was about as tone deaf as you can get, with this one.

  199. I don’t disagree, I’ve just got people waaaaaaaaay ahead of him and Loeffler on The List.

  200. Alex, I kind of have the same take Mare did to your comment.

    My take on the article is we have Nerfed everything and now some/most people don’t know how to handle personal risk. Now part of this is the trial lawyers sue everything that moves. But kids can’t walk to school alone now and you can’t trust an employee to operate equipment without twenty training classes. We’ve gone from trying to minimize risk to tying to eliminate it and that’s impossible and really not healthy. People then start outsourcing their own risk management and when they do need to manage it they are unprepared.

    $20

  201. I haven’t heard it said, but I think atheism is part of it. If you think dying is really the end, then personal safety is more important than almost anything else. If you believe that there’s a Heaven and that you life has some transcendent meaning and you’ve repented and so on, you can accept a lot more risk for the sake of accomplishing something worthwhile, even if that’s something as mundane as providing for your family.

  202. Any MI peeps hear about multiple 20 something victims at Beaumont hospital in Royal Oak? Supposedly jam packed with 20’s victims, perfectly healthy.

    I smell bullshit.

  203. Debra earned raises perennially.

  204. […] H2 has Big Boob Friday. And some Rule 5 for the […]
