So the MILWAUKEE MILLER BEER MURDERER, had a wife who was a SQUAW FAN.
OK.
He may or may NOT have been a COMPLETELY IGNORANT FULL COMMIE HUSBAND.
He had a GUN with a SILENCER. He did not shoot up the office at MILLER BREWING BEFORE arming his BLACK LIVES MATTER SELF, with the ARMS, and the SILENCER, that he had already and previously took the trouble to OWN. In other words. This dead perp, was a CRIMINAL, long before he decided to BE A MURDERER.
How would RACIALLY MORONIC LIBTARDS SUGGEST That this BLACK MURDERER be stopped.

Coronavirus: asymptomatic Wuhan woman shows why outbreak 'will be hard to stop'

Case study of 20-year-old who infected relatives despite not showing signs of illness – and testing negative – stokes global pandemic fears

"Scientists in the study were careful to qualify the conclusions by saying the evidence “suggested” the woman had infected her relatives. But they nevertheless warned that if the findings were replicated, “the prevention of Covid-19 infection could prove challenging”.

My husband was going to take his orchestra to China next spring break, but because it involves fundraising was naturally cancelled. Candidates now: NY, Costa Rica, or Ireland. The orchestra gets to decide tomorrow. The whole group needs to go for under $200K.

Yesterday I assuaged my considerable anxieties re the virus by buying three weeks worth of food to sustain four people. I don't feel guilty, because if it's all not needed, I didn't buy anything we can't use up in the fullness of time. But I forgot to stock up on gin--that I can still do. There's certainly no anxiety here in Lincoln--but I know perfectly well how quickly anxiety can arise and am grateful for my basement stores.

I think OL's and CH's conflict and then resolution this morning is a model for us all. Cheered me up a bunch (the resolution part).

Read this NONSENSE.
One of his co-workers, recognized that this DUDE was FUCKED in the HEAD. The story says that the MURDERER believed he was being singled out, because he was "QUOTE" African-American. UTTER HORSE SHIT.
But but but but, another co-worker said the BLACK MASS MURDERER seemed NORMAL.
So, WHY did this PUT UPON AFRICAN-AMERICAN have a couple guns with SILENCERS????

Nothing really brought me around. I grew up in a conservative household and Uncle Milton just seemed like common sense, although perfectly phrased. I wonder what my parents would think of Trump. My father died early in Regan's first term so I never got to discuss his Presidency in depth with any hindsight but both my parents were pleased with his election. I'd like to think they'd like the Orange Scalpweasel but they'd be like 95 and 100 now so it's one of those things I can only guess at.

The mess is getting messier. Turkish troops killed. Rebels re-take territory. Reports of manpad weapons fired at Russian planes. Turkey firing on "Syrian" army positions.

US and NATO backing Turkey. Turkey opening border for refugees to enter Europe.

If it was just the Iranian-backed militias against the Nusra Front I'd like them to fight to the death.

I don't back either side and I don't care if it heats up as long as we don't get dragged into it.

Tactically I think NATO and the US have to publicly back Turkey. I don't think we need to back them militarily.

Narciso,

Thanks for the Taiwan article link. That was interesting. I think I'll read the other articles listed at the bottom.

Yes, I don't like that civilians are bearing the brunt of the Idlib fight. 800,000 reported refugees was the latest count.

I mean I know that the refugees are being driven away so that the terrorists can't hide among them, but it's a brutal tactic. Random civilian casualties from bombing runs. Hospitals and clinics target deliberately. I don't know if they were being used as bases of operation, but every report I read of them said they actually treated people.

I know there is propaganda on both sides so it's hard to tell what is really going on. If the civilians are now out of harms way I have no problem with Turkey and its clients duking it out with Syrian, Iranian, Russian and client militias.

A dedicated Teamsters Union worker was attending the DNC convention in Milwaukee and, as you would expect, decided to check out the local brothels nearby. When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, "Is this a union house?"

"No," she replied, "I'm sorry it isn't."

"Well, if I pay you $100.00, what cut do the girls get?"

"The house gets $80.00 and the girls get $20.00."

Mightily offended at such unfair dealings, the man stomped off down the street in search of a more equitable, hopefully unionized shop. His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded, "Why yes sir, this IS a Union House."

The man asked, "And if I pay you $100.00, what cut do the girls get?"

"The girls get $80.00 and the house gets $20."

"That's more like it!!!" the UAW man said. He handed the Madam $100.00, looked around the room and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde. I'd like her for the night."

"I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam, then gesturing to an 85 year old woman in the corner, "but Ethel here has Seniority."

Doctors Inside Iran Believe Coronavirus Is More Serious Than Reported, and Getting Worse

https://www.npr.org/2020/02/27/810095446/coronavirus-outbreak-in-iran-has-tehran-residents-doubting-government-response

Johns Hopkins numbers for Iran now - 270 confirmed total cases, 26 deaths (the highest still outside of China). The current 9.6% fatality rate has has come down again, but it's still too high compared to other countries.

When Iranian doctors and citizens are doubting the government and wondering if they repressed news to boost the election vote turnout I tend to agree.

They're still running railroad trains to Qom? They encouraged people to congregate for last Friday's election?

Let's start the incubation countdown clock at last Friday and see if Iran doesn't suffer an explosion in new cases of Covid-19 next week.

jim nj

I saw more questionable reporting on the coronavirus on the 11 o'clock news. They have decided that it's not enough to report on total reported Covid-19 cases without mentioning the total recoveries, they are now reporting on the spread of Covid-19 to over 60 countries.

60+ countries, that has to be a very bad, very scary number.

It isn't. 32 countries have 1 confirmed Covid-19 case. Quite a few of those countries also have 1 recovered case, meaning that, as best we know, that country is now virus free.

A better, more accurate metric, in terms of telling the true story, instead of inducing mindless panic, would be to cite the number of countries with active threats.

8 countries have recovered cases matching total cases - Sri Lanka, Nepal, Egypt, Cambodia, Belgium, Russia, India and Vietnam. Finland was on my prior list, but added a new case.

Some other countries recovered cases are coming close to the total infected cases. Without new infections the two categories will soon match up.

From the above list of countries Vietnam is interesting with 16 total cases matching 16 recoveries.
