New “quick test” approved. Shipping starts next week, article doesn’t say at what volume. (None of these announcements are instantaneous).

The “ Exponential Model” used by the elite academic experts predicts Apocalypse of 100s of 1000s, even millions of deaths from SARS CoV-2 , however, those predictions are not being empirically and scientifically verified by the data meaning that President Trump’s protocols, policies and leadership have defied the Apocalypse (and the elite academic experts). As of 23 March, there are 473 deaths. The JohnsHopkins mapping reports the specific geographical locations. I predict that by end of April the deaths will NOT exceed 1500 and the COVID-19 will have been contained and mitigated. However, seasonal influenza will continue to rampage.

The New York Times changed headlines 3 times in order to satisfy the Radical Left. What should have been a good story got “worse & worse”, until the headline alone made it very unfair. Fake & Corrupt News that is very dangerous for our Country!

Made my morning calls to local news and read them the riot act. FWIW, I have noticed that two false storylines that I called them out on last night were dropped this morning on separate stations. The third station I unloaded on again.

Going to call my worthless Senators now on their local, State and Federal telephone numbers now and let them know I am pissed.

Jane used to say something like “get off your couch* and save the country.”

She is right!

*Admittedly I am on my couch making these phone calls

--I think Trump should stop attacking Biden. In fact, he should be donating to his campaign. We need Biden to be the nominee and to survive until November.--

Concur.
They have a substantial base of True Believers, maybe 30% of the population who will follow them to perdition.
Figure a likewise number of upstanding geniuses like us. That leaves 40% of people who are enticed by the free goodies progs dangle like angler fish and who are persuadable on moral issues either way. But they don't respond well when the angler fish moves and they see past the bait to the open maw trying to devour them. The progs blatantly politicizing this crisis is the most foolhardy and risky thing they have undertaken perhaps ever. Unless Trump suddenly stops being Trump, I don't see how it ends well for them.

Went to Walmart this AM for a prescription. They had everything (except rubbing alcohol)- no line at the pharmacy - and not that many people. Pretty good actually.

I'm convinced Trump could gain 10-20 points in his approval rating with this simple announcement;
"Yo, fellow citizens there is a problem. There are shortages in our nations grocery and paper goods stores. There is no shortage overall, but there is a problem. The problem is YOU, ya dumbasses! Quite buying every damn thing as fast as you can because you think there's going to be a shortage, That is what makes the shortages you stupid assholes. Grow a brain and knock it off!"

I went to three different stores yesterday looking for eggs. None anywhere. WTH do you do with that many eggs? You can't freeze them. They don't last that long in the fridge. Either people are going to be eating omelettes til they can't stand em or they're going to be throwing them out by the millions in a few weeks.
Idiots.

Strippers staff ‘Boober Eats’ delivery service during coronavirus lockdown

In an effort to keep his dancers and kitchen staff employed during the coronavirus lockdown, a strip club owner in Portland, Ore. has created “Boober Eats.” The service brings pub fare, delivered by strippers clad in booty shorts and nipple pasties, straight to the customer’s door.

Video at the link.

The third station persists with their false lead in to today’s “panic the masses” headliner.

“First San Diego Covid Death!!!!”

The death occurred in Santa Clara county but his residence is in San Diego County. The news assholes barley let the real info out. I called the station a second time and asked for management. I was not allowed to go further than the dumb bitch who answered the phone. She decided the right thing to do was insult me.

--I kept meaning to tell you that I don't think globalization will become a casualty. I don't like to be a pessimist, hopefully I'm just being realistic, but the interconnectedness (is that a word? :) of world economies has gone too far to change. But, it all depends on Trump and getting back the house.--

I think you're wrong Joan and here's why. Nothing ever goes too far to change. Everything changes except human nature, which is predictable in itself but whose default effect in the world is fairly chaotic. So change is constant.
Globalization is already a casualty. Whether from overconfidence or desperation China has been exposed as simply another malignant communist dictatorship bent on enslaving the rest of the world. The facade Deng so carefully created has been destroyed by Xi in a few short years, helped along greatly by a big orange thing and a tiny invisible one the last three years.
I have no doubt weedeaters and tennis shoes and maybe even iphones will still be built in China. But rare earths, medicines, strategic industries of all sorts will have their supply chains yanked from China and the theft of IT will be greatly curtailed.
And I don't think it depends on Trump and congress though they will do a lot to make it happen. It depends on the people and the shareholders who will demand that simply for the safety of their investments that their exposure to a now obviously hostile and unstable power be curtailed.
Tienanmen Square changed nothing because that was an internal struggle that we hated to see but practically could do nothing about. This is a war we are being forced to wage because China, regardless of whether the origins of the Chinese virus are natural or manmade and regardless of whether its release was accidental or intentional, the very best case that can be made is China is dangerously incompetent and dishonest and when caught out resorts to astoundingly dishonest and dishonorable means to deny the obvious.
A secure nation that is safe to be part of the regular order of things would have admitted the existence of this bug and tried to stop its spread and would have begged the world's forgiveness when it's duplicity and incompetence were revealed.
As I said that's the best case. The only other possibility reveals a government so sinister it will have to be isolated as North Korea is to protect the rest of the world from it.

From Clarice’s link on fey Fauci:

Fauci was specifically asked about some of Trump's comments, including his assertion that China should have told US officials about the coronavirus three months sooner. That would have been around September, and there is no evidence Chinese officials were aware of the virus at that time.

"It just doesn't comport with facts," said the interviewer, Jon Cohen.

"I know, but what do you want me to do?" Fauci replied. "I mean, seriously Jon, let's get real. What do you want me to do?"

Fauci also said he had never used the term "China virus." Asked if he ever would, Fauci responded, "No."

Note that the interviewer takes the commies’ word on when they first knew about the outbreak.

Eggs actually do last a pretty long time, Iggy. And they're cheap protein for large families.

Extraneus

A secure nation that is safe to be part of the regular order of things would have admitted the existence of this bug and tried to stop its spread and would have begged the world's forgiveness when it's duplicity and incompetence were revealed.

Instead, they send out their foreign minister to tweet laughable conspiracy theories. (Meanwhile, everyday Chinese aren't allowed on Twitter.) It reeks of desperation.

They're always big on apologies, as in making people apologize to them. Yet they can't bring themselves to apologize to us, when a real apology would probably be accepted by many. (Not me; I want them canceled, especially Xi.)

St. Fauci was unable to scrub this from Google. (Yes. i have a case of the ass for this individual.)

Worth a close read by those who aren't fans of this guy and his known big money crusade associates.

not offering this link as a definitive piece. there are others. e.g. "The conduct of Dr. Fauci, and others, has compromised the basic principles of ethics, public trust and the most fundamental concepts that define "scientific integrity".

Original source for that quotation is an article in Japanese (?). as time permits i'll continue searching.

not interested in justifying or debating the merits of fleshing out his history.

Looks like the market doesn't think the Senate will come through today. Dow down 950 (5%).

What time is Biden's speech?

Posted on my park's FACEBOOK PAGE. Someone was complaining about an op-ed in the newspaper saying old people should not be cared for but rather left to die. Outrage from everyone. I pointed out that Biden's choice for some position, I can't remember which one, is Ezkial Emmanual who says everyone should be left to die after 75.

A democrat yelled at me: "NOT NOW JANE".

If the fresh eggs are gone don't forget liquid eggs. We use them a lot for scramble - just add some chives:)

As I said that's the best case. The only other possibility reveals a government so sinister it will have to be isolated as North Korea is to protect the rest of the world from it.

I don't see how that's even a question. It seems obvious to me that the Chinese Communist Government is the most dangerous regime in the world, and that it is utterly evil.

Ig, your 11.28. I hope you're right. I was being pessimistic. Perhaps because we lived abroad so long and watched so many American executives live and breathe globalism. It was like being there, London, Paris, Milan, Rome, gave them an elitism. The American (bankers, and merchant bankers, especially their wives were the biggest snobs). They were wealthy. Many considered themselves 'above' ordinary Americans back home. The money and deals flow. I can't see corporations giving that up unless taxes and tariffs really make them squirm and become detrimental to their bottom line. It's all about the money.
