Is The Deflator going with Tom?

Another Bob

IMO Peyton Manning forever marred his career going to Denver.

I assume “TB12” is about to do the same somewhere.

He really ought to retire, move to Cali or New Mexico and make a second mint being some sort of self-improvement guru. There are a lot of suckers out there for that sort of thing.

Probably posted here. Sidney Powell on Flynn's case, at Hillsdale. Long, but fascinating.

Most important , and why I am reposting:

"Keep AG Barr in your prayers. I know you are praying for General Flynn, and for me. We both feel it."

Tom Brady is worth 180 millllllllllllllion dollars
His wife Gisele is worth 400 milllllllllion.

I think they'll be ok.

Good Morning! Hubby is meeting a couple of friends from Maine to take them kayaking at one of his favorite places near here. He sent me a text that he noticed a homeless guy walking his dog. Hubby took a second look and realized it was Stephen King. Ha! King must be social distancing at his Casey Key home. What a hypocrite. He's always tweeting anti-Trump rants. How nice to escape to a secure,exclusive enclave in Florida.

Jack Lillywhite

Now, for some important news: Tom Brady says he will not return to the Patriots.

Another Bob

Does Belichick now leave too? Retire?

Make bank moving back to Cleveland to unsuccessfully unf*** that pathetic operation?

Marlene

I watched the late news on a Tampa station last night and after the virus news,they breathlessly reported that Brady will be playing in Tampa. I don't think that is confirmed,but the female sports reporter was swooning.

Jane

I VOTED!!!

About 3 people there - usually around 50 at this time of day.

So sad about Brady!

jimmyk

“The craziness is that the Dr. Faucis of the system are looking only at their narrow objective without any sense whatsoever about whether that target is worth the cost that pursuing those goals will demand. And Trump and all the others are powerless to hold them back.“

Yes, we are likely headed for a 2008 style financial crisis, the economic impact of which will kill far more people than COVID-19 ever would have, never mind all the wealth destroyed.

Comment on Tom Brady's Tweet:
Tim, I am appalled at your lack of loyalty and am shaking with rage. I'm a youth football coaching legend, and when a player once hinted he wanted to play for another team, I got father fired by falsely accusing him of drinking on the job

Didnt they say as much they didnt want him back,

Here's a good thread by Harmeet Dhillon about the corrupt leaders in California now appearing to have good judgment over how to manage people during this time. She appears on Lou Dobbs frequently and seems to be a good solid conservative:

Here's her first comment: "1/As a San Francisco resident and business owner, I’m wondering—can I trust the health judgments of leaders who let thousands live on the streets in their filth? And if we are now getting homeless into shelter, why couldn’t that have happened earlier? Doesn’t their health count?"

Captain Hate

IMO Peyton Manning forever marred his career going to Denver.

I assume “TB12” is about to do the same somewhere.

It has to be incredibly hard at his level to quench the competitive fires. His career, except for one knee injury, has been free from injuries which probably currently cause him no pain so he's been lucky. Belichick surely recognizes he's reaching the "diminished skills" stage of life, to coin a term he employed with sending Bernie Kosar packing, although his relationship with TB has obviously been very different.

Narciso

Did i miss it, did belichek suggest he wanted him back, im not pro brady just the most anti goodell possible?

Talk about social distancing. It's Men's Day at the golf course and they have decided to split groups up into 3's instead of 4's and each golfer gets his own cart. Usually it is two to a cart:)

DC has its first--unfortunately a doctor in the hospital that treats the most vulnerable.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--What evidence?--

Since there aren't too many peer reviewed papers on something so new we have to rely on what the guys watching it and studying it say and look at the numbers. That's one reason they put so much effort into discovering how each case occurred.
It spreads far too easily to be primarily blood or fluid borne like Ebola or AIDS. It spreads similarly to the flu though more virulently than influenza just by the numbers, partly due to its novelty as they call it.
But it does not seem to spread as easily as the measles which can be airborne.
There is so far no real evidence it is spread through inhalation in any significant way, just through case studies. With enough numbers and knowledge of other pathogens, sometimes absence of evidence is evidence of absence.

That is why outlined the Wired link as “common sense.”

Either way, the meat of the story is the conflict between health professionals regarding droplets.

Oh, so after Yates took the kill shot on Flynn, she later claims to have had reservations, both about the circumstances of the FBI ambush and the idea of a Logan Act prosecution? How convenient. And who is Mary McCord? Why, the same person who now works for Adam Schiff and who the corrupt IC IG Atkinson reported to when she was Assistant Attorney General. Just a couple of straight-shootin' former G-women.

When I was about a third of the way through the 2nd grade, we sold our ranch in the hills of Montana where I attended a one room school with 6-8 older kids and we moved to Spokane for about three months. During those miserable three months, I’m not sure I actually attended classes more than three weeks. Serially contracted every childhood disease probably along with the flu. Go to school for a couple days, get a bug, lay in bed for a week or ten days. Rinse, repeat. After that, I think my annual flu hit about the 3rd week of school in the fall. Pretty much hardened me to the point that I’ve almost never gotten particularly sick my whole adult life. Getting my tonsils out at 21 may have been the final step.

News from my nurse sister, who works 3 days a week at a surgery center and is 66:

No elective surgeries for 30 days in either the surgery center or the main hospital surgery.

They are anticipating they might have to use the ventilators in the surgery rooms and convert them to ICU's.

She was told to put down her age as a health risk.

Only 2 entrances can be used for the hospital, and you have to have your temperature taken when you enter. No exceptions.

She anticipates she will not be seeing anyone very much for a while, because she feels a duty to be available for nursing care and she doesn't want to get sick.

Also, we now have two firefighters in quarantine from this side of town, so it looks to me like grocery delivery was a good idea.

$500 bil in payroll tax cut, $250 bil in Small Business Association loans, $58 billion for the airlines, and a smattering of other items.

A commenter over at New Neo claimed that restaurant owners in Oregon asked to be shut down, so that they can file claims on their business interruption insurance. If those claims are nation-wide, I don't see how the insurance companies survive. Of course they will be bailed out, but they don't seem to be included in this ridiculous stimulus package. They payroll tax cut is completely pointless.

”The defendants claimed both EPA Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program credits and IRS tax credits for biodiesel fuel that did not exist, defrauding taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars,” said Lance Ehrig, EPA Acting Special Agent in Charge. “With this action EPA and its enforcement partners are continuing to protect both the integrity of the RFS program and the American taxpayer.”

The problem is that banks have to be allowed to use that liquidity, but then they run afoul of liquidity coverage ratio requirements. Kind of ironic, no? Maybe that's being addressed, but all I hear about is the Fed intervening and providing more.
