I love Gardens and Guns. When friends retired to Irvington, VA. I gave them a subscription to G & G. Recipes are good, too.

Why should the people and taxpayers of America be bailing out poorly run states (like Illinois, as example) and cities, in all cases Democrat run and managed, when most of the other states are not looking for bailout help? I am open to discussing anything, but just asking?

From amom's 1043a:

"If President Trump were able to step out of the White House and ask average citizens what they think about the mess we're in, I suspect he would find that the American people are much braver than the experts are giving them credit for.  They would tell him to reopen the country and assure him that he can fight the media, the virus, and the saboteurs of American prosperity all at the same time.  They would tell him with certainty to never surrender their jobs and their freedom. "

One surprise visit would steamroll these petty dicktaters. This is how his power IS absolute. Derail the STOP TRUMP VIRUS!

Reading posts re impending animal protein shortages. This is where powdered meal replacement products can reduce dependence on local grocery chains.

Whey or soy protein powders for shakes are available at Amazon online and GNC walk- ins.

Mix with water or non-fat milk cut with water. Atkins makes a delicious KETO product. i mix it with a phyto greens powder. It's great tasting stuff: my vanilla mix tastes like cake frosting- the chocolate does too.

Eating is important to our psyches. But the procurement process and supplies management can create low grade anxiety. KNOWING that your baseline nutritional needs are met for protein and key minerals will ease that pressure, boost your bodily functions that keep your immune system tuned, and transform your sleep patterns.

Probable cause and self-defense let you chase a guy down, jump out of a truck and start waving a shotgun? That's a Grand Canyon between "legal" and "common-sensical".

Well, maybe if the police did their actual job of catching criminals like Arbey, rather than allowing them to go on endless burglary sprees, then individual citizens wouldn't have to protect themselves and their homes and property.

Just a thought.




Old Lurker,

The President must have been listening to you!

Your 1120a rocks, OL.

The principal strength of our economy at every level or strata is in THE PEOPLE.

The petty dicktaters understand this NOT.

I believe this is the Second American Revolution in the making. The taters see this as the opp they've been waiting for.

But their ideas and scams are no match for our economic power and political will. They believe WE are cowering. I've been talking with business associates around the country: WE are regrouping.

Evers will become a workaround as state reps, county armadillo, and mayors find ways to shine him on so they can get re-elected by the increasingly angered mobs.

Well guys and gals, I opened up one of my businesses today against the "edict" of the Pennsylvania governor. Wednesday I have a full page ad in the local paper announcing it formally along with a list of precautions being taken. So, I either get arrested, or force my competitors to join the fun (which is actually my goal).

If you thought Adam Schiff couldn't get more partisan and escalate his idiocy then you need to read this Breitbart article. Just go to the Chris Hayes interview section. Whoever here once posted that all these CoVid19 deaths would be blamed on Trump were spot on.

What a despicable human being.

Not a FBer, so someone will please go check this?


"Hospital administrators might well want to see COVID-19 attached to a discharge summary or a death certificate. Why? Because if it's a straight-forward, garden-variety pneumonia that a person is admitted to the hospital for — if they're Medicare — typically the diagnosis-related group lump sum payment would be $5,000. But if it's COVID-19 pneumonia, then it's $13,000 and if that COVID-19 pneumonia patient ends up on a ventilator it goes up to $39,000."


I knew the CARES Act put a 20% Medicare payout premium for Covid-19 diagnosis, I'm just questioning that these numbers are being discussed, because there's a beeeg difference between 20% and 300%.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

It has been 'fact checked' as true by both USA Today and FB fact checkers, Mel.

Google USA Today using some key words and you will find their article on it.

Really pisses a lot of people off... and tis why PA redid their numbers after their CORONERS raised hell.


For Adam Schiff:

I have been taking prescription strength Famatodine for years. Heard about this today.


Maybe I can swap my neighbor a “dime bag” of famatodine for a couple “hits” of hydroxychloroquine:)


I don't have to check it Mel, I already know it's true. That's why everyone who dies these days die of coronavirus.

If you don't believe me, check the numbers of deaths from other things. They are pretty much gone. So I guess coronavirus kills all other causes.

WSJ Paywall but you get the gist here:

I get the impression the resurfacing of the Tara Reade sexual assault allegations are an inside hit job by the DNC. I wouldn’t be surprised if their plan all along has been to replace Biden on the ticket once he had the nomination locked up.


Who said it:

3. Credible rape accusations are disqualifying or we have NO moral standards.

Actually, it doesn’t even matter but it’s from a progtard. As if a) they even give a shit about “moral standards” and b) they apply them equally to everyone. It is to laugh. And, yes, this is in regard to Joementia.



In case your curiosity was getting the best of you.



it must be remembered a major part of this problem which has come back to bite us was created by the Obama/Biden administration and the medical device tax that was included in ObamaCare that was supposed to defray the costs of this doomed-to-failure new entitlement program. . . . Apart from forcing companies to cancel expansion plans and/or move overseas, one immediate effect of the medical device tax was to destroy jobs in an industry belatedly considered as part of our national security in an age of China-spawned pandemics.”

A good observation on that Ace thread:

If it is being allowed to "trend" on Twitter, then it is an inside op at this point. The DNC has made their decision.


Trump will do a briefing today- 5:00 as currently scheduled.


OK, I am up for a little bit until I get fussed at.

1. Adam Schiff has GOT to be guilty of some horrible crime. I mean REALLY horrible, not something like embezzlement. That's the kind of low rent, piker crime that won't turn heads.

He acts like he's in such a depraved, hate-filled grudge at President Trump that he's afraid he's going to be executed or something.

2. I don't think Joe will make it to the convention. Besides being incoherent and blank-looking, he's looks older than he is, he's a crook and a bully, and a dirty old man.

3. I do not think Michelle will get the nomination because she is not interested in finance, foreign policy, or anything serious. When she was first lady all she ever cared about was fashion (and it was BAD fashion) and having parties. (ANYONE SEEN THE GIRLS?)

4. Boy, is the DC Rumor mill going strong! I am not putting anything down in black and white, but all sorts of things are swirling around the capital!

Old Lurker

MM "but all sorts of things are swirling around the capital!"

Except anything that might, you know, help the country?



Thanks for the briefing news. I hope it's as enjoyable as Thursday's!


Old Lurker,

OK, here's one: not only will General Flynn be exonerated but the President will make him the new head of the FBI!


Ah snorfle kev.

Now that would make my day for sure, MM.

"Definitely murkier than Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown, since those were only murky to folks who were relying on emotion and pre-disposition."

I'll respectfully remind TM that, with very few exceptions, reporting on Martin and Brown started decidedly non-murky, but in precisely the opposite direction of what the facts later demonstrated.

Let's give it time.


Re TM’s post... vigilantism was popular among northern deplorables pre Reagan. See Charles Bronson.


Here in New York, the trial lawyers are getting shafted, despite their being one of the most powerful lobbies in Albany. The New York Courts are essentially shut down indefinitely which means the ambulance chasers are not making any money. I have to think that there must be some hot blue on blue action going on behind the scenes right now as these guys depend on a steady stream of settlements to fund their racket.


New York Cancels Democrat Presidential Primary over Coronavirus

(AP) — In an unprecedented move, New York has canceled its Democratic presidential primary originally scheduled for June 23 amid the coronavirus epidemic.

The Democratic members of the State’s Board of Elections voted Monday to nix the primary. New York will still hold its congressional and state-level primaries on June 23.

New York Democratic Party chair Jay Jacobs has said that the cancellation of the state’s presidential primary would mean a lower expected turnout and a reduced need for polling places.

“It just makes so much sense given the extraordinary nature of the challenge,” Jacobs said last week.

Wouldn't fewer polling places mean higher densities of people, just like what they did with the subways by running fewer trains?


Old Lurker,

I don't know if General Flynn would take it, but it would do my heart to see gumshoes scattering left and right, as well as RECORDINGS of interviews. If they need a typewritten transcript then have someone type it up afterwards.

One thing I know is that President Trump prizes loyalty, and other than family, Flynn is about as loyal as he can get.


People are soon going to be reminded that Malthus was absolutely right— without all of the accoutrements of 21st century life this planet cannot support 7.7 billion humans.

2017: A meat cutter goes to work at the Smithfield plant with the flu, infects his co-workers, and one of the coworkers goes home and infects his wife. His wife infects the kids in her home daycare. One of those kids has a mom who is a nurses aide at the nursing home. She gets infected and passes it to a patient. Who passes it to staff members, and from there other patients.

Two patients die.

2020: The meat cutter gets the CCPV from his coworker and goes home and infects his wife. His wife infects the kid (singular) in her home daycare. Because of the shutdown, the only kid coming to the daycare is the one who has a mom who is a nurses aide at the nursing home. (“Essential worker” you know.) She gets infected and passes it to a patient. Who passes it to staff members, and from there other patients.

Two patients die.

As soon as the nursing home patients show up with CCPV, the Health Department realizes that they have an outbreak and start contact tracing which leads them to testing pork plant workers, who are mostly young and don’t know they are infected, and now know because of the tests. So the pork plant shuts down, too. Lather rinse repeat all over the world.

7 billion people die of starvation, violence, exposure, etc.

Notice that the two nursing home patients die either way, because shutting down “non-essential” activity while “essential” activity continues doesn’t stop viruses from spreading. And doesn’t really even slow them down.

To prevent an infectious agent from reaching a vulnerable person you have to prevent the virus from reaching the people that the vulnerable person comes in contact with. As long as you allow contact between “essential” and “non-essential” people, it’s irrelevant whether you allow the “non-essential” people to work, go to school, etc.

matt - deplore me if you must

I am afraid that the cure is worse than the illness, now. When the major supply chain participants warn of disruption, one should heed those warnings.

A combination of reduced supply and a near before seen flood of dollars chasing it will lead to major inflation.Supply chains across product types are in disarray.

Just got a very nice order from one of the major semiconductor manufacturers and sure enough some components are long lead time because of the shutdowns. Instead of 8 weeks we are looking at 12-16 weeks. this will, I think, be standard.

Apple seems to be delaying their latest iPhone and others will be doing the same. A few trillion in keeping the doors open money will do little to spark market demand for a very wide swathe of goods. We need to get people back to work ASAP.

Airlines, hotels, entertainment, etc. will probably be the last to recover as people focus on basic needs.

Then again, if re-shoring does become a reality we could see a real economic boomlet. Prices will go up, but it is probably worth it to ensure we don't have to rely on a bunch of corrupt, lying, thieving bastards again.

Tom R

During the trial of Flynn's business partners, one of Flynn's Covington lawyers testified Flynn has never paid them for the criminal defense legal services. The only thing Flynn paid them for was their services in filing his FARA paperwork.

In light of the info we have now that Covington themselves may be corrupt and did not provide Flynn with legal representation in his best interest, does Flynn have any kind of legal recourse to avoid paying Covington the several million dollars they billed him?

I think this is the video (I wish people would relink things from prior threads when talking about them)


Manuel Transmission

I’ve been mulling kev’s MOAB from the previous thread and I’d like to restate the basic idea. Are we actually destroying something like a couple $Trillion per month primarily on the unsubstantiated concept that asymptomatic people can spread the virus? And, if kev’s comment is correct, it was initiated by some 3rd hand comment in the NEJM and then removed? Dear Whatever!

(BTW after a couple months, my brain still reads asymptomatic as asymptotic.)



These geniuses in the mainstream media and their pals in the Democrat party sure are big on telling everybody to stay under self-imposed house arrest, but perhaps your author is the only one noticing they trash every single suggestion for how to treat this thing.

Maybe none of these methods work. Or maybe the media and the Left actually LIKE the shutdown. And what would it say about them if that was the case?

Note to Mr. McKay: there is no “maybe” about what the MFM wants.
