Willowing A-Bob "OL: "Who here ever claimed to be doing anything else? (than guessing)"

Listened to a pod with the former CNBC guy Jeff Macke. His bottom line when asked about what sort of market recovery we're likely to see was: "The biggest risk in the markets is nobody knows anything about this shit."

My point from the beginning is that the most lasting damage to our economic way of life is that, now that any hick politician can close any targeted business he does not like on a whim and without any sort of due process or other constitutional protections, is that the entire basis of our economy is now seen by all to be on thin ice. The world of commerce already has more than enough uncertainty, not having a Rule of Law in the US for the first time since our founding will be hard to deal with. But now that it has been done, unless something quite significant (severe SCOTUS spanking?) can be done to guarantee that this was a one time and never again event, then capital will have to take that into account as it decides where in the world to make investments, and whose people to hire in doing so.

Just checking in. I woke up mad as a murder hornet this am. Read a bunch of political blogs, including here, and decided I need to take a break. Too much retail and too much political discussion leads to too many cocktails, and a super cranky CC girl, which my poor family could do without. So I took my frustrations out on that garden I am building. Sunshine and labor are good for the soul.

I wanted to tell you what I told my daughter today. She runs with a bandana hanging loose at her neck and pulls it up if near other people outside. She just being nice, as it’s the “rule” here in MA. She did not have it in today and I commented about it. She was going to get it, and I suggested that she be brave like the fallen men we are honoring this weekend, and go without. She paused, and then said she agreed, and that it is a good point. I told her if someone yells at her to reply, “Peace, be brave!” I mean we have to start somewhere.

Anyhoo, I feel much better. Not angry at husband and the dog, and all else now. But I will take a break for my mental health’s sake. God bless all of you, and have a splendid Memorial Day with your loved ones. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, we shall see how long this break lasts🙄).

ccgirl, when I get to Nantucket next week, will our hardware/lumber company (Marine Home Center) be open as usual? Almost no construction projects have been allowed to resume work except with express exceptions and then severe limits on workers.

Without due process, and without anything even vaguely resembling a public discussion of costs and benefits, and with open derision of the Constitution, and with the full-throated support of 99% of Democrats and the MSM and around half the electorate.

That’s terrifying to any business or commercial real estate owner, I would think.

Good afternoon. We just heard a medical helicopter fly over the cabin. Our small rural hospital has a helipad. People injured in the woods (loggers) or accident victims or other medical emergencies are transported to Bangor. The hospital is on the verge of bankruptcy and like many rural hospitals,will shut down or become a walk-in clinic. The hospital here covers an area the size of Rhode Island. Covid-19 will have a lasting impact on health care. Just a thought. Hope you are all enjoying the week-end.

jimmyk

On that NYC coronavirus "wildfire": Not denying it was significant, but just some perspective:

2.2% of NYC population tested positive. 0.22% of the population died from it (officially). I'm using the past tense because the numbers now are so low that the cumulative percentages won't change all that much.

The normal annual death rate for NYC is about 0.65 percent. So that 0.22% over 3 months sounds big, but some portion of them would likely have died during the year anyway.

Old Lurker

Should be terrifying to anybody not living on a deserted island, James. It underpins sooner or later every aspect of markets and trade and commerce. It will impact everybody in the country.

Shaking my head in wonder that the Gov of Michigan was able to tell Home Depot which departments could be open and which must be closed. Or which seeds are "essential" and which not.

Well how can I take a break if you ask me a question? They probably are open but with limitations. Most lumber cos request call in and then give you a time to enter. But I hear some are opening up more. Same with hardware. We never changed hours or counted occupancy, but Aubuchon down the street limited its hours, and is only allowing two people in at a time.

Good luck with the trip up here, and let me know how it out on Nantucket.

MJW

Last night I mentioned that (conservative lawyer) Margot Cleveland didn't find it unusual that Sullivan hired a high-power lawyer to present his side of the mandamus issue. Perhaps she knows of other examples, but the case she points to seems to me to be different enough that is doesn't convince me she's correct.

She points to a 7th circuit case, In re US. In that case, the the government attorneys sought through mandamus to have the judge recused.

On big difference is that the judge was invited, not ordered to respond. The main response was sought from the defense attorneys. In fact, the circuit court's ruling relies entirely on the government's and the defense's responses; the judge's response isn't even mentioned.

The other big difference is, unlike the Flynn case, the issue didn't center around the judge's legal reasoning. The question was whether certain actions by the judge gave the appearance of prejudice against the government's case.

(The circuit court ordered the judge recused.)

Extraneus

That sounds pretty good, TK. Simple, too, and the basic recipe could work with knockwurst, weisswurst, or even Italian sausages.

MJW (or anyone else who wants to weigh in), do you think the taxpayers are paying Wilkerson's fee, or Sullivan personally?

Kind of like calling someone a c*** because she brought the discussion of Rick Ballard and Cecil Turner over to a succeeding thread rather than talk about what you thought she should have talked about.

As the one who initiated that argument and then dropped out, I'm not playing this grade school level drawing hearts with initials crap about online people choosing to go elsewhere deserving pity parties compared to someone who actually died. I don't care if I'm the only person who feels that way.

Old Lurker

James again "...or commercial real estate owner, I would think."

Not just commercial. Who wants to build or own an apartment building whose tenants might be told by the county that they need not pay rent during a crisis? I had pals who were building apartment buildings for students next to colleges...boy are they scared for the long term of that business model.

And it is not just the owners who are scared, who wants to lend for such a project or even for a tenant in such a project?

And then it comes full circle back to Joe Blow living on his quiet little street in Arlington. The dirty secret is that since the late 60's Arlington has expanded its government exponentially by the taxes and fees they got from commercial projects. While 50% empty buildings have "some" value, those values are half what they were and so their tax bills will be reduced accordingly (as the assessment cycles play through and all the appeals get adjudicated). The only goose left to tax more to regain the taxes they just killed will be homeowners. Suck on that, Arlington. (and counties across the land...)

I can imagine using that same method with Italian sausages, adding some bell peppers, and substituting a little tomato sauce for the mustard.

NYC coronavirus "wildfire"

I used the word wildfire in the sense that environmental conditions can be conducive to wildfire such that any spark will quickly turn into uncontrollable conflagration.

I think dust explosion might be a better analogy. Sawdust, grain dust, flour can all explode if conditions like dust in the air mix are just right.

In NYC the virus spread very fast to a large number of people before anyone knew about it. Once any mitigation was implemented it probably stopped the explosive transmission down to something like flu levels. Of course the NYC peeps with the unknown virus traveled and spread exposure to neighboring NJ and elsewhere.

Just a theory.

I doubt that influenza or most other corona viruses have that dust explosion property (if it or something like it exists).

The decreasing quality of the delivery services has come up a couple times in the last couple months. My current annoyance is FedEx.

I’ve a small bit of freight that shipped from south Texas on Thursday, with the FedEx tracking page telling me delivery to my Flyover address would be today.

The last tracking event was departure from the Houston area Friday morning. You can drive from Houston to Flyover in a longish day.

Tracking site has been stuck there for 2.5 days now with no apparent movement. Site still shows delivery today. Obviously isn’t happening.

I understand they’re underwater because of the lockdowns. If it takes another week to get here, I’m OK with that. Just don’t post a date you can’t make, and let me know about delays.

As the "stay home, save lives" crowd confronts the fact that their beloved "experts" were, in reality, about as well-informed as the rest of us when they made the fateful recommendation that the imposition of lockdowns - in most cases legally enforced - was the best option for combating the spread of SARS-CoV-2, a Nobel-prize-winning scientists from Stanford said in an interview published Sunday that, according to his models, the lockdowns didn't save lives, but actually caused more deaths.
Prof Levitt, a British-American-Israeli who shared the Nobel prize for chemistry in 2013 for the "development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems", has said for two months that the planet will beat coronavirus faster than most other experts predict.

"I think lockdown saved no lives," said the scientist, who added that the Government should have encouraged Britons to wear masks and adhere to other forms of social distancing.

"I think it may have cost lives. It will have saved a few road accident lives - things like that - but social damage - domestic abuse, divorces, alcoholism - has been extreme. And then you have those who were not treated for other conditions."

A Nobel prize in chemistry doesn't make him an expert on this stuff, of course, but he did get the prize for modeling.

"The problem with epidemiologists is that they feel their job is to frighten people into lockdown, social distancing. So you say 'there's going to be a million deaths' and when there are only 25,000 you say 'it's good you listened to my advice'. This happened with Ebola and bird flu. It's just part of the madness."

The prof doesn't explain why China did lockdowns. Their lockdowns shuttered factories and affected their entire economy.

We already know that China is asshoe. They don't care if their own people die by the millions as long as their march to glory proceeds.

Did they really do it to fake us out into doing our own?

JiB:

"But to all our strict consitutionsilst is this what you expected from the 10th amendment to our constitution. "

In regard to rest of the amendments, my answer would be no, but where the 10th is concerned I'd say it's doing what it's supposed to do. If there's anything this crisis has made clear, it's that one-size-fits-all solutions do not, in this case, fit all, at all. Different states have approached the problem in very different ways, which would not have been possible if DC had been command central.

Even if we never end up with truly reliable stats to work with, I think we can certainly end up with a sense of the relative success in different state responses. It also makes it much easier for citizens to make themselves felt politically, because they know exactly who is responsible for their own state's conditions. I expect Michigan's governor is going to feel some serious blowback. It's far harder effect change when the Federales are in charge. All I have to do is look at MI and CA to be grateful for the 10th. I just wish Kristi Noem were my governor, and I just hope we don't all end up paying big bucks for other states' disastrous policies under the guise of re-opening "stimulus."

boris

"authorities (along with the media) who were minimizing the dangers"

Well okay sure. But in order to minimizing the danger there has to be a danger above and beyond regular flu and that is what I am attempting to suggest.

IOW that there is an explosive transmission quality to this virus that's different, but requires a certain population density and surprise (no mitigating efforts). And without that condition, whatever it is, may be no worse than the flu.

But if those conditions a present it can be scary.
