Peter, maybe Maguire could try to persuade us with arguments and facts.
He was arguing that TRUMP is divisive. It's surreal. The LEFT, ACADEMIA, the Media, the W.H.O and every FULL COMMIE NUT, is blaming TRUMP for everything they can think of. Yet the very DEMOCRAT Governors that get them turgid and lock us down in many ways, escape blame. And the CHINESE escape blame as TRUMP is blamed for 50,000 deaths.
Maguire is just plain wrong, and he's straying into CONNECTICUT NUT territory. Maybe you and Jane know Maguire. I don't know him, and I don't know Patterico, and I don't know Bill Kristol etc etc, whether he is nice and is gracious in hosting ME, is not the issue. Why do you feel he needs defending WITHOUT DEFENDING HIS WORDS??

My wife can't even have a CATHOLIC FUNERAL MASS with family and friends, FOR HER MOTHER....

This is outrageous.

Most any church easily can mark off seats in the pews for (I bet) 2-300 people who can maintain six feet distancing.

What is with the totally pussified Catholic clergy?

Have the damn funeral GUS. Let the police come and arrest you all. Imagine those optics. 80 year old Catholics going to jail.

If for some reason this blog was made inhospitable for pro-Trump people and you had to leave, where would you go to communicate with like-minded people?

jimmyk @2:58pm,

My earlier comment wasn't clear. I should have said that perhaps Fauci and others anticipated a huge financial gain at some point when they came up with a vaccine or other treatment for COVID-19 patients. No one anticipated that the President would bring up the treatment proposed by Dr. Roult in France which used hydroxychloroquine and zinc in combination with azithromiacin to successfully treat COVID-19 patients. I recall Fauci not once but twice objecting to the President mentioning this as a possible treatment for COVID-19.

I believe that Dr. Raoult's study was successfully repeated by the French Ministry of Health using a much larger group of patients (with a control group) and there is anecdotal evidence of this same treatment being used by other physicians to successfully treat patients with the virus. Nonetheless, Fauci and others still object to the use of these widely available and inexpensive drugs to treat patients with COVID-19. In part, that could simply be due to a concern about following proper protocols, but given what we've seen and learned in the past two months, I doubt it.

Report from Home Depot:

1. They are only allowed to let a certain number of people enter at a time, so you have to wait in line outside on the asphalt parking lot, which gets HOT, and my daughter made me wear my mask. Also, you have to stand 6 feet behind the people in front of you and wait until someone exits before the next person can enter.

2. There were LOTS of couples, more than normal in Home Depot, so I assume there are lots of women who want to shop somewhere, anywhere, besides grocery stores!

3. No crabapple trees, but we did find 2 Pink Lady apple trees which are about 7 feet high and were on sale for $17.50 each, which was a pretty good bargain. (Potted, not bare root.)

4. The waiting in line (both to get in and at the register) is time-consuming. If we hadn't been buying trees, I would have bought the paint and trimmer cord on line and picked it up.

5. I would say 75% of people are wearing masks. All sorts of types, from very fancy ones to nothing but a scarf ties around the face. All I could think of was Clarice's column this morning.

Thanks anonamom, but 87 year old DAD isn't going to have police show up at his own church. He's an ARMY Veteran, and a dignified man who actually cleans the church, (with Susan, until she died).
The PRIESTS aren't going to fight Tony Evers.
This is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, it could not be more clear, I'm with Tom Maguire. I blame TRUMP for causing PATRIOTS to get pissed off and ready for a fight. Gretchen Shitmer is a victim so she cannot be blamed.

jimmyk

Barbara, I understood, and I concede that Fauci is not likely driven primarily by Orange Man Bad sentiments (even if he was a Hillary supporter). But in his case I think he's just playing the career bureaucrat: instinctively being cautious and following protocol, and at age 79 after, what, 40 years doing the same thing over and over again with the same mindset, surrounded be people with a similar mindset, unable to think outside the box.

Admittedly I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt about more venal motives. But it doesn't really matter what his motivation is. He's wrong, and needs to be ignored on this and other issues.

jimmyk

new neo

Yes, or even Althouse, though that place has a few more trolls than new neo. But for all of Althouse's frequent cluelessness and moderately liberal instincts, she's tolerated a 80% conservative commentariat that is pretty sharp. New neo is probably 90% conservative, and her thinking seems very much in line with core JOM values. On the other hand, I don't need a blog host who mirrors my opinions, as the commenters are the key thing at all these sites.

In any case, I can't imagine this place becoming inhospitable to Trump supporters, and TM has always had a light touch.

Extraneus

This is outrageous.

When things open back up in the Boston area we're going to have a memorial service for my aunt, who had the virus and died two weeks ago after a stroke. I assume there will be a mass as part of that, and I'm not sure if she's buried yet or if they had to cremate her.

MissMarple2

I think tonight's town hall should be interesting. I was talking about the Michigan governor and her having Walmart prohibit buying vegetable seeds or baby car seats and my daughter said "It sounds like they are afraid someone will shop for FUN."

Now either she is fed up with working at home and no restaurant dining or mall shopping, or she is fed up with me bitching about this.

My friend from whom I reported on Kroger food shortages this morning said that she KNEW that the coding would be messed up due to the financial incentive for the hospitals to code anything as Coronavirus-19 if they could get away with it. Coding was what she did at a large, local hospital until she retired.

There was an ultra-Karen post on medium.com yesterday that has already been taken down by its author because she (a literal Karen, Carena White) was getting so roasted in the comments. It was about how people shouldn't be making bread (except her).

Someone else on medium.com reposted it before it was yanked.

OFGS! What a clueless person! A lot of people are baking because they can't get bread at the grocery. Bakery departments in Kroger have a limited selection, so if you want yeast dinner rolls or coffee cake or yeast doughnuts, odds are you are going to have to make them yourself.

Those boaters are on the ICW going under the Royal Palm Way bridge. Drive further east and you and you hit the Breakers Hotel. Mar-a-Lago is further south just off the Bingham Island RT. 98 bridge. The nice thing about his location it’s sort off the central Palm Beach like Worth Avenue.

At one time we were interested in house on Seabreeze but it was on the corner of Coconut Row, a damn busy thoroughfare and plus it was too small but great location and living.

I've learned that ST GABRIELS PARISH in Hubertus, Wisconsin, the merged parish that I got married at, has decided to allow 10 PEOPLE inside a mammoth Church that Mom and Dad cleaned personally.
I believe TRUMP is to blame. He's divisive, and he wants me to drink Drano. So divisive. My in-laws would have had half the church there as my in-laws have been members for over 40 years. The PRIEST went to bat for them, well actually he just did what THE GOVERNMENT of WISCONSIN allowed. That is some really excellent leadership. BEND OVER. Widower, 4 children all married 4 grand kids and 4 spouses. OOOOOPS, PULL OVER, you're over the 10 person CATHOLIC FUNERAL LIMIT. Very sad. I won't forget how TRUMP did this. Trump was so nasty, that JOE BIDEN told him that stopping flights to and from China was XENOPHOBIC and RACIST. That TRUMP is so divisive. Nancy said C'mon down and party in Chinatown, Warren Wilhelm said, NICE DAY FOR A PARADE. This is very sad for the family. Fortunately of the 10 TICKETS allowed for the FUNERAL, Me, Mrs and Mickey all got a seat........in the 900 seat church. 4 children 4 grandkids, 4 spouses, and Dad. That is more than 10. If you don't comply, you must be punished.
By TRUMP, because he's the problem. Not the DEMOCRAT FULL COMMIES. They're not divisive, and the are so much better at running government.

Old Lurker

Cap'n "40 years in the federal bureaucracy? No wonder the country's so screwed up."

Of course that is true, Cap'n.

But it is also true that unless you own the company, it is never healthy for an organization to be frozen at the top for decade after decade.

Nor is it often possible for a 79 year old to perform well in such a post and for numerous aging related reasons.

So doomed on all fronts.

Also, I'm even more sure that we're going to see huge inflation. All this rationing by stores is a temporary response, and even with that I'm sure prices are higher (no sales). I've already seen things that I bought on Amazon a month or two ago now selling at 20-40% higher. Check this out:

M2Covid

Money growth is through the roof. In a nutshell, inflation is too much money chasing too few goods. We have both now in spades. The post-2008 QEs don't even register compared to this. Maybe they'll bring it back down again, but likely not soon enough. Watch your bank accounts--a dollar won't buy what it used to by a long shot.

OL,

You being an Episcopalian like my family on my Father’s side, I expect you have a family pew with a nice pewter name plate to say so😇

So, tomorrow The Reef restaurant on A1A north of St. Augustine overlooking the ocean is going to open for sit down service - lunch and dinner. Reading their email it appears the Florida Restaurant association in cooperation with the State health department have created a protocol on what can and what cannot be done.

It’s a favorite for lots of people especially full time residents. There is at least one spark of “The Great Return”.

MM, sorry, but it is time for Trump to back off the woe-is-me Fake-News-Bad 24x7 and pick up his sword and stand on the wall to protect our freedoms and liberties from 50 governors and countless town and county leaders who have taken his lead to mean no rules apply to them now that the Constitution has been parked for the time being.

Barbara

jimmyk,

I see your point, and perhaps my criticism of Fauci is too harsh insofar as protocols for him are sacrosanct. President Trump's approach to problem solving is entirely different and I can see how they might be at cross purposes in this instance.

Given the national crisis we assumed we were facing, Fauci should have been willing to entertain other possible solutions that were more timely, less costly and invasive and immediately available. (I understand that South Korea successfully used this treatment.) Instead we got the same thing day after day from Drs. Fauci and Birx which only seemed to alarm the public further. Given what we know now, I think their approach needs to be revisited.


Jane

Trump is divisive. But we tend to like that. At least I do.

Old Lurker

Jimmy "I'm even more sure that we're going to see huge inflation."

I used to think I was SO smart and clever.

Every one of my commercial leases has a CPI Escalation Clause built into it so that my Base rent would always buy me the same amount of goods as the lease terms go on and on.

Silly me. Who ever thought the County Manager could order all of my tenants to close so they can't pay anything, inflation adjusted or not.

This is why I have been harping on the long term if not permanent damage these last two months have done. Common assumptions and traditions and sanctity of contracts had always, until now, formed the baseline for all commerce. We cannot look at the playing field through that lens anymore.

Unless this stops. And unless the miscreants are punished for their overreach. And then the too-broad "laws" these leaders are using changed, and SCOTUS has to reaffirm the continuity of the Bill of Rights under any and all such "situations".

If not, life will go on and so will commerce. But you won't like what it feels like under these new rules.

In accordance with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), we ask that members only use the terms “coronavirus” and “COVID-19” when discussing the current pandemic. Messages that refer to the virus or disease in other ways, particularly in ways that may stigmatize or stereotype a group of people, are subject to removal.

Well, my gasoline generator continues to confound. My local garden center may be an authorized service place for this which has a Tecumseh engine. He suggested I check the oil level. The dipstick on this thing is such a piece of plastic garbage--you have to unscrew it and it has less integrity than a cheap tie wrap. The owner's manual says the full oil capacity is 22 ounces but I didn't know how much was in there due to inability to read the dipstick. Added a couple of ounces at a time, which was very difficult. due to the odd angle of the fill hole. Finally got the the motor to catch but them it died two seconds later. My shoulder is killing me from the number of times I yanked on the starter rope. Can't decide if I flooded it. The carb has a choke with a full choke and halfway setting. Can't decide whether to try to restart with the choke open or closed. Bringing back many unhappy memories of trying to start crappy lawnmowers.

At the end of the Lee Smith interview I linked earlier, they went into the issue of how the zeitgeist spent over three years obsessed with the Russia boogeyman while ignoring China. Congress, media, intelligence, law enforcement, and a large part of the population focused on the Russia hoax, all the while ignoring the real threat right before their eyes. Sick.

the most terrifying drive i've ever made was through the idaho panhandle, at night, in the snow ...

I drove from Jackson Hole to Boise in the late summer daytime a few years ago, rich, stopping overnight at the Sun Valley Lodge (where I saw the funniest thing I think I've ever seen, and I lost the video).

I would never do it again as long as I live. (I believe those were the exact words, minus any profanities, that I laid on my wife when we finally got to the hotel parking lot in Boise.)

They have a big highway, I think 3 or 4 lanes, between Mountain Home and Boise, with a 75 or 80 mph speed limit, but all but one lane was closed for like 30 miles. I don't usually drive that fast, especially with rental cars in unfamiliar places, but there was nowhere to turn off, so I had to either go faster than I wanted to, or have traffic backed up behind me for all that distance and I'm not exaggerating.

Never again.
