  • The Y2K-0rona Bug (Saturbray)

    In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians 1:7 KJV It is looking more and more like I am wright and the entire intelligentsia is dead wrong about the Y2K-0rona bug. It is more like a bug and less like a plague than the media has been fooling us with. Now if they would allow us the malaria preventative drug chloroquine phosphate while you load up with zinc, we could get back to work and begin enjoying cheap gas and interest rates to pull the entire world out...

    I'm completely astounded at the lack of outrage at China. Instead of being righteously indignant that our coolecrive health is threatened and our that economy is sinking we're worried about being labeled racist for accurately pointing out the origin of "Covid-19". It's the China virus or Wuhan virus. Either will do. We don't ever call epidemics by a scientific name but place if origin. We have been cowed into changing the rightful name of the virus to further insulate who is at fault for this seemingly unending threat and that is the Chinese Communist Party. Yes, it's the Communist Chinese...

    me | April 3, 2020 | me
    I have a shaving mirror. One side normal magnification, the other side 7X mag. It sits on the edge of my soaking tub, under the window. Yesterday, the blinds were down, but the slats were horizontal, allowing the maximum light to come in. The window faces west. This morning, I flipped the slats to closed (vertical). The 7X side had been facing the window. The mirror had concentrated the sun's ray such that a TWO INCH HOLE HAD BEEN NEATLY CARVED/BURNED CLEAN THROUGH THE BLIND SLAT! Wish I could post a pic of it, but apparently, one can only post...

    If it says "Made in China" I'm not buying...and no, that's not racist. The CCP are an enemy, they don't even care about their own people. The CCP must be crushed, so long as their economy continues to grow it won't happen. We have far too many products related to our national security coming from there. Buy American/British first...then elsewhere - just not China.
  • Wuhan Coronavirus: Propylene Glycol as Possible Therapy for Eradication of RTI and Prevention of Complications [vanity]

    Wuhan Coronavirus: Propylene Glycol as Possible Therapy for Eradication of RTI and Prevention of Complications It was quite some time ago when I came across a paper about study of the use of propylene glycol which I interpolated could be used for respiratory tract infections (RTI), including influenza. Reading about the severe cases for people who are immune compromised and/or with underlying health conditions dying from complications of Wuhan Coronavirus (the majority of deaths) prompted me to revisit the paper (for good reason). I was dismissive of the research at the time due to its use to defend the vaping...

    My aunt was upset this morning, she says that the media is giving Trump too much credit. She despises the President and says that if Peter Jennings, former ABC anchorman was still alive, the coverage would have been more soothing and she believes that Jennings and ABC would have been more combative towards Trump. My aunt is very anti-Trump. She served in the U.S. Army. Very, very militaristic and angry woman. What do you think?
  • Any labor experts here?

    04/01/2020 7:10:47 PM PDT · by LouAvul · 20 replies
    Hypothetical. An employee is paid every two weeks. He worked for two weeks before his first paycheck. His checks are always two weeks in arrears. His employer tells him his (the employee's) hours are getting cut in half and that his salary will be halved accordingly. However, the following paycheck followed two weeks of full time work. The employee is owed a full paycheck since he hasn't even started working part time yet. Is this illegal? Can the employer simply take the employee's legally earned wages?

    Need an escape from the corona virus blues? Do you have the self isolation blues? In need of some good laughs and dark humor? You need some of Ruth's ultra sassy dialog? Are other family members getting on your nerves as they have been laid off from their jobs? Then tune into Ozark via NetFlix. Season three stands alone OK. If you like it you can circle back and see the first two seasons. Gov't workers are home bound, getting paid for doing pretend work via tele-commuting. But Ozark is your private sector bonus and there for the rest of...

    The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1 KJV President Trump let your people go. America would rather die with its boots on than hiding from an invisible killer. There is nothing worse than watching your business and country being destroyed, so let America go back to work and fill the morgues if necessary. I would rather be dead than seeing America brought to its knees by China. It is time to call a spade a spade, this is a direct...

    I have been working on a knowledge base of topics related to prepping and SHTF situations. It is geared towards making people more self sufficient with topics ranging from unarmed self defense to small space gardening to how to sew your own clothes. I'm one of those types of people who believe that we are going to go out with a whimper, not a bang, so there is a lot of content on how to do your own repairs, build your own stuff and live a more frugal lifestyle. In order to get access you need to send me a...

    Isn't it time for W to come off the sidelines, forgive the nickname for Jeb! and help Trump manage the politics of the moment, the hatred and vitriol aimed at him by, in some cases former members of his administration? Much like 9/11, this is a moment when the Nation must come together. We already know the left will never relent. Where are you, Mr. President?
  • Diarrhea = Coronavirus???

    03/30/2020 4:54:38 PM PDT · by dangus · 78 replies
    You might want to practice VERY CAREFUL self-quarantine if you've got diarrhea, if I'm right in the way I'm connecting news stories. (You might say that's a "big if," but from predicting the 2010 landslide to the election of Pope Francis to the peaking of China's and then South Korea's coronavirus, I think my track record on FR is pretty good. On the other hand, if some sizeable portion of the coronavirus tests being used are serological, I'm prepared to say "oooooops.") See, a study from the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that of 200 studied patients in Hubei, 50%...

Up to 200,000 lives could be lost to the virus! I do not want to hear what a COMMENTATOR wants tell me what the President said this evening. I want to hear what the PRESIDENT wants to tell me himself. VENTING.

    Since the last day to complete the Census is tomorrow, I was curious if there was a census tracking website and I came across this one. With one day left, the responses seem very low. Keep in mind this is an on-line census so there should be no delays because the completed forms are 'in the mail'. It looks to me this on-line census didn't produce the higher responses than mail-in forms. There are going to be a lot of follow-up visits required but do they have the staff even without the current coronavirus crisis. Trouble ahead for congressional redistricting...
