    I hope this business of hoarding and scalping doesn't go on for too long. I remember that after Obama was elected president you couldn't buy a lousy box of 22s-anywhere! Some of these a$$holes would get inside information as to when a new shipment was coming in and be there when the doors opened the next morning. They would then but up everything and if you came in an hour later, there would be nothing left. The only cures are either the crisis goes away or the stores put in a very strict rationing policy.

    To all who live in United States, right now we are experiencing a new era, it is 2020 and we are heading into the 20's of our century , I truly believe that this virus is a Omen sign of that of which the next dictator we arise soon !.

    Get ready for some brilliant man of military status to enter politics and he will speak of the Jews who run society, he will call these Jews out in public speeches and you will see a genocide of the Jewish people in America.

    I know this is going to happen.

    You'll read about it in a history book and remember where you were that day.

    You should wear a Waffen SS camouflage uniform with a 13th Hansjar division Fez hat and carry a military police baton ☺️

    Forget the toilet paper, stock up on tinfoil to make hats out of.

    And I thought the media was beating this up...How does a virus usher in any new leader? There may be marshal law imposed with a military man leading...this would be until the "crisis" is over. Sounds like you are looking for any sign to back up your yearning...Those poor Jews getting clobbered again...Are the rest of us so stupid and impotent that the Jews are responsible for everything bad? And I'm sure you aren't talking about the whole world as there are relatively small groups of Jews or none at all in the bulk of the world.
    Heres a radical idea...Let the Jews run the world...whats the worst that can happen? The most Compassionate person in history (gave his life for everyone) was a Jew...The most insightful man in history was a Jew...What are you afraid of?
    Jews wont run tomorrows society...Artificial intelligence will. This new era you talk of will be different indeed...the next 40 years may see time travel, aliens, matter transporters, robot companions and a virtual world you may never want to leave...big things indeed...History does not have an answer to what lay ahead of us.

    watched an elderly couple try to use debit card at gas station pump.
    listening to the heavily accented cashier try to troubleshoot with 1952 was hilarious.

    I was chuckling as you described me in your last post. I use the self checkout, but have an employee do it for me.

    No new news that I have to share except the Mayor of Hoboken NJ closed all the bars after there was a fight. It was reported in the other forum I'm in like this:

    There was a barfight and somebody got hurt and it took half an hour for an ambulance to come because all the other Hobokenesians were calling 911 about the virus, which they didn't have. So the mayor said f**k this s**t, everybody go to your rooms. And here we are.

    ..some time ago there was an event that was a million times worse than this Virus.....its affects continued long after the event ended .....
    60 million dead
    millions displaced/wounded
    cities destroyed
    starvation
    this event was called WW2
    ....and the Greatest Generation lived through it..they were tough...they even lived through the Great Depression --BEFORE WW2.......sure there was some panicking, but not like you see today
    ...Russians lived through starvation/hundreds of thousands of dead BEFORE WW2 even started ...
    etc
    caps for emphasis only

    If you thought I was being histrionic or wild in my predictions earlier in this thread, consider this modeling estimate by the CDC:

    [​IMG]


    I suspect that changes in behavior and governmental interventions will drive this estimate toward the lower end of the range. But that may depend on how we handle it.

    On the bright side, it sounds as though there has been some success with some anti-retroviral meds and chloroquine. Both the Chinese and Australians are reporting some success with this cocktail. That might significantly help reduce the demands on hospitals. Hope these trials continue to show promise.

    HIV and anti malerial treatments seem to ‘cure’ or kill the virus...
