  1. I’m certainly not laughing at a pan-panic that cost me my job. Are you upset that, at this trend line, we’ll be raising people from the dead mid-May ?
  2. Yeah, that’s what I’m saying. The virus was carried over 5G by Russian bots. What I’m really saying: first it was going to kill 11 million Americans, which thankfully gave away to a “saner” 2.2 million. Then it was 240,000 IF we did everything right. Then it dropped to 100,000 (but they don’t want us to forget this number. Last week it was lowered to 82,000 then three days later to 60,000. Rumor is dropping to 50,000. At every juncture people like me were caricatured as “truthers” who’d have blood on their hands for raising questions. NEVER FORGET.
  3. Trump’s second-biggest mistake was not sticking with his and Fauci’s earlier “not a big deal.”
  4. Trump’s worst mistake, BY FAR, is granting space to “experts” who’ve frightened us into holes with the specter of something like Andromeda Strain.
  5. On florid mortality exaggerations ... https://slate.com/technology/2020/03/coronavirus-mortality-rate-lower-than-we-think.html More on wild exaggerations ... https://www.cato.org/blog/covid-19-deaths-incredible-who-estimates AGAIN, not minimizing the present virus. I myself am heeding precautions and sheltering in place.
  6. For those who haven’t gone into febrile seizure: I am not saying that Coronavirus is a hoax. I’m not saying I won’t get it. And not even denying that it could kill me. I’m simply asking why we’re driving the economy into the ground, in wild-eyed terror, when still deadlier viruses did not occasion such. Collapse of the Italian economy ? It was teetering pre-virus.
  7. My numbers were off. Last flu season 647,000 were hospitalized and 61,200 died. I didn’t hear anything like that on the news. And for some odd reason, we kept eating out, European-style. And stranger still, we kept building skyscrapers. Oh, and my portfolio nearly went through the roof.
  8. Interesting that you reference the two estates that are running us into the ground, government and media.
  9. Fiasco in the Making ... https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/17/a-fiasco-in-the-making-as-the-coronavirus-pandemic-takes-hold-we-are-making-decisions-without-reliable-data/ Motality not markedly higher ... https://centerforinquiry.org/video/discussing-the-coronavirus-outbreak-with-dr-paul-offit/ Flu kills upwards of 650,000 a year ...
  10. The question has manifestly NOT been answered over and over again. But here’s an opportunity for you.
  11. In 2019 flu season killed over 50,000. Why weren’t millions cast out of work and the economy driven into the ground for that ?
  12. My point is that when you’re right, you’re right. A full-blown panic has brought buying stuff we don’t need to a grinding halt. In very large part, our economy is built on stuff we don’t need.
  13. Libertarian-bashers always amuse me. Laws are for other people.
  14. San Franciscans not handling socialism well.
  15. The reason I know it’s not going to be so bad: Jim Rogers says it’s going to be really bad.
  16. So long as this blows through, in weeks time, I foresee pent-up demand, the opposite of panic, taking hold. FYI: this is coming from a person who just got laid off.
  17. Certainty will return as soon as the virus runs its course.
  18. I predict enormous, pent-up demand - the opposite of panic - if the virus burns through in a matter of weeks.
  19. Just caught a snippet on the news. Seems an affordable housing advocacy group is trying to stop this because it’s “too expensive” ?
  20. I’m not. Affordability and jobs are hipster-hip.
