Coronavirus

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

What's everyone's prediction about how this thing is gonna pan out?

Do you think there's going to be some massive societal changes?

This event is beginning to feel on par with 9/11. Maybe even surpass it in terms of impact. Maybe it's still too soon to tell, but I feel as if nobody really has any idea and therein lies some of the anxiety.
Or all of it. If we knew what was going to happen,
most of us would be worried about that, and the
rest would still be over at LNFMedRen.com, basing
our conjectures on the fact of HIV embedded in COV19.

Lost sense of smell may be peculiar clue to coronavirus infection

Massive societal change is needed to stop this thing, California took a big step tonight.

Unfortunately, Numbnuts is going to revert to form, he's already running scared of the Dow and a recession.


Also, not happy with the MSM coverage of his goof ass "press conferences". It's going to be the governors that make the difference.

Roosevelt: "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself"
Churchill: “Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Truman: "The buck stops here."
Kennedy: "We choose to go to the moon..."
R. Kennedy: "Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."
Trump: "I take no responsibility."
Trump: Tweets.

When you know the President* is lying, and you know very few if any have the nerve to contradict him with the truth, being afraid is a survival strategy.

So the entire global intelligentsia is arrayed against him and his policies,
but that only serves to proves him right, or righter than he has ever been?

Not long ago, before the advent of this virus, I had posted somewhere here (I thought it was in the Global warming thread, but can't find the post I am thinking of and don't know how to search for it) I posted a comment that I believe the cause of the end of human civilization will be some killer virus that hadn't been seen before and which cannot be stopped. And as an aside, back in the 80's the other guys at work used to call me Nostra(my name) comparing me to Nostradamus on account of more than a few predictions I made about things that would happen at the place we worked. I wasn't too much ahead of this current scene, but still.......

I read a story this morning that trump saw this same "cure worse than the the disease" nonsense on Fox when a guy named Steve Hilton said those exact words....so trump really does get his advice from the wingnuts on his propaganda channel. What a stupid goddamn moron this raccoon eyed juvenile is. Beyond belief.

... Now, Berry said, he literally cannot smell the coffee.

“Even with a clear nose, I just realized I couldn’t smell the food that I was cooking, and I couldn’t taste the food that I was making,” said Berry, a tattoo artist based in Orlando, Florida. He was cooking a plantain dish with onions and vinegar, yet he could not smell it....
According to Kelly and Ryan at the CDC, bizarrely appearing from their own homes, curry and garlic are other foods that this happens with. If this holds up as a symptom, good list of items with which to check oneself. Fwiw, I can still smell the coffee and curry, not that I mix them.

I use garlic salt (only Lawry's) on my salads and I will sprinkle it on burgers and steaks before grilling them. Also use garlic cloves in the marinade I make for kebobs and have done so for decades. I've not noticed any loss of taste, smell, or seen any vampires. I'm satisfied.

I keep a 5 oz shaker of Tajin spice powder handy. The ingredients are basically round red chili, sea salt, dehydrated lime/citric acid. It's got a distinctive aroma. I figure as long as I can detect that, I'm OK. Hecho en Mexico.

As Trump edges closer to trading American lives for 401k's, a possible explanation emerges.

I feel that the best thing for Gaetz to do is to keep wearing his gas mask for the remainder of his term. He should even wear it in the shower.

The music festival I had booked for may has been cancelled. They're issuing refunds. I'm cancelling my trip to the bay area in April, the show I was going to attend out there is also cancelled.

Wild times.

Looks like the city of Gville has instituted an 11pm - 6am downtown curfew, and falls park has been closed for the time being.

I'd imagine next up is gonna be the swamp rabbit trail and some state parks.
