I don’t doubt the seriousness of the virus to the elderly and unhealthy and obviously it’s ability to spread is unreal. I can’t help but to feel there’s a hidden agenda behind this event but hey, I trust no one. A trip through the gtocery store lastnight and some of the random items I’ve seen wiped out reminds me of the book “Alas Babylon.” What’s some of the ridiculous things related to the virus that you’ve seen or heard? Closures that are hard to make sense of?

1. Florida closes all state campgrounds for 60 days. Most if not all campgrounds are state parks open for day use. Day use of these parks will remain available 8-5. I guess only campers in the dark can spread the virus.

2. Schools are closed until April 15. I get that, yet Teachers are expected to return to work next week. Daycares are currently still open but tentatively to close next week. So in my house my wife will go back to work next week after they said to stay home, but our boys won’t have a daycare forcing me who works pretty much 100% socially isolated and I’m the one who makes the money to stay home and watch the boys. Online learning is how they plan to finish up the school year. That’s fine for high school like my wife teaches but how’s that gonna work with a kindergartner?

Many including myself feel the same. Lots of theories out there.

It's gonna get much worse before this is over. The economic impact will be really bad.

I live in a foodie city with many restaurants and in a region that is heavily dependent on a 9 week summer season. If this keeps up many restaurants won't survive and if it extends into summer, it will be a long winter next year. I hope all these closures and social distancing get the thing under control fast. I was just starting what was going to be a busy spring and the phone has gone dead.

Every day something new here. Yesterday, the email was "several" students now tested positive but no specific number was given (work at a college).

This is still so new and we are all trying to get our feet under the lock downs, kids home, etc. My prediction, within a week, with no sports for distraction and all coronavirus and its all Trumps fault all day long on the TV, get ready for peoples tempers to flair.

If we get control of this before it becomes devastating the conspiracy seekers and Dems will say it was all a hoax and blown out of proportion.
If we end up with a high body count the Dems will blame it on Trump for not moving quick enough.

Read the book STATE OF FEAR by Michael Crichton. It is fiction, but the final 50 pages or so are references. Crichton suggests that the general populous is more easily governed when there is some enormous perceived threat or fear.

In the Cold War we feared the Soviets. In the 1980's we feared aerobic instructors in "leg warmers". At the turn of the century, Y2K had most people all wound-up. "Global Warming" has been the fear-mongering topic of the press for 10+ years. Now its COVID-19. The "press" loves to build up a topic to global fear and panic levels. Before the 1990's news broadcasts rarely had words like "catastrophic" "devastation" "cataclysm" "disaster" "scourge" "melt-down" etc. Now these words are part of our every-day new stories.

All this and a 5.7 magnitude earthquake here in Utah this morning. WHAT IS THE DEAL??

-Their biggest weapon isn’t a bomb but rather fear and mass hysteria.

-Our biggest weapon is the power of the masses.

-They’re instilling fear and mass hysteria and taking away our ability to gather in a mass.

One of my 4 year old son’s favorite movie is “.Bugs Life.” If you don’t have a 4 yo in your life I suggest watching it.

In Charlotte, NC people were calling 911 because they had the sniffles.

Also, yellow pollen is starting to fall some most people will have the sniffles.

Boat dealers must be pretty uncomfortable with their new spring inventory rolling in. Is Nautique still running 24/7?

Or Tuberculosis

Or Swine Flu


We could probably go on all day with stats from other illnesses vs Corona. Maybe Corona is a convenient with election year? A lot of Americans will be hurting come November and there will be a lot of misleading promises that will become broken.

It is nuts. Makes you wonder if there is more to it? What would it be like if it were something like ebola?

We have a great gun store in Maine called Kittery Trading Post. Big store with a large gun department on the 2nd floor. Supposedly, there was a line out the door yesterday for people buying guns and ammo.

If you have some time on your hands watch the Joe Rogan podcast with Michael Osterholm Joe Rogan

The conversation is a little over a week old so some of the info is not up to date but it's a great discussion and very insightful to why were in such a mess right now and what needs to happen to prevent the next one.

Yes that helps, Oddly enough I've found a youtube channel called cruising the cuts. It's about an english guy cruising the 2000 miles of english channels on his narrow boat 2 miles per hour at a time.    It puts me to sleep in about 15 minutes, so if you're having trouble getting to sleep give it a try, it's awesome, LOL

God I hope that Peloton model finally dropped a few Lb's. I can't believe they put her on tv looking like that! And that husband of hers.......!

Funny....She looked about the same after a year of her fitness "journey".

Gary...I hope that McHenry Cty gives us a break on their confiscatory taxes are due this year. I may have some extra coin if thats the case. Are you McHenry Cty at your waterfront home(s)? Just drove by your place the other day. I see the security guards are still out front. Gonna need them these days. I hear "personal security devices" (guns) are in high demand.

WOW, I listened to that interview. That is some scary stuff. Going to take 8-12 weeks to get through this one. Very interesting stuff.

It's been an interesting ride so far and its mind boggling to see the reaction of folks. TP???? WTF? Of course the Airline industry has taken a huge hit and all week at the worlds busiest airport here in ATL its been almost as quiet as 9-11.. A walk out to the back porch and you'd see planes lining up for TO. Now it's something out of end of the world movie when you have one airplane taking off every 5-10 minutes not every 45 secs.
Having moved to the northside of ATL the drive through town has been a breeze on the way home. Normally stop and go in midtown for a couple miles is now slowing to 60-65. It's been nice getting home as quick as I get to work as nobody is on the road at 4:00am. DAL is offering 30. 60 and 90 day LOA to anyone who wants it paid medical.. All the OWP off without pay that you want as well. Quite a few guys are jumping on that. It all seems surreal as 2 weeks ago it was all the OT and DT you wanted as TechOPS was an Engine Repair Machine and working so many engines of our own and everyone else's. Since this Pandemic arrived we're parking 300 airplanes, Sr. Mgmnt has forgone pay for 6 months, Local mgrs are taken a 25% cut and obviously all OT has been cut off. GUYS this is freaking insane.

Keep up the humor as we all need it but also keep the small business owner in mind. They are REALLY gonna suffer from this and are gonna need our help to make it. Some of them are our own members here. Alan comes to mind so be sure to help him out and buy a few CCFan shirts from Action Screen to replace one or two that you've worn out. Might I even suggest you forgo the discount offer that Action Screen is offering on your order. Support your locals guys too and order take out from the establishment so when we get through all this you can go back and eat in. One other thing...…..

Quit HOARDING THE TOILET PAPER!!! I know many of y'all are full of it but....C'MON MAN!
