White House tells airlines it may suspend all China-US flights amid coronavirus outbreak

United Airlines, which has the most service of the U.S. airlines to Hong Kong and mainland China with about a dozen daily flights, on Tuesday announced it would cancel dozens of flights next month to Hong Kong and mainland China as the outbreak worsens. The Chicago-based airline said it has experienced a “significant decline in demand for travel to China.” United and its rivals Delta and American are waiving cancellation and change fees for travelers booked to China.

Wow, a “significant decline in demand for travel to China.”

No surprise there.

What surprises me is that there is ANY demand.

It’s sad that a human being was killed. It’s sad that another human being has to carry that burden for the rest of his life. It’s sad that there was an injury presumed from “friendly fire”.

It is good that criminals are called to account.

I’d rather they all be afraid of the honest citizen than the other way around.

Politicians and bureaucrats want to disarm the people for their own nefarious purposes.

(I’ve given up the idea that they are honestly trying to make the country safer. Honest but mistaken. In the light of their continued insistence in complete disarmament to extent they talk about door to door search and siezure as if was even possible. They can’t even disarm criminals. Or keep drugs out of their prisons. So what is their motivation if it’s not to put people into camps?)

Seems like the Virginia “Democratic” legislature has just “poked the proverbial tiger with a stick”. “I fear all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.” — apocryphal quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto played by Soh Yamamura in the movie ‘Tora Tora Tora’

Μολὼν λαβέ … … from my cold dead hand!
