Rhode Island Police to Hunt Down New Yorkers Seeking Refuge

Rhode Island has just over 200, and it has begun an aggressive campaign to keep the virus out and New Yorkers contained, over objections from civil liberties advocates.

Raimondo, a Democrat, said she had consulted lawyers and said while she couldn’t close the border, she felt confident she could enforce a quarantine.

HQ AM/PM

Thursday, Mar 26, 2020Not to be overwhelming first thing in the morning, but I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you. The good news? Today is Thursday, which means we’re pretty damn close to the weekend! The bad news? Today would have been MLB Opening Day, and does the weekend even really count in quarantine anyway?

I doubt that any of the “sports” empires have any debt, so are at little risk of bankruptcy.  Not so for other businesses or individuals.  I think a lot of places will NOT reopen and individuals will be ruined for life.

Like those of the Great Depression, I think that people will be “scarred” forever.

Maybe some good will come out of this disaster.  Like thrift, Dave Ramsey advocates no debt .  Like savings, to have enough in your savings to enable you to continue living at your “burn rate”.  Like being prepared, the Mormons keep a year in their pantry.

One can only hope.

EconomicPolicyJournal.com: Gold Bars in Short Supply Due to Coronavirus Disruption

Europe’s largest gold refineries have struggled to keep up because of the region’s widening shutdown. Valcambi, Pamp and Argor-Heraeus are all based in the Swiss region of Ticino, near the border with Italy. Local authorities announced in recent days that production in the area was to be temporarily halted.

Gold in short supply is even going to be even “shorter”!

Boeing wants a bailout, But without giving equity to the government in exchange

Probably a bluff. (From The Wall Street Journal) “I don’t have a need for an equity stake,” Mr. Calhoun (Boeing CEO) said in a Tuesday interview on Fox Business Network. “If they forced it, we’d just look at all the other options, and we have got plenty.”

GOVERNACIDE: Vin Suprynowicz » Who stood to gain by panicking the nation & shutting down our entire economy, over an epidemic that will likely kill fewer Americans than the ‘regular old flu’?

I believe we saw something highly significant today: The Let’s-Trash-Trump-and-His-Economy press are reporting today’s incident as though TRUMP did something wrong. When Trump announced Chloroquine works both to prevent and to ameliorate the symptoms of coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the massively commercially compromised National Institutes of Health promptly responded that it “hasn’t been clinically tested,” at which point Trump backed down and said it was “just his opinion.”

But guess what? The expert wasn’t right. It’s Trump who was right. Fauci is part of the conflicted, sold-out mob that moves endlessly through the revolving door between the NIH/CDC and Big Pharma, all anxious to create big profits by peddling a new vaccine (even “free” vaccines can be billed to and paid for by the gubbimint – including the ones that are only 40 percent efficacious and can cause more harm than good, which is a lot of them.)

DJT45 WAS RIGHT!

And, no one remembers that.

Sure he’s wrong a lot.  Maybe even he tweets a “whopper” from time to time.  (I think he uses Twitter to engage his opponents, like a cat chasing a red dot.)

But, the media is running “the sky is falling” 24/7.

I prefer a more reasonable, factual, less panicked media.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: MI Gov. Whitmer Criticizes GOP for Failing to Ban Church Gatherings

Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) said on “Fox News Sunday” that Republicans were to blame for an exemption in her order that allows places of worship to gather in groups of 50 or more during the coronavirus outbreak.

Guest host John Roberts asked, “One thing that kind of puzzles me is that you have limited groups of people to 50 or fewer yet, there is an exemption for places of worship. Why would a place of worship be any less likely to transmit diseases in a larger gathering than another place?”

Perhaps some one should refresh their memory about the First Amendment.  You know the one about “freedom of religion”.  The Gooferment has no power to regulate churches.

Argh!
