This could lead to a political discussion which we all know is verboten here  :)

I hope it doesn't lead to a political discussion. It's more a humanitarian issue.

I'd also like to talk about the scourge of international air travel which I have deplored for over 40 years. Let's face it - the rapid spread of the virus is directly and mainly caused by rampant tourism. And that's not the only horror caused by air travel. Consider that each long flight burns around 180,000 litres of fuel etc.

Defend that!

I was ready to blame the Chinese for their consumption and handling of bats, a well known vector animal, but I am partial to a ham sandwich, and as Jules once said, the pig is a 'filthy ****ing animal.'

Did I mention filthy cruise ships.

 

What sort of an economy has to rely on tourism? Whenever I hear someone say, "It's good for the economy." I substitute the word 'greed' for 'the economy'.

I've pretty much sworn off cruises for life after this whole calamity. Mind you, I was never crazy about them to start with.

It seems like if a virus doesn't get you, some kind of horrible bout of botulism will get you first.

And,  our American friends, don't forget to pick up another gun at one of several of your local corner gun shops. Orderly queues please.

Waiting on my FFL to call so I can pick up my new H&K 416 rifle.

I've got a horrible feeling this thing is going to hit the USA like a bomb.

 

Stay safe you crazy individuals. Well; you might not all be crazy but there is at least one crazy individual.

 

Happy Easter!

Once again Ted gets it right...unfortunately.

 

Is that idiot still in charge?
