I have coffee, a well-stocked pantry, and red wine.

    If you have chocolate along with the above, sounds like you’ll be in good shape!

    My local retailer had El Gato wine $3.99 a bottle with a $3.00 rebate on up to 7 bottles. I have 4 bottles of Malbec and 3 of Cabernet-Merlot.

    They were out of toilet paper.

    I’m wondering if Amazon is going to fill the Subscribe and Save orders or toilet paper that people like me get monthly, or if they’ve forgotten their regular customers with standing orders and filled all the panic orders. Their site currently says they are out of stock on my monthly order, and also they’re out of stock on virtually all TP. I’m expecting it on the 24th.

The Democrats in Congress are sending out emails stating that president Trump is doing nothing and everything that is being done is from them. It was very detailed and went point by point using what Trump has been doing and claiming it as their own even though the Democrats at every step have been trying to make the situation worse by screaming racism with the stopping of flights and trying to add pork to Covid-19 bills and delay them.

I just saw that Trump is speaking on CSPAN. I can’t believe how horrible and what liars the DNC are along with their minions in the MSM. Instead of pulling together they are sabotaging.

Very prudent, especially the coffee.
I have dry roasted peanuts and Masa Ce. Oh, and Jameson. We have relocated to our mountain retreat.
There are people in our valley who raise beef cattle. A whole bunch of calves have just been born. Veal is very tasty. I am thinking veal tacos. Virus fusion cuisine.

Trip to Walmart this morning early just to avoid the crowds. It’s a retirement community and most don’t get out and about until late morning. What’s been bought out: TP, paper towels, bleach, canned soup, cow’s milk, first aid supplies. We live far enough from town and don’t like going there so keep stocked up on all that – God bless Costco!

The hoarding is so strange to me – people who haven’t a clue about how to avoid catching cold and flu – suddenly turning germaphobe and fastidious cleaner – will go back to normal when Gov’t/CDC says it’s over … I suppose it’s comforting to be proactive, however ineffective it is now.

A few months ago I went through the drive thru and was behind a car with a smoker who paid in cash. When the barista gave me my change, the dollar bill smelled like smoke. Whatever creeping crud the driver before me had, was potentially now on me via the money. I imagine there’s little in our culture more common and filthy than money.

Had to laugh – one of the many corporate communications I’ve gotten about the Covid 19 precautions they’re taking, was from my bank. No, they’re not washing or otherwise disinfecting the cash. Just hand sanitizer dispensers at the door.

It’s a miracle stupidity and shortsightedness doesn’t kill us more often than it does.

Good move on having all the CEOs making a comments on their commitments to the process.

    It kinda bothers me that at these news conferences, they have to repeating what they have already done to work on the pandemic. But on the other hand, the press won’t honestly report it and the Dems will still take credit for it.

      How many people have realized that their
      barber, hair stylist, and even manicurists
      have to have more “certification” and state licensing than “journalists” and “reporters”……

    TY Neo… I didn’t have the heart to watch…. I thought my husband made a mistake when he told me about the markets..

    Paul in reply to Neo. | March 13, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    That’s great, but you’re gonna get whiplash if you watch that too closely for awhile. There is no way the markets are getting out of this unscathed… too much supply-chain disruption, too much demand disruption. Corporate profits are going to take a big hit and that’s going to depress share prices for awhile. We’re headed into a bear market. Hopefully we don’t see a chain-reaction type of thing which really throws the economy into the shitter. All the prog cheer-leading for chaos and losses certainly isn’t helping matters.

I’m from Florida. We have panic shopping every few years when a hurricane threatens.

I’m not sure it ever did anyone any good. In general, the worst damage is done by flooding, and I’m not sure supplies help.

People are going to be sorry when they get bleach all over their clothes.

Love how President Trump is telling those Hacks

    Honestly, I think he’s either got a problem with all the pollen or something else is going on. He sounds stuffed up.

    I’ve been sneezing, all the plants are starting to green here in Georgia.

      notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 13, 2020 at 5:10 pm

      Stress, work, and allergies.

      Yesterday my nasal passages were tightening up as I did a lot of talking and my sneezes almost are a sonic boom.

Im surprised Democrats arent claiming Trump will cancel elections in November yet? ??

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to mailman. | March 13, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    Can we Troll Dem on that?

    The DEMS already postponed elections this spring in Louisiana.

Two points, great timing on this to own the news cycle. Nice to see the opposite of Bernie or Biden in approaching the problems.

Democrats naturally hate CEO’s and big corporations and businesses big and small. PDJT knows that’s where all the innovation and heavy lifting occurs. NOT in bloated, bureaucratic big government agencies. PDJT is developing the model which will become the standard in facing future threats. Previous administrations, when faced with crisis, usually threw their hands up in the air and said “This is the best government can do!” PDJT is destroying the old, unworkable norms and showing everyone how great America really is and can be.

Jay/Gavin and the other governors have Trump over a barrel and are going to milk all the federal dollars they can out of this.

The problem is the benefit for these ass clowns.

    You can bet Newsom won’t spend the money on actual disease mitigation, as that would be racist, just like he didn’t spend the gas tax on what it was supposed to be spent on.

If I run out of TP I can always wipe my ass on a Democrat.
