"Bob Palmgren tried to be polite - at first. He told a customer he had to wear a mask inside his restaurant, RJ's Bob-Be-Que Shack in Mission, Kansas. The customer, a man in his forties in a Make America Great Again (MAGA) cap, had flashed a gun and said that he was exempt from a state-wide mask requirement. He said that he could explain the exemption in the law to Mr Palmgren.

Mr Palmgren, a former marine, told the customer that he was not interested in continuing the conversation. Mr Palmgren was not swayed by the customer's gun, either. 'Coronavirus doesn't care if you have a gun or not," said Mr Palmgren, describing his conversation with the customer. 'I said: 'Now get the hell out of here.'"

Frightening isn't it.

It's been weaponized by both China and to a lesser, but equally as cynical extent by the Democrats.

China deliberately seeded the world with the virus. That's an act of biological war.

im sure you'll be the first up on the front lines.
I rephrased that to read: '' It's been weaponized by both China and to a lesser, but equally as cynical extent by the Democrats.''

We're all now on the front line, the disease is seeded and continually seeded or so it seems. Coming back in Australia and elsewhere.

I can't keep track of all the nutty conspiracy theorists. Is that Q Anon or Zero Hedge?

Anyway, back to reality. This might be of interest to a few of you:

It's not a conspiracy theory, it's fact: China put Wuhan into quarantine, whilst maintaining international travel from Wuhan. Thus, seeding the world with their virus. I know at the time liberals were busy seeking out recent arrivals from China to kiss and hug to show they're weren't racist. Neglect, willful ignorance or deliberate intention?

Kissing and hugging? Were they? I only remember orientals being told to go home or everyone evacuating a subway car if a slightly yellow person sneezed.

Then as it progressed to Iran and Italy the racism progressed and now everyone has it so it's just recurring waves of anti-Brazilian, anti-Romanian, anti-brown, anti-X prejudices.

My father told me about this. The ship with the blue raincoat is from the US. The ship with the red raincoat is from Canada.

Explanation A - The population is higher in the US than in Canada.

Explanation B - Don't know which day this photograph is taken but perhaps government subsidies are keeping most Canadians at (pointless) work and not out sightseeing.

Explanation C - Americans don't give a toss about social distances, queuing, or infections. Canadians are a docile law abiding people who still have HM the Queen as head of state.

There was a Chinese guy from Wuhan in the middle of Milan with a sign saying give him a hug and the mayor of Milan was hugging Chinese people in lifts to show solidarity and prove that he was not racist.

Something don't add up here, Commissioner Dreyfus.
Was it the liberals kissing all the chinamen, the chinaman needing a hug, or the socialist mayor of Milan hugging so ever passionately?
Did you hear this, from that youtube man with the round glasses, who evidently knows everything about the China virus, Burisma and Ghislaine Maxwell? Or was it this odd fellow with the long greasy hair, and the hollow chest in a leather jacket, singing you his sweet sweet songs?

Hasn't dated very well, has it...


But I do stand corrected, it was the Mayor of Florence.

Any evidence at all that that Chinese dude had been in Wuhan province in the past 14 days?

Wouldn't Donald Trump be the biggest weapon of COVID? By fumbling around for 4 months, he's essentially maximized it's killing power, particularly on the subset of poor Americans he loves so much.

Any evidence he wasn't?

Any evidence, that the man had active corona?
Not at the time, he might have got it later, and some commentators allege that he did get it.

If he hadn't got active corona, do you think it was appropriate behavior the end of February/beginning of March to be hugging a stranger? Or was it morally appropriate and correct exactly because he was from China?

Moot points: the issue is that it was inappropriate to be hugging anyone in the street with a potential Medieval plague on the way in.

Well that’s a whole lot of backtracking from your earlier post saying that he was an agent of the PRC government deliberately spreading the virus in a bioterror act of war.

No, I never said or implied he was an agent of the CCP.

What I said was that the virus has been weaponized and had been seeded globally by the CCP i.e. locking down Wuhan from the rest of China, whilst keeping international travel open and calling out any nation contemplating travel restrictions from China as racist.

Meanwhile, in Texas, it appears that hospitals are going to have to start deciding who gets treated and who doesn't:

Sounds like France four months ago.

It’s not public health OR the economy. Neither is it public health OR schools re-opening. We fix public health and the economy and schools will re-open and stay open. But we will have to have a uniform response with military precision. Our current half response won’t work. We can’t put out half the fire. It will rise again.

“Life must go on” is a term only the privileged can afford to use. By making this choice, you are taking it from those most vulnerable.

I have two thoughts around this. When things reopen here I should go all out and take advantage of everything because you know everything will close again.

Or alternatively I should just give up because the thought of a normal life is as transient as a desert mirage.

The air bridges are already closing for all but non-essential travel. Those intrepid holidaymakers from the UK are going straight into a 14 day quarantine on their return.
