      @ eaglesoars:

      Home Depot also closing early now. Solano County went into lockdown last night. I had to go to Raley’s to pick up a phone in order. Of 25 items, I got four. Tomatoes, bananas, coffee creamer and a frozen generic pizza. No bread on the shelves, no meat.

      I don’t suppose it occurs to these people that if you just did your NORMAL damn shopping, there would be enough for everyone. I think people have figured out that they don’t need bottled water, though. Pallets of it all over the store.

      They apparently got in a shipment of paper towels. I’m almost out so I grabbed a Brawny 8-pack. Sure enough, one asshat was loading four into his cart. I pointed to the sign that said “One Per Customer, Please.” He was very disappointed that he was going to have to leave some for someone else.

      Geez, welcome to Caracas, California.

      @ The Barbarian:

      I just got back from my local Giant. Almost completely stocked, I saw one aisle w/bare shelves I forgot what the items on that aisle were. And lemme tell ya – people aren’t self-isolating either. Traffic is lighter, probably because people are working from home, but the grocery store had a perfectly normal parking lot and customer load. The frozen veggie section was lean, but the fresh produce was totally stocked. Even found my beloved baby potatoes. Chicken sheet pan dinner tonite!

      Wrapped up my interview for the day about 30 minutes ago. The original position was a loan servicing CSR, but that position was filled so they interviewed me for loan servicing collections instead.

      I think things went pretty well, and I should know a response by mid next week.

      They didn’t say anything about pay or benefits, but since it is a business dress environment, you’d at least expect that they would pay reasonably well. Fingers crossed!

      I saw on the Twitter that there’s a 100% cure, peer reviewed, Didier Raoult’s sharing results. It’s a malaria treatment, 6 days combined with a Z-pack. A today fix vs. waiting 18 months for a “vaccine.”

      I plan to check my markets (Safeway, Raley’s, Wal-Mart and FoodMaxx first thing in the a.m. on Saturday (Wal-Mart early, the others all open at 6:00 a.m.) to try and get some ground beef. I’m hoping that now that the Chicken Littles have stocked their houses, the rest of us can get food.

      This is crazy. This is the United States of America and people cannot get food in California.

      I’m sure as more people get tested we’ll see a climb in the total number of cases. But people aren’t getting tested if they are asymptomatic and from what I’m hearing a lot of people who are positive are only getting mild cold symptoms.

      My daughter-in-law was feeling flu-ey on Tuesday and Kaiser gave her a mask and told her it was probably Influenza A.

      god my memory sucks. The HIV drug they were hoping would work, tho, utterly failed. Good thing it failed early so they didn’t use any more resources on it, tho.

      What legal authority does he have to do this and what is his enforcement mechanism? This is going to become like the old 55 MPH speed limit — it’s going to get ignored. Somebody’s going to get hurt if they keep this up. Looking at it, it looks like some pretty arbitrary decisions were made regarding what is “life sustaining” and what is not.

      Eight months?????

      Lock-downs is akin to running up the white flag.

      There are very good models for a situation like this. A total shut down just hides the problem away until you either run out of consumables or you break the whole system wide open. China is about to have their dead cat bounce moment in a fortnight. They clamped down hard but the 5 million folks who fled Wuhan infected the whole nation. Now Janes Defence , an apolitical analysis estimated that the total Chinese exposure was 1.4 million cases over 3 months. NOT the so called official number which was touted for party political reasons. So now China has declared victory, whatever that means and have got everyone back to work. Alas all of those who were still infectious but unsymptomatic also went back to work. They are now busy infesting the second tier across the whole country. Give it a week or so and we’ll see another spike. And so on and so forth.

      A great analogue for the way to get past this challenge is:-

      Take a large pop bottle and a small pop bottle. Cut off the top 6 ” of the large bottle and the top 3 ” of the small bottle. Punch a hole in the bottom of tlarge bottle and glue in the right upside down top half of the small bottle so the small bottle’s spout pokes out the bottom of the large bottle. Now also punch a hole in the side of the big bottle down the bottom side wall.

      Now fill a bucket with water. The water is your population. Now begin pouring the water into the open top of the large bottle. Water flows out the side hole ( these are people who get better on their own. The water level rises until the water reaches the lip of the small bottle and pours out down the insides of the upside down small bottle exiting the botton of the large bottle. This happens when the medical system reaches maximum capacity and folks begin to slip through the cracks and die untreated.

      Keep filling from the bucket at an increasing rate until the water reaches the top lip of the big bottle. This the point of total systemic failure. The water entering the top edge of the big bottle overflows down the outsides sides of the big bottle’s walls. System failure!

      The plan is to NOT allow the water to reach the top lip of the SMALL bottle meaning that the hospital system is just holding its own. Social distancing will help as will voluntary isolation for those with mild symptoms. Alas the chance for asymptomatic individuals still infecting others remains but is reduced. By keeping the system stable with the water level NOT overflowing the lip of the small bottle, those vulnerable individuals get the resources necessary to give them the best shot at getting over this virus. The 6-8 month calculation apparently comes from a Brit study where either herd immunity begins to gain the upper hand or either a cure is found or alternative treatments are found to slow the spread and minimise the symptoms.

      Without anything the death rate in the US is touted as 2.2 million (mostly elderly of compromised health individuals. 1.1 million with social distancing and normal sanitary care regimes. Less with a combination of analgesic treatments, increased hospital beds and (personnel… from where???) and finally a cure.

      The plan is to NOT crash the economic system or we will see something terrible. Maintain supply chains by whatever means necessary. Use resources logically and wait for the cure.

      Then learn from all of the mistakes we made so it won’t be as bad next time!

      Just had my flu jab this morning for historic viruses so with luck I won’t get those on top of what may be coming from Corid19. Smart thinking. Getting folks to go to their pharmacies to get the shot rather than attempting to go to the GP’s office. Smart!

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      The problem with China is when they start starving, the gov’t starts a war somewhere. As for the 5 mil that left Wuhan – are you sure about that number? The total population is around 11 mil, I think. You’re talking about 50%.

      They were these for the New Year before the shit really hit the fan. When things started heading south the family members who were visiting all took off and went home before the Provincial government started placing travel restrictions on people.

      This thing couldn’t have happened at a more difficult time for the Chinese.

      Yeah, about that. There is a little bit of an issue there, Defense Industry is considered essential industry and falls under federal jurisdiction. There are a boatload of contracts letters being sent to various DoD agencies requesting concurrence that those contracts are considered essential to the country’s defense and thus exempt from local or state restrictions. Newsome does not have the authority to shut those outfits down. This is going to get interesting.

      Sweden isn’t happy with China

      he aggressive Chinese attacks on Sweden for our handling of the Coronavirus should be seen against the fact that the Chinese Communist Party wants to escape all kind of responsibility for the spread of the epidemic.

      Lousy animal husbandry and poor food standards, along with fear of the dictatorship and its culture of silence, are the main reasons why the world is presently wrestling with a terrible global pandemic. Its background lies in the inability of a totalitarian system to take people’s perceptions, security and life into account. It is not Sweden or Europe that is the problem in all this. It’s China.

      And it is China that, using its economic power, systematically threatens democratic countries in order to destabilize and silence criticism.

      On Radio Sweden, the Chinese propaganda attack was incomprehensibly described as something very sharp and because of that worth listening to. They neglected that this is how the Communist regime for a long time has acted against Sweden, among other democracies.

      People in the letters column of the newspaper noticed what I did about the fact his reopening guidelines would require all dining places to have tables a minimum of 6ft wide and 12 ft long. He stated that public imput was both “unasked for and unwanted” and that he had “carefully considered all public risk factors and written the rules accordingly”.

      Some Pa. school districts told to stop mandatory instruction, grading during closure

      The Pennsylvania Department of Education on Thursday appears to have told some school districts to stop all instruction during a mandatory 10-day closure even if the districts are prepared for online
      ‐—————

      The state’s directive, Harris said, was because students who would normally receive special assistance or are involved in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) could not get the same support through online assignments. Continuing instruction online could present an equity problem, Harris said.

      Yeah, I got a letter from my school about how they are working on plans to meet IEP standards. Thats all BS by the way. Home schooling (which is basically what we are doing right now) should be able to meet IEP standards with no trouble since it’s one on one. Anyone saying that there’s an equity problem is saying that the parents can’t be trusted with their own children.

      People are rebelling

      HARRISBURG — Challenges are mounting to Gov. Tom Wolf’s order late Thursday directing all but “life-sustaining” businesses to shut down, with the first of what could be a wave of lawsuits contending that the governor has overstepped his authority under the state Constitution.

      On Friday afternoon, the Harrisburg-based law firm of Costopoulos, Foster & Fields petitioned the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for an emergency injunction to allow the firm to reopen. The governor’s order, among a list of other businesses, required law firms to close their physical locations.

      “The governor’s order is so broad and sweeping, it is manifestly unconstitutional and illegal,” wrote William C. Costopoulos, a partner in the firm and a well-known defense lawyer who has represented elected and other officials in criminal cases.

      He added that the firm, its clients, “and others across Pennsylvania will continue to be deprived of their state and federal constitutional rights. … Not even a public health emergency should result in the deprivation of such critical rights.”

      Quite.

      That’s why the Chinese data was highly suspect.

      Their denominator ( by the analysis from Janes Defence was 1.3 million (1% of the total population), and THAT puts a very different complexion in the death rate. It also brings into doubt the accuracy of the numerator because China did not have the warning that Italy had and if the Chinese fatality percentage is anywhere near that of Italy then the death rate would necessarily grow as was suggested by the spike in SO2 readings over Wuhan region as well as 130Km West of Wuhan where bodies were being cremated.

      This shutdown cannot continue for more than a few weeks. The economy will be destroyed. I don’t feel qualified to have an opinion about the financial bailout that’s being proposed but frankly, it sounds like just throwing money into a shit storm and hoping it doesn’t get shredded. Also, I think people will just say ‘fuck it’ and start going back to work to the extent they can. Nobody is going to just sit in their house and watch their life melt away simply because they’ve been told to.

      Gee, most of the states said essential services must remain open. If that isn’t an essential service I don’t know what is. Seems like an intentional impeding of constitutional rights. I’d also argue we have a lot of very legally grey if not outright illegal things being done in the name of “protection” from CV right now. Such as violation of interstate commerce.

      We started out the day with a suicide by hanging at around 5 am. About 8:30, the inmates in two pods in G unit decided to go crazy, apparently over corona virus fears. They completely trashed both pods, to the point where we had to move all of them out to other units until they’re repaired (well, aside from the 25 of them who we shipped off to Santa Fe late today).

      Particularly since it happened in the segregation unit.

      Having said that, though, I doubt that anyone in NMCD is particularly sad about the douchebag who did it. He was a former gang-banger who’s been in prison since he turned 18, doing life for killing a store clerk when he was 16. He then escaped from the county jail before he was sentenced, which earned him another 10 years. Then, about 6 years later, he was involved in a riot in one of the other prisons where an officer was killed. That got him 26 years for second degree murder, along with 4 years for tampering with evidence (destroying the cameras in the pod where it happened). All together, that comes out to life plus 40 years.

      So, as I am a California resident, an aerospace employee, which is considered nonessential, I am temporarily out of work. The state of California is on quarenteen curfew or lockdown. I literally have all day to go somewhere and nowhere to go.

      No work, means all of my savings will very shortly be gone. Because a bunch of assholes wouldn’t voluntary self quarenteen the whole state is now on lockdown.

      Fuck you and your right to tell the government to go to hell. Your right to tell the government to go to hell stops when it impact it’s my right to earn a living and put food on my table.
