Clob…..what he is politely trying to tell you is that he isn't worried about the DWI....he is worried about the assault and attempted murder charges he normally faces from having a "discussion" with fellow bar patrons......Best leave that gun in the holster.....maybe ask him for BBQ
First, let me start by saying that Fresh has ZERO to worry about with regard to idiots at my bar. He'll be sequestered in a private booth with two dudes that used to work at his former employer at the same time he used to work there. Nobody with any lick of sense is going to disturb them. Second, I think he's saying that once e gets started, it's tough to stop. Understandable. That's why God invented UBER and pedia-lite.

This is starting to get very interesting....$100 says those “health care workers” defiantly standing in the roadway interrupting the anti shutdown protesters wouldn’t be standing there defending Coronavirus if they were out of work without paychecks like a lot of the protesters. We must not allow Trump to get this economy rolling again before the election! Sorry, the people are acting out now.....

Humans.


We see ourselves as evolved and enlightened.

Our big brains give us the hubris that we can control mother nature and make us feel like empathy and sympathy are emotions that we created and we can control for the good of man kind.

But take away our toilet paper and ability to pay our bills for a couple of months and---- the Darwinian animal in us starts to bubble to the surface.


If it ever gets "bad" enough, the fight over who can piss in what bathroom or what pronoun you prefer to be called or what your skin color is will all be thrown out the window in favor of a desperate fight for survival. Anybody notice lately that we really aren't hearing much about high minded "social progressive issues" ?

Hmmm----- could it be because we've had it soooooo good for soooooo long that we started manufacturing more and more boogeymen to make certain portions of society feel they had a common enemy to fight against, in order to add some sort of meaning to the lives of people who consider their lives a bit empty? Haven't seen any school kid age mass shootings lately. Maybe there's an upside to this virus.

They've been trying to shut oil down for years. Now that they have it in a head lock they will keep squeezing. Your favorite congresswoman AOC tweeted "love to see it" in response to the oil crash. They are openly cheering for the economy to crash at this point. Congress's salaries should be dependent on the economy.

These boys are already announcing round 2 is on the way in the Fall and this time it’ll be commingled with the flu. CNN can hardly contain their glee and are pushing the social tracing agenda.

Have to keep fear at the front of everyone's minds. Every new case will be contributed to the protesters as well.

That makes sense. You have an underlying condition, you catch Covid 19....you are more likely to die.

I guess the moral of the story is Don’t Catch It unless you are perfectly healthy.

shows what I know.....I thought the gist of the story was that having venalators or not having ventalators did not have much of an impact one way or another.
Strangely, in places other than New York are having better success rates than New York is.

No Bolio, the moral of the story is this: if you are vulnerable or feel you are vulnerable you shelter in place. You don’t shut down the country based on hypothetical “what ifs”. It’s really not that hard to understand unless you have a political motivation.

Agree. The economy should have never been shut down over this.

And those that respond with "well I guess you're okay with your grandparents dying" are ****wads. No, I'm not okay with that actually. But I'm also not okay with the 20+ million now on the unemployment train who can't pay their mortgage, save for their retirement, save for their kids' education/etc., struggle to put food on the table, can't pay for their kids' sports/arts/etc. extracurricular activities that are proven to lead to more successful adults. I'm not okay with those that have chosen to die by suicide because they are trapped in home...alone.

I guess I just don't have any empathy for the people...:(

But I guess we'll just keep letting the Fed print more money. That will surely not cause economic stress.

Uh oh @outhereincali you may not want to read this, it may temper your beliefs about covid19.

The daily mail is a right wing tabloid. Period. And more and more people are dying that did not have pre existing conditions. There was an article about how healthy people in CA who died. My stepsons sister in law who lives in Houston has it and she's only 33. She couldn't see here regular dr and the dr she did see misdiagnosed her with viral meningitis and now she's hanging on for dear life. Point being more and more people without pre-existing conditions are getting it. Also it started with the elderly and sickly but not anymore. African Americans are getting it and its disproportionate to their population. But I get what you're saying if they already have diabetes, obesity, or high blood pressure, don't waste ventilators on them.

Oh and btw 48, 868 people have died from the coronavirus approx 44,500 this month. And the numbers are starting to increase in Texas. Greg Abbott hasn't done anywhere near as much as he should considering the TX population. But I get it Dan Patrick who as lt. gov. is the most powerful man in TX politics said he'd rather die from the virus rather slow down the economy. So go ahead open up the economy in TX watch what happens in the next 6 weeks.

No, what I’m say is this: life is tough and can be cruel but neither you nor I are going to live forever. If I die from Coronavirus, so be it. If I die from a car wreck, cancer or whatever, so be it. I do not want the world shut down for me. You know as well as I do that only a small percentage die from Coronavirus and that has nothing to do with this silly social distancing. I hope your family member is able to fight thru and make a full recovery but if she doesn’t she’ll hopefully be in a better place.

Here’s the deal Tonto, we may all get it and probably have, a small percentage die, 99% don’t. But the measures we’re being forced to take are ruining the country and economy. Your immune system is compromised or it’s not. I’m sorry but that’s the way it is.

Perhaps the most logical thing I’ve seen you post here. Unfortunately @outhereincali a total shutdown is killing everyone financially I mean damn, do you ever watch tv? Do you think those people rising up in the street are lying or over sensationalizing their situation? No they’re going broke and fixing to lose everything because we’re trying to stop the natural culling trying to take place. Wake up and stop the political crap. Who the hell imagined the absolute stupidity being forced on us right now.

These last 2 replies of yours show me that you will say anything rather than admit you're wrong. Let's see you've denied the me to movement, the college hazing scandals, and now the coronavirus. And those are just the ones I remember I'm sure you've made other shocking denials.

I’m wrong about nothing. The virus is killing folks just like the flu does every year. The election is coming up and you Democrat’s are scared to death Trump is fixing to run roughshod over Biden. Guess what? He is. Impeachment didn’t work and here we are.

Misread your post the first time. I saw the denied me to movement instead of me TOO movement and the sophomore in me was like "how's Bell keeping Cali from taking a poop?".

Sorry bout that.

Biden just ended the me too movement by the way. Apparently his victim doesn't get a nationally televised hearing for some reason.

I'll probably vote Libertarian again, just like in 2016 and 2012. But the Democrats are idiots. They had real progressive candidates that people believed in (agree with them or not) and could rally behind, but instead the final two were two old, rich white guys...both of whom are career politicians with ZERO real world experience. One of whom is a complete dunce. At least Bernie kept it real.

The Democrats chose Biden...=)roll

If you put your hope in a politician, (1) you're a dumbass and (2) you're in for some real disappointment.

Is it too much to ask the government to quit screwing shit up and leave us the hell alone?
