Yeah right. interventor Apr 04 2020 at 12:21 am Add, that the only creatures more protective of children than the parents are the grandparents. Too Tall Apr 04 2020 at 12:46 am Kudos to Javier for giving Jo Artificial Intelligence that nearly mimics a mother’s instincts. However, as Interventor points out, Javier failed to account for the grandmother’s protective instincts. No doubt, Javier is already working on that patch. Now, will Jan be foolish enough to attempt to compete with Kimiko in spoiling their young visitors? Usually manifested by “Who Can Buy the Biggest Drum Set,” or some such nonsense. Meanwhile, Don Portago smiles serenely over all he surveys, because if Kimiko is happy, then the Don is supremely delighted. Punta Gorda Apr 04 2020 at 3:06 pm @interventor Yeah, but grandparents get to Jack the kids up on candy before returning them to their parents. “Generational payback” interventor Apr 04 2020 at 3:55 pm Plus, they know all the embarrassing stories about the parents and have photos. Jefferson A Selvy Apr 04 2020 at 4:04 pm Mocha fudge ice cream was usually my go to. Caffeine and sugar works wonders on my nieces. I am the evil uncle all parents hate. WayneM Apr 04 2020 at 12:42 am Not sure which I prefer… ~the Wu-Flu ~Kung-Flu ~Wuhan-Virus ~China-lied, People-died Too Tall Apr 04 2020 at 12:47 am Wuhanic Plague. This one’s going to be historic. Jefferson A Selvy Apr 04 2020 at 4:05 pm The Bubonic plague, better known as the Black Death also originated in China. Still some guy Apr 04 2020 at 12:55 am I’ve been calling it “Chinese War Virus”. That seems to push of the usual suspect’s buttons. interventor Apr 04 2020 at 8:14 am ChiCom Flu JTC Apr 04 2020 at 11:35 am That is still my favorite as to source, calls it what it is and puts the blame where it belongs. But I’ve come to see that a disease overblown and weaponized by leftists for political and social ends is better described as CommieConCancer…evil, malignant, and growing like wildfire. In the past we have beaten down both diseases, hope we get through this one too before our leaders, our people, and our Republic are beaten down and exhausted. DW Apr 04 2020 at 2:26 pm I agree with “Chinese War Virus”. Trump pushed hard for the 1st stage of trade agreements. I believe they released the virus on purpose to slow things down. pyrodice Apr 04 2020 at 4:31 am Winnie the Flu. GWB Apr 04 2020 at 8:13 am This is my favorite. Bill G Apr 04 2020 at 5:48 am CCP Virus is accurate, even if it’s not something out of a Chinese Communist Party lab, their attempts to cover it up allowed it to become the pandemic it is. The estimates say that if they’d acted three weeks earlier, as they could have, it would be 95% less than it is. And although it’s origin had nothing to do with Hong Kong, I still find it amusing to call it the Hong Kong Phlooey. Halley Apr 04 2020 at 9:55 am How bout the “Let’s Collapse Trump’s Economy So We’ll Win In November With Joe Dementia” virus? 98.2% of those infected have a nasty precondition known as “Climate Extinction”. Or we can just call the insane “panic” what it is: TDS Hungry Joe Apr 04 2020 at 10:37 am The Chinese Crud John Apr 04 2020 at 12:35 pm I personally favor the CCP virus. But traditionally such things are named after the place where they gained prominence, thus the Spanish Flu was named after the country where it first devastated the population, Ebola was named after the Ebola river where it was identified, MERS stands for Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome etc. This means that properly it should be called the Wuhan virus. In direct defiance BTW of the WHO, a wholly owned subsidiary of the CCP.

Pamela Apr 04 2020 at 2:47 am But Sanders will feel really BAD about it. Not. Piker. NotYetInACamp Apr 04 2020 at 1:30 am And what will everyone’s budget, the nations’ budget, the businesses’ budgets, the family budgets, and each individual look like over the next few years? This is an opportunity that many will attempt to take advantage of. There are opportunities to do things better also. But first let’s get through with the Wu Flu. GWB Apr 04 2020 at 8:15 am This is an opportunity that many will attempt to take have already taken advantage of. FIFY Bill G Apr 04 2020 at 5:58 am The more time passes, the more numbers come out that are not out of the OHMYGODWE’REALLGONNADIE school of thought. I am not at all sure that we are not doing more damage to ourselves than the bug would, if treated with reasonable respect. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-strictly-by-the-numbers-the-coronavirus-does-not-register-as-a-dire/?fbclid=IwAR0-jCQQ1Ahz_qxDv9LxsNsaldji_k6FqDLWuWsStPGIvUEbvN_m3slyV_Q cb Apr 04 2020 at 7:47 am There is a little sanity beginning to shine in around the edges: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/04/breaking-new-york-data-confirms-99-coronavirus-fatalities-pre-existing-conditions-94-fatalities-age-45-open-economy/ John Apr 04 2020 at 1:07 pm Our big problem is the Fog of War. On the one hand we need to keep the CCP virus victim load at or below hospital capacity so we don’t generate excess deaths like they did in Italy. On the other, any economic depression generates excess deaths by itself. Because the first is kinda sorta easy to determine the simple minded fixate on that, but the real threat lies in the second, which can only be determined statistically and after the fact. And that is just body count. When it comes to human suffering the second far outweighs the first. It is far easier to get over being sick than it is to get over being poor. Rockbend Apr 04 2020 at 10:18 am Apparently if your government doesn’t freak out and quarantine everybody/everything – your economy doesn’t die: https://www.forbes.com/sites/traversmark/2020/04/01/why-is-coronavirus-fear-so-low-in-sweden/amp/ John M Apr 04 2020 at 12:47 pm So, to change the subject, is there an airstrip on the ranch that can handle a fairly large aircraft, or are they going to have to take the kids somewhere to board? Chris Muir Apr 04 2020 at 1:38 pm There’s a strip. For aircraft, too. Pamela Apr 04 2020 at 1:55 pm *looks at Chris over glasses* Do you have personal knowledge… 😉 pyrodice Apr 05 2020 at 6:57 am Well… It’s a COMIC strip. Too Tall Apr 05 2020 at 12:39 am Rim shot…. coffinman Apr 04 2020 at 1:47 pm Anyone carrying extra mags when out and about? …So asketh The Coffinman… Pamela Apr 04 2020 at 6:06 pm I keep wasp/hornet spray nearby JJ Apr 05 2020 at 4:26 pm As do I! JJC Pamela Apr 04 2020 at 7:22 pm do hollow points count? Oldarmourer Apr 04 2020 at 1:59 pm “even billionaires budget…when they’re using their own money” Nemo Apr 04 2020 at 3:23 pm My fav: Lung pow sicken… And, yes I’m carrying an extra when I’m out and about. Oldarmourer Apr 04 2020 at 11:12 pm define ‘extra’…one should always have ‘enough’, plus one more. Duty load used to be 6 in the cylinder plus two speedloaders for total of 18 rounds Then when 9mm’s became issue it was 13 in the magazine plus two spares for 39 Nothing changed to warrant the (much appreciated) increase in duty load It was just the same old ‘duty load = full load plus two spares’ mindset. When working the darkside, a few extra reloads, loaders or loose, never hurt Neither would an extra magazine, although the round count was already higher To add extra beyond three (or maybe 4 for 1911’s) seems a bit much on the person The old adage “a sidearm is used to fight your way to your longarm” makes sense. A jury is going to wonder exactly why you, as a civilian, needed 75 rounds with you Night-gaunt49 Apr 04 2020 at 11:55 pm Trump lies people die. He has done a good job of hindering response by removing the 2 response teams set up in 2018. Now he isn’t using the stores as they should be. Instead of just handing them out there is a bidding war among cities and states for them. Expect more to die needlessly because of that. We’ll soon see how all that gun and ammunition purchasing will round out the panic and pandemic here. Most of the red states are still dragging their feet. The Lieut. Governor of Texas was telling the most likely to die from infection to save money and do so now. So that the bottom line looks better. Real humanitarians there./s So far we are making China look good. That stings. JohninMd.(help!) Apr 05 2020 at 11:32 am Old school. S&W 1917, full mooms. Did you know if you take the inserts out of a duty.357 speedloader pouch, it’ll hold two full moon clips… cmblake6 Apr 06 2020 at 9:24 pm Why would there be?
