    It’s good to be the Don!

    On the other hand, Javier and the twins could be interesting.

    Finally: In Praise of Older Women!

  • Too Tall

    Is Sam going to let James Zed “Samuel” Owens go to Grandma’s with the twins, or is Sam going along with her kids?

    Are Skye and her brood invited as well?

    • Chris Muir

      All kids go as usual except babies,Skye’s staying to get a break.

    Just now: “‘Floridians have been ordered to take shelter in their meth labs.”

    Jimmy Kimmel is not getting better in isolation. Without the spray tan he’s whiter than Hillary. That’ll teach me to switch off right after Nightline.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Um. I do not have one. Is Kimmel trying to be funny again? That “joke” reminds me yet again why I do not patronize his broadcast.

  • Well, it’s obvious the apples didn’t fall far from the tree….

    • PaulS

      The apples don’t appear to have fallen at all! 😉

    Although the reaction to covid-19 is kind of over-the-top, it does make sense to be prudent. I’m not looking forward to the economic fallout of this… not at all…

    • NotYetInACamp

      Maybe people will consider what real wealth is again?

      • WayneM

        NotYetInACamp, you might be onto something…

        That being said, the leftists are still pushing to claim the response to covid-19 “proves” that capitalism isn’t capable of addressing such issues… while offering no insight into how socialism/communism/marxism would magically fix everything?

        • Doggo

          They are also blaming the government for its slow response. Do they think it would be faster under gropey Joe Biden? Or whoever his dictator-behind-the-scenes is?

    • John

      It seems like the only way American Culture changes is in radical lurches followed by some moderation.
      Maybe now people will get into the habit of wearing masks when they are sick instead of assaulting/insulting the public.
      But the way things actually go I expect our slovenly ways will reassert themselves eventually and we’ll have to go through this idiocy again.

  • NotYetInACamp

    It is wonderful to see such a marvelous example of an older person taking the beneficial immune system effect that exposing their skin to natural sunlight has for them. That skin made Vitamin D from that exposure helps the immune system far more than clothed and taking supplements ever would have for her. That woman has a great health ethic that shows she cares about health that she demonstrates to her family.

      Hummina, hummina.

        The redvolution site seems to be gone. Can we get a download of those comics? Or some other way to access them? Maybe a PDF?

        • Chris Muir

          Something better’s in process.

  • Punta Gorda

    Spent the day milling about in crowds waiting to check out. Basically it was just sort of an overblown hurricane prep routine here in Florida.

  • Pamela

    I read a study that showed Zinc interferes with the CV’s RNA from replicating.
    Should this be the case, it would be a cost effective solution for killing the beastie.
    One issue would be people taking too much and another would be will it provide a natural immunity.

    • Bill G

      Zinc is being used in some of the cocktails being given. Per this article Quercetin is an anti-viral and may be helpful. I have been taking zinc for a while thinking it’s helping my tinnitus, and I take Quercetin for my sinuses. Allergies plus a deviant, er, deviated septum. I can’t be sure they’re doing much, if anything, but I’m not stopping.

      Its the main ingredient in Zicam’s pre-cold remedy OTC products. Which I use and find useful.

      I’ve heard similar about copper (Cu). I already wear a copper ring made from a piece of heavy Cu wire, beaten flat, then coiled and sized around a mandrel. I’ve been doing it as a folk remedy for arthritis (left hand fingers), but it’s nice to hear about this synergistic bonus effect.
      All I can say is, it’s unproven, folk remedy, sample size of one……but it ain’t hurting me, either.

    • T-cloud

      Zinc used to work for me but you have to take it at the very first sign of a cold. It really does shorten a cold, but if you take it after you’ve had one for a few days it only helps a little bit.

  • Abe-De

    Good point most beautiful one. Zinc ions can have a disruptive, catalytic effect upon bacteria and now perhaps viruses as well. The ionized Zinc causes the molecular structure of the bacteria cell to twist and distort, thus bacteria decomposes during mitosis.

    • PaulS

      Works to keep moss off the roof too. 😉

  • Bill G

    That is surely a delightful end to hold.

  • Browncoat

    Sorry Grandma but if I lived, relatively, in the middle of nowhere in Texas in such times as these, there’s no way I’d be letting my kids go anywhere.

    • Chris Muir

      Billionaire’s retreat.

  • Grunt GI

    So let me see if I have this straight:
    Sam, Zed, Skye, Suzy, Travis and Jo are at the ranch. And now pretty much everyone else will be at the Don’s?

    • Chris Muir

      Babies stay at the ranch. ‘Samuel’ Owens and ‘Spot’ Flanagan.

      • Grunt GI

        Ok, gotcha. Thanks.
        Just trying to keep up.
        🙂

      • kadaka

        Um, when did Skye pick up a third? Thought it was just the twins.

      • Pamela

        He needs to be given a new name. Asher means happiness.

      • Bob n houston, mobile

        Naomi and that Urainian fella?

  • GnomeKing

    So 3 different treatments that were tested. Zinc and the hydroxychlorqine(anti-malarial drug) in South Korea on actual patients (low success rate). Malaria drug and a Z-pak (shortened name of a long named antibiotic) in a lab in France, had 100 % effectiveness in the test tube. Then Trump fast tracked the clinical trials in New York. Doctor there (recently interview by Rudy Giulani on his show) mixed all 3 ingredients Malaria, Z-pak and Zinc and in 699 patients all survived and only 4 went to hospital. They way it works is Zinc is a natural anti-viral, cleans out your blood fine, but doesn’t penetrate the cell walls very well. The anti-malarial creates a pathway for the zinc to penetrate the cell where the virus is replicating. The z-pak was to deal with all the secondary effects you already had brewing due to the covid virus.

    • Old Codger

      OK, but how available is that z-pak antibiotic? And also how expensive and how difficult/time consuming is it to produce? It’s not worth a damn if it is not readily available or takes too damned long to produce or just plain so damned expensive that only millionaires can afford to take it.

      Side note: Here in San Antonio the largest number of cases and deaths have been in a “well to do” urban area that used to be a suburb but around which the city grew several decades ago. Rich, entitled fellating oedipae. They insist upon sending folks like me to do their grocery shopping for them and then tip the minimum. I text them when an item on their (incredibly UNorganized) list is out of stock – asking about alternates – and they never reply.

      • Hobomatt

        Hey, in San Antonio, how is the “worlds’ biggest homeless shelter” (Haven for Hope) doing with the virus? Talk about packing people together….

      • Kafiroon

        FWIW. OC, I did not save the article I saw yesterday about that.
        I will try to re-find that. It claimed $20 for those readily available and been used for years drugs.

      • GnomeKing

        From what I understand it is all pretty much very common, “generic versions” available over the counter types of drugs. The malaria drug they used to hand out like candy in the Marines. It’s been around since the 50’s. zinc is over the counter (different types probably work better) and there isn’t necessarily a lock on the type of anitbiotic, just that you take one to help your overworked immune system. In the video of the interivew Rudy did with the Doctor he mentioned the dosages as well.

      • Too Tall

        $4.00 for a Z-Pack. 57th most prescribed medicine in the United States,

        $25.00 for a thirty day supply of 400 mg Hydroxychloroquine. 128th most prescribed medication in the United States.

        $5.40 for a thirty day supply of 60mg Zinc Glutamate.

        Those are the TOTAL costs, insured or not, not just your co-pay.

  • I remember having to take an anti-malarial drug one time. Ireal had just given the Sinai Peninsula back to Egypt. We had to go over as a good will gesture and do a small joint exercise. Not a country I would want to go back to. The people were nice but it REALLY smelled bad. Anyway, when we got back they gave us a week off to get off of the drug. We took another pill, but mostly sat naked, close to the toilet, with a towel over my lap. When that not so lovin’ feeling came

  • there was no time to shed your drawers.

    Definition of a classic trophy wife!

    She might consider entering a grandmothers’ bikini/beauty contest once we get past this Pandemic/Quarantine/CCP Caused Viral Depression. She would definitely be a top contender for the trophy.

    Kinda like these contestants in a Brazilian Grandmothers Beauty Contest …

    • To steal a line, “Great Caesar’s Ghost”!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think Brazil looks like a fine place to be!!!!

  • JTC

    Looks like the old girl is “holding up” pretty well…

    There’s a truth nugget in there about rich folks access to what money can but maybe shouldn’t be able to buy.

    • JTC

      OTOH of course is the question of “what would you do?”.

      I know the answer as for me, and expect it would be much the same for others in this audience and context.

  • Chiang Rai Jay

    Hate to sound like a wet towel thrown in but if you are like me, ONLY get your vitamin D from vitamin D3 pills. Basel Cell Carcinomas are a bitch !! First ones at 19 yo and over 250 since. SPF for safety ^_^

    • JJ

      I concur.
