Amidst Toilet Paper Runs, Florida Man Busted

Quote:
As the coronavirus scare prompts panicked runs on toilet paper worldwide, a Florida Man was arrested yesterday for the 1 AM theft of some two-ply bath tissue from a neighbor’s vehicle, according to court records.

Police allege that Safraz Shakoor, 25, burglarized a Dodge truck parked in the driveway of a residence a few blocks from his Clearwater home.
And:

Northeast Ohio police department asks for all criminal activity to stop due to COVID-19

Quote:
"Due to the coronavirus, the police department is asking that all criminal activities stop until further notice. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in the matter. We will update you when we deem it’s appropriate to proceed with yo bad selves," the department said.

Italians over 80 'will be left to die' as country overwhelmed by coronavirus

Quote:
Coronavirus victims in Italy will be denied access to intensive care if they are aged 80 or more or in poor health should pressure on beds increase, a document prepared by a crisis management unit in Turin proposes.

Apparently "screening" of arriving passengers at airports will be done with a touch screen. That's sort of funny, as long as you don't think about the implications.

Maybe health officials will later monitor at-risk arrivals by giving them a new 23" monitor.

This is like the summer heat waves in France when younger families go on vacation.

Canada shutting the border to most non-citizens due to COVID-19: PM Trudeau
https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/corona...deau-1.4854503

Mostly good measures announced today. One major problem is that Americans are exempt. All U.S. tourists should also be banned, and then figure out how much the business traffic can be reduced over the next few days.

Your Government Is Here For You

@CP24 JUST IN: CBSA employee at Toronto Pearson tests positive for COVID-19

And nobody can figure out why.
Alberta, Quebec and Nova Scotia are now all sending provincial officials to airports out of concern that CBSA agents are not telling people about the 14-day isolation period. Pretty massive abdication of federal responsibility. Other provinces should quickly follow suit https://t.co/29Nsgn3kqf

I was going to note that this may just send the point home, but probably not...

In the US, the CDC has issued an advisory that gatherings of 50 or more be cancelled, nationwide.
This comment sums it nicely:

Quote:
“Our numbers are excellent”

Utter malevolent crapulence.

Your numbers aren’t excellent, your numbers are NON_EXISTENT BECAUSE YOUR SCREENING PROTOCOLS DON”T EXIST ON THE GROUND.

In short, they are flying COMPLETELY BLIND AND BY THE SEAT OF THEIR PANTS, hoping and praying for a miracle.

Cheers
Bold mine.

And Now For The Good News

Quote:
It’s a leaked document and worst case scenerio.
The coronavirus epidemic in the UK will last until next spring and could lead to 7.9 million people being hospitalised, a secret Public Health England (PHE) briefing for senior NHS officials reveals.

The document, seen by the Guardian, is the first time health chiefs tackling the virus have admitted that they expect it to circulate for another 12 months and lead to huge extra strain on an already overstretched NHS.

It also suggests that health chiefs are braced for as many as 80% of Britons becoming infected with the coronavirus over that time.
Watch China. If it returns with a vengeance in China upon the resumption of work… see above.
Bold mine.

The Left’s Wildest Dreams May Be Coming True

Quote:
While sane, responsible people are rightfully worried about what is still to come from Covid-19, it must be noted that the ardent disciples of the cult known as Radical Leftism appear to be having all of their most heartfelt wishes granted.

First, the economic growth we’ve all enjoyed is about to end, which is something that Bernie Sanders and AOC and Bill Maher and their ilk have been hoping would happen for some time now. But if that wasn’t enough, the reduced growth is certain to reduce carbon emissions. And for the cherry on top, all of the Leftists who have been screaming that we need to reduce the population are now about to have their wishes granted, with an estimated 0.25% – 3.0% of the world’s population about to die. With that population currently at about 7.7 Billion people, this equates to between 19.25 Million to 231 Million souls gone.

The Leftist Death Cult must be rejoicing!

How The Wuhan Virus Is Accomplishing The Green New Deal’s Goals

Quote:
Coronavirus is accomplishing in a matter of weeks what Democrats’ Green New Deal could only hope to do. Crushing capitalism, putting the oil and gas industry into panic, ending travel, and controlling population would all be deliberate consequences of the radical Green New Deal. So its supporters—Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire and former presidential candidate Tom Steyer, and myriad eco-leftists—should be mildly, if not outwardly, pleased.

Don’t come to their defense, with claims like, “The Green New Deal is meant to help the environment and battle climate change!” Listen, I don’t make value judgements on intentionality, Kant. So, don’t @ me with what the Green New Deal was “meant” to do. Let’s talk like grownups about what it would actually do.

Shocker: Media (and Very Online Neurotics Who Claim to be TruCons) Shrieked for a Week That Trump Must Get a Wuhan Flu Test;
The Moment He Tests Negative, They Begin Disputing the Test


Quote:
So what was the point of pressuring him to take the test?

Aren't these the same pant-shitting neurotics and mental patients who tell us "I believe in Science" all day long?

Quote:
Reminder: This was the same WH doctor who last night said President Trump didn’t need a test for the coronavirus. Now, a day later, the doctor says he tested Trump for the virus and he’s negative.
— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) March 14, 2020
Quote:
Q: why did @realDonaldTrump take the Coronavirus test when his dr put out a statement last night saying it was not necessary?
Q: why did they announce Google tool and drive in tests when it isn’t happening other than a trial in Bay Area?
— Andrea Mitchell (@mitchellreports) March 14, 2020
Why would he take the test, despite having no symptoms? Oh, let me take a shot at that: Maybe because the Very Online Neurotics of the media were, as usual, attempting to incite a panic, using Trump's non-tested status as a panic-spreading vector, so he took the stupid test to stop the newest push for a viral panic.

No?

Well, you have to keep in mind that the man lies like a priest at a molestation inquiry. He makes up "facts", wings it, fudges, improvises, goes off half-cocked, blither blathers, etc. Even his addresses to the nation have to be walked-back within minutes of airing because he goes off-script into la-la land (right next door to Mar-a-Lago, I hear).

But I think we should give the negative coronavirus results all seriousness. All the same seriousness that Trump gave to Obama's birth certificate *snort*
