Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

We don't need seven days locally. The usual suspects (chicken factory and nursing home) are accounting for a 100% rise in cases around here.

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

They find that they can wield power better if they call people names and slap labels on "the enemy" to shut down and prevent their followers from even listening to or engaging with "the enemy." In fact, what we see in civil wars is leaders seek to further isolate their followers from the humanity o...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

The protest that was scheduled for Odessa this afternoon was postponed due to coronavirus - apparently they were planning to bus in 5 busloads of people from Dallas and decided it was a bad idea.
I wonder if the professional protestors are getting hazardous duty pay on account of the virus?

Re: Could Doomsday Bunkers Become the New Norm?

Now, a proper storm shelter is a valid consideration, depending on the area - but you probably won't stay in it longer than a 24 hour period.
The longest we ever did was six hours for multiple storm bands. In that instance we had a touchdown less than a mile North of us.

Re: Could Doomsday Bunkers Become the New Norm?

I don't know about shelters but having my own park like land to walk around on when all the parks, restaurants and entertainment venues were closed has been priceless. There is no replacement for breathing room. If I had to sit in my storm shelter all day I would be depressed.

If we look at some recent elections....
I think based on current events we are launching into uncharted territory here. If some people are unhappy enough we could end up with open insurrection that will make Minneapolis look tame.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Fix your living costs today to greatest extent possible:
If you lock in your living costs (for instance buy a home/condo/whatever instead of rent) in today's dollars you should weather inflation a lot better.
Many Lessors are going month to month now to get around illegal evictions due to COVID.
