Thou shalt not kill

Don’t feel bad. Many millions died last century due to not only wars, but socialist/communist/fascist economic central planning. Wasn’t that murder at the hands of politicians? How many will die this century, right here in the USA, as a result of expanding the socialist economic policies of our own ...

COVID-19 Math

Nobody has any idea exactly how many people have contracted this virus within any given population due to the inability to test every person, and without that number, the mortality rate calculation is as useless as a zipper on a loincloth. An ‘apples-to-apples’ comparison with the normal flu reveals...

Re: Coronavirus death vs. auto accident

The fear/concern is that all hospitals will be overwhelmed and healthcare workers will not have protective gear. Not enough beds and ventilators will lead to a large number of deaths. Pretty unusual to say the least.... Pretty unsettling that if you get sick, there might not be a slot available to ...

Wealth Redistribution

Where have you been since the imposition of the income tax, the New Deal, the Great Society, etc., etc.? Yes, exactly so. Just another brick in the wall. We’ve had socialism in the United States since 1865 and the Reconstruction of the post-war South. The latest acts of government are just a contin...

More panic induced economic impact

Pretty sure the fracking industry is done, never was a net-profitable industry as they depended on regular cash inflows from loans and investors to keep running. The workers will go home but all the debt will remain.

So when does the Corona virus panic hit the US?

Imagine if you will a country gone derp derp They order everyone to stay home. No one can go to work all to keep them safe, of course. No one collects a pay check. Renters are evicted, home owners are foreclosed on, car loans default and cars repossessed, credit cards are not paid so get cancelled ...
