    A fat malignant toad waddles out of bed everyday to sit at his aging laptop and type every hate filled thought that pops in is tiny mind, he hates everybody, but really hates Trump, and yet this festering sore still thinks Trump should care about his moldy old ass.

    In a video posted to the Chinese owned social media app Tik Tok a Chinese woman is shown going from store to store to buy up masks so that Americans can’t use them

    In a separate incident, another unidentified Asian woman in Stockton, California is shown deliberately touching all the computers on display at a store and is immediately confronted by another individual.

    It appears the mission of a few Chinese nationals is to help spread the Coronavirus in the United States. This is truly disgusting!

    Listening to Mike Roman of 3M getting reamed by Maria B. He comes on all confident then she asked him point blank if their orders are going to countries willing to pay more. He starts hemming, hawing and stumbling. And I now see that Trump sniffed out long ago a Trump hater and now they’re a traitor to our people. It’s one thing to hate Trump. Many of those companies pitching in hated him. But when you sell out the people you’re going to feel the wrath. I was wondering why are Cuban and Trump on the same side on this? The little shark jerk just went up in my estimation.

    So I’m listening to this guy who’s portfolio is shit, this Indian guy who for some reason sounds Cherman…LOL! Any hoo after speaking the obvious he starts to make sense which scares me. He points out that comparisons to the Great Depression leave out the giant wellfare state and unfunded liability that we CURRENTLY hold. Oh shit. No wonder this guy hasn’t showered in days. 🙂 LOL

    • Koko says:

      Oh and I forgot to mention he’s 30 years younger than me. He’s very bright but like me (who’s not very bright) he just got lazy. WE ALL KNEW the risk. How many times did we click the check box that says we read about the risk??? I’m guessing hundreds?

    One of my daughter’s counseling patients just died from batvirus – he was fifty-something, with heart problems. He was in group counseling due to having suicidal ideation after his wife died of cancer. Irony?

    Another girl she had been treating for anorexia and drug addiction is in the hospital with the Thing, and my daughter is a bit freaked out because they had been together in the week before she was laid off. It’s been over two weeks since her layoff, so she’s in the clear, it seems. I hope the sick girl pulls through, and she gleans a lesson about the preciousness of life. You never know what can come from bad experience.

    • Koko says:

      Wow Octo. Shizzle just got real and it’s not funny. I’m going to stop saying hope everyone stay’s safe. Cuz everyone’s not safe.

      • Octopus says:

        No, they’re not safe, if they’re out in the world. We’re laying low here, and so are the kids. Hope this strategy works.

    • windbag says:

      People focus on various things, like the economic disruption, but this is seriously messing with people’s psyches and lives. A friend is a nurse at the health department. We’re a tiny little town, so she’s the one who tests anyone who is suspected of having the virus. She has a one-year-old, who she will not get to have contact with for the foreseeable future. This is some messed up crap right now.

      • Octopus says:

        It’s bad, but it will pass in a little while. I heard a story about local medical professionals being separated from their kids until this blows over. That’s rough, but it would be worse if you infected your own children by being reckless.

        • rightymouse says:

          Does your daughter know where her counseling patients were exposed to the Wuhan virus?

          • Octopus says:

            No, she doesn’t. And one of her co-workers, also a friend of hers, did a counseling session with the sick girl the week after my daughter was laid off, but so far she isn’t showing any symptoms. Now the whole clinic is closed, except for the boss lady and one doctor, who are handling emergencies.

          • rightymouse says:

            This is what has me scratching my head. Where have average, everyday people been to be exposed to the virus? Stay safe & I pray your daughter is ok.

  8. Koko says:

    I’ve been hearing some psyco-babble around here lately.

  9. Koko says:

    The lefturd media and other idiots like Chonk are continuing to try to blame Trump. When they were crooning endlessly about Russia and Trump inherited an empty “stockpile” from Unicorn Messiah and Quid Pro Slow Dumb Joe. Give it a rest already. Trump could blame plenty of people but he realizes this is not helping. Helping is helping. Whining and moaning is just that.

  10. Koko says:

    So the real truth here is how angry internet losers are with Glenn Greenwald for being good at his job and hence prosperous. Never mind he’s risked life and limb in his reportage especially on powerful governments. Do losers like Gus and Fatso ever ask how their unpaid blabbering would compare to a real writer and journalist like Glenn? Uv Core Snot.

  11. Koko says:

    Yowch. USA Today would so love to blame Trump. But once again I’ll be above it all. The Obungle regime got hit hard with hurricanes and other plagues like Ebola. Legitimately depleting supplies. The blame game’s not working for anyone. But of course the last one to find out is Fatso.

    We knew this but are now seeing it in action. Homo Erectus needed another third of brain power to reason out this kind of mass killer. When a major volcano erupted H.E. kept drinking the acid rain poisoned water. Homo Sapiens told their kids don’t drink it. And kept walking. Even still we hit a big bottle neck around 75,000 years ago. Down to around a couple thousand. Every human on the planet are descended from these few people. H.E. didn’t make the cut.
    It doesn’t work unless everybody talks. Ironically in this scenario talking could be a risk but we got so good at it we talk remotely now and by proxy.

    “We can’t rely I think on the numbers that China’s giving out — both because I think the Chinese leadership probably wants to present their model as the successful model and given all the problems the United States is having, this is among other things, a propaganda coup for China to be sending medical equipment to the United States instead of the other way around, but also because historically when there have been viruses or other health or other problems in China, there are people that lie to the Chinese government, lie to their own government, lie to their own people because they are afraid of retribution by the officials higher up,” Schiff advised. So, I don’t think we can rely on what we hear from China.

    He added the United States could not rely on other countries like Russia or Iran, who he speculated could be “misrepresenting how many people are infected.”

    “We can’t rely, for example, on what the Russians say in Russia,” Schiff continued. “We can’t rely on what the Iranians are saying about what goes on in Iran. And because the virus knows no borders, it’s important for us to find out the best we can where the truth lies in terms of where the virus is and what the impacts are.”

    Capitalism is Literally Killing America
    How Capitalism is Adding Disaster to Catastrophe — in the Middle of a Pandemic
    umair haque

    Mar 27 · 6 min read

    Just how badly has American capitalism failed? Consider the following.
    The White House backed out of a deal to manufacture ventilators because the price tag was too high. Go ahead and guess. Ready? It was…one billion dollars. Sound like a lot? Too much? For ventilators for…the entire country…in the middle of a pandemic…that’s already spiraling out of control?
    Then think about this.
    Jeff Bezos is worth $113 billion. Zuck, about $60 billion. Warren Buffett, about $70 billion. Are you seeing my point yet? Let me make it clearer. Either Bezos or Zuck or Buffett — or any number of penny-ante mega-billionaires — could pay for all the ventilators America needs right now, and not even blink. Not even think twice.
    Take Bezos, for example. That one billion dollars to supply the country with ventilators is less than one percent of his net worth. The net worth of the average American household is about $100K. That’s like the average American spending…a thousand dollars. The net worth of the average millennial is about $10K. That’s like the average millennial spending…one hundred dollars.
    That’s how trivial it is for a Bezos to literally supply the entire country with ventilators. It’s pocket money. To call it chump change would be an overstatement. He could do it and he’d literally never even notice the money was gone. It would take his accountant a lifetime to even begin to care.
    Is your head spinning yet? What on earth? It should be.
    All that, my friends, is an object lesson in the profound and surreal failure of capitalism. Let me now put it in simpler terms.
    Capitalism is adding disaster to tragedy, by way of needless scarcity.
    Suddenly, a society experiences a catastrophe — in this case, a pandemic. That would be bad enough. But because a tiny number of people in society have hoarded all the resources — in this case money, which really just means foregone ventilators — a society cannot respond to its catastrophe well at all. What happens next? What happens is what’s going to happen.
    People are going to die. In fact, they already have. Perhaps you read about the poor kid who was turned away from an urgent care center for a lack of insurance. That’s not a ventilator, but it’s not exactly hard to see how a lack of ventilators is going to start killing Americans en masse very, very soon, if it hasn’t already.
    Capitalism is adding disaster to tragedy…by way of needless scarcity.
    How much is one billion dollars, anyways? The American economy is worth about $20 trillion. One billion is a vanishingly small fraction of that. How small, exactly? One twenty thousandth, or .00005%. It’s so small, I might have missed a decimal place there — and it doesn’t matter, because it’s that miniscule.
    And yet the government can’t raise one twenty thousandth of the size of the economy in order to provide society with the one resource it needs most to survive a pandemic — ventilators.
    Think about that math for a second. Really just think about it.
    What would it say about you if you couldn’t raise one twenty thousandth of your income to, say, give your kids life saving medicine? That’s a flawed analogy, but I struggle for anything — anything at all — to express the magnitude of this failure well. I literally can’t think of anything remotely close to it, so let me simply try to express it again, even more concisely.
    The government can’t raise one twenty thousandth of the whole economy’s income to pay for a critical resource during a pandemic — ventilators — while it would cost a Bezos maybe one hundred of his wealth to provide them for the whole country.
    What on earth? My head is spinning. Is yours? It’s so grotesque, baffling, obscene, it’s literally impossible to process. How is it that in the richest society in human history, apparently — pennies can’t be found for ventilators? And yet it’s wealthiest man could single-handedly provide them, and never even notice?
    Now, here’s the even more distressing part. Bezos (or Zuck, Buffett, etc) can’t spend all that money anyways. There is simply no way that you can spend a hundred billion dollars. What would you do? You could buy up all the luxury properties and mega yachts, and you’d barely have made a dent. You’d have to buy entire cities, nations, and whole social systems. Which is effectively what a Bezos has done. Americans don’t have ventilators because Bezos has hundreds of billions. Americans don’t have healthcare because billionaires have all the money in their society.
    When I have more money than I can ever spend, then there is no real cost to me to supply you, say, with ventilators. Do you see how grotesque that paradox is? That is what “artifical scarcity” means. Jeff Bezos having a billion less wouldn’t actually cost him anything, because he can’t spend it anyways. All him having those billions does is cost everyone else life-saving resources, like ventilators in a lethal pandemic.
    So let’s put this epic failure in more technical terms.
    Capitalism has misallocated capital on a truly stunning and surreal scale in America. It’s created a system where an entire nation goes without the critical, life-saving resources they need, in the midst of a lethal global pandemic — while the wealthy could literally buy Americans those resources single-handedly, and doing so wouldn’t make a dent in their fortunes. But the wealthy can’t spend all that money to begin with. It’s literally just sitting there, going to no good use. Like, say, the critical one of ventilators. The result will obviously be needless death on a massive scale.
    Economists call all that a “deadweight loss.” If American economists were actually good ones, they’d immediately understand that capitalism is a colossal and tragic failure. Consider the Soviet Union — Americans used to make fun of it for breadlines. But now Americans are the ones beset by artificial scarcities. What’s scarce in America? Yesterday — healthcare, retirement, decent work, education, good food, and so on. The basics.
    Today? The critical, life-saving necessities. Ventilators, masks, protective equipment.
    Capitalism — as an economy — literally cannot supply these things to society. It is more interested in billionaires hoarding as much wealth as possible — and then crafting political mechanisms to protect that wealth. And yet that wealth is too much, in the simple sense that nobody can even spend it.
    But when I have too much money that I can never spend, of course you will go without — because the economy slowly grinds to a halt, as my money simply sits there idle, instead of being invested in the things you need. That is what “artificial scarcity” means: ventilators aren’t really scarce, we just can’t make them because only Jeff Bezos can afford them, since he’s now as rich as…a whole healthcare system, which Americans now go without, since those resources belong to him.
    What we see at this dire stage of American capitalism is a kind of evolution, backwards, devolution. Yesterday, basics were in perpetual, artificial short supply — money, retirement, healthcare, etc. But you can eke out a life without basics, still. Just one without dignity and meaning and happiness. Yet today, the situation is much worse. Critical, life-saving resources are now artificially scarce. And you can’t live without those.
    The result? People will die — needlessly, on a staggering scale.
    I can’t think of an economic system failing in a more disastrous way than that. A truer way than that. You don’t have a ventilator that might save your, your kid’s, your partner’s life — meanwhile, the wealthy could buy them for all, for every single person in society…at literally no real cost to themselves. There is literally no better example of what Marx famously called “exploitation” than all that: you dying, during a pandemic because the super rich have such an absurd amount of resources in society that they could literally buy everyone life itself, and not even notice, yet won’t, because, well…why care? Americans are being exploited and abused by capitalism now not just into poverty and overwork and social disintegration — but into lethal illness and death itself. Yes, really — in hard, cold, absolute, unforgiving terms.
    Let them eat ventilators? It puts Versailles to shame.
    I have few word left to express how I feel about all this. But I am not the point. You are. Some day, the world hopes, Americans will understand just how badly capitalism has abused and exploited them. Because the world is made of good people, who want the best, still, even for Americans. The question is whether Americans want that for themselves.

    Is there something wrong with you? She’s saying jump idiot. And she’s gorgeous. Jump fool.

    Anybody here have some Excel-fu? I’m stumbling around with a graph.

  47. Bunk X says:

    Just heard that John Prine died.

    • Octopus says:

      Damn, they’re all dying off, faster and faster it seems. I got into Prine when I was going through my Lucinda Williams-phase, and saw them together on Austin City Limits, I believe. He was a good one. RIP.

      Speaking of Lucinda, I heard her song, “Drunken Angel,” on the UM college radio station today. The song is about Blaze Foley, another alt-country antihero who hung out with Townes Van Zandt for too long, and drank himself to death similarly. Not long before he died, they sobered him up enough to do a few songs live, including this one, which I really like:

    My wife’s cousin who was on the verge of death with Covid-19, is finally responding well to treatment and has achieved 80% lung-function. During the worst of it, he did have to be on a ventilator for periods of time, even though he fought that, having a terror of being sedated and intubated. I think I mentioned he had heart problems already, so he’s lucky to be alive.

    • Koko says:

      Good that he’s getting better. Not good that he was on a ventilator. I didn’t realize until this all started that a ventilator is like a last resort. It’s punishing on the lungs.

  51. OLT, Legendary Status Dutch Uncle says:

    How much did they pay Bernie this time?

    Can someone please have him stop doing this?

    Also, when are you Dims replacing Joe? He’s senile, let’s just get a grip on that.

    • Koko says:

      I know and this pandemic has taken the stuffing out of Joe. You can see it in his dumb old eyes. And as suspected Bernie’s no fool and knows where his bread’s buttered. He’s a survivor who’s managed to make a good living just talking left-wing BS. But I gotta hand it to him. He’s creative and bright.

  52. Koko says:

    If you’ve got some cash. This is a golden moment. Usual disclaim. Just sayin’. I’m not saying I think we’ve hit bottom. But the “smart money” (they’re mostly all idiots) is now starting to see this is going to be one hell of a lash back. It’s probably a once in a life time chance to get flat out rich. I’m 40% in but I’m afraid to put the rest in. Because ya know…there’s always the Zombie Apocalypse. But if Chonky says jump in DON’T DO IT. 🙂

    Seriously I don’t believe in picking winners. Sure Dominoes is doing great. And airlines are coming back. But it’s just so risky. I’m keeping my money in tech sector. They always win. It’s like betting on human ingenuity.

    • Koko says:

      But everything’s backwards and upside down. You could probably make a fortune just picking something that got bashed but will stay in business. Hotels, airlines, theaters, restaurants… But you still can’t know which are survivors. Very risky for a cautious Koko.

    Get ready for the kick in the teeth, jerk. We’re not taking advice from a play actor girly man with rage issues who verbally abuses his family. And took a swing at a woman journalist. And gets in altercations with elderly men over parking.

    11 year old called a rude pig by her famous fat-assed father. ‘Nuff said. You don’t get a do-over. You own that.

    It just gets worse the more you look at it. They basically chose China over the rest of the world. It’s leftists. Up is down, bad is good, shit is gold…. I know I’m like a broken record.

    Can you hate America more Joe? An internationalist wife, daughter of a famous global lefturd. Murdered your girlfriend and got away with it. And grotesquely claim you’re a conservative Republican while jerking off Donny Douche. Hate with a passion the first President we’ve seen in a generation that’s for America. Piss off Beaker.

    Jim’s going contrarian. And he has a point on some of these. The virus lethality is overstated. But large family Easter gatherings must be cancelled for this year.

    • Octopus says:

      I don’t like the conspiracy theory folks, who are contending that the plague is “all hype about a bad cold virus.” It’s more than that, and I know too many people who are sick and/or worrying about their spouses and children on the front lines.

      • Koko says:

        Amen, brother.

      • rightymouse says:

        I don’t know anyone personally who has the Wuhan virus. Our county has fewer than 100 known cases and 183 known deaths in Ohio so far. That said, it seems as though it’s highly contagious. Hubby thinks the flu bug we had at our home (that I caught from son’s toothbrush) may have been Coronavirus. I know I was sick for over 3 weeks starting on New Year’s. Anyway, beats me. Tucker had some interesting stats of yearly deaths from other things like Opiods & alcohol. Scary numbers!

    This is all great news and Ivanka of course is super wonderful gorgeous smart. Mnuchin’s OK 🙂

    When I look at this list though I notice a name missing. Starts with F ends in Y (they’re still signing my paychecks.) This is a company that farts and makes a billion dollars. They make so much money it’s like falling off a log for them. It’s not just investments they make money, you understand they sell the sizzle of investing. They get your money. And you think you’re smart.
    Oh sure me getting a raise is like pulling teeth. But I tell you from experience they have guys sitting in offices with internet links to nothing but sports sites. Those guys probably made three times my salary. And of course squandered it on a big house and fancy stupid car. Those fuckers are hurting now. But starts with F ends in Y will never be hurting. They are a money-making machine.

    Can you believe how good she looks? I didn’t look that good at 40. Doing what a modern monarch does. Cheer lead.

    Read it if you want to puke. The pencil neck loser is getting more bold, you know because – don’t let a crisis go to waste. The intel community is finally realizing their previous good name is now leftist dog crap.

  61. Abu penis penis penis lol says:

    Just wanted to check in from my cubicle. It is quiet. There are 4 of us on this floor and no more than 20 people in the 11 story building.

    Gonna be strange when all my fellow employees return.

    • Koko says:

      Wow. You’re still in cubes? We had this thing called a “Refresh” where you could sit anywhere. People were grousing about it but I lovedi it. I loved the flexibity concept of it. You know all you need is a laptop to do business. And they laid me off to replace me with some child who can’t wait to get back home to his/her video games/social media. 😆. And they’re still paying me!! Morons.

  62. dezzez says:

    I agree Chunk, You should be permanently suspended from Twitter.

    Wow it’s really stupid. Lady Gaga is of course a moron. Great musician. Nothing against her there. But the venues like Fallon do nothing to protect these artists. You just crapped on your product. And made her look like crap. Way to go dip shit.

  64. Bunk X says:

    Somebody’s 67th girthday is coming up. We should do something.

  65. Bunk X says:

  66. Octopus says:

    Came across this old gem in Bunk’s google-fu above. 😃

  67. Octopus says:

    😂😂😂😂

    I don’t know why, but this pic made laugh hard this morning. Thanks, I needed that.

  68. Octopus says:

    Well, I celebrated too soon on my wife’s cousin, yesterday. He’s back on the ventilator this morning. Still in grave danger. Shit!

      • Octopus says:

        I guess 80% lung-function isn’t all that great, when you’re a 65-yr-old man with a sketchy heart. The longer you’re down sick, the worse your chances, and being on the ventilator creates its own problems. He’s still fighting, though.

        I found out yesterday he had just retired from his job in the insurance business. I hate it when people don’t get to enjoy any retirement! Get better, Gus.

  69. Octopus says:

    I gave up alcohol for Lent, just as a little “fun project” and challenge. And to make a fitness push, thinking I was going to be in a bathing suit by the pool in Florida this week. Had no idea about the Chinese Lung March. The last drink I had was on my birthday, February 13, when I was too sick to enjoy it. Bad regular flu.

    Our Greek Orthodox Easter is a week after what the Greeks call, “American Easter.” So, there’s at least another week of abstinence tacked on. Not giving in now!

    Results: Down 12 lbs since February. Amazing how that works. 😄

    I only have two effective ways to counter stress and angst: exercise and beer. Without beer, there’s more exercise. And vice-versa. Not to mention, there’s been plenty of time for working out and napping during the quarantine. So that’s what’s been going on here.

  70. Octopus says:

    This pic of Alanis Morrisette worked great on me as clickbait! 😂

    She’s “unschooling” her kids. Boy, they’re gonna be schmart!

  71. Koko says:

    OK I have to work through these things. I notice there are many versions of the blonde big bitches Bangles doing “Walk Like An Egyptian”. It’s like they took it away from her because they know they’re good. Yeah they play great. But there’s only one version. You have to look like a fucking Eqyptian. There are no BLONDE FUCKING EGYPTIANS.

  72. Koko says:

    How do you say…..

  73. koko says:

    We’re going here.

  74. rightymouse says:

    We had a HUGE thunder/lightning storm on Tuesday that took down our internet. Back up today. Went out this morning to take hubby to the car repair place and it snowed/hailed on the way! 😯 The sun is out now & the sky is clear. So weird. I blame Democrats.

  75. Koko says:

    This happened. And it was OK.

  76. Koko says:

    Well why not.

  77. Koko says:

    She wants you to love the gays but you can’t help but love her. Because she was so friggin’ gorgeous. And the more you love her beauty the madder she gets at you. She’s one of those types.

  78. Koko says:

    The storm last night was rather epic and still we’re hearing the wind zooching past the house corners due to the cold front. We went to the basement last night but I left the windows open so the house could breathe. You could hear it heaving as we cowered in the basement.

    • rightymouse says:

      Our storm was Tuesday night and we kept checking to make sure the finished basement didn’t flood. Today has been weird. Snowed this morning and rained/snowed/hailed this afternoon.

  79. Octopus says:

    Watching the History Channel’s “World Wars” today, I was struck by a question: What was the biggest strategic mistake of all time?

    — Hitler’s invasion of Russia
    — Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor
    — Chonky’s switch from conservative to stoopedest libturd in the world?

    • Koko says:

      Bing bing bing. Number 3!!!!😄

      • Octopus says:

        Chonky was also in charge of investing his mother’s money, after his father passed. He put it all into Betamax tape manufacturing and Commodore Computers. Should have diversified. 😥

  80. rightymouse says:

    It’s sneauxing. 😦

  81. ISTE says:

    Boring cat post. Two identical small cats. All black, totally black.

    Except when viewed in a certain light they are developing a tiger stripe pattern.

    This is going to be interesting. Well not for you lot but for me.

    • Bunk X says:

      Make them stand still and do a timelapse vid.

    • Koko says:

      Not boring at all. It’s amazing how they have their patterns in domestication. The variability might just be due to sexual selection. Cuz I can’t see how that could be a survival factor in the backyard! Or just because we think they’re cute and pretty. They’re honing us too you know😆

  82. Octopus says:

    ISTE’s growing cat-family put me in mind of a former co-worker, a spinster gal in her late-30’s who lived alone except for her beloved cat. She had several pics of the big tomcat in her office, and would occasionally catch us up on what the old boy had been up to lately. She wasn’t crazy, like some cat ladies—just a nice person who loved her cat.

    One day she came in crying, all scratched up on her arms and face. She didn’t want to talk about it. Finally, at lunchtime, she told me what happened.

    When she had come home from work the previous day, Big Tom had been extremely hostile to her, instead of greeting her and asking for his dinner, like usual. Then, when she tried to pet him and find out was wrong, he went batshit-crazy, running around her apartment at full-speed, and attacking her when he went by her. He bit and scratched her to the point where she had to hide in the bathroom from him. It went on for about half an hour, and was attacked every time she stuck her head out during that time.

    Finally she was able to get to her bedroom where the phone was, and call her Dad for help. He came over, and the evil cat calmed right down. There was never another episode like that, with the cat. He had just flipped the eff out, and gone crazy for a bit.

    The moral of the story? Cats are deeply weird and sometimes dangerous. Be careful out there!

    • ISTE says:

      injured or sick cats go nuts.

      The only way I know of to find out where a cat is injured is to carefully touch every part of them. The last place you touched before you get bitten is the place where it hurts.

    • Koko says:

      My dad would have just brought his service pistol. End of cat story. I like ’em but I think there’s more wild in cats than dogs. Cat’s are mini versions of a very dangerous animal.

  83. Koko says:

    I know I did go to music school one time.

    This is not jazz. Technically. But no it prolly won’t pass muster.

  84. Koko says:

    And here’s Phil redoing it with the Boss Brass, Rob Mconnell. They crushed out of the Blue from Canada around 1980 as we say. Monster big band. They recorded what we called direct to disk. No studio takes. I don’t think digital existed then or it was brand new. And floored everyone with their crushing accuracy. That’s how good they we’re. Ok I’m an old man.
