Wu-WHO: The Dancing Xi’s Lie Masters

With apologies to Gary Zukav, world-class physicist and author of “Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics.”  I can’t resist turning a good phrase.

Chinese should be barred from Statistics. But, as dictatorial States will, they have no problem making up a False Reality and shoving it down people’s throats.

Vitriol?  No – China has moved into Xi Full Lie now by again changing its statistical methodology for  the third time in two weeks.  Third time’s a charm? As one news organization called it: “Hubei Changes Virus Count Method With Data Mistrust Growing.” Oh-oh. You think?

Where would we be if the original methodology had remained “untweaked”?  On our Peoplenomics site last Saturday we predicted that today, we might see a death toll of 2,562.  The good news is the death toll has under shot our forecast and actually came in today at 2,130.  We were about 20% high.

Similarly, we were expecting a “cases count” today of around 110,989.  Again, good news as the “official” number is just 75,751.  Did the virus really just stop?  Hell no.  How it’s being counted changed.

YOUR PROBLEM is to figure out whether this is (choose one) a) recalculation, b) misdirection, c) an outright lie to save the global economy.

What about cases, though?  IF we made the same 20% error on the “cases” side, we should have seen a confirmed cases count today of around 92,000.  Instead?  China and the WHO roll with that 75,751 figure.  We’re just crazy-enough to believe the real number (using the old method) would probably be around 92,000.  But we’re not Xi whizzes…

What was it Mark Twain wrote?  “There’s lies, damn lies, and statistics.”  Things haven’t changed when comes to humans, numbers, and denial.  Chinese Roulette is the Big Game in town.

Nevertheless, we appreciate that the Chinese president is in a terrible financial fix:  If the Chinese don’t pronounce the is virus passing, people will not go back to work.  If that happens, the Chinese stock market will implode and take down the global bubble in the process.  He doesn’t want that so let’s mix up the numbers again.  Side bet on revision four being in our future?

Which may be used as an excuse ultimately, to make made-up-money (like Bitcoin, $9,610 this morning)  illegal by governments anxious to keep people invested in “sanctioned financial vehicles.”

Meanwhile, though, those old (and easily-cleaned) gold and silver ducats you’ve been hoarding for years are waking up. 

Gold is at a 7-year high today having touched $1,615.30 on the metal dealer Kitco.com’s site earlier.  Silver fixed at $18.29.  Since silver has multiple medical applications, and is a strong antibacterial, we reckon it could have a decent run.  As always, this is not an investment tip…Just a report of real data any old damn-fool can find on the net.  Being both, I’m Ure proof.

Stock Futures today aren’t sure how to play this global virus-drama.  Down about 40-points earlier for the Dow.  The balance of COVID headlines hint this mess is miles from solved.

While U.S. cases have remained stable at 15, we would not be surprised to see that edge up toward 22 by next Tuesday.  Guessing beyond that,, how about the low 30’s the following week?  Unless, of course, public health officials get very lucky.

Canada, meanwhile is holding at 8 cases, but our 12-day guess would be 12 to 14 cases.  We’ll just have to wait and see.

My buddy the major thinks the coming of spring and warmer weather is the tonic…does marvels cutting down on common colds.  Not to spritz cold water here, but what if it IS  a bioweapon and heat makes it worse, not better?

We’ll just hold to our slow-motion plans to beef-up our hedges until the data becomes definitive.

Delicious Demo-Babble

We really like the  NY Post’s honest appraisal of the democrat fiasco in Vegas last night.

Michael Bloomberg’s campaign implodes onstage in Nevada Democratic debate 

The  Post  wasn’t the only media outlet reporting it,  The Drudge Report poll this morning showed Bernie Sanders  came in #1, followed by Amy Klobuchar  at #2 and Warbucks Bloomberg in 3rd (Poke-a-Warren was 4th).

Some advice? We don’t trust online polls any more than we trust North Korea of Tehran.

It’s not that  Drudge isn’t  trying to poll fairly.  Of course he is.  It’s just that the  candidates in the Deperation Party all know polls drive voters.  It’s all part of the art of perception management.  The presidential wannabe’s hire poll-stuffers and have code ready to  midlead voters who can’t be trusted to think for themselves.

Meanwhile, we’ve been right predicting the Big Shot Money would attempt to Re-Screw Bernie.  Almost heartening that the the two bit socialist beat Michael Warbucks and the salt-banning circus of rich dems.

In fairness to Michael Warbucks, though (and his insults of farmers aside, because they were taken out of context) he did a few things as New York mayor that make sense.  Like his New York “black roof ban” which may not save us from climate change, but we’re huge fans of white elastomeric coatings on rooftops, ourselves.  And the only sugar we use around here is the odd tablespoon of brown sugar or mollasses in BBQ sauce.  But, that should be a matter of education and choice.

Bloomberg is proof of what, then?  Eventually, if you talk enough, your foot will go in your mouth. Even if it doesn’t go all the way in, someone will maliciously edit so it looks like it did.

Bloomberg also shows that if you make-up enough new laws, a few will make sense (*like his smoking bans and the black roof ban).  The rest?   Well, maybve we have too many laws, already.

Philly Fed Survey

Just out – more gasoline for the bulls to latch onto in the Philly Fed outlook:

The diffusion index for current general activity rose nearly 20 points this month to 36.7, its highest reading since February 2017 (see Chart). The percentage of firms reporting increases (52 percent) this month exceeded the percentage reporting decreases (15 percent). The index for new orders increased 15 points to 33.6, its highest reading since May 2018. Over 50 percent of the firms reported an increase in new orders, up from 46 percent in January. The current shipments index increased 2 points. Both the unfilled orders and delivery times indexes moved into positive territory this month, suggesting slightly higher unfilled orders and slower delivery times.:

Futures that had been falling were buoyed a bit by the data.

And the NY Fed Repo Depot?  In with $65.25-billion to light ‘er up toward Dow 30,000.

Trend Channeling

Time to check where we are in the 140day mass murder cycle as a Gunman kills 9 at hookah bars near Frankfurt, Germany.

Look who’s buying cash flow: Morgan Stanley Is Buying E-Trade For $13 Billion, Outmaneuvers Archrival Goldman With Pivot To Retail.

With PPI up – which can sometimes foretell inflation to come – and with rates low, what’s not to love about buying a home? Housing Market Potential Reaches Two-Year High, According to First American Potential Home Sales Model.

Someone may be late for the party: Cleveland Browns player arrested after 157 pounds of marijuana found in a car.  Don’t look now, but if that’s $300/ounce high-end shake, that’s like three quarters of a million worth.  Just guessing it wasn’t seed & stems.

And it’s cold here in East Texas this morning with a high today of 45 and sub-freezing tonight.  All part of  A winter storm that could deliver black ice and accumulating snow across the South…We’ve put 4″ of rain in the gauge in the last 2-days, as well.

T’ain’t Climate – It’s Weather

Zeus the Cat  – our associate Editor-in-Chief – refused to leave the comfort of the house this morning.   “Just be sure and mention I’m taking a “Climate Day,” he explained.  “Any democrat smart enough to read your site will understand purrfectly…”  ( I assured him the term “democrat smart-enough” was an oxymoron.)

Sure enough – everyone is STILL blaming everyone else for climate.  Confusing climante and seasonal variance of weather and yeah, climate has been chagning for a million years.  No taxes and no hysteria.

The WaPo  rolled today with Facing climate change, Boston must gird itself for an era of rising water — or be inundated. OMG – run from Boston!

More histrionics as the  NY Times was trying to save the other coast in “What Rising Seas Mean for San Francisco.

Delusion is a hard thing for people to get past – and the same dynamics that make economics so difficult to comprehend also drive climate insanity.

You see, in economics, inflation is sold as “prices going up.”  In fact, it’s really the  purchasing power of money going down.  So it takes more money and that feels like prices going up – in a sense, they are.  But it’s because money’s worthless.  You following?

Similarly, sea level ain’t rising, necessarily, either. We’re not making a lot more water, are we?

Global  subsidence is a real thing.  Rain on America long enough, and it will all wash out into the Gulf of Mexico. As a matter of fact fact, you can find places along the east coast where pilings have moved many of feet due tro crustal movement over the past century.

Besides causing periodic mid-continent disasters – like the New Madrid earthquake – tectonic plate shift argues that in the long-term parts of the US will slide into the ocean off all three coasts.

All the tax money in the world can’t fix it.  Our ancestors, lacking legions of financial engineers and climate grant writers with dreams of buying Tesla’s and idiot climate extremists and crooked media, just moved inland a bit.  Port Royal slid into the ocean off Jamaica 1692 taking a city full of pirates and consorts with it.  Nature just does things like that, once in a while.

If you don’t like the local odds of “rising sea levels” (which we figure is more like land movements) in places like Boston or the Bay area, put your mind at ease and move to higher ground.

Man’s greatest folly is money.  It fuels the wrong-headed belief that we can buy off Nature.  Sure, we can build a few more floating bridges, but compound interest on our existing National Debt  will surely cause a global die-off long before Boston goes under water.

If you want to listen to the pip-squeaks and demagogues of climate, have at it. But take a lesson from  Zeus the Cat.

It’s a scam – so use it like one.  Take a “Climate Day” off. You might save Boston single-handedly.

Write when it warms up, or when Diogenes finds an honest candidate for office.

    “If the Chinese don’t pronounce the is virus passing, people will not go back to work. If that happens, the Chinese stock market will implode”

    Sounds like a “Damn if you do or Damn if you don’t” type of situation. If people stay at home the economy collapses. If people go back to work and spread the virus around the economy collapses.

    Bad Bad Bad!!!

  2. Regarding the 15 US cases…..

    Monday it was 15.
    Tuesday they brought 13 cases from the cruise ship. Later in the day it was 29 no 28.
    Wednesday we are back to 15.

    Have we lost count or the ability/will to do so correctly?

    • Disregard my previous. It appears that they are transferring 5 existing cases to Spokane. Can’t find any reference to any new cases.

  3. BHO44’s warning actually rang true – last night’s Dem debate was “a circular firing squad.” No one was spared, plus each participant gave Trump ample optics to use against the eventual nominee. And Pocahontis putting a literal verbal flame thrower to everyone on stage was a grim sight to behold (and an assault on one’s ear drums). Brokered convention seems more likely now. Failed impeachment + failed debates + brokered (undemocratic) convention = 4 more years of the Donald. The clock is ticking – loudly – VERY loudly for the Dems. Can Hillary or anyone else possibly save them?

    • If Hillary somehow gets into the fray, then the circle of America’s dumbing down is complete. The blinded 50% from Trump supporters and the other dumb half that has to put up with That throwing up in your mouth feeling of Hillary. Ugh!

  4. “black roof ban”

    Anecdotally I have a 6′-0″ backyard privacy fence. Last summer I stained it flat black with the intent of extending the grow season in my yard.

    Generally it’s working within the first few feet of the fence. Snow along the fence line seemed to melt a lot faster this year Vs other parts of the yard.

  5. We will have nothing but ads on the MSM in the major markets for Mini-Mike until the day before the election, maybe more than just the major markets too. He has the money to keep the propaganda machine rolling!

  6. I still feel that Bloomberg will come out ahead. Last night was a disaster for him. He was prepped, but he didn’t listen to his staff. It’s the billionaire syndrome. Ego got in the way. The same thing happened to Trump. Disastrous first debate for Trump…but recovered and hit the ground at rallies where he was more comfortable.

    Bloomberg has more empathy than he showed last night…and while stubborn, will soon realize that getting bad reviews from the pundits is not acceptable to him. Like Trump, Bloomberg is a brand…His news organization, and other financial companies that bear his name can’t afford a mis-step. He will NOT take the Trump road and double down on his foibles. He will adjust and learn from this humbling experience.

    Plus, he does have the money to put the words he should have said on the debate stage and put those into words into paid advertising and appearances. And not much Trump can do to battle what Warren pointed out last night. Bloomberg has a NDA problem, Trump has NDA’s and hush money. Bloomberg called a woman a horse faced lesbian…Trump also called a woman Horseface…Must be a New York thing.

    The difference is…Bloomberg is a real “make something from nothing” multi-billionaire. Trump is a trust fund brat that inherited 450 million, filed for bankruptcy, screwing millions from hard working businesses that put their trust in Trump….only to be stepped on later.

    Bloomberg is a moderate…leaning right…knows, lives and breathes the numbers, preaches the numbers on Bloomberg news and is a tough boss that demands perfection, conciliation, collaboration and results. I have read up a lot on Mayor Mike…he knows the skeletons in Trumps closet better than anyone…He lived them and the reason he is running is because he is disgusted by those skeletons of the worst President in the history of this great country.

      • Bloomie,

        Just like you do with the dumba#* we have as President now, right? At least Bloomberg has a real business and real billions…not unlike your fake con man that refuses to prove his wealth by releasing his tax returns. He can’t release them…it would prove that he has been lying to all of his base this entire time…it’s so damn obvious….

        Trump is the least intelligent politician in modern history and YOU excuse anything he says and does. Yep…we have had you sheeples number all along. Fools all of you.

      • “Trump is the least intelligent politician in modern history”

        This is most-assuredly inaccurate, but if it were true: Should any of the current crop of Democrats be elected, he’d instantly lose the distinction…

  7. ohh noo George! 2 passengers on Diamond Princess have died from Too Wong Flu.

    3 Things the Coronavirus does not like: Heat, Humidity and Sunlight(UV) – Me thinks my pirate ways down here on Carribian Coast of Central America is a good place to be..not to mention the cheap rum,cheap weed,Cuban cigars and of coarse Pirate Hookers..arrrgggh ! yea they can be a lil coarse..

    Not made up money – Scarce Digital Currency and Store of Value. geeesh man c’mon

    No Bitcoin 4 U!

  8. One more thing…Yes, Bloomberg is spending a lot of money…HIS MONEY. The other candidates, including Trump are spending YOUR money…The others plead to go to mynamehere.com and contribute to their campaigns. Bloomberg’s best line of the night was. “Well I guess you can go to my web site…but I don’t want your money”.

    And again… it’s hard to buy an election. Look at Tom Steyer. He has spent more to date than anyone. People still have to believe in the candidate, I said this earlier, Geico is the biggest insurance ad spender…I use Progressive… Anheuser Busch is biggest beer spender, I hate AB products and haven’t had one in over a decade. I am a Russian River Brewing Co aficionado. Pliny the Younger is cult status beer.

    In the end, while we may see one candidate more in TV than the others…it’s about who can beat Trump..or on the other end of the spectrum who can Trump beat. It will be interesting

    • @marx

      no matter what beer you drink or what insurance company you use or what candidate you support…


    • My understanding is that the rate of Republican fundraising is outpacing the Democrat pace.

      Bloomberg dot com reports that Mr. B. Has spent $409 million since last November whereas Mr. T. has spent $39.7 million. Perhaps Mr. B.’s spending will surpass in this one campaign the reputed $3 billion fundraising amassed by Mr. and Mrs. C. in the last 30 years.

      Perhaps it’s accurate to say of all that “fools and their money are soon parted”.

    • “U.S. Dependence on Pharmaceutical Products From China”
      August 14, 2019

      “Last month, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission held a hearing on the United States’ growing reliance on China’s pharmaceutical products. The topic reminded me of a spirited discussion described in Bob Woodward’s book, Fear: Trump in the White House. In the discussion, Gary Cohn, then chief economic advisor to President Trump, argued against a trade war with China by invoking a Department of Commerce study that found that 97 percent of all antibiotics in the United States came from China. “If you’re the Chinese and you want to really just destroy us, just stop sending us antibiotics,” he said.”

      Farther down the article it said:
      “While the potential exposure to raw material supply disruptions drives part of our fear, concern about the safety and efficacy of Chinese-made pharmaceuticals is another component. In the summer of 2018, one of China’s largest domestic vaccine makers sold at least 250,000 substandard doses of vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough. It was the latest in a slew of scandals caused by poor quality drug products made in China over the last decade. In 2008, the contamination of a raw ingredient imported from China and used to make heparin, a blood-thinning drug, was associated with at least eighty-one deaths the United States. According to an investigative journalist, fraud and manipulation of quality data is still endemic in Chinese pharmaceutical firms.”

    • It’s rather a contrast between the airlift of cruiseship Canadians today by a Portuguese common carrier from Haneda against the visuals presented a couple days back when the US DoD carrier evacuated Americans back home. One trusts the plane will be scoured before next leaving Lisbon.

      The icing on the cake is an entitled passenger couple hurling venom at the Canadian government for not getting them to Canada more quickly. Funnily enough their online resume shows them as Hong Kongers employed in HK since 2009. Any port in a storm…

  9. for Jim M on February 20, 2020 at 09:05:
    Your disappointment with the media’s ability to accurately count new cases of Wuhan virus then watching as the numbers are “adjusted” by the various “authorities” is understandable. Very frustrating to understand that what we are fed as the “facts” of any matter these days must first be approved for release to the public.
    You only get the information that the bigshots in mass media ‘allow’ you to be exposed to.
    The net gets you some relief from the manipulative control of approved information but if there is disagreement from the MSM, they will steamroll over any disputed output from those outside of the powerhouses of BIG MEDIA.
    You will probably spend all of your time in front of a screen, searching for ‘facts’ on a matter to back up your take on it, only to realize with the next click that the exact opposite ‘fact’ opposing the first gets equal exposure.
    Nothing substantive is learned, time is wasted, useful knowledge is nowhere to be found. There is not much useful to be gained from reading opposing or falsified releases and there is almost no way to confirm anything in the ‘news’ found or read on the internet.
    Once you learn that a problem exists that calls for action on your part, plan to address it if it comes your way. Sitting there in front of your screen endlessly clicking on the next story while hoping to read something on an issue that agrees with what you are hoping for is a waste of your time.
    Most of the sort of ‘reporting’ nowadays is intended to make you fear something or someone or neutralize an opposing point of view.
    Turn off that sort of crap, arise from your chair and get a life.

    • Not dwelling, just commenting. MSM accuses China of lying but our ‘official’ channels change as regularly as theirs. I ask people in the _ICU departments. Personally when I can to get the look on their face.

  10. It will be a long time before my place slides into the sea! That doesn’t save me from an entire winter of overcast wet skies though – not what I signed up for when I moved here. It’s been colder than normal since late November and much wetter, but the overcast is what makes it seem septic and dismal. At this elevation, direct sun elevates the perceived temperature and the mood. I do think sun will help temper any virus, since it both elevates our vitamin D(and possibly other endogenous chemicals), and tends to destroy pathogens in the air. That’s my hope and expectation – IF the skies clear and stay that way for a bit.

    If not, there’s always the O3 generator, UV-C lamp, and lots of high intensity LED tubes.

  11. I didn’t watch the “debate” (‘cuz it ain’t) because I don’t waste time on timewasters. FOX polling showed that Warren actually won the “debate” (because she took an aggressive stance) but Bernie won the night (because everyone was so busy beating up the pompous Maoist they forgot to beat up on the sanctimonious Stalinist.)

    I don’t care. The entire lot of them are not worth two sh!ts from an incontinent goose.

    I find it utterly appalling that a major political corporation can not find better specimens than this collection of human garbage, to tout as our “choices” in a National Election.

    Heck, Jeb and Kasich were shiftless RINO neocons, worth an order or two of magnitude less than Mr. Trump could ever be, but they’re both at least an order of magnitude better than any of this dreck. Maybe Perez should try to buy one of them while he still has his job…? :\

    • “I don’t care. The entire lot of them are not worth two sh!ts from an incontinent goose.”

      Not one of those six hinted in the diection of reforming our monetary system — which (in the end) will terminate all political arguments. ;-(

      Please study the history of the “Weimar Republic” in Germany.

    • Ray, it would do you good to watch the debates. Just for comparison. Watch a Trump rally, then watch the debates…Trump moans, groans and utters nonsense and ape like grunts…..the debates have really intelligent people that allow us to make intelligent decisions on whether we agree with them or not. I don’t agree with much, except with what Mayor Pete and Klobuchar have to say. Bloomberg needs to rebound…but they all give me hope because they are all passionate about what they are saying and do so in such a compelling and perspicacious way that makes our POTUS seem Neanderthal in comparison.

      • Hitler was passionate, so was Mao, so were Pol Pot and the Russian despots. Passion misdirected is never a good thing.

        You say these people are intelligent. If this is, in fact true, then they are incredibly dangerous to all Americans on a personal level. Unless one or more of them is stupid or incredibly lacking in foresight, every one of them is a schemer and intends to intentionally take the United States down a path from which there is no fork, to a place from which there is no escape, and a plane of existence upon which individual Rights and freedoms don’t.

        No, thank you…

  12. Interesting point on statistics! Most don’t realize statistics are based on ZERO knowledge. Just as economics is based on ZERO morality.

    Statistics change when additional knowledge above zero is added. Example, remember the 3 door TV game show? Hidden behind 2 doors are two great prizes, behind the third door a “nanny goat!” At the start, contestant gets to pick a door, the show host opens one of the two remaining doors (not the one picked by the contestant) showing a great prize, usually lots of money or a car. It becomes clear to the contestant, the remaining door, or the one he picked can have a “goat” or a car. Contestant is given a choice to stay with his original pick, or switch his choice to the unopened door. What would you do?

    Statistics show, it is advantageous to stay with your original choice. Why? AT the beginning of the game, probability of picking the door with a goat is 1/3. When the host opens a door, this adds NEW information, where one door is no longer in the selection, so the selection now is
    between two doors. The probability of picking a goat is 1/2. Much greater than 1/3. New information has changed the statistic.

    Pretty well the same with economics. Local bakery burns down, bread in limited supply. Price per loaf goes through the roof! Now suppose a bakery burns down at a Hutterite colony, bread is rationed. Morality now enters the equation modifying the economic expectation.

    It is not that statistics or economics are a BS science, it is a science that works. If one has the underlying principles to account for the affect they have on ZERO knowledge or morality, they work!

    And that is where THEY have us! By not telling us exactly what they base their stats on, they can make them whatever they want them to be.

    Do you believe in Polls? I can run a poll based on sound statistical principles that show Putin will be the surprise dark horse candidate at the democratic convention. Polls are accurate as long as we are told how they are obtained. Sure, if I go out on the street and ask the question, “Do you think Putin will show up as a dark horse candidate at the democratic convention?” I will get a stupid look and will be told, “Are you CRAZY?” Yet there are “black swan” events, ones that are most unlikely to show up, but eventually do.

    So the results of this poll were, “100 people at the NYC Library said Putin will be a dark horse candidate at the democratic convention.” Just on that statement alone, how believable is that? Yet, if we were told, it took 100,000 results to get those 100 people, and that 99,900 said, “Are you Crazy!” With that information it paints a different picture of the poll result. “Its been skewed and we have been screwed!”

    It all boils down to this! Whatever system is in place, someone will always find a way to work it to their advantage. So BEWARE!

    • FWIW: The probability of winning is 2/3 if you switch doors. It’s to your advantage to switch doors in the 3-door problem.

    • What am I missing here? After one door is opened, the probability of a goat is 50% regardless of which unopened door is picked, so staying with your original choice or picking the other one is irrelevant. Unless you can hear the goat through a door, your odds of winning a real prize are still 50% regardless of which unopened door you pick.

  13. Couple of thoughts on COVID-19

    (1) Haven’t seen North Korea (China’s next door neighbor) show up on the list yet. Maybe we should look there for the cure.

    (2) Went to the gym this morning and several people were coughing and sneezing. Gym instructor had completely lost her voice with some upper respiratory infection. We seem to be in full blown flu season. How could anyone tell if someone was spreading corona virus or not?

    • You can’t. I already told everyone my flu to Sepsis/double pneumonia in 4 days story. So tell me, if it starts out like the flu, and in 4 days you are almost dead or dead, does it matter if it is called Coronavirus? Or put it another way…if you get the flu and die, does the coronavirus matter? IF you get so sick that your temp is hitting 105 and you are shaking and you are coughing and you are having trouble breathing…don’t wait go to the ER….but, as what happened to me, they were FULL. I stayed in the actual ER for 2 days before an ICU bed became available. There are so many things that have to go right for one to live….one of which is a hospital that will take you AND can treat you with the correct medication and life support.

      • “IF you get so sick that your temp is hitting 105 and you are shaking and you are coughing and you are having trouble breathing…don’t wait go to the ER….but, as what happened to me, they were FULL.”

        I am so sorry to hear that coma.. a few years ago when the H1N1 flu hit really hard.. I got a call to let me know of a young woman that had it.. she did go to the ER.. couldn’t be seen in the clinic because she didn’t have the money or insurance and was sent home because she wasn’t sick enough. they put her in a medical induced coma.. sad site that little girl was one scared as hell.. seen her not that long ago in walmart.. she seen me came up and gave me the biggest hug..I had totally forgot and she had grown up in the meantime… ( they will diagnose but treatment.. well the old addage cash gas or ass no one rided the bus for free goes into play.. unless it is life threeatening ) she was sent home and went into convulsions in the middle of the night leaving a young girl to fend for herself along with her toddler brother.. sad..
        so considering the coronavirus.. and with the attitude.. we don’t take care of them till they are sick enough that it is life threatoning.. and now with kansas putting people with medical expenses in jail.. how will this go.. people wait right now till the last minute to go to a doctor and if you don’t have insurance you are sent to the ER..
        This could get very ugly quick.. the college kid hacking in the back as he makes your eggs..

    • Anecdotal reports are that there is an outbreak going in NK, and NK is doing summary executions of locals who don’t follow the protocols.
      H1N1 is pretty much everywhere according to the last CDC Fluview update. There are two influenza vaccines available for those with egg allergies.
      CDC testing is the only way to find out the corona bad news domestically. The CDC is from the government, and they will be there to help.

  14. The Bite Sized Bitter Billionaire showed U last night just how Un-Electable he is – man was that a bad performance.

    What a ticket Bloomberg/Clinton

    ohhh PULEASE bring us this terrible tandem to the election – PULEASE. If only so I can get more POPCORN for the Dem. CONvention.. as the Sandernistas go Apesh!t Crazy when they get BOHICA’d – like a mini unCivil War with lots of guerilla warfare. rimshot please!

  15. “But, as dictatorial States will, they have no problem making up a False Reality and shoving it down people’s throats.”

    And how does it differ from our ditatorial state? Don’t tell us that we have a vote! It’s all illusionary, because Big Money rules regardless of who and what we vote for.

  16. “Similarly, we were expecting a “cases count” today of around 110,989. Again, good news as the “official” number is just 75,751. Did the virus really just stop? Hell no. How it’s being counted changed.”

    Uncle Joe was right all along — it matters who counts the sesults!

    On another note, assuming the US of A would have had a ruling class, like the PRC has now, after victory in 1945. Our globe would have been at peace by now, imho. People of the world would have had a chance to live in peace and harmony, and enjoy the fruits of their labor. However,wth our present system — what have we really accomplished? You, yourself point out, “the worst is yet to come.”

  17. I’m in no position to back my comments , but consider…

    China has been aggressively competing against the US et al on the world stage. Yes ?

    China has been extremely beefing up its military. Yes again ?

    China has been building those islands much to the dismay of countries like Japan , Vietnam , the Philippines , and of course the US. Uh huh ?

    Pop quiz.

    Why can they do this ?

    They gots da money !!!

    Wuhan is one easy way to fix all of that. Plausible deniability comes along with this for free !!!

    China sounds screwed one way or another. At minimum , post Wuhan , any smart board members would demand that products and manufacturing would at least have the ability to transition to a different country at a moments notice. At best , get the hell out. We got our manufacturing out several years ago while the writing was clearly on the wall ( not the Great one ) for all to see. Never looked back with regrets.

    This one ain’t gonna be pretty !

    • “Why can they do this ?”

      They are the planets manufacturers.. all of us support their communities rather than our own… another more interesting point..

      china is in 57 countries and none of them with military activities going on.. the usa.. I read in one place we were in 176 but the official count is a hundred and fifty plus.. with over half of them active with military activities going on..


      rather than fix vital infrastructure.. we spend our money on military actions rather than infrastructure repairs and maintenance..


      the other thing is.. the vast majority of our military is ..( SOMEPLACE ELSE) Ron Paul brought this up during his campaign years ago that we needed to pull our troops closer to home because we basically have left our borders open and unprotected.. and now with our Demoralcraps saying let them in.. let them in they don’t need to come to the usa legally … our borders are wide open with people jumping the fence..in my mind that is putting a greater burden on the laborers because we now have to support them. they don’t pay taxes.. so it is up to us ..from what I have read there is also an 11.5 percent, of global household financial wealth resides in tax havens in offshore accounts all to avoid paying their fair share.. the demoralcraps all crying for three years because the president wanted to tax incoming goods and services.. excuse me.. we have to get it from someplace and with the loss of jobs sent overseas and tax revenue being hidden away by some that don’t want to pay…
      what could we have done with a half trillion a year on roads and schools and gas lines power lines medical for the citizens..

      Of course.. IF… people just didn’t spend a dime… on anything for two weeks.. what affect would that have .. to get a point accross to the idiots I mean brilliant people in our legislative branches.. no dining out.. just buy their groceries and pay their bills but don’t spend a dime on anything else..

      the fool has a great article on the subject..


  18. Collin’s support has never been lower in her 24 yrs as Senator since she acquitted Trump & voted for Kavanaugh:

    Warren threw the punches (oops, women aren’t allowed to have a brain according to the disparaging remarks on Urban Survival)….

  19. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/02/politics/putin-2020-us-presidential-election-joke-intl/index.html

    OTFLMAO… my wife was just watching the evening news and the story about putin talking about the 2020 election.. she asks me.. why in the world is putin so interested in the election for…

    I laughed and she said whats so funny.. I said honey he is doing exactly what I would do.. he was wrongly accused to have medled in the last election because everyone wanted Trump out after he said that she that should not be talked about should be in jail… enough so they spent three plus years doing absolutely nothing but whine over crap that should never have been whined over..and tried to destroy the office of the president non stop.. even now they still talk about it on the news.. and they spent billions of dollars on this horrible smear campaign..

    He is just being a smart azz… they caused so much greif in everyones life disrupted anything good that they could have accomplished again.. for another four years….. so why not toss in a little doubt to start the next election off right.. LOL…

    I am sure we are the butt of all the jokes in other countries.. I can’t even tell you how many times I have had someone I was yaking to ask me what in the hell is wrong with everyone in DC..

  20. Thousands Urged To ‘Self-Quarantine’ Across America as Statistician Warns Numbers Don’t Add Up

    In California, where diseases already have an easy time moving around cities thanks to unsanitary conditions and a large homeless population, more than 5,400 people have been asked by the state health department to quarantine themselves.

    Melody Goodman, an associate biostatistics professor at New York University’s School of Global Public Health, told Barron’s about her reservations.

    “I have never in my years seen an r-squared of 0.99,” she said, referring to an analysis of Chinese numbers. “As a statistician, it makes me question the data.”

    The r-squared value deals with the correlation and predictability of data. The closer the value is to 1, the more predictable a particular set of data becomes. With something as inherently unpredictable as a virus, Goodman said .7 would be more realistic — and even that would be “really good.”

    Entire article may be found here:


    • California does not have unsanitary conditions. About as pristine as it gets. And thanks to our mayor, our homeless are contained in Navigation centers. Now…I was just in the Midwest, in St Louis…now that is unsanitary. When you see red stains on the sidewalks and then hear gun shots, you know it’s time to get the hell out of there. Very depressing city. Pretty much like a lot of post industrial cities in that part of the country.

      • “Very depressing city. Pretty much like a lot of post industrial cities in that part of the country.”

        I agree with you but In the whole country.. the industrial cities that once bbn boasted about their manufacturing abilities look ten times worse than many war torn and destroyed countries.
        Retching poverty and illness..little hope for a bright future. Unless theres someone.. the great white hope…his blonde hair tossed back as he works diligently to right the wrongs of past decades of legislators without work ethics.

  21. Are Texans for sale…?

    Anti-Gun Bloomberg Group Spending Millions in Bid To Turn Texas Anti-2A

    According to the Washington Examiner, Everytown for Gun Safety — Bloomberg’s astroturf gun control group — is planning to use what it believes to be the changing demographics of Texas for a major ad push it hopes will lead to more stringent gun control laws in both the Lone Star State and Washington, D.C.

    Everytown successfully helped flip the Virginia General Assembly, which voted to pass several gun control measures through the Democratic-held Virginia Legislature this winter.

    The group plans to spend upwards of $60 million, double what is spent in 2018, to swing the historically Republican state of Texas.
