Nope, no jokes in what I said above about this pandemic. Guess we just have to wait and see eh? By the end of May things should be clear enough either way.

I guess what I don't understand in this whole thing is.  If this virus came from bats then where did they get it?   ::)

As I've read it, seems bats carry a lot of viral load all the time, but most guys don't harm them. It's the meeting between those bugs and humans and other critters (pigs or pangolins are both suggested in this case) where things get sticky.

The Guard here had some units called up to transport goods around state. My son and wife are working from home. Base is about empty. SIDE NOTE -Harvard had 3 prof arrested last dec for dealing with Wuhan china 2 of the 3 were from china one was a PRA member, don't know about the other. FBI caught them attempting to take samples of this stuff back there . Had been working on this awhile. Wuhan has a PRA bio lab , And do not forget all china companies are connected to THE PRA. I only found it as a side note in a DOD news letter. Gee would china kill off their own people!! From 1960-1963 they killed about 30 million. No they wouldn't let a bio bug loose , Would they. Any way no one in my county or the direct co around had any hint of it yet. RUMORs !!!.

Also on, CNN.com and NPR had a story and you can find it on the DOJ site if you dig.

On the darker side of this... China's awareness of the bug (leaving original intention or lack thereof aside for the moment - I have various thoughts on this but would prefer to keep thinking about those quietly) and suppression around word being spread, this article goes into some of the dynamics in Italy:

And then there's this video distributed by a Chinese government funded news outlet, slickly made, obviously intending to tug at heartstrings and capitalize on the West's collective guilt complex:

Another awesome article... how they test for Corona Virus, and how come the South Koreans are much faster at it.

I think S. Korea, like so much of the rest of the world, when the Govt. says you will test, it's not a suggestion if you know what I mean.  S. Korea is a small country and easier to mobilize.  That said, CDC "might" have dropped the ball on this one, but we're catching up.

corona virus hasn't changed anything for me thus far , all the deaths i've seen have been through a hawke 4-12, life is good . was pulled over yesterday for driving 30 mph and failure to use turn signal. officer was freindly and wore no mask , nicely instructed me to be careful and use signals, i said thank you sir and drove away.  the only sign i've seen of corona virus is my favorite junkyard has temporarily closed, unless i get corona or get abducted by aliens i might have a 58th birthday this month . may none of you get corona and all be healthy and happy!
i've done a lot of stupid things in my life , but i'm probably not quite finished :)

I can assure you, that you won't be abducted by space aliens. Here in Roswell, NM at least, there are none, because the local's found out they taste just like chicken.

I find this really sad.... Yes, you are 100% correct, nobody can force you to wear a mask.... However, deciding not to do so is exactly the same as running a red light because it is your right to decide whether to stop or not.... After all, it's your life, right?.... Pity about those who trust others to do the right thing, and obey an "arbitrary" law.... It is my understanding that personal rights stop where they affect the rights and freedoms of others, but maybe that is just when convenient....  ???

The consequences of not wearing a mask are obvious, and not doing so shows an utter disrespect for the lives, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of the rest of the human race.... I sincerely hope that regardless of your "rights", you always do the "right" thing to protect your friends, family, and those of us you have never met....

Masks are NOT a political statement.... They are to help prevent a spread of a deadly disease where the case count in the USA has doubled in 3 weeks.... If you want to stop it from doing so again, PLEASE wear a mask....
