Join Jim and Greg as they salute the stunning dedication of employees at a polypropylene plant in Pennsylvania. They’re also staggered by more than 26 million jobs lost and discuss how to re-engage the economy responsibly. And they assess data suggesting there were tens of thousands of coronavirus cases in American cities by March 1. Finally, they forecast tonight’s NFL Draft and Greg has fun imagining how National Review drafted Jim Geraghty back in the day.

    I sure would like to find a way to let the advertisers on this podcast know that I DON’T SPEAK SPANISH!!!

    The stories I find say that the company’s facilities in West Virginia and Texas did the same thing too.

    Masks are pandemic theater. Doctors and health professionals wear masks when they need to protect patients from them, not the other way around. Wearing a N95 mask will not prevent you from touching contaminating surfaces – such as those in mass transit. You might as well suck on a pacifier as wear a mask and get the same degree of protection and comfort.

    It should also be remembered that possibly the majority of the construction-type people doing “clean-up” at Ground Zero after 9/11 were unpaid volunteers. Some restaurants and other businesses in the area provided them with food, water, and other supplies, often at no cost to the workers. And a lot of them wound up with cancer or other ailments due to exposure to dust, asbestos, and other hazards.

    My attitude is, if I can’t understand the commercial, then I win!

    Exactly. Just remember these advertisers are paying for Ricochet’s podcasts. There are worse things than their commercials.

    Me gustan los anuncios en español.

    Cheaper than Duolingo Pro.
