I’m going to be thinking about all their efforts to collect DNA, not just in China, but through foreign companies in which they invest and/or control.  And I’m going to look at the scoreboard to see who’s dying from the disease to see if there might be a genetic breakdown.  Preview Open

A not-quite rebuttal to Susan’s post on the perils of contact tracing (when performed by government employees over the phone)… As I previously mentioned on R>, I’ve been intrigued by the Distributed Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (DP-3T) protocol as a voluntary way of notifying individuals who may have been exposed to COVID-19 without revealing how that […]

SARS-Covid-19, or whatever the cognoscenti (that means people who smell like they think a lot) are calling it this week, is one odd little bugger. I’ve been soaking up everything I could read, and I’ve more than once had to ask for remedial explanations from a couple of specialists I found – one an underpaid […]

On this week’s Gen Xish episode, Teri and Fingers talk about preparations for a pending meat shortage, the fallout for China and why the Left can’t tell the difference between the Gadsden and Confederate flags.

They also go over the best one hit wonders from the 80s, including … Rappin’ Rodney? And can the woke crowd handle “Turning Japanese”?

The chairman of Tyson Foods has issued a stark warning to Americans following the shuttering of multiple meat processing plants across the country: “The food supply chain is breaking.” This warning took the form of full page ads in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Quote of the Day: Central Planning and Coronavirus

 

“The great myth of central planning is that capital can be rationally allocated through the elimination of profit and incentive. And that will just magically produce the right outcomes for society.” – Tom Luongo

The Chicom Coronovirus lockdown is a great illustration of this quote. The government is deciding what businesses are “essential” and “nonessential.” The reality is under normal circumstances (under circumstances when the government is not picking winners and losers that is) no private-sector job is nonessential. A profit-making company cannot afford nonessential employees. Too many of them and the business goes broke.

It sent a shudder up and down my spine today when I heard the malevolent partisan, US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) echo something I called for a couple of days ago – a national commission on a path forward, and lessons learned, from Coronavirus. Except, we have VERY DIFFERENT approaches. Schiff wants Democrats in Congress […]

I am not an expert on any subject and do not profess to be, though I am pretty good at cornhole. I am merely an observer, a social commentarian, if you will. So, what I have to say will not shake the universe (probably not), or ignite a movement (definitely not), but it is my […]

Army Rolling in Homeland Defense

 

This is how we are not Italy. This is part of why we were ranked #1 in the world for pandemic preparedness. As Navy hospital ships prepare to leave their docks, Army field hospital units have been given deployment orders. Ride to the sound of the sirens?
