    6 deaths is a lot.

    I see old people with pneumonia all the time. Rarely am I not able to rescue them.

    It takes at least 25 layers, wrinkled and folded up, to provide full protection. Don't ask how I know... (OK, Bud told me, but you didn't get that from me.) :p

    On a positive note, I’m happy to report that I have developed a method to test paper currency for the virus! I will perform the test for Polkies free of charge. I will also dispose of any contaminated currency and return the “clean” bills to you, and I’ll even cover shipping....

    Screwdrivers are the best way to prevent the flu. The orange juice has lots of vitamin C and the vodka disinfects. 4 oz of 100 proof Smirnoff and 4 oz of 100% pure Florida OJ. I have 2 or 3 just to be safe.

    250 "possible" cases here in AZ. 26 tested, one positive and the other still waiting on results.


    Later gents, time for me to go out in the remote wilderness, have a nice cold pint and wait for all this to blow over. ;)

    From a pure stock market point of view. It is also great. Not everyone long every stocks. You could short it. Do calls and puts as well.

    It is not really that bad from a financial point of view. If you know how to diversity, hedge, and use all the tools available..

    Sounds like you are still hoping for doom and gloom. Whatever.

    Look at all the hypocrites.
    looks like the top level of Iran's government has been exposed to the virus. I call that a silver lining.

    My family fled Iran and their persecution. They lived through the indiscriminate torture and killing. They saw everything they knew and loved systematically wiped off the face of the earth. And they were among the elites. They gave up everything and tens of millions of dollars that was stripped away from them to make a new life in freedom. When I say what I did, it comes from first-hand, and informed experience.

    You have proven your ignorance. For a long time I have given you the benefit of the doubt, but no more. Welcome to my bozo list, and I hope someday you will be banned.

    If someone else said that, you would call them a "snowflake", like you do here weekly.

    Whatever happened to your family should not preclude you from the same treatment for your comment that you are calling for for me.

    Butchering Mullahs and an ayatollah that are hellbent on destroying the United States and the Nation of Israel are not even remotely the same thing.

    Just for clarification - are you wishing death on ALL the residents of Israel, or just the Jews?

    What, pray-tell, did these people do to you, for you to openly wish them death??
