Also Make sure to get the REAL sudafed from behind the pharmacy counter.
Which in many states will put you on a list and if you happen to have bought too much because a few in your family were sick, they will be sending the "King's Men" to "Just follow orders" and kick in your doors, because well... why go after actual criminals when they could harrass law abiding people simply trying to get healthy.

It's not often that I quote my own post, or talk to myself, or bath more than once a week...or rise above being a clown for that matter.

The first two things are absolutely true. The third thing...well...it's mostly true, kinda like that Bilbo Baggins thing, "I like more than half of you less than half of how I like more than half a pint of bourbon deserves drinking...." Hell I don't remember how that goes.

Now here is the curious thing...and it's quite funny, cause, I'm joking about comedy killer grade shit here...and maybe that's it....
Two of you put sad faces on this...and I'm laughing again cause I'm thinking....
"Shit! Who told them their name wasn't in the hat for the drawing?"

I'm sorry, I've been up since 1900 yesterday, so I'm a bit silly today.

That's not even starting to be fun...

Our mailman just came by and informed us that he hasn't slept in 3 days.

Which apparently he does often... because it annoys the wife and he like it.

So 3 days in a row spending all night reading books.

I don't often do that, but I worked off this morning and I've got stuff to do during the day this weekend. If I nap I won't sleep tonight.

LOL all good man, I took your comment as "tongue in cheek" and my "sad face" was meant as the same.

Either way, hope you make it through all this... :)

Can I get my name in the hat now?

At least the Japanese had the correct idea of what would be one of the best ways to slow down a virus going through the population.
Its a good tactic.

Perhaps it will buy some time to develop a vaccine.

but.......

The shits going to run its course.

We know what we know about treating pneumonia.

Protect at risk populations, expect an increased need for ventilators, expect the shit to diminish as the hemisphere leaves cold/flu season behind. Have something in place before next fall.

Are you talking about a worldwide currency collapse? Or just the US dollar or economy? Japan has debt to GDP of 240%, Bank of Japan owns 77% of all ETFs and hovering around deflation for almost 30 years importing their workforce. We are nowhere near those conditions and the best flavor currency on the planet which is why sovereign wealth fund money pours into our treasuries driving yields down. Many investors and especially traders are unhinged right now and the next few months will no doubt be tumultuous, but if you believe we are on the cusp of an 'Economic Collapse' feel free to expound on details.

For income investors this is one of those times you are salivating. For growth/momentum stories the haircut is in and long overdue. This is what happens when 10% of the S&P has 60% of the market cap...heavy lifters stumble and ETF outflows go bonkers.

Interesting.

I think when it comes to economic collapse though, if we have leaders that are working for the best interests of the country, what we will do is withdraw from the world into Fortress America and point all guns outboard at all borders.

The monetary realm is all paper and has the value of hope.

We have enough in country that is real and has tangible value.

My only fear would be butt hurt nuclear capable countries not so well positioned that decide to launch out of spite.

My thoughts depend upon leaders that "have the best interests" of the country in mind.

The way they handled 2008 Im not optimistic.

Dr Brennan, Dr Comey, Nurse Sztrock working on those ones.

By chance was it "Death via corona virus of 83 year old morbidly obese, type II diabetic with kidney disease, COPD and Lung cancer"

:ROFLMAO:

I asked the wife what the deal with the deceased was, their age range, etc. But it was a colleague of hers that saw the files, so she didn't know anything beyond that it was written "suspected coronavirus" for the cause of death on the death certificates.

She thought it was very strange that they would've even put on paper "suspected coronavirus". I guess only the CDC is allowed to confirm if it was in fact coronavirus. Not sure what the hospitals plans are, and if it's getting elevated to the CDC for more testing.

'Save your family please invest with Goldline and Patriot Food Supply b/f it's too late!' At least it wasn't Zero Hedge copy and paste I like yootoobes.

It’s another attempt to hurt USA by globalists. This will go the way of the other “pandemics”

how do I know this? Because the media is so excited to report it saying it will hurt the economy. Which it is, but this will blow over. Because I know the lack of veracity in the media. This will fail to unseat Trump.

I promise.

Here is how the perpetual Bears, Fed fighters and doomsday crowd have fared the last 10 years .....they get to come out and gloat during corrections. And the further they fall behind the madder they get.

I don't understand why people are so dramatic and terrified about small blips in the economy.

Are people really expecting an event like this to permanently cripple the economy?

I just don't follow the thought process.

This is grade A bullshit. If there were deaths here it would be everywhere in the news. And don’t tell me some conspiracy theory about it being hidden, because then they wouldn’t put coronavirus on the death certificate.

By the way, you can’t write “suspected” anything as a cause of death.

it was like 11k back in 2011-2012 when it clipped a bunch of people. Just keeps going up and up with no real tangible increase in wealth that the public sees out in the open. No new infrastructure or capability to show for all this wealth. Sure your 401ks show the increase. But it’s a paper tiger unless you cashed one in and actually bought something with it.

Now look where it’s at and it’s the end of the world if it loses several thousand I call bullshit. It should be able to drop all the way back to 2012 levels and not impact anything other than the paper tigers appearance.

I admit I don’t know shit. Just sayin.

Smoke and mirror con job excuse for the banks to eventually call in loans with. If it’s finally that time.

No tangible increase in wealth??? At it's most basic level trillions of dollars have been paid in dividends in that time period funding millions of Americans retirements with monthly income streams. One doesn't have to sell a position with capital gains to profit from it. I don't get what you mean by infrastructure.....is that your goal of personal investments? I suppose if you put money into municipal bonds it becomes part of your wheelhouse I guess? We had some great muni bonds in my town funding a new expressway which I like a lot.....

An it took the printing press's running overtime, printing funny money to do that. Some live in reality while others who think numbers on a balance sheet will still feed them, when all the funny money goes tits up.

Where is the wealth that bubble represents in tangible assets?

My kid the other day asked why they would choose to save the economy over closing the borders air tight to prevent people from dyin. Sometimes their uneducated minds allow common sense to shine through.

Sigh. Enjoy your life.....if your understanding of investing is this low we will just agree to disagree. Have a great day.

So having a retirement funding daily living expenses, cars, vacations is not tangible ok that's your definition. If you have to see infrastructure building come from investing continue to be disappointed.

No queston the Federal Reserve along with every other central bank on the planet is spending to hell. You can either profit from it until it pops or get run over by inflation with cash in a bank account......which won't be protected from bank confiscation under Dodd-Frank

Its a Ponzi scheme that actually pays out and does enhance the economy through investment in business capital for the everyman.

Historically it has been solid.

You have to have your hand on the throttle.

Im a little concerned that interest rates have made it "the only" non hard asset investment.

Im looking at 10 years or so before retirement.

Id like to be transitioning to more secure investments with less return but at least greater than the rate of inflation - CDs and Bonds used to be that investment - shit even savings accts used to work for you - but that seems to be gone.

When I wamy house 2006-2007 my ING account was getting about 5% - that was a good enough rate with a big load of building cash in the bank that monthly interest allowed for upgrading some of interior fixtures.

That's gone and I don't know what it will take to get it back.

QE and "too big too fail" only make it worse.

Having 22 trillion become 21 trillion would be a step in the right direction.

I truly hope I'm under ground b/f it pops.....100% there is no avoiding a debt instrument implosion of some kind it will happen. The prophets of doom have been saying this ever since we decoupled from gold......none have been right b/c no one knows what the actual trip wire will be. But just like a broken clock at some point it will hit 1 o'clock and they will be right. Life is a gamble, investing is a gamble, but people who abstain from planning on income for the future outside daily employment are taking the biggest risk of all IMO.

Just adding some info I heard recently as well. The first animal, a dog, was quarantined regarding getting the virus.

If this is true it adds a whole new twist on the expansion in the USA, if animals here contract it.
