12:01AM No bars or restaurants, no markets no movies. No! NO! NO!

This follows no Moto Cross or Moto GP races all summer.

Craziness at the markets all weekend. The things people will by in a panic. Every can of soup,fruit all the pats and sauce gone.

People acting like ass hats. Fights, yelling ugliness spilling out into the parking lots. One big guy raging to himself and breaking the windows out of every car in the handicap parking lanes.

I was luck to get home with 3L of Vodka and some candy bars.

...............Confused.............

Holy crap, MJ, that's awful! I'm thankful it isn't that insane here at the moment. Best of luck to you, I hope it all calms down there soon.

Sounds like off sales beer vendors (kinda like a drive thru) will stay open but the bars may close.

I'm not hard core but my rule is be ready for a Horrible week, bad month or a difficult year.


Did have one strange thing happen  A few days ago I was leaving the store with a 12 pack of toilet paper and this attractive woman offered to trade Sex for toiler paper. I asked her how much toilet paper is she willing to tradeLOL
Have a Nice Day

No..they shouldn't be (read my post about my pard Tony in London).
If'n y'all keep yer cool - keep yer distance & wash yer hands..we should all be ok.
The hidden flaw is our 'Merican friends. Theres the threat. Mr.Trump disbanded the teams that tried to warn him of this, & he didn't take it seriously enough.(Niether did Italy or England). Now we have a situation wherby our border needs to stay open, but 335 million people are going to be in a bad way...right next door.
This could spell disaster. But, keep calm and drink on!!

"... I'm thankful it isn't that insane here at the moment. ..."

oh yes it is - all the TP in town is gone , im not complaining but other things are also gone , WTF ? 

are people nuts or are they so much into wrecking the economy that they are buying all this ? yes all but marshal law here too but please why ? im going with people are stupid , i had a gun transfer in motion this last week - finally gone through today , it was not one i needed for the apocalypse = its an older cowboy gun i happened upon , i am happy but guess there are a lot of folks without guns that are buying them , ATF wait for the NICS was an hour with a continued revue of another hour , i always get further review with common name and born out of state but generally a few minute call ,  they are busy , 

last time they were this busy was when BO got elected , ive not thought to check on ammo , im going to load my own for this , and i already have all the components , wonder what that market is doing ? anyone ordered in the last week or so ? 

i wonder how long this will go on , and will we turn on the media when its over ?

Just so y'all know..if you do the math based on previous experience through Europe(where there is socialized medical care)..this is likely to drag on til july or maybe even august.
Get prepped for a long haul, folks.

I am ready for a long slog on this. Last week I ordered 5 of the Enfield .410 muskets from Century Arms and they are in rough shape so that will give me something to do at least. Well, so long as they get delivered like they are supposed to on Friday.

Here is it all life as usual. 
Don't lick door-nobs and wash your hands.
Really, I can Not see what folks are panicking about.
I mean, Flu knocks over a lot each year and no-one says anything.
 
Being paranoid never seems a good idea to me.
 
The world I think has gone mad.
 
Here, Restaurants and most shops still open, everyone very pleasant and happily going about daily life.
I think facebook and the media are experimenting in people manipulation....seems the "sheeple" are all listening as well!
 
Quit blaming Trump.
He wanted to close the borders and got called a Nazi then when he says "don't panic" he's called delusional.
 
I'd trade him for "rainbow Boy" any day!
 
Richard.

I couldn't agree more.
Prevention, as for any flu-like microbial critter. & Medicate as needed if you still get it.
I'm on another forum where they're convinced its The TETOWAKI as they know it! "There's never been anything like this" they scream! Sorry influenza season happens every year, just learn to deal with it intelligently.

All is I can say is "TETOWAKI" my mules bum.

Get a grip folks, this is not rocket science.

Grow a garden and shut up,sit down, and keep calm.
