Thomas Massie's (R-KY) motion for roll-call vote overturned. Stimulus bill passes the House. On its way to President Trump.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/27/uk/uk-boris-johnson-coronavirus-gbr-intl/index.html UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tests positive. Hindsight is 2020, but Trump should have had Pense in quarantine from day one. Everyone understands how important it is for him to be healthy. The unthinkable seems muc...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

It seems some recent research of the virus's RNA indicates that it was a natural mutation, not engineered. The researchers went into it with the hypothesis that it could be artificial, so it looks like a reasonable study. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/coronavirus-covid-19-not-human-made-lab-ge...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://ew.com/celebrity/kathy-griffin-coronavirus-slams-trump/ Kathy Griffin in hospital blames Trump. Painful symptoms. Awe, sad to learn. Couldn't happen to a more deserving idiot. Instead of the usual clipboard attached to the foot of the bed for patient notes, maybe the hospital should stick a...

US unemployment claims reach record 3.28M this week amid coronavirus crisis By comparison, the highest number before this was 695,000 claims in one week in 1982. And I'm afraid this is just the start. Small and midsize companies were trying to hold on last week, and they'll keep trying to hold on. ...

Re: Another New One from Ruger

Very nice MSRP price point considering the features. Might come in a little over $500 real retail. Like the pre-drilled and tapped slide for RDS mounting. Doesn't say anything about the trigger weight. I wonder if it's the same as the regular Ruger American. Like the sights. Ambi mag and slide rele...

Re: Need help with “Essential Businesses”

I think hair cuts are essential. I am starting to look like Wolfman Jack! We're down to Flowbee's: :anamatedbanana The dear wife has been urging me to keep my hair shorter for summer. She doesn't like it long anyway. Says it makes me look like I'm trying to pretend to be younger. Being Day 1 of Har...

President Trump being interviewed now on Fox News. About Cuomo's press conference, he noted that the New York governor was offered in 2015 a total of 16,000 deeply discounted ventilators via a federal purchase program to better support New York's hospital preparedness. Cuomo declined the offer and p...

As expected, our Harris County just-turned 29-year-old, no advanced degree (and whose only prior work experience was first in Thailand for a non-profit advocating for freedom of the press, and then as an interpreter--she was born in Columbia--somewhere at the Texas Medical Center), elected democrat ...

Re: Coronapocalypse Projects & Pastimes

I'm building a tube-amplifier (guitar) from a kit - I've never done anything like this in my life. I had to make a jig out of scrap wood just to hold it as the chassis constantly needs to be flipped-over.... They call these "hand-wired" amps because there's no printed-circuit board in sight - just ...

I had to look at the receipt to find the date, but I've had a Black Rain Ordnance Fallout 15 billet lower in my safe since October 2016. Yeah, I admit I bought a bunch of stuff when it for all the world looked like we'd see Hillary elected. Out of sight out of mind, but sorting through things in the...

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

This just in from John Farnam to his email list. https://defense-training.com/about . Friends in NJ tell me that the NJSP is still processing “permits-to-purchase,” but state employees in Trenton (NJ State Capitol) who process applications are all at home! As in NY, that “state function” is closed, ...
