So no Kung Flu release from prison for Michael Cohen--but Michael Avenatti gets out? It helps to have a Democrat judge for a friend.
Discard the nutter theory that some evil Chinese genius created a new virus for use as a bioweapon! Okay this is not a man made virus. But some Chinese researcher climbed in a bat cave in a remote part of China and waded though bat feces, bat urine and bat blood to get this sample virus---and bring it back to Wuhan. That was a deliberate and intentional act---bringing something out of the bat cave as it were. Once in the Wuhan laboratory either through negligence, cupidity,or through intentional release it got out. You go to Skull Island, you capture King Kong Virus and bring him or it into civilization, it's on you to keep King Kong in his cage. And China didn't. And it started with an intentional act on their part.
In a just world, Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Rosentien, Strozk, Paige, whatever et al would have their corpses hung by their heels on the Washington Mall.

The jug eared bug eyed pencil necked Congressional geek is what you scrape off your shoe after dog walkers haven't picked up after Fido's Schiff. And he aspires to be--and most probably will be--California's next Senator. He makes Tailgunner Joe McCarthy look like an amateur when it comes to abusing power.

This is probably heresy. I have been laughing at the ChiComms saying that the corona virus actually came from the United States and was planted in China by the US Army. Har de har har, and pull the other leg Chairman Xi! The most likely story is that some Chinese bat researcher climbed into a cave in Western China and after being covered with bat blood, feces and urine, snagged a sample of what is now identified as "Covid19" and took it back to the lab in Wuhan. From there the virus escaped through negligence or was released intentionally. International travel spread it around the world. I buy that story. But--autopsies here in California seem to indicate that deaths occurred in the US much earlier than expected, and antibody checks show that a large percentage of the California population has had a case of the Wuhan Flu at sometime in the past. Since we don't know how long the antibodies will remain in a person, we can't really say when the person had the disease. The large percentage of people who have antibodies for the Wuhan Flu is good news in a way since it indicates that the lethality of the Wuhan Virus is much less than predicted. It can certainly kill--mainly the elderly with preexisting medical problems (but then the ordinary types of flu also do that). But getting a case of it is not an automatic death sentence as the hair on fire mainstream press would suggest. But--if the Wuhan Flu virus was widely spread in the USA last year (as some of the antibody tests might indicate) is it possible that the disease first crossed from bats to humans in the USA and then (again through international travel) was spread to China? As I say--heresy--but not impossible.

Since I'm stuck with the Los Angeles Times for my morning local paper (I read the morning local paper wherever I am at the moment) I'm subject to 80 per cent of the paper being full of anti Trump screeds--the other 20 percent is paid obituaries which is the only kind of advertising that the Times can get these days. But it's clear that the LA Times devotion to "science" and "experts" means that the only scientists and experts that it will acknowledge are those who agree with its anti-Trump bias. Everything and everybody else is a "science denier" The editors of the Times want to unleash their inner Torquemada's and burn all such deniers at the stake. So if some guy gets canned or demoted at the National Institute of Health (who knew that their were politics in bureaucracies?) naturally CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times are going to jump on the wagon behind the guy. I have no idea whether Dr. Bright is right, wrong, or simply not that smart. Nor do I care. But he'll have his moment in the sunshine until the MFM moves on.

Miss Marple sorry to hear about Maggie. I had a good vet for a number of years--trained at Oklahoma. His view was that as long as a dog was enjoying its food and was comfortable, you'd keep them going. He was not one for heroic surgery etc. Keeping a really sick dog going is an exercise in narcissistic cruelty on the part of the dog's owner. I've seen it hapoen and I don't like to see it. My dogs have usually lived to 12 or 13 years, and I've made that last sad trip to the vet five times now in my married life. My wife wishes that our dogs might just quietly pass away one night---but that hasn't happened. Usually there's been some dramatic or unusual change in their behavior--I think the dog is telling me that it's time to go. My wife and I go together and stay with the dog until it's over. It is a hard thing to do--but you owe it to the dog. A good one has given a lot of pleasure to its human friends over the course of its life.

Marlene sorry to hear that your nine year old dog has arthritis. I had a Karelian Bear Dog that was one of the world's great canine athletes. And then she got old and finally couldn't move, and it broke my heart. It was her way of telling me that it was time to take that last sad trip to the vet. The current dog is a mixed breed bundle of joy weighing about 30 pounds. She's highly reactive to all sorts of other (non human) critters. At the suggestion of our trainer, we finally had to put her on canine Prozac. But she's good company and I hope she lasts another six or seven years.

Well at the rate the NBA is going, I'd say that in mid May they'll simply write the season off. Of course Ezekiel Emanuel (Rahm's idiot brother and the architect of Obamacare) suggest that the US should go into total lockdown for another 18 months. That's the ticket. You may as well nuke the US economy--it wouldn't hurt it any worse than that.

Miss Marple you've got a stronger stomach than me when it comes to watching Trump's press conferences. I know that he can and does swat down reporters like flies (which after all are adult maggots). He's on his game and can return serve as it were with the best of them. But the whole spectacle is too much like bear baiting, and I can only take it in short bits.

Haven't tuned into the news. Is Putrid Pelosi still dragging her feet on getting this bill through?
The FDA has long had a severe case of regulatory constipation--sometimes trending into cranial rectal insertion. Back in the late mid 70's I frequently ran into a law school classmate of mine who was making numerous trips to Washington D.C. to duke it out with the FDA. He represented an association of corneal insert manufacturers. They were trying to get approval of these clear plastic lenses for insert in the eyes of severe cataract sufferers. Remove the cataract, insert the lens and grandmas could see clearly again. (In fact one of the patients who needed the device was the aged mother of then Senator Roman Hruska). The FDA was dithering over whether that intraocular lens insert (the correct name of the item) was a "drug" or a "device". There are different regulatory regimes for the two categories. As I understand it, if something is a "drug", the FDA first has to determine what a satisfactory dosage is. Well shucks while I think a clear plastic lens is a "device" rather than a "drug", the dosage level is clear. One lens, one eye. Only a Washington bureaucrat could get tangled up in his or her underwear over that question. It took three years and some pointed help from Senator Hruska to get the issues resolved.

Not surprisingly this morning's Los Angeles Times reports that federal employees have asked that all government offices be closed. When the going gets tough federal employees go home. I suspect we'll survive the absence of federal employees.

You wanna talk about getting rear ended in the market Bubba has checked in big time in the last couple of days.
Market got rear ended on Monday; was up yesterday; and now is getting rear ended like excavating the Holland Tunnel today. I'll drink my cup of coffee and watch the carnage. But if you are in a precarious financial situation, this is definitely no fun.

1/2Aboy---I've been on thyroid replacement medicine for a bit more than ten years now. A pituitary adenoma put paid to my pituitary gland--which in turn shut down my thyroid. Me and my endocrinologist are now BFF--see him once a year and he adjusts the dosages of the various hormonal replacements. But life can and will go along nicely without a thyroid gland. Best wishes to you and your wife.

Now Slow Joe claims that he was a pretty good high school athlete (as was for that matter The Donald). So somebody could teach Joe the Wuhan Shuffle and he'd get it quick. The question is when the opportunity to perform the Wuhan Shuffle came up on stage an hour later, could Joe remember it? I don't think so.

It's been a wild week in the markets. But I'm in it for the long run so just try to shut my eyes to all the movement. I'm staying in with my portfolio--figure that in the long run I'll be okay, and I've got enough to ride it out.

Ah Ignatz You Da Man as all those white privileged guys out on the golf links say. Chris Matthews will not be missed by me; I actually tuned him in maybe twice a year as an antidote to Rachel Maddow. Just for curiosity's sake (like a fellow who watches train wrecks) I'll turn to Ms Maddow twice a year; after 15 seconds I have to cut to Tingles. Now if Larry O'Donnell would just walk off his show and resign, my day would be just a little bit brighter.
Well Stelter "jumped in" or is that maybe "jumped on" Katie Hill's invitation to party. But somehow I think that Tater is the one who wouldn't be getting anything in a throuple. Just sayin. What a loathesome toad--Stelter.
Forget it Jake---it's King County and Olympia. Declaring a statewide emergency for one Covid19 death (while ignoring what's probably a couple of dozen or more deaths from "plain old flu") is what Washington Progtards do. East of the Cascades Washingtonians aren't so goofy.
You don't have to be a bleeding heart Democrat New York Jew to agree with Mrs. Kid's conclusion. Heck I'm lapsed Methodist who's lived a long life west of the Continental Divide and I think Mrs. Kid was spot on. The only one that I can remember from the Klown Kar who might get my vote was Tulsi Gabbard. Otherwise this bunch of Dems has nothing to offer. But since I'll be voting for Trump (again) I look at the Dem Debate(s) and can truthfully say, "Not my circus, not my monkeys".

Oh come on Tom; you not only want Bernie to beat Liawatha like a rented mule (or worse) in the Massachusetts primary--you'd like to see her staked out on an anthill. I mean you may as well go for a real Indian punishment (Comanche Style) for a fake Indian.

Miss Marple I'm an old long married man; but I do enjoy looking at Melania Trump and what she's wearing. The pant suit with the early 20th Century Indian textile sash was stunning. The yellow dress was nice. Ivanka Trump was good in a white dress with red flowers. Both ladies are easy on the eyes and dress in tasteful fashion. Some cynics might call them clothes horses. So? Beautiful clothes on beautiful women. Compare and contrast with Michelle Obama departing Air Force One wearing wrinkled Bermuda shorts and a tee shirt made by Omar the Tent Maker which looked as if it had been slept in. Had to bleach my eyeballs after seeing Queen Moochelle dressed that way.
