  1. I'm old, and all my driving life I have heard "...foreign oil...is bad...must not rely on foreign oil..." Now we produce all the oil we need domestically, but are jumping right in to relying on foreign batteries and foreign solar panels...trading one foreign energy dependency for another. Why was foreign oil produced by enemies bad, but foreign solar panels and batteries produced by enemies somehow OK? The ways of the world just continue to be completely irrational.
  2. That reply is just weird. Nobody says rights of liberty means you don't have to obey traffic laws. (driving is a privilege, not a right - drilled into my head many decades ago in High School Drivers Ed class) What I am saying is, the executive lock-downs are not within the law as it is written in my state's constitution. If you think executive lock-downs should be law, then first change your state's constitution to say that it can be so. So for example in my state (CO): What it says: The supreme executive power of the state shall be vested in the governor, who shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed. What it would need to be changed to: The supreme executive power of the state shall be vested in the governor, who's orders shall supersede all personal rights etc.....etc. - Good luck finding nice words for 'tyranny' and getting that passed.
  3. Right - because with Medicaid, rules are rules, but to the working guys - your essential unalienable rights are up to the government.
  4. Apparently Civics class in school ain't what it used to be. If everyone would just read their laws, it would be mostly clear who is right and who is not. My problem is why doesn't the news report the law as written and challenge when the swamp ignores the words? And I have bigger problem that people just listen to the news and don't look further at information that easily available to them. When our Governor declared a lock-down, how many people actually went and checked his work? Colorado Constitution (is written in very plain English - the way of west back in 1876) Article II Section 3: Inalienable rights. All persons have certain natural, essential and inalienable rights, among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; of acquiring, possessing and protecting property; and of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness. Governor declared lock-down citing: Article IV Section 2: The supreme executive power of the state shall be vested in the governor, who shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed. Analysis: Article II, Section 3 clearly says individuals are responsible for their own safety and their own property. Article IV Section 2, that the governor cited for his order, clearly states that an executive order must uphold the law. So who broke the law? The working guy who defied the order and opened his business under Article II Section 3? (and was shut down indefinitely to be made an example of) Or, the Governor who failed to uphold the law with his executive power? The answer is very clear.
  5. Exactly - the swamp can declare martial law on the working guy, stripping of constitutional rights, but they can't make a common sense crisis variance to a swamp run medicaid policy - even when military under direction of POTUS provided thousands of hospital beds that went unused. it is completely irrational! - and we're debating news outlets -that's the problem right vs left instead of common sense vs swamp.
  6. US Army Corps of Engineers converts Javits Conference Center to massive hospital in <5 days (under direction of CIC) US Navy sends world's largest hospital ship to dock in NY Harbor ready to help -deploying in record time (under direction if CIC) New York left wing political leaders screw up using same old swamp corrupt politics - making no use of the resources provided that could have helped, because swamp run medicare is telling them what to do, and the rules are rules! Just blame the CIC. Meanwhile, the working folks lives are turned upside down and business is closed and unalienable rights are suspended because apparently to guys like me - rules (like the constitution) are not rules.
  7. Tough love - (freedom of speech) Novel virus's will not be going away anytime soon. China is behaving badly -running their biological weapon/research labs with the protocols of 10 year olds playing with firecrackers. Filthy 'wet markets' will remain prominent in Asian cultures - global shipping and travel will bring disease here faster than a speeding bullet. Many Asian countries are simply not trustworthy by historical and cultural custom - sorry not PC, but true. We better get healthier as a nation. High percentage of everyday people are on common prescription drugs that suppress immune, liver, pancreatic, and other normal body functions making for higher risk. Insanely high obesity rates. Average Americans are not willing to find alternatives to poor diet and sedentary lifestyles when a daily pill can give them false security. Upper respiratory disease attacks exactly the area of the body that is affected by poor lifestyle choices. These virus's cannot be cured nor will they go away (common cold is a 'coronavirus'). This is the tip of the iceberg. It is completely plausible this was 'test run' by the CCP - lets study our enemies reaction (since when in the past 75 yeas has a vile communist government worried about killing innocent people to make a point?). Unless we want to cower in fear the rest of our lives every time big bad CCP has a Hong Kong revolution to quell, wants to gain an economic advantage, or to intimidate a strong opposing leader who stands up to their despicable communist ideology, then we better be on high alert and as a society we better get a lot tougher.
  8. Yes, CNN and WHO was reporting that the virus can live on surfaces a long time! For example, it can live until Nov 3rd on voting machine surfaces in red states...
  9. 3 tenths of 1 percent! And I got shamed for not wearing my "let's be like China' face mask while buying a 6pack of good local beer - won't go back to that store again! I was grabbing a few beers after my workout, I wasn't planning on robbing a train or doing snowboard tricks in the half pipe! On the mask note, I had a large package of genuine US made 3M N-95's cause when sand, and paint etc. I like to have good stuff. During the initial panic I offered them to my neighbor, who's young son just went through a very serious medical issue and had a highly compromised immune system. They thanked me dearly but indicated they were well stocked. I then took them over to the local fire/paramedic station, the guys were outside shooting hoops. I Showed them the package and offered, they said YES! we are in short supply, and took them. So, the only mask that really matters, I did what I felt was the best thing I can do. Now the 'Covid Karen's' are shaming for not wearing a dirty train robber bandana when I go to the store! Geezz - what have we come to!

  11. Amen brother! But we have some smart guys on our side. "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"- Benjamin Franklin "Emergencies have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded" - Friedrich Hayek None of this is new to the world, they've been trying to power grab using fear since the days of Cesar. You may think old Kevmo is not the sharpest tool in the shed-fair enough But you have some serious cojones if you're up for an intellectual smack-down with Ben and Friedrich.
  12. They need to introduce both at once, because of how a majority of people see headlines - If they introduce the Bronco Sport only, the internet will light up as "...this is what Ford calls a real Bronco..." "this is what Ford says will compete against Wrangler..." "...we waited for this..." We'll be spending the next 3 weeks trying to convince the trolls that there is a real Bronco coming, you know the drill. Most average Joes probably don't know they're doing two models...and when they hear 'Bronco' and see the Bronco Sport they are going to be really upset. Please Ford, have the good sense to show both at the same time and spare us the trouble of having the Toyota and Jeep fanboys trashing the Baby Bronco as an off-roading joke.
  13. Yep, and we know what side is prolonging the pain.... The entire problem in 12 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pb-YuhFWCr4
  14. If the so-called 'vaccine' comes from China, or is manufactured in China, then count me out. A 'cardinal rule' of commons sense: "If you problem and solution come from the same source, there is a 100% chance you're being screwed" My Dr told me, the common cold is a coronavirus. There are many known coronavirus'. There are no cures or vaccines for any known coronavirus. I believe Fuzzy is right - The good news is, we don't need a vaccine. Dr Scott Atlas (you can look him up, Stanford Hoover Senior Fellow, in other words, a medical rock star) explains the way immunity happens, and he also strongly suggests that the 3-4 month old models being used to dictate public policy are very wrong and outdated. "The recent Stanford University antibody study now estimates that the fatality rate if infected is likely 0.1 to 0.2 percent, a risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that motivated isolation policies." https://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/494034-the-data-are-in-stop-the-panic-and-end-the-total-isolation
