I've commented to a few others about my perceptions, exactly the same as in the article above.This is a major reason I suspect that your "Wuhan" virus is my "Ft Detrick" virus -- that the US bioweapons people created it and released it overseas to make it look like it came from there, to cover the criminal failure and looting of our one-percenters, who have wrecked our economy with their policies of peasant labor in across the Rio Grande, skilled labor deported overseas, create a financialization economy to replace our once-unrivaled manufacturing economy, no taxes or penalties for hi-tech, banks, wall street etc.

I had to call the shop to inquire.
That's normal and has been the case my entire adult life.

Has anyone been to a sit down restaurant where you order from a tablet mounted to the table, and an R2D2 robot brings the food, or something similar?

We used to carry sonobuoys with Lithium Batteries on P-3s to hunt subs.
Ammo prices going right up. I stocked on another 1000 rounds and it is up 20-30% relative to a week ago.
Guess the Russians found a use for the ammo they were exporting to the States before Joe's import restriction.
You could sell again for a nice profit.
I was going to head to my local range today but they are advertising $1.31/115g 9mm.Guess I'll stay home and work on taxes instead.I'm not digging into my stash.
the products come from France, so their all sitting in shipping containers off the coast.
Why would French goods be waiting off the coast of California?
Heard today at Convenience Store --- Indian owner was complaining his son is now paying $20k for a container from India and can't make a profit selling gimgaws to Etsy/Flea Market sellers. Two years ago it was $4000 for a container. Now it's $20k but not door to door, it's Port to Port only.
