Try and find any physical anywhere right now including the major dealers and if you do the premiums are nuts with delivery 10-12 weeks out. If you don’t hold it you don’t own it and hopefully people go to prison over this or just neck themselves.

    Ammo in short supply as well. Many anti gunners have found out no you cannot just buy a gun on the internet and with background checks pretty much shut down sorry no gun for you. You get what you vote for.

    Oh those crazy preppers......
    There were lots of gun stores posting videos talking about the anti gun people rushing in to buy a gun now and wondering why they cannot walk out of the store with it. They were told about the wait time and the background checks to which the anti gun people would just offer more money and still be told no. They wee in shock because the politicians keep telling them its easier to buy a gun than to buy a cup o coffee or whatever the lie f the day is. Reality is a tough teacher.

    Its funny that all the "conservative" and I use the term loosely, ideas are all being used now and the crazy "liberal" ideas are considered bad now. People are homeschooling and I think it will become more popular now even after this is over. We are being pushed to live in highly dense population centers like LA, SF and NY all which are getting hammered by corona virus. We were told to use trains and buses instead of cars, this is also a disaster and not being used now. We were told to use reusable grocery bags, these are just magnets for staff and other bacteria they are back to the plastic bags. The reusable coffee cups are now considered bad and we are going back to the single use plastic cups (I have a beef with that, if I throw the plastic cup away and it goes into the ocean and kills a sea turtle it is no longer "single use")

    Looks like living away from big groups of people, homeschooling your kids, having guns, stockpiling food and water for an emergency along with having a generator basically being a prepper, driving your own car and not using reusable bags is the way to go. Oh and don't go to Starbucks.

      The idea of an internet based home education system is long overdue. Standardized Guidelines on structure/content, courses of study that deal in fact & evidence, etc are great things. Can do community based sports, art & crafts, music, lab groups, and basic real life skills to augment core fields of study.

        I cannot agree more. This is one of those things that may change after this is over in a substantial way. I think colleges will migrate heavily right away and government schools will follow soon after that.

          The entire school system up here has changed to it for the remainder of the year. I do not see a full “physical attendance” requirements for next fall.

            They'll only do it kicking & screaming. Go online and you can cut tuition by at least half. So much waste on these buildings trying to one-up each other. The cost is ridiculous. Not even worth it anymore.

              • I suggest we collect all the taxes huge corporations like Amazon, Exxon, JP Morgan, Walmart, Facebook, CVS, Pfizer, J&J, BofA, Trump Inc, Chevron, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway, United Health, Verizon, GE, AT&T, etc don’t pay.

                Lets see all the individuals with a networth of a $100+ million give 25% of it.
                - call it tithing or charity but should be done

                  Have you donated 25% of your net worth to help out?

                  As an FYI, tithing is 10% (tithe literally means 10% in Hebrew, not that I speak it!) that is donated to a church.

                    Let’s not confuse Corporation greed with everyday paycheck to paycheck people.
                    We outsource to the cheapest bidder so that corporations can improve their stock price For the wealthy who can afford to invest. (Gamble Money)

                    Pay your people and stop sending everything to China because they have areas they can exploit. In Germany CEOs of some of the best companies make fraction of US Counterparts. They build Mercedes and BMW factory’s in US.

                    Our corporate greed get us a 2-4 Trillion tab added to our future Payment plan.

                    And being 100% sales commission pay and bonus driven I will end up giving a lot more than 25%.

                      We are not in that networth range but we have let our 2 renters in our investment properties know that no rent is required through at least June.

                      Is having $75,000,000.00 (at a minimum) leftover not enough to keep them warm and safe at night?
                      - it is their low wage employees that are the ones in peril
                      - do you understand what corporate welfare/corporate socialism are?
                      —- if you do then you understand the financial inequality that this pandemic has exacerbated


                      Im aware what tithing is but thanks. I think the point clearly went over your head.

                          It's nice that you let your renters can skip rent payments but that isn't even close to the same thing as you donating 25% of your net worth. If you aren't willing to do it, it rings kind of hollow expecting others to do it. Lots of those greedy corporations are helping out people now.

                          People that object to corporations taking advantage of the tax laws should be blaming politicians who create the laws, not for-profit companies taking advantage of them to, you know, maximize profits.

                          The financial mess for everyone is going to take a long time to dig out of. Jack up the tax on the millionaires and corporations and when they don't hire any workers back because of it, the problem isn't solved, it's exacerbated.

                          If you understand what tithing is, than you'll understand why I pointed out your misuse of the phrase - but that is just me nitpicking. I understood your point, though clearly I don't agree with it.

                          I usually try and stay out of politics on any forum so I'll bow out of this one as well and go back to focusing on football as an escape.
