The Flaming '20's......................from Rico

We are living in what can rightly be called "The Flaming 20's"...
 
While The Lancet is saying a WuFlu death rate of 0.66, here we are saying maybe 100-240,000 deaths out of a population of 330 million.
- Do your own math here.
 
Meanwhile, back at the Central Banks, balance sheets are exploding...and people are more worried about "shit, no more toilet paper!" to notice yet.
- Increasing DEBT is no problem so long as your assets and cash flows are increasing.
- Government cash flows are based upon GDP's.*
- Guess what GDP's are doing with the World on 'staycation?'
 
*There are always TAXES. Guess what will be happening with them?



WuFlu - The Lancet...................from Rico

The British medical journal The Lancet now says the death rate for WuFlu may actually be 0.66%...
 
I am not a Dr, and do not pretend to be, but neither are all the talking heads cleverly disguised as 'journalists'...


Democrats 'n 'Coincidences' 101..................from Rico

There are NO 'coincidences' when you are dealing with Democrats. NONE.
 
You can always count on them to screw you. ALWAYS.

WuFlu = No Auto Sales...................from Rico

Baby you can drive my car the Beatles once sang.
- But when nobody buys your car?



3 of 4 Americans....................from Rico

Three of every four Americans is under a 'stay at home' order as March ends. [attached]
 
A look at the cash burn rates indicates the financial fuel tanks are emptying, and when they do the economic glide path will resemble that of a rock...

Economic Extinction Event?.....................from Rico

Is this Beer virus induced economic shut down an economic extinction event?
 
On a MACRO level I do not think so. It's done severe damage already, and will do more, but economic activity will survive...if barely, and in worse shape than anyone living has ever seen.
 
On a MICRO level? For those who were already on thin economic ice, it very well be a financial coup de grace and many will never recover.
 
And a final caveat: When following the masses, remember that the "m" is usually silent...



WuFlu - Unknown consequences.....................from Rico

Things have already changed. Forever.
 
The global economy has essentially stopped, as has America's, which suggests several things to me:
- Our frames of reference for business, money, and social norms have gone out the window.
- Our 'old' way of life has already changed and is not likely to return to 'as usual.'
- We do not yet know the full consequences of what has happened, but it's gonna leave a mark.

More Government?......................from Rico

Liberals and the propaganda-driven media are not yet backing off their manufactured hysteria - and de facto martial law - because...
- Because we 'need' more Government.
 
Here is a PSA for all y'awl: go fuck yourselves!



Sound Scary?................from Rico

Dr Fauci has said there 'could' be up to 200,000 deaths caused by WuFlu.
- Sounds scary, huh?
 
Let's see: Out of 330 million Americans, that's roughly .0060606 ...
 
Eating under-cooked bat actually sounds scarier to me, but while I may not have TP to help fight a URI (upper respiratory infection) I have plant of anti-Covid spray, so as Carl Spackler said in "Caddy Shack" I have that going for me.

Precious Metals now are Unobtanium..................from Rico

The demand for physical Gold and Silver has out-stripped supply.
- The 'disconnect between paper Gold and physical Gold is glaring...same for paper Silver vs. physical Silver.
 
You can have as much paper Precious Metals as you want, with Gold 'paper spot' at $1,628 and Silver 'paper' spot at $14.43.
- BUT the supply of physical is scarce to nil, and physical Gold is now commanding up to $1,908 and physical Silver $29.73...do your own math.



Democrat Blue Virus...................from Rico


The current American 'state of siege' [read: Democrat-induced economic coma] aka one-size-fits-all 'solution' needs to end soon.
- Never shy about "not letting a good crisis go to waste" to further their agenda, we have seen dick-tatorial orders [read: neo-martial law] where they hold local sway. Add-in $2 trillion in welfare, and we have a Socialist gulag.
 
Ask: Whatever happened to Constitutional rights?
- I agree with Ron Paul that "...the greatest danger is the government's overreaction." [and let me add: over-reach].
 
This is about as far from the vision of the Founding Fathers as I've seen it get...and it is eerily close to the wet-dream of Socialists [read: Democrats].
- Socialism is more dangerous than coronavirus.
- Democrats are all Socialists now. [read: Blue Virus]
 
Pro-tip: Forget all about MRE's (meals, ready to eat), what the Donk's have are PRY (plans ready for you).
