Communication and relationship need to take center stage during this crisis.

Don't text your Parents, kids and friends,,,call them. The voice of a loved one is reassuring and encouraging. Since we can't be with all the ones we are concerned about, lets make sure and visit by phone as much as possible.

Too true!

https://nypost.com/2020/03/17/dont-pass-that-dutch-how-potheads-are-rethinking-marijuana-etiquette-amid-coronavirus/

Since time immemorial, pot smoking has been a communal activity. Sitting on the grass, Bogarting a joint, being an herb hog — those behaviors were all frowned upon.

But today, when picking up germs from the tip of a joint or vape pen can leave you   infected with the coronavirus , health-conscious potheads find themselves rethinking weed etiquette.

On a recent night downtown, Melissa Vitale, an avid and highly functional stoner, tokes away at one of the dozen joints she carries inside a silver cigarette case.

“We’re all making adjustments,” the 27-year-old publicist from Brooklyn tells The Post.

For instance, she advises putting the more vulnerable first: “People with compromised immune systems or without insurance will take the initial hit [of weed] before sharing with others,” she says.

In fact, Vitale, who works with the   cannabis-positive clubhouse NSFW , has thought it through beyond that. “These days,” she says, “I’ll light a joint, take four to 10 hits and pass it. Then I light my own joint, which I hang onto. That way I am not getting anyone’s germs.”

It’s almost like she’s paying a kind of pothead health tax: For every five joints she lights, she gives away one-and-a-half in order to avoid the contagion. As for puffing joints that have been lit by others and passed to her, Vitale carries around a gold joint-tip. “It’s like a small cigarette holder,” she says. “I can insert the joint into it and have a clean tip.”

Trump will be remembered as the president that's so full of shit, the country ran out of toilet paper.

2.5 million new jobless claims this last week and the DJIA is now lower than it was when trump took office. The deficit over a trillion a year, debt has increased by 4 trillion since trump took office.

Sure, great economy. /s

Don't worry Frost....  it increased by 10 trillion during Obama's time in office.  At least Trump had great success with it as opposed to stagnation nation during Obama.

See how that shit works Frost?

And now the likely Democrat Presidential Candidate, thinks keeping the Communist Chinese out of this country with the virus that established itself in their country while their government tried to hide it from the world was in some way xenophobic.   If Biden was President, he would likely invite anyone with the virus here so we could take care of them.......

Well think of it this way right now if you invested $100,000 you could set yourself up for $40,000 a year in income if the economy survives.

That’s a hell of a lot better than Social Security but you would have to root for Trump to succeed instead of OBiden. , So make your choice, economic survival with Trump or a hellish existence amid a left wing dystopian state.

...who can accept the fact we are behind the curve and going forward we will do whatever it takes to combat the threat at hand. No platitudes, no faux science, nothing but the truth and the ramifications that that truth demands. In other words, be a leader the times demand...and projecting Biden as a candidate nor deflecting back to Obama has absolutely no relevance on March 21, 2020.

Political disagreements aside...missed having you around if only for the pithy, well written comments. Be safe, Fish...

Trump is not fit for office. The sad part is you know that but still try and ruin his opponents.  Biden will be a far better president that Trump. 

Trump KNEW that coronavirus was going to come to the US and kill many people. But he downplayed it for weeks, because he was afraid the truth would hurt his political chances. He more belongs in prison than he belongs in the white house.

Trump "knew".

Gee, after the last 3 plus years of telling us all that Trump don't know shit, suddenly you change your tune?

I suppose instead of instituting travel bans, Trump could have gone on tv and got everyone all panicked.

Good plan.

Refute it then.  Jobs skyrocketed.  Unemployment tanked.  Everything was going gangbusters until Communist China unleashed a virus on the world.  Was Wuhan province a local test site to determine effectiveness?

So the Spanish flu should be called the Kansas flu?  First case was there.  Otherwise, why is Trump MAKING UP a name?  Its called Covid-19 or Coronavirus.  Nobody but Trump and his toads are calling it Chinese.  Because its all over the world now.

https://www.kansas.com/news/local/article200880539.html

Ground Zero in one of the world’s deadliest influenza pandemics started quietly, inconspicuously.

It was winter, 100 years ago. And it was here, in Kansas.

The virus began on the windswept Kansas prairie, where dirt-poor farm families struggled to do daily chores — slopping pigs, feeding cattle, horses, and chickens, living in primitive, cramped, uninsulated quarters.

Ergo, he shut down travel between Communist China and the United States and was denigrated for it by the ass wipe talking heads and some politicians on the left.

But he downplayed it for weeks, because he was afraid the truth would hurt his political chances.

He slow walked it to avoid having the fear and panic we now endure over a virus that was not of his making, and very possibly will likely kill less in this country than the annual flu succeeds at killing.

He more belongs in prison than he belongs in the white house. 

If we had another in the White House, we would likely be in a state of martial law by now as Democrats only know complete government control.

Simply because it was hoarded by the parasites dependent on the government for their survival, and piss on the workers of society.

I just read that Costco is refusing returns on things like hand sanitizer and TP.       Hope those hoarding dumbasses like their garages full of the same.  

I knew I liked Costco for more than one reason.

Nonsense, the TP makers are making the same annual amount they always do, it is the hoarders are the problem. The demand did not change because of Covid 19.

You hatred of Trump shows through again.

Sad, very sad.

Good on celebs who are trying to help and not hurt.
