    I would love to come across one of those Lowman whiskey bottles someday!
  2. The Coronavirus Discussion "Superthread"

    Funny that this should pop up on my Facebook feed. It’s from one of my favorite authors: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2857842180919702&id=358789724158306

    Yeah, I think both parties did. I have to be honest with ya guys, I’m just debating this for the sake of doing so. The way I see it, they’re gonna do what they’re gonna do. I have more important, more immediate shit to worry about right here, right now. And if some new repugnant law is passed while we’re not looking, I have no problem completely ignoring it. I remember well learning from iElmira the difference between malum in se and malum Prohibitum, and how to handle each

    You raise a good point about someone reaching into the car. Now with that in mind I’d have to say probably not. At least if they’re not wearing a mask and new gloves. Yeah this whole situation sucks, but it’s hardly the first time Americans have been inconvenienced because of a pandemic. I share KReeds concerns about how the stimulus was passed through so quickly once the parasites tacked on BILLIONS for their cronies. I’m not saying that the media isn’t guilty of embellishing their coverage. Geezus, why they continue to erode their credibility by doing so is beyond me. But, I fail to see this as a move to take away my rights. I see it as a measure to keep what resources we have from being overwhelmed to the detriment of all. Maybe it’s because I’ve had to make such decisions ( albeit on a much more micro scale ) that I can understand some of the measures taken. Sometimes decisions get made that perhaps aren’t the best, but it’s what your thought of with what little time you had to make them. As for the video, the officer didn’t detain him, presumably because they have no just cause. Answering was more a courtesy than anything. I have no issue with the way either side handled it. They can ask where you’re going, doesn’t mean you have to answer. ”Where ya going?” ”________” “Okay then.”

    Well of course there hasn't. But again, what's the hypothetical endgame? The only instance I know of this happening was in Rhode Island, specifically targeting New York license plates. And they put the kibosh to it. To answer your question directly, it'd depend on the degree of the "health check". Where am I going? What are they asking to do? If I'm coming from a known "hot spot" and trying to cross state lines, is someone running a thermometer across my forehead unreasonable? I don't think so. And even if I did, what's the alternative? Run from the law and they do it anyway while I'm in jail? The roadside isn't the place to try and argue your Constitutional rights. Does the video you posted make me think, "Hmm... weird."?? Sure it does. Does it convince me that the Illuminati/ New World Order/ Skull and Bones society is launching a new worldwide operation? Eh, I'm gonna need a little more than cell phone footage of questionable origin and editing.

    When presented with conspiracy theories, I have to ask a few questions or look at it from a different angle: 1- Whats the motive? What's the reward when weighed against the risk? 2- Is it possible the theorists are ALSO cherrypicking their footage or location they shoot from? ( For example, showing different entrances than what's shown on MSM ) 3- Is it possible to get so many people to play along with such a "hoax" and if so, how do you keep them, and their families, all quiet? ( You don't. )

    Apparently in an effort to show solidarity with emergency and other health care workers, NYC changed the light at the top of the Empire State Building to look like an emergency light but it had a more anxiety inducing effect. Check out the article here ( I can't get the video to embed ).
  8. Now this is taking things too far. Choices have consequences people, and we can’t try and protect someone from decades of bad decision making.
  9. I think there's a really good chance you're correct.

    Yeah right? As if I wasn’t already ballooning up.

    I read John Prine is real sick with it too. In other news, President Trump extended the social distancing guidelines to April 30th. I bet he wasn’t too happy about it, but I’m glad he listened to the doctors.

    That’s a nice job!

    Sigh....I was hoping this was a hoax: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-country/joe-diffie-country-singer-dead-obituary-974556/?fbclid=IwAR3xXfHtq0Vxt8yjoU2WqPLaHhopXAZfe5yrs8E6wbNK3PCqmBfP1PjidpY
