    The information I'm passing on, has absolutely nothing to do with any "trump-phobia. You are only kidding yourself. It's coming man! Figure it out, and prepare as best you can.

    Proves that reading comprehension can be illusive. What was your brother in his first life? A secret Agent?

    I did not say that 75% would die. I said at the time, that 75% was the current death rate, and it was. As more cases are resolved, the number will fall and has fallen, to about 66% currently. The number will continue to fall, but will probably level off, somewhere in the teens. Do the math man! This thing is coming, prepare as best you can.

    He graduated from Loyola College in '69; went to work for Hartford Insurance out of college in order to learn the trade. Took over an Insurance agency from his wife's grandparents in Owings, MD, about 30 miles south of Annapolis. Wrote "The Hunt" as a hobby while there. Got it published by the Naval Institute press around '83. Hit paydirt after President Reagan read it and was quoted in the press saying "How the hell did this guy get all of this information?" Shortly thereafter signed a $100 million deal with Putnam. Then the video game thing took off, the movies, bought 23.08% of the Baltimore Orioles and more. Normal stuff.

    Before all that, he was just a nerd (his words) who read a lot, while his stupid little (4 years younger, good-looking) brother, played sports, started serving papers in the 4th grade and hustled for a buck ever since.

    I agree with Ronnie. Always figured these type of writers needed a good lot of inside info to write well on a subject, fiction or not.
    He wrote one hell of a lot of books after "The Hunt". 2 & 3 a year it seems.

    Last Monday The Gateway Pundit FIRST reported on the controversial Ethiopian politician and Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Tedros claimed in a press conference on March 3, 2020, that the fatality rate for the coronavirus was 3.4% and many multiples higher than the common flu mortality rate of 0.1%.
    This egregiously false premise has led to the greatest economic panic in world history.

    If any of you use propane for heat, I checked yesterday and it is $1.25 per gallon here. I'm topping everything off now instead of waiting till August for the normal summer fill season.

    Our governor closed stuff down yesterday and today we have
    100,000 unemployment claims and 457 people infected ????


    Government caused the last market crash and now they contributed to this one......imagine if they handled all our
    heathcare.

    Yesterday the shut the state down......except for business's that may stay open


    grocery stores, vets, eye care centers, bakeries, pharmacies, convenience stores,
    gas stations, pet supply stores, liquor stores, food service precessions stores, animal shelters,banks, insurance offices, hardware stores, trades, transportation offices, public housings, taxi
    service, hotels and motels if they close their pool, and many others that produce food or food services.

    Now today we have 128 mores cases...….sooner or later every one will be to the places
    that are open.....makes no sense.

    Deaths in Italy holding steady around 700 per day for 4 straight days after peaking on 3/20. Have to assume that the number of infected has continued to grow during the same 4 days, don't you?

    Meaning that Coronavirus hits the weak and elderly first and kills them, but while spreading to the younger and stronger, the death rate goes down gradually?

    Overall, the total death rate is nowhere close to the 1% (of those infected) worse case scenario?
