Have you ever had an experience alone that you wished you could share with someone? For example, that happened to me on the coldest day ever in Cincinnati during the Great Blizzard of 1994. I was clerking that year for the most brilliant and gifted judge in the United States federal courts, the Hon. Danny J. Boggs of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and it was my turn to be in Cincinnati for the week’s appellate panels. Part One — Some Rambling (So Skip to Part Two If It Bores You) Judge Boggs’s chambers are based in Louisville, Kentucky.

Our local Walmart still has food, but we made an "emergency" trip yesterday to make sure and because there were so many things I could not get online. Amazon was not only out of TP, but flour and yeast!! Either it was "not available" or the price was insanely high. Very few people make bread anymore, but I happen to be one of them and my husband considers it a personal emergency if I'm not able to. We got the last bag of flour and a few packages of yeast--I did have a back stock, but we felt compelled. Many of the shelves were empty, but not all thank goodness. The situation almost forces you to be a hoarder on some level, at the rate things are going, you don't know if you'll be able to get things again. Something else is going on here, I cannot think of any reason, in this age of instant food, for the local Walmart and Amazon to be out of flour and yeast.

The difference between empty shelves scenes we see lately in capitalist countries and those in socialist countries is that for shelves in socialist countries, that is their normal condition*. In capitalist countries, the shelves are restocked by the time the store reopens the next morning. With 6 or 7 kinds of toilet paper. *Except for the exclusive stores party members shop at.

Exactly right, #2. Just wait till the next day, go early, and you'll be able to get the things that weren't on the shelves the day before.

This whole hoarding thing, the panic etc. can be blamed on 1. the media and 2. the left. I went into a supermarket yesterday afternoon and the store was stocked well. That was until I walked around a corner and to my surprise shelves from the floor to 8 feet high and 40 feet long where the bread was were completely empty, no bread, no hot dog buns, no hamburger buns. But, the rest of the store was fine. Weird? What do these people think. The bakers have not stopped baking. The dairy farmers have not stopped milking their cows. The truck drivers have not stopped delivering. What gives here? The only logical answer I can come up with is stupidity and panic primarily caused by the media screaming that the world is coming to an end from a virus that so far is no worse than others we have had in the past and did not panic. Well it looks like the democrats have gotten everything they wanted. They have moved from Russia, Russia, Russia to Corona, Corona, Corona. They have got something new to blame Trump for and to top it off they have totally trashed the economy which they have been wanting for months so they can blame Trump for that. And being the chumps we are, we have all fallen for it. Just in time for an election.

Been saying all along it is not as bad as a normal flu season, except the lamestream media is hyping it to he$$ and back to try and bring down Trump..but he was ahead of them all along..and our local Kroger, big player in our area has cut hours back to 7a-9p...presumably to 'restock' shelves...it is nothing more than panic buying by people who have not taken early precaution for this kind of upheaval...if you are always prepared for the worst, you don't have to worry...preppers have it all over the sheeple...

Went to Costco yesterday. Full shelves. No crowds. Pallets of water bottles and toilet paper but maybe a bit less than usual. I was there an hour after they opened at 10. The area Krogers are abbreviating their hours. Why? Stuff sells in a day that used to take a week meaning that extra stocking of items is necessary and it take more time than usual. That's all. Costco has that fixed because on Sunday they're only open 10-6 and they have all the extra time for re-stocking the shelves. I've got a number of 'I told you so'memes I'm saving for a couple weeks from now.

Was in Iowa during that same freeze. The dogs were sticking to the sidewalks, and my wife. Left the car running all night so it would start in the morning. Cost: 1/4 tank of fairly cheap gas.

Our local Walmart is usually open 24 hours a day. They are now closed at 10 and open at 6. Still, there are a lot of items in short supply. Happily, I bought a lot of toilet paper about a week before this madness hit. They still don't have any.

Doc Fischer is great! I just recently began reading his articles and besides being funny they are spot on about the disgustingly corrupt Jackasscrats and various goobermint bureaucrats. I wish that he would guest host for Rush or appear with Mark Levin sometime. The two of them together would be extremely energizing. Come on Mark, invite Dov on your show sometime and crack some skulls of the Jackasscrats.

a slight majority of Americans are idiots So true. Man, am I glad we retired to RURAL east Oklahoma. The percentage of fidiots is the same as major US cities. There's just less of them because the population is so sparse. The Wally World shelves are full here though. Plenty of toilet paper still left at the Dollar Generals too. Sucks to be you if you live in or near a big city.

"But why the run on toilet paper?" Because people are in a blind panic. When that happens they don't run around wild eyed and waving their arms like Kevin in Home Alone. They look like they always look. What gives away the panic is they act irrationally. Why hoard toilet paper? Because they see everyone else doing it. It's a stampede.

Actually, God works in wondrous ways. He sees how millennials and Gen Z-ers have been brainwashed by our schools and universities to become Bernie Bros and think they love "socialism", so He goes, "OK, let me give you a little preview of what it would be like...your fake schools and universities? Closed...How long? They're so smart, let them figure it out...your favorite malls, restaurants, theaters? Closed...your grocery stores? OK, kind of open, but you're going to fight like it's Black Friday to get in, and oh yeah, toilet paper? Gone... Anything else you want to know about socialism? Oh yeah, it's like this ALL the time.

Here behind enemy lines in Blue MA the shortages focused first on t.p., which is mostly utterly gone now, and now on any paper that might be used for t.p. (facial tissue and napkins, even paper towels). It's also started on food, mostly bread. I think the stores were just beginning to get a handle on it, or at least our disgusting RINO Gov Baker may have thought they were. He couldn't have that, though - it might help PDJT. So last night he banned all sit-down in restaurants and will "allow" only takeout. That will of course send the groceries into yet another tailspin, along with destroying the MA restaurant industry. All for what this jerk thinks is a political win and a happy day in TDS land. All this without a single death in our state from the Wuhan Virus (I now refuse to call it the CDC p.c. name). I do have a slight edge in the groceries in that I eat unlike most people - no sugar, all whole grain, that sort of thing. There were plenty of packages of my favorite low carb whole wheat wraps left while the others were mostly gone. And away from the city we patronize a small specialty chain grocery which has plenty of sliced meat. I'm set for a while, I think.

On Saturday morning I returned from Costa Rica. It took me 15 minutes to walk to the plane and out the door. I stopped by the store to get some fresh meat and produce. The store hours had changed, so I was there an hour early. Dozens of people were lined up waiting, victims of the panic and acting like people in Russia, willing to be ordered around for food. If you are so hungry you have to wait in line to be first, stop by McDonald's and get breakfast instead. When I returned a couple of hours later the store was as busy as before this last New Year's Day and everything was orderly. There was not the quantity and variety I would have liked, but I got what I needed for 2-3 days. This buying for 2-3 weeks is insane. I would bet everyone has several weeks worth of food, maybe a kind that you would give to a food pantry occasionally. It's not the best, but it will sustain you. If people would resist their instinct to hoard the situation would be better.

I live in a small town, (60k) outside SF. There was a line on Sat for Traders. Across the street at a Mexican market- I go to their delicious authentic Mexican togo restaurant , it was busy, but they were fully stocked. They have a fresh meat/fish butcher and they pack a ton in a small space. I picked up fresh produce, and everything I needed. They even had toilet paper. Super cheapo 7 eleven type and limited to one pack per customer, but they had it. Luckily a few weeks ago before everyone panicked I picked up my usually quarterly buy of toilet paper and water at Costco so we have enough to last us for at least a month or more. The media is almost gleeful in the way they are pushing this and I am disgusted with them.

We are witnessing the perfect storm: an irresponsible, Trump-hating, statistically challenged news media, politicians who feel they must act - no matter how illogically - or be criticized/voted out of office; and lawyers who have convinced everyone that if they hold an event and someone contracts this thing they will be sued for all they are worth. The strategy to quarantine/socially separate all of humanity is doomed to failure. The only way quarantine will work is if you test everybody in the world at one time, identify all with the virus, and then quarantine them. Otherwise, it's a losing battle, and, instead of wrecking the economy, creating conditions where people act like asses and further the false notion that "government can/should do everything", we should triage the population into less risk/high risk (i.e., 70 or over with known conditions that are enhanced by the virus, quarantine the high risk population for their safety, and then let this thing run its course across the world. Fauci keeps claiming this virus has a higher mortality rate than the flu, but he can't possibly know that because he doesn't have an accurate count of the total number of cases in the world, including mild ones from which the person recovers (probably thousands in China). By the way: notice how the media only reports on the number of new cases and deaths, and not one word about the number of recoveries from the virus? This will go down as THE biggest over-reaction in man's history.

Andrew Cuomo is has been on Fox for a very long time speaking in 'special English' so that he can be understood by New Yorkers as he runs for President of the United States. 98% of his pontificating is stuff people already know, but maybe New Yorkers don't and need to hear their droning governor.

Reply #1 - it is very simple to explain. An outlet that sells a week's inventory in 1/2 a day has no ability to replenish their stock overnight. The truck deliveries are scheduled on a timely basis for NORMAL stock replenishment. This hoarding will end just as soon as those that hoard feel they have enough goods on hand to last a year. PS: as you know certain items have sell by dates, and cows can't give extra milk because people are in a panic, nor chickens extra eggs, etc. Insofar as the horading of toilet paper, I have no explanation other than that people are irrational, other than those with children now at home so a tad extra may be required.

I went to a discount grocery store (not Walmart) and they limit certain items. No tp and none in the warehouse. We now have enough food for two weeks if quarantined. That is why there is panic buying. saw one woman with about 25 boxes of dried macaroni and cheese. Was that for others or a food bank? No one needs that much. Line were long and normally when we go the lines are not long. Not much traffic on the roads. Most everything closed but stores. Restaurants are closed except for takeout meals.

Its called conditioning, indoctrination. What we are witnessing is the creation of a third world country. The communists and our media , unless we stay strong and turn them back, are turning us into Cuba and Venezuela. They have created a panic. The news is totally dominated by one subject, hysteria, the end of the world. To help their cause they are shutting down our economy and our way of life. Yes we are fighting a pandemic or what ever you want to call it. But, when you start shutting down restaurants and every other event you can think of you are basically being put under house arrest. What they are doing is putting us under the dependency of the government. They now tell you when to go out, where you can and can't go and restrict your every movement. The scary part is we don't know how long this will last and we are already in a total panic. We know who is driving this and we better remember it. They are hypocrites of the lowest order. They say power corrupts and we are witnessing it every day.....Got it...

I recall that nitwit arquette calling for a boycott on or around March 2nd. They couldn't gin up enough support by making stupid statements and so I think they are using the Wuhan flu to frighten the lemmings into participating. I'm old, I've never seen anything like it. It's a cold for heaven sake. The public is not being allowed to gather, restaurants are closed, panic buying, the Dow is down and there has been a cyber attack on the hhs website. There is something sinister about all this.

Like my pal #11, we are snugly ensconced here at the homestead nestled in the forests of Mendocino County. Our small, backwater town of 5,000 is 17 miles south. We have long-term storage food and paper products in the upper pantry, in the workshop and in the cabin. We have our own well, with a hand pump option should it become necessary. Our generator has a direct hook-up to the propane tank, or TK can change the carburetor and run it on gasoline. We regularly face being snowed-in, rained out, earthquaked or its fire season. Late last week when the toilet paper panic stories started TK ran up to the tiny town just 7 miles north and picked up a gallon of milk and fresh loaf of bread. (What a hoarder!) During the Rodney King riot TK was LAPD and Cal National Guard. The afternoon of the first day he came home and changed from his blue uniform to his army camo. I didn't hear from him for four days. I was working admin at LAX and from my office in the old tower I watched buildings burning to the east and slowly move closer and closer to the airport. I drove around with TK's detective special on my lap. The veneer of civilization is very thin and we experienced first hand the underbelly of barbarity that it hides. Six months later we bought our property; 600 miles from LA and 150 miles from SF. I thank God for bringing us here to our Fort Serenity, far from the madding crowd. Socialism is Satan's philosophy manifested into our world. Do not let the Fake News keep your focus on the social or political situation only. In 1884 Pope Leo XIII had a vision of a conversation between God and Lucifer. The devil was boasting that with 100 years free reign he could destroy the Catholic Church. God gave him his choice, and Satan chose the 20th century. Lucifer's time is up and he and his minions have yet to reach their goal. They are pulling out all the stops, therefore we must also. Our first century Christian brothers and sisters are our role models. We are called to pray and fast. We are called to resist and confront evil. Put on the armor of God and join in the Great Battle. God is at work in the world and Donald Trump is his builder.

After years of urging its terrorists to attack major European cities, ISIS is now advising them to steer clear due to the coronavirus, according to reports. ISIS’ al-Naba newsletter contains “sharia directives” urging its healthy members not to enter “the land of the epidemic” to avoid becoming infected, the New York Post reported Sunday. But any sick jihadists already in Europe should stay there — presumably, to sicken infidels, the paper reported. The Sunday Times of London first reported on the newsletter, according to the paper. The “healthy should not enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it,” the ISIS newsletter advises, according to the Post.

On Sunday evening, the remaining candidates with a real shot at the Democratic nomination will meet in Washington amid a pandemic to state why they should be chosen to lead the nation. In many ways, the debate will vary from all others held since last summer. Instead of a large and diverse field of candidates, only two old, white men remain. And instead of testing their styles and one-liners in front of a crowd, this meeting will lack an audience. With so much stripped away, the candidates will either shine or fail. At this moment, it seems that the nomination is former Vice President Joe Biden's to lose.

That journalism is dead has been a punchline for so long that we’ve forgotten how that fact has real world consequences. We’re now paying the price for the failure of that profession to hold itself to any semblance of standards. As worry and straight-up panic sweep large swaths of the country, causing irrational toilet paper hoarding and runs on canned goods, there is no outlet and no journalist worthy of trust when it comes to conveying truthful information to the public or to hold anyone in power accountable. Eight years of sycophantic, throne sniffing coverage under President Barack Obama gave way to four years of nitpicking, hostility, and conspiracy theories.

If you are feeling the aches and pains of what you think is the flu, a trendy diet may be the culprit instead, a new study confirms. Researchers took a dive into what's become known as "keto flu" -- the fatigue, headache, nausea and mental fog that some people develop soon after starting a ketogenic diet. The keto diet, which is loaded with fat and skimpy on carbs, has become a popular way to lose weight. By depriving the body of carbs -- its main source of fuel -- the diet pushes it to burn fat instead.

Democratic debates in times of coronavirus make for even less interesting television than during normal times, whatever that means in the Trump era. In Sunday night’s debate, Bernie Sanders had a double task. For the believers, to make a last pitch that he is the better candidate (which, in terms of the presidency, he clearly is). For the realists, his task was to push the inevitable nominee, Joe Biden, more to the left. He probably achieved neither, as Biden stole the show, by announcing (cleverly) that he will pick a female vice-presidential candidate, a progressive weak point of Sanders (who

Once upon a time, Jennifer Rubin was an intelligent woman. Things started to go downhill when she went to work for the Washington Post, but what really flipped the switch in her brain was seeing Donald Trump become president. Not only did she lose perspective, but she also lost intelligence, self-restraint, and decency. Her latest flight of NeverTrump nastiness has her speculate about possible Republican deaths during a time of coronavirus. Her speculation not only reveals an even further degradation of mind and soul, but she's got things entirely bass-ackwards wrong – and a couple of maps prove it.

As a country, we’ve got our hands full right now. But while we’re sitting in various forms of self-quarantine, we — and a lot of other people around the world — will have a lot of time to read about the Chinese government destroying samples and suppressing information about the coronavirus in December: Chinese laboratories identified a mystery virus as a highly infectious new pathogen by late December last year, but they were ordered to stop tests, destroy samples and suppress the news, a Chinese media outlet has revealed. A regional health official in Wuhan, centre of the outbreak,

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sparked a backlash for his grandstanding criticism of the federal government’s response to the coronavirus crisis. The Democrat governor called out the “chaos” of Washington’s handling of the pandemic, essentially calling for the country to turn from its founding principles by urging coordinated action on a national level.(Video) “You look at the countries who have handled this, I don’t care if it’s China or South Korea, if it’s Italy. They were all handled by national leadership,” Cuomo said in a press conference on Monday. “This is a national problem. It can not be done in a piecemeal method. You need federal parameters

Who can forget the wonderful moment on MSNBC when Brian Williams and a guest from the New York Times Editorial Board assured us that Michael Bloomberg’s $500 million campaign spending worked out to $1 million for each one of the 327 million people in the United States? That was mind-numbingly stupid, but Bernie Sanders’ press secretary has equaled it, curiously with another 500 million mistake:(Snip for tweet) There are not 500 million Americans, let alone 500 million who go bankrupt each year, let alone 500 million who go bankrupt on account of medical expenses. It is hard to understand where Ms. Gray got her 500 million figure. The actual number
