Not meaning to be flip at all, but India always has huge numbers of people whose lives are hanging by a thread. Sorry to hear this, but always when the Old Chinese Curse, "May you live in interesting times!" comes around, the poor people always have fewer ways to cope with whatever it is that is "interesting" than people with more means.

The world hasn’t made much progress in alleviating human misery since history began. No matter the advancement in technology, politics and panic kill millions as always.

The social distancing lock-down "cure" may be worse than the disease itself in this case. Millions may starve to prevent millions from dying from the Wuhan virus. Which is worse? The problem of a wrecked economy and long term starvation may actually be the worse alternative in India to allowing the disease to run it's course until vaccines become available. But politicians have to look like they are doing something.

No problem poster #1. I am just sick of my grown relatives freaking out because they have to stay inside and that the times are 'terrible'. They need to get some perspective. They have no sense of history. They forget people like Anne Frank. They forget our pioneer forbears. We live in a land of plenty & luxury. I think a lot of the people who freak out have TDS.

#4 x10. On one of the MSM news programs it went into the typically maudlin facetime bits from teary eyed New Yorkers or some other blue city dwellers. There was a nurse, a nurse mind you, who was wailing about all the sickness and death and said (no joke), "I didn't sign up for this!" Ummm...yes you did sweetie. I thought I was seeing a replay of a field hospital in VN when the camera crew came by to further ruin the morale of our troops and the public. This lady was pathetic.

I can’t believe all of these people are without jobs - 2 or 3 of them call me everyday to cut my credit card interest rates, inform me that my social security number has been compromised, or tell me the FBI has a warrant out for my arrest if I don’t call this number immediately. I try to be friendly so I usually start the conversation with “Hello A-Hole” which cause them to go F-Bombs ripple in a tirade that would make Alec Baldwin blush.

As a legal immigrant from India and a red white blue conservative US citizen, some of the insensitive, racist and stereotype replies reveals the ignorance and arrogance that is usually displayed by the pseudo secular left. Very sad! Every country has its bad apples and to use it to broad brush a billion people does not suit the folks here. Show some class!

Historical perspective might remind us that 'social distancing' has not stopped plagues from spreading in the past, and that while Anne Frank gives some valuable advice on how to endure long periods of having to shelter in place, what she was trying to avoid still eventually got her, as she wound up being hauled away from her hideout to die in a Nazi concentration camp. As we read in both the 'Old Testament' and the 'New Testament' -- those whose priority is saving their lives will lose them. A prominent message from Isaiah that is repeatedly cited by Jesus in the Gospels. Letting the scourge sweep the world and do its damage may be the least destructive strategy, cumulatively speaking.

So my state is 'locked down' except for essential employees. Apparently, packing and shipping women's wear is an essential task and dear spouse is required to work. Her cancer doc is livid but if she wants to keep a job and not end up at Amazon, she has to keep at it. I tell her to stay home and we will just eat the costs, but medical care is very expensive without insurance.

The Trump administration said on Tuesday said it will begin treating five major Chinese state-run media entities with U.S. operations the same as foreign embassies, requiring them to register their employees and U.S. properties with the State Department. Two senior state department officials said the decision was made because China has been tightening state control over its media, and Chinese President Xi Jinping has made more aggressive use of them to spread pro-Beijing propaganda. "The control over both the content and editorial control have only strengthened over the course of Xi Jinping's term in power," said one official. "These guys are in fact arms of the CCP's (Chinese Community Party's) propaganda apparatus."

Changes to an academic curriculum normally do not arouse public controversy, but we do not live in normal times. Yale University’s decision to abolish its venerable “Introduction to Art History: Renaissance to the Present” has drawn considerable publicity and outrage, surely to the surprise of its instructors. For Tim Barringer, chairman of the art-history department, it was a straightforward act of modernizing. “No one survey course taught in the space of a semester could ever be comprehensive,” he told the Yale Daily News, nor could any single course “be taken as the definitive survey of our discipline.” Instead of that course’s heroic journey from Michelangelo to Jackson Pollock ...

Report: Violent Crime
Rate in 2018 Lowest Since 1971
3 replies
Posted by Zarin 10/2/2019 6:22:27 AM Post Reply
Statistics drawn from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program show that the violent crime rate in 2018 hit its lowest level since 1971. FBI crime stats show the “estimated rate of violent crime was 368.9 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants.” That is a 3.9 percent reduction in the rate when compared with 2017 stats, but the real lesson emerges when we look long term. For example, Bearing Arms reports that the 2018 rate of violent crime was barely above the 1971 rate of 396 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. Ironically, one of the greatest differences between 1971 and 2018 is that there are exponentially more privately-owned firearms

Divorced, excommunicated, 25 years old with three children, my mom never felt sorry for herself. She told me time and again during my boyhood that we should appreciate everything we had.

Watching my infant son turn blue, with nary a breath or a heartbeat, taught me how quickly I had taken him for granted (he survived). We take things for granted all the time, don’t we?
