Hard times ahead.

  1. It’s just the flu, bro.
    Primary hospitals close and people starve in the P.I. every year, right?

    • Bonaventure

      And for the millionth time….

      WHERE’S.

      YOUR.

      SOLUTION?

      “people starve in the P.I. every year, right?”
      Yes, that’s correct they do. Many impoverished and starving families temporarily resolve their starvation by selling (sometimes regularly pimping) their young daughters, and their son’s, into the PI’s profitable sex trade and ravenous appetite of international clientele.

      • Bonaventure

        It’s common knowledge that things haven’t been going so hot in the PI over the past decade or so, especially under Duterte. Just like the DNC here, Duterte (or maybe his enemies?) is not going to let a good crisis go to waste. Wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the reported hospital closures were politically motivated.

      Why have so many coronavirus patients died in Italy? The country’s high death toll is due to an ageing population, socialist/degraded health system and the way fatalities are reported.

      • Why are people talking about obituary sections in the local papers normally being one page and getting expanded to ten pages while this is going on, then?

        I’ll grant that chinavirus isn’t the only thing contributing to their deaths. Sorta like HIV isn’t the thing actually killing people who have it. But the correlation isn’t imaginary.

      • Italy like Iran has embraced China’s belt and road goals. Worked very closely with. Exchanging, meeting, regularly in all three countries. FTF,meetings, dog and pony shows.

        Most don’t realize how much Italy counts on handouts from China. Our MSM as usual’s been negative in reporting ” just the facts” Iran should be obvious.

        Trump is right to call out China on this Chinese bug. Fuck the whiners on the left, who are concerned for paving China into a corner. Fuckers are lucky the rest of the world don’t “Pave paradise, Put in a parking lot lot, lot, lot”!

    • Bonaventure

      Don’t be dissing my queen.

      That whole “let them eat cake” was entirely a fabrication made up by the nihilistic (((revolutionaries))) to gin up anti-royalist hatred within the sans- culottes.

      • I know that. I’m doing her a disserivce, it’s true. My excuse is that it’s a handy meme.

        The French royals and the Romanovs had at least this in common: they were far, far too gentle and civilized with the people who were plotting to murder them.

        • Hitler was only SLIGHTLY too gentle, and you see where that got him!!!

          • SemperFi, 0321

            We are headed the way of Czarist Russia and Germany, and the dumbmasses are clueless they are aiding and abetting the Bolsheviks in their own demise.
            But at this point, what does it matter?

      • Much like you’re ginning up hatred against reality to gain favor with the nihilisticsans cervelle.

  3. It is going to be difficult to continue to read the Manila correspondent’s articles as he gets less and less food. In North Texas, we are still getting supplies in the stores, although this county is ordered (?) to stay home til March 31st. Except for the necessary. It would be nice at least if the deranged leftists stopped screaming about racism if some one says Chinese Flu. I’m all out of fucks to give on racism. With ya on that one Bonaventure, the Queen of France has gotten a bad rap from the revolutionaries for far too long. I never took much stock in them revolutionaries when I found out they got her kids drunk and forced them to hurl insults at her, then gang-raped her before execution.

    • Grenadier1

      There is an upside to this. A lot of the power that the left has built into their “Racism” accusations begins to fall on deaf ears. People are going to see the benefits of closing borders and repatriating manufacturing.

        Not surprisingly, you missed the SNARK, Buffalo Bedpan.

        • Au contraire, I saw the snark, O Great Shitposting Troll.
          It’s actually a pretty good effort at a meme, which I mainly tell you just because it will probably piss you off.
          But that’s what makes the counterargument work just as well.

          And since all the Gibsmedat clan doesn’t pay taxes anyway and never have (at least not directly) they won’t give a damn about the debt until they’re roasting rats over oil drums, and riding around in assless chaps through the wastelands in search of gasoline and more Dinky Doo Dog Food.

          • DMV GRINGO

            “O Great Shitposting Troll.”
            Oh, the fucking irony, you delusional turd of drumpfimg grandeur, you know nothing, Buffalo Bedpan, of zero strategic and tactical intelligence.

          • DMV GRINGO

            And, unlike your queefing shithole, freedom of speech is allowed here (Thanks, CA!) How fortunate for you, you mutt.

  5. rightwingterrorist

    Well, DMV, not really.
    You’re still going to have to pay taxes on that.

    -rightwingterrorist

    • DMV GRINGO

      Well, yes, really.
      The brother Jack meme is representative of the psyche that will manifest among the EBT/Welfare King’s & Queen’s/Couch Humping Sheeple AND countless Blue Collar, napalmed small business people, and the ranks of the decimated middle-class, when they realize that $1,200 (plus some additional loose change for families with children) is all that’s forthcoming to them from an additional $2 trillion of debt.

      • rightwingterrorist

        One can only hope.

      • it be a really really bad time not to have your ducks lined up neatly in a row

        for most, it just wasn’t/isn’t possible

        for many it was, but they squandered their opportunities

        take heart knowing some are squared away and tightly wound 🙂

        there’s a lot to be said for NOT having mouths to feed

        tfA-t has more $ than he’ll ever spend..

        not because he has THAT much- but, because he isn’t THAT

        STEWPUT

        i worry more about losing it from bank failures, market collapse, and devaluing

        note: you can only have so much cash on hand- and even that may become un-usable or worthless

        same with metals…

        health, skills, land, and freedom are the MOST important currency going

        work on that..

  6. I have to refute a few comments here.

    1 The Philippines has been doing extremely well financially for over a decade. Roads are choked with new cars, new homes everywhere, rapidly growing. Business has been extremely good. The number of new high rises going up is astonishing.

    2 The poor here are always poor due to bad habits. Hood rats gotta hood no matter where in the world. The Philippines does not buy off their hood rats with welfare like the USA, and there is a higher percentage of the population that are hood rats in the Philippines. It is actually very difficult to hire workers here. those who have jobs do not need another and those lazy will not work even if I pay 125% of the going rate. I had signs up all over a slum looking for workers and in 3 months I got exactly zero applicants for menial labor jobs that paid pretty damn good.

    3 I personally am not going hungry… Yet. Because I saw this coming and I been bloggin bout it since Jan30

    4 My bigger personal concern is about stability and order here. this place is a powder keg waiting to explode.

    5 I do know people personally who I warned to prepare, and ignored my advice who are now on their last maybe 2 weeks of food stocks.

    6 Your experiences in the Philippines in the 70’s 80’s or 90’s living on the bases do not reflect the reality of the Philippines 50-25 years years later. Just because you spent a year or two in Angeles and banging some bar girls or married a bar girl and brought her home to magical America, does not mean that you know jack about how things work over here.

    @aesop WTF bro, I been defending you and you throw me under the bus as a flu denier????

    • Anything but.

      I was just sarcastically parroting the Dipshit Platoon from F Troop hereabouts, whose standard answer here for a month is that this is all “just a hoax!”

      I’m waiting for them to explain away the current situation in NYFS, GA, CA, LA, AL, MI, NJ, and CT.

      And thanks for the on-the-ground reports from P.I.
      Straight info is always gold. For most people.

  8. Haters gotta hate, actually you men amuse me. You see, I know each of you are much better men then you portray here.

    This is STILL the United States, each are allowed their own opinion, view, religion, choice of what they drink, what they eat.

    Honestly I don’t think I know any Jews, if I,did, they would be treated as others here are, “My equal” so we disagree, big deal. Welcome to the party!.

    Y’all have a great night?
