    flatten the curve of the limits to growth

    re: #48

    Thank you for reminding readers of what Peak Prosperity started as – a focus on the limits to growth (ecology, energy, economics).  Not climate denial, nor speculation on bioengineered viruses or extreme political idiotology.

    We are suffering from moron-a-virus-45, but that affliction is not limited to a particular political perspective.  It’s not the end of the world but it might be the end of complacency.

    Re: Must have existing loan

    DTrammel – this is really bringing out the very worst behavior in bankers, or at least exposing it to the light of day – again.

    They are displaying zero compassion to people in a time of extraordinary crisis, nor are they showing any gratitude for being bailed out in 2008.

    Their true stripes are showing.

    Yes, it’s as pathetic as it seems.

    re: Full STOP!

    plan for tomorrow, I suspect it was corporate pharmacy policy to forbid employees from wearing masks, so as not to scare their customers.  There are hospitals even now that are forbidding staff from wearing PPE, unless it is a known COVID case, again for PR purposes.

    Must Have Existing Loan

    Re: new video

    They cynic in me says the catch is, if you apply for one of these SBAloans, the money won’t go directly to you, but will be used to pay down an existing loan with the bank.

    Their excuse will be look we lightened your expenses (and got the money for ourselves, sucker!).

    The top picture is of a former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke. Further down I like the Bin Reaper. Haven’t seen Binderella yet, although that must surely be only a matter of time.

    Full STOP!

    Agreed, perfectly logical end of story. You had me weeks ago when you said :that South Korea as an aside had NO regular seasonal flu cases as a result of wearing a mask to fight the Honey Badger virus and 0 (zero) season flu patients screamed of the value of wearing the mask. Today I went to pick up some meds I have to take. I was screened before entering the pharmacy. As I went to the counter to get my meds as my wife dropped off my script an hour before so I wouldn’t have to wait, I was waited on by the teller who wasn’t wearing a mask!!! I know, stupid. I said to her that she must see 200 people during her shift if not more and she doesn’t wear a mask! I said you’re crazy, that I don’t want to breath her spew, that she was going to get sick, no if’s and’s or but’s. So, I insisted she get one and put it on and I stood 10 feet from her. She refused, made light of it and I like this person, I have known her 20 years or so. So I insisted louder and had the manager come to assist us. I told her that if the teller didn’t care about herself that she needs to care about me and others, that she needed to put on a mask. She refused and I insisted the manager, who was wearing a mask to process me. The Folks in the room with me were attentive and one lady and one gentlemen started to clap. Before I left the lady that initially waited on me put on a mask. I told them that Chris M., who has done a whole series on this at PP and could be viewed on U-tube for free has done a remarkable job at logically and with a data series of evidence should prove to all that wearing a mask is the way to go. So, I had a grand ole time explaining to hospital staff that it is imperative that they think for themselves and look at the logic of it all and to really focus and to leave their strange character flaws outside the building. That I don’t care if you believe in this at all, it should be an easy jump to thinking a mask protects me and my mask protects you. I respectfully wore my mask so I wouldn’t get the teller sick and she damn well better wear a mask to protect me regardless of what she thinks. Once again, the people agreed with me and shamed her to change her mind. We must police ourselves if it becomes necessary. Thank you Chris and Adam, I believe in you, come back every day because you matter, you are our treasure and I must support your work because I believe in your work. I am certain Chris you would rather be with your lovely bride, getting your nest organized with your stuff and spending time together just imagining a full life together. Yet, you take 10 hours of every day doing the right thing by trying to help others. You are inspirational and Evie gets included in all of this too as well as Adam’s entire family but especially his Lady as well. We all make sacrifices, my Lady is front and center and the shit is really hitting the fan at the hospital now. My job is to help her decompress and to listen and allow her, almost insist that she dump all her stuff on my lap so she remains healthy and has my support. Barb is tough, a remarkable Women, thankfully mine and I have never, ever loved her more or been a better friend. WOW! As an aside: What has amazed me and is a truthful data set, 9 out of 10 good folks that test positive have been Black at that her floor has treated. Men are being tested positive 2 to 1 to the Lady’s. Obviously it has to do with staying the Fuck home, wearing a mask when out and distancing. But, still, too many Blacks for my understanding. I just found this stat to be unusual and I really have no idea what unusual is in this regards but it caused me to say “really”! Be safe. Wear a mask. FULL STOP! Peace

    Great Expectations

    It seems like a lot of people genuinely believe this will be over by the end of April, although some are using the word months which most think / believe is two months.

    We’re in for a collective shock when this isn’t really over until there is a proven vaccine available for mass consumption (18m?-24m?) or when we get herd immunity by accident because 75-80% of the population get infected before the vaccine is ready.

    Folks planning their lives around getting back to normal in early May or at the worst early June, and it’s not likely to be that way.  Just ugh.

    Hopefully I’m mistaken…

    China War?

    Great!   Here come the EMP satellites!

    I wonder if they will use the N.Korean EMP weapons, which are already in orbit?

    Can you imagine all the power going bye-bye, while we are having fun with COVID-19?

    Okay, gotta stock up on more Scotch!
