Quote II

"Due to the coronavirus, the police department is asking that all criminal activities stop until further notice. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in the matter. We will update you when we deem it’s appropriate to proceed with yo bad selves," The Struthers (Ohio) Police Department


Quote III

"The executive order allows the city to be flexible to properly respond to the emergency needs of our community. None of the options will necessarily will be implemented but are available in order to protect the welfare and safety of our community if needed," Jeff Hamilton the City of Champaign's Communications Manger


And of course Quote III leads us into Quote IV


Quote IV

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure. Thomas Jefferson


Quote V


Do you know how many people were hospitalized in 2009-2010 with the swine flu? Three hundred thousand were hospitalized. So 60 million people infected, 300,000 hospitalized. And nobody even remembers it. And why? Well, because we had a different president. We had a Democrat president by the name of Barack Obama, and the news then was how wonderfully well Obama was handling it, how expertly well Obama was dealing with it. Rush Limbaugh


Quote VI

In one way, we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.”


In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways. We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors—anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty. C.S. Lewis

Never. Ever. Let. A. Crisis. Go. To. Waste. Especially if you can f*ck over law abiding citizens.

You have probably read about how greatly various aspects of criminal justice reform have improved life in American society. New York State’s bail reform law, which eliminates cash bail in order to level the playing field, has already cost at least one life, while returning an arsonist and a rapist to the streets.

But that’s only scratching the surface of what liberals have in mind. Virginia, whose legislature is now controlled by Democrats, is weighing legislation that would free middle-aged murderers.

Now in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic, the Left is calling for governments to release prisoners en masse, reduce arrests, and limit immigration enforcement.

Squad member Ayanna Presley, whose new bald look and constantly fluttering extra-long lashes, have been a subject of conversation on social media, was a guest on Al Sharpton’s shows on MSNBC. There she laid out the particulars for the case of commuting sentences to protect the prison population from infection. A video appears below, followed by a transcript of the interview.

Reason #634 why government should not be in involved in retail.

UPDATE: All state-run liquor stories in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties will close, effective Tuesday, March 16, until further notice, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board said Saturday. All 88 stores in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties will be open regular hours tomorrow, Sunday, March 15. On Monday, March 16, only select locations will open. That list can be found at the bottom of this story. The LCB noted that Pennsylvania residents can shop for wine and spirits at www.FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com, having purchases shipped directly to their homes.

Pennsylvania, in the grip of a national health crisis, is taking drastic steps to limit person-to-person interactions.

Once again the Left shows their contempt for Americans who don't agree with them.

This is just disgusting, MSNBC’s Joy Ried and her guest Jennifer Rubin from the Washington Post explain why more Republicans will die from the coronavirus.

According to Jennifer Rubin who writes for the Washington Post we are all just a bunch of old stupid lemmings:

“[T]here is a particular cruelty, irony that it is their core viewers, the Republican older viewers, who are the most at risk,” she said. “And when you think about it, which party immediately canceled all of their rallies? Which party immediately started having their political figures really portray and use their lives as an example? It was the Democrats. So typically, there will be less Democrat deaths because there will be less mass gatherings. There will be less opportunities for people to congregate and share this horrible disease. So it is really a very short-sided strategy. But I think now the name of the game is how do they get back on planet earth. And part of the way that I think that they are doing it is down the memory hole. He jumped right on this right away because of all this planning that we’re doing so well, which is head-spinning for the rest of us who watched him for weeks say this is a hoax. But this is how they do it at Fox News.

WTF? Social distancing. FFS.

Social distancing means that many of us will be spending quality time at home this weekend rather than out at bars, restaurants, and concerts with friends. Just because you’re staying a safe distance away from other people doesn’t mean you can’t hang out with them virtually.

In Japan, which instituted social distancing before we did in the US, women are using Zoom to have virtual happy hours. Drinking with friends online has become such a thing there’s even a word for it: on-nomi, or online drinking, Vice reports.

If you had a heart and soul you wouldn't do this to a dog. Yet your fellow man? Italians over 80 'will be left to die' as country overwhelmed by coronavirus. Hardest-hit region drafts new proposals saying who will live and who will die

Coronavirus victims in Italy will be denied access to intensive care if they are aged 80 or more or in poor health should pressure on beds increase, a document prepared by a crisis management unit in Turin propose.

Some patients denied intensive care will in effect be left to die, doctors fear.

The unit has drawn up a protocol, seen by The Telegraph, that will determine which patients receive treatment in intensive care and which do not if there are insufficient spaces. Intensive care capacity is running short in Italy as the coronavirus continues to spread.

The document, produced by the civil protection deparment of the Piedmont region, one of those hardest hit, says: "The criteria for access to intensive therapy in cases of emergency must include age of less than 80 or a score on the Charlson comorbidity Index [which indicates how many other medical conditions the patient has] of less than 5."

Nothing good ever happens when man decides he is God.

Sure it is satire. But too close to the truth I'm afraid.

BURLINGTON, VT—In a video message recorded from one of his many, many houses, Bernie Sanders has called on the workers of the world to unite and seize the means of toilet paper production.


Sanders was under quarantine because he is old and susceptible to the virus. So he delivered the message remotely, but it was just as powerful as if he had delivered it to thousands of Bernie bros in person: "Workers of the world, unite and seize the means of producing bath tissue in large quantities!"

Being a well-known communist, Sanders criticized the free market for having so much prosperity and toilet paper that people could run out and purchase hundreds of rolls they don't even need on a whim. "1% of the people now own 99% of the toilet paper. Under a socialist system, each person would get an equal amount, which would probably be two or three squares. But at least we would all be equal."

It is amazing the things you learn as The ONT Cob. For example I never knew that students in West Virginia got 'Cabin Fever'.

At least nine people were charged Thursday evening as police used tear gas to disperse a crowd of defiant party goers in a neighborhood outside West Virginia University’s campus.

Officers with the Morgantown Police Department responded around 5:46 p.m. to Beverly Avenue between Fourth and Fifth streets — minutes away from campus — to reports that a large party had shut down part of Beverly Avenue, police said.

Authorities said people threw beer bottles, beer cans and other things at them. More than 1,000 people were “blocking the street, congregating on rooftops, consuming alcohol,” according to Eric Powell, deputy chief of the Morgantown Police Department.

After requesting backup, police tried asking people to leave using a loudspeaker, which only made matters worse. The crowd continued to grow and people kept throwing items at police, officials said. West Virginia University Police and other assisting agencies helped restrict access to the area, while emergency personnel stood nearby.

Contrary to the Left's contention. Yes. There are some other civilizations better than others.

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” the old saying goes.

But what do you have to consume to protect yourself from coronavirus? According to one Hindu group in India, the answer is simple – a tall glass of cow urine.

Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (All India Hindu Union) will be hosting a cow urine drinking party to test their belief that the golden substance will help protect their bodies against the pandemic known as COVID-19. Because their religion says that cows are sacred, their urine is alleged to have medicinal properties.

“We have been drinking cow urine for 21 years, we also take bath in cow dung. We have never felt the need to consume English medicine,” said Om Prakash, one of the pee party attendees.

Will the last sane person in San Francisco turn off the lights when you leave?

SAN FRANCISCO - A San Francisco supervisor wants the city to remove billboards about drug overdoses that are meant to promote Narcan training.

In a tweet, Catherine Stefani said the billboard on Seventh Street, between Brannan and Bryant, sends the wrong message.

What are you in jail for? Being a Genius Award Winner.

MARCH 11--As the coronavirus scare prompts panicked runs on toilet paper worldwide, a Florida Man was arrested yesterday for the 1 AM theft of some two-ply bath tissue from a neighbor’s vehicle, according to court records.

Police allege that Safraz Shakoor, 25, burglarized a Dodge truck parked in the driveway of a residence a few blocks from his Clearwater home.

Shakoor, cops say, was recorded on a Ring video surveillance camera entering the unlocked truck’s backseat and swiping “a roll of toilet paper from a 6-pack of Smart & Simple bath tissue.”

A pack of the toilet paper--perhaps the cheapest brand on the market--sells for $1 at Dollar General (though the retailer is currently out of stock, according to its web site). The product is described as “Made in the USA from 100% recycled fiber.”
