Virus? What Virus? (Weekend Edition)

So much for Covid-19, 11:00 PM curfews, and other restrictions on bars. The nightclub scene was hopping in Jackson last night.

The top poster is for August 21, but otherwise, the rules are only applied to the little people, not friends of Baby Chok.

Looks like a great place to catch several types of viruses

I haven't gone back and checked, but I thought the curfew and the bar closings go into affect on Monday. If that's the case, then these folks don't have to worry about Baby Chock sending out JPD to do any enforcement.

You mean there's more than one virus in MS?

Dr. Osterholm is on Coast to Coast AM right now on SuperTalk. It is a repeat from years ago. Interesting to listen to his expertise pre-Covid.

I am surprised that nobody has made a Blazing Saddles reference since it is the favorite comedy movie of all boomers.

Labeling those flyers misogynistic is so loaded with assumptions that I'm not even going to try to untangle it.

Coast to Coast?

He sure is making himself a little bit too available in the media. Trying to be a celebrity expert?

Meanwhile: Am I the only one who has noticed the stores are out of canned Diet Cokes (except for the trendy, tiny cans)? This can only mean the warehouses are empty.

I can make it without toilet paper and hamburger meat, but not Diet Coke.

Jackson is a virus. You can catch the virus at Jackson City. Drive up the street there are more viruses at the State Capitol. Get a shot of shot of penicillin and a few cup of pepto and you'll just be fine.

Late-night club on East McDowell? Viruses would be my last fear. "Grand opening" could certainly have more than one meaning.

They aren't out of Diet Coke. They are out of cans. Just buy it in plastic bottles.

Metal shortages are the first sign of hyerinflation. Same reason it is hard to find coins. Items that hold value are being held on to.

People aren't hoarding because of Covid-19. They are hoarding because the money printing press has been running nonstop since the scamdemic.

Inflation destroys value and it destroys savings. So people convert their money into things they perceive as having intrensic stored value. Things like guns and ammo, precious metals, industrial metals, and coins.

Since I do not hail from the Jackson Metro, I Must ask: Is this club a "gentleman's club" or just a regular night club?

@9:13, showed this to several unrelated female co-workers who did find it offensive and misogynistic. Just saying, someone untangled it and found that.

"Metal shortages are the first sign of hyerinflation. Same reason it is hard to find coins. Items that hold value are being held on to."

Why do people want to think zebras when they hoofbeats? People aren't hoarding coins, it's just that the normal streams of "coin flow" have been interrupted. The amount of coins minted is based upon the need for them in normal commerce, so when more people switch to cards or contactless payment, make significantly fewer small daily purchases, reduce the usage of things like laundromats, car washes, and other largely coin-based things, etc., the flow of coins gets disrupted. As that disruption works its way throughout the system, what starts as a minor disruption builds up. It doesn't mean lots of people are hoarding change, it just means lots of people simply aren't able to circulate the handful of change they happened to have as the outlets for disbursing change were reduced.

Yikes! Get a grip. The USA isn't Venezuela! Smart people are buying stocks like Hertz and Theranos. Just get a Robinhood account, you nut!

The Governor’s latest restrictions of closing at 11pm and only serving those that are seated WAS in effect starting last Friday. This club like several others in Jackson simply do not care. Where is ABC enforcement! These places are not hard to find and they are openly advertising their violations.

Also, several are owned by the most notorious club owners in MS, the Owens family.

@9:35,
You are literally repeating what the MSM keeps telling everyone. You are the definition of sheeple. Have you done any research on your own? Do you know what a Coinstar machine is? Did you know that Coinstar is offering no FEE for exchanging coins instead of charging to convert them to paper, but still cant get coins? Every apartment complex in the Metro that has a Laundromat. Every carwash and laundromat has empty coin exchange machines.

You can always tell the people who have never bothered to seriously prep or even read books about prepping. They are the same people trying to buy silver, guns and ammunition right now at enormous markups.

It's keep too late! Just keep watching Netflix lol

Anonymous said...

9:35 sounds like a guy without a stockpile of coins. Good luck buying food and ammo after the collapse.

Anonymous said...

11:35 You'd better have something like a literal ton of coins to have anything of value. Melt value of a penny is 1/2 cent, a nickel is 4 cents, a dime is 1.5 cents, and a quarter is a whopping 4 cents for anything minted since 1965, except for pennies which changed in 1982.

It isn't the intrinsic value that has people hoarding coins. If you're concerned about the collapse you'd be better off buying silver and gold in bouillon form, or if you really want the coin materials buy copper, nickel, and zinc in bars.

Anonymous said...

9:35AM responding (with a smile on my face) -

"Coinstar...no fee!...etc." Trolls aside, anyone who thinks sensible people are going to fool around in the midst of a pandemic to change a few dollars of coins into a few dollars of paper, and with no real benefit to do so, um, well, doesn't have any sense.

It's funny because when this alleged coin shortage first made the news a couple of months or so ago, several friends and colleagues in the medical profession had a brief discussion about it and we realized that none of us had used any appreciable amount of cash in the past few months and many of us had nothing but larger bills and a double handful of miscellaneous change.

As to hoarding coins for some sort of "collapse," modern coins wouldn't have any more relative value or desirability than modern paper money and in fact, a horde of coins could easily be less desirable - would sensible people rather try to hide, carry, or secure $500 or $5000 in change or paper money?

Lastly, it is both curious and amusing that the loons that horde change and toilet paper in case of collapse, but refuse to wear a mask or distance to help prevent it, are mostly a subset of the folks who are convinced that the Donald and crew are going to save the US from that very collapse AND are convinced it is all in the hands of God, anyway. I'd suggest that God might be trying to tell you to just wear a mask and distance rather than to gather 1,000 rolls of TP and $1000 in pocket change.

What are the bank notes made of?

Anonymous said...

12:20, you think you are so clever but please tell me what is the intrinsic value of a banknote? what do I get if I melt a pile of bank notes? I hear they can be used for toilet paper when there is none to be found.

12:33 Of your many points, I'd say two were correct & two incorrect... but let's remain friends.

You gonna do something similar on Robert Foster’s restaurant where he bragged about ignoring the Gov’s orders? Or do we only report bad things in blue cities?

I have 10 rolls of uncirculated 2020 "America the Beautiful" quarters. That's the one with the 2 bats on the reverse side. Yep, Covid Quarters. They are going to try to memory hole those quarters and claim is is the Mandela Effect. I will have proof that the mint made Covid-19 Coins.

Well, 12:53PM, I'm not 12:20, but...

"what do I get if I melt a pile of bank notes?"

A visit from the Secret Service, which is the same as if you melt a pile of coins.

And even in your dreamed-of collapse, when presumably they will have other things to do, you're going to gather the equipment and fuel necessary to melt coins that have less value in metal than the face value or the cost of acquiring the actual metal in a pure, useful form such as wire, so that after amortizing the equipment and fuel costs, you'll lose money. In your wondrous zombie collapsalypse, just what do you plan to do with a coupla-pound (or less) roughly-smelted hunk of (mostly) copper, wire up a sex robot (which will short out due to faulty materials) or something equally likely?

If I may ask, are you employed in some sort of financial management role with a government agency or just dreaming about finding such a job...well, collapsalypse aside?

You can always tell you've won the argument when you've left your opponent a studdering pile of ad hominem attacks lol.

Anonymous said...

And you can always tell when you're in an argument with an "absurdum hominem" when they basically suggest hoarding change so one can melt down $500 in change to get about $60 worth of metal rather than taking the $60 and buying 20 pounds of copper, or even 1/2 of the $500, buying $250 of copper wire (which would actually have about 2.5 to 3 times the pure copper as the change) and doing something sensible with the rest.

The facts: $500 in quarters is about 25 lbs of metal, which would be about 20ish pounds of copper. 1000 feet of 12/2 contains about 60 pounds of copper and would cost about $250.00. Hoarding change for the metal is about like hoarding toilet paper so you can burn it and be toasty-warm under your bridge in the winter.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
