The Arthur Legend
Was there really a King Arthur who rose following the Roman departure from England? I don’t know. Does the location of Tintagel Castle coincide with an earlier fortification? I don’t know that either.
(Link) “Tintagel Castle was built in the early 13th century by Richard, 1st Earl of Cornwall — the younger brother of King Henry III of England and one of the wealthiest men in Europe. Lacking in any strategic value and constructed in a style that was purposefully out of date, Richard was deliberately bringing a lost legend to life.”
Is the Wuhan Coronavirus an accidental release of a weaponized viral agent. The evidence mounts (more here). If it’s not a designed weaponized version, it should be. The virus is persistent, it has an exceptionally long incubation period and it seems to be more incapacitating than similar viral strains of coronavirus. Additionally, the Chinese government is TREATING this plague in precisely the way you would an accidental weaponized release from their bug factory in Wuhan.
It is a bit concerning- not just the virus, but the sort of actions a gut shot cornered communist government might take.
On a personal level my chances of catching it is slightly above getting hit by an asteroid. My chances of being affected by a worldwide financial upheaval, much higher.
Thinking back to 9/11, I was working on my Dodge cargo van when I heard the news. Went back to working on the van. Point; do what you can do but don't use something as an excuse to sit on your ass, IMO.
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are".
A story- most of us, would view this as inspirational,
sort of a get to work, don't make excuses, don't wait till tomorrow, just get to work and figure it out.
I once quoted this to a leftist, who instantly viewed it as a limitation- why should you settle for what you have and where you are? I don't know, the actual brain chemistry must be different or something.
My tactic is to arrive at Costco around noon on a week day when they have the food samples out. I indulge in a jumbo hotdog and soda at the food court (still $1.50 + tax) then re-fill my soda, grab a cart, and forage my way across the store. I try to make my grab when the nice lady is talking to someone else.
I like the great opening infographic. Does Macron see himself as a kind of Rothschile protege Bonaparte? France doesn't seem to agree. Near media blackout, presictably.
The virus story only gets more shady…
They're taking those actions now. I'm following developments and know people on the ground, who I speak with almost every day.
I think that the true, dyed in the wool, extreme leftists are missing a common sense gene.
That's sound philosophy. I do much the same except that occasionally I have a chicken-bake.
Macron and his memory for the most part, will be easily swept away by history. Germany is trying to keep France from making its FREXIT but there is a lot of pressure building to do just that.
WSF, as you point out, we buy a lot from China and there will be a lag as other counties pick up the manufacturing slack. Will it hurt China's business? Profoundly.
Another brilliant post, and the commenters are on target as well.
Thanks for the post.
