    Warning!

    I dislike people as a general rule. Thanks to nCovid19, I may now be allowed to stab someone in the eye with a rusty spoon and call it self defense.

    I believe the old M11 BMW's had a form of limited NBC capability if necessary as a option.

    Arkansas roundup.

    They are tracking 100+ travelers. Fortunately were not a international airport... sorta.

    No cases yet, but its pending.

    ALL Hospitals, Nursing Homes etc BAN anyone who is not immediate caregiver. They automatically screen for fever and turn away those who have it. VA hospital has limited to three entrances in Little Rock, Night ER doors, North Doors by Day next to ER and south doors by day. ALL OTHER DOORS CLOSED> One caregiver or immediate family permitted provided they have not traveled or have fever. ALL OTHERS BANNED. If you have no business there or are not a vet you are not getting in by yourself. The three entrances are now manned 24/7 to interdict all.

    If you got sick in Arkansas with fever etc. You are not permitted to go to county health or ER or trauma or any care facility, you need to call to your doctor clinic first or 911 or something before you leave the house. You will be provided specific instructions to follow. Which may include staying home and not go anywhere for care.

    Even if you did go you will be met at the door, and seen as being sick and isolated on the spot. You probably will not gain entry as you planned on arrival. Things will get weird.

    Nursing homes. Flat ban. On all persons. Except doctor, nurse and staff who are giving or working there directly. ALL others including family are to sit home and visit online via social media, texts etc remotely.

    I expect a increasing cascade of bans across public spaces etc in the weeks to come as the cases arrive in Arkansas. It is very possible schools, churches, GAMES, etc will be closed to the public in time. You stay home and watch it online or get the results from the news tomorrow. Some events will not be held in the springtime but moved to october in some areas already.

    Thats all I have for now. Arkansas possesses 2000 test kits ready to go and there are 78 labs certified and entering production of testkits nationwide.

    And that's probably the only way to get the upper hand on this. Drastic isolation measures. As long as we are allowed to mingle in medium to large numbers. The virus will keep spreading.

    It is a little funny watching everybody freak out despite the fact that you know 1/2 of them never even wash the #### off their hands after taking a dump in a public restroom.

    That statement requires a major asterisk. You need to regularly reposition your portfolio to reflect the current business cycle and market conditions. Some call that playing ther market, the more aware call it actively managing your investments.

    If you are truly intent on "catching a falling knife" and buying into weakness while also lacking a process for your decisions, at a bare minimum, ladder into your position by breaking your intended purchase into a few smaller separate buys.
