Putting Sugar in a Gas Tank is Easy

That’s what I would do if some scumbag ripped me off like this. And that’s if I’m in a good mood. Smashing a window or slashing a couple tires is pretty easy too. And I hear the cops have decided to stop enforcing laws against such acts in a few major cities already.

CNN: People Are Luring Instacart Shoppers With Big Tips — And Then Changing Them to Zero

Instacart must really hate their employees to allow this to continue. I wonder why Instacart wants a national reputation as a business that helps their customers steal from their employees?

Does that seem like smart PR to you?

WSJ: To Curb the Coronavirus, Hong Kong Tells the World Masks Work

See here:

“In Hong Kong, there was never any doubt about the need for face masks. Most people here, including an epidemiologist helping guide the response, are adamant that widespread mask use has been crucial in keeping the city from becoming a viral hot zone.

“If not for universal masking once we depart from our home every day, plus hand hygiene, Hong Kong would be like Italy long ago,” said K.Y. Yuen, a Hong Kong microbiologist advising the government. “If you look at where we’ve had clusters, it’s places where the masks come off, like hot-pot family dinners or Buddhist temples.”

Which raises the question: Just how severely should U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams be punished for deliberately lying about this for months?

I think life in prison in the Florence, Colorado Supermax with the terrorist murderers Ramzi Yousef and Ted Kaczynski sounds about right.

Kentucky Governor Frees Some Non-Violent Inmates

And you cannot make this stuff up:

“The state is working to manufacture PPE, according to the governor, but the process is somewhat hindered by intellectual property constraints.”

Ain’t it funny how cops, DAs, judges and other government employees don’t worry one bit about shooting citizens in the head for fun, but are terrified that they’ll someday get sued over making or allowing the making of plastic gowns and goggles?

Why not just go ahead and then cry “furtive!” “waistband!” when the judges come calling later on?

Hospitals Say Feds Are Seizing Masks and Other Coronavirus Supplies

L.A. Times:

“Although President Trump has directed states and hospitals to secure what supplies they can, the federal government is quietly seizing orders, leaving medical providers across the country in the dark about where the material is going and how they can get what they need to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

“Hospital and clinic officials in seven states described the seizures in interviews over the past week. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is not publicly reporting the acquisitions, despite the outlay of millions of dollars of taxpayer money, nor has the administration detailed how it decides which supplies to seize and where to reroute them. …

“The medical leaders on the front lines of the fight to control the coronavirus and keep patients alive say they are grasping for explanations. “We can’t get any answers,” said a California hospital official who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation from the White House.

“In Florida, a large medical system saw an order for thermometers taken away. And officials at a system in Massachusetts were unable to determine where its order of masks went.

“Are they stockpiling this stuff? Are they distributing it? We don’t know,” one official said. “And are we going to ever get any of it back if we need supplies? It would be nice to know these things.”

Is this PPE they’re stealing from American hospitals the same stuff they’re turning over to the Israeli army instead? It’s all fungible, so same difference anyway.

4/3/20 Jason Ditz on Iraq, Yemen, and Venezuela

Jason Ditz talks about escalating tensions in Iraq, the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and the murmurings of another attempt by the U.S. to put Juan Guaido in power in Venezuela. Scott and Ditz are stunned that America keeps making the same foreign policy mistakes over and over again. Scott sees a real opportunity for a politician like Bernie Sanders to make these topics a leading issue, given that nobody else talks about them and that the American people, when asked, are mostly on the right side. Voters simply do not want to be spending tax money to kill foreigners and prop up murderous regimes while they have plenty of their own problems at home.

From the Free Thought Project: WATCH: Cops Violate Social Distancing to Arrest Innocent Dad for Playing in a Park with 6yo Daughter

Brighton, CO — Over the weekend, Matt Mooney, his wife, and their 6-year-old daughter were playing t-ball at an empty park when a half dozen cops showed up and kidnapped Mooney. The family was not in violation of any law, were obeying social distancing mandates, and had harmed absolutely no one.

Mooney tells TFTP that the city issued an order that all parks were closed during the COVID-19 shutdown. However, the open spaces at the parks were still accessible as long as certain rules were followed. In fact, the sign at the park at which Mooney and his family were playing read as follows: “Closed” but just below that part, the sign reads, “in groups of no more than 4 persons, parks remain open for walking, hiking, biking, running and similar activities.”

Mooney was in a group of three and violated none of the park’s or city’s rules. The only people violating the social distancing guidelines were the cops who showed up to arrest him.
