    Do you think they've started capping the higher cost wells yet? Any idea on that timeline? I figured that last week may have been THE last week before severe closures of industry sectors was necessary. Crude oil production was what I picked for the strongest indicator of the point of no return.
    Yes wells are being shut in...

    Provo traffic was normal for a Sunday. Called my brother—same in Salt Lake. Called Doug—same in northern Utah County. I never thought I’d be glad to see traffic backed up again.

    Utah is DONE with this absurd, elitist time-out that has lingered longer than a fart on prom night.

    I watched The Hunger Games tonight with the family. Couldn’t have been more appropriate portraying these out-of-touch, elitist assholes who get off destroying lives. How many Rues have to die to appease the intellectual’s models?

    Bruno and Lazy—piss off. Math is hard and you don’t understand life, let alone kindergarten arithmetic.

    A political friend sent this article which pretty much sums it all up.

    It is a joke, just not a funny one. I will never understand how anyone can sit here and say this is okay. But there are a lot of things people say that I will never understand.

    I read this several times and I'm at a loss. I am sorry that your grandmother was subjected to that experience.

    I'm referring to both Fauci and Fergusson. Which quotes are you referring to?

    NYC has had 11,000 Covid deaths.

    Tokyo, the World's largest and densest city, has had 93.

    NYC is locked down.

    Tokyo was never locked down.

    Both have had the virus for the same amount of time.

    Why is NYC's death rate 250 times higher than Tokyo's?

    I'm very thankful he passed away later into this pandemic. I'm fine with grandparents dying, but it was nice to be able to see the body and get together with the family. I doubt we could have done that if he died a few weeks earlier.

    Frustrating stuff, but it makes me feel for those people in places with even harsher lockdown regulations who weren't even able to do what my family did.
    The more I look at this, the madder I get. What kind of inhuman sacks of dogshit do this to another human being? "Ve vere only followink ordahs." Subhuman motherfucking scum, more in love with authority than with compassion, honor, decency, and good. It would be wonderful if there actually was a Hell, for the people responsible for this. A reckoning, we promise.

    Things are different now.

    This entire episode has been an alternative version of Heller's Catch-22. The government can never admit to being/doing wrong. To do so would open up the floodgates on questioning the integrity of every decision made by the courts in the past and future, undermining the entire framework. The same can be said for the media. Their assumed role is as forebearers of truth. We accept the biases, but what would we do if they actually admitted to being wrong? Where would we turn to? Dissent would ensue. Anarchy would rear it's head. The wheels have been set and the momentum has been established. To stand up against local government takes a certain amount of fortitude that's uncommon in this day of comfort and convenience. There is nothing to do but let the events run their course.

    This is what the people wanted.

    This shit makes me ashamed I ever wore a badge.

    I cannot fathom how cops today can reconcile the political correctness they are subjected to in not hurting the feelings of anyone and then turn about and become the VoPos surveilleing businesses and fucking with people like this.

    In other news, I understand Harrisburg, IL is getting ready to foment a general mutiny against Gauleiter Pritzker. Harrisburg considers proposal to open up retail in defiance of stay-at-home order | Government and Politics | thesouthern.com

    Robert, did you have quotes from Fauci from his miscalculation of HIV a couple of decades ago?

    I think I wrote this about 50 pages ago, and it got lost in the lazy/Bruno fiasco. A buddy's dad died in NYC, 92yo with COPD, and got covid. Passed away alone in the hospital. None in his family was able to be with him or properly able to say goodbye. If that had happened to me (not allowed to be there when my mom/dad passed), that's something that *I* would not recover from, and that emotional damage and trauma would in fact get passed down to my kids.

    IMO (you guys can talk all the dollars/jobs you want, but) THIS issue is what angers me the most. It is unacceptable on every level.
