Re: Global slow down...

If the US bails out the cruise ship industry with our tax money in this bill they should give every American a free cruise but most after the virus cruises will probably turn down this offer :lol:

Re: Global slow down...

I heard New York fire fighters even sick if not bad will
still have to work due to they need every one on deck since they are overwhelmed by this virus. If true I hope protective gear stops them from spreading it to the people there trying to help.

Re: Global slow down...

Just used his own words the truth hurts. It’s like in the military you let the enemy have two months to attack and not do shit even though you knew about it you just did not believe in the intel. So you loose the war because of incompetence even when you had a 2 month warning. Hopefully we don’t tur...

Re: Global slow down...

Went to Costco a few days ago they had some one wipe down the handles of the shopping carts as you enter the store. Are they doing that at your local Costco ? I guess so some don’t spread this virus.

Re: Global slow down...
