    Oh no, seeing He-Man/ Philosopher whooping up on Orville Redenbacher's grandson has changed my beliefs. Does she like latex hip boots?

    Oh my ! Listening to Rush Limbaugh making cornbread with Crisco has altered my thinking. Does he like to wear Florence Henderson's dress ?

    When. Is money worth more then life. Parents sspend their whole life trying to pass on lifes lessons to their children. Break their backs to give them a better life. Then a member says that at 65 their a burden on the economy cuz thre no longer economy useful. No great lose if they pass because of this virus. Sometimes being a realist make you lose your moral compass. Does that help?

    Not a good thing to plot on an exponential graph for 2 more months. Many states are just getting started. Do it your self ventilators kit start-ups in the future

    It's about time we started seeing THAT number coming up.

    For a really long time, the "recovered" and "died" numbers were very close -- because recovery takes quite a while, and death doesn't. Eventually the ratio of those two numbers should correspond to the mortality rate, which should be closer to 1-3%, and hopefully the lower end here in the US.

    Here is a little update on investments in 2020 versus the CPI:

    CPI was down 1.63% (end of February)
    Silver was down 29.4% (3-20-2020)
    S&P was down 28.7% (3-20-2020)
    Dow Jones was down 32.8% (3-20-2020)
    Nasdaq was down 23.3% (3-20-2020)

    Based on my Real Estate ETF, I'm losing 40% on those investments. The bond market has also been hit quite hard over the past couple of weeks but I don't have a number on it. My only positive investments in 2020 are I-bonds, MetLife Stable Value, and money market accounts. I think it may be a good time to buy equities but I thought that when it corrected by 10%.

    Dollar cost average on the way down. Don't dump all available cash into the market at once. As the market continues to fall, systematically invest a percentage of your available funds into the market sector, individual stocks or mutual funds you deem appropriate for your portfolio.
