...because some people still need their male enhancement pills? Also to get drunk to avoid withdrawal?

With all those prisoners and companies making hand sanitizer, how come I can't find it anywhere?

His and Hers hand sanitizer?

Because people are too stubborn/stupid to maintain distancing.


That's about it.  Companies have to maintain distance or get shut down.  Parks not so much.

Jimmy Buffet made truckloads of cash with lyrics like "why don't we get drunk and screw" and not "let's stroll through the park".

Note: DO NOT confuse the two.

It is stupid as hell to close most parks.

An open park does mean an automatic trump pro virus rally.

That's actually a part of it. If people go into withdrawal, they take up hospital resources. Avoiding that frees up beds.

Because it's going into the White House stockpile, where it will be labeled with a 'Courtesy of Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America' before it is sent out to people.

Looks like you were giving the President a hand-job.

Sex shops are open to encourage the use of safe toys and keep ER beds free.

"Haltom said he was also able to get protective masks from China and he sold 10,000 in one week.  He said, "I paid 60 cents a mask.  It cost me 7 cents apiece to have them air freighted in from China and then I sold them for 50 dollars for a box (of 50)."   He added, "I'm not making any money on the masks."

67 cents, selling them for a dollar... I mean, I think the point he is trying to make is he isn't price gouging, and certainly there are some overhead prices not included in his prices but it looks like he has made $3300 in one week on mask sales (minus overhead).

I can't speak for the adult shops, but in Michigan people were complaining about the party/liquor stores being open and considered essential, and there's a good reason for it.

In Detroit and other cities, there are no grocery stores. The only place residents can go to get a few grocery items without needing to get on a bus or drive to another town is at a local convenience/liqour/party store. That's all there is in the city. Corner stores that sell booze, lottery, cigarettes, vapes, and some overpriced food items like chips, bread, dairy, canned goods, cereal, etc.

So if the state had ordered those stores to close in the lockdown, then the people of Detroit and other cities would have been without a source for groceries.

And they couldn't just shut them down in the rural areas and leave them open in the cities or the rednecks would have had a farking fit over that, too.

Because it's not a weekend for a St. Louisian with a case of Bud Light and some porno, and since they're all still running VHS and 19" Sony...

Have you been to St. Louis?
With no hockey and no baseball, if we're not drinking, we're jerking off.  Because those are the only other options.
(Forest Park is actually pretty nice, but that involves the Science Center, Zoo, and Art Museum and there's no way you could open those right now)

Hopefully it isn't labeled "astroglide" sanitizer,would be a painful mistake,

But if injecting  Disinfectants can kill Corona virus maybe using a hand sanitizer lubricant can stop STDs

Krispy kreme is open everywhere, if they get by as essential everything can be essential

Stumpy's Distillery in the IL part of the STL area switched over to making hand sanitizer. They gave it away to county residents. I'm hoping to make it through without using it to keep as a memento with a bottle from the last batch they made.

That's 4 masks on only one person. She is taking up valuable resources in the midst of a crisis. I do not approve.
