    The thought just came to me. More than likely a lot of gun websites are going to be shut down as this continues to prevent the sale of guns and ammunition to people where they are not recorded on camera like you see at retail establishments. When that happens, it will be EXTREMELY difficult to find guns or ammo one might want at a "reasonable" price (although it is all too high now).

    FRANKFURT, April 29 (Reuters) - German auto supplier and technology company Robert Bosch on Wednesday said it expects automotive production to fall by at least 20 percent this year, as the coronavirus pandemic slams the brakes on factory production lines and saps demand. "We are bracing ourselves for a global recession that will also have a considerable impact on our own performance in 2020," Bosch CFO Stefan Asenkerschbaumer said in a statement. "Given the many imponderables, we feel unable to make a reasonable forecast for the Bosch Group for the year as a whole. It will take a supreme effort...

Let us hope it recovers before the opening bell.  Prayers are needed for our President, our Republic and the world to quickly recover. I am not so worried about the Coronvirus itself here in the USA, but the economic impact will easily be billions of lost revenue.

    When dangerously high winds arise this year, the utility says it will black out fire-prone areas that are home to 5.4 million people PG&E Corp. can’t prevent its power lines from sparking the kinds of wildfires that have killed scores of Californians. So instead, it plans to pull the plug on a giant swath of the state’s population. No U.S. utility has ever blacked out so many people on purpose. PG&E says it could knock out power to as much as an eighth of the state’s population for as long as five days when dangerously high winds arise. Communities likely...
