    Didn’t make me angry.
    Made me chuckle.
    People are so easily triggered, online.
    In person, not so much.

    She bought shit in a store.
    That’s what stores are for.
    Are you really that bothered it?
    Maybe you should get a hobby.
    Just sayin’.

    Paraphrasing some Hong Kong protestor – “China, and ghostniper, is asshoe”.
    Just sayin’

    Small things can have much greater implications. In the statement of this one Chinese woman, she expresses the disdain the Chinese people have for us. I hope if we have learned one thing out of this current COVID-19 thing, that we should sever ALL contacts with China…. economic, trade deals, cultural exchange, diplomatic relations. Let them stew in their own bat guano…. America will do much better without them.

    Here’s a New York City doctor describing the surreal circumstances of a “virus” effecting breathing capacity while every one of his patients are obviously not suffering from pneumonia. Ten minutes long. Very interesting.

  • Rick April 7, 2020, 10:16 AM

    She’s making a very rational choice. She can protect herself and her family and may give them to her circle of friends. Who knows, it is a store after all.

  • Vanderleun April 7, 2020, 10:44 AM

    And she has a store…. after all… an online store focused on shipping goods to Chinese buyers. Perhaps she was going to open a face-mask emporium in Chinese for Chinese….

  • James ONeil April 7, 2020, 12:35 PM

    Just sayin’ Tim, China ain’t the only asshole in the world.

    Ghost made a valid point & the woman’s rather silly. Central Florida? She probably a U of F professor. Buying 3M masks? Made in America. Rather ironically she’s contributing to _our_ economy helping to Make America Great Again.

    Be bothered by her silliness? I’ve many, many, much more earth shattering, game changing, writing this comment, important things to do, like watching paint dry.

  • Paul A'Barge April 7, 2020, 1:00 PM

    Once the news gets out, these guys dance at her fun.

  • John the River April 7, 2020, 2:05 PM

    As a precaution I wear a mask at the store. It’s a mask from a hardware store made for a workshop, dust only. It’s the only one I have and I soak it in rubbing alcohol when I get home and reuse it the next shopping trip. I’ve been looking for N95 masks for a month and a half, can’t find them.
    3M makes it’s masks in China, not here (to the best of my knowledge, I could be wrong).

    This women went out and bought up every mask she could, how did she know that the China Flu was coming? I wonder about that. I agree with Bill Whittle, we need to cut China loose, all ties. It won’t be easy since we have allowed them to (kinda, in a half assed way) manufacture almost everything we need or use.
    This woman isn’t Americanized, she cares nothing for the country or the Americans living here. I’d gather her up, with her hoard of masks, and ship them both back to China; never to return.

  • Casey Klahn April 7, 2020, 3:36 PM

    She’s a bit Wobbly, if you get my meaning.

    Don’t you love how the communists make use of capitalist methods to fuck with regular people? She’s hoarding a critical item, and selling it to her own ChinamN. Or so it seems. She could also be using that website as a cover for just fucking denying Americans of masks.

    There are commie spies in America. It’s that plain and simple. Suspect everyone. I recall years ago at the Bellevue Art Fair a chinese-looking guy with a video camera walking around the fair filming the art. Intellectual property theft; there are entire cities of brush workers making knock-offs of western paintings because: derivation is their culture. They live to steal intellectual property. I got pissed at him and told him to beat it.

    About that time in my life, I roomed with a bunch of guys and gals in a large apartment north of Seattle. One of the gals wanted to host Soviet Russian athletes who were coming to be involved in some international sporting event. She didn’t know that GD near every Russian athlete was a Spetnaz guy. Or probably so – who knows?

    This dipstick gal is scared because she’s doing something wrong. She is filming it because: crainless bunt.

    Now, back up a little. If you read our foremost philosopher on war today, Dr Victor Davis Hansen, you know that wars are as much a result of passions as they are rational or reasoned. China wants to be the hegemon in WestPac. We don’t want them to be. We’d be happy to keep that role, and in that we are not right: we are fucking right. 500% right.

    War with China, if it comes to that (if they make kinetic military moves in the WestPac), is justified. No, conservatives, we cannot mind our own shores. JFC do I need to explain the history of the West to you again? If we don’t stop aggression there it will be knocking on our own doorstep next. ClueBat: we don’t want that.

    However, I am for keeping the passion part under wraps. Be professional but have a plan to kill everyone you see. Race don’t enter into it. It didn’t in the Pacific War (41-45) and it won’t in an upcoming war.

    Right now, our navy looks like a clown parade. The capitol ships are full of gays, female sailors and trannies. And this is a “strength.”

    Shot the shotguns today. Taught a youngun, too.

    And God help me I hope my fears are just paranoia.

  • James ONeil April 7, 2020, 3:44 PM

    For the record, as far as I know, 3M’s N95 masks are made in USA, so says the label on a box of them I have on my shelf.

    No I didn’t just buy them to stop the Chinese virus, my box has a Sept. ’08 manufactured date & has been on my shelf for many years & yes, I was a Boy Scout way back in the day when the Scout Motto meant something.

  • DrTedNelson April 7, 2020, 3:54 PM

    Klahn! And if they’re not unfounded, those shotgun skills will come in handy.

  • captflee April 7, 2020, 4:23 PM

    ghost, Rick, et al;
    Thank you for clearing up what is apparently a profound and longstanding misapprehension on my part. Despite having read Catch 22 numerous times (I found that it made my time in the peacetime Uncle Sam’s Confused Group barely tolerable), I had not realized that Milo was the good guy.

    Regarding the dainty and charming celestial, suffice it to say that I am glad not to be her insurer, and if I dwelt very near her I should be checking with my agent regarding possible spillover from incidents on her property.

    That such activities emanate from our dear, invaluable to us all, Chinese “countryperson” (and I do not discount the presence of her caucasoid compatriot, who may well be a domestic violence engendered Stockholm Syndrome victim) neither triggers nor surprises me. I have been in about as many non-landlocked countries as I have not, so I feel free to state my undying belief that yer bog standard average, mean, or median Chinaperson is more raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist than Bull Connor’s fever dreams, more corrupt than the worst of Nigerian princes, and more obnoxiously grasping than an Indian Customs agent.

    That said, I bear that average Chinaman no more ill will than he does me. Being the bigger man, I’ll even agree to be 0.00000000000000001% more tolerant than he (not that I am taller than all; when reflagging my last ship over from Norwegian second flag I relieved a Filipino passported near seven footer, albeit one with a Chinese name and one of those catcher’s mitt visages usually seen near the Yalu). Not that even the squareheads, usually very eager to seek a sub-bargain basement crew, had then booted the usual mixed 4th world crews, largely Filipino, for far cheaper Chinese, from whom the prudent mariner is well advised to bear off smartly and pass well clear.

    I think the 12 ga pump shotgun is the most versatile gun ever created. If I could have only 1 gun it would be my Remington 870 Marine Magnum. To shoot a 12ga properly you have to understand it’s not like any other type of gun. It is 100% raw power and it will kick your ass sideways until you learn how to tame it. Mine was stock when I bought it brand new about 16 years ago. It came in a cheap plano case, with a cheap ballistic nylon sling, and a magazine extension to hold 7 rounds.

    Last year I installed the (black) Magpul stock and fore end on it. I 6 rd sidesaddle and top rail with new, longer trigger pins. An aluminum magazine follower and a 3 point sling Just last week I installed a red/green reflex site on a 1/2″ quick detach riser. Wow. Instant target detection – red dot don’t lie.

    It takes practice, but you use the recoil from the shot to rack the next round into the chamber. Over and over til your dump bag is empty. I’ve done 40 rds in a row like that, while slowly walking forward. No shoulder problem the next day because the recoil is being redirected back into loading the next round. Takes practice to get used to it and kick that old hurtful habit to the curb.

    Because it’s a shotgun the bad guys can’t count your rounds and know when you’re empty so you never move the barrel away from them. Learn how to feed a round directly into the open chamber over the top with your left hand. Or, with your last round in the chamber, feed more rounds into the mag from the bottom with the left hand. Thats why the side saddle is on the left side of the gun. Dremel the sharp edge off the feed ramp to the magazine. 12ga shotgun is your best friend.

    Ship the commie bitch back to Wuhan. Crapitolism selling the commies the rope to hang us.

  • Rick April 7, 2020, 6:30 PM

    How is what she’s doing different than what the store was doing? How is it different than Home Depot or Walmart? Would it be different if she was a blonde American? The biggest reason we can’t buy TP is because “we” went in the stores and filled our carts with it, just like she did. My wife and I made a lot of money on eBay years ago by going into stores and buying up every deal we could find that we could resell for a profit. We didn’t care what the merchandise was, we just wanted to profit from it. Buying up things that are available is part of the tragedy of the commons.

  • Gordon Scott April 7, 2020, 7:00 PM

    What y’all must not have seen is the part of Bill Whittle’s video where he showed the employees of Greenland, a Chinese real estate firm operating in Australia, cleaning a store out of PPE supplies. Sales were restricted per person, so these folks would grab the limit, run it through the self checkout, then run outside and add it to the (rather large) cache.

    Greenland employees, right down to the receptionists, were buying everything they could get, online and in person, and shipping it to China.

    That’s the prelude to the red lipstick Chinagirl..

  • Gordon Scott April 7, 2020, 7:02 PM

    Sorry, I meant to write that these folks would run out of the store (and I do mean run) and deposit their purchase in the pile. Then they would run back in for another round. They were hiding their faces.

  • buddhaha April 7, 2020, 9:18 PM

    I know that my gut reaction to the first video and the Australian story is “how can they do that?”

    Then I remember from my experience two facts.

    First: The concept that racism is a negative virtue is completely at odds with Asian culture. The Koreans think of the Chinese as a lesser species and the Japanese as viscous animals. The Japanese are so xenophobic that they allow less than 100 immigrants into the country per year, so as to not pollute their culture. The translation of the Chinese phrase “Middle Kingdom” is misleading; a closer version would be “Center-of-the-Universe Kingdom”. The woman buying the masks is not atypical, she can’t conceive that anyone not Chinese would deserve getting anything until Chinese desires are fulfilled.

    Second: First, and sometimes second, generation immigrants from poorer countries can be selfish, because that was sometimes the difference between eating and not. I’ve seen this in Greek neighbors, and in my wife’s family (Grandparents from The Old Country). It produces suspicions bordering paranoia and the cheerful disregard for the result of their actions on everyone else, as seen in the mask purchaser.

    This attitude, combined with realpolitik, explains both China’s actions and the need to keep them at arm’s length.

    As Guy Clark said, there ain’t no money in poetry, and that’s what sets the poet free:

    Which is why I remark,
    And my language is plain,
    That for ways that are dark
    And for tricks that are vain,
    The heathen Chinee is peculiar, —
    Which the same I am free to maintain.
    Francis Bret Harte

    There’s a thing in the sidebar to your right says never trust someone who isn’t kind to animals. All you gotta do to understand the quality of their humanity and the depth of their racism is to lookit how they treat POW’s and other prisoners. The Japanese in WWII, Chinese in WWII and Korea, not to mention what they do to anyone who steps out of line, the North Koreans pretty much forever, the North Vietnamese, they all suck at it. POW’s et al are animals to that lot, and anyone who would think they lookit any western country any differently is insane, delusional and very, very stupid.

    Bottom line, they don’t give two shits about their own people, what would make anyone imagine that they care about anyone else, like us?

  • ghostsniper April 8, 2020, 4:43 AM

    Alfred Hitchcock was the master of subtlety and rarely did you see violence or horror in his shows. Hitch knew that the human mind was the greatest screenwriter and set up each scene so the viewer could provide their own horrifying content. This current post provides an example in that a small video is shown with no explanation of the content – just raw footage. Then, a list is created by the viewers of every devious thing they can imagine, made up entirely of whole cloth. Not only does the solitary subject of the vid need to be eviscerated but the whole continent she is from must be glassed. To me, there was always a let down feeling at the end of the Hitchcock series episodes – as if they were stopped too short. I guess the viewer is to supply the ending too.

  • Gordon Scott April 8, 2020, 11:44 AM

    Yeah, Ghost, do point out where the commenters wrote that we should nuke China, will ya?

  • James ONeil April 8, 2020, 12:24 PM

    Looks like my guess that she’s a U of F Prof in Gainesville was way off, seems she’s over near Tampa.

  • Fletcher Christian April 8, 2020, 2:54 PM

    Suggesting the nuking of China is downright ridiculous, for many reasons. 1) we would get some back – and we would care a lot more about the megadeaths than they would. 2) Chinese governments, all the way back to before the birth of Christ, have never cared about casualties. 3) It’s literally impossible to do enough nuking to make much difference to China without a) causing a nuclear winter with associated fallout and/or b) running out of bombs.

    This is in sharp contrast to the other hostis humani generis, in the approximate position of Mordor both geographically and philosophically; that one has two or three absolutely crucial sites. We are approximately 19 years late in appropriately responding to 9/11, but it still could be done – and should be.
