    Basically, FU** China. Any society that regards boiling dogs alive, spewing pollution by the metric tons, and eating bats in an open sewer market is not human. The Chinese culture has LONG been a disgusting sub-human existence. Why in the hell does the civilized western society bow down to these disgusting, pathetic, abhorent, Neandertholistic dirt bags?

    This so-called society had killed millions of its own citizens for decades...neh, millenia, as well as pushing out billions of tons of worthless crap on the open market at slave labor prices and substandard regulations. WTF is WRONG with you, America?

    And yet, our corporate and government greaseballs bow down to the dung out of Beijing. Why? $$$$$$. Pure and simple.

    China owns 1.1 Trillon Dollars worth of US Treasury Notes which aren't a loan but if they were to dump them it may screw up our Treasury?

    We're already running $23T deficit. What's another $1T? Seriously, time to tell China the gig is up. We'll buy back the debt and bring the supply chain and manufacturing back to US. Remember, USMCA? Between USMCA and our western Europe folks, we could, neh MUST, form a uber powerful alliance that woudl flippin' crush Beijing.

    Nothing would make me happier than watch that third world, third rate, third class pit of a government get obliterated...without firing a shot. Just as we did to USSR.

    Problem solved...

    Owen,

    Last week I finally ordered a new pellet stove ignitor, Google pulls up several vendors.

    One vendor says "Made in USA" end of search for me, ordered it.

    During this unprecedented shutdown - this is the "perfect storm" for bringing the production back to our hemisphere.

    Once we kick the "Chinese virus" outta here, there will be a lot of unemployment with old jobs being gone.

    Let's use the time and monies to bring 90% production home to us and our neighbors.

    The list of ICAS airshows around the US and Canada that have either cancelled or been postponed is getting longer by the day. Now stands at around 60 total, including many shows in August, September and October.

    Nothing confirmed RE: PRS but I can say it is being looked at very hard and decisions are imminent.

    So far, none of my shows have been cancelled but suspect April may well be drop-dead time. When you think about it from a major sponsors perspective, I may be very difficult to justify spending tens of thousands of dollar on sponsorship while at the same time you have hundreds of employees either laid-off, furloughed, and struggling to get back on their feet.

    It's going to be a very different summer for everyone...everywhere.

    Or maybe that's how you get back to work - stimulate the demand. In the just-past strong economy, my employer (a major airline) really didn't need to sell, load factors were very high no matter the sales effort. We're going to have to relearn how to sell in order to get out of this hole.

    Just my opinion, of course, but sitting back spouting "woe-is-me" isn't the solution.

    It will be a rough years even if the races do go off as scheduled. A lot of the racers will end up not having the $$ or the time off to come race this year. I expect the total entry list to be down a minimum of 20% or so compared to last year. Obviously some classes will be affected more than others.
