The SuperMuseum is located right next door in the town square. The store is operated by super geek Jim Hambrick. If I didn’t have the work appointment later I would have paid for a museum ticket. I will look forward to seeing the museum next time.
There is a 1954 Chevrolet parked in front of the museum that I think represents the famous comic panel showing Superman throwing a 1950’s car.
BB&T closed the Millbrooke branch in Hopkinsville, KY permanently. With the Ft Campbell Blvd branch also closed today. This was the only open branch in town. I closed my checking account because of sheit like this. I still have a mortgage and I would close that too if I could. BB&T does not deserve one dollar of my business. Every customer in this line probably feels the same way.
A tsunami of libertarian action took place in Hopkinsville Kentucky on December 4, 2020 when the Christian County Health Department suspended the food service license for a local restaurant.
The difference between an open tent on guidelines given from the CCHD and tent open 50%, which was said but never showed to us. The excuse the Health Department used is, the flyer is wrong but what I am telling you is right. We called the state health department for guidelines. Which we were directed to do so by our local health department. They had no idea to the references. Neither did building and codes which were referenced to call on the guideline print out that the health department gave to us.

The restaurant followed guidelines as they were written, but that is never good enough. The Governor and HD ask you and your customers to sit in a cold, drafty tent outside in freezing weather we know that no person in their right mind would ever do that. We were surprised though when we came back and found that you still had a few customers left sitting inside of your tent. So that means we have to ratchet the requirements further and tell you that you must have two sides of your tent completely open.
Support your small businesses, support those businesses that are being discriminated against because they don’t belong to a MEGA-CORP restaurant chain.
Especially Support Businesses That Draw a Line and Say….
THIS FAR AND NO FARTHER

This opinion piece was published by the Hoptown Chronicle on June 23, 2020. I read it and thought neither the author nor the contractor were acting rationally. The author lives within an Establishment belief system that probably includes listening to NPR, network or cable news.
In the United States, 122,000 people have died to date from COVID-19 in roughly four months, versus at most half than many from over the course of year from the flu. If facts matter.
A flooring contractor came to our house this week to measure, wearing no mask. Our dialogue went like this: â€œDo you have one?â€ â€œNo.â€ â€œOK. We can reschedule. Will you call?â€ â€œDonâ€™t know. Iâ€™ve been doing this since this nonsense started and I havenâ€™t seen anyone sick yet.â€ â€œThank you, but we have friends who have died and been on ventilators, and we have compromised immune systems in our household.â€ â€œYeah, well, how many of them had underlying issues â€” and (he had a big number) people died from the flu and they didnâ€™t say crap about that.â€

Being self-employed myself I see several problems with this conversation that make it unrealistic. First, I don’t believe any self-employed individual would go to a job site without having a mask available in their vehicle. The contractor can believe that masks are stupid and unnecessary, but if your customer wants you to wear a mask then you wear the mask while your on location. Second, the contractor tries to justify his unpreparedness by challenging the customer in a political argument. Don’t discuss politics with a customer. Who does this?!
The author of this editorial lives in a mainstream news bubble. Which he has a right to believe what he wants to, you can’t cancel me for doing the same thing. The contractor in this story arrived on-site unprepared and the homeowner (his employer) will find another to do the work. Simple, happens everyday with or without COVID-19. Frankly, I don’t believe the author had this conversation with a contractor anyway.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear and state Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack said the virus was unlikely to be the primary factor resulting in the childâ€™s death, but reporting methodologies mandate the case be listed as a coronavirus death. Stack reiterated that most children who contract COVID-19 do not see significant, long-term health damage.
Stack said that if not for the pandemic, the death would have been attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. But the death will be attributed to COVID-19 because the infant tested positive for the virus, which may or may not have contributed to the childâ€™s death, Stack said. The truth may never be known, he added.
It should also be noted that there is a huge increase in compensation the hospital receives for COVID-19 patients versus non-COVID19 patients.
PHASE TWO: Public gatherings at churches, social clubs, and even casual meetings at the local store are natural behaviors that promote social cohesion and unity. That is why Mr. Burns’ plan will mandate the concept of “Social Distancing” the goal being to physically and psychically separate one person from every other person. The Committee will also encourage the use of social media and technology-based forms of interaction because preliminary research indicates it enhances the affect of isolation and loneliness on individuals.
In Phase One fear of an unseen, amorphous enemy (Coronavirus later re-branded to Covid-19) was introduced which The Committee can leverage to direct public suspicion on to any arbitrary group or class of people. The most important group which needs to be undermined immediately will be the skeptics and people who refuse to accept the programming The Committee broadcasts via mainstream news.
Future Control Methods
PHASE THREE: While the Public will be released from their confinement in due time. The Committee will continue directing the safe behaviors necessary after Covid-19 extreme measures have been lifted. Behavior modification that began in Phase one will be monitored by three mechanisms: Vaccination/testing, Contact Tracing, and Safe Citizen reporting.
Mobile contact tracing – Google and Apple have already developed the OS-level framework needed for contact tracing, but each smart phone user will also download a “Safe Citizen” health app. The app will provide the user with a color code Green, Yellow, or Red. Red will mean that the user must immediately self-isolate at home for fourteen days. If sixty percent of the population downloads the app voluntarily it will not become mandatory.
