  1. They actually do this in Florida in nightclubs that allow 18-21 years olds in. They were a different color wristband that brands them as under 21 and unable to drink.
  2. There is a Fed bill in the works to suspend the foreign port requirement of the PVSA for Alaska cruises up to Feb of 2022. If this bill passes, would the CSO be void for Alaska as there is no longer any state to state travel, but is strictly intrastate?
  3. Yeah, I see they did argue that point. My bad for not reading the whole thing and just the news articles.
  4. 264 deals more with property and animals, but same argument holds. §264. Regulations to control communicable diseases (a) Promulgation and enforcement by Surgeon General The Surgeon General, with the approval of the Secretary, is authorized to make and enforce such regulations as in his judgment are necessary to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the States or possessions, or from one State or possession into any other State or possession. For purposes of carrying out and enforcing such regulations, t
  5. I am not a lawyer, but do spend some time dealing with federal regulations. I cannot figure out why the states that filed the lawsuit did not question the authority of the CDC to continue the no sail order based upon the statutes used to grant the CDC the ability to issue the no sail order. 42 U.S.C.United States Code, 2011 EditionTitle 42 - THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARECHAPTER 6A - PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICESUBCHAPTER II - GENERAL POWERS AND DUTIESPart G - Quarantine and InspectionSec. 265 - Suspension of entries and imports from designated places to prevent spread of communicable dise
  6. Please do a little research looking in to having the vaccine for your wife. There apparently is some data suggesting the MRNA vaccines provide relief for long haulers. Not everyone, but somewhere north of 50% last I saw. Covid did a pretty good number on my wife last year. She had the fever/chills side effects from both does of Moderna, I only had slight effects from second shot.
  7. The only time turkey and Bacon should be used in the same sentence is when you are wrapping your turkey in bacon
  8. Just google excess deaths US 2020. Pick you preferred news source. Data will be from death certificates submitted to CDC. Pick any other year. Other years will show spikes from bad flu seasons, etc.
  9. Weekly deaths above and below normal since March 15, 2020 United States March 15 – Feb. 20 REPORTED COVID-19 DEATHS 497,343 TOTAL EXCESS DEATHS 574,300 TOTAL ABOVE NORMAL 21% Here ya go
  10. To the best of my knowledge ships are foreign flagged because they have to be. They cannot be US flagged unless they are built by a US shipyard, amongst other requirements. I am sure the argument can be made that they are built in foreign shipyards to lower cost, but consideration must also be given to the number of US shipyards capable of building a cruise ship.
  11. I had been watching it just for the 100 shares for OBC. Picked up 100 at 8.01 and then another hundred at 7.92. Sold off 100 at 14.50 or so. Figure my hundred shares for OBC cost me $150.
  12. My understanding was they dropped the amount of equity (stock) being offered from 1.25 or 1.5 billion to 500 million and increased the bond sale amount due to the huge interest in purchasing the bond issue. Bond issue was originally 3 billion at 12.5% coupon, had over 17 billion in inquiries. So they upped the bond issue to 4 billion at 12%, and sold less equities. I saw it as an opportunity to pick up 100 share for OBC (dividends will be canceled for a while) at 8.01 a share. Grabbed another 100 shares a few hours later at 7.92. Will sell those at some point:).
  13. Dumped some play money into an online brokerage about 3 weeks ago just waiting to see if CCL dropped low enough to be worth buying it for OBC/dividends. Obviously dividends are going away for a while. Picked up 100 shares at 8.01, and another 100 at 7.92. Gives me some to sell off later, and if they go bankrupt it won't hurt too bad.
  14. I am not worried about sanitizing the thongs in the buffet line. My wife won't let me touch them regardless.
  15. The map on my itinerary for my June 7 roundtrip seattle does not even show the ports in the correct order. I have no faith in the accuracy of the map on the itinerary page.
