    Here's a bunch of broken ventilators. You better be thankful.

    By definition, anyone not agreeing with Trump and/or kissing his ass, is acting shitting according to him. So holding him accountable, is acting shitty. Asking for more supplies and not being thankful Trump had someone send you way less than you need is shitty. Trump says its a war, he's a wartime President. Than act like it. If a foreign country attacked NY, would Trumps say Coumo needs to deal with it, he's the back up? It's absurd. States bidding against states for equipment? This isn't an Aprrentice competition. This is just insane.

    Who you voted for shouldn't determine if you live or die. The Electoral College shouldn't determine who gets all the supplies they need, who gets more than they ask for, and who gets nowhere near what they need. They are putting health care workers jobs on the line by playing politics and kissing someone's ass. This isn' a reality show competition, it's acually real.

    it's amazing they are willing to print as much money as they will need, but cut a pandemic team because it's considered wasteful spending.

    I saw a political cartoon that said on this week's episode of The Apprentice/Governors, you will be playing for ventilators.

    The IRS has told Congress that some people won't be getting their stimulus checks for 5 months.

    And the other thing is people are going to be dying from other crap. But because the ERs and intensive cares are so taxed, they will not get the immediate care they needed to survive. So while heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, gunshot, stabbing... might be the cause of death, COVID 19 may be the real cause.,

    I don't even get what is going on now. Why is the market up today? 6.6 million jobless claims. That's 10 million in 2 weeks. Using that number there is currently a 9.5% unemployment rate. At the peak of the Great Recession, it was 10%. People are losing their insurance, and it isn't gettng better next week. When they get sick, what is going to happen? There are many who don't qualify for medicaid, and don't have the means for COBRA. Why aren't they opening up Obamacare other than political reasons? Apparently people are betting on a fast bounce back, but we have no idea when this ends. Probably at least a month or two after the administrations worst case scenerio, and if you look at China, while their economy is bouncing back, it's bouncing back very slowly. No one has a stimulus check, and that $1200 or so will be gone almost immediately. The small business loans don't even start until tomorrow. How long is it going to take for them to process all of the unemployment claims? And more and more people keep getting sick and dying.

    If it was empty, they had 3 years to replenish. I don;t know why they are never asked about it.

    RIP Ed Farmer

    I met Farmio in the elevator at the park. He initiated a conversion and seemed a very nice man who was very interested in what you had to say. RIP. For guy who played for, scouted for and broadcast for the White Sox, it's interesting to note, except when he was in uniform, he never wore socks.

    Coumo said this may go on into July.

    My CVS yesterday had a sign up that they were out of everything you would be looking for during this pandemic. Kind of surprised me because most places have had most things except masks for the last week or so.

    And while JB has been pretty good, he basically was forced to close the bars after they were packed the Saturday before Saint Patrick's Day.

    It was obvious enough that the president called it the next democratic hoax. Would have been nice if there was a pandemic team. And blaming the system as obsolete, this administration was in powef for 3 years prior, and didn't do anything until the horse was out of the barn. Why do they try to blame previous administrations?

    Supposedly the Surgeon General just told him to issue a Stay at Home order.
