This kind of useless miss-the-point stuff really grinds my gears. Nobody asked Trump to save us/them. Forget that, it's the kind of shit I hear from the Hannity clones around me. Trump doesn't have the power to save anyone, but he does have—and used—the power to cause much of America's system to drag its feet. Governors were worried, but kind of looked at each other and shrugged, "no problem, I guess." At lower levels, our school admin was waiting for word from the state, or at least to coordinate with other districts to keep the bureaucratic nightmare to a minimum. The state Superintendent, who I like quite a bit, was meeting with the governor to coordinate her response, but our governor is a Republican who won the primary over some hard-right zealots only because a lot of Democrats switched parties to vote him in. So those hard-right people would have destroyed him if he got out of step with the President* (despite the urgency: Colorado's outbreak was in full bloom). So our state sat and waited for someone to get serious. No one here wanted the government to save them. We all wanted the government to just acknowledge the truth and let people get the ball rolling.
 
 
* this is not to say that his inaction was politically motivated, but his opponent is making headlines and generally stirring up shit and being counterproductive. If the Governor had blazed his own trail, the opponent's words would gain traction and probably bring any recovery/mitigation effort to a grinding halt. As it is, too little too late, the policies he does enact are being adhered to, and the opponent is just a buzzing fly.

In case you missed it:

Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg News: Federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted under Obama and never restocked


https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/los-angeles-times-and-bloomberg-news-federal-stockpile-of-n95-masks-was-depleted-under-obama-and-never-restocked



The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times.


Thanks Donnie ?

Mardi Gras was a tough call. But there was no excuse for DeSantis keeping the beaches open for Spring Break Viral Camp.
 

Re: Mardi Gras, what did we know about this, in the US, in the days before February25th? Enough to cancel it? Nope.
It was still considered a foreign problem (although I speculate that it was already here and we were testing sick folks for influenza A&B and reassuring them that it was something else).

So, no shame in having the Mardi Gras. Just like so many people that were still going to Disneyland/World and the parks and visiting relatives and friends. It just wasn't widespread, plus, any mention of it was colorized on FOXFakeNews to make it seem like it was a plot to make Trump look worse. And a President who downplayed it as going to miraculously disappear.

So where does shame belong? Who leads the people? Or does he not, and then WTF is he doing up there instead of having a real well-informed, clear-headed leader that the nation needs in times of crisis?

But I digress.. (Politics is a hobby, but healthcare is my life's work. This means something to me, and Trump has fucked us over bad. It's not murder, as some have said, but tantamount to manslaughter that he's done this to the nation.)
 
I am sorry, but, this makes no sense, Trump is an idiot blah, blah, blah who doesn't know that?  But we all have to take some responsibility here, I think there is shame in having Mardi Gras. Is Fox news your only source of information?  Do you need the President and the government to tell you when to wipe your butt?  I am sorry, this is just ridiculous. The only way we are going to come out of this reasonably well on the other end is for us to take personal responsibility and each of us do the right thing.  You hate Trump, he is awful, I get it, that is ok get it out if you like, but remember we all still have to get ourselves together and do the right thing.  Government or Jesus or whatever is not going to save us, only we can.

Why Taiwan has become a problem for WHO

...
WHO membership is only given to countries that are members of the United Nations - which does not recognise Taiwan - or whose applications are approved by the World Health Assembly.

What this means is that Taiwan has been excluded from emergency meetings and important global expert briefings on the coronavirus pandemic. Taiwanese official Stanley Kao has also said the island has been denied permission to attend the World Health Assembly's annual meetings in recent years.

...

It also means the WHO lists Taiwan's coronavirus statistics together with China's, a move Mr Kao says denies the world of accurate and timely information on the pandemic.

The exclusion, coupled with the WHO's repeated praise of China's response to the outbreak - which public health experts have criticised - has led some to accuse the organisation of political bias towards China, a major contributor to the organisation.

No wonder the US still doesn't have processes to build, distribute, and pay for ventilators.

Very nice indeed !

brooks brothers is owned lock stock and barrel by Luxottica Group.  The largest eyeglass frame maker in the world.  They are an Italian outfit based in Milan.  Perhaps inspired by events in their own backyard.
