Interesting sight - social distancing into the parking lot. UPS store.

I just had to run an errand. Driving past a strip mall I see a couple people in the parking lot.

I see someone just inside the doorway of a UPS store....then a guy more than 6 feet back...then another guy a good 8 feet behind him...and another guy waiting another 6-8 feet back

Couldn't take a picture.

Yeah! What....what she said! 🤬 😆

😆 A little bonuses for stopping by

Hold it. GM no longer even OWNS the Ohio plant Trump was screaming about?

Sorry, I'm a little late to the disaster. I've been busy.

GM’s Ventilator Effort Goes Haywire With Trump Turning on Barra

General Motors Co. and ventilator maker Ventec Life Systems Inc. had much of what they needed in place to ramp up production of breathing machines that would help coronavirus patients survive and recover. They were just waiting on the Trump administration to place orders and cut checks.

And then, just as frustration was mounting within the largest U.S. carmaker and its partner over the federal government finalizing the details, President Donald Trump went on the attack Friday. He accused the company of moving too slowly and charging too much, specifically criticizing Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra.

He called on GM to open an assembly plant in Ohio that it no longer owns and make the devices there immediately.


He tweeted about just last year!!!!

LMAO. It's Satan's math!

Trump team failed to follow NSC's pandemic playbook

I looked but didn’t see this anywhere


The 69-page document, finished in 2016, provided a step by step list of priorities – which were then ignored by the administration

But according to a previously unrevealed White House playbook, the government should’ve begun a federal-wide effort to procure that personal protective equipment at least two months ago.

“Is there sufficient personal protective equipment for healthcare workers who are providing medical care?” the playbook instructs its readers, as one early decision that officials should address when facing a potential pandemic. “If YES: What are the triggers to signal exhaustion of supplies? Are additional supplies available? If NO: Should the Strategic National Stockpile release PPE to states?”

The NSC devised the guide — officially called the Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents, but known colloquially as “the pandemic playbook” — across 2016. The project was driven by career civil servants as well as political appointees, aware that global leaders had initially fumbled their response to the 2014-2015 spread of Ebola and wanting to be sure that the next response to an epidemic was better handled.

An NSC official confirmed the existence of the playbook but dismissed its value. “We are aware of the document, although it’s quite dated and has been superseded by strategic and operational biodefense policies published since,” the official said. “The plan we are executing now is a better fit, more detailed, and applies the relevant lessons learned from the playbook and the most recent Ebola epidemic in the [Democratic Republic of the Congo] to COVID-19.”

Erin Burnett CNN looks ...um... rough

My daughter even commented on it “She looks bad”

Just saying.

She's standing off stage left

Trump took full credit for the stimulus bill. Has it actually passed yet.

Have you seen a drive-through testing area?

This is out of curiosity not to make a political point.

Walmart's? Targets?

I see footage of them on TV but I'm not getting out much.

Honey!......I'm home!
