Great news for those guys in Texas, but really how many helmet ventilators can they make and get to ICUs in two weeks? Because that's when their ventilator stock gets depleted in Texas (and every nearby state where people went to Mardi Gras).

Different topic:
We need those antibody tests and we need them right now, by the millions. Here's why: People with antibodies who have had no symptoms or recovered a few weeks from mild symptoms can go back to work, getting a start on reviving the economy and filling in for all the people sick or in quarantine. They can also donate antibodies to give besieged health care workers some protection. Blood banks need to start offering those with antibodies a suitable bounty ($500?) for donating one unit of blood. If they test and then centrifuge that blood, it is very easy to separate out the plasma from the red cells. They desperately need the red cells for transfusions, but they can also purify Covid-19 antiserum from the plasma. This antiserum can give passive immunity to people that receive it. In particular, health care workers who are inevitably going to be exposed at work. You don't have to give it to health care workers who already have antibodies, which is another reason we need those tests.

At what point will someone file a suit against one of the Gov's, who refuse to issue stay in place edits, for negligent homicide?

Hilarious BS: Trump and all his cronies are claiming his response to Covid-19 was delayed by impeachment.

Problem is that he was acquitted by the Senate on February 5th. February 11th it got named Covid-19 by WHO. February 29th saw America's first recorded corona virus death. All that time he was holding rallies and playing golf like mad. Obviously, it wasn't impeachment that "distracted" him. It was his busy entertainment schedule.

At the same time, and right up until last week, he was denying it existed, claiming it was a Democratic plot to bring him down, claiming it was like flu, telling staff not to talk to governors who failed to kiss his butt, etc. This wasn't about distraction. This was denial of the facts every expert was telling him. This is the heavy price America has to pay for electing a totally unfit liar as President.

Now they are claiming that there was actually nothing to reply to as there is no evidence that there was any Covid-19. Basically, Trump was neither ignorant OR late with his response.

Now he has nothing left but "the Devil made me do it". If that one doesn't fly I wonder if there are any bets out there about what the next lie that explains Trump Gross Incompetence is going to be?

Oh, Fauci was in on that one which was almost interesting. This would mean that trump sent 150 tons of medical 'stuff' to China just for the hell of it as nothing was going on there.

I starts to get almost interesting when they can't even keep their lies straight.

They have never been able to keep their lies straight. It's like the defense attorney who I heard claim mistaken identity and "the victim's statement is not what actually happened" in two sentences, one right after the other! The jury was supposed to believe one or the other I suppose, since both could not exist together. It was almost like he said: "Okay, now I'm going to tell you a lie," and then proceeded with his summation. We convicted.

Engineer Arrested For Derailing Train Near USNS Mercy -- Claimed Ship Part Of ‘Government Takeover’

Quote:
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A train engineer at the Port of Los Angeles was arrested Wednesday
for allegedly derailing a locomotive at full speed near the USNS Mercy hospital ship being used to ease hospital beds during the coronavirus pandemic.

During an initial interview with port police, prosecutors say Moreno admitted crashing the train, saying he was suspicious of the Mercy and believed it had an alternate purpose related to COVID-19, such as a “government takeover”.


---Three guesses as to this lunatic's political alignment.

Heh. "Alignment". His head is out of alignment. We used to call that, "a head space and timing problem" when the weapon didn't fire.

Kind of like the nutcases threatening Dr Fauchi's life for telling us actual facts that don't agree with Trump's wish-list. I think we need to round these guys up and fulfill their fantasy by locking them away where they can't harm anybody. We need that involuntary commitment law back. Not all the nutcases are harmless. In particular, I would interview everybody who rushed out to be guns before the pandemic.

Then there are all the people attacking Asians or people wearing masks. Do you think maybe somebody should explain that if you think somebody has Covid-19 you need to stay 10 feet away from them? Not punch them in the face. That's a sure way to get it. And also that masks are to keep the mask wearer from spreading his infection? He is doing you a favor! They are not great at saving you from getting it, if you are wearing one.

OK ... it struck me a little uneasily when DNC pushed convention and states are talking about postponing primaries ... what if Mr Trump decides to postpone election due to the unsafe conditions of voting? or what if he "allows" the election and he wins because people are afraid to vote in unsafe conditions? What if ...

just spitballing because we have an unstable person at the helm

The primaries scheduled for 4 Apr have been cancelled by their governor and push backed to sometime in June. Wisconsin scheduled primary on the 7th is still a go last I heard with Wisconsin's governor calling out the National Guard to serve as poll watchers.

Trump has refused to cancel the Republican Convention as of yet and is being hit hard by Democrats for not doing so. Although the Democrats have rescheduled their for 17-20 August instead of in July. The GOP convention is scheduled for 24-27 August.

I do think it premature to be talking about cancelling or rescheduling the November general elections at this time. I think the best thing is to give this time to see what exactly is happening as we get closer to the remaining primaries and the convention along with the general election.

What if's rarely happen. But if it does, time will tell. As for the remaining primaries, cancelling them wouldn't change who's going to win the nomination. Biden is 300 delegates ahead and is leading in every remaining state poll in the states that haven't held their primary yet. With the proportional system of awarding delegates, Biden 300 delegate lead might as well be 3,000. Sanders would need to win every primary with 65% of the vote the rest of the way to beat Biden and that isn't about to happen.

As for the conventions, they're just a media show case with everything decided by the time they convene. The general is 7 months away, give it time and we'll see what the situation is in four or five months and go from there.
