Hand sanitizer is nice, but not a priority like disinfectant wipes. Hmm

My pharmacist keeps wipes and sanitizer in stock somehow, just a few of each, I think he stocked up early and panic shoppers don't go to his place. When no one else had water he had piles of it for cheap. It's a tiny little store in the quarters and he's a tiny little African man named Ugubu. I love going there instead of the big chain places.

Yes, we have plenty of hand sanitizers but just a small amount of disinfectant wipes.

Trump then traveled to a Ford plant in Michigan on Thursday and offered this explanation for the failure of the privately-owned dams: “Perhaps there was a mistake.”

What happened in Michigan this week was no mistake: Infrastructure was privatized for profit — and it’s crumbling



---Perhaps there was a mistake?
Hell yes, there was a mistake, and the mistake is, privatizing vast swaths of public infrastructure for profit.
People like to pretend that government "can't do anything right" but the one thing government does not do is cut safety regulations and procedures in order to squeeze a few dollars into stockholder pockets while ignoring risks to the public that grow at an exponential rate.

Externalization of indirect costs = bigger profits!

Nope.
Trump will just declare them all immune by EO, or so he thinks.

If the State of Michigan holds the operators of the privately operated dams accountable it will be the insurance companies that will take a hit. Trump is not going to grant them immunity.

Trump also doesn't give a flying f*ck about the operators of the dams.
They aren't going to buy arms like Saudi Arabia or millions of tons of soy beans and corn. They don't have the kind of moxie to produce the kickbacks and bribes Trump is interested in. Just some small time Michigan businessmen.

It will go to court, insurance companies will shell out millions and we won't hear another word about it.
