It's called the pursuit of happiness, we got a right to it, read that somewhere....

Don’t forget, Nipkow and other Trumpites are all for Donald Trump’s shredding of the constitution and our laws.  Although that has taken a back seat at the moment as Trump’s incompetence and narcissism shreds American families with his criminal response to the covid -19 pandemic.

I guess it's because I'm not glued to the news outlets 24/7,  I only mostly hear about the situation here in the U.S., Italy, Spain and a bit about England, but....

How are they faring in RUSSIA?  Aren't there ANY cases there?  Or in the MIDDLE EAST?  And if not, WHY not?  ;)

Deborah Birx, a White House coronavirus task force official, praised Trump as “attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data.” Nope.

Well we still have a Reputable Medical Authority in Dr. Fauci--

By the way, where is Dr. Fauci?

Iran is a total disaster. And Putin is starting to quarantine people.

But France is the only country I get a news feed from and they've lost around 2,000 people.

There are cases throughout the Middle East, with Iran being one of the hardest hit countries (over 35 thousand cases, and over 2500 deaths.

Russia only has 1200+ cases and 4 reported deaths. 

Here's an interactive map via Johns Hopkins that's a good resource.

Trump going to Norfolk to "see off" the USNS Comfort hospital ship.  Is this trip really necessary?  Will it actually delay the sailing of the ship?  How many people will be on this trip, including Secret Service and others?  How many people at Norfolk will be taken from their duties to entertain and protect the president and his entourage?  Will he find a way to visit one of his golf courses?

Cuomo with an apt description of what has gone on on the Federal level: "We have been in a reactive posture since Day 1…. You don’t win on defense; you win on offense.”

Cuomo now talking about the national levels. Saying in effect the lack of federal leadership has caused states to compete against each other, driving up costs. Also calling out the lack of a testing process and failure there on a national level.
 
12:48 PM · Mar 28, 2020·Twitter for iPhone

As this National Tragedy unfolds, courageous leadership is stepping up from  State Governors in New York, Michigan, Washington, California, Illinois, and elsewhere.

These Governors feel compelled to act in the wake of the lethargic response and contradictory policies coming from the executive branch of the federal government.

Trump admitted that he instructs his team not to help, or to help less,
 
states with governors who criticize his dangerously inept response to this pandemic.
 
In his sick, sociopathic mind, his ego is more important than literally thousands of American lives.

Sick, sadistic sociopath.....

FDA authorizes emergency use of 15-minute coronavirus test

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized the emergency use of a new, rapid coronavirus test that could give patients results in less than 15 minutes.

Abbott, the medical device company that created the test, said Friday it can deliver "results in as little as five minutes and negative results in 13 minutes."

Other approved tests are able to provide results within hours or days.

The company said it is ramping up production to deliver 50,000 tests to the U.S. health care system starting next week. .......

Dr Smith had to been the worst (in a good way) villain ever.  Was hard to take him seriously.  The theatrical movie fixed that.

EXACTLY!  We cannot take Donald Trump seriously as Commander-in-Chief; he is demonstrating this daily as never before!  Unfortunately for the thousands, possibly even millions of Americans who may die due to Trump’s handling of this crisis, this is not a movie!

Now let me get this straight. You're touting about all these research scientists trying to find a vaccine or some kind of a drug remedy for the coronavirus. Now these research scientists and doctors are the same intellectual breed of people who have told us about climate change.

Yet you're willing to believe one group of scientists but not another group of scientists, when all scientists follow the same principles and evidence-based scientific method that dates from the 17th century.

Science is science and you can't decide that you want to believe it just because it's something that suits your right-wing political narrative--

Your terminology, certainly not mine.

Yet at the same time you can't believe another group of scientists who are just as reputable and from the same educational institutions and methods because it doesn't fit your right-wing political narrative.

Spock would say that's just not logical.
