    .. why did you think we offshored the bullshit-pumping contracts to Stinkhigh and the Nederlands in the first place?

    Have a care yah don't get so greedy that yah over-commit yer pumps ... and drown in SEAWATER for lack of focus on what really MATTERS, your own patch.

    And Trump was just asked if he was tested for antibodies. He said no. He said it was a new test and no ones really been tested for antibodies in mass. Yes....if I go to an expert I can be tested. Mostly a few doctors with connections and expertise may have been tested. But there has not been mass testing for antibodies. It’s another bogus comment from Rush. What’s new.

    Not mass testing yet, but antibody testing has begun. There are several commercial labs that are offering it to individuals and employers. $29.95 and 10 minutes.

    ARCpoint Labs | Trusted Drug Testing, Alcohol Testing, & DNA Testing

    Some of the tests are under emergency use, and one is FDA approved- meaning it has been validated by the FDA. The tests under emergency use have not received the FDA stamp of approval, the makers say they conform but buyer beware...

    More will follow with FDA certification quickly.

    I afraid this will be another bugaboo.

    So if you test positive for the antibodies, you're good to go....supposedly. You can go back to "work".

    What if you test negative?

    Do you have to stay in your house? Can you go to the store? Can you return to work? Can you go to church? Can you go to a yard sale?

    Can you be forcibly removed from said activities?

    How do we KNOW that you tested positive? Tatoo?

    Can you say scarlet letter?

    I'm not concerned about setting up some kind of a two-tiered society, that's a strawman, imo. The US will never go for that. It would be nice for health care workers and first responders to know if they have some immunity. Testing for SARS-COV2 only tells you if you have it or not- today.

    It's really about getting data. The antibody testing can be done large scale and it tells you how much the virus has penetrated the population. That's extremely useful to know.

    F**k's sake. Life's become too much of a risky bitch to deal with, just NOW?

    Ever heard of an "STD"? Strep? Staph? Cancer? "Necrotizing bacteria"? [1]

    Check the odds.


    [1] WTF were "flesh-eating" bacteria eating before we called them "flesh eating", anyway? Tofu and seaweed, maybe?

    The law makers have been pretty busy since 2016. You really should forgive them. so many investigations, so much ado about impeachment. You know they mean well, they are so trying to do what is right for ALL citizens.

    Huge difference if this was random-sampled test or antibody test for people who suspected having it already.

    If random-sampled from whole population that would be great (but IMO unlikely at this point)
    If tested for those interested or ones that think they had it earlier it is pretty much expected result.

    If you think the president and Rush just made up the antibody story that fine with me..it's not worth an argument
    In this good old USA you can believe what you wish and not get shot for having an opinion

    Matt, I don't have any specific information. The way I believe they intend to roll it out is in conjunction with the swab tests, focusing on initially on health care workers and first responders.

    With a pretty rapid- 1-2 weeks ramping up to large scale serological testing, concentrated first in the areas of greatest concern- the main metros, and working out to the burbs and less affected areas last.

    One of the odd things about this event is the rapid transition from what societies were doing ‘over there’ to wholesale adoption of the same measures in the US.
    Mass graves are being dug in the US for covid patients.
    It wasn’t several weeks back that this was the stuff of extreme dysfunction observed and guessed at in Iran.

    As happens, a 1219C2, later "Ka-Bar", is a superb "kitchen knife".

    Just "not only". Don't HAVE to be a Marine to recognize that, either.

    It's what happens when you're a first-world country being "led" by a fourth-rate president.

    That's a little bit of an overstatement, don't you think? That island has been a burial site for a long time, It shouldn't be a surprise that the numbers go up in the epicenter of a pandemic.

    The comparison to Iran seems a little over the top...
