    Do yah no good.

    You'd still lose at that game if Jimmy Carter were your sole and only competition!

    Shanghai cadre must LOVE the way your zealotry is bringing the focus of more negative scrutiny on PRC each passing week, yah?

    Carry on!

    You couldn't happen to a more deserving cadre!

    Bla bla bla blablablabla .... I believe mr thermite just illustrated my point better than twenty paragraphs from me could do. Thank you, thermite.

    No wonder you people can't handle the simplest, most basic, tried-and-tested public health measures. All you seem to be able to do is swish that vomitous spew around inside your empty heads for another three or four cycles.

    Then you have to do what you should have done in the first place anyhow ... except the penalties are then ten times worse.

    'scuse me, thermite : 560,000 sick people and 22,000 deaths as of this moment. You surely are great. Your man did an excellent job, as we can see from the numbers. World class.

    Would you mind coming back to toss a few more irrelevant insults now, so people can really understand where you're coming from ? Maybe they didn't understand my point the first time ...

    Earn it, and ye shall receive.

    Your daddy's tax dollars at work, buppy. 'bout a quarter-million of 'em 1963-1968 for training my aging ass. Electronics, nukes, missiles, cryogenics, construction, water treatment, lots more. And that was just the USAF and US Army dime. More-yet on mine.

    Not really a problem dealing with sewage treatment turns out to be as useful as rigging in me old age.

    Got all the shots and boosters needed to stay healthy whilst dealing with the odd floating turd, Stinkhigh or just up the road from Hell, either one.

    No matter what happens, the liberal left, that would include yourself, will criticize Trump for taking a shit or having breakfast. It's part of the liberal mantra.

    Liberal-Socialist-free shit = good.

    Conservative anything = bad.
    Again, right back at you

    It is easy to criticize a screw up

    trump is not a conservative, he is a moron

    you voted for a moron to run the country, and you are getting what you paid for



    gee, remember when everything Obama did was wrong?

    shoes, feet etc

    Huh? Another characteristic post. Right up there with "I enjoy the Bible."

    You, spinit, Buck and DMFTom B could be competing for something, just impossible to know what it is, though Buck and Tom break character occasionally when it comes to actual machining.

    You?

    Let us be clear, the shutdown, where it is shutdown, has been done by the governors.

    with little to no input or direction by trumpski


    he sat idly by while the virus spread in this country, and the governors were forced to act


    trumpskis CDC fumbled the testing


    'let's not play the blame game' is what you say when you screwed up



    Trump Retweets 'Fire Fauci' Coronavirus Message In Easter Sunday Twitter Rampage | HuffPost

    yeah, disagree with the kindergartener, how long do you last?


    lessee how long before the anti Fauci propaganda starts here?

    You were out sick during school civics class?

    It's a FEDERAL REPUBLIC .... of the UNITED States.

    The Governers HAVE to do it so long as it is a civil matter.

    The President does not have the direct authority to command it unless, and until, he puts a State or some PORTION of it, under Martial Law, usually "Federalizing" it's OWN "National Guard" AND NOT sending in ARMED troops from Active Military.

    See Governor George Corley Wallace, Jr. and segregated schools.

    Stand in the Schoolhouse Door - Wikipedia

    Before you even START, BTW, a Democrat in the White house did that, not Trump. Not even a Ripofflican.

    We don't HAVE Governors in defiance of the Law of the Land, this time out.

    Each is doing as they see fit for the circumstances of their State. Some better than others. Some in close agreement with the Feds RECOMMENDATIONS, and "enabling" guidance, permissisions, and legislation - not "orders", per se.

    Other's less-so and sorting it out as they go.

    Gavin Newsom was surely no fan of DJT, nor the reverse.

    Yet the California administration worked very well with the Fed. Some Ripofflican Governors did not. They don't WORK for the Fed. It is MEANT to work for THEM.

    This is NOT the four-hundredth performance of some long-running Broadway Play that still rehearses every day, either... BTW.

    NO ONE had prior experience at a challenge of this type, nor of this MAGNITUDE.

    EVRYBODY is having to "wing it", You me.. a Governor. Or DJT.

    There WILL be sub-optimal events. There WILL be outright f**k-ups.

    What is important is that we not cease trying to CORRECT both of those.

    "Blame game' only wastes yer own time and mind.

    Active participants have no time for the distraction of that.

    They'll look at it LATER, when they have more FACTS than bystander's armchair "opinion" and outright GUESSES, if not also foolish lies.

    See "Seamoss / Goldbrick" and the alleged perfection of immaculate virgin China.

    Those will be looked at as well.

    Why make a fool of telling them when they will be caught-out, later if not sooner?

    It ain't about whom is President. here or anywhere else.

    Sometimes the Universe just gratuitously shits in everybody's messkit all at once.

    All we can do is JFDWT

    No, it's about the 5000th running.

    The name of the play is "Get Trump".

    Anyone with eyes and ears and a functioning brain is ready to frag the moron at this point. Most of us aren't willing to ride into the valley of death just so we can get a line in a poem.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a fact, but it works both ways.

    Apparently Trump's crime is that he didn't clone 50,000 copies of himself and personally screen every passenger entering the US.

    Actions taken in January (copied from worldometer):

    On January 17, the CDC announced that 3 airports in the United States would begin screening incoming passengers from China: SFO, JFK, and LAX [6] Other 2 airports were added subsequently, and on January 28, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that 15 additional U.S. airports (bringing the total to 20) would begin screening incoming travelers from China.

    The CDC on Jan. 28 issued a Level 3 Warning, recommending that travelers avoid all nonessential travel to China

    The U.S. State Department on January 30 issued a Level 4: Do Not Travel to China Alert [4] (the highest level of alert). Previously, on January 29, the advisory was set at a lower "Level 3: Reconsider Travel" advising not to travel to Hubei Province: (Level 4) and reconsider travel to the remainder of China (Level 3).

    On Jan. 31, New York City health officials vehemently denied the rumor regarding a coronavirus case in the city .[13]. On Feb. 1, however, the city's health commissioner did report that there was a test being performed on a person under 40 who had returned from China, developed matching symptoms, and tested negative to the seasonal flu.

    President Donald Trump signed an order on Jan. 31 for the U.S. to deny entry to foreign nationals who traveled to China within the preceding two weeks, aside from the immediate family of U.S. citizens.

    On Jan. 31, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a federal quarantine for 14 days affecting the 195 American evacuees from Wuhan, China. Starting Sunday, Feb. 2, U.S. citizens, permanent residents and immediate family who have visited China's Hubei province will undergo a mandatory 14 days quarantine and, if they have visited other parts of China, they would be screened at airports and asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.

    On January 31, HHS declared Coronavirus a Public Health Emergency in the US. As of Jan. 31, the Wuhan coronavirus is officially a public health emergency in the United States, Alex Azar, secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), announced at a White House press briefing.

    ....

    Epidemiologists from the WHO were finally allowed into China on or about Feb. 18. They spent an entire half-day visiting Wuhan...

    75K dead in Europe and counting. Bet they wish they would have acted sooner...

    Let's be clear, That is the way it is meant to be, the way it is laid out in OUR Constitution.

    No authority except those specifically granted.

    Why do we give these responsibilities up so willingly? Lazy and incompetent citizens are we?

    I will mention one.

    You might deserve racist time out. That would be to forceably Lock you in quarantine with Aussie fellow for company for 48 hours.

    Guilty as charged. Worked HARD for Goldwater. Got a handshake. That's all. Not OLD enough to vote, that go. Treasure a more "personal" one from George Herbert Walker Bush when he was NOT President far more.

    Nixon had soured me so badly? I stopped even registering to vote.

    Slick Willy got a second term? BFD. I had moved offshore.

    Didn't vote clear from Nixon until Trump.

    Pence vs Kaine, actually.

    I didn't think EITHER of Trump or Billary would stay out of jail, or dodge an assassin's bullet, or avoid a nervous breakdown, or just EFFING QUIT more than six months out, and we already knew Kaine was a first-order snake, Pence dull but harmless by comparison.

    Trump's been more the pleasant surprise than not.

    May be an abrasive arsehole but damned if it wasn't just the right time in history we were in dire NEED of exactly that!



    Now? I think I can take four more years of that, upside down, and holding my nose!

    Not exactly as if there was a viable ALTERNATIVE, is there?

    Same as a one-man shop .. or a major Corporation.

    Yah run any job with what yah got, not what yah WISH yah had.

    Trump could not even gain ground with you guys if he rescued a litter of genetically enhanced super puppies from Putin himself.

    The way that accusations only require accusations now speeds up the bickering unsupported nonsensical cry for help that is now the lot of the defeated left.

    They secretly pray that Biden loses the presidency.

    I like him just fine. Not only that if you check the archives you will learn that he is wildly popular around non Milland hissy fit gals and M’s culprits.

    The truth hurts.
