    The Commanding officer of the Roosevelt was relieved of duty today... pleading to the press for help is not a good career move

    None of this will ever be proven. The only good thing that will come of this is an eventual decoupling with the Chinese. Of course that will lead to increased military tension. Vicious cycle. Asia will be the epicenter of the next world war with the US standing alone against Russia and China.

    I just don’t see China and Russia teaming up, Russia dosen’t have the means to man up. However China is a different story if it can control its internal struggles.
    Just my opinion sir.

    "We are just finding out that those not showing symptoms can spread this virus"

    I know you haven't watched his press conference, otherwise you'd understand that It's quite clear what he said. Not sure why you feel the need to defend his incompetence. I don't give a shit what his party affiliation is.

    @RBB - Why don't you see Russia and China teaming up? Have you heard of BRICS?

    Funny how the things our parents did seem to not be so crazy now. Those drive in theaters were fading away as old-fashioned when I started moviegoing in the mid-70’s.

    My daughter (the nurse looking after Corona patients on ventilators) got good news today. The hospital has enough N95 masks to give them each one a day. You are suppose to wear a N95 for 3 hours then throw it out....her shift is 12 hours. Before today her friend has been wearing the same mask since March 18th.
    Tonight.. I am watching the news where 3M is selling all their N95 masks to overseas countries before supplying US orders because they are paying in cash. I use to have a lot of respect for 3M.... there is no way I am purchasing their products again... America should be first...it shouldn't have to be a law

    POTUS hit 3M with the Defense Production Act and shamed them on Twitter.

    I’ll never buy 3M anything again.

    While 3M didn’t take the lead here, they sell thru distributors who sell to hospitals. It’s the distributors who are selling overseas. 3M should have cut out the middle man and sold directly to governments. All of these turncoat distributors should be shut down for good. Sounds like they used the DPA to turn back these shipments at customs, which is a good thing.

    When you are a designated distributor for 3M you are 3M.... I don't believe for a second 3M didn't know where their masks have been going for the last 3 months
