    He's the lawfully elected decision-maker, so that's who you gotta deal with. I mean, if you can't figure out how to work with a mental nitwit who is vulnerable to the most basic charm offensive,...

    Meh, I won't josh you around. Because we let them and we're willing to pay it.


    tbm has a good long-form answer. PBMs theoretically serve as middle-men between pharmacies and insurance...

    Yeah, this is pretty stupid, but Trump has a major problem overestimating America's relative strength and is prone to these kinds of idiocies.

    OTOH, if the WHO can't convince the world's biggest...

    Twitter is a public website, and the question is whether it qualifies as a publisher. The New York Times is not allowed to broadcast "HAMAS ATTACK TOMORROW AT NOON." Facebook and Twitter are legally...
  5. It's not at all clear what's going with the PPE,...

    It's not at all clear what's going with the PPE, but that's the fault of the Trump administration for not being clear in what it's doing or why and has a made a big deal of having the governors...
  6. I don't know how you create a position where New...

    I don't know how you create a position where New York gets absolved of blame and Trump receives the lion's share. New York has one of the, if not the, worst outbreaks on the planet, and a lot of it...
  7. Moderately but not really. The US is several...

    Moderately but not really. The US is several times the size of other nations so a crude case or death count isn't particularly useful. Germany and some of the Nordic nations appear to be doing well,...

    The internet in general and discussion boards in particular are pretty bad places to find rank-and-file conservatives, whether of the Evangelical or MAGA variety. A lot of them think this is...

    That's pretty much what already happens, but it's not at all clear that a waiver grant by administrative fiat cannot be rescinded by administrative fiat. Not really confident that Supreme Court case...

    Wife's hospital is now over-full and she spends the beginning hour of every shift processing hospice orders for people who are not going to make it. I think it was 2 weeks ago that her hospital was...

    My impression is that we can still operate the carrier if necessary, we just need to pack a few bodybags for the crew. That might not be an acceptable trade-off during peace time, but if you actually...
  12. MN winters are way worse than Chicago winters....

    MN winters are way worse than Chicago winters. Our Summers are muggier, but at least they are longer. And the transit is indeed a lot better!

    However....Chicago still has crap for natural...
  13. You don't need NBC training. The ship captain...

    You don't need NBC training. The ship captain says he cannot comply with quarantine recommendations. He says he can maintain combat readiness, no problem, but several sailors are going to die to need...
  14. Chicago is an excellent choice. Overall a great...

    Chicago is an excellent choice. Overall a great city with a lot of amenities, good jobs, decent rents in a lot of places, depending on where exactly you go. A lot of the city is still "meh" but a lot...

    Getting pretty intense here. Everyone in the state got an emergency message asking for licensed healthcare workers. My wife's ICU went from totally empty to about half-full in about 5 days. I suspect...

    Like Astralis said, the churches and restaurants are not all closed. Certain states are not only not taking action, but prohibiting local areas from taking action. Mississippi is going to get rocked....
  17. Rural areas still go to churches and they still...

    Rural areas still go to churches and they still go to town to go to restaurants. That's enough to get infected, especially if a bunch of people from the city try to flee out there. And those areas...

    I would not necessarily look at China and be convinced that they are out of the woods. The situation is changing daily and this virus is likely to be with us for quite some time.

    What we need to...

    $5/mask, ey? Nice little mark-up there.

    I've a few P100s left-over from a minor home project. Definitely will be adding a few more to the stockpile after this fiasco, but will need to wait a...

    There is still limited testing capacity and they need to control utilization. Right now state guidance is only to test those hospitalized with unexplained pneumonia and people living or working in...
