  1. The Corona Virus Thread

    Crozier was in a tough spot. Faced with watching his crew go down one by one, being in tight quarters knowing that the other crewmen were in danger, and knowing this would change his readiness status was an untenable position. I fully understand his chain of command structure and so did he but his number one job was to maintain the TR in a state of 100% readiness. Anything that threatens that must be challenged as quickly and with as much force as necessary to remedy the situation. He was a leader doing what he was taught, take care of the men that serve beneath you that their appetite, health, and well being is cared for first. Modly stupidly emphasized exactly that in his ship wide announcement which leaves one scratching their head, he was fired for doing exactly what he trained to do with or without a command structure. The alternative may have been a crew and ship unable to defend herself let alone America. Then how would we have looked if a nuclear powered carrier was compromised to this degree. Hair plug needed to go, it was in the navy style of burying their dead at sea.
  2. The Corona Virus Thread

    I sadly don't trust the man, the people around the man, or the shady double speak. Yesterday I'm watching the pandemic update rally from the white house newsroom where he says we're going to freeze WHO funding, then 30 seconds later he says I didn't say that. I literally can't take it and now is not the time to be fucking about, he's seriously absent from leadership. The firing of the Carrier Captain day before yesterday was brutal, the announcement from that hair plug Modly that berated the captain and the crew was disgraceful. What's next and hasn't there been enough drama for one single presidency? It all needs to stop and as for research I do quite a bit of it, no single source defines what I think but standing on the podium all but prescribing drugs, false hope, promise, and the uncertainty of death is beneath everything, especially when you have credentialed doctors standing right behind you. Oh and then let's talk about this 2 TRILLION dollar cash cow sausage that got enacted. The Republican hawks in congress flipped a lid and talked all kinds of mad shit back in 2008 when they needed 900 Billion to put into shoring up banks, housing, and auto makers. This after 1.5 Trillion in a tax cut. Have my Republican brothers sold every stitch of dignity? I don't even recognize the Republican party anymore, it's like the Dems on steroids. This is all a huge charlie foxtrot and it matters not what media you read, listen to, or watch. Oh and finally one more thing, the man had three plus years to re-stock the stock pile or at least check to make sure it was stocked or not. You don't find yourself in the middle of a pandemic, that you were warned about months ago, having not even bothered to check that we're prepared for a war with a virus. Even if Obama left it depleted after Katrina. Fill the damn thing it's the taxpayer money not yours. One thing that I absolutely agree with Trump on is our American manufacturing has to come back, problem is he's done nothing to bring it back other than tax cuts which got turned into CEO bonuses, share profits, and share buy back. Yeah I'm nuts, call me stupid, call me ignorant, I don't care but I'm as American as anyone and this shit sucks no matter how you try and defend it. What ever happened to an honest man doing an honest job and treating everyone with respect? Has it all gone as an era of the past in trade for television ratings? The movie "Idiocracy" nailed it, thanks to His Holiness President Komacho! Let's give praise. Call me when it's over. I'm done.

    Jeanba there may be more truth to that than you know. Doctor Trump is now prescribing hydroxychloroquine, you'll laugh or cry when you learn why. https://www.forbes.com/sites/lisettevoytko/2020/04/07/trump-reportedly-holds-financial-interest-in-sanofi-french-drugmaker-of-hydroxychloroquine/#9b598401ef65

    That sucks. Wish he'd taken things a little more serious, though nobody deserves this so indeed hope he regains his health.
  5. The Corona Virus Thread

    Agreed. In the two week period from December 26, 2019 to January 8, 2020 when all this information was coming out of China's CDC we should have closed ALL international travel coming into the United States. Inexperience, susceptibility to conspiracy theories, and his own anger of being impeached led to classifying the intelligence as top secret and subjecting Congress' hearings to classified which had the effect of keeping the information from the people, states, municipalities, and hospitals. It was deny deny deny, hoax hoax, next democrat hoax, deny deny deny, yeah I always knew it was a pandemic. I can't think of a bigger dereliction of responsibilities and duties.

    It's actually worse than that. Here's a couple good reads worth knowing about. https://www.vox.com/2020/3/20/21188144/senators-dumping-stock-as-market-tanks https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-03-09/how-coronavirus-spread-from-patient-zero-in-seattle

    If you look like you're robbing the bank you're allowed in, all others are refused service. A lot of banks here no longer have lobby access to live tellers. You may use the ATMs or Mobile Banking for everything you can and need during this time.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion ... I'll see what I can get incorporated.
  11. The Corona Virus Thread

    DPD out for the count, that's gotta hurt. Who's going to fill the role? The chosen one signed the executive order to activate war time production but has yet actually mandated which companies are to make what and if he has tasked them he's refusing to say so. I'm so sick of our administration being half assed to the point of absurdity. There's no accountability for anything not even firing the NIH task force office in the white house that was responsible for our preparedness in the event of another outbreak. If you're not sick of winning then you've been on another planet. May we all get out of this alive. E

    One of the biggest regrets I have is what nationalism has done in our country. Some people were so busy making America great again that we are in no position to help the rest of the world. We're literally trying to keep ourselves from drowning and everyone else is on their own. We can't be a global economy, a global civilization that travels within hours between continents, but focus only on our selves. We either want to be a global community or we don't. Time to shite or get off the pot.
  13. The Corona Virus Thread

    Coronavirus AKA Covid19, discovered in November 2019 in China when the alert sounds were sounded. The 19 in Covid19 means discovered 2019, fun fact. Western civilizations and European countries were all asleep at the wheel watching the train wreck in the US that not even the loudest siren in Asia could be heard over the whine. China postponed the Chinese New Year folks, they don't do that for a run a day flu or cold. This is not political, just utterly disgusting and I digress. May you all weather the storm and sail again another day even in times like these when stupid is manning the helm. Be well all. E
  14. Someone should recognize the terrain, clouds, or game feel and move this. It is freakishly feeling out of place in the Pub.
