    Stumbled upon this John Legend virtual concert…

    https://news.yahoo.com/john-legend-chrissy-teigen-keeping-200526568.html

    John Legend put on a virtual concert as part of a series headed by the World Health Organization and Global Citizen called Together, At Home. Chrissy attended in a towel and drank copious amounts of wine.

      The military has to use the chain of command. In my opinion, this commanding officer knew he’d be relieved before he spoke out, but felt it was worth it – and apparently the only way to get anything accomplished. He did the right thing by sounding the alarm openly, because I fail to believe he didn’t use the chain of command first. Nevertheless, even though I think it was admitted by the Navy that what he said was correct, they relieved him for “lack of confidence,” a term that has a wide, wide range. I don’t think they took away his rank, but just relieved him of command and transferred him somewhere.

      For the rest of his life, he won’t regret it, either, I’m thinking.

    The difference between life and death.
    Governor Cuomo to Maddow:
    We have “enough for 6 days….If we are not yet at the apex we will be in a bad place. This is truly frightening,
    I’ve handled a lot of disasters, a lot of emergencies as governor and in the Federal Government.
    By far and away nothing comes close to this in terms of the need for intelligent, rigorous, muscled government
    to respond quickly and smartly. It all comes down to whether your healthcare system can handle it….
    There’s no philosophy here. It all comes down to can you handle the number of people walking in the door.
    And if you can’t people will die….that’s what this is. And the simplicity is what makes it so tragic.
    Because we don’t have a piece of equipment someone is going to die?
    Because we don’t have staff someone is going to die?…
    How did we get to this place in this country that we have to buy all our supples from China?
    I can’t get protective equipment because CHINA is making it. China is making the ventilators?
    We couldn’t figure out how to make protective equipment quickly enough?
    We couldn’t figure out how to make ventilators?
    We can’t figure out this rolling deployment which makes all the sense in the world? And is frankly simpler for every locality? I said we have 20,000 volunteers coming from across the county – I said I will return the favor.
    I’ll pack up every ventilator, I’ll bring our entire health team, and I’ll go to any community across the country.
    I will drive personally and thank them for their assistance, for what they did for New York
    That’s what we do. You know there’s something called mutual aid in an emergency.
    In a flood…a power utility will flex…if you will see a large truck on the road…Arizona trucks driving to New York City, New York City trucks driving to Florida.
    That’s how we react to those emergencies,
    you flex with the need.
    And the consequences are going to be devastating.
    “What keeps me up at night is not just the numbers, but a deep sense that it didn’t have to be,
    it didn’t have to be.”

    Thinking about
    New Yorkers dying while Governor Cuomo has been begging and pleading for assistance.
    By the time the phantom partisan snails in the WH have agreed to a national rolling apex strategy;
    BY the time Doom has agreed to put the U.S. military in charge to commandeer factory production and
    distribute it evenly;
    The death toll in NY will be enormous, and their apex will be over.
    And how just in the nick of time, the ignorant de Santises,
    and all those red states governors refusing to order their Residents to stay at home….
    Will benefit from those thousands of ventilators fkn hard won by Governor Cuomo’s guts, blood, tears, and steel.

    Starter for ten:
    Who said “We are just a back-up?”
    If you can locate Lawrence O’Donnell’s intro last night:
    Pls listen to what he said about Trump posing as ‘War time President’ while declaring he’s:
    “JUST A BACKUP”.
    Ventilator price wars, $25,000 becomes $45,000….what is a life worth in Trump’s horror movie?
    Governors carrying the can on their own, bidding against other states, foreign governments, as well as ours.
    Shameless Doom is running a tails-you-lose-heads-I-win strategy with our states. An infamously lazy, failed businessman who is on record passing the hours choosing fabric for the hotel drapes…
    How many will die to please his agenda?
    Thousands dead and he announces Americans “can’t get enough of it” because we’re so crazy excited. (fact)
    If we can’t stop giving him one more disaster podium, one more soapbox for idiot tyrants, why not just stand him in the middle of 5th Avenue and let him do it already.

    Margo Sanger-Katz on Hayes…options if you lose your healthcare….with Cobra you can go on buying from your employer, same treatment with same doctors (expensive?) On the Obamacare market you may automatically qualify for a special enrollment period with potential subsidies, if your income is low you may qualify for medicaid which varies state by state. Not all states have medicaid expansion.
    –In eleven states you can buy through Obamacare exchanges.
    -“Because of Obamacare there are more options than in previous economic downturns.”

      BERWICK: “The insurance coverage is weaker and weaker, more out of pocket payments.
      And now the Administration is allowing basically junk plans.
      They look cheap but they are not going to be cheap for someone who has problems with the coronavirus. So this is a time when really have to take stock as a country. Are we really providing the kind of coverage our people need, not just for a pandemic, but in normal life these catastrophes hang over us all the time.”
