    Imagine finally you get to see your little one through a window, but then, her reaction when you must walk away.
    An in-law hospitalized with cancer will die without family visitors. Unimaginable emotional times for our
    superhero health care workers…thanks for reminding us there are good people everywhere in the world.

    I get tears in my eyes when I see or hear from them. What a disaster Trump has been, world-wide. Hope someone is keeping control of the purse strings. 3 Trillion dollars is at stake.

    Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite,
    Chief of Engineers, commanding general of the Army Corps of Engineers talking to Maddow:
    “This virus…has been changing and you can’t just figure out what is the plan and build out the plan.
    So when we went into this…we really did think we’d have a lot more capability to do things like hotels and dormitories and we were a little nervous of the great big Convention Center because we weren’t sure we could actually put covid in there…Instead of having little oxygen tanks for everybody’s bed we actually brought in central piping with oxygen to be able to modify that Center. So every single time we build one we have a standard design…and we continue to modify the standard design, then site adapt it, power it down, and be able to decentralize execution at the point of need. So it’s been a very very evolving concept.
    But as a result we’re getting better and better capabilities….
    It really goes back to being responsive to the needs of the mayor and the governor…we’re part of FEMA….
    where does the governor want to go with their plan…how do we continue to adapt? Obviously in NY because of the different changes in some of the medical populations, but the team rallied, and as a result we’ve got a very capable facility. Tonight it is taking care of people.
    …I think tonight we’ve done about 828 different assessments…
    So when we look at a facility we go in very detailed analysis with a lot of the same fundamental modeling parameters and then we build out that particular city…we need a plan here where it’s going to be a 21 day build, and then we’ll go to the contractors and say this is going to need 24/7, this is where we need you to turn on and give us every single thing you have, because we do not want to be late for need.
    And we’re pushing real hard…the other facilities we’ve got, but right now we continue to think we can barely just stay ahead of the curves in all of those key cities.”
    ….So can we get a military Command and Control to oversee procuring and allocating medical supples nationally?
    …Betting a few military guys could do this critical leadership job with their eyes closed…

    The Obamas always lead the way with compassionate intelligence! Relieved Bernie suspended but don’t trust too many of his followers not to still burn down everything.

      Let’s Go Big on funding:
      Oregon been doing vote by mail for a long time (permanent in 1987) :
      “1998 Oregonians confirm their overwhelming support for vote-by-mail by passing Measure 60.
      2000 Oregon becomes the first state in the nation to conduct a presidential election entirely by mail. About 80% of registered voters participated.
      2019 Oregon becomes the first state not to require paid postage on ballot return envelopes.
      Measure 60 eliminated restrictions on vote-by-mail and established it as the single form of voting for elections in Oregon. It also required vote-by-mail to be used for biennial primaries and general elections as well as eliminating polling places.” (wiki)
      –Oregon has had zero problems with vote by mail.

      but states can still refuse to pass a bill to vote by mail….

    Where are we Jimmy?
    Steve Taylor, senior lecturer in psychology in UK: “It’s well known that shock and trauma slow down our time perception — it often happens in car crashes, robberies and falls. So I think it’s a variation of that.”
    “There have been so many novel and attention-demanding events recently, that time may have dilated, making this recent span seem to have lasted much longer than a comparable period of ordinary or expected events.”

    —–i remember being in the front of a car, careening on the ice towards the very edge, on the top of a mountain.
    All in slo-mo…didn’t feel the slightest worry…like floating…then at the last moment another car skidded on the ice and banged us back onto the road…and we drove off! Pls let’s make sure we have a course-correct like that!

    imo, Trump Party COVID-19 strategy per WI includes:
    1) Force the urban voters to show up in person.
    2) Which will reduce the number of urban voters in favor of rural voters.
    3) Absence of medical gear creates the fear and keeps you home.
    Campaign strategy to target and disenfranchise voters – with right wing SCOTUS on board.

    If the governors of those states that refuse to follow common sense measures to mitigate the corona virus well then those governors should be held liable if any of those citizens should get sick and or die.

    Chairman Schiff to Hayes:
    “This president is allergic to the idea of oversight
    and used it as a threat by very deliberately retaliating against the respected Intelligence Community Inspector General…then chastising …the Inspector General of Health and Public Services for telling the truth, for essentially going out interviewing hospitals around the country to find out the ground truth: Are the hospitals getting what they need? Do they have the ventilators, do they have the protective equipment? You know, you would expect a president to want to know those two answers to determine whether what he is doing is working or not. But it revealed quite the opposite, that the happy talk coming out of the White House wasn’t consistent with the ground truth, and therefore this is a threat to the president’s preferred narrative of things.” (more)

    You know, I’m not really surprised at the number of African Americans that have contacted or have died from the corona virus versus the percentage rate of African Americans in any city or town or state. The corona numbers bore out the inequities in society.
