Re: Nurses “price gouging”

It’s also filling a major need there... undoubtedly shortages elsewhere will be filled in a similar way. I'm sure its filling a major need. But I'm not sure shortages elsewhere will be filled in a similar way. At some point if people go where the money is they will stay where the money is best. So ...

Re: N95 Masks Depleted Under Obama

Snoops calls the story "mixed". Yes the supply was severely depleted under Obama and he did not replenish it. But rather than just call it true they brought up that Trump had 3 years to fix it and didn't either.
So I guess Obama ignored it for 7 years and Trump did for 3.

Re: Trump administration blocking PPE and other supplies to Michigan

I was going to provide the link, Its from Crains but I have hit my free story limit. In any case TC Talks is less than honest in facts. Whitmer couldn't or wouldn't name any vendors FEMA denies her allegation that Michigan has been cut out. And even though I voted for her she is harming our state wi...

Re: Old Drug Shows New Promise

It seems at least some elements of the media are dubbing any excitement for these drugs as "false hope"

Re: Institute An Under 21 Curfew

My stepdaughter is a nurse at Royal Oak Beaumont. She says they have several 30 something's in ICU with COVID-19. In their mind younger age people no longer have a "free pass".

Re: The media is lying to you

The headlines are designed as clickbait by leaving out the most relevant information. 21 year old soccer coach dies of COVID-19 gets people's attention like 21 year old with underlying condition dies of COVID-19 doesn't. So while the headline isn't a lie it is intentionally misleading. Reminds me of...

Re: The media is lying to you

I do think when most of the stories headline his age and not the underlying condition it is a bit misleading. If the weatherman says its a bright sunny day, not a cloud in the gorgeous blue sky and there is a gentle cooling wind out of the west but fails to mention its 17 degrees below zero and the ...

Re: Media doing social separation

I think its as much about setting an example that may convince some folks as it is personal safety.
As we can tell from tobacco and vaping people don't seem to heed warnings well. I think anything that might get somebody to pay attention that otherwise wouldn't can't hurt.

Re: Downplays to Public - of Virus Danger - Criminal?

So I guess Fox News demographic is UM college students because it was business as usual for them till the Gov closed the bars. I know for a fact Corona parties have been all the rage around campus for several days. Who knew they got their marching orders from Fox?

Re: So I just got banned from my Nextdoor site.

I used to belong but I quit in a huff after getting in a pissing match over some Ann Arbor political" topic. As a moderate I was outnumbered like Custer at Little Big Horn. I sort of wish I hadn't left because it can be useful.

Re: Brian Williams Only Received 18 Hours Of College Credit-Apparently No Basic Math!

It's true that Brian Williams is a college drop out. That tidbit has been out in the open for a very long time. Williams has openly talked about it. The anecdotal reference about Mike Bloomberg, the $500 million, etc., is complete bullshit, however. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ordODDzVso8
