Re: Trump administration blocking PPE and other supplies to Michigan

I know an EMT who is using the SAME mask he had last week. He cleans it every shift. Keep in mind each cleaning reduces the effectiveness. So when he shows up for your heart attack he may have just transported a Covid patient. Just one of the reasons a lot of protective ware gets used daily.

Maybe if the Prez actually read what was put on his desk...... but he does know more than everyone else and he will tell you that.

Re: Republicans Tried to Sneak Abortion Restrictions into the Coronavirus Bill

Why is it always just about the woman. Wasn't there a sperm doner involved? The problem is 50% his. Maybe if it was treated as a 50-50 problem more men would keep their zipper zipped.

Re: Michigan state of emergency!

Items in short supply could cause a major problem. A friend just had follow-up colonoscopy to colon cancer and the nurses are having to wear the same mask for repeated services that are not invasive due to shortage. Another is an EMT and he said the shortage of the really good protective stuff is ge...

Re: Coronavirus is in Michigan

Take a head count as to how many people in top positions in the Fed Gov. are temps or standin's who in an ordinary time have no business being that position due to lack of knowledge or just being a plain suck-up. Now R Reagan's quote fits, "Government is not the solution to our problem; government i...

Re: YouTube TV dropping FSD

Heard today that there is a possibility that Comcast will NOT renew their contract with the old fox regional sports channels. That won't sit well with the Detroit sports teams or Comiecast users.

Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

What we are seeing was explained in the book The Fifth Risk. The many departments in the Fed. Gov. set up sessions to explain how the government works to the incoming Administration and NO BODY SHOWED UP! If there was an individual that did showed total ignorance and no interest. When the man named ...

Re: RePack Phase 8 started

I did a re-scan and found I lost all of what was channel 19. They were there a week ago but now blank. TVO 32 registers as 19.1 due to their signal freq. One thing on the plus side was I added channels 6 and 53 out of Lansing.

Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

Something to keep in mind is the use of antibiotics, some say overuse, the viruses mutate and try to outwit the current shots that's given to counteract it. The Spanish flu of 1919-20 took months to spread around the world due to what our transportation was. Today it can be as quick as 12 hours. It ...
