The federal government can either give the ventilators to New York or they can hold them. 

They are sending 4000. I’m glad Trump made a point to mention Cuomo’s decision not to purchase thousands of them in 2015. He was told NY was unprepared in case of a pandemic such as this, and didn’t heed the warning. His whining and blaming the Federal Govt was rich, and he deserved to be called out on this.

Cuomo has been good and has been reluctant to criticize Trump. He's even praised him. The last couple days it seems like he's hedging his bets so he can go after Trump at a later date. People need to remember that preparing for such things as a virus is primarily a state's responsibility. The feds can coordinate and have some extra stockpiles but as a last resort. Any state that's not prepared can first fault themselves.

according to one of the constitutional scholars earlier in the thread, that’s not true because....

 

federalism means that each state has to defend itself from foreign invasions or some approximation of that epically brain dead statement.

You cannot develop herd immunity to this epidemy without sacrificing too many lives.

Too many people will need artificial breathing and there is no enough treatment for everybody.

And I am talking about people in the 30/50 years of age.

 

Now that there are BIG hot beds that went over control the only way is the lockdown italian way, also UK understood this and after he told the worst things about how we managed the infections he is simplying copying our laws.

After the big hot beds will be over, you can copy what Korea made, that is trace EVERY case and lockdown only the positve spots with the use of local mass testing and technology to follow the chains of infection.

 

Italy is experimenting this with success in small centers in the countryside.

We're watching the complete meltdown of the Democratic Party, and if their effort this week to halt help to the American people isn't a reminder of how unbelievably incompetent they are, imagine waking up in three months to find THIS is the guy they chose as their candidate to run for president.

 

He can't complete a full sentence without spitting up on himself.

 

You can see why @Tiberius is such a fan.:lol:

i'm a big fan of math. studied it with some seriousness. were you aware that equations need to have correct input in order to have correct output?

 

this is one of the first things they taught in my computer classes in the early 1980s.  GIGO.  Garbage In = Garbage out.  Still true today.

Sup, fellas. Just checking up on everyone. I hope all of you and yours are healthy and virus-free. I’ve been in self-quarantine for two weeks now. So far so good. Hang tight. Hopefully this will all pass soon.

4000 is not enough and the federal government has more they are not using. People do not need to die because Cuomo ***** up in 2015. It's 2020 and a national emergency.

Yes, you idiot, the feds have more and will disperse them when and where they expect them to be needed. In the meantime companies are gearing up to manufacture more.

About 3 weeks ago, I quoted a friend who said this (knowing someone) about the US. I hope he’s wrong...

The numbers are getting worse. 

 

Yesterday 140 people dead. 

 

Today over 220 deaths. 

 

Today over 110 fatalities in NYC alone.

It’s a fluid  situation, and if they actually need more they will get more. Need could arise elsewhere. Can’t flip out over Cuomo’s projections which are using numbers that don’t exist. You’re not going to send them all at this point.
