  • You USA should act like a leader, if you want to be viewed as one in the world. Electing Tramp for President, doesn't resonate with leadership. And I don't say this as an insult, but as an advise.

  • @<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="768">12:48</a> - That's just to preserve the limited supply of masks for health professionals and people who are actually sick. There are plenty of tutorials on NOproject on how to *make* *your* *own* *masks* - out of old t-shirts, cotton woven fabric, etc. The most recent recommendation is for 180-thread count cotton woven fabric, folded over so it's doubled, with elastic sewn into or tied into the edges of the mask. This is what Japan, South Korea, and many other nations (where the disease curve flattened out) have done. Best part about those fabric masks is you can wash them in hot water with soap and bleach - and use them again! [edit to add] Instructions for masks from Kaiser Permanente: More instructions for homemade fabric face masks - this recommends 180-thread count and suggests one layer cotton fabric and one layer cotton flannel fabric:

    • @Charming nowhere to hide - Thanks! I've been reading up on how the N95 masks are constructed, and although I can never equal that at home, I might be able to make something slightly better than a medical-mask-style facecover. Here are the challenging requirements for an N95 mask: Another link on that subject:

  • Twice in 20 years here we had a single point of failure in the massive apparatus meant to keep the country secure. Its 9/11 all over again. US intelligence repeatedly warned Bush that Al Qaeda was poised to attack US. It was in his daily security briefing. Yet he ignored it. A massive overhaul of post 9/11 security apparatus let to creation of Department of Homeland Security and centralized 17 agencies under it. Yet it continued and to-date continues to have a fatal flow. A single point of failure at the very top. Allowing a President to ignore warnings. Now we have trillions in economic damage, countless deaths imminent and untold suffering. Why bother spending $750 billion in defense and another $300 billions on homeland security CIA, department of energy (nuclear weapons). Why build our 21st and 22nd aircraft carrier? Who is doing threat assessments that continue to be focused on fighting hot wars. I want my taxpayer money back. That money was wasted and didn't keep us secure.

You, you had to say LFC is your favorite Football team! LPMQLP (search it in spanisch), I don't like you anymore, I love you now. Keep yourself sano and animado.
