  1. The Kinks were prescient with this....awesome song Catch Me Now I'm Falling The Kinks I remember, when you were down And you needed a helping hand I came to feed you But now that I need you You won't give me a second glance Now I'm calling all citizens from all over the world This is captain America calling I bailed you out when you were down on your knees So will you catch me now I'm falling Help me now I'm calling you Catch me now I'm falling I'm in your hands, it's up to you Catch me now I'm falling I remember when you were down You would always come running to me I never denied you and I would guide you Through all of your difficulties Now I'm calling all citizens from all over the world This is captain America calling I bailed you out when you were down on your knees So will you catch me now I'm falling Help me now I'm calling you Catch me now I'm falling I'm in your hands, it's up to you Catch me now I'm falling When you were broke you would come to me And I would always pull you round Now I call your office on the telephone And your secretary tells me that she's sorry, But, you've gone out of town. This is captain America calling This is captain America calling Help me now I'm calling you Catch me now I'm falling I'm in your hands, it's up to you Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling I stood by you through all of your depressions And I lifted you when you were down Now it's your chance to do the same for me I call your office and your secretary tells me That you've gone out of town This is captain America calling This is captain America calling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling I was the one who always bailed you out Of your depressions and your difficulties I never thought that you would let me down But the next time you're in trouble Better not come running to me Now I'm calling all citizens from all over the world This is captain America calling I bailed you out when you were down on your knees So will you catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Catch me now I'm falling Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Ray Davies Catch Me Now I'm Falling lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
  2. What government isn't inept? Remember what Reagan said about government? +100000000000000000000000000000000 This is why he have to minimize our reliance on government, ESPECIALLY the federal government. For the forum leftists, notice I did say MINIMIZE, not eliminate.
  3. you are aware that PPE are CONSUMABLES? We could have bunches of them this year.... but if we don't keep buying bunches of them EVERY year, we consume them on a daily basis and, we run out. that's why they call them CONSUMABLES Are you aware that we are discussing a federal STOCKPILE for use during emergencies? Not day to day, month to month, year to year regular usage. That is the point of building up a stockpile of these things by the feds, to supplement the states when there is an emergency.
  4. I don't think there WAS inaction by Obama. And Cuomo ought not to have to bid against other governors for medical equipment in a pandemic. Apparently, you're cool with that. No, I am referring to your mastery of hindsight with regard to these questions. No inaction by Obama? Then we should have had enough PPE and supplies, right? Same for Cuomo. If he would have prepared the need would not be as great.
  5. I think that the feds should be completely responsible for the procurement of ventilators and PPE... sitting back and letting the 50 states have to bid against one another is an abdication of leadership. The federal government, is not, can not, nor ever will be able to manage economic interactions on that level. Some areas of intervention and facilitation perhaps. The same reason why the federal government cannot determine what the price of gas should be or any other commodity for that matter. Basic economics.
  6. Obama is not president. It's getting old to see the clown squad continue to try to avoid taking responsibility for their own inaction. Do you condemn the inaction of the Obama administration? You apparently like analyzing the past via perfect hindsight. Do you think they should have done more to prepare? Also, Cuomo is STILL the governor of one of our largest states.
  7. ...and then if he did NOT do something like this and the potential solution ended up being effective, people like MM would complain that Trump didn't do something "soon enough".
  8. I disagree.... the federal government is the agency to oversee a country wide pandemic. You have an interesting definition of "oversee".
  9. not yet... we will... soon... because the clown dithered. Apparently Obama dithered for eight years? Did he build up the PPE supplies of the federal government? What has Cuomo done since 2010? In 2015 he had the opportunity to purchase 1015k ventialtors, but chose to focus on such "threats" as climate change!
  10. Where did I say that anyone has? There are people who contracted the virus that would not have done so if the testing regime were more aggressive. And AGAIN.... if the clown squad spent our taxpayer dollars to run this elaborate public health war game last year where they ANTICIPATED Crimson Contagion... and the exercise SHOWED them that our health care system would quickly run out of ventilators and PPE..... WHY, when the CDC declared a public health emergency in January, did we wait until late March to institute the provisions of the DPA to alleviate those ANTICIPATED shortfalls that we KNEW would come? Well you were lamenting the lack of ventilators because of the inaction of the current administration. And AGAIN, 2019 was not the first time our leaders in the STATES and FEDERAL government have been warned of these EXACT circumstances. In 2008 the state of NY was specifically warned of their lack of preparedness for a pandemic. There is plenty of blame to go around for our apparent overall lack of preparedness. The federal government is not intended to be the first resort of government "help". This is up to the local and state with the federal able to back stop and fill in the gaps.
  11. what an idiot... if a democrat were in the White House, she would have already pulled the trigger on the DPA and we would NOT be suffering shortages like we are. The clown dithered... Americans died. Why acting like a dictator is so desired by those on the left is telling. Even if Trump "pulled the trigger on the DPA" (interesting choice of words) that does not mean things like ventilators and masks could be mass produced where they used to make car parts any faster than it is ALREADY happening. The private sector is stepping up BIG TIME in this crisis. Despite the lack of planning by states like NY, when they were specifically warned 10-15 years ago to the level of their unpreparedness, the federal government is doing what it can to backstop this bad planning.
  12. I don't listen to Rush, but if he did - clearly he was wrong - as were a shitload of people referencing this as a "cold", "sniffles" or otherwise... You know who else was wrong, The modelers at the Imperial college in the UK who predicted 2.2 million dead in the US and 500k in the UK. This was the study most cited by the democrat-party press. All of this KNOWING that the rate would and could NEVER be that high. Oops.
  13. Yes indeed. Exactly my point. Is this indicative of the "molecules to man" sort of macro evolution? I would say of course not. It is evidence of adaptation. As you noted the finches remained finches, the moths remained moths etc.
  14. Surely you jest. Humans have practiced evolution on animals through selective breeding for centuries. Race horses, fancy dogs and cats. huge breasted turkeys and chickens. You see the results of selective breeding at every dining room table in America. Sure, it isn't done by nature, so it's unnatural selection, but it works the same way. It seems that you are conflating "evolution" with adaptation. "Macro" evolution is the theory of molecules to man, which has NEVER been observed. Nor is there a shred of evidence showing one species transforming into another. Horses, cats and dogs remain horses, cats and dogs after selective breeding. Not how most define "evolution". What some call "micro" evolution or "adaptation" is what happened with Darwin's finches or the peppered moths in England etc.
