CDC Director Robert Redfield says it's likely the U.S. is going to see human-to-human transmission and thus more cases of the coronavirus. "We're not going to be able to seal this virus from coming into this country," Redfield said. Meanwhile, the CDC says that some coronavirus testing kits that have been sent to states are flawed. And a 14th person tests positive for coronavirus.

Nothing to worry about.

"The virus that we're talking about having to do, a lot of people think that goes away in April, with the heat, as the heat comes in, typically that will go away in April."

-- the president of the United States of America

Better than the alternative, on the left and right.

I'm surprised you're so supportive of Trump and his policies. Thought more of your political scrutiny after 3+ years underTrump.

3 years of pure political entertainment, how about four more years? can you dig it?

The problem in the past has been the man turning us against one another. We have been unable to see the truth, because we have been fighting for ten square feet of ground, our turf, our little piece of turf. That's crap, brothers! The turf is ours by right, because it's our turn. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territory... secure our turf... because it's all our turf!

suckers

i always said outsourcing to china was mistake for twenty years now....

>Researchers are warning of an "imminent risk" of a global shortage because of the unprecedented scale of the cull.
>Most heparin-based drugs are sourced from the intestinal lining of slaughtered pigs.
>About 60% to 80% of the active key ingredient is prepared by companies in China and formulated into ready-to-use drugs by pharmaceutical companies around the world.
And how long until a shortage will strike the US.
>six-to-nine-month lag time before a shortage could affect the U.S. market.

If we're going to see a shortage of drugs in the US in only 6 to 9 months when China lowers their production a bit, it can't be longer than just few months until drugs run out completely in a total no production situation.
No one has stock nowadays. Everything is ordered as it's consumed.
This planet can go to crap at a drop of a hat because of this retarded outsourcing.

#10 Do know what the gestation time or litter size is for a pig? How easy it is to expand a sty if the demand is there?

Now I know what you are thinking: bacon, pork chops, ham... all these foods can't come from one magical animal, right?

Our pork production is in good hands.

Mistake for whom?

@#10 ... i always said outsourcing to china was mistake for twenty years now.... ...

Tell that to the corporations who were looking for lower costs of production, and to consumers who were looking for cheaper cost of goods.


When you have a retailer as large and as significant as Walmart sourcing a very large percentage of their wares from China because of the low cost, no matter how many times it is said that it was a mistake, it will (and did) happen.

I've expressed a similar concern about a large chuck of our technology being made in China.

This is just the tip of the iceberg...
