I am not a troll lol


So...why did you post such a troll-like comment...to say something controversial in order to get a rise out of other users? Because that is the definition of an internet troll.

I also heard Hanes was offering to mass produce masks but the prototype they were offering would not work. Unless they offered up something new in the last day or so. And as far as just because they aren’t now and it not meaning they won’t...supplies are need now. How long should we wait around to see if they will?

My comment was not “to get a rise” out of any user nor to be controversial

President Trump’s reluctance to use the Defense Production Act has been one of the most enduring mysteries of the coronavirus epidemic. The Defense Production Act is a 1950 law allowing the federal government to redirect vital industry for use in a crisis (primarily a war, but an epidemic would also do). Hospitals are desperately short of ventilators and respirators, and governors, doctors, and public-health officials have begged Trump to invoke the act to direct emergency production before hospital staff gets infected and patients begin dying.
Trump’s diffidence is puzzling, given his normal tendency to push presidential authority to, or well past, its constitutional limits. This is a president who claimed national-security powers to slap tariffs on steel from Canada and Mexico, and to build a border fence.
The New York Times resolves the mystery. Trump has refused to invoke the act because big business doesn’t want him to. “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the heads of major corporations have lobbied the administration against using the act,” the Times reports. “They say the move could prove counterproductive, imposing red tape on companies precisely when they need flexibility to deal with closed borders and shuttered factories.” Trump, Lawrence Kudlow, and Jared Kushner all reportedly found these arguments persuasive.
Of course, persuading that troika does not necessarily require a solid factual basis. Kudlow is a fanatical adherent of supply-side economics whose career of wrongness has been sustained by a willingness to advance the narrow interests of the superrich. Kushner is a dilettante heir to his father’s shady construction empire. Trump is … also that, but less intelligent than Kushner.
Trump has touted the voluntary efforts of businesses to crank out emergency supplies. But Trump appears to be getting his rosy information from the firms themselves. Production is not happening fast enough, or at a high enough level, to ensure hospitals will be protected. The Times reports that Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and other companies are producing respirator masks, the underwear masks “will be made of a three-ply underwear fabric, and do not provide the level of protection given by the N95 masks that health care workers need for intubation and other procedures.”
That isn’t the fault of the underwear-makers, who are dealing with the materials they have and trying to help. It does suggest that the administration’s policy of corporate voluntarism is being driven by the needs of business owners, not the public health.

We're all in this together and instead of complaining, you need to learn to pray and pray for the leadership.
All you do is complain and hate.

You did hear that, sadly it is a lie told by Trump, AKA Scumbago the clown.


It isn't a lie and Tesla has done the same thing.
Why don't you check stuff out before you start saying it's a lie?

Wrong as usual. Normally you aren't worth responding to, but I am responding to correct an utter falsehood. GM is in talks with Ventec Life Systems in Washington for about a week. They are offering their expertise in supply chains and production lines. It might be to difficult to reduce an automobile production line for a small device like that, but they are looking into it. So, Kevyn, as usual your statements are lies and not worth responding to.


No surprise there!!!

LogicallyRight, you are so correct. Some people just do not listen to anything but the left wing media.
