    Michigan's starting to tank.

    I don't have time to dig up cites for you. Both have admitted to providing false information. Trump has not convinced me of anything. He is a blow hard New Yorker who exaggerates everything from the size of his hands to the size of crowds and much more. But Birx is no better. She specifically said that she has instructed I spoke at length with a doctor about keeping up with current information about a year ago. It was one of the best conversations I have had with any medical professional. He was a doc in a box and I was there for a sinus infection. His specialty was pediatrics. Long story short, he spends at least five hours a day trying to stay current. I get it. It is difficult. The doctors and technicians in the labs are not the people releasing the numbers, or even deciding what numbers to count. I have to get back to work now..

    I suggest we learn to actually count. With the US slipping in ranking in math of the past several decades it is not surprising that we cannot accurately count the number of actual cases.

    Western Europe is ahead of us on the curve. Brazil is behind us. India is overpopulated. None of the above are reporting as many false positives as we are. Hell, The CDC so far will not release the number of flue deaths this year. Wonder why? The simple truth is New York, has more deaths alone than most if not all European countries. Outside of New York, New Jersey, and the surrounding area, the US is not at all in bad shape.

    Name one politician that has been right about everything. It is easy to throw stones. Are you forgetting Pelosi's party in Chinatown? What about the apparent BLM protester's immunity? I'm sure the resounding success of New York measured by deaths puts them in a position to tell everyone else what to do, even if it is after the fact. We have been told that masks are good and we have been told that masks are bad, by the same experts, as in multiple experts from multiple organizations. I'm sorry but washing hands and wearing masks alone are not the answer. Sure they both help. But if you walk around you will see people wearing masks like hiphop fans wear pants. But by george they are wearing the mask. Further, the quality of masks and the protection offered varies greatly. I am not saying that they do no good, they do. The question is how much good, and are they trustworthy. How is it that a meeting at work is a terrible danger, yet it is perfectly fine to protest or go to Walmart. There are so many double standards from so many sources that blaming any single person is ridiculous. I have personally watched a startup company with promise now teetering on failure. I watched a manufacturing plant lay off 400 people due to this thing. We have seen the CDC, the WHO and others purposely falsify reports, get caught then issue more reports. And people choose to believe them. The latest is in Florida, where the state is reporting exaggerated numbers of positive tests. They got caught; how many have not been caught? Those agencies may have scientists working for them, but the bureaucrats are controlling the information leaving those agencies. And somehow the president is responsible because he does not wear a mask in a protected environment? I'm not a huge fan of Trump, but you people are watching way too much CNN, FOX, MSNBC and you quit thinking for yourselves years ago. This boils down to culture, the economy and nature. The virus will spread. That is its nature. The big question is how much are we willing to risk in order to keep from failing financially. The bigger question, one that we have no answer too, is exactly what is the risk?

    One of the best Robotics guys I have worked with is Mexican. He certainly is in support that allows better educational opportunities for anyone willing to do the work, not just Latinos.

    Thanks, but it is electricians, not engineers. I work in an engineering group, but my formal training is in education and electrical work. Good to see you again Mike. We are still working on the project I contacted you about. The product is in final testing and we are ramping up for production. I had to switch PLC's to a European brand that handles residential control much better. Fun stuff. The Covid thingy has set us back about six months in production time now. One of my contacts is stuck and can't get back to the US.

    I'm not sure what Selfridge is/was. Before teaching, my dad was a tool and die maker for Chrysler. We moved South to get away from the downfall of Detroit. I still have a great deal of friends and family in that area. I fell in love with sailing on Lake Erie, on the Canadian side. My Grandmother was Canadian.

    BTW what does 16 Mile Road look like now? When I lived there it was mostly pastures. We had horses and hunted pheasants out back.

    NYC...

    Generally spending more on prisons than on schools is a bad idea. In my personal view, allowing either to decide exactly how that money is spent is a worse decision. Neither have the acumen to properly maintain the institutions they run. Prison wardens will take the approach you accuse me of. School administrators simply lack the ability to understand reality beyond the classroom. I have seen terrible abuse and misuse in both cases. I saw $100K of equipment thrown into a trash heap just yesterday at a college. Sorry for the delay, I do have work going on too.

    So do you arm the social workers? How much authority will they be given? Will their mission be to take every firearm they find? How much more do you think a Ph.D in psychiatry going to demand to do that work? Where is that money coming from? Maybe all those degrees in X studies, that can't seem to get a job anywhere else could step up to the plate? Then cut the police force by how many? because the cops that handle domestic violence are the same cops that handle a myriad of other calls shift to shift. Who would you suggest to handle the roaming thugs, (peaceful protesters) who are burning buildings and defacing property when they are not looting? How many violent criminals should be released? After all, that is the current trend. I'm sure most cops would be pleased in not having to answer domestic violence calls. Those are never a good situation and result in a lot of cops being killed. So your Dr. will assume that risk as part of his/her work, oh yeah, on a 24/7 basis, because bad actors usually don't abide by office hours. Finally, during a call to say a robbery, if the cop discovers that the perpetrator is high on drugs, does the cop stop the arrest and call your expert? That'll go over well.
