    I'd be happy to help but I don't quite understand the problem. What does Google have to do with this site? You just bookmark this link or you remember http://www.the-new-coffee-room.club

    @jon-nyc said in "This (virus) is not something the citizens of the US need to be worried about.":

    What’s interesting is that the current right wing effort to discredit Fauci, which no doubt is the source of these clips, is ultimately motivated by a concern that he’s championing too strong a reaction.

    The effort aligns his position more closely to Mr Trump’s

    Therefore it is credit, not discredit

    @mark YEAH, so the federal government should pull them out of their ass... Tada, magic ass ventilators... Don’t hand me that bull. There’s been no one on this forum more against wasteful government spending and taxation than you. And having 30K ventilators in the national stockpile would have seemed wasteful. Hell, it still does

    There's a lot of TADA! wishful hindsight among many people who know how government works, and are projecting some alternate reality about how fast government can move within our federal system.

    Shucks, Hitler and Stalin bitched about people in their government not moving or producing fast enough...And they executed people to help speed things along...

    @Jolly At this point we are forced to assume those people are commie spies.

    That sounds about right.

    Definitely. The carriers would be a hell of a lot easier to get around on a two lane road than those box trucks.

    The problem is that the USPS carries a lot of packages. May need a separate carrier for those.

    They'd have to be COVID-19 free. I'm not sure I want a coked-up operator at a nuclear plant.

    I think there’s much we could do in the direction of his medical response. If not actually go as far as he says.

    It might just be that China does something akin to what he’s suggesting for vaccine testing and will be rolling out a global solution while the FDA are still filling out all their forms.

    I've said this before, but the FDA is laboring under antiquated laws mandating near-perfection. Yep, we change things and we may get another thalidomide debacle, but I'll trade those problems for some nimbleness and common sense.

    @LuFins-Dad said in Time to fire up the grill:

    How do we insert photos? Do I have to go back to hosting on a site and linking?

    To save space on the server, yes.

    It's possible to put pics here directly, but they will start taking up space and we'll have to upgrade to a larger server, if I understand correctly.

    Remember the "good" old days when you couldn't hotlink a picture.

    Good times.

    Don’t worry about this too much. If space becomes an issue I can presumably just delete images but keep the posts.
