"If you're ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency"

We're dealing with an unprecedented global emergency. There's no point in blaming Trump or Pence for what they did or didn't do. No one else saw it coming. This is a global threat, a killer virus that did not exist in humans before four months ago.

Every nation in the world is facing the same kinds of challenges and shortages. Some are slightly better off at this stage, many are much worse. And let's knock off the myth someone else as president could do better. Consider how well President Obama and his team carried out the Obamacare roll-out. And that was a scheduled event.

Blame games are counter productive. If present trajectories hold, if countries like China or Italy are an example, things are going to get far worse here before they get better.

Everybody has to do his/her part to get ready, to take care of themselves as best they can. Get provisioned (I'd hope you already are).

Get off the streets. Stay at home. Do what you can to avoid becoming part of the problem.

Maybe the CDC was right in 2012 when it suggested people should watch episodes of the Walking Dead, especially early ones, to get a survival mindset. A survival mindset sure beats the whiny partisan blame game so many in media's attempting indoctrinating us with.
