America says, "Hold my beer! We got this!"

Please read.

The market will provide, always if we just let it and Americans are the most generous people I know.

Like this post says and I've been saying through this whole debacle

Hold my beer, we are Americans, we go this. :WUV:

"The reports are that the truckers are getting supplies to the stores. People are stocking the shelves all night and letting old people shop first. Carnival Cruise line told Trump “We can match those big Navy Hospital ships with some fully staffed cruise ships” GM said hold our cars and watch this; we can make those ventilators where we were making cars starting next week. Women and children are making homemade masks and handing out snacks to truckers. Restaurants and schools said, We’ve got kitchens and staff; we can feed kids.” Churches are holding on-line services and taking care of their members and community. NBA basketball players said, “Hold our basketballs while we write checks to pay the arena staff.” Construction companies said, “Here are some masks for the medical staff and doctors”. Breweries are making sanitizer out of the left-over ingredients. We thought we couldn’t live without Baseball, NASCAR, NBA or going to the beach, restaurants or a bar. Instead, we’re trying to keep those businesses open by ordering take-out.

You’ve got two Democrat Governors getting told “We will make it happen” by a Republican President who has fought with them for three and half years. While the media keeps repeating itself, “We are a nation divided.”

What communist China didn't count on was America saying "Hey, hold my beer and watch this."

I think a Japanese Admiral in the middle of the Pacific said it best in 1941, "I think we have awakened a sleeping giant."

Give us a few more weeks (maybe months) and we will be doing much better! And stop listening to the hysterical media!!

Sharing this from another FB friend We have wonderful country and an amazing God.

I know we will be ok .🇺🇸🙏🏻🙌🏻🙏🏻🇺🇸

There may be Many different views, Beliefs, races, religions, and even agendas on how this country should be run.

But when staring in the face of disaster or any type of trouble Americans always come together when it’s time to unite and fight against the common enemy, no matter who or what that enemy may be.

We do have an amazing country with amazing people in it.

And yes most of all we do have an amazing God As Well

God Bless America. God Bless everyone!

I truly hope this doesn't devolve to that level.

This post is about us as mankind and how much we can rock it.

I think this needs to be heard.

No need to move it if people can control themselves.

People are good and those I've encountered in the stores and what not have been very nice to one another.
A lot of people are patronizing the mom and pop restaurants here to keep them going. Today at lunch the owner of a place I frequent thanked a whole bunch of us for being there to grab lunch to go. There's two firemen down with the bug who responded to a medical call last weekend. People on FB are clamoring to help their families, bring them food, all sorts of stuff. Many good deeds being done.

The hoarders, well fuck them..LOL

I don't see any reason to move this thread either, nothing wrong with a feel good thread and wanting all Americans to come together to conquer this virus. The haters can make their own thread in the PF.

I feel like the people hoarding everything they can from the grocery store are a different species. A human like species that is actively regressing instead of evolving.

The rest of us are not of the same ilk.

Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has tested positive for coronavirus. The prince’s Clarence House office says the 71-year-old is showing mild symptoms of COVID-19 and is self-isolating at a royal estate in Scotland.
It says his wife Camilla has tested negative.
The palace says Charles “has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.”

Well if we move it, then those with different POV can proclaim:

"That's not true. We're totally screwed forever. And it's all Trumps fault."

But you are so right.

Not only have we come through and survived historically, but stubborn negativity is the main road to failure.


Great post.

Cheers

Really?? You're not helping. What part of no politics are you not comprehending. My finger is on the button to move it if you want to persist.

And that goes for anyone no matter the viewpoint. Applaud the American spirit, leave the rest of the bullshit out of it.

Just another reminder of how great humanity can be.

March 26 1953 Dr. Jonas Salk announces polio vaccine

https://www.history.com/this-day-in-...-polio-vaccine

Quote:
1953
March 26
Dr. Jonas Salk announces polio vaccine
On March 26, 1953, American medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announces on a national radio show that he has successfully tested a vaccine against poliomyelitis, the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio. In 1952—an epidemic year for polio—there were 58,000 new cases reported in the United States, and more than 3,000 died from the disease. For promising eventually to eradicate the disease, which is known as “infant paralysis” because it mainly affects children, Dr. Salk was celebrated as the great doctor-benefactor of his time.

Polio, a disease that has affected humanity throughout recorded history, attacks the nervous system and can cause varying degrees of paralysis. Since the virus is easily transmitted, epidemics were commonplace in the first decades of the 20th century. The first major polio epidemic in the United States occurred in Vermont in the summer of 1894, and by the 20th century thousands were affected every year. In the first decades of the 20th century, treatments were limited to quarantines and the infamous “iron lung,” a metal coffin-like contraption that aided respiration. Although children, and especially infants, were among the worst affected, adults were also often afflicted, including future president Franklin D. Roosevelt, who in 1921 was stricken with polio at the age of 39 and was left partially paralyzed. Roosevelt later transformed his estate in Warm Springs, Georgia, into a recovery retreat for polio victims and was instrumental in raising funds for polio-related research and the treatment of polio patients.

Salk, born in New York City in 1914, first conducted research on viruses in the 1930s when he was a medical student at New York University, and during World War II helped develop flu vaccines. In 1947, he became head of a research laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh and in 1948 was awarded a grant to study the polio virus and develop a possible vaccine. By 1950, he had an early version of his polio vaccine.

Salk’s procedure, first attempted unsuccessfully by American Maurice Brodie in the 1930s, was to kill several strains of the virus and then inject the benign viruses into a healthy person’s bloodstream. The person’s immune system would then create antibodies designed to resist future exposure to poliomyelitis. Salk conducted the first human trials on former polio patients and on himself and his family, and by 1953 was ready to announce his findings. This occurred on the CBS national radio network on the evening of March 25 and two days later in an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Salk became an immediate celebrity.

In 1954, clinical trials using the Salk vaccine and a placebo began on nearly two million American schoolchildren. In April 1955, it was announced that the vaccine was effective and safe, and a nationwide inoculation campaign began. Shortly thereafter, tragedy struck in the Western and mid-Western United States, when more than 200,000 people were injected with a defective vaccine manufactured at Cutter Laboratories of Berkeley, California. Thousands of polio cases were reported, 200 children were left paralyzed and 10 died.

The incident delayed production of the vaccine, but new polio cases dropped to under 6,000 in 1957, the first year after the vaccine was widely available. In 1962, an oral vaccine developed by Polish-American researcher Albert Sabin became available, greatly facilitating distribution of the polio vaccine. Today, there are just a handful of polio cases in the United States every year, and most of these are “imported” by Americans from developing nations where polio is still a problem. Among other honors, Jonas Salk was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977. He died in La Jolla, California, in 1995.
