Sort of like New York.

It's almost as if someone's playing favorites. And even if Donnie doesn't plan to return to NYC any time soon. Michigan never really stood a chance in Hells.

It wouldn't be because of a petty little fat man with a YUUUGE ego, would it?

The Impeached President said that the federal government isn't a shipping clerk.  Maybe they fired the guy that was a shipping clerk.

Somehow I expect the fed will have plenty available when north jesus pudnotch needs them.

It's because we have a fark'n arse in the White House who is willing to kill Americans to satisfy his own ego and political ambitions and most of America that can do something about it is just letting it happen because of their own ambitions, self interests, and now fear of the virus that Trump's policies and choices have brought on the country. This is him pulling the trigger in 5th Avenue and so far everyone is just standing by doing nothing about him (root of the problem) while scrambling to save as many people(leaves and branches) as they can.

I wish someone would let me do it because I'm getting really pissed off with how they are handling shiat and i'm about ready to choke some motherfarkers.

225k masks are now on the black market.

Because like with NJ and NY, they requested more than their ration and didn't get them, whereas states that asked for their number or fewer did get what they requested.

This is our fourth thread on this, and we're still chock full of raging morons who haven't grasped reality yet.

It's becoming tiresome.

New Mexico is requiring all clinics to submit inventories of PPE, because the tiny amount of supplies the state received from the Feds were old and improperly stored by the Feds.

Just look on eBay for someone selling masks located in the general area the original masks were supposed to ship from.  Bureaucracies are full of crooks.

After watching this administration in action over the past few years I'm going with Hanlon's razor.

cretinbob: Democrat governor


This.

He is going to let a lot of people die in Michigan just so he can spin it around and blame Democrats when things get really bad.

He is weaponizing the pandemic.

I guess they must have "fell off the truck"?

What's the market like for N95 masks these days?

Fark, where the headlines are made up and the articles don't matter!

FTA:
Michigan received two shipments of supplies from the U.S. national stockpile to aid the state's response to the novel coronavirus outbreak, though state officials say they got 225,000 fewer surgical masks than the federal government claimed to have sent.
"We inventoried the shipment shortly after it arrived and contacted them," Sutfin said. "We are still awaiting notification of shipment and estimated arrival."


They are missing the masks that were supposed to have shipped. A quarter million units - where did they go?

SNS was never meant to supply the whole nation. It was only ever meant to be a one-time shot that could help localized shortages during a surge of need in the interim while the affected area ordered its own to meet its needs. A nation wide need with global impact is way bigger than what SNS was designed for.
What is being distributed is 25% on population, 25% on active cases (remaining 50% held in reserve) and Michigan is low on both counts.  Mis-counting the delivery is a shipment/logistics/inventory error, but the overall number was nowhere near enough anyway.
 
2020-03-26 8:56:02 AM  
Has anyone checked Amazon or eBay for the missing masks?  Somewhere, an employee is getting nervous his cunning plan about selling off those masks for a profit.

I'm not familiar with Rep. Mitchell, but just from this article, he sounds like an obstructionist who would rather dig in his heels for the sake of partisan bs rather than set that shiat aside in a desperate emergency.  in the mindset that, however badly things go, it's who was governor when it happened that will be remembered and their party blamed.  I hope i'm wrong, because that would be seriously evil.
and no, it's not the same as saying, well, yer blaming trump just because it's happening on his 'watch', because: actions taken or not, lies told etc.  from what (little) I know, Whitmer is doing everything she can.  apparently it's bad here- I don't want it to turn into NY, and I don't know if that isn't all ready in the pike.

FTA: "Michigan should have received over 450,000 total surgical masks, but Sutfim confirmed that 226,498 masks were missing in the first shipment from the stockpile earlier this month.

Quid pro quo requires the Michigan governor to provide dirt on the Ukrainian president before the missing masks show up, or any realistic effort is made to proactively offer supplies.

Listen, you're not helping those still having a Hillary Hangover.

They received the shipment on March 5, and just now got around to mentioning that half the shipment of masks was missing?

In Detroit?

And, by the way, the National Guard just took over distributing medical supplies.

It's almost like they figured out who took the first batch of masks, and haven't gotten around to arresting them yet.
 
2020-03-26 9:49:00 AM  
If they FedEx'd those masks then I'm sure they were delivered, just to a neighbor or someone else because the driver couldn't find Michigan and decided the house across town or something was close enough.

Historically, one would look in a city councilperson's house.

I can't help but wonder if they arrived and disappeared in the 3 weeks between then and now.

They received an invoice that *said* they were there.  But they weren't.

Quit with the bullshiat, get with the program.
