I will say without a doubt that Army North is looking at staffing and possible makeshift hospital sites should DOD assets be needed to support states that are overwhelmed. ACE looked at 600+ makeshift hospital sites I think in March of last year.

Sad. It just shows you that the lockdowns and masks are not nearly as successful at preventing spread as they want you to believe. The solution is to get the vaccine out there ASAP. Check out Florida's vaccine roll out

LTC (Join to see) - Here's some BETTER SCIENCE for you:

Observing data from the experiment with CA having some of the most draconian lockdown rules, yet also having some of the highest rates of ingfection and deaths, we must conclude that their lockdown is not working - their hypothesis has not stood up to reality.

Perhaps this is due to factors that were ignored - in some cases deliberately - by CA's science-denying public officials, such as:

The impact of inequitable enforcement of "protective measures", where authorities have routinely tunred a blind eye to violations by people such as the Governor and other state officials, US Congressmembers, US Senators, members of the CA legislature, and their cronies, while focusing on punishing normal, working Californians.

The impracticality of the idea that quarantining the healhty, instead of following the historically proven method of quarantining the sick and those extremely likely to be sick.
The continued flow of illegal aliens into the state - people with no documentatiion - including no medical documentation or screening.

Ignoring the scientific fact that Coronavirus is less likely to be spread outdoors, where the density of viral particles dissipates quickly, by ordering people to stay inside.

Ignoring the fact that there is no evidence that the Coronavirus is more active or contagious at night, and instituting curfews that actually increase the spread of disease by forcing multiple shifts of workers to work at the same time, and force people to do essential transactions - such as grocery shopping - at times when the busiensses will be more congested. Instead of having the option to buy food at 2am, when there are very few other shoppers int he store, peopel are now forced to buy their food during limited hours, when the stores are more crowded.

Placing "political correctness" and political agendas over common sense - such as the actions of many Democrat politicians in CA, back at teh start of 2020, when the Coronavirus was limited to China, who shrilly accused the POTUS of racism and xenophobia when he wanted to quarantine China. These same Democrats - at a time when all cases were directly linked to peopel who had recently been in China, encouraged the public to attend events for the lunar new year, where many of those who had recently been to China would be present, accusing any who stayed away form such events of bveing "racists".

The continued practice of systemically racist "identity politics" driven actions and statements by the state government (and local governments), which not only fail to hold members of certainly ethnic groups accountable for failing to comply with standards, but also presents them as "victims" of the pandemic.

For example: When NPR's "California Report" recently reported that Latins, who make up just 15% of the population of SF, account for 50% of Covid cases and deaths, anmd then tries to make a case that "white people" are to blame for this, it is a perfect example of this type of racism. If the behaviors of members of the Latin community place them at greater risk, then that is the fault of members of that community making poor choices, and leaders of that community failing to lead. While the government and media likes to paint a picture of "anti-mask" people as being white (and often accusing them of being "poorly educated", "right wing", and "white supremacists"), the data shows that the places where infection spreads the most - where the standards of personal hygiene, social distancing, and mask-wearing are not being observed - are among black and Latin communities.

So, allowing actual science to be overridden by CA's illiberal leftist feelings has made things worse.

Allowing actual science to be overridden by CA's socialist/racist "progressive", faith-based belief system (aka "religion") has made things worse.

Allowing actual science to be overridden by political correctness and the desire to advance illiberal elftist and Democrat agendas has made things worse.

Allowing actual science to be overridden by junk science pushed by politically controlled "scientists" and politicians on the mainstream media and leftist controlled digital media has made things worse.

It's time to out these wannabe totalitarians as the science denying, dishonest, constitution-hating, rights denying, petty tyrants that they are.

We are long past the point where it is credible to claim that "intentions were good, based on limited information available at the time". We have reached the point where their corruption, science-denial, hypocrisy, and grasping for power over the people is blatantly obvious. It is time for speedy trails and prison time for these political hacks.


Curfews are anti-science, since science does not tell us that Coronavirus spreads more rapidly at night. What curfews do accomplish is to crowd more workers into day shofts, and crowd more customers into grocery stores at the same time. Remember when grocery stores were open 24-7, and you could avoid the crowds by shopping after midnight? Thus, curfews INCREASE the spread, and cause people to suffer and die.


Preventing people from being outdoors is anti-science, since science specifically tells us that we are less likely to catch, or spread, coronavirus outdoors than we are indoors. Thus "stay inside" orders INCREASE the spread, and cause people to suffer and die.


Science tells us that proper hygiene and social distancing are more important than wearing a mask - even an actual medically rated mask. Yet these science-deniers place more emphasis on wearing a mask - any crappy mask - than on hygiene or social distancing.

Science tells us that the Coronavirus doesn;t care about your political party affiliation, yet large groups are okay at a leftist/Democrat political function (rally, riot, protest, etc.) but not at churches or at Republican political functions.

Science tells us that alcohol kills viruses, yet closing bars is a priority of these science deniers - possibly because bars are a place where people talk politics.

These corrupt and dishonest politicians can't even keep their ridiculous mandates straight -

If masks protect us, then it doesn't matter if we gather - yet gatherings are banned/limited. Furthermore, politicians and their cronies violate the "safety" mandates with impunity.

You make some very good points SSgt Joseph Baptist

A lot of the recs by govt have been politically
Motivated with very little science. I say we use science and not politics to guide public health decisions.

I cannot respond to all you’ve said because it’s not in my lane and seems somewhat subjective but I respect your points.
