    Russia sends 60 TONS of medical supplies to the US

    That is the thread I posted about this on April 2.

    Unfortunately, instead of being happy that life saving supplies were being made available, several posters were willing to look a gift horse in the mouth. I can assure you that not one person who was helped by this did so.

    You have to remember how these people play. Putin is good when they can use him against our country, and Putin is very bad when he helps our country.

    Russia, with a GDP lower than that of the State of California, is able to send medical supplies to the United States. Meanwhile, the only way our astronauts can get into space is by riding a Russian rocket.

    This 51 years after we won the space race.

    I really am not sure what we should conclude from that, but it doesn't mean we want the Russians to participate in any more elections.

    But, we should accept their gift in with good grace. I'm sure we'll pay it forward in time.
    The above post is a reflection of my great and unmatched wisdom. Please revere it.

    Indeed -

    RUSSIA "We see that the people of the United States of America are suffering so, while we are ramping up our production of needed supplies so that we can meet out own demands, we are sharing, without any cost to the recipients, what we have to help them out."

    CHINA "We see that the people of the United States of America are suffering so, while we are ramping up our production of needed supplies so that we can meet out own demands, we are sharing, without any cost to the recipients, what we have to help them out."

    DONALD TRUMP "The people of the United States of America are suffering (for which I take no responsibility) from what I always said was likely to be a major attack of disease (for which I take no responsibility) that would have a huge negative effect on the US economy (for which I take no responsibility), so that means that I am ramping up production of needed supplies but am forbidding American firms (and individuals) from sending anything that we might need to any other country and cancelling all existing contracts which would send any needed supplies to other countries."

    And the world will notice the difference.

    PS - It doesn't matter if the Russian and Chinese statements are true, because what matters is what people think is true.
