Dear Mr. President – April 2, 2020

Dear Mr. President,

I am exhausted. It’s now about 7:30 and you might still be talking; I don’t know, I quit awhile ago. We had a through the door visit with one grandchild and his parents. They are going on a “Bear Hunt”. Do you know that game? Anyhow, people are putting bears, penguins, other animals in their windows, porches and other places just for fun. Isn’t that a great idea? Do you have any more games or activities you did with your kids when they were young? Maybe the First Lady could tweet out some ideas. Parents are starting to realize that the jobs of working, parenting and teaching are long term, not temporary positions. Any ideas might be helpful.

Thanks to the Democrats, the 3rd bill to help with real time and real life economics, will start to get money to laid off workers and the small businesses. You have spoken about the “great American companies” that were doing “really really well” before the virus hit and they are also getting a boat load of help….Get it? A boat load of help for the cruise business. I guess that is okay but if they were doing so well don’t they have any money in their savings accounts?

The Admiral spoke about the supply chain problems and he seems to be on top of this. But then, we realized that the equipment and the product then goes on the open market. I think that may be part of the problem of actually getting the masks, gloves, gowns and other equipment into the hospitals. I think we (or at least me) were under the impression that the Defense Procurement Act would get the material both made and then delivered. It’s clear that the team is working hard, no one is sleeping, and they seem really competent. I mean that sincerely. I’m just really really sad that your administration didn’t start ramping up the effort to get supplies to hospitals about six weeks ago.

The last thing I want to thank you for is reminding us that this is not the time for politics. It’s a good message that you kind of blunted when the next sentence was about some witch hunts and the “people doing it are losing”. I don’t know who or what you are talking about but the first half of the comment (not the time for politics) was really good.

PS: It was nice to see Jarod. I don’t have a clue as to what he was talking about. He talks really fast so it was hard to catch everything he said. Maybe he has some ideas for games with children. Get some sleep.
