When the Federal and local government take over say the Alamodome and the AT&T Center then we’d have a really serious problem. Meanwhile Elnina makes a good point and US citizens should be brought back to the US.

Inflated idea? That's funny.



"Despite recently closing hundreds of bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States still maintains nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad"

What exactly is a quarantine? It is the isolation of people who *potentially* have a contagious disease from being around other people in order to prevent spread of the disease. Correct? You have any issue with that? So to that effect, it would seem prudent to not have those isolated people near major population centers. And the plan to remove those who display symptoms from military base isolation and send them to civilian hospitals for treatment sounds downright mad.

The vast majority of these “bases” are nothing more than small camps and outposts. The majority make Camp Bullis seem like a major city. Prior to my retirement I was the head of the Army’s Real Property Inventory Branch in the Pentagon and maintained the worldwide inventory computer system.

Sounds like just the kind of place to send potentially contagious people.

Well you didn’t get your wish. There’s a plane apparently in the air and scheduled to land this morning with evacuees from China. I haven’t heard the exact number on board but supposedly Lackland AFB can handle 250 evacuees in private accommodations and up to 1,000 in less private group accommodations.

I'm shocked. I thought the Pentagon had me on speed dial and ran all major decisions by me.

Apparently the plane supposedly coming to Lackland AFB this morning stopped and unloaded its passengers at Travis AFB. Latest is the plane scheduled for here hasn’t left China yet and won’t arrive until Friday or Saturday.
