    There is virtually no arm of the federal government left that exists in as extensive a form as with presidents like Obama or even Reagan with all the recent cuts. So I'm not sure where all this red tape symptomatic of bureaucracy is that you claim is getting in the way of a response by the states. At this point, I'd wager states are increasingly wondering what the point of "AMERICA" is as an idea when they have to do all the heavy lifting.

    If anything this crisis may start to beg the question about whether this country and its people would be better off dividing into 3-4 separate countries. The federal government is corrupt, ineffective, and lacking in any care for the individual states. I'm just not sure what the upside is of these 50 states (as well as territories) being under the same umbrella when that umbrella is becoming more frequently a threat to the safety of the states than any foreign power.

    Correction. Massachusetts paid for it at cost, half price. Kraft used his plane to go get the masks.

    Split the entire west coast off from where the left side of Texas ends.

    Wasn’t a stunt. Baker specifically involved the NE private plane to keep the masks out of the feds’ dirty hands and prevent them from stealing the masks like they did the last time MA had masks shipped to the US.

    Kraft also bought the 300,000 masks to give to New York. Massachusetts couldn’t spend their state money on those.

    I am super happy about Mr.Kraft for doing everything he can to help. We need all the owners to help.

    Not a good idea. For a lot of reasons. Would have added a lot more red tape to an exercise Kraft already describes as the most difficult thing they’ve ever done. Plus it would have caused delay, finding a plane and scheduling it takes time while Kraft can have his plane ready to launch pretty much as soon as they decide to go. I wouldn’t be surprised if Air Kraft One were already on the way to Anchorage before they had the paperwork clearing them into China. That wouldn’t happen with a charter. Plus using the Patriots plane generates goodwill and positive marketing exposure that a charter wouldn’t.

    If you didn’t then what makes you think it belongs on a Peatriots board, in a thread about the Krafts’ airplane?

    I thought people would recognize sarcasm. I guess not.

    Sorry, had just seen the post before yours, that you responded to, and it blinded my sarcasm detector.

    Probably a lot less than $9k an hour in the last month, since the price of jet fuel has plummeted with the grounding of most flights and Saudi-Russia price war drowning the market.

    Sometimes the "right thing to do" is also a 'smart thing to do." Sort of the definition of "Win-Win."

    Who knows when the fuel was purchased? Be that as it may, I doubt the Chinese gave him a discount on the cost of refueling for the return flight. :)

    As I recall the one in the secure zone for Transit Passengers is a Grizzly Bear. There might be a Polar Bear somewhere else in the airport though.

    Who knows? But the media reports are that he put up $2 mill for the masks in addition to the cost of the flight.

    Awesome gesture by Kraft. No good deed goes unpunished...well unless you're Jemele Hill of course
