#1 Cutting off our pharma manufacturing supply chain during a pandemic is tantamount to an act of war.

This is the morass our elites have plunged us into. We are ruled by morons.

#2 We have set things up with shipbuilding so as to retain at least a moderate domestic capacity despite the radically lower costs in (e.g.) Korea. Seems like there should be something similar in other strategic industries - like medical supplies & drugs (other than opiates and meth - have plenty of access to those...)

#3  80% of drugs and vitamins come from China. This was a problem reported in 2018 and again in 2019. It is a security problem for the U.S. I hope as the result of POTUS' EO, things will speed up to bring this manufacturing back to the U.S.
