I would not fly now even if the tickets were free. Americans naturally don’t like to be told what to do, even for their own good. Because we don’t care about your crap. People die ever year from something. Where is your story fighting to stop the sale of cigarettes since 480,000 people die every year? Maybe it’s because of their love for family, their desire to officially praise God for their blessings, and the greater than 99% survivabilty rate.
Ah...... Some Americans, they live by stupidity, and their stupidity unfortunately kills people. Let us all stay home, and wait until next year when we can all be Thankful. 2021, just around the corner. 'Stay calm and don't spread.' 🤪 Lack of common sense is serious problem with dealing with the pandemic. I’m not going anywhere this Thanksgiving, better safe than sorry.
If only we could keep them away from decent, intelligent people, I'd be happy to see the ignorant morons culled from our population. Americans don’t fucking listen Stupid warnings.... How could curative measures be Deadlier that the DISEASE itself. What exactly is happening ...News media with their whole Propaganda....1million deaths my foot....where are they Buried! What exactly is this world turning Into?
Give this small business a retweet purchase or shout - out. Please maskup and if youre going to wearamask ... make it ours. coronavirus is real. You can find us here.. NO ONE CARES ANYMORE. 99.8% survivalable.
