Tell that to the animal thugs your are in awe of. LSM is to blame!

Yet your network has not posted stats on Coronavirus for days

Well no shit

Lots of very sick people in the near future. This will tell scientists a lot about the spread of the virus.

Oh shut up

Frightening upon frightening

Which I why even though I believe in this cause, I stay my ass home regardless. Fight the good fight guys! 😅

Didn’t need an expert to tell me that one.

Where you posting this when the reopen radicals were protesting.

Don't let them get tested. Make them suffer

Be safe

They don’t care!!

Some things are worth the risk. This is, voting in November is, pool party in the Ozarks is not.

That is for sure. Multiple people may touch the same spot as an infected did. Some Infected people are so eager to spread virus.
