nice is no longer important

@the real JohnQPublic

I know a sure fire way to drive the numbers down and flatten the curve right down to zero.

Are you ready?

Just stop testing and/or getting tested. That is a surefire way to drive the cases down.

Yesterday, Michael Caputo, the assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services who has tried to dictate how the scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report on coronavirus, went on an unhinged rant in a video on Facebook, accusing the CDC of having a “resistance unit” of “seditious” scientists who were permitting Americans to die so they could harm Trump’s reelection campaign.

Caputo noted that the pressure of his job had harmed his physical health, and his “mental health has definitely failed.” After his video had been viewed more than 850 times, Caputo shut down his account.

It's a virus, it doesn't care what you think, what the government thinks, what the health department says.--- It's a virus, wash your nasty hands and cover your cough and sneeze, keep your dirty paws off your face.

Anybody know how to act during flu season?

I do...I have Asthma. I wear the mask. Some get the Flu shot.

Obey Your Master

Meanwhile in Indonesia, citizens refusing to wear face masks have been forced to dig graves for victims of the coronavirus pandemic.

The anti-maskers are only performing the manual labor of digging graves and preparing the area to support caskets. The handling of the bodies of coronavirus victims is still done by public health officials wearing full-body protective gear.

What the US will do with Trump anti-maskers being collected in a national database has yet to be determined. Seizure of assets to pay for the cost of the pandemic was on the table until someone realized most of them don't have a pot to piss in.

Meanwhile in Indonesia, no one gives a shit. Most pro Trumpers are Republicans, which means they’re blue collar workers with jobs, or people running their own companies. Not having a pot to piss in isnt the MO of the Republican Party. The Dems are the hand out party. Once again, everything you post is moronic drivel that falls flat on its face.

@the real JohnQPublic

We should all thank Trump for protecting our freedoms. No one should be punished for not wearing a mask.

Feel the same way about restaurants or the like that don't require employees to wash their hands or keep food at safe temperatures?

@the real JohnQPublic

and we're back to 1% of the county having the covid. Is it even real?

Getrealman

Probably fake but lets get a Covid patient to sneeze on your face to face to fact check it!

@the real JohnQPublic

Well that's not very nice of you, is it?

I caused these deaths, not the virus.
