The Liberal commentary cockroach infestation prevalent here today. They swarm like hornets upon the command of their CCP masters attempting to populate commentary such as to be perceived as the prevailing opinion. Useful Idiots and future organ donors.


John Q is not one of the more competent people who response here.

The again maybe he is just a incompetent.

Daves not here

It's surprising that people believe that COVID19 is a government conspiracy but the numbers prove that it isn't so when people don't follow the rules of staying 6 feet apart, wear masks and wash your hands the numbers will continue to rise. It's a shame because people could help control the Virus and they don't, hopefully you will take it for real before you become the next victim of this dreaded disease!


There is no law which you have to ware a mask its better to breath fresh air so your ammunition system get use to it. As for the mask I think it became a fashion statement so stop being a germofobick.

Oh Really

Wow. That's some skewed thinking. A fashion statement? Guess my seatbelt in my car is a fashion statement too then.


Got to admit.. It's hard to argue stoopid!
