    I didn’t have a fever when I was laid up by Covid19. It was only after the haze of craziness had lifted that I realized what had been going on.

      What are you insinuating? Saying I was laid up by it was my way of saying I had it.

    • @Kevin Carter covid-19 is not the flu ffs

      @Kevin Carter I always forget that most people on the internet are expert medical professionals. So please tell us more about what your expertise has shown you?! Shall we call you Doctor Carter or “just some guy that knows the same as the rest ov us”?

      @PARK Where does it speak about this Rapture that is suppose to come? I never read about it in any legitimate texts, just the heretical version that had been changed in the King James mistranslation.

    No it is the media giving trump a platform and repeating and showing him over and over and over. They are his free advertising

      @Wyatt Ewing also animals that have been having trouble repopulating are indeed benefiting from the lack of humans looking at them

      Downright Dutch PJP2 was the last great pope. If the next isn’t more like him the church of Rome is toast- sadly. Lapsed Catholic because of the current pope

    • @Wyatt Ewing It’s kinda sad that the natural world gets so much better when humans aren’t outside as much or working. Makes sense though.

    I only came to mention how this guy looks like the Russian general from Modern Warfare.

    where’s the receipt for 2020 I want a refund

  6. The Who and CDC now recommend that we all wear blindfolds
    along with our masks to protect us from seeing what this is all about.

      I needed this laugh today but you have a valid point!!

    • Would rather wear blindfolds instead of injecting bleach into my veins,and stupidly–…I mean STUPIDLY take a malaria drug that doesn’t work for this disease…I do commend the asshat in office for leading by stupid example that people (you) will follow–….Then die….One.Can. Only. Hope!

      Haha!… A+ for originality.
      Some don’t even realize their being programmed to help destroy their own country & take away their very own rights with their social engineering. The flooding of the internet with their Cuomo worshipping & their fauxi idolizing. All the support they give to big government it must be that their blind deaf and dumb. They could never fathom that msm would ever tell a lie.

      @Tyre Hester they need class in general. Unfortunately, school is out. And the dumbing down of the nation is in full effect.

    • Tracey Rico | May 19, 2020 at 4:14 PM | Reply

      @Cleon P. you should look up what practicing doctors have had to say about the drug. They have had excellent results. I’d choose to take this early on if I had covid if it meant preventing me from becoming a ventilator patient. Have you heard the actual testimonies from the real practicing doctors? Or will you wait in line for your rushed vaccine? The vaccine that hasn’t been studied and tested properly, so who knows if it causes infertility, cancer, tumors, blindness, ect ect.. in the years to come. You can be the Guinea pig for the govt. I’d never allow myself or my family to be test dummies. But it is America so you do have the right to choose it if you want to.

    You can catch it while waiting for results so wtf

    • Orlando Tourist Traps | May 19, 2020 at 8:22 AM | Reply

      If you take HCQ you don’t even need a mask.

    • James Tyler | May 19, 2020 at 8:50 AM | Reply

      Orlando Tourist Traps You’re right, HCQ can be used as a vaccine. Dr Fauci even said this about SARS back in 2003-5. Idk why he’s now saying that it’s dangerous…strange.

    • @James Tyler Oh my god dude please cite your sources don’t just put words into his mouth. HCQ has been proved to cause heart problems and people died of complications no don’t use it just yet. You pretend you’re all about the truth and will cite the bible out of context but you can’t even cite anymore. Trump himself doesn’t even cite Dr Fauci he literally just said he had a bunch of phone calls with a random Dr he doesn’t know who says it’s okay. Do you think this is smart?

    • @James Tyler SARS and covid are not the same things. Similar, sure, but just because it helped with SARS does not mean that it will help with covid. Results have been mixed, and it can be very dangerous. So basically don’t use it.

    • James Tyler doh follow the money hcq is 50c remdesivir is 1000$ and he has stake in it

    Somebody wake me up this feels like I’m living in the book 1984

    • Kevin K. – Yeah get rid of this administration and elect the very system Orwell wrote the book about – great idea!!

    • Gregor Kropotkin – it will get more dystopian if you elect people who are openly dystopian- Hillary-Biden—Bernie-Elizabeth. I mean seriously??? Biden or Trump : which one will even live long enough to see the lasting/final outcome of the entire mess??? stop with your whacked ideas about relinquishing power. It’s likely the neither one has more then 10 years left between them.

      yes it seems the dems using all of this to control more people. like they been controlling the blacks and spanish types to vote for them with hand outs and give them nothing in return

    • Kevin K. Going to be a long four and a half for you

    • Gregor Kropotkin I’m sure you’ll be as correct as those fools that said the same about the last guy

  11. 2020 is what 2000 wanted to be

    All this is reveals the pathology of Americans as a “nation”.

  13. I don’t see a lot of comment on this aspect of the general insanity, but… if what’s going on keeps up much longer, the Navajo will soon no longer exist. All simply a part of this denial of reality indulged in by our government and about 40% of our populace. This country may not be toast yet, but it’s well on its way….
