    • You do everything people tell you to do? What’s next? Telling you where you can work? 🙄 No thanks.

    • @The Unnamed cousin thanks for the check. This whole thing is just…bs. it’s taken my job, again, kids back outta school, unemployment ran out, I’m just done with this corona crap. And I apologized to the other lady just so you know. Never been in a situation with nothing so not sure how to be right now. 😔

    People going to do what they wants to do American people don’t really care some of us don’t they seem people of congress don’t care about the people’s trying to get out of the house they’re scared but they don’t want to be locked down they also see that no one’s trying to help them get stimulus and no one cared Joe Biden don’t care Nancy Pelosi don’t care which McConnell don’t care so they’re getting the best out of Thanksgiving it’s not a good idea to travel for Thanksgiving together like this .you can’t keep them down because you’re not helping with stimulus and they got to keep working .the Nancy Pelosi the Joe Biden and mitch McConnell needs to get a bill signed the problem solvers bill was a stimulus bill the people need it the Democrats and Republicans signed the bill and Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t sign on that bill she the problem and she dont get it she playing with the people future in her hands and her talk is cheap. Nancy Pelosi is all her fault she doesn’t represent all the American people hey Nancy Pelosi why don’t you ask the American people what they want and they will tell you to sign a bill for they can get some kind of help and stay off of television can you get a bill signed because people are getting tired of looking at you ain’t doing nothing to help the American people and trying to make excuses with you not doing a damn thing

    So no vaccine , I knew we were gonna remain locked in for a while longer, but that’s like giving hopes to my love ones ain’t it?
    So just say “we just don’t want to compromise your health ”
    And because I love you (whomever it is Mom , Dad, Grandma etc)
    Tell them you love them and we are in this together ❤
