Many companies that are that they just don’t like to tell the truth or they just don’t want to hear it seeing it looking at understanding because they’re not ready for because they don’t have it back up it’s just like many people like to live in a fantasy world and many people wanted to live a reality world to understand listening and carefully and to pass it on. We’re not going to be happening again but you can tell a difference

      @Bud Fudlacker xenophobic you mean like drumpffuhrer screaming about not existant caravans
      You mean discrimination against blacks in his housing
      Mocking disabled
      Running from wounded veterans
      Lying to soldiers, calling dead soldiers losers

    • @thewanderandhiscomp I’d say just ignore the guy but then he’d probably go on a shooting spree.

      @Emsley Wyatt or bomb a youth center

  5. This is why at the top of every Republicans list is liability protection for covid-19 caused illness and death. Life is pretty cheap when put next to money.

  6. I thought donny was a tough guy? Avoids war brokers deals and follows orders from the meat industry just what what a commander in queef

  7. $29,000 for 200+ deaths!!?? Wow! I didn’t know Americans’ life was this worthless.

    • Scientific American says, “Vote Biden, to save America.” Literally. Never before have they gotten into politics! In 140+ YEARS of its existence! Come on, America? It’s SCIENCE now.

    • To add insult to the injury, they are fighting the citations.

  8. So its 1500 for an American soldier and 1000 for a civilian. Being sold out by your own government.

  9. Scientific American says, “Vote Biden, to save America.” Literally. Never before have they gotten into politics! In 140+ YEARS of its existence! Come on, America? It’s SCIENCE now.

    I worked for smithfield in grayson kentucky, and yea sounds about right on.

  11. Trump and his administration have made it clear that they are willing to sacrifice American lives for political gain.

  12. Should Donald Trump ever get the Nobel Prize, which I don’t believe, then Pablo Escobar can also be nominated and won because he supported the people in his country with money that came from drug sales! Donald Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Prize is just another bought scam! Donald Trump should be condemned for his behavior with Covid-19, his environmental destruction and many other things right after the presidency!

    • For a Nobel Peace Prize nomination alone, the barrier to entry is low. Adolf Hitler was nominated for the peace prize in 1939 by a member of the Swedish parliament. Reportedly submitted in satire, the nomination was withdrawn soon after. A few years later, the Soviet leader Josef Stalin was nominated for the same award, twice, garnering nods in 1945 and again in 1948.

  13. The fine comes to $0.68 for each infection OR $142.87 per death or some combination of those sums. Of course, not one penny of that goes to the actual victims or their families. It is likely that the meat packing robber barons did not charge the government for writing the executive order mandating their continued homicidal operations.

  14. The United States is the most divided it has ever been. There are now two group polarized people in the US. There are now Americans and trump’s cult. The difference between the two:

    trump’s cult characteristics:
    Anti-science.
    QAnnon believers.
    Systemic racism deniers.
    Covid-19 deniers and conspiracy believers.
    Pro violence and inciting a civil war between the two groups.
    Anti Free media.
    Anti Climate Change.
    They hold trump like an authoritarian figure.

    Americans:
    Normal people that is questioning their sanity because they can’t comprehend how the other side blindly follow the cult.

  15. Now 200 tsd virus death victims killed through Donny the nobrainer and his herd mentality Do. Trump: It is what it is

  16. The Value of American Lives has
    Drastically Declined under Trump
    Presidency……😏

  17. In the US, the mighty dollar always wins.

  18. Trump is like another American icon. The pumpkin. He’s orange, hollow, and in the trash come November.

    Don the Con mustn’t know that Smithfield is owned by Chi-na or he’d of shut them down.

  20. Well we don’t want “Fat Donny” to go without his precious Big Macs!
