    It will never go away since so many idiots remain gathering and socializing.

      @Sandro A People with healthy immune systems are still getting it, THERE IS NO IMMUNITY FROM THIS. 15% of people who were HOSPITALIZED and critically ill but got better and tested NEGATIVE for the virus are now getting reinfected. How is this so hard to understand???

    • @NinjaRider777R I think you are not getting it. If you have a healthy immune system you will get it but not die. The media has you scared. I will recommend you to look at the data and literature.

    • NTL WU05 I’ve never compared it to Florida. I don’t know where you got that info. However, regardless if a place with 50 people or Florida has business still open, it does not matter. One person can infect many. My point of bringing a shul open is that people still don’t take it seriously. A Florida pastor still had a mass of a hundred people over the weekend. People don’t take it seriously until it happens to them.

      @The Orange Pekoe Teabag Band Even if the Democrats were to win the presidential election, do you seriously think any of that will happen without a fight? In order for your little fantasy to play out, it would require the majority of military and law enforcement being willing to round up people they’re sworn to defend, and in many cases their own friends and relatives. This isn’t China or any of the other communist dictatorships you admire so much where the military and law enforcement serve the government. Here they serve the people, and they’ll never comply with those kinds of orders. Go ahead and try rounding up Trump up so you can be shot. The most you can hope for is that the media will make you a martyr and a victim of gun violence, maybe hold a candlelight vigil where radical leftist communists like yourself sing Imagine.

      On my channel! Cheer up, bro!

      It will not end too soon
      if all people do what they are told
      Like social distancing
      It will lower the curve
      To stop increasing the number of cases of the virus

    FL gov is on crack 😂

  5. I have a feeling Florida will reach the number one spot. That’s how Italy was acting when they were told to quarantine and they didn’t listen.

    • @Emerald Morgan false ,this virus is no different than the common flu . Over sensationalized by media and Government for a different agenda. The pandemic is only on your screens

      Then you have greedy corporations paying politicians to let them stay open. Fast food should be completely shut down. And they need to pay anyone still working hazard pay. And the hazard pay should be modeled after the representatives model from Ohio.

      @Connie Plum do you know how easy it is to practice “social distancing” on a golf course? Ive never golfed in my life but atleast its a safe option i cant take my kids to play ball at the park maybe well golf tomorrow.

    • Greg Rando don’t be ignorant. So your saying China, Italy, Iran, and the rest of the country’s are all creating a hoax ? You sound stupid, you been watching too many conspiracy videos. I bet you believe in flat earth, you sound like one of them.

    • The first places the virus hit 1000 cases was China, then Iran, then Italy/Spain, then USA.
      When it’s under control military intelligence needs to investigate and go into Iran and Wuhan, as well as Italy. Iran is a key link as the 2nd to have a surge in numbers.

      @D E maybe, maybe not. Maybe, whomever is left after this should still wear masks, even if gma made them, bc it would impede the flu. Not even saying I make it to the other side of this, but if there are other conditions to consider, maybe someone should..

    This is going to bite deeper than most can imagine. It is as unfathomable as exponential growth, or the trillions of dollars to be used to bail out big corporations. We need a huge reset when this is over.

    • big corporate “bailouts” will be saving jobs for the little guy. The fat cats you probably hate either took it on the chin in asset depreciation or fiscally insulated themselves already against the downturn. The fact is through raiding social security and our deficit spending on foreign and domestic welfare for fifty years, with paltry return on that “investment”, means we spent our rainy day fund (good faith and credit) years ago and now the rainy day is upon us. Crap, you don’t get a “huge reset” unless the currency is devalued and that would be ugly beyond belief.

    • @may wilson The electoral college is THE BIGGEST non-judicial protection for the First Amendment that exists; the most populous places tend to have the most draconian governments; more pastoral communities do not care for such restrictive lifestyles. Why would one want to undermine the First Amendment? The question is rhetorical; I well understand many only want freedom for those who will conform, they care nothing for the freedom of those from other cultures.

      @Itz Cyclops Err explain why it gave Umerica Trump then?

    • Thomas Dailey | April 1, 2020 at 3:12 AM | Reply

      @Itz Cyclops How about a proportional electoral college? A system where if a state has 10 electoral votes, a candidate that wins 60% of the vote doesn’t get all 10 electoral votes. They get 6 and the rest are divided among the other candidates based on their vote percentage. California has 55 electoral votes which go to Democrats, but not all Californians vote Democrat.

      @Kiera Holmes Who said that, do you have a source? Immigrants should learn English in general.

    • Terry Martin | April 2, 2020 at 5:39 PM | Reply

      @Kiera Holmes If that was true, you’d be able to say who said that to you, when was it said and where. but it’s most likely just propaganda from a news program that has been circulated.

      Speaking English is probably a requirement for passing a test for citizenship, a certain level of basic English, which is pretty reasonable, most immigrants want to be able to speak English.

    • Kiera Holmes | April 6, 2020 at 8:56 AM | Reply

      @Terry Martin * most likely just propaganda from a news program that has been circulated.* LOL boy please. Most people who seek higher knowledge will actually do the research themselves; especially if they are the ones doubting everything that is being said to them. *most immigrants want to be able to speak English.* Wanting to speak English an then getting belittled when you speak your native tongue; are two complete different things. The fact that he can barely speak English but most immigrants can talk proper English better than him; is laughable at best. It’s really sad but i laugh to keep from crying.

    • Terry Martin | April 6, 2020 at 5:52 PM | Reply

      @Kiera Holmes Let’s say, if you’re speaking Spanish, you are probably speaking Spanish to another Spanish speaking person. So a third party is not going to have any business to stop people from speaking Spanish.

      To be more specific, are you talking about 2 Spanish speaking people who might work at Costco “or wherever.” And while on the clock, the employees and managers don’t want them speaking Spanish while at work?

      Or where and when is speaking Spanish somehow not allowed.

    • Terry Martin | April 6, 2020 at 6:04 PM | Reply

      @Kiera Holmes Yeah, I just assume any immigrant is going to learn basic English pretty quick, just out of necessity. I live in a pretty rural town and I hear people speaking Spanish all the time at businesses, no one cares at all. Umm, I’m just not sure where people are enforcing English.

      I think it depends what environment people are in, there’s so many abusive people that hold some sort of position, be it a manager or something remedial like that.

    Albert Einstein stated best, ““Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.” As long as stupid people exist, pandemics like the coronavirus will persists.

    • Right, and by looking at the numbers the U.S. rates as #1 in stupidity.

    • Juci Shockwave the stupid people are being fed a constant diet of misinformation from CNN and msnbc. And they actually believe it. This is an overblown media driven crisis spectacularized by leftwing media terrorists. Trump is doing a fantastic job which is why his approval rating is over 60% and the FAKE NEWS can’t Stand it!

      @Hawk Daddy Exactly. I like that you call these radical leftists terrorists. That is a very necessary term, because propaganda and intentional lies can be a direct terrorist threat. Good term. We are seeing a lot of riders added on to the shut down, like closing recreational fishing. They will try and add riders to their own personal agenda.

    I can assure you one thing, there is no need to watch Trump’s rambling Corona virus press briefings. He makes it about himself, and his gut feelings.

  16. To the person that reads this, I ask the Lord to bless them and their family, to cure them of every sickness and pain, to fill their emptiness with love joy and peace, to rebuke the enemy from their lives. ” ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND SAVE YOU, AND TO FORGIVE YOU OF YOUR SINS, FOR WE GIVE THANKS AND GLORY TO THE LORD. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AMEN!

      God created everything, including all viruses. A virus is one of gods creations.Please explain? Why should god favour man over virus? Mankind is killing the planet, a virus is cleansing the planet. Perhaps there is a god.

      @alanrtment porter I’m no expert but I believe God loves all man and sometimes he may allow bad things like viruses because of man embracing sin
