Sure wish you two kids would grow up.


Ouchie, Bernard, you meanie head. Pack sand.






At work we have now had 7 cases. Each one up till the last, which is unknown right now, have had 2-3 positives then a negative and blood work showed negative. The sad part, each positive counts as a case even though it was only 6 folks that were negative but state counts show 17 positive cases when there was only 6 negatives in the end. This is such a scam!!!!

@jake277 - So, you are a conspiracy theorist, aye? I mean, the Left tells us that what you are saying just isn't true... [rolleyes]


How many of these deaths are actually from the corona virus?


Good question. Because hospitals receive money for each chinese virus "diagnosis", the number will definitely be skewed.


That"s why the numbers are so high.
