Seriously need to think about closing KCPS. I don't think anybody would notice.

Even though it's the only thing you really need. Nobody is stockpiling booze. Weird.

^^^ +100

Alternative therapy for no toilet paper?

Quinton was late on this, should have been done on Monday. This is just the mayor being wish-washy and probably making things worse.

^^Fuck off, shithead. Go pick those deep boogers out of your nose.

Q IS THE MAN!!

Agree that Q did the right thing. Maybe the deep boogers might be a bit "much" but I think the mayor is doing the best thing to protect the health of Kansas City.

So crowds of less than 1,000 will not spread the virus. Very interesting.

Q acted before Trump.

Trump's administration still hasn't issued any closure guidance or directives. Nada. Nothing.

Companies, states and localities are left to make their own decisions within the national vacuum.

What happens if the police catch it?

Trump is literally asleep in the oval office you guys, and his evil lookalike robot companion is fucking everything up! Panic right now people!!

"non-essential travel", does that mean no filling pot holes in the city.

The Democrat Party-media are extremely sick. Anyone have a vaccine for them? A little bit of newsworthy, substantive, informative reporting would be very helpful to the American people.

7:04 won’t be upset unless the death count doesn’t beat bama and obidens kill record for h1n1 of over 15,000, he’s been waiting for a very long time for this, praying that bama’s record can be beat so he can feel better about his poor choices in life. That’s sick right there.

@7:10 Nobody’s talking about H1N1 Boomer, try to focus here. This is COVID-19 and it’s 2020. As a side note if it manages to put worthless Boomers like you in the process, all the better!

With a stroke of a pen, civil liberties die in Kansas City.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble"

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Benjamin Franklin

Geez- I might be the last guy to be the voice of reason. I'm ashamed of all the hateful crap I posted, but I still wonder if that's what was needed and if I'm right. So much here seems to be a personal fight betwixt two or three avenge laden warriors, when all I wanna say is that I believe most of the of the animus comes from those whose pride will never let them admit that-futtbucking tudes-- have us where we are today. I know that we all have a version of what "love" represents, and loss of those who actually represent it is going to hurt deep. Forget about all of our political agendas driven by hope and vision for the future, much of it selfish. I hope that everyone that is not looking to prey on anyone else- is blessed and healthy during the coming days.
