Ok, I had enough, put your little blue mask on, get a match and hold it about an inch from your face and blow.

Report back with your findings and for gods sake, dont be a dumbass and get the match to close, I don’t want you stupid liberals setting your face on fire!

Trump flattened the curve -- the original goal was attained. That, and the fact he stopped a lot of flights from China with Chinese citizens on them, saved millions of lives. When you have medical "experts" who waffle back and forth on what should be done, like Fauci and his mask advice, Trump did a great job. The pervasive liberal news media -- an arm of the Democratic Party -- keeps focusing on total cases so Sleepy Joe can stay in his basement, the Dems can cheat on mail-in voting and the economy can continue to tank.

Remember one thing about “medical experts” they always always always go with the worst case scenario. Look at that idiot Rex archer if you want local proof, that man is cra cra, he predicts doom and gloom 24/7.

And the dumbass is to much of a coward to admit the riots caused the numbers of cases reported to triple. He won’t even admit that most people in this city have been doing the right things since the beginning, effing chickenshit is what he is.

He won’t even produce the recovered numbers because he’s trying to scare people to death. Bwak bwak bwak!

masks save lives. they're all we have for mitigating the spread while still having freedom of movement.

if everyone wears a mask, it'll lower transmission.

SMART DOG, that Cleo!
Got out of Kansas, didn't she?

My grandfather had an old tomcat who did what Cleo did. After his house was sold the cat was taken out to the country side and released. Took him about three weeks to make it back home.

That model looks like "Alley" the former Tanner's waitress that fell in the parking lot and broke her wrist. In spite of that she went home with a couple guys and had a twosome, she was from Tulsa, I miss her....
