    It’s a respiratory inflammation like a cold. Not an intestinal inflammation like the flu. A very wicked cold. Pneumonia. Highly contagious a cough in an enclosed area expands for up to 30 feet. It’s in the throat. Highest death rate in Italy as of 24 hours ago is 20-29 age group. So much for only targeting the older and wiser population. Funny the little ones don’t seem to be affected as much. But those little bandits spread it like none other. Homo sapiens 101. Anyways, it’s raining nickels and dimes back into the pockets of the people. $1000 coronie checks will be here soon. Cash is King!

      The virus is said to live on plastics for up to 3 hours. The bailout banker’s debit cards in particular.

    This pandemic is a hoax ( purely Democratic in nature)
    But if it isn’t a hoax it is no where as bad as the good ole flu. And if it is worse than the flu we have it under control , especially with Spring just around the corner . But if it does get worse we will be able to test everyone that needs a test. But if we can’t do that we’ll just say ” Sorry , shitter’s full “

    Send all bills to the Chinese commie party for failing to contain this illness when first detected.

    Perhaps these $1000 coronie checks will come once a month till June. It could happen as one check is not going to cut it. More or less work will come to a standstill for many of the basic income status. Out 3 months of income for sure. Restaurants, bars, casinos, gyms, theaters, or any social gathering that makes money will not be opened. So, what do you have. Grocery stores, Liquor $tores, Convenience stores, Department stores?, are pretty much it. That’s where you can spend. Travel will be gone. Gas $1.10 a gallon maybe. Oh, let’s not forget online shopping! $$$

      Restaurants are still open for business, just cannot serve you in their dining areas. We got takeout from the North Western Steakhouse tonight. It was delicious and we are still supporting local businesses.

        As we are. The small privately owned business’s are the ones that really need your business.
