    Stupid Kim Reynolds won’t order shelter in place because she is far to ignorant to comprehend the issue. We need a shelter in place order in iowa because for some reason iowans and particularly mason city residents are absolutely retarded and refuse to stay home. You people suck. You’re going to ruin the entire summer because you can’t do the right thing and make the smallest of sacrifices so we can get past this virus. Thanks alot…

      That, and she keeps Hobby Lobby open. Slightly transparent on the corrupt end? Why keep the craft store open, really, it makes very little sense.

      I’m with you, she needs to find her drunk a as a new job. I imagine something gassing kittens or slaughtering livestock would be a better fit for her. She’s cruel, dis-educated and ineffective. For a Republican she did a hell of a job not working to pass constitutional carry, she hasn’t a clue how medical and recreational marijuana would be if great benefit to iowa, we can’t depend on food farmers and factories in times like these to support our economy. If this dipshit would have done what 75% of iowans polled yes on we would have so much revenue to push into this effort to fight China virus. If only she wasn’t a hateful old drunk…

        Well, she did drunk drive, according to records. She never brings it up, though.

          Yes she has. She explained that is why she got into AA and is a recovering alcoholic.

    And the Federal Government is tracking peoples movement by cell phone. Wow. It’s incredible how they’re using that data to track the spread on a map. They can watch one person’s phone and track their movement anywhere. Anytime. People in hospitals will be a priority.

        You seriously do not think the nsa doesn’t track your phone everywhere? It must be nice to live in a fantasy land where your government respects your rights or you have any REAL privacy at all. Sucks for those of us that have to spend our time in reality. You enjoy being ignorant though, I’ve been told there is bliss in it.
