      Hey you stupid racist, you can’t blame everything on a former president and China. We screwed up, Trump was more concerned with the economy than saving people’s lives. The world hasn’t seen anything like this before. Typical American, blame someone else….

    Those meat packing places are hell on earth now for people working there. Any factory for that matter. Like a yo yo are we now bouncing back. Imagine if a lot of people contract it so everybody has it. With so much of that virus around does a more severe strain develop. It does seem to be an air of vagueness about what the hell seems to be really happening. Only Brazil knows. This curtail on freedoms won’t last long.
