  1. Since day one we’ve been given erroneous data, don’t believe for a second that this just started. I don’t doubt the virus is real but we should have been just as cautious about shutting down as we are of the virus. Tighter restrictions sure but better planned and that doesn’t require any federal intervention we have our own politicians
