    1. Sounds like Ferocious2A is shocked about a virus not being racist. What a ridiculous comment. Good old fero2a always looking for a way to put his 2 cents worth of nonessential information out there. #iamnotalberto

  1. The Pandemic will not be under control unless we ALL understand that it is a killer disease. Way too many DENIERS are preventing that Covid19 be controlled. Need I say that Trump is the biggest denier? Where is the leadership when it is most needed? I’ll tell you. There is NO ONE in Washington, or Austin for that matter that knows what they are doing. Need to kick out the fake president and give total control to Dr Fauci at least until Joe Biden is elected President and begins the real work of fixing the mess Trump and associates have got us in. I know. That makes way too much sense to happen today, but it will eventually.
