196 Days since first US infection
The Hurricane petered out, the Whites and Berkshires tearing it apart. I got a little wind.
Trump had posts removed from both twitter and FB for lying about children being ‘almost immune’ to C-19.
The GOP won’t budge on aid to states and local governments, which have been tasked with all C-19 response (no national response, it’s on governors right?). Doing so has bankrupted almost every city and state, they did not have Pandemic monies set aside. So the GOP denying aid to states and cities is the GOP telling you to take that machine gun nest, but you don’t need ammo.

These numbers shout for them selves. The global surge is still ongoing from initial outbreak, the curve has never been bent globally. Here in the states we are leading the way in how not to respond to a National emergency.
This week 975,658 people were diagnosed with C-19, 22,162 were exterminated by C-19, of those 3,865 were my fellow Americans and 1 was a fellow Mainer.
