  1. Well, good. 10 pm is late enough to serve alcohol anyway, anyone drinking
    after 10 pm is probably going to drive home intoxicated, but that’s just my opinion. I don’t use alcohol , and I use the word “Use” for a reason.
    Magazines in waiting rooms? I wouldn’t touch a magazine in a doctors office, sick people go there. You take your life in your hands…literally.
    I think we’ll stick to take out on Saturday nights anyway for a while longer.
    Things have to open up eventually, and we don’t want to be California…
    I miss the redwoods, but at the current prices? No thanks.

  2. Okay- I just have one more thing. Not everyone uses Facebunk, or owns a dumb phone. It really bugs me that it’s assumed everyone uses Facebunk,
    I’ll tell you exactly what zuckerburg can do with his Facebunk piece
    of crap, he can stick it and leave it there.

  3. Forcing people to wear a face mask is not okay. Face masks don’t do anything for you they are worthless. It’s not okay and I’m not going to wear one. Keep America free use common sense. If you are scared just stay home and be a good little sheep and don’t think about it. If it doesn’t pass the smell test then there’s something wrong with it. That would be Kate brown that you smell. Its really not tillamook or Toledo

  4. “When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

  5. Careful Concerned citizen, comrades Dem and Kevin might turn you in. Sounds like you need some reprogramming.

  6. It’s Trumps Statement about the Pandemic. Thanks for pointing out how worthless his statements are . . . you rock!

  7. Meet Knut Wittkowsi. Over 30yrs. experience in Epidemiology. Was recently on Laura Ingrahams FOX News show. A number of views that differ from what we’ve heard from Dr. Fauci. To me, Wittkowsi is more convincing. He also has data. “Flattening the curve” just broadens it…i.e..it takes l o n g e r to have the Virus go away. More people need to know about this guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z1p2_wNexs
