2. It'll be two weeks until the real effect of irresponsible Florida policies this weekend...

...shows up. What these new reports show is that there was already an uptick even before things got as insane as they are this weekend.

It'll get worse, much worse, especially once we see the real numbers and not the rigged numbers.

3. Relative by marriage on FB says "I am more afraid of a Democrat in the WH than the virus"

This country cant survive that level of stupid and brainwashing...and this is not a stupid person, but making one of the stupidest statements in human history.

15. I have lost 7 relatives, and several friends

over the past decade between "the birth certificate scandal," voting for, and supporting Trump, and now Covid19.

One was my best friend of 35 years.

Yes, I cried-- but, I don't want those people in my life. I am a 7th generation Southerner, so I guess losing people over a societal problem is in my blood.

4. Down here in South FL it has been raining hard all day, they forecast rain tomorrow too

I think this bad weather is really going to keep the folks inside, especially the magats who don't want to wear masks and party at the drop of a hat....

10. Maybe. A lot of folks down here don't like to drive in the rain, especially the older ones

and this time of year there is a lot of al fresco dining (especially in Ft Lauderdale) so the rain will put a damper on that. Maybe they will eat inside - our county prohibits more than 50% capacity and the tables have to be at least six feet apart. But then again, even though this is a blue county and you see a lot of masks and social distancing, there are also magats down here that refuse to follow any rules, rain or shine.
