Just had a terrible confrontation w/ a friend: Damn Fox "news" to hell!

This woman and I have been becoming friends for a few years, and have friends in common. We've met a couple of times car-window to car-window for social distancing lunches, which a lot of girlfriends are doing these days.

This woman is a Phd. and a minister, late 60's. So we're talking about this man she's interested in, and how she hasn't seen him because of social distancing, and all of a sudden....here she goes with Fox "news" crap:

"The liberals are trying to count all deaths as coronavirus to make trump look bad".

"Trump is the chosen one of God, and when he's out of office, the liberals are going to start what the Bible says in Armageddon. These are the end days, and the liberals are the devil's pawns."

I interrupted her and said, "You must be a Fox "news" fan."

She says "Of course I am! They're the only ones that tell the TRUTH about things. All the other channels are run by the liberals, and they lie all the time. Fox is the only place that I can get a fair and balanced take on what is going on!"

She said: "what corked it for me...ya wanna know what corked it for me? Liberals kill babies!!! The doctor puts the baby in her hands and she kills it!!!" (She said it. Her face was all contorted.)

I said: "I AM A LIBERAL!!! And that is SO not true!!!"

It went downhill from there.

It was over an hour ago, and I'm still shaking, and deeply sad. Fox is making liberals out to be the devil with these people. How is that not splitting this country apart? How can they be allowed to do this?

Furthermore, this person had "links" to videos that she wanted to send me to prove it. I told her I didn't want to see any such trash. And I told her to turn off Fox news. She said she loves it. She loves it, but she hates liberals.

Fox "news". Something has to be done. I don't see how we can ever heal from this. I don't ever want to see this woman again, and I know so many people think just like she does. How can we be the "united" states, if fox keeps programming 1/2 of the people to HATE the other half?

(Democratic) Governor Roy Cooper of North Carolina ordered all restaurants to close In NC

People can still get take-out, but no sitting at tables. I think it takes effect today? He was one of the first governors to declare a state of emergency.

He rocks!

The exchange of CASH MONEY is one way of spreading the virus.

And, in my best guess, is why people are turning up all over the place testing positive (or with symptoms) that haven't been out of the country, or in close contact with those from countries testing high positive.

Money gets handled by lots of people, who are in contact with lots of other people. Retail stores, liquor stores, fast food stores.

Let's say you drive up and pay for your BigMac with a $20. So, the guy before you in line gave the correct change for his purchase....a couple of ones or a five and such....and he just got off the cruise ship...hasn't tested positive yet.

Then, at the window, you get that guy's $5 bill in change for your $20, plus some coins he had rattling around after he wiped his nose and took the change.

Anyway, you get the picture. Money....the root of all evil under the best of circumstances...could be the root cause here.

The reason this is important to me is because my husband works in retail....at the cash register.
