Hey dufus, we aren't "other countries"

That said, most of the nations to which you refer, placed stay at home JUST LIKE WE DID and have now begun relaxing those restrictions, JUST LIKE WE ARE. How is that "WEIRD?"

So, that said, how does this somehow "spite" Trump?

I understand that sarcasm can be tough to spot, but give it your best shot.

Ok, besides the lame attempt at sarcasm, what do you have to say about opening up after flattening the curve?

I get it.
Most of what you post drips in sarcasm. Much of what you post vacuous of fact and often has little or no relation the subject at hand.

Whilst you can seem to put up smart @ssed responses, seldom to they contain wisdom. They are however, very entertaining. It's like watching a sock puppet trapped on a wheel. Just keeps going round and round slapping the pavement every time with a sh!t eating grin.

Please, keep it up.

And he won't even discuss opening up after flattening the curve. Probably because he would have to side with us, if he were to be truthful.

And he can't do that for fear of being called a Trump supporter.

It seems as though Slothrup will ONLY discuss subjects that he can attack Trump over. I guess if you can't attack Trump over a subject, its not worth discussing.

Best article I've read regarding the Democrats, Liberals and the Media
trying to totally ruin our economy, causing hundreds of thousands American's to lose everything they have worked decades for.
to begin with it was individual governors who sent oldsters back to nursing homes, not any agency like the who or CDC; the CDC in place before trump. i don't know who staffs it now. possibly Lucky the clown.
The shelter in place did work as evidenced by the cases flattening.

I thought the stay at home deal was to flatten the curve, well the curve has been flattened so why don't they open up.
closing down flattened it. hello. anybody home in there?
