i have no idea i wish i knew, on yahoo one day this week i forget what day it had a headline and i didn't read the article where it claimed that blacks get it more than any other race so it further said the title how the virus is racist or something along the lines of that.

 i've got  question though and maybe someone knows the answer, a friend of mine who is for Trump claims that Trump had truckers get a pay raise and that no other president has done that, he's a trucker obviously lol my question is, is he right? did trump do that? if it is than that is the only thing he's done since he went into office.

anyways they had idiots on tv that are there in Tulsa for Trump, man are they stupid how can they believe everything he says i just don't get that. if you want a good laugh i saw online last night that someone said someone needs to talk to (2013) Trump where he said that when you take office and you do something you need to be responsible for doing it and yet.... need i say more? also did anyone see that a Reporter asked him if all these people who leave you are such bad people why did you hire them? and he sat there quiet as a mouse. go figure ya know?

anyways as for the virus i dunno why but i'm still optimistic that at some point we will have a cure i'm hoping before the end of the year but i doubt it's gonna be anytime soon though.

i was just watching a video on you tube and it finished as i was looking something up and a video with the orange cheeto was on and pausing the video cause i held no interest what it had to say, i decided to read some of the comments and one of them was Trump will not Sale this country.

sale? what the hell are they even talking about? which just goes to show the kind of people that are voting for him that can't even spell. a 5 year can spell better than that person who typed that in the chat room or whatever it's called on you tube when you watch a stream

Some steroid which is apparently fairly cheap and widely available has been shown to help fighting against the virus. Of course, prevention would be better than a cure but at least it is something that works. I just hope that the businesses producing it don't just ramp up the price.

they can be helpful that's true but than you have people who get addicted to it. ya know on how i think, that might work for some people but not for others but than the various drugs they have announced on what is working or is a maybe like i said it worked for some but not others so they aren't calling it a cure.

here's what is gonna happen i think they are gonna continue to discover that various drugs can help certain people but they'd be stupid to call it a cure.
and i don't think they are stupid. it's nice to know they are at least trying ya know?

The virus affects a higher percentage of people who are living in conditions of lower income.

Many of the people in the US living in those conditions are black.

That so many blacks are living in lower income situations is a consequence of systemic racism.

Therefore the fact that more blacks are affected by the virus is seen as a direct result of racism.

The virus itself does not discriminate.  The conditions do.  And those conditions have been imposed by racism.

That is the logic behind calling the virus "racist".  Not quite grammatically correct; but the root cause of blacks being disproportionately affected is racism.

Off topic, but it makes no sense. The federal government doesn't pay truckers, it's a private industry like anything else. I suppose it's possible they're paying more now on some federal contracts, but that would be a tiny percentage of trucker's business. Plus, since when would Trump favor workers over management? That doesn't sound like him at all.

that's why i ask and if you are wondering if i argued with him the answer is no, i had no proof to argue with him to say he didn't do it anyways. why he believes this i have no idea, my guess is because there was a short time when he was filmed talking to truckers i am guessing i dunno. course they filmed him talk to a lot of people and he did nothing to help them either. i know nothing on how truckers are paid either

i just remembered i think he did say that Trump came and met with them personally, but that still doesn't mean he raised their wages though  or was able to get them raised

A minor addition: it's not really proven yet, but they also are now hypothesizing that low vitamin D blood levels put you at higher risk of severe symptoms and death from COVID19.  And, of course, the primary way you get Vitamin D is through sun exposure, and darker skin reduces how much you get, and black people are therefore about twice as likely to have low vitamin D.  That's not really "racism" of course, I just thought it was interesting.

No new cases in Moray for several days now and no deaths since the 15th. Hopefully this marks us coming out of things.

And of course he says slow down testing remark by Trump was a joke. Yet- Trump said he dosn't joke.

^ The thing going on here is even his almost just as insane ex- buddies are turning on him. Not like I'm a fan of John Bolton. That dick sucker wrote a book- trying to make himself look good because his scumbag ass is trying to distance himself from this human sinkhole.
Hoo-boy! Trump said- "- only the best people."
 Yet most were fired or they resigned.
He needs to go back to WWF.
