Another day and again more than 3000 new cases in Georgia. And check out the story about the the GOP Breakfast yesterday with Doug Collins. These characters went to a meeting with few masks and little social distancing. I’m getting pretty mad that these idiots don’t care about possibly killing someone by passing along a highly contagious disease. They don’t care about their friends, imagine how much they care about you.

How's life in a closet treating you Richard?

Don't get used to it. At exponential growth it'll be over 4,000 per day, the 5,000 per day pretty quick. If only we had people in our government who knew what an exponent was, they might comprendo what's happening. Feckless Kemp, it spread like this, You try Pert shampoo and you tell two friends, they try Pert and they tell two friends, and so on and so on, except it's life or death of the elderly and/or scam victim types known as GOP voters
