  • 🕯🌳Hmmmmmm. 🌍🖖🐸

    • Humboldt going to be on lock down for ever oh thats right every one still out running around like nothing going on

  • Apparently we are supposed to peak in Sept. I’m glad we are flattening the curve.

  • 🕯🌳What I didn’t like was it doesn’t tell the age.🐸🖖🌍

    Where are they from? Love to know. What a joke the lies this woman spews.

  • As I told you all. This is the new norm. If all of you are correct, this will never end. 8.5 billion of us. 8.5 billion hosts. Sorry, we are all fucked. This is not ending in 2 weeks, or 2 months, or two years…Can’t hide under your bed and live off government subsidies forever. Self reliance is the cure, not isolation.

  • HC is so damn lucky to have Dr F, and Billy Honsal, they’re great, BUT , they are being Way too polite and diplomatic about the Casino’s opening.
    A CASINO for fuck sakes?!
    Whose patrons are THE LEAST likely to give a fuck about Anything , let alone a damn life threatening virus that they could catch OR pass.
    WHY?? Because Their so called “customers” are GAMBLERS for CHRISSAKE!
    GAMBLERS! many of whom are smokers , and addicted to alcohol and other drugs = “I. do. not. give. a. fuck.!”
    Do not
    Will not
    “Hi, my name is Rona V, I bet you’re Dyin to meet me”
    GAMBLERS lose at least 75% of the time……guess what, guess who will be the biggest losers at the casino?
    ALL of the workers who end up getting the Rona Virus that’s who!
    And then they will spread it like wildfire through out our county.
    Thanks a fucking lot!

    • Dam Rona Thank You for speaking up..
      Totally agree with you..
      If people would want to go out and loose there money that bad and take a chance on getting sick ,, they might need gamblers anonymous..Thanks again rona..Best comment I have seen all day…

      • I smell racism. Native Americans have to make a living too you know. ( fuking entitled privileged white people.). I think live concert venues are more prone to spreading “the disease”. We need to stop concerts and those dam “hippy” art fairs. Nothing but tons of people standing too close to each other, laughing and spitting all over each other, spending grubby germ infested money…. shut it down! And children! My God we need to put 6 foot leashes on those germ infested “things”. Just the other day, my daughter (as always) runs up to someone and tried to hug them! I had to scold her and tell her that she was trying to kill that person with her actions. 6 foot leashes people!!!!!

        Remember, what you do today, could kill someone else tomorrow. Stay home. Wear your mask. Don’t question authority.

      We are lucky? Lol how so. They are our employees, they work for us the tax payer
      So how in the hell are we lucky to have employees who refuse to answer basic questions and constantly fight transparency?

      Honsel is probably not near as corrupt as the previous guy, but he sure the heck isn’t a godsend.

      Dr. F… Lol. She’s the absolute worst. Try and get a clear answer on the cases in sohum. She starts tweeking out, literally.

  • I could of swore I posted something what did I ? Why would you ?
