    I am glad that you are up in arms

    please tell all folks north of FL to keep the heck out of our state and stop bringing your covid with you when you come here to relax.

    Snowbirds from NY and NJ mostly filling up Florida hospitals. They shoulda stayed hope and let Cuomo take care of 'em.

    Actually, no, because in an early bid to manipulate Florida's numbers to look favorable to the re-open crusade Gov DeSantis made it so non-residents are counted separately. So I don't know if you flat out made up what you just said or if you picked it up from some nutter but you're just flat out wrong.

    You must not live in Florida or you would realize that all the Yankee tags on the roads make them pretty obvious. Our towns population swells by about 25% from November thru April because the snowbirds and canucks flock to several giant RV parks in the winter. Hope they stay their asses home this season.

    Nobody is forcing anyone not to wear a mask that I have heard of. To act like people don't understand the risk at this point would be like pretending that people don't know smoking can kill you. The over-reliance on face covering as opposed to maintaining social distancing is the problem here.

    Florida would likely go bankrupt without those "pesky" people north of Florida visiting to relax and spending their monies there.

    Melodrama never fails. You don’t kill someone simply for not wearing a mask. You have to actually be contagious to do that. When one of those scanning thermometers says you don’t have a fever, you don’t have an infection to “kill” with.

    The numbers already prove much more outlive a Covid infection than die from it. Yet you still freak out as if cases are a bad thing. What did you think would happen with more testing?

    Almost will come out of this FL hospital with mild complications, some severe complications, some minor complications. Covid is like anything else. The sooner you realize you have it and treat it, the less damage it can do in the long run.

    Many people KNOW the numbers are exaggerated. Many KNOW the numbers are in many cases fabricated.

    They know that because they've received results when they've never been tested. They know that because they've been called by "health authorities" and asked to make testimonials about how "horrible" the disease is. Ben Swann at ISE Media talks about it.

    Scamdemic is the best way to describe the mess in the US.

    The technical definition of the word "many" is "at least two."

    But even then, the people who KNOW these things are conspiratorial wingnuts that have zero actual evidence.
