Stories about Philadelphia in 1918-1919 are just heartbreaking. I usually don't cry when I check out websites or watch Youtube.

And apparently a lot of Trump supporters don't think it's important. I read about one appalachian preacher who had his entire congregation get down and lick the church floor. That's going to cost Trump in 2020, when there are not many of his elderly supporters still around. They are lining up to drink the Kool-Aide.

Nobody is saying it, but somebody has to: Bored teens and young people, don't sneak out to see your QT pi or visit with your friends. You are going to kill Grandma! The safest sex has always been solo sex. And parents of these kids: Give them the privacy they need for some quality "alone time".

They don't and make fun of those who take it seriously. We can only hope.

There are two groups that tend to not vote. The first are the youth, and the second are the very poor. I keep saying it, but, IF YOU DON'T VOTE YOU ARE GOING TO GET SCREWED! This is the flat out truth. I think 'thinking' goes along with this stuff and neither side does much of that either. Youth, however, REALLY don't. They showed a video of them on Florida beaches having a dandy time with one another without a thought in the world. At the same time they are announcing that One of the major groups for Covid-19 are those from 20 to 54.

There always seems to be somebody who runs and banks much of their success to the young and the poor. Bernie was the goat for that, this time around and he got burned. There is no doubt about this. When the battle for the presidency really gets going I would hope to see, attached to each and every Democratic ad; "If you don't vote you WILL get screwed!". I am not convinced it would make any difference but it would be easy and can't hurt.
