    I just tune in to watch his sign language interpreter. Did you know she is deaf? Yeah they have another that signs to her than she signs to the TV audience. Not only is this typical govt wasteful redundancy but how can the deaf signer use the speakers tone to put the proper emphasis on her signing? Oh wait it is all just theatrics..... and Walz wonders why people don't take what he says seriously?

    Imagine closing gyms but allowing salons and retail businesses to stay open.

    What's the going rate for a state sign-language job, $115,000 a year? Another 100K if you look so batsh!t crazy doing it you get people to tune in just to watch you?

    Yesterday Walz got frustrated about something and then said "We just don't know" if he would have said that in April, I would have said at least he's being honest. Many Minnesotans at this point are past the point of listening to him. I do think his desperation is showing and his pleas are genuine right now, it is just that if he were genuine when people were burning down buildings and packed elbow to elbow on the interstate more people would probably listen.

    It seems to me that most states have had their "second wave" throughout the country earlier this year and have quieted back down. The fact that it is happening in the Midwest right now going into winter will really kick us in the nuts.

    The media is blasting that North Dakota is the worst place in the world for covid right now, yesterday had 1200 new cases...

    North Dakota's death ratio is pretty high.

    900 mayo clinic medical professionals have covid. The story stated that they all got covid outside the facility or when they took their mask off to eat a meal in the break room.

    The fever, taste, and smell are big indicators. So, it sounds encouraging.

    Doubt it would be over...but couldn't tell if you're being sarcastic. Much as the foil hat wearers want this to be just a political ploy, my sister a doctor or son working in the ICU would tell you otherwise. My 2 kids, son in law and grand daughter have had the vid. Son caught it at work, think my son in law did too.

    So long as people can travel and there is no vaccine and there are asymptomatic carriers and people aren't listening anyway and even when the vaccine is available a large skeptical population won't opt for the vaccination and and...

    (most) People are stupid. Don't underestimate the extent of this claim. Politicians are also people. Iterate.

    If I'm typing something you can pretty well bet I'm being sarcastic.

    I don't understand not being able to be tested. Do you not hash a 'Doc in the box', CVS, Walgreens or GP that can do the test? The quickie med service was the route my wife, daughter, and one of my other sons were tested when they were exposed...ran the pcr brain seab and had results in 3 days.

    Urgent Care locations in my area are offering tests. You must make an appointment though.
