... since you have decided that I must have dementia, low blood sugar and whatever you have decided that is wrong with me ...
child ... what the coronavirus has to do with anything in this news article?
( ... been sniffing all those different types of glues you have a fetish over again , huh!) and just for the record... child ... I did not just go off on you a couple days days ago... go back an look at your comments... you said "knock it off Warren " ... dang ... you are quite the control freak aren't you child... so I defended myself against "You" trying to tell me what I should do... and since this in still America and as of now... we are the right to defend ourselves ... even in conversation! Now, back to my point about your comment on this particular article where you commented " Coronavirus strikes again " ... I ask again because you may have forgotten because you're most likely sniffing glues again.

you haven't figured it out Warren, Rita is the most intelligent person on the internet.... just ask her. I have come to realize that she and Shirley MacLaine are equally BSC, and ignore much of what she has to say....

Does anyone know what Warren is talking about? He seems to a little incoherent. He might be gaslighting us again, though, idk.

Anyway, hope you guys are are wearing your masks. If not, you might spontaneously combust. Tie it to your walkers when you aren't using it so it doesn't get lost.
