    Default Mile Long Food Lines In The USA In 2020.

    "Motorists queued for up to five hours to access emergency provisions at a food bank near Pittsburgh as the economic impact of the coronavirus continues.

    Video footage shown on CBS-affiliate KDKA shows the line of cars, spread across two lanes, snarling up the road leading to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank in Duquesne before it opened at midday on Monday.

    KDKA reported that motorists had started arriving at the food bank from 7 a.m. Around 1,700 families managed to get their hands on the emergency supplies."

    “going very substantially down, not up.”

    “the 15, [cases] within a couple of days, is going to be down to close to zero. That’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

    I wonder if those people waiting 5 hours in a food line think this is a job well done...

    ""With demand in food skyrocketing and the supply hard to come by, many food banks are relying on current inventories to respond to the increase in demand.

    "While that's worked in the short-term, we are getting to a point where food banks won't have inventory to meet demand in the weeks and months to come unless we can drive additional food and funding to food banks quickly,""

    Hungry people tend to be highly critical of the leadership.

    Houston has long food lines, then runs out of food:

    "Both districts ended daily pickup this week and started providing three days’ worth of meals on Mondays and Thursdays. However, Aldine and Pasadena officials reported unexpectedly high demand that caused many of their sites to run out of food Monday."

    Given how the left reacts to even the slightest mention of people going back to work (all the while having thier food delivered to them by the underclass) i dont see how this can be avoided. Italy has armed security in all groceries now.

    Ah well its worth it to save just one more life from covid right? lockdown for 6 more months lol.

    I have not seen any intelligent posts from a Trump supporter but most of all, none with empathy. Trump leads a death cult of sociopaths.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    TRUMPVILLES WILL BE SPREADING.......

    Corporate America today is the lobbying arm of the Chinese Communist Party and Wall Street is the investor relations department S Bannon.

    Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people - does not even pretend to try, instead, he tries to divide us

    We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership -Mr Mattis

    They should have been prepared as I have done. Don't ask me to feel sorry for them now.

    We should have aggressively prepared for this pandemic like South Korea did, instead of denying, downplaying, and lying about it for three months.

    If leadership shut down the entire country sooner do you think there would be no lines for food? This is a perfect example of TDS to me.
