    Locusts, I don’t know, but there’s news of murder hornets. So the apocalypse continues.

    As long as you don’t live in East Africa you can forget the locusts.

    There’s corn, but that is all there is. All the bees have died and everything will have to be hand pollenated.

    The President needs to use reverse psychology and say “Please don’t tear down the Martin Luther King memorial.” People who always do the exact opposite of what Trump says will be confused.

    I dreamed of being shot twice : first in war during a battle ; second by an American soldier from an helicopter (I’m Italian and we should be friends , or close to it) .

    You have to go through the murder hornets to get to the corn.

    If the corn is gone, the Tortilla chips are gone… and the feed for the dairy cows that ultimately get us cheese for our nachos… THAT is when it get serious!

    Yes, there is still corn, at least in Gatlin. The children have done what is necessary for there to be an abundant crop.

    Because of the extreme controversy that has regularly occurred in these forums regarding the wearing of masks, here are the latest findings that officially remove doubt from the matter:

    All this link does is debunk personal opinion and establishes what common-sense should have told us all along: masks save lives, on both ends of the deal. I hope this helps put an end to the endless opinionated debates. If this single link isn’t sufficient, follow the other links. The evidence is growing, studies are being conducted, officially there is no question.

    This will be re-posted on several comic forums, since several comic forums have been used to provide misleading information about masks. The debate is over. Wear a mask. Help save lives.

    On the contrary, the POTUS did a 180 on ignoring our C-19 disaster after 50K more tested positive on one day, admitted he was totally wrong, that he should have listened to the PhD’s and not his Potilicat-Cabinet, and begged forgiveness.
