Being true to the core value that Americans do not leave other Americans behind, Americans are pulling together like never before. Dumbass Liberals are doing what they can to spread disinformation and disease.

Thank God for our President, Vice President and our business leaders across this nation and for their common sense approach. God bless the USA.

Don’t forget all of Americas truck drivers that are going over and above to help move our necessities around the country. This in spite of closed rest stops and restaurants, shower facilities and overcrowded and limited parking areas. Thank a trucker today.

And God bless the greatest President in my lifetime (81 years), President Trump.

Coming together, that’s the example our businesses and corporations display. Something to ponder when we think they could set back and lay people off and say it’s not my job to help. Check it out politicians…catch the vision… it’s not about you. What we are seeing is good Americans coming together in times of trouble. That’s what we do.

As usual the democrats whine and call the president names. The rest of the nation is hunkering down and getting things done, and looking for ways to help each other. The dems are always looking for the government to help them. The rest of us are just looking for way to be helpful.

John Karkalis

This is as it should be.
It worked during WWII. Why not now?
So what is clueless old Bernie doing to help.
He was last seen holed up in his man cave reading the collected works of Marx, Lenin, and Mother Goose.
Sleepy Joe? He’s working on a stand up routine in case things don’t go his way in November. Trouble is, he can’t talk and stand at the same time, probably from the head wound he received when he single handedly raised the flag over Iwo Jima.
He was a toddler at the time, but why ruin a great story with fact or reality?

Shirley Everett

God bless America, we are truly the greatest nation on God’s earth.

Joel

Don’t forget all of America’s truck drivers that are going over and above moving the things we need around the country. This in spite of rest stop and restaurant closings, limited shower facilities and overcrowded parking areas where they need to get much needed rest. Thank a trucker today.

Of course. Government is like those wild grapevines that grow up the side of forest trees. Small to medium size vines are manageable, but when the vines leaves blot out the trees leaves, the tree wastes away. The bigger the govt, the smaller the citizen.

Yes very good but are they as bad as GM saying they want top dollar to make ventilators and not even doing them quickly, I don’t buy GM and now I will never buy a GM, how dare they put money before helping Americans the people that made them by buying their cars and trucks plus making them,,and there other co. Out there they all should be helping anyway they can. My Husband works at grocery store he 75 years old and still is working, might not be as fast as he once was but he knows he is needed, God Bless the real Americans, please help all who are sick around the world.

Donna Christensen

Americans have always risen to the call produced by catastrophes in our nation. Praise God for out combined unity!

Ellen kirthuis

Thank u for the news u provide. We read it with confidence that it is not ‘fake’!!

Anne May

Facebook donated their emergency reserve of over 700,000 masks, How many people work at Facebook that they would have an emergency supply of 700,000????

Elvira

So refreshing and long awaited true American response to a serious problem. Oh, that we can make this response once again a basic working attitude in our nation. Working positively, together to solve a problem instead of attacking each other, placing blame.
