Corona has 80k deaths, the flu has 60k a year. It's just as bad.

--No, the flu has 60k "a year". Corona killed 80k in two months, with a lockdown. Multiply by six to give an actual year estimate, so 480k. Then multiply by four for the spread without a lockdown=1.92 million deaths vs 60,000. Not the same, wear a mask and a helmet.

Obama's the most corrupt administration ever.

--By what metric color? You understand there were zero indictments during his 8 years. Not including trump, Reagan had 33 indictments, a savings and loan scandal, and the Iran contra affair. Nixon had 18 and retired before he was impeached. You understand when you use the word "most" that means nothing has more of that value. Like this is the "most" unproven claim.

This lockdown is unconstitutional

--You know the "Constitution" allows for the suspension of Habeas Corpus in times of emergency. So rights being withheld if deemed necessary is actually constitutional. Also after 9/11 we allowed all our privacy invaded for the sake of national security. We named it the patriotic act, and you probably voted to re-elect the guy behind it. Also up until 40 years ago, we conscripted 18 years old boys against their will, put gun in their hands, told them to kill people trying to kill them. and we did that for "freedom" and to prevent the loss of more human lives. These lockdown procedures are in place to also prevent the loss of american lives. So congrats this is your draft, but instead of a gun here's your mask. I'd advise to still wear a helmet and read a 6th grade social studies book.

Candace Owens said Arbery's murder wasn't race motivated.

--Owens is an attention nut who will sell out her own skin for a tweet. But on what she said, vigilantism is still illegal. You don't get to just hunt down people with a gun and tell them to get in the car. The killers had a right to defend himself, no, Arbery had a right to defend himself. Why did he run, because they weren't cops. Anyone with synapses firing in their brain would run out of fear for their life. And yes we can debate--if you want--whether they have self defense as a claim, and the merit of citizens arrest. However, none of her arguments touched on the point that it took two months to file charges and bring an arrest. That the DA who is friends with them declined to press charges, and also the pictures of them in Klan gear. That's some old boy cronyism right there, and the real sign of institutional racism. Owens or Aunt Tina, knows which side of the bread is buttered for her. Yeah she hates the democrats and says to congress there is no racism, yet she still sued the town of Stamford for racism, got a check with the help of the NAACP, and ran an anti-trump blog website in 2016. Her only value is being the black friend to republicans and justify racism. Her only principle is herself. Oh you didn't know that about her? But i thought you did "research". Okay here's some help, google is spelled with two O's, and if you defend this killing everyone thinks you're a racist.

The world is flat

--Kick rocks.
