Quot posting "Contirmed/Pressumptive" cases when you show the daily covid numbers!!! We only want to see "CONFIRMED" cases. Counting "PRESUMPTIVE" cases is reckless reporting wrong to count. It makes the numbers very ambiguous if not completely fake.No wonder we are leading the world with this kind of math.


Look at the deaths piling up for the panic scare from governor Brown. Question the reporting of the numbers it's our right to! Inflating them I bet you!

They want national mail in voting... Wonder why huh? 30 years of Democrat control in Oregon. Oregon just proves you can cheat in mail in voting!


yep its all about the election. watch them figure out a way to prevent the debates next


Why do you think they are forcing home schooling until November 5th. Some how it will be all good to go back to class after the election.This is why we need to get rid of "non partisan" voting and go "partisan" so we always get something besides democrat vs democrat or this madness will never end.
