Trump does not wear masks. He is quite proud of being rude and stupid! Aloha! Rico

Our media is controlled by money rather than integrity, so the facts are more apparent in foreign news reports! Thank you for reading and commenting! Aloha! Rico

Hello Rico Leffanta, I feel badly for the poor people that have to decide wheter to pay for food or health. It should not have to be that way. Enjoy your day my friend.

Hello Rico you are right the super poor can not have cars. They need the money for food. Enjoy your day my friend.

Check out the food queues and you will see quite a number in very expensive automobiles! The super poor do not have cars! Aloha! Rico

G'day Rico … we are so, so lucky down here Rico. 100 deaths, less than 20 new cases a day, and both rich and poor are treated the same. Every traveller from here is warned - don't fall ill in America - thank you Rico - Lindsay

When my son was born in Queen Victoria hospital in Launceston, Tasmania, my wife stayed in a private room for 10-days with fresh flowers every day. Our cost was NHI contributions, $68 p.a. hospital insurance, plus $A7.00 for a telephone call to her father in Wales. At the same time, my sister gave birth in a Los Angeles, was in and out of hospital the same day and paid over $3,000, yet Americans continue bragging about their "Freedom of Choice" health insurance! You get the last laugh! Aloha! Rico

On 20.I.20, South Korea & USA each had 1 virus victim; now USA approaches 100,000 victims and 20% unemployment compared to SK 256 deaths and 3.8% unemployment. Republicans point their finger at Democrats who point their finger at Trump, but SK has national health whilst USA has "Freedom of Choice" , i.e., pay outrageous fees or die. Aloha! Rico
