Not sure but I think you meant obstain Captain. Anyway, maybe if they would stop harassing the people, they might find some healthcare workers. This nonsense of working them into the ground, and then not letting the other people work is just plain stupid in my opinion.

Correct but this system doesn’t allow you to edit typos after posting. Also you can’t read what you have written as the lines get obscured if you use the reply method. Needs a better set up.

Just to note but not respond this is further evidence that Certain posters as illustrated here with JbB are on here under a number of different names. Sometimes they mess up their trolling and sign in under the wrong name. I don’t know where they find the time to be honest and so much of it is nonsense that I find it not worth responding. Pedro for example is suffering from English language fatigue as he is usually much better than this when he has unhitched his pony and obtained from Tequila.. For so called JbB to denigrate Trump ....come on guys !!!
