  1. Miami is a mess! Most of the people living there are poor. The rent is so high and low wages . Thank God I moved from there some years ago. I Live better in Tennessee rent more affordable and food is cheaper. Now I have money for vacations. I just visit Miami on vacation. I have the feeling Miami, Florida will be like just like California someday. It's getting there believe me.

  2. What a joke, 500 card limit for the day hahaha, they doing this cause they taking forever to interview new applicants for food stamps and unemployment benefits are ending this month. Florida and the government never surprises me, could be republicans or democrats, country will always remain the same, they love seeing the poor begging and dying. They haven't even negociate the new care package or stimulus check, it's always about how the congress is on vacations or taking care of other things, lol.. oh and by the way, arent we in a pandemic called COVID-19, why isnt the county taking measures of this line, people aren't 6 feet apart? What a comedy.

  3. Clearly the MAGA is strong in Florida. They got tired of all the winning so they gave all the money away to help their fellow states. The Bible says something along those lines right conservative Christians? So much winning! 😂

  4. I'm not someone who is against saving pets, I think we all should be more responsible when adopting animals and we should be very aggressive in making sure NO creature is harmed or mistreated. But for the life of me, I don't understand why there are so many more save animals sites or posts than there are to save people? Why can't we as people be as aggressive about the homeless, hungry, mentally Ill, and desperate people who are just trying to make it as we are about animals? I drive through DC every day the American capital, and not far from the white house, there are homeless living on the street. How is that possible in the richest country on earth? I was raised in the midwest and always thought DC, the white house was the "Emerald City" of American. But there are so many people in food lines. If we can find mistreated animals, why we can't find hungry and helpless people? I think as people we can chew gum and walk at the same time. I plead with the animal activist, states, and the government to widen and or include in your endeavors PEOPLE!

  5. Look at this in America…heartbreaking! If trump had taken coronavirus seriously and told everyone to wear masks a year ago we wouldn't be in this position and with almost 300,000 Americans dead. On top of that, congress, especially the Republicans and McConnell, should be ashamed for collecting their big salaries and ignoring the evictions, the loss of jobs, the hunger that people are experiencing.
