    Scamdemic, Obey for God is warning us worldwide. Evil demons will never obey, but a hard head makes for a soft behind. Please care for all people. Hands are for helping and not hurting. There is not a reason for homeless or hungers. Put people in studio apartments, train them online, and give $30,000.00, and $2,000.00 per month to train to work online. Take care of your own citizens first!! GREED will destroy this world. SCAMDEMIC.
