GREED: Cause of virus spike

| December 23, 2020 1:00 AM

Well, Thanksgiving is gone. Christmas is nearly here. It is time to look at the naughtiest of all, the Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce and Coeur d’Alene’s Tourism Council.

Their greed and obvious contempt for us locals is astonishing. Back this spring, I believe we had 0 deaths and less than 100 cases. Then due to the Chamber’s and Council’s pressure on our cowardly governor, he decided to let loose a torrent of out-of-state tourists (infected tourists) on us, so they could line their pockets with cash.

Results: Cases explode, deaths take off, and they blame it on us non-maskers.

One can be sure hundreds, if not thousands, of contaminated tourists inundated the area, infecting many. Just as a rolling snowball grows, you are now witnessing the results of the Chamber and tourist industry’s greed, an unstoppable wave of cases and deaths.

If you lost someone due to this, send a card to Chamber members and wish them the same heart-breaking experiences tenfold. Although I do not think it will bother these greedy, heartless dregs who only want to line their pockets at the great and ever growing costs to the rest of us.

Merry Christmas to almost all, with obvious exceptions.
