    How about you tell us how you differentiate between the two? Still haven’t heard anything about this

    "elective surgery put on hold"
    Meanwhile my girlfriends been waiting on her cancer treatment for almost 2 years and the hospital is empty.
    This is war on the human population.

    FUN FACT: America forces children to endure the TRAUMA of active school shooter drills in the name of FREEDOM.

    But wearing a mask to school and Costco TYRANNY.

    Why are not not reporting the adverse effects of the vaccine such as shingles? If you look in the comment threads you will find that so many people are reporting blister outbreaks. Once they remove the liability waivers which protects the pharmaceutical companies & the US government from being held accountable, only then MAYBE will I consider it. Since the Pademic occurred I have only been sick 1 time & that was in February of 2020. I am certain I contracted Covid, but that was before Covid & testing had became known in the US. I excercise daily, and eat a healthy diet. Does my natural immunity not matter? Can't I still catch Covid whether I'm vaccinated or not? The CDC still suggests that we still wear masks weather fully vaccinated or not……Please make this make sense 🤔

    Cases. Based on a test that the inventor of it said it was not to detect virus. It's a lie. 40 cycles and a goat and a fruit were positive. Test my car. I'm terrified. DELTA. ( Come fly with me). Next name. Next name. It's all Greek to me. tel LIE vision. That's why they called it fall PROGRAMING. Now it all seasons.

    I (and everyone) else wants to know how they are even testing for the Delta variant. Or is anyone that triggers the PCR (not even meant for Covid testing) considered Delta variant at this point since regular covid is played out.

    I told you there was a super-spreader narrative coming a few weeks ago.
    Here you go:

    In the immortal words of Vegeta, "The strong will find a way to survive, and the weaklings will perish." It seems crass to say that in modern times, but it's literally what's gotten us to this point. If everyone gets the virus, the population will thin out, and there will be less competition for limited resources. Sorry grandma, I love you, but you knew this was coming…

  • Here and Clear

    Over 60% of our black population still is unvaccinated despite a year long siege on our downtowns for justice. Why this group holds back the progress of our country is baffling. We have provided free vaccines, free transportation and support for a "Justice for All" campaign. Yet, this one group is the most unvaccinated in our country. Come on black brothers! Your keeping the rest of the country in an economic stranglehold!
