  1. As an RN I cannot help but to be concerned about the long term safety and the length of efficacy this vaccine will provide. When it comes to any medication we must ask ourselves “does the benefit outweigh the risk?” I am split on my own answer on a personal level. It is a personal decision to receive, but it totality, it can affect the health of those around us. I am conflicted.

    1. Thank you for all you and your colleagues are doing! Healthcare & 1st responders have gone above and beyond their call of duty this year of pain and sheer suffering. I totally RESPECT your questions.
      I think we all have a lot of questions. I don’t completely trust a rushed vaccine and will be wearing my mask (sadly) probably well after I get the Vaccine.
      Wishing you the Best & Stay Strong!

    2. THANK YOU! Im certain other nurses and doctors have similar concerns but are afraid of speaking out with good reason.

    3. There is a doctor who stated she approved the vaccine for 18 year olds and older but not for 16 and 17 year olds due to undetermined long term effects.

  2. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME THE WUHAN VIRUS?! I AM BEING SERIOUS HERE! AT LEAST I WON’T FEEL LIKE I WASTED 1 YEAR OF MY LIFE!

    1. You do NOT want that virus. PLEASE Be Safe & Stay Strong.
      You know I also feel like 2020 has been a wasted year. Not much progress and yeah, a whole lot of precautions and upending our whole lives for a Result we can’t measure by many standards:
      I will say this-
      I don’t want the Virus.
      I don’t want to get it or give it anyone and if I can at the very least say I have accomplished that -then it is all worth it.
      Best wishes & Stay Strong!

    2. @tek merion The stupidity from people like you would be reaching comical levels if it wasn’t a massive detriment to everyone else around you. MAGA, right?

    1. Agree! Steve Scalise, one of Trump’s Republicans, is a TRAITOR and Anti-American involved in the attempted COUP by Trump.

    2. No, he is trying to make the state gov. Follow their own rules, or the state Constitution. They’re exhausting all options, including secession to avoid a 2nd revolutionary war.
      All those gun nuts that everyone is so afraid of are mostly CONSERVATIVE/CONSTITUTIONALISTS that have been stockpiling guns and ammo for years because they were afraid Obama and Clinton were going to try and take them away. They are the preppers that have been stockpiling food, water, guns, and ammo as well as training with those firearms.

  3. That was the whole basis of this “pandemic”..Create a phony baloney epidemic..spread panic, fear, doubt, bad news..and presto! We have a vaccine ready to get this under control! Pfizer, one of the biggest losers of any industry, behind it all of course! And who is directing the circus? Politicians! Oh yeah, no need to worry, they are on top of it…lol!! This country is a pathetic joke, makes the Three Stooges look like a tragedy.

    1. @Sandpiper 20 anyone with a brain can look out for long term side effects 6 months after getting a new vaccine.
      You don’t have to be an “expert”

    2. @Sandpiper 20 The companies are so confident in their vaccine that they are all protected from any side effects .. so go ahead get it..muhaha. even they don’t know what will happen and you can’t sue them ..

  4. USA Today’s news editor would make a lousy secretary. “There’s an emergency meeting scheduled….” No title. No subject. Just a little vague panic for your nerves.

  5. The 14th Amendment forbids reactionaries from participating in rebellions to overthrow the regime or to rebel into parliament. He called trump the fascist dictator.

    corruption and tax evasion.

    His lawyers, Cyrus Vance, said that the public accusations of President Trump’s misconduct “piled up like a mountain.”

    Trump and his businesses. Trump on charges of tax fraud and tax evasion for more than 10 years.

    Trump spread covid to many people in the white house and Trump killed many Americans.

    Perhaps the sentence Trump is first is more suitable (than the sentence 

    of America first with Trump)

    Trump is taking care of Christmas. And the people take care of their own lives.

    The evil king

    Chhjjjkkkkkghj

  6. Honestly I have never imagined myself t’rad’ing b’itcoin or any other assets. it wasn’t in my plan at all but somehow I found myself here. After t’rad’ing by myself and l’osing so much I met the a’mbitionist in a Seminar which I attended. since I started t’rad’ing with him I have never lost a trade I make $’21,000 every two weeks with him . he offers t’raining on t’rading the s’tocks and also he handles portfolios for t’rading…

    2. I was able to make $’10000 t’rading with Claus in just two w’eek. I don’t know how he does it. I think its m’agical

    3. I will never stop c’ommending the a’mbitionist. Though I maybe old and poor, but f’inally i’nvesting with him has made me realize that we still have h’onest t’rading expert out there. I started with an i’nvestment of $’1500 and now I earn $’7500 w’eekly. I think I’m living my dream.

  8. Matthew Chapter 5
    1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
    2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
    3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
    5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
    6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
    7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
    8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
    10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
    12 Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
    13 Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
    14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
    15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
    16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
    17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am come not to destroy, but to fulfill.
    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heavens and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
    21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
    22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
    23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
    24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
    25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him: lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
    26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
    27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
    28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
    29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body be cast into hell.
    30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
    31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
    32 But I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
    33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths.
    34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne.
    35 Nor by the earth, for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
    36 Neither shalt thou swear by the head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
    37 But let your communication be Yea, yea; Nay, nay; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
    38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
    39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
    40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy coat also.
    41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
    42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.
    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.
    46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
    47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
    48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
