    1. Let me take it even further I don’t think there were mutations or variants. It’s just covid_19 they have no way of dealing with it. People covid_19 was being researched as we all know now. why were they messing with this I don’t know but it got loose on the world by (accident) oh wait a bat is to blame. Now the unvaccinated is the blame. Next people who refuse to get a booster will be the blame. When will it stop

    2. @Moses of Now I agree to some extent , i feel the delta variant is a reaction from the covid vaccine , the vaccine is breaking down their immune system, i know of 7 delta variant cases and they’ve all had the vaccine.

    3. @Moses of Now
      Many scientists are saying that the vaccinated people are causing the variants and mutations to happen though a process called immune escape.

  1. Keep in mind. States are not mass testing anymore like they did during the elections. Anyway, 99% Survival Rate.

    1. @QRW Sec Every time you leave the house you have a .07% chance of dying in a car crash. actually!

  2. Feels like this is being drummed up to be used as a reason to standardize mail in voting with all this voting integrity legislation going on.

    1. @webguy943 Ya’ll wouldn’t be so desperate to stop it if you knew we wouldn’t find anything. You’ll find out soon enough on your own.

    2. @Digby Smollett How would that make a difference? Electronic voting would still be easier to manipulate with the additional two hypothetical factors. Having hard copies of ballots is the strongest tool we have to show supporting evidence in recounts and audits. I suspect you also wouldn’t want to take Dominion at their word, correct?

    3. @GhostPirate LeChuck Correct, maybe they’ll go that direction but are concerned that with the current climate they’d never get it passed? I don’t know, I don’t have an insider feeding me spicy whitehouse intel, these people are willing to win by any means necessary though and with all the red flags popping up around voting I think this Delta variant surge is far too conveniently timed.

    4. @Digby Smollett That may be. My point is that paper trails in elections benefit transparency, not politicians of any party. Be wary when they are politicizing mail in ballots, lest you throw away your own protections to spite the other imaginary sports team.

    5. @GhostPirate LeChuck I disagree with mail in voting benefitting transparency in any way, but agree that paper trails are beneficial in the event of an audit. Were it up to me you’d need to show ID, be given your ballot at the polling station, and I’d have it like survivor where you walk into a booth, write your vote and then hold it up to the camera before submitting it.

    1. @Josh Wood – you didn’t. But if you think our history is so reprehensible, you might want to start looking at options. Perhaps study the history of other countries and find somewhere you feel better about.

  3. Lol, well over a year and a half an unsealed sock on the face is still being pushed. Normal people would stop doing something that doesn’t work after all this time. Here comes government control, they will begin forcing people to inject themselves by making businesses sell only to those that show proof of vaccine.

    1. @Litton Harkins but they are allowing the sick in their businesses. The vaccinated are the ones spreading delta variant. Remember if you are vaccinated you can go and come as you please no mask etc etc. H e l l o the vaccinated can catch and spread the virus. The vaccine only lessens the symptoms of the vaccinated. It does not keep them from catching and spreading.

    2. @willie kang The Covid vaccine is the virus and they will let vaccinated people go everywhere cause they’ll spread the virus

  4. When they say “misinformation” what they mean is, anything going against their disintegrating narrative

    1. Actually they mean anything unscientific and that has no basis with reality. Mainstream media most definitely can spread lies or even misinterpret scientific consensus, but most often people who are skeptical about vaccines haven’t done serious research and have NOT found some hidden truth, rather they are unambiguously latched onto ignorant conspiracy.

  5. The next variant is gonna be loss of hearing and loss of sight. Because if it can make you not smell and taste that’s crazy asf.

    1. @rockaustin how am I being lied to when I just got over covid and haven’t even gotten my smell or taste all the way back. Imagine having the other senses gone

    2. @Eddie Sanders Jr. because your immune system is weak. Your case is extremely rare. The pandemic is a scam.

    1. @eidorian101 you must have voted for the guy who calls black kids roaches. Judge Joe Brown said he WITNESSED BIDEN SAYING IT.

    2. @eidorian101we got another communist who thinks is American because he watches MSNBC and CNN all day and crying about Fox News which is just as bad as both of them.. Go pray to BLM and China and hope the Russian aren’t under your bed like all Democrats do

    3. @eidorian101
      Democrats cried about cheating in 2000 with Al Gore for years

      And in 2004 with John Kerry

      And 2016 with Hillary, for years and years

      And 2017 with Stacy Abrams

      Then look at what you tried to do to Kavanaugh.

      Seriously, you are lying dirtbags

    4. @eidorian101 We’re all crying that Biden won the election and no I didn’t vote for Trump either.

    1. No. Science, reality, and numbers/data are the opposite of fear and are the antidote to it. I would suggest trying Fox News, where vaccine conspiracy theories and fear of the unknown and xenophobia are much more frequent themes. I’ve seen small children who are less afraid of this vaccine and science than Republicans. True fear.

  6. When you don’t watch the news and then watch it afresh again it reminds me of an insane asylum.

  7. This makes me sick, pun intended. I’m glad I don’t watch news anymore. It’s nuts how manipulative they are.

    1. @lbrounen They can do whatever they want cause they’re a private business in a free Country.

  8. Up to the Chinese virus, a new flu strain was more or less expected every year. Somehow mankind survived.

  9. The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father’s, but he has never collected unemployment either.

    He’s a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student,pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and a 155mm howitzer.
    He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk. He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.
    He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional.
    He can march until he is told to stop, or stop until he is told to march.
    He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. He is self-sufficient.
    He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.
    He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts.
    If you’re thirsty, he’ll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food. He’ll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low.
    He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands.
    He can save your life – or take it, because that is his job.

    He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay, and still find ironic humor in it all.
    He has seen more suffering and death than he should have in his short lifetime.
    He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

    He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to ‘square-away ‘ those around him who haven’t bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.
    Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

    He has asked nothing in return, except
    our friendship and understanding.
    Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood.
    And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so.

    As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot. . …
    A short lull, a little shade and a picture of loved ones in their helmets.

    Prayer wheel for our military… please don’t break it Please send this on after a short prayer.
    Prayer Wheel
    ‘Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
    Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.’
    When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops in Afghanistan , sailors on ships, and airmen in the air, and for those in Iraq , Afghanistan and all foreign countries.
    There is nothing attached…
    This can be very powerful..

    Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine, or Airman, prayer is the very best one.
