  1. Darwin in action …this will work in the dems.favor in Texas and FL. GA. and other Red States !

    1. @Michael W You preferred no treatment pre vaccine vs. hydroxy or ivermectin or zinc or vitamin d or green tea?

    2. @Sam Harris
      what kind of kickback are you getting for ivermectin? I can’t think of any other reason for someone to be so obsessed with something so obviously ridiculous.

  2. there’s no misinformation, it’s blatant lying, those who do it need to be held accountable and suffer consequences.

    1. Misinformation is mistakenly providing incorrect information; unintentional.

      DISinformation is what the Trump “administration”, RepubliQcans, and opinion-based parodies like FAUX, NewzMax, and OANot do.

    1. That’s what Johnson and Johnson said about powder and now sunscreen. Both now found to cause cancer.

    2. @Polar Opposite I really question what those women were doing with that powder. J & J never suggested inserting it.

    3. @Constituent A the powder is made for down there. It just happened to have asbestos in it due to the fact talc is mined in the same areas as asbestos. They occur together in nature. A lot of the cancers were also in lungs from inhaling the asbestos in airborne powder.

    4. Which is why you have to be persuaded, threatened, fired, bribed and stalked to take it
      Makes sense to me.

    5. @Polar Opposite I’m just not buying it. Damned near every person in the US born between 1950 and 1990 was “powdered” at every diaper change, and considering that, we should all have a cancer from it. Not so. I tend to suspect that the affected women were putting it inside them.

  3. As of this morning there were ten children in America on ventilators because of COVID. Children under 12 have no choice about getting vaccinated. Those of us who are adults have a choice to get vaccinated so we don’t infect children and other vulnerable people or refuse vaccination and possibly murder a child or another vulnerable person. The choice is yours.

    1. @The FuQ is Wrong with you?
      There is still a very small chance of getting COVID even if vaccinated, but it is many times higher for unvaccinated. It’s just common sense.

    2. @Sam Harris
      Because ivermectin is for parasitic worms and recommending inappropriate medication is dangerous, and possibly illegal

    3. @Jock Young Doing nothing if sick is appropriate? I would like to buy it like aspirin, personally

    4. @Sam Harris Appropriate medications are those that have been tested scientifically and found to be safe and effective for a specific condition. There are several such treatments for COVID, but nobody would be stupid enough to even consider a medication for parasitic worms.

    5. @Jock Young Surely you are not that ignorant on the topic, but I don’t doubt you are deeply in love with authority of some kinds

  4. Much of America is still locked in the hysteria of the 1600’s. Rationality and reason have still yet to catch up.

  5. Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  6. When a virus comes from nature and it mutates it mutates down in other words it gets weaker period when a virus is man-made and it mutates it mutates up in other words in other words it gets more dangerous. What are you think this virus came from? Don’t think too hard

    1. Maybe if you thought a LITTLE harder you would learn how ridiculous that statement is. Obviously evolution can make things either milder or nastier. All previous virus outbreaks have been from mutations of animal-borne viruses. That is just how biology works.

  7. vaccines have saved more lives around the world than any other medical advance (except maybe blood transfusions). They are a fundamental part of modern medicine. It is still a personal choice, of course, but if people are opting out of the vaccine because of unfounded concerns or political stubbornness, then modern medicine cannot be as effective as it could be. It is your choice, but don’t pretend your choice doesn’t have consequences.

  8. Dr. Fauci: Masks don’t work.

    Also Dr. Fauci: Masks do work, wear two.

    1. …..in the early days when they didn’t know it it was through contact vs airborne, you know when it first hit American shores.
      I’m sure you’re correct 100% of the time when facing a new, unknown challenge on your first guess.

    2. @Wargutz 40k “Doctor” Falsey didn’t know what a mask would do or not do? Then WTF was he being paid for then? Yet the boxes mask came in said on there, DOES NOT STOP A VIRUS. Being that the smallest hole on a mask is 1,000 times BIGGER than a virus particle. It takes 1 particle to get sick from. So mask do not work. Numerous doctors and scientist have said wearing a mask is more harmful.

  9. If you think it’s bad now Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is selling ‘Don’t Fauci My Florida’ swag, talk about moronic!

  10. “Misinformation”? lol Like this example?
    The Covid “vaccines” have never been approved, they’ve been authorized, an emergency authorization which puts them in the category of a medical experiment. (I personally don’t take any experiments)

    On December 11, 2020, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. On December 18, 2020, the FDA issued an EUA for the use of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. And on February 27, 2021 the FDA issued an EUA for the use of the Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. The issuance of an EUA is different than an FDA approval (licensure) of a vaccine.

  11. Tell me how this new serge got here, all the way from India? They have to stop letting people in this country while this pandemic is still here.

  12. Remember to beLIEve any and everything that the government and the people on the shiny box tell you. 😂🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

  13. 2 of 30 parts. God’s perfect solution allows sane, rational Democrats, that accept the laws of science,
    3 of 30 parts. to pass their $10 trillion _The Green New Deal_ infrastructure bill.

  14. 6 of 30 parts. By requiring all *real-Christian-men* to protect your family, the oceans, and our Mother the Earth.
