    1. @Narcissism Exposed 101 I’ve been reading the literature from the UK, Germany, Japan, and Canada as well as the US.

      Morons like you watch Fox, Newsmax, and OAN.

    2. In your dreams!!
      Again, sorry for your losses and loved ones. But it does not creat a moral compass to force mandates and create tyranny against individual choice and medical privacy!! I don’t need to know any of these outcomes, we already have the pros and cons!! And we still have a drug not FDA approved, and even when you do it’s “Choice” stop using incentives and using others tragedies as a push or moral compass to bribe others to follow suit!! Stop! If you want people to care about your choices you have to allow their choices also!! But it’s against the law what you are doing! And it’s also the very medical freedoms we got from watching Nazi germany use medical treatment and disease as the lie to usher in one of the worse genocides we know of and also went to war to stop!! So yeah stop say “NO” to mandates!

    3. @Peanut Butter maybe for misinformation? Last year and right now things have changed with variant- delta is said to be more contagious and is now hurting and killing children-may clinic has up to date charts with actual numbers per state if interested

    4. @Peanut Butter sure just as long as you’re last in line for a bed in the hospital and that YOU are responsible 100% for your bill. I want my freedom from your STUPIDITY!

  1. These people are acting like the Education department just ordered all of them to death in the morning. Not thinking their children and teachers are going to have to wear a mask to protect them.

    1. @Danaman62 no you Have people consenting to an experimental Drug, not FDA approved, you also have people who have never been vaccinated for those other ailments you mentioned, there has been many exemptions! and now your trying to force those who are saying no to do it!
      It’s exactly the above!!

    2. @Animated Adventures Those other things I mentioned all deadly diseases that have been eradicated for the most part because of vaccinations. Some of those are starting to make a reappearance because there are more people not getting their children vaccinated. Mostly because of misinformation or down tight lies. Whooping cough, polio, and measles are in the group. Teachers and staff have to be vaccinated now. Or be tested regularly. The children are starting to get sicker. Hospitals are filling up again. How will they act if and when the schools have to be closed again because of Covid-19? And what about more businesses closing again. That’s hard to come back from.

    3. @Danaman62 none of that has to happen, your fear is saying that is what needs to happen, because of wanting to control others!! It’s against the law, and medical is private to individuals, not something forced!! We are seeing exactly what happened in Nazi Germany!! Almost to the T, by the very organizations of health that came after the Nuremberg Trials!! Be in denial all you want!

    4. @Animated Adventures Fear of Americans losing freedoms went away when JoeBiden became President. All these diseases coming back is a reality already. I’m just stating the facts as I know them.

  2. So many teachers quit or retired after last year. It was a really rough year. Crap like this just makes teachers want to leave the profession even more.

  3. Meanwhile in the UK we’re almost over these mask mandates. Nothing has changed. We’re still humans here.

    1. So are we, and this is why-

    2. @Equality for All Races oh no…that title of the most deaths is clearly yours…enjoy your rights while dying.

    3. Yep
      So brits are banned from travelling to many countries and are going to suffer another round of deaths soln

    4. Didnt the same people scream when you stopped lock downs the cases and deaths would sky rocket? Well didnt they actually fall 70%?

  4. As a former school nurse… We send kids home whenever they run a fever… There are already mandated vaccines before kids attend school… Why should this be any different? For parents to threaten school staff and healthcare professionals with violence… They need to be held responsible for their threats. This is not freedom of speech, especially if they pointed out that staff member and said “I know where you live…”

    1. Most teachers and nursing staff should be fired . The system needs to be re- structured and re- built from the ground up .

    2. @Jeanne Lesinski NO, no . They’re “peaceful protesters ” . C’mon kinda like last year. And the police are “DEFUNDED” , so no worries .

    1. @Mooch M it’s not a threat! You are being told “no” the threat is the force and starvation and line they will drive through this country! Because people are saying no to “Mandated” medical! This, is what will cause a rebellion and a war in this country!! Because we defeated it once before, and we even put them on a “world court” to trial, since then, organizations like “ who” cdc” have came about as “world” dictators of health. Much like Nazi Germany!! Your answer is “No”. So if they keep trying to “force” it against choice, you may see more violence!

    2. @Animated Adventures So were you homeschooled? Have you never traveled outside the USA?
      We are decades into vaccination requirements for attending public schools and traveling outside of this country (where a vaccine passport is actually a required thing).
      Do you protest rules by driving drunk without a seatbelt?

    3. @I Voted – stop using the seatbelt as an argument! People don’t wear them! You can’t force it other than “Fines” if they die because of it that was choice!

      it’s not a threat! You are being told “no” the threat is the force and starvation and line they will drive through this country! Because people are saying no to “Mandated” medical!

Much like Nazi Germany!! Your answer is “No”. So if they keep trying to “force” it against choice, you may see more violence!

    4. @I Voted – and no, there have been exemptions, not everyone has vaccinations!! Just the people who do it because they are being asked to or threatened to lose something if they don’t!! That’s illegal!

    1. ​@Anthony G. Most countries are now getting back on track. I live in Ireland and it’s coming to an end, because people got some common sense and realised we are all in this together.

    2. Schools aren’t going to shut down. There are going to be kids home-schooled by their Ideologue parents is what’s going to happen. A mask??? Its protection. So, if they’re gonna threatened ppl over a protective measure…there is no reasoning with these ppl. They’ll be teaching their own kids at home.

  5. this is what we doing over something so petty as just wearing a mask to save lives this makes no sense

    1. @pj okelly he needs to visit the ICU in new york considering they have some of the strictest covid laws and still have the highest deaths while Florida’s is meduim-low.

    2. Masks are not designed or intended to prevent, mitigate, treat, diagnose or cure any disease or health condition, including COVID-19/Coronavirus.  Masks are intended for general public use only.  They are non-sterile and are not intended for use in any clinical or surgical setting or where exposure to bodily or hazardous fluids may be expected, where the risk of exposure through inhalation is high, or near intense heat or flammable gas. Masks are not surgical masks, personal protective equipment, or filtering respirators (such as N95 masks).

    3. Really? Remember this?
      Again, sorry for your losses and loved ones. But it does not creat a moral compass to force mandates and create tyranny against individual choice and medical privacy!! I don’t need to know any of these outcomes, we already have the pros and cons!!

So yeah stop say “NO” to mandates!

    4. @blossom beauty Hey Stoopid. Florida had 56,210 new Covid cases yesterday. Here in Ontario we had 321.

      The difference is we have mask mandates and a 85% vaccination rate and climbing.

    5. @juul cat And you completely miss the point of masks. Their primary value is limiting the range of viruses when you exhale. When we all wear them the ability of the virus to disperse is greatly reduced.

  6. The fact that these people have kids is frightening. Wondering if they yell at their own kids the same way they yell to others when they disagree. Poor kids. They have idiots to watch over them…

    1. I

    2. @Animated Adventures let me know how you feel after your kid gets it and dies! Now if your kid gives it to my kid and my kid dies…LOL I’ll be seeing you 😉 MY choice!!!

    3. @Re Posted No, no, you’ve missed the point! I have the right to go to school. You don’t have the right to endanger me by being stupid. But as it is, unmasked and unvaccinated are dying faster than masked and vaccinated. So I’m actually ok with you not wearing a mask and not vaccinating yourself. In fact I highly recommend it and hope you get COVID. Now when you do, don’t come crying to the ER. Because if you don’t want to take precautions, you shouldn’t get help either. F-ing fight it out and good luck! On the other hand if your unvaccinated, unmasked kid gets my kid sick…

  7. There are few more hospitalble entrances to your body – than the warm open passageways of your nose and throat – its actually similiar to an open wound – the virus has direct unobstructed accesss – the soft moist mucous membrane in the nose and mouth, effectively allows the virus to stick easily and spead down to the lungs.

  8. Gov. DeSatan is a fine example of results of living life in a cocoon of privilege. Unprepared, ignorant and indifferent to the plight of his constituents. Let them die in their pseudo freedom and breathe of misinformation. This is murder
