      @Lula Williams Hey friend, I just reported the Ku Klux Klan user for hate speech ✌️

    • @TrackForField Man, you trashy right wingers never stop making up new lies, do ya?

    • Ku Klux Klan just so you know I reported you for your rope comment. While everyone has a right to believe what they want, and claim to be apart of whatever organization they wish… saying something like that promotes violence and encourages other despicable people or bigots to surface. Which anyone with a brain will recognize that just furthers the agenda of instigating all this crap we respectable humans are already trying to find a way to stop.

  2. Hope y’all have fun in Jacksonville at the convention!

      @Master Meta TL,DR

    • What about all the worldwide scientists and studies that say it’s BS?! Should we believe the independent scientists or the ones provided by the MSM? Have you asked why there were no major outbreaks from all the demonstrations that had touching, hugging and handshakes in rebellion to the lockdown? Shouldn’t there have been?

      What about the George Floyd protests? Where is the massive outbreak from those gatherings all over the country? Shouldn’t there be?

      @Obama’s Ugly White Momma Actually, she was not fired for lying as you claim. She was fired for insubordination. Her bosses didn’t like her attitude toward the way the state is calculating the risk of COVID-19. Details matter.

    • Alexis Miller congrats bro ur making more money than someone who isn’t even in college yet lmfao. When I said not real science I meant in relation to corona research. They would not give classified information to a geography major cuz there’s no point to in this case. They give her the numbers, her job was to map them out. She would not have known more than the public. My point is not to attack geography majors 😂 it’s to show that this news story is fake af and the media are playing people.

      And she deserves to have this moment. Corrupt DeSantis is towing the Trump line towards killing more Floridians (and Americans in general) just so they can pump up the economy up to help win an election. To help with how many American’s die. It’s a cold calculated political decision. And impossibly hypocritical by a Republican party who has always pretended to tout “the sanctity of human life”. This reveals what they truly care about, and it is NOT human life.

    • @Kent Horvath Some of these people really believe what they are saying even if it is 2+2 =5 . My My neighbor in LA,CAtold me her father died from virus. I said oh so sorry for your family. How old was ur dad. She says 90 at which point i again said, oh so sorry for you. THen she went on to say that he had had a bad heart attack, had been in hosptial and then had developed pneumonia. All prior to the virus. But in her mind, the virus killed him! LOL. And she has a PhD so this type of religious zealotry on the virus seems to over ride the usual thought process.

      People can do this and be successful and become heroes without anything happening to them if they are wise. This young lady is a genius. No doubt. I can tell that, but she has the idealistic ideas in her head, and unfortunately I think jumped the gun. First she should’ve designed a bug program that she could access from another computer, told them if they harass or fire her, she will make sure that they lose everything. Always have a way out! Always! I think she’s awesome, but unfortunately, she really doesn’t see what those people might be capable of doing.

      @Snabdn Dhdjdbb Let’s just hope no thug harms her. I’ve had to deal with that type of element before. When I was in my 20’s, I a skinny hippie type guy, but I was bright eyed and full of academic vinegar. Just like her. I almost got myself killed. There have been people who were murdered over these things. Some ruthless people don’t care about how smart some might be, or doing what’s right. They just want their way, and they got their wealth by hurting others. She is young and naive. Yes, she’s brilliant, but some people don’t care what they do. I hope she’s taken precautions to protect herself. It scares me. I don’t want anything to happen to such a very nice person as herself.

  11. I love how she is so thorough and logical with her speech.
    This is what we need in the news. Little to no emotion.
    What has been going wrong is everyone is going after problems, solely relying on emotion.
    Emotion is a dangerous thing. It clouds the mind of all logical reasoning, and offers up a cascading cesspool of angry people that have forgotten Why they are angry in the first place.
    It’s people, like this woman here, that is needed to actually make a difference in this corrupted world.
    Much love to you all. Remember what we all collectively strive for…Peace.

    • Sexual harassment and cyber stalking are pretty emotional acts. Maybe she knows how to turn it on and off, like some psychopaths for instance.

    • Maybe. I’m just going off of what I see right here. I personally don’t intend to dig any deeper. Every path is a dead end anyway.

    • @TSimo113 emotion is a crutch and a tool for manipulation more than it is anything else. Psychopaths and sociopaths still have feelings; it’s just that they don’t mesh with the rest of society, and thus they are generally not effective at fitting in with the rest of society. It’s so easy for the media and government to just manipulate you by playing on your emotions, so much so that their whole loop of operations centers around it. Without this emotional incompetence, people are more likely to physically defend themselves against violence, they’re more likely to defend their families and property violently as well.

      With this emotional incompetence, people are more willing to hide away in their suffering, and try to avoid conflict as much as possible, to the point of allowing for themselves to be kowtowed into nearly complete compliance.

She’s pushing back against it with the best defense: a working, usable product proving her credibility and expertise.

      When I was in my twenties, I designed a computer program that was very amazing. The guy I designed it for told me in so many words that he made millions of dollars from my work. I believe major parts of it was sold to corporations who are involved in designing artificial intelligence. The guy I worked for was later linked to the mafia. My name was slandered, and my life was threatened several times. When I talk to young talented people, I always advise them to design safe guards that will insure that no one can steal their work. I wish I’d known then what I know now. I would’ve put a bug in that program and annihilated it before he could sell it. I have other great ideas too that would probably even take A.I. into the next level, but I’m remaining reticent. The only way I’ll ever do work like that again is if I know that I’ll receive proper compensation, and it will be used to do good things in this world.

  18. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is hiding the sobering Covid-19 truth from Floridians and all other folks.

    • keep pushing that propaganda in your heads.. Can’t believe any real human believes this POS network. THEY ARE OPINION AND FAR FROM REALITY
