  1. Awe. Poor GOP babies. Republicans acted the same way in the 1970s with seatbelt law. Please. History and stupidity repeats itself.

    1. @Hei C you implied 80 million are going to die. Guess you got me there huh? Not.

      The FACT is the chance of a human being catching covid and dieing (most have three comorbidities) is 0.001 %.

    2. @Hei C there you go off on a tangent a out getting other vaccines. The topic is the covid vaccine. Psy attention.

  2. You don’t exactly have to be Nostradamus to predict there is about to be a thriving market in counterfeit vaccination certificates.

  3. And what has been the GOP’s message the whole time. Dont wear a mask, dont get vaccinated and try your luck.

    1. Boy Mark you are blind. This is all agenda driven. They created the crisis to solve it. It’s dress rehearsal for the mark of the beast. People that get vac still get Covid. High immunity people still haven’t got Covid. Duh.

    2. Yes. They are the biggest part of our lack of progress in ALL areas of growth in this country. They are a boil on the bum of the US.

    3. Fauci: “”The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus”

    4. Stop buying into partisan hackery. They’re all corrupt narcissists who don’t care whether you live or die. If they did there would be tax-funded healthcare for the working poor and private insurance wouldn’t exist.

      The GOP has encouraged voluntary mask wearing & vaccination, just not punitive/mandated measures. I never thought I’d side with them, but here we are.

    1. @Injeian25 Well they can only guess which way the mutation will go, once it does get to human population it’s kinda too late. The Spanish flu of 1919 was only killing old and the weak just like how covid started. In 2 years, the 3rd wave killed only 20-30 the young and healthy, est 20-100 million died from the Spanish Flu. Doctors can only see that the virus mutated, they don’t know what it would do… until it’s too late. History might just repeat itself, if nothing is done.

  4. I’m so confused. I just wear a mask all the time, but if I forget it, at least I don’t have to go back to my car to get it.

  5. Remember when GOP/MAGA were telling us that we should be willing to die for the economy? I am fine w GOP/MAGA dying for the economy…

    1. @Sleepy Joe remember when Trump pulled troops out of Germany and treated them like sh*t and Biden had to make a choice that empowered Germany and Merkle to restore confidence in our alliance?

    1. @cat videos The genome of the delta variant is different than the original variant, such that the spike protein binds to ACE2 receptors more easily.

  6. I understand about getting angry. I went to a restaurant that clearly said wearing mask when you get up away from table. A group of 6 teens probably early 20’s get up without mask walk by my 74 year old vaccinated father. My father has a better sense to wear his mask away from the table. These people can be very selfish.

  7. I am so tired of these big cry baby lawmakers, just eat your broccoli like a good little boy/girl! If they don’t like the rules, they should resign.
