  1. Unfortunately he’s killing their very own No Mask Supporters! If you don’t believe in Covid or Masking up, then Why do You need medical help when You catch Covid?

    1. You want to stop treating obese ppl? They knew/know comorbidity aids in death and hospitalizations from the virus. Same concept.

    2. @crazy wheel to the max I was fully vaccinated and I have Covid now. And I was masked up. I got it from my daughter who also was vaccinated. So what are vaccinated people supposed to do now?

    3. @Boro Sweden took other options. Lockdown should be a last resort. Only to be used when the population proves to be a danger to themselves and others. People there masked up, took it seriously and took measures of prevention (like social distancing). Far as I read, anyway.

  2. No Republicans voted for the relief bill or the child tax credit bill. But they took the money and the credit!

    1. @YouTube Censorship Sux I appreciate your opinion and I’m trying to find out if enough people agree with what I think must be done to lower the national debt. Thanks for the opinion

    2. The republican politicians, starting with Trump, want their supporters to be killed by Covid-19, being in jail by encourage them to attack the capitol and/or robbed from their savings through found raising scams. I will not want to vote for this kind political leaders.

    3. So you deserve extra money because you couldn’t keep it in your pants? If you can’t afford to take care of yourself, please don’t multiply.

    1. @Peter B There should be more patients who give their permission for their suffering to be shown on TV and it should be run for an hour straight every day on all channels at various times of day, but I wonder how many of the anti-vaxxers would be terrified and how many would smugly comment, “That’s their problem. I’m healthy and strong and I haven’t gotten sick yet, so there! Nyah!” what I call the Lucy van Pelt mentality. Lucy is six years old, you’ll recall. Peter B: The rest of the country can’t thank you enough. Send our thanks to all your colleagues too. It would violate your oath, but I am getting to the point where I wish you could just turn the unvaccinated sick around at the door and let them sit untreated in the parking lot if they choose.

    1. Paradoxically, Joe Biden shows a lot of humility… and the same cannot be said for the former president Donald Trump who is the number one narcissistic character in the United States and maybe in the entire world

    1. @Emsley Wyatt not in the Republicans vocabulary. Republican’s only know me me me gimmie your money.

  3. I’ve grown up in a Republican town and “I” has ALWAYS mattered to Republicans. “We” doesn’t exist unless they’re misquoting things like “We the People” to further their support of “I.”

  4. At this point the Republicans should just replace the elephant as the symbol of their party with the COVID ball.

  5. As a Texan and a Greg, I am ashamed to have Greg Abbott as our governor. He is an incompetent clown.

    1. @T Eckhardt Being a proud Texan doesn’t mean you support the elected politicians. Where do you reside?

    3. @T Eckhardt Because we were born here. Why any ignorant fool would say anything as stupid as you just said is “beyond me”. Judging some by where they live no matter what moron they have for Governor is childish and silly. Please stay where you are by all means…

    4. @Den Dens corner V Correct. You are free to act like a fool here. And believe me, a lot of the population do. Many of them are going to pay with their lives. But that is their right… Let them be free….

  6. Why hasn’t Gov. Greg Abbott been charged with culpable homicide: “…with the knowledge that he is likely by such act to cause death, commits the offense of culpable homicide.”?

    1. @Dale Gehrking Gov. Abbott had everything to do with surge in Covid in Texas. It all has to do with last adm

    2. @Dale Gehrking Wow, that was easy. Blame someone else for your incompetence. That is a new one for me.

    3. The republican politicians, starting with Trump, want their supporters to be killed by Covid-19, being in jail by encourage them to attack the capitol and/or robbed from their savings through found raising scams. I will not want to vote for this kind political leaders.

    4. @Dale Gehrking Abbott is incompetent as a governor. He has caused Texans more problem than any other. He makes Rick Perry look smart.

  7. Greg Abbott is so irresponsible in his handling of Covid 19. I only hope he is voted out and sent back to wherever he comes from. Very annoying.

    2. @Henry Butchy Uh…but you didnt win. You cheated. Trump won. Sorry. Biden is your punishment.

    3. @Sunset Solutions ehhh, I can have fun with diffident and argumentative. But with delusionally stupid, ain’t no fun. Bye

  8. The Mobster Lobster has killed more Americans in a year, than all Americas enemies since 1870. He makes Bin Laden look like a social worker…

  9. They’re literally willing to die for what they believe in: The right to be stupid and not wear a mask.

  10. *The governors of Florida and Texas should face reckless homicide charges, they’ve got blood on their hands.*

  11. For a “cripple” it is crazy that he literally is putting other “cripples” on death row with this virus….
