    1. Everyone who wants one should be able to get it. I’m not worried about antivaxers getting it. They don’t want it. But just maybe this will be the thing to help them see clearly.

  1. If you agree with the National Anthem and the “black national anthem” Being sung before the Michigan electors vote. You are 100% the reason why racism is still such a huge issue.

    1. @ruth depew Quite the opposite. I want Black people to be as America as possible! Which means ONE national anthem. I don’t believe we need to segregate black people with their own anthem. You’re in favor of segregation then?

  2. “The Overall Goal Of This Vaccine Is To Decrease The Harm This Virus Is Causing”

    Next up: Gravity Is What Holds Things Down

    1. @IncognitoTorpedo, then why is this vaccine only given “Emergency Authorization”?
      Answer, it’s not been through the complete testing!

    2. @Don B oh here we go, right? Covid is suddenly “not an emergency”? Is that bc the rigged election has served its purpose and you want Pres Elect Kamala to hire all the “approved” drug companies, etc., that Pelosi has on standby and get all the credit?
      You are all SOOO predictable.

  3. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together.

  4. If we are going to designate vulnerable populations after the long term care crowd, we should include every American adult who is 50% above their ideal weight. Nearly every “perfectly healthy” young adult who has died fits well into the morbidly obese group.

  5. I thought inoculations was suppose to protect people from getting infected. So if the goal for this vaccine is to reduce the severity of the virus harm to the body. Then what good is that if I still have the virus and I’m still spreading and infecting others around me?

    1. Exactly. Turns people into asymptomatic carriers if they catch covid. People will most likely let their guard down way to soon. There is still no evidence if the vulnerable will actually benefit from the vaccine.
