Why didn’t we ever shelter in place, bomb out the economy, destroy livelihoods, and spread fear in the name of the two leading causes of death? Shouldn’t she have been stripping even more of our liberties? Shame on her.

Social distancing is a way of life for many who choose to live in less populated areas. I understand the need for vaccines in areas of concentrated population but here in the barely classified as rural areas, the need is not as great. I do recognize that even in sparsely populated areas, there are people who just cannot not gather and must stand within 6″ of each other and for them getting a vaccine may be a good choice, but it should always be their choice. I do not understand this and please comment if you know the answer; if having had Covid 19 leaves a person with a time period of resistance, then why are people not tested for antibodies before they are given a vaccine?

The CDC ‘paused’ the J&J vaccine earlier today because of blood clotting deaths. Let me know when the FDA fully approves any of these vaccines. Until then, I refuse to be a guinea pig.

VAERS covid vaccine data from Dec 14th 2020 to April 1st 2021:

~ 56,869 reports of adverse events
~ 2,342 deaths
~ 7,971 serious injuries

This is 6000% more adverse events than the 1st quarter of 2020, and more than ALL of the vaccine induced deaths in the last 10 years combined. mRNA vaccines are not safe.

Wow…… imagine that! And now i am hearing for those people who did get vaccinated, there is a new strain that is harder on you if you HAVE taken the shot………. SMH? And they now say to keep the muzzle on even AFTER you have been vaccinated? This don’t pass the smell test to me
