Ok, go ahead, get sick. There is a right to be free from compulsory vaccination? I’m glad our great-grandparents survived 1917. I suppose this person won’t wear a mask either.
I make my shopping decisions easily: If the business has a mask mandate, I’ll shop. No mandate, no shopping. I’m old and have health problems. People who refuse the masks and vaccinations are endangering public health, I’m part of the public.
So go ahead, refuse whatever you want, but don’t come near me and rest assured, I won’t be doing business with you.
PKPosted at 21:09h, 01 October
The comparison to 1917 is short to recognize a significant growth in life expectancy, among the US. Facts can be tricky things.,

Dennis Finnegan thank you. I am surprised your comment is left up since the “Dogs” have become heavy in the hand of censorship. Every covid case in hospital costs the taxpayer $350K on average. I say make nonvaccinated pay. That’s only fair. I agree I only shop where masks are required. I would never go to a medical establishment that does not enforce vaccines and masks. I have had my third dose already. What this Pandemic has done is uncover the sad result of the uneducated in our country.
Kirk AllenPosted at 09:30h, 02 October
What evidence do you have that unvaccinated are the ones spreading the virus? The fact of the matter, EVERYONE can spread the virus, vaccinated or not. What about those who have better imunity from having recovered from COVID vs. those vacinated. Why should those who have recovered have to be vacinated? 2.5 Million people in the most recent study proved those who have recovered have better imunity from the virus than those dependent on the vaccine. I’ll wait.

TRUTH TELLER masquerading as COMMON SENSE while claiming the web-site censors comments. Oh, the irony.

Japan, all Scandanavia ( Denmark included), large swaths of India and soon to be Ireland, all opening up and ending most if not all pandemic regulations.
They didn’t pursue fear or one option for all healthcare…they pursued every option. And now they’re free from the pandemic.

I especially like item E!

The masks DO NOT prevent viruses from either entering your lungs or me from exhaling them. The last time I looked, the packages the masks come in explicitely state this. The cloth ones are even worse. Wearing a mask is pure virtue signaling and a way to show your masters you are complying with their orders no matter how nonsensical.
Are you vaccinated? If so, then why do I need to have one too, as you are supposedly protected. Why should I be vaccinated for a disease that has such a low fatality rate. THe last time I looked at the data, the survival rate was 99.97% overall.
I am neither vaccinated nor do I wear a mask, I am not a sheeple who bleats in terror every time our “betters” stir up a panic. I have not worn a mask since April; 2020. Rather than making us help you feel safer (pro tip, you really are not safer), if your health is that bad, stay at home and do not bother the rest of us who are sane and are not walking around quaking in fear of catching a disease.
PKPosted at 21:05h, 01 October
Callous insensitive comment from nowhere.
Joe WootenPosted at 22:35h, 01 October
Funny how it is now callous and insensitive to tell the truth. I refuse to stop calling out BS when I see it. Neither masks or distance work and if you are vaccinated, then why do you need to be protected by having everyone else around you vaxxed too?
PKPosted at 13:07h, 02 October
So now distance doesn’t work? Wow. Helluva claim there.
As you are probably aware, the survival rate among the vulnerable is lower. These are the elderly, the immune-comprimised, and those dealing with other serious health issues, such as cancer.
CindyPosted at 20:39h, 01 October
You’re an idiot, Dennis. There is no such thing as Covid. They made it up. You are a follower and a danger to humanity because you are brainwashed into believing the lies. I’m OLD. Probably older than you and I KNOW there is no such thing as contagion especially for a fake virus.
PKPosted at 21:03h, 01 October
Idiot? No such thing as Covid? I used to find something interesting in outliers, but the field you’re plowing is fallow. No call here to insult Mr. Finegan either. Please stop.
Golden CountryPosted at 06:50h, 02 October
Dennis I am sorry to hear that you have a health condition and unfortunately you fit the profile of those that the disease will impact the most. Equally unfortunate for you to understand is that you and only you have the responsibility to safeguard your own health not anyone else. I am not responsible and the Government is not responsible for your health and those that espouse those views are setting you up for failure.
But you cannot compare the Spanish flu virus to Covid 19. The Spanish flu was most more devastating with some estimates showing it killed at the time 50 to 100 million wide wide which would project to 220 to 440 million today. The Spanish flu affected all age groups not just the elderly. The affects of having the Covid virus is very mild for most of the population unlike the Spanish flu which was a death sentence at the time. Covid is nowhere near as deadly as the Spanish flue but the faulty comparison is click bait to fit the narrative being used to force vaccinations on individuals.
What this virus does show is the ability of individuals in government and corporate institutions to circumvent our constitution and put into place unchecked mandates that have created fear, division and economic calamity. You can see it everywhere it is creating distrust, anger and violence and loss of freedoms.
So take steps to protect yourself and let everyone else live their lives as allowed by the US Constitution and our bill of rights. Soon this virus will be gone but the effects of division and anger being created today will stay with us for a long time.
CindyPosted at 08:11h, 02 October
PK. You are also stupid as a stump. The world has been dumbed down by listening to lies. Check yourself before you spout off on knee-jerk feelings. People have become DANGEROUS in their lack of intelligence. There is no such thing as a virus! No such thing as contagion! You have been lied to! Please stop being a complete moron. None of this fake worldwide planned demic would be happening if people had enough sense to do their own research and study what truth there is out there. And there is plenty to be had. Just because you are too lazy to learn anything on your own don’t be labeling anyone else as an outlier. You are DANGEROUS because you believe decades upon decades of outright lies.
PKPosted at 16:35h, 02 October
Yeah, I’m stupid as a stump, lazy, dangerous, and uneducated.
CindyPosted at 14:52h, 02 October
I am here to tell you that Mr. Allen ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT CENSOR! You learn nothing when you censor others. The Watchdogs are VERY intelligent . Very informative! AND VERY hard-working. You should get on your knees and thank God for people so dedicated and upright as to even try to help in tracking down so many horrific situations and bringing criminality to light. On top of all that they allow even the whiners to post their knee-jerk postulations on philosophies.

Some people feel that getting vaccinated is the right thing to do, and maybe it is for them. However, some people feel that the issue has been mishandled. I happen to think that if the issue was as serious has the media has led us to believe then why wasn’t the legislation used to create a law requiring people to be vaccinated. Could it be because of liability issues, maybe. Maybe the media just failed at selling the idea to the public. I would like to get the shot but not out in the back alley behind Walgreens, Where are all the doctors? When my doctor is able to give me a shot then I will get the shot. Till then piss off
