    The reality of what is happening is beginning to take hold. People want to make their own choices and don’t want to be told what to do. This coming from a sense of self-reliance and pioneering history. Delta has other plans. It’s surging in rural areas. Another dark winter is coming in 2022. That should be your focus. It’s like having a bad sinus infection for four weeks if your lucky. When your not vaxed. Seventy-two hours it lasts if your vaxed. What the heck. Go on a cruise. HaHaHa All aboard the ship…Dumfoundland!

      It’s like 9 months carrying a baby till it’s born.

      It’s only as long as it takes to get you to the abortion clinic if not.

      I guess it’s the same principal, huh. My body, my choice.

      SORRY, that’s only about what Democrats WANT. This is MY BODY, Mein Führers’ choice.

        Don’t get woke, don’t get the poke. Please, don’t. Become a statistic, as Republican voter numbers decline, getting buried one anti-vaxxer at a time. Maybe you and your Trumpster buddy can get a two-fer from the funeral home. Now go find a Trump rally and breathe deeply. Thanks in advance.
