This is great! I guess those face diapers really do work right CT?? Nothing but a bunch of very slow sheep in CT. I hope you enjoy your "dark winter". I'm gong to enjoy laughing at you all winter while your numbers go up and yet you all still walk around in your slave muzzles! Bahhhhh

Brian C. Duffy

Anyone hear from SunnyDay or Fringe lately?

Brian Duffy~~Tariffville

Verdad

Hush now child.

egemme8888

Triggered!! 😂😂🐑

onemorelap

I'm going with what Fauci and Lamont are saying. This vaccine isn't trustworthy because it was rushed through by Trump to score brownie points. Wash your hands, mouth and face mask and we'll all be fine.

egemme8888

Ya, cause the slave muzzles are working so well right now....

Verdad

You seem upset and ill informed. Good luck with all your future tantrums and schadenfreude.

egemme8888

Good luck shopping with me with no mask and no quarantine ;)

Verdad

Good luck to you. You will be the ignorant maskless a$$hole. Easy to find and or avoid. Your mother must be proud. Trigger yourself. Consider an education.

egemme8888

Impossible! Fake news! Everyone in ct wears a face diaper so this can't possibly be true!

Dan7543

People are becoming complacent with their mask wearing and social distancing. Every other country on earth has fared better than we have. Even China, where this all began, only has 5,000 deaths.

egemme8888

Don't worry, this is just fake news. Literally every single person in Ct wears a mask. There is no possible way cases could be spiking like this cause masks stop it....

Verdad

Do you understand that what you write is just your opinion? You are fake news. We will stick with science. Thanks for embarrassing yourself again and good luck moving! Can't wait for your final misinformed post tomorrow, when you promised you were leaving right? OK good. Wear your mask and wash those hands.

egemme8888

I don't wear a mask mostly to trigger peeps like you! And I don't quarantine when I come back to CT either. Your liberal rules mean nothing to me!

Verdad

Nope. You don"t wear a mask because you are childish, self centered, rude, misinformed and inconsiderate. When you have to deal with people that exhibit these unpleasant traits remember that you are one of them. Try to modify you behavior to realize that the world does NOT revolve around you. Your willful ignorance has consequences. Consider growing up if you are able.

egemme8888

Bro, I just told you I don't wear a slave muzzle cause your kind means nothing to me! I'm not in this together with you. Anyone that thinks they have a right to tell me how to live my life gets me shopping with them with no mask!

egemme8888

Fyi, I came back to Ct, didn't quarantine, went and voted with no mask, and no consequences. Sucks to be you buddy!

Dan7543

I have said it for years. The republican party has one brain that they pass around between each of the talking heads. However, now, it seems that they lost it and nobody know who the last person to have it was. egghead is living proof that his mom what just a c** dumpster that should have had an abortion or swallowed.

SunnyDay

Go Lamont!! He's the hero! CT is doing the Best!!!
