When your "fun facts" are sourced from Project Bullsh*t or a subreddit they are not facts. #duped

Wellduh

Fun fact: Between 100-200 United States Congress Members (plus many of their staffers & family members) with COVID.. were treated by a colleague over the past 15 months with ivermectin & the I-MASK+ protocol. None have gone to hospital. Just sayin'

Brian C. Duffy

Did Q tell you?

Dan7543

That information requires a citation, duh. If you can't produce it, we can dismiss it.

Verdad

Being repeatedly duped by project bullsh*t because they tell you want you want to hear is pathetic.

Wellduh

Pfizer Scientist Nick Karl on natural immunity. Hold me vaxxbros.

Verdad

You are holding it together well. Step away from the ledge son, you can't unvaccinate yourself and you are ok. Panicky and scared is not a good look.

Dan7543

Youtube is not a citation.

Verdad

If you don't want to deal with weekly testing you can and should have already been vaccinated. Super easy and it does not require any tantrum. You have made a choice so please stop whining.

FU Lamont

Ever wonder who owns the majority of testing sites that Lamont is pushing people towards? Sema4.

Who profits off of Sema4? Anne Huntress.

Who is Anne Huntress? No other than the soon to be billionaire wife of Ned Lamont.

Why is no one in the media asking about that?

Dan7543

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Man, someone could sell you ocean front property in the Dakotas.

FU Lamont

Hey Neddy - Good luck replacing 8,000 workers with only 5,000 NG troops. Who by the way will be forced to leave their own jobs because of you egotistical power trip. You can fill out spots, but those NG troops can't perform most of our jobs without years of experience. And why is it that the "non compliant" workers are being replaced with troops that aren't even mandated to be vaccinated until June 2022? Are the citizens of T ready to face the fact that those NG nurses that he will be using will come from a hospital? IT IS TIME FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS STATE TO TELL HIM NO MORE. END THE EMERGENCY DECLARATION. THERE IS NO EMERGENCY. DETHRONE THE KING.

Brian C. Duffy

The war over Covid measures in CT is over. We won.

Continue to call your representative. Continue to call your senator. Tell them to keep the pressure on Lamont. The emergency is over. There is no longer a substantial threat to the residents of CT. Time to end the emergency powers. TIME TO DETHRONE THE KING.

Do you want to know the problem with natural immunity? It's free. Stay strong purebloods.

Verdad

Stay selfish and gullible.It is also free.

Dan7543

Says the vaccinated guy. Irony is a word you need to look up, duh.

Verdad

If you are wondering why Connecticut is doing so well with Covid the answer is our high vaccination rate. Vaccines work if you participate and get yours.

FU Lamont

Vaccinations should be by choice not by mandate. If you believe in the vaccine, you should not be afraid of those who are not vaccinated.

Verdad

It is by choice. You made a choice to avoid the mandate. Now you do weekly testing. We are not afraid of you, just disappointed in your lack of concern for others and your non participation. We'll get through this without your help and you will undoubtedly continue to whine. Leave for Florida anytime. There are several vaccines that are mandated to attend school and you took all of them.

FU Lamont

Not all unvaccinated are provided the option to weekly test. Not all vaccinated want to be dependent on a steady stream of booster shots. I have concern for others, however it is not my job to protect them. They got the jabs. They can wear a mask if they think the vax doesn't protect them. Yes there are several mandated school vaccines, but they were all extensively tested, unlike the current vax. There is no long term safety data. Not one mnra vaccine had been approved prior to the current covid vax, because they all failed. Miracle upon miracle, we all of a sudden have one approved and two more on the way. But regardless of whether or not the vax is safe the emergency is over.

Verdad

Selfish and whiny is no way to go through life.

Dan7543

I say let the unvaccinated live with their decision and covid. Let them use their medical insurance and bankrupt themselves.
