    This would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic

    i heard about the 'republican pounce' journalistic tool on a podcast. They said, and it's true: Once you recognize the 'republican pounce' you can never unsee it in any article or news story....

    yup. great point. this is how the media works:

    if a republican does something stupid, be critical of the republican.

    if a democrat does something stupid, be critical of the republican that called it out.

    i had a vaccine apointment today for 3 at walmart. i am not going i canceled it. i thought about it alot. i dont see why i should. i am healthy.

    i bought a mountain bike last week, thats better than a vaccine for my health.

    i dont go go the doctor unless i am dying or broke a limb. i dont want to be overmedicated. i dont want antibiotics ever unless i am dying. i had to take them once 10 years ago and because i had pneumonia forever and my breathing was getting dangerously bad. i believe we have natural gut flora that keeps us healthy and that anti-biotics kill it. i believe we are evolved to deal with disease.

    for a disease like poliio, fine, get your vaccine. for kungflu? nah i am gonna survive that 99.9 times out of 100. my parents should be vaccinated though.

    now its a tricky ethical situation, because people i know and matter to me will not take it well that i refuse vaccine, should i lie to them? i am not sure.

    I understand you have to show ID to be vaccinated. Did this obviously racist policy discourage you in anyway?

    Covid was and is nothing but another way to scare us into subservience, to destroy Trump and all conservatives. Not a conspiracy nut by any means but the timing and the country Covid eminated from smells like a buzzards breath. Gonna get worse before it gets better. Masks are nothing but a symbol of subservience. If you can breath through a mask you can breath in the virus. The whole thing is a lie.

    There are other "viruses" on the way so buckle up. So you subservient liberals don't throw your mask away just yet. I for one say fuck mask, fuck liberals and especially fuck Fauci.
