Editor: Just a few more questions. I keep hoping for answers. Why are people going to lose jobs for refusing a rushed-to-develop vaccine against a virus with 98.4% recovery rate but people coming illegally are welcome without any vaccine against anything? Polio had a mere 23% recovery rate. Smallpox had a paltry 43% recovery rate. Why can those vaccines be refused, along with a number of others?

Have you considered the media focus on this most divisive issue keeps the spotlight off the mess at the border, the failing economy, crisis at the ports that could effect availability of goods , the emotional assault on our children, the continuous canceling of American history, just to name a few?? When large numbers of police, fire and medical workers are forced to resign do you think that may effect the quality of life in our nation? What about workers in retail stores and service jobs having to leave? I had understood there is already serious understaffing in many of those jobs? What will happen when prison jobs are vacated by those already often working 16 hours at a time due to understaffing? Do those in power figure they won’t be needed because they plan to simply empty the prisons?

At this writing the Americans abandoned in Afghanistan have been there 66 days. Isn’t that important? Who is speaking up for the Afghan women being forced to sell their children in order to survive? Folks, I think everyone must consider that mandates or executive orders are not laws and just saying no to them could get our country back on track. The rate our freedoms are being taken away is breathtaking! What will you do?

Simple, only 7% of the population wanted to be free, the remaining ones, just like most you see commenting, are helpless sheep. CONTROL. You see the difference between you and people like Bob, is that you ask questions. Your not tribal, ignorant, and gullible. Facts and science matter. Florida is now leading the nation with the fewest new covid cases. Yet, no masks, no mandates, no Liberal Democrats running things. It's plain and simple to those who open their eyes. More children have died from influenza than ever have from Covid. Take comfort in knowing that if you are on the opposite side of Bob and his tribal followers, you will be on the right side of history again and again. You see short bus folks have short memories. Covid was sold on a 96% effective rate against infection. Where is that now? They would rather follow a proven liar like Fauci than Peer reviewed science studies. Darwin will take care of them. Stay smart, stay safe, and keep asking questions. Knowledge is power.

Hey bigblob since when is Biden's mandate the law of the land. If President Trump you know the guy you like to refer to as the twice impeached POS had put out a mandate about anything you would be crying foul every second of the day. But I guess that's who you are, just a liberal old man who sits at his computer at all hours of the day and night to complain about something. You are so enamored with slo-Joe that you just can't see what a complete failure he is. Bet you are just like him and have forgotten all the Americans still trapped in Afghanistan. What about all these invaders at the border. You have to realize that the only reason the border is wide open is to import more demorat voters. Now he is off to another summit to embarrass himself and the country. Have you read that his staff shudders when he tries to speak in public. They know first hand that he is brain dead and needs to be led around like a child. And this is who you voted for. The complete demorat party is failing this country and taking it down a dark hole. They think that if they throw enough money at it everything will be just fine. I wish that I could just keep buying things with no real intentions of paying for it. But see I was taught to don't spend more then I take in. What's the countries debt now, I couldn't even count that high.

BigBob

jojo - "But see I was taught to don't spend more then I take in." Wow! I have never in my life met anyone who is totally debt-free! Never had a house payment, a car payment, furniture? And thankfully no medical bills. what a charmed life you have led.

NorthLong

Bozo. That doesn't mean total freedom from debt, it means you can afford the debt and pay your bills.

Third Eye

If you haven't got it by now Karen then there is no helping you. Good luck.

Biden said yes, police, firefighters, and medical personal should be fired if they do not get the vaccine. This was on a CNN town hall not Fox News. I'm sorry but that is insane.

BigBob

coolio – Accuracy has never been high on your list has it? Let’s look at what actually transpired - Speaking during a presidential CNN town hall, moderator Anderson Cooper noted that as many as one in three emergency responders in some major cities are refusing to comply with city vaccine mandates. "I'm wondering where you stand on that," Cooper said. "Should police officers, first responders be mandated to get vaccines? And if not, should they be mandated to stay at home, let go?"

"Yes, and yes," Biden replied expressing his OPINION and going on to suggest his controversial vaccine mandate be implemented ONLY AS A LAST RESORT and went on to say those who oppose vaccine mandates are attempting to make vaccines "a political issue."

In July, Biden announced businesses with more than 100 employees will be required to mandate coronavirus vaccines or administer weekly tests. Employers are also required to pay employees for time off to get vaccinated and recover from side effects. What has transpired is the mandates are working.

The president, elected by the American people to replace an ignorant buffoon who is responsible for the deaths of nearly 750,000 American men, women and children because of his lies about COVID, scoffed at those who oppose vaccine mandates on the basis of "freedom." "I have the freedom to kill you with my COVID," Biden said, mocking what he sees as the attitude of mandate opponents. "No, I mean, come on, freedom."

NorthLong

"Cooper said. "Should police officers, first responders be mandated to get vaccines? And if not, should they be mandated to stay at home, let go?"

Biden - "Yes, and yes," Biden replied.

Sounds pretty clear cut to me. As far as you expressing it was Biden's OPINION is nothing more than your opinion. Spinning it to suit your own narrative.

I don’t watch CNN but saw clips on Fox News of the empty suit DIM-Joe standing there fists clenched in a “Cornholio” imitation, stuttering and sputtering trying in vain to maintain a line of thought without the crutch of the ever present “teleprompter” and lying Anderson Cooper feeding him key words to keep him on track. Not much of a confidence builder as the Leader of the free word stands there making an ass of himself? Of course we have BigBob, blubbering away along with the Twit and HavasuMoron [batman] defending the indefensible with lies, propaganda and Dim talking point, situation normal, just another day in Havasu [thumbdown][censored][wink] Deaton

LHHS

Ya, the same folks who were saving BibBobs lives when no vaccine was available. You see they are proof that those with no morals or values or respect eat their own. So thanks first responders for saving out lives when we couldn't save yours, but F off now. That's how the party of slavery and jim crow roll tho. How's Brandon doing these days? Thanks for the highest inflation in 18yrs, and so much more depressing news. Tribal folks never learn.

Kathy,

I think you have answered your own question: ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC and MSNBC have aired little or no coverage of the invasion of our southern boarder; therefore, in the minds of those that rely solely upon those networks as their news source….the problem simply doesn’t exist.

However, on second thought, based upon the comments of some on this very site… apparently they are aware that FOX has aired numerous videos showing thousands of immigrants coming to this country or huddled under a bridge, interviews with border officials/border town residence and even interviews with some border crossers, but rather them admit there is a serious problem, they choose to shot the messenger by demeaning FOX!

Shooting the messenger appears to be the modus operandi…regardless of the messenger or the issue!

I see 10 question marks in this post, I'm assuming that they indicate a question, and not a request for someone elses BS!! What people just do not understand, alot of vaccinated people are protesting the "mandate", not the vaccine itself. Mandates are exactly what they imply: Force. There a about 1000 different ways to achieve what Biden wants, but he's too stupid to figure it out. No Mandates!!

BigBob

46 (IQ?) - It is a good thing you weren't around for the smallpox, Spanish flu and polio outbreaks or we'd still be fighting those.

Unfortunately you weren't either.

HavasuGuy

I have a question Kathy, have you considered seeing a mental health professional for your fears? Have you considered skipping those QAnon meetings? Fear, fear, fear…

NorthLong

You seem to have a lot of knowledge about QAnon meetings. Are you attending them HG?

BigBob

No Kathy, you did not have any "questions," all you did was spew a bunch of inaccurate trash you gleaned from FAUX News, NewsMax, and a bunch of right-wing loon pundits.

Yesman123

No questions. They know better then you. Do as you are told and pay your taxes.
