GOP docs in Congress promote
COVID-19 vaccine, say it's the
best way to end limits on freedoms

Original Article

Republican doctors and health pros in Congress promoted the COVID-19 vaccines Tuesday as safe and effective tools to wind down the pandemic and “end the government’s restrictions on our freedoms.” The public-service announcement from Sens. Roger Marshall of Kansas, John Barrasso of Wyoming, John Boozman of Arkansas and seven House Republicans does not mention former President Donald Trump by name but highlights his efforts to shepherd multiple vaccines to approval in under a year.(Snip) The Biden White House has acknowledged that it might not be the best messenger in getting Trump supporters vaccinated. Instead, it has tried to enlist trusted groups


That's our GOP, staunch defenders of the republic. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, provided they agree to inject this questionable gene therapy."

Just take the vaccine. We promise everything will be great after you take the experimental vaccine and our friends across the aisle will decide to give you back your freedom. Right after you take it. Promise.

Recent studies show that innoculations are lagging in the Black community and with young adults 18 to 34. So we have PSA targeted at conservative, Republicans. Would love to see how these production contracts were administered. You know it went contract. With a government as small as ours, there is no way we could have done that in-house, right.

Tell you what...we'll take it right after all the Democrats have taken it. You know, just in case it's the great delayed sterilization project they've always dreamed of for conservatives.

Lots of “docs” and health care pros who are not in congress disagree with this advice, and predict an upcoming calamity. The insane artificial limits on freedom could be ended immediately without having a “shot” of this pretend vaccine.

"End limits on freedom!" that sure says a lot. So the vaccine is all about control. Whats in the vaccine. Is there a way that we will be followed and spied upon because of the vaccine? After reading that line, I am more skeptical about taking the vaccine.

Boozeman is an optometrist, by the way. He hasn't practiced in years and I will wager he knows nothing about the human immune response and even less about the mechanisms of the vaccines.

So now they are saying the ones who have had the jab can breathe on those of us who choose not to and give us the crud. Say what! Does anyone know what is going on, what will happen, how many jabs you will finally need to be safe and a gazillion other questions. They are evidently getting antsy because not everyone is bending over for them. I agree with poster - I will think about it when all the democraps have had it and I see if they are still living and healthy.

Remember how we were promised that vaccinations would let us get back to normal? Yes, except we all have to still wear masks, socially distance, and possibly get boosters after six months. Yeah, that's freedom for sure.......not.

Just another reason I happily left the useless and impotent Republi-Can't Party last November after being a proud Republican for over 60 years. If you sell your soul to the devil for riches and fame, you may have riches and fame, but the devil still has your soul. The Republi-Can't Party long ago sold their souls. And, sadly, other than in a few moral issues, they are no better than the Demon-Rat Party now!!!

Hasbro said Tuesday it would raise prices of toys and games to counter higher raw material costs as the company sees surging demand for its Nerf blasters and board games from families spending more time at home. Shares of the Monopoly maker, which late on Monday announced the sale of Entertainment One Music to Blackstone Group for $385 million, rose 1 percent in midday trading. The toymaker, like most US manufacturers, has had to contend with rising resin, packaging and metal prices, as well as soaring transportation costs due to high demand and supply disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.(Snip) “Freight and input cost

President Joe Biden will call for free preschool for all three and four-year-old children on Wednesday—a $200 billion investment to be rolled out as part of his sweeping American Families Plan.

The administration said the historic investment would benefit five million children and save the average family $13,000. It calls for providing federal funds to help the states offer preschool, with teachers and other

Kevin Andre McKenzie is just the latest alleged would-be songbird smuggler busted using the hair-accessory method to bring in the coveted creatures, which are used in high-stakes singing contests popular in Brooklyn and Queens. McKenzie allegedly told them he had been offered $3,000 to traffic the finches into the US.

On a recent walk, I came across a neighborhood littered with the yard sign in this photo. It seems the provocative platitudes we’ve seen on bumper stickers for a century have now taken root in our yards. And for the same reason: To tell the world that the sign-planter holds wonderful beliefs that he’s willing to impose upon and attribute to the rest of his family. It’s surely not because the sign-planter thinks he’s persuading anyone of the rightness of his position, as if the neighbors reading the sign will say to themselves, “Gee, ‘Democracy dies in darkness’ is a great point. I’d never thought of it that way.”

It then appropriates the number of seats each state gets in the House of Representatives and that is directly connected to the Electoral College calculation. They stick to the numbers since they are part of the U.S. Federal Statistical System.Cuomo seems to believe there is something nefarious going on rather than straight-up demographics.
