Which which shift the payment, and possibly the cost, to insurance companies and/or the recipient of the vaccine correct?

I wonder why a person would take Ivermectin, but be adamantly opposed to a vaccine?

  • Dick Ferrel
  • Phil Valentine
  • Scott Apley
  • Marc Bernier
  • Caleb Wallace

Because they don't trust anything the government says...

If gov says get the vaccine, they are suspicious and refuse.

If gov says don't take ivermectin they are suspicious so they take it.

And they think we're the fools.


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...

To be fair, that one was prescribed by Dr. Don.

It is a project of the GOP that has been in operation since Ronald Reagan's "The government is the problem" asininity. They wanted to create suspicion of government to undercut the Democratic party. The result has been catastrophic for their party and the United States (witness 1/6). We won't get over it soon.


A well reasoned argument is like a diamond: impervious to corruption and crystal clear - and infinitely rarer.

Here, as elsewhere, people are outraged at what feels like a rigged game -- an economy that won't respond, a democracy that won't listen, and a financial sector that holds all the cards. - Robert Reich

My wife told me that anti-vaxxers, that goto the hospital are now responsible for some of the bills that are run up in their covid care. If they die then the estate is charged. She said one person had a million dollar bill to pay and nothing was left for the family. Makes perfectly good sense to me!
