Rant warning. I am lying in a hospital room after a wicked [View all]

case of covid. I have had all the vaccines except for the last
one and they no doubt saved my life.

THIS SHIT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BEHIND US BY NOW EXCEPT
FOR THE GOP, FOX NEWS, RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION, AND
SOCIAL MEDIA GARBAGE ABOUT THE VACCINES.

FUCK YOU RON DESANTIS, ABBOTT, NOEM, AND SO ON.

MOTHER FUCKERS TOOK WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A
STRAIGHT FORWARD MEDICAL SCIENCE ISSUE AND MADE
IT POLITICAL. THEY MADE PEOPLE GET SICK AND OR DIE
FOR SOME KIND OF POWER PLAY.

VOTE THEM OUT.
