    Lockdown is the phrase the prison guards use in prison to demand prisoners' go and stay in their cell for an undetermined amount of time. Seems the same outside of prison and the governments are putting the entire world in prison. except for the rulers and elites.

      We won't go into lockdown again. The American people won't allow it. There could be a million cases a day, and we won't go into lockdown. 72% of adults have at least one dose of vaccine, once that number reaches 80% I would hope that there's some herd immunity.

    Yeah, they're going to try to make it very difficult for people who are not vaccinated... I'm still not getting it! What about natural immunity? What about already having the antibodies? What about strengthening your immune system by eating the right things for a change, intermittent fasting, etc... What about not wanting to get the damn vaccine because you don't want it?! It seems like there is a major plot to take control to a different level and everybody pushing this vaccine is apart of it...

I have no sympathy for the man but the problem with this guy is not that he lives with his mom, it's that he took part in an attempted coup. All you are doing is alienating vulnerable targets for neonazi movements even more. Shame on you.

    GOSH! Here is what we know so far about the Globalists instrument the UN agenda 21 now in its final stages of the Planed-demic. The COVID 19 Virus from Wuhan CHINA 20 months ago, it’s worth noting the WHO Chairman “Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus” was elected to his position in 2017, and was responsible for the changes made to more easily identify a Pandemic. Remember 20 months ago he was responsible for delaying the news of the COVID 19 release of COVID 19 from Wuhan CHINA from the World for 2 months? Since then the Governments and Mainstream Globalist Media scare tactics are pushing the global population to be injected? The end game of the UN agenda 21 since being adopted by 178 countries 29 years ago, UN agenda 21 calls for massive global human population reduction with this, what shall I call it? Non-specific vaccine that the owners of the vaccine copyright, have been indemnified against any prosecution from grieving humans??? Because this new vaccine will always need booster injections! humans will get used to being injected annually

But I'm still a prisoner in my own home. I'm at high risk for a bad outcome if I contract Covid. People are so stupid and selfish walking around without masks, risking the lives of the vulnerable both vaccinated and non. I'd love to have a chuckle about it, but too sad. 😷🌈🕊️
