  • Mr. Rameriz, what do you know of those who have refused to take the vaccine? Obviously, nothing. History is littered with medicines, that the government encouraged, that ended up being disastrous. It i s not necessarily the medicine itself, sometimes it is the “carrier” that delivers the medicine. You call us “stupid”, oh not in so many words but that IS what the cartoon does. I am disappointed by your ideas. I have not had a shot and don’t know if the future holds, maybe I will. I am healthy and have been cautious with myself an for others, I certainly don’t want to give the virus to anyone. I have been tested and I am NOT a carrier. I believe I have had the virus but it has been over a year so therefore cannot prove one way or the other. I believe this virus/flu has be blown completely out of proportion, don’t know way but I have a few ideas – will keep them to myself. I wish I could believe past data on other flues, there were many deaths because of them, but I just do not trust the CDC data and my memory is fuzzy. I do know that H1N1 and swine flu were devastating, we just never had any news about them -why not?
    This is getting too long – I am so disappointed.

    • Why does pharma need to experiment on the entire world’s population? That is purely insane. Count me out…I refuse to be a lab rat to satisfy the cravings of some megalomaniacs who have no regard for others. You can call anyone who refuses the gene altering therapies wise, responsible, self motivated and attuned to Big Pharma’s BS machine.
