    These tricksters, politians, trump, cuomo, bill gates, know what time it is!! Only the sleep, will line up for this vaccinne! There has never been a cure for cancer and they have a vaccine for covid, ha. That’s because they are out of tune with themselves, unnatural beings. The awakened ones know this is a PLANdemic! Stop watch tv, media and their made up numbers.

  12. laurie roth Reply

    when you have to say one more disgruntled employee every other week it seems like there just might be a problem with the employer not the employees

    • annoyed aussie Reply

      You are the employer, they are public servants. Maybe not you personally but the American people chose the top public servant directly. You can choose him again or another if you want in a few weeks.

    • laurie roth Reply

      ​@annoyed aussie yes yes …how ever since tRump is the current head of the government he is the one employer who is responsible and he is the problem ……he will be gone soon ….i was being a bit sarcastic

    • annoyed aussie Reply

      @laurie roth if you look at the betting market on the matter there is no clear favorite. I think the result could come down to turnout. I am not American but one thing I hope for you is preferably a clear result that everyone accepts and given Trumps rhetoric a close result could cause problems.

    Been waiting since june for the state of Delaware to act on my unemployment claim. Repeated calls to the Wilmington office for the Department of Labor’s UI division seem to lead me to believe no one is there to even answer the phones any more. Have been homeless for longer then I care to remember. But back to work and living in my car. Guess that makes me the Working Homeless.

    I had the same incident happen with my Kia Sorento.. My son(8yrs old at the time) got tangled in the back seat belt, it was around his neck.The more he moved the tighter it got. His lips turned blue and eyes became fixated..I pulled over, cut the seatbelt with a knife, I had in the SUV.. He started coughing and grasping for air..Im a nurse and at that very moment he was my pt but as soon as he started coughing and color came back, I became mom again..I was flooded with so many emotions.. He is now 12 but I/we will never forget this.. He is the reason I leave my medical bag in the car..

    160,000 deaths from covid and after research they say that only 6% of them deaths was only from the virus. That’s less then 12,000 death in the whole country. More people die from the common flue. I pray for you people. They are leading you people into the slaughter like sheep. Sheep!

    I don’t understand why the Press asks Donald Trump science questions. Why not just ask the scientists? You know he doesn’t know the answers and the only spreads disinformation when you put in microphone in front of his lie hole.
