The true pandemic is stupidity. All this winning... Rewards offred by GOP: A casket A plot An urn Booby prizes: Long covid A tube of half used ivermectin (the previous dude went to er, not sure when he'll be back but it yours now) They also lag far behind in schooling, integrity, maturity and judgment.
The counties that voted Democrat have the highest crime rates and homelessness in the nation. Will their property be lower due to the fact those areas are hazardous to live in? Divisive, political, unnecessary partisanship. Stop acting like fascists. The virus is never going away, turning the world into a prison, is insane. Stop trying to make everyone hate each other.
I am an Open-Minded person and even under the circumstance, ( Killing Virus ) I can roll with their Right to choose, But they Should realize they DON'T Have the RIGHT to go out amoung People Unvaccinated and Potentially pass a Varient off to them. And think that is Right? 1/2 Divide and conquer. Divide. Divide. Divide. When will people start standing up to this bs?
Amusing, if there is truly a connection between those counties and Trump. Surely they are all aware that Trump and wife were both vaccinated. So if counties still lag in vaccinations, perhaps it has nothing to do with Trump or they are refusing to follow Trump's example. that tells the IQ of his supporters.

Also, those not vaccinated are minorities that were told by KamalaHarris not to trust the vaccine. No surprise. And they know Trump is vaccinated.
