Problem is this was politicized way too much. There is no such thing as "herd immunity" Fauci took the real term "immunity" and added "herd" to it. I got vaccinated but I won't get any more shots or boosters. They are not needed. Wear a mask indoors. Wash and sanitize ...Jump to post

The biggest deterrent to more vaccinations is there presently is NO incentive to be vaccinated. You get vaccinated, a nice CDC form signed saying you’re vaccinated on xx date.

The latest article only ties Gaetz to 18 years old and only Greenberg to a 17 year old.

With the appeal process automatically put in effect for death penalty convictions an Innocent person being to death these days will never happen.
4) Alleged extortion doesn’t clear you of sex trafficking across state lines. And trust me, there’s a huge gulf (legally) between 17 and 18. Just sayin. Day before her 18 birthday, jail.
