  1. Lol this could come out last year . Why vaccine ??? Stupid

  2. Now they want to shove pills down our throat. 40 pills will be needed to help save you at only a 50% success rate. Now doesn’t that sound totally ridiculous. Another genius idea that is substandard. If the FDA approves this they are worse than I thought.

  3. Too bad we didn't have a decades long tested and proven therapeutic drug before this. I mean, could you imagine if it was discovered that a know therapeutic was available the entire time, that is one tenth the cost as this new drug, but the government and main stream media purposely discredited and villainized any medical professionals that wanted to use it to save lives, but could not, and hundreds of thousands of people needlessly died. But, that's crazy. It's not like we had a couple of Therapeutics that had won Nobel Peace Prizes and been used safely for decades on an assortment of other diseases and ailments. If did, then that would be Crimes Against Humanity. Dare I say it, a violation of 18 US Code 2381-2385 perhaps.

  4. Still. Not. Talking the vaccine. I had covid twice. And I'm still a live

  5. Maybe this will fix the fear problem because the vaccine sure didn't work. I have lost numerous people who were fully vaccinated….take that to the bank. No unvaxxed friends yet.

  6. Covid|9 has the structure of HIV whereby vaccine try to deceive your immunity system to create T-Cell perish together with the virus just like overclocking immunity system temporarily but unable to deceive the new C19 variant.
    Covid-vaccine is a obstruction of covid virus to create new variant, it only able to hide the symptoms after get infected, at the same time to” enhance your immunity system to against the virus temporarily like Morphine-Sulfate

  7. oh my God USA got the best account manager Prof.Angelina Barris,making me and my Canadian friends rich in days ! I made a huge profit in my portfolio made over $14k in two weeks! With love from Canada 🇨🇦

  8. Covid19 is way worse then the 1918-1920 Spanish flu pandemic so the covid pills are gonna have to work

  9. It's no coincidence that the makers of Ivermectin have an expensive new drug targeting unvaccinated people.

  10. Great job dude I received my transfer without any problem I really appreciate your work I will hit you up soon for more business

    WTF: US parents protest about? A: 184 school shootings in 10 years B: Masks.

  12. "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the next best time is now" I consider this to be best motivational quote I've heard in a very long time. But motivational quotes are useless if you don't practice what you preach*

  13. I am just here to see the anti Government Anti Corporate Conservatives post who have no idea what they stand for other than being contraire just for the sake of it.

  14. Jesus. It says it in the name. You're gonna get murked (marked for death) if you take the "covid pill" Merck.
