    1. The odds of dying from Russian Roulette are much higher than from the Covid vaccine, especially for kids. And the odds of dying from Covid itself or for long-term disabilities are also much higher.
      .
      As I said below, people keep arguing that automobile crashes skill more kids that Covid. But when you look hard at the numbers, kids who die in auto crashes are almost all not properly restrained, which is similar to not being vaccinated against Covid. So if you buckle up your kids, you should also be getting them vaccinated, or you’re being just as negligent as a parent.

      1. Last I looked only 20 school age kids have died from COVID in Colorado since the beginning of the pandemic. Then you always mention MISC which has 20 cases nation wide.
        More kids committed suicide last year then died from COVID in Colorado by a huge factor. Can we address this issue?
        From the CDC. 99% of kids will have little to no symptoms from covid. Yet why are we wanting to give them all the shot? Not necessary.

  1. FDA Approved ‘First Oral Blood Thinning Medication For Children’ Ahead Of Vaccine Rollout For Ages 5-11

    Really….? Now why would they do that right before they start pushing for people to put this garbage in their babies if it is completely fine and there is no danger? What is sad is that people will run out to be the first in line for their baby to get it.

  2. Children possible side effects not limited to but are:

    Pericarditis is swelling and irritation of the thin, saclike tissue surrounding your heart.
    Blood clots.
    Death.
    Remember these vaccines are experimental and have not been rigorously tested for safety and long-term side effects are unknown.

    1. On the other hand, Covid has known side effects, such as long term disabilities and death. Yes, even for young children.

      1. Needless deaths due to denied treatment. This is the world’s “Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis” moment.

          1. And hospitals and healthcare companies firing the workers that went through the last 2 years as a essential worker but didn’t want the jab somehow didn’t impact the facilities ability to adequately handle the number of hospital patients.
            You still do not see the big picture RC.

          2. RC, You know I am sure that some politician out there needs a hype man, you should tryout. You would be perfect, you have the ability for baseless political spin, as you continue to show by continuing to tow the party line. It would be great as they never deal in facts, and neither do you. You can respond with the same misdirection replies that you do now. You have the same tenacity as most of the politicians have shown over the last 5 years, its just too bad you keep repeating the same rhetoric, with no facts. Sadly, most people on here listen to you just about as much as they do the politicians, which as we can see isn’t very much. But keep doing you, perhaps one day you will see the errs in your decisions and statements.

          3. And you can prove this how? By their numbers? Hospitals are all about the money Check so skewing the numbers is no big deal…been done since the beginning. Just like killing people with remedesvir…like that didn’t happen. Check the NIH website and see the letter from Faucci sent to all hospitals who said this was the only antibiotic to be used for COVID patients. IT KILLED PEOPLE! Renal failure…liver failure…respiratory failure and you don’t think the numbers are skewed? There is no correct viable number created for this so called virus that can be trusted!
