  1. The longer you MORONS wait to BREAK the REAL Story, (Dominion Computers) the WORSE YOU ARE GONNA LOOK TO THE PUBLIC, People will NEVER Believe you again, look at CNN being sold, IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU ALL ! !

  2. to see how corrupt the whole thing is Trump said the vaccine was close it should be here by the end of the year his team had the army medical teams ready to distribute it he sponsored a government private sector coalition that brought results but they were ignored by biased democratic media ,doctors , and politicians Trumps optimism was mocked by the "experts" now suddenly the vaccine is here people applaud , it got "voted" in with Biden . A Media that applauded Obama for getting a Nobel peace prize for doing nothing (being president while black) ignored Trumps Nobel nominations for doing things that actually merited it . Somehow during the george floyd incident the murders and drive bys and subsequent hostile interactions with police that have happened in cities that have been under democrat controlled cities for the last fifty years is some how trumps fault? if trump is responsible for covid deaths are the majors of Chicago and Obama responsible for the more preventable drive bys of black men that happened whiled they were there….. the only time anyone care about crime in Chicago was when it was a hate crime blamed on two imaginary white boys wearing trump hats by jess smollet , The Democrats are not the the party of Martin Luther King they are the party of Al Sharpton , i believe they cheated in this election because they know the media has there back ….rant over


  4. For anyone scrolling through the comments going through a really hard time I truly hope things get better for you no matter who you are. Please don't give up trying. There is a reason you are here reading this message, to remind you that YOU are so important to God and His Son Jesus Christ. I can only imagine what you are going through but God knows.
    I also know how difficult life can be and I may not understand your exact experience but I am truly sorry that things have been so tough for you. I care and want you to know that you are not alone, you have a purpose, you are worthy of so much. Please take it one day at a time, one step at a time.
    I am praying that God will send His angels to each and everyone of you to comfort you, surround you with His love, give you peace beyond measure, and to change things for the better.
    Please know that you are here for a reason and that sometimes we don't always know why we go through things, maybe to help someone else going through the same thing because you understand such pain that someone else may not.
    Please also know you also have a Savior Jesus Christ who died for you, He loves you more than you could ever know. Please ask Him for forgiveness of wrongs and ask Him into your heart believing with sincerity. ( Please see the book the Holy Bible for more information)
    He can guide you in all things. I speak from experience it doesn't matter what we have done or that we think we don't measure up He will meet us where we are, even in our lowest low. He can give you peace beyond measure, I speak from experience. I can only imagine how hard it has been for you but I truly hope the best is yet to come for all of you. Please never give up, because He won't give up on us. Please remember this when things are hard and you feel at the end of your rope.
    To give your life to Jesus Christ here is a sample prayer:
    Dear Lord Father in Heaven
    I admit I am a sinner. I have done many things that don't please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me.
    I believe that you died for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to you. From this day forward, help me to live every day for you in a way that pleases you. I love you Lord, and I thank you that I will spend eternity with you,
    In Jesus name I pray, amen

    Just praying for your sins to be forgiven, and saying the name of Jesus at the end of your prayer will not make your sins that are red as scarlet be white as snow. In this time of disaster and pandemic like COVID-19 Fathe God is calling you now to come before His Word, and be guided into all Truth through the Spirit of Truth, and truly wash away your sins.

  6. It's unfortunate that everyone else has to take up the slack for the people that refuse to do something so simple. WEAR A MASK.

  7. So, if you haven't figured it out yet, those of you that continue to defy wearing a mask, staying inside, and those of you that continue to go to gatherings, YOU ARE THE REASON WHY OUR ECONOMY IS NOT RECOVERING.  YOU ARE THE REASON WHY UNEMPLOYMENT CONTINUES TO RISE.  YOU ARE THE REASON WHY HEALTH CARE IS GOING TO BE EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE IN THE FUTURE. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY SMALL BUSINESSES CAN'T SURVIVE. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY PEOPLE CAN'T GET BACK TO WORK. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY TRAVELING HAS CAME TO A STOP. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY PEOPLE ARE DYING. YOU ARE THE REASON WHY HOSIPITALS ARE OVER WHELMED. You say the problem is you don’t want our government to control your life and tell you what you need to do.  Yet you won’t on your own do the responsible actions necessary to get this virus under control.  Our government should NOT HAVE to enforce actions to get ANYONE to corporate to save lives.  More than anything, why are you not listening to those nurses and doctors that are tired of working the long hours, those that have lost others in this profession while serving you?  They are dying as well, because those of you that seem to think the government is trying to control your liberties, when in fact they are simply trying to get the virus under control so you can go back to having a life again.  I guess if you have a dying wish to die from this virus, that's your decision, but do you have to take others with you? Seriously, are you proud of yourself for being so defiant?

  8. DO NOT FEED TROLLS. Often they can be relatively easy to spot: no avatar, simplistic names like Not Thinking or Tuesday Tim, few if any subscribers, inflammatory statements that contain no facts and recent YouTube join dates (check their channel’s about section). Sometimes they simply out themselves but if all else fails – listen to your gut.
    This is critically important to remember * To cause strife Trolls will take any combative position. They will sound like a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Progressive or even the neighborhood bully. DON’T GET SUCKED IN. * They exists to cause chaos and mayhem. * Ignore them. * No matter how tempting it may feel to react with a quip or kick – doing so only helps them. Ignoring them reduced their power – their ability to distract, disrupt, divide and upset our democracy is diminished. Oh, don't forget you can mute and/or report Trolls to YouTube. (See YouTube reporting guidelines.)
    T.H.I.N.K is the acronym children are taught to safely navigate cyber space but it applies to everyone. Ask yourself: T = Is it true? H = Is it helpful? I = Is it informative? N = Is it necessary? And the big one, K = Is it kind? These cyber security skills take practice but are well worth it when you stop yourself from falling into a troll’s trap. It is best to say simply good bye.
    Please share this post widely so we better manage our online activity. It will help prevent the spread of more COVID-19 misinformation. Limiting our time on social media is one of the best self-care steps we can take – even five minutes a day. Music and going for walks, breaks, help with stress, anxiety and depression management too. In fact, it may be the best first step in deprogramming Trump cultists, Qanon conspiracy theorists and doomsday religious zealots – remembering reality. Take care out there, stay safe and thank you.
