  1. And so the “mass vaccination strategy” did what? Killed and maimed millions worldwide but other than that…did what?

    • @Scott
      It made billionaires of dollars for big pharma executives and Blackrock investors (may they rot in hell)

  2. Happy to know the cabinet is finally coming to their senses. However, I still think they need to go further with item 4 and 5 and just open the place. We just hosted carnival and the videos speak for themselves (no mask and 1 inch apart) and you still talking about wearing mask and social distancing in office. Who really goes to bars and night club and wear mask?

    We just need to make mask wearing a personal choice, it is that SIMPLE.

  3. MESSAGE TO THE UNVACCINATED:

    “Even if I were pollinated and fully vaccinated, I would admire the unvaccinated for withstanding the greatest pressure I have ever seen, even from partners, parents, children, friends, colleagues and doctors.

    People who were capable of such personality, courage and critical ability are undoubtedly the best of humanity. They are everywhere, in all ages, levels of education, states and ideas. They are of a special kind; they are the soldiers that every army of light wants to have in its ranks. They are the parents that every child wants to have and the children that every parent dreams of having. They are beings above the average of their societies, they are the essence of the people who have built all cultures and conquered horizons. They are there, next to you, they look normal, but they are superheroes.

    They did what others could not, they were the tree that withstood the hurricane of insults, discrimination and social exclusion. And they did it because they thought they were alone, and believed they were the only ones.

    Banned from their families’ tables at Christmas, they never saw anything so cruel. They lost their jobs, let their careers sink, had no more money … but they didn’t care. They suffered immeasurable discrimination, denunciation, betrayal and humiliation … but they kept going.

    Never before in humanity has there been such a “casting”, now we know who are the best on planet Earth. Women, men, old, young, rich, poor, of all races or religions, the unvaccinated, the chosen of the invisible ark, the only ones who managed to resist when everything collapsed.

    That’s you, you passed an unimaginable test that many of the toughest Marines, Commandos, Green Berets, astronauts and geniuses could not withstand.

    You are made of the stuff of the greatest who ever lived, those heroes born among ordinary men who glow in the dark.”

    Author unknown

    • @ Angel, I concur with this unknown author. I read this somewhere, but I can’t remember where, but I was moved by every single word.

      All I do know, that I was emboldened and encouraged to continue to fight the good fight.

      And also remember around 2 years ago, there was only a handful of us (if that!) who informed Antiguans what was really going on with this PLANDEMIC … and we stood our ground.

      I dedicate the unknown author’s message to people like you and Sugarapple. Steadfast people.
