Elvis vaccinated

New York City Commissioner of Health Leona Baumgartner, right, holds the arm of Elvis Presley as Assistant Commissioner Harold Fuerst administers the polio vaccine backstage at CBS Studio 50 before a 1956 airing of “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Publicity of Elvis’ being inoculated convinced millions of young people to get the polio vaccine.

There is a line in the iconic farce “Airplane!” in which a commentator discussing the flight’s expected doom says, “They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into. I say, let ’em crash.”

It’s tempting to take the same stance against those who believe the COVID-19 vaccines contain microchips, were insufficiently tested, the virus has killed tens of thousands of people or other mythology on which anti-vaxxers base their defiance of science. Whether foolishly or not, however, we believe the better approach is to find a method to convince them that receiving a vaccine can save lives — both their own and those of others.

Of course Morris left out that Biden, Harris and dems ,while Trump was pushing the vaccine ,said they wouldn’t take it. Thank you Mr Morris for your fair reporting

Trump did get the vaccine done through warp speed. I know it’s difficult for you to admit. Heck you even printed dem narratives making fun of his prediction which came true

natives5

I thought I corrected you yesterday about what VP Harris actually said yet you keep trying to spin it for your narrative. How come trump turned on the vaccine when he lost the election?! Is he so fickle that it was about the glory and not the people?

PJBM626

Your correction was wrong

natives5

Facts don’t matter to you. She said she wouldn’t take the vaccine based on trumps word but rather science. You keep leaving out that part again to fit your false narrative. Remember trump was all over the place not even believing it was real. Let’s all drink bleach and use UV lights in our backsides. No response on why the vaccine went from trumps battle cry pre-election to post-election loss narrative of it’s a bad thing yet he’s vaccinated?!?

Bulldog

Why is there no concern for the millions of unvaccinated illegal aliens invading our country?

natives5

Because that’s a talking point and spin tactic by Fox to get you riled up.

Bulldog

Yeah sure. Nothing to see here. Move along.

natives5

We all wish you would move along little doggie.

Bulldog

Bopeep is looking for you

PJBM626

Bulldog. You know that’s not a dem narrative do the facts won’t report it

Father of Six

Exactly.

PJBM626

These countries have the AstraZeneca vaccine on hold

PJBM626

Sorry native. Fox wasn’t only one who reported that Biden, Harris laughed at the timeline and said they wouldn’t take it

https://news.yahoo.com/kamala-harris-says-she-wont-take-covid-vaccine-just-on-trumps-sayso-020511962.html

natives5

You realize your article backs up my point. Her words are there. She’s says if the Health professionals tell her to take it she will. Yes she said she wouldn’t take it based on tramps word alone and that wasn’t the end of her statement. Nice try though.

PJBM626

Bulldog you have a great point which the facts won’t cover 30% of illegals are refusing vaccines

https://news.yahoo.com/30-immigrants-ice-custody-refused-090032086.html

natives5

And how many Americans are refusing it? Are you upset with them also?

Father of Six

No, because as US citizens we have rights not afforded to illegal immigrants. You should know this.

natives5

I forgot that the virus really cares what nationality and political party you are…smh. I thought you cancelled your subscription twice already, Father of six lol.

Father of Six

I know you hate that we have rights not afforded non-citizens. Hang in there, if we go commie like you wish that will change. My bet is the dems are out of power in 2022 and 2024.

natives5

Haha….have a good day Father of Six.

natives5

Haha now I’m a communist. Sure lol. Maybe watch the Olympics with your family tonight and chill or is that a commie thing to do now?!

PJBM626

I’m upset because they shouldn’t he hear. They came to America illegally. They are brining drugs, criminality, Pervert offenders and arms where is the facts reporting on this. In Joe Biden sheep own. That’s where .Americans didn’t come here illegally

I have no issue with folks coming legally

I know being dems expose you the addiction of lawlessness and disregard of many laws

Father of Six

The Facts editorial board has no soul. Have you read Mr. Morris outrage over the 50,000 unborn Texans killed and aborted annually? Has the editorial board written asking you to look out for you fellow Texans and end abortion on demand? No, because it's unwritten. Does that 50,000 number look familiar? Get vaccinated but remember we don't have to choose between vaccines and freedom.

natives5

Deflect when you can’t prove a point.

Father of Six

The article is about people dying, placing blame and a possible prevention. You are smart enough to understand the connection right? I'll get the colors out for you.

natives5

You still deflected by not staying on the topic of people dying from refusing to take the vaccine. This has nothing to do with your rant about abortions. Maybe the crayons would have helped you see that.

Father of Six

Deflect like...You mean blaming an ex President with no power for everything? It's about people dying how do you not understand that? You act like you and Mr. Morris get to choose who's lives are valuable, but you don't.

natives5

Did you type that with a straight face? Lol This coming from a group of people who blamed Obama for everything from 2016-2020. Thanks for starting my day with laughter. Always a good start. Y’all have a good one!

PJBM626

Let’s keep in mind Biden redirected 650 million in COVID budgeted funds to house migrants pouring across his open border

Facts didn’t report this. Go figure

PJBM626

DFW reported an illegal crossing family released by border patrol because they had COVID .The La Joya health department released a warning . We know 30% of Illegals won’t take vaccine. We won’t get these stories from the facts. It will cast a negative in Joe Biden . So we don’t know how many illegals are on the streets carrying the virus. All the facts wants to do is blame Trump supporters

Can’t get news here

https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2021/07/28/la-joya-covid-migrants-whataburger/?fbclid=IwAR3PiVfLGHXPMOZ5IbsIFD-t3UHlfsP5ruQlH-LeZQEsWKsfl1siImjBx88 den and the facts will shield him

natives5

Nor do you know how many others who aren’t illegal are walking around spreading the virus yet your focus is on individuals who you believe entered illegally. Just curious, how can you tell someone is illegal?!? Surely not by looking at them or hearing them speak. That figure of 30% was pulled out of someone’s hat. Folks, y’all just witnessed fear mongering from PJBM.

PJBM626

Just like you believe the facts and dem media. This was reported by the Biden administration. So Native. You don’t trust Joe. I thought you believed everything dems say. Now you doubt

PJBM626

Native did you not read the link. Fear mongering?! Dude are you ok? This was from Yahoo news which is far left . Is the truth so hard to swallow. I get it, you didn’t hear from Morris or CNN whom both are dem propaganda

natives5

You are more moronic than I realized. Just because I support a party or a person doesn't mean they are the end all be all. I know that's a hard concept for you (and Father of Six) to grasp. I think for myself; I know, unusual for a sheep lol No, I don't believe that figure; I believe it is skewed based on my experiences with immigration over many years. Funny how you glossed over my question about how you can tell someone is illegal. The fear mongering is blaming illegal aliens (who tend to have a darker complexion) for spreading the virus while not addressing the larger number of Americans who are refusing the vaccine and/or mask wearing. You put a target on people of color when you spread that sort of ignorance, whether that is your intention or not. I would hope that is not your intention.

natives5

Your link was from DFV cbslocal news and posted onto the Yahoo site. I get far left articles, middle of the road, and far right articles on my Yahoo page so calling Yahoo far left is a stretch. Stop with the labeling already.

natives5

Again no outrage towards the Galveston judge who diverted Covid funds to the border wall?!? I believe that’s an example of the Republican fake outrage. Be outraged over the misuse of Covid funds by all not just those you feel are done by one party.

PJBM626

How much was that? That money was well spent. It prevented COVID. Joe took monies directed for COVID for housing of illegals due to failed border policies

natives5

Prevented covid...dude, are you okay?

PJBM626

Yes keep Illegals from crossing with COVID

Case in point: Texas Dem representative Henry Cuellar has asked Biden to halt disastrous border policy due to COVID spike from recent COVID situations with illegals

Of course we won’t see this story in the facts

https://www.foxnews.com/media/democratic-congressman-calls-on-biden-to-put-a-pause-on-border-crisis-as-covid-spikes-in-texas

natives5

Yet the legal citizens spreading covid are okay? Covid relief money moved by Republicans to non-covid related matters is okay with you also? Do you see the pattern?

PJBM626

Sorry to burst the vaccine glass house but 74%of vaccine outbreaks we’re vaccinated in a Massachusetts county. Hum this destroys your article

https://www.theepochtimes.com/74-percent-of-covid-19-cases-from-massachusetts-outbreak-occurred-in-fully-vaccinated-people-study_3926283.html

natives5

When you quote a pro-trump paper like Epoch Times, the only thing you destroy is your credibility, which has been lacking from the start. Almost sounds like you are pleased that people aren't getting vaccinated and are dying so you can blame, blame, blame . The irony is that you are always hooting and hollering about liberal dem media yet all you post is biased far right nonsense being promoted as media. Have a good day!
