  1. Government intrusion into taxpayers private lives is illegal and unconstitutional. This is a very dangerous slippery slope. When & where does it end?

  2. All the billionaires are NOT vaccinated. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mike Bloomberg, Jeff Zuckerberg, Donald Trump, etc… They all know the inside story of the dangers of vaccines. These elitists always lecture the poor miserable contaminated peasants that THEY must get vaccinated. But they themselves, never!

    LET THEM CRACK DOWN ON BILLIONAIRES FIRST! We will not be led like sheep to the slaughter. As long as they’re exempt WE’RE exempt!

    • seeing as all those people are old enough to be before all this antivax hullabaloo. they all are probably vaccinated. just as you are probably vaccinated. do you suffer from autism?
