I don't like living in a country we're people joke around about new varrents when clearly they don't care about us when they support the virus to continue it's disturbing to have people joke around about these new varrents in this new year coming in 2022 sometime I really want this to be done it's controlling our lives and no more varrents sorry. from moving on in life this whole virus and pandemic is preventing peoples life long term goals.
A Fauci, who has headed the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984, has played a major role in promoting and funding gain-of-function research, both in the US and China. Newsweek reported: “He argued that the research was worth the risk it entailed because it enables scientists to make preparations [ ] that could be useful if and when a pandemic occurred.”
Omicron ???. On Dec 20 United put over 2000 flight attendants and pilots including 331 pilots on unpaid leave or fire due to mandated covid-19 vaccine….similar to Delta.. that is one main reason to cancel flights… to be true..

This country hasn’t seen half the disaster this Delaware hillbilly can produce.
Worker vaccine mandate😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Let's go Brandon

"Let's FIRE a quarter of our workers for not following our vax orders and then complain that Omicron is the problem! Yeah, THAT'S the ticke!" – Stupid airlines

The USA, where you used to be able to own people but now suddenly wearing a mask is having your freedom taken away. H.Franklin
US parents protest at school meetings about? A: 185 school shootings in 10 years B: Masks.
Social media and mainstream broadcasts showing American pandemic mismanagement is BORING. Land of the free my butt.
The news SHOULD BE New Zealanders have ONLY 50 deaths NOT Americans having a WHOPPING 838,234 !
You guys knew this was gonna happen, the cancellations…………….you folks know flying will never be the same anymore……………you choose to fly you choose the high likelihood of delays
We won’t fly again. Nor will we ever going on a cruise. We will drive to the coast for vacations from here on out.
Okay, a bit of common sense here: Staff shortages began when they canned anyone that wouldn't take the magic potion. Now those that took it are out sick and they are cancelling flights. Logic anyone? Turn off the television "programming". They feed lies for breakfast and people eat this stuff up all day long.
Who didn't see this coming? Holidays are a horrible time to travel even before the pandemic.

Cancellations are due to mandates and shortage of employees. Not Omicron. Bidens America
More COVID deaths under Dementia Joe than President Trump.
Airlines are flying illegals around inside the country. No planes for U.S. citizens.
Do interstate bus companies based in Mexico have to abide by vaccination & mask mandates for their passengers?
I might book a trip with one of them should I need to travel cross country.
The future will be fine.
People would rather collect unemployment
The ten people we know with COVID are all vaccinated. Breaks right through it. Symptoms are milder but there has been one terrible new symptom they're all suffering. It decreased the number of condescending words they speak.
