This is an anti Canada, anti vaccination broadcast, contemptuous and sneering. I was disappointed.

Why can't you guys get anyone on your team with even a slightly different view?

Just an Opinion...

The predictable straw-man arguments from National Review. Does anyone believe that these guys are not all vaccinated? No one said that the vaccinated have reason to be afraid of the unvaccinated, Biden made it clear---again---that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, unlike what these hacks and grifters are saying. It's absolute dishonest propaganda.

None of these people has to worry about being evicted. The complete lack of empathy for their fellow Americans that do have to worry about it is shocking and despicable. If we are not willing to apply the same standards of basic morality on ourselves that we apply to others then we have no right to talk. None!

Charlie is so full of crap when it comes to ranked choice voting... To make his argument that we should stick with what is simpler and doesn't use computers.... computers are used now without ranked choice and it is the incompetent people in the board of elections that is messing up.

You guys are either buying it or selling it. You're not anymore interested in the truth than the NYT or CNN. Over and out.

Trump incited this moment from his inception. His entire life has been built on lies, from his so called self-made millionaire to his business acumen. he is a disgrace to this country and all right media who allowed him to get away with these past 4 years is also complicit. Trump being Trump has always been the right's excuse for his inexcusable presidency.

Disappointed that when getting upset about politics in their sports they didn’t mention the militarization of the national anthem after 9/11. Oh wait it’s because they don’t mind politics in their sports. They just don’t like a certain kind of politics in their sports.

so why didn't Fauci advise against protesting if the danger was so clear and present? Trump could not say that and you know it. You guys failed here. Plenty of questions surround Fauci and the press including you haven't asked them. Maybe Fauci wasn't in the Wuhan lab hardy har but I heard he was part of the research and its funding.
