    Listen to things that only sounds good but was told by people with zero medical experience. This is the results of those who graduated from Cindy, Kishma, Sam and heritage universities….. We deserve whatever we got! Hope Hon. Malone is home relaxing eating his popcorn; go blame smurf

      I was told by common sense. If I don't see it it doesn't exist. Where did you see people dying all over the place from a deadly common cold. Your so dumb for calling the chose ones dumb. Go look up agenda 21 and agenda 2030 and then you can speak to me. If your smart you would read your Bible in revelations when it say all nations will be deceived by pharmaceutical. It also says the riches will lead you to your death. All who took the mark will burn in brimstones

    I Thank You God for always watching over us as a people; for Your Abundant Love and Mercy.. please let us NEVER forget God’s Goodness towards us to say Thank You Lord for it is because of Him. Also for us with His Help to walk in obedience before Him. “Righteousness exalts a Nation, but sin is a reproach to its people”.

    Seriously tired of wearing masks although people are not wearing them now even on flights. But still can't take risks. And thanks to covid our work has also come down, especially the writing industry I myself also a writer and now these days clients only demand affordable article writing for their website. We writers cant even maintain our living standards because of the low money offered. Can't blame clients, they are also suffering from this. Hope the businesses start flourishing again and our economy gets stabilized just like it used to do.
