  1. Shutdowns don’t work. Masks don’t work. Closing public places don’t work. Vaccinations work!
    Open up ALL of El Paso. Business get rid of the unproven wearing of masks to prevent COVID. That hasn’t worked. What works? Vaccines. Trump’s Warp Speed production and delivery of vaccines WORKS!
    Don’t give a damn if senile biden takes credit. Get the people to safety. We’ll deal with biden later.

  2. I’ve been to the gym everyday since this all started except for the month and a half they were mandated shutdown, only wore a mask the very minimum to get by in stores and biz, never wore one outside, split my time in Jrz and EP, been to all the holiday parties and family functions and never an issue for me. 87% of the USA hospitalizations for Covid have been overweight or obese.

    Staying open and opening up worked ie: Texas, Florida, South Dakota etc. New Mexico, NY, Cali did not work! So yea, destroying the economy was a HUGE error. Thanx Dems!
