Next time you eat a burger or have an urge to, just think about it, think about that choice. Heart disease kills more people than any virus going around. Next time someone offers you some little debbie make sure you think about that choice because diabetes kills more people than any virus out there.

So the NFL is gonna fine unvaccinated players if they get Covid, Are they gonna fine the vaccinated players of they get Covid, They can't treat those 2 groups differently, That is discrimination! The NFL has worded it that the penalties will only apply to the unvaccinated, But that is not legal. You can't treat the black players Differently from the white players! I don't think they have totally thought this out!

If all the NFL players that were against vaccines said we're not playing you would probably not see a season this year
