Your argument has a major flaw. You claim vaccines are a fraud, yet there are literally mountains of evidence that prove you wrong.

You are correct that the can'ts are a threat, but the more we can limit the number of vaccinated the stronger herd immunity becomes. The won'ts hurt this through a conscious decision, their only reason is they don't want to. Their selfishness puts more people at risk.
If you cannot understand why we forgive the ones who cannot be vaccinated and blame the ones who choose not to then you are probably the same kind of selfish ass who would choose not to.

"An individual may give a maximum of: $2,700 per election to a Federal candidate or the candidate's campaign committee.2 Notice that the limit applies separately to each election. Primaries, runoffs and general elections are considered separate elections. $5,000 per calendar year to a PAC."

Please explain how an individual can give such a large sum to a campaign and not violate the law?

Ok had to click through to the actual NYT article, it is split between a number of pacs and the campaign. So I guess I am to believe Trump won't be beholden to his few high ticket donors?

Most of the time it is not though, As the smart tv firmware's are rarely if ever updated. So eventually their apps stop working. Now maybe since yours uses the Roku it will keep getting updates, but I know from experience that you get what apps your device came with and if the provider makes a change your app stops working.

Current laws are not a problem, No one is going to be up in arms over HR 821 with Amendment 23 that allows for the use of DNA testing for employment in the financial sector.

A few years later it will be quietly expanded to other sectors until, like your social security number, it becomes a de facto requirement.
