    You're entitled to feel that way. I guess I'm looking at it differently. Even if it was mandated, I don't see what it would hurt. I felt the same way about mask wearing....what does it hurt?

    Truck drivers are just as much sheep as any other sheep. 90 percent of truckers think pretty much the same........you didn't get away from the sheep. You only migrated to a new flock of sheep. Truckers, like most everyone else, just get behind a line of thinking that mirrors their own.

    Let's see. The single study done on non medical masks shows one is more likely to get sick wearing one than not wearing a mask.
    So yes, it does hurt to wear one.

    Can you show where it was fully approved by the FDA? Or just that it was given the go ahead under the emergency use authorization? They are totally different ya know. They skipped ENTIRE sections of the normal vaccine testing methods like testing them in mice, etc.

    Tell that to the people who have died from the vaccine. They would say it would hurt, bigly.

    Same with wearing a mask. Many people have medical reasons why they can't wear one. So for them, it would hurt, bigly.

    If any of the vaccines actually get approved by the FDA I’ll entertain the idea of getting one more.

    Everyone this is why we all need to chill. This guy is about as cool a poster as we are gonna find on the forum, don’t need to attack cause he got a vaccine! Lol my position personally is it should be a choice. I get the arguments for both sides. If I don’t get it, I’m not participating etc., I just don’t trust the government. Has nothing to do with being conservative or liberal or Democrat or Republican I don’t trust any of them. They’ve been lying to us throughout all of this so what’s to say they’re not lying about this vaccine? I’ll tell you this much. If there was some kind of hidden or major problem with this vaccine that maybe makes people sick years down the road, I can guarantee you they’re not gonna tell us.. I’m waiting. If it’s all good in a few years? Maybe I’ll get one then.

    As for masks, same thing. It is true that it is unhealthy to wear a mask because you’re breathing in bacterial air and a higher level of carbon monoxide and this definitely can do damage to your lungs long-term. Plus there’s so much debate whether it helps keep the virus out or not.

    Regardless we don’t need to hate on each other cause we agree or disagree. Lol
