  1. I godda have an ID to get a covid-19 shot. I godda have a covid-19 card to buy a Hemberger or, cup of coffee in New York? However it's against the law to require an ID to vote? This is the STUPIDEST law I've EVER heard of! My family and I, Have the vaccine. However, I'm gonna spend my vacation dollars in Florida this year! I hope New York businesses survive Covid-19.. Good Luck New York! My kids will miss you..

  2. If you force me I will retaliate and not in a good way. It will be subtle & methodical, but make no mistake about it. The Company will rue the day.

  3. Big pharma owns our government. 1776 will commence again if they try to prevent me from buying food for my family.

  4. Yes get a vaccine that doesn’t actually stop covid or the new strain but only makes the symptoms easier to handle….aka useless, you’re better off getting sick so you can build an immunity. This virus isn’t as lethal as the government acts like it is

  5. I see the city doing just fine. We happy. No one, not even store owners are even worried about masks anymore. We fine. We don’t need the vaccine.

  6. With the NYC Mandates, how is it going to effect people who WORK in the city but live in another state (example: New Jersey or Connecticut)? I just got my first dose of the Pfizer last week in NJ

  7. I remember this scene from all the nazi movies I’ve seen . You know the one with the SS saying “Zeig mir deine Papiere”. Yup, same.

  8. The constitution doesn't allow this and any person in authority that goes against this has waged war on the constitution and has lost ALL their authority. This is very clear in the constitution section 98

  9. Just so you know demonrats this is your fault. Conservatives told you this was going to happen but you wouldn't listen. The left never stops when they get on a roll.

  10. Good job dividing us just go back to the way it was where blacks couldn't go into whites only just put a sign that says vaccination only discriminate might as well

  11. IT'S TIME TO PROTEST THIS!!!! JUST LIKE GERMANY,  AUSTRALIA,  FRANCE,  EUROPE,  ITALY, U.K !!! THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR NO MANDATE VACCINES AND NO GREEN PASSPORTS!!

  12. Next step: the app will control payments. No vax, no payment- in or out.

    But what happens if your phone battery dies ? Enter Mark on your right hand! 666 offline mark for your CONVENIENCE. At that time, in a few years, people will be beheaded. We will get there through the media creating a sense of DISGUST against the unvaxxed, just like Hitler did with the Jews. Blaming the unvaxxed for the damage being done by medication and vaccines OVER TIME.

    If the vaccine worked, it would work- but it doesn’t.

  13. If they cared as much about our sovereignty as they do in forcing you to get the vaccine, we would by far be the best and most powerful country on earth!

  14. How about sending a copy of The Tatum Report entitled “I can’t believe I just saw that” to every major news outlet – hmmmmm

    Somebody apparently thinks mainstream America is STUPID

    Just the simple perspective of an American who happens to be black

  15. Wow I remember when Biden and kamala said ON camera “they would never get the vaccine” Go look it up……now it’s FORCED upon you…. When will you wake up?!

  16. This is when people need to start stepping tf up before its to late!!! All our rights gonna be taken away*
