    Did the government do fraud with our vaccine where is it

  2. So, not only are you not doing your own fact checking as apparently that has been outsourced by a company whose very name has “fact check” in it; but also you are telling people who disagree to take it up with whoever wrote the drivel instead of addressing yourself. Not much of a fact checker. In fact to a large degree this kind of parroting is to blame for the shameful situation that the American electorate finds itself in now. Way to go MBFC!

  3. I’m going to guess that Jeff does not understand what ‘curated’ means.
