Okay, they let us know that they are going to "review" any vaccine. My question is Oregon are we really getting the best care, the best treatments based on the latest information or are we all subject to political whim in the form of primitive care?

Look at how many new cases are in Multnomah County, and yet Kate, Chloe, Ted, Joann, Deb and the others just keep enabling the large groups of low hygiene losers to keep gathering and breaking laws in downtown Portland.

Then look what happens on the extremely rare occasions when a right wing group decides to exercise their first amendment rights. What a joke. Talk about selective prosecution.
