A Clarification

In reference to The Sentinel article “Protests lead to shutdown of vaccine clinic,” Jan. 26, 2022; I would like to clarify that I am not the person who attended the council meeting in opposition of the clinic, and my business (Fit4You Training Studio) is not associated with the opinions expressed or actions taken by someone with a similar name.

I appreciate the opportunity to clarify.

Pressure and Propaganda

When it comes to the vaccine protestors, how hypocritical of Richard Meyers to make a statement about infringement of rights via intimidation, oppression and inhibition. This has been the precise complaint coming from those being constantly pressured and propagandized by their employers and the government to get a vaccine they don’t want.

All of a sudden, when it suits his agenda, he starts ranting about individual rights and freedoms. 

He feels a lot different about those same rights and freedoms when it comes to his apparent calling to push vaccines.

And Councilor Mike Fleck: Who got their right to be vaccinated taken away? None of the information you read supported the notion that these vaccines are harmful? Keep reading what you’re being fed, I guess.
