At some point, it will be an inescapable fact: the vaxxxes cause the variants.

This is happening all over the planet: the vaxxxed are both spreading and catching the virus.

Only idiots think you can vaxxx out of this pandemic, and idiots are everywhere.

Many doctors and scientists warned the world this would happen 18 months ago…

One day my PureBlood will be a valuable commodity.
