It’s Halloween time, so lets make with a monster movie!
I was going to point out the real monsters were those with influence, almost all of whom are vaccinated (often by their company's mandate), telling others to take a stand against a safe and effective method of promoting public health and safety for the greatest number of people (used since the 1800’s, and how our society gets rid of diseases, including viruses) for their own gain.
I could also point out that requiring vaccines is much closer to having traffic laws than any kind of rights infringement. I've had (some relatively new, at the time) vaccines mandated at my job just to VISIT cardiac cath labs, never mind work in healthcare. And those were to protect others, not myself, like the masks doctors wear are. Kind of like how they recommend flu shots for those in contact with people more at risk from the illness. (Recommend vs require, because the flu is much less deadly than Covid.)
But, It was our 20th anniversary earlier this week, and I'm taking off tomorrow...
Because I can't read a calendar.
I love you Rosa.
Therefore, I’d rather have fun instead of getting myself angry again.
But before the fun: Get vaccinated, and wear a mask inside in crowds. It's not all about you, its about everyone working together to reduce the statistical likelihood of those who can't fight it on their own getting it. Just because some rules / behaviors don't make sense, it doesn't invalidate the statistical reduction of the methods. "Being brave and free" by refusing vaccines and masks is the same as "being brave and free" by running all the red lights. There's a reasonable chance you'll be OK, but the statistical likelihood of you, or more importantly someone else, ending up hospitalized or dead is much greater.
Anyway- Back to fun!
