Well it’s 2022, and yet again it’s back to square one….again. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t we just go through a huge Covid surge this time last year? Or am I stuck in and endless time-loop a la Groundhog’s Day. Omicron (I call it ‘oh my gawd’), a cousin of Covid 19, is raging! New cases are up, hospitalizations on the increase, but thankfully deaths aren’t as high. Maybe this new Covid guy is havin’ a little mercy on us, and trying to teach us a lesson: Don’t Be A Frickin’ Idiot…Get Vaccinated!
I’m really Pissed! I was feelin’ fairly good this past summer and fall; the Covid numbers were headed in the right direction. Me and The Wife were fully vaccinated, with booster. Life was getting back to normal. We were enjoying indoor dinners with our vaccinated friends, able to travel a bit, not have to wear your mask all the time, and generally live with a whole lot less fear. That was sure short-lived.
Not that I’m a profit… prophet or anything but didn’t ya sorta see this thing coming?” I could see it in myself – I was ready to ditch the mask, go in stores when I wanted, maybe go back to the gym. I was totally done with the pandemic. I think a lot of people felt that way too. Sadly, a lot of folks are against life-saving vaccines, and refuse to get vaccinated. Well that’s there Right, I don’t especially enjoy people telling me what I should do [Guess that’s why I was a Probation Officer for 30 years.] So we’ll never reach “Herd Immunity” and Covid will become the new normal (we’re doomed!). What blows my mind about Anti-Vaxxers is the different paradigm, mind set or worldview they operate under that motivates their distrust of vaccines and their use as it means them personally. I can see that too. But ya know? Doesn’t seem like your beliefs are working very well for ya. The UnVaccinated are droppin’ like flies, and in reality prolonging the pandemic. Maybe it’s time to take a fresh look at all this partisan shit. Take a good look at what ya believe; what has it brought me. And question whether it’s still workin’ for ya or not.
