Happy Monday, another week begins. I received my second COVID vaccination last Friday, thanks to an amazing effort by the new administration. I don’t even want to speculate on where things would be if the Idiot’s Inch Erection, Oops, I mean Idiot’s Insurrection, had succeeded. Then the effort to vaccinate the country (as well as the entire globe) could be measured in years instead of months.
I was quite impressed by the well-organized administration of the vaccine. It’s a colossal task that from my experience, is being carried out remarkably well. It’s my hope this effort will be an example to prove that good government CAN accomplish necessary goals. Perhaps we can hope for a new, more active stretch of government advancements in citizen’s rights and infrastructure. . I’m not encouraged to see that Republicans are still pushing their pack of big lies and attempting to, basically, keep the country in a state of instability. They don’t seem to have a strategy other than stopping any significant progress in the USA. And they’ve done a pretty competent job at propagandizing their base. The optimistic hope is in the fact that most former sane and honest Republicans are now supporters of the new administration. We still have the crazies to deal with.
I spoke to 2 people I know this week who always seemed sensible, who both told me no way am I getting that vaccination! I replied that even if you’re not nervous about becoming ill yourself, shouldn’t you do it to protect the overall population? One told me they never get any vaccinations, including flu shots. Okay, I admit to never having a flu shot. But I had the flu probably 8 or 9 times as a child and never again since. It’s a little different situation. Try to convince skeptics using the example of smallpox and you’ll probably get blank stares. I mean make up your mind. I was under the impression their Feckless Leader was all for herd immunity. I guess they’re just for herd mentality!
