Once again, the media is pushing fear with the drowning coverage of the latest covid omicron variant. Every news station is excessively covering it every news cycle. What is weird to me is that they waited until after Thanksgiving weekend when most of the great travel and spending had been completed to suddenly have this breaking news. Had they announced the information a day or two sooner it would have impacted businesses and other entities. A side impact of this new variant is the realization that even if the USA or another country was 100% vaccinated the risk of covid mutations doesn’t go away completely. Essentially, if other parts of the world aren’t vaccinated the virus can keep spreading. The fact gives folks less reason to get vaccinated. If we can’t get our own citizens to get vaccinated how the heck, we going to influence other countries?
Closing my three-part series on rants against covid-19 topics. So again, zero problems with folks choosing not to put a syringe into their arms against their will. However, when people say they are waiting on the data to get vaccinated how many of them know what they are waiting for? Is vaccination data like porn, you know it when you see it? I watch these clueless folks they interview on the news that they ask about not being vaccinated and everyone gives the same generic answer. I need the data; I’m looking at the data. How many of these folks read labels on anything they ingest medicine, drink, or eat? No, checking the carbs, sugar, and general vitamins doesn’t count. If they read a label, are they actually researching ingredients they can’t pronounce? Do they have any idea how many things on the store shelves aren’t FDA approved that they take without blinking? By the way, the vaccine is now FDA improved for some. In short, what I’m saying is if you are waiting on data to get vaccinated, you better be able to intelligently explain what it is you need to feel comfortable. Otherwise, you’re just a fool repeating what the media and everyone else is saying.
