      Letters to the editor suggest all sorts of interesting measures to stop the virus. These may include holding people down and jabbing them with the vaccine, refusing medical treatment for the unvaxxed,,, I imagine there are a few letters in the file suggesting executions for refusing the vax.

      IMO and all that.

      Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

      I could understand some of this anger and mockery from anti anti-vax individuals or multitudes if: if all indications from months since about May weren’t that the vaxes don’t prevent infection and transmission.
      Maybe stated more clearly: These vax-like things allow the people who have them, in their systems, to get infected with Covid and to be contagious anyway, and thus to be a danger to those around them. And these are the people, the angry stirred-up ones of them, who act like they believe that unvaxed people are the threat to them and are what’s preventing return to “normalcy.” With encouragement from J’Biden and executive leaders at hospitals, corpo’s, etc…..Much like Trumpism, some types of exploitation of masses involve spinning a belief that things could be OK if only it wasn’t for Those People.

        But not perfectly. And therein lies the problem. People who got vaxxed thnk they can do whatever they want without regard to masks, distancing, super spreader gatherings, etc. I don’t know why they’re sohigh & mighty. OK, I do know. Human nature. But they need to get a grip.

          Many didn’t stop when they could, this includes my wife and myself.   I do know several, including many relatives, that are unvaccinated that don’t wear masks, never wanted to even in the worst of times, but now will be happy to tell you that they have been vaccinated if asked.  As soon as the CDC said that vaccinated people didn’t need to wear masks they knew they had a free pass to go maskless.  Two, both around twenty, even had very mild cases of Covid.  Most of the blame for this falls on the individuals but I blame some of it on Fauci and the CDC, they have sent too many mixed and inaccurate messages.

      I suspect that letters from anti-vaxers would not be published.

        Some times newspapers do publish some loonie toon Letters to the Editor to show how out of touch, up the wall, and/or how far from reality some people really are.

        We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

      about the Bill of Rights and why those rights matter?
