      Those who are vaxxed are getting frustrated with those who are not. The unfortunate part of this is that everyone who resists vaccination is being lumped together. So you may have what you consider to be legitimate reasons for remaining unvaxxed, but you will be identified as a crazy fringe lunatic nut job. This should be familiar to those of us who follow a more progresive political path and reject the mainstream neoliberal orthodoxy.

      I have no time for the idiots. And the idjits outnumber the legitimate ones about 1000 to 1.

        We’re going to see a big debate about religious exemptions. Personally, I don’t think there should be religious exmptions from anything for any reason. If you think your mythical sky god is so powerful, the least He can do is protect you from ill effcts of a vaccine or a mask. But we know what to expect, and our pathetic court system will go along with much of it.

      never make it in the military.  Back when the draft was going on they would have got a less than honorable discharge if they refused all their shots.  No one complained back then, we grew up with mandatory vaccinations in school and knew they were for our protection.  Trump made this virus political and the sheep ate it up.  Not taking a vaccine is freedom, where in the hell they come up with this stupid shit?  Freedom is NOT spreading a deadly virus and killing people!  If these anti vaccine people would wear masks it might be helpful, but many don’t because they think wearing a mask is also against freedom. Stupidest shit I ever heard and it all started with the orange con man making kneeling a sign of disrespect. Should I apologize to my wife for asking her to marry me. . .?

      Trump was is con man, who told people what they wanted to hear. Conservatives, black & white thinkers, who are reality challenged as it is, felt themselves empowered. The rest of us are paying then price.
      How did refusing to mask up and/or refusing to get vaccinated, which is well know to pass the virus around and even kill people, called freedom?
      Another example of feeling empowered, is Texas, thinking that they have the power to enslave women.
      Never mind the Trump instigated an attempted coup on January 6, 2021.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
      The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
      Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

      How does anyone prove that they have truly religious reasons

      to resist vaccination? And, if those refusing to get the shot quit

      their jobs, will they claim discrimination when they don’t get

      unemployment checks? I think we are again getting on a slippery

      slope just as the government preventing opposition posting on

      social media via the private corporations. Watch for court cases.

      …some of them survived, others did not. Either way, I think the jury is in as to whether or not my Former Employer is going to send legions of angels out to protect the “true believers” from getting the disease.

      He’s not. End of story. End of religious objections.

      Then you have the folks who were hesitant because the vaccines didn’t have a true FDA approval, only an “emergency” authorization. Now that Pfizer has cleared that hurdle, I would expect those folks to drop that excuse and head to the nearest Pfizer injection site. Not sure why Moderna didn’t get the FDA nod right around the same time, as their vaccine was very similar to Pfizer’s. And I’m guessing the Johnson & Johnson will get there eventually, probably later because the vaccine itself appeared several months later than the MRNA jabs did. Since it’s a more “traditional” vaccine model, it would seem even more likely for easy FDA approval (assuming they figured out that blood clot issue that was affecting a small number of mortals who got that shot)

      So what’s left? The people opposed to ALL vaccines? Well, I guess that would be called “standing on principle”, but what do you do with that, in the case of a pandemic?
