We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Of course it is hyperbole. No one thinks for a second that our government would bankrupt a million small businesses with a shut down that serves no useful purpose except to make it appear that they are doing something. No one thinks they would send six cops to arrest you because you didn't have a mask on while at the same time sending zero cops to smash and grab robberies. No one thinks that they would go crazy and kick a 2 YO child and her parents off a plane because the child didn't want to wear the mask. No one believes for a second that they would fire "heros" if they didn't get covid vaccination especially if they had already had covid or had health conditions that counter indicated getting the shot. No one expects that our government will fine you or put you in jail for disobeying unconstitutional mandates. No one would ever think that the doctors and hospitals would refuse to honor a patients right to try Ivermectin to cure the covid but in fact would rather see them die. And don't for a second think that we believe that our states or federal governments will create internment camps to put people in for disagreeing with any of these rules. NO! No one believes any of these things for a second. Ohh! Did I mention sending sick people to nursing homes and not telling any nursing home patients what you were doing?
Why not require that the unvaccinated where some kind of marker sewn on their clothing, perhaps a star or something, so we will all know who should be shunned and not allowed into store and restaurants. Then too later when they continue to refuse to get the vax we would be able to easily identify them to round them up for the internment camps. I mean, come on, isn't it time for some kind of final solution to this problem?
