When did requiring children to be vaccinated become a symptom of a dictatorial regime?
Oh, wait! It’s the tenor of this contentious time when everything becomes challenged … even for no good reason!
I am an old man in my early 70s. I recall vividly getting vaccinated every year before the start of school. I would sit in the school nurse’s office and get my shots for whatever was on the table at the time: measles, whooping cough, TB, you name it. Mom and Dad never bitched about my sisters and me needing to get shots.
We just did it, started school and went about doing whatever it was we were doing when we were kids.
Now, though, our children are threatened by a potentially fatal virus. It’s killing Americans each day. The COVID-19 virus is still a part of our lives and, sadly, part of many Americans’ deaths.
However, the push to get our children vaccinated, along with their elders, is running into resistance from those who are yapping and yammering about government “overreach,” about how the feds are dictating how we must conduct our affairs.
“It’s my choice to get vaccinated,” we hear from some of the dipsh**s out there. Yeah, it’s their choice, but only when it doesn’t threaten others’ lives. When they refuse to get vaccinated, they threaten everyone else around them.
CNN anchor John King spoke eloquently the other day about the unknown and unseen threats posed by those who refuse to take precautions to protect themselves against the killer virus. They expose themselves and potentially others to mortal threats. That ain’t right!
So, let’s all stop the carping and griping about a “government overreach” that is nothing of the sort.
The numbers don’t lie. Those who are vaccinated against the COVID virus are much more secure than those who refuse.
