It Must Be Said

I have listened to the CDC, Dr. Fauci, and the media, for the past 18 months, and I’ve concluded that they really don’t know what they’re talking about. Our supposed trustworthy sources have misinformed, misled, and have been inconsistent with their numerous recommendations concerning COVID-19 since the very beginning of the so-called pandemic. The virus is real, but there are many things that have not been said, but must be said. I’ve grown rather weary of the popular soundbite “I listen to the data and the science” from those pushing the coronavirus shots. Because I listen as well. I just decipher the data differently – without bias. And doesn’t science suggest there is no God and Creationism is purely a myth? Not on my watch!

Many folks presume those resistant to getting inoculated are either uneducated, anti-vaxxers, Trumpers, or Fox News viewers. I assure you, I am none of those. I simply use common sense and biblical principles to form my opinions and make my decisions. I also pride myself in dealing with facts. The fact remains that a minute percentage of the U.S. population has contracted COVID-19, and an even smaller percentage of those have succumbed to the virus. And we now know that the current vaccines are not anywhere near foolproof against the Delta variant.

We also know those inoculated can still be carriers of the virus. Yet the media, and seemingly a certain political party, is blaming the unvaccinated (me) for the latest increase in covid cases. So why would I believe, as the President has stated, this is now the “pandemic of the unvaccinated” when that sentiment is absolutely untrue? Another fact is that most people who contract the virus do not end up in the hospital. Therefore, understand that many of the reports touting overwhelmed hospitals are insincere tactics to make matters appear worse than they actually are. This leads me to my main point.

The powers that be have tried guilt, incentives and bribes, and now threats in an attempt to force their misguided will on to the general public. I can’t imagine anyone being okay with blatant discrimination and segregation in this day and age. However, that’s precisely what’s happening before our very eyes. Numerous U.S. companies are now forcing their employees to be inoculated or else be terminated. CNN just fired two employees for showing up to work unvaccinated. The National Football League now has two sets of rules this year: harsh ones for the unvaccinated and none really for the vaccinated.

Unfortunately, the only way to combat the spread of covid throughout the NFL this season is probably to require ALL within the organization to mask up and be tested daily (not just the unvaccinated). So, wake up Commissioner Goodell! And wake up America! We’re seeing the discriminatory vaccine passport implemented in – of course – New York and California. Soon, other extremely liberal states will follow suit I’m sure. How are these things even remotely acceptable in the good ol’ U.S. of A.? In France, things are even worse. COVID-19 health passes are required to enter cafes, restaurants, and “in some cases, hospitals.” Hospitals? You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

The thought of injecting a foreign substance into my body, with the properties of the virus I’m trying to avoid, doesn’t make much sense to me. And nobody – NOBODY – knows for certain if those inoculated won’t develop any consequential health issues in a year, 5 years, or 10 years from now. I believe social distancing, practicing good hygiene, and living a healthy lifestyle is the best defense against any virus. We should all be afforded the right to decide for ourselves whether or not to get the COVID-19 vaccination without being harassed or discriminated against. What’s the saying? My body, my choice!

We can choose to be fearful and stop living our lives, or we can treat the virus for what it is – just another possible health ailment to be aware of. I choose the latter. I have not once swayed from my position to not get vaccinated. Today, in fact, I have never been more comfortable with my well-thought-out decision. I won’t judge those who’ve chosen to get inoculated IF they don’t judge me for my decision to not get vaccinated. Now it has been said.
