I have learned of another victim of the non-vaccinated today.
My girl friend's grand daughter has come down with covid. She's 5 years old and got it in school. No vaccination approval yet for their age group.
Schools have always been a hot bed for any disease that is communicable. Then the kids bring it home to share with the parents, who go to work and share it with their co-workers.
This virus is non-political. It doesn't care what your politics are. It doesn't care what your beliefs are.
When someone dies of a heart condition because they can't find a bed in 40 different hospitals in the ICU, it tells you those who won't get vaccinated are clogging up the system totally, to the point of medical failure. Since they won't get a vaccination to help stop the deadly part of this disease, they are causing repercussions for everyone else by their lack of caring beyond the 'me' and 'freedumbs'.
This nation is falling apart with two sides that don't seem to be able to agree on anything to keep it going. Patriotism for the good of the nation has fallen to the wayside in favor of 'me' being most important. Trouble is each 'me' got assistance to be where they are by everyone else not being a 'I'm the only one that matters' attitude. Education, public services, are both things that the public as a group pay for, which is not a 'me' but all of us.
This rift is turning us into a third world country and quickly. Come December, when all these renters that haven't paid get tossed out, the one thing the government doesn't want to see is going to come to the forefront. Those who are unemployed, homeless, lack food security, and threatened with a virus gone crazy, will do the one thing it doesn't want to see. Protest, raise cain about the things that were not taken care of in the last bubble, and possibly threaten revolution, as businesses crater, the economy sinks to new lows, and stagflation takes hold and makes it the problem to add to all the other issues.
Pardon, I'm just teed off over the latest news I got... end of rant.
