I had a COVID-19 test today, just the active test as no blood was drawn.

 

My test results are negative.

Yet.

 

I went to the grocery store after my test, I saw a woman and her daughter that had secure chin masks.  At least their chins will not get sick.  The sad part is the mother was talking to a store employee and the employee didn't say, "Put your mask on correctly."

I for one don't want to be forced to receive a vaccine that hasn't

been well tested. If you want to be part of a mass experiment, be my

guest.

That's part of the problem. I plan to refuse the vaccine for exactly this reason. And if that were the whole picture, it wouldn't be much of a problem.
The problem comes about if they make the vaccine "mandatory" -- and there are a lot of ways they can make it *effectively* mandatory, mark-of-the-beast style by excluding the unvaccinated from being able to participate in society in any meaningful way.

For a disease that is turning out to be far less lethal than originally assumed, mandatory prescription of a rushed-to-market vaccine is, shall we say, contraindicated by common sense.



On the other side of the argument, I fully support the right of any individual to make an informed decision to take an untested or minimally tested medication if they and their doctor have concluded that the potential benefits outweigh the risks (aka "right to try").

On a side note, I think it's interesting that we're not hearing as much about the cytokine storms as we were in relation to COVID.

Too many people wear chin masks.  Too many people don't cover their nose.
I see store employees that don't have their nose covered and apparently no one says anything.

 

Today I went to a health specialist, he kept his mask around his chin pulling it up and down several times.

I was in Costco the other day and saw someone with zero mask. Watching people look at him was pretty interesting.

It will be mandatory.

I am noticing lots of people wearing the mask over their mouth but not their nose. This tells me that they're doing it because they have to, rather than because they're afraid of the virus.

I agree with voluntary informed decision making - but if it is somehow gamed so that voluntary informed decision making AGAINST participating is made effectively impossible - that might be the time for exercising particular constitutional protections against tyranny.

Well, it was inevitable. First family member to die of covid was today. Elderly, didn't really put up much of a fight.


*Actually probably a few days ago since she was found dead at home during a wellness check.

It bothers me how often I go into a medical facility and people are not following proper mask protocol.  I was in a doctor's office yesterday, none of the PA or nurses were wearing masks.  This wasn't a private closed off room, this was a hallway with a desk that ran along the wall, medical equipment on the desk and cabinets on the walls.
