Interesting figures on the front page today about the number of health care workers who have lost jobs because of not taking the vaccine. Oh, boo hoo. Being a bleading heart liberal and lawyer, I must say oh boo hoo and feel sorry for them, right? Where is the number of people whom I have known who have died because of COVID-19 after refusing a vaccine. What are those numbers? Why make us feel sorry for these healthcare workers? What is the purpose for making us feel sorry for them? And where are the statistics of those who are not against the vaccine who have caught the COVID-19 virus and died? Or for those who have the vaccine and caught the virus and perhaps have not suffered as much as death, but still suffer? Why not project feeling bad for these others?D
Why did your newspaper make us feel bad and a huge photograph of someone with a sign, “Honk for medial freedom”? Oh, yeah. What about a sign which says, “honk for all American’s freedom to live and move beyond this war on a virus.” Or, a sign which reads, “honk for the freedom of all to be able to not wear masks and get a virus because it is no longer necessary.” What does that mean, only if we die and go to heaven? What a joke. We all want the ability to seek “life, liberty, and pursue happiness” while on this earth. These people seeking their own idea of “medical freedom” create a hell on earth for all of us.
I can go beyond this with other matters. How about my freedom NOT to pay such GODDAMN high prices for prescriptions and eye injections while on Medicare and not with a job with a medical insurance. Excuse me for saying, GODDAMN, but that is the way I feel about the evil people with greed and selfishness at big pharma and big insurance with their evil love of money. Yes, I mean it. GODDAMN them in the big fat lazy boardrooms at the top with hedge hogs and corporate welfare, while working to deny the return on investments of capitalism that we as Americans should be receiving after long-term investments in healthcare and Medicare (plus interest). Where is my “medical freedom” after spending tons and tons of money in support of organizations researching solutions for diabetes, heart, Alzheimer’s, and cancer? But really. Spending money on investment in a supposed CAPITALIST… CAPITALIST… CAPITALIST… CAPITALIST… CAPITALIST…. economics for many years and that is not very important at all. So we give a voice on the front page of a newspaper in favoring these idiots who deny us our freedom to live in peace and justice in this society – with their loud microphones they are given. Where is my microphone?
There are other matters i could mention which address freedoms for us. Personal injury lawyers are another example, with people making money by pitting Americans against Americans and proclaiming a religious belief that to everything there is a good and an evil and never is there “time and unforseen circumstances which befall us all (Ecclesiastes). Sure. I am cherry-picking the Bible when I say this. But is that as bad as the cherry-picking of the Bible by those against the vaccines? My cherry-picking involves examples in the Bible which demonstrate a God with agape for all God’s children, not a chosen race, religion, heterosexual traditionalism, or white power, etc.
How many have died because they did not get vaccinated? How many have died because of the spread of the virus while catering to the big mouths like those on the front page of today’s newspaper? Perhaps inquiring minds would like to know, but are denied when a newspaper chooses to invoke sensationalist journalism on its front page rather than present ALL the facts. Emotions of sensationalist journalism suck, big time.
And a member of the royal society also said that we need to devote more of our time and resources to fighting the problems on earth, before going off into outer space. Stuff that into your boots, Mr. Bezos, the trillionaire. Kudos to people like Bill Gates, one time person at the help of Microsoft, for working for world health considerations.
