Pretty much just a reshuffle and recount of the same people.

I was contacted by some .org outfit asking about my vaccine status and what I thought about mandates and such.
Being the person I am I told them to pack sand, it was none of their business. They persisted, calling me 3 more times, almost calling me a traitor for not sharing.
Life can be fun if you play the game right.

In my family it’s always the far right gun loving Bible thumpers (not help your neighbor Christians but hellfire types). I keep hearing about far-left anti vaxxers but I don’t know any personally. Like unicorns I’ve never seen one. Same folks believe in alternative treatments. Ivermectin, blood cleaning with homemade machines…

I don’t argue with them because logic doesn’t work. I’m just in a wait and see mode. Maybe they will make it maybe not but it’s out of my hands. There’s only so much you can do.

I got my shots, and am getting a booster next week.

Hope it's the right thing.

Just don't know what to trust in America these days. WHO suggestions, Federal reserve, the Stock Market, big business, societal norms and institutions. Even promised Social Security benefits and retirement ages

So uncertain.

Then there's elections. Bush and Scalia stole 2000. Bush and Diebold stole 2004. Putin and Trump stole 2016. (Just going by a multitude of posts here).

Just don't know what to touch.

Hopefully the vaccines are real and not just a boondoggle for BigDemPharma.

All true stats. Nothing wrong with that.

But if one says "Coastal Liberals want their SALT deductions"...then they block the schoolhouse door, get the firehose out, and shout 'personal attack' and go into therapy online sessions.

Hopefully vax refusal will thin the ranks of all of those categories.
Natural selection, and all that. Leaving society far better off.

Plenty here in the Emerald Triangle.

Compare Humboldt Co. With Fresno Co. You'll see a daily positivity rate 10x greater in Devin Nunes' district

"I don’t argue with them because logic doesn’t work."

So true. But I still try every now and then.

Yes, you do. That's why you are vaccinated.

If they haven't managed to procreate much, this may well act as a shot of chlorine in the gene pool.

No, I don't.

Only Trumpers - ahem - know absolutes.

You make the best guess you can based on info provided, but only Trumpers are so self assured.

Anyway....

Just don't know what to trust. Vaccines, airline tickets, Federal Reserve, stock market.

And then - election results.

In 2000 we were told "Bush was selected! Supremes gave it to him!)

In 2004 we were told "Bush and Diebold machines stole it!"

2008 and 2012 were fine apparently.

In 2016 "Putin! Putin! Collusion!"

So we've been told by the Left time and again elections aren't legit.

So even that now, I just don't know what the believe.

Spread the word - I do!

Trumpers and Falwells think they can tell other people how they think and why. KellyAnne was good at it too.

It doesn't work on me.

After the plethora of examples I listed, of liberals doubting election outcomes.....man oh man, I just don't know what to trust. Elections, vaccines, heck even a simple airline ticket.

*Smile*

Look around at your country.

I'm not the only one doubting.

Though I do make a point to post it all over the place.

:) Doing my part ya know? Civic duty. On YouTube is where a surprising number of people glom on. It gets rather dusty. But many of them also have ....doubts in things. Health for "Democracy".
