The road is long, with many a winding turn He’s not heavy, he’s my brother
Let’s just be honest shall we, because when I talk to you, that’s all I know how to be. Biden and the Democrats have fought the good fight. They have used science, facts, the bully pulpit, pleading, bribes and mandates to get more than 220 million Americans vaccinated against Covid-19. 220 million citizens vaccinated in 14 months is an incredible number, especially when considering the headwinds the Democrats were sailing into. But it’s over. It has to be.
Because people are sick and tired of being sick and tired. And I’m one of them. Biden finally made good on a multi Presidential promise to get our troops out of Afghanistan, because the nation was weary of war. But he’s losing this battle as well. A recent poll indicated that 70% of Americans are ready to move on from Covid. That number can’t just be GOP fucktards. A good portion of Democrats and independents are also sick of living under two years of partial lockdown. That’s a simple fact, and there is nothing that Biden or the White House, or messaging can do to change that. People are sick and tired of Covid.
We have reached the point of what economists call diminishing returns. Pretty much anybody in the country that is even seriously considering being vaccinated has already been vaccinated by now. And the FUX News fueled GOP fucktards on the right are never going to get vaccinated. Those are just simple facts.
Look, like most of you, I am double vaxxed as well as boosted, just like Teri. And both Teri and I have survived a tussle with Omicon. But at this point, even the CDC says that there isn’t much more we can do to protect ourselves. We’re as good as it gets.
My wants are simple. I want to walk into my local casino, order a beer, sit down at a machine, grab a swig, hit my vape module, without having to drop down a goddamn mask in order to do it. I want to walk into Smith’s (Kroger) to grab some groceries without looking like Jesse James showing up to rob the place. And it turns out that so do most Americans. The 70% who are fully compliant with the government vaccination orders.
The Biden administration, as well as Democratic Governors need to realize that it’s over. Restrictions aren’t going to do any more good. People just aren’t listening. I want to walk into a locals casino or a store with the breeze in my face. We have done everything they asked. There is nothing more to give.
And as for the anti vaxxer GOPtards? Fuck ‘em. There’s an old saying, You can’t rape the willing. Well, you can’t save the unrepentant either. The vast majority of us will be able to go back to living our lives with little or no inconvenience. And as regarding the fucktards? We suffered through 2 years to five them time to see the light. Time for them to make or break it on their own.
It is time for Democratic Governors to lift mask restrictions, as well as gathering restrictions. Businesses should be free to require proof of vaccination for entry. But I find this interesting. A Washington State trooper quit in October rather than give into Governor Inslee’s vaccine mandate. His final statement was Jay Inslee can kiss my ass. Fox made a celebrity of him. He died last Friday on a ventilator from Covid. Since his departure in October, his GoFundMe page had raised about $7100. Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC asked his viewers to chip in to help the family of this tragedy, and within 15 minutes, $10,000 poured in. And as O’Donnell pointed out, Rupert Murdoch won’t pitch in a dime. There’s nothing else to do.
