Why Take A Chance?

We had lunch at Twin Peaks once again, that’s twice in one week, and yes, this was completely Jan’s idea. Originally we were going to have lunch at Snooze, but it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind, right?

Am I a lucky guy, or what?

Afterwards, we went by the Kroger’s Pharmacy on El Camino to pick up our first 3 month set of prescriptions under their Rx Saving Club, and there were no surprises.

The total was $36, the same as I had figured on. And much less than the $134 for the same ones under Sam’s Plus Card, and the $160 for the same ones at WalMart.

So in one three month order of our prescriptions, I saved more money than the $72 that the Kroger plan cost me for the entire year. In fact it covered that amount and left me $26 over. And once I cancel my Sam’s Club Plus membership, I’ll save another $55.

A really great deal.

According to online articles, more than 25% of the public have decided that they are not going to get the China virus vaccine, and they can’t think of anything that could change their mind.

I’m in this group. And I’ve told you why.

And even more just aren’t going to get the vaccine until it’s officially ‘FDA Approved’, as opposed to the ‘Emergency Use Authorization’ (EUA) that it was issued under now. Then they will think about.

And more and more people are noticing the increasing number of severe complications and even deaths that seemed to be associated with CoVid vaccines.

In the U.S. according to the CDC VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) there have been almost 150,000 serious illnesses and over 4500 deaths associated with the CoVid vaccines. And that’s equal to all the deaths from all vaccines over the last 20 years. And a Harvard study done for the CDC shows that only a small percentage of complications/deaths are actually reported to VAERS.

And in Europe, it’s even worse, with almost 350,000 serious complications, and almost 8,000 deaths.

And yes, these are small percentages, compared to the total number of people who have been vaccinated, but as somebody once said that it’s serious if it’s a friend, family member, or even you.

And now with less than one third of the U.S. population having been fully vaccinated, the daily rate of vaccinations is dropping off rapidly. And for some reason the ‘authorities’ just can’t figure out why.

Well, it’s pretty obvious to me.

Between the stories of people getting CoVid weeks/months after already having had it, and the stories of people getting CoVid weeks/months after already having both shots, they’re thinking, “why take a chance?”

And of course, they’re also being told that even if you’ve already had  it, or have been vaccinated for it, you’ve still got to wear the mask, social distance, no groups over 25 people, no singing, no dancing, and even no standing.

And it’s even a joke in other countries as well. Not just the U.S.

Hong Kong Virus Rules

So in many people’s mind, if the vaccines don’t seem to really do any good, and they still have to follow all the CoVid rules, and the vaccine might kill them, “why take a chance?”

Why, indeed.

Thought For The Day:

Thinking Caps are no longer being issued, but there must be a warehouse full of them somewhere.
