Them! 10 May, 2021 I have noticed something of late. Perhaps you have as well. As I go about my day I meet people. Not out of choice mind you as I am terribly anti-social. But I meet people (they seem to be drawn to me) in the course of my day and being the drones that they are they all seem to mention with no small amount of pride and self satisfaction that they have received their “jab”. More and more I run into people like this. And it’s not just random strangers either. Just yesterday our youngest (the banker) came over for Mother’s Day (I can still say that, right?) and he proudly proclaimed that he and his Wife had gotten their second “jab”. According to him he was fine but his Wife was having a tough time with major flu like symptoms. A neighbor also came over and they too gloated about having received their “jab”. All recoiled a bit when they asked us if we had gotten ours yet and we told them in no uncertain terms that we weren’t going to. At the store the other day I met an acquaintance who, after the usual pleasantry's, told me how happy she was not to have to wear her mask anymore after receiving her “jab”. When I mentioned to her that I never wore one anyway and also had no intention of getting the “jab” she visibly backed away with no small look of terror in her eyes. Even the local news is running what for all intents and purposes is a propaganda blitz pushing the “jab” on everyone and making it sound as if people have a social obligation to get it to protect others. I spent a lifetime baby sitting society making sure everyone played nice together in law enforcement so my days of even caring about taking care of other people are well and truly over. I guess this is nothing more than a commentary on trends I am witnessing in the community around me as well as in general. People are being lead down a merry path and are more than happy to “go along”. Societal pressures push more and more to “go along to get along”. Critical thought is frowned upon. Individuality, real individuality not the faux “I’m different” individuality, is dying out and otherwise banished. As far as the “jab” goes, those of us who for whatever reason can’t or won’t get it, will slowly but surely be pushed out of the normal course of interacting in society. Either work, or insurance, or travel, or social venues will more and more push us to get the “jab”. Just the other day I had to go to the hospital for an appointment and during the course of the pre building admittance interview I was asked if I had received my “flu/pneumonia/covid” vaccine. Those that answered yes got a green sticker to wear while in the hospital, those that answered no were given an orange sticker to wear. I can see in the near future a time when those of us who hold out and refuse the “jab” will be ostracized, banished as pariahs, having become the new “unclean” in a world that is falling into a globalist medical tyranny. Personally I intend to hold out. I don’t have the pressure of supporting a family and needing a job. Insurance might be an issue with my health, but I could probably get by. As for going to the store for groceries, etc., I guess I’ll wear my orange sticker and go about my day as best I can. If it becomes too difficult as more and more pressure is applied to conform, what the heck, I am old and slowly but surely dying anyway, I’ll go out as I choose not as someone else chooses.
