Even the Super Bowl “streaker” had an agenda; his ‘spontaneous’ run across the field was actually a carefully planned publicity stunt on behalf of an adult, porn website.
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting so tired of being manipulated.. there’s always some ulterior motive, some underlying message to absolutely everything. Take for example last week’s attention grabbing, seemingly coordinated, streak of stories basically warning people “Just because you’re vaccinated, doesn’t mean… ” followed by the updated list of things vaccinated folks shouldn’t do..which looked an awful lot like the old list of things unvaccinated folks shouldn’t do.
Want to visit your vaccinated grandma? You guys better all do a ten day quarantine first and sit outside..NO HUGS.
Want to eat at an indoor restaurant? Too bad, it’s too soon, order pick up instead.
Want to travel on a plane? Don’t you dare..now is not a good time.
No, I’m not a conspiracy nut, but I did start asking myself some questions:
Why, just as the vaccination program is gaining steam, would stories start popping up everywhere that being inoculated won’t really change things for you? Why throw a wet blanket on this important effort to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible?
Come and get it!
Just don’t expect any real benefit when you do.
I’m not sure that’s a good sales pitch..
We do want people to get these shots, right?
I don’t think too many of us would spend hours cooped up on an airplane only to get off and find we didn’t go anywhere. Do we really want to tell people who have stood in line, worked in healthcare, stayed home for a year and/or suffered vaccine side effects that it was all for naught, that nothing will change for them?
Let’s not risk the entire vaccination program in an effort to maintain control over people’s behavior..which I think is what’s REALLY going on here. Are “experts” worried that the newly vaccinated are going to shed their clothes (and their masks) and go streak through local grocery stores? Maybe so..
But there’s enough confusion and misinformation out there already, let’s not add to it.
