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 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?

Hurry! Hurry!

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?

Or not?

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.

    I agree with you. It’s very confusing and it makes hard to believe anything we are told. Remember Dr. Fauci telling us in the beginning that masks didn’t work and we shouldn’t wear them? That was to manipulate us from buying them so there were enough supplies for the healthcare workers. Why didn’t he tell us the truth?

      I know..that was a real trip outta the gate. Just be straight with people..that’s all I want.You don’t have to sugar coat anything for me, I do have an attention span of more than 10 seconds and I can manage shades of grey.. everything doesn’t have to be black and white-either/or…..Lastly, don’t use fear as a tool- I’m exhausted from it..just share the data that you have so I can make good decisions.

    Exactly! Why take away hope that the vaccinations will help us return to normal? Because if they don’t return us to normal, why would anyone get one? And if we’re never returning to normal, then what incentive does anyone have to follow the rules at all? If we’re all going to be stuck in our houses, alone, until we grow old and die, then I’d rather get the virus and die from it now! That’s extreme, but you know what I mean. They’re not thinking this through. The constant “doom and gloom” messages just mean people will ignore the warnings altogether.

    It was obviously the right moment to streak and get the attention of many.
