Call this my third Essay on living with ADD and Depression and Anxiety… I had the most respect for these people. Not asking for a handout, just mutual support and understanding - and as always - laughing at the farce and foibles of life as you never can. I wouldn't be here if I couldn't laugh at myself, so why do others take yourselves so seriously?
The requirement of proof of vaccination to be in a public place, a fair and reasonable threshold to protect the majority of people and our economy and society, is very reasonable. And it is a very easy threshold for the unvaccinated to "cure" at no cost. It also allows them to refuse to be vaccinated without endangering those who are vaccinated.

Wouldn't that be an interesting world?
When it comes to water and toilet paper, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Fear is a multiplier, the more it's widely accepted, the more it grows. While there seems to be no connection right now between Coronavirus and running out of Charmin, that connection has been made out of fear and ignorance. And now, the legit fear of not being able to buy the basics because of others' panic-buying, is justified and multiplies all other fears.
The disconnect between those Americans essentially supporting greater Climate Change and more frequent and terrible natural disasters that some of them dying in, is astounding. It's like blocking a national effort to prevent the spread of Black Plague simply because Obama wants to do it (no doubt a re-definition of Black Plague to them).
This post is a rarity here at PlanetPOV, our posts always present original content but this remarkable episode of Vice reveals such a major breakthrough on the prospects of not treating but curing cancer, it deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.
According to Christie, this is what The Founders had in mind when they wrote the Bill of Rights, "Hey Jefferson, don't forget to add that bit I want about assuring all citizens the right to be carriers of Black Plague! FREEDOM!"
