Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying

Everyone will recognize the title is from Stephen King's masterpiece The Shawshank Redemption. The real title is Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, but the film's producers probably thought that gave away a crucial clue to how the protagonist escapes prison.

The concept from the movie's iconic line is always true, but especially in these times of lunacy and fear. Most of the US is vaccinated for covid. So most of the country has gotten busy dying. The minority of folk that see through this latest gigantic lie are still busying living. 

There are more people with common sense than the lying media would like us to believe. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are fools. These are the same deluded people who think either their religion will save them, or there is no GOD. The same idiots who think you can lose weight by taking a pill. The same rubes who voted for our current president. Some of them think the LDS church president talks to GOD. 

If you die of covid, or a car crash, or old age, or an accident, you have no control of that. No one is getting out of here alive. 

If you die from the fake-vaccine, you did have a choice. 

Living in fear is not just oxymoronic. It is completely moronic.

Risk and Reward

As a golfer I usually think of "risk/reward" in terms of the benefits or damages to my final score when attempting a difficult shot over water, sand, or trees. In this trivial example there are two possible outcomes and the label of risk/reward correctly applies. I could pull the shot off and save a stroke or two. Or I could mishit the shot and hurt my score by incurring extra strokes when I should have been more prudent.

As a concerned person during the times of covid, I can boil my beliefs done to this on the critical nature of the vaccine risk and reward argument.

There is no reward in taking any of the covid vaccines. There is only risk.

If you are old and know that getting covid has a better chance of ending your life than that of a younger person, you should still not be vaccinated. Why? The vaccine will end your life sooner than getting covid would. 

You may have a loved one who is immune-compromised, and think you should get the vaccine in an attempt to protect them.  You now are damaging your own health, and with no benefit to your loved one.

The covid vaccines will not prevent your from getting covid. In fact, they will make you more likely in the long term to become immune-compromised yourself, and get a serious case of covid, your now vaccine-weakened body will now struggle to fight off.

Children do not die of Covid, and should never be vaccinated. Tread lightly in this area because if I recall JESUS really loves children.

The bottom line is that there is no person on this planet whose health will benefit from a covid vaccine. The only people who gain are those profiting from the world's fear and ignorance.
