We don't need no Stinkin Syringes

The Next Pandemic. 

 

How quickly we forget!

In 1905 Irish statesman Edmund Burke said, “Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.”  and in a 1948 speech to the House of Commons, Sr. Winston Churchill paraphrased Santayana when he said “those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.“  

A couple of other old sayings come to mind when I think of this past “pandemic”. “Figures lie and liars figure” as well as “fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice shame on you”.

Honestly, I don’t think we know the half of it at this time. 

A lot of concerns are being raised, especially “what is this going to cost us”. What if it’s true that this vaccine is causing sterilization among young women (a huge concern for me, the father of a 20 year old daughter)?  

How many generations will it take to pay back all the stimulus money handed out?  

Will the first amendment ever be restored or will those who oppose government propaganda forever be suppressed from now on?  

If someone sneezes will Governers across the nation once again rip our rights away without proper legislation?  

So many questions. 

All these thoughts come to mind when asked “how do I see my personal life changing post-pandemic". A great question raised by the challenge from Active Rain Challenge of June 2021. (Thank you Debe Maxwell, CRS )

 

For me, my first reaction if there is another pandemic will be be “dang, not again”. My second reaction is going to be to run to the store and buy toilet paper because no matter what happens there will be a lot of crap flying around. Gee Whiz! 

One of the challenge questions is “how do you see your life changing post-pandemic?”. Well bucko, it’s already changed! 

#1) No matter which administration trots out an expert in the field of (your choice here) I am going to view them as having the credibility of a weather meteorologist and keep in mind a free phone app is just as likely to be correct as their “expert”. 

#2) I’m going to pay quick attention to hording trends and buy a zillion of that product as well as it's stock on the stock market.

#3) I’m going to turn ALL news and social media, except Active Rain, off for a year. 

#4) to paraphrase the famous line of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre: We don’t need no stink’in inoculations.

As a matter of fact I do James Dray 😉. I believe the disruption in life that the government caused was worse then what the pandemic would have cause had it been allowed to run it's course.

Agreed Michael Jacobs . Dr Fouchi has been documentedly wrong so many times I don't thing the National Weather Service would hire him.

Good morning Bob. You speak more truth than you know! As for toilet paper, they will never have enough in Washington DC since they are huge crap slingers. Stock up, they are throwing it in your diretion! Enjoy your toilet paper hoard. We are all going to need it.

Yes they will Ed Silva and our children and their children will pay all their lives to dig our nation out of debt.

Thank you Wayne Martin . The financial debt from this is astounding as it is and that doesn't even include the upcoming  "infrustructure" bill BUT what I am most worried about is the possibility that these innoculations being forced on our children will indeed sterilize them as some are already saying it has.

Bob,

The governor of California is also doing a stimulus $50,000 contest for being vaccinated, and a stimulus akin to the administrations.  And he wants his executive powers for as long as "he feels" he should have them...Toilet paper manufacturers will be the place to invest...Everyting is very Charmin!  Love the post, you are so creative.  A

Hello Bob, interesting post to sharewith us.  I now see states having contest to get the shot and then I see our government are paying for other company to get the shot.  We have lots of things we need to spend that money here in the US.

Hi Bob- loved your post. We need to move forward. And as excited that we are to drop the masks we can't lose sight of what else is going on in our country. I still have my stash that I saved from early 2020!   And for the first time, I see companies advertising starting hourly rates and signing bonuses outside their stores!  Don't get me started. 

That said, thank you for participating in the June Challenge.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel have you heard the latest... "Joints for Jabs"? No kidding! The State of Washington is giving anyone who comes in free pot.

Will Hamm what do you think of the plan the State of Washington just rolled out today... and I truly mean "rolled out"? They are ging out pot if you come in.

This is a topic that should get people started (and angery) Kathy Streib . As I mentioned, I am not only concerned about the money but will my daughter end up unable to have children due to the innoculation she had to have for school?

Hey there, Bob! We share a lot of the same sentiments - if we see it coming again, we will definitely be doing things differently!

 

As for the vaccines, being a former nurse, I view them as flu shots and vaccinations we give to our children. I hope your daughter has ZERO ill-effects from it.

 

Thanks so much for your entry in this month's challenge!

Thank you Debe Maxwell, CRS . I myself was eager to get vaccineated (and I did) but my wife and son have not because both are convinced that childhood vaccinatiions may have caused his autism.
