Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency Physician and Professor of Health Policy and Management at George Washington University, and a frequent guest on CNN. During her recent appearance Dr. Leana Wen explains that there’s a very small window of opportunity in which people can be convinced to get the vaccine in order to obtain their freedoms. They need to tie reopening policy to vaccination status, because otherwise the states will open anyway and people will simply enjoy their freedoms without getting the vaccine. She literally said, “What is the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people?” I shit you not.
I have no judgement against those who have chosen to get the vaccine and those who haven’t, but the very idea that officials feel they can dangle a carrot over our heads to insure cooperation and hold our FREEDOMS hostage should offend EVERYONE.
What in the seventh circle of hell is going on here? WHY are people okay with getting permission from the government to live, and HOW did we get to a place where the government holds that much power?
Yet another example of the quiet part being said out loud.
According to the CDC, almost 80% of people hospitalized for Covid were overweight or obese. But they’re applauding Krispy Kreme for offering to give you free donuts every day for a year if you’ve been vaccinated. I feel like I’m in the twilight zone. Honestly, if you go to Krispy Kreme daily, yeah, you’re probably so unhealthy that you DO need the vaccine. That’s fine it it’s your target audience. But it’s not; they’re targeting every person in the country for this.
At this point, anything the media lauds, I am automatically suspicious of. Anything they label as good I have to be careful of. It’s not just clown world, it’s opposite world these. I don’t like this creepy fun house we’re living in. Please let me out! I didn’t even do anything for April Fool’s Day this year. Everything is a freaking joke.
