12. Hmmm. So perhaps my constant runny nose is Omicron, not allergies?

Just wondering.

Actually, I know it's allergies, which is highly annoying. I'm reasonably certain I have not had Covid, although I suppose it's possible I got it and was totally asymptomatic. But my nose does run all the time, alas, poor me.

4. The more you want them to get it, the more they dig in their heels.

Surely we've all seen or met that child: the little s**t who can be counted on to ruin the party, destroy the presents, set the fire, or do whatever awful thing is within his reach and power. The Beavis, the Eric Cartman, the Bart Simpson without the scripted self-awareness and/or regret. When a parent or bystander asks why he's done that awful thing, he has no answer--but he's clearly reveling in the attention, even if he's about to suffer for his idiocy.

Add thirty or forty years to that and you have your average antivaxxer.

6. It's easy to stereotype them.

I'm related to some of them, the parents of my ten grandchildren. My experience of them is of intelligent, caring, but gullible people who have fallen in with a crowd that believes as they do and reinforces them.

8. Pretty much



I live in a red area.

The propaganda is winning.

Most of these people never gave a damn about politics until Reagan convinced them that "others" were to blame for all their troubles.

The propaganda machine now is supercharged.

10. Yep.

Sucked in by conspiracy theorists post 9/11 as they tried to make sense of the world. That was the beginning.

13. If getting stereotyped is the worst thing that happens to them, they'll be lucky.

My experience has been the exact opposite, aside from the "gullible" part.

7. That'll convince them



The more people pressure them, the more they think it's nefarious somehow. Oh well, there may be fewer of them soon.

11. I've been arguing with my brother about getting the booster, he keeps asking "how many more?"

I know he doesn't like to go out much and I convinced him to get vaccinated last spring. But when I stopped by just before Christmas, he had a surprise for me - he showed me his vaccination card with a third line filled in. He had to out to get his prescription filled (he goes through the drive thru) and noticed that the lighted sign at the vaccine clinic where he got his first two shots is accepting walk-ins - so he got his booster a week ago Thursday. I told him that's all I needed for Christmas!
