5. This is what makes me wonder...

if we'll ever stop this pandemic. Even in our own country I doubt we'll reach herd immunity, because of the republican morons who not only won't get vaccinated, they won't even wear a mask. This virus is mutating so quickly I'm not sure we can pull even with it, let alone get in front of it. Will we need two booster shots a year soon, and how long before people tire of that, and just decide to take their chances?
Then there are the poor and/or dangerously mismanaged countries, who can't afford the vaccine, and have no infrastructure in place to distribute it , even if it was given to them. How do we stop the spread there?
I'm generally not a pessimistic person, but I am a realist. Human beings, being as selfish and self-centered as they are, just won't look out for themselves, let alone their neighbors. And those living in what DJT called the "shit hole" countries? Well....it's America first baby!
Hooray for me and to hell with you. What the hell is wrong with people, and I'm not speaking only of Americans? Is this the way the world ends? Is this the way that the world ends? Not with a bang, but with a totally selfish whimper?
