    Responsible Idiocy

    By on May 28, 2021 in See It Here

    Half of America is fully vaccinated. The other half either believe vaccines are a lot of BS or use the argument they can’t take time off from work or it’s against their religion. Yeah, there’s a lot of excuses being used, some actually show creativity.

    The governors of California, Maryland, Ohio and Colorado have a creative idea too: pay people to get the vaccine. Or get a full ride college scholarship. They offer sweepstakes to do what can’t be done.

    It’s scary how this has set aside the excuse for not getting off work or the government telling us what to do.

    We see interviews with people having just nabbed $1 million of state funds to do something they should be willing to do because it’s responsible. Money talks. And it can allow you to set aside excuses.

    It will be interesting to see what these “lucky people” decide to do with the dollars they’ve been handed. Give back to the state? Talk to other no-vaxers about getting the shot? Donate to their local city or college?

    We need to pay people to stop at stop signs. Or vote.

    Or, think.
