No fucking way, and I pity anyone who endorses them. What I do with my body is private and my damn business, whether it's a flu shot (which is all this is, by the way), or anything else. I don't have to tell anyone what shots I've had (I'm not a puppy facing parvo), or haven't had, or any medical history. There are HIPAA laws to protect doctor-patient privilege aka privacy. Now folks wanna start putting that into an app on their phones?! GTFO.
Imagine the horror and disrepect if someone walked up to a woman and asked to see her abortion passport to get into a Christian owned business, or a vasectomy passport for a man to go to a Catholic church. And yes, I know abortions and ball snips aren't contagious.
As of today, the CDC's site says there have been 31,076,891 cases of Covid. There have been 559,741 deaths. If you divide the deaths by the total cases, it's 0.01801. That's 1.8% death rate. Which means, 99.981+/- who actually get Covid, survive it. Why the fuck do I need a passport for any of that?! How deadly, really, is something that can't even hit the 2% mark.
If the media started throwing up flu or common cold or abortion numbers on the news every evening to drill it in the fear factor, people would be up in arms about that. Sure, saying "over half a million people have died." Terrible, but add "...out of 332,278,200 people in the united states, and only about 10.69% have actually gotten this thing." No one wants to get it, but if you, your chances of being alive after are fucking spectacular.
By the way, how long are these passports supposed to last? A year? Six months? A decade? "Until it's gone?" This ain't 1930s Germany. I don't have to show my papers to move freely. If I do, then I'm not free, and last I checked I'm an autonomous human being who can do what he wants. Moreover, a bunch of old cranky white men write all that out on paper some 245 years ago.
I would beseech those who think this idea of vaccine passports as "normal" to reconsider how much freedom they've already needlessly given up, and how much more they're willing to in order to fit in with the crowd.
And listen - if you want to get any of the vaccines, go for it. I won't stop you. It's your body, and you can do what you wish with it and what you, as a thinking human being, decide is best for you. If you wanna have to have your papers ready at any given point for a virtual stop n' frisk, be my guest. I'll be the one walking past you, laughing.
don’t really care so much what people say about me because it is a reflection of who they r."
