Thoughts and prayers are effective against neither coronavirus nor mass shootings. Or anything else.

McClure is 23 and suspicious of conflicting information she's heard about the vaccine.

But six months later, despite having watched a loved one struggle with the illness, some of Allie's closest friends and family remain unvaccinated.


Unbelievably stubborn, or unbelievably stupid? Yes.

As long as these idiots honestly believe that getting vaccinated means they are joining the Democratic Party, they will stay unvaccinated.

My neighbor is an engineer an works with rockets.  Another one works with the ISS.  I told them that come next New Years, I'm going to buy some of those big rockets from the firework stand, strap them to my waist with duct tape and fly to the space station.  They told me I was stupid and will end up in the hospital with a burnt ass.  But I read on the internet that it will work so there is conflicting information.  I'm going to try it anyway.

I remember seeing a documentary about a wiley coyote who did this; strapped some fireworks to his back in an effort to kill and eat a cruel and heartless roadrunner. I think it worked out well for him.

If they did get vaccinated, they might admit to themselves that other things they believe are also bullshiat, and start thinking about leaving the Republican Party.
So they aren't completely wrong.

The whole notion of getting information from Facebook is astounding.  If people want information, then watch several different news sources.  Watch CNN, Fox, and something else and weigh what they say.  Its not that hard...but, it would require people to come out of their comfort zones, which they clearly dont want to do.

Social media will be the death of us.

That said, another Farker in another thread posted a link to an interesting article - (conspiracy) theorizing that the internet (esp. social media sites) is effectively devoid of most humans & being run by bots/AI:

Erin, Allie's 16-year-old cousin, still isn't sure when - or if - she'll get vaccinated. She's nervous about the side effects and wants to "wait and see." In her view, the pandemic has "died down" and she's unfamiliar with the delta variant. Rather than believe what she sees on the news or hears from federal health officials, she says she would "rather read about it and see it myself."

Allie, as you go through life, you'll pick and choose friends that you can relate to and that respect the values and ideals that you do.  When you get to your late 20s, you'll have gone through this cycle enough times that some of your cousins will have become the dumbest people you know.  Erin will be one of these people.

That's a damn fair point... but I think a lot of them lack that much insight into why they do things. Some definitely would.

That's not in the Bible. Maybe God helps those who don't do anything.

You can't convince people to get vaccinated who lack the mental capacity to so much as spell the name of their own state.

You're reading it as (pretty) (white girl), when it's obvious the author meant (pretty white) (girl).  Whiter than "not white" or "kinda white," but not as white as "fully white."

As much as I hate to encourage bad behavior, it wouldn't be the worst idea to give all the unvaccinated a $100 gift card to get the vaccine.  As obstinate as they are, chances are they'll completely sell out their entire worldview for a few bucks.

"I feel like it hasn't been tested enough," says Erin Acey, 16, of the vaccine. Erin is a cousin of Allie's who lives a block away and grew up playing wiffle ball with Allie in the backyard.

And I'm totally sure Erin will wear a mask, in the mean time, to help make sure those around her are safe and to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Erin's parents are also not vaccinated, nor is another cousin, Cara McClure, a hairstylist in nearby Clinton. McClure is 23 and suspicious of conflicting information she's heard about the vaccine.

"I try not to watch the news. I get it from Facebook," says McClure. "I really try not to talk about it at work because it's like politics: You don't talk about politics at work."
