Honestly, I’m done with covid. I’ve done all I can do, the rest is in God’s hands. Come at me telling me about how I don’t care about anyone but myself, x y and z. I quarantined, masked, vaxxed. What else can I do? I’m going to start living life like it’s 2019 again.

It’s always hilarious to me when people equate wearing masks as living in fear. I don’t live in fear of skin cancer but I put sunscreen on when I’m gonna be in the sun. I don’t live in fear of dying in a car accident but I wear my seatbelt when I’m driving. Why does taking precautions mean that people are fearful?

likesmarthelpfulfunny

That's a terrible analogy. Masks are different and way more intrusive

Is it fear when you remember the hum of the cold stores set up as temporary morgues because the hospitals were overrun? Or when you put on a mask to help protect a friend’s kid who can’t get the vaccine yet?

I think we are all tired. But living in fear is very different from knowing how to manage your risks — which is also very different from denying that any change is necessary.

+ all the studies that show kids are way behind and have had huge mental health and developmental problems as a result of these ridiculous lockdowns.

Just to clarify - I’ve been done with it. I’m just seeing all this mask stuff on the news and delta variant this and vaccine that. Who cares? We can’t live in fear forever. Everything in life has risks. Let’s get back to it.

Lol - Just had a baby and tested positive at the hospital and none of the above was recommended. They actually recommended the baby is best to stay with me because the best milk would be the best protection against it. Oh and since my husband was already exposed he only had to stay in my room instead of being able to go in and out.

In NC we’ve been living normally since fall of last year.

Fauci is talking out of his ass because he funded gain of function. In 2017 he allowed the NIH to fund these programs. He speaks data that suit his agenda. Don’t believe me look it up.

Vax reduces chance of infection but no evidence that it reduces transmission

People who got vaccinated with experimental liquids are falling ill and transmitting virus - what's your point about? Those not vaccinated are cautious about their lives. I've got covid and was way better than my relative of similar age post vaccination. All that BS that if one is vaccinated then no longer dangerous can well fit to public media agenda.

I see a lot of selfish responses in this post from people who believe this is binary - vaccinated vs unvaccinated. There are vulnerable children at risk for whom the vaccines are not available yet. In many states the governors have decided that children’s lives don’t matter enough to have them wear masks. The least we can do as responsible adults and role models is protect the vulnerable. It’s one thing to have a vendetta against the idiots that opt to be unvaccinated but it’s another to also risk the lives (and other long term impacts from Covid) for the kids. Shame on you!

Flu season typically leads to 50-200 kids dead. 500-1000 die due to car accidents with 100K injured per year. A million kids world wide due to pneumonia.

If all of the unvaccinated people in this country kill themselves off at this point, I do not care. That will leave fewer of these idiots to vote in the next election. Sorry but absolutely not sorry. Play stupid games and win stupid prizes.

I got a vaccine for the benefit of other people. Obviously I don't care if I get Covid or not. Pretty sure I already had it anyway. Now apparently that's not enough and I have to keep wearing a mask anyway. Why would anyone get vaccinated if it doesn't free them from wearing a mask?
