I'm tired of this frog s*** from all sides. I can't trust anything I hear from anyone. Everyone with an opinion has hand picked "facts" to make their argument or defense and these "facts" change weekly. I take faith knowing that His ultimate plan can never be changed by any act of man.

Mocking conspiracy theories is one thing, but what about people who have real concerns about how the scientific community, corporations, and government have exploited the situation? Can one not be concerned over the loss of freedoms without being written off as a conspiracy theorist?

I think COVID is real, and very dangerous to some people, and yet I distrust Fauci, not because of a conspiracy but because of what he has said. And that goes for pretty much any other experts in the scientific community who want to dictate how we should live while also believing boys can be girls, that guns and racism are a public health threats, and that abortion is health care.

I think that masking and social distancing have some kind of effect in preventing the spread, maybe not as much as others, but I do see it, and yet I think the mandates are more theater than science and often an overreach and abuse of power.

I think vaccines are capable in slowing the spread, and yet I don't want to inject myself with something that was rushed and I have qualms about the mRNA tech to the point that I don't want to get a vaccine.

I don't think the virus was created in order to remove liberties or create a new world order or to persecute Christians, and yet I do see steps taken in all of those directions, with nary anything to stop them from happening, and using COVID as the catalyst for it.

I also think liberty is more important than COVID restrictions which leads me to stand on certain principles that dissent from popular opinion. I'm for anyone who wants to get vaxed or mask up. I'm not for forcing others to do it against their will.

Is any of that considered a conspiracy theory?

This is pretty much my position. I believe the thing exists and is killing people, but am too sketched out by the institutional response to fully endorse what’s being pedaled as the “appropriate” response by most of the people in my life. And that the cure is, in many ways, far worse than the disease. That most people/organizations are optimizing for avoiding the “bad PR” from being blamed for spreading/super-spreading than actually doing no harm. I happen to have a social network of mostly the type of people that will gobble this stuff up as it’s packaged on traditional left media, but am lucky enough to have a small network of close friends that are really “in the middle” as you are. Just ashamed of the lack of nuance, the lack of conversation around benefits relative to costs, and who may or may not get stuck, but certainly not with the third grader level boasting of those who proudly display their vax cert as an “I voted” sticker.

Are we creating second class citizens?

Want That Job Offer? A Covid-19 Vaccine Is Now Required.
At the New York restaurant Eleven Madison Park, a recent job posting for a sommelier lists a string of necessary skills, including exceptional wine knowledge and an ability to lift 50 pounds. The last requirement on the list: a Covid-19 vaccination.

As the U.S. job market heats up, positions operating machines in Louisville, Ky., working in offices in Houston and waiting on diners in Manhattan now require that candidates be vaccinated—or be willing to get their Covid-19 shot within 30 days of hire.

.......

The Houston Methodist Hospital network is mandating vaccines for both existing employees and new hires, barring an exemption. Those who fail to comply will at first be suspended without pay, and later terminated, a hospital spokeswoman says. Houston Methodist believes employee vaccinations are essential to keeping patients safe.

Got my second dose of Moderna on Saturday. Compounded the impact by helping my friend move that morning and eating sketchy room-temperature Chinese food for lunch. Had the chills a bit that night, but was able to wake up (on not enough sleep) to play bass at church for 2 services Sunday. Crashed out for a nap afterwards (and I never nap), but felt fine after that. Feeling like a million bucks today with just a slightly sore shoulder.

In 2 weeks I should be at peak immunity. Glad I did it.
