According to the ACLU:

Far from compromising civil liberties, vaccine mandates actually further civil liberties.  They protect the most vulnerable among us, including people with disabilities and fragile immune systems, children too young to be vaccinated and communities of color hit hard by the disease.

Vaccine requirements also safeguard those whose work involves regular exposure to the public, like teachers, doctors and nurses, bus drivers and grocery store employees. And by inoculating people from the disease’s worst effects, the vaccines offer the promise of restoring to all of us our most basic liberties, eventually allowing us to return safely to life as we knew it, in schools and at houses of worship and political meetings, not to mention at restaurants, bars, and gatherings with family and friends.

Got D3 and Zn? (August 9, 2021)

Posted in Covid / Coronavirus, Vaccine on August 9, 2021 by e-commentary.org

Letter To The Editor

. . .

Vaccines are not enough.  Take care of yourself.  Vitamin D3 and Zinc sustain one’s immune system.  Discuss with your health care provider taking, say, 3000 ius of Vitamin D3 and 30 mg of Zinc regularly along with a balanced diet and vigorous exercise after a night of restful sleep.  Take Zn with a hint of copper (Cu) and an ionophore to get the Zinc into your cells!

We should create a contest to craft a catchy slogan like the “slip, slop, slap and wrap” campaign in Australia that encourages kids and adults to protect themselves against the sun and skin cancer.  However, northern folks need to address a lack of sun and thus a lack of vitamin D3.  For inspiration, think of the catchy first poem recited by some attentive seven year olds to their occasionally inattentive parents:  “Click It or Ticket”.  How about:  “Got D ‘n’ Z?”

. . .

K          “A devoted masker in late January of 2020 no longer shares the same devotion in early June of 2021.  Much about the mRNA vaccines is troubling, very troubling.  Now that the government mask mandates are relaxed, public places are relaxing their requirements and letting individuals who self-identify as vaccinated to enter without sporting a mask.  However, my research suggests that many if not most individuals who have not had a vaccine are strolling insouciantly if not defiantly into public places without a mask.”    

J          “I believe in masks.  I believe in mandatory mask requirements.  I believe in mandatory mRNA vaccines.”

RIP: 2020: Vestigial Democracy; 2021: Free Speech (March 1, 2021)

Posted in Covid / Coronavirus, Elections, First Amendment on March 1, 2021 by e-commentary.org

. . .

K          “At the end of the year, they scroll through pictures of folks we lost in the past year.  In 2020, the year of the Virus, we may have lost ‘Vestigial Democracy’ and in 2021, the year of the Vaccine, we have already lost ‘Free Speech’ without recognizing either loss.  We are off to a terrible start.”

J          “I disagree about the lost democracy.  It was clean or clean enough for me in the real world of dirty politics.  Free speech is another thing.  The First Amendment protects against government intrusion, but now the ‘governments’ are private sector Behemoths who are beyond regulation.  However, I am not totally against bans on speech that is akin to yelling ‘fire’ in a crowded theater.”

K          “These private sector bans will come to haunt us.”
