I had some things I wanted to say in another thread I made about the vaccines being used as social currency. They would be more appropriate in the mud pit so here we go

So, the MSM has been talking about keeping vaccine cards laminated and holding on to them as a form of "social currency." www.cnn.com...


While plans to establish standardized vaccination proof are still being developed, many are holding to their Covid-19 vaccine cards as a potential form of social currency.


That alone isn't all that alarming--what's alarming is the casual tone. They can just go ahead and say stuff like this like they're telling you the earth is round. The readers are already conditioned. Forbes talks about vaccine passports and the controversy here: www.forbes.com...



The sentiment was shared by Dr. David Drew Pinsky (@drdrew), who called for everyone to get vaccinated but remained an opponent of any form of government sanctioned passport. He wrote, "These vaccine passports segregate people and strip them of their freedom to travel internationally. Vaccinations are important, and I encourage everyone to get the Covid vaccine, but how would you feel if international travel also required other vaccinations?"


I tend to agree with Dr. Drew. Yeah sure some vaccines are already required for international travel, but that's not what this is about. Going to a restaurant isn't international travel. Going bowling. A bar. Whatever.
What have we got here
Health: politicized. Look at all these studies emphasizing how "The right" is more likely to refuse the vaccine. Refusing it, per MSM, is "bad" like everything else the right does, right? So those darn righties are gonna make everyone sick because they won't take their social currency jab.
Righties just listen to social media and are brainwashed, according to the "other side" of the forbes article:



For many it is still an issue where the rallying cry is "freedom," which is why hashtags for vaccine passports have trended with holocaust and fascism. "The vaccine passport to them symbolizes government overreach," said Sterling. "They've also been conditioned – partly by social media – to reflexively reject all things having to do with taking Covid seriously. Social media is where these conspiracies have been disseminated and amplified."


Some of the political BS, making it obvious (so the right is brainwashed by social media huh? What about these people? What do you call this and why was this even necessary?):
www.axios.com...



By the numbers: 41% of Republicans say they don't plan to get a vaccine if it's available to them. Only 33% say they do plan to get vaccinated.

70% of Democrats and a plurality of independents (47%) say they plan to get vaccinated.

White Americans are now less likely than Black and Latino Americans to say they plan to get the vaccine.




The bottom line: The virus doesn't care about politics, and it certainly won't confine itself to states with the largest unvaccinated populations. High rates of vaccine hesitancy among any group threatens our collective progress against the pandemic, meaning that it's just as important to reach white Republicans as it is to reach other hesitant groups.



I am pro-vaccine in the traditional sense.
I am anti social-currency.
This isn't about health anymore.

A vaccine is designed to protect people. This one probably might be, too, and as the data builds up the truth will appear. However, now, just like virus itself, the vaccine has become a political weapon.

If they didn't politicize it I'd be way more eager to get the jab. But something just doesn't add up here. I am not a liberal, nor a republican, nor am I on social media at all apart from ATS which I haven't been on much here lately so sorry if this is all old hat. Maybe this was better for the rant room.

All I'm saying is something just doesn't feel right and I think a lot of people on ATS are seeing it too.

Well I think it boils down to Baby Boomers raising bunghole kids with their helicopter parenting, who begat X-Y and Millennial kids with bulldozer parenting.

This all leads to peeps having an endless supply of isms and nobody to push back, cuz all those helicopter/bulldozer babies are in places to influence the next generations.

So now, they look to political isms to fix their mental isms. IE, Socialism will fix my LGTBQIAT+-ism.

Or, that may not be it at all.

keeping vaccine cards laminated

I read that laminating vaccine is a mistake. They will be adding boosters and mutation vaccines later and you need to be able to have that notated on the card.

The polio vaccine was not 100% effective. It was linked to 10 deaths and caused 40K additional cases of polio (Cutter vaccine) along with other ailments. The report was not made public for some time.

The end did justify the means but try explaining that to the parents who lost their child to the vaccine or had their child infected with polio. There are similar problems with this vaccine and we have a serious problem with the media burying these problems. They refuse to report on complications with the vaccine which should be a crime. We need to know who should not take the vaccine. It could save someone's life and that is the crux of it; controlling information and lying to people. This thing is an experimental on people right now. Nothing more. We need real-time reporting on FACTS.

They could have an area on the card where it gets punched for every booster shot. Kinda like a coffee card at a gas station.

Get 6 shots, and your seventh one is free!

It's kind of sad. All it took was a year of a box telling people 'thousands of people are being infected every day...oh my God be afraid be very afraid.'

And now, people are clamouring to be a Guinea pig in a mass experiment because the box told them if they do they're allowed to stop being afraid...maybe...possibly...we'll see.

If it was just the one big (TV) box, it wouldn't have been quite so effective. What made it so easy is that information was also continuously coming out of the medium box and small handheld boxes also.

A box is a box, that you thought TV was the box i was referring to just betrays your age....


I was talking about that little box that's become an extension of most people's brains in our modern age.

I'm not young, so you got that right. Regardless of which box you were referring to, I'm still saying that the reason it was so effective, is because of the continuous stream of the same stuff spewing out of each of the 3 main boxes. It was the combination that made it work so good.

Not only that, but the ability to interact with others on their boxes...soon the boxes will be making more boxes and we will be fully boxed in......doesn't sound good...

I guess I'm old... definitely thinking TV.

That said, everything new is greeted with skeptics. We haven't had a situation like what has been going on the past year with the kind of (toxic) technology available. The panic could be localized in the past, now its out for the world to feel. Feel thankful to the people receiving the vaccine if you aren't into taking it. They will let you know how they feel in the future.

I call it the Curse of the Glowing Rectangles.

For a lot of people, the internet is their life. It all goes back to "What's on the glowing rectangle this minute? Who's gonna tell me how to feel and what to do today? What am I supposed to be offended by this morning? Which of my family members should I unfriend on a social media platform because of their political opinions? How many people have validated my selfie? How many people agree with me?" it goes on and on as the little numbers next to those pretty glowing icons on the glowing rectangles populate with notifications on what they should think next.


a reply to: Skooter_NB

Yeah you said that well. Toxic technology and how it's abused is a big problem.

Ok, it's just in, new articles:
fortune.com...
www.wbur.org...


www.foxnews.com...



"Let me be very clear on this. I know there's been lots of questions," Psaki said during the press briefing Tuesday. "The government is not now, nor will we be, supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential." Psaki went on to say that "there will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential."

Looks like they're backing off a little. They're seeing how high they can make people jump before it costs them some seats, I'd imagine.
Don't let your guard down yet. Remember, states, businesses etc have their own ideas.



"As these tools are being considered by the private and non-private sectors, our interest is very simple from the federal government," Psaki continued. "Which is, Americans' privacy and rights should be protected. And so that these systems are not used against people unfairly." President Biden's chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci this week also said that the government will not mandate vaccine passports for travelers or businesses after the pandemic is over. "I doubt that the federal government will be the main mover of a vaccine passport concept," Dr. Anthony Fauci, who also serves as President Biden's chief medical adviser, told the Politico Dispatch podcast on Monday. "They may be involved in making sure things are done fairly and equitably, but I doubt if the federal government is going to be the leading element of that," he added.


Interesting.

ETA this next quote from Fauci, echoing my guess about businesses etc


Still, some private businesses and organizations may look at developing ways to confirm that someone is vaccinated. Fauci spoke to this during his appearance on the Politico Dispatch podcast, noting that businesses or schools may require them to enter their buildings. "I'm not saying that they should or that they would, but I'm saying you could foresee how an independent entity might say, 'well, we can't be dealing with you unless we know you're vaccinated,' but it's not going to be mandated from the federal government," he said.

This has been coming for al one time, ever since they started trying to require vaccines for going to school.

I'm old school. I don't need the chicken pox vaccine because I had the chicken pox when I was a kid and have lifelong immunity. Same for measles, had them too.

For this garbage - I'll offer to simply be exposed to the virus and get my 'vaxx' naturally, but I'll never take the jab voluntarily, they'll have to hold me down and do it forcefully.
