    So, Ed, you resent that freedom?

    Honestly, I have yet to hear even one valid reason to not take the shot.

    And believe me, I ask everyone who tells me they are not getting it.

    The question has led me to information I really didn't want to know.... I have some friends who I have always thought were pretty smart and they are .... But also turn out to be conspiracy nuts ......

    1) The mortality rate in the USA for those that get C-19 is 1.77%. This means that even if you get it you are unlikely to die.

    2) Of the people who have died the overwhelming majority have pre-existing conditions.

    3) 75% of the people that have died are 65 years old or older.

    So, if you are younger and have no pre-existing conditions your risk level is quite low. That right there makes a very compelling argument for many people to skip the shot.

    I'm not advocating skipping, I just find some of the comments of condemnation in this thread "stupid."

    If you don't get the shot you become a vessel for possible mutations. Variants that are not affected by current immunization. If that happens we all go back to duck plucking square one. That is why it's stupid to not get the shot. Duh!

    Like I said. Not one valid reason not to get it.

    Lol...yes, you are right. I know lots of Americans think the way you do....but I get a little sick of so many finding it hard to grasp the whole healthcare for all thing. So many think..."why should I have to pay for some guys cancer treatment with my taxes"...it gets really old.

    I recall an American here who was indignant to be on the receiving end of the slur "yankee''. Don't remember who.
    In order to slur properly, is this map a good guide?
