TRUMP’S ONE-HUNDRED-AND-FORTY-THIRD DAY OUT-OF-OFFICE
AND WE ONCE AGAIN HEAR FROM OUR LOCAL POLITICAL JUNKIE WE’LL CALL “CINCY DAVE”
THE THEORY OF MAGNETISM
Today, my dear wife told me about one of the true believers at her work, who went around to all the vaccinated people to try to “prove” the theory that vaccines make people magnetic. He brought a small magnet to work with him and showed everyone that it will stick to them if they have been vaccinated.
Except that it didn’t. By the time he had tried it on many people and it fell off every time, they were all laughing at him. Of course, that didn’t stop him from believing it. The guy has flat-out refused to be vaccinated himself, because, after all, who would want to become magnetic, or maybe even have a microchip injected along with the dangerous vaccine? He has many health problems himself, including diabetes, so he would be at great risk if he would somehow contract Covid, but his belief in Trump and Q override his own well-being.
She also told me that, several weeks ago, when she and a few of her co-workers had a strong reaction to their second shots, the guy was actually happy about it. She had a fever that lasted about one day, requiring her to miss a day of work. I too had a milder reaction to shot #2, but it only required me to miss a night out with my friends, as I was a bit tired.
I guess the spread of misinformation is the price we have to pay to have freedom of speech and freedom of the press. But we really do need a better education system. Too many people grow up to be idiots.
