There are many reasons why I love the Cat but perhaps the most important is that we have a forum where we can engage in robust and vociferous disagreements.
Here on the Cat there’s been a lot of debate about whether “to jab” or “not to jab”. Whilst it’s a personal decision and I don’t care either way, let me begin by saying that I have the utmost respect for those who choose to be jabbed and the utmost respect for those who choose not to be jabbed. However, I decided to get the jab and I received my first AZ jab back in mid-August. I get the second jab in late October. As many of you know I was, until recently, very much in the camp of the anti-jab….not because I’m an anti-vaxxer (I’m not, I have the flu shot every year) and not because I don’t believe the virus is real (it is) but because I’ve never bought into the hysteria of Covid and its accompanying porn and I’ve never been scared of the virus. I have worried about my elderly parents contracting the virus but mercifully they have been okay. I’ve watched in disbelief and incredulity how, over the last eighteen months, governments, health bureaucrats and the MSM have pushed lies, distorted truth, deliberately spread fear and forced state dictates on citizens, all reminiscent of fascism. Those of you who know me know that I’ve never bought into the hysteria and I still don’t buy into it. So, it begs the question, why have I succumbed?
Since having the jab there’s a big part of me that feels I’ve capitulated to hysteria and fear. I’m angry that I’ve joined the masses and that I’ve given into Gladys, Scummo and tyranny. But there are some important reasons why I’ve succumbed. Firstly, I did it so that we can get the economy open. This situation cannot continue. I have a special dispensation to work in our office here in Sydney and every morning I get on the bus and I see the forlorn state of this city, the businesses shut, the streets empty and I feel utterly depressed. Secondly, my elderly father lives in Perth and I need to visit him. Western Australia is now a one-party state and ruled by madman called Daddy McClown and in order to visit my father I will need to be vaccinated. I remain opposed to vaccine passports within Australia but as Jupes wrote yesterday here on the Cat,
vaccine passports are coming. The process has already started. If you want to travel in future, you will need one.
Please understand my unhappiness at succumbing to this awful situation. I’m angry and I’ll register my anger when I next vote, it’ll be adios Scummo, Gladys and the Liberals. I’m furious about what’s happened to this country. I will always respect those who choose not to be jabbed but as Jupes wrote so eloquently yesterday,
I have faced the fact that we anti-vaccers have lost and have joined the ranks of the weak and gullible.
Me too Jupes.
