It’s That Easy

Someone texted me to ask how I was doing a few days ago. Dodging the omicron variant was my reply. It has hit close to home. 

It was a little over a year ago, December 22, 2020, to be exact, when Gov. Greg Abbott was one of the first to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. He said right after getting the jab, “it’s that easy.” That was exactly a year and one week ago. It is that easy, but Abbott never really encouraged Texans to do so.   Instead, he fought the aggressive effort to get folks vaccinated.

Here we are. We are back to long testing lines and places like CVS and Walgreens are limiting how many COVID-19 testing kits you can buy. All because folks won’t get vaccinated. 

We ended 2020 with the vaccine getting rolled out.  Thanks to GOP governors like Abbott, we are still swamped with the COVID-19 as we end 2021. 

Since the start of the pandemic in March of 2020, I don’t think I have ever tried to predict when things would return to normal. We have way too many arseholes in key positions who just won’t follow the science. Who knows if we will ever get through this.
