Trump never made the jab mandatory, that's a huge thing.
I know what you mean about being lonely though - I have a lot of based friends, but they think that I am a conspiracy theorist at the same time. My blood relatives live in WA so they are woke or worried about my un-woke-ness, I hope they will be okay for the jabs and boosters that they got.
In 5-10 years, we'll all look back and see how everything was so obvious, but right now we just have to live as best as we can. I've been living like we're in WWIII for the past 2 years, while my woke sister has been having fun and going on vacations all over the world.
I am trying to slowly get back doing things and having fun again, the the way I was before 2020, but with open eyes this time, hope this helps.
Yes, eastern WA is awesome, I have one based cousin over there. My sister in western WA is a teacher, woke, very liberal. I don't really want to go there but I have to see my 93-year-old mom, haven't seen her since 2019.
Definitely going to avoid crowds, unfortunately my mom and sis & family are all vaxed and boosted 😢 they seem to be okay, but do you think I should take some ivermectin for them as well (and would that even help)? And is there still that crazy shortage going on?
Panera Bread is just horrible - waaaaay overpriced less-than-mediocre food.
