It's Time...

It’s time.

I publish this blog every few days and it’s usually not difficult for me to come up with a topic to talk about.

There’s been one topic, however, that I’ve been avoiding because it didn’t seem to be the right time to discuss it.

But it feels like the right time now. With each passing day, the fear, negative rhetoric, draconian rules and threats are escalating and it’s time for me to publicly declare my truth.

I am unvaccinated. There, I said it. I’m unvaccinated, and so is my wife.

If you want to stop reading at this point and unsubscribe, I’ll understand.

But if you wish to keep reading, let me explain.

When Alabama Governor, Kay Ivey, says, “It’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks,” it’s time.

When Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to Obama, and former Chicago mayor, says the unvaccinated should be punished, it’s time.

When Gov. Gavin Newsome (CA) says I am like a drunk driver, it's time.

When I can’t watch TV without being shamed by commercials and PSAs pressuring me to get the vaccine for the sake of humanity, my family and those I love, it’s time.

According to statistics available on July 27, 2021, 49% of Americans are fully vaccinated, 8% are partially vaccinated, and the rest of us -- the “vaccine hesitant” -- make up the remaining 43% of the country. The number of unvaccinated is apparently no longer declining, and things are becoming tense and downright frightening.

I, and people like me, are being called selfish killers and reprobates who only care about themselves and have no regard for fellow human beings. Piers Morgan in his column in the Daily Mail on July 27, 2021, called us “deluded,” “ill-informed” and “complacent lunatics.”

But let me tell my side of the story.

Some of you may remember the swine flu scare of 1976. To briefly summarize what happened, in February of that year, a new form of flu was discovered when it killed a young army soldier. The U.S. Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare announced that an epidemic was expected to hit in the fall and could kill up to one million people. The CDC said it could be even more deadly than the Spanish flu that killed half a million people in 1918. (Sound familiar?) Therefore, the CDC asked Congress for money to vaccinate 80% of the country to avoid this crisis. And Congress, in a rush to protect its constituents, promised a vaccine. This all happened in the spring of 1976 and the National Swine Flu Immunization Program was signed into law in April.

By the time immunizations started in October, the epidemic had yet to materialize, but the vaccine push was still on. Clinics were established across the country; and, like today, the government and the media fanned the flames of fear and panic. However, after only 10 weeks of vaccine distribution and 40 million people vaccinated, 500 cases of the debilitating disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome became attributable to the vaccine and 32 people died. And that was enough to put a halt to the immunization of the population.

Now, here’s what happened to my wife and me.

My mother-in-law, a registered nurse, demanded (in no uncertain terms!) that we get the vaccine. She even gave us her schedule as to when she would be working the "shot clinic" so we could get the shot when she was there. It was a Friday evening after work and we stopped in at the local elementary school basement to get the vaccine. We lined up with dozens of others and shuffled through the queue line to the point where an air gun was used to inject us with the vaccine.

We immediately left the clinic for a weekend camping trip. That night, around midnight, both of us woke up incredibly SICK with raging high fevers and severe respiratory distress. We, two healthy 23-year-olds, were sicker than dogs within hours of the shot. We returned home Monday, but were sick for another two weeks. Neither of us had done any research prior to the injection because there was no information available, other than the official government narrative. We just went along with the crowd, believed the government-induced fear, and did what my mother-in-law wanted us to do.

Given this experience, and what we later learned, we vowed to never do that again until, and UNLESS, we had our questions answered.

Therein lies the rub with our current situation.

We can’t get answers to our questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Questions such as:

What are the real numbers regarding adverse effects, breakthrough cases, and deaths from the vaccine? The CDC's own reporting system VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System) is showing at least 10 times more adverse effects and 30 times more deaths than for any vaccines in previous years. But there is anecdotal evidence that the numbers are MUCH higher. Are you aware that on July 19, 2021, a lawsuit was filed in federal court by an alleged whistleblower claiming the CDC has under-reported the 9,048 deaths (as of July 9th) in the VAERS by a factor of at least 5 and claims that more than 45,000 deaths are not being reported? Is it true? I would like to know.

Why has information about preventative and alternative treatments been suppressed? There are peer-reviewed studies from around the globe showing that therapeutic drugs such as hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and ivermectin are extremely effective in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. But yet, the government prohibited HCQ and ivermectin from being prescribed. WHY? Could it be because, if they HAD officially acknowledged them, not a single dose of vaccine could have been administered under the Emergency Use Authorization? The absence of alternative therapies is required by law for an Emergency Use Authorization to be issued.

And speaking of HCQ, according to this article on the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons website, an non-physician FDA bureaucrat bragged about unilaterally imposing his will on doctors to keep them from prescribing chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to help their patients. This is unprecedented.

Why the censorship by the mainstream media, big tech and government?

The former VP and Chief Science Officer for Pfizer, Dr. Michael Yeadon, has raised serious concerns over the vaccine. Have you heard of him? Due to censorship, I’m guessing not. Dr. Simone Gold, ER physician and Stanford-trained attorney was fired and censored for prescribing, with great clinical success, hydroxychloroquine to her patients that were suffering from Covid-19. She now heads America’s Frontline Doctors, who have been EXTREMELY vocal against the current narrative. How about interviewing Nobel Prize winner Luc Montaignier or virologist and former senior program officer at Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) Geert Vanden Bossche to hear their views? How about Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of mRNA technology, who had his name expunged from Wikipedia for merely questioning the efficacy of giving the vaccine to children?

Nope, the media and big-tech have decided for us that whatever these medical experts have to say is dangerous and not in our best interest.

When you see a panel of experts in their field being censored, de-platformed and de-monetized by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube,, because it “violates community standards,” there is something extremely wrong. Whose community??

Also, who hasn’t seen a post similar to this on Facebook?

Any post that urges vaccine caution, reports a true adverse effect, or is contrary to the “official" narrative is branded with this “fact-check” label--if it hasn’t already been shadow-banned or removed. How is this okay?

How can we “trust the science” when it continually flip-flops?

On July 27, the Director of the CDC, Rochelle Walensky, came out and said that masks now should be worn in public indoor spaces by all Americans REGARDLESS of vaccination status. She goes on to say, "in rare occasions, some vaccinated people infected with a delta variant after vaccination may be contagious and spread the virus to others." But then she also claims that vaccinated people will have to wear masks again to protect themselves from people who opted NOT to take the jab.

Wait...I’m confused, didn’t she just say that vaccinated people must wear masks because THEY can infect others? What’s the point of being vaccinated, if it doesn’t protect you from basically anything? And we won’t even go into Dr. Fauci’s well-documented mixed messages.

SO….now, just because I’m asking questions, I’m being told that I’m too stupid to know what I’m asking and to just shut up and roll up my sleeve. President Biden told me that recently:

So, to President Biden, Dr. Fauci, the CDC, Ms. Psaki, Mr. Zuckerberg and whoever else wants to shame me and blame me … until I get answers, I will NOT be getting the jab.

I can’t speak for the rest of the “vaccine hesitant,” but I believe we all want the same thing-- to live long, healthy lives and to be able to enjoy the company of our families and friends.

Unless we can come together and discuss ALL sides of the issues openly and respectfully, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen soon.

But, just so you know, I am NOT a killer.

I am NOT selfish.

I DO love my family, my neighbors, and my community.

I am NOT an anti-vaxxer.

I have fully accepted the consequences of my sovereign free will in making this decision. If it means never being able to go anywhere again and that I have to stay in my own home, so be it.

That may actually be nirvana because it’s beginning to sound like it won’t be long before I’m rounded up and sent to a re-education camp.

At least I’ll have company, since my wife will be going with me.
