Hey! A new Randy Rainbow!
Well, the CDC made an announcement Thursday that only the non-vaccinated among us need to wear a mask. Yeah, like that’s going to happen! Those folks aren’t wearing masks now. They have spent most of the last 15 months ignoring science. What would make the CDC believe they would wear masks now?
But the announcement was that those of us who are vaccinated no longer need o wear masks. Call me a skeptic, but with the number of cases exploding in India and most of the rest of the world far from having any kind of control over the virus, my personal view is that the virus has plenty of places and opportunity to mutate to a state that can elude the vaccines. Then that mutated super virus can work its way back to the US. Therefore I will stay masked except when pretty much alone outdoors and in my own house.
We are far from being in a situation where we can throw caution to the wind. We only have around 50% of adults vaccinated which leaves fertile ground for mutations in this country also. The current vaccines are not a 100% shield. For those who do not believe in evolution, watch closely as the coronavirus is evolving daily to continue to thrive. It cares not about our miracle drugs – those are just another hurdle to jump.
As for me I shall remain masked and socially distanced.

Trump, a guy who’s never won the popular vote, twice impeached, rated the worst president ever, serially corrupt, a traitor, rapist, racist, gave the GOP a perfect out on Jan 6. They could’ve easily just turned the page. But instead they said, “Nope, we’ll stick with him.” – David Rothkopf
