Thankful Thursday

I am thankful we have our Farm.

I am thankful for all the animals.
Food ones, pets, working animals.
All of them.

I am thankful that our animals have no idea of what’s going on out in the world.
I am thankful that it will stay that way.

I am thankful that we can grow our own food.
I am thankful that we can grow *a lot* of our own.
And that we can preserve it for winter.
And the the bulk of our veggies come from heirloom plants that I can save seeds from.

The world…
It’s getting uglier out there.
I read a FB post today where a local business, a computer repair guy, is literally demanding people show him proof of their c-19 shot in order for him to render services.
Anyone who isn’t willing to prove they’re had the shot, or show proof from their doctor that they can’t have it, will not be able to use his services.

My head is reeling from this.
People are congratulating him, saying it’s the “right and responsible” thing to do.
Did I not say medical discrimination was coming?
And who the eff does some computer tech guy think he is that he’s demanding access to personal medical records??

But this is what we’ve become.
The govt fosters this attitude with their pushing of shot passports to travel and attend events.
It won’t be long before it’s to work, to get health care, to buy groceries.
And anyone who might be hesitant or flat out can’t get it is discriminated against.
Think I’m wrong?
Again, people are *praising* this guy for medical discrimination.

At no time in history when humans have set a random group of people apart as “other” and “undesirable” has it ever turned out well.
Not.
Once.

We are on the brink of it happening again.
Whether people want to admit it, choose to see it, or not.

And I am grateful that, in the very least, I can take care of my family.
For how long?
I don’t know.

    I’m seeing the same thing your are. I saw a commercial yesterday that everyone needs to get vaccinated so we can end Covid. If one person doesn’t get vaccinated then Covid will never go away.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Christine. ♥

      Right?
      Like somehow that 1 person will be responsible for all of it.
      lol

      I guess we’ll find out, because there’s 3 here that I know won’t be getting it.
      Just blame us.
      😂😂😂

    We feel that the govt is pushing this and it is just the first of a long slippery slope that will end badly for this once great country. The first 200 were great but I feel the last 100 and we will be a sad footnote of history. I am only glad I have no kids. Sad

      I am thankful my daughter is grown and has no interest in having kids of her own.
      I fear this world kids are being born into.
      I guess every generation says that though, but this time around it really seems like we’re happy to keep our eyes shut to the slippery slope we’re hurtling down.
      It’s a shame.
      We can care about others without demeaning and dehumanizing each other.

    Way down here in Florida, as soon as enough had natural immunity or vaccines that the hospitals were not overflowing, the Governor ended all covid restrictions and made it illegal to base a business service on if people had been vaccinated. The cruise ships are seriously threatening to leave the state over it. They are a huge industry here but have also had to pay for the ramifications of having a covid outbreak on board.

      I am honestly surprised how fast we’ve gone from “we’re all in this together” to “do as you’re told…or else.”
      Surprised and more than a little saddened.

    I just read a blog post from someone in California. Mask mandates are supposed to end on June 15. In all the comments, people were saying they were going to wear masks anyway, because other people might be lying about having the jab. All of these people have had the jab themselves already.

    It just blows my mind.

    I am so thankful to be living on a farm now, too!!

      July 1st in Minnesota, all mandates are ending, according to their govt. And yeah, I don’t get the idea of wearing the mask still, worrying about who might not have the shot.
      If one has their shots, they’re protected right?
      So what difference if someone else doesn’t?
      But it’s that division that’s been fostered.
      I really don’t know how we as a society are going to recover from this.
      The trauma is going to last for years.

      I can’t imagine if we hadn’t made this move!
      Oh my…if we were stuck in the city now?
      I don’t even know what we’d do…
