Let’s Kill A Few

Everyday we read about people who have died tragically. It seems to be a way of life for anyone who labels themselves “human.” Humans are responsible for all kinds of violence inflicted upon other humans (non-humans as well, but that’s a topic for another time).

Violence resulting in death. Everyday! It runs the gauntlet of human depravity. All the way from genocide in Africa to home invasion in Ohio. From cartel killings in Mexico to honor killings in India. Too many ways to count.

I have secured my place in line at 6,234,962. My suggestion is that you do the same. It’s an easy process. Just go to the website and fill out all the information as accurately as possible. Especially be clear about where you will be when the time comes for you to receive the vaccination. I’ve been told that there is a verification process, but I don’t know what that might be.

Why secure a place in line? Let me tell you my reasoning: Continue reading
