The French Figured It Out, Why Can’t We?

H/T Scissorhead Jimmy-T

We’ve tried the carrot (lotteries, cash payments, etc.) and it failed to move the needle (groannnnn), and our pals in France have tried the stick and it looks like it worked:

Vaccination passports, as it were, to get into the local pub, movies, stadiums, etc., or wherever it is that they plan their next sedition.

Our anti-vaxxer brethren in Possum Hollar are not bon vivants, but they respond well to jack-booted authoritarians herding them into compliance, so maybe we ought to give this idea a shot?

(I’ll get my hat and coat and see myself out, thanks.)

  4. Because France is an actual nation, not a collection of 50 squabbling states, half grounded in reality and half on extended krokodil/bath salts/meth/PCP benders governed by a federal government that that second half thinks doesn’t actually legitimately rule.

    The country that voluntarily deprived themselves of enormous mounts of goods during WWII and battled through the Great Depression, now cannot get half of their citizenry to take a free vaccine against a dangerous and deadly disease, let alone wear a mask to stem the transmission.

    Well, if the current state of Misery Missouri doesn’t convince them then nothing will. What is it, +99.5% of the hospitalizations for Covid are NONvaccinated meatheads…the hospitals are all full, No Vacancies, thank you. Chicago is within headlight distance as far as Covid plus Delta is concerned.
    The fan can no longer even be seen, what with the sheer universe of shit hurled at it this time.

      I believe it’s 99.5% of hospitalizations are non- and partially– vaccinated. But …

      Madison is effectively back to normal of course we were stabbing and slashing to get into line for the jabs. Probably only a matter of time even in the People’s Republic.

    It’s our turn to own the Cons. How about Handsome Joe mandate that a person has to be vaccinated in order to vote in person. That would get their attention.
