    I would be real careful with that. Plays a part, maybe, but that’s as far as I would go.

    The three hardcore Trumpsters in my immediate circle who also are not getting vaccine for Covid are smart and/or well educated. One has a PhD in the sciences from an
    Ivy, one has a master’s degree plus 80 hours in the sciences, and the other has a 4 year degree and high IQ.

    Then there are the Trump voters I know who have advanced degrees but also got Covid vaccine.

    I don't know about Covid, but it certainly is the case with climate change beliefs.

    I'm still waiting for the truth on UFOs.

    EDIT: I could tell anecdotal stories about phd's I"ve know who couldn't change the proverbial hubcap, but I don't think those represent the group as a whole.

    Not saying this is right or wrong, but I've met many people with all levels of educational degrees that have very little - if any - common sense or intelligence beyond "book learning".

    I've come to the conclusion that each person is unique unto themself.

    Actually, it is a tough physical activity. I’m not sure I would call it a “sport.”

    while so much of the action is theatrical, there are real injuries and people really do get beat up.

    We do already mandate vaccines you know - for public school, and the military, and a lot of other careers - with varied options for exemptions. In some case none - it’s if you want this job, you take this shot.

    No way was my republican state going to let my unchurched self announce that I had a sincerely held religious belief that my kids should not be vaccinated and send them to public school. I know, because they never asked for my oldest child’s records. And when they realized they didn’t have them, they told me I had to come get them and not bring them back without vaccination records. I negotiated. I gave them dates over the phone and they gave me four days to get official records.

    Even kids who have religious or medical exemptions have to stay home if there is an outbreak.
    So fine - your kid is an exception. Keep them home. You are an exception, welcome to the wonderful world of telecommuting, video streamed entertainment, online shopping, and curbside pick up.

    Yes, I realize. I used to be quite the fan. My favorite way back when was Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. LOL.

    Completely agree. The individual is “the smallest minority.” It gets dumber from there.

    I’ve also met many people with advanced degrees who betrayed scant evidence of much book learning as well. Prior to Covid, most of the anti-vaxxers I was aware of were of the affluent, educated classes.

    I still think anyone using this virus as a way of exhibiting their tribal affiliation is foolishness. I wish they’d go back to NPR tote bags or 2nd Amendment bumper stickers as gang colors.

    Sort of agree, as I do love the easy identification provided by the red MAGA hats, shirts, etc.
