Morning Line- David Poile

"I can't wait till we all get the vaccine. "Get a shot ... and get this to be a safer world for all of us. But it's a worry."

"I worry about it every day. "We show up here every morning to get tested, and every morning I get the results from the previous day and it's like, I come in with my fingers crossed because I don't think anybody knows exactly enough about where you get this."

-David Poile, GM of the Nashville Predators.  More by Paul Skrbina of the Tennesseaon including Poile is a bit puzzled by the fine the Washington Capitals received.

If elderly folks are the most vulnerable, they should come first.

Instead the CDC wanted to gratuitously sacrifice the lives of elderly
Americans of all identities by making them wait behind younger, healthier
people for vaccines. Solely to make an ideological statement because they
think the wrong racial group(s) are overrepresented among the most vulnerable, elderly Americans. Even after a few brave journalists raised the alarm they are pushing people between 65-75 behind younger, less vulnerable people.
Yascha Mounk who wrote the above article is a moderately left of center journalist and writer. The psychopath at the CDC for pushed for this insane policy said she thought it would only cost a “trivial” number of elderly people’s lives so she felt free to virtue signal for no practical benefit.

So if David Poile is still wondering when older people can get vaccines, here’s part of the reason why. The article above is jaw-dropping. You can’t make this sh!t up.

Lefty 30.. I am old enough to qualify for the vaccine, over 65, and will be getting one once I don’t have to wait in line. I wait in line for absolutely.nothing.ever.

That said, I have absolutely no problem with younger people having access to the vaccine. The person who gets “my” shots may potentially be a superspreader. I have the luxury of not leaving home for a week or two, if I choose. And to be damn sure, nobody is coming in my house.

Yeah, it sucks sometime, but in the overall picture, my lifestyle, and that of many(but not all) retirement age people put me at a low risk to contract or transmit the virus.

I am also very glad to not be in the position to decide of how to “split the baby”! Where is King Solomon when you need him:-)
