Barb Bartolovich was an 82-year-old grandmother who enjoyed playing cards. And as a cancer survivor, with a compromised immune system, she took precautionary measures against taking COVID seriously. She was vaccinated. And when she was invited for a card game, she only attended after she was assured all other players were also vaccinated.

But according to her grandfather, Lauren Nash, one of the players not only had COVID, but knew they had it after a positive test. Tragic, Bartolovich fongen COVID-19, was hospitalized, ventilated, and died on December 21, just before Christmas.

Most of us would not have heard of Barb Bartolovich, but for her family she was loving and important. Nash described her grandmother as a great personality, who loved her husband Frank and was with family.

“She was so fancy. It’s kind of funny now that I look back on it because she had chunks on. She was just everything to everyone. Like everyone says, if you could Barb, you were in love. They was taken too soon. “

Now, Lauren, in honor of her grandmother, you ask. Are you sick with symptoms of COVID-19? Have you tested positive for COVID-19? If so, she says please take it seriously. Avoid others out of love. Stop the spread of a proven deadly virus.

“It’s not worth it. It’s not worth knowing that you hurt someone, hurt someone potentially, or killed someone because you want to go out and have fun. I’m just horrible about where we are and what it happens that we do not take into account the lives of the people. “

I think if you asked Americans if they thought they were selfish or not, most of them would say they were not. And yet tens of millions remain unvaccinated, without the intention of wearing a mask or social distance. Being unvaccinated, in the absence of a valid medical reason, shows a lack of empathy. Do not take precautionary measures against the spread of COVID while going to work, to bars and restaurants, to religious services and shops, et al. reveals a complete lack of care for your fellow citizens.

I also think that if you asked the unvaccinated if they were patriots, they would claim they were. But patriotism does not demand your personal freedoms and individual freedoms. Patriotism does something to keep your country safe and bigger. During a war against a fatal pandemic, a patriot is incarcerated. It’s one answer to the question JFK said Americans need to ask themselves, “Don’t ask what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

But fat chance conservatives would trouble themselves by considering what they could do for their country. These people believe that their religion should be the religion of everyone. And their moral code should be the moral code of everyone. They do not believe in compromise on gun laws or a woman’s right to choose. It’s their way or the highway. Liberals are not without their faults. But when liberals fail, they fail in trying to address the needs of the oppressed – the poor, minorities, immigrants and citizens who do not fit the hetero-normal, beginner mold.

Conservatives claim to be on the side of law and order. But not a moment later they run the streets and spread disease and death. Where does murder by COVID fit into their moral code?

Conservative politicians always say they are doing what they do for the “American people.” But the first thing the American people want is to stay alive. So maybe these right gum flaps can work on that. Or just keep the breed quiet.
