To the editor:

I always wanted to get my medical advice from that faux scientist with a journalism degree, Mark Guerringue.

Please Mark, tell everyone again they should be taking an experimental, complicated vaccine medicine. I thought it was "my body, my choice" for you abortion people. Oh yeah, only when it comes to killing unborn babies. Selective deaths are totally fine, but what the contradictor of copy won't tell you, many more children have died from the flu than COVID each of the past 5 years. While the liberty-hating government offices on Seavey Street lecture us about their hypocritical concern on public safety, our chaotic, open Southern border is being overrun with COVID-infested illegals, historic levels of fentanyl, dangerous criminals, etc and not one word from the Sun czar of safety.

While Dr. Guerringue applies his enormous social pressure, i wonder if he will release his compelling evidence of the long-term effects of the vaccine and mask-wearing? Doesn't matter, he pretends everyone's health and risk potential is exactly the same. Shut up and get the shot says the Surgeon General of publishing.

The two weeks to flatten the curve is now 18 months of control with no end in sight. Surely, a man that interned with Jonas Salk and Joseph Pulitzer can tell us what "temporary inconvenience" means?

Sadly Dr. Guerringue wasn't able to attain a third degree in history or he wouldn't disparage the millions of people who shed blood and life for freedom and liberty. As Ben Franklin said, "Those who give up essential liberty to purchase a little safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

We and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet than live on our knees" — Franklin Roosevelt

Ben Franklin lost his four year old son to smallpox and later wrote, "In 1736 I lost one of my Sons, a fine boy of Four years old, taken by the Small Pox in the common way. I long regretted that I had not given it to him by inoculation, which I mention for the Sake of parents, who omit that Operation on the Supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a Child died under it." And, of course, FDR was crippled by polio. (As was one of my aunts by the way.) The American public fully embraced the polio vaccination. It is sadly ironic that Day chooses to quote Franklin and Roosevelt; we do not have to guess how they would feel about the current (FDA approved) vaccination and the irrational resistance in the name of "freedom".
