Why My Son is Unvaccinated
Since I’m spending this week vacationing with my family in Newport Beach, I thought I’d talk to my son Cameron and let him do a little ranting.
Cameron is 43. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two little girls, ages 3 and 5.
His wife works full-time as a home loan processor and he has one of the toughest jobs in the world – stay-at-home dad.
That means for the last 15 months Cameron has been the parent who’s had to deal the most with the unpredictable craziness of California’s oppressive and unpredictable war on COVID-19.
He was the one who went to his daughter’s swimming lesson and had to watch the instructor stand in the pool wearing a mask.
“I wondered if it was like waterboarding yourself,” Cameron joked a few hours before Los Angeles County announced on Thursday that because of the recent rise in COVID cases — not deaths or hospitalizations — everyone must again wear masks in indoor public spaces — no matter what their vaccination status is.
Cameron has never been a fan of mandatory face masks — to say the least.
He's no Dr. Anthony Fauci, but he knows forcing school kids to wear bacteria-laden masks six hours a day in class and during recess not only defies common sense, it makes kids sick.
Cameron knows a lot of people – old and young, white and black, Latino and Asian – and he knows those who got hit hard by COVID and who didn’t.
“I know a 95-year-old who got COVID and nothing happened. My wife’s mother’s boyfriend was on chemo and got COVID and he’s fine."
