COVID ‘Passport’ Could Become a Reality in CT
CT Governor Ned Lamont was a guest on an NPR talk show and according to the Patch, he and his administration are considering a "coronavirus passport" in CT. Lamont had this to say:
These are the ways that people are beginning to think about the nature of a vaccination passport, or vaccination authentication, we've got to make sure we do it respecting civil liberties and people's privacy, but I think you are going to see a lot of innovative ideas coming out of it.
It will give a lot more people an incentive to get vaccinated. If you are a white male Republican and you feel a little grumpy about getting vaccinated, maybe NASCAR says you've got to be vaccinated to come in and see a race.
If you are wondering what a "coronavirus passport" is, it's exactly what it sounds like. It's a formal, unified ID card, badge or piece paperwork from the State that officially indicates that you have been vaccinated.
The Governor has not made a final decision on the passports, but says it's something he "was going to look at."
The following is an editorial:
That's your Governor CT. Let me share that again in case you missed it, "If you are a white male Republican and you feel a little grumpy about getting vaccinated, maybe NASCAR says you've got to be vaccinated to come in and see a race."
He's got you all figured out. You would think his Harvard education would have paid more dividends. Maybe he would have learned there, that your not supposed to reduce people to their race and a stereotype. Guess not.
If you think that's hypocritical coming from me I should remind you of a few things:
- You don't know me.
- I'm not running the State of CT, I'm paid to make jokes.
I could rundown the many parts of what he said there, that are arrogant and ignorant but I don't need to, you can see it, and I unlike Ned Lamont, I don't think you are stupid.
P.S. I called this, way before the vaccine was even ready. I said last year, as sure as I am sitting here, you will eventually have to show a card or some form of I.D. proving you were vaccinated to move around.
