I had an neat lady that I went to high school with send me an idea for this one, and gave me a rather interesting angle on it. So, Maggie, thanks so much for the idea, and miss seeing all you guys from AHS!
OK…Joe Biden wants all employers with 100 employees or more to require their employees to get vaccinated fully or face weekly testing. Why? Simple. He made a campaign promise that he can’t keep. And so, he’s been out there trying to get the CDC to issue mask mandates, and more travel restrictions, and vaccinations mandates, all because he really looks like a horses hind end since he said that Donald Trump didn’t have a plan for COVID, “but I do”.
And with only 50.4% of the population fully vaccinated, and about 64% getting one of two shots needed, we are a ways away from what Fauci calls “Herd Immunity”. Whatever Biden and his gang have been trying haven’t worked. He blames Republicans, but that’s not all true. There are plenty of liberals and Democrats that have not been poked with this vaccine. Their reasons are as varied as you can imagine. Some don’t like the government telling them what to do. Others don’t feel that the vaccine has been fully vetted and that it was rushed to market. Others still have already had COVID, so they are actually more resistant to the virus than people that got poked. It goes on and on. And it’s not an ideological thing either.
But the main question is, is it being handled fairly?
The simple answer is no. Unemployed folks aren’t being forced to get a vaccine or tested weekly or lose their jobs. People in small businesses aren’t being forced either. And don’t get me started on the illegal aliens flowing across our southern border. Some of them have been tested positive for COVID and are allowed to go into our communities. Why are they allowed to carry the disease with them and wander around free, and the rest of us are being told to quarantine in place?
You can’t use several different rules here. It’s one rule for EVERYBODY. Frankly my wife and I took the vaccine and have been fully vaccinated since April. That’s because we wanted to travel, and I have more than a little faith in the pharmaceutical industry. Neither of us have suffered any side effects or short term (it’s only been 6 months) effects.
As to should everyone HAVE to get vaccinated? I don’t believe so. I believe that is an individual’s choice, and as I have said earlier, I liken it to the inconsistency the left is showing with the abortion argument. They make the case that “it’s a woman’s right to choose what’s right for her own body.” OK. If that’s the argument you’re going to use for abortion, shouldn’t you be using the same argument here? Isn’t it the individual’s right to choose whether or not they get vaccinated? From a consistency standpoint it doesn’t make sense to me. You can’t say a woman has this right to do with her body what she wants, and then take that right away when it comes to something else that she wants to do with her body. That’s insanity.
That’s exactly what we are dealing with as far as Joe Biden’s policies regarding COVID are. He wants this to continue. He doesn’t want this to go away quickly. The reason is simple. The longer the government can exert control over you and me and tell us what we have to wear (a mask), what medical procedure we must do (vaccination), and limit our freedom of travel, especially if we aren’t vaccinated, the more likely it is we will accept these limitations to our freedoms long term. That’s wrong and it’s unconstitutional. THAT is why you see Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, and the uber-leftists wearing masks when the cameras are on and taking them off the minute the turn off the cameras. It’s a control thing. That’s one of the things liberals do.
I don’t agree that you should make a rule for government workers, public workers, and places of business with 100 or more employees, and leave the rest of the country (and the illegal aliens who are bringing COVID into this country in droves) free to do what they want. And I err on the side of individualism. You want to give some people like politicians the right to not wear a mask? OK, then nobody has to wear a mask. You want to not be vaccinating a group of people (take your choice), OK, then nobody HAS to be vaccinated. It is your choice, and you should be able to discuss it with your doctor and make whatever informed decision you want to make.
And it only starts with COVID vaccines…it extends to everything in our lives. Make a rule, and we ALL should obey it, not just the ones we like. And yes, that includes the idiot politicians of both parties in DC!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
