I’ve been meaning to comment here on all of the turmoil that seems to be emanating from the White House recently but it has become so pervasive in a short period of time that I find myself in a quandary concerning what exactly I should be upset about on any given day. There’s just so much, isn’t there? The real question comes as to which topic (Afghnistan, COVID, Economy, etc.) takes precedence over any other. Well, the Presidents speech put that to rest for now. His lies and his clear attempt to polarize the country as I heard one commenter on TV refer to Biden’s polarization was no different than calling the unvaccinated lepers.
None of what he said, I think, did anything for convincing the majority of the unvaccinated to rush out today and get stuck. Nothing he said, not even the threats he made, convinced anyone I know who is unvaccinated to try and become vaccinated ASAP. Yes, I spoke to a few people afterwards. The threat of being fired from your place of employment, or your employer being fined, I guess for not ensuring all employees arwe either vaccinated or tet negative weekly probably won;’t fly in the courts. If it does, imagine that slippery slope becoming unnavigable as now the federal government will be able to control pretty much everything in your daily life.
All Biden is doing is attempting to divide the country. By the way: the effects of the Delta variant are waning right now, as we were told it would. It’s cratering pretty quickly. The same thing happened in the U.K. According to some, we may see variants for years, if not forever. In a way, like influenza. What are we going to do, shutdown the entire world every time there is a new variant? Seriously? One commenter, post speech, said we are no longer in a situation of a pandemic, but an endemic – something we may have to learn to live with (like influenza!).
The bottom line though is the big lie Biden told in that the unvaccinated threatened the health of the vaccinated. Yes, he said that. I shook my head and laughed. because this means the vaccine is worthless im preventing severe disease. It also means thatt yes, you can be vaccinated and still contract COVID, which most doctors I’ve heard say is true.
As always, the government is working on a one size fits all solution to an issue where that one size, doesn’t. How about natural immunity? There doesn’t seem to be a exemption there but of course there will be those political exemptions (USPS). This rule that OSHA eventually comes up with I think will certainly fail in a court challenge. What Biden spoke of yesterday goes way beyond his constitutional authority and, just like extending the rent/mortgage holiday, which he even stated outloud was unconstitutional, so too will this fall. This will be that last brick and even democrats in Washington won’t be able to protect him. forget about any and all future proposed legislation.
