    Which I believe was the purpose of electing Trump in the first place. If everyone is busy hating on each other, then they spend no time looking at what is really going on.

    This shows the problem with putting crimes in special categories based on the motivation of the criminal. You can have two identical crimes that are equal in severity and equal in heinousness and born out of equally vile motivations, but if the motivation for one of those crimes falls under the category of terrorism, or if it falls under the category of a hate crime, then all of a sudden that makes it worse in the eyes of the law than the other crime that it's really no worse than. You can have petty crimes like this treated like something much worse than they are. There shouldn't be any such thing as "terrorism" or "hate crimes." Charge the crime for what it actually is, and not for what the alleged motive was.

    Who said anything about defending an existing private market? The status quo not being right is no reason not to defend what actually is right.

    That's the dichotomy that you yourself set up in the post I replied to when you said: If you're talking about infringements of people's rights that private companies commit in partnership with the state, then you're still talking about infringements committed by the state itself. There are some here who are not content with just saying that the state should refrain from cooperating with private companies in mandating vaccines for those they hire, do business with, or welcome onto their property, but they positively want the state to ban private companies from doing that.

    The first thing I'd do is request an antibody test prior to getting the jab. If you've already had Covid (and many people have had it and didn't know it), you most likely have better antibodies than what the vaccines could provide. If your employer wouldn't accept a positive antibody test, then they're not worth working for. You could always try the religious exemption - that may buy you some time and piss off your HR department. Otherwise, group together with other like-minded employees and threaten a lawsuit - the vaccines are still experimental, after all. If all else fails, don't be afraid to quit. There are plenty of jobs out there and you'll be better off in the long run. Start your own business. Do anything that provides value to people. Skills and experience are helpful, but you can get those easily over time.

    Hmmm.... Seems like a relevant data point since roughly a 3rd of the country has recovered from Covid based on the case numbers you've provided before. I wonder why we're not seeing that stat? Why are we not testing for antibodies prior to vaccination? It's the antibodies that matter, right? And you get a fuller set of antibodies from the virus than you do from mRNA shots.

    I don't think anyone is saying the free market is perfect. There is no such thing. But at least with private entities, if you don't like the way you're being treated, you can go elsewhere and stop doing business with them. The problem is when government gets in the mix and starts mandating things to protect businesses from a competitor that would choose to operate differently.

    The real reason for telling people to wear masks is as a club to motivate people to get vaccinated. As Kamala Harris says here: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/biden-administration-recommend-vaccinated-wear-masks-areas-low-vaccination-rates-n1275012 They have found that statements like this don't have much potency among the people who still resist both vaccination and masks. So now they're telling this to the vaccinated people. Those people are a receptive audience to this messaging. And the hope is that they can create peer pressure for those who aren't. They hope this will make vaccinated people say to their unvaccinated friends and family members, "You guys are the reason I still have to wear a mask even though I'm vaccinated! You're being selfish! If you won't get the vaccine for yourself, then do it for the rest of us!" And they suppose that maybe, like a brow beaten husband, the vaccine resisters will only endure that nagging for so long before they buckle just to get these people to quit nagging them. It may not work, but it's the tactic of the day, since other things they've tried haven't worked.

    I agree with you about the need for consistency. But that goes both ways. If it has to be all or nothing, then which side of the all or nothing are you on? Are you on the side that says that an employer does have the right to hire, fire or serve whomever they want, for any reason or no reason at all, including the reason of that person not being vaccinated, or are you on the side that says they don't have that right?

    I'm struggling to understand how you can reconcile simultaneously holding both of the following beliefs: 1. The government should not prohibit you from restricting your hiring to whites only. 2. The government should prohibit you from restricting your hiring to vaccinated people only.

    I've recommended this kind of system for all my friends in Health Care: https://www.moneycrashers.com/cash-only-doctors-no-insurance/ You may end up making less in your paycheck (depending on the clientele), but the job will be much more rewarding and with less stress. Don't underestimate the value of that! You have to understand that you're in the minority in Health Care, so your options will be more limited. But that doesn't mean they're not there. Hell, start your own nursing outfit!

    Well, then work for a company in the minority. But seriously, there is a problem with your mindset if you believe that you can't leave and get paid well. If a company is willing to pay a price for your services, so will a competitor. If your value is high enough, you hold all the cards. And isn't that what we all should be striving for?? Why would anyone want to be subject to the whims of an employer or the State?? I work for a corporation, but I consider myself self-employed. The corporation pays me well for the value I provide them. If either one of us decides it's not working for us anymore, we are both free to leave. No one owes anyone anything. The corporation could crumble tomorrow. I could become incapacitated. If you fear losing your job, then you may want to question your outlook on life - because you're allowing someone else to control you.

    You are acting as if people couldn't walk away. Here's what you say, "yeah, sorry. I don't want to do any of that stuff - I'll sell my services elsewhere, thanks." I understand the corporate/State relationship and yes, that's a problem. The state wants to control of people and business and corporations want the cover of the state so they don't have to worry about competition from other businesses who aren't doing these kinds of mandates. That's the problem. It's not inflexible dogmatic libertarianism, it's just a belief in personal ownership and responsibility. If I'm a business owner, I should be able to select employees that meet my criteria. If I'm an employee, I should be able to select an employer that meets my criteria. That's a free exchange. Businesses that want to mandate vaccinations will have employees that have no problem with it and businesses that don't will have employees that are fine with that. This wouldn't even be an issue if not for the imposition of the State.

    Dammit. People need to understand their power! Your company doesn’t own you or your labor. You sell them your labor. If you don’t like the terms of the agreement, stop selling to them! If more people did this, businesses wouldn’t pull this stupid crap. They wouldn’t be able to. It’s a free mutual exchange. You are the seller. If your buyer is placing crazy demands on you, end the arrangement. Screw ‘em. They don’t own you! Know your value and don’t be cajoled into accepting less than you deserve.

    Must be after. I didn't remember him having it. But he said back in October of 2020 that he had tested positive for antibodies back in July, meaning that he had to have had COVID some time before that. The fines began to be imposed in January of this 2021.

    I'm not sure what he said. I doubt that was it though. Being told that's what he said before seeing the video did make it sound right. But too many of the sounds were slurred to be sure. Here's the clip in context: https://twitter.com/MollyNagle3/status/1419386522747510785 When he says the indecipherable part, he has a grin like he thinks he was being funny, and someone off camera laughs. But right before that he got asked a policy question, and then right after saying whatever he said, he gets right to answering that question. It's not a perfectly worded answer--it seems like he slips up and says "immigration" where he meant to say "reconciliation" or something else. But it's not gibberish or sheer senility. He's at least with it enough here to understand the question and give an unscripted answer that basically fits the question. It seems like he thought he was being funny. Maybe that was by saying a totally non sequitur crass remark like that. But I really don't think it's clear, and seeing it in context makes me think that's not what he said, if he said anything at all at that point.

Wound up nekked making love on the beach and got caught by a couple walking by. Allin all it was a great trip. Our's was in Delray Beach Florida.

My sister-in-law is going back to school just so she can become a nurse and she plans on moving here from Florida, that was the reason for her career change. They have visiting nurses. There are lots of good hospitals like Dartmouth Hitchcock.
