Non-conformists must be punished, "the science" says.
I'm on a WWI bender and the parallels between then and now are striking.
The elites may have been even more deluded then. Everyone thought the war would be over in a couple of weeks.
Then, the Prussians thought if they killed innocent Belgians through vicious reprisals, everyone would just get scared and sue for peace. But they were wrong, and the whole world turned against them. I could go on.
The elites think once again, if they pass laws forcing everyone to do what they want, then they will finally get their way. I suspect the elites are wrong once again.
Well Jordan you earned my subscription for a year, keep up the good work. Yes this posse of clowns saw the poll numbers for the China virus response and are panicking because it was the only issue the hologram in chief was not under water on. What he just did was an even more fatal mistake than Afghanistan, we Americans are a stubborn lot, you push us and we push back harder. Also I wonder how the race hustlers are going to spin this since only 34% of blacks are vaccinated? This is going to hit minorities the hardest if it is allowed to stand.
This tyranny will not stop until 'we' find a way to stop it. So far, 'they' have all the power, all the money, all the influence, all the media, all the . . . You can see this fight will be uphill from here on out.
Thanks for the voice Jordan, again great work. When will an “expert” give me a real reason to get a shot when I have the antibody? I reject everything so far that I have heard and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work. If i have to be considered “unvaccinated” so be it.
Amen Jordan, the fear coming off that man was palpable.
He is anti-American.
He is a failure.
He is to be fully ignored.
I expect this very soon to be shot down and stymied through multiple varying levels of the judiciary, and to try and get this accomplished via a 'sleight of the hand' OSHA technicality is a joke.
Joe's a joke and nobody is laughing anymore.
I would say it's more than 25%, but I'm interested where that number came from.
The hubris and mendacity of this act is breathtaking. I can recall several times over the past 18 months members of this Administration, including the Chief Executive, acknowledging a mandate was neither legally permissible nor appropriate. To have this reversal, and to couch the reversal in these draconian terms, is outrageous, and the fallacious logic employed in the arguments justifying these measures inspires the question: exactly how mentally impoverished does this Administration consider the American people?
I am vaccinated as are my wife and children. I judge neither those opting for the vaccine nor those opposed to receiving it. It is a personal choice and, given the following, it is perfectly reasonable to honor a person's individual autonomy in this matter: one, the statistical probability of survival for many even absent novel genomic therapy; two, the likelihood of naturally acquired immunity providing effective protection against this virus; three, this virus is now endemic and we will have to learn to live with it and its multiple future variants for which we have no genomic therapy; and four, the emergence of excellent treatment therapies and protocols that are effective in limiting mortality post-infection.
I am very disappointed and not a little frustrated by this turn of events, and hopefully we will achieve a more rational outcome in the coming months than the alternative this Administration has decreed.
