The Unvaxxed NEED to face economic consequences

In trying to justify the government's actions to slow the spread of Covid, the comparison of the seatbelt law is often used as an example of a commonsense rule that the government imposed for public safety that we all have agreed to follow.
But we forget that the seatbelt law was hardly eagerly embraced by the public. Of course, we had no Fox News to clamour about tyranny, no Tucker to tell us to call Child Protection Services if we saw a child restrained in a seatbelt. But there definitely was resistance to comply with the law. Many saw it as an intrusive inconvenience into their personal lives (my body, my choice, if you will). So what finally won over those beltless, freedom-loving drivers? Was it data that showed that the belts did indeed save lives? Was it the PSA commercials on our TVs, showing crash-test dummies flying through windshields in slow motion?
No. What finally won them over was the simple slogan "Click It or Ticket!". It was the enforcement in the form of fines, fines that dramatically increased with each infraction, that ultimately made the US population into a nation of seatbelt wearers. Also, the knowledge that their auto insurers may not pay for injuries to an unrestrained client.
So, Joe was right to make Covid vaccinations a condition of employment for many Americans. THE UNVAXXED NEED TO FACE ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES!
Raise their health insurance premiums. Make vaccinations a condition for Medicare and Medicaid. Make their children show proof of vaccination to enter public schools.

So.... Does this mean that a state can outlaw the ownership of assault rifles

merely by creating a bounty for neighbors who report their owners?

Gov. Bill Lee's (now former) pastor was at DC rally Jan 6, and blamed Antifa for riot

I'm a little disappointed in myself. I consider myself an informed citizen, though I readily admit that I don't follow local politics as much as I should.

Steve Berger has since stepped down as pastor of his church.

Arkansas Gov. tries to reason with anti science constituents

who have been told that the covid vaccine causes infertility in women. He is drowned by booing.

"He then turned to Dr. Jennifer Dillaha, the Arkansas Department of Health Medical Director for Immunizations, who reiterated that getting vaccinated will not lead to infertility."

"I think it's important for people to have factual, accurate information," she concluded.
"We'd love to but you keep covering it up!" an audience member yelled at her."


So, for those members of society who object to the teaching of 'Critical Race Theory'

would 'Congratulatory Race Theory' be an acceptable alternative?

Gotta love The Onion


Adults Film Themselves Attacking Kids for Wearing Masks-

Just like Tucker Said to.
And then they uploaded it to social media.
If anything, the video just shows the adults being complete ignoramuses.

Lara Trump: Americans Living Along Border "Better Arm Up and Get Guns and Be Ready"

Source: Slate

Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, said that Americans who are living along the southern border need to take their security into their own hands by obtaining firearms and be ready to shoot them....in her appearance on Fox News’ Justice With Judge Jeanine.

“I guess they better arm up and get guns and be ready, and maybe they’re going to have to start taking matters into their own hands. "

There HAS to be some legal repercussions for fomenting this kind of violence. And Fox is as guilty as that trash-in-law.

The different sects of the future Republican Party

Since the Republican Party seems to be breaking into different factions, it may as well codify those factions as the Jewish people have done.
First, you have the Orthodox, who you can identify by the red hats they always wear and lack of face masks.
Then there's the Conservatives. They wear the red hats, but only to the rallies, and they WILL wear masks, but ONLY if the masks say "This is What Tyranny Looks Like".
Then there's the Reformed. They never wear red hats, they WILL wear masks when required, but they are hesitant to get the Covid vaccine because MAYBE it does change your DNA and turn you gay.
There's also Reconstructionist, and I've about run out of ideas, EXCEPT FOR;
The Ultra-Orthodox. Easily distinguishable by, well, you know, ...the horned-helmet guy. Perhaps he can become the Rebbe.
(Please, no offense to anyone, only done in fun)
