It’s time for rebellion. From Karl Denninger at market-ticker.com:
….. did I think I’d hear a President of the United States all but declare war on 1/4 of the citizens of the nation.
Yet that is what Joe Biden did yesterday.
That was worse than stupid; it was inciting an all-on rebellion.
Within hours approaching half the States had declared vehement opposition.
In the fantasy land wild imaginations of some on the left everyone will fold. Uh, nope.
First, Biden reportedly exempted The Post Office. That alone was likely enough to get his attempt ruled against on an injunctive basis. You obviously aren’t serious about public health when one of the agencies that the public has contact with every day is exempt, it is an essential agency and has something like 600,000 employees.
Why did he exempt them? Because they’re a union shop and a large percentage have refused vaccination. Biden knows this and he knows that if they walk or strike he’s instantly ****ed, and they both can and might. A later update said oh no, they’re included. We’ll see.
But then during his presser he let the truth out: “We’re going to protect vaccinated workers against unvaccinated workers.”
If the vaccines are in fact vaccines and work then….. what protection do those who choose to get them need? None! But if they don’t work — if you get vaccinated and are still at risk then why would someone take one? It’s stupid to take a jab that doesn’t actually protect you. More to the point why would those who haven’t been vaccinated not tell you to go straight to Hell, and why would any court uphold this sort of order when you admit that a person who accepts the vaccine is not protected — that is, it does not actually provide protection against disease?
