    The president announced that he was ordering all employers with 100 or more employees to require vaccination as a condition of employment. Many employers complied with what they thought was a lawful order. Some apparently were happy to have government cover for what they wanted to do anyway, some were intimidated, and some just wanted to be down with the cause, Whatever the motivation many people lost their livelihood because of the mandate.

    It was supposed to apply to all fields of employment from government to medical, to industrial. I personally talked to two different heads of two medical groups who mandated the vaccine and as a result, many or most of their nurses walked out. Nurses were fired across the country especially in New York City where brave nurses went public with their decision. If the government really cared about the health of Americans, why would it orchestrate the firing of so many frontline health workers.

    It was all just a bluff by a federal government that has apparently descended into madness, pure evil, or both. Joe Biden has no legal authority to issue such an order and someone in his administration apparently knew that but decided to run the bluff anyway. There was no law duly passed by congress, and not even an unconstitutional executive order was issued, it was just a badly run bluff. The administration made press statements about it, and their captive media announced it as fact, but press announcements are not law either.

    Many companies announced that their mandates were to begin in December as required by federal law, but a few brave people refused to comply. The constitution does not give the federal government such power except when the government by decree takes control of everything as in the Civil War. No civil war exists now so the states have plenary power to regulate the health and safety of their own citizens. No authority to impose a fine on people who refuse to be vaccinated exists, at least no lawful authority.

    I saw a story out of California where a burger franchise is refusing to be the “vaccination police” by forcing their customers to show proof of vaccination.

    The state has forced them to close. Hope it goes to court. Even in California a judge has to realize a private business cannot force customers to produce medical documents for service.

    peace to you
