i've pretty much come to the conclusion 95% of this  :bs: is political. do i think the rona is real......YES. but back when trump was president the Dems rallied against any vacine as though trump was making it himself, now they wanna make everyone drink the juice???/ :doah: :rolleyes:

at this point if you want the shot get the shot, if ya done then dont get it. wanna wear a mask, have at it. wanna hibernate go ahead, wanna live your live have at it!!!!!!  the idea of having this vacine as a required vacine down the road is a crock of sheet!!!!!!

i'm a pretty handsome dude :sleazy: but i may not be the most healthy specimen but feel if i would get the rona i would be OK!!!!

This may be worker's only option to end this mandate garbage in its tracks.

Study Shows That 44% Of Employees Would Quit If Ordered To Get Vaccinated

Hospital to stop delivering babies after 30 staffers quit over vaccine mandate
there's a huge discussion about the jobs related to the vacine requirement over on IDO. i dont need to be concerned about choosing the vacine or my job, but man if you like your job, pays well.......thats one tough call to make.

again i think this has a long way to go before it will get truly implemented!!!

Yep, Glenn, making that call to quit is goona be tough for a lot of people.  But if you aren't in a union, you can't strike.  Walking is your only option.

As is congress.  You can't make up hypocrisy at this level of ineptitude.

https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-lifestyle/2-rochester-restaurants-announce-abrupt-closure-due-to-covid-worker-shortage

maybe one of Reb's places to go??

Yup, even though I was only at one of those places. My buddy Jerry Zubay and his family (that's his daughter Lindsay that owns Porch's Fried chicken in the historic train depot) owns those and other restaurants in Roch....Mr Pizza and both Newts. I've been going to those for many, many years. It really sucks.
Another great Rochester restaurant goes bust....and it isn't all the COVID. It's this town.
Jerry and I started out as reserve cops together many years ago before he left and I continued on in that field.

Rochester & St. Cloud are on the same path and it's not a good path. Gonna be major problems in both cities before long.

I went back to my mask wearing a couple weeks ago. I hate it, but I'd hate to die fighting for breath like my Mom did too. Lost 3 school buddies and one good friend this past two MONTHS alone. Seems like all I see is death this last year.

My last employer started charging people who were :smoking: an extra $100/month for their coverage a year or 2 before I left & that was 2011.  :scratch: How is this any different? :confused:

I just read that the Arizona Attorney General filed a law suit over this. Well the mandate.

Personally I think insurance companies or companies charging more for either or is a crock of crap. Just another money grab. Crooks!

 :scratch: :confused: Nobody's forcing them to participate in the employer's group plan & they can always buy their own healthcare coverage.   :whistling:

oh i agree, but honestly who the hell can actually afford to make those monthly premiums????????? :scratch:

and i dont think for one minute that they will not getr by with it. like you said they've done this with smokers for a long time.

having done contract negotiations for a long time, i've seen how they have evolved.  my former employer went a little differnet route about 3-4 years ago. i sat through all the meetings. instead of negotiation benifts and rates they brought in a group that offers many, many different types a plans...each employee got to "shop' For the plan they felt comfortable with as far as coverage and cost.  it put the burden on the employee to pick and choose.  AND the company still via contract still paid there portion of the negotiated premiums.

at first this was a HUGE pissing match, but with that group everything was, especially change. they liked others to make the decision then bitch about it. after the dust settled......no much!!!!

Exactly my point :doah:, that extra $200/month for the coverage they can get through the employer's group plan may seem like a GREAT DEAL after they look into paying for an individual policy for themselves. :crazy: Just for the record, I think :scratch: the insurance business is really just a legal scam too but you gotta have it ..............................or :oops1: :help:

There is a big difference between an excise premium for smokers and one for covid.

The long term health care cost increases for smokers has been demonstrated over time.  I think my company charges $50 per month.

There is no parallel with covid.  Give me a break.  There is no evidence to justify charging a non-vaccinated person an extra $100 or $200 a month for insurance.

It really is all about control (one group of people imposing their will upon another group of people) based on emotional fears and employing every tactic of coercion at their disposal.

This could be so much different if the powers that be didn't insist on mandating experimental drugs to be the best and only path forward.

One think I think you fellers missed.....smoking is an ELECTIVE choice, you CAN quit; getting COVID is not. No proof the vaccine is gonna stop you from getting it. That's my cawfee time wisom this morning.  :coffee:   :azn:
