LIES OF THE WORKPLACE VAX MANDATE

11/4/21

So here’s another quickie in which we should notice the lies being told to us every day all the time by those looking to control our lives. I was just reading this article entitled “Analysis: Wide array of opponents prepare to fight Biden vaccine mandate” which talks about what the title indicates. Hopefully there is still some sanity and justice in this country and the assertion that “There will be so much litigation it will never see the light of day,” will prove correct.

But the thing that caught my eye was (my caps) “[The mandate] will be issued as an emergency temporary standard (ETS) by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which regulates workplace DANGERS…To issue an ETS, OSHA must show there is a ‘GRAVE DANGER’ in WORKPLACES, and it needs to JUSTIFY that emergency rule as a necessary response…White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has said a pandemic that has killed over 740,000 Americans qualifies as a ‘GRAVE RISK TO WORKERS’”. Well, there you go, Psaki said so. Now roll up your sleeve.

But here’s the thing, about 75% of the “740,000” deaths attributed to COVID in the U.S. have been in people over the age of 65. These people are almost entirely out of the “workforce” and they are most certainly not working the line at the local widget factory or slaughterhouse. It is estimated that about half of the deaths in people over 65 were of people living in some kind of long-term care facility which I’m pretty sure would keep them from lunch-pailing it to the local assembly line every day. Of course you have to also remove kids ages 0-17 from the equation because so far the U.S. is not yet quite as much fun as China, and so I’m also pretty sure we don’t have 10 year olds making sneakers in some factory in Wichita.

So anyway, you end up with about 185,000 people between the ages of 18 and 64 (the “WORKERS”) whose deaths are attributed to COVID, which of course everybody knows is a completely nonsense figure. I’ll not argue the “from vs. with” COVID issue, but the CDC still lists about 15,000 COVID deaths as “violent” deaths (murder, suicide, auto accident, etc) and one would expect the vast majority of those deaths to come from this age range (although that data is not available). If you believe those 185,000 deaths are actually due to COVID then I have a pet rock to sell you, although you are free to believe what you want. But if we take the 185,000 and divide it by the roughly 190,000,000 people in the age range of 18-64, we end up with a population fatality rate of slightly less than 0.1%. That’s one-tenth of one percent. A risk of one-tenth of one percent is not a risk figure you would consider (or even be aware of) in any other aspect of your life; but now it is supposed to be the end of the world. For those getting their knickers in a twist because not all 190,000,000 people in that age range are actually working, the estimate of people actually in the workforce is about 160,000,000 which still works out to about a 0.1% fatality rate. So take it easy. And by the way, if the ‘vid represents such a “GRAVE RISK TO WORKERS” why does President Nappy Time’s edict only apply to about two percent of all businesses? 98% of business have less than 100 employees and roughly one-third of the workforce is in businesses in less than 100 employees. What’s the matter, President Mumbles doesn’t care about those people? Or is there some magic, I mean science, that says that only people who work in companies with over 100 employees are in “GRAVE DANGER” (Is there any other kind?)? If the risk is really so “GRAVE”, why not go after everybody? And when most of us hear about companies of over 100 employees, we naturally think of some office building or factory where more than 100 people are milling about just brewing up some superspreader juice (superspreaders are all but entirely mythical, btw). But the fact is, very few companies have that situation. Lots and lots of business with over 100 employees have them spread out all over the country (or the world) in groups well below the magic 100 threshold. Think of McDonald's for instance. So my mom and pop restaurant with 20 employees is not beholden to the order but McDonald's with over 200,000 corporate employees and some two million franchise employees is forced to comply, even though any given McDonald's location will have about the same number of employees as my place. Well I guess it's "science" beyond my understanding. My name's not Fauci after all. Oh well, moving on…

So anyway again, the point here is the White House uses the “fact” that the ‘rona has killed “over 740,000 Americans” to establish the “GRAVE RISK” to workers in order to justify violating your most sacred right to bodily autonomy in an attempt to force you to inject yourself with something you may neither want nor need. But when you look at the SCIENCE AND DATA of the actual “risk” to workers and how many Americans this unlawful and immoral mandate would actually “protect”, that justification becomes as thin as the ice Biden is standing on. And let’s not forget the whole reason for the mandate is to protect vaccinated workers from the unvaccinated workers because, you know, science. If you believe it’s OK to coerce someone to get vaccinated in order to keep their job so they can then protect…the vaccinated (against a virus that presents an almost zero risk to begin with), you are lost and probably haven’t read this far.

Words matter. Listen to what you’re being told by the “experts” and talking heads. Almost every single word is a lie. This is not a rant against getting vaxxed. I couldn’t care less if you get vaxxed – none of my business even if I did care (although I’ll be posting a multi-part piece on getting Junior vaccinated starting later today in which I sort of do take a position) – it’s a rant on the lying and misrepresentation that we absorb every day that leads many of us to think we “know” something about this pandemic. Stop listening to the experts and their corporate media comrades. They do not have our best interests at heart. And for the love of all that’s holy, stop living in fear.
