Kudos to Mr. Biden for doing the right thing.
He just saved a 100.000 lives, even if some of the saved are too far gone to notice.
I was surprised he put on his man pants, but then again I thought about the world he grew up in...
Imagine a similar pandemic happening in the 60's or 50's and there is a vaccination campaign. What would it had looked like back then?
They would've put everyone in a line and jabbed, simple, methodical, straightforward.
There would've been fringe cases of exemptions only for people who had a previous history of adverse/unpredicted reactions. The rate is about 0.03% ( and 10 times less for dangerous reactions ) for the Pfizer vaccine. So let's say worst case scenario, about 0.1 of the population had an history of unpredicted vaccine reactions before the pandemic hit, they get an exemption from their doctor, everyone else gets in line and jabbed. That's 99.9% vaccination rate on the first shot. 0.03% of them get an unpredictable adverse reaction, those get an exemption for the second shot 1 month later.
Now, even back then some people would've made a fuss even if they couldn't get an exemption from a doctor because of their medical history.
Well, np, fine, literally, fine them an amount equal to half their bi-weekly paycheck every 2 weeks that they don't get their 1st shot. Make that fine payable when filling for their taxes next year. Send the fine by mail every 2 weeks to be included in the tax report.
Most people will eventually want the amount to stop climbing and will get their 1st shot. For those, tell them that if they also get their 2nd shot, you pardon them their fines in full, no harm done. For the others, if when the time for the 2nd shot comes, they still don't have their 1st shot, you fine them double per 2 weeks, their whole pay, still payable on next year's tax report. Most will eventually choose to get their 2 shots and get pardoned. The very few tiny weeny minority that remains, you can let the justice system deal with them when next year's tax reports come due and they can't make their payments. Announce before the 1st shot that it's mandatory for inmates and people arrested and put into detention to get vaccinated. They don't pay their fines come taxing time, jail and jab... Then release 1 month later.
Peaceful protests? Let them, no consequences.
Anyone riots? Cool! You grab'em, tag'em and jab'em. Watch as the riots of the unvaccinated disappear.
In the end, everyone who had real and reasonable medical reasons not to get a jab, didn't get the jab, those that didn't have medical reasons, well boohoo #sad motherfucker, you're fit for it, you get it.
That's it, done, no whining crybabies doing a bacon dance on the floor while screaming nonsense. No vaccination passport for the countries that do this now, and a minimum of drama.
That's pretty much the world our grand parents grew up in when there was something like this happening. Instead of dividing and going full egotistical, we used to get together in solidarity and stick together through the rough times, doing the right thing, not ( only ) for yourself, but for the community and no bullshit was taken. That's the world Biden grew up in.
And for once, I agree with their methods, seeing how badly we're fucking this up now because we're coddling the bacon dancing crybabies who have ZERO reasonable medical reasons to avoid getting their little arm booboo.This comment was edited on Sep 11, 2021, 09:53.
