COVID-19 may end up destroying everything. Everything. Including our way of life. And our prosperity. Or, more accurately stated, the elites’ reaction to the virus may do what no previous enemy, foreign or domestic, has ever come close to doing. It is inarguable that without the coronavirus pandemic, Joe Biden would not be president today. And he and his puppet masters are well on their way to destroying America’s work ethic, social fabric, economy, military, and global respect.
And now Biden is pressing employers to enact mask mandates, making one’s vaccination status a condition of employment. It is illegal for an employer to ask a prospective employee about his race, age, sexual preference, or other medical history, but dammit, they can say, “Show us proof that you’ve had ‘The Jab’ or take a hike.”
The highest unemployment rate in U.S. history was 24.9 percent in 1933, at the height of the Great Depression. Broad-based government-backed employer vaccine mandates would effectively mean that as many as 30 to 35 percent of us will essentially be told we can’t have a job. Do we starve, surrender our homes, or go on unemployment and various other forms of government assistance?
What if the government decides that we won’t be allowed to collect unemployment or any other form of assistance if we are not fully vaccinated?
In this one instance, and one instance only, I could see the administration saying it wouldn’t be fair to make taxpayers have to fund benefits…for The Unvaccinated. It would be the government’s very policies that created this massive group of unemployed and their subsequent need for assistance, but no one would be allowed to mention this with impunity. We are also in the throes of a pandemic of lies, obfuscation, and authoritarianism.
To say this does not bode well for the American economy, as well as the unvaccinated, would be an understatement. Even if additional assistance were not paid out, the burden on remaining taxpayers would be greatly increased. And the already historic labor shortage would be greatly exacerbated, most devastatingly so in the health care industry, ironically.
The fact that the unvaccinated are quickly being banned from restaurants, concert halls, sports venues, retail stores, theme parks, etc. necessarily means a substantial drop in revenue for these venues as well. Many businesses will have no alternative other than to close permanently. That means more unemployed people. Which…well, you get the idea.
We now even have the specter of people needing critical or life-saving surgery being told they must submit to becoming fully vaccinated before they will be accommodated.
The powers that be care so much about our health that they are basically telling us to “eff off” and die unless we agree to be vaccinated. One gets the distinct impression that our rulers would love to deport all of us MAGA-wearing unvaccinated types and replace us with refugees from any place that has no history or concept of individual liberty and the rule of law.
