    The video is comical and tragic at the same time. "magnetic vaccine crystals" ?! WTF
    Sweet merciful crap. That is indeed comic and tragic.

    (CNN)A group of Houston Methodist Hospital workers protested on Monday the health care system's requirement that staffers be vaccinated against Covid-19, according to CNN affiliate KTRK.

    Employees had to get the Covid-19 vaccine by June 7, according to Houston Methodist.

    More than 100 staffers at Houston Methodist filed a lawsuit on May 28 against the health care system over its vaccine policy, saying the vaccines are "unapproved" and "experimental." The plaintiffs are asking for a temporary injunction against the policy.

    Jennifer Bridges, one of the plaintiffs, told KTRK that employees who did not comply with the policy have been suspended. Houston Methodist said any employee that did not comply with the vaccine policy will be suspended for two weeks. If they are still not vaccinated after the two weeks, they will be terminated.
    Good.
    The EEOC states that employers can mandate vaccinations because “unvaccinated employees present a direct threat to others in the workplace”. Yet the military has no such mandate, even aboard navy ships. Considering how quickly infections can spike on ships as we have witnessed, you’d think Biden would waive the informed consent requirement for emergency use drugs in the interest of national security.
    It doesn’t seem like the EEOC is on strong ground here. And I think “terminating” human beings is rather harsh.
    Unless it's Sarah Connor.

    According to World-o-meter, they haven't reported a case since June 4th. They also haven't reported any statistics either.
    They've gone to weekly reporting. Since the daily data is too noisy anyway it's no loss.

    I actually now know someone in real life (not real well, just briefly talk to now and then) who believes in the Bill Gates-put-a-microchip-in-the-vaccine thing, and is why he won't get vaccinated. AFAIK, he seems to be an otherwise fairly normal, mainstream guy with a real job, nice car and two little dogs. It floored me when a mutual friend told me about this. Which reminds me, I got vaccinated on Monday (J&J vaccine), and after the woman injected me, I said, "Did the microchip go in?" She LOL'd, and said, "There are no microchips in the vaccine!".

I said in my car, which was true, got on the elevator and went back to my office. So to avoid the hassle I don't access the elevator in the lobby, I just go to the below ground parking and catch the elevator there.
    You must feel so proud.

    It's not about Trump's taking credit. Trump is a bad person, and he also screwed up the covid response for the most part. But it's about accurately representing history.

    I'll take your word for it for the sake of the argument, but he certainly did not have to start the vaccine development from scratch.

    Exactly. So can you explain what is going on here ? How else do you explain that brass is magnetic ? It’s the vaccine.

    The bad news is that I feel awful. The good news is that my 5G reception is great.

    That vaccine reaction is no joke.

    At least the deed is done. Yay
