Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Marci Hamilton and Paul Offit: Now that the US Food and Drug Administration has approved the Pfizer/ BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older, it's time for all governments across the country to mandate the vaccine for people taking part in indoor activities. There are no more valid excuses for not being vaccinated other than health reasons.

The problem is enforcement. Just like with masks, a lot of law enforcement and other local authorities will refuse to enforce it.

Communal living has always been about communal good.

People who don't want to get the coronavirus vaccine should be glad we don't Exile them to some godforsaken Hinterland filled with jackals.

How is this "we" Tor?

You are no more a citizen than I am. Matter of fact, we are equal. And you dont get to decide my rights or what's right for me.

We have the Constitution and the courts to decide... not cowboys.

Nor you for him. I don't get the impression you grasp the second part.

Last week with the scooter club I rode down to Lazaretto house. It was built in 1799 and used to quarantine ships and sailors heading into Philadelphia. The founding fathers clearly believed they had the right to force medical decisions on folks for the good of all.

Did you resist shots the military required, or were you a sheep?

Of course we do. We literally do it everyday.

We put chemicals in your water. We require you not drive after drinking. We don't let you possess certain drugs. We decide if you can own guns, what guns, and where you can bring them. The list goes on.

We literally decide your rights every single day.

And get this: We decide what vaccinations you are required to receive to go to public schools, join the military, etc.

We can absolutely decide you need vaccinations to enter certain public spaces or are required to wear a mask. Deal with it.

The situation is bad enough that in some areas vaccines may an ethical obligation same as installing stop signs and other things Republicans aren't bright enough to appreciate.

What a idiot. You are what's wrong with America. Still haven't learned the meaning and value of interdependence.

If you cannot live in a society with other humans and follow the rules agreed upon by that society then GTFO.

Have you packed your bags for that deserted island where you can live alone and make up all your own rules yet?

Why are you still here? Don't let the door hit you in --- on the way out.

People that deliberately conflate rights and freedom with their doing whatever they want don't deserve rights and freedom.

"Taking part in indoor activities"

That's a weird euphemism for every that isn't homeless.

Just more evidence that Liberals don't get it.

"We agree, but also believe that the public needs to better understand that there is no constitutional right to avoid vaccine mandates against a deadly disease."

In the vein of Liberals since the 60s...define "deadly". The flu is deadly but vaccines aren't legally mandatory. There are a lot of things that are deadly that aren't legally mandatory. Dems have created an entire, millions-joined culture where they question the definition of pretty much everything in the Constitution. The Constitution states that only citizens can vote...Libs for decades have been redefining what it means to prove you are a "citizen". The Constitution states that our right to bear arms shouldn't be infringed...Libs for quite a while have been asking what "infringed" really means. And on and on and on. Lung cancer has a significantly higher death chance yet cigarettes aren't illegal. Heck, alcohol is in the same boat and many of those victims didn't drink anything and were killed by someone who did.

There is a .05% chance of dying from covid. To call that a deadly disease and make it a national emergency is wrong when taken in context of everything else that can be deadly. That can't be debated. It is wrong. It doesn't mean the Reps are right, so don't get your pull-ups in a bunch. The whole "masks don't help" and crap like that is just as stupid. But what is happening is the stupid Libs and the stupid Cons are trying to come to a conclusion which can only be stupid. We need the smart Libs and smart Cons doing the work but, unfortunately, neither side votes in the smart ones because they are typically balanced and NEITHER side of the dumb people want anyone who is willing to compromise anymore.

Seatbelts are mandatory. Sit the ---- down and shut the ---- up. Your made up stats don't fool anyone.

"There is a .05% chance of dying from covid."

Actually, across all demographics, it is 5% (1:20), not 1:2000. Did you mean a .05 chance (not percent)?

Why don't you ask the nurses and doctors who have been worked to the bone and are now quitting their jobs to define it for you?

The good doctor's testimony is invalidated by ongoing reality.
