    Yes, Employer Can Require Covid Vaccine

    The science of the vaccines has nothing to do with Trump's politics and corrupt incompetence. Maybe you should explain how you believe that Trump or any of his sycophants were responsible for or involved in the development or testing of the vaccines. What you regularly reflect in these vaccine threads is not skepticism, it's antivaccination acceptance of fear mongering and nonsense. If you were, in fact, skeptical you would end up discarding most of what currently compels you.

    This comment doesn't answer the question about which studies demonstrated effective treatment of covid with the drug.

    Getting the Vaccine: Nurses Lead the Way

    Public health is more than individual choice, surely you've noticed that before now. Do you spend much of your time concerned that a peer is going to tell you what to do with your body? That seems like more of a personal issue than a broad concern. BTW, does your current employer require proof of any vaccinations or a negative TB test for staff? Did you have to prove that you didn't put nicotine or cannabis into your own body for your employer? Maybe you told them to mind their own business...

    That's not surprising that so few adverse effects are reported. For instance, most people don't report the low grade fever, myalgia or malaise when they anticipate those symptoms as expected and of no concern. Were you making a specific point with your comment?

    The link feature in the app is broken. Here's one of the links. https://www.pewresearch.org/2021/01/29/how-america-changed-during-donald-trumps-presidency/ You know, I am always happy to admit when I am wrong. Maybe he was referencing that things were good in the middle east, I still don't agree with that perspective. I would argue that Trump further inflamed an already volatile relationship. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/28/donald-trump-middle-east-peace-plan-israel-netanyahu-palestinians

    So an out of control pandemic and a country reeling from a violent attack on the capitol that was inspired by the lies and corruption of the previous president is your idea of looking pretty good? What is more important than the health of the people and the health of the republic? Trump did immeasurable damage to this country and his efforts aren't yet concluded.

    I would argue that our immigration policy has gotten demonstrably worse and a notable measure of the current dysfunction is directly attributable to Trump policies and general neglect. An advantage of retirement is that I can listen to senate hearings while I putter about doing the silly things that old men do. Today I listened to the Senate hearing on minors at the border, the crisis as described by republicans. I would recommend giving it a listen if you have the time. Mayorkas Testimony

    MNA and Nurses Respond to the Killing of George Floyd by Police

    MNA and Nurses Respond to the Killing of George Floyd by Police

    LOL The problem isn't that black girls get shot because they are acting out. The problem is racism that blinds people to the reality that white people act out all the time without worrying about the police rolling up and killing them within seconds. Even having said that, the inadequate training and management of poorly educated police also allows police killing unarmed white people. Those numbers just aren't amplified by the racism that was the basis for American policing in the southern states. I'm glad that you are going to stop sharing your opinions on racism. That's the wisest thing you've shared in this thread.

    The Real Reason Republicans Want to Oust Liz Cheney

    A political leadership position should not be dependent upon ignoring dangerous lies which threaten our republic from the fellow who is yanking the strings of the House Minority Leader, don't you agree? I mean, upholding the constitution and protecting it from all threat is part of their oath, right? The people who just removed Cheney from leadership are not protecting the constitution from domestic enemies. They are removing power from a vocal advocate for protecting the constitution against the clear threat that the BIG LIE represents. McCarthy isn't protecting the constitution or the integrity of his party, he's protecting the sensitive and vindictive ex-president. Cheney supported Trump in 2016 when other prominent conservative families publicly dissed him. She voted with him 90% of the time on policy. What is the Republican message that she's not conveying? It seems like she refuses to send that complicit message of silence on Trump's dangerous lies. Cheney has a problem with Trump lying about voter fraud and destroying public confidence in our democratic processes. Cheney had a problem with Trump refusing to concede or facilitate a peaceful transition of power. She was removed for sounding the alarm as congressional republicans behave as if Trump is nothing more than a campaign money maker for them. She was always free to speak truth about Trump. Republican leadership just doesn't want to be publicly affiliated with or tolerant of the truth about Trump.

    It shouldn't be necessary to provide citations for something that is widely known as true. For instance, would you need a citation to believe that Liz Cheney's conservative congressional leadership was just cancelled? That's not what Beerman offers. As explained before, he employs Trumpian tactics that want to put nonsense on the record as if everyone agrees. Trump used that regularly in his public remarks with journalists. He would say thinks like "you know better than me that..." and then go on to make some bullcr@p point that no journalists agreed with.
