Kristi Noem Faces Backlash
From Conservatives Over Tweet
About Employer Vaccine Mandates

Original Article

Posted By: Ida Lou Pino, 8/2/2021 12:11:43 PM

South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem faced backlash over the weekend after she essentially told residents of her state that if they did not want to be mandated by their employer to take a vaccine, they could find another job in the state. “Workers whose employers are mandating a vaccine for continued employment have the power to say no,” Noem wrote on Twitter. “Our robust economy and job market gives them the option to find a new employer that values personal choice and responsibility, and doesn’t force mandates on their employees.”


When the chips are down - - Kristi Gnome always shows her true colors. She's a globalist corporatist stooge. Check out the comments embedded in the article.

I guess I don't see what was wrong with what she said. I am a conservative, and I believe in free market capitalism. As such, an employer should have the right and power to do what they believe is best for their company (even something as stupid as requiring all employees to take a dangerous and experimental vaccine that apparently doesn't do anything positive). And as an employee of that company, if I disagree, I have the right to say "no thanks" and go find another job. In fact, I have done that in my life. The less the government is involved in business, the stronger our economy is!!!

Is a company going to waive the "waiver" if someone falls ill? Will the company pay all of the medical costs if someone is hospitalized because of the vaccine they mandated?

If your employer wants you to be vaccinated in order to work at their job site, you can go along with it or find another job without that requirement. Stop your damn whining and expecting everyone to cater to your whims

Another Republican succumbs to fear. They are dropping like flies. Better know who they are now and plan on getting rid of them as soon as possible or suffer later. How about mandating you don't have to take an experimental drug unless you want to take an experimental drug, ok.

New Party or Nothing. You can’t undo what has been done. The corruption is too deep. It’s like a little bit of 💩 in the cake batter. You can’t just pick it out now. You need to throw it out and start over with New ingredients. Otherwise you will be eating the same 💩 the RNC has been feeding you for decades.

Really thought she was the real deal, but in fact just another RINO puke. Bye Kristi - you turned out to be another Nimrata. #4 - Vaccine mandates are not legal. Would you be OK with your employer mandating that you belong to certain organizations? Drive a certain vehicle? Be of a certain faith? If you accept it for this, you have to accept whatever other whim your employer cooks up, too. Pretty soon, they might find one that you find personally odious.

I don't think she should be invited back to CPAC. Gov of SD is as high as she will ever go. As for those that say just find another job, that cannot happen with professional medical people, teachers, and other professionals. The other jobs have the same mandates. Maybe Kristi should get another job. Maybe Biden should get another job.

She's clearly NOT a conservative, just "plays one, sometimes". Whenever a difficult issue comes up, she folds up, takes the easy, lazy, useless way out. If she is ever running for some office where I have a vote.....she won't have my support.

If she wanted to level the playing field, she'd push for legislation to insure that employees who are mandated to take the shot are entitled to compensation for any side effects in perpetuity in the same way that people are collecting for asbestos, breast implants, Roundup and baby powder. That would dampen some employer's enthusiasm for mandates.

Sounds just like a new minister brought into my old church..he wanted to 'modernize' the services and about 1/2 the members were what I call 'old church people'...we expected decorum from our minister, and he showed up on Sunday with a golf club in shorts and preppie shirt and did away with the old hyms...bottom line, he told all us long time members if we didn't like it, we did...he eventually moved the church out of the neighborhood to new digs...hope he's happy...

I'm not sure what the controversy is about. A private employer has the right to establish its own conditions of employment, doesn't it? And the option to stay or leave that job has always existed. So what exactly is the problem?

The problem is not employer mandates. She told anyone not liking them that they could leave the state. Although I don’t know why they don’t leave for sunny Florida and a governor who has their backs.

Employers and their companies cannot do whatever they think is best for their company. They cannot refuse to hire certain people, They cannot refuse to follow EPA regulations, etc. no matter how much better for their company. And they certainly cannot refuse to bake a cake which goes against their personal religious faith.

In the 1980s we went to Mt Rushmore for the 4th of July. Local politicians gave some rousing patriotic speeches, and the US Marine Band played a concert of patriotic songs on a beautiful blue sky day under those magnificent sculptures. It was a grand way to spend the Fourth. That memory makes me especially unhappy that the governor was unwilling to fight the idiots in DC on the fireworks. She should have just launched them anyway, ignored the anti-American pukes in DC.

The majority of Americans no longer believe President Joe Biden is competent in his role as the Commander-in-Chief, according to a CBS News poll. Fifty-one percent of the respondents said Biden is not competent in his position as president. This is compared to only 49 percent who said he is. Additionally, the poll found that 52 percent of the respondents did not feel the president has been focused. The poll was taken during and after the fall of the now-Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan, when Biden botched the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from the country. With that, 53 percent of the respondents said they disagree with the way Biden withdrew the troops.

The U.S. Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 during the insurrection was cleared Monday after an internal review concluded the action may have spared the lives of lawmakers and staffers who had barricaded themselves inside the building. "The officer’s actions were consistent with the officer’s training and (U.S. Capitol Police) policies," the agency's inquiry found. The agency declined to identify the officer. Federal prosecutors decided in April not to pursue criminal charges in the case. Some who supported the Capitol siege by rioters angry about the outcome of the presidential election cast Babbitt as a martyr to the conservative cause.

President Joe Biden hailed the FDA's approval of the Pfizer vaccine as the 'moment you’ve all been waiting'–as he urged Americans who have been sitting on the fence to get their vaccine shots 'today' but dodged comment on Afghanistan. It was a welcome moment of good news for an administration battered by weeks of negative headlines, from spiking cases of COVID-19 to the collapse of the Afghan government and plunging poll numbers. And Biden, speaking at the White House, portrayed it as a huge victory even though it will be of limited practical value months after the vaccination received emergency approval.

As disgraced outgoing Gov. Andrew Cuomo packed his bags and sent his belongings to his sister’s house in his last days in office, he left something very important behind—his dog. Instead, Cuomo asked staff at his Albany mansion if they want to take care of his dog, Captain, the Albany Times Union reported, citing two state police sources. The sources also told the publication an Executive Mansion worker recently took Captain home but didn’t want to take care of the canine. The pooch—a 3½-year-old Siberian-shepherd-Malamute mix—has bitten multiple people in recent years, the Times Union reported.
