Disruption, Industry Insiders Say

Original Article

American truckers don’t like taking orders. But the Biden administration has increased pressure on them to take the vaccine—willing or unwilling. All through the pandemic, truckers endured hardships to keep America’s infrastructure running. They waited in line for hours in sight of bathrooms they weren’t allowed to use. On the road, some died alone of COVID-19. (snip) Polls by trucking publications Commercial Carrier Journal and OverDrive indicate that up to 30 percent of truckers will seriously consider quitting if forced to vaccinate. (snip) US Transport estimates that 70 percent of American freight goes by truck.

The whole economy is likely to grind to a John Galt stop on this damned 'vaccine mandate'. Huge numbers of people realize that The Shot could sicken or kill you in the short term, and do ANYTHING in the long term. Liteerally a hill to 'NOT die on' for many. Keep it up an really just shut down the economy.

I drive a truck for one of those big companies. If my company mandates the vaccine I will find employment somewhere else. Multiply that by 5000 in my company alone and see what happens.

Combine this article with one I read yesterday(?) about UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc, warning of vaccine shortages from supply chain disruptions due to vaccine mandates causing labor shortages, and I am seriously considering buying at least a 30 day, if not a 90 day supply of my heart meds outside of my insurance coverage even though I just got a 90 day supply Oct 14. I discussed the cost with my pharmacist when I picked I got this last supply and she thinks it is prudent.

FTA:Long hours away from home and mediocre pay don’t attract new drivers to the business, even when they have the right skills. New workers also might not compare with longtime professionals. Experienced truckers thread their trucks through a complex ballet of traffic conditions and federal regulations.. It takes a special breed to endure as a truck driver. It's astounding the government would do anything to discourage the few who can do it for a living.

#8 IMO it would be foolish and way too costly to take a flight for Thanksgiving. Now is the time to start new traditions for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Stay at home. Buy local. I'm reminded as a child we would make a quick trip from south of Houston to north of Fort Worth, aka 400 miles, for Thanksgiving. We'd repeat the trip for Christmas. In 1963 when JFK was killed my parents were just too sad to make the trip. We stayed home and had a great time with the neighborhood Thanksgiving. It began a new family tradition. Looking back on it it made for a happier Thanksgiving.

We’ll never force the vaccine on our drivers but I worry about truck stops and shippers and receivers requiring it. It used to be drivers would check into an office to load or unload but during the shutdowns most made a way to do it by phone. Bols were left in the trailer so no human contact was made. It’s all so incredibly stupid.

Despite the COVID-19 vaccines having been promoted as safe and effective by legacy media, many health care workers are refusing to take them, and those who openly speak out about their concerns get censored by Big Tech companies or kicked off their platforms. Some nurses and doctors are refusing vaccine mandates even if their refusal will cost them their jobs. The Epoch Times reached out to some of these health care professionals to see why.

In late July, I was dropping my younger daughter off for a soccer day camp each morning.(snip)They wore masks for six hours each day, and it was about 85° that week.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk slammed President Biden’s proposed tax on billionaires’ unrealized gains, which would target ultra-wealthy entrepreneurs like Musk and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. (snip) Responding to a tweet that urged people to write to their political representatives in protest of the proposal, Musk said, “Exactly. Eventually, they run out of other people’s money and then they come for you.” The proposal, which would likely apply to fewer than 1,000 of the nation’s wealthiest citizens, would tax unrealized gains on billionaires’ assets, like stocks and real estate. People’s ownership in stocks is currently only taxed when they decide to sell.

A Virginia judge on Monday found a teenage boy guilty of sexually assaulting a schoolmate. The crime took place at Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn on May 28. The boy, 15, was convicted on one count of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible fellatio, both felonies, local media reported. “I found the facts sufficient to support the charges,” Pamela Brooks, the chief judge of the county’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, said during the hearing, according to WTOP. The victim said she and the boy had consensual sexual encounters before the assault but that she did not consent to what he did in May

There is plenty of evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 have protection against reinfection, Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) said. “There’s ample scientific studies that show that natural immunity is absolutely one of the best things you could have—and some studies even show that it’s more effective [than vaccination],” Harshbarger said (snip) Natural immunity refers to post-recovery antibodies that shield people against reinfection of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19. Multiple studies have indicated that natural immunity among past COVID-19 patients is strong and similar or superior to the protection from COVID-19 vaccines. Some experts have pushed for federal health officials to take natural immunity

To great public fanfare, Joe Biden has anointed Rachel Levine a “four-star admiral” in the Public Health Service (PHS). The public relations campaign in support of Levine has emphasized his status as the first transgender four-star “admiral” in the “eight U.S. uniformed services.” That PR campaign is misleading, and it is part of a dangerous effort to undermine the military.(snip) This roll-out and publicity barrage leave little doubt that Levine’s primary qualification for his instant promotion is his transgender status. What’s worse, it will damage U.S. military recruitment and morale, thus damaging U.S. national security. This Is Politically Driven Rank Inflation

I wrote previously about the offensive remarks that Barack Obama made while he was campaigning for Terry McAuliffe in Virginia. Among those remarks were ones attacking the concerns that parents have had in Virginia about what is happening in the schools and what is being taught. “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.” He accused Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin of avoiding “serious problems that affect serious people,” and suggested that outrage over the actions of school boards is unjustified.

It was probably the worst day of Alec Baldwin's life when he accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie "Rust" on Oct. 21. It's a time to feel terrible about a 42-year-old woman with a husband and a young son. Then, CNN's Jake Tapper used it in one of his commentaries to denounce the entire Republican Party for making this tragedy an occasion for jokes. "There's something about our politics right now that is driving people away from our shared humanity."

Donald Trump Jr. is taking aim at a longtime family foe—he’s hawking a t-shirt that uses a tragic movie-set shooting to mock Alec Baldwin, who famously skewered his father on “Saturday Night Live.” A tee declaring “Guns Don’t Kill People, Alec Baldwin Kills People” is selling for $27.99 on a merchandise site linked to the former president’s namesake son. The reference is to the Thursday slaying of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was hit by discharge from a prop gun while working on the Baldwin film “Rust.” Baldwin, the film’s star, was handling the weapon from which the fatal shot was fired. The movie’s director was injured as well.
