Yesterday Biden scolded us all about how "vax mandates work."
Well, not really.
Yes, you might get people who are over-levered (their fault) and unable to erect the middle finger to "comply."
But in doing so you permanently destroyed their willingness to put 100% into their job. Now they are all pissed off, working only to the minimum required to not get fired, they hate their boss, they hate the company, they hate every screaming Karen who wagged their finger at them, they hate Biden and they'd like to see all of them bankrupt, gone, even dead. In today's tight labor market you can't replace them either; who are you going to hire? The bong-smoker you paid for a year to sit around and get stoned? How joyous and hopeful is such a person? Are they inclined to spend on luxuries? Take on more leverage and build businesses, families and prosperity? When you threaten to force them to do whatever you demand again -- and again -- and again -- even at the cost of their own health, money and life?
The economic damage from this is permanent. So is firing those who won't comply. Oh, they'll go find something else to do -- but odds are those independent thinkers are the top 5 or 10% of any organization.
Get rid of them and it's like firing five ordinary people for the one you did. Of course nobody thinks of that, but then again not many people are smart when it comes to this sort of thing. They should be -- but they're not.
Never mind the defense contractors. The problem is much worse there. A handful of people are key resources. They leave, the project isn't deliverable anymore because it can't be completed and you can't just go hire a replacement because of necessary security clearances. It takes a year or more to get a new TS approved. Does that new engineer also need SCI or (god forbid) SAP access for your nice project? That takes even longer. Never mind those who "go along" and play nice-nice with your "mandate"; how sure are you they're still loyal and not willing to stab the United States in the back? After all you just ****ed them so..... you didn't think this through very well, did you? What happens when two months after their wife gets jabbed -- because you demanded it as she's on the health insurance plan at the company -- she gets breast cancer? Now how loyal is that person?
Of course there were the lies. You won't "get" Covid if you get jabbed, so said Biden. Biden's own government has analyzed that and found it is not true -- of those over 65 as of August 7th 60% of the hospitalized Covid-19 cases were fully vaccinated. It's almost-certainly higher now. He lied and he knew it.
Those who he wants to fire if they won't follow his dictatorial Mengele-style mandate know it too; many of them see it every day because they're health-care workers.
Some of them run around with T-shirts on and preach at others. They're lying to themselves as well as everyone else; perhaps THEY had a bad reaction or worse, they see the data, they see people choking to death in 2 days and know they're probably ****ed so in a fit of pique they insist on dragging you down into the hole with them. They know good and damned well that the jabs wear off and thus don't work "as advertised" -- and that they have a nasty side effect profile. Ever been around someone who's addicted and tries to take you down the bowl with them when they know they're getting flushed?
Biden thinks he "wins" with such actions. No, he doesn't. He's ruined the economy. That's done now. A person, once coerced can't be un-coerced. You can't get back what you destroyed. It's gone. And that's without all the bad real effects that might come to such a person medically and which the government does not pay for, all of which, if any of them occur, will further damage or destroy that person's productivity and wealth along with their health. The odds of this blowing up within the next few months are extremely high and both Biden and the Republicans, who have refused to get out in front of this and call bull**** on it will own the whole thing.
What if all of this breaks the supply chain in ways that can't be foreseen or covered? The entire nation could find itself back in the 1800s technologically in a matter of weeks. Our cities, in particular, built as they are today make survival at that level of technology impossible.
And of course there's the 900lb Gorilla in the room nobody wants to talk about: Some people may choose to go hunting, having determined that since their choices in life have been taken from them everything they choose to do in retribution for that is free. You have exactly no way to know who those individuals might be or how many Biden created yesterday. The insane ones are easy to detect and catch as they tend to threaten and brag, plus since they're insane they're quite dumb when you get down to it.
The guy who's just had enough of that **** will say nothing to anyone until he decides to turn his last $2 into a corporate executive's worst nightmare.
Even worse is what happens if the general public as a whole realizes they've been had -- that these mandates are nothing more than a bunch of *******s drunk on power and the people as a whole turn on these ghouls. Impossible? Hardly. All it takes is for a critical mass of so-called "rare" breakthroughs and deaths to occur. We already know the jabs wear off and the virus mutates around them, exactly as was predicted before we started. Nobody knows what the number of people is (or, more likely, who) that have to get hosed for public opinion to flip 180 degrees into immediate white-hot hatred. With an approval rating under 40% less than one year into his term Biden is begging for trouble -- and might well find it.
There's not a damned thing anyone will be able to do about it if it happens either. 200+ million Americans, including most of the military and the majority of the cops who had their health permanently compromised, including their children .vs. who? A bunch of business executives, federal and state government stooges? That won't be pretty and the odds are rising.
I thought I had heard the most-stupid thing that a President could ever say the other week out of Biden.
I was wrong: He topped it yesterday with a propaganda piece full of knowing lies that guaranteed an economic crash much worse than 2008, 2000 -- and possibly worse than 1929 and the 1930s. It's in the bag folks. Be ready because what that will set off is anyone's guess.
God may have shed his grace on America -- but you pissed and shat all over it.
