I keep seeing people say they are not against the vaccine but refusing because of the mandate. This logic is stupid on it's face.

If you got an infection you would get antibiotics. Would you refuse it if the doctor said "As MANDATED BY LAW I am prescribing antibiotics"!?!?!?

If so, you are too dumb to have your own opinions.

Well if a dude with a gun doesn't understand the definition of "arbitrary", I'm going to retreat to a safe distance before I correct him.

I think that's why everyone is so confused by them publishing a story that is so alarmingly realistic.

We live in a hell of our parents and grandparents making but they just want us to suck it up and stop complaining.

Infuriating because of how accurate that is.

the federal mandate for contractors just got interesting where I work.

If there is a federal contractor who works in your building, the whole building needs to be vaxxed.  If you are funded by a federal grant, you will need to be vaxxed.  If you are just an HR person who files the grant paperwork for the contractor, you will need to be vaxxed.  Not sure if this extends to students yet.

It is going to be interesting at colleges and universities in the south this semester.

Living near an actual Beaverton, I was surprised that it was satire.  SA-TEE-RAY

Yep, just got an email today with the same thing (we are also at around 90 something employees, so, with a bit more hiring we are also going to hit the magic 100 number as well).

Yes, I see this exact opinion, even on Fark.
"I wear my helmet, but the government shouldn't mandate it!"
"I make sure my backseat passengers buckle up, but the government shouldn't mandate it!"
"If the government tells me to do something, I'm going to NOT do it just because!"

ODD in adults.

I've been saying, if you gave Police Dept's the ability to collect and keep the fines on being unvaccinated or non-masking, you'd see a 180 in what all of these police department people think about this.

These are the same people that think a medically unnecessary ultrasound is required for an abortion.  They're not really up on public health.  Or law.

Which is a dumb comparison anyway.  A person not wearing a helmet is really only a threat to themselves.  An unvaccinated person is a threat to all of those around them.

I love how people are just now getting their panties in a bunch over vaccine mandates when schools have had them for decades without much complaint.

Got love cops.
Cop: i don't make the rules i just enforce them.
Cop: no! I don't have to get a shot because you said so.

And fark society for not seeing this logic was always the case for their precious goons that protect the rich and kill the meek

I would be in favor on a kinetic energy limit instead of a speed limit.

"Sorry, citizen, this is a 200 kilojoule zone and with all those extra people in your escalade you're way over the limit."

I'm just glad big pharma will make all their money back off developing the vaccine. This in no way  resembles the big hand out to insurance companies forcing everyone to get that. Trying to think what else we can force people to get. Hmm.

We sell products and support contracts for those products to the feds, which makes the company a Federal Contractor, though it's a fairly small percentage of our revenue. Word came down on Monday their interpretation is every US employee must be vaccinated, even if you don't work with the government and even if you work entirely from home.

User name definitely checks out.

I get being skeptical of big pharma's motives, I really do.  And you can be damn sure people involved in the vaccine are going to find a way to make as much money off of it as they can.  But this whole covid thing wasn't just some concoction dreamed up so they could make money off a vaccine.  If they were capable of pulling off something like that they'd have done it back in the early 00's when members of the health community were sounding the alarm about SARS.  Or the swine flu outbreak in the late 00's.
