Right to work.

A mandate would be forcing you to get vaccinated against your will

instead it is now a requirement of being employed at Newsmax, you can choose to not get vaccinated, but you are also no longer allowed to work at Newsmax

BREAKING REPORT: Former Trump Adviser Steve Cortes Out at Newsmax after publicly stating HE "WILL NOT COMPLY w/ any organization's attempt to enforce Biden's capricious & unscientific" Mandate...

"Breaking News", or in this case, "Breaking Report", means absolutely nothing anymore. I can't tell you how many times a day my phone chimes in with something like "Breaking News: President Biden lands in Europe on eve of climate meeting." Or "Breaking News: Adele's new album debuts at #1".

That's not "Breaking News". That's hardly News. Breaking News would be if something happed at the climate meeting.

And this story?  Who cares?  Even Fark usually holds off on the NewsFlash tag for actual real news. And here, it's not News, it's Fark. I wish I could program my phone to give me just one Breaking News story a day. Maybe then it would hold off and deliver one actual Breaking News story daily.

The Biden Administration mandate is on hold, pending action by the Federal Courts. This is all on Newsmax. But that doesn't fit the narrative.

Unscientific?

Are you sure you know what that word means?

Good for him for sticking to his principles.  On the other hand, they're really stupid principles.

It's very like conseratives to preach and harangue the masses into fits of hysteria over masks and shots while quietly getting them for themselves, even if they have to go to another state or county like they do for their abortions.

I wonder how conservatives feel about being coaled by pick up trucks? Or drinking the cheap nasty beer they make for ignent proles and high school kids?

Our cheap nasty beer was named Fiddy Cents. Literally. That was because it cost fiddy cents.

Dead for Tax Reasons: deep state got to newsmax, time to move on to even derpier pastures


I'm sure the dipshiats already are.

First they were contained with Fox News, and the Limbaugh Hate Machine.
Then it became Newsmax, Alex Jones, et al.
Then it became ONAN.

Time will come where even 45's own words aren't enough. It happened with Germany in early 45- some of the truest of the true believers thought that Hitler was being weak for sequestering in the bunker in Berlin, that clearly high level officers were influencing him.
 
2021-11-27 6:47:59 PM

robertus: My brother-in-law thinks his company is basically gonna shut down because of the vaccine mandate


There's a local urban outfitter company that I do inventory for sometimes that has entire store crews that aren't vaccinated. I really don't farking get it anymore, you'd think companies would be willing to lose an hour to a vaccine rather than a week to Covid. It's just so dumb at this point.

How much ya wanna bet Cortes has already been vaxxed months ago?

Most places are finding over 95% compliance with a vaccine  requirements. It is working

Eventually the unvaccinated are going to be the ones having to stay home since they decided they do not want to be part of a happy healthy society anymore

Eventually someone's gonna drop the first big lawsuit for getting Covid in one of those places, maintaining that the store willingly created an unsafe environment for customers.  It's going to be interesting how the reactions go then

My NBC News and local news apps quit bothering to restrict it to breaking alerts only a long time ago and now just send me push notifications around 5-10x a day just on the hope I'll tap them and read them.

/I turned off alerts on the local news one the second I quit working for them.
//NBC News one isn't as bad and there's a lot of value in getting true breaking stories.
///That said, they seriously sent me an alert about an hours-old story while I was typing this.

Those people all got vaxxed months ago. But the rubes will still love that Newsmax is "fighting back."

Weird how these conservative organizations seem to be all for vaccines when it comes to their own safety.

It's almost as if they are grifters who don't mind tearing down society as long as it furthers their goals.

Let's see how these anti-vax, anti-mask assholes handle omicron. I heard on NPR this could have an R0 of 50.

The only certain outcome of all of this is that next time Republicans are in charge, they're going to force all blue states to get shots that "cure communism".
 
2021-11-27 7:15:06 PM  
Why would they trust a vaccine developed during the Trump administration?
 
2021-11-27 7:17:29 PM  
Of course they are. If Newsmax refuse, there goes the health coverage of all their employees. No insurer will touch them, and none should.

This would be the case with or without a federal mandate, which would be unlikely to apply to Newsmax as it is presumably not a federal contractor.
 
2021-11-27 7:17:35 PM  
What about OAN?  Aren't they the ones that think Newsmax is left wing?

CSB: I actually was at the Central Park Zoo NYC some 40 year ago. Went into the Gorilla Wing and there was a big Silverback. just glaring at the 15-20 people who were staring , laughing, pointing.

Then he reached behind,,took a big dump, and came around with a hand full of carrot colored poop.

All the people went eww, and headed for the exit fearing he would throw it at them.
They all had to look back to see what was up. He very nonchalantly proceeded to eat it.
The crowd couldn't get out of there fast enough

Didn't a lot of the derpier states give companies immunity against covid lawsuits from staff and customers?
