Voter fraud is not a thing.

Numpties lying about their vaccination status is commonplace.

Systems to protect against fraud are proportionate to their likelihood.

Well if you're spreading disease I'd say both. Trouble is you can't wrap your noggin around a right to vote and the privilege of eating out. At this point I'd say vax or no entry to either. Don't think getting a shot is really prohibitive.

One is a business telling people what to do. There is no law requiring shirts and shoes.

You need rules to make you feel safe. You need government to tell people what to do to make you feel safe.

If the business doesn't want to check people's vaccination status, shouldn't you vote with your wallet and go somewhere that does?

I mean, take Chick Fil A - I'm pretty sure that fast food doesn't check status. That place is crowded AF.

Grocery stores don't check either. Have you been there on a weekend? It's packed.

The "freedumb" movement is out in full force, and are in a way contributing to their own demise. I say this because I am wondering if COVID-19 is not actually a "deep state" plot at population control by autocratic states. Think about it, what is the biggest threat to the powerbase of a government? The answer is an uprising/insurrection/rebellion. Who are the ones who are more likely to be angered enough to organize into a rebellion? The poor and the working class, especially the more manipulated and less educated. Well these are the types also prone to conspiracy theories and science denial. The type who will not listen to common sense medical advice at pathogen avoidance. The ones more likely to rise up and revolt are the most susceptible to dying from it. It is also wiping out those who need society and social safety nets in order to survive like senior citizens and those with chronic but treatable illnesses. Using right wing ideological reasoning, COVID-19 is killing off the rabblerousers who threaten and those who are of no use to what they envision as their utopia. Basically a biological "final solution". Who are the ones pushing the conspiracy theories and science denial? Autocratic leaders like Bolsonaro, Modi, Trump, etc. Because of information censorship, we don't know what is really happening in Russia and China.

In case there are too many syllables, let me summarize:

You asked "what has Biden done?"

Answer:  "Issued executive orders (as broadly as possible) requiring employees to be vaccinated."  Which I assume you oppose for very good reasons that square with your accusation of Biden not doing enough to  respond to the pandemic.

You must live a life of privilege, because dining out in a restaurant is a privilege due to increased cost compared to fixing food at home. I've heard about a "chicken in very pot", but never has a politician promised everyone will be able to dine out. I guess it would have been nice growing up in a household where you ate in restaurants so much you get the false impression it is a "right", but all it shows now is how out of touch you are with regular working class people.

The conservative push for Voter ID is a clear indication that foreign actors are heavily influencing them. In many foreign countries there is no voter registration and you are issued an ID to prove your identity and right to vote. That's why so many conservatives are in disbelief that we don't use voter ID. Because that's the reaction of a foreigner who doesn't understand America's voting system. In America you manually register to vote, proving your identity and right to vote, and then simply verify that registration at the polls. Proving your identity and right to vote twice is obviously meaningless red tape if you actually understand voting in America.

Went to the pharmacy this morning and got my digital pass updated to show my third shot. (Had only shown the two back in June) It was free, but hey, the lady was easy on the eyes, so I dropped 2 Euros in the tip jar. I know, she isn't going to sleep with me, but I'm glad I got it taken care of.

Well if you're spreading disease I'd say both. Trouble is you can't wrap your noggin around a right to vote and the privilege of eating out. At this point I'd say vax or no entry to either. Don't think getting a shot is really prohibitive.

Eating out is now a "privilege" - what is wrong with you? Did you miss the

"Life, Liberty and Pursuit of happiness" part of the Declaration of Independence?

You must live a life of privilege, because dining out in a restaurant is a privilege due to increased cost compared to fixing food at home. I've heard about a "chicken in very pot", but never has a politician promised everyone will be able to dine out. I guess it would have been nice growing up in a household where you ate in restaurants so much you get the false impression it is a "right", but all it shows now is how out of touch you are with regular working class people.

A luxury is not the same as a privilege.

But you feel you're entitled to luxury?

If I can afford it, yes. That's how things work in America.


So buy a restaurant where you pay the workers enough to accept disease as a cost of doing business. Until then you are nothing more than a poser

Like I said in my post, they are an out of touch elitist.

These protests have been pretty small here in Switzerland. There was one protest that made me lol - it was a few dozen people wearing full-body, foot to head, hazmat suits. I was like "thank you for masking". I'm not sure if they made their point effectively.

mrwknd: I carry my passport with my covid vaccination card and my pocket US Constitution at all times.

What a pocket constitution may look like. Also, the only valuable thing the Federalist Society has ever produced since they stopped reading the Federalist Papers.

Bless your heart, rather than addressing the subject of my post (because it must have hit home), you are parsing semantics just like an out of touch elitist. You just have no idea what it is like to be poor.


An immigrant from the Soviet Union has no idea what it is to be poor?

You think we came here with our I'll-gotten Yukos Stock and a freight container of Caviar to sell in Brighton Beach?
