Covid & The CON

Legitimate concern over mandate made worse by the CON.

A couple of our favorite subjects collide.

Backstory: early in the summer, a group of concerned citizens presented the Oakland County Board of Commissioners with an
anti-discrimination resolution to ban medical discrimination (related to vaccine mandates) within the boundaries of the county. Several other counties in Michigan have successfully passed similar resolutions.

For months, the BOC has refused to vote on the resolution– resulting in an ever-growing attendance and public comment section at each meeting which the BOC has never experienced before.

This has been a testament to the mobilization of the people, but also the blatant disregard of local politicians to the people they represent. What is happening in Oakland County — specifically to the medical workers — is both inspiring and alarming.

This video from yesterday shows Katie Kirn, a nurse with the Henry Ford health system–one of the largest hospital systems in Michigan rightfully resisting the jab, but feeling pressure that she is likely to lose her job if she does not comply with their demands. The problem however, is that this particular industry is regulated and protected by the state in a way that requires her to take her decision a little more seriously.

Where else could she go?

End the CON – and this nonsense stops cold.
