Governor Cuomo's Cruel Legacy
Safeminds: Infant Gut Microbiome and Fear Response

Mmm, mmm, Good?

Alphabet soup jobNote: How are you dealing with vaccination mandates in your company? Maybe you're already vaccinated. Do you feel safe? As if you have dodged a bullet? Maybe you're not vaccinated. Do you feel pressured in order to keep your livelihood? These aren't easy choice for most folks.  Did the Biden Administration think more than a step or two ahead to the ramifications of this layer of rules and punishments that will impact not only health, but also mental health, and will likely build a dangerous level of resentment. The mandates could be a recipe for workplace violence.  And then those who are not electing vaccination will be demonized further.  I have read comments all over social media saying "Good! Let them get fired! They are idiots! Selfish! They deserve to die."  A slippery slope to sanctioned trouble.

From CNN Business yesterday, iconic American brands Coca Cola, Kellogg and Campbell's Soup asked questions.

New York (CNN Business) The trade group that represents consumer brands including Coca-Cola (KO), Kellogg (K) and Campbell Soup (CPB) fired off a letter to President Joe Biden on Monday with a laundry list of questions about his new vaccine mandate.

In the letter, Consumer Brands Association CEO Geoff Freeman called for "immediate clarity" on the administration's new Covid-19 Action Plan.

That plan, unveiled last week, caught some in the business world off guard because it includes an emergency rule from the Labor Department that calls for all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their entire workforce is vaccinated or regularly tests negative for Covid-19. Biden officials have said companies could face penalties of up to $14,000 per violation.

The Consumer Brands Association — which represents the $2.1 trillion food, beverage and consumer products industry that employs 2.1 million workers — urged federal agencies to "move quickly, anticipate challenges, promptly answer questions" and partner with businesses to implement the new plan.

"The Consumer Brands Association and our member companies stand ready to partner with you in getting Americans vaccinated," Freeman wrote.

The letter to Biden included a "small sampling" of questions that have surfaced among business leaders, including:
What is considered documentation for proof of vaccination and how will booster shots factor into compliance?
Will the requirements only apply to vaccines that are fully approved by the FDA?
Does the government plan to centralize vaccination tracking?
What are the consequences of falsifying one's vaccination status or test results?
What is considered suitable documentation for a negative test result?
Should employees choose not to vaccinate, is the company or employee responsible for securing and paying for testing?

Thanks for the clarification and all of your hard work! This will make an excellent link to get the word out on this vital topic. The science is NOT settled.

Emmaphiladelphia,

It's been peer reviewed and accepted for publication. This is a pre-proof, which means it has not been fully proofed. The proofing process provides the author a chance to correct any typos, and mainly to get the references in the official journal format. The text posted is final; my remaining task is to convert the references from author-date format to numerical order format.

Wow!
Thanks for posting. I am still reading through it. This is a much needed study topic. Is anyone currently peer reviewing it? This info needs to get out to the public.

Thank you, RNK.

Like Coca Cola and Kellogg’s ever cared about anyone’s health. What a joke.

Small world Gary!
15 million people left the Appalachian region- and when they left the government bought up all the and made a large national park. Some times I think the real beginning of humanity is not the Garden of Eden in Africa - but here in Kentucky. Well maybe this region is really the Eden of America? LOL.

Emma; that the best way every to explains the whole thing of what the FDA has approved and the bait and switch , and why it matters.

Wow! Word about FDA licensed "Comirnaty" Covid jab is getting out fast:

Questions to ask employers who mandate COVID vaccine
How do you explain the spike in deaths in almost-fully-vaccinated Israel?

"For one, an employer could be asked to delay the requirement, pending availability of the only FDA-approved product, labeled Comirnaty. Orient explains that the vaccine approved by the FDA is different than the Pfizer vaccine issued under emergency use authorization. Or better yet, she says, wait until the completion of clinical trials on myocarditis in 2027.

In addition, Orient says, employers should consider the data from Israel showing twice as many COVID deaths in 2021 compared to 2020, before the vaccines were available. Israel has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world."

LET'S HAVE A CONTEST!

I went to a national grocery/pharmacy chain store and asked the pharmacist if they had the FDA licensed BioNTech Comirnaty shot in stock. She didn't know what I was talking about. I said it was the one Biden talked about on TV. She said they only carried Moderna. I said that that was the old experimental EUA shot and that I ONLY wanted the FDA licensed one in case I was injured by the jab. I said I could then sue Pfizer/BioNTech directly in a regular court of law with a jury trial and there would be no cap on the payout. My lawyer would have discovery, which could help prove my case. She then got her boss and I asked her the same thing. She seemed to know exactly what I was talking about, but just kept repeating that they ONLY had the Moderna shot. I asked if they could order the FDA licensed Comirnaty and she would only repeat that they only had the Moderna vaccine and that I should try another pharmacy. I said that I had not been able to get it at other ones near by. I asked if the President had lied about the availability of this product. She smiled and shrugged her shoulders and repeated that they only carried Moderna. I said that I would not take an experimental vaccine and left.

HERE IS YOUR CHALLENGE:
Go to your local pharmacies and ask if they have the Pfizer BioNTech Comirnaty shot (vaccine) in stock. You must use that exact wording. If they happen to say yes, ask them to check and see if the vial is labeled "Comirnaty". If it isn't, it isn't the FDA licensed product. All the other jabs are EUA (experimental) and are informed consent only. Because of this, the manufacturers have LIABILITY PROTECTION from the Federal government and the citizen has a very limited CICP to "cover" injuries, if you are lucky. It is hard to get and has a low payout cap. You cover legal costs and you only have one year to file. These shots are BUYER BEWARE.

If you find a pharmacy, doctor's office, school clinic, or pop-up vaccine clinics that actually have "Comirnaty" labeled jabs, then please post the details here. I am betting no one can get one in the U.S. You might find a Pfizer BioNTech Covid 19 EUA, but it is NOT the same as the FDA licensed "Comirnaty". They claim the formulation is the same, BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME CONSUMER PROTECTION. Only the EUA protects the MANUFACTURER.

I would only want the product that the manufacturer is willing to stand behind in a regular court of law.
Tell your boss you will ONLY take the FDA licensed BioNTech Comirnaty "vaccine" for Covid 19.

LOOK FOR THE FDA LICENSED "Comirnaty" LABEL......

Local news today featured our little rural hospital, with our very own - our doctor in a mask for the first time. He is a very quiet and thoughtful man. He is a good doctor, but the luster in his eye, the enthusiasm for his work has been lacking lately.

The claim is that Rockcastle county is now the highest in the country for covid cases. We are number one? In the whole country? Really? us?

We also have only a 30 percent vaccination rate too.

The National Guards have been called in by the governor to come in an help at our little hospital They are here for support, cleaning the rooms, janitorial duties and what not. Our governor is a (Democrat Beshear) that last year had people arrested for sitting in their cars, out in the church parking lot, listening to the sermon over the loud speakers. So I got no trust in him. Legislation took all his emergency powers away from him four, or so months ago.

I wonder where else in this country do they have a low vaccination rate, and have the national guard called in?

Perhaps they are going to teach us a lesson, one county at a time?

Five questions,

Those are great! It’s interesting, back during the Covid relief stimulus negotiations Republicans fought hard to garner liability protections for companies for injuries due to outbreaks. Now those same protections will be exploited for vaccine injuries. The media is definitely flouting the workplace mandate issue as partisan, however, as is typical of America, protecting corporations while devastating the powerless, makes everything bi-partisan.

Things are really starting to get nasty. You have to watch out for those college professors:

"A professor at Pennsylvania State University is facing multiple misdemeanor charges after he allegedly attacked a student who protested against the advocacy of COVID-19 vaccination mandates.

The incident occurred on Aug. 27, when faculty, students, and community members rallied at the center of Penn State campus and called on the university administrators to immediately issue a vaccine mandate. Student newspaper Daily Collegian reported that the event attracted counterprotesters who held up signs toward the back of the rally attendees.

A video posted to Twitter by Centre County Report appears to show a male, later identified as 36-year-old Walter Oliver Baker, trying to take a sign by force from one of the counterprotesters before eventually pulling him to the ground.

The counterprotester was later identified as Avi Rachlin, the leader of Penn State Resistance, a student group focusing on opposing mask and vaccine mandates on campus. Rachlin was seen escorted away by campus police with blood on his face, likely as the result of the incident.

The campus police record suggests that Baker was charged with simple assault, a second-degree misdemeanor; disorderly conduct, a third-degree misdemeanor; and harassment, a summary offense under Pennsylvania law. The most serious of those charges is the second-degree misdemeanor, with penalties of up to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine upon conviction.

Penn State lists Baker as an assistant professor of English and African American Studies who “specializes in Critical Race Theory.” According to his faculty biography, Baker’s areas of research include “critical ethnic studies, nineteenth-century American literature and culture, critiques of racial capitalism and settler colonialism, and histories of African, Native, Chicanx, and working-class liberation movements.”

Five questions for employers

Five questions to ask your employer if you are notified that you must get the COVID PLI (potentially lethal injection):


1) If I get sick after getting the PLI, will I need to use my remaining sick leave/PTO (paid time off), or will you (employer) cover my sick days out of your pocket?


2) If I am seriously injured as a result of getting the PLI and cannot resume my work duties, will I be eligible for workers compensation?


3) If I pass away as a result of receiving the PLI, will my family receive benefits from my employer provided life insurance policy?


4) What will you (employer) do with my private personal information concerning my vaccination status? Who will you share it with? How long will it be retained? When can I request that it be deleted? How will you protect the confidentiality and security of my private personal information while it is in your possession and control?


5) What is the process for submitting a request for a medical and/or religious exemption?

The gentleman below didn't dodge the bullet, I'm sorry he was terminated after the Army-Navy game. Personally, I feel like there's a rifle pointed at my head and it could go off at any time, all they need to do is pull the trigger. And they may. I feel like I need to continue to be a conscientious objector, avoid any type of violence, prepare to be fired, and wait for the vaccinated people to become terribly sick from Pfizer's vaccine. In one way , time is on my side, for after two doses of Pfizer's toxin, neither politicians nor their families will fare well, and this nonsense will end. One more thing, I feel like my employer is trying to kill me.

Maybe I am wrong .. but .. I always thought FASCISM was a system where private corporations willingly become enforcers of Government decrees? If not Fascism …. what is it called when private corporations become enforcers of laws decreed by the government?
