OPINION|. Well, well, well, the last hope for America, the courts, have come through yet again.
If we want to stay in business as publishers who serve ads on our site we are not allowed to publish opinions that are anti ‘vaccine’. While I disagree with the policy, it’s not really an issue for us, seeing as we are NOT ‘anti vaccine’ … we are .
I thought the left was all about ‘choice’ … what am I missing? Personally, I am of the mind that everyone is smart enough to make their own decision as to whether or not they want to get inoculated or not.
Luckily the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals court agrees that the Constitutionality of a ‘vaccine mandate’ for businesses of 100 people or more is in question …
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – Attempts to chip away at OSHA’s vaccine mandate for companies with more than 100 employees saw success on Saturday, Nov. 6.
A federal panel ruled the mandate cannot be enforced after business owners across the South filed lawsuits with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
“Well, the OSHA mandate, first of all, is unconstitutional because it exceeds the authority that Congress gave to OSHA,” said Sarah Harbison with the Pelican Institute, which represents one of the business owners. “As I said earlier, OSHA is set up to respond to hazards that are in the workplace. That’s the authority that Congress has given them and they can’t exceed that authority.”
The mandate would have set a January deadline for companies to require workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or participate in weekly COVID tests. After that, the federal government would start issuing fines. The court’s ruling temporarily blocks any of that from happening. But Harbison said her clients are looking for a more permanent solution.
“We asked the court to first issue an emergency stay, which they did do. Second, we’ve asked that they issue a permanent injunction that would keep it from taking effect even after briefing and arguments are held,” she explained.
“After about 10 days, I believe, all of the circuit courts that received these challenges, their circuit numbers will be placed in a hopper and there will be a drawing, kind of like Powerball. And the court that will ultimately hear all of these challenges will be selected at random drawing,” said Harbison.
She believes this case has the momentum to make it all the way to the US Supreme Court and added if the courts don’t stop the president’s actions here, she’s worried what could come next.’
If you want to take the shot, go for it, bruh. You do you, all we ask is that you let me do me.
