It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Part IIOctober 25, 2021 | by Eriс

To have a nation with borders and immigration laws is “unconstitutional,” according to a radical Florida judge. If this is not a wake-up call about the irremediable corruption of the judiciary, then nothing ever will be. A federal judge struck down parts of a Florida law aimed at banning local governments from establishing sanctuary city policies, arguing in part that the law is racially motivated and that it has the support of hate groups.
You would never guess what parts of the U.S. population are most resistant to alluring vaccination propaganda. Our black citizens are the largest group of resistors. But who is the other? People with Ph.D. degrees, the high achievers and the smartest members of our society. Take heed, they understand something the rest of the herd doesn’t.
If you are unvaccinated in New York City, kiss goodbye any public places and events – like theaters, museums and gyms. Restaurants are permitted to host you only in “outdoor dining sections” (plywood huts built on the streets or parking lots adjacent to the establishments). If you ride NYC subway or bus without the mask, the fine is $50. When you want to fly overseas and possess no proof of vaccination, PCR test done 72 hours prior to the trip would cost you around $200 per person (ditto for the return trip).
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) introduced a bill that would require all travelers to be fully vaccinated against the coronavirus or test negative for the illness before any domestic air travel. The bill, the U.S. Air Travel Public Safety Act, would require the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration to develop industry-wide regulations for airlines to verify that passengers have either been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, tested negative for COVID-19 prior to travel, or have fully recovered from a COVID-19 infection.
Makes a long-distance domestic car trip look like a bargain in every respect.
Posh Midtown Manhattan hotels that billed wealthy visitors 500-700 dollars per night before the pandemics are now charging double that amount (as told by a recent NYC business visitor). Tourist crowds are mostly gone. A lot of Manhattan hotels have been contracted by the City to house homeless riff-raff who do drugs, get into shouting matches in front of the open windows and throw junk onto the streets below. Imagine what it would take to make these places livable when the madness is over. The crime is up, up, up. Since it became legal to light up here, in the good building we live in one cannot escape the stench of marijuana – morning, day and night. Does anyone work anymore?
The answer is: probably not. There are many thousands of job openings, but not enough takers. Statistically, for every employee there are now 1.5 job openings. People got so corrupted by the large unemployment payments (with added benefits during the pandemics they were getting $1,100 per person per week), they never rejoined the work force. In jobs where clients are interacted by phone, many employees demand to work from homes most of the work-week and wouldn’t have it any other way. We hear that in some medical practices (like family counseling) clients refuse to visit the offices nowadays. They got so used to phones. And the practices must accept that or lose business. Computer programmers comfortably work remotely. But for many openings across all industries, where interactions with others are a requirement, they wouldn’t consider unvaccinated job candidates.
At $19/hr fast food restaurants can’t find workers and are forced to offer drive-through service only! $19/hr translates into $36,500 salary. Many of these “burger-flippin’ “workers” earning $8-9/hr have been demonstrating/protesting/fighting to make $15/hr – before the pandemics. Now they don’t want to work for even more… This is so messed up.
The recent Biden’s Labor Dept projected 500,000 new jobs this quarter – but only 194,000 were added. Unemployment fell from 5.8% to 4-something, only because 184,000 people dropped off unemployment benefits. But those 184,000 are not looking for work.
CNN viewership is DOWN 75% as Biden’s approval numbers are dropping into the 30% area! Fox News is setting viewer records.
Northwell Health, which employs more than 76,000 people as New York State’s largest healthcare provider, has fired 1,400 of its workers after they refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, the company announced. They plan to hire out-of-state and even foreign medical personnel. In the time of personnel shortages, they fire people and can’t get replacements, and it’s not just in medicine, but all over. The Mandate to be vax’ed to be employed by a company with over 100 people is backfiring! Instead of getting vax’ed people are quitting. One smart American corporation, we hear, with 100+ people fired all vaccinated personnel and retained only the unvaccinated, with salary increases for all who remained. This way Biden’s Mandate can’t force anyone to be vaccinated; those vaccinated can simply find jobs elsewhere.
Did you know that hidden in the 3.5T bill there’s a mandate for $700,000 fines for businesses with un-vaxxed employees? Per each employee!
If you are unvaccinated, many hospitals would refuse you for elective surgical procedures. Colorado hospital just denied organ transplant to a un-vaxxed woman, pretty much dooming her to death. Surely, to a become court battle in the near future.
Employees of the Ochsner Health Center in Louisiana were informed they would need to pay a monthly fee if their spouse has not been vaccinated. $200, to be exact.
Natural gas prices are going up in Europe to the levels unseen before, skyrocketing five-fold by the end of September 2021 and have no intention of stopping, it seems. This is partially due to Gazprom (Russian state corporation) pipeline blackmail; and not re-supplying its European clients with natural gas for the winter. China is also at fault. It is trying to get the industries off coal and is sucking up every bit of available gas supply everywhere. The resulting “tsunami” will surely hit us here in some sector of our economy. Respective governments begin to view nuclear power in a much more positive light lately. On the other side, “green” sources of energy, as wind and solar, are great, but they don’t work 100% of the time. When there are no wind or sunlight, the customers are left cold. “Green energy” value to countries energy supplies is being reassessed by scientists. LNG (liquefied natural gas) supply from the USA and the Middle East begins to look like most welcome alternatives. Gas storage facilities are only partially full of this commodity for the upcoming winter. German TV is playing ads on how to keep oneself warm in winter, just in case.
