In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Judge blocks Biden vaccine mandate for federal employees

It’s good the judiciary is using common sense and blocking these mandates. Because if they didn’t, we’d start getting used to the idea that the government can mandate anything it wants.

That’s what’s going on with Covid. Government getting license to creep into our lives.

According to Fox News:

A federal judge in Texas Friday blocked the federal government from enforcing President Biden’s vaccine mandate for federal employees, arguing that he didn’t have the authority to do so “with the stroke of a pen and without input from Congress.”

Biden has pushed several different iterations of vaccine mandates in recent months, including one for large businesses which the Supreme Court blocked and another for healthcare workers which it allowed to go into effect.

Judge Jeffrey Vincent Brown of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas Friday ruled against the administration on a separate mandate generally applying to federal employees.

“While vaccines are undoubtedly the best way to avoid serious illness from COVID-19, there is no reason to believe that the public interest cannot be served via less restrictive measures than the mandate, such as masking, social distancing, or part- or full-time remote work,” Brown wrote. “Stopping the spread of COVID-19 will not be achieved by overbroad policies like the federal-worker mandate.”

  1. Love Brown’s statement about OVERBROAD policies. That’s exactly the problem with the federal government — they are making a federal case out of everything!!

  2. What a worthless judge….

    “While vaccines are undoubtedly the best way to avoid serious illness from COVID-19…” NO!!!!!!! How about whether or not vaccines are the best way, free people must be free… Or actually this…. .The best way, undoubtedly, is to have a healthy immune system, do not carry one of the many co-morbidities — that is — be healthy and you won’t need a vaccine.

    This is madness.

    Live Free or Die!

      1. We begin to die when we stop being free…. “Give me liberty or give me death” was not some made up quote for middle school history….

        My lack of vaccine is not making people die. Their lack of healthiness is making them die — and regardless if that statement is true or not — freedom is about being free. Mandates are wrong — Mandates to eat 3 veggies a day… or Mandates to not drink 32 ounce sodas…. or anything are wrong. And… when this is 20 years down the road — the science — if there is such a thing in 20 years — will be clear that this was a tragic act of tyranny that people chose to accept.

        I see obese and morbidly obese people eating X, Y, and Z — they die at a higher rate each year than this virus (of course they get counted in COVID19 numbers anyway) — I let smokers smoke, unhealthy eaters eat that way and on and on and on.

        Freedom is not something that needs some sort of benevolent or good-intentioned dictatorship to operate. Freedom is an absolute.
