Progressives Still Pushing Hard For COVID Passports

At this point, how good are they? It’s like masking: most didn’t require the masks until months and months after the Chinese Flu started raging. Not that masks made any difference, and may have made it worse since people felt they could get closer. Progressives (nice Fascists) won’t give up on ideas, though

California bars start demanding proof of vaccinations as Delta surges. Will vax requirements spread?

Every American bargoer knows the ritual: Flash a valid ID at the door to prove you’re old enough to enter.

But as the hypercontagious Delta variant drives yet another nationwide surge in COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths, more and more customers — particularly in California — are now being required to show an additional document: their COVID-19 vaccination card.

And those who can’t are being turned away.

“We just started it because it’s clear that there’s just a segment of the population that is not vaccinated,” Janet Clyde, the owner of San Francisco’s Vesuvio Cafe, told SFGate this week. “And really until this settles down, I think it’s definitely safer for our staff and our clientele if we limit the indoors to people who have proof of vaccination.”

For months and months the bars in San Francisco (and LA and NYC, which are mentioned in the story, with bars either going to requiring or thinking about it) worked without vaccine passports/proof of vaccination. Now they want it? Which is interesting, considering that most of the vaccines have low rates of stopping people from getting the Indian, er, sorry, Delta variant. Pfizer is about 39% effective. Moderna is not much better. Astra Zenica is about 65%, but, that is used in Europe. So, people can still get it, it’s just that the chance of people getting really sick is low.

We need COVID-19 mandates to reach herd immunity. Start by requiring vaccine proof to fly.

America is at a COVID-19 crossroads. For the first time since the highly effective vaccines became widely available in the spring, the new case rate is back on the rise due to the spread of the more contagious delta variant and the stalled effort to vaccinate people in many parts of the country.

According to medical experts, reaching herd immunity will require that 70% to 90% of the U.S. population be fully vaccinated. But despite having enough vaccines available to inoculate every eligible American age 12 and up, just under 50% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated.

President Joe Biden and COVID czar Jeff Zients deserve tremendous credit for making the COVID-19 vaccines widely available and bringing focus and discipline to the White House pandemic dysfunction they inherited from former President Donald Trump. But a reliance on incentives and awareness can only get us so far, especially when some irresponsible politicians have been stoking vaccine skepticism and outright hostility.

These were the same people who said Operation Warp Speed, spearheaded by Donald Trump and his people, would fail, and that we wouldn’t have vaccines for at least a year or two.

To get to herd immunity within a reasonable time frame, the Biden administration is going to need to add to its arsenal some targeted vaccine mandates — and the obvious first step is to require proof of vaccination when embarking on an airplane.

Why are liberals taking fossil fueled flights in the first place?

Nowhere in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights will conservatives find a right to infect others with a deadly disease. In addition to defending our civil liberties, government is responsible for promoting the general welfare and protecting citizens from harm. No rational person considers requiring a license to drive a car or fly a plane a form of tyranny.

As usual, Progressives, and both the authors are hardcore Progressives, are misreading the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, which are all against the federal government doing Authoritarian things.

That’s why it is deeply unpatriotic for anti-vaxxers to feed the public misinformation about the efficacy and safety of vaccines. It’s also reckless. More than 99% of people dying from COVID-19 are unvaccinated, according to Surgeon General Vivek Murthy.

When Progressives talk about patriotism, watch your freedom. Because they want to shut it down. And this is pushing for government censorship. Making vaccination status mandatory on airplanes is just a step towards a national mandate. Remember, we were all flying before on the planes with no vaccines, shoved in like sardines as normal, sitting right next to each other. And they all said it was perfectly safe.

Canada’s vaccine passport won’t come until December, at the earliest

Leaked presentations reveal that Canada won’t have a national Covid-19 vaccine passport system until December 2021, at the earliest. A total lack of national infrastructure, however, means that could be delayed even further.

The internal PowerPoint presentation, prepared by the Treasury Board of Canada, reveals that even more than a year after the global pandemic hit, Canada still lags other countries in developing a system to issue and recognize proof of immunity to Covid-19.

What would be the point in implementing one 5 months from now, at the earliest? Other than more governmental control? Might Canadians protests? People in France went ballistic Saturday over the passage of vaccine mandates and passports. Germany is divided on doing what France did. Maryland is considering implementing a passport system. I still say you should get the vaccine, but, if you don’t that’s on you. If you want to be out and about and take the chance, that’s your decision. Government shouldn’t be the ones making it for you.

    Meanwhile:

    People across the globe are standing up and fighting against China flu lockdowns and vaccine mandates a mere 477 days since being told we need only “15 days to flatten the curve.”

    We’re Not Gonna Take It
    Anti-riot cops clashed with protestors in central Paris, using tear gas to break up angry mobs that are tired of useless lockdowns, immunity passports, and a possible forced vaccination plan for healthcare workers. Over 100,000 people took to the streets to show their disdain for the COVID restrictions, including “COVID-Free” letters allowing them to enter restaurants and theaters.

    Hey Hairy, either the vaccine works and you’re safe or your government Junta and Fauci and all the media have been lying to you. You have walked around your entire worthless life among people with “cooties” and you’re still here. Allowing a bunch of communist loving fanatics to panic your poor psyche over a flu is not only stupid but you are killing our country. Frankly I’d rather you get sick from the cooties than the entire country go down the shitter because of the cure.

    You fascist/commies on the left are determined to push every button of Free people from Wuhan to AGW to fake White supremacy until something finally bursts and we’re in a civil war. Why don’t you just leave America if you hate it and Americans so fukin much or at least separate into your own leftist hell hole and leave the real Americans the fuk alone?
