How the vaccine will help you!!


As a small business owner, and American citizen, I try to pay attention to the dealings of the government parties. The latest issue that has been talked about a lot is the budget reconciliation to stop a government shutdown. In House Resolution 5376 there is one section that is a growing concern for business owners, primarily those that are listed under the Biden Administrations new OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard regarding COVID-19. This ETS is said to mandate that any company with 100 or more employees are to require vaccination or weekly testing of all employees as seen in this CBS report broadcasted on September 9th, 2021.

With the Biden Administration using the Occupational Safety & Health Administration to force American citizens to get vaccinated, many companies are being placed in a very precarious position. And now with the proposed changes to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that are in HR 5376, more and more companies are going to be forced to either comply with this OSHA ETS or downsize their staffing. Neither of which is fair to employers nor employees in the United States.

The proposed changes basically add a zero to all penalties in 29 USC 666 section 17 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. In Subsection A they are proposing changing the maximum penalties from $70,000 to $700,000 and they are proposing changing the minimum penalties from $5,000 to $50,000. Subsection A currently reads as:

“Any employer who willfully or repeatedly violates the requirements of section 5 of this Act, any standard, rule, or order promulgated pursuant to section 6 of this Act, or regulations prescribed pursuant to this Act, may be assessed a civil penalty of not more than $70,000 for each violation, but not less than $5,000 for each willful violation.”

As a current and previous business owner this is very alarming to me. To put it in non-lawyer terms as I understand it, they are basically saying you will comply, or we will slap your business with penalties until you do. For a lot of businesses that are trying to recover from the number of mandates and shutdowns this administration has already imposed on the United States, this could be the blow that shuts down a lot of companies for good around the country.

It is estimated that more the 80 million workers in the private sector will be forced to either take the vaccine or loss their job due to this ETS from OSHA. The Biden Administration has already mandated that all federal employees and contractors must be fully vaccinated or face job/contract loss. This mandate alone has affected tens of millions of American citizens, and if this administration keeps on the track that they are, we will see a huge spike in unemployment due to these mandates.

This writer’s ultimate question is, when did it become the governments place to make medical decisions for the American people? Nowhere in the history of this great nation has the government EVER mandated or pushed a vaccine as hard as this administration is pushing this one. Nowhere in the history of this great nation has the government trampled on the American citizens rights the way this administration is.

The problem is not that people are not taking the COVID-19 virus seriously, the problem is that this administration is looking at the wrong solution to the virus. This administration is under the assumption (or at least it is what is being portrayed to the country) that if everyone gets vaccinated, then the COVID-19 virus will just go away. Looking at the science, the numbers, and the reports every week tells a very different story all together. We see reports come out that so many people are being hospitalized, but these reports are incomplete because they are not telling us how many of these people are fully vaccinated. They appear to be purposely leaving data out of the reports that are given to the American public.

I look at the daily reports from my local area, I look at how many people are fully vaccinated on each report. As of yesterday (10-1-2021), there were 4,079,000 cases reported in the state of Texas with 66,184 deaths attributed to this virus. That is a 1.6% death rate or a 98.4% rate of survival in the state of Texas. In my county there have been 24327 cases reported with 358 deaths attributed to this virus. This is a 1.5% death rate or a 98.5% rate of survival.

Looking at the numbers in my local county from July 1st, 2021 to October 1st, 2021 there have been a total of 6221 positive cases with 1022 of those cases being fully vaccinated individuals and another 282 being partially vaccinated. On that same report they list a total of 116 deaths being attributed to this virus with 20 being fully vaccinated and another 6 being partially vaccinated. This means that 17.5% of the positive cases in my county are fully vaccinated individuals and 17% of the deaths are fully vaccinated individuals.

This raises another question, if these vaccines are 90% affective as the CDC and the government would lead us to believe, why are 17% of the local deaths fully vaccinated individuals? These numbers do not add up, even to a minimally educated individual like myself. If these vaccines were 90% affective, we would not be seeing 17% of positive cases being fully vaccinated individuals. These numbers tell me that these vaccines are not working as the CDC and the government would lead us to believe.

So why are trying to force everyone get vaccinated? Why is the Biden administration pushing this vaccine so hard? Why is the Biden Administration pushing so hard for companies to either force their employees to comply or be fined at an ungodly rate? These are the questions that the American people should be asking themselves!!
