I can't find a live stream on YouBoob at all, though plenty of ended streams. If anyone can find Twit links, that'd be helpful.

It seems Michiganders aren't too pleased with this vaccine mandate business, and are (were?) protesting at the capitol today.



LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)– As states, companies, and governing bodies discuss the idea of a COVID-19 vaccine mandate, those against them want to make their voice heard at the Michigan Capitol.

Hundreds gathered Friday afternoon at the Capitol steps around 3 p.m. for what is scheduled to be a two-hour rally.

www.wlns.com...

There's an active live stream in the link, and there still appears to be a crowd, albeit a small one, hanging around. Maybe this is worth keeping an eye on, maybe not. I just figured it would be worth mentioning despite the news being a day late & a dollar short here on the timing (deliberate, I know), and also considering the protests abroad.

How sad that it comes to this that some idiots on social media push their dangerous opinion and so many have insufficient discernment to realize that anyone can say just about anything on social media and people believe it more than credible sources.

Thankfully, there are places and people where they are educated and rational, and a mandate is not necessary.

Seat belts - hell no! Anti-smoking campaigns - hell no! They won't even let people play some games, like Russian Roulette- Not on my watch!

Your credible sources are propaganda - simple, you do not get to decide what is and is not credible - do YOU understand this simple concept?? - thankfully there are places and people where they are educated and lateral thinkers such that FORCING people to take a vaccine leads to authoritarianism.

Here in the states, some value their rights and freedoms.

What is sad is that folks who share your innate need to lord over others and just can't rationalize why someone wouldn't want to be told to do something especially when bereft of credibility.

Now if New Zealand had the same zeal for protecting their kids. New Zealand lost more kids to suicide this year than COVID. The suicide rate for teens is ridiculously high for such a developed nation, especially among its native population


www.stuff.co.nz...

New Zealand was given an 'F for failure' on child obesity and youth suicide in Unicef report
‘Woeful’ result puts the country in the bottom 15% for overall child wellbeing which Ardern says reflects the previous government’s underinvestment

New Zealand’s youth suicide rate is the second-worst at 14.9 deaths per 100,000 adolescents, just in front of Lithuania, which is the worst in the developed world. This rate is more than twice the average among the 41 OECD countries surveyed.

It’s a sobering statistic and one that keeps Unicef chief executive Vivien Maidaborn working into the night, studying policies and looking at initiatives to save our children.

There in the States, is where it is happening.

Ain't happenin' here, where everyone knows the value of a public health campaign. We are free to choose to not vaccinate, if we want. The government offers it free of charge, but turning up is still voluntary.

Maybe those social media idiots in Michigan remember when "credible sources" told them their water was safe to drink.

Seatbelts are not a liquid that those in power are forcing you to put into your body.

I see some irony in this statement.

The thing that you seem to fail to comprehend is that, here in America, there is still a large number of people who like their freedoms to remain intact. The concept of freedom has been bastardized (over the past century, mostly...the past 50 years, definitely), but some of us still prefer to exercise our first-amendment right to call out for such preservation of freedoms.

And for the record, no, seat belts should not be mandated, educational campaigns against smoking are fine if they're factual (taxing them into oblivion as an effort to force cessation and making it criminal to resell single cigarettes because the state doesn't get their tax money, not so much).

ZERO mandates surrounding COVID are necessary, as you imply. It would appear that you lack clarity of the bigger picture in regard to the preservation of personal freedoms AND the true severity of COVID-19.

And the fact that you make light of a government forcing adults to wear seatbelts shows the degree to which you do not think deeply.
