    Bill to Protect Californians’ Rights to Get Vaccinated and Protects Freedom of Speech Passes Asm. Public Safety Committee
    Bill to Protect Californians’ Rights to Get Vaccinated and Protects Freedom of Speech Passes Asm. Public Safety Committee


    It seems that California had to pass a bill to prevent people from being harassed when going to get their Covid 19 shot.

    Not that I'm a fan of mandates or extra laws but the simple fact that the sooner everyone gets vaccinated, the sooner I can stop wearing the damn mask.

    California is ahead of all the other states in reducing COVID. We need to allow for peaceful protests while making sure that they don't turn aggressive.

    All I gotta say is the media is doing its job making sure everyone turns against each other.

    That's naive. They are never going to let you stop wearing the mask. It's not about safety it's about compliance.

    It's true. For the good or for the bad.

    Not "silly"...."conspiratorial".
    I know many such people.
    They see plans within plans within plans.
    But not the simple danger of SARS-CoV-2.

    I support the cause but I don't support blocking people from getting vaccinated.

    Freedom of choice is a two way street

    Yep. Just emulate China.



    How long before unvaccinated people are welded inside their homes?

    That's simply not true as any person whom is truly pro-life should know.

    anywhere for vaccinated people.

    If they keep it up, I imagine at some point there will be a revolt.

    I'm not sure what that means. Do you trust your government to let go of control? Perhaps you should ask an Indian how that worked out for them.

    Interesting how these people who go on about "autonomy" and "personal choice" when it suits them are really into trying to tell others what to do.

    I am part Indian {Me'tis], so I well know the history.

    We have a government that has what we call "checks & balances", and a large part of this involves "oversight", which Trump & Co doesn't want right now, and yet you've repeatedly supported him. Trump was very much a part of "your govenment", thus your blanket statement about "your government" is very hypocritical to say the least.

    Masks save at least some lifes according to the research, and that we know with certainty, thus if you oppose mandates on them you are indeed pro-death.

    Maybe think about that the next time you're tempted to boast that you're "pro-life".

    You diverted instead of answering the question.

    Not with my last two sentences as you are picking & choosing positions in a highly partisan and disingenuous manner while claiming to be pro-life but in reality being pro-death on this issue.

    All governments issue mandates, so what about this do you not understand? The only serious question is "Are these X mandates legal and necessary?". If you're a Christian, then I would suggest being pro-life and encouraging people to get the vaccine and mask-up as I would expect that Jesus would be doing if he was physically here. If not, then you're simply being pro-death and doing the opposite of "love one another as I have loved you" per Jesus' most basic message. Misinformation is literally killing people in this country.

    So, are you going to be pro-life or pro-death? Your choice.
