Yesterday, about 500 Granite Staters gathered at the State House in Concord to protest Biden’s federal mandate of vaccines for unfavored classes of people (companies with more than 100 employees). Of course, Congress is EXEMPT from the vaccine mandate, and also from the mask mandate. Some are more equal, what what.
The NH legacy news weighed in, mostly focusing on the moment where people loudly expressed their frustration with Sununu, leadership, and a failure to take more definitive steps to curtail Biden’s overreach.
Read their coverage, but take it with a grain of salt since they seem incapable of discerning between “anti-mandate” and “anti-vax.”
My comment on a social media fight:
Brian Miller can I ask you why THIS virus, THIS time, is supposed to change the way society has worked forever? Before, people did not have this notion that *I* somehow have **an obligation** to KEEP YOU SAFE WHEN YOU LEAVE YOUR HOUSE. If you are concerned about contracting this virus (but not somehow terrified of the myriad of other communicable diseases out there–why?!?–legacy news and propaganda, but that’s another conversation), please take every precaution you deem necessary, including self-quarantining. Never before have we expected the healthy to sacrifice their lives and livelihoods for the sake of “society.” This notion is on its face socialism and unacceptable in a free society. If we sacrifice the idea of “MY BODY MY CHOICE” to “my body YOUR/government’s choice,” WE NO LONGER LIVE IN A FREE SOCIETY. Either we own ourselves and have agency and autonomy over our bodies, or, well, the dark days are truly here… If we concede this point, there will never be an end to it. The government, and its boot, will own you forever… I will resist this as long as I breathe and will continue to fight to keep us ALL free.
