Dems should point blame at themselves
Engrossing is the thought that the Republican Party is in certain decline, as some have ascertained in these morsels of such intellect printed in this periodical.
Now the attack bolstered by our wonderfully left leaning TV news regarding Elise Stefanik and her catapulting career as something she obtained by riding the coattails of former President Trump is yet another abhorrent belief by a party consumed with Donald Trump and still bemused by their loss in 2016.
It’s led by the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and of course, Joe Biden. Democrats cannot be serious, can they?
We are caressing a notion that people like punch-drunk Liz Cheney can’t possibly be replaced at the Republicans’ choice due to her own reckless statements which connive more with Democrats than the party she helped lead.
Please; she created her own desertion.
Now we have real issues like bail reform and defunding the police, inflation on just about everything, and a crisis at our border.
The Green New Deal, China and North Korea, along with Russia laughing at us yet again, but all we hear of is still about Donald Trump? Wake up, America.
We now have the most spineless president I can ever remember being in office, a Democrat.
Yet, the blame is still Trump’s. That is rich!
So as Israel continues to fight alone, I wonder where our president is.
Will he help our friend in that region? I doubt he has the guts.
Elise would, I guarantee you that.
No mandates are allowed for vaccine
I disagree completely with your May 15 editorial (“SUNY staff should get vaccine, too”) on mandating a covid vaccine for all SUNY employees.
First, an emergency use authorization (experimental vaccine) cannot be mandated, not ever, per its own legal framework, until the vaccines receive full approval.
The governor can’t mandate the shots for SUNY students until they are fully approved either, and his attempt at this will fail in court.
Cuomo recently even acknowledged that he is not allowed to mandate any of the experimental covid vaccines, for K-12 students, for this reason.
Second, there’s a liability shield for the vaccine manufacturers and for the people administering the shots, per recent federal law.
So, you can’t sue the drug companies or the person who gives you the shot, even if you die from the shot.
But you can sue SUNY if they mandate the shot and you get sick or die from it.
SUNY, and any other employer, is liable for any adverse vaccine side effects including deaths, if they mandate it.
That’s why it’s a stupid idea for any business to mandate a vaccine. They’ll go bankrupt.
DNA and mRNA vaccines have never been widely distributed before.
There’s no short-term or long-term safety data available.
It’s literally illegal for the government to mandate these experimental drugs.
I simply can’t see how your pro-vax-mandate position is legal, or how it makes sense for any business.
