The Biden Thing must be chewing the rug at the ersatz Oval Office by now. The news having reached his hearing aides that the Big Three have backed down on their prior threat to require Jabs in order for union employees to keep their jobs.
They will, however, continue to demoralize them – and pressure them to receive the anointing – by requiring the Unjabbed to “mask” forever, amen. And salaried employees who haven’t got a union to protect their interests against the corporation’s interests still face the Sophie’s choice – their health or their job.
According to Reuters, about 80 percent of GM, Ford and Stellantis (the combine that includes Dodge, Chrysler, Ram trucks and Jeep) have chosen the former for the sake of keeping the latter. It’s the kind of choice no person in a free society ought to be forced to make – precisely because it means we no longer live in a free society.
Some will say: But no one is forced to work for these companies; they are freeeeeeee to choose to not work there, if the terms and conditions seem objectionable to them. This is an imbecility that ought not to require deconstruction but does – precisely because there are a lot of imbeciles on the loose.
In the first place, these terms and conditions do not flow freely – without duress. They flow from Washington, which is applying the duress.
With the object of the latter being to render it impossible to work anywhere, without submitting to the loathsome decree that demands one surrender one’s body for experimentation as the condition of continued employment.
Re-stated, the objection is that Washington intends to eliminate free choice, by leaving the only choice:
To be Jabbed – or be unemployed.
To work – or to starve.
Everything that comes from Washington is by definition not free since Washington is force. When it “asks” it is telling. This is the art of the mobster, a form of life slightly more evolved than the ones scurrying around the federal city, who lack even the mobster’s earthy honesty regarding his trade.
They have become the spider’s legs – and fangs – manipulating the victims caught in Washington’s web. Which, interestingly enough, has also captured them.
These corporate tools have lost their autonomy even as they work to eviscerate the autonomy of those lower-down the victim hierarchy. The great corporate tools are just as beholden, only better paid. But there’s no amount of money sufficient to compensate for the loss of one’s autonomy, bodily and otherwise.
Once sold, it’s gone.
Still, the majority of people who work for these car companies are unionized manufacturing workers – without whom, no cars come off the assembly lines. It is no small thing that they are refusing to be anointed – because they have the power to do it. More precisely, to refuse it without being shown the door.
This explains why the Big Three have backed down.
But the courts will decide – or rather, will choose a side.
For now, the unions can “get away” with telling the car companies – and the Biden Thing – to take their Jabs and shove them, because there is no law requiring them and because the law does not support the “mandating” of them by mere decree of the Biden Thing, enforced not by the legal system but the regulatory system (OSHA).
All therefore hinges on whether the courts side with the Biden Thing – anointing it with the legal authority to simply decree that everyone must be Jabbed in order to keep their job. Which is the same thing as saying – submit to the Jab else be starved out, since it is hard to eat when you haven’t got money for food.
The Biden Thing, in plain language, intends to kill off those who refuse to be Jabbed – in the name of “health,” an irony lost on many.
Thank god for the unions, which can organize a counterweight power to this power putsch by the Biden Thing and the things that have become his willing accomplices.
Which brings up another irony, as regards the salaried employees, who once-upon-a-time considered themselves better-off than those poor union schmucks who worked on the lines. They wore suits and sat at desks, earned a higher salary, enjoyed choicer perks.
It is very easy to apply the strong-arm to a single employee, who cannot stand against an entire company. But an organized group of employees can bring it all to a sand-in-the-gears screeching halt.
The next thing they ought to do is take off those god-damned “masks” – and dare the company to insist they put them back on.
