    They did it… ! That wonderous state of CA

I can’t believe they actually did it.   COVID VACCINE requirement for school in LA.

I am beside myself.  These are children.  This is not even FDA  approved for adults except as emergency use.    It has not be tested in children.  WHO are much much less risk of complications, or death.   These kids will need to take a deadly vaccine sacrificing their life for mostly elderly vulnerable sickish people.   I myself being in my 50s with health conditions,  DO NOT and would not want children to take this FOR ME or anyone else.. I can watch out for myself.  Thank you.

The only small caveat,  required when it is available to them.  — It is not and will likely not be for at least a year — This is really premature …. BUT they are sending the signal loud and clear.

Wow,  I posted a smarmy prediction that this would happen a few days ago in the big Ivermectin thread.   The second half of my prediction was that “undocumented migrants” would end up exempt… lacking documentation generally as they do, they couldn’t be expected to produce documents proving vaccination.

Not sure whether to hope I’m right on this second point or not.  Since human health is at stake I think I’m on the side of anyone being able to dodge this thing any way they can if they want to.

In my province you have no right to ride a motorcycle without a helmet.   Then they made an exemption for Sikhs who have specific religious headdress that is physically incompatible with helmets.  All done in the name of “inclusiveness”.  Complete bullshit on the one hand, and yet if a person gets one of their rights back should I applaud even if the rights are unequally distributed among the populace?

Anyway, as Covid continues to play out I predict a complete collapse in respect for authority or “experts” going forward.  Its kind of sad but hopefully in the long run it leads back to a culture where individuals again take responsibility for their own well being and more importantly the content of their own minds.

    Emergency authorization = no mandatory vaccine requirement?

I was under the impression that because it was an emergency authorization given for the vaccines, institutions/authorities/whatever  were not allowed to make vaccinations mandatory. Is that not correct? Just wondering.

Helmets do help protect you, even if it’s wrong to force anyone to wear them (driving around in, say, Thailand helmet-less is fun but I was assuming an extra risk by doing so). The vaccine is designed to destroy and control you. There’s a big difference. This is like the argument of the Left: let’s make everybody equally poor so that we’re all equal on a level playing field.

    They did it… ! That wonderous state of CA Helmets

Helmets clearly protect the rider from serious head injuries. They are not foolproof but it is smart to wear them.

Should they be mandatory? Yes . Reason is especially in Canada should someone end up in the hospital because of a motorcycle accident the cost is borne by everyone. Increased injuries result in increase cost.

I don’t want to pay for someone else’s stupidity.

Now if said riders were to sign a waiver that they should be left wherever they are found and then there would be no additional costs to everyone else then okay. Freedom does come with a price. it always has

Mohammad,

I agree,  when the state bears the cost like with injury and health care,  they should have some say in your behaviors.  However, though , they need to prove that those behaviors actually increases costs or you should be able to get a waiver of exemption and bare them yourself.   For instance, you dont want a polio vaccine, and you get polio, oh well no free healthcare for you.. AND i am really ok with that..  And that is simple enough.

However, we should all be wearing helmets and knee pads in case we slip and fall at the local supermarket or shower at the motel or fall off a chair at the casino.  We cannot live in rubber padded rooms.  I actually believe a helmet is encumbering  of vision, so it actually makes more difficult ride a motor cycle.   But yeah , if you are going to get plowed over by some driver that didnt see you, you are screwed with or without helmet.. but for a state that pays the medical, yeah , i guess they would prefer you have a helmet.  Because, it will keep you alive long enough to donate your organs.
