The Supreme Court is 007 in disguise. Except it needs no type firearm. The stroke of the pen suffices.
Insanity in one form or another prevails at all levels of government. Power not being properly exercised.
Proof is the Supreme Court decision yesterday which blocked Biden’s virus mandate for large employers. The mandate applying to employers of 100 employees or more regarding vaccine or testing of employees.
The majority decided against mandates based on their belief Congress had not authorized the Executive Branch to take sweeping actions under the authority of OSHA to address the continuing health crisis.
The majority wrote, the use of OSHA was “a significant encroachment in the lives and health of a vast number of employees.”
The vote was 6-3 with the far right conservative majority controlling.
The three dissenting liberal Justices wrote, the majority frustrated “the federal government’s ability to counter the unparalleled threat that COVID-19 poses to our nation’s workers.”
The dissent further went on to point out the decision could have gone either way depending on which solution the majority selected. The majority could have recognized the Court’s RESPONSIBILITY to safeguard lives. Instead the conservative six did what has come to be expected. Rendered a decision detrimental to the people, the little guy.
The nation is sick of the virus. The decision exemplifies the sickness which permeates many levels of government.
The number of new COVID cases will go crazy over the next year. Businesses will shut down because of the lack of employees. Hospitals and doctors will be underfunded because of lack of health insurance. Etc.
Not intending to be dramatic, blood will be on the hands of the courts also, the Supreme Court especially.
Query: How does the nation protect itself against a surging COVID?
I am beginning to wonder if the country can save itself from all the dangers besetting it if most in control don’t seem to care. If most who should care do not.
Another part of the decision involved the mandate as it applied to health care workers. The Court decided such mandates ok because they apply to workers at hospitals and other healthcare facilities that participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs.
An added personal observation. There is no happy uplifting song applicable to the decision. Only a requiem song for the dead. The Court’s decision guarantees hundreds of thousand deaths that did not have to occur.
The Court has given itself a license to kill.
So bad the decision, I cannot even advise my usual enjoy your day concluding statement.
