Why dont we wait for say one kid to catch it before we go off the deep end? the 2 kids reported to have caught it lived with homo's, and possibly were being buggered by the bastards.

Health Care Workers Who Sued Over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Win $10 Million Settlement​



1659131693493.png

Health care workers protest against NorthShore University HealthSystem's vaccine mandate outside Evanston Hospital in Evanston, Ill., on Oct. 12, 2021.





A group of health care workers who sued their hospital over a COVID-19 vaccine mandate are slated to receive $10 million, according to a settlement agreement filed on July 29.


About a dozen workers at the NorthShore University HealthSystem in Illinois lodged the suit in October 2021, arguing that the facility was illegally not granting religious exemptions to the mandate.


After eight months of negotiations, the workers and NorthShore “have agreed to settle this case,” according to a memorandum filed in federal court.


Under the settlement’s terms, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 into a settlement fund for workers affected by its mandate—specifically, workers who between July 1, 2021, and Jan. 1, 2022, asked for a religious accommodation and were denied and either received a vaccine to avoid termination or were fired or resigned. About 473 workers fit under that category.


NorthShore will also adjust its vaccine mandate “to enhance its accommodation procedures for individuals with approved exemptions for sincerely held religious belief.”



Workers fired because they refused to get vaccinated due to their religious beliefs are eligible to apply for re-employment.


U.S. District Judge John Kness, the Trump appointee overseeing the case, was asked to approve the proposed settlement.


Liberty Counsel, the legal group representing the platiniffs, described the settlement as a first-of-its-kind for an action against a private employer who denied hundreds of requests for religious exemptions to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.


“The drastic policy change and substantial monetary relief required by the settlement will bring a strong measure of justice to NorthShore’s employees who were callously forced to choose between their conscience and their jobs,” Horatio Mihet, vice president of legal affairs at the group, said in a statement.

“This settlement should also serve as a strong warning to employers across the nation that they cannot refuse to accommodate those with sincere religious objections to forced vaccination mandates,” he added.

The whole point of building a wall is to deter people from crossing, with the implication that if someone did climb over they would be arrested and sent back at a min.

Obviously letting people climb over or walk around and doing nothing is ridiculous. But we live in ridiculous times.

then fuck building a wall. if you're going to construct something symbolic that "shouldn't be crossed" but is easily crossed by anyone with a tiny amount of resolve, just save the expense, lay a rope across the border and be done with it.

we're not patrolling the wall like it was east berlin, so we should just stop the dumbfuckery. in other words, get serious or don't. the wall is nonsense.

a useless wall is almost like a government giving their populace "sugar pills" a vaccine in the face of a pandemic so they feel safe, that they're being protected by their "leaders".... but that would never happen, right?

my triple-vaxxed sister and her husband are now suffering covid, and they're so taken in by the government line, they see it as normal/expected. somehow.

You hit it on the head..."you either get serious or you dont" we SHOULD get serious but we all know we wont.

NO ONE suffers covid anymore, they have a cold, there was a time when people considered an occasional illness to be barely worthy of a mention, now it's a life event that must be announced to the heavens like it's cancer.

It would be nice if your sister, etc would wise up and give up on the failed vax, but I'm sure you know they'll be lined up for the fall booster. Now with the monkeypox hysteria it's the same bullshit all over again, I saw a report telling people if they've had monkey pox they should not get the vaccine - which used to be commone sense and common behavior. Now the loonies are skeptical even of that.

If You Don't Believe A Wall Reduces The Number Of ILLEGALS Coming Into America, You Probably Believe The Sun Is Not Hot.

Ask A Border Patrol Agent If A Wall Is Effective.

Did You Ask Ronald Regan Why He Wanted The Berlin Wall Torn Down ?

You Won't See Any Security At The Wall With The Current Bird Brain We Have, Currently Occupying The White House.

1) an unmanned wall delays crossing by about 15 minutes, and blocks visibility of those attempts until they actually cross. duh.
2) Border Patrol Agents aren't getting it done, why would i ask them anything about what is effective?
3) its Reagan, not Regan
 
The reason they’re all assembled at the gap in the wall is because it’s so easy to go over the wall. Right?


did you expect them to assemble and try to climb a wall right next to a huge gap?

you close the "wall gaps" and its exactly as it was before, they can & will cross everywhere easily.

Yup. Making it more difficult (which you can't possibly dispute) means it's exactly like it was before.

They're traveling miles to go through the gaps but it won't affect anything.

The border wall Trump called unclimbable is taking a grim toll​

The journal JAMA Surgery offers one of the first attempts to measure injuries and deaths resulting from falls along new sections of the wall


AN DIEGO — In the trauma wards of this city’s major hospitals, patients from the border have arrived every day with gruesome injuries: skull fractures, broken vertebrae and shattered limbs, their lower extremities twisted into deranged angles.

The patients have fallen from new 30-foot segments of President Donald Trump’s border wall, a structure he touted as a “Rolls-Royce” that “can’t be climbed.” His administration built more formidable barriers in the San Diego area than anywhere else along the southern border, with miles of double-layer steel fencing, but that has not stopped more and more migrants from trying to scale it.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say they do not tally deaths and injuries resulting from such falls. But new statistics published Friday by University of California at San Diego physicians in the journal JAMA Surgery provide one of the first attempts to measure the toll.


Since 2019, when the barrier’s height was raised to 30 feet along much of the border in California, the number of patients arriving at the UC San Diego Medical Center’s trauma ward after falling off the structure has jumped fivefold, to 375, the physicians found. Falling deaths at the barrier went from zero to 16 during that time, according to the report, citing records maintained by the San Diego county medical examiner.
“I never expected we would have to climb the wall,” said Hector Almeida, a 33-year-old dentist from Cuba, recovering this week in the trauma ward at UC San Diego Health. He fractured his left leg in a fall Monday. Smugglers led his group to the wall with a ladder and told them to climb up and slide down the other side, said Almeida, who said he saw one woman fall and break both legs, and an older man with a severe head injury.

The falling incidents are a subset of the soaring number of injuries, deaths and rescues occurring all across the southern border, where immigration arrests have reached an all-time high under President Biden. Migrants attempting to evade capture have drowned in the Rio Grande, died of exposure in South Texas and Arizona, and disappeared into the Pacific Ocean during smuggling attempts at sea.

What’s different is that the border wall is a man-made obstacle that poses a lethal danger and public health challenge where one did not exist previously.

Jay Doucet, chief of the trauma division at UC San Diego Health, said injuries along the border wall occurred before its increase in height, but the older, shorter version of the barrier, ranging from nine to 17 feet, was not lethal.
“Once you go over 20 feet, and up to 30 feet, the chance of severe injury and death are higher,” he said. “We’re seeing injuries we didn’t see before: pelvic fractures, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and a lot of open fractures when the bone comes through the skin.”

At Scripps Mercy Hospital, the other major trauma center for the San Diego area, border wall fall victims accounted for 16 percent of the 230 patients treated last month, a higher share than gunshot and stabbing cases, according to Vishal Bansal, the director of trauma.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Bansal said in an interview. “This is crazy.” His trauma ward treated 139 border wall patients injured by falls last year, up from 41 in 2020.
Those injured by falls often require complex intensive care and multiple, phased surgeries, according to San Diego physicians. Lacking health insurance, many are ineligible for physical therapy and rehabilitation programs, so they remain longer in hospitals, which absorb millions in unreimbursed costs.

When the Trump administration developed a series of wall prototypes in San Diego in 2017, the most difficult to climb featured a rounded, “barrel-shaped” top. But congressional appropriations for the barrier limited development to existing barrier designs, and Trump told aides he preferred the “spiky” look of the steel bollards, which he considered more intimidating.

Even more illegal migrants expected in 2022, record 2.1 million​


by Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist |

| April 19, 2022 02:23 PM

Having already set a record for illegal border crossings in 2021, the Biden administration is expected to invite even more to cross this year, setting up a bigger crisis along the Mexican border with Texas, Arizona, and California, according to a new analysis.

Last year’s 1.7 million border encounters is expected to reach 2.1 million, according to Princeton Policy Advisors, an economic analysis outfit that has correctly predicted recent border surges.




The unusually high number, the largest since records began of border crossings in 1960, follows recent record-breaking surges, including last month’s total of 221,303 “encounters” with illegal immigrants.


Princeton Policy’s President Steven Kopits told Secrets that his eye-popping projection was close to the actual border crossing number but still fell short by 9,003.

The new historic surge, he said, gives him confidence that his prediction of 2.1 million crossings in fiscal and calendar year 2022 will come true.


“We forecast 212,300 encounters for March, with actuals 4.2% above the anticipated level. Consequently, March encounters were worse than expected, but not much worse. We are simply seeing a continuation of the open-borders policy the Biden administration has employed for the last year. Put another way, border apprehensions at the current rate are absolutely appalling, but not a surprise,” he said.

So we're using a projection from Washington Secrets and Princeton Policy Advisors (whatever the fuck that is) to justify our stupidity now.

Surely it factors in closing gaps in the wall.

Genius shit. LMAO.

it measures volumes of illegal immigration over time. and apparently i need to explain again, that means the effectiveness of the wall and all other measures to curtail illegal immigration, so yes, it obviously factors in closing gaps in the wall.

i wouldn't call it genius. but its certainly not the product of a whiny asshole on a sports forum.

How Many Actions Have You Seen The Bird Brain Take, To Fix The Border Issues ?
How Many Border Patrol Agents Think The Demented Bird Brain In The White House, Has Their Back ?
Didn't You Hear The Demented Bird Brain In The White House Promise To Discipline/ Prosecute Border Patrol Agents For Treating ILLEGALS Improperly ?

3 ) A Big Thank You For Preventing A National Crisis By Correcting - its Reagan, not Regan.

It’s a projection, dumbfuck. It does not differentiate between closing the wall gaps or not. It was published in April - well before there was any discussion of closing any gaps in the wall.

Use a dictionary if the word “projection” is beyond your third grade reading comprehension and scope.

The comedic value for me is Joe routinely blasted Trump and the wall in his campaign but now is sheepishly supporting the idea.

Not just mild support, taking action and making it a priority with him and his staff, LOL.

I guess with his approval numbers he is trying to follow Trump and his ideas to gain support among more informed voters.

No internet smack, this is the dumbest, most inept group in the WH that I can ever remember. And it's not close.

Probably the worst of all time and we're only a couple years in.

Hopefully following up on the direction Trump was leading us continues to be a priority for this stupid MF'er and he silently returns to his basement.

I was freaked out at the idea of Kamala, now I think it's would just be a continuance of what we are getting now.

Pathetic, absolutely PATHETIC.
