Vaccine Mandates? Really? Individuals are unvaccinated!....Just "Who Are These Individuals" that remain unvaccinated? And why do we care? After all, Didn't Fauci once say, When 70% are vaccinated, there would be herd immunity? What happened to That?
I'm vaccinated, I've experienced COVID, So Am I Immune? One would think so, but if I am, then Why are my Freedoms being threatened? Threatened,...A word used in and about Third World Countries...Not Here!...There's more of a Border Wall around California than there is on The Border itself....Please, someone tell me the last good thing our Govenor did for our citizens... Water? Electricity? Forrest Management? Roads? Small Business?

This news is in regards to a federal mandate, has nothing to do with Newsom!

Since you brought up the subject, do you really think radio host Larry Elder is better prepared to handle the major issues going on in California? If you do, let us know some of the actions he would take to make California a better place to live.
Thank you

If Elder wins, he should attempt to scrap the short sighted renewable energy mandates/requirements from the "world is going to end" (climate change) crowd.

Wind and solar can't supply the needs of the state, there should never be a situation where there is not enough energy available/being produced, and residents/businesses should not be told to just "tough it out for the planet" (not use energy)between afternoon and evening hours. Leave it to so called "progressives" to now want to get rid of natural gas in government buildings/new residences in the state - despite it being a reliable, low cost, abundant, and clean burning energy source.

Newsom will just double down on more of the "climate emergency" nonsense forcing us to pay higher energy costs than the national average and with continued unreliability (due to all the new electric cars he wants people to buy/use).

The CCP virus is the least of our problems when held next to the disintegration of our country. In the recent past President Trump was called a racist, Hitler, a Dictator, and more. What do they now say of Biden? He has just blown open the barn door and will continue to rule with the approval of China. Are we a few footsteps behind Australia?

All these demands will accomplish nothing except to create more weak people that submit to anything out of fear and pressure. ‘The Vaccine Will Make You Free.’ I’ve heard that expressed differently back in 1939.

The demands will increase and our rights will diminish. Planned Parenthood has lost its leverage with the slogan of ‘My Body, My Choice.’

In reality, the unvaccinated are at more risk of catching the virus from the vaccinated. And don’t forget, Israel is preparing for a fourth round.

When will this all end? Follow the money.

As long as restaurants are responsible and start asking for cholesterol levels before letting customers order hamburgers I’m ok with it. It’s not that I’m worried about getting heart disease, it’s that I’m protecting you from heart disease.

California we have a problem. Folks seem to think their uneducated opinion is a substitute for what comes down to many centuries of scientific study about the use and effectiveness of vaccines. For the folks in the back that are not listening and getting vaccinated, you are stupid and putting others at risk. Your opinion about real world things is MEANINGLESS. To say your uneducated opinion offers value against scientific consensus tells me you are selfish. (Removed)

Mike,
I’m personally not against vaccination, I’m against the rhetoric and inconsistent mandates. Perhaps some love and understanding would net you the results you seek vs such divisive and un neighborly commentary. Be blessed
