Not saying it's in effect. Saying they can still appeal it and send it higher the way they did the cms and OSHA mandates. It also doesn't stop companies from issuing thier own mandates. Company mandates have all been upheld. And we all know how much large companies love to 'get out in front.'

Watergate, Vietnam, JFK's assassination, the Bay of Pigs invasion

Amongst boomers, those were primarily liberal talking points

The fed contract issue hasn't been heard by the supreme court and the injuction is only a temporary thing. Like what happened with the cms mandate and the OSHA mandate. We dont yet know what SCOTUS will do with the fed mandate. The recent SCOTUS decision means that only the OSHA mandate is down for the count. The cms mandate was also I joined, which only temporarily blocked it until SCOTUS decided to uphold it. For now, fed contract employees are safe but SCOTUS can still revive it. It still has a pulse. Hopefully it slow rolls and doesn't get touched until after the fever has passed.

Its an old thing from the Joseph Smith and Brigham young days. Some of the old literature uses the label. They generally don't say it out loud anymore. There is a lost tribe of Israel theme that runs through a lot of thier oral traditions.

OSHA was the only mandate that got vaporized. All the others remain in place.

the Bay of Pigs invasion that was literally a fucking CIA coup attempt,

Against a communist dictator. Minor detail.

Much of what the liberals did to justify 'fixing' everything once they had power. Starting mostly with the first Clinton administration. Was to lie about what was broke and what had been happening.

To wit, much of what you cite are things and perspectives that didn't enter play until the 70s and 80s. You listed a few events that happened in the 60s. But for the most part that list starts in the late 60s and early 70s. When the 'new left' began it's crusade to burn everything down so socialism and then communism could happen.

People assume there was massive anti Vietnam sentiment the whole time and that the character of the war was consistent throughout. Vietnam started in 65 but Students didn't turn against it until 67 and it wasn't until Tet in 68 that the war people think of today was even a thing. And you don't think the pro commie crowd made up a majority of the anti nuke anti Vietnam war crowd?

The narrative of the 60s and 70 you appear to be citing as a primary source wasnt written untill the 80s. People still lie about it, still argue and disagree about it.

The Kennedy assasination didn't even begin to take on it's current stigma until long after it happened.

The Boomers were alive for these things and often participants. Why would they wait 20yrs and then ask for an alternate history? One most often written by the left.

My original argument still stands. They are products of a world that no longer exist and a world they played a large part in giving away. They were sheltered from the consequences. Younger generations were not.

I know a lot of boomers who see this as just another shot and seem to think the government is still a functioning trustworthy thing, and that people like Obama and Biden are anomalies. They never got the email saying that "leave it to beaver" has been canceled.

Much of the social bullshit younger generations have been subjected to, the boomers have been exempted from. It's a much steeper learning curve for most of them. Many have been sheltered from the real and systemic changes and as a result still live in a world that ceased to exist decades ago.

I had a really bad flu before all the kung pow sicken drama. Felt like I was dying but because it's been a hundred years or so since people have legitimately had to worry about, "catching thier death." I was able to take survival for granted and dismiss it all as a period of suck to be suffered and not a legitimate threat to my life.

Fast forward to 2020 when the flu was plague, and to now, when everyone has become a hypochondriac, germophobe with the compromised immune system of a 90yr old.

With all the fear porn, people have been conditioned to see themselves as fighting off death every time they get the sniffles. Sack up people.

I wager, the people clogging hospitals now are the people who'd have been happy with just NyQuil and chicken soup three years ago.

A similar post that must have been made elsewhere at some point:

I couldn't get into rehab as an alcoholic so I became a heroin addict so I could get help.

There has to be something in their core that is wiling to let truth win. Some have more than others, some have none.

Shitty virus past best if use by date and fading fast. Now even they can tell it apart from the flu. Like they really really can't tell the difference anymore.

The salt lake valley area from north of salt lake all the way down to Provo sold it's soul to get big tech and lefty professionals to start colonizing the place. Adobe being thier biggest john right now. Along with a handful of companies building machines used to make microchips. They encourage the coastal refugees for profit. Then treat them like missionaries, to milk them some more. They don't seem too worried about what the place will be like in 50yrs. Just how much effortless money they can get today and write off as a 'blessing.'

They also have a weakness for cheap foreign labor that has largely been bannished to the west side of the valley via some bizzaro soft Jim crow. East benches are all either white Mormons with money and or church status or white woke tards with money who think they're being edgy by flying LGBTQ flags in salt lake. Which seems to have more gays and lesbians than San Francisco. As in every LGBTQ Mormon has moved to Salt Lake City.

LDS generally votes red but the club itself is more about obedience than principle and the upper levels sure have a way of showing it when selling their followers up the river to enrich themselves. At every possible turn.

Fun fact. Las Vegas wasn't built by the mob. It was settled and then built by Mormons. They like free money and if it comes from the gentiles being sinfull, than so be it. They also managed to finish off Howard Hughes when he was holed up in his Vegas hotel suite. 'Helped' by a council of seven Mormons.

Vegas was always an 'open city's as far as organized crime was concerned. Nobody had dibs, it was 'out on the open seas' type rules. Regardless of family, city or turf, they all wanted to go there and party and launder money without worrying about getting cross with fellow travelers. Business people, lawyers and financiers went there to get dirty. Mob guys went there to play, or lay low and act clean. The Mormons were the ones really working the skim. The mob got all the attention and Mormons who'd climbed into bed with them were more than happy to let that happen.

Salt lake bankers even started up valley bank in Vegas for the expressed purpose of lending to casinos. For payroll and expansion projects. The church likes to maintain appearances while back dealing the living crap out of eachother and gentiles. Sadly, Romney is a representative sample of utah's current elite.

Some of my favorite people are mormon, but like most large organizations these days, the upper echelons seem rotten to the core.

I prefer coffee cup and clipboard (clipboard is more of a workplace accessory and is purely optional in non work environments). Old military trick to keep supervisors and underlings at bay. Works in the civilian world too. And, most importantly, coffee cups provide unparalleled protection against covids in all environments and atmospheric conditions. I was apparently doing my part long before there was a part to be done.
