We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
From what I've read at American Thinker these past few days, those vaccine mandates only legally apply to the approved vaccine from Pfizer, which will be marketed under the "Comirnaty" label. While it's the same stuff as what's in the vials of their EUA vax, the legal difference is that the BLA licensed Comirnaty isn't legally exempted. Problem is, Pfizer has tens of millions of vials of the EUA stuff sitting in freezers, so it's going to be a long time until actual Comirnaty labeled vax gets out to the public. As in months. So none of the mandates are valid until the approved, licensed product is available.
Now let's see this stand up in court. It's only the law that's on the books, so why should we expect the courts to uphold that?
Amherst should mandate that everyone who sets foot on their campus must carry a Covid Rock, a little gemstone set on a silver chain that's been splashed with holy water, guaranteed to ward off the virus. You may have your doubts about the Covid Rock, but I can assure you that its claims have been just as thoroughly and rigorously subjected to scientific testing as any claims as to the efficacy of double-masking, perhaps even more.
The groups avoiding vaccination are those who nothing about everything and those who know everything about nothing.

I hope and pray I outlive Jane Fonda. I want to piss on her grave. I spent 20 years in the Air Force during the entire Vietnam war and I'm ashamed of and angry with people like Hanoi Jane. I may even shit on her grave if possible and the line isn't too long.
