‘A civil right’

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pledged to bring forward legislation further protecting individuals from discrimination based on whether they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 in a Thursday press conference.

Many of the state’s COVID-19 related rules are expected to expire in July, but DeSantis plans to push for further protections from vaccine-related discrimination along with protection from forced masking policies, he said. The announcement came during a press conference about the state’s plans to lower prescription drug costs.

“We were the first state in the country to ban COVID vaccine passports in the spring of 2021, almost two years ago,” DeSantis continued. “We protected employees from being fired from their job. We did a special session in 2021 over the shots [and] banned schools from requiring covid shots for students, including universities.

The governor also pledged to further limit mask requirements, suggesting that private businesses shouldn’t be allowed to impose masking requirements on individuals.

“We’re gonna do a whole package. We’re gonna make all this permanent, then we’re gonna add some more protections for people,” DeSantis said. “You should be able to live your life without a mask … I just think it’s a civil right to be able to breathe the fresh air and be able to live your life.”

The Florida legislature is scheduled to convene for its regular session March 7.

    So, when the anti-vaxxers kids start dying and spreading polio, or measles (death can occur), we know where to look for the cause.

    The article below helps us to hit the ‘PAUSE’ button before lashing out at anyone whose opinion differs from our own! ‘Pause’ and ‘Stop’ are fantastic tools in developing emotional and social intelligence.

    “The Shameful Silence of American Liberal Institutions.”

    “Even if you ignore the sources of genuine information about COVID-19 policy — and several are available via the internet — there have been epiphanic moments when the propagandists have actually exposed themselves, as when New York’s Governor Kathy Hochul told a megachurch audience that God had commanded Americans to take the COVID-19 “vaccines,” or when an unrepentant Colonel Birx admitted to Congress that she had misrepresented facts when ordering the public to submit to the same experimental drugs.
    Do you really need any more evidence of the megalomaniac lust for power driving these democracy-haters, as they dismantle the U.S. Constitution piece by piece?”

    It is wise to remember that those who can persuade others to commit acts of absurdity also have the power to make others commit atrocities!

    It is for our one’s own good to stop and think before opening one’s mouth, and before taking any action just because someone said so.

    Always behind the curve. Always. Where were any of you now waking up when I was punching a me-sized hole through all the NPC Operation Covaids/ Operation Masktard bullcrap out there for the last three years, sucking your thumbs? The sheer weakness and infidelity of “authorities” I see in this world makes me want to see it covered in molten rock.

    Governor DeSantis is to be applauded for placing the wellbeing of Floridians front and center. Thank you Governor.
    The ever growing lust of WHO, WEF and their powerful allies for a ‘Great Reset’ means that our sovereignty is under serious threat. The 2023 WEF meeting amplifies this.
    Ethical politicians can help us retain our rights and, above all, protect our Constitution.
    The 2023 WEF meeting also confirms the increasing grab for total world domination under the pretext of a pandemic. Sounds familiar?

    “Who’s Running the World?
    8 Takeaways From This Week’s WEF Meeting”

    “Statements by WEF’s Founder and Executive Chair Klaus Schwab and WEF meeting participants also revealed how the “elite” meeting participants appear to believe they are the self-anointed saviors — or rulers — of the world.
    In an interview with India Today, which sent two attendees to this year’s WEF meeting, Schwab said the world will soon no longer be run by superpowers such as the U.S., but instead by WEF “stakeholders,” such as BlackRock and Bill Gates.
    At the WEF meetings, “conformity is required and debate is a cancel-worthy sin.”
    He elaborated on this point in a recent blog post, describing the WEF meetings as “a reinforced echo chamber in which there is one problem, one objective, and only one solution,” instead of being “a place for a healthy, robust debate.”

    “Among the critics was Twitter owner and CEO Elon Musk, who responded to a tweet: “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want.”
    Musk posted an online poll — that generated 2.42 million votes — where he asked whether “The World Economic Forum should control the world.” Eighty-six percent of respondents said “no.”!”

    Irrespective of political persuasion or any personal affiliations, beliefs, values, or any other diversities, we all need to be aware of what is really going on in the world – the result(s) will impact our shared planet.
    The Covid-19 scamplandemic was a well planned manipulative ploy to use fear to condition us to become servile.
    If citizens of the world unite despite the myriad diversities, and strive towards a shared common goal, it could form the “Greater Reset”.
