KISS founder Gene Simmons has always had a sharp tongue, and he didn’t mince words during an appearance with host Steve Harkins on Talkshoplive’s Rock N’ Roll Channel when asked about his feelings...

Here's some interesting stuff re: Covid:

We have a state Senator here in Washington state who is presently in a hospital in El Salvador where he contracted the coronavirus.  He is outspoken about refusing vaccines, mandates, mask wearing and distancing.  A golf course starter friend once wanted to pair me up with his twosome but I refused.

Anyway, he rejected the science of vaccinations and is now begging, from his hospital bed, for help in getting the science of monoclonal antibodies. He says he has a doctor there who can administer the antibodies via IV, but the product isn't available in El Salvador.

Sorry to rant, but we reap what we sow.

BTW, El Salvador has one of the highest Covid rates in the world. Why would you go there unvaccinated??? Nevertheless, I do hope he survives.

I have a few issues with that article

  1. Her being pregnant is irrelevant to the story IMO
  2. Two different quotes from the same article
    1. Teryn Gregson, who has worked for the PGA Tour as a host and reporter, announced Monday that she had been fired by the organization for refusing to get vaccinated for COVID
    2. While Gregson isn’t fully clear on whether the PGA Tour fired her for not getting vaccinated

Those two things directly contradict each other and is extremely misleading journalism.

Also I don't understand what religious exemption she could possibly need for not wearing a mask?

Seems like the pretty obvious solution for her to keep her job since she chose not to be vaccinated would have been to wear her mask at all times while at work and be tested weekly.

The first comment at the end of the article is a classic!  "Since the jab doesn’t prevent you from getting it, spreading it, getting hospitalized or dying from it. So why the discrimination?". This is how people argue these days. All of those things are true, but in vastly varying degrees, if you're vaccinated.  That's like saying Bryson DeChambeau and I play golf, so we're about the same.

Hmmm... some religions require a face covering and some religions apparently require you not to wear a face covering.  Go figure.

Except that after a brief look through her social media it appears she is Presbyterian, which as far as I know and could find in brief research, doesn't have any restrictions on not wearing face coverings.

I say good for the PGA Tour.

The comments section of the article are already a cesspool of fake rage.

My college philosophy professor would have a field day with this.   It has so many appeals to false logic that any Vulcan reading it would have a brain seizure.   Cesspool is really a very timid word for what I saw in the comments.   

I love how many people think that someone  (gov't, shadowy organizations, the UN, etc...) is out to get them.   The people who think the government is micro-shipping them to track them are the people that we are trying to completely lose and get rid of.   Why microchip that?

“I’ve always known God as far back as I can remember but the ways He’s worked in my faith journey this year have been incredible and have produced so much fruit.”

Sheesh, she's not even smart enough to know God is a she!

Absolutely. I tried to use some restraint, although I'm not sure why, as it isn't really warranted.

I think that’s accurate.  She chose not to vaccinate and was unwilling to go along with the rules and couldn’t get an exemption to the vaccination requirement is how I read it.  
 

It’s going to get messy if the federal mandate sticks for employers and they have to track the unvaccinated and enforce a mask mandate for just them.   It’s an HR nightmare.  Who in the company has access to the info and who goes around enforcing?  The testing is not near as big of an issue.
