FYI I am in agreement with "Dull" here. I may like Joe Biden, but if we can't call out when he makes a mistake ie being a hypocrite and going against his own policies, then we may as well have Trump's can-do-no-wrong cult back again.

Bad example, Joe. :^p

Why no mask, Joe? Biden and Jill pose without masks for pics with frail Jimmy Carter, 96, and wife Rosalynn, 93, despite president insisting it's his 'patriotic responsibility' to wear one for socially distanced interviews and outdoors despite CDC advice

Which is good to call out the inconsistency, agreed.

At this moment, that image does give out a very bad message: What?! No masks!!

However: I hope the usual sensationalism and conspiracy stirring doesn't dilute the good healthy message to wear masks to save lives.


I also hope that Biden's press people learn from the silly inconsistency in that some 'photo ops' have consequences...

Then also, we are still a universe away from the Trumped-up deadly silliness we've badly seen.


Stay safe folks!

What am I missing?
My understand is CDC guidelines allow for vaccinated people to congregate without masks.

That is exactly so. Fully correct. Simple? Yet...


What is being missed (or not) is the supposed message visually being given out to the maskless.

There is a deadly game by some to stupidly chase any excuse to not wear a mask, regardless of freedoms and regardless of healthy good sense.


I agree with there being no problem if all the people there in that picture have been vaccinated. Considering those people there, you can safely bet that indeed, everyone there will have been vaccinated.

You can also bet that the picture is going to cause deadly silliness with how the picture is reported...

Unfortunately, Trump made mask wearing a 'game of politics', regardless of any concern for the people that he has subsequently killed. Such is the deadly game of 'partisan' political reporting that lingers on, deadly...

My take on the messaging is getting vaccinated has it's rewards inluding the freedom to go pretty much maskless.

In the world of media sensationalism, that message about the rewards of getting vaccinated is far too positive and sensible. Where is the deadly sensationalism in such a positive view?

In the world of deadly partisan politics, any political message has to be contrived so as to be robust against unreasonable attack...


Hence for that picture of the benefits of getting vaccinated, more of a question is the timing and presentation.

Or... Have we all fallen for a small controversy to get all this into the big news?

For an ongoing sad story of what shouldn't be political:


Anti-Vax{ers} SO DISASTROUS That Biden Announces New Strategy
wrote:
Anti-vaccine sentiment has been so damaging to the COVID vaccination effort that President Joe Biden is forced to announce a new strategy...



Fantastic success so far for as far as the vaccination effort has gone.

Here's hoping the renewed good work to clear COVID works further, faster, soon!

Stay safe folks!

Here is the source of your answer:

... The elites in many U.S. cities welcome illegal migrants as cheap labor for their service sectors, said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The migration “makes life easier for the elites of cities and relieves them of the necessity of [economic] reform because when [American] people leave, other [migrant] people move in,” he said.

New York leaders rely heavily on foreign migrants to support the city’s low-wage service sector — but many of the migrants have fled their jobs and housing because of ... coronavirus...


All fair?...

Add to that the legal exceedingly low minimum wage, which in some sectors and places is between $2 and $3 per hour. In my book that is "approaching slavery".

My First Job as U.S. Citizen: A Line worker in a Cafetera(dug requested food out of steam table and handed plate to customer). For a week. It was hot and I sweated and while in bathroom I mentioned my unhappiness(not knowin' BOSS was in stall) and BOSS allowed me to
switch to BusBoy fO 'bout 4 months and then DishMachine dirty dishes feeder, fo next 5 months. All fO $1.90 an hour(which was a higher wage of line worker I got to retain).

I never felt workin' as a line worker; BusBoy; or Dishwasher a Job I shouldn't Do. I performed these Jobs extremely well, 'cept fo da sweating on a plate of food.

Cleared a little over 50 buckaroos a week from dA Great Corporation of Marriot. I believe I still have pay stubs from them.

There were 'Migrants' around when I was young and I can't remember any negative thoghts 'bout it I worked alongside many of them.

Did a Real American US Citizen lose out on a Job then? Do they now? Answer would have to be Yes.

Did a Migrant then and now get hired to bring down Costs? I've Never been on dA Inside, so I couldn't say.

Maybe they were paid more. I don't know.

There are People who do know.

Yep

Paid 'bout 25 cents a gallon fO Gas then. With Inflation, Gas is Cheaper Now.
