Stop The Mandates Or People Die

By Karl Denninger, The Market Ticker

Better watch this one folks and let it sink in.

“If I don’t show up for my job, as I just explained to you, people die. On Saturday night at 10 p.m. I got a page. I did not want to go to work. Somebody was having a very critical problem, they were dying. I worked until 6 a.m. the next day. If I had not of showed up, there would have been nobody to do my job. These guys can’t show up to their job, and I’m sorry, your jobs are not as important as mine.”

There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of people just like him.

They’re everywhere in the health care system.  They have unique skills without which the system does not function, and when you need those skills you need them now, not later.

There is no “later”; there is either now or death.

Take someone on dialysis.  This is not a “robotic procedure”; each patient has specific levels of various drugs and their specific metabolic reactions to them that must be individually managed.  The people who do that job are not replaceable on short notice, if at all.  If you need dialysis and do not get it, you die.  This is not a “maybe” or “might die” you WILL die with absolute, 100% certainty.

Things happen at odd hours of the day and night.  Most real medical emergencies are not scheduled — heart attacks, strokes, car wrecks, gunshots and similar.  They happen when they happen and either someone is there to respond to it and deal with it or the person in question dies.

Those hundreds of thousands of people who are utterly essential to people not dying every single day — hundreds if not thousands who will otherwise die if those employees refuse to show up — and exactly zero of those people can be compelled to work.

This is America.

It is not the Soviet Union.  It is not North Korea.

NOBODY is a slave and EVERYONE has the right to say “**** you” and walk out.



Then there are of course both cops and firefighters.  You want someone to put your house out if its on fire, right?  What if the firefighters say “**** you” to a jab mandate and quit?  Who’s going to put the fire out?  Do you even have a wrench to get the hydrant open, say much less the correct fittings and hose?

What happens when your child is in that burning house and there is no firefighter to put it out?  He or she dies.

You cannot arrest and jail someone for quitting their job or refusing a mandate and being fired.

All employment is voluntary, no matter how “essential” the position.  THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS and there is no way to replace the people who do these jobs without which hundreds of people per day WILL DIE.

Therefore you have a choice to make America and you have to make it NOW.

You will stand up and stop these mandates.

You will do it now.

You will do it or every single person who dies as a result of your failure to do so, and the refusal of others to consent, is YOUR responsibility.

Not their person who quits — YOURS.

THEY are not slaves.  THEY cannot be compelled to consent.  THEY have NO obligation to put up with your bull****.

You’d better get this through your thick ******n skull RIGHT NOW.

YOU are why that person who needs dialysis will be dead.

YOU are why the person who is in critical trouble in a hospital and there is no perfusionist available right now will die.

YOU either stop this madness, right now, by whatever means are necessary, without exception from top to bottom or YOU are responsible for those deaths and those deaths WILL come.


Act now — TODAY — or shut the **** up and revel in YOUR decision to kill.

THAT is the choice you must make and it is NOT abstract.

If you choose to sit on your hands and do nothing YOU are the reason those people will die.
