Trevor Noah is great.  If you can find his book "Born A Crime", it's well worth the read.

I am vax'd, but if it had been MANDATED at the time I got the jab, I doubt I would have done it. 

Is it just a "you can't tell me what to do!" tantrum, or do you have deeper government trust issues?

Needless to say, the number of people claiming religious exemption is suspect.

Yeah, especially when they are sold online.

Neither, I just prefer to think for myself, make my own decisions, not just do what some agency tells me I must do.  That doesn't mean I won't do whatever I'm being told I must do - it means I will make the decision.

Vendors always gouge the customer when they know insurance is paying.

I don't think I have been gouged by the government. In fact, it gave us several thousand stimulus dollars.

This implies that people who agree with the mandates can't think for themselves.

Personally, I'm sick of our border being closed.  I want to travel.  People who refuse to get vaccinated are holding our state back.  If a mandate is what it takes to get the apathetic to move, then so be it.

The government tells you what to do every time you get in your car.  It's not a new concept, and certainly not tyrannical.

I have to agree. The government has a right and a responsibility to protect public security.

We all live our lives based on our interpretation of what we see/hear around us.  That does not make our opinions right or wrong.  Our opinions, which are derived from what we see, hear and experience, are valid for only ourselves.  I would never expect either of you to change your opinion based on what my opinion is.  Neither would I denigrate you based on your opinion.  

Acceptance of other people simply because they are human would, IN MY OPINION, lower the amount of inhumanity we all live with.

Example:  Czoe:  I think what you are saying is refusal to be vaxed based on use of fetal issue is invalid.  I happen to agree with you.  What I offered was, IN MY OPINION, the only reason I could think of for a religious exemption.  Was there something else?

Jenifer:  "This implies that people who agree with the mandates can't think for themselves."  No, it states I make my own decisions.  It implies nothing else.  What you are stating is your interpretation of what I think.
