Default So I'm still F'd

Since Virginia came to it's senses (for now) and got rid of the commies currently in office our new governor has vowed to make the drug mandate illegal. The problem I face is our stupid idiot company has a drug mandate of November 15th or lose my job. I asked if they are going to move the date but they haven't responded. Now I see some senators are working on making the mandate unconstitutional (which it is) but I'm running out of time.
I'm still ****ed.

U.S. federal appeals court issues stay on Biden's vaccine rule for U.S. companies

WASHINGTON, Nov 6 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal appeals court issued a stay Saturday freezing the Biden administration's efforts to require workers at U.S. companies with at least 100 employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 or be tested weekly, citing "grave statutory and constitutional" issues with the rule.

The ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit comes after numerous Republican-led states filed legal challenges against the new rule, which is set to take effect on Jan 4. (Reporting by Mike Scarcella, writing by Pete Schroeder)

I talked to my company about this and they are not stopping the company mandate. Matter of fact I'm sitting here waiting my 15 minutes after getting the J&J. I'm too old to start another career and have two kids in college so I need my income. What gets me is if a conservative was POTUS right now and mandated this crap it would have been shot down day one. **** you America.

You're ****ed without a kiss on this one.

I'm Glad Desantis made the vax mandate illegal for any government employees. I work for a college so that applies to me, but the college was looking at making it mandatory to comply with Brandon's federal mandate. Nope... not happening at all and was quickly shot down.

I held out as long as I could and my wife and I actually discussed early retirement (will retire in 7 to 10 years) but at my rate of retirement savings/investments if I retire now at my current ROI I calculated I'd be losing a little over $500,000 in retirement funds. That and with two kids in college and the fact the we are no longer free to pursue happiness in this country is the reason I had to get the jab.

So far so good. I work nights so I got it at 6am, went home and messed around a bit. At around 10am I started getting the chills and every muscle in my body started shaking. I went to bed, got under the covers and eventually warmed up and the shaking stopped. Since I woke up I feel fine.

**** YOU SOCIALISTS!
