President Joe Biden has mandated that Americans take the COVID vaccinations and he’s trying to force it upon people where ever he can. Along those lines, more and more states have plans to terminate public sector employees including police and firefighters who refuse to take the Wuhan flu vaccine. Medical professions in hospitals and clinics are finding themselves in the same boat.
What happens when ten or twenty percent of these groups resign or are terminated over their refusal to take the jab?
We all know what happens with fewer police on the streets. If your name is ‘Dacian’ or you’ve been living under a rock, just look toward Chicago, where “defund the police” has resulted in something approaching a thousand empty police positions. At the same time, homicides in Chi-town this year are on track for 25-year highs.
What happens when fewer firefighters, paramedics, and ambulance personnel impact the response time for life-saving critical care in the field? How long will it take to get help if you’re knifed or shot by a bad guy? Or if you have a heart attack or serious injuries from a motor vehicle accident?
What will happen to your health when hospitals and clinics defer or cancel medical testing or procedures? We know that during the 2020 lockdowns, many thousands of people later died after treatable conditions like cancers went undetected or untreated because hospitals delayed or wouldn’t accept anything except emergency cases or COVID patients.
And should you need elective surgery, how will your quality of life change if you cannot have that knee repair completed?
Befuddled President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan isn’t going well for America or its citizens. And we have three more years of building and betterment left in his term.
A single death is a tragedy. Thousands of deaths are a statistic. If you’re not making preparations for these next three years, you might become the next statistic.
Prudent people are embracing gun ownership like never before. Over ten million first-time gun owners, in fact. More and more Americans have concluded that they will be their own first responders in a time of increasing first responder delays and scarcity. That includes many who have never liked guns, but have reluctantly accepted the present-day reality in Joe Biden’s America.
The most forward-thinking of these new gun owners will seek out reputable and competent training to learn how avoid victimization by criminals. And if the worst happens, they will learn to use that new gun they bought. (Wouldn’t it be great if you knew how to find better firearm training?)
In the same classes, they will also learn the law on deadly force so they can act according to the standard by which they will be judged. By doing so, they will avoid becoming victims of the criminal justice system. (And a plug here for self-defense legal “insurance” coverage by groups like US Law Shield and Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. Your author has both.)
Wise and prudent folks might also add some basic medical gear to their list to help ensure health and well-being. A blood pressure monitor (or the old-fashioned cuff) and the knowledge of how to use it would be a good start. Ditto for a pulse oximeter. You can get either of these for about the price of a box of 9mm practice ammo … $30-$35 or less.
Making sure you also have a solid first aid kit and the knowledge of how to use it might save your life or that of a family member too. I’m a big fan of “Stop the Bleed” coursework available at little or no charge across the nation. Again, the life you save might be your own.
Other medical-related ideas: make sure you have a current list of all the meds everyone in your house takes and know how to refill them (over and above always having a month’s supply at home). Also visit your doctor while you can for a physical to identify any problems and address them sooner, if possible, rather than later.
The life you save could be your own.
