Many places are printing out the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and holding it up as they are defying local orders and state mandates. The braver me, would do the same and walk into the hospital and just say, “No. I will not do as you say,” (and see if they fire me or let me work). The half-strong/half-weakling in me who hates confrontation and worries too much about what others think (or how my actions affect “them” too) is torn, between continuing to work (which is unsafe for my family) and quitting. But either way, the main idea is to protect my family, to protect my rights, and to never comply and get on some state funded FEMA internment database. So, forgive me, but “No”, I don’t want to be tested for COVID. Not now, not ever! And, especially when there are conflicting reports, false positives, and states that have well overstated their powers, crossing every line imaginable, “No” thank-you, I do not want to check for antibodies or contact tracing of exposure, none of it; I am done (being complicit).
As well, I do not want to have my temperature taken forcibly. I am not ill. “I have no fever or I would not have come in to work.”
Stating that all of these measures to be mandated are in place, in order to work is only leading up to the biggie of all biggies…
(A pretend cure) — I am sorry, I am not interested. They cant even get their own stories straight. I am already wearing a mask daily and depriving my brain of oxygen for far too many hours a day. I do not want to be away from my kids anymore. The world we were in months ago, is gone. I can no longer put everyone else’s needs above my own and my families needs. Yes, yes, be a kind human, but, if this is war, everyone is in it for themselves. — Thirteen years of experience, hard work, and excuse me for bragging, being damn good and in high demand, down the drain…
But… Oh well. Hard times call for extreme measures.
And this is all something I can not give in to!!
