President Biden Mistakes

Pointing out President’s mistakes could be a fun hobby.

Executive Order on Requiring Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination for Federal Employees

A link to the executive order on whitehouse.gov and a link to a copy in my repository.

What is President Biden’s Stated Primary Goal?

  • halt the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

What is President Biden’s Stated Secondary Goal?

  • the health and safety of the Federal workforce
  • and the efficiency of the civil service

How should these goals be accomplished?

  • require COVID-19 vaccination for all Federal employees, subject to such exceptions as required by law
    • the CDC has found that the best way to do so is to be vaccinated

Thoughts from Gavin Palmer

Thinking about good solutions to problems could be helpful in the event that we face a similar but more serious problem in the future.

  • The claim is that the CDC says it is best to get everyone vaccinated.

    • The truth is that we don’t know if everyone needs to be vaccinated.
      • We currently don’t know if people who were previously infected need to be vaccinated.
      • Be sure to identify and promote people who deserve our attention.
        • We get in trouble when we place trust in people who do not deserve our trust.
          • President Biden is trusting the wrong people.
  • If the goal is to halt the spread:

    • Facilitate and encourage antibody testing to allow people to know if they have had COVID-19 previously.
      • If you have had COVID-19 previously then you may not need a vaccine.
    • Allow people to become infected with the real virus at controlled times and locations.
      • Some people may choose this path over the gene therapy path.
      • Some people may be too young for the gene therapy path.
    • Faciliate and encourage remote work.
      • If I were a representative, I would be very vocal about my preference for virtual meetings. In President Biden’s announcement about the executive order, he is not wearing a mask and he is not doing a virtual meeting.
    • Segregation on government property based on antibody tests.
      • For those Federal jobs that can’t be done remotely, segregate the population based on antibody test results.
        • Publicy funded schools could try this.
    • Facilitate intentional communities within our country.
      • Make it easy for like-minded people to find each other and build their own communities with laws they find acceptable.
        • Do not be too quick to dictate laws to these intentional communities.
      • Encourage segregation of communities based on their unique risk tolerence and preference for various rules.
        • Some communities can be very libertarian, totalitarian, or something else.
