    I mean, this happens already in essence anyway from what I understand.

How much interaction have you had with OSHA? I have found them to be phenomenally toothless.

    If your habits outside of work endanger others while you are at work we already police that.

Who is "we" in this instance? Is it OSHA? Can you confirm that it is OSHA?

    From my point of view showing up to work at the lumber yard or dock or office without a vaccine in your bloodstream is functionally the functionally same as showing up with an intoxicant in it.

Right... but this isn't the Court of OB or else all those professing religion of any kind would have long since been strung up by their dicks and flogged with razor wire.

    And we also have mandated vaccines for students all the way up into college.

Still not OSHA.

    Of course there's no way any of this could be dealt with in a nuanced manner that acknowledges that we are in a once in a century health crisis that needs to be handled as such.

There is! State of emergency exists, emergency powers act in force, totally coulda had HHS mandate vaccines. Woulda been a different fight. Supreme Court still might have set a bad precedent. Would have been, uhm, "interesting." Might not have been heartening. So they took a flyer at "maybe they'll let OSHA do it, but prolly not."

    We are committed to the longest slowest costliest most lethal path forward.

Again, who is this "we?"

    I don't know why I bother engaging on any health related topics anymore.

You vomited forth one word. I'm the one who drew you out into (semi) thoughtful discussion. I would say your engagement per se has been perfunctory at best.

    The open and cheerful mercenary nature we approach it with makes me too disheartened.

The worst thing about Fundies is they never stop being Fundies. They just reverse direction.

I'll tell you what I told my aunt: "if you don't want to be lectured don't act like a child."
