In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Navy SEAL Lawsuit
- Montana Marijuana FAQ
- The Western Word Poll
NAVY SEAL LAWSUIT:
Several anti-vaxxers on the right are cheering on a lawsuit from a group representing several members of the Navy SEALs over the vaccine mandate.
Earlier this month, Politico reported that a group of 47 Republican lawmakers filed an amicus brief in support of a federal lawsuit brought by more than two-dozen Navy SEALS seeking a religious exemption to the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate.
Politico also reported that the lawsuit states the mandate violates their First Amendment rights, as well as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Administrative Procedure Act. It was filed by some outside group called the First Liberty Institute.
Good luck with that. It was also reported:
So far, none of the roughly 12,000 service members who have requested religious exemptions from the federal vaccine mandate has received one. The Air Force is processing 4,700 requests, while the Navy is working through about 2,700. The Marine Corps and Army is reviewing 3,100 and 1,700 requests, respectively.
MTN News in Montana reported that U.S. Senator Steve Daines and U.S. Representative Matt Rosendale from Montana (and who never served in the military) are part of a group of Republican members of Congress who have filed an amicus brief supporting 35 members of the Navy who are suing the government over the COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
I’ve said from the beginning that those service members who refuse to take the vaccine should be discharged. Salute, march on up the hill, take the shot, or get the hell out of the way of the patriots who are taking the vaccine. As a 12-year veteran, I was qualified to go anywhere in the world, and I had all the shots that allowed me to do that at a moment’s notice. I received my third vaccine shot this month.

THE WESTERN WORD POLL:

This week’s poll question asks, “Do you agree with the verdict in the Kimberly Potter trial?”
The results will be posted later this week.
