This article from the Federalist is the greatest thing they've ever written.

"Supreme Court has upheld [mandatory school vaccines] as constitutional for over a century, and only the political fringes believe there ought to be a debate about such matters."…
Every piece of this article is simply amazing from the Federalist:

"But that doesn’t mean there are no tradeoffs for such a decision (refusing vaccinations). If you choose not to vaccinate, private and public institutions should be able to discriminate on that basis."
The Federalist actually said that the government should withhold child tax credits for those who refuse to vaccinate!

"The Australian experience on vaccines, where they tied access to family tax benefits to immunization, illustrates that carrots can be quite effective."

UK Study: "There was no evidence that face coverings, 2-metre social distancing or stopping children mixing was associated with lower odds of COVID-19 [rates]... in the school. Primary school staff found teaching challenging during COVID-19 restrictions"…
One of the things about "following the science" is that you have to be willing to change what the data warrants.

Masks in schools (esp elementary) have almost no impact unless they are N95s, and younger kids end up playing with them to the point where they are a detriment.
We know a lot more this year than we did last year and if the data shows masks don't help a lot when kids are stationary for 6 hours, there's no need to force it just for a false sense of security.

My wife teaches kindergarten and I can tell you that they are absolutely no help.

With all of the talk about inflation I wanted to do a quick thread to explain how inflation has been impacting my small business and will be impacting consumers even more in the days to come.

I've been talking about this all year, but this might give a better overview. 1/11
At the start of 2021 our supplier increased costs on all products by 20-35% due to the massive increases in materials on their end. We all saw this with the escalating costs of wood, glass, metal, etc.

That alone required us to increase costs on some items where we could. 2/11
Those price increases did not hit until about May because it takes ~90 days to get products from order to available for sale.

So we increased in very small amounts but have been waiting to increase further to absorb the increases in product costs.

But it doesn't end there. 3/11

I don't think kids should have mask requirements in school and I say that as someone who has been pro-mask.

The data is clear that kids aren't getting COVID as much as adults and severe illness is pretty rare.

Parents should make the call on if their kid needs to wear a mask.
If a school district's area is seeing a massive outbreak, of course they should have temporary restrictions such as masks.

But to have a blanket mask mandate for a state is silly without some data-driven metrics to work with.

Being flexible is the key for school policies.
Have you seen elementary school kids sitting with masks in the August heat for 6+ hours?

They hate wearing them and end up playing around with them all day. Those masks are pretty nasty after a full day of school- especially in these hot months.

They end up being a distraction.

For the "vaccines don't work so why would I get one" crowd: Image
Another very easy way to illustrate that the vaccines are not only working, but they're working amazingly well against the delta variant to prevent deaths.

I know a lot of people are profiting from pushing misinformation and the CDC is awful at messaging, but the vaccines work! Image
Here's yet another easy illustration of how well the vaccines are working: In Virginia, they've only had 17 vaccinated hospitalizations - just 0.0004%!

There are 42x more cases among unvaxxed Virginians even though over half the state (54%) is vaccinated.

This isn't difficult. Image
