Live from Music Row, Wednesday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed the original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary.
There are actually two issues that fit together in this Crommentary. One is a headline in The Wall Street Journal this morning that says “Biden Goes After Gig Workers.” There are 20 million. A gig worker is somebody who’s an independent contractor.
They might be an Uber driver or a Lyft driver. They might be a programmer. But they want to have the freedom to work when they want to. And they work typically by the hour, or as a Lyft driver, for a fee that they charge.
But they get to choose their own hours and they get to have flexibility. Well, Biden wants to force 20 million gig workers to become employees by definition. This is against their choice.
Many of these gig workers, by the way, are female. My body, my choice? Not when it comes to your employment, thank you very much. But there are 20 million. And the courts have already ruled and defined what a full-time employee, what the definition is.
So I’m not quite sure what Biden expects to accomplish from this, because there’ll be some lawsuits and then his initiative will fail. But it shows you that Biden wants to use the government to force – force employees, no choice – force employees, men and women, into unions.
A related story – and there are two of them from The Epoch Times headline: “Pfizer Executive Concedes COVID-19 Vaccine Was Not Tested on Preventing Transmission Before Release.” So what the heck was the whole purpose of it if it wasn’t for that?
But there are many healthcare workers and military people, women, especially in health care, but also in the military, who did not want to take the vaccine because they were young and healthy.
My body, my choice. Once again, what did Biden do? He said I’m going to force you to put something in your body that you don’t want. And now we know that the whole purpose of the vaccine, if it was to help prevent transmission, which is what they said it would do, was a lie.
It had not been proven. In fact, it’s now proven that it didn’t do that. Then the next one is also from The Epoch Times. “CDC Won’t Release Review of Post-Vaccine Heart Inflammation.” We now know from other studies from other countries that young men between the ages 18 and 29 in particular, who’ve had the vaccine, have many, many times greater likelihood of getting a serious, serious heart issue, including death.
And the CDC apparently finally has the information and it must be so bad in the U.S. that they won’t release it. But once again, my body, my choice. And so what you get with the Democrats is that they’re all in favor of pro-choice on one issue.
They want women to have the ability or the right to have an abortion all the way up to the day of or including the day of delivery. And by the way, that issue is not resonating the way the Democrats wanted it to because it’s a state-by-state issue now to determine what the limitations are.
But the whole my body my choice when it comes to working, when it comes to where you’re going to send your kids to school or whether or not you are forced to take the vaccine, women have no choice in the world of the Democratic Party.
