Alex Jones is about to have a field day:

The increased fines on employers could run as high as $70,000 for serious infractions, and $700,000 for willful or repeated violations—almost three-quarters of a million dollars for each fine. If enacted into law, vax enforcement could bankrupt non-compliant companies even more quickly than the $14,000 OSHA fine anticipated under Biden’s announced mandate.

..

SEC. 21004. ADJUSTMENT OF CIVIL PENALTIES.

(a) OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ACT OF 1970.—Section 17 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. 666) is amended—

(1) in subsection (a)—

(A) by striking ‘‘$70,000’’ and inserting ‘‘$700,000’’; and

(B) by striking ‘‘$5,000’’ and inserting ‘‘$50,000’’;

(2) in subsection (b), by striking ‘‘$7,000’’ and inserting ‘‘$70,000’’; and

(3) in subsection (d), by striking ‘‘$7,000’’ and inserting ‘‘$70,000’’

That provision would change existing law relating to OSHA’s enforcement fines, the very same section of law whose fines OSHA referenced in its June Covid-19 healthcare worker rule and is likely to use again to enforce its forthcoming vaccine compliance rules.

The Existing Law

29 U.S.C.§ 666 lays out OSHA enforcement fine levels. The 1970-enacted law reads:

29 U.S. Code § 666 - Civil and criminal penalties

(a) Willful or repeated violation Any employer who willfully or repeatedly violates the requirements of section 654 of this title, any standard, rule, or order promulgated pursuant to section 655 of this title, or regulations prescribed pursuant to this chapter may be assessed a civil penalty of not more than $70,000 for each violation, but not less than $5,000 for each willful violation

(b) Citation for serious violation Any employer who has received a citation for a serious violation of the requirements of section 654 of this title, of any standard, rule, or order promulgated pursuant to section 655 of this title, or of any regulations prescribed pursuant to this chapter, shall be assessed a civil penalty of up to $7,000 for each such violation [emphasis added].

Each year, OSHA adjusts these penalties for inflation, so for 2021, the fines are not actually capped at $70,000 and $7,000, but $136,532 and $13,653 per violation. If House Democrats get their way, by enacting the page 168 changes, those fines would increase to $700,000 for willful and repeated violations and $70,000 for serious violations.

Alex Jones is going to go nuts!

It's weird how the Mainstream media isn't reporting ANY of this. GO to CNN or MSNBC and type in "protest" in the search... No information.

Journalists have shown their true colors.

I am lucky all my income is online and work from home.

Personally being forced to stay in the house, even more, this year than usually proved very productive and profitable.

That being said I did have family in the hospital and I don't wish anyone to go through that.

There seems to be so much fighting about the virus nowadays between people believing various things about the vaccine, it's crazy.

I took the vaccine and just stayed in my room and made money, and played some wow classic to remember the times when I was young haha

I feel there wouldn't be any fighting about COVID if it were as simple as:

Let people take the vaccine if they wish. Those that don't, leave alone.
  • We let people take the Flu shoot on their own will every year. No one is punished for not doing it. Every year most of the world comes down with the Flu in some way and yes, people die from it too. We don't force people to take the Flu shot though or produce records of it to do XYZ.

  • Plenty of women get to choose "my body my choice", and are supported for it. There is no punishment if they have a child, or not. Even though this could be considered murder to many people. We don't punish a women for having an abortion, or reward one that doesn't.

  • Parents get to choose if their son is circumcised or not, a practice rooted in both hygiene and religion. No punishment for those that do, or do not. A circumcised penis can help reduce the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases such as trichomoniasis and HIV, but we aren't demanding records from men on their penises ( and overall hygiene like if they wash their hands after urination ) to help slow down or prevent HIV.

  • Homeschooled children are not forced ( at least where I live ) to take the same vaccines as schooled children, even though they go out into the world every day ( minus school ) and eat, play, go to movies, etc. No one is punished or demanding to see their "vaccine record" when they go into Chuck E Cheese though. When I entered college, I was not told I needed to produce my "vaccination" records either.. so whose to prove I ever had any to begin with?
If you remove the forced COVID policies, you wouldn't have fighting. People would go about and do what they always have done, just as they do now.

We have plenty of examples where people are doing similar activities on their own free will with no punishment on the end choice, I only listed 4 above.. all of which have health consequences to another person if the exampled person doesn't take the "appropriate" and "correct" health action. To put a punishment or a reward for COVID treatment action, is a double standard.

That's what the fighting is about.

Once the fight starts, you get into all the other issues like medical facts, rights, etc. When you remove the mandate, you lose the fighting and all that comes with the fighting.

But because there is a double standard, and we live in a world where no one thinks for themselves ( oh please spoon feed me more big gov. ), and most people need to be coddled in their safe place... you get this type of response and action.

The mandates are not about the virus, it's about trying to turn the West less open and less democratic.
