Our List Gets Longer

When you think of essential workers during the age of the Trump-Virus, you probably think of frontline workers in hospitals, or perhaps the people stocking the shelves at the grocery store, or the kid delivering said groceries, perhaps the firefighter or maybe the average millionaire at Goldman Sachs working to make trades happen faster.

Wait. What?

Wall Street could get a shot in the arm in the coming months, while much of Main Street waits months for their COVID inoculations. Lenders, bank tellers, and traders could jump ahead of most Americans for vaccines, after such remedies receive emergency authorization by the Food and Drug Administration, potentially putting financial industry workers ahead of those aged above 65, adults with medical issues and the rest of the U.S. population. The American Bankers Association said it has asked for the CDC to designate financial services industry as “essential workers,” following guidelines issued by the Department of Homeland Security.

To which there is only one possible reply, and Scissorhead Monkeyfister has the last word:

    Yeah, when the “essential” Wall Street “workers” get the vaccine early in the distribution process, there will be pitchforks and guillotines. Since they’re profiting so handsomely from pharmaceutical stocks, maybe they can buy their own vaccines later.

    I’m sarcastically expecting golf caddies to be somewhere near the top.

    I thought it odd how quickly when it was suggested a few obstructionists were hanged they voted lynching a hate crime. Talk about 20/20 hindsight, been trying to get ’em to vote on it for a hundred years and all we had to do was suggest it might be applied a little closer to home. Faawk.

    Have no idea what’s up with firing squads making a comeback, but like guillotines I’m all for ’em. Marie Antoinette had no idea what was coming, but she had enough time to figure it out twixt the dungeon and gaol to stumble at the step (though ever the Lady she did apologize to the gaole): drag ’em out of a dark cell into the bright sunlight – no blindfolds – and give ’em enough time to figure out what’s happening before tripping the trigger. Just cuz it’s those people’s idea …

    My preference remains stripped of everything and march naked down Fifth Avenue to whatever leaky old oil tanker will take them to whatever shithole country that will take them. Guess I’m gettin’ soft-hearted in my old-age (don’t call me a liberal).

    Hey, it’s not just the Jump, You Fuckers who think they are irreplaceable. The Minnesota GOP think they are essential workers…. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha h a ha! ƒü¢k those ƒü¢king ƒü¢kers. I can’t think of one essential Republican, anywhere. They are all dirt floors.

    Republican leaders of the Minnesota Legislature suggested Friday that state lawmakers and the staff who work for them should be among the early recipients of a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available.

    “I’m encouraging the vaccines, as one of the priority groups after elderly and some of our front-line workers, that we think about the people that have to be essential at the Capitol,” Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake, said at a forum with other legislative leaders.

    With a new legislative session starting on Jan. 5, lawmakers and staff should be a priority so they can return to in-person work at the State Capitol, Gazelka said at the forum hosted by Fluence Media.

    Damn I hate Republican ƒü¢k€r$.

      No,no,no, NO! Shots!
      Not shot, shots!
      They will get priority for getting SHOTS.

      Okay, Shot.
      Hey, I’m elderly – show some respect!
