Michigan Getting Pummeled by COVID After Firing Unvaxxed Healthcare Workers

Michigan’s Henry Ford Health System (HFHS), which owns five hospitals in the Detroit metro area, is getting battered by new cases of the Bat Flu. HFHS has roughly 32,000 employees, and 686 have tested positive for the Chinese Sneeze in the past seven days. That’s roughly 2% of their staff.

But wait, this is omicron. Almost no one dies from it. What’s the problem?

HFHS also closed 97 beds, roughly 5% of their 2,000 total beds, due to “staffing shortages.” Reminder: HFHS fired 400 workers last October for not getting vaccinated. This clownish decision came after they were hit by “unprecedented staffing challenges, only exasperated by this pandemic.”

Roughly 1,900 employees were granted exemptions from the HFHS vaccine mandate.

So you were low on workers and you canned 400 more? Now Michigan is setting records for COVID cases. Who would make that kind of decision?

Ever since the idea started being floated around among the chatterati, I've opposed Covid vaccine mandates on two bases: principle; unworkability. My mistake wrt mandates was thinking that gooberment pols and bureaucrats would realize mandates could not work and would be smart enough not to try it. I was wrong, and they are trying it. And learning the hard way that mandates are unworkable, this being a localized example of what is happening in many/most US states.

Those pesky unintended consequences again, hospital admin types. They'll bite you in the ass every time when you're too stupid to figure out your virtue-signaling will inevitably take a dump in your bedpan.

I was born in that leftist-run shithole -- but it wasn't that way then. It got that way thanks to leftist, mostly black, politicians in Detroit and Wayne County. Their greed, their propensity for nepotism, and their unmitigated corruption created what was once a good place to work and raise a family into a ...

... leftist-run shithole.

yep.  they may have more people die from lack of medical care because they don't have trained medical staff available due to firings than people who would have died from catching the fauci flu from said unvaxed medical staff. 

Well Done Michigan!!!

Remember when California wasn't a leftist-run shithole? That's where (I'm embarrassed to admit) I was born, lo, these many, many moons ago and the same thing applies: it wasn't one back then.

Speaking of Detroit and leftist shitholes, this is what happens when you allow the federal government to waltz in, bail you out, and run your company into the ground.

Congratulations, General Government Motors. You've exceeded your own very low standards -- downwards.

For the First Time Ever, the Best-Selling Carmaker in America Isn't an American Carmaker

2021 was a miserable enough year, but apparently, it has coattails. As last year’s auto sales numbers come in, a sad new reality has come to light: America’s best-selling carmaker is no longer an American company.

Japanese automaker Toyota sold more cars in the United States than any other manufacturer, edging historical bestseller General Motors out of the top spot. This marks the first time since 1931 that GM isn’t the top-selling automaker in the states. Before them, Ford was number one.

This marks the first time in history that the top-selling carmaker in the United States is a foreign company.

Toyota has been at the top of global sales for a decade, partly because General Motors began ceding foreign markets during the Obama years. This followed the Obama administration’s takeover of GM in 2009, under the guise of rescuing it from bankruptcy and saving American jobs, earning the carmaker the derisive nickname “Government Motors.” The once-proud iconic American manufacturer has never been the same since.

Toyota’s victory over GM caps a year when the American carmaker’s sales shrank 12.9% as it sold 2.2 million vehicles in the United States. By contrast, Toyota’s sales increased 10.4% in 2021 compared to 2020, as it sold 2.3 million cars to Americans.

Analysts believe Toyota was able to sell 114,034 more cars in the states than did General Motors because the domestic company had supply chain issues. Gearhead site The Truth About Cars says that GM “claimed its numbers were down due to the global semiconductor shortage that continues to disproportionally impact American automakers. While there are a few sound logistical reasons for that, the chip deficit also becomes a convenient excuse for brands that cannot seem to get their general supply chains under control. No matter how you slice it, GM looks to have screwed up managing inventory and Toyota is picking up the slack.”

Anyone who tried to buy a car last year — new or used — ran up against the car shortage that continues to plague Joe Biden’s America, and which certainly created a market opportunity for foreign carmakers who had their act together.

Will Toyota hold onto the top spot in 2022? “Thanks to our phenomenal dealers and world-class purchasing and manufacturing teams, our inventory continues to improve and we’re preparing to introduce 21 all-new, refreshed or special edition vehicles in 2022,” said Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) senior vice president Jack Hollis in a statement on the company’s website, which announced their 4th quarter sales numbers. However, when reporters asked Hollis for a comment specific to TMNA’s sales supremacy in 2021, he downplayed the milestone. “Yes, we did surpass General Motors in sales,” Hollis said on a Jan. 4 call. “But, to be clear, that is not our goal, nor do we see it as sustainable.”

For their part, GM seemed more optimistic about their prospects. “In 2022, we plan to take advantage of the strong economy and anticipated improved semiconductor supplies to grow our sales and share,” said GM North America President Steve Carlisle in a Jan. 4 press release.

The globalist-socialist in the White House has demonstrated repeatedly that he doesn’t value American sovereignty, either in border security, citizenship, or heritage. Handicapping U.S. manufacturers with crappy socialist policies and the failures they predictably cause, thus handing over domestic commerce supremacy to foreign corporate giants, fits in neatly with the legacy his disastrous term in office will leave us.
