Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to why Republican Rep. Jim Walsh, from the Grays Harbor city of Aberdeen, has had his keycard to the Capitol buildings canceled? Anyone?
Yes, the reason is that Walsh has not presented the required papers to the state indicating that he has been vaccinated against the CCP virus. The state health Nazi edict that all state employees must be vaccinated or lose their jobs has resulted in the termination of about 1,800 state employees. Not all those employees were terminated — many quit voluntarily. Do you understand what that means in the state of Washington? It means that many well-paid state employees gave up their cushy jobs and state pensions to resist the Democrat government’s edict that they must submit to an invasive medical procedure to keep their jobs.
Walsh is an elected official, and the state cannot fire him for any reason, but it can make his life difficult by locking him out of his own offices and the legislative chambers where the people’s work is done. Or, normally is done. The official who explained that Mr. Walsh could work remotely like most legislators have for the past 18 months cares not for the people’s business. He answers to a Higher Power, the state health department, which has demonstrated that it is so powerful that with one stroke of the pen, it can deny people livelihoods and freedom of movement. Those who do not yield, will be denied access.
I am ashamed to live in this state.Published in
