"People don't want them. Hammering down on them to get this vaccine. How many businesses are going to lose employees? How many schools are going to be shut down? How many? How many of these companies are going to be fined? This is requires pushback and response. And that's what the state of Arizona is going to do. You know the freedom of choice is a cornerstone of who who we are, and I've heard people who are all the Rivera was saying, your freedom can infringe on my felt my health or my family's health. If you're vaccinated, you've got nothing to worry about. That's what we've been told. That's what I believe. I'm not worried about unvaccinated people. Unvaccinated people should be worried. I don't have to worry. Do I think it's the unvaccinated people that are causing hospitalizations right now? Yes, I do. I absolutely do. But I also think smokers have more cases of lung cancer. I also think heavy drinkers have more cases of liver disease. I also think that there are a lot of different things out there. So you want to talk about it affecting other people's health? And you look at Children that can't get the vaccine. Yet They are the least likely to have severe illness more than anyone else. They are the least likely to have severe illness or death because of Covid 19 period. End of story. Then there are the special category of people that are compromised. They can't get a vaccine so that they shouldn't be in danger. Because of the people that have the vaccine. I just how far do we continue to go to take away people's freedom of choice? And what you're doing is not just telling people they must do something, But what you're doing is also relegating those people to second class citizenship. It's a horrible way to do business. I I just I hate the division of this. I understand the desire to get people vaccinated. I I appreciate it. I applaud it. I agree with it. But forcing people never works. It's not American. It's not an American principle. As far as it being legal. We're going to find out about that. We're going to talk with Monica Lindstrom coming up here in just a few moments. She is R K T A. R.

"Protect economy improve covid treatment. Joining us now is somebody who can talk the legal side of it because she's only a judge and the lawyers who is not a doctor, Monica Lindstrom, Alright, Monica. How do we impact this thing when it comes to the lawsuits, because there's going to be a plenty Wow. You know, I was surprised when all this came down, and the first thing that pops into my head was, Oh, yeah, Let's open the courthouse doors because there's going to be lawsuit after lawsuit and I think they're going to be focused around the lawsuits are going to be focused around number one that Biden abused his power and authority. They're going to say that Biden did not have the ability or the authority to be able to throw down these rules. Um, number two. They violate the Constitution because they're not taking into consideration any type of religious beliefs or personal freedoms or medical conditions. Now that being said there are some exemptions out there, and we've talked about those before that, If it's a deeply held religious beliefs, or if it's a medical condition, you have to have exemption. You can't force somebody. Put their health in danger or to violate their religious beliefs, so there needs to be some exemptions there. But these are the types of lawsuits that we're going to be seen. I don't know what's going to win yet because we're still in the world of a pandemic. Right and different laws are made in different procedures are followed where we were in states of an emergency, so Uh, those lawsuits will be coming very quickly. And don't be surprised if you see more employees finally lawsuits against their employers who tried to implement these rules because they have to Monica Lindstrom joining us so the president mandated all employers with more than 100 workers. Require covid vaccinations or weekly tests. He's you're getting. It's not just see, I think he's got the I think he's probably got the power to do that. If it was just the vaccine. Everybody's got a vaccine. Maybe that wouldn't roll. But there's a second option. If you don't want the vaccine. Now you get a choice. You can get tested. A couple times a week at work. Do you think in private businesses that's going to roll and that's what we're going to see. Well, that's exactly right. I put that under the exemption column right, because if you're going to put out a rule like this legally, there's always going to be exceptions, right And so you can test or you have to have two of these. You know the religious belief for the medical belief. I think that with the fact that he spoke to the big box stores and that the home testing kits are going to be sold at cost. That will help a little bit with this kind of stuff to fly. But last night I was in Walgreens. I saw one of those PCR tests and they were what $134. I mean, are we going to force people to have to pay that amount of money? Twice a week or whatever it may be to show that they're not covid positive. I got one for 20 bucks. Well, yes, I know. I've heard of them being much cheaper. I don't know why the one I saw was so expensive, but if they're selling them at cost that will help But our employees going to start saying to employers. Well, you have to pay for these tests or the employers say government. You know, we're losing employees if we follow these rules, because Biden said that this would be coming down in an OSHA rule. And that's the OSHA is the government entity that oversees the health and safety of workers. Talking to Monica Lindstrom, Our legal expert. Monica said that Trump's lasting legacy, uh, is going to be the courts and it's 6 to 3. And as we all know, it's about the interpretation. Of the Constitution. Uh, if it gets there You got six conservatives in theory, 5.5 conservatives because I think everybody looks over and you know, Chief Justice Roberts. But what's your sense there and how they're going to interpret some of this? Wow. That is a loaded question right there. I mean, when you think of conservatives, you think of okay. Are they conservative when it comes to health? Are they conservative? When it comes to government power, Are they conservative? When it comes to finances, you know what exactly are they conservative about? Because you might see some of these Traditionally conservative justices saying, Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Maybe this is going too far because we're dealing with money. We're dealing with power. We're dealing with health issues. You can be conservative on one side about finances. But not about personal rights. Do you know what I mean? Because I think it's a really sure it feels government because it's the government feeling like they're overstepping and as we all know, With conservatives tend to be for less government and again, it's all about the interpretation. Yeah, And remember, it's the Supreme Court that just shot down the CDC moratorium and said Basically, that the CDC didn't have the power to keep the eviction moratorium in place That was, you know, exceeds their authorities, so to speak. So if they're willing to do that, in a pandemic, they may look at this and say Whoa, by you're going just a little too far here with requiring these tests, you know once a week or twice a week or whatever, and requiring employers To do this private businesses to do this, that that's overstepping their so we could see that happened. I wish I could give you a better answer. The only answer I can give you is there are going to be lawsuits. This issue is, uh, politicized. It's divisive. Not only over our dinner tables, right? But in the courts because judges from around the country have come up with different decisions. When it came to the CDC eviction moratorium, then they're going to come up with different decisions when it comes to the vaccines and Biden power. All right. Monica Lindstrom Katya, our legal analyst. Thanks for joining us and giving us some insight. Alright. Bye, guys. All right. Hey, check coming up next.

"Companies are already requirements. United Airlines Disney. Tyson's food. And even Fox News. Even Fox news, so he's talking about private companies. Mandating the vaccine. Yes, he is right about Fox News. Everybody on the air, and everybody in that building is vaccinated had to be vaccinated and got vaccinated. Same with United. Um, you know, I torched that airline for years. For years. I've torched them and I'll say this. You know, as a joke, they got my business back. I am for companies that would like to see Covid go away. Now I know it's not going to go away permanently. But I'm tired of living in this world where it's like. All of our hospitals are full. We've got one out of four people in Arizona. The one is a child that is getting covid. Because we don't have people that want to You know, keep them safe with a mask or with testing or or that kind of stuff. So with the president today, whether you like him or not, guy was bold. I mean, this was this was here's what we're doing. This wasn't well. We'll try and get out of Afghanistan. This wasn't well. I'll give you my vice president and she'll fix the border. That was all horse crap. What Biden did today was bulk. You don't have to be in favor of it. But it was bold. He's mandating all employers with more than 100 workers require the vaccine. Or a test and all federal employees and that includes contractors. So if you have 10 people and you're and you contract with the federal government just because I don't have 100 You're still going to have to Have everybody vaccinated or or a test, And I don't know how that's gonna work because I don't know how long how we're gonna get that many tests available to have, you know, all right. Well, I mean, there was literally 80 million people. Uh, you know, you're not gonna get 100 and 60 million test weeks not going to happen. Well, and I've texted Monica Lindstrom. Hopefully she's going to join us a little later. This is what I asked. Can Biden legally mandate private businesses do this? Okay? I don't have the answer that not a lawyer. I mean, another federal government can do a lot. Uh, Local governments can do a lot in terms of rules and all that kind of stuff. But what happens? Let's say there's an Arizona business with, you know, 101 employees. And that business says we're not doing it. What is the penalty? Is there a penalty? I don't know The answer to that question, But to me, this sounds right. To me. This sounds how are we getting out of this vaccine? When the whole world is begging for vaccine here in America, we've got a portion of people that are dragging us down. They don't want it. They'd rather go to the hospital spent $20,000 instead of going to get a free vaccine, and you're not going to change their mind, But here's the thing if they work for a private company now And I think most of these private companies are going to be honest are in line with what Biden once I think they like to get the vaccine mandated, Um If that can happen, we can really turn this pandemic around. But You know, we'll see the legalese of it. I mean, you say it all the time. Everything goes to court, and you're right. Everything does go to court. But at least at least for the first time that I've seen we have a president this in Biden this year. The president decided to stand up and do something about something. Well, he's going to try again, You know, But if if they look, it goes back to this people are going to scream. You know my freedoms and and people are going to You know, everybody wants to be able to have a choice about stuff to go get a new job. You're absolutely free to go get a new job. You know, 100%. There's your freedom. You're free to go get a new job. And I also think you should be free to look at the at your your. You know your state or your country. It's my body. My choice. I can't sell my damn kidney. So, you know, I mean, you're trying to tell them that you might want to say that to Texas. Yeah, You know, everybody's like, but here's the thing. All right. See you. Beds were not getting crushed. Not yet. No, no, no. No. And if you've got, uh and we're that wave, we've gotten to the point Now where we have got enough people have had the shot and not people have contacted and and had it. Naturally, which is turning out to be better than than everything unless you have both. Which is me, uh than the reality is is I don't think we're gonna have the flare ups we've had before Florida. They were going through it. Idaho only had 36%. I think it's what he said. Okay? I know. But listen to what you just said. I don't think we're going to have the flare up, dude your weekend, But if you just said it on the air this summer, this thing is over. We both said it. This thing's over my life my life 1000 times better than it was last year. What's that? My life? My life is way better. It's better this year, but it's not good. It's better. It's totally fine. If some people look you're you're not. You're staying at home because they're asking to stay at home. And you guys couldn't take your trip. Outside of that. Your life is justice. Pretty much normal as can be. You have to sporting events. We had crowds all I mean, your life is just as normal as can be outside of that. The the the and your wife was vaccinated and she still caught it. Right. So thank God for the vaccine because I probably would have been very sick and she wasn't sick at all. Really? She was she was fine. The point is again. How are we going to get out of this thing? We need somebody to lead us out of this thing. And, you know, I didn't think it was going to be Trump. I didn't know if it was going to be Biden. I still don't know if it's going to be Biden. I can tell you. I know what it could be Doug Ducey, but somebody's got to lead us out of this thing. And and and maybe some of the things that the president put in..

"And strong opinions. The mic broom head show, Katie our news, 92 3 FM, and the key to our news act. Hey, thanks so much for being here. Appreciate you spending some time with the show. Um, Whenever we have legal questions, we go to Arcata, Our legal analyst Monica Lindstrom. She joins us now we're talking about now is the sports betting Decision, A local judge said. He's not going to stop allowing gambling to start here in Arizona, but he also expected that this was going to be appealed. Can you talk a little bit, Monica? First of all, Hello. And can you talk a little bit about this decision and what it really means what their argument was from the tribe. Yes. Hi, Mike. So what happened was a couple of the tribes. I believe it's the the Iava Pay Press Kit tribe. I think it was. They basically said, look, allowing the sports gambling to go forward violates Arizona Lot. There was an initiative passed by the voters. That said that tribal casinos were the ones that had the right for gambling and restricted gambling anywhere outside of those tribal areas in the tribal casinos, and the plaintiffs said, Hey, look, You can't do this gambling thing because that violates the initiative what the voters passed years ago. As it allows gambling outside of these areas, and you can't just amend that when it's the voters that put the law in place. It's the voters that have to amend the law or to change the law. And the judge said, no, no, no, It's not that it's been amended. The original loss restricted certain types of gambling. It did not completely outlaw gambling in areas outside of the tribe. So the judge said, You haven't proven your case so I'm not going to stop this from going forward. Not only that, but tribe You waited until now, just days before this is set to kick in. When you've had all this time, knowing this would happen. That's a problem so clearly you're not really going to be harmed by this. So, the judge said, I'm not going to stop it. But the judge knows that whoever were to lose with his decision. He knew they would appeal it, Which is why he did it really fast and I heard them make that comment. Do you believe they have a leg to stand on on appeal? Or do you agree with what the judge's decision was? Well, they have a leg to stand on because they do have a legitimate argument that they can bring under the statutes, but based on what the judge said, I think they have an uphill battle for one. They waited so long and for to the language of the law says Restrict. It doesn't say completely outlaws gambling outside of the tribal areas. So I think that that's going to be a real challenge for them. And the fact that no other tribes in Arizona are fighting this. They're the only one. Okay. So two other questions. Now I get I get to put you on the spot with a couple of other things. One is the decision that we heard from the attorney general's office, saying that the Tucson's vaccine mandate violates state law. What What is the mindset going into that decision? What? What is the attorney general's office saying in this Okay, so the attorney general burn of it. She's the state's attorney right. He can issue opinions to guide local and state governments about what they can and can't do now the A G looked at the law. And he basically said that the state and local governments cannot require vaccines that violates Arizona law. Arizona law has been in place that says that you cannot force people to get a vaccine or a shot. If they don't want to. Now it's different. If you're talking about the health care, industry and government hospitals and things that's different, okay, that we're not talking about that just er average, you know, local or state government employer or while government Cannot require the vaccines That's against Arizona law, not to mention that it can violate religious beliefs, which is a constitutional protection. And also, if there's a disability, let's say I was immuno compromised, or I had some kind of disability that did not allow me to get the vaccine by requiring me to get that vaccine that violates my rights as well. So basically Berna bitches coming out and saying, You can't mandate this. Because it violates the Arizona Lawn, some constitutional areas. When you look, I don't know if you saw the case in in Florida in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, there's a guy that owns a different apartment complexes in Fort Lauderdale, and he is telling people that you can only move into my apartment complexes. If you are vaccinated. What are the legal arguments of whether that's legal or illegal to do what? What would be the two? You know different arguments in that? Wow, This is the first time I've heard of a landlord doing that. Although I can understand why they would want to do that. There's usually shared ventilation systems, for example, hallways. That you're sharing and it? What's that? I I don't know. I didn't. Are you there? Are you still there? Oh, hold on. I don't know what that was. All of a sudden I got some sound on my phone, shared hallways. And then I noticed random stuff, um, shared hallways and stuff. So they're probably concerned about getting sued from other people in the apartment if they were to get sick from somebody else in the apartment, So the landlord wanting to do that I can understand. However, the landlord had some Uphill battles as well. You've got the Fair Housing Act. That's a federal act that says You can't discriminate against somebody based on religion, race, sexual orientation or sex. You know those types of things And religion. So if they don't get the vaccine for religious beliefs, and you discriminate against them for that, that violates the Fair Housing Act in the anti discrimination laws. So that he has a battle that he'll have to fight for those. Yeah, I don't think he's going to win, but what we'll see. Yeah, I think the the reason why I love having you come on is because there is a difference between what we perceive to be sometimes. What would be the right thing to do and what the law says. You know the difference between shall and must, and you're such an expert in the areas of what the president is in some of these things you've got to be. It's got to make your head spin. Sometimes with these legal battles over some of the stuff with Covid because of some of them have to be new, and some of them have got to be just the same. A different argument of are the same argument of a different topic. Yeah, that's that's exactly right. We kinda have to dig in and say, Okay, wait a minute. There was an argument like this before. Is Covid like that? Yeah. Okay. I think it is. Or this brings up enough interesting new points. That may be new law needs to be here. So you're exactly right. Monica. It's always a pleasure to talk to..

"A statement saying that the Tucson vaccine requirement breaks state law a little bit of this. This is Katie Connor from the A G s office, explaining that decision. General Revenge has said in a statement today that not only is the city of mandate illegal Tucson could also be held liable for attempting to force employees to take the vaccine against their beliefs. This is again I maintaining that we are losing our minds over Covid 19. I think it's dangerous. I know it's dangerous. I know people. I have friends that have died. I I know people who have lost loved ones. We all are. I have friends that are in the hospital as we speak. I have friends who have been in the hospital and almost died but have recovered. Um, it still has a huge, overwhelming survival rate, and I'm not trying to tell people not to get the vaccine. I have gotten the vaccine. I'm going to consult my physician about a booster shot. And if my physicians the same two that I went to that I asked them about getting the vaccine in the first place. Tell me that they think it's advisable to get a booster. I will be one of the people that lines up and gets a booster shot. I'm going to go and get medical advice from people I trust. What I don't want is when we become a society that believes we're going to dictate what other people do all in the interest that worried about public safety or the Constitution uses the phrase the greater good. Um, we we abuse that so much. The idea that you know what's best for somebody else is not true. And what's best for a family member. What's best for a person what they believe in. There are people that are smart as smart as you are. They are as common sense oriented as you are that have a very strong belief against vaccinations. For a multitude of reasons, and I don't necessarily agree with it. But I'm also not going to question somebody else's deep seated beliefs. You know, when it comes to faith, you know, I was raised Catholic. I taught at a Baptist church for 10 years. You can imagine how all over the place my theology can be sometimes, But I'm a Christian. I don't push my beliefs on other people, but you're not going to make mine waiver. I know people respect people that are of a multitude of different beliefs and some that believe nothing. There are some people that are absolute atheists that I have a great report with. They're not trying to talk me out of what I believe. I'm not trying to force what I believe on them. And when you start talking about any interest of public health, it's one of those things that we can. We should we must navigate. We just have to You don't live a perfect life. I don't want to go in some place there. And I've mentioned during the first wave when master required to walk into a restaurant and distancing and Plexi glass and all that stuff was up. I would go places and I would mention the places around town that I frequented when I didn't do was I didn't start bashing the places that I didn't agree with. But there were a couple of places that I went into. And I thought Nope. I'm not going in. It's too crowded. I'm not going in. And that was my choice. I didn't feel safe. I didn't go the idea that I was gonna walk in and say, the CDC says So. You get six ft apart and you put on a mask and let's put up plexiglass. That's not my place. You run your business the way you want to, and I'm going to frequent that business are not frequent that business based on What I You know what I want What? I what I feel safe with since When do we start telling each other What you have to do? You asked me what I think you should do. I'll give you my opinion, and if I'm going to lose respect for you because of the decision you make, then that's my problem. And if you're going to lose respect for me for the decision that I've made for myself personally, I'm giving you the courtesy to let you decide because that's what's best for you. We should do that for each other. This, um this new virus or this mu mutation of this? They're saying they're watching. They don't think it's going to be bad as the Delta variant. We're watching the numbers. We're seeing What's happening. I watched the numbers every day, and it becomes evident to me what I think are the right things. But that doesn't mean that I have the right to force my will on someone else. And when we start talking about public health I understand a desire of deep desire to get through Covid 19. I absolutely do. Forcing someone to use a medication or not using medication, Um, forcing someone to use of a vaccine or not use a vaccine. I just don't think that's an American principle. We navigate each other. We take care of each other. We look out for each other, and we work around each other when there are things that we disagree on. And that's just how things are supposed to work. And this Battle that's going on. I I hope it We're over it soon we're going to have we're going to get through this one way or another together. I think right now it's become such a fever. No pun intended a fever pitch with this Because we thought we were past it. We really let our guard down in the sense Not not, um, with the covid response, but with our beliefs and what was happening, Masks came off. Plexiglass went away and things were working their way back to normal. And then when it hit again, we thought here we go again, and we were angry. It's almost like that relapse. You know that we we? We were cured. Now there's a relapse. Now. What do we do? But instead of fighting with each other, why can't we have reasonable respect for each other? Why can't someone that is a believer? A huge believer in the vaccine. Say to someone who isn't I disagree with you, but you got to do what's right for you. And then avoid that person. You want to invite him to your house. You don't want to go into their house. I understand you have every right to do that, but to force them to comply with something especially putting something in their body. I don't I don't agree with that. I never have and I never will. It's part of who we are. As America. We navigate each other.

Arizona: Banner Health Imposes Vaccine Mandates for Employees
"Health has announced. All 52,000 employees are required to be fully vaccinated by November, 1st. To our legal analyst Monica Lindstrom says Banner has a strong reason for doing this, but the hospital system may be on the hook if something goes wrong during the vaccination process if an employee gets the vaccine due to banners requirement, and then there are injuries due to side effects banner may find itself involved in a lawsuit. There will be exemptions allowed. Banner is the largest private employer in Arizona. Dr. Simone Wild, is an infectious disease specialist with South Shore health, She tells Arizona's morning news. She understands why Banner is mandating vaccines.

"This week. Um goodness. Few hours ago we heard about how police were searching for a father if you will put that in quotes because not much of a father kidnapped his 18 month old daughter. Couple days ago, We talked about a father and that's again. He, um, kidnapped the baby. Killed the mother. Is the mother fell from the car and he stopped the car did a U turn and ran her over and he dumped the child so he could get away. Baby is all right. Fight for two for for, you know, three or four days Now we've had two babies kidnapped by these awful human beings who like to call themselves a father. How does a mama spouse How do you keep Yourself safe. If there's an abusive spouse that you've tried to, you know, you had a baby with what? You're trying to make sure that that husband or ex husband or ex boyfriend doesn't come near you Joining us is Monica Lindstrom, Katya, our legal expert, Monica. You do a lot of work like this. How can women keep them themselves protected from an abusive spouse who wants to come back and try and take that child? Well, first? Let me say that it sounds a lot easier than what it is for those people that are in healthy relationships and situation. They often think why don't you just leave? Why can't you just leave? And it's just not that simple. One of the things that we know that they can do is they could go get an order of protection. They can go to any court in the state of Arizona and get an order of protection, which is essentially just a stay away order. But it is just a piece of paper. And so even though that might seem like it's easy to get It doesn't have a whole lot of teeth and it right, But at least it's a step. Another thing they can do is they can go to a shelter. There's a lot of domestic violence shelters around the states that can help and one of the ways you could find that besides just Googling domestic violence shelters is calling the state's 211. A lot of people might not realize that you know we have the 411, which is information. We've got 911, which is an emergency. Well, there is a 211 system in Arizona. That gives a lot of information about where to find food where to find medical help, where to find shelters and domestic violence helps. So that's those are a couple things there that they can do. So Monica, and it's weird because we think, kidnapping and and but these were the fathers. We don't know the second incident what that's all about, and it's It's tough because it's not like you know, like these. Some of these guys are just horrific and they used these Children as a way to hurt the mother. You're trying to get their Children? Yeah, other times they get. It gets ugly because there's a battle between the mom and dad over the child. And it is their fine balance there in some cases, because you know if you're a parent, you don't get to see your kid and they think that something's going wrong and you feel desperate. You do stupid things. And I think a lot of these situations you're dealing with highly volatile individuals, because if someone has enough reason or patients and their mind and they don't have those mental issues that are affecting them, they know that the way to go about this is to go to court. Go file a request in court so that you can have parenting time with the child. Or maybe you have to go to try to cut off someone else's parental rights, which is very, very difficult, by the way, but a lot of these situations that we hear about and a lot of the abusive situations you're dealing with people that are very emotional or they have addiction issues or they have mental help, instability and common sense and reason doesn't come into play there. And so number one when you're about ready to get into a relationship, start noticing If those kind of triggers are present number two if you're already in that situation Try to figure out to get out and to get out soon. No love. No amount of bedroom behavior is, you know good enough right to be in a relationship like that, But bottom line, you have to look for help because it's really hard to do this on your own. And I would say most importantly, if you know someone that's in an abusive relationship, or if you're a police officer out there or accounts or or a teacher just Listen to them. Sometimes they just need someone to listen to them. If you turn around and tell them what to do, or you judge them, or you're very condescending to them. You've just isolated them and alienated them and they'll never come back to you for help. So the first thing you could do is just listen and then try to help them. Great info. Monica. Thanks so much. Bye, guys. Thanks from Katya, our legal analyst. So maybe there's somebody out there that you know. Or maybe it's you and you find yourself and In a little bit of danger, do it, Monica said. Absolutely, you know, do a Monica said. Make sure that you're safe. Make sure that your child is safe because Boy, these two men? Yeah. This week. My goodness.

Joining us now, sir. Super legal expert she is, you know, hanging out there. I think she's on a yacht in Bali right now. Not quite sure. Monica, Lindstrom and Monica. We're going to get a real audit of the Dominion machines. What Yeah, And what's interesting is that the Dominion has a defamation lawsuit against Who is it? Is it Trump is that the campaign is a Giuliani. They're suing him for defamation for saying bad things about the equipment, So it's just kind of interesting. You're right. This does just keep coming back and back and back. So we've got the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. You're gonna vote to allow these machines to be looked at audited all that kind of stuff? Um, Monica? I mean, when I look at this isn't that good became so we can't We if we do this, and we prove, obviously that the machines are fine. Can't we shut up? Dopes like ghosts are or Biggs and you stop hearing the ridiculous filth coming out of their mouth. About how Arizona's elections were rigged. Well, I think there's positives and negatives with what's going on. So the miracle But county supervisors like you said they voted tow have to independent firms audit the election equipment. Now, some would say this, they shouldn't do this. This is a complete waste of taxpayer money because there's nothing to say that there was something wrong with the equipment. There's been no evidence of fraud or misbehavior during the election whatsoever. We've had what 10 I think different lawsuits in the state of Arizona regarding Behavior around the election and any possible election fraud, and all of those have either been dismissed or they're waiting to be dismissed because I think one of them is still up. The Supreme Court Supreme Court has been denied shirt on it yet, so there's some that will say, Look, this is outside of what they're supposed to do. There's no reason for it, so they don't have the authority to do it now. Others would say, Look, this is great. This is their board of Supervisors, Some elected politicians here actually being proactive. And trying to check to see if we really do have a problem or not. So I think there's two sides to it. I mean, I think you you just you do this to prove people wrong. You know, you do this to prove people like Kelly Ward. Hey, You know what? Not only can you not win an election in your lifetime, but your reputation is garbage. And you think that all of these lawsuits were worth a crap and they're not, And I mean that I think this is already been done. I mean, when her lawsuits and others lawsuits were dismissed because of no evidence of election fraud. They've already been proven wrong. So I guess I'm just surprised that they're doing this. I think it's a good thing if it doesn't cost too much like a spike in the end zone, But that's really what it is Also, what people are saying is Look, nobody got to hear any of the evidence. So much of the stuff inside of the courtroom. Monica was They were trying to basically come in and try to pause the certification and they were trying to show there wasn't any real fact finding of what they were trying to say that they didn't felt the paperwork, right? I mean, that's what the people on the right or arguing is. No. Our evidence never got heard. You know, That is an excellent point. Because everything was done so quickly. Under Arizona law, would you have challenges to elections? It has to be done quickly, especially with the presidential election because they're timeframes involved. It's a good point that perhaps not are the public didn't hear everything that was going on. And perhaps not all the evidence was completely flushed out having a good reason to go forward with this exactly in any of the things that fly. The lawsuits were dismissed. And and so much of what they're, you know, they're arguing is look, evidence takes time. Well, that you had two issues here. We have the making. Sure the integrity of the election is solid going forward and that nothing untoward happened that takes time to investigate. The other one was putting a pause on the certification. And one was against time and the other one we can still move forward with and that's what they're gonna argue Now. One thing to remember is Arizona law does require that voter information be protected and that their actual votes be protected as well. So with the county or what? The board of supervisors looking at this, arguably they're trying to protect Arizona law and follow Arizona law to make sure that the information is protected and there was no fraud. And there was no misbehavior regarding this So legally, they have the right to do this legally. They need to do it. Some could say, because they need to follow the law and make sure that we're protected. On the other side. There hasn't even been any evidence whatsoever of fraud. So is this really necessary? All right, Monica Lindstrom Katya, a legal analyst. Thank you. Monica will talk too soon. E think this, you know, let him do Let him do what they need to do.

They could say Wait a minute. This is an emergency use authorization. The FDA hasn't put in enough time for yet. It hasn't really been legalized down the normal channels. And so until that happens, you can't force me to do this. And he is the person's right. The employer can't force you to do it. But the employer can still fire you. Now is considering it's an emergency youth authorization right now you could turn around and do the employer and say You shouldn't have fired me because of this, So see how it it could happen that it just turns into a giant losses. The bottom line. The employers can make you get the vaccine or they can fire you. And then if you don't take it and you get fired, you have to decide whether you can actually see them or not. Chances are you probably won't get very far. It's crazy, though, because you know, employer you be worried. Well, what if I fall? Somebody get it. Somebody gets sick. Is that gonna come back on me? What's the best thing for employers to do for their people? Is it to entice them with some something days off cash bonus, something like that. I think that that could definitely help. I think the best route right now, until this is fully authorized, and not under the emergency use authorization is too strongly encourage their employees to do it. Make it a team effort. Let's get everybody safe in our workplace so that we can make money. Everybody's happy and will incentivize you. You know, maybe everybody put the name and to AH, drawing for a trip or you give them a bonus. Something like that. Give them lunch every Friday for the next quarter or something like that. It's the little things that go a long way. With employers and employees, so that would be the best route. And then after the Kobe vaccine has gone through everything it needs to go through, and it's authorized under normal channels. Then the employer would have more leverage, so to speak to go ahead and require a bottom line for now bribed them. Monica Lindstrom is joining us. We have 30 seconds being worth schools. And they mandate that kid's probably not this year. But maybe in 2020 to get vaccinated for Cove it yes, they can. In fact, New York has already required vaccines.
