Alabama Governor Puts the Kibosh on Vaccine Passports

Not gonna happen on Kay Ivey’s watch!



As with any major, national-scale trouble, the coronavirus provided us with a number of concerns and conspiracy theories purporting that this tragedy could be used to impinge on our freedoms in one way or another.

This isn’t unusual, though.  Troubling times often produce these narratives, as Americans looks to make sense of the chaos around us.  And, let’s not forget that there are plenty of examples of governmental overreach to be found in the wake of widespread calamity; the advent of the TSA an the PATRIOT Act being just two recent examples.

As we return to quasi-normalcy in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are worries among some that the government could use the event to tighten their control of our lives.

Trending: McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

The bill, which prohibited state and local governments from issuing vaccine passports to Alabamians, also prevents businesses in the state from refusing service to a customer based on their vaccination status.


The legislation does not prevent employers from requiring their employees to receive the vaccination.

Ivey was resolute in her beliefs.

“Since the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, both Dr. Harris and I have said that we would not mandate vaccines in the state of Alabama,” Ivey said on Monday. “I am supportive of a voluntary vaccine and by signing this bill into law, I am only further solidifying that conviction.”

Ivey concluded her statement by urging residents to get the jab.

“I made the choice to get the COVID-19 vaccine and glad for the peace of mind it brings,” Ivey added. “I encourage any Alabamian who has not gotten their shot to roll up their sleeves, and if you have questions, consult with your health care provider.”

Vaccine hesitancy has been a bit of an issue in the nation’s attempts to reopen, but leader like Ivey have long understood that personal freedom is a far more powerful expression of American life than blind subservience will ever be.


McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself

Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.



John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange:  McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. The investigation is ongoing at this time.

Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich

You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?



For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food.  Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt.  There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king:  The unbreakable Subway.  Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
