Is it the end of free choices

Real Estate Agent 40CA1147997

Recently we had NAR say it is time not only to be ethical in our business practices but to also watch what we say verbally as well as on any social media.

Being raised in the '60s, I was taught not only to respect my elders but everyone I came in contact with.

Now, this morning I hear the New York State bar association would like a mandate that everyone has to receive the COVID 19 vaccine, otherwise, you would basically not be allowed in public places and in my case interact with clients!

NYS Bar Association proposes state coronavirus vaccine ...


Because of HIPPA laws, it is impossible to know for sure who really has had the virus or died from it!

I  am not 100% sold on the government or any other institution saying this what you will do to be in or out in a public place.

This is just my opinion and hope in the meantime everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Ray.... I was ethical and respectful long before I was a member of the NAR. I don't need the NAR to "assist" me in this regard.

As for NY State mandates... what can I say? It's New York. It's one reason we left 21 years ago. Hopefully it will not come to that.

Crazy times, and the opportunity to sow fear in the hearts of the public is rampant.  It is time to calm down which is long overdue...

Happy Thanksgiving!  A

Yes, Ray, quite the situation, public safety versus personal freedoms. Hopefully we can all strike a satisfactory balance.

We are to "listen and obey".... When I was growing alternate ideas were considered good and encouraged.

Hi Raymond- I'm with you as well. I find it a bit hypocritical to see governmental figures wanting to dictate to us what we do in public (and private) yet do not heed their own words. No one has to tell me to be ethical. Instilling fear in citizens has been tried by other countries (shall I name them) to gain control.

Morning Raymond,

Fear is a motivating factor, however, I fear the government is flexing their muscle for bigger restrictions.  Not good, not good at all
