America is a mess

American primary and secondary schools, like those in China, have summer vacations. Winter break is different. During the winter vacation in China, there is a Spring Festival in the middle. There is no Spring Festival in the United States, so there are three holidays in winter: a two-week winter break around Christmas and New Years, a mid-winter break for a week in the week of Presidents Day in February, and a spring break for another week in early and mid-April. Our brother’s school had a spring break last week, while our sister’s school had a spring break last week. The timing of the two babies is staggered, which is very annoying. No matter which week you choose to go out to play, there is a baby who needs to take time off. Why can’t the school holiday time be unified like in China? Although China’s provinces and provinces are not unified, at least the winter and summer vacation time of primary and secondary schools in each province is unified. And let alone a state, even the school districts in a county have different vacation times. My brother’s school follows the Bellevue School District, and my sister’s school follows the Lake Washington School District, so it’s staggered. In addition to having different spring break times, the two schools have different policies for COVID. My brother’s school no longer requires masks, and my sister’s school also requires masks. When it comes to wearing masks, the United States is a mess, with each state doing its own thing, not listening to the unified command of the central government, and failing to act in a unified way. From the beginning of the epidemic to the present, the United States has been arguing about wearing masks: should there be a mask mandate? Is it a mask mandate violating? individual rights), whether the government can mandate the wearing of masks (are state-issued mask mandates constitutional), and whether the government can ban the mandate to wear masks (are state-issued mask mandate ban constitutional). Yes, you read that right: some people say that it is mandatory to wear a mask, and some people jump out and say that you are unconstitutional; some people say that no one can force others to wear masks, and some people jump out and say that you are also unconstitutional. Everyone was arguing in the newspapers, on the TV, on the Internet, and even in the courthouse. Parents in Florida are suing the governor of Florida, who says the decision on whether to wear masks in schools is up to the parents, not the school district. These parents believe the district has the right to require masks in schools, and they want the district to enact such a requirement. Arkansas, Texas and Michigan have similar lawsuits over mask mandates. There is also an epidemic prevention policy lawsuit that has reached the Supreme Court. At the end of last year, the Biden administration issued an executive order requiring employers with more than 100 employees in the United States to implement vaccine-or-test (that is, all employees must be either vaccinated or tested for nucleic acid once a week). Employers who fail to meet this requirement are fined $14,000 each. As soon as the order was issued, there was a lot of noise. First, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit temporarily suspended the executive order, and then the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals canceled the temporary suspension in December last year. At the same time, another 11 states jointly filed a lawsuit in the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, asking the court to rule that the Biden administration’s executive order is unconstitutional. By January of this year, the governor of Iowa announced that his state would not enforce the executive order. The Arkansas governor said state employers don’t need to enforce the Supreme Court’s decision. Eventually, on January 13 this year, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the executive order was beyond the authority of the government department. The U.S. president and the central government (aka the federal government[Note 1], federal government) are too weak to even require all people in the country to wear masks and get vaccinated. As for the requirement for a nationwide dynamic clearing, I don’t even think about it. States like the United States are scattered, and the federal government is not birded. It is not a day or two. Federal government has been this weak since the days of the US Constitution more than 200 years ago. To be more precise, it began when the Bill of Rights (the First to Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution) came into effect in 1791. The full text of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: The powers not delegated to the…
