Why don’t we put those that are unvaccinated on an unofficial lockdown? Those of us that did our part should not suffer for the ignorant. Why don’t localities mandate using vaccination cards as a means of entry and deny those that aren’t.

Need marital investment advice. My FIL recently gave some money to my wife which she wants to invest in rental properties. She wants me to do all the leg work (find a property to buy, rent it out, do the legal work, maintenance, etc.) and is open to hiring agents, property managers, lawyers, etc. I am happy to help her build her portfolio, but I am afraid of my FIL’s involvement.

Any advice on how best to coach employees through this if I am losing hope that things will change?
