I didn’t post a rant from Ron last week. I was busy celebrating Thanksgiving with my sister. Here is what I should have posted last week,
Y’know . . . unless I’ve badly misread US history, especially the Constitution, elected politicians just don’t have the authority to tell us how to celebrate traditional holidays such as July 4th, Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve.
I mean, unless there’s some sort of crisis calling for martial law or other draconian measures of civic control, a governor or mayor or PotUS simply cannot prohibit our doing what we’ve done now for hundreds of years.
And it’s doubly certain that no NON-elected twit, one who is accountable to no one, can say “Do this” or “Don’t do that” where our jobs, our food, our culture, our traditions are concerned.
Twerps such as Faux Chi can make recommendations, but they cannot issue edicts; they can’t restrict movement; they can’t control behavior . . . regardless of how terribly much they want to demonstrate their self-assumed superiority.
Hey, remember the 15 days business? The “flatten the curve” crap which throttled the economy, destroyed businesses, eliminated jobs, created hoarding panic? Damn, guys . . . it’s been 9 months now and STILL they want us to cower in our huts to “slow the spread.”
Holy Shi’ite! People are going to congregate. Telling them they can’t celebrate Thanksgiving or go to ball games or demanding they stand 6’ apart is about like telling them to grow an extra set of legs or flap their arms and fly to work instead of driving.
“Fifteen days” my ass! Now they’re saying that no matter how effective the vaccines are, we’ll never be able to go back to the way things were a year ago. And they’ve changed their minds more often than MacDonald’s changes its window waitresses.
How many times have they reversed the “facts” about masks? That particular goal post has been moved so many times it’s no longer even in the ball park. But anyone who fails to comply with mayors’ or governors’ lockdown orders is hit with lockUP.
And a lot of the Kool-Aid drinkers and Karens will snitch on people they see without masks or crowded restaurants or standing in lines almost touching each other.
Crouching in your cave and hiding from a virus with a 99.5% survival rate is not living. I didn’t see any asterisks or parentheses in the Constitution which said that its provisions are suspended if some self-possessed little twit tells us we must surrender our rights and freedoms because of a “pandemic” which affects only the elderly and the already infirm.
The power-lusting elite are working to deprive us of the very activities and behaviors that make America what it is . . . or at least what it used to be when I was growing up. If we suspend activities which make us what we are, then what do we become?
Ben Franklin, among his other pearls of wisdom, told us this: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
The REAL problem with all this . . . this behavioral modification scheme . . . this “new normal” . . . this “new world order” . . . is that once a society surrenders their liberties to government, they almost never get them back intact.
This little shit is a bully, a blowhard, a hypocrite, a plagiarist, a research pickpocket, a fraud, and a serious danger to our society. In 9 months he’s done more damage to this country than Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Sanders, and Hillary combined.
And people are STILL letting him get away with it !!!!
