“Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, here I am, Stuck in the middle with you. (Stealers Wheel)” Yes, we are stuck in the middle, thanks to the idiots in local government including the County right up to the greasy governor, Gavin Gruesome Newsom. The panic-demic continues thanks to the fear generating media and the mindless drones who pose as our neighbors and citizens who refuse to think for themselves and weigh all options.
Only recently we have national voices appearing, making the same points I made months ago. We have outraged real patriots who understand their freedoms are being assaulted by the imposition of martial law to combat a yearly event known as the flu. It was interesting observing the difference between what happened in Sacramento at the capitol and what happened in Michigan where protestors arrived with guns. It was also interesting what happened in Texas where armed men aided in the opening of a bar.
In Sacramento, the California Highway Patrol officers guarding the Capitol building and maybe the moronic legislators within decided to remove protestors from the steps with the warning they would be arrested if they didn’t comply. Ryan Messano of Vallejo was one of 32 people, mostly women according to him, who were arrested because he and maybe they couldn’t hear the order. While Messano says they were treated well, perhaps the officers forgot that they have a duty to defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
In Michigan, the protestors demonstrated the point of why the Second Amendment is so important. Unlike California’s liberal and illegal immigrant paradise, the sheep weren’t there for the shearing. Anywhere the authorities can command an overwhelming force, our rights and freedom go out the window. California is one step from being a Cambodia, mainland China, or Russia, the political models most admired by those on the Left.
We now have the liberal idiots of the US Senate, Kamala Harris, Bernie “Commie” Sanders, and Ed “Marx” Markey of Massachusetts wanting to give $2000 per person during this unnecessary shutdown to everyone. I, for one, have not even seen the first $1200 which was promised a month ago. Basic economics and monetary theory tells you that you can’t print money with impunity and not destroy the value of the existing money. Greece was nothing compared to repudiation of debt which is coming from the US.
Destroying the economy and those who have enjoyed the quality of life we all have over the last century means nothing to those who hate what America is and what it has accomplished. This is their perfect world, where you have to rely on government for your subsistence and right to prosper. The collective is not merely a Borg concept. Marx and Engels would be so proud.
Is there not a single oppositional voice in our county? We have the county public health department extending the shelter in place command until May 17th. We have our council imbeciles conducting the second reading of an ordinance to fine you $500 for your first offense and $1000 for a second, just because compliance to unconstitutional mandates is more important than their oath of office to protect your freedom.
To show you how easy it is to avoid and void these draconian attempts at public control, we all still have the loopholes of grocery shopping, filling up with gas, going to the doctor or the bank, or visiting an “essential service” . So if you are out and about and not going to one of these venues, lie and tell the officer you are. If they want to fine you for “social distancing” infractions, we are all in a lot of trouble. I need to start carrying a tape measure.
