This post is going to be a little bit of what happened to me yesterday (and I’m pretty sure that some of you will be able to relate to it) and a little bit from my inbox.
I finally had a chance to spend some time with my friends over the weekend whom I haven’t seen in a while due to the unknown virus from unspecified origin ™. To put it very, mildly things didn’t go very smoothly.
These are friends (and they still are) that I’ve had going back several decades now. We don’t see eye-to-eye on all things politically. Despite that, we still got along over all that time and doing things that friends normally do for one another like helping each other out here and there and attending each other’s family events.
That ended about two years ago when they went into pretty much full lockdown mode, not wanting to have anything to do with anyone. Until last weekend, any attempts to meet earlier have crashed and burned when they would only agree to meet if certain ”precautions” were taken (mask wearing, “vaccine” status, meeting only in medically “safe” parts of the state, etc.).
I’m not 100% sure of what had changed.
Quite honestly, I didn’t care.
They were still my friends and I was still interested in meeting with them after they had finally agreed to drop their ludicrous conditions.
As sad as that is for them, how they choose to live their own lives is their concern. I had been living my life as close to normal as I could without succumbing to the fear and paranoia created by the propaganda promulgated by the government.
I commented last week regarding President Trump’s visit to Washington last week.
Obviously, the legacy media wasn’t going to provide the most glowing coverage of his speech (For the record: They did not).
Oh sure, they had a presence there. Hanging on his every word (along with those speaking there as well). Waiting for that one moment they can glom onto so that they can rebroadcast it as a snippet during the evening news as proof-positive their gaslighting was justified.
Why they consistently fail to display the same level of journalistic integrity when it came to covering “the most popular president in history” ™…well, I’ll leave that up to you.
See the latest example below:
Allow me to go into some of what they didn’t report about, and what some of the rationale is behind it.
I just wanted to dove-tail on an earlier post made by Jason regarding SB-653 to institute a museum tax on Southeastern Michigan.
Well, not ALL of Southeastern Michigan.
Even the backers of this heaping, steaming pile of legislative waste sponsored by the entire Michigan Senate democrat caucus realized that well is running dry, so they were going to focus on the easier marks in Oakland & Wayne Counties instead.
No, I’m not kidding.
They didn’t call them easy marks directly, per se (that would’ve been too obvious), but they did spell out their plan when they went before the Michigan Senate Committee last December to push for this little shakedown.
Check it out for yourself, it’s a short video cued up to the best part. OABTW, be sure to check it out at the 5:23 mark regarding the “Time sensitivity with the bill”
So, what insulting here?
Oh, the fact that not only did four “republicans”, namely Sen. Ken Horn, Sen. Curt VanderWall, Sen. Kim LaSata, Sen. Mark Huizenga, voted to move this bill out of committee, instead of letting it die a slow death, but they voted to have it take immediate effect!
Now, why would a “republican” from Frankenmuth vote to promote a tax hike in Oakland & Wayne Counties?
