Happy Independence Day

The right tone, the right time.

Trump’s speech last night was just was this country needed.

All of what is going on can be stopped in just a few short minutes if we want to stop it. Riots, damage, and even the dreaded Chinese Flu, Covid-19.  Below are some of my thoughts, and below the fold, a great message by our president..

Covid deaths and high mortality were exacerbated by our governor and others putting recovering folks in with the most vulnerable to the disease.  We knew by the first week in March that the older population was a high risk group.  There is NO excuse.  Oh, and BTW, Hydroxychloroquine works!

BLM? Antifa? Seattle provided one of the greatest lessons with it’s Chaz nonsense.  The Mayor allowed the kids to play ‘country,’ even tolerating two deaths during their playtime, and ruining millions of dollars in local businesses and property.  It was cleared up in 30 minutes the day after those kids wanted to play ‘invading nation’ at the Mayor’s house.

Compliance

It is your choice. - There is no LAW that forces one to wear a mask.

Your mask is making you stupid and subservient.

I’ll admit, I carry one in my pocket.  I do so for when I absolutely MUST patronize an establishment, and cannot enter without playing the game.  I respect private property, and those owners have to deal with their own licensing, etc.

I was even told to leave a hardware store because I wouldn’t comply, so went down the street to buy the paint I needed.  But the doctor’s office for my physical? A slightly different story.

Whitmer, in her need to stay relevant and IN POWER reminds us regularly however that we must wear our masks!  In fact, she uses all the resources the state of Michigan can afford for such propaganda and tweets:

um ..no.

There are a great number of replies to this brilliant tweet that really inspired this post.  Of course there are the typical sycophants and afeared folks.  But true patriots are aplenty, and let her know where she can shove those masks.  I figured I would share some of them.

Just Raise Your Menu prices

Surcharges are crap.

They reek of doctor’s bills.  You get a bill, then weeks later you get a billing charge, then a room charge ..and so on.  No transparency until its all over.

Government, in dealing with covid-19 has screwed over restaurants terribly.  It costs a helluva lot more to do business, and the peak business revenues are reduced by half.  Disposable safety elements are used, and efficiency is destroyed by protocol and staffing limitations.

So much so that Some restaurants are adding fees to their bills.

Devoid of liberty, protests will cannibalize themselves

Had the police brutality protests focused on what we all watched on the video of a bad cop killing a civilian, all of America would be on board for meaningful changes and justice.

Saul Alinsky would be proud of what we are all witnessing on the streets of America today.  His Rules for Radicals tactics are being carried out flawlessly.

The question remains as to whether or not this movement will cannibalize itself, or simply fade with past social change movements.

The reason is simple, the selfishness of the organizers, and leaders within these social groups which focuses on the abuse of power solely from the perspective of one demographic, generally at the expense of the mass majority of everyone else.

An example would be the difference in treatment from both the government and the media towards lockdown, and police brutality protesters who are both protesting abuse of power.

Lockdown and police brutality protestors share a common enemy

It is rare when one topic can bring everyone to stand still, but a virus has and it has revealed and even more dangerous virus--Government overreach and abuse of power. We should be unified instead, we are even more divided.

Each of us will handle ourselves as we feel appropriate, and we don’t require the government to treat us like children dictating terms of our survival, nor do we need them deeming us “essential or not”, and the economic damage caused by the government could be felt for years to come by each of us.

Add to the mix another type of government over-reach, which are the abuses by some in law enforcement, and political opportunists ready to exploit American tragedy.

And WE are considered the dangerous ones?

All I’ve got to say is, “WOW! What a difference 48-hours makes.”

Rather than waste my time focusing on a bunch of community agitators this weekend, I spent most of it focusing on the NASA feeds watching the SpaceX Launch yesterday.

Little did I realize how quickly an arrest over someone using fake ID (and apparently his unwillingness to follow basic commands) quickly spiraled into a series of riots which not only burned a large chunks of Minneapolis to the ground, but spread to a number of other cities across America, including several here in Michigan, resulting in at least one death (so far) and an as-yet to be determined dollar amount of property damage.

Which begs a rather obvious question regarding perceptions and politics?

{And exactly what they might be you may ask yourself? You know the drill.}

The little people are revolting.

This came in my e-mail tonight. I thought that it would bring a smile to everyone’s faces.

According to 100percentfedup.com, Mr. Governor wanted to take full advantage of Memorial Day, and take his powerboat out on Birch Lake.

Does he even sleep in the same house with Gov. Witless?

I guess not, because despite the constant reminders of her “orders” on what passes for “objective” local TV stations literally just this afternoon about not going anywhere, Mr. Governor called ahead to see if he could have his boat in the water and everything ready at the cabin by tomorrow.

Yep, that looks like their ride.

Since everything isn’t anywhere near back to running at 100%, the company he called, politely told him that would not be feasible in his time-frame. Not giving up, he wanted to impress them by whom he is married to.

Here is what he said;

Sunday Sermon – Faith and Freedom

1 Peter 4:12-19

This week, America will pause for Memorial Day, a day when we honor those who have fallen in defense of our freedom. But Freedom is more threatened now than at any time since General Howe nearly defeated Washington’s army on the shores of Long Island in 1776. In an effort to protect us from a deadly virus, governors from all 50 states shut down their economies and issued stay at home orders to their citizenship.

Today, I want to illustrate the Christian faith as the foundation of our freedom. I will begin with two statements, followed by examples that explain and support those statements. The first statement is that America’s Freedom and Greatness is built upon a Christian Foundation. I understand that secularists decry this statement. They believe that our nation’s greatness is due to other factors such as geography, our laws, or our democracy. But other nations have all of those same elements.

Some might go so far as to say that religions contributed to our greatness. But again, look at other religious nations. In fact, look at the most religious nations in the world today, where Sharia Law is practiced, and you will not find greatness or freedom, you will only find oppression and poverty. Yet, here in America, greatness and supremacy in economics is powered and influenced, not by religions, but by its Christian foundation.

Might I suggest a nice rubber room? Be sure to bring your friends Dana & Jocelyn with you.

Talk about disconnect!

Gov. Witless demonstrates (yet, again) how so out of touch she is with her despotic “leadership” method.

It goes a long way towards explaining much of what is in the media over the last few days.
