“You ain’t gettin’ off this floor till you do me a hundred pushups, kid!”
Big Government has an insatiable hunger for our freedoms–all our freedoms. And the persons who have that hunger just will not leave us alone.
Here’s some mischief from the Obama Era. God knows what they’re getting up to now, eight years later.
Big Brother Still Watching… and Still Hungry
Here all they wanted to do was turn our lives into a perpetual high school gym class with a surly teacher who makes us do calisthenics all period long. Oh–and spy on us, in case we eat unauthorized snacks without their written permission.
Liberals–wiping out adulthood, one life at a time.
At least once a year we hear another batch of reports of NOAA and other government agencies, along with their allied “scientists,” getting caught fudging the figures on “Climate Change” or “Global Warming.” But no matter how often they get caught lying, you can’t get people to stop trusting Big Brother.
Talking to Statues
You might as well be talking to statues.
These last few days of March have been brutally cold, up here in Jersey–I mean January-type cold, temps in the teens. And the other day there was a terrible pileup on Route I-81 in Pennsylvania: people killed, dozens of cars and trucks wrecked–all because of snow, ice, and fog. Hardly March 27 weather at all!
Yeahbut, yeahbut! They’re experts, man!
Trust them at your peril. They are not honest.
Now they can’t even write a sensible headline
Remember this? In 2018 the Boston Glob tried to organize a full-scale editorial war against President Donald Trump, and claimed it had rounded up 100 other noozepapers to join in.
Newspaper Claims Its Anti-Trump Jihad is Growing
I still haven’t adjusted to our nooze outlets sounding like the Peking Review, vintage 1967. It still disappoints me, and makes me ashamed of the years I spent as a reporter and editor.
Left to the mercies of Big Media, we would literally have no reliable source of news. It’d just be all Big Brother, all the time.
I really do hate what the Democrat Party and its useful idiots have done to America.
Nope, no extremists here!
Some of you have received these Facebook “extremist” warnings. Honk if you think “extremist” means Antifa or BLM.
Not to Facebook, it doesn’t.
Are You an “Extremist”?
And note the continuing efforts by leftids worldwide to train people to rat each other out. Do you know someone “at risk of becoming an extremist?”
Well, yeah, it happens that I do! Her name is Nancy Pelosi and she’s really gone off the deep end, I think she might be crazy. Isn’t it about time you guys carted her off?
They are out to erase our liberties, and they don’t mean maybe.
We know you can’t afford a genuine Hunter Biden masterpiece to hang in your living room. Like, who has half a million dollars? Well, the enthusiastic buyers do, but we haven’t been told their names.
But all is not lost! Snorty Artistic Enterprises Inc. has a whole collection of genuine imitation Hunter Biden art works, including his immortal “Stick Man/Stick Woman.”
Imagine being able to pick up one of these for a mere $25! We are sorry that The Big Guy won’t get his $2.50, but that’s Snorty’s problem, not ours. (Be careful answering your door, guys!) And best of all, each painting features an incoherent scrawl that you can say is Hunter Biden’s signature!
Show your love for Big Brother by spending money on the closest you’ll ever come to Big Brother’s famous nephew.
And remember–the Justice Dept. is watching you!
When they’re not busy misidentifying fossil pigs as fossil people, high-powered scientists are always on the lookout for new ways to strip us of our freedom. Like this one.
Hot Dog! A Neural Interface System!
Hey! How come nobody ever invents something that can help get government off our backs? Like, press a button and a Deep State computer fries itself, all data lost forever. That would do us some good. But no–they’ve just gotta invent more ways for Big Brother to feed us to the fishes.
I’ll have more to say about this later today, when I review a Young Adults “science adventure” story from the 1950s that accurately predicted this research.
Pretend it’s a Democrat debate, and raise your hands–how many of you have forgotten just how bad things were getting, under the Obama administration? Uh-huh. Time heals all wounds, eh? So let’s look back seven years:
Big Brother is Listening
Do we really, truly, not mind being governed by people who say America is full of “Christian terrorists” and the state needs to collect millions of citizens’ phone records so they can find out who’s naughty or nice?
If you’re even thinking about letting the Democrats come back into power, take a cold shower and never think of it again.
Once we let them back in, we’ll never get them out.
“It seemed like a good idea at the time…”
The Daily Mail estimates “over four thousand” Swedes have had microchips injected into their hands (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6306569/Thousands-Swedes-getting-microchip-IDs-inserted-hands.html). Now aren’t you jealous?
Invented by a “tattooist and body-piercing specialist,” the procedure allows its beneficiaries to enter buildings, concerts, trains, etc. without having to pay cash or turn in a ticket.
Wait’ll somebody calls in sick for work so he can go fishing, and the chip shows the boss he’s not at home, but at the dock where the chip allowed him to rent a boat. Oh, well, you should have no secrets from your boss, right? You should certainly have none from Big Brother.
Not to worry–they don’t yet have the technology for the chip to report your every movement. And once they have that technology, you can just have your chip removed, right?
What could possibly go wrong?
The Daily Mail was hyperventilating the other day, erupting in this headline: “Mind-reading machine can translate your thoughts and display them as text INSTANTLY” (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5565179/Mind-reading-machine-translate-thoughts-display-text.html). We have to make allowances for what passes for “journalism” these days.
As usual, whether it’s transplanting human brain tissue into rats or using super-powerful magnets to make you think unrestricted immigration is a good thing, the reason given is “potential medical breakthrough”–in this case, to restore communication to people who are unable to speak. Of course that would be a truly excellent thing. It would also inevitably be misused.
If it were real. A lot of Daily Mail readers thought the whole article was an April Fool’s prank.
Anyhoo, this thingy is supposed to work by analyzing “the combination of vowels and consonants that we use when constructing a sentence in our brains.” Gee, I know people who couldn’t constructed a sentence in their brains if their lives depended on it. I know people who think mostly in pictures. I daresay most of us do both.
Some folks are worried that the scientists will use this technology to get at people’s secret thoughts and put them on a screen for everyone to see. It could also be used to find out who really loves Big Brother and who’s just fakin’ it.
It reminds me of a Bible verse, 2 Timothy 3:7, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Come, Lord Jesus, come…
I don’t know about your town, but in my town, these little signs are popping up all over, admonishing us that “Hate Has No Business Here.” The yard sign version says “Hate Has No Home Here.”
Now, why would you need these signs unless you thought the town was chock-full of “haters” in need of your instruction?
Entering the YMCA today, I saw one of those signs on the door. So I asked at the desk: “What is ‘hate’?” They didn’t know. They were embarrassed. They directed me to their supervisor. After some hemming and hawing, she revealed (1) “Oh, the Chamber of Commerce gave us those signs to put up” and (2) “It’s just about everybody being kind and welcoming to everybody else.”
“Who hasn’t been doing that?” I asked.
“Well, you know!”
“No, I don’t. Tell me.”
“Um, it’s like, well, people in the parking lot angrily honking at each other because they want a parking space.”
I don’t think mere obstreporating ought to qualify as “hate,” but by now I realized I wasn’t going to get any answers more coherent than that.
Somebody else asked me why I didn’t like the signs. “It’s too Red China/Big Brother for me,” I said. “Especially when nobody can explain what they mean by ‘hate.’ Are they trying to get rid of a basic human emotion? Or is it Democrat-speak for ‘Thou shalt not vote for Trump’? I don’t like a bunch of faceless liberals telling me how I ought to behave–especially when they themselves have been spouting real, hot hate non-stop since Election Night.”
Now I wonder what will happen if I ask them if I can put up a “John 3:16” sign somewhere on the premises of what is formally known as the Young Men’s Christian Association.
What do you want to bet they’ll say no?
