Can you even begin to imagine the mischief, the horror, that would ensue if human nature really were infinitely capable of being purposely shaped and molded by whoever was in power? And vain attempts to do it don’t turn out so well, either.
Our country’s founders knew that. Voices crying in the wilderness…
There are only two things you can do with an insatiable lust to dominate others: enter into an abusive marriage, or get elected to public office. Most of us are born without this lust. But as citizens, most of us are victims of it.
As Thomas Jefferson once pointed out, where the people fear the government, you find tyranny; but where the government fears the people, you have liberty.
They have lost their fear of us, and that’s why they so freely abuse us. You know what happens with leopards or alligators that lose their fear of human beings. “Progressives” are like any other predators. We really do need to rein them in.
Really–this has to stop. But of course Democrats have no intention of it ever stopping. The Great Virus Panic is their ticket to ride–the universal excuse for screwing around with other people’s lives. For instance:
How long are we supposed to live like this? How long are we supposed to put up with this? You’d think we’d be ashamed to be governed by such nimrods. You’d think we’d cry “Enough! Enough!” and send them packing.
Heaven help us, it’s all been in my lifetime, all this culture rot. We’ve become the Democrats’ squeaky toy. They weren’t able to corral us with Climate Change, but the Doomsday Virus did the trick. They love what it’s letting them do to our country!
May Christ Our Lord deliver us out of their hands.
Woo-hoo, that’s old-fashioned! Imagine–limiting the power of government! How the dickens are they supposed to create utopia if we tie their hands behind them? Really, who knows better what you should be eating, day to day–you, or some faceless bureaucrat hooked up to an algorithm? Can we get modern here?
Gee! Which bad nooze should I cover this morning? There’s so much to choose from! I guess that’s always the case when a country is teetering on the edge of destruction and its enemies are yelling “Jump! Jump!”
So what should it be? California Gov. Gavin Noisome pledging to phase out the internal combustion engine by 2035–does he plan to still be governor in 2035? Or how about that big-hearted Democrat governor of Virginia, who says whenever there’s a botched abortion, just let the baby die. And ooh-ooh! Michigan’s Democrat governor sez her state will be “carbon-neutral” by 2050! I know witches live a long time, but that’s ridiculous. And I’m not sure what, exactly, “carbon-neutral” means, but I suspect it has something to do with Them taking away your air conditioning.
Or I could just cover the riots, ’cause there’s always riots now–somehow that’s supposed to get Democrats elected–or the drive to canonize Ruth Bader Ginsberg, or maybe the latest Hunter Biden crime festival… How do you choose?
O Lord our God! For the sake of ten just men, you would have spared Sodom. For the sake of those of us who call upon your name, and pray to you for deliverance, spare our America! Your enemies are our enemies, O Lord: tread them underfoot, and knock their hands from our throats. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Oh, boy! Looks like they’re headed for lifelong 24/7 supervision by government needleheads in dear old Britain. Say goodbye to adulthood, cousins!
Now a local government job center has ruled that the owner of a small salon can’t advertise for a part-time “happy, friendly stylist” because… wait for it… that would be “discriminatory” against UNHAPPY people!
What? Is happiness or unhappiness now an immutable characteristic, like skin color, which must be micro-managed by nimrods in the government? Once you’re unhappy, will you ever be allowed to be happy again? Well, gee, if you can change your flamin’ “gender” anytime you feel like it, you should be able to get some kind of drug or surgical procedure that’ll change your mood.
Is any human transaction too small for the government to interfere with?
Is the salon owner supposed to settle for a “hostile, terribly depressed” stylist? Someone who’ll say to a customer, “Siddown, you ugly cow! You think you’ve got troubles? Hah! My life sucks like you wouldn’t believe!” And then starts sobbing her eyes out.
Does this look like a prosperous, busy city street to you?
First they told us 2.2 million of us were gonna die unless they shut the country down. Then we found out that prediction was based on a deeply-flawed, worthless computer model. But that didn’t make the Experts change their policies.
Is this why we had to quarantine healthy people? Is this why we had to let trillions of dollars go up in smoke? Is this why we had to allow Democrat mayors and governors to behave as Mussolini wannabes? This was a reason to destroy thousands of small businesses? This was why we shut down all the schools, too–but I’m not complaining about that. Public education needs to be shut down.
Is this what we’re going to do from now on, every time a disease comes along? There are many diseases more deadly than the Chinese Communist Doomsday Virus. Do we shut down for all of them? We can only enjoy our liberties when the environment is completely free of germs that cause disease?
For this we’ve trashed six months out of our year so far? Democrats were rooting for a recession; so they went out and made one.
This must never be allowed to happen again. Big Science has a lot to answer for.
