Yes! By hiring some twaddler to prattle about “diversity and inclusion” and make sure people’s minds are right–because Diversity is all about coerced uniformity–the Internal Revenue Service proposed “to help make America stronger.” You wonder why people are not struck by lightning for saying such things.
Yeah, the government’s gonna do all those wonderful things that God never got around to doing, and all it takes is infinite money, infinite coercion, and The Smartest People In The World calling all the shots. If only we give them enough power over us, they’ll give us paradise on earth.
“Wow! This was the hottest year ever! Man, that Climate Change is really heatin’ up, we’re all gonna die, we’re doomed–doomed, I tell you!–unless we give the government a lot more money and a lot more power…” blah-blah-blah.
This is an Associated Press nooze article on an NBC website; in other words, there is virtually no likelihood of it being true.
It’s always the hottest year, the hottest month, the hottest day. I guess they’re feeling their oats, expecting China Joe Biden will cow-prod America back onto the Citizen of the World Climate Change bandwagon, bringing back John Kerry and all the rest of the commie retreads. This is what happens when you allow criminals to steal elections.
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…
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?
When can we stop wearing the stupid face masks? When the Chinese Communist Doomsday Virus pandemic is over? And when would that be?
Oh, but Far Left Crazy has a great idea! Wear the face masks forever! For the rest of your life! ‘Cause even if COVID-19 goes away (which it won’t!), there’s always gonna be one or two other diseases out there that all-wise, all-powerful Government MUST prevent from making people sick!
It’s ideology, stupid. It goes like this. A. There is no God. B. That’s no problem, because the state can do everything God would do, or should do, if He really existed. Just think of Sammy Davis Jr. singing “The government can!” C. The more power Government gets, and the bigger it grows, the more it can do for us. D. If we keep on feeding it and growing it, the state will eventually be God (or good as) and nothing bad will ever be allowed to happen to anyone ever again.
But, see, for all that wonderful stuff to happen, the state has to control people’s behavior–at least until Science can find a way to control people’s thoughts as well.
This is Satanic ideology. A seduction brewed up in Hell. The devil’s rather proud of it: with it he’s ensnared whole nations.
President-for-Life Dr. General Venerated Sage Ho Lee Kow said his new policy of “removing” anyone suspected of being infected with the virus “worked like a charm.”
“We don’t need to tell people to stay inside their homes,” he said. “They know their neighbors are just waiting to call us the moment they see anyone step outside. So they just naturally stay indoors!
“Socialist violence is really the gentlest form of behavior modification,” he added. “As of this moment, our glorious country has no whatchamacallit virus. I repeat: none!”
East Shinola law requires that anyone who contradicts the president be “re-educated” at an undisclosed location. Most of them are never seen again.
“We are waiting to buy cell phones from China so we can check on everybody, moment to moment, and know where they are and what they are doing,” the president said. “We have learned that the more control you have over people, the happier they are. Without an all-powerful government, they just get in trouble. Everything we do is for their own good.”
Does he put his thumb in the soup? Good thing he’s not real…
All other things being equal, would you rather eat in a restaurant where the waiters and waitresses were neat, friendly, and attentive, or one in which the staff was slow, slovenly, inattentive, and got your order wrong, half the time? We don’t have to spend a lot of time on the answer, do we?
But the state of Virginia is debating a new law to add “hairstyle” to the protected categories covered by the Virginia “Human Rights Act” (https://wtvr.com/2020/01/29/racial-discrimination-hair/). Supposedly their chief concern is to protect “African-Americans’ traditional hairstyles.”
Question! How do they know an applicant wasn’t hired because of his or her hair flying around all over the place? Like, maybe the interviewer didn’t like the applicant’s attitude, state of personal hygiene, or some other detail that suggested that this person probably wouldn’t be a good employee? I mean, who’s actually going to tell the “human rights” wallahs, “I didn’t hire so-and-so because I don’t like his hair”?
Meanwhile, America’s colleges and looniversities habitually–and flagrantly–don’t hire conservatives. Studies indicate that libs outnumber conservatives 12-1 as professors and instructors. That’s okay? No discrimination there?
Do these people recognize any limitation at all to the scope of government? (Hint: No.) Have they nothing better to do than protect assorted hairstyles? (Hint: Probably not.)
At what point does government stop growing? I really do wonder.
