I’m not listening!
Don’t you hate it when people want to “take to the streets” to “change everything”? Like, maybe we don’t want everything changed.
By now everyone but the most wooden-headed Democrats know that “Man-Made Climate Change” is a big fat crock whose only purpose is to serve as an excuse to grow the government–which has already metastasized well beyond what it should be. It’s their ticket to ride–to install socialism, communism, or any other ism which hands them the keys to the jailhouse.
It’s getting so I automatically disagree with demonstrators the moment I see them. I’m that tired of it.
Not that any politicians were paying attention, but in Chicago this past weekend, seven people were shot to death. And this in a city famous for its multitude of gun control laws. Amazingly, criminals break laws.
New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin brought up a startling fact yesterday, in a guest spot on Mark Simone’s WOR radio show.
If not for the bizarre case of two rogue police detectives who hired themselves out to the mob as hit men (https://themobmuseum.org/blog/mob-cops-saga-still-reverberates-10-years-after-their-life-sentences/), Goodwin said, there would have been no murders in New York City committed with legally-possessed firearms. There are, of course, hundreds of murders done in New York City; but in recent memory, except for the eight people wacked by the cops turned mob assassins, none of those murders was done with a gun in legal possession of its user.
New York City has pretty strict gun laws, too, come to think of it. For some reason gang members and professional criminals simply pay no attention to them. Somehow they always get guns.
Disarming the law-abiding population, taking away their means of self-defense, is a left-wing project, part of liberals’ scheme to grow the government. They can’t turn us into Venezuela if we’re armed.
And no, they absolutely don’t care how many people get gunned down in Chicago or Baltimore or any other Democrat urban paradise. That’s just life in a sanctuary city.
If you go on a diet that’s supposed to make you lose weight, and instead of losing weight, you just keep getting fatter and fatter…. do you stay on that diet?
Of course you wouldn’t. Why, then, do we keep on giving more and more power to a government that doesn’t know what to do with the power it already has?”Let us Save The Planet!”
No way, sunshine.
Once again, college leads the way!
UCLA and Cal State LA have quarantined “hundreds” of students who can’t prove they’ve had a measles vaccine (https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/04/25/measles-quarantine-ucla-cal-state-los-angeles/).
This is in the wake of…wait for it… “one UCLA student has contracted measles.” One! And in Lost Angeles County, with a population of 10.14 million (by the 2016 census–it’s surely more now), there have been… “five confirmed measles cases.”
The horror, the horror!
Meanwhile in New York City, a judge has upheld the city government’s “mandatory” measles vaccine, citing 329 cases of measles in the city, most of them in Brooklyn–where it is estimated that one one-thousandth of a percent of the population has contracted measles.
The sky is falling. We have “a resurgence of measles across the country”! By “resurgence” they mean 555 cases in a country of more than 300 million.
This is another one of those imaginary crises, like Global Warming, that the Left gets all worked up about and uses as an excuse to make things “mandatory.” Carrying on about measles like it was the Black Death! Yes, you could maybe die from measles. You could also die from the bite of a poisonous sea snake that somehow wound up in your bath tub. Both events are highly unlikely.
They want to vaccinate for every known disease, no matter how minor–because, in setting themselves up to be as gods, their ideology does not permit anyone to get sick in a world run by progressive humanists wielding Science like the rod of Moses.
And it really turns ’em on to make all things “mandatory.” And always, always, to grow the power of the government.
What do Uncle Sam and the Candy Man have in common?
What with various jidrools in government proposing to “stop” the natural processes of the earth that affect the climate, create “income equality” by doling out free money to drones who won’t work, and wipe out the human emotion known as “hate” by really and passionately hating everyone to the right of freakin’ Castro… it’s difficult to think of anything that the government will admit it can’t do!
Hence this wonderful parody of The Candy Man, once a mega-hit by Sammy Davis Jr.: The Government Can, by Tim Hawkins. Click the link and enjoy it.
I always found The Candy Man somewhat sinister. But not as sinister as government.
