Crook who headed the IRS back then, now enjoying lavish retirement… which we pay for.
“Please detail the content of the members of your organization’w prayers.”
Remember? The unspeakably corrupt Obama regime weaponized the Internal Revenue Service against Americans, and this demand was made of an Iowa pro-life group applying–routinely, or so they thought–for tax-exempt status.
Now the same disgusting evil people are back in power, and this time they intend to stay forever. At our expense.
Well, they haven’t demanded to see any of my prayers, so I’ll volunteer this one. And I hope they like it.
O Lord our God! Avenge us on these lawless wicked criminals who have stolen our country and have heaped abominations onto it. Smite them and scatter them, O God: let no trace remain of them or of their works. Let their names be erased from the Book of Life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
I heard an ad for this yesterday on our car radio: “Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World.” Funded by Bill Gates and other oligarchs, with the Red Pope tagging along.
Time out! Uh, you can’t “reunite the world” if it was never united in the first place. Not since they drew up the plans for the Tower of Babel, at least.
These imperial wannabes want a global government so bad, they can taste it: and King COVID has given them their chance. They’re so close to herding us all into the same corral! Or so they think. Hey, trot out the celebrities!
They aren’t asking us whether we want a world government–especially one headed by them. But they never ask us. We’re just livestock.
And it’s to be a “concert.” We’re supposed to do what a lot of sad sack “entertainers” and washed-up rock stars tell us to do.
They can all get stuffed. We want our country back. Our country, not theirs. But they think they can snow us with a freakin’ “concert.”
And that’s all the nooze I’m gonna do this weekend.
Pray hard, pray often. Appeal to the Judge of all the earth.
How many undocumented Guatemalan “asylum seekers” did she expect to find on a western Canadian junior hockey team bus? Has “race” eaten up their minds? And what on earth would they ever do with themselves if they didn’t have “racism” to obsess over?
And now they own our government. Doesn’t matter that they stole it. Now they own it.
Oh, boy. Get the whole country ratting out each other.
The app was designed by a government agency, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).
The Chicoms want people to report each other for “denying Party… in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking.” They’ll solve that problem by erasing people’s thinking. Any criticism–er, “misinformation” (Gee, that sounds familiar!)–of the state, the party, of Chinese history, or any action taken by the government is to be reported.
That smacking sound you hear is Western leftids licking their chops in envy.
But at least there’s nothing in the least bit sinister about our sports leagues, Hollywood, and assorted politicians and academics totally selling out to China. It’s for our own good, don’t you know. Socialist paradise. Everybody on the same page, all the time. Or else.
We have nothing left but our prayers; and we’d better use them.
We seem to have entered a grey area–a kind of limbo where our liberties can magically be whisked away before we know it.
Can they force you to receive a COVID vaccine?
Oh, the answer’s simple. It’s either “No, they can’t” or “Yes, they can,” depending on whom you talk to. I’m glad I was able to clear that up for you.
By “force you,” I don’t necessarily mean an edict from the government, a ukase from the czar. They’ll be just as happy, as they always are, to let their puppets in the private sector do their dirty work. So maybe your boss, your airline, your local supermarket, or your condo association can force you to get a shot: if not, you’re fired, or you can’t travel, you can’t shop, or you get kicked out of your nice gated community. They’ve got more tricks than a barrel of monkeys.
The Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act, Section iii under (A) Required Conditions, protects an individual’s right to refuse any drug that has not been FDA-approved. Furthermore, the government must inform you of that right.
But it does not say what happens if the private sector forces you to receive the drug as a condition of your employment, etc.
Then there’s the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, the law of the land, ha ha, which declares, “No State shall abridge the privileges or immunities of any citizens of the United States…” That would appear to clinch it; but again, what if it’s someone in the private sector abridging your privileges or immunities? Historically, at least in recent history, it hasn’t been allowed: you can’t, for instance, have a restaurant that refuses to serve persons under six feet tall. But it didn’t stop government or anyone else from handing out special privileges and favors labeled “affirmative action.”
It seems that our laws in this respect are so loose and imprecise as to leave us totally in suspense as to what we can expect. Will they force us, or won’t they? And if an experimental drug has hideous long-term side effects that don’t show up until ten years later… well, who you gonna call? Gee, sorry about that.
I’d feel better about all this if I wasn’t increasingly suspicious that it’s part of a clever plan to bury our liberties under a world government–all for our own good, of course–run by perverts and cannibals.
They’re not calling it a “vaccine passport,” but that’s what it is. Actually, it’s more along the lines of Communist China’s “social credit system,” in which they use your cell phone to take note of everything you say and do. Say the wrong thing, and you won’t be allowed to ride the bus.
I don’t have a cell phone. There must be people in Britain who don’t. Would that mean I can’t buy a drink until I get one, and do whatever you do with an “app,” whatever that is, to allow the government to keep tabs on you?
Words almost fail me. Honk if you think this is a horrendous violation of personal space and liberty.
Here’s another little chip knocked off our past: a small thing, but if the leftids keep on doing it, these small chips will add up into big ones and we’ll be cut off from our moorings and set adrift on a sea of ignorance.
When Herman Melville’s classic of American literature was published in 1851, its full title was Moby-Dick, or the White Whale. Nineteenth-century publishing was big on subtitles. But here, as you can see in the book cover reproduced above, they’ve changed the subtitle so it’s just or, The Whale.
Now I’m not going to re-read it with a score-sheet to keep track of all details added to or subtracted from the novel for the sake of political correctitude. The one change in the title itself is enough to make my point.
Melville used “the whiteness of the whale” to transform Moby-Dick into something more than an ordinary whale. This whale is different: it’s something that anyone with his head on straight will want to avoid. But Captain Ahab is obsessed with hunting it, and you know how that turned out. The narrator, Ishmael, quotes the Book of Job: “And I only am escaped to tell thee.” Moby-Dick has killed everybody else and sunk the whaling vessel.
So taking away the whiteness of the whale damages the novel–and why would they want to do that?
It’s another little bit of Cancel Culture, of course. What leftids want to do is cut us off from our past: cut us off from all thought but theirs. Like, human life never truly began until these culture commissars came along and invented everything we’re supposed to know from now on. Only what they want us to know. Only what they want us to think. Only what they want us to read.
There is a weird ideology on the loose that’s responsible for many of our troubles–a form of “Ye shall be as gods” which I call hyper-humanism.
Its message: With The Smartest People In The World in charge of everything, nothing bad can ever happen to anybody. Unless, of course, some Enemy of the People doesn’t do his job. Or stoops to some newfangled crime like Climate Change Denial or Misgendering. And if something bad does happen, it’s probably because our rulers haven’t yet been given enough power over us.
The priesthood of this pseudo-religion is a mish-mosh of scientists, noozies, entertainers, and assorted celebrities great and small–with Far Left Crazy politicians firmly seated at the very top of the pyramid.
Denying God, they assign a kind of godhood to themselves. They believe they can do everything that God failed to do, forgot to do, or didn’t do because He doesn’t exist. Just stay frosty while they go about breaking eggs–and if you’re one of those eggs, well, too bad–until they’ve made the world’s greatest omelet ever. Presto! No more war, no more disease, no more inequality! No more bad anything. Man is perfectible by man.
Which is not true; but as many have observed, truth is not a Far Left value.
It’s going to be hard for good things to happen to us as long as we believe such foolishness.
Last week it was Mr. Potato Head. Whose turn is it this week, to be cancelled?
I have discovered that the only fun that wokies and liberals know how to have is to spoil other people’s fun. Your unhappiness is the only thing that makes them happy.
See, back in the 1940s, a few of Dr. Suess’ books had “images” in them that reflected racial stereotypes widely accepted at the time. But you’re not allowed to be the 1940s! History begins with the revolution, comrades! Before that, nothing! For anyone to see these pictures would be… “hurtful.”
Some observers–Steve Turley and Mark Simone, just to name two I heard yesterday–seem to think the Cancel Culture will ultimately cancel itself out of existence. Talk about a thing that we can do without!
But moving on–what will they cancel for us next week? Gotta keep goin’ or you lose momentum! Gotta keep canceling, even when all that’s left to cancel is each other.
The sooner they get around to that, the better.
One could almost forgive them, if they found a way to cancel the Democrats…
