Did He Say ‘Insubordinate’?

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee announces run for 3rd term

“Government’s the only thing we all belong to.”  –DNC video, 2012

Democrat governors throughout America seem to be taking this motto literally.

Once upon a time we had “public servants.” Remember those? Now we’ve got masters.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has publicly complained about “insubordinate” citizens in his state (https://www.wethegoverned.com/they-cant-arrest-us-all-so-they-will-bankrupt-us-inslees-plan-to-suppress-insubordination/). They’re supposed to be subordinate to him. For Upstairs, Downstairs fans, this would be like Mr. Hudson the butler ordering Lady Margery to take out the garbage.

Inslee’s mightily cheesed off at the Snohomish County sheriff for not carrying out his plethora of lockdown mandates and wants him recalled from office. There’s no room for properly legislated laws in Mandateistan. And because he can’t count on the sheriffs lately, he has ordered his state Dept. of Labor and Industry to enforce his mandates, threatening small businesses with $10,000-a-day fines for noncompliance. He ordered this radical change in L&I’s function without any debate or public hearings. Louis XIV couldn’t have done it better.

Another one of his bureaucracies, not too long ago, got snookered for “hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars” by a Nigerian fraud ring. You’d think anybody, by now, wouldn’t fall for one of those scams. Gov. Inslee is angry because this resulted in some of his insubordinate citizens making jokes about him. Ah, well, easy come, easy go.

What strange new mutated kind of America have we become, when governors can rule like 18th-century despots and not only get away with it, but be applauded for it by more than a few of their drunk-on-socialism citizens? Who more resemble subjects than citizens.

Again, shame on us.


Movie Airhead’s Knitted Face Mask

I didn’t want to do any nooze today, but I thought it best not to let this one slip past us.

She was in a movie once, so Alyssa Milano never loses a chance to pontificate to us peasants who make it possible for her to be paid lots and lots of money for work that absolutely doesn’t matter.

Her latest caper–a knitted anti-virus face mask (https://www.tmz.com/2020/05/23/alyssa-milano-hand-knit-crocheted-face-mask-jokes-coronavirus-family/).

Behind this ignorance is a leftid’s instinctive preference for government-imposed restrictions. They are drawn to tyranny as flies to decaying meat. So let’s take nationwide house arrest and try to turn it into… a new normal! Grin and bear it! Ain’t face masks cute?

If you don’t understand what’s so ridiculous about a knitted anti-virus mask, take a crocheted baby-blanket or something and try to carry sugar in it. And viruses are much, much smaller than grains of sugar.

Yeahbut, yeahbut! She has a filter in it! Oh, well–!

We have seen, from one end of the country to another, Democrat governors and mayors display a positive lust for controlling people’s lives. The Chinese Death Virus has given them an excuse to do it–and are they ever enjoying it! Like the nit out in California who decreed you can be on the wet sand at the beach, but not the dry sand. What a clever little high school Charlie.

I think we can be reasonably sure that anything pitched to us by a Far Left Hollywood air-head is just about guaranteed to be a spitball.

They keep setting dates for lifting the restrictions and then, when we’re almost there, moving them ahead for several more weeks. It’s their way of trying to get Donald Trump out of the White House.

They wouldn’t do it if they knew it’d result in a white-hot angry voting public punishing them by putting the Democrat Party out of business forever.


‘Big Brother’s Going to “Help” Us’ (2016)

Presidential washout Mike Bloomberg banning large sodas in New York

In light of the devastation wrought by the government’s response to the Chinese Communist Death Virus From China, this post from 2016 seemed particularly telling.

Big Brother’s Going to ‘Help’ Us

Have you noticed how the “choice” crowd can never find anything to do but take away your choices? Like here–they’re going to “help” us make better choices by making the choices for us and busting our skulls if we don’t like it. All for our own good, of course.

As the Lord told Isaiah, Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? (Isaiah 2:22).

 


Socialist Paradise Conquers Virus

Brutal South American dictators once put a contract on Ed Koch's ...

The People’s Democratic Republic of East Shinola has claimed “110% victory” in its war against the Wuhan coronavirus (http://www.totallyfakenooze.com/east-shinola).

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.”


The Face-Mask: Our Badge of Submission

We need a powerful 'people movement' in support of wearing face ...

I had to go to stores today, so that means I have to put on my anti-virus (they wish!) face mask–my badge of servility, the outward token of my submission to the all-powerful, all-knowing state.

But everything’s a “mandate” now, we don’t debate legislation anymore, and our masters never ask us what they ought to do; no, they tell us what we must do. Or else.

And anybody who voices opposition to the continued “lockdown”–you know: like they have in  prisons when the prisoners get rowdy–is sure to be called a White Supremacist, even if he or she is not white. It would appear there are some folks who like the lockdowns just fine and hope they go on and on until we get permanent socialism. If they hear the word “freedom,” they sneer.

Do we really want to be wards of the state, our whole lives? In a condition of perpetual childhood? Perpetual dependence? Who needs freedom, if the High And Mighty are going to take care of you forever?

God, who really is all-powerful and all-wise–and all-righteous, too! Don’t forget that!–endows us with our freedoms and respects them. He will not use us as puppets.

For sinful, fallible, broken, foolish mortal men and women to play God, to act as God, is obscene and blasphemous. They guarantee our safety, but they can’t deliver. They promise all sorts of utopian goodies, but it’s only empty words. The only thing they’re really good at is abusing and oppressing people. They’ve got black belts in that.

We must never again be stampeded into anything even remotely like The Great Lockdown of 2020. If there’s a crisis and there’s no time to discuss it now, then be doubly sure to discuss it later, as soon as possible. Discuss and debate. And if the action taken to deal with the crisis is unlawful, wrong, ineffective, or worse than the crisis itself–then for sanity’s sake change course!

But with only secular fat-headism to guide us, and in ignorance of God’s ways, we aren’t going to do that well with any crisis.

P.S.–One of our neighbors just came to our door and gave us a bottle of rubbing alcohol. She is now my friend for life.

There are a lot of people who don’t go bad in bad times: and praise the Lord for that.


Tinpot Tyrants’ Addiction to Power

Illinois Governor JB Pritzker to extend stay at home order through ...

“All children under sixteen are now over sixteen…”

One by one, Democrat governors are losing lawsuits filed against their overzealous “lockdown” orders. Important reminder: “Lockdown” used to mean a tactic used by jailers to control their prisoners. They’ve lost every one of these court cases so far, but it hasn’t blunted their appetite for dictatorial rule.

So yesterday the Democrat governor of Illinois decreed an “emergency rule” that would make it a criminal offense (Class A misdemeanor) to disobey him by re-opening your business (https://illinoisfamily.org/politics/governor-pritzker-wants-to-criminalize-lock-down-opposition/). He also wants to extend his “emergency authority” to 150 days, up from 30.

He needs an emergency 48 hours in the pillory, or at least a public ducking.

Have you noticed that every single one of these Mussolini wannabes is a Democrat? That’s not an accident.

It would be nice to believe these governors are simply doing the best they can under very trying circumstances.

But that’s a thing I can’t believe.

 


Taking a Break

What does Afrikaan Beat, by Bert Kaempfert and his orchestra, have to do with today’s up-to-the-minute nooze?

Absolutely nothing! That’s why I’m posting it.

I’ve been scanning nooze sites while Patty dumps all the boner ads out of our spam folder (are there really that many people obsessed with “hardness issues”? We need to think about something else). And enough is enough. I can’t digest any more nooze today.

Afrikaan Beat came out in 1962. We heard it as theme music on The Sandy Becker Show (appealing both to little kids and young teens like me) and on the jukebox at the YMCA. It is a souvenir from normal times. Back when we didn’t have to worry about Far Left Crazy taking over our country while we slept one night.

This is all I’m going to say about today’s nooze:

If you little tinpot tyrants, wherever you are, intend to withhold from us our God-given rights, enshrined in law, for as long as you can get away with it–well, we’ll just have to take them back. However we do it, it won’t be good for you.

We don’t want your “new normal.” We don’t want anything you’re selling us. Just go away.

 


Sign This Petition–If You Can

See the source image

Your home: you only thought you owned it.

Sharon and Jerry Puckett have lived in their house, in Yorktown, Indiana, for more than 50 years. Now the town wants to kick them out and tear down their home to make way for some B.S. “games” facility (https://www.change.org/p/yorktown-indiana-town-council-don-t-bulldoze-our-home?recruiter=69474550&utm_campaign=signature_receipt&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition&fbclid=IwAR2DAk8y-bB3F0wX1WHv2-_a5jC0tpQhQ1FA3tihNdRHEmkT7Qy-mc0UnqE). If the town can’t force the Pucketts to sell, they’ll invoke “eminent domain” to rob them outright.

Is this the kind of thing that should ever happen in America? Ever?

Like bloody hell it is.

It’s difficult to find words for how low, mean, contemptible, and high-handed it is for the powers that be, in some stupid town, to crush a couple of harmless ordinary people under their hobnailed boots. You’d think they’d be ashamed! But don’t hold your breath waiting for these tinpot tyrants to feel shame.

Anyway, there’s a petition up to save the Pucketts and their home, and supposedly you can find it on the Change.org website (click “Browse,” and then “Don’t Bulldoze My Home,” and good luck to you) and hopefully sign it there. They have almost 60,000 signatures, and are shooting for 75,000.

Maybe one or more of you with more computer savvy than I have–that would be almost every living creature on the planet–can find a sure-fire way to gain access to the petition and sign it. If you can, please let me know and I’ll add it to this post.
