The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
Have we not seen this?
All of it?
The last 18 months?
Do I need to go over it all again? I'd hope not.
Think the cancel game is not going to get you? Of course it is. It is simply a matter of time.
Last month about 1.4% of the people with college degrees said **** you and walked off their jobs, not having new ones. Of those the majority left the workforce entirely and thus are no longer interested in a job. In one month. In addition over the last six months close to three million new people are listed as having a disability that did not exist before.
Covid got a bunch of the disabled in 2020, of course. Disabilities tend to run with both age and morbid conditions. The expected downward move in said people in the labor report occurred, only to be replaced with a rocket ride starting in January.
You're smart enough to figure this one out -- right?
Perhaps people are getting wise to the games and simply pulling back. Fine and well for the one, but what does that do to society as a whole? For our competitiveness? Is the jobs market really "strong" or is the truth a bit more-subtle; you can put up all the "Help Wanted" signs you wish but if you're an illogical jackass that treats people like cattle you can and will be told to go screw a goat.
America was founded on the premise of individual liberty. Your risk, your reward -- for good or bad.
You have no right -- nor did you ever have a "right" -- to force anyone to do anything simply because of how you feel.
Yet somewhere along the line if you happen to feel insecure, you feel that a virus might get you or you feel like you don't like some outcome that is linked to your DNA in a way that there's nothing you can do about suddenly it's everyone else's obligation to assuage your feelings via committing to whatever change you demand.
Uh, no. You can demand all you want but the middle finger can go up in response.
There are those who feel you should take some action after they spent a decade or more stuffing their face and becoming fat. Which, incidentally, happens to grossly raise your risk of bad things happening of all sorts, whether it be joint replacements, heart attacks, strokes.... or viruses.
To top it off the teachers unions have declared that it is your child's responsibility to take care of the teachers health and they have refused to go back to work until and unless you damage or even destroy your child's education -- and perhaps their quality of life -- so they feel "safe." They didn't just do this on a forward basis either -- in many parts of the country they turned around and screwed your kids out of a year and a half of school already! Oh, but of course you must still pay the taxes that fund the provision of what neither you or your children got and their screaming hasn't stopped either.
Never mind that there is now evidence that the last 18 months of bull**** has doubled the incidence of Type II diabetes in children. What sort of monster puts together a set of policy decisions that lead to that outcome? I'll tell you what sort: The sort of monsters infesting our local, state and federal governments.
Would not an intelligent set of parents say screw this, move somewhere that you can manage to make it work financially delivering McDonalds with Door Dash and tell your employer to go hose himself? Homeschool anyone? Oh, now what? Think that's not part of what's reflected in those jobs numbers?
There's much more of course. Conflicts of interest, inflation intentionally unleashed on the people, screwing every small landlord in the nation, the medical mafia screwing anyone that walks in the door to within an inch of their life (if they don't kill them outright), ruining the value of college, telling every white person they're the demonic Spawn of Satan simply on the basis of their skin color, offshoring of jobs to China and India and more.
We've allowed government to lie in myriad ways (Yellowcake, Gain of Function and more anyone?) and lots of people died as a result. This latest fiasco was simply one that got plenty of people right here instead of a few service members and a crap-ton of those "who, in the opinion of said 'betters', don't matter at all." Like the Iraqis, for example.
How much corruption do you think was involved in the Seaside collapse? The outcome went a bit further than it did at The Mid-Bay Bridge where I used to live. There it just roughly quadrupled the cost of going over said bridge, ruining the economics of where they live for anyone who works a $10/hour job. This time people died. The truth is coming out; there were warnings at Seaside but despite them the building was not Red Tagged and everyone involved with the power to raise Hell at the local government level sat on their ass. Why? Was it the property taxes coming in? That's a very nice pile of concrete and rebar you have sitting there as a consequence of said failure to act, isn't it? Never mind the pile of bodies.
Now add to that duh-versity. You get points for everything except competence. Come talk to me about how horrible and racist things like diesel engines (in trucks, ships and trains), electric power, light bulbs, telephones, the IP protocol that makes your suckle media work, flush toilets, air conditioned buildings and dozens of other things we not only enjoy but rely on daily, and flush them all down the toilet because some white dude invented damn near all of it. Everyone who isn't competent wants to use these things and enjoy the fruits of our civilization while at the same time calling everyone involved in creating the comforts and utility that we all enjoy a bunch of racists and worse, teaching everyone's children by force that their value is found only in their skin color and if they're white and especially male they should be ashamed of that, not their ability and character. Every single person pushing that crap should be forced to **** in the street and live without running water, power, air conditioning, motor vehicles and the Internet. Speaking of those teeeaaaaachers, especially in places like ****Cago, how many of them can write a basic business letter and do 4-function arithmetic on paper and pencil? Maybe some of those Devils the duh-versity crowd have trashed in favor of rioting thugs in places like ****Cago, Portland, Detroit and Minneapolis have decided that if merit doesn't matter then you can go right ahead and build the next thing you want -- or maintain what's already there -- without them.
Yeah, Trump was wonderful; he enabled all the lockdowns, the restrictions and people being treated like crap. Biden is no better and in many ways worse and of course the "mavens of media" refused to report on any of his corruption, including what is arguably the direct sell-out of this nation to China through Hunter.
Perhaps -- just perhaps -- the last 18 months have taught the American people with actual brains that they're not considered valued, they are thought as "racist devils" and seeing it come at them from both sides of the aisle while the coercion and "cone of silence" ratchet up ever tighter they've finally woken up and decided to walk off in response and let everyone twist in the wind without their effort, intelligence and experience.
Got pen and paper?
It is July 4th, you know.
What do you put on said paper after When in the course of human events......?
Are you ready to begin such a document? Is it time for the American people to have debate in the open, and enforce the right to have that debate whether the duh-versity screamers like it or not as guaranteed under our Constitution without interference by government or private actors? And are you willing to back up whatever words you come together with others and collectively write down or will it just be "oooohs" and "aaaaaahs" as you light fireworks this evening and swill beer?
How long will there be groceries in the stores if the trucks stop coming because the drivers say "screw you"?
How long will there be gasoline?
For how long will the light switch work?
How about your faucet from which comes clean water and the sewer plant that treats your ****?
How about the medicine you need because you ate yourself into a blob when the Whaaambulance dude in the back doesn't show up for work with his defib kit when you have a heart attack because you called him a Satanic Racist -- for being white?
How about the Internet over which you can playing Reeeeeeeeing Karen?
What percentage of the people in any critical component of delivery of goods and services have to stick up the middle finger before the insanity that local, state and federal governments along with the big corporate folks wish to impose is forced to stop?
What if our "corporate overlords" put up those Help Wanted signs and nobody applies for the jobs as they're sick of the bull**** from top to bottom, tired of being treated like cattle, and tell them all to go to Hell?
Something to think about while you're grilling the hot dogs that were 16 cents cheaper this year but the gas to get the store that you must expend to get there and buy them doubled in price.
