We get one shot at life
With regard to the current protests against police brutality situations, I keep waiting for all of the small business owners in America to rally and march (peacefully, of course) against the onslaught of government attacks that are killing, or have already killed, their small businesses. The government attacks against individuals and small businesses have included fake medical plan-demics, the shut-down of the small business customer base, onerous and destructive rules now imposed on individuals and re-opened small businesses. And now, for the second major attacks, we have violent riots in the big cities. Small businesses in America have been largely destroyed by government. IMO.
As an example of small business problems, my local restaurant now is forced to use throw-away plates and plastic eating utensils, and is forbidden from using re-usable plates and silverware to serve the public. Really? Ever try to cut a piece of meat with a plastic knife? The restaurant is also limited in the number of customers it can have at any one time because of the government’s stupid and insane ‘social distancing’ rules imposed on the business. And what about the dramatic increase in all of that throw-away paper and plastic trash? Does it all now go to landfill? Who pays for that? How big will landfills have to become?
People who used to work in bars and restaurants now take in more money from government unemployment checks on a weekly basis than they earned when working. Why return to working 40 hours a week when government pays you to stay home? What’s THAT all about?
And, remember, the online businesses and big businesses remained opened and prosperous during the lock-down of America. Was this medical plan-demic really just a method of increasing the wealth and prosperity of big businesses like Walmart, Costco, and Amazon? What kind of evil force in life does these kinds of actions? Are the eugenicists like Bill gates really running the countries of the world, or is it just more tribal warfare nonsense from religious wackos like ‘the great destroyers?’ Do some humans really want the extinction of other humans on earth? Why?
And the government spying – what the hell is THAT all about. Now the government is recruiting human societal spies that they want to inform on all of the rebellious humans who reject onerous government rules and regulations. Really? What’s THAT all about? Freedom of speech? Freedom of movement? Not so much.
And now we have cameras everywhere, GPS locators in our cars and smartphones, 5G being propagated everywhere, etc. Police state anyone? Did you ever ask for this criminal behavior from government? No? And you still think you live in a free country? Come on, kid – it’s time to grow up into adulthood. You don’t live in a family picnic – you live in an open air prison plantation. Think about it. This is life in 2020. Prison life.
Do small businesses not protest because they are so vulnerable and have so many government agencies coming after them when they do stand tall? I’m thinking now of the example of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, which had its business license taken away from it when the owner decided that ‘enough was enough,’ and re-opened her own restaurant. Really? How phuqing unconstitutional can government get in its use of force and violence against its own people? Why does government do these actions against people and their livelihood businesses?
And, in the voluntary support of others, where are the good cops, the Oath Keepers, and the local militias who can actually help protect individuals and small businesses when they are attacked by government agencies? Oh, yeah, I forgot, the government sends in the militarily armed and trained SWAT teams when people try to remain open and defend their ability to earn an income. Is ours a disarmed society really a weak and defenseless society when government reigns powerful and armed and says ‘do what we say or we will punish you?’
“What, sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.” — Elbridge Gerry, August 17, 1789
“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.” — Thomas Paine
Is government in America now simply another well organized and well armed communist police state, where everyone must do what it says or see punishment imposed on them? Really? So, we are now a closed society as was the communist society we all remember as the Soviet Union? Are we all Palestinians now? Have we ever read how many Russian Christians died at the hands of the largely Talmudic police during the Soviet years? How about the other genocides that have occurred in years past? Doesn’t that tell us how evil and deadly communism really is? One size never fits all.
What happened to ‘the land of the free and home of the brave’ theme? Are the American people no longer free? What about bravery – are only those with guns in their hands able to be brave and free? Are cops free, or are cops just now the stupid order-following plantation guards? Have we the people been disarmed mentally and physically in order to prevent us from controlling the onerous and vile local, county, state, and federal governments that rule over us? And yes, we have far too many levels of government controlling us.
“The authority of the State can never be an end in itself; for, if that were so, any kind of tyranny would be inviolable and sacred. If a government uses the instruments of power in its hands for the purpose of leading a people to ruin, then rebellion is not only the right but also the duty of every individual citizen.” — Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
Freedom is the absence of legislation, and in a country with an estimated 2 million laws controlling the people, how can we ever think of ourselves as a free people?
So much for the ‘shining city on the hill,’ eh? We are now just another communist oppressed people like all of the others we read about in the history books (the real history books, not the government approved history books).
We have devolved into a bigger slave state than was ever designed and implemented before. The rich and powerful will do alright because they can always afford to defend themselves legally, physically, and financially. The poor can go suck rocks. Is that what equal opportunity is all about? Who, exactly, is driving this insanity and all of this violence? It is not the people, that’s for certain.
I wanted to leave a better country for my children. I spent many years helping raise a family, helping build businesses, and I tried to be open and honest with others – often to my own disadvantage. Sadly, all of that effort now appears to be wasted and maybe even destroyed by ‘the great destroyers’ and their sycophants. Screw all that.
“The trouble [with injustice] is that once you see it, you can’t unsee it. And once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing, becomes as political an act as speaking out. There is no innocence. Either way, you’re accountable.” — Arundhati Roy
My once free country, America, has been destroyed by zio-controlled government and by the rich and powerful who control it and who use its aggressive actions against others. We appear to be a declining empire, and so I’m not very happy about the country I am leaving to my children.
“It is vain to fight totalitarianism by adopting totalitarian methods. Freedom can only be won by men unconditionally committed to the principles of freedom. The first requisite for a better social order is the return to unrestricted freedom of thought and speech.” ― Ludwig Von Mises, Omnipotent Government
Today is Sunday, normally a day of rest and religious reflection, and so I think I’ll try to enjoy what I can for today and worry about the country again tomorrow.
Have a nice day, and try to think about ways you, as an individual, can help us solve these problems created by people who control government. And, no, that’s probably NOT you. It could be, but the first thing you must do is become a mature adult and take charge of your own individual life. There is no room in a free country for a weak, uneducated people to take charge of anything, much less their own lives.
You get one shot at life, and it’s a tough life. But, this is your time in life. Don’t waste it. Become a responsible, self-sufficient, mature adult, by whatever standard that may apply to you as an individual. The rest of us need you to be as strong as possible, both mentally and physically. Do your best, always. Stay away from drugs, alcohol, and other addictive substances, and become healthy, educated, and wise so you can help others.
“Learn what is true in order to do what is right.” — Thomas Huxley
If we don’t help each other, we are doomed as an animal species.
