Ceded Authority

Now That You’ve Ceded Authority Once…

Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?

You’ve Set A Precedent

You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.

And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.

Be Safely Anti-Sinophobic

In the wake of the Wuhan Virus aka the CCP Virus aka COVID-19, it’s really important to fight against Sinophobia. It is, however, also important to stay as safe as possible. 😉

Pandemic!

That's Why We Call It A "Pandemic!"
That’s Why We Call It A “Pandemic!”

Oh yeah! I’m sure that there’s going to be all sorts of follow-on lamentations about how the lock-downs and various “Shelter in Place” laws will have resulted in an expansion of people’s waistlines only equaled by the contraction of our nation’s economy.

Trump Isn’t Wrong

Trump Isn't Wrong! Mass Absentee Voting Is
Trump Isn’t Wrong! Mass Absentee Voting Is

Ignoring the usual Leftist screeds, President Trump isn’t wrong about the risks to our nation posed by the Democrats’ desperate bid to have mass absentee voting for the 2020 elections. It’s an idea tailor made for rampant voter fraud and other “shenanigans,” such as “losing” boxes of ballots.

Here’s the thing, the Left is correct in saying that actual voter fraud is extremely rare but … most of it is involved with absentee voting, something that is, itself normally extremely rare in the context of national elections.

And then, there’s the US Postal Service (USPS), which probably couldn’t properly handle delivering and picking up all those 10’s of millions of ballots, and who couldn’t truly be trusted to do so properly due to their current political views. After all, in a crisis of resources, one tends to favor those whom one feels are of value over others.

Essentially, the Dems are pushing for this because they know that having a national vote-by-mail/absentee voting election they can break the system and send us down a similar path to the 2000 Hanging Chad debacle but on a national scale. It’s their attempt to either change to outcome of the election or, failing that, make its results as “illegitimate” as possible in the minds of the populace. The latter, honestly, being what I find to be a more likely motive.

Scale Of The Closures

Scale Of The Closures
The Scale Of The Closures Says A Lot, None Of It Good

Just something to think about. Since the first of the shutdowns / closures enacted by various politicians, the big box stores have been allowed to stay open while almost every small business has been forced to shutdown, often by threat of draconian reprisals.
