We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The Vaccination Plan Isn't Working IN THE BLUE STATES. There, fixed it for you. The whine about only 14 million doses being available by the end of the year when all of the experts laughed at the notion of any being available was especially precious.
Now the blame game. The talking heads are blaming Trump for the violence in DC. Strangely the talking heads resisted putting the blame on Pelosi or other dems when it was Antifa burning down cities. But what really happened? The Feral Irishman has connected a few dots to show that Antifa infiltrated this demonstration and that Antifa incited the violence.
Conveniently there were a few pipe bombs placed around the city to make this appear far worse than it was. So who put the pipe bombs there? Was it grandpa and grandma from the MAGA rally or was it planted by the left?
Then there is the FBI fully deployed and scanning social media for anyone who was there to put them in jail for ten years for the crime of being in the capitol. Where were they when Antifa was burning down the cities? Antifa who were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon released the next day with no charges but now we are going to put grandma and grandpa in jail for 10 years.
So it's Bastille Day. From now on Jan 6th is the American Bastille day. But don't say that, sit down, shut up and put on your mask.
Expert Andy Ngo: It wasn’t antifa at the Capitol riots
“The people occupying the Capitol building do not look like antifa people dressed in Trump gear or Trump costumes,” he said in an interview from England.
“I have seen no evidence that they are able to coordinate a mass infiltration on this scale before, so I’m really skeptical that they would have been able to do it here without any of that information leaking out,” he said.
I don't know who they were, but I don't think subterfuge and deception is Antifa's strong suit. Given Antifa's knee-jerk rage towards anything conservative, it is difficult for me to believe they could associate with conservatives without tipping their hand.
This whole saga is about what democracy is and what it isn’t. Democracy may not bring the results you wish, but it must be respected.
"Democracy" if you mean voting on issues by the people, has not existed for a very long time, and it will probably never exist again. Nobody in America or Europe is allowed to vote on anything which matters. The tax rate, pensions, the money supply, military equipment, health care pricing; there are hundreds of issues to be decided upon, but people living in a "Democracy" are banned from participation. So let's give-up that dishonest term. We can call our new system a "Lock Down Government". I like that name because it's straightforward.
A Lock-Down Government can be a big advantage in certain ways. First of all, America and Europe are full of old people who need to be euthanized. No more of that "Pensioner" nonsense. And millions of foreigners are destroying quality of life for people of European ancestry. Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, Hindus. These people need to be collected, and sent home. And every country needs strong and enforceable borders to stop the inflow of millions of African and Muslim invaders. So let's welcome our new overlords. Maybe they can clean-up Europe and America before it's too late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACXOhRIe-s4
