Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

Wow, hit a nerve! Stats for the blog have been steadily up, people are thinking about issues like transient problems, crime, and Kamala Harris (?), but I haven’t seen a jump in visitors like the one I got for “Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.”

I’m shocked people don’t care more about what’s going on Downtown right now, and I think city management is really happy about it. I just got another agenda for a “special” meeting next Tuesday, and I’ll say – nothing on that agenda is “essential” business. They’re trying to shove ballot measures by under cover of COVID. 

This is the second most important Independence Day in my lifetime. The first was during 9-11, when we saw an unprecedented attack on our civil liberties. Forgot that already? Because a lot of the stuff we were freaked about in the days following September 11, 2001 are still with us, like TSA. The last time I saw TSA in the news was reports they were stealing laptops and other expensive gadgets out of people’s luggage. People who want to travel by air have just accepted this intrusion on our rights, that’s what’s alarming to me. And now, too many people are accepting masking and the cancellation of public events. They not only accept this intrusion in their own lives, like some kind of sci-fi novel, they turn on others around them and demand they also accept it. 

Happy Independence Day, and don’t  forget what it means. It means VIGILANCE. It means being ready to push back against attack on our freedom. 

Practice FREEDOM today, leave your mask at home. Stay out of others’ body space, wash your hands, and repeat after me:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Learn it. Know it. Live it.

    The fact that people will allow their government to sexually molest them and their kids just to get on a plane shows Americans really don’t care about liberty. And the TSA should be named Thieves and Sexual Assailants.

    Besides, the government takes about a third or more of everything the working stiff makes, is always demanding more (you can bet more tax increases are coming) and runs up unbelievable debt their kids will have to deal with, yet few care.

    The rulers are tyrants and the people are little more than sheep being led by the nose.

      I know – whatever happened to the Spirit of ’76?

        As long as the average American has reality TV in high def and can get by with debt that’s all that really counts to keep the masses mollified. They really don’t care about much else.

        This pretty much sums it up https://bit.ly/3f49OnX
