Robert F. Kennedy on the COVID mandates: “Nobody has ever complied their way out of totalitarianism. Every time you comply the demands will get greater and greater.”

3 Jan

I hate to discuss COVID or the mandates because it attracts the biggest creeps to my website, and it’s cost me at least a few regular readers. But I had to post this article by Robert F. Kennedy, son and nephew of two of the biggest Democrats of all time, criticizing the mandates.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: I’m going to tell you these three things that you need to remember in this critical day and age.
1.) Once government acquires a power, it never lets it go voluntarily.
2.) Every power that government acquires, using this pandemic as a pretense, it will ultimately abuse to the maximum effect possible. This is a rule that is as certain as gravity.
3.) Nobody has ever complied their way out of totalitarianism. Every time you comply the demands will get greater and greater.

Let me repeat, a Democrat said this. That surprises me, and gives me some hope of a sane resolution to all of this, because throughout the COVID scam, this country has gone completely partisan. Democrats have been expected to follow the party line, and they’ve been absolutely fascist about it. And if they haven’t stepped up, their creepy fascist friends have subjected them to public humiliation. Suddenly, here’s a Democrat whose family has been held up as liberal icons for my entire life, telling us the Democrats are WRONG.

First of all, what he says is historically true. Look at what 911 did to our rights – you can’t fly on an airplane, or even go into an airport without a special ID. AKA “papers”. Now you have to show papers to go to a restaurant or a movie theater.

Kennedy is right, “We need to resolve here and now that this is the hill we need to die on. ” And the Democrats know he’s right too, because they’ve launched a full-on attack on the long-time entrenched Democrat.

Attacks on Kennedy because he and his wife don’t see eye-to-eye on the issue, articles accusing Kennedy of “propagandism”, etc. What surprised me, were the tabloid style articles coming from longtime media standards like US News, AP, and the LA Times. This is just a hysterical tar-and-feathers party.

I don’t take partisan stands. If the government is wrong, Republican or Democrat, it’s wrong.

To vax or not to vax: at least read up on it before you decide

When will the madness end? According to the LA Times, “The CDC on Tuesday issued new guidance that vaccinated people should return to wearing masks indoors in public settings in parts of the country where the coronavirus is widely spreading.” As of yesterday Yolo County brought back their mask mandate.

Here in Butte County the mask mandate is being handled differently by different agencies. City of Chico meeting agendas no longer have any notice whatsoever about COVID, and meetings are open to the public again.

“The public is encouraged to participate in the City’s decision-making process and is invited to attend City Council meetings or view them live on Channel 11 or via streaming video here.  If you can’t attend a meeting, you can always submit your comments at Civic Engaged.j

Butte County Board of Supervisors still has a notice, but apparently, they will be operating on the Honor System.

Board of Supervisors meetings are open to the public. Pursuant to CDPH guidelines, face masks are not required for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Entering the meeting without a mask will be considered a self-attestation that an individual is fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

Chico Unified School District is still pondering the mask mandate. Recall supporters are asking that it be dropped. We’ll see where that goes as Parents for In-Person Learning continue to gather signatures on their petitions. Frankly, I’ve had kids, and I’ve known a lot of kids, and kids can’t even take care of their jacket or shoes half the time. I hate to think how dirty and disgusting a kid’s mask gets. Is the teacher going to be responsible for that? I’m just glad, so very grateful, that I don’t have kids in CUSD.

Last I heard, Chico State will require vaccination if you want to get a degree. If it were me, I’d definitely go to a better school.

My kids got the shot for their jobs, and they got very sick afterwards. Who calls these reactions “mild side effects”:

  • Pain, redness or swelling where the shot was given
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Swollen lymph nodes

Well, the Mayo Clinic, for one. These are symptoms that can keep a person in bed, unable to care for themselves, and out of work, as Mayo also states, for one to three days. That’s hardly “mild”. My kids were totally KO-d for two days.

The information just gets worse as you read along. Blood clots. Heart problems, especially in young people? If you are considering this vaccination, you better read up on it:

And before you go, remember to stock up on simple foods like instant soup, easy to eat stuff like crackers, apples, bananas. You might want to get some bottled water to have next to your bed. Get some cold packs, or just frozen vegies – they make a nice cold pack, and they’re nice to eat when you have a fever. Make sure your bed is clean and comfortable and your laundry is caught up. If you have children, arrange for somebody else to take care of them for maybe three days.

Good luck!
