The decrees are flying off of governors’ desks to shut down normal activities, cause more damage to the economy, isolate families, and generate fear, panic, and doubt...amongst the media, and disdain and mistrust for government by in increasing amount of the American people.
We’ve seen study after study showing that lockdowns don’t work, yet our state and local government figures insist on decreeing lockdowns again. It is literally insane as defined by Einstein: Doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results this time. Lockdowns didn’t work the previous “x” times, so why would they work this time? If the answer is “Because”, then we can safely ignore those decrees.
Something has been bothering me about some of the legal actions being taken by states, particularly my home state, regarding violations of state Covid-19 guidelines by businesses and individuals.
As such, I have to ask this question: How is it that guidelines can possibly be defined as having the power of laws or regulations? In every place I have looked, both online and offline, guidelines in law are defined as:
A guideline is a statement or plan by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory.Guidelines are neither laws or regulations. As such, how can anyone be fined or otherwise penalized for violating a state Covid-19 guideline? So far I haven’t been able to find out what enables our state to do that.
I think someone in our state capitol needs to dig out a legal dictionary and look up the meaning of “guideline”.
Now that YouTube has been deleting videos that do not meet their increasingly Progressive restrictions, or demonetizing or suspending accounts of content providers with whom their censors disagree, more people are abandoning it for Bit Chute.
Will it replace YouTube? For some folks it is the only place they can post video content that doesn’t meet YouTube’s ever changing and broadening content restrictions. I figure it’s only a matter of time before YouTube will only allow Progressive socialist and communist content which means the amount of ‘acceptable’ videos will dwindle.
Could it be YouTube will censor itself right out of existence? It wouldn’t surprise me if that happened. They would only have themselves to blame.
Now that the DNC-MSM doesn’t have to cover for the Bidens, stories about Hunter Biden’s shady business deals and corrupt business practices, unreported income, unpaid income taxes, ties to Chinese Communist Party members and agents, and an ever growing list of unethical, immoral, and illegal actions involving him, his dad Joe, and even Kamala Harris have been coming to light. When even nominally Democrat Party organs like the New York Times and the Washington Post are pretending to be just now noticing these indiscretions, you know it’s bad.
Is it possible these ‘indiscretions’ will be used as leverage to remove Joe Biden from office and make Kamala Harris the first Communist President of the United States? Or if she is also tied into these ‘indiscretions’ so she too will be booted from office, is this a setup by Nancy Pelosi to move from Speaker of the House to the White House?
If nothing else, the next year is going to be ‘interesting’ in the old Chinese Curse definition of ‘interesting’.
I am dismayed that Joe Biden will be tying America’s economic hands by bringing is back into the Paris Accords fold. I am not sure he can force us to do so considering President Obama’s signing the accords was never ratified by the US Senate, something that is required for any treaty or international agreement of such scope. Then again, Obama really didn’t care because of his “I won” attitude that led him to believe he could ignore the Constitutional constraints upon his office with impunity.
It seems Joe Biden believes he too can ignore the lack of Senate ratification and use the unfair and biased Paris Accords to destroy the American economy while giving China and India a pass. This despite the US having done more than any other nation in the world in reducing CO2 emissions, and air pollution in general.
Why would we agree to institute draconian environmental regulations and measures that will do little to “save the Earth” but will profoundly and negatively affect the US economy when our foreign competitors can continue to pour gigatons of CO2 and not be required to clean up their emissions? Oh, and then there’s the trillions of dollars in climate ‘reparations’ we’ll be obligated to pay to any nation that thinks that they need bribes...er...financial incentives to think about reducing their CO2 emissions.
The Paris Accords are a con game, a so-called long con to make the US pay for our economic competitors sins while making it impossible for our economy to survive.
This could be the literal “End Of The World As We Know It”!
What is ‘this’?
Pepperidge Farm has announced that there is a strong possibility “that a cookie shortage could arrive this holiday season.”
This could be the end of everything…RUN AWAY!
And that’s the slightly abbreviated news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where thoughts are increasingly turning to Christmas, holiday shopping is nowhere near peak, and where we might have some plowable amounts of snow later this week.
