Government Goes Too Far

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 4/23/2020 3:18:54 AM

I'm "social distancing." I stay away from people. I do it voluntarily. There's a big difference between voluntary -- and force. Government is force. The media want more of that. "Ten states have no stay-at-home orders!" complains Don Lemon On CNN. "Some governors are still refusing to take action!" Fox News' host Steve Hilton agreed. "Shut things down! Everywhere. That includes Utah, Wyoming..." But wait a second. People in Utah and Wyoming already socially distanced just by living there. Why must Utah and Wyoming have the same stay-at-home rules as New York? I find it creepy how eager some people are for authorities to boss us around.

The lawsuits. The lawsuits will be coming fast and frequent until the courts are choked. It will be interesting to find out who has "standing" and who doesn't. Equally interesting will be how the Obama/Clinton appointees rule as opposed to the Trump appointed (does Bush count after Roberts?). The judgements and appeals will take years to work out with a few landing in the Supreme Court. Hardly justice for ALL of US having our liberties trampled and whittled away. A few states may even come up with new laws (more laws...). This virus has certainly pulled back the curtains on the petty tyrants: governors, mayors and more than a few law officers, to notables in Congress, all angling for political posture. None of this is going unnoticed. The question is this: Are we a country of free people or not? And what are we going to do about it?

I strongly support law enforcement but watching videos of policemen arresting a kid on a paddle board, a mom at a park, and a pastor in his church parking lot is very disturbing to me. It makes me wonder how prudent it was to give these governors and mayors power to implement draconian rules which strangles our freedom. Being at risk, I rarely go out but when I do, it is frightening to see the fear and uncertainty on the faces of my fellow Americans. When people dare to speak a word to you they indicate that they are fed up with the rules and want this to end. Now I understand the plea give me liberty or give me death. Government oppression is not something we have ever really experienced in this country and let me tell you, Americans do not like it and will not tolerate it much longer.

Proverbs 6:6-11 Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest, How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep-- So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler, And your need like an armed man. It is time that we Americans start taking a serious look at what we do. Let's get busy taking care of ourselves by exercising and eating right, put cleaning and sanitation back into our schedules, and look to energetic ways rather than sluggish ways. Ecclesiastes states that wisdom comes from God only. Open your Bible and start reading. The Old Testament and New Testament - both of them to get the broader picture. Clearly, there is one question here for you after reading the Bible verse from above. Would you rather be an ant or a sluggard. Your choice. Your life. I know it is a free country but with it comes responsibility from us as individuals not laziness. I know what AOC or these authoritarian state governors prefer. . .

Since it came from red China, we should call it the 'Red Plague'. And those eager SA types posing as LEOs---arresting innocent people trying to live their lives--- can be the 'Red Guard'.

Enough is enough! So now Dr. Fauci is whining about Georgia starting to re-open as this virus will be with us for sometime. So shut the entire country down while you go about your daily routine (visits to the White House, etc), collect your almost $400,000 a year government salary. Trump needs to start telling his federal agencies to start allowing workers back into their spaces, especially those work spaces still allow for "social distance" if only to please the mad hatters Drs. Fauci and Birx. And I want to know if all the intel agencies' employees are working on home. Hmm. Do they all have Top Secret and above secured VPNs to connect to to their agency's servers? I doubt it. Trump needs to get out ahead on this and STOP with all these stimulus packages. It's welfare for people and companies that didn't need it six weeks ago.

This will solve itself...as FREE states with Republican leadership show how to do this right, the citizens of the BLUE States will quickly recognize how the Communists that rule them are WRONG ... and Dictators. It won't be pretty when those citizens DEMAND freedom. At that point Pres. Trump can chime in and start, in his 'polite' way, Citizens, if you want to be FREE, you need to tell your 'leaders' in a massive way to get OUT of your way and shut up!

Marxist Communist democrats trying to rule like dictators is because they need this practice exercise to find out which of their leadership actual have the ability to be a dictator. Those who don't come up to the elite leadership of deep state One World Government desired standards will be replaced before they take total control of America's government.

The main point for these Hitler wannabes to remember is that America was founded on the heels of a battle for freedom. We are more than capable of fighting and winning another one and making every state free. Is that what the dim dictators want?

"I find it creepy how eager some people are for authorities to boss us around" Why are you surprised John? The majority of people are uncertain and timid. They want someone to tell them what to do. They are troubled when they have to deal with responsibility. They want to play it safe. A pioneering, entrepreneurial, independent spirit is unusual. Do you think that America was birthed by a overwhelming majority of freedom demanding people? Nope, it was engineered by a small group of smart and determined people who pushed it out and sold it across the land, convincing people through letters and conversations. The people were more independent then so the the ideas they espoused were well received but most people were far removed from the national concerns. "lockdowns are not sustainable" This has been the underlying truth of our shutdown. We were trying to survive a "peak" that would overwhelm our medical system. Beyond that, a shutdown does more damage than good. Dem socialists, always seeking power and control, are trying to take advantage as usual. They win short term because they control the enforcement power of the state but eventually the courts will overrule them. In the meantime, people will defy them and we will remember what they did. We don't need the court's approval or careful interpretation of law to vote them out of office. We can be tyrants too and just expel them.

This is a vivid example of how detached mainstream media is from reporting and truth. I live in Utah. Public and private schools closed a month ago and will not open again until the fall. Same for colleges, including the University of Utah and it's dental and medical schools. Can't get food other than grocery and drivethrough. Can't get a haircut. Can't go to the a lake 2 miles from my house. All non-essential business have been shut down since mid-March. My neighbors wander the streets with their dogs like zombies. My boy got chased from an outdoor, gravel pit shooting range last week by the Sheriff. But both a CNN reporter and Fox reporter think Utah is the new Vegas, because they saw it in a DNC Facebook meme. God help us that so many people are this stupid.

Throughout this coronavirus outbreak, we have witnessed leftist leadership in action and the totalitarian tactics applied by the left with one objective. Political control. The societal effects of the outbreak on a civil society such as ours, is undeniable. The outbreak is a dream come true for the dims, the msm, the deep state, and the globalists as it affords them short-term opportunity to apply yet more societal controls for the benefit of achieving more power over us while using the outbreak as cover. But, look at it this way. Everyone can see for themselves the leftist dogma at work and the assault of this evil on our values. However, the dims have once again shot themselves in the foot. This time, by treating the very people who put them into power like laboratory animals. Anger toward unnecessary oppression is boiling over now. People in the blue states will have very long memories this time and will remember their leadership comes retribution time.

It is an observable fact that The Democrats do what they accuse the Republicans of doing. They have accused President of being a Fascist, a dictator, acting like a king, and being power hungry. That describes the actions in most states where the Democrats are in control. They range from the petty to the draconian. But, they are all excessive and destructive to some degree. The Democrats have become the party of totalitarianism.

One benefit of this Coronavirus mess is the glimpse it has given us into how totalitarianism rises. From Stalin to Hitler to Mao, the model has been to seize upon a crisis and then offer to “save” the people from it if they will only give up a little of their freedoms. Once started down this path, the road to total population control is inevitable. Don’t think for a minute that these power-hungry pols who have relished the position of being able to tell their citizens what they can and cannot do won’t try and continue their controls as this thing winds down. The sad thing is we Americans have allowed

I live in the bluest of blue states which will probably cast electoral votes for Joe Biden and his VP pick. Our governess will follow Pelosi's instruction and open our state when Cuomo decides on New York. State Police shut down a car wash that was operating in another county than ours. We are seeing the full monte with socialism the only thing that stops full grown riots in the street are no food shortage, yet. Saving every person from the virus with no more outbreaks but ruin a country that we can't return to is suicide and just plain wrong. Americans were not made to live under the thumb of tiny dictators and the left who enjoy this just to destroy our President who is doing a great job.

Not long ago many here were advocating the appropriation of private property by the President, using force as necessary, through the Defense Production Act for the purpose of manufacturing respirators. Not long ago many here were squawking about usurpation of "states rights", where locals made decisions, not the Federal government. Like it or not, that's what these governors are doing. But now the President should be. Today, there is squawking about the Dem/Lib governors and their deciding to keep their economies crippled and people at home. No mention of such craziness as Texas quarantining travelers arriving from Louisiana, or Florida having border checks. Texas' governor has gone so far as to begin forming a committee to plan the state's return to normalcy. Wooo! And to squawk about the Dems squeezing trillions out of an empty Treasury...seems the Republicans passed these same "welfare" bills and a Republican President signed the Government Cheese Acts of 2020 into law. The American people have failed this test from the beginning. They have shown that hysteria is easy to induce; obedience is not an issue. No need to stop now. Hey, the experts say we'll be doing this for at least another two years!

The rationale for doing most of these things has turned out to be wrong. The stay at home orders were to keep the hospitals from being overrun. The opposite happened. No one got sick, and the hospitals closed, and furloughed their employees. The rationale have proven to be wrong, why wasn't the stay at home orders lifted? We do need more cleanliness like wiping down commonly used door knobs and shopping cart handles, which is where most virus transmissions occur. These common sense things are rarely mentioned, and most businesses and stores are not doing it. We have public officials ruling like dictators, none of whom have any common sense, a fact everyone knows. The doctors that stand beside them don't have any either. These are the same type doctors that have advised for centuries leaving home to go somewhere else to cure illnesses. Sure sick, so travel to Arizona, or if in Britain, go to Italy. Doctors can help some, but you really must decide and control what you allow them to do to you, or you will be sicker, and poorer. Every Nazi leader had a doctor, and all of them became drug addicts. You know how to take care of yourself, and do not need a bureaucrat or a doctor to do that.

Let us hope that the voters will remember this moment. Often when people are under duress they reveal their true selves. The democrats in power want to rule; they want to control; they want to force you and bend you to their will. Why? Because they are little people who could never attain prominence in the world beyond politics. This is the way that they make themselves look like big people. Ultimately, they are jailers and they want to imprison you and make you pawns within their dream games. Let us hope that the voters choose the party of liberty, not the party of constraint and tyranny.

Unfortunately - - the impulse toward authoritarianism infects this very forum of supposedly freedom-loving individuals. Just consider how strong the support here is for the utterly authoritarian, anti-freedom "War On Drugs" - - now in its 50th year of colossal failure and trampling on the Constitution. How can anyone who supports the "War On Drugs" - - be critical of an authoritarian streak in anyone else?

Everybody here, take note of what got vomited from Cuomo's big mouth. He has said those who are out of work should go work for "essential" business. My, my!! How it takes a crisis for someone's true colors to show!! Indeed, he thinks like a socialist/communist dictator. Forget what you love to do. Forget where your heart is. Do what the state wants and needs you to do. Become a cog in the wheel of a production machine. If God called you to be an artist, forget about it. Instead, be a maker of masks. Cuomo is a stark utilitarian who is all about pragmatism, what works. Stay in New York, Cuomo, you jerk!!!

Nearly 7500 people die daily in this country (the number I saw is actually 7452). That is over 50000 a week. That is over 200000 in a month. Over 2.5 million in a year. Now all of a sudden our government and media are concerned about our mortality? Got bad news, and good news for you. The bad news? You are going to die. The good news? Probably not today. Our government cannot stop it, and needs to get over it. We need to get over the deaths. People die. Btw, its not just Democrats. Here in Republican run Florida we have a lockdown and social distancing is being enforced. The President is on board with this. Democrats are worse, but Republicans aren't much better. At least some Republicans are grounded in reality, and are trying to reopen things. Trump is lucky that the democrats do not present any viable options. Said it before. Neither the lockdown or social distancing are sustainable. More than 4 million people filed for unemployment last week on top of all the others that are already unemployed. Both the federal government and all the state governments have taken huge hits economically over this. How much revenue have the governments lost? They are already in debt, and are making things much worse. There is only one solution: REOPEN THE COUNTRY.

You are either part of the problem, or part of the solution. Police swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. They better consider whether their superiors are giving them legal orders. If not, then resign, or rebel. Think very carefully, whether you are an officer of justice and law under the Constitution, or a thug working for a tyrant.

Who here doubts that the Democrats are openly at war with us and our government? That their comical #resistance has turned into real sabotage? Anybody? At first this was about "flattening the curve". Well the curve is now so flat that the hospitals are all laying off staff and going bankrupt. And the lockdowns went from "social distancing" to stay out of the entire Pacific Ocean or else! And if we reopen too soon, it will be "murder." In that regard, has anybody been to Costco or Walmart lately? See any murders there...I mean other than for getting that last roll of toilet paper or the last rotisserie chicken? How come Costco can operate daily (ditto, Safeway, Albertson's, UPS, Fedex, etc.) just fine, but some Mom & Pop that sees two customers a day must stay shut down? Open it all up and let the public figure out how best to stay safe. And let the blue states and cities hibernate as long as they want to. One thing about epidemics that centuries have shown to be true. They ALL have pretty much the same life cycle. They only die out after you reach "herd immunity". Get it now, or get it later. Take your pick.

Sorry, but the state and local governments have broad authority to act in the interest of public safety. Yes, it's in the Constitution. See Article 10. They can prohibit almost anything and lock people up in isolation if those people are a danger to others. The only way a regulation would be unconstitutional is if it restricts rights unreasonably and without good cause. Granted that some of these edicts are not reasonable, but most of them are in line with the public interest. Most of the time they are doing what the experts are telling them to do, and that's good cover for them. Nobody ever had the right to do stupid things that put other people in danger of disease and death. That's just not a right people are losing here.

Even as his subjects were protesting, the Illinois governor just added another month until the end of May to his lock down. I live under the NY Governor's tyranny, and I am sick to death of hearing these officials who are getting their paychecks and benefits, pontificating about how their states must continue to remain in lock down. Here and now I say that ANY OFFICIAL who has locked down their state MUST forego their salaries and benefits. And that goes for ALL non-essential public employees. I say this as Benito Cuomo snarked that protesters in NY who want the state open because they are out of jobs should go an get an "essential job." What a POS he is. If all non-essential public employees and ALL public officials in these states had their paychecks and benefits stopped, we would see these states opened in a NY minute and Whuhan flu victims, be dammed.

New Jersey driver crashes car after passing

A New Jersey driver crashed head-on into a pole — after passing out from wearing an N95 mask for hours, police said Friday. Lincoln Park police believe that the driver, who was not named, lost consciousness while behind the wheel Thursday from lack of oxygen and breathing in excessive carbon dioxide thanks to the mask, the department wrote on Facebook. “The LPPD responded to a lone occupant single car motor vehicle crash yesterday. The crash is believed to have resulted from the driver wearing an N95 mask for several hours and subsequently passing out behind the wheel due to insufficient oxygen intake/excessive carbon dioxide intake,” the cops wrote.

You’d think the left would have learned from its boneheaded mistakes after the astounding presidential victory of Donald Trump in 2016. And boy, would you be wrong. From Kentucky to Oregon, protests have been staged in recent days by angry Americans sick to distraction of corona lockdown. Wielding placards and scowls, some of them riding safely in cars — and a tiny few brandishing firearms — they’ve converged on state capitals and public spaces from Michigan to Montana and New Hampshire to Pennsylvania, anxious to achieve one common goal: getting back to work. The reaction from the elite, mainly white, leftist media has been stunning, depressing. And familiar.
Sorry, Facebook: Announcing a protest isn’t

A scattering of protests aimed at coronavirus lockdowns erupted across the country, sparked not by social-distancing guidelines but by politicians’ unilaterally dictating what products citizens are permitted to purchase in box stores, attempting to shut down drive-in Masses at churches and closing parks and beaches, among other ill-conceived and gratuitous intrusions. So naturally, Facebook decided to censor organizers’ posts. Like any protest movement, this one is a mixed bag: Some of the protesters are acting in bad faith, some are idealists and some are merely terrified of losing their livelihoods, their homes and their careers while waiting around for a government check that might never come.

ExxonMobile has devised a single solution for the double whammy of historic low oil prices and a coronavirus pandemic: converting one of its plants to make medical-grade hand sanitizer for health care providers and first responders. The oil and gas giant has reconfigured a facility in Louisianna to produce the product, which it plans to donate for free to medical workers within the state and in New York, Texas, New Jersey, New Mexico and Pennsylvania, ExxonMobil announced Friday. “We’re focused on keeping our people and communities safe while supporting frontline responders and meeting customer needs,” said Darren Woods, chairman and chief executive officer of Exxon Mobil Corporation, in a statement.

On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery. Tucker Carlson asked Whitsett if the governor ever called the representative to simply say, "I'm so glad you didn't die?" "Actually, it was not as pleasant as that," Rep. Whitsett began, "and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well."

Either that or the 80-year-old Democrat is suffering from brain freeze from too much expensive ice cream.

A federal judge in San Diego has mooted a California law requiring people to undergo background checks before being able to purchase ammunition, the latest legal pushback against authoritarian Democrats and their never-ending quest to dismantle the Second Amendment. U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, sided with the California Rifle & Pistol Association, which sued to block the law. “The experiment has been tried. The casualties have been counted. California’s new ammunition background check law misfires and the Second Amendment rights of California citizens have been gravely injured,” Benitez wrote in a 120-page opinion, The Associated Press reported.

CNN political commentator Chris Cuomo’s wife, Cristina, is facing criticism from practically everybody — except anybody at CNN, of course — for promoting a “crackpot coronavirus treatment” that’s been dubbed “dangerous.” In a post to her blog reportedly published this week, the left-wing host’s wife listed the pseudoscientific holistic methods she’s been employing to treat her coronavirus infection. One of those methods involves bathing in Clorox bleach. “At the direction of my doctor, Dr. Linda Lancaster, who reminded me that this is an oxygen-depleting virus, she suggested I take a bath and add a nominal amount of bleach. Yes, bleach,” the post reads. Lancaster is not a doctor.

Whitsett is guilty of crediting Trump with saving her life after taking hydroxychloroquine to treat her severe coronavirus symptoms. Democrats apparently couldn’t handle the fact that the first-term lawmaker spoke well of the president and then actually met with him and Vice President Mike Pence last week at the White House

Governor Ron DeSantis believes flattening the curve of coronavirus cases is possible without resorting to “draconian” measures and his state of Florida is proof it can be done. The Republican governor spoke on “Hannity” about the efforts and results of combating the COVID-19 pandemic in Florida where, despite being hit hard with the virus outbreak, the state has seen fewer hospitalizations than predicted with just over 900 deaths. [Video] I’m going to honest, Governor. I was particularly worried about the state of Florida,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said Wednesday, noting the vacation destination has a high elderly population.

Responding to the growing Orwellian trend of the authorities using surveillance technology to enforce social distancing protocols, Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said bluntly Thursday that such enforcement methods are illegal. “We’re not talking about a bank robber running out of a bank because there is probable cause to believe that he has committed a crime, and you don’t need a search warrant to watch him,” he said during an appearance on FNC’s “Fox & Friends.” What “we are talking about,” he continued, is using drone technology, as an example, to watch “people peaceably walking down the street or assembling in a public space.”

Trump derangement syndrome (TDS), according to Urban Dictionary, is a “Contagious, debilitating psychiatric disorder manifesting in a precipitous decline in intellectual and emotional stability and resilience.” The contagious and debilitating bits sound much like the Wuhan flu. TDS, also known in infectious disease circles as Covfefe-45, not to be confused with Covid-19, has mutated into another form, namely hydroxychloroquine derangement syndrome, referring to the abject media hysteria over the innocuous prescription medication. Attorney General William Barr even noticed and, “Claimed that the Washington press corps is on a ‘jihad’ against President Trump over his promotion of an anti-malaria drug to treat the novel coronavirus.”

Earlier this week, Fox News’ Brit Hume suggested it’s time we consider lockdown policy as possibly being “a colossal public policy calamity.” Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox airwaves Tuesday night, Hume discussed the disastrous side effects of stay-at-home orders adopted by nearly every state in the union, highlighting the irreparable harm done to the folks’ livelihood and savings, and the social toll the isolation has caused, particularly for children, who are at extremely low risk for novel coronavirus. To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.

We all know the old saying that tough times bring out both the best in people and the worst in people. And right now, the coronavirus pandemic has brought tough times to literally billions of us all around the world. For a vivid illustration of both the best and worst response to the pandemic, you have to look no further than the rash of small but disturbing protests taking place intermittently around the U.S. against shelter-in-place orders that are saving lives. We’ve witnessed the sad spectacle of irate protesters equating “liberty” with shortsighted and selfish urges to deny the harsh reality that the vast majority of Americans are doing their

Most politicians in the running to join a presidential ticket as the VP candidate are inclined to stay silent, change the subject, or simply express their humility at the thought of being considered. Stacey Abrams isn't most politicians. "I would be an excellent running mate," Abrams said in a recent interview with Elle magazine, citing her "strong history of executive and management experience," as well as her "25 years in independent study of foreign policy." As soon as it became clear that former vice president Joe Biden would be the Democratic Party's nominee for president, Abrams embarked on a media tour to make the case for why Stacey Abrams,

On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery. Tucker Carlson asked Whitsett if the governor ever called the representative to simply say, "I'm so glad you didn't die?" "Actually, it was not as pleasant as that," Rep. Whitsett began, "and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well."

We’re all homeschoolers now. Schools have closed for more than 55 million students nationwide, and at least 34 states have shuttered schools for the rest of the academic year. Just in time, our media and academic elites are coming out swinging against homeschooling. The Washington Post and ­Salon have raised questions about the practice lately. More alarming, Harvard Magazine this week unleashed a thoroughly unfounded attack on homeschooling, drawing on the work of Harvard University law professor Elizabeth Bartholet.

The novel coronavirus pandemic will define the modern era in the same way World War II shaped an earlier generation, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says in a 11-page memo outlining his ideas on how best to tackle the disease. “This is like a world war, except in this case, we’re all on the same side,” he writes. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $250 million to the battle and Gates has been speaking up regularly to influence its direction — something that has sometimes placed him at odds with President Donald Trump and made him a target of right-wing pundits and conspiracy theorists. Gates’ memo barely mentions politics,
