We gave them Easter, we’re not giving them Christmas too!

“Two weeks to flatten the curve.” That’s what we were told by the ‘experts’ like Dr. Anthony Fauci and others with the Center for Disease Control⏤the medical and research professionals who we place our trust in to take care of us and provide us with guidance that we can rely on.
So Americans buckled down and accepted that we would have to all pitch in to fight this plague, but after two weeks, we would get our lives back to normal. And hopefully, after time, we would be able to recover from the financial losses, the closure of our businesses for two weeks, and the shutting down of our jobs would cause.
After the two weeks of the shutdown to “flatten the curve,” Americans were then told by Dr. Fauci and the ‘experts’ that with Easter approaching in the spring, we couldn’t risk family gatherings together on Easter Sunday. Religious observances were also not allowed; a congregation gathering together to celebrate our risen Lord was just too chancy. We were warned that the risk of spreading the disease was far too great in confined spaces like a church.
So, many Americans gave up our family Easter celebrations as well. No Easter Bunny, no children together hunting for colored eggs and candy goodies. In many communities across our land, pastors faced arrest and fines if they even held Easter religious services.
The “two weeks to flatten the curve” without paychecks or incomes stretched on and on. The American restaurant and hospitality industries suffered greatly. With dining indoors strictly forbidden, small family-owned restaurants had to try to be creative to try and survive and keep their employees working. ‘Take out’ and ‘curbside pickup’ became the norm.
But even this was not enough to keep businesses open. Americans want to dine in at nicer restaurants, not drive up, grab a sack of Styrofoam-encased meals, and then drive home to eat. They can do that at a Burger King. Many restaurants eventually closed and locked their doors for good. Their life-long dreams crashing down around them.
Of course, there were some exceptions. The tony establishment venues favored by the political elites certainly continued to do business, and pretty much as usual. Evidenced by the photographs that regularly surfaced showing politicians (mostly Democrats) violating their own rules they established for ‘everybody else.’
As the months dragged on and on, and the ‘goal-line’ for life getting back to normal kept getting moved farther and farther away, more and more Americans lost jobs and livelihoods. More and more businesses filed for bankruptcy, and dreams were dashed.
And all the while, politicians in Washington kept drawing a paycheck for doing nothing to help out Americans. It was an election season, after all. It was more important for Democrats like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to score political points for the Democrats than it was to put the nose to the grindstone and do something for Americans suffering from the “two weeks to flatten the curve.”

Americans have continued to suffer greatly as “the experts” tried to get a handle on this terrible pandemic. Americans have suffered even more due to the actions of Democrats in statehouses around the country and in Washington, D.C.

Americans gave up Easter celebrations, Memorial Day gatherings, Independence Day bar-b-ques, birthdays and funerals, and the family getting together for Thanksgiving. Now the “experts” and politicians tell us that we have to give up Christmas as well. But I am certain that they will all be violating their own rules for Christmas gatherings, just as they have done all along. At the same time, threatening us with dire consequences if we break their rules.

No kisses for Aunt Betty, no handshakes or man- hugs from Uncle Lou. If Cousin Eddie shows up and he exceeds your guest limit, you’ll have to turn him away. After all, you don’t want the neighborhood ‘COVID Police’ to turn you in.
Well, I’ve got a message for all the Grinches out there telling us that we also have to give up Christmas this year so that we can “flatten the curve” and prevent the spread of COVID.
And that message is Merry Christmas, Ebenezer Fauci, and the rest of you Scrooges, and up yours!

America 2.0 – Rule of the Hard Left

America 2.0 – Rule of the Hard Left

Between climate alarmism, economic activism, and Critical Race Theory, the hard left is attacking our country on three fronts: morally, economically, and structurally. If we do not give power to the hard left, we are told that the planet will become uninhabitable, and everyone on it will die. That is a moral argument for communism. The word ‘suicide’ covers the platform of the hard left, and since the growth in the Democratic Party is all on the hard left, that is…

China’s Invitation to World War III

China’s Invitation to World War III

China is a predator. And it is preparing to devour the world. Xi calls this peaceful and civilized. His vision is to command the world and impose the CCP’s brutal form of communism on the world’s nations, regardless of the destruction they leave behind. For China, it is all about power. The Lion has “awoken,” and it is time for the Eagle to enter the fight…

Liz Cheney is Out, But Elise Stefanik Could Be Even Worse

Liz Cheney is Out, But Elise Stefanik Could Be Even Worse

In “2016, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., was one of a handful of prominent Republicans to skip the GOP convention in Ohio and later refused to mention former President Donald Trump’s name when asked if she would vote for him.” That was after having “initially endorsed and voted for former Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the 2016 GOP presidential primary”. That’s major, don’t you think? And there’s much more…

We Should Not Regulate or Tax CO2, Companies Should Produce More!

We Should Not Regulate or Tax CO2, Companies Should Produce More!

President Biden’s “goals to create a carbon pollution-free [Nineteen Eighty-Four ‘Newspeak’ code for carbon dioxide] power sector by 2035 and net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050” is irresponsible and dangerous. It is crazy that we are even debating the idea of limiting C02 at a huge cost to society when we should actually be promoting more CO2…

Corruption, Coverup, Criminal Indictments: What’s wrong with this picture?

Corruption, Coverup, Criminal Indictments: What’s wrong with this picture?

In December 2020, AG Barr granted special council status to Durham under a presumption that this would provide him some protection from interference in continuing the politically explosive probe after then-President-elect Biden took office in January. We might safely bet that Biden’s AG, Merrick Garland, will be under pressure to shut down Durham before he can issue an embarrassing report or criminal indictments…

How the Dysfunctional Woke Are Ruining America

How the Dysfunctional Woke Are Ruining America

There was no sexual exploitation, darkness, or ugly, lusty desire in the prince’s offer of a kiss to the woman he loved. There was purity, innocence, respect, and love in the gesture. Things that seem to be obviously missing in the woke Cancel Culture. The angry, troubled and woke Katie Dowd’s of this world grasp out to find something negative about everything. Then they “project” from their miserable lives upon us…

Governor Newsom’s Attacks on Churches Get Their Day in the Supreme Court

Governor Newsom’s Attacks on Churches Get Their Day in the Supreme Court

Three of those nine justices are more than happy to have officials in the State of California trash free speech, and freedom of religion, liberty, and property rights, simply because someone they deem an expert tells them it’s okay. Forget rights, forget the rule of law; this is the exercise of tyrannical power, and a foreshadowing of what America will look like in a few years if We the People don’t stand up and regain control of our public servants…

Soros, ANTIFA, BLM, and AMERICA. Whose Side Are You On?

Soros, ANTIFA, BLM, and AMERICA. Whose Side Are You On?

Soros paid huge campaign contributions to Katie Hobbs, the Arizona Secretary of State, and to Paul Penzone, the Sheriff of Maricopa County. Soros didn’t do it because he’s a nice guy. Soros has other motivations and objectives. Katie Hobbs and Paul Penzone are not just recipients of money from a benefactor, but by accepting Soros’ money, they are expected by Soros to…

Who Should Lead the GOP?

Who Should Lead the GOP?

Cheney said: “We Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality.” Except under Trump, when was the last time the GOP even considered genuine conservative principles? When she say’s “steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic…,” she is echoing the Left’s talking points that lead to socialism…

An Open Letter on Critical Race Theory to Gov. DeSantis and Comm’r of Education Corcoran

An Open Letter on Critical Race Theory to Gov. DeSantis and Comm’r of Education Corcoran

An honest, academic, traditional American education is the most important gift we can give our children. A moratorium must be immediately declared to stop all 67 counties from purchasing materials that embrace Critical Race Theory, 1619 Project, and BLM Marxist materials. We should be embracing original sources and truly classical content…
