Double Standard Thanksgiving

This year is such a strange year. Coronavirus has thrown pretty much the whole thing into a tizzy. And yet, we are still surviving…well, most of us anyway. And we will. But what is very disturbing is the double standard that is showing up in the late fall over our behavior.

I’m talking about the double standard that is on display between those that are making the decisions to tell people to forego Thanksgiving with their families this year, and those of us that are supposed to follow that advice. Because more often than not, it’s a double standard.

In Illinois, the Democrat Governor, JB Pritzker has told people NOT to travel over the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a sure way to spread the virus, and it’s not allowed in his state. Of course, he won’t be there if you decide to turn a blind eye to his travel ban…he’s going to Florida for Thanksgiving.

In Washington, Oregon, and California, there were 20 members of their state legislature that were invited to go to a corporate sponsored retreat. Nothing too unusual about that, except that those states have seen a huge spike in COVID cases recently, and have ordered people to stay at home. Those 20 people? Yeah, they’re going to the Fairmont in Maui for four days (at $600 a day for rooms), all on the corporate bigwigs that wanted to rub elbows (but not shake hands?) with them.

In the great state of Oregon, if you have more than 10 people over to your house for Thanksgiving, it’s such an egregious offense, you could actually be watching the second half of the Detroit Lion’s game from jail. But if you want to go out and riot and smash some windows of some businesses, that’s ok. There’s no penalty for violating the stay-at-home order for that!

In California, Governor Gavin Newsome decided enough was enough, and told restaurants they could no longer have indoor seating because of the spread of the virus. Of course, that doesn’t apply to the Governor. He then immediately went off and joined a bunch of his pals for a posh dinner inside a restaurant. When he was questioned about it, he said, “Well, I guess I probably shouldn’t have done that…I should have walked away”. Ya think?

We’ve seen this time and time again. Lori Lightfoot, Chicago’s mayor wants people to stay at home and not get sick, yet she’s seen celebrating Joe Biden’s (supposed) victory. And Chuckie Schumer, that over-blown bag of wind from New York? Yeah, he was dancing in the streets not wearing a mask. Yet, it’s a fine if you’re on the streets of New York without one. I wonder if he paid his yet?

When are we going to require that before our “leaders” decide to impose restrictions on our freedoms that they adhere to the same freedoms? How many Nancy Pelosi hair salon visits are we going to put up with before we realize that these people are idiots that don’t have the right to tell us what to do, and vote their asses out of office? If you’re going to lead, you first need to know how to follow. Apparently that’s advice that’s fallen on deaf ears.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. It goes along with the fact that Congress passes laws all the time on all citizens of the United States & it’s territories, and then places an exception to the bill, “Except the United States Congress & it’s members.” They’ve been doing it for years and nobody even gives a damn or asks why. So, why would anybody question elected officials who lives as if the rules are for the, not for me?

  2. A typical politician, they live by the code, “It’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.”

    But if you want to really understand what’s really happening with all these crazy rules from Democrat Governors you need to see the forest thru the trees and look back in history to 1933 Germany. These are just the little incremental steps. They first get the population to adhere to the small rules before they come down with the big totalitarian ones.

    The Left has censored us, they have doxed us, they have attacked us, they have divided us, they have threatened our jobs and our families, and now they are even “rigging” elections. Their “cancel culture” is attempting to cancel anything conservative or Christian!

    If the Left gets away with the voter fraud they pulled on Trump you can forget about the Republican’s winning their Senate seats in Georgia, and you can forget about any potential Red Wave in the 2022 election.

    Attorney Sidney Powell had it right when she made the recent comment that we are living in 1775. Another Revolution is knocking at our door.

    Call me crazy, call me a conspiracist, but if you don’t see what’s coming or what our country is turning into, I feel sorry for you.
