Time To Get Real With COVID

I don’t need Anthony Fauci telling me what to do or what not to do when it comes to COVID. This guy has consistently been wrong, flip-flopped on what advice he’s giving, and then doesn’t follow his own advice. It became very evident, even during the Trump administration that Fauci is more into himself than he is about getting through this pandemic.

And I don’t need the CDC or any politician, Trump OR Biden telling me what to do. They don’t have a damn clue what’s what. When you see people like Nancy Pelosi threatening to arrest members of the House of Representatives, and fining them $500 a day for not wearing a mask in the House, and then there is video of her putting a mask on just before going before the TV cameras, and taking it off immediately after, there’s something fishy afoot. I don’t trust that type of logic. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has also been guilty of this, showing up for a photo op with no mask, putting one on just before the shot was taken, and then immediately taking it off. Is it only when you’re on some sort of camera you have to be worried about catching COVID?

And then there’s the latest super-spreader events. The first being the coward Texas Democrats who flew (maskless) to Washington DC on a private, Miller Lite-filled jet to escape having Republicans pass a new voting rights bill in the Lone Star State. Rather than show up and do their job, they decided to run away. And what happened when they did? A lot of them apparently were COVID spreaders and were infected. They infected members of both the House and Senate’s staff as well as the Biden administration members who were there “supporting” their cowardly actions.

Finally, you had the debacle of a former President’s 60th birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard about 10 days ago. Bobo Obama spent a ton of money to celebrate, and had invited 500 people to the bash on Saturday. But he started partying on Thursday, and continued all weekend long. He said he had to pare back the guest list because of COVID. A lot of media types were uninvited (like Stephen Colbert), and others, like Oprah Winfrey sent regards because they were afraid that it would cause them to get sick. Still, about 300-400 people showed up on Saturday to party in one of the largest tents ever constructed in the state of Massachusetts. And, as was shown by several guests who took videos and pictures during the event, no one was wearing a mask. What’s the result? Well, Martha’s Vineyard had 48 cases of COVID the week prior to the event. This week that number has ballooned to over 120, and is continuing to rise. Now, truthfully, it’s still a little early to see whether or not this was because of Obama. It usually takes about 14 days for the virus to show itself, so we should see a spike around the country in the next week or so from those that attended.

Here’s the deal. Democrats, if you’re going to want to “bury COVID” as Joe Biden has told us he could do (and hasn’t obviously done yet), then you need stop telling us what to do and doing the opposite. There are too many media outlets showing you violating your own rules. If you’re not wearing masks, America shouldn’t be wearing masks. If you’re not social distancing, don’t expect us to social distance. It’s that simple. There are no two sets of rules in this country. Either you follow the rules you created, or shut the hell up!

The Texas Sellout

Oh, it was such a grand display of unity! Such a wonderful act of kindness to minorities throughout the state of Texas! And to think it should come to such an abrupt and raucous end is unimaginable!

I’m talking about the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Or, at least that’s what it should have been called.

You know the drill, right? It was started about ten years ago in Wisconsin, when a group of Democrats who didn’t want a bill passed by Republicans fled their state and went to Chicago, thus making it impossible for the state legislature to pass the bill, because it didn’t have a quorum. And the Democrats in Texas decided to take it to a whole new level when the Texas House was debating the voting rights bill. Democrats took a private jet to Washington, DC to hang out with the likes of Joe Biden, Chuckles Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi. And along the way, they decided to infect a few dozen Congressmen and women as well as members of the President’s staff.

They quickly realized that they had made a monumental error in judgement. They were running out of money, they had no place to sleep. They had no money for food. They used Twitter to beg for their constituents to send them food, beverages, money, anything! My Lord! They were wearing the same clothes day after day!

Well, the latest rendition to this is that four of the Democrats couldn’t take it any longer. They returned to Austin, Texas and went back to work…back to what their constituents pay them to do. That means that the Texas House was only five votes short of reaching the quorum. Of course, Texas Governor, Greg Abbott has threatened to arrest and fine all of the Democrats that return the minute they set foot on Lone Star soil.

But it doesn’t end there.

The rest of the outlaw clan, still holed up in federal park benches in DC, tweeted that they were upset at the four that “threw them under the bus” by returning to Austin. That has to be the most insipid comment ever made. They didn’t take a bus anywhere. They took a private jet and limos.

Here’s the deal. I get it that you disagree with what’s being debated in your state house. I understand probably better than the state representatives the issues at hand. I see that they feel they are standing up for the minorities in their district, as well as the old and the infirmed. And I realize certainly better than they do that they’re idiots for attempting this. All they are doing is delaying the inevitable. Now, they’ve taken and split their party into two factions. That’s never a good thing politically.

And while you’re state house is going to pass a bill that you don’t like, my question is, what has all of this accomplished? Oh, you’ve gotten some national news coverage that you wouldn’t have gotten otherwise, but really…what did this do? You delayed the inevitable by a few weeks. But eventually, you’re going to either come home to Texas and either be arrested or forced to vote no against overwhelming approval. You’ve done nothing of consequence to further your cause. You’ve displayed a very childish behavior, and are acting like buffoons. It’s time to either grow up, go home and face whatever music is being played, or quit that particular profession and go to work a McDonalds.

Greg Abbott needs to arrest them when they return. He needs to hold them accountable for their actions, so they can show their constituents that there are consequences for bad decisions. And they have made terrible decisions. But then again, Democrats usually do!

UPDATE: The voting rights bill that the Democrats fled the state to avoid voting on, passed the Senate in Texas yesterday, despite a 15 hour filibuster by a Democrat Senator. Now it’s up to the House to get it passed once they can find four more rogue House members. That will happen as soon as their jail terms are either suspended or fulfilled.

Why Are We Still Talking About This?

Look, I know as well as I’m sitting here that COVID is something that is like the flu in that it will most likely be around in one variant or another for probably the rest of our lives. That’s not what I’m intimating here. I’m more wondering why it is that since the Democrats have the House, and the Senate, and Joe Biden had a 200 page plan to get rid of COVID, why are we still talking about it?

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve traveled through six different states (Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri). It was like traveling through six different parts of the world. In Arizona, we are pretty much back to normal. If you’ve been vaccinated, you don’t need a mask pretty much anywhere except doctor’s offices, medical clinics, and hospitals. In New Mexico, you’d better replenish your supply. Same goes for Arkansas, though most people are ignoring it. In Texas, they are in the middle. Some places want you to have a mask, others aren’t so picky. Oklahoma is in the same boat. Missouri seems to be more like Arizona. I didn’t see a lot of people wearing masks. And it’s like that around most of the country from what I hear.

So, why are we still talking about COVID, when a) some 60-70% of the population has already been vaccinated, with at least one shot. But the Biden administration fell way short of hitting their goal of herd immunity (70-80%) by the 4th of July. In Republican run states, it’s pretty much back to normal. In Democrat run states, they want everyone to be sheltered in place. Well, not that bad, but close.

Here’s the takeaway on this. Fauci doesn’t have a clue what’s happening, and more and more Americans don’t believe him. He’s waffled on this from day one, and continues to do so. Democrats want to control the population as much as they can…it’s what liberals do. And it’s what they want to do here. Remember the line, “Never let a crisis go to waste”? Well, that’s the reason you’re still hearing about another round of stimulus, and all of the news about Delta variants, and hot spots in Florida or Texas, where they aren’t doing anything special except living their lives. You don’t hear the stuff about how Nancy Pelosi’s aide and a member of the Biden White House went to an event with those Democrats from Texas’ House of Representatives that ran away from their civic duties so the House wouldn’t have a quorum and not be able to vote on a voter’s rights reform bill. Both of them got COVID from that event. Geez…I thought all of those higher ups had been vaccinated!

The fact of the matter is that Democrats all over the country are rooting for a long COVID pandemic. They can control you easier. They can pass more liberal legislation designed to take away more of your freedoms. They want to be able to go door to door and tell you that the vaccine in your arm is because of Democrats, and you need to remember that come next November, and in November of 2024. And it’s all crap.

It’s time to get back to life. It’s time to put the Democrats in their place. One more liberal idea that fell flat on it’s face. And we’ve got only one group to prove. I’ll let you take a guess as to what group that is.
