When my mother told me about the days when America had to ration sugar and she was limited, by her mother, to how many pieces of cake she should consume in one sitting, she told me how her mother tried to validate the rationing by saying, “I hope someday you will have a family and not have to be limited to the amount of cake and sugar you consume. Added to that, was my mother explaining the fear that German u-boats had been seen off the Atlantic coast. it has been proven there was such an existence. In fact, she may not have known, but there were actually German Nazi troops coming ashore in some locations. Despite the fact she, as an individual child, wished to consumer more cake and have her freedom to do so, she learned about the collective freedom of America.
When one claims they have a freedom not to have a vaccination, prove with vaccine ID they have, or wear a mask for te “war” against COVID-19, I think about my mother and the cake she was not able to consume. Such people are an insult to America as they are talking about putting oneself first and more concerned about individual freedom. They are not talking about our nation’s collective freedom to fight a war on a virus. With wearing masks, it is more about protecting others, not about our individual greedy selfish selves. It’s a war, stupid, not individual selfishness and individual freedom. Period.
There I go again. And I am not unhappy about repeating what I say. In fact, I find anyone who finds me to be stupid for saying such a thing, they are being ignorant and unwilling to humble oneself in order to LEARN!
Just released is a survey of Americans regarding approval or disapproval of the stimulus package proposed by the Democrats. The survey claims that 75% of Americans, 46% of them Republicans, approve of this plan. What percentage of the Republicans in Congress approved of it? Hmmmm… 0% perhaps, not 46%? OK. I just speculate (a hypothesis). Certainly, it might be accurate to say that less than 46% of Republicans in Congress approved. Why? Perhaps it is a fear and intimidation of retribution, as with the conviction of Trump, for this? Where does the “fear and intimidation” emanate? From Trumpicans and the Dixie white Republicans.
There are a number of us who have been Republicans longer than most, but have thumbed our noses at the current leadership of the party which goes against the people. We witnessed this in Florida with gerrymandering for the benefit of the REPUBLICAN PARTY only and so as to imitate Jim Crow and curtail black people from serving in the Florida legislature. Same political party in Florida, where Donald Trump has taken up residence, have FRAUDULENTLY stolen elections and made it possible by way of methods of voter suppression. As all Trumpicans do, they want a dictatorship so no one questions what they do and they don’t need to be held accountable, as they whip up the passions of a bunch of American traitors who wave Confederate battle flags and disrupt America with chaos by way of thugs and goons. We witnessed this in Florida as Republicans win by such narrow gaps, as a result of the fraud in the Rick Scott elections and the DeSantis election. Add to this the voter suppression, too. A Republican supervisor of elections in Palm Beach County, in 2000, sabotaged the elections of 2000. We, as Republicans observed it happen. The voters fired that Supervisor of Elections when she was up for re-election in 2004. In 2018, Rick the Prick Scott was unhappy with the Democrat at the helm of the Supervisor of Elections, so he simply fired her, never allowing the voters to make the decision. Yet, these Republicans make a claim that they “speak for the people.” BS. Thus, they have led many of us to thumb our noses at the Republicans and tell the Republican leadership to go to hell. Add all these people to the 46% of Republicans who favor the stimulus package and what do you get? You still get 75%, but what is the percentage of Republicans? It might just be much higher than 46%. But of course, according to Trumpicans, we are just a bunch of assholes, right? Silly us.
