When People Are Being Ruled

Miss Rottenmaier was suddenly ruling the entire West…

 

Thanks to Thomas Burk, I have received this wonderful link showing, cough, The Resistance; but, this time, from the bench. I will quote it in its entirety because it is, besides being very informative, also quite funny. Emphases mine:

 

“Before I rule, I’m advising everybody in this room, no public outbursts or displays. The court is still in session until you are told otherwise.
Since the inception of this insanity, the following regulations, rules or consequences have occurred: I won’t get COVID if I get an abortion but I will get COVID if I get a colonoscopy. Selling pot is essential but selling goods and services at a family- owned business is not. Pot wasn’t even legal and pot dispensaries didn’t even exist in this state until five months ago and, in that five months, they have become essential but a family-owned business in existence for five generations is not.

A family of six can pile in their car and drive to Carlyle Lake without contracting COVID but, if they all get in the same boat, they will. We are told that kids rarely contract the virus and sunlight kills it, but summer youth programs, sports programs are cancelled. Four people can drive to the golf course and not get COVID but, if they play in a foursome, they will. If I go to Walmart, I won’t get COVID but, if I go to church, I will. Murderers are released from custody while small business owners are threatened with arrest if they have the audacity to attempt to feed their families.

These are just a few of examples of rules, regulations and consequences that are arbitrary, capricious, and completely devoid of anything even remotely approaching common sense.

State’s attorneys in this state, county sheriffs, mayors, city councils and county boards have openly and publicly defied these orders followed by threats to withhold funding and revocation of necessary licenses and certifications unless you obey.

Our economy is shut down because of a flu virus with a 98 percent plus survival rate. Doctors and experts say different things weekly. The defendant cites models in his opposition. The only thing experts will agree on is that all models are wrong and some are useful. The Centers for Disease Control now says the virus is not easily spread on surfaces.

The defendant in this case orders you to stay home and pronounces that, if you leave the state, you are putting people in danger, but his family members traveled to Florida and Wisconsin because he deems such travel essential. One initial rationale why the rules don’t apply to him is that his family farm had animals that needed fed. Try selling that argument to farmers who have had to slaughter their herds because of disruption in the supply chain.

When laws do not apply to those who make them, people are not being governed, they are being ruled. Make no mistake, these executive orders are not laws. They are royal decrees. Illinois citizens are not being governed, they are being ruled. The last time I checked Illinois citizens are also Americans and Americans don’t get ruled. The last time a monarch tried to rule Americans, a shot was fired that was heard around the world. That day led to the birth of a nation consensually governed based upon a document which ensures that on this day in this, any American courtroom tyrannical despotism will always lose and liberty, freedom and the constitution will always win.”

Well, this made my day. It is a condensed exposition of the modern madness that has become the “permanent emergency” craze. In the US, this is driven by the Anti-Trump brigades, hoping that the misery will work against Trump in November. Elsewhere, it is simply lack of manliness, as millions of adult males accept to be kept at a very short leash by a nanny-mentality that can only emerge in a Country that thinks hat there is nothing wrong with being, as they say, gay.

Italy is now requesting the “services” of thousands of Karens to snitch on their own neighbours. This is nothing to do with Trump. This is the result of living near the petticoat of one’s mother for too long.

When people are being ruled, instead of governed, they need to share a part of the blame, too.

  1. Mentioning “living near the petticoat of one’s mother for too long,” brings to mind the extended families in Italy wherein the very elderly maintained constant and continuous contact with younger relatives who may have been symptomless themselves, jacking up that nation’s death rate.
    In the same fashion states like New York and Pennsylvania that mandated nursing homes accept c-19 patients assuredly increased their own death rates in what amounted to a murder-for-hire exhibition of intent.
    This entire burlesque has been what has been called a ‘plannedemic’ the goal of which was/is to cost Trump the election later this year. The demokrats are even talking about impeaching him again since this isn’t working any better than any of their other lies.
    So yes, the effeminization of western culture has led to nations of sheep ruled by wolves in mad-sheepdogs clothing.

    • Yes. In Italy the inter generational contact is extensive. Even people who live away are in constant communication. This is one of the causes of the mess that happened in Northern Italy (with the direct flight from Wuhan added to the mix).

    • If it wasn’t for the chicom inbound flights the virus wouldn’t have gotten to Italy… or anywhere else.
      The chicoms had secretly quarantined flights from wuhan to anywhere in china but continued them to other countries around the world.
      Fancy that for international cooperation.

  2. My wife and I were refused entry into Sainsburys as a couple. We were allowed to shop if one went in first and then maintained a two metre distance from each other. I said thank you but no thanks and went to Iceland. Tesco is even worse. Commercial despotism without a modicum of common sense!

    • Tesco has the “one way enforcers”.. ;
      Sainbury’s allow only one member per family/household.
      I rejoice every time I find some eggs!!
