Posted on 04/26/2020 4:18:43 AM PDT by Kaslin
Are you enjoying your first taste of socialism? Life in America today is a sneak preview of life in Cuba or Venezuela. Democrats love it. This is the future they plan for you. The current economic catastrophe is exactly what America will look like if we institute the Green New Deal.
The goal is to defeat climate change by killing your job, taking away your car, closing your business and turning America into Cuba or Venezuela.
It's a progressive Democrat's rainy dream.
And isn't it great? You don't need to go to work. Money magically appears in your bank account. Hopefully, you can live on $1,200 every six weeks for the rest of your life.
You get to spend long days watching daytime talk shows and movies on Netflix -- you know, the things Democrats call a "typical day" for their voters.
And think of the money you can save on gas by not going anywhere. Soon all those nasty, polluting, carbon-emitting vehicles will be just a memory of the past. How wonderful will it be to have time to "just think" as you wait hours for those new energy-efficient buses and subways?
And, with all those nasty "nonessential" businesses closed, you'll have plenty of time to converse with your neighbors as you wait in line to see if anything is available for you to buy. It's socialist nirvana.
So, please be honest with me: Are you enjoying your small taste of life in a socialist country? Are all these great benefits of socialism what you expected? You know, being told the business you spent your life building is nonessential and being forced to close; being stuck at home and not allowed to hold a job; having only the money your benevolent government decides you need; waiting in long supermarket lines only to see empty shelves; finding out toilet paper is now a valuable commodity; being told where you're allowed to go; being banned (in some states such as Michigan) from traveling to your second home; not being allowed to go to church; and having all your movements monitored and recorded.
Having fun yet? Welcome to a test drive of socialist America.
Democrats are just getting started. Soon they'll tell you whether you're allowed to enjoy yourself anymore. No more golf, bars, nightclubs, liquor stores, spas, movie theaters, bowling alleys. Oh, wait, that's already happened.
But of course, marijuana stores are open. They're "essential." This is what Democrats like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been pushing for years. This is their rainy dream.
In a truly socialist country, it is much worse. In a truly socialist country, your internet is tightly monitored; television is controlled by government; and all media is propaganda -- even a step worse than it is in America today. Although, The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are all trying hard to give socialist banana republics a run for their money.
In a socialist country, as envisioned by today's Democratic Party, you will not have a car. Those will be reserved for party bosses like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer and AOC. You will have to work in a state-assigned job. Doctors and janitors will make the same salary.
There will be huge "advantages," according to the crazy socialists of the Democratic Party. Stores will be much smaller. And with the closure of all those greedy corporations, buying decisions will be much less confusing. The shelves will be empty anyway, so who will need all that space?
And, to achieve a small carbon footprint, you will live in a tiny apartment and travel to work only on public transportation. But isn't that precisely why New York City is the worst coronavirus-infected area in the country? Half the country's dead are in one city. Oops, liberals forgot to mention that little problem.
And toilet paper? There will never again be a shortage. The soft kind will only go to socialist politicians and government bureaucrats. The rest of us will do our part to save the planet by using biodegradable corn husks.
I've saved the best for last. One hundred and ten percent of you will vote -- just like in many Democratic inner cities in the past few elections. There will always be more votes than registered voters. That's the way socialists like it. And, your ballot will show up in the mail. Don't worry if you don't receive it. The person sent by the government to pick it up will have extras. He or she will even help you fill it out. In a couple of years, it will get even easier, as there will be only one box to check.
It is impossible for them to win an honest election.
So, does your brief experience with socialism make you want to live like this always?
As for me, if the choice is to be locked in my home, close my business and wait for the government to save me, or to face the remote risk of death from the coronavirus and keep living my life and earning a living for my family ... I’ll risk my life and choose freedom every time.
We are a nation of risk takers. We don’t run and hide. We’re all first responders. We face danger and live life. That’s what made America the most exceptional nation and people in world history.
If you don’t like this test drive of socialism, I suggest we all start making our voices heard. Repeat after me: “OPEN THE ECONOMY. OPEN THE ECONOMY. OPEN THE ECONOMY.”
Finally ... since the slogan “Keep America Great” no longer applies to President Donald Trump’s reelection after this catastrophe, let me suggest a new campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again, Part 2.”
Caps and T-shirts to follow.
Welcome to Narnia, where it’s always winter and never Christmas.
In the light of what has happened I don’t believe we are going to have an election this year. The reasons are good and justified but we are going to have to do this and live with it.
No. Socialism is created as a democratic process. The most lacking in intellectual ability, combined with the laziest among us, vote in a government who tax and control the productive through government’s monopoly on force.
Just look at all of the police around this country so absolute willing to carry out their ‘orders’ to control the populuce.
I guess we cant say that all media is controlled by the government, but it is pretty much all controlled by Democrats.
There is Conservative media, but it has a really hard time getting seen or heard because all of the major media outlets are controlled by Democrats.
If you arent looking for Conservative content, you are unlikely to stumble in to it.
Just saying, most media is Democrat Propaganda; from your kids Disney movies to popular action movies, it is often very subtle, but it is there if you are looking for it.
You see, all .... I mean all .... all the very ALL of this is because people were simply TOLD so.
We here in FR, of ALL people, are practiced in the art of sceptical research.
BUCKHEAD showed us what we can do if we don't swallow the hook.
A good example of "being told" is Fauci and Birx hammering us every day about remaining in our socialist situation IN SPITE OF the (now) many un-endorsed reports from DOCTORS describing their own experiences and now TELLING us (as opposed to suggesting) ... THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC, HIBERNATE, SOCIALLY DISTANCE AND ET CETERA'S !
There is NO ONE here, if you're still reading, that didn't leave home the moment you could, PRIMARILLY because we had reached a point in our lives that we believed we could make our own decisions and left behind forever; BECAUSE I SAID SO
So .... why have we picked that back up ?
And now for part two of why you're sick and tired of me;
PUBLIC SCHOOL !
We live within at LEAST six generations of approximately 94% of ALL America came through a public school SYSTEM.
We "joke" about using clever words ... Government Indoctrination Centers .... but LOOK AT US ! ! !
WHAT ... in God's name are we DOING, but obeying a government DICTAT !
So I suggest if they can just say so ..... we can just stop.
I don't need even President Trump, givi8ng me the all clear.
And I damned sure don't need a subliminal fear planted in my subconscious that prevents me from feeling and acting alive.
Remember ..... WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE, and that includes our immuno system.
God didn't make junk
No biggie, but you'd think all of you'd been exiled to the Gulag. You wouldn't have lasted through the first five minutes of Boot Camp and you know it.
Sounds like Stalag 13.
The Philosophy of Failure
The Creed of Ignorance
The Gospel of Envy.
Sick people stay home ..... not the well.
Great show, too bad I have trouble watching Bob Crane anymore. Kind of like how Woody ruined my ability to watch his films because of his personal life. Not being judgmental per se, just an ick factor.
At times same here.
I’d like to have seen HH get a wrap of some kind though.
You have no idea what I’m talking about and wasted your time with this post which is confusing and inane at best.
What we have is this:
1) We have a traitorous element in our government/political class & society that has been working for at least 40 years to bring this nation down through what we call the New World Order (NWO) or Deep State through the political process.
2) The election of Donald Trump was backed by strong elements in our industrial complex and military community. Who also worked actively to ensure his election. This screwed up the NWO plans and we all see how these traitorous elements are working fiercely to undo this.
3) The 2018 mid-term outcome was largely facilitated through voter fraud and led to this fake impeachment fiasco.
4) It has become painfully apparent with this Covid-19 “pandemic” is an asymmetric bio-warfare attack that is a last ditch effort on their part to achieve their goals. This scheme and other information (i.e. arrests of US academia, Chinese spies, State Department warning states about Chinese influence etc) that we have the Chinese behind this and people in our country who are working with them. They are traitors pure and simple.
Now in light of these facts we have had in this Covid-19 attack (which got out of hand) an act of war by the Chinese and American traitors. There is no way in hell there is going to be an election because of the risk that is involved. I know enough people in the know who understand these thing and who are working very hard to expose this and strike back at these scum bags.
When they come for the guns the people will come for them.
Opening scene: Hitler blows himself up. Victory parades everywhere.
Cut to the following series spinoff pilots:
Schultz back home having a nice homemade wiener schnitzle & spaetzle surrounded by his loving family. LeBeau opening a cafe. Kinch opening a TV repair shop. Carter becoming a college professor. Newkirk getting a game show gig. The Gestapo getting jobs at Argentinian Walmarts. Klink playing violin for his grandkids.
I kind of like that.
Fitting for a 2 parter or a movie.
You said EXACTLY what you wanted to induce thought in others provided by your words.
I created THIS specifically for an occasion like now, because of other replies.
BTW ... steal this meme ....
... and in my defense, I pretty much had every thought process you described within the words I used ..... it was all said a different way
Wayne Allyn Root gets it right.
Memes are great and I like to use them too! But this situation at this time requires thoughtful analysis and the stating of facts.
