Are COVID Tyrants Setting Eyes On Christmas Shutdown?

They only have about 7-8 days to really force a shutdown, as doing this the 23rd or 24th will be ignored. Will they try and shut down churches for the 25th?

COVID-19 tyrants now set sights on Christmas

Watch out. One of Joe Biden’s coronavirus advisory board members told CNN that Americans need to give up their Christmas parties in order to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

Who died and made these political hacks the keeper of the constitutional rights?

Look, we know the coronavirus is harmful to health — fatal even to some. But we know, too, that the coronavirus is not a fraction as fatal or even harmful as what the political hacks say.

We know, for instance, that it’s mostly the elderly who die and the children who don’t, and that it’s ridiculous to crowd elderly into nursing homes but keep little kids home from school and call that sound scientific-based COVID-19 policy and protections. Yet that is what government has done.

But even if we didn’t know that — even if we were as ignorant as the day is long, and didn’t know a 70-year-old woman from a six-year-old first-grader — the fact is, in America, there’s still this thing called the Constitution. And as some really smart people have opined, the Constitution doesn’t get shredded even in times of national emergencies.

In other words: We still hold these truths to be self-evident, that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights — and that all the coronavirus mitigating glories in the world don’t change the source of individual rights in this country.

It’s incumbent on government to prove the need to strip citizens’ of their rights. It’s not incumbent on free citizens to prove to government why they deserve to keep their rights.

Unfortunately, that boat sailed in February/March, and there are too many who were cowed by COVID and government threats, and, early on, you could understand why, as we didn’t really know how bad COVID was, how easy it spread, whether it was really dangerous like a modern Black Death or just a bit worse than the flu. We had ideas, but, nothing really, truly concrete. People were scared even before government mandates. And, rather than pushing for wise policies, it really has become a “open it all up, get rid of masks, government go away” vs “arrest people for not wearing masks, lock Other People down” situation.

“Don’t get together with neighbors. No Christmas parties,” said Michael Osterholm, one of Biden’s coronavirus task force members. “There is not a safe Christmas party in this country right now unless everybody for the previous 10-14 days were podded.”

Podded? Get bent.

Maybe the pinheads who point fingers at Americans gathering for Christmas ought to turn their pinhead-y chastisements on the Democrats who keep getting outed for doing just what the pinheads say the rest of us can’t. Better yet, maybe these pinheads ought to keep quiet.

We don’t need the hypocrisies of Democrats who dictate we stay in our “pods,” all the while they go to restaurants, and travel, and gather in groups, and party — the hypocrisies of Democrats who do all this without wearing the very face masks they order the rest of us wear.

But, they wouldn’t really lock things for Christmas, would they?

We failed Thanksgiving and COVID is surging. For Christmas, let’s stay home and stay safe.
As a doctor, my orders are to stay at home this Christmas and not travel. It’s time to fight COVID and not keep letting it surge.

My heart breaks for the families who are missing one of the nearly 300,000 people who have died this year from COVID-19. These hundreds of thousands of people will be missing from dinners and celebrations this bittersweet holiday season. Unfortunately, these families do not have a choice: Their Christmas and holidays will be smaller and lonelier. But for those of us who do, we must voluntarily choose to keep our holiday celebrations smaller, limited only to immediate household members, so that our future celebrations are not scarred by the death of loved ones. (snip)

Let us not fuel this continuing fire that is COVID-19 pandemic. This holiday season, we need to stay at home and not risk further viral spread by visiting family. I had recently written a similar plea to stay home and opt for a virtual Thanksgiving and received a nice letter from a retired educator thanking me for “giving permission” not to gather for the holiday. She shared the article with her family so they could understand that it was not for lack of love, but because of love that she was staying away.

Please show your family this article. I am again giving permission — actually, this time, I am giving doctor’s orders: Opt for virtual Christmas and holidays, and please do not travel. Stay at home to celebrate.

Mind your own business, Doc. But, how many government are thinking about making this mandatory?

    Gov. Wolfshit in PA closed down all restaurants from eat in and retail businesses (except the Big Box stores) from 12/12 to 1/4. Ain’t the Democommies sweet? Closing all those Trump supporting small businesses just at their best time of the year. It the commie Xiden wins these oppressions and insults will grow larger and more frequent.

    Oh, and he is allowing your Freedom of Religion to operate at 25%. I guess it’s great the Nazi didn’t eliminate your Freedom of Religion all together, right?

      My attitude has been that a sizable proportion of the US are ready for secession, this goes back to the 60’s. Likely a longer period but world wars intervened. Now the perfect m is coming together to make my dream a reality. A popular president who had to fight false charges for 4 years, a stolen election, a past president engineering a coup to establish a tyranny, devaluation of our money with excessive debt, control of our country by an enemy (China), clear efforts to make the greater proportion of the population secondary citizens based on skin color, destruction of businesses for a minor virus, destruction of cities due to rioting by liberals for no reason, complete loss of the rule of law, establishment of a royalty class that does not answer to any authority. The list goes on and people have put up with all this as they are still economically comfortable. That is now ending and I might get my country back (CSA).

    It’s Nuclear War on Christmas!!! And Chanukah!! And Kwanzaa!! Fesitvus!!

    How many Americans must die to celebrate Santa’s Birthday (h/t Homer Simpson)?

    Trump and his sycophants view 500,000 dead Americans as the cost of FREEDOM, even when your freedoms are being temporarily restricted.

    Trumptilians are reactionaries one and all.

      You know what? Despite your incendiary phraseology, you are exactly right! I do see the cost of freedom as high, because it has always been high. My great x 9 grandfather risked his life on the North Atlantic to get here on the Mayflower, to escape religious oppression. Seven of my ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, and at least one in the War of 1812. At least one fought in the War of Northern Aggression, my maternal grandfather fought in World War I, and both my father and my mother served during the Korean War. I was just a hair too young for Vietnam, and my terrible eyesight made me ineligible for military service anyway, but both of my daughters have been in the Army Reserve, one still is, and she has served in Kuwait, Qatar and Afghanistan.

      If the government can “temporarily” restrict our constitutional rights for this ’emergency,’ for what other emergencies can it suspend our civil rights? Because a few bad people commit crimes, many on the left want to curtail or completely take away our rights under the Second Amendment.

      Venezuela took away the right of its people to own firearms back in 2012, and by 2016 it was a brutal dictatorship.

      Does it make me a ‘reactionary’ to defend our rights? If so, what does it make those who would give up their rights for a bit of temporary security, cheese-eating surrender monkeys? How about sheeple, which is the term I use.

      What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! — Patrick Henry

      Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. — Benjamin Franklin

      Fifty-six men signed our Declaration of Independence, knowing that they were putting their lives on the line by doing so.

      Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.

      Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

      Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured.

      Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

      They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

      What kind of men were they?

      Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

      Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

      Thomas McKeam of Delaware was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

      Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

      At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

      Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

      John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year, he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later, he died from exhaustion and a broken heart.

      Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

      Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more.

      Standing talk straight, and unwavering, they pledged: “For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

      They gave you and me a free and independent America. The history books never told you a lot about what happened in the Revolutionary War. We didn’t fight just the British. We were British subjects at that time and we fought our own government!

      Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn’t.

      Yet you think nothing, nothing! of surrendering your First Amendment rights to peaceable assembly and the free exercise of religion due to a disease which is fatal in less than 2% of cases. The Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, imposed all sorts of restrictions, and, unlike hypocrites like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo, actually obeyed his own restrictions, caught the virus anyway. His restrictions took away the constitutional rights of Pennsylvanians, yet they still didn’t stop him from catching COVID-19.

      (Mostly) Democratic Governors across our country have imposed all sorts of restrictions, usually without the consent of their state legislatures and sometimes in defiance thereof — see Gretchen Whitless of Michigan — and still COVID-19 is spreading. They have ‘temporarily’ taken away our constitutional rights to protect us from the virus, but it still hasn’t worked. Like Esau, you have sold your birthright for a mess of pottage.

        There will always be tension between individual self-destructive behavior and self-destructive behavior that spills over to wider society.

        If you know you are infected with HIV, should the law prevent you from donating blood?

        Seat belts, airbags, motorcycle helmets, vaccinations for school kids, background checks for teachers, bans on Muslim travelers, restaurant inspections, USDA inspections…
