EVIL GARCETTI: This is Outrageous

All these lockdown politicians are truly evil. They ignore their own edicts and know they are ruining businesses and lives. If you are in the area, you need to find out when the protests are and join them!

 Here is the website for the grill.

  1. Dang I wish I was there. Hate to say it, but we all should have told the government to go to hell when they first shut everything down. We should have said go to hell when they said only outdoor dining. Go to hell when they said to distance. Go to hell when they said mask up. These mini-maos (thanks to RW for the “mini mao”) may not be part of the great reset, but I bet they are getting paid and played. Power doesn’t share.
    In the meantime, we either push back or die. There are 100 million people in America I bet that hate this and know it’s wrong. The world may be waiting for Americans to say no more and ignore the government. I think it would rouse the Europeans too.
    “I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces.”
    I know I have listed this quote from Etienne de La Boeties writing “The Politics of Obedience, A Discourse on Voluntary Servitude” before, but if you haven’t read it please do. If you have, dust it off and read it again. It is the answer. I think has it to purchase or DL the book or PDF for free. As always many thanks to the great Mises Institute.

  2. I hope you don’t mind Robert, but I’d like to paraphrase a few quote from Boetie that might encourage folks to read it all.

    Poor, wretched, and stupid peoples, nations determined on your own misfortune and blind to your own good! You let yourselves be deprived before your own eyes of the best part of your revenues; your fields are plundered, your homes robbed, your family heirlooms taken away. You live in such a way that you cannot claim a single thing as your own; and it would seem that you consider yourselves lucky to be loaned your property, your families, and your very lives. All this havoc, this misfortune, this ruin, descends upon you not from alien foes, but from the one enemy whom you yourselves render as powerful as he is, for whom you go bravely to war, for whose greatness you do not refuse to offer your own bodies unto death.
    From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free. , and you are at once freed.

  3. There are not words for the anger I feel about all of this. I live in the area, and I have been participating in anti-lockdown protests here. I can say first hand things are getting seriously volatile, and it is only a matter of time until violence breaks out.

    1. I’m sorry to hear this. The city of Anchorage Alaska is under another lockdown, and Alaska has seen nothing really Covid wise. And I reported here that after a 4 days stay at the historical here I had several nurses tell me they have been ordered to tag people Covid infected falsely. And people are losing their lives and livelihoods. Not to mention their humanity. I feel very sorry for them, and hav written the governor here and many representatives to step in and shut this pos mayor down. She isn’t even elected. The past pos lockdown lover mayor got exposed, by his lover. Oops. Sorry folks. Yes I’ll step down.
      So this regime decides not to hold elections for a new mayor until May I think, and the acting mayor is the latest mini Mao. They are trying to use the pandemic as an excuse to not have an election cause they will all be voted out. It’s just amazing to me that the thought never crosses their mind that they may be burned out?
      For a great explanation on the government only being able to do what you allow them to do to you, and I have wondered if she was a follower and reader of de La Boetie, please read “The Discovery of Freedom” by Rose Wilder Lane. It is fantastic. Understanding Liberty is the only way you can fight for it. Otherwise you won’t know what it looks like and you will settle for much less, and your fight will be for naught.

    2. This surprises me about Anchorage. I guess I picture most of Alaska as not putting up with this kind of crap.

      However, I used to think the same of Utah where I live. Nope! The Republican governor imposed a mask mandate back in early November which was supposed to last two weeks.

      Guess what? He keeps extending it. Salt Lake City is worse (and I'm glad I don't live there).

      Keep the faith, my good man.

    3. Thank you Michael. I know a lot of good people in Anchorage and I don’t think they will stand for it much longer.
      I live in Fairbanks/North Pole, and the attitude is much different, while people wear masks at the big retail outlets that require it, there are several who don’t including me and my family members and several friends, the local governments haven’t dared try any mandates whatsoever. Plus our weak governor has at least said he will not mandate anything anymore, the people ignored the mandates here as the State police made a statement that they would not enforce any health mandate because the mandates were not law and the governor admitted it and said they are very strong suggestions though. Hahaha.
      Be safe Michael!

    4. Oh. I'm totally on board with strongly worded suggestions.

      - "I strongly suggest you to avoid stripes with plaids"

      - "I strongly suggest you not buy firearms"

      - "I strongly suggest you avoid eating red meat"

      Yep, strongly worded suggestions are almost as good as law to me. 😁
