My cmnt: The democrats bleat like scared sheep over grade school children spreading Covid-19 so that for over a year in large, democrat-run cities children have not been educated by Teachers Union teachers or have been forced to wear masks everywhere in the nation. All of which is phony baloney political theater to reinforce to the masses that there is some kind of existential threat that requires strict obedience and compliance to nonsense rules and regulations. The very fact that hundreds of thousands of undocumented democrats have been allowed by these same liars to flood across our southern border with many thousands of them Covid-19 infected and unvaccinated and then bussed all over the nation to undisclosed locales as Super Spreaders shows what they really believe about Covid-19 – that is, either they truly know Covid-19 is overhyped and not dangerous to the vast majority of U.S. citizens (which are both true) or they are monsters who do not care at all about the health or welfare of Americans as long as they can retain absolute power and control by bringing in illegal immigrants to destroy our support systems and eventually vote democrat.
Barack Obama just threw himself a 60th birthday bash worthy of his standing as the only human to win a Nobel Prize for breathing.
You weren’t invited, by the way. 500 of his closest friends, arriving by private jets and yachts, were. Whether by sea, air, or limosine, they winged into the Hamptons to kiss Obama’s ring and bow to his Armani loafers. All were unmasked, of course. But I don’t care.
I don’t even object to Obama having a gigantic party in a mansion on a sprawling, 29 acres that the Great Gatsby would envy, or the fact that his guests left bigger carbon footprints than Godzilla rampaging through Tokyo. I don’t have a problem with the Obamas living on the waterfront. I really don’t care.
If the Obamas, Oprah, George Clooney, Alec Baldwin and his wife with the phony Spanish accent want to warm the planet with flaming drinks – cool. I don’t care about that at all.
What I do care about is that there are two sets of rules. California Governor Gavin Newsom was famously locking down California, arresting people on beaches who didn’t have on masks, all while he was partying at the French Laundry, unmasked. Pelosi was getting her coif, coifed when the rest of us were told we couldn’t. Governor Whitmer locked down her state, told citizens to cancel their vacations, then went on vacation.
My objection is to the blatant hypocrisy. The elites are exempt — at least they think they are. They can, and will, do what they want while demanding that you, the common, unwashed masses obey. Do as I say, not as I do.
The rules are only for the little people, after all.
