There is nothing “free” about our country right now. I have NEVER seen such stupidity & open evil in my entire life. People used to be sneaky about their plans to destroy their enemy, but even as they are all being exposed, their friends that own the media continue to be silent in the hopes the brainwashed don’t find out or if they do, won’t give truth any credibility.
Jesus told us we all suck, in other words of course & He’s right. Man is not good by nature. Some that don’t believe in God follow His commandment to love one another & think they are just good all on their own. I believe if the evil ones of the world do manage to silence all Jesus ever told us, that we definitely would be monsters that only were good so we don’t get punished by our jailers who would no show mercy.
Some of the parks are finally opening in Michigan. They are only open a few hours a day, for a few days a week for now. I personally think this is horrible but as one of many captors I am grateful for any reprieve right now. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time for them to “ramp up” the lockdowns again until their agenda of a global socialist regime becomes the norm. Anyone fighting them now? Not many. Most are too “conditioned.”
I’ve been out a few times now with my camera. Snapping shots of whatever catches my eye. I think I missed most of the water lilies for now. It was a beautiful view across the lake when these shots were taken. There are more people than I usually see since we all have such a short window of time in which to enjoy this park.
The first day there were excited wildlife running all around. Not sure they enjoyed all the human intrusion after many months of being free from our species. I think this chipmunk was running to tell his friends of the impending invasion.
The gardens were not up to the normal standards due to their annuals being planted much later than they should have been. There were a few perennials to see but the woods were beautiful! I didn’t take the full drive this time because of increased pedestrian traffic. It was my understanding that the trails were open & normally this is where the foot traffic is so the cars are not impeded.
Sorry for the redundancy, but I do love Japanese Iris!
Praying everyone is doing OK in these very difficult & challenging times. God bless you all. Peace out.
That we are being held prisoners in our once free nation when one of my grandfathers X8 fought in the “War of Independence” & won until the rise of the fascist New World Order or what is laughingly called Democratic socialism. Wouldn’t it be weird that my family has to fight once again for this guaranteed freedom?
NO….it wouldn’t, it shouldn’t have to happen. You can’t just waltz into a country, run for office & cheat your way in for the sole purpose of destroying it from the inside. We have laws set in place preventing this nonsense….so why the crickets? Why are so many in our countries courts & government offices OK with this?
I applaud & support all who are defying illegal “hide under the bed orders” from the petty Democratic socialist tyrants in various states in America & anywhere around the world. Democratic socialism is fascist, not liberal as they claim to be. We will all be breaking free & I’m sure those behind this first act of bio-terrorism against the people will ramp up their ways to infect.
The fact that they are media supported in one of the most dangerous, diabolical acts to force unsafe vaccines on the public is beyond outrageous. It will be stopped & all involved in this very evil idea will pay for this kind of reckless & dangerous plan against the masses. There are way more of us than there are of them. It would be a great idea if they would remember this. Their contempt for the people is no longer hidden & many really do feel “above the law.” The false accusation they throw at their victims when they dare to defend themselves against their treachery.
I want to share a very good post from Tucker Carlson. I don’t watch news much but I know he is on Fox News & has a very realistic & fair idea about things. Apparently being rational & fair is now labeled “conservative.” It’s not conservative to be sane & ordered. Shows you who the haters of these types of decent folk really are. For those who are media lovers, I’m sure this post will “trigger” you. My apologies.
“I’m sorry but anyone that thinks that social distancing is a good idea for the next few years, actually wants to be micro-chipped or thinks that a “benevolent” dictatorship is for the good of humanity, I don’t want to give that point of view any of my energy.
I am a free Human Being and if you want to stay home, stay home. That’s your sovereign right to choose.
If you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. That’s your sovereign right to choose.
If you want to avoid large crowds, avoid large crowds. That’s your sovereign right to choose
I am not required to descend into poverty for YOU.
I am not required to abstain from human contact for YOU.
I refuse to participate in “quarantine life” until there’s an unsafe, untested vaccine released in eighteen months.
I refuse to receive said vaccine to make others feel more safe. That’s my sovereign right to choose!
If you’re convinced the vaccine is safe and effective, you can get it yourself.
Some of you are allowing fear and policies devoid of scientifically accurate data to destroy the country you live in and ruin your life.
We have a constitutional right to take risks. Life is full of bacteria and viruses, many of which spread before symptoms manifest and after they subside.
We have a sovereign right to receive OR refuse vaccines.
The data was inaccurate at best; purposely overblown to justify government overreaction at worst.
Stop allowing the government to destroy:
The food supply
Access to healthcare
Our mental health & freedom
When the “new normal” is filled with starvation, depression, suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, imprisonment, governmental spying, and pure DESPERATION, the “virus” is going to look preferable to the world you helped facilitate.
I’m going to turn this around on people from now on. Those that say I’m (or anyone that supports this) putting money over lives by wanting the country back open for business…
–YOU don’t care about the people that will kill themselves out of hopelessness
–YOU don’t care about small businesses that’ll close their doors (THEIR LIVELIHOOD) permanently
–YOU don’t care about the children/women/men that’ll be victims of domestic abuse
–YOU don’t care about people defaulting on their mortgages
–YOU don’t care about bills going unpaid by families with ZERO income right now
–YOU don’t care about people wondering where their next meal will come from
–YOU don’t care about the people that’ll lose their sobriety and slip back into alcoholism
–YOU don’t care about the people that will starve
–YOU support the inevitable looting that’ll take place
–YOU don’t care about anyone that’s murdered the longer this shut down goes on
–YOU don’t care about people’s mental health
–YOU don’t care about the children that DO need teachers and educators to guild & educate them
–YOU don’t care about the economy crashing down around us
–YOU DON’T CARE.
–YOU love your shackles
–YOU are pathetic, begging your leaders for MORE shut down and MORE regulations and MORE handouts
I will NOT tolerate another person telling me that I don’t care about lives.
I care about the situation in its entirety.
But YOU don’t care about any of that so…
YOU stay home.
YOU wear a mask.
YOU live in fear. I on the other hand will not. As is my sovereign right to choose NOT TO.”
Our Democratic socialist governor in Michigan Gretchen Whitless, has decided to again extend our sentence until at least June 12. This is outrageous & out of the question. We need an Executive Order to demand our Constitutional rights be enforced & these petty, ugly tyrants be shown the door.
Giving glory to God & sharing something that was shared with me today on Facebook.
This is a cut & paste comment I cut & pasted to my blog. Author unknown.
OK, I’m going to try to be empathetic with this one. I won’t call it a hoax because I believe it exists. I believe there is a virus that sickened some, I also believe it even killed some. Killed, as in the actual primary cause of their death…… AKA, someone who wouldn’t have otherwise passed away if it weren’t for this virus. So I’m going to go out on a limb here and risk a few more lost “friends” with this statement……. I honestly think that this whole chaotic mess will go down in history as the biggest, most costly, most fear inducing, most panic causing RUSE, EVER perpetrated against mankind.
It’s given birth to some really horrible offspring, some incredibly intrusive and invasive government intervention. It’s revealed our greed and our capability for hatred & deceit. It’s turned neighbor against neighbor, community against community, State against State, and even Country against Country.
This was a perfect opportunity to see what we were made of, if we would choose presumed safety over freedom, if we would choose government controlled privileges over God given rights, and most importantly, what we might be willing to trade off to make a deal with the “devil“. Honestly, LOOK at us…..
We bought out all the toilet paper, we bought out all the sanitizer and wipes, we made masks, we reported our neighbors and friends who didn’t comply with the “rules”, we even stepped 6 feet away from the people we shook hands with a week prior or even hugged.
As sheep, we got a 98 on this test, some even got extra credit for showing extra fear, but as humans and as a society, we failed miserably.
And as Americans, we totally failed. We come from bloodlines where when things didn’t feel right, we resisted, we fought and “usually” won. Oh sure, the Canadians kicked our ass one time, but today they’re much like us. But seriously, in a month or two, take a look back on how easily this divided us, not just nations, but even here in our own neighborhoods, even among families!
Remember the times when an emergency would bring us together??? A hurricane, a flood, a tornado or snow-storm??? I do! We shared EVERYTHING, took care of each other, made it all work out for all involved. We NEED to get back to that, we need to remember that we are NOT each others competition or enemy, but rather that we are friends and neighbors.
We really only have one common enemy, and that’s the one that want’s to divide us so it can more easily conquer us. Call it a virus, call it the government, call it whatever you wish…… BUT the bottom line is, for as long as we stand side by side, together, NOTHING has a chance. Look at history and you’ll see how wars were started. Yes, every single one!!! Turn one faction against the other and watch attrition take over. You pick, race, religion, politics, ethnicity, class or caste…… DON”T let “them” do it again, EVER!!!!
This is a comment I am adding: Many years ago I heard some pastor say that our current society is merely coasting on the fumes of their forefathers Christianity & when that is gone, we were doomed as a people. I agree. There is a reason that Jesus really is the Savior of the World for unless His commandment of loving one another is strictly adhered to, we haven’t got a prayer, literally.
I feel the need to post some disturbing developments & information that has come to me attention earlier today. I would like to post something fun or amusing or even hopeful but I won’t lie to folks.
The only laughs I have had today was going on some Facebook pages I follow for their sometimes off color or radical humor like “Funny AsShit.” Also videos on youtube that offer political humor as well as cute animals or music to pass the time. Never mind that I have hundreds of shows/movies on DVD’s I never watch. I’m partial to “Psych” episodes & just found a very cute BBC children’s show called “Young Dracula” on PlutoTV. Great cast, especially Keith-Lee Castle playing the Count, a single father of two. Never heard of him before this, but he & the entire cast are fabulous. Not sure why so much talent is buried in our world meanwhile the usual suspects are paid the big bucks to further agendas for their mainstream bosses.
So I see this First think on Facebook today. Someone shared it with me. I am sorry if this is upsetting to some but this is the reality we currently face & we have to do something about it. Be safe, but don’t be complacent when the current “powers that be” tell you to do something foolish or not helpful.
<<<During the Holocaust, they convinced people to put their families on trains (for their own good/safety) so they could be taken to a “safe place”. We all know the result of that. Have you ever heard of history repeating itself? I watched in horror as the police in China hauled a woman by both arms and both legs, shoved her in a van, and took her to a “camp” for COVID victims. We’ll never know what happened to those people. And with what’s taking place right here in our own country, don’t think for one second that it couldn’t happen here. We the people have proven just how quickly the government can take over all aspects of our lives. We complied based on fear tactics……….some of which are very untrue, and magnified/sensationalized to get you on that “train”. Please read. It’s for the good of our country.
Mark Levin is a very smart lawyer who worked in government during the Reagan administration. He knows his law.
– MARK LEVIN: “To be clear. President Trump hasn’t shut a single business. The Governors did.”
“We are seeing the most draconian measures ENFORCED at some STATE & LOCAL LEVELS of government that we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet, rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.
President Trump’s guidelines are VOLUNTARY & TEMPORARY but some Democrat states & cities are taking it one step further, extending the lockdown and CRIMINALIZING behavior. Bill Gates wants to keep America locked down for 10 months! THAT’S WHAT LIVING UNDER A COMMUNIST REGIME LOOKS LIKE, AND YOU APPLAUD.
People are being arrested in some states for spending too much time outside, and you applaud.
Pastors are being arrested in some states for daring to hold church services, and you applaud.
A child’s birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud.
A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it’s deemed “non-essential travel”, and you applaud.
A father is handcuffed & arrested in an empty park for playing softball with his 6-year-old daughter & refusing to turn over his ID, and you applaud.
A lone paddleboarder in the ocean on a beach without any other people around is arrested because he’s violating quarantine orders, and you applaud.
Businesses are being forcibly closed and padlocked and owners arrested for refusing to shut down, and you applaud.
Dairy farmers are being incentivized to stop dairy farming and to sell their herds, and you don’t seem to understand the implications.
You’re being told to use hotlines and online forms provided by your local governments to report your neighbors who don’t obey, and you comply.
You scold people day after day for not obeying government edicts, and if any of us dare to question what’s happening, you lecture about how we’re a danger to society and we just don’t care about people dying.
You’ve somehow managed to convince yourselves that the people whose lives are affected by a virus are MUCH more important than the people whose lives are being destroyed (and in many cases, leading to death) by the effects of a worldwide economic shutdown and impending worldwide depression the likes of which no one has ever seen before.
At what point will you start QUESTIONING what’s going on?
At what point will you ask how the virus got here from China? (as if it wasn’t manufactured here and even over there)
At what point will you question why the fake news keeps defending the Communists?
How far do you have to be pushed before you’re jolted awake from your slumber?
How far are you willing to go with this?
If they told you to load your families onto train cars so that you could be taken to Virus Protection Facilities for your own safety, would you do it? —> YES. Yes, you would.
That much has become painfully obvious to me. And the whole time, you’d be shaking your finger and yelling at those of us who refused, accusing us of being “a danger to society” and “not caring if people die.” But they don’t have to load you onto train cars and take you to Virus Protection Facilities, or force you to comply, because you do that voluntarily.
The fake news controls your mind. They control you through fear. They control you by convincing you that the world is a scary dangerous place, but they’re here to protect you, care for you, and keep you safe, just as long as you OBEY.
They know that as long as you’re locked inside your comfortable home with Netflix, Hulu, CNN, NBC, ABC, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a cell phone, you’ll comply. No force is necessary for the majority of the herd.
Bill Gates even wants to mandate antibody tests. ONLY those who are immune from VIRUSES will be allowed to leave their homes & work. YOU ARE IMPRISONED, willingly, and you’re too blind to see it.”
I will not be blinded!
I will not be controlled by the government! Amendment 1 – Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.>>
People, always be aware of what is happening & never just allow paid talking heads to tell you. They will only tell you what they are allowed & instructed to tell you. They do not speak the truth anymore & this should scare you.
Also be careful when anyone asks or tells you to do anything in this fear based environment. If you remember that living is one big crap shoot & sooner or later we will all crap out, you will feel much better & less pressured to take a vaccine that may cause illness or even death to some. Of course if they were to start something like this their story would be that some will die, just like with all medical procedures that carry this risk. That is nonsense.
I didn’t realize how vaccines can work or the reason you might die or become ill if you come in contact with a virus after receiving an inoculation that has not had all the bugs worked out such as what happened with vaccines for Dengue Fever causing some to have an “over reaction” or deadly reaction once vaccinated & then coming in contact with that germ. Vaccines are not some magical “get out of sickness & death” guarantee. In fact sometimes it’s the exact opposite. Please do your research, though I have found that Google & others that control our media are blocking & making some things disappear if it makes certain people look bad.
Before the Coronavirus turned into a global shitstorm I posted this picture from Mexico. Now it’s just a sad reminder of our current hell and those taking full advantage of our vulnerability.
Does Shelter in Place or “Lockdown” have you bored as Iggy yet?
Or are you scared of what’s happening here, cause what it is ain’t exactly clear…..or is it?
You hear the drill from the media.
Granted, some of it is a bit confusing. When you lie or take advantage of bio accidents or terrorism, which ever this really is, you sometimes start to get a little confused trying to push an agenda when you shouldn’t. This is a time when people just need plain “truthful” facts. We don’t care about Bad Orange Man or how some hold our country hostage to further a private agenda they cooked up for their campaign donors. We need to know how to realistically stop this and get on with our lives again.
If this really is a forced introduction to socialism, the evil fools behind it are going to be in for a real shock when they see how many of us will refuse to give up our freedoms in return for a pretense of protection from those who don’t give a damn about the lives of the majority.
Elitism has no place in America. It will not be tolerated. This timing of a global “lockdown” of historical proportions is just too convenient. A small faction of global elitists have long been accused of preparing our countries for their socialist agenda but we are going to have to decline their “gunpoint” invitation as awesome as that sounds.
So, just do what you can do for now.
Stay home, do not have personal contact with anyone. Not even that friendly neighborhood hooker you used to visit. (wink)
Better yet, stand in the corner, if you voted for Trump. (wink) joshing.
Wash your hands.
Wash your hands after wiping yourself.
Hell, jump in the shower for a change because from the current media narrative, some of you are downright nasty!
Shop during safe times if they have that near you.
Wear a damn mask, or use a scarf, please. It does cut down on the spittle flying thru the air.
DON’T bring your young children shopping with you for now if you can afford not to. It’s not safe for them.
When you come home after being in a den of cooties, working, shopping, whatever, you should always leave your shoes at the door if you don’t already do this. Take your outside clothing off at the door to hang out for a while or throw in the laundry. Then jump in the shower and completely scrub off. Lather, rinse, repeat for some of you that need maps for everything.
Leave non perishables somewhere to allow virus die off or wipe stuff down before adding to the pantry. Some people do this all the time.
Just “think” before you do things now. I won’t say “don’t touch your face” because that’s a habit we all have somewhat so just be clean.
Regularly wipe down areas that are touched, light switches, doorknobs, etc.
If you can’t find antibacterial, use soap & water. It will remove most germs.
Please don’t try to concoct your own antibacterial stuff unless you really know what you’re doing. Don’t take other’s odd or unproven “tips” for these cleaners as gospel either.
Don’t open the door to strangers during this time especially.
Don’t be scammed by calls or any contact regarding stimulus payments or other types of help.
Just be careful, pray and keep yourself alive.
Oh…who am I kidding….most are brainwashed, weak, can’t find their ass without a map and take the path of least resistance. We’re fcked!
