When the Bill Comes Due

Liberty Relearned

Did Coca-Cola sponsor racist training? Why are racism and other forms of bigotry wrong in the broader sense? Will America under the Democrats blow right by statism and go straight to Eco-fascism? Conservative Populism and the future of the Republican Party

What the Government should stop doing now
Stop the political theater: Bring the troops back home (from D.C.). Stop putting people in the energy sector out of work. Stop keeping our kids from going to school. A few other things the government should stop.

When the Bill Comes Due
Trump's legal team will argue, among other things, that the Senate impeachment proceedings amount to an illegal trial by the legislature. You won't hear the last of this even after the impeachment. While the Democrats and the media are happy to see us squabble amongst ourselves over the size of our Covid-19 relief checks, they know that we're distracted from a lot of things in the bill that we wouldn't want.

Stop the Games
What's the Game Stop controversy all about? Does it have greater ramifications outside of the investment world? Good news (maybe) on the Covid-19 front as Johnson & Johnson gets closer to having their single-shot vaccine approved. How can President Biden manipulate people's perception of the Covid-19 crisis and how he and his fellow Democrats can call off the crisis having done virtually nothing, if and when they see fit.

Theater of the Absurd
The U.S. is still a republic, but it is now a stretch to call it a *constitutional" republic. How, when, and why did this happen? What was the likely real reason for having 25,000 troops, checkpoints, and barbed wire in the U.S. Capital for the inauguration? What can conservatives, and other non-leftists do to keep pressure on Big Tech, and our elected leaders to support freedom of speech and of association? What about the impeachment of Trump? Is it even legal? With all this talk of "re-educating" Trump supporters and other conservatives, what beliefs do they think need to be purged from us? Personal freedom! The Rule of Law, Capitalism?

Bigots Revisited
The definition of "bigot" is given and how bigotry can refer to political bigotry. The left has an odd philosophical problem, Critical Theory, the theory that undergirds most of their ideology is vindicated trough their recent actions in a way they didn't count on. The effects of tech tyranny are discussed and how it can be fought.
January 18, 2021
We'd, Jan 6 was a catastrophic day for the republic for many reasons and on many levels. There was violence at the Capitol, resulting in 4 deaths and over 50 arrests. That ended any hope that the President could remain in office by some 1877 type deal. Even worse, the Republicans lost the Senate, opening the possibility of many radical policies being implemented. Still worse, the left is exploiting this disaster to engage in an all out assault on free speech. What can we do short of civil war to keep our freedoms intact? A few ideas are presented.

January 4, 2021
2020 Year in Review.
The end of last winter saw a very questionable interpretation of the Constitution leading to the impeachment of President Trump. The spring saw the spread of a deadly new plague ans likewise fear mongering over it. The summer saw massive social unrest prompted by the George Floyd killing. The fall of course meant election season and a lot of dubious election results. This winter will see the fallout from the election but also, more hopefully the introduction of a COVID-19 vaccine. The only way to screw it up would be to introduce intersectional politics into the prioritization of its initial distribution, which is of course how some localities have chosen to manage it. 2020 may be almost over, but we're not out of trouble yet.

Fear, the great motivator.
SCOTUS has elected not to hear two critical cases that might have swayed the 2020 election results. Did they do so out of sound legal principle or out of fear? How fear of COVID 19 makes people ignore the science that should be good news for them.

Hypocrisy and Integrity.
The apparent hypocrisy of some blue state governors and mayor's is not hypocritical in their minds. Their actions are in complete integrity-- just not with the values we think. The longer we wait to stand up for our rights and the more rights we cede, the harder it will be to get them back. How meritocracies and capitalism put a lie to Cultural Marxist theory.

What now?
What will be the fallout from the 2020 election? What did the Biden voters want and is that what they will get if Biden becomes president. Biden voters looking for a collectivist utopia are probably ignorant of certain facts, particularly Socialism's failures in the 20th century and the reasons for them. Contrast that with the successes of capitalism and free markets that will be lost under socialism or GND eco-fascism.
