There comes the point where every person reaches their penultimate point. They can take no more, stand no more, and allow no more abuses to be heaped upon them by others. On 30 August 2021, when Speaker Pelosi (D), Speaker of the US House of Representatives, refused to show up, refused to recognize, and refused to participate in a moment of silence for the 13 service members lost in Afghanistan, my moment arrived. I am thoroughly done, and I am here to describe what that means!
- I will not edit my diet to fit a “woke culture!”
I love fried chicken, watermelon, BBQ ribs, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread. I have been eating this way my entire life; I will not change just because some dweeb is projecting their racism onto food. Food cannot and should never be labeled as “racist.” I love grits and fried eggs, with cheese and gravy, or biscuits and hashbrowns. I am a huge fan of fried okra and pork. I enjoy a bowl of hominy and honey with a bit of butter and cornbread. Bring on the food, leave the politics on the porch!
- I will not disrespect every police officer just because some person gets shot.
Is there the potential possibility that a bad police officer could have slipped in and will abuse their power? Absolutely, and it has been my displeasure to have met a couple of these abusive and detestable bastards in my time. I call them out, just like I call out those who abuse their position in any other profession. But, I am done with seeing every police officer branded as bad when a precinct somewhere else in the world makes a dumb call, makes a poor decision, or is Monday-Morning-Quarterbacked by a bunch of bureaucrats who never wore a badge. I have met too many great and good police officers to see all of them slandered by the media and the politicians for the statistical anomalies that come with a demanding job and the political misfeasance that is part of the risks in their profession.
I will add another piece of important information to this list, fail to listen to a police officer and get shot; you have no sympathy from me, EVER! A police officer demands to see your hands and has reason to believe their life is in danger; you need to listen and obey first, talk and spout stupidity later. Acting on a police officer’s demands in executing their duties is called being a responsible citizen, the first job a person has to law and order in society. As a citizen, you must listen to authority, even if you do not like that authority or disagree with that authority. Hence, it is not the police officer’s fault if you refuse to do as instructed and get shot in the process.
- Rioters, Looters, Anarchists – You Are Terrorists, and I will treat you as such!
There is no such thing as a violent protest. You are either protesting (peacefully) after having obtained the proper permits and in accordance with the laws, or you are terrorists hell-bent on destroying society. There is no middle ground, and I refuse to bend on this issue, regardless of the media’s claims! When you begin looting, burning, acting violently, this is the time to call in the military. The rules of engagement include returning violence equal to or greater than the violence shown to restore law and order: no police, military response, and open fire. Law and order is the police’s job. Terrorism is the military’s job, and those who survive receive a terrorist trial in a military tribunal.
- Consent of the Governed. Rejected!
America is a Constitutional Republic (if we can keep it). Speaker Pelosi, you have breached public peace and no longer deserve my consent to hold your title and office as Speaker of the US House of Representatives. More to the point, until you are removed from office and held accountable for treason and other crimes, you are held in contempt and do not deserve any title. Nancy, go home! My consent to be governed has been withdrawn! Take your president, the fraudulent and senile Joey and Jill, the useless Kamala, and your good buddy in the Senate Patty with you. Fly commercial; I refuse you the right to use my taxpayer-funded transportation!
- Rights, freedoms, liberties all come with obligations and responsibilities!
Your “right to free speech” comes with moral obligations, responsibilities, and you are accountable for what you say. The Supreme Court has made this clear in many a case law, and it remains incumbent upon the citizenry and the politicians to learn this lesson. Screaming nonsense is not allowed, and a “college safe place” will not protect you from a genuine ass-whooping when behavior correction is needed. Nancy, your vile and deprecating speech borders on treasonous and criminal as you have promoted violence on your political enemies, frankly that you have escaped the law is atrocious and needs rectification! That you are third in line to become president means you are held to a higher standard, and that you have failed to live to that standard reflects poorly upon yourself, your party, and this country! Well, as a citizen of this country, I reject you!
I reject the “Gang of Five” who have followed maliciously in your footsteps and prospered under your pernicious tutelage. You have poisoned enough minds and hearts during your Congressional career, and it is time for you to be held accountable for your crimes, audacity, and reprehensive behavior! You have dodged the obligations and responsibilities of your office long enough. Since you have gerrymandered your congressional district to guarantee re-election ad nauseam ad infinitum, it is time the citizens outside your community hold you accountable in front of a judge and jury.
Nancy, you sent the military to Afghanistan. You continued to send the military to Afghanistan as political decisions. You hold the blood of the slain, the sweat of the military sacrifice, and the tears of the families, and you cannot ever shake this responsibility! For you to act in such a deplorable manner is cause for removal and public shaming, at a minimum. But with your ego and arrogance, simple public shaming will not teach the lesson you need to learn. Thus, Nancy, I hope to be there in person when a judge hands down a sentence of guilty, and pronounces your punishment of community service in distinctive clothing, wearing a sandwich board declaring your crimes, and watch you pull weeds on a chain gang, scrubbing graffiti, and picking trash. Then, maybe, will the enormity of your crimes come home to you!
