There’s a couple of things I need to address up front. And before I do, I want to say, also right up front, that I’m not angry or upset, because I think it’s a legitimate question after what I said in my last issue … episode … ezine. I just now received a message in the comments from one of our dear campers and a long time reader and it goes like this:
quick question dragon, if “your” president “mandates” i be vaxxed, are you gonna be one of the enforcers? just because he says so.
Okay, I’ll admit it … at first it pissed me off. Right from the start. “Your” president. That dementia-filled sack of crap may be my boss, but he is not “my president”. Then I thought … okay, Impish. Don’t take it personally, remember what you put in your last opening statement. You did imply …
Yeah, okay, okay inner voice, shut the fuck up.
Anyway, on to the meat of the question. And you have to understand that this is completely a hypothetical answer. If the president were to mandate that everyone gets the “vaccine” (and I hesitate to call it a vaccine, cause it really isn’t, but that is a different conversation) and then tried to use the military to enforce that mandate, and found a way around Posse Comitatus through say declaring martial law, and I was somehow brought back into the military since I am currently a civilian working FOR the military and not a said member OF the military … but let’s say that ALL of those things were to fall into place… then I would say that the FIRST part of my oath of office would fall into place, which was defending the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC and I would say at that point in time we would have a real domestic issue on our hands.
And I think that’s all the answer I can give in a public forum. And I hope that answers your question.
So let’s move on to the next thing … and this really did piss me off. And actually requires …
Apparently, you no longer need to know how to read, write, or do arithmetic in order to graduate High School! At least in the state of Oregon. The Governor signed a bill back in July that says that it is unfair to those students unable to read, write, or do math. Foundations for a Better Oregon said in a statement that the bill is intended to “truly reflect what every student needs to thrive in the 21st century.”
They don’t need to know how to read, write, or do math?
Oh my gawd!
But wait! There’s more!
They also said that this bill will help the state’s “Black, Latino, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”
So, what you’re saying is that these students are too stupid to learn the minimum requirements so we are going to do is lower the bar, rather than raise these students up? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????
But wait! There’s more!
They insist that considering math and reading essential skills has been an unfair challenge for students who do not test well.
WELL NO SHIT! That’s why they call it a test!!! If you can’t pass the test, you don’t get to graduate! You don’t dumb down the test!!! I sure as hell don’t want a graduate of THAT school system flying my plane or even giving me change for my coffee!!!!!
How the hell is that preparing them for life!!!!! How are they expected to survive in the REAL WORLD??? Or are they only going to be prepared for the world of the democrats giving them handouts for the rest of their fucking, miserable USELESS lives?
Okay … I’ve gotten it off my chest. I’m sorry. As someone who finds math so easy (and yes, I know I’m probably in the minority with that one) and someone who thinks that reading and writing are skills that EVERYONE should have and enjoy to some degree, ESPECIALLY reading, this just annoys the SHIT out of me.
And this is just racism in it’s worst form. Let’s not lift someone up, let’s dumb the system down. “Oh please, I’m (fill in the minority of your choice here) please make things easy for me because I’m too stupid to compete in normal society.” Should have been said by NO ONE, EVER!!!!!!
This is the same state that made hard drugs legal! Okay. If anyone, anywhere deserves this, Gov. Kate Brown …
So, maybe it wasn’t quite all the way off my chest. But, now it’s time to move on to better things.
Friends are like underpants. Some crawl up your ass. Some snap under pressure. Some don’t have the strength to hold you up. Some get all twisted. Some support you. Some are your favorites. Some are cheap and just get bent out of shape. And some actually cover your ass when you need them to.
I have a list of people you missed.
I was at the mall yesterday and walked into the book store. I asked if they had Trumps new book on how to deport illegal immigrants?
The clerk said, “Get the fuck out of here and don’t come back!”
I replied, “Yes! That’s the one. Do you have it in paperback?”
“Okay, baby. Let’s go. It’s time to go collect those taxes.”
Words from a Stockbroker….Edward Jones: April 20, 2021
When asked about what to buy, the stockbroker said: “If the current government is in office much longer, canned goods, a generator, water and ammunition are your best investment.”
“Come on … and spend a dime on me …”
Most of you won’t get it, but that’s what it reminds me of.
I married my wife for her looks …
But not the ones she’s give me lately.
A married man thought he would give his wife a birthday surprise by buying her a bra.
He entered a ladies shop, rather intimidated, but the salesgirls took charge to help him. “What color?” they asked.
He settled for white. “How much does it cost?” he asked.
“Expensive, but ok,” he thought.
All that remained was the size, but he hadn’t the faintest idea. “Now sir, are they the size a pair of melons? Coconuts? Grape fruits? Oranges?”
“No,” he said, “nothing like that.”
“Come on, sir, think. There must be something your wife’s bust resembles.”
He thought long and hard and then looked up and said, “Have you ever seen a Spaniel’s ears?”
What if UFOs are just billionaires from other planets?
And I’m afraid I’ve run out of time for this issue.
I just got called into a meeting that I completely forgot about. So, I’m out until Saturday.
Love and happiness to you all.
