And You Wonder Why….

If I hide like this no one can see me

It pays to keep an eye on what the House Critters are up to these days, including their most recent attempts to let us know what a bunch of control freaks they are. It is gobsmacking astonishing that a piece of legislation meant to benefit the populace should include, in its text, a threat of overbearing legislation that is another of their attempts at imperialism. And yet, that is exactly what it contains. Thanks to 5th/77th’s alert, it is outlined below.


Some of that HEROES legislation money requested is earmarked for testing, tracing and isolating CV19 people.

5th/77th was correct.

From the article:  The legislation calls for the establishment of a nationwide evidence-based system for testing, contact tracing, surveillance, containment and mitigation of COVID-19, offering guidance on isolation of infected individuals and public reporting on testing, tracing and quarantine activities.

What? No consent on the part of the person under surveillance?  No referral to or contact with one’s own doctor? We’re just supposed to take their word for it?

I don’t think so! It is not as innocuous as it seems.  And remember: it’s your tax dollars going into this bit of skullduggery. Any legislation can be twisted into something bad by control freaks, as we’ve seen here so frequently and so recently.

This harks back to a program that was Hitler’s plan for getting rid of people who were handicapped in even the most negligible way, including being afflicted with the side effects of polio or having some mental disability: send them to “camp”, and then tell their families “Unfortunately, your sister/brother/child took sick and died.”

On the surface, it does seem innocuous enough, but some people might be better off at home than in a hospital.

But this approach is overbearing and uncalled for. Politicians should be the first to be put on that list.

When the news reports more than once that two people who’d never been sick were suddenly deathly ill and died within an hour of each other and no relative is allowed to see them even through a barrier like a window, it is suspicious. Very suspicious. And one can become more and more suspicious as time goes by.

It’s even more suspicious when the news media report that so far, only four states have not re-opened anything at all.

Question everything – all of it – including the need to divulge daily statistics on how many new deaths have occurred.  After all, this bug originally occurred in bats, and with the weather returning to something approaching normal, our own bats should be out and about. So where are they? Oh, that’s right: they only come out at night, kind of like some other critters we know.

Do not go gentle into that den of iniquity!  Question everything, and rage against the dying of your rights.

    Good thing my Senators will never put up with legislation like that.

    Cardin and Van Hollen.

    Never mind.

    I recall that the Soviet Union had a habit of placing people in mental hospitals. The patients I read about had the condition “Idontlikethegovernment”.

    Cause, reasons.

    Fuck the Fourth Amendment, right?

    We are all just Fedex packages being tracked until “delivered”.

    “Politicians should be the first to be put on that list.”
    First and always. But then it might be more widely known how they seem to feel entitled to exempt themselves from the rules that apply to us little people. How many of them and their families get to ignore the isolation and travel restriction?

    Tanks Ex. When I FIRST saw this article the other day I had a real WTF moment. And an YGBSM one too. I know that there are people here that think that I see an evil gubmint conspiracy behind every news story. Well this linky proves the old adage that even the blind dog finds a bone now and again. Nearly 1900 pages of giving away taxpayer money, with the same caveat as the ACA…We have to pass it to see what’s in it. More proof that most of the elected officials in this country will destroy it to maintain their power. A safe from Senate passage? Bull cookies!!!! Those sons of bitches are just as crooked as the House SoBs, and will sell out in a heartbeat. They have had nearly four years to get something done, 2 years of which they were a majority party and didn’t do a damn thing. Some of the rinos died off and others quit at the last minute, probably thinking that when the SHTF they would get splattered too. I don’t trust none of them.

    Take a quick look see at the newly appointed Senator from the Peach State. Miss Rich Bitch from Indiana, (not that there is anything wrong with Indiana) claiming to be a big time conservative, grew up on the farm, worked her way thru school, ad nauseum. Family farm was a huge corporate affair,a few token candy stripper type pics. She’s a multi millionaire that married another multimillion (owns seats on the NYSE) owns a professional basketball team, has given money to the Stacey Abrams’ groups and was NOT Trump’s choice to get the seat. Odd that she got the seat just a few days after she arranged with the guv to donate 750Gs to the Super Pac. Now she is running ads with Trump photo shopped into the pics. And she’s only been in DC for 4 months. Further proof that these SOBs will do anything to maintain that grip.

    Connect the dots and follow the money, and remember this…The federal gubmint allowed a known murderer to not only avoid a very lengthy jail sentence, but to also make a run for president, and not only keep his Senate seat, but to be “Lionized” by his peers. That in itself should speak volumes. VOTE!!!! MAKE YOUR NEIGHBOR VOTE!!!!

    Eternal Vigilance!!! #Resist…#Revolt…#Rebel

    Consent has literally never been part of isolation, containment, and quarantine provisions during any time in the history of the United States.

    It is literally a foundational part of the social contract that you can lose some rights if you are a danger to others.

    The first major quarantine in the US was in 1793. George Washington was President. Though the epidemic was only in Philadelphia at the tine so it was regarded as a state matter, not a federal matter.

    The first federally mandated quarantine was during the 1918-1919 Spanish flu pandemic. And people could be, and sometimes were, shot for violating it.

    Also, you are misusing the word “imperial”.

    In politics it is used two ways;

    “imperial” in regards to an “empire”. Nothing about these Containment measures has anything to do with US imperialism.

    Or “imperial authority” as in aN “imperial administration” which refers to unifying the administration of the military, economy, society, trade, and criminal justice under one executive authority.

    One body of congress passing quarantine and containment measures, that still needs to be based by the Senate, and then signed into law by the president, and then implemented by the administration is not “imperial administration”.

    • David says:

      The pejorative thrust of the term ‘imperial’ is of an overwhelmingly centralized government able to impose almost anything by simple fiat. Whether a single royal figure is at its head or a few, the capability and willingness of the central authority toward arbitrary action amply earns the term. See the cliche about “if it looks like a duck etc.”

    • ArmyATC says:

      “Quarantining the healthy and uninfected has literally never been part of isolation, containment, and quarantine provisions during any time in the history of the United States.”

      There. Fixed it for you. And you overstate the “quarantine” of Philidelphia.

      Bzzt. Wrong. Try again. Unless you have some warped sense of consent. I suggest you read Pox Americana by Dr. Fenn.
