Remember in November, Part 1

| Opinion | June 11, 2020

The answer to the charges of systemic racism (perceived abuses by our men and women in blue against minorities and a history of racial tensions) is easy and requires no change in law or the destruction of our government systems.

As I stated in my previous posting, we cannot change the past. We can only influence the present. We cannot be held accountable for the sins of the father, only for the sins we ourselves have committed. It is the right and responsibility of “We the People” to hold our government and its institutions accountable.

First when they fail to uphold our most basic founding principles that we all are created equal, therefore are entitled to equal justice under the law. Second for government to restrain itself from interfering with both our natural law rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and our enumerated rights found in our constitution, especially the first ten amendments. Read them and be grateful. Protest and petition the government when they are not followed.

Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow Americans. The time has come to start to believe your eyes rather than what you are being told by the mainstream media and our elected leftist elite. A critical examination of the news and the responses of our leadership creates several questions which require some reflection by all of us.

We have been repeatedly warned about the dangers of COVID-19 and have been subjected to extreme restriction on our liberty, destruction of the economy and the ability to provide for ourselves based on those dangers. Why is it that we still have not seen across the entire population random testing which would provide a much better understanding of the extent of the danger? The more we learn, it seems the dangers are far less than projected. Why do most of the restrictions still exist in California?


Street protests continue over the killing of George Floyd at the hands of some rogue cops despite their arrest and proper charges being made. Justice proceeds as it must, and yet we hear cries of “No Justice, No Peace!” This has given opportunity for the anarchist and politicians among us to stoke the fires of unrest, theft, violence, and destruction. Evidence now shows the anarchy has been well organized, funded and weapons deposited in place for their use.

Why is it that churches that have 2,000 seats may only have 100 worshipers in attendance with social distancing, temperatures checked, masks required, and extensive cleaning? Failure to do so will result in fines, shutdowns, possible jail time and public criticism, threats by our elected and the press. Protestors fail to observe social distancing, are free not to wear masks, interfere with the individual rights of the rest of us, are praised by the media and government officials, and given sanction by the disease control community. Among the protestors are those who are engaging in theft and violence. All the protestor’s rights are being carefully protected while those of the faithful are not. Why is it that the institutions that continue to bring us the Ten Commandments remain severely restricted?

Why is it that our leftist-elected and protestors are calling for destruction of the police departments that protect us from those who promulgate anarchy? By the way, the police are equally outraged by what happened to Mr. Floyd.
The evidence is clear. The scope of the actions by our leftist leadership have seriously harmed our economy, reduced public safety, and trashed our First Amendments Rights. The question is why? Remember in November! Part 1.
