Where Did "Authority" Come From?

After six months of this virus clearly demonstrating that it is no more dangerous than any other, the draconian government restrictions are not only continuing, they are being heightened to WWII level Nazi style abuse. Curfews, walking papers, mandatory masks for healthy people, trace apps on your phone, social isolation. And if you are caught out without your muzzle or after hours you will be punished by the authorities.

But why are they "the authorities"? How did they acquire authority that the rest of us don't have? What makes them so special that they can legitimately rule our lives like this?

I'm not referring to the current crop of known liars, connivers and baby kissers, I'm referring to the institution. It doesn't matter who is running it, people still refer to it as "the authorities" and act as if it's a mortal sin to disobey them.

You know how that institution was created? Some people just like you and me sat down at a table, wrote a piece of paper that said that they were "the authorities". They made the piece of paper all official and important looking, then they signed it and stamped it which made it official. Voila`, "the authorities" were born.

Then just like the Gambino family whenever it expands its territory, they went around informing everyone of their newly created "authority" which included the "authority" to take money from the community under the guise of protecting the community.

Then they hired some simple minded otherwise unemployable people to enforce their authority in case anyone questioned it, which happened a lot at first. No matter how you slice it, no matter how official and important the papers look or how intimidating the "law enforcers" are, at the end of the day, "the authorities" are just another criminal gang writ large.

No human being has any "authority" to rule another human being, ever. That's called enslavement regardless what official and important looking papers you have.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
