You are the one presuming tyranny, not me and your progression is regression.
Ummm to ensure a healthy citizenry? Is that mentally and emotionally healthy? For lockdown isn't ensuring that and lack of Sunshine ain't good for physical health either.
I went to O'Hare yesterday, the busiest airport on the planet... it was empty.
I went to the public park today... it was empty (on a Saturday).

Depression is a terrible thing to live through. Dr. Fauci is finally starting to admit that...

The general welfare of the nation; that doesn't mean healthcare, it was not written about health care, it was written about the economy. The general welfare means how everyone is doing in general, it means we are living good, if our welfare is hurting, we donate welfare to those who are hurting. Welfare is not health care, it is money or goods... that could include paying for the doctor visit, but welfare has nothing to do with catching a virus, it means to be doing well financially. The government was set up to insure financial well being and secure the blessings of liberty.
 
that's kind of it....
I would have stated it a little differently;
something more like, it is my opinion of the constitution as it applies to the republic today... so, very much inside the law; aka the rule of law.

Did you know that your ownership of your house is actually a legal opinion of the records held at County? The records themselves are not in and of themselves proof of ownership, ownership actually lies in a professional legal opinion of the records. The constitution is like that. The actual text on paper is not the law of the land, constitutional law is the judicial opinion (interpretation) of the text. That's why lawyers refer to the Supreme Court rulings when they are stating the law. So, the big idea is that it is a living constitution, because it is the ongoing opinion of the Supreme Court that becomes law.

So, in the main, I agree with your point, because I care not for the original intent of the first Amendment (seduce the French people to change their allegiance from the crown to the republic) (and that was the original intent of the writing; remember who wrote it, Robes Pierre's committee wrote it, we just copied it) ... I only care how the amendment is applied to our republic today. And it is my opinion that this current tyrannical law being spouted from my Governor is stepping all over the first Amendment, as it applies to our state law today.
This is why I think you are a unique poster. You think for yourself. While I am not that crazy about your religious posts, you always take posting seriously and have done so for ages. I go back and forth, I simply cannot resist being a jerk every now and then. You remain a constant and that is why I will always like you Days.

you got a friend in me, Wooley. We have a kindred spirit, we understand that economics is just the study of how you live your life and how you spend your energy. I remember run75441 (remember him) always chided me because I can't get the numbers right; he was an advisor to Chinese industry; he always got the numbers right. My son is dyslexic, so is my wife, my bosses, no one gives me the numbers right, how am I supposed to get them right? But I understand the designs, the wonder of it all, and I keep trying to fix it, I keep trying to heal it, I don't really care about the first Amendment, I don't even care if they lock me in my home forever; I'm old now, my walks don't always make it across the street to the park, most times, I just make it to our 2 little ponds, talk with the ducks and the geese... damn those geese are ornery.

where was I? I get lost talking to myself. what are thoughts? Are those like spirits swimming through your mind? Some of us are like the train station at Novi, Michigan... not much there, it was the number 6 stop on the Grand Plank road to Lansing... in Roman numerals, there was a sign at the train stop NoVI ... yeah they named the stupid town after the sign, not much traffic there. Not my mind, my mind is like Grand Central station in NYC or Union Station in Chicago, so many damn voices in my head, I gotta tell 'em all to shut up so I can think... or is that what happens when you think too much? heh

I'm not religious Wooley, I hate religion. I don't go to church, I am the church. Hell, I am the 2nd coming... at least, that spirit is in my head too.


You know, I'm damaged. Not from war, but from society. Things in my head don't always work correctly. I short circuit. burn up. I'm trying to heal that. But I know it will never completely heal. But life is not about the destination, it is about the journey. At the same time, why spend your whole life headed for nowhere? I want to heal the money... I want to heal our lives... I want to heal what is killing our hearts... and what is killing our hearts? Why are we afraid to say "I love you" right out loud? I know why I'm afraid, I have a super jealous wife. I try to hide her from the fray... she is on facebook; she tells me what is happening in the world; I call her Miss Information.

heh, this post did not get lost, it wasn't headed any where to begin with. :)

I was listening to these 2 singing in the background...

Pictures of the orchids would be nice, growing them successfully is quite the accomplishment.
Ps I don't think that orchid growing is as difficult as it may have been in the past. I am only growing cool and intermediate orchids in my home ( fragrant ones) - no hot house ones. If you are interested I can recommend three good youtubers - Danielle's Orchid Ranch, Rich L ( his illness seems to have got the better of him sadly but he has left us with a lot of knowledge) and Orchid Whisperer. There are others but they are my favs.

Just start with one and go for it xxx

Though constitutionally you have always had freedom of speech, in theory, I know that it was not always so, in practice, for public opinion and or even the gun all through the Vietnam years dictated what people could and could not safely say. That I know from personal experience and yet; in 1968-69 while that war was still raging 100 thousand people in the US died of a flu ( Hong Kong flu it was named). Nothing was closed down and no-one was told to shut up about it, the flu, and 400 thousand people gathered in one place for WoodStock.

What I mean to say is that you are being romantic about your Constitution for by my own observations your freedoms exist only where the true powers that be allow them to exist and disappear where said powers wish them to die. Be it war, economic manipulation and or now sickness that those powers deem their profits to be, Planned ingrained ignorance ( via education) means that those who are aware of the importance of them must say goodbye to all freedoms or be damned one way or another.

Not only in America though Days, if Rick thinks that he can take off and travel the world freely he is in for a shock, The whole of the so called free world is in lockdown. The Islamic world is not and two African countries have rejected it too but then this is not about government this is by the dictate of the true powers that be ----- So who are these powers who can now dictate that the whole world must stay shut up in their homes in the Springtime? That is the question for until we can see plainly who the enemy is we have no hope of fighting them.
Howdy QT! My point, in doing the nomadic thing upon retirement, is that the “tether” to the USA is largely broken for me. Anti-liberty busybodies and control freaks have effectively rendered America alsoran.

Oh, and traveling as I do and have for the past 30 years, I have a pretty good grasp of where I can freely roam. Should be fun. :)

Still a few years out though - my youngest is just a sophomore in HS.

'Alsoran' lol I have to look up some of your words.

My father used to do that in his diatribes - 'what did you say (mean)?'

Good word though :)

I know that you know the world but fings are a changing all over :(

Yep. The world always changes - and usually not for the better. Many countries seek retirement/expat dollars though. Geeze, the last time I was in the south of Portugal you’d swear you were in England. So it is with much of the south Mediterranean coast of Spain. Don’t get me started on SE Asia, Belize, etc. There are still many options so long as one can prove financial means.

At any rate, it was less about actual retirement plans than it was about my disgust for where we’re headed. It would be far more tolerable if so many of my fellow rank and file citizens weren’t enthusiastically PARTICIPATING in our own demise.

I feel exactly the same about England, darling.
