Start Your Own Country, Elsewhere

To extremists, you need to depart our shores.

As they have already amply exhibited, the Left wishes to fundamentally remake America, rewrite history, pack the Supreme Court, tear down statues, defund police departments, diminish the military, abolish the Electoral College, and cram CRT down students’ throats. 

Down With Extremists

Those in the middle and on the Right do not agree with what the Left seeks or espouses. Why do we, merely ordinary citizens, grapple with what a deranged fringe of our society believes is vital? We are Americans. 

We accept that the history of America was not fair for everyone. Some people experienced grave injustice, as have some to this day. We also acknowledge that in the annals of world history, for most people, most of the time what has transpired in America has been more beneficial than what has occurred everywhere else.

We accept our history, and what is transpiring in the present. Many of us wrestle with ways in which society can be more fair and inclusive. We don’t need extremists who ‘know’ exactly how America ought to be reshaped and are eager to jam their dogma and extremism down our throats. 

Leave Quietly, but Do Leave

To extremists, you need to depart our shores. No kidding. If you are that upset with the deal you have in America, find another country. No one is stopping you from leaving. Pool your resources and buy a section of Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, someplace else in South America, or Eastern Europe. 

Leave as soon as you can, because you are never going to find solace here. Multi-millions of others feel like we do. Your ideas are not widely popular even if the complicit press makes it seem so. Your ‘governance’ is not conducive to a democracy, a representative democracy, or a republic. You trade in manipulation, intimidation, and violence. You justify your behavior, believing you have a sacrosanct right to impose your will on others. You are no better than any of the dictators or fascists in history.

We are never going to relent to your demands. We are never going to embrace your twisted version of America. We are never going to concede to your attempted regime of oppressive political correctness. 

We are never going to respect anybody who wears a ski mask to do his business downtown after dark with the most vulnerable people they can find. We are never going to raise our fists in salute to your sordid organizations.

You’ll Raise The Funds 

In your quest to start another country, many donors will be available. The 280+ companies who’ve already knuckled under to Black Lives Matter, and the financiers of Antifa, such as George Soros (and his hundreds of organizations intentionally named to sound like the opposite of what they actually seek) can offer start-up funding. 

You can apply to the World Bank. You can appeal to the United Nations. You can undertake all of the activities of a developing country.

Do so, because you will not succeed here. Most of the 332 million people you fervently wish to rule will not put up with the half million of you, if there are that many, who seek to tear down our nation. You will lose, if you keep at this, in untold ways. 

Your New Country Will Face Perils       

In forming your own country, you will face immediate perils. Your own ‘woke’ people will rebel as you restrict free speech and seek to enforce language that follows narrow codes based on what you demand. You do not believe in the rule of law; you resort to mob rule. You rely on slogans, hysteria, and impulsive behavior to get things done. 

As such, your country will fail within three or four years, but you’re welcome to experience that for yourselves. Your venture will be a footnote in history as so many other groups have been relegated. However, you are free to try.

Nations don’t form easily, and keeping them intact for hundreds of years is no small feat. We’ve got a good thing going in the United States for the vast majority of our citizens and they know it. You are not going to undo what they have.

Southwest Caves to Pressure from Anti-Vaccine Employees

But there’s one heck of a catch.

Published

on

Last weekend was an unfortunate one for Southwest Airlines, who suffered from the cancelation of nearly a third of their flight schedule…and just days after they announced that a vaccine mandate would soon go into effect for their thousands of employees.

The airlines denied that the vaccine mandate had anything to do with the cancelations, blaming weather and air traffic control issues.  But, when researchers compared the number of total flights cancelled to the number of Southwest flights cancelled, it was fairly obvious that this was a localized issue.

Only a few days after that, a massive protest of their vaccine mandate hit home near headquarters.

By Tuesday of this week, the airline had been forced to back down.

Southwest Airlines dropped a plan to put unvaccinated workers with pending exemptions on unpaid leave after a December 8 deadline following protests by their employees.

“The employee will continue to work, while following all COVID mask and distancing guidelines applicable to their position, until the accommodation has been processed,” according to an internal note obtained by CNBC written by Southwest’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Hospitality Steve Goldberg and Vice President and Chief People Officer Julie Weber.

And then, even after a new deadline was set, the company doesn’t appear to be baring its teeth in regard to enforcement.

The company is giving employees until November 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for a medical or religious exemptions. While these exemptions are pending, employees will continue being paid, and those who are rejected will continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation),” CNBC reported.

It was unclear exactly where the buck would ultimately stop with the new timeline, but there is little doubt that we’ll soon find out.
