With all the talk of Joe Biden passing a new policy to allow the IRS to track every penny of your bank account at all times in the news, a Twitter user took to his account to remind each and every one of us just how bad the government is at everything it tries to do. Every. Single. Thing.

A user going by the handle “Dr Strangetweet” posted his epic take down of government failures on Thursday, starting with this tweet:

Here is the who thread in straight text so you don’t have to contend with Twitter’s graphics:

  • You probably think the IRS monitoring any account over $600 is about tax cheats.
  • We are not the same. But I do have to ask…
  • How can you look at all of this *waves hand at the state of the country* and still trust government?
  • This isn’t a Republican v Democrat thing. It’s not even Right vs Left.
  • It’s “look with your own eyes at how bad government is at EVERYTHING”. The one thing the government used to be good at is war.
  • After Afghanistan, it sucks at that too. I get if you’re scared about COVID. Fine.
  • Buuuut why on God’s green earth are you outsourcing your trust to the people who lie to your face every day?
  • You want to trust the experts? Okay. But look at the experts.
  • THEY’RE IN BED WITH THE GOVERNMENT.
  • When every recommendation is “more government control, less personal freedom”, at some point you gotta realize the game is rigged.
  • It’s not a coincidence that the best “health” policies are “the government needs to monitor your every movement.”
  • Come on, man. Think!
  • I know I know. When Trump didn’t want to be investigated, the rally cry was “if you didn’t do anything wrong, why not welcome the investigation?”
  • ‘ll tell you why:
  • The government will make shit up to put you away if they think it will benefit them. The FBI was in on Jan 6. It’s a fact at this point.
  • The FBI set up Randy Weaver.
  • Cops drop guns and drugs on scenes to justify shootings. DAs hide or fabricate evidence.
  • Judges like being known for being tough on crime.
  • Look up “civil forfeiture” and tell me the US government won’t just zoink money from your account because they’re not sure why you have so much.
  • Do you really think you stand a chance in court against the feds trying to get your money back?
  • LOL I have a beachside condo in Phoenix I’ll sell you cheap.
  • Hey, remember when the IRS targeted groups in 2012 then destroyed phones and computers to cover up the evidence?
  • You really think they won’t target you? This isn’t Right or Left.
  • This is 4th Amendment. This is being secure in your persons against warrantless searches.
    The IRS should have to get a warrant to access your bank account.

  • This will enable them to just do it.
  • Anyway…
  • Stop thinking the government loves you. You’re nothing more than kibble for its insatiable appetite for power.

Exactly right, folks. Government does nothing at all well. Ever. Don’t ever forget it.

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.

Senator Obliterates Dr. Fauci’s Holiday Gathering Advice

“We don’t need permission”!

Published

on

If you follow the science, and the math, it’s beginning to become clear that the coronavirus pandemic is waning.  Again.

In the days before the Delta variant became the prominent strain of COVID-19, we were just about out of this whole mess.  Venues and restaurants were opening again.  People were beginning to gather at home or with friends.  When delta arrived, the ease retracted a bit.  The masks were a little more prevalent.

But now, if you simply look at the case numbers and infection rates, it is plain to see that everything is going to be okay.

This is what Florida Senator Rick Scott believes, as evidenced by his latest comments regarding the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), dismissed suggestions that Dr. Anthony Fauci can give or take away permission for Americans to celebrate the holidays with their families, calling it “insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live.”

“We don’t need Fauci’s permission to celebrate the holidays with family. People are smart. They know how to make decisions that best protect their loved ones. It’s insane that the government thinks it can tell people how to live,” Scott said in response to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief’s recent remarks […]

Fauci had recently insinuated that gathering with people outside of your immediate home over the holidays may not be advisable, suggesting instead that people continue to socially distance from even their own family.
