Holy Cow


My Bunker

September 1, 2020


Just checked out Foxnews.com. Pardon my French, but damn. Neary an article on anything COVID-related or the economy. Violence and voter fraud are the majority of the items. Oh, and a fight between two women in a jetway. With scary photos. If I had not followed the news recently, I would think that the country has gone to Hell. Oh. Right. That’s the point.

I hate I have to give to Crowdsource to help folks rebuild their businesses - sure hope Bannon’s not involved. Those who are rioting need to be held accountable. Antifa, Proud Boys - to flip Trump’s saying, there are violent people on both sides. Again to use Trump’s words “get them out of here.”


But isn’t the issue we should be focused on why people are demonstrating and addressing that underlying condition?

Not every "underlying condition" is something government can or should address. In a representative republican form of government the people, through their elected representatives determine the priorities of government. I may for example want government to build more RV campgrounds in national parks. Another citizen may want the government to provide free daycare for all preschool children. Another citizen may want the government to disband the military while his neighbor believes we aren't spending enough on defense. Another may want government to provide free medical care for all citizens. One citizen wants secure borders and another wants open borders.
