That ‘liberty thing’

It’s Day 389 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve. Deb and I are just fine.

Jim Jordan, representing Ohio in Congress, is a passionate defender of true American values, and yesterday he lowered a righteous boom on Fauci. He demanded that Doctor Doom provide specific answers to how and why “15 days to slow the spread turned into one year of lost Liberty.”

The response he got?

“I don’t look at this as a liberty thing,”

That might be the most breathtakingly un-American response I’ve heard since Tucker Carlson asked ‘Jersey’s governor how his authoritarianism squared with the Constitution:

“That’s above my pay grade, Tucker. I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this.”

And who could forget Daffy’s gem from the 2020 campaign?

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men and women created by, you know, the thing.”

This is what we get when Democrats and other progressives occupy positions of power — the Constitution becomes an afterthought, the principles they’ve sworn an oath to uphold a “thing.” They can’t even bring themselves to speak the words.

Doctor Doom’s salary is the highest in the federal government. He’s paid handsomely to apply medical “expertise” to the position he holds — but, like every other government official, whether a bureaucrat or elected by the People, he must place Liberty above all else.

That is, everything must be “a liberty thing.”

Anyone in American government who doesn’t put Liberty first, who assigns primacy to illusions like “safety” or “public health,” dishonors our country and the People they presume to serve.

Jim Jordan knows that. It’s time you did, too.

We farmed out a couple of our repairs today, delegating to a guy who works on RVs almost every day. The same mobile tech who got Ernie’s fridge and front furnace running back in December returned to address a bit of water showing up where it shouldn’t be.

The big benefit, if you ask me, was him going over the entire roof and sealing a few areas that weren’t problems yet, but which could’ve been down the road. He found potential issues I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t’ve spotted.

Better yet, we caught everything before any damage was done.

And the screens for the furnace exhausts arrived in today’s mail. Designed for this specific application, they were quite a snug fit. Now we’re wasp-proofed.

Here comes the weekend. The beat goes on, with much still to do. And life is very, very good.

Take care of yourselves, Patriots. Stay calm. Stay sharp. Stay free.
