The spirit of American rebellion still lives, and is beginning to awaken at last.
Clearly, the greatest public- heath threat imaginable…a kid on a skateboard. Young people, remember, this is what Big-government statist Democrats do—they take away your freedom. https://t.co/VBCmnZRvfC

Now get a load of what happened next. Trust me, it’ll warm the cockles of even the most cynical heart.
It may not seem like all that much…yet. But it will be small, seemingly insignificant acts of defiance like this that will snowball into full-on revolt—which is something America has never in its history needed more desperately than it does right now.
Update! Washington state insurrection.
Washington Governor Jay Inslee’s draconian executive orders mandating business closures and stay-at-home status for all residents has been rejected by county commissioners in Franklin County. The motion passed unanimously. Now, the legal battles may or may not begin but in the immediate future, the county is official reopened for business.
“I move that Franklin County end recognition of the governor’s stay at home emergency proclamation that is now deemed unconstitutional. We support the reopening for all builders and small businesses that want to work,” Commissioner Clint Didier said during a meeting Tuesday morning.
This opens the door for other counties and cities to oppose the order based on RCW 43.06.220(4), which limits the governor’s state-of-emergency powers to 30 days unless the state legislature passes an extension.
Well, I gotta admit I didn’t see THAT coming.
Payback time update! Cockroaches get hit with a spotlight, to their great dismay.
Talk radio great Jamie Allman filed a Sunshine law request for the actual emails of St. Louis County residents who’ve snitched on local entrepreneurs trying to make a living. Most of the complaints were unfounded, involving people “turning in” companies that were deemed essential by the county.
But reading the actual complaints reveals just how terrified the media and corrupt academics have made good people. The complainants are truly scared. They believe that Coronavirus kills almost everyone who gets infected. They believe that washing your car, hitting golf balls at a range, or playing singles tennis can spread the disease to many people.
The 900-page file of complaints is, ultimately, sad. What could be more depressing than a mother begging government officials to put her daughter out of work? Or women asking the county to shut down their fiancé’s company?
Well, about the only thing I can think of is the thought of such despicable, craven panic-ninnies getting away with diming out friends and loved ones without paying a stiff price for such perfidy. Doxx the living fuck out of every last one of these diaper-dragging ratbags; if the old “snitches get stitches” bylaw can’t be practically enforced, then public exposure, scorn, and humiliation is the very least they have coming to ’em.
“Well, I gotta admit I didn’t see THAT coming.”
Outside of Seattle I believe Washington State is fairly conservative.
“snitches get snitches”
I think that is “snitches get stitches” 🙂 At least that’s how we always looked at it.

My State: 265.
Adjusting for Congregate Living? Even better odds.
Adjusting by County: Even better odds.
But hey., let’s PANIC
“My State: 265.”
Clearly we need to completely lock down everyone in your state.
Another 4.4 Million people jobless this week. Brings us to over 26 Million people out of work in 5 weeks.
5+ Million per week average.
Oil down to 17/bbl.
REOPEN FASTER, PLEASE.
No problem I’m told. Our economy is so resilient we can just close it for 6 months to a year and we’ll all be fine. Or after the election. The real goal, which is clear as hell to any person using their brain for anything but trembling before the killer virus.
