A Righteous Rant From Germantown’s Marc King (At the One Year Anniversary of the MoCo Conservative Blog!)
By Marc King
As the past several weeks have gone by, I find myself more irritable than usual. Everything seems to be a bit off and my wife has even asked me: “Why are you being so short about things”?
Well I have given it some serious thought and here is what I have concluded — I’m not “testy” — I am flat out ANGRY about the way things have been going in this country and I suspect that they will not be getting better any time soon. I also suspect that what is making me angry is also making a lot of other American angry — so just what is driving these feelings.
I would start with the loss of the First Amendment of the Constitution.
It takes an enormous amount of “CHUTZPAH” (Oxford Languages Dictionary defines as “extreme self-confidence or audacity and in this example it is audacity) for Jen Psaki to stand on the platform of the White House Briefing Room and inform the American people that if you have an opinion that is different than Joe Biden’s it should labeled “misinformation” and you should be banned from the social media platform that your speech was posted on. For that matter, you should be banned from all social media.
Now, I was taught in 9th grade civics that if the people want to change the Constitution, we do that by amending it. Study.Com tells us the Constitution’s Article V lays out the process by which the Constitution may be amended. There are actually four different ways, but only one is widely used … so let’s just focus on that: “Proposal by Congress, with ratification by the state legislatures. This method was used for all current amendments except one.”
The Constitution that the current Executive branch is degrading, is the very same Constitution that I swore an oath to protect and defend on December 6, 1966. So when I hear Ms. Psaki speak in the manner she does, it really ticks me off.
I’m angry that we cannot have faith in the election just held months ago because we cannot be allowed to know what took place in the Socialist Democrat strong holds across the country. And believe me, something was very, very, wrong. There seems to be enough smoke to generate a fire, but those who are in charge have steadfastly refused to allow a full investigation to take place! Why is that? Information is leaked out every day that diminishes our belief in an election process that is fair and transparent. Politicians could bring forth information that can deny or confirm the numerous irregularities that seem to be there, and yet they will not. What are they hiding? Their behavior ticks me off!
No one seems to know where they are going or how they will be supported when they get there, and still they come. Is this enough to make you angry? No?! If not, why not? Their arrival here is illegal. Their arrival is a clear violation of our statues regarding immigration. What is more, we know for a fact that helpless children are being trafficked and sexually abused along the way. Therefore it must be concluded that any use of the military and its assets to harbor or support the movement of those breaking the law, and those being victimized by the lawbreakers, has now turned those in the military into lawbreakers themselves. The Uniform Code of Military Justice, the UCMJ is clear on this matter — lawful orders must be obeyed. However, when the base commander orders his airmen and woman that they cannot communicate what they are seeing take place under the cover of darkness on the airbase, that is not a lawful order! A member of the US military cannot be ordered to break the law intentionally and knowingly! So when this occurs, and it is occurring, it really gets my dander up!
Black lives matter… they really do… except in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington DC and New York! Every weekend it’s the same report — young people, innocent bystanders are being gunned down in the streets of their cities and no one seems to give a hoot. Blame the gun — not the gunmen — it really pisses me off!
I’m angry about the uneven application of the law! For example, in Portland and Seattle, if you begin to burn down a federal Courthouse and injure those inside protecting it, you walk free in 24 hours. But if you walk around the Capitol, you are considered an insurrectionist and you’re given an 8 month prison sentence. Many who committed no crimes have been locked up for 8 months, pre-trial! Loot, burn and destroy property — no problem! You earned it! Firebomb police cars, even if you are a sworn Officer of the Court, and nothing happens! Nor does anything happen, of real consequence, when you are the Governor of New York and are accused by multiple women of sexual harassment. In fact, you can kill helpless old folks in nursing homes, with COVID, and nothing happens! Oh… wait… something does happen: You make a book deal for millions and the people you executed are still dead. Why wouldn’t I be angry?
The next generation of military leaders at West Point are being taught that the color of your skin matters… so maybe the person you need to rely on will not be so reliable. I never saw racial discrimination in the foxhole when the bullets were flying. It seems that we were all of the same mind then, as we should be now, but we are not. That ticks me off.
Then there is China and Russia — and they really tick me off. The fact that we are seriously compromised by the Biden Crime Family — Hunter Biden’s Laptop tells the tale — both of these international rivals have their hand in Biden’s back pocket, and at least 50% of the country does not care. Why is that? That really ticks me off.
I am paying more for my gasoline; and that seriously ticks me off. Food is costing more, for no good or justifiable reason, just bad economic policy, so why shouldn’t Americans be angry? I certainly am. Because of Biden’s inflationary policy, the money I worked hard to save for my “Golden Years” is being eroded away. My family is forced to make choices that Americans should not have to make, like seeking out private schools when we pay taxes to support the public school system. That ticks me off. Taxes are going up and services are coming down. We are turning into a nation of “good enough” rather than a nation that is proud of what it achieves. Socialism and Communism look good to way too many people in this country! That really, really, really, ticks me off.
They are trying to, and in many ways, they are, wearing us down – and that My Fellow Americans — is why I am not just ticked off; that is why I’m ANGRY!
