What a joy it has been for us this past week. At the height of the craziness we had friends from Las Vegas come visit us. Yes, we broke all the social distancing rules! And we broke the Govenors lockdown rules, before he reluctantly lifted them.
You see, my friend Jim has prostate cancer and his wife is a quite famous Las Vegas singer/entertainer. Jim was about to start radiation treatment and like the rest of us he was cooped up and going stir crazy. After a visit with his doctor, permission was granted him to take a little break before his radiation treatment begins, and he called me to see if he and his wife could come visit us for a while.
Well, it took me about three seconds to think it through. What if I had it? What if he had it? What if he gets it on the way here? It was a thousand mile drive, surely he would meet somebody with it or touch something incubating the dreaded Corona Virus. But my thoughts were short lived. In fact, I murdered them. “Of course Jimmy,” I said, “you and Genevieve are more than welcome to come stay with us, to hell with the virus and the lockdown, you have cancer and God’s in charge!” We both laughed!
Most people will not agree with me, and many of you reading this will be angry with me for “putting others at risk.” Some, by knowing the circumstances may give me a pass, but others will likely try to shame me for my stupidity; in other words, for my lack of conformity.
Let me say what I have said before, “this virus is more about scaring people and government control than it is about real danger,” at least for most of the population. If you have a brain at all you can see in hindsight the actions we are taking against it are gravely out of proportion and are destroying the lives of thousands and the prosperity and health of millions.
I feel like I’m in a nightmare and I’m screaming “They are lying to you, and I yell louder and louder, wake up sheeple!” The Cults of State, Science, Media, and Politics, are led not by the best and the brightest, but by the followers of demons, greed, power, and lies. Yes, there are some sane and righteous voices, but the leftist, radical, elitist crowd led by the prince of this world, Satan, are drowning the rest of us out! None of these are a bit concerned for the poorest line cook or cashier who can’t make their rent or pay their bills, heck they hardly care for the old people in hospices, they only seem concerned that their deaths be labeled Covid 19. They only want Trump out and themselves in. They are certainly not sympathetic toward my buddy Jim taking a break before the greatest challenge of his life. The guy has a pacemaker and cancer for God’s sake! How does locking him down help him? How much further will their power hungry, greedy, self centered, aspirations go? And don’t give me the line that this epidemic is worse than the flu! The numbers don’t actually bear that out, yet! I’m still watching Sweden, I think they might be the winner in the end. But if I’m wrong, and I could be about some of it, it’s still true that more than half the world’s population have been scared into submission. Even my guy Trump has no way out of this, they led him down primrose street and would destroy him if he changed course suddenly. I think he has finally seen the folly of following these so called “scientists” and their fake projections. He wisely gave the responsibility back to the govenors and is letting them squirm and flail like slaughtered chickens. I fear you, not me, will face months of their lunacy, and we together will forever lose freedoms we all cannot even imagine.
I think some believe this is just a big extended holiday. The ones with big bank accounts and “work at home” orders that is. The ones who wear masks and look at you with evil eyes if you don’t. And don’t tell me working from home is more productive. Permanently free to work from home means permanently poorer in my book.
I very much fear, and somewhat hope, that millions will simply cease to obey the facist totalitarian rules which no longer make sense. Luckily, Montana has pretty much averted the pandemic and we did not have to bear arms just to eat lunch. The people here wisely disputed long ago that living in populated, drug infested, crime ridden, virus incubators, governed by liberal Democrats is a good idea. We are free in Montana, at least I am. I never felt threatened by goofy government officials. I was free (but encouraged otherwise) not to invite my friends to love on them. I chose freedom, and so did they. We laughed, sang, and prayed together. We went on hikes, ate pizza and pastries, even eventually got to drink a beer, eat out, and yes, sit down inside at our favorite restaurant. “The Big Scare” is over for us.

Our friends left us today and they have left us better people. If you are a “not at risk person,” I encourage you to invite some friends over, take a risk. CNN and the Democrat party has lost its fight with us, we know your game. Howl all you wish Don Lemon, whine all you can Nancy Pelosi, threaten and tell us we are deplorable, but we do not trust you. We trust in God, we love our neighbors, and we will not live in your fear!
P.s. Pray for my brother in Christ Jimmy and his lovely wife Genevieve, that their days ahead will be filled with joy.
