THE VERY DEFINITION OF TYRANNY
Shelley Luther, the Dallas hair salon owner who reopened her salon despite a shutdown order from Democratic county judge Clay Jenkins, was fined $7000 and sentenced to a week in jail for ripping up a cease-and-desist order and defying a temporary restraining order. (I’ll just make note in passing that across America, Democrat officials are letting real criminals out of jail because they might catch the virus there, and putting citizens who just want to work into jail where they might catch the virus because they didn’t do enough to keep from catching the virus. This is liberal logic in a nutshell, with the emphasis, as always, on “nut.”)
Luther argued that her salon was on the verge of bankruptcy, she had to make money to feed her kids and keep her home, and she was about to have to fire all her stylists. She also pointed out that she was following stricter safety guidelines than stores like Walmart that were allowed to stay open, and that hair salons are experts in maintaining sanitary conditions.

IMPORTANT SUPREME COURT NEWS
For anyone longing for a return to those wonderful days of the Obama Administration, when there was no divisiveness, no vicious assaults on people the President disagreed with, yadda yadda yadda, here’s a reminder of what it was really like:
Today, the Little Sisters of the Poor will once again be at the Supreme Court to defend themselves from being forced by Obamacare rules to pay for contraceptives and abortion drugs for employees.
This is an order of nuns that eschews all worldly goods to devote themselves to caring for terminally ill indigent patients. Yet they’ve been bullied, threatened and hauled into federal court repeatedly in an effort to force them to violate their sacred belief in protecting life by bending to the Obama Administration’s radical pro-abortion agenda. This religious persecution has dragged on for years as they’ve won in courts. The Trump Administration gave them a religious exemption. Now, they’re fighting a challenge to that exemption by the abortion lobby, which ludicrously argues that it would be a dangerous assault on women’s reproductive rights not to force nuns to pay for abortion drugs.
Let’s all hope and pray that the SCOTUS doesn’t give us one of those vague rulings that sends the case back for further consideration, but instead stands up once and for all to reassert that the First Amendment means what it says, and that they send the people who are trying to destroy it running out of the courtroom with their tails between their legs.
STOP GIVING THEM YOUR MONEY
Teen Vogue used to be filled with fashion tips and other items of interest to teens and 'tweens. Then it became a leftist indoctrination magazine, pushing issues like abortion rights and kinky sex. And now, it’s come right out and is openly promoting socialism to your kids. As the article on the link makes clear, they don’t even seem to understand how socialism works themselves (which is understandable because it doesn’t work, so any attempts to explain how it works are as doomed to fail as socialism is.) So I guess my question to any parents whose kids read this garbage would be, “Why are you letting your kids read this garbage?”
Look at it this way: by canceling your subscription or banning your kids from buying Teen Vogue, you are helping save them from the capitalist accumulation of wealth that they decry in their magazine. Really, you’d be doing them a favor by not corrupting them by giving them your money.
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE IT ALL WRONG
Believe it or not, this is what Chicago’s ultra-leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot said about people who dared to violate her coronavirus crackdown rules by holding parties in their homes:
“I’ve directed Superintendent Brown to order all police districts to give special attention to these parties and this is how it’s going to be. We will shut you down. We will cite you and if we need to, we will arrest you and we take you to jail. Period. There should be nothing ambiguous about that. Don’t make us treat you like a criminal. But if you act like a criminal and you violate the law, and you refuse to do what’s necessary to save lives in the city in the middle of a pandemic, we will take you to jail. Period.”
And here’s how Democratic officials are dealing with actual criminals during the coronavirus panic: by releasing them to prey on the public, like the one who was rearrested three times in one day, and let go again each time (we wouldn’t want the poor little dear to go to jail and get sick.)
On the plus side, we’ve finally found a way to make Democratic politicians talk tough on crime. Unfortunately, the people they’re threatening with jail aren’t actual criminals, but at least it’s a start.
MICHELLE OBAMA DOES HAVE A POINT
Michelle Obama complained that Donald Trump was elected and that Republicans won Congress during her husband’s tenure because “their people” (women, young people) didn’t show up at the polls to vote.
Putting aside the rather arrogant assumption that certain groups like women and young voters “belong” to the left (I know many intelligent, accomplished women and sharp young people who happily voted for Trump or to kick Nancy Pelosi out of the Speakership), she does have a point.
Did you know that there are enough Christians in America (nearly 74% of the population) that if they all showed up at the polls and voted to elect people who would defend life and protect religious liberty, they could own the entire government? That if they had all just turned out and voted when Obama was running, there never would have been the all-out assault on religious expression in public, the massive funding of Planned Parenthood, and the government violations of religious freedom, with atrocities like suing the Little Sisters of the Poor to force them to pay for contraceptives and abortion drugs?
So yes, I’ll say it: Take the advice of Michelle Obama and show up to vote! (Except I’m talking to the Christians.) You have it in your power to ensure that the policies of the Obamas never return again!
