Back in the eighties I was in a small way part of a blockbuster called “road warrior beyond thunderdome” One of the most famous scenes in the movie is where Edwin Hodgeman’s character gives his speech about how they settle disputes in barter town ,the thunder dome “two men enter one man leaves and the crowd gets louder chanting “two men enter one man leaves, two men enter one man leaves” then at the crescendo Edwin’s character” dr dealgood” in a most sinister voice says “ladies and gentlemen boys and girls IT’S DYING TIME”
Well it seems senator Tillis really likes this principle, he it seems in a recent interview said “the law regarding restaurant workers having to wash their hands after toileting is big brother” yes folks and when asked to defend it he said businesses should be free to wash or not wash enforce or not and when the subject of infection and salmonella and germs he said” but then the toughest would survive” when further pushed he said “the ones that don’t might not survive and the best will rise to the top”
Wow senator we had that system before, it was called the “great plague” in the dark ages of Europe, two thirds of the world’s population died. Again when white man invaded the Americas, the syphilis carrying scurvy ridden sailors spread everything from the clap to the common cold and wiped out more than ten million native Americans in just a few generations then we sent the army to mop up.
We the people actually elected this fool, so we only have ourselves to blame. Oh and the media for repeating his lunacy. In Scotland back in the 1600’s there was a similar belief and the plague became so bad they sent the infected to the basements and under world of the city, and then bricked it off. Hundreds still worked and lived and schooled until they couldn’t, and the survivors simply built a new city on top.
Today when you visit the city they give tourist tours of the underworld like a macabre universal studios tour.
What has happened to our world especially the republicans amongst us? This one says let’s have an immunological thunderdome, let the fittest survive. Then we have rand Paul saying HIV doesn’t cause aids and of course his father saying if the uninsured are brought by ambulance to an ER they should be left to die?
We have southern republicans saying they want grades of rape established, so we can assess whether rape is real or not.
Two years ago another republican said “the female body has systems and it knows when a pregnancy is from rape and self -aborts”, and he also sponsored a law in the house that rapists who caused pregnancy should have parental rights and the children should be forced to visit them in prison?
All the above republicans also all scream they are Christians? Speaking of Christian a 4th grader in Texas this week was suspended because his school found out he went to the movies and saw the quote ”ungodly lord of the rings” not a Christian school, not a private school a public one paid for by your and my tax dollars.
The racist bigoted republicans say a black president is the worst thing that ever happened to this country but far from it, barrack Obama did us a favor. Before you storm the bastille let me explain, because he caused every single bigoted moronic uneducated KKK flag waving politician on both sides to come into the light.
We the people by its etymology, stands for ever mothers son and daughter born in the land of the free and the home of the brave or has come here and called it home. So with that in mind, black, white, Asian, gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, disabled, illegal or legal are human and therefore deserve basic decent human rights in all they do from all in power they meet no matter what.
If you don’t like it, throw a sheet over lady liberty break the scales of justice and get back on the mayflower, because to you who would have it any other way than the land of the free you have no place being here because every soldier who ever fought and died in every war since the mayflower landed died so that those who live may have the very rights they fled religious oppression in Europe to receive.
