Could we be winning?

 Consider this, batfans.

As of today, 1/3 of all states have lifted their mask mandates. Most are R, 2 (GA, AZ) are W/T, Whig/Traitor. Even a few of the C/T (Commie/Traitor) states have been considering it.

Why?

Well, as we all know, the one year anniversary of the lockdown fast approacheth. For true Micks and even Troop, this was the worst day in US history since the Volstead Act went into force.

And pretty much had the same effect.

We also know people are getting antsy. We also know we are are all sick of looking at the same faces, no matter how much we may otherwise love them. Suicides are up, ODs are up, drug abuse is up, domestic abuse must be through the stratosphere.

Kind of like being in an Ensatzgruppe.

Yes, I know, the C/Ts cling to the idea that the worst plague in human history with a 99+% survival rate is out there mutating, trying to find new ways to keep the Deep State Dwarf gainfully employed. Too bad the scare tactics don't seem to be working any more.

If they ever did.

So I put it to you. 5 states have dropped their masks, and maybe their G-strings, in the past month and are going the route of ND. It will be 18 when AL drops theirs next month. The scare stories are all out there. The vaccine is here, but there are lots of problems from distribution (the clown car in DC is giving people new reason every day to bring back the guy who made things work) to very scary side effects to people having contracted whatever it is after being vaccinated.

What's changed from a year ago?

Could it be the voice of the people is finally being heard? Could it be even the W/Ts are even getting it? Could it be that Festung Pelosi, with yet another layer of concertina, is is quaking inside, especially after the "insurrection" that never happened?

Over at Insty, I got into it with a commenter many would remember from TOP, much esteemed by many, including some here, but not all that much by me. He was spreading not FUD, but utter despair (trying to, anyway) and went wild at the prospect it's the clown car and not the Deplorables that's in trouble, scared and flailing wildly.

So I offer to you, mes confreres, are we winning?

More importantly, are we winning and we don't even see it?

Yours truly is struggling with this one, even as we speak. The weather is starting to warm and the skies begin to clear. Maybe some elucidation will be the result.

Recall Newsom just hit 2 million signatures. He will allow French kissing strangers soon.

Pelosi et al are horrified that their Lawful Evil Deepstate is being overrun by the Chaotic Evil far left and simultaneously having the Redstates literally telling Pres* Biden to go fuk himself.
So yeah, there’s some panic going on.

Rabel? Ricpic? You can't just drop a blind item like that without a hint. Come on, man!

I would live to be more optimistic, but no we are not winning. We are constantly getting our teeth kicked in. When is the last time we won in a meaningful way? Don't say Trump either, as everything he accomplished was easily undone by the incoming administration.

They can rig elections at will so I don't see us winning anything going forward. Sorry to be such a downer but it is time to face the facts.

Count me in the pessimist column. Don't look for the cavalry to save you in two years either.
The GOPe has kicked it's voting base in the teeth one too many times. They are perfectly content as the minority party.

The goal of getting rid of Trump has been achieved.

Masks and the virus panic are no longer needed.

The U.S. you grew up in is gone.

The commenter in question will remain nameless. Some of you would take exception, so I figure we'll just keep this on the subject at hand.

Not the cavalry. The people. Trump is letting things simmer and he's doing it smart. This has to be the most inept, unskilled, tone-deaf, and inarticulate crew ever at the helm of the US. Vaccines are screwed up. Stimulus is screwed up. Unemployment is going up. Prices are going up.

And everybody knows the election was stolen, whether they want to admit it or not.

I've said all along that anyone waiting for '22 was going to be sorely disappointed. But Trump gave them a taste of what life used to be and I don't think the public is going to sit still for it.

We are? How? When? Where?

The morons in DC have fouled up everything, election included (all that evidence should have been destroyed; the courts know there's enough to turn things around, so they dismiss for lack of "standing"). Everything should be rammed through like the Great Society, but they just can't seem to do it.

Bad news for a bunch of pros. The only thing pushing things at all is Shi and the boys in the forbidden City.

Don't say Trump either, as everything he accomplished was easily undone by the incoming administration.

Hate to tell you, but he lying dogfaced pony soldier violated one of the basic rules of American politics doing that. Even Zippy didn't countermand another President's EOs because people figured that would start a tit-for-tat.

Trump reinstated could just as easily countermand the countermands. You will whine I'm dreaming (I think I know who you are), but I think we're looking at a real crash on many fronts coming in the next few months that will likely change a lot for the worse. And it will all be at the feet of the Demos.

We're all supposed to be so scared of the "occupation" of DC, but we really don't seem to be. I think we'll see a lot more reaction now that the warm weather is coming.

The electoral process can't do it, but the people, if squeezed and abused hard enough, can and I think it may be violent, maybe not.

We'll have to see, but giving up solves nothing. There a lot of whiners among the Conservative ranks and I've heard it all for many years, but, as a couple have said, we know the Whigs won't help, so we have to do it ourselves.

That can be very liberating.

Masks and the virus panic are no longer needed.

Then why are the Demos still clinging to them?

The U.S. you grew up in is gone.

Hell, the US I knew disappeared in '66.

Sixty Grit said...

Dude, at least point out which thread it was - I can keep my mouth shut. I just want to see the back and forth.

chickelit said...

What's been lost of America will play out differently, state by state. Certain states like California are lost causes. There will not be an effective two-party system in that state anytime soon. Interesting will be whether CA Dems go full socialist like Nevada just did.

I moved to a battleground state, WI, and I think the politics here are very much in flux. I'm still getting my ear to the ground.

I had to snort on another site one of the posters accused others of having BDS. When it comes to BDS Biden is Patient Zero.
