This means so much to so many Americans. I hope they will remember In November how much Democrat bullshit he cut through to get our country back

Dr_Falsey 254 points ago

Hey wait, I just realized something: many churches are voting locations. By shutting down churches, the left has cancelled out the rights usual venues for voting.

Same with schools

too_awake_for_work 59 points ago

False - I voted in my usual venue last tuesday, which is a Middle School. Just because school itself is not in session doesn't mean that the actual venue is closed.

Dr_Falsey 18 points ago

What state? Red or Blue county?

31
too_awake_for_work 31 points ago

Virginia, Blue County. It wasn't too crowded, mainly because it was just local officials and city council stuff. Plus the Governor urged voters to vote absentee.

Dr_Falsey 15 points ago

Cool. Thanks for the info. Don’t think Newsome would “allow” that where he is.

too_awake_for_work 10 points ago

No problem. Some venues might be closed if they can't properly social distance, but there should be info on different polls if that happened. My venue, again, is a middle school and they use the cafeteria for elections. There were fewer booths this time and spread out, but voter turnout for local officials is a lot lower than Presidential and Senate / House Members. I was in and out within a few minutes.

I believe that God put Trump in charge of our country. And He is all powerful. What Trump will do in the next 4 years will be astonishing. So grateful to be witnessing this battle between God and Satan (Democrats).

I think we're going to win out.

I was beginning to respond in agreement with SaNeOldguy with a bunch of thoughtful detail about how I think we got to where we are as a society, globalism, how I feel we might possibly get back on track, etc. etc. and then I saw your comment and realized what you said it is absolutely all that matters!

Amen. We pray for him and his protection everyday! God has used imperfect people perfect for the time to accomplish His will since the beginning of time and we are witnessing it here. We are the remnant. God has heard our cries. We will win! Hold the line!

39
sailorgaia 39 points ago

Amen! Even in the worst times we put our faith in Jesus and trust he is in control. Our Trump, an imperfect person like the rest of us, has wisely understood if he acknowledges Jesus and his church he will find favor, whether he is a true believer or not. It is amazing how God works things, putting Obama in office for 8 years simply to inspire Trump to run. Perhaps that’s reading into it too much but when I imagine Hillary in charge during a worldwide panic... Terrifying.

I pray Trump continues to acknowledge the Lord and for his continued success.

Pray_The_Rosary 15 points ago

God appoints every leader but it is important to remember that He can take away whatever has been given to a community. And if people do not give what is owed to Him, prayers through the Rosary that is the Lord's Prayer and Angelic Salutation, then the people will have robbed God of what is owed to Him.

So remind your neighbor who is important and try to teach your community to put time aside in their day to meditate on the life of Christ through the Mysteries. Even if they can only find the strength to meditate on one Mystery. The Rosary will be like a mental and spiritual exercise that strengthen the minds of you and your neighbors.

When liberalism threatens to divide your community, it will be life of Christ and Mary that will provide a moral compass and sense of unity by which your community will repel the liberal disease. And if you can repel the liberal disease, you can claim victory against Satan and his forces.

Trump is temporary and will not be able to hold office after a second term but the threat of liberalism will remain until the Day of Judgement and God's grace will remain for eternity. Take the time to prepare yourselves and your communities while Trump is in office so that you can hold your ground against evil.

InSaNeOldGuy 24 points ago

All churches have services at various times on Sunday, but many have services on other days as well, at other times, and in other places. There are services where I live on the Beach. Some churches meet in Parks. Movie theaters. Also, a huge part of the church are Small Group Meetings, which are held 7 days a week in people's homes. Church activities like feeding the homeless go on every singe day. All of these services and meetings worship God, and they are indeed essential.

So... If I live in a state that's locked down, and I wish to attend any of the above, based on what Trump just said, do I not have the right to defy said lockdown?

2000 years we have held mass. Jews have worshipped on the Sabbath for 4000 years. Then the left said “fuck off, we are God now, and you must obey US or else you will die!”

Thank God for President Trump. He truly is fighting Satan.

P.S. Muslims have been killing each other for 1400 years so I didn’t include them. Jihad is non-essential.

Well they're definitely not afraid to fight back. If everyone in Texas went to church and carried there (and almost everyone could....except Sleepy Joe made it illegal) then I'm sure no one would bother them either. Well unless it's in Waco,TX......

3
RapidAsparagus 3 points ago

They have the same rights as anyone else. No more, and no less. We just haven't been good at enforcing that "no more" part.

That being said, I think it's important to note that some things, for example immigration, are privileges, not rights.

I am aware of what they do. My original point was instead of arguing that churches should not be attacked by the government, we are arguing mosques should be shut down.

This is what the deep state wants.

2
RapidAsparagus 2 points ago

Do you literally believe that the British Crown would have considered the founding fathers a "cult", or rather just "violent extremists" perhaps?

If you do believe they would have considered them a cult, could you give some examples or sources? I've never heard that concept before.

People who believe in liberty are considered extremist nutjobs. Go and tell a normie you believe that anyone should be able to buy a gun and watch the reaction.

ClownTamer 20 points ago

The ones demanding more were either unemployed either way, shills, or are doing better because of the quarantine. If before you had a shitty commute and now you're getting paid the same or more to live in your pajamas, and never went outside to do much anyway because you're a lazy sack of shit and have no real friends, I can see how the quarantine's no big deal. Tech folks here in the Bay are actually getting paid more during all this if you can believe it.

Tech folks here in the Bay are actually getting paid more during all this if you can believe it.

What, pray tell, the logic behind that, so that I might share it with my employer?

4
ClownTamer 4 points ago

Happens in multiple ways from what I’ve been told from Facebook and Google types:

  1. Anything you want to make working from home easier tech wise. New 80” 8K TV? 3 monitors? New MacBook Pro even though you already have the new MacBook Pro? Whatever, it’s yours. That’s always the case, and they even have free Apple product vending machines, but now you get a personal set at home of anything you’d like for any reason.
  2. They’re paying for all utilities now since you’re working from home, over the price to cover it. Includes internet, which you already had anyway but why not?
  3. Covering food at home since they used to cover all food at work with super star Iron chef kitchens 24/7.
  4. Covering a portion of your rent or mortgage since you’re using it as a home office now.
  5. Any and all child care expenses covered.
  6. Bonuses to help mitigate the ‘emotional trauma’ of the pandemic.
  7. For some of them, they’re also paying for the illegal alien that’s going to get your groceries that they’re already paying for too.

I was thinking about this over lunch. I know a lot of these Democrat Karens, and all of them cry "selfish" at anyone wanting out. But like everything the Democrats do, it's just projection. It's really the Karens being selfish. They got scared by the TV and now want everyone to stay inside so everyone doesn't get them sick. That's the long and short of it.

My mother had this notion that there were armed soldiers outside that would arrest anyone who didn't wear a mask or came out on the wrong assigned day in our city. I've been going out almost every day and even leaving the house at 1 am to go to the 7-11 that never stopped operating 24/7. Took her out with me the other day to show her that everything outside was pretty much normal with people going about their business and no one freaking out and screaming murder if you don't wear a mask.

No no no, common drumpftard mistake. The reason this is a failure is because we haven’t gone socialist enough! If we gave ten times more money, and closed down even more stuff, and shut down even more dissidents, then it’d all circle back around and make everything work again.

Yes they will, especially my mom (I mean she’s never been on the fence to begin with, but to her this is huge.). The haters will say he’s just pandering, and I don’t believe that for a second but even if it’s true who cares? Like I’ve been told repeatedly “Trump doesn’t give a damn about you.” Ok well, that’s perfectly fine, but the policies he’s implementing are benefiting me and people who believe like I do, so what’s the difference. If he were an opportunist, so what? At least he’s using the Executive Branch to advance our conservative values and at the end of the day that’s what’s most important (and all that gobbledegook, I don’t believe for 1 second but again even if it were true...)

2
QuranIsToiletPaper 2 points ago

Like I’ve been told repeatedly “Trump doesn’t give a damn about you.”

Except Trump has literally nothing to gain. He was a multi-billionaire and pop culture icon with a near-perfect family, before running. Now he gets demonized 24/7, has his family attacked, has lost much of his fortune, and takes no salary.

He truly does simply love America and Americans. Hard to believe, maybe, but true.

ActionExpress 22 points ago

Our recreational locations never shut down. Just limited how many were allowed in at once to comply with social distancing guidelines.

The left knew one of Trumps biggest successes was helping small business succeed. It’s the difference of Main Street vs Wall Street. This shutdown has eroded those gains. You can’t tell me that I’m not safe shopping at a small business, but Walmart is ok? Fucking scam of my life, will never forget what these assholes have done.

Edit: I was able to get dental work done in CA, I just told them it hurt and they deemed it an essential emergency. Doc knew it was all bs but he’s got to make his $ as well.

12
PelosiParabiosisist 12 points ago (edited)

Ya allowing the big box stores to be open and not smaller businesses is not great. The "reason" given is that they sell essential things. So since Walmart, target, Fred Meyer or whatever sell food and medicine they are considered "essential". However they happen to sell other non-essential stuff so in essence they get a monopoly over those non-essentials. And that doesn't even consider Amazon. In some places I think they tried to make it so big box stores can only sell essential goods, but that seems ridiculous, when you are in the store and you are holding the item in your hand and they are like "nope can't buy it." But that is what would be necessary to be fair. Like every downturn of my life, we are going to come out with more consolidation. Those with much, more will be given. Those with little, more will be taken.

There were deists there, but deism isn't atheism, just that G-d doesn't answer all prayers, doesn't dictate everything, portions of the bible are not true, and so forth. The USA was not founded on a single religion, and is not beholden to any. On a side note, a good portion of the founders held religious degrees.

Wrong, this is leftist bullshit. Founders we’re overwhelmingly Christian.The Capitol building was even used for church services for over 100 years. Each Sunday when Jefferson was president, he had the marine corps band play the hymns during service. Jefferson was a Christian, he was a complicated man who questioned many things but he was no atheist. He has a lifetime of letters that prove this but leftists always find a sentence or two to make us draw certain conclusions about their target. These leftist claims about atheists and deists are Not backed up by any footnotes, cherry picking a quote from one point in someone’s life can’t paint the picture of their entire life.

tombombadil 6 points ago

It’s funny. The reason that liquor stores remain open is because they unfortunately are essential for a lot of people. About 10% of the country is addicted to alcohol. And alcohol withdrawal can have serious consequences, including death.

But marijuana advocates say that weed is totally safe and not addictive and no one is dependent on it. So why they hell are pot shops open??

The government couldn't care less about alcohol addiction. They want that $$$ from the taxes of liquor sales.

Because whether you want to believe it or not, cannabis saves lives.

My grandpa was an alcoholic. It was definitely “medical” for him. It was doing terrible damage to his body and almost destroyed his marriage. But the only time he had to go to the hospital for it was when he tried to quit cold turkey. He started having seizures. He had to go through a 2 month rehab program where he was closely monitored in order to safely quit.

I was talking about pot shops specifically. I am very familiar with how alcohol wd works. It is not great for people to be forced to detox if they don't have to. I agree with you that now is not a time for people to be told to quit. Can't really go to rehab nor are hospital resources well spent right now on a medical detox. And just because you went through WD doesn't mean the addiction still isn't there and you will just start again. I agree it is essential. Just wish they would start giving out maintenance meds(like benzos) instead of having people drink. Alcohol is just very hard on the body. Actually kind of uniquely hard on the body for a drug.

Dude benzos are serious, serious poison. The withdrawal from them is a multi-month nightmare of madness. That and mixed with alcohol or opiates they're likely to shuffle you off this mortal coil pretty easily.

I treat my Crohns with it literally giving me a normal life where I dont constantly soil myself with horrid pain and get nonstop surgeries, and know three people who control seizures with both THC and CBD, and countless other disorders. Getting stoned is also a liberty. If you would like further education or information on the benefits of cannabis I can provide many resources.

CBD is a solid painkiller. THC is just to get giggly off of.

I think there's something beyond just tax revenue with this. One of their biggest revenue sources is gas taxes and that all but dried up. I think the left fears the churches because they give people hope and a positive outlook on life. Then on top of that, they reinforce good, traditional values. These are things that drives people away from the left. They want to control where you get information and ideas and they do that through schools and media (controlled indoctrination). I'm agnostic and have never attended church, but my family members do and those are some of the things they get from it.

PoppinKREAM 7 points ago

To play devil's advocate, alcoholics would literally die en masse were the booze stores to close. We're talking literally millions suffering incredibly painful deaths. It's one of those weird issues where somehow, we've reached a point where they quite literally are essential from a medical perspective.

That being said, it doesn't really matter. The Constitution requires that the government not infringe on the People's right to assemble and associate freely. Even if this were worse than the plague, the our Constitutional rights dictate that the state let people do as they please.

Either way, solid move on Trump's part. He let the states do their thing, and now he's enforcing root-level Constitutional rights on the offense. I assume there will be more to come as they slowly chip away at the wannabe kings running the blue states.

So how do they safely stop drinking?

1
Montana_rulz 1 point ago

Medically supervised detox is the safest option. There are medications (usually benzodiazepine) that can be administered to help ease withdrawal symptoms and make the process safe. Slowly tapering off of alcohol over a long period can also work, but can be difficult for people as it requires the individual to stick to a very strict schedule and it’s easy to relapse.

It's because the models they used to justify the shutdown said that millions would die. Millions. Of course we now know the models were bullshit and a shutdown was never warranted... But that's in hindsight.

If the models had been correct than a shutdown was justified. But they weren't, they were bullshit and this is causing huge economic damage that doesn't outweigh the virus effects. I'm not in the camp that believes that the models were intentionally bullshit, but I can see their point of view.

But now that we know they are bullshit? It's time to open back up. Open it all back up.

Right, but that's why I'm harping on the guy for using the phrase "separation of church/state". The phrase CAN be interpreted to say state must be separate from church.

So the US Govt can not establish a national religion. I.e, you are not required to belong to the church of England (or any church/mosque/syngagogue). But "separation of church and state" is taken to mean we can't, in a mostly Christian country, mention God in school. Supposedly because the state must be separated from church. That's a twisted interpretation, with bad condequences. That's why the phrase is not found any where in real law. It's mostly used by liberals to anihilate christians.

My company will not make it to August, even with PPP. I will be looking for a job months from now! My wife is already laid off and who knows if they'll ever call her back. This can't keep going on. This is destroying people's lives. It has destroyed decades of our hard work.

How does people losing their jobs help Trump get re-elected? How is that "for the greater good"?

I'm already voting for him. I'm not going to not vote for him. But losing my job because my Governor is allowed to be a petulant commie fuck is not me "doing my part". Losing my house is not a "sacrifice that is worth it". That doesn't even make sense. That's current actual lefty-logic.

It helps because other people in your position might now be inclined to vote Trump now where they wouldn’t have before. Six months of pain for four years of glory after is a small sacrifice. No offense but you’re seeing the trees instead of the forest.

Some folks in their field are deathly scared and won't open, and the ones that aren't scared don't want to offend their communities by opening too fast.

It's a shitty position to be in, but someone needs to just sack up, take off the masks, and open already.

This was the type of comment I was looking for because I have a question. What would that order be? When I see that Trump will override I'm not sure how. I don't think he can use an EO. The 1st amendment applies to Congress, not governors so I think that's out and would probably end up in the courts anyway. I'm curious what legal avenues exist. All I can think of is that he will threaten to cut off funding but that's not a true override. He must have something up his sleeve but I can't think of what.

If Governors don't comply, he should send in federal troops to escort parishioners to and from church to prevent them from being raided or arrested by these tyrannical governors, just like when we had to do escort kids to school during desegregation when the racist Democrats wanted to ban black people from public schools.

Why were churches complying to begin with?

Our Christian ancestors spent 300 years getting together under pain of death and plagues were an every other day thing back then.

I'm pulling a Kayleigh Mcenany question if your church shut down shouldn't you be asking your pastor on Sunday morning why your church isn't following the example set by the first three centuries of Christians that valued their faith more than what the government said? Shouldn't you be asking why that example isn't being followed in your church?

It amazes me that the Q&A after that, all the reports are basically harping that they think the President doesn't have the authority to override the governors if they seek to keep churches closed. Never mind that it is the sworn duty of the President (and frankly the governors as well) to uphold the constitution which clearly prevents the government from interfering with Church operations.

Apparently, the twitter mob is saying that Trump forcing states to allow churches to reopen violates the 10th amendment.

Just want to double check...

  1. Is that actually true?

  2. If the above is actually true, does the constitution allow Trump to override it if he so wishes?

  3. If Trump cannot override the 10th amendment and cannot force states to reopen churches, then that would imply he also does not have the power to force states to quarantine in the first place, in which case the deaths from the virus would be in the hands of the 50 governors and not Trump since they would be the ones to actually enact the quarantines.

2
American-Patriot [S] 2 points ago
  1. No. The States have been violating MULTIPLE of our rights from the beginning of this lockdown nonsense. 1st: Freedom of assembly and liberty. They have posted fines and made it illegal to gather in a church or address grievances with the government. 2nd: Right to keep and bear arms. Many have closed down gun stores, or indefinitely delayed the right to purchase and posses a firearm by not completing a background check. 4th and 5th: Many have forcibly locked us down without due process, and many governors such as the one in California, want to unconstitutionally track down and keep record of people who are, or are near proximity with, those infected with covid-19. and many more.

Remember. the 10th amendment states: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." All the actions taken by many governors have taken clearly violate the US Constitution and infringe on our rights to go outside, run a business, work, and live life.

This is the right move. It's not worth getting into a fight over whether the arson in Mississippi was a false flag or an angry Karen. Don't give either side the time of day. Just open everything up.

And immediately removed by r/NYC mods.

One sane comment made it in at least...

Unpopular opinion esp bc it involves the confluence of two things Reddit hates (religion and Trump): he’s right. The right to freely practice your religion is clearly and obviously protected by the First Amendment, and as much as Reddit dislikes it, that right cannot be infringed.

And to be clear, Trump doesn’t give a shit about religion however he cares deeply about voters who are religious. And, no, he cannot demand that churches open; however, the Federal courts have been very clear that churches that want to open, can open.

This is a balance we have to strike as a free society, and having lived through the post 9/11 era, we should never surrender basic human rights - even if the ‘Reddit consensus’ is that right is silly.

Wow, real leadership.

He should have had a priest, Iman, and Rabbi up there with him to drive it home.

So our President is mandating churches open. Let's see if Archbishop Lori will open the churches in Baltimore or he'll keep them closed.

Isn't it ironic the states that pushed so hard to destroy States' Rights, (for reasons we now have come to understand,) are now on the receiving end of the federal power they fought so hard to build up.
