It seems some people are bothered when evil deeds are exposed in their community and they would like to keep it quiet, just move on. Don’t tell the taxpayers. Sounds a lot like “never mind, nothing to see here….”
I looked up the definition of muckraker. It’s not a bad thing, although the person who said it to me made it seem derogatory. Perhaps the man did not know the definition. At dictionary.com, it defines muckraker this way:
“a person who searches for and tries to expose real or alleged corruption, scandal, or other wrongdoing, especially in politics:The original muckrakers were the journalists who exposed child labor, sweatshops, poor living and working conditions, and government inefficiency in the early 20th century.“
So I guess I really am a “muckraker” after all, because that’s what I do sometimes because I work in media. It does not give me pleasure when people do evil, and I am not against them as persons. I am however against their criminal actions when they use hard earned taxpayer money that doesn’t belong to them and lie to and cheat the taxpaying public. And there’s plenty of that to go around in our nation. I would much prefer that everyone serve the public honorably.
But if they repent when they get caught and exposed, I rejoice in that. That is a very good thing.
John 3:19 says “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
Getting Vaccinated Can Get You a Free Drink Under New Law Signed by Gov. Pritzker
SB 104 Also Extends Cocktails-To-Go Measure Which Helped Businesses During Pandemic
This coming out of Springfield yesterday — Businesses serving alcohol can now offer up a free drink to vaccinated patrons under a new law signed by Governor JB Pritzker today. The measure also extends businesses’ ability to sell cocktails for pickup and delivery.
“Not only will the vaccine protect you from getting sick — your free COVID-19 shot can now get you a free shot of your choosing or whatever drink suits your palate,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “I’m pleased to sign this legislation into law to offer our hardest-hit businesses another lifeline as we recover from the pandemic.”
Illinois Governor JB Pritzker is giving out carrots. What do I mean by that? You’ve heard of the carrot and the stick, right?
Wikipedia defines the phrase this way, “The phrase ‘carrot and stick’ is a metaphor for the use of a combination of reward and punishment to induce a desired behavior. In politics, “carrot or stick” sometimes refers to the realist concept of soft and hard power.”
So if he’s giving out carrots and the “rabbits” won’t bite, does the stick come next?
Don’t ever give up asking questions! This post piggybacks onto my last post from July 2020. LOTS more puzzle pieces have emerged since that time….
Now the conspirators are actually TELLING us what they are up to. I guess they think no one will notice. First, regarding the stolen election of November 2020…TIME magazine actually printed a piece describing how they stole it and why. The article was written by Molly Ball and posted on February 4, 2021. I’m not going to post the link because I don’t want them coming here. They actually said they were GUARDING the election by releasing all the safety standards on elections in the contested states. They were actually GUARDING democracy by filling out fake ballots filled out ahead of time for Joe Biden. They were ensuring democracy.
I have questions. I actually think everyone should have questions. Questions about all of the opposing information we have been given about this pandemic. But I work for the news media. We’ are supposed to ask questions. All truly thinking people should not be satisfied with just being told things willy-nilly. Especially when the information has been and continues to be so conflicting. After all these months now, our government wants to mandate masking….that’s just one of the weird things, especially when in the beginning, we were told, “it’s just for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.” And now we have flattened the economy and people’s lives…but heh… Continue reading →
Besides not knowing many features of the strange COVID-19 virus, it is noticeable (to me, at least) that reporting on the virus has never included the numbers of those who have successfully recovered from having the virus. Continue reading →
