Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Happy Thanksgiving

 

When our daughter graduated from the police academy we found a doormat like the one in the photo. She still has it even though she has moved on from police work.

This Thanksgiving the petty tyrants; from mayors to governors, are telling you not to celebrate the holiday with relatives and friends. Some are threatening to use police officers and deputies to issue fines and/or arrests too, including jail time if they find more than four to six people in a home.

There are the neighborhood informants, and media scolds that will be on the lookout for lawbreakers. Inside every Progressive there is a tyrant screaming to get out.

You can still salvage the holiday. Rather than spending the holiday cooking and then enjoying a dinner with family, there is another way to gather with family and friends.

Head downtown with baseball bats, fireworks, Molotov cocktails, and smash some windows. Carry some signs stating Trump is a fascist. Wear helmets with a Press sticker on them, sucker punch an elderly man or woman. Light a dumpster fire. Throw a rope around a statue. Pack light for your event, two cans of spray paint should be enough. You will be a hero and praised for having a mostly peaceful Thanksgiving.

If you decide to have a family Thanksgiving at home don’t forget to put the doormat on the front porch.

    My brother won’t let us do that. He’s still an active LEO, and he especially doesn’t want his five-year-old picking up such habits. What a spoil-sport.

    Just tell him that you won’t let the five-year-old handle the Molotov cocktails.

    Tell ’em that you are holding a John Lewis memorial service.

    Apparently a group of business owners near Buffalo (NY) told the state health department officials and the sheriff exactly that, according to the Daily Wire. According to the Daily Wire article, about 100 business owners were meeting to discuss how to survive, which violated the “no more than 10 people” rule dictated by Gov. Cuomo. The business owners holding the meeting told the health department officials and the sheriff to get off private property (“Go get a warrant”), and raised directly the legal question of whether the executive orders are legally enforceable. That question makes it risky for the sheriff to try to enforce the executive order. 

    [The relevant sheriff (Erie County) had earlier been among the New York sheriffs saying they would not enforce the Thanksgiving family gathering ban, so he may not have been fully on board with the health department’s enforcement effort to begin with.]

    Even though my post was sarcastic this new demand on law enforcement to enforce edicts that are not legislated by the legislature, but come from the executive branch is extremely dangerous. As a police officer I had some discretion in issuing a cite for a violation that did not call for imprisonment.

    Unless a crime involved a felony, or misdemeanor for an assault, or theft I could make a decision on who ended up in the backseat of my car. This new attempt to remove discretion from a law enforcement officer, especially at the direction of an unelected bureaucrat from the health department needs to stop.

    The mantra for the next few months should be “Make Them Famous.”

    When those needle-nosed little bureaucrats some down with these stupid edicts, publicize them. Not the edicts, the persons who call for enforcement. Associate their name with it, and make it stick. Get photos of them and make sure their neighbors know they’re the ones who came up with these stupid ideas. If you run into them in town, make scathing remarks, and casually point them out to people.

    Don’t get in their face, just let them know what people actually think of them and their policies… but if they violate their own policies, turn them in, on the spot, without remorse. Make sure they know they’re not just violating the rules, let the cops know whose fault it is that they’re having to go out and annoy innocent citizens.

    Yeah, a governor or mayor might have announced it, but the bureaucrats are the ones who came up with those stupid ideas in the first place, and are the same ones managing the enforcement. Make them own it.

    Doug, I want to see anti-Biden demonstrations starting in January. Keep those plans handy, and start making the list of home addresses of Biden supporters for future reference. Start with the homes of those Soros-financed DAs.

    When I looked up “Come Back With a Warrant” door mats, they were mostly listed under “funny” door mats. I think they’re the opposite of funny.

    A friend had a sign on the door rather than a door mat.

    Choose one or more of the following:

    1. I already know Jesus
    2. I don’t want any
    3. I’m not feeling chatty
    4. Come back with a warrant

    It may have been here or it may have been on the Bleat, but many years ago someone suggested posting a sign by your front door that says “I will listen to your spiel only if you first sing Mitch Miller’s King of the Road for me.”

    I wonder if that’s more subtle than it seems at first glance.

    Is that a trick? Or did you mean Roger?

    Trailers for sale or rent.
    Rooms to let for fifty cents.
    No phone, no pool, no pets.
    Ain’t got no cigarettes.
    Ah, but two hours of pushing broom
    Buys an eight-by-twelve four-bit room.
    I’m a man of means by no means:
    King of the road!
