Brothers Campfire Covid Communist State

Satire (Based on real events)

Hello Comrades, 你好同志 共产

I am here today to vent a little frustration at the current covid/ corona situation.

Last night I went to the Walmart at 9 PM to find that Walmart had closed half an hour prior. On Saturday? Before Mother’s Day? In Merica?

I sat in my car for a few moments to plan how Mother’s Day Breakfast would transpire when two politzi 秘密警察 approached me in their Fountain Police Department Vehicles.

Savvy to their detainment tactics, I put my car into drive and carefully followed the parking lot rules which are actually difficult to enforce in many cases by the 秘密警察 Police. It is easy to corner a stationary vehicle and give a ridiculous reason for contact.

Sorry, did not wish to talk, write me a letter!

I continued along the parking lot route knowing that probable cause would deteriorate quickly.

Private citizen, private lot, you know, Merica.

Finding no reason to stop said proletariat 无产阶级 the two police officers 秘密警察 found easier prey and stopped following me. You betcha I was ready to record!

I was shocked that my stop in a parking lot could lead to potential questioning by the authorities in the United States of America 美国.

All of my actions were reasonable and appropriate.

For an American.

America’s Allegory

I told this to my sister, and found just the other day the Fountain Police Department 秘密警察 tried to bully her into saying that she was driving 50 MPH in a 30.

I will tell you something about US Police. You do not need to admit to speeding. If the instruments in the squad car clock you, you are out and will pay a fee to the local government. 受贿

They gave her such a hard time she cried. If you know anything about her she is tough as nails. She is my sister, how could she not be tough? They didn’t give her a ticket. You know why? They had nothing. 20 over is almost an arrestable offense.

I looked up the Fountain Police Department Reviews. This is what I found.

I Bet You Did, That is if you like to be rolled up on when you aren’t commiting a crime or you like tears.

I have been asking around and discovered that at least in my area, the police are randomly stopping people and asking for papers. 身份证

Like this, but in police uniform. Are they trying to contract Corona?

I finally made it to the marketplace 市场 at the appropriate time with my papers. There were again two police cars in front of the Walmart. Rules were strictly enforced.

They Even Instruct You How To Shop

Options were limited on meats, but borscht and kimche was readily available.

Communism at its Finest

We will see how this pseudo socialism continues.

    “…borscht and kimche was readily available…” Cracked me up. Yeah, Fountain Police department is pretty bad. One of the multitude of reasons to love ‘Murrica is that we can be critical and we can know and understand our rights and stand up for them. A number of years ago someone we both know, Matt, had his house broken into and the Fountain PD messed up the investigation badly.

      I was not aware of that. Free Speech Is a Basic Human Right

    Ok, I hope this does not upset you, but it probably will. Do you remember history? Do you remember the restrictions on people during World War Two? This is certainly not socialism, but it is an attempt to have a responsible society with people who understand what sacrifice is. Take a look at the lessons from the greatest generation in the Great Depression and World War Two. We are inconvenienced–true, but is that really so bad? Again, I hope you take this as a gentle reminder of history.

      I hope this will not upset you, but it probably will. What is the first word on my post?

      First of all, the police in the 1930s & 1940s were no different than they are today. You had all kinds of officers, good and bad and power hungry knuckleheads. In this country we can criticize the police. We can also criticize the government at any level. I guess it depends on how much you trust the government. You are, of course, welcome to unquestioningly do whatever the government says, many people never question the government. The restrictions of the time period we refer to as The Great Depression, if you will blow the dust off your history book, had not been imposed by the government. This is nothing like WWII. Besides, if you actually read the post you would discover that it was about an abusive police system in a local community.

    That’s exactly how our Walmart looks and it’s always busting crazy in it.
    Today, I was going to take my mom out for fun and to let her buy anything she wants with my money, but all clothing stores don’t open until the afternoon and they close early, so it won’t work out just yet.

            You as well, little sister! I think it is great that you are reading the Bible with dad, sister in law and niece.

    If some in our gov had their way, we would never go back to “normal” and we would become a socialist country. But normal for me and you is different than for someone else. I like that there’s relatively no traffic – on the roads or in the air.
    We are free to believe what we want to believe, but when they (the gov) start taking away our rights…we better pay attention, because we may never get those rights back!

    1. Benjamin says:

      Well spoken. I do not ask for a loss of freedom for a little more security. 🤠🔥

        I was going to go into the whole ww2/great depression bit, but that would be a post in itself. There are huge differences between now and then, but there are also major commonalities. If we don’t learn from the past, we are doomed to repeat it.

        1. Benjamin says:

          I would happily read a post about the subject if you wrote it.
          We do tend to repeat ourselves throughout history!

            I started to with my post “two in blue”, I’m really trying to wrap my head around all this and get my thoughts together.

            LOL! I meant something even more emotional than that.

          2. rue202 says:

            Awesome! Look forward to it. Will you post it on your blog as well?

          3. Benjamin says:

            Absolutely. I would prefer if you wait until it is a blog post.
