The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


Edmund Burke was correct; "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." It may sound trite and simplistic, but it is true. Our founders were in the minority, overwhelmed by the apathetic and the active royalists, but they persevered simply by doing something.

But these two gentlemen decided that the governor of New Jersey, a stupid, venal, arrogant, corrupt fascist needed to be confronted. Murphy is a sleazy scumbag from Goldman Sachs who bought an ambassadorship from Obama, then the governorship of New Jersey with his fortune earned by many years as a scummy Goldman Sachs executive.

His sense of freedom and liberty and the limits of government are nonexistent; he thinks that the Bill of Rights is above his pay grade, and revels in shutting down any dissent, with force if necessary. He is the worst combination of progressive ignorance and leftist totalitarianism.

New Jersey gym owner defiant after arrest for violating stay-at-home order: 'I'm not afraid of tyrants'

"I'm not afraid of tyrants. No American should be," Smith said. "We outnumber them greatly and the only thing that they run off of is fear, which is why you see what you see in the media where they are pumping fear ... They don't ever offer any solutions. It is, 'Wear a mask, shut up, and wait for a vaccine.'

"That's not public health," Smith asserted, "and I won't subscribe to it."

New Jersey is falling apart. Murphy is pushing higher taxes, more money out of the state budget for his pet projects, and the bloat in Trenton is worse than ever. But because he is a cowardly bully, he goes after those who do not have the power to defy him. Yet against all odds, these gym owners are doing just that...sticking their thumbs in the eye of the governor, and making him look like even more of a thin-skinned ass than he already does.

13,000 visitors to the gym since they told Murphy to stick it, and not a single reported case of Wuhan Flu. And yet this gym is the focus of the state?
