Joe Biden, America’s First Dictator
Alaska Airlines bans Republican Senator Lora Reinbold for violating mask rules…”We have notified Senator Lora Reinbold that she is not permitted to fly with us for her continued refusal to comply with employee instruction regarding the current mask policy,” [Alaska Airlines] spokesman Tim Thompson said on Saturday, and confirmed the same to Fox News. “This suspension is effective immediately, pending further review.”
Before diving into my blog posting, on a side note, did you know it is against the law to prevent a legislator from getting to congress when session is called? Sure, this comes from Clause 1 of the Constitution, The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.
Since Alaska Airlines pretty much has a monopoly on flights in and out of Juno, Alaska; I am curious if clause 1 applies? But I digress.
Is it too far a stretch to imagine a day when the President of the United States declares a national emergency to combat obesity in America? Being a fat man that tips the scale at over 300 lbs, this worries me. Imagine the President’s executive order requires all Americans to eat healthy food if they are overweight. Now imagine next time I walked in to McDonalds, I am required to take a body mass index test and service was refused if I was too fat?
The current National Emergency is a Presidential Fiat, not a Congressional Bill/Law…Demands from the executive branch of government requiring personal behavior change means we have a dictator-in-chief. By the Federal Government (Presidential Fiat) requiring masks be worn at all times, the right to free movement about the country has been infringed. Restaurants, airlines, and hospitals are just a few of the many new federal law enforcement braches of the American Government and Joe Biden’s administration.
I am not looking forward to the day when Joe declares war on obesity…I like my French fries and double cheeseburger. I thought being born in America meant I was free to eat myself to death, if I so choose. I guess Uncle Joe knows best…
