Default We are on total lockdown. Iím done being quiet.

I went on Facebook live tonight to challenge the Mayor of Austin and the Sherriff of Williamson county to arrest me because I will not comply with their threat to jail anyone who leaves their home unless for food, meds, or doctor.

**** THEM. Iíve played the silent majority game because I was afraid of backlash from the radical left here. Well, people, Iíve got nothing to lose now.

I went on to tell people that The Show Must Go On and I have dozens of paying gigs for displaced musicians. We will go live every Friday until further notice with our improv show. I donít care if Iím the only one that shows. Iíll take all the money. (So far all musicians are still up for the gig).

I also told them if they were uncomfortable, they can cancel no harm no foul but I will replace them.

My business ground to a halt so they have nothing to ruin. If I canít pay insurance Iím done in this life.

I openly challenged the Mayor and the Sherriff to arrest me. I told them Iíll be leaving my house at 5:30 Friday to drive ten minutes to the radio station. Come and ****ing get me.

I hope they do. Iíll be on Fox News within a week.

Iíve felt like a coward for a while now keeping my views to myself. I cannot in good conscience continue to be muzzled. I will take on any fallout that happens. If some liberal douche doesnít want to hire me because I advocate for freedom **** THEM. I will only work for conservatives.

My show is making its way across the globe. Arresting me would only propel it further and give me a bigger platform.

We are in the early stage of TEOTWAWKI. We will be living on our preps. Grocery stores are wiped clean. Even in Casper Wyoming.

Gasoline will be next. Not worried about power. TEXAS has its own grid. We will he refining our OPSEC plan (we did a half assed one a couple years ago. Iím working with a friend who is a Green Beret to refine.)

I believe violence will start ramping in about three weeks. Mostly random robberies, assaults, mass shootings from people losing their livelihood, progressing to food riots and home invasions if it gets really bad.

I expect my music career will end too because every one I employ in that area is a whacked out leftist. **** them too.

I will not hire a leftist. I wonít piss on one thatís on fire. They will get no quarter from me.

(Any home invaders here are going to very surprised at what they encounter. At least for the four seconds they will live.)

I have nothing to lose. My poor son lost his job today that he loves. He is going to apply for jobs but he doesnít realize there will be no jobs for unskilled labor.

His little girlfriend. Was a total **** to me yesterday in my own house. It was like she was a different person. Controlling, obnoxious and disrespectful. My son was a cuck mouse. He doesnít have what it takes to stand up to her because he is really a sweet kid who hates conflict.

They are still planning on moving out May 2nd. They make less than $2k a month gross combined. I asked about their plan. ďWell Iím hoping I get a promotion to work in the ERĒ she says. Thinking Iím going to buy that horseshit. So I ask ďreally? What are you going to do?Ē She said ďreceptionistĒ

Then she said there might be a job for Enzo there too. They think ďHopeĒ is a strategy. The hospitals wonít be hiring anyone but skilled people to care for patients. They are going to be ****ed. (Oh well, I did my best)

I have chemo tomorrow so maybe Friday I will start organizing the neighborhood to have plans to lock it down if needed. Some will think Iím a nut. Most will get it and stand up.

Iím off my knees. I want to encourage each of you to stand up and do whatever is needed to quell these people who are causing so much misery for power.

Itís more than obvious what is going on here. China started it because they had a significant social rebellion. It worked. The leftist media and DNC saw the opportunity to never let a crisis go to waste and this is perfect for them.

Take a yearly event (flu) and get people to panic. Keep them in fear. Sneak in legislation that further weakens their ability to fight back (no assembly, gun confiscation, destroy their ability to survive so they rely on government, Patriot Act, position National guard around the country to ďhelpĒ

They are moving at hyper speed because their days are numbered.

Iím a man with nothing to lose. Try me mother****ers.

When the looting starts I'm gonna have to decide if I leave my wife and grandson at home by themselves or stay home and protect my family and property.

I'm still going to work as they have not locked things down here, my wife's working from home. All our upper management has been working from home while leaving us expendables to run the plant.

If any incidents start to occur that give me reason to suspect they are not safe at home guess I'll quit this job and stay home.

Two thoughts:

1) Please take precautions to avoid getting the Wu flu. Immune compromised folks are the most at risk for something really bad happening. We don't want to lose you or see you in the ER. I think these diktats are anathema to our rights and way of life as well, but that doesn't mean we abandon common sense to make a point. I take care of my Mom, who is the EXACT demographic likely to die if she gets it. I'm very cognizant about that as I make decisions. We work for pipelines and plants, so we certainly are considered essential. We're at a gasoline terminal this week, and it's business as usual, although there are special protocols in place.

2) Don't get discouraged at what you are seeing. Trump has already indicated his feelings about all of this. He's going to perform a modern day Easter miracle, resurrecting the economy. He has flat out stated what we are all thinking, that the cure is worse than the illness, and he isn't going to be the guy who destroyed the American economy and the American way of life on his watch.

That's a clear indicator that Trump is going to use that 'dictator like' power to stop all the business closures being instituted by local and state governments. I'm encouraged. The greatest nation in history is NOT going to go out like a punk. [insert time to give thanks that Trump is our president right now]

Pete, nothing wrong with believing in something and being willing to stand up for it. Thatís character and soul, something missing from a lot of folks.

the politicians have become power drunk over this. Little-by-little they sneak in additional socialistic restrictions and wait to see how the electorate reacts.


Not only are the feds testing for COVID-19; but some of the officials are testing new methods of
kontrol.

Iíve been careful to say that people should shelter in place and be safe. However, they need to make that choice themselves. I hope you are right. There is only so much the President can to.

So they passed a 2 trillion relief bill. We get $1200 a person. Whew. That will make everything just fine.

Now they are talking about mobilizing the military (Not national guard - they are already mobilized) why do we need the military to move resources? We donít. Thatís called ďstaging of troopsĒ

The Federal Government is setting up to rule us, kill us if we resist and strip us of our freedoms.

Most of the real draconian measures are at the state and local level.

Yeah, I know, who wants actual facts?
