      Sometimes I write something and can’t believe what I just wrote.

      And they will too

      Just like they will on weapons when it’s time.

      Absolutely. This is just a warm-up.

      Do you think that some areas are more prone to accommodate these types of directives…poking their nose into their neighbor’s business and running to tattle?  There is always the kid who’d tattle to get the reward/praise….and perhaps many never grew out of that attention-seeking.  But I wonder tho, if some areas are less likely to encourage those types of folks?  Areas with more hard work and less leisure time for pressing their nose against the neighbor’s window…so to speak.

      Hmph…around here, if someone looked in someone’s window LITERALLY…they might get their head blown off.  Or they’d discover a large dog’s teeth clamped down on their leg.  And we live far enough apart that mostly, it would be hard to count noses without looking in the window.  😉

      But I agree….it’s chilling …”see something; stay something”.   If your elderly neighbor doesn’t seem to be out in her yard like she usually is……it’s a decent thing to quietly check to see if she’s fallen.  If you’re pretty danged sure a child is being abused on a regular basis…. {sigh}  …butt in and save the kid.

      But having ELEVEN people for Thanksgiving is a realllllly bad joke.  No one’s laughing.

      OldMtWoman  …..”just a warm-up”  That’s the chilling part!

        Of course their are communities more prone to telling on one another. Middle class suburban is the worst. They don’t actually know their neighbors and have habits of calling 911 for EVERYTHING.

        They don’t actually look in your window in most cases they just see the cars in your drive or street. That’s all the “probable cause” needed.

        Then they just cut your power and water like this:

        Los Angeles to cut water and power to homes hosting large gatherings amid pandemic

        You got that right about middle class subburbia!
        I have lived in various places, and middle class subburbia was the worst. No one knew each other. No one waved. I got dirty looks walking my dog. It was down right hostile.

        Then I move to rural area NY. I know my neighbors! We have get togethers to cook out, maybe do some target shooting.

        The wife’s car got stuck in the snow in the drive. Some young man, driving by, saw me struggling to push her out. He turned around, came back and helped me get the car out. Never met him before.

      There was a report of a snitch on a small business.
      Health officials and a Sheriff deputy showed up to “investigate.”
      The owner told them to piss off and come back with a warrant.

      Three (or is it four?) UpState NY Sheriff’s declared they would not enforce Gov Cuomo’s edict of 10 people or less for Thanksgiving.
      Comrade Cuomo was not happy about that.

      AND, just read the Supreme Court of the US has ruled Comrade Cuomo’s edict about limiting religious gatherings were un-Constitutional.

        It bothers me that 4 SCJs don’t believe in the right to religion

        I think that ruling will give some the idea that packing the court in the name of public safety is a good idea.

      Just wondering… there a cash reward for snitching? If so, how much?

      Would hate to think that some people are just doing it for free. Not even “ho”s do that.

      That’s a good one. LOL.  We had a few neighbors that had over 10 people here in our neighborhood. That’s their business. No one reported anyone. We had 9 here and it would have been 16 if 4 didn’t live on west coast and one in military that wasn’t able to leave base and another that had plans to be in Delaware already. But we had a great time. No issues. Our next door neighbor had all her family and the family of one living across the street from us. I think they had maybe 20 people there. Didn’t effect me any. I don’t tattle on neighbors. We already had that issue with 2 neighbors long before the corona virus. They were nothing but trouble makers and glad they are no longer living around here. Neighborhood has been much better though we do have a lot of new ones that have moved in that keep to themselves pretty much. They just don’t want to hang around with the older folks that still live here.

    • #31138

      Snitching? I live in the city,just heard 5 gunshots. Should I call it in? I’m not going to, they were at least a block away. I called in a shots fired a few weeks ago, the police were down there all night. Turned out a 17yo girl was killed – right in front of my house. I think it’s about time to move.

    • #31141

      I am waiting to see if state and local governments will start offering “rewards,” to those who snitch and provide accurate information.  I am also curious to see if the impending loss of unemployment benefits for millions of Americans at the end of the year, will raise the numbers of people snitching on their neighbors and colleagues.

    • #31179

      <p style=”text-align: right;”>There is a part of me which cannot believe it either, but then there is a part which can. On Monday I plan to check on a piece of info I received last week. Our governor has reportedly unilaterally mandated that anyone who has a conceal and carry will be charged with a felony if found ignoring Covid rules (NC). All other violators will be charged with a misdemeanor. What does one have to do with the other? I read this morning that Vermont school systems plan to question children about their family’s Thanksgiving gathering prior to allowing them to re-enter school on Monday. WTH? The red, white, and blue is still flying here in my city. What has changed constitutionally of which I am not aware?</p>

        Good question about what does one have to with the other.
        Only answer I can come up with, government over reach and their desire to impose their will on you.

    • #31183

      Vermont’s governor is so on board with interrogating children that she went on national television to boast about it.

      • #31185

        From the article:

        “From my standpoint, this is fair warning to those of you who are planning to have gatherings from outside your household for Thanksgiving,” Scott added. “If you don’t want your kids to have to transition to remote learning and quarantine for a seven-day period, maybe you ought to make other plans.”

        Is it just me or the sheer arrogance in that statement disgusting?

      • #31187
        Matt In Oklahoma

        It’s arrogant but The People have allowed it to become so. Course correction is needed

      • #31264

        They wouldnt be interrogating mine.

      • #31275
        Crow Bar

        I’d tell mine to blatantly lie to their face.
        Then, when they call me, I would repeat the same lie.

      I dont celebrate British Colonial Ineptitude , aka Thanksgiving .I’m not British , and I’m thankful every day . I do like the two paid days off though .

    • #31192

      Does all this tell you what our country is about to become.

      Here is something I have posted on another forum and not sure that I have posted it here or not..  Put pretty much sums up what’s coming down the pipes. Think of all that has been going on behind the Corona virus. Here in VA our Gov. is trying hard to take away our 2nd amendments and other rights. Don’t know who wrote it but very fitting for what is going on.

      Catching wild pigs:

      There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.

      The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime.

      In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: Do you know how to catch wild pigs? The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

      The young man said it was no joke. You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down on one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again.. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs which are used to the free corn start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them an catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

      The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America. The government keeps pushing Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

      One should always remember two truths: There is no such things as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. If you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, then you might want to send this to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you might want to delete this.

      But God help us all if the gate slams shut.

      Quote for the day

      The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who cote for a living.

      This is what will happen in a Biden administration.  The gate is about to be slammed shut and we will ALL be caught up in it.  I pray that Trump will somehow be able to prove the fraud in our voting system and win this election for a second term. At least that would give us four more years to figure out a plan for what is coming in 2024 if we have another term of Harris, Clinton or any other criminal politicians.  Socialism and Communism is on the rise here with a Biden/Harris ticket. Civil unrest is coming.

      My neighbor-calling-the-gestapo-on-me moment was back in June of this year.

      Not gonna lie: Still burnt about it.

      I was out for my nightly walk (8-9pm) when one of my neighbors called into the police about “A suspicious person” walking around the neighborhood. Why that late? Because it’s too hot earlier in the day. My area has never had nighttime curfews, either. And I’d been taking those nightly walks since mid-April.

      Got the knock at the door at 10:30pm; as you can imagine, I was panicked; who had it out for me? I’ve always gotten along with my neighbors up until now! Even since the lockdowns started!…not that I ever cross paths with any of them much anymore, anyway; they’re all afraid of getting sick from human contact.

      Figured out who it was, eventually. Left her my contact info (phone, e-mail, etc.) and a note at her front door, stating, “I know it was you. You can apologize to me whenever you like.” Obviously, that hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I’ll leave her another note? It’s been 6 months. She can call it her Christmas gift from me.

      I’ve lived where I have for the past 6 years, while that neighbor had more-or-less just moved in, and she was already scared of the neighborhood. Guess she should’ve stayed where she came from; evidence suggests she moved from the Northeast. I’ve NEVER had the neighbors call the police on me before. Not for any reason. First time for everything, right? And this has been a year of a lot of first times…

      I like how we get these new neighbors, who think they can just move in and start running the show, like we have illegal immigrants trying to move into our country and take it over – turned out she was Spanish/Mexican/Hispanic.

      Still trying to figure out how to get back at her; I’d like an excuse to call the police on her myself. Her kids are always bumping around, making noise, slamming doors, etc., down stairs; she’s literally the unit right below me.

      It’s already too much that I feel like a prisoner in my own home, but now I feel like a foreigner, if not a criminal, in the place I’ve lived for the past 6 years.

      I haven’t walked around my neighborhood since then; not after nightfall, OR earlier in the day. I’ve taken to walking around a local park, instead. But there’s a playground there. Only a matter of time before some overzealous pearl-clutching nutcase accuses me of trying to abduct their children, right?

      I’d move, but can’t really afford much else in the area, and rather still like my place, if not for that new neighbor. After having been here for the past 6 years, I’ve grown rather accustomed to things around here.

      Been trying to write and film a vlog about this that I can post on YouTube…

      P.S. Guess where I moved from, and why.
