Invariably, you see TV, radio, and even grocery store public address systems saying “Attention shoppers, please wear your face diaper and treat your fellow shoppers as if they are carrying the Bubonic Plague and could kill you on the spot by merely glancing in your direction.” The announcement continues: “Because after all, we are all in this together.” All in this together? Please!
We are not in this together. Government edicts have actually divided us into a nation of Haves and Have Nots. On one side, we have people in the “essential” portions, which does insulate them somewhat from some of the financial burdens many have faced because of COVID. Truck drivers, grocery store workers, many factory workers who are producing a product or service in demand, are mostly doing fine. Along with them are those individuals who are lucky enough to have positions that allow telecommuting.
And that’s fine. These Americans are working and they should get paid and get paid well. Additionally, there are government employees at all levels continuing to get paychecks like clockwork with little-to-no burden-sharing there. What’s more, there’s not a lot of value-added that have given me pause and others, too. I’m speaking specifically about teachers in certain areas. I’ll delve more into that shortly.
The former Speaker of the House from Georgia, Newt Gingrich, PhD., has a very interesting article out regarding IPOTUS Joe Biden. In case you are wondering, the “I” stands for “incompetence.” Newt’s premise is Joe Biden’s actions since the inauguration have been herding more and more people back into the corner of former President Donald Trump. One can picture Trump sitting down in a gold room at Mar-a-Lago saying “I told you so!”
The Washington elites in the establishment still can’t comprehend the dynamic that allows Trump to withstand constant attacks from the Left and the media without losing his core supporters. It has strengthened their resolve and dedication to Trump. This drives the Left insane! At this point, the key to Trump’s following is President Joe Biden
Every time Biden signs another left-wing executive order (supporting tax-funded abortion, effectively eliminating Title IX protection for women’s sports, killing tens of thousands of jobs in pursuit of a radical climate agenda) Trump supporters are reminded they have no alternative.
Personally, I like Dr. Gingrich. He’s spot-on in his assessment. Moreover, he points out something many have often thought of. The haughty, condescending, “I’m better than you” aura the Left projects onto others is absolutely insufferable. What’s more, they don’t see what they’re doing and how the react is playing throughout the country. The apt description of coastal elites is astute.
To this point, Gingrich provides a helpful link to a Montgomery County, Maryland school system memo sent out in an email to parents. From the memo (emphasis, mine):
MCPS Hiring Classroom Monitors
As we prepare for our return to an in-person learning experience, we anticipate a need for adults to support the supervision of students. If you know any adults with a high school diploma/GED who would be interested in monitoring students at $15.72 per hour, please encourage them to apply to be considered for the position of classroom monitor. Duties include monitoring classrooms for teachers who are providing virtual instruction to students in the building and supporting in-person teachers. Interested individuals need to apply
on https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/departments/careers/ We do anticipate the need for classroom monitors at our school however, we cannot guarantee our site would be the location all interested individuals would be assigned to work.
Speaker Gingrich once again, sums up, most eloquently:
Note that the teachers refuse to go back to work in the schools, but it seems safe enough for common, untrained parents to monitor the students in-person.
This is more of the same corrosive division from the Left. There’s a single set of rules, work environments, and even personal risk elites will absolutely accept and will condemn others who don’t align. The rubes in flyover states who are bitter clingers? Well, they can learn to code or perform some other menial labor for a teacher who can’t be bothered to go to work.
