REMEMBER “IT’S A FREE COUNTRY!”?

Listen to Article

Once upon a time, many of the older Americans may remember when "It's a free country!" was a common phrase in the U.S., especially as a response to someone telling us we "really ought to do" something we really didn't care to do. 

"Don't try to dictate what I can or can't do," we'd defiantly declare. "It's a free country... the Land of the Free.”

That phrase isn't heard much nowadays, and it may be completely relegated to the past, if the attitude of government officials and media talking-heads — the folks who, in their great and superior wisdom, always know what's best for us — is any indication. With each passing day we seem to be less and less a free country, and the future isn't bright.

On the heels of President Biden & Co. announcing their intent to "go door-to-door" to ensure vaccination compliance comes word (via Fox News, on 10 July) that a CNN medical analyst has expressed her view that it's entirely too easy for individuals to choose not to be vaccinated and to then go about their lives while suffering no consequences for that decision.

Dr. Leana Wen, a former president of Planned Parenthood (the organization that's all about "the right to choose"!) and now a CNN medical contributor, has also urged the Biden administration to mandate vaccinations and to insist on some sort of "vaccine credentialing" in order to enforce compliance. "It needs to be hard for people to remain unvaccinated," she said, further suggesting that such people should be inundated with forms to fill out and subjected to weekly testing.

Another CNN medical analyst, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, hopped on the mandatory vaccination bandwagon, expressing his hope that private industries and organizations would require compliance from their workers and members.

TREND FORECAST: These so-called “experts,” many of whom in their college days probably sported T-shirts and bumper stickers that said "RESIST!" Nowadays they've traded those in for ones that say "OBEY!"

Trends Journal has, since the COVID War began, been warning about the looming specters of mandatory vaccination and vaccination passports, and the concomitant threat to our freedoms; one example is our article from 27 April, "U.S. VACCINATION CAMPAIGN: 'HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT."

    You Know what woke you up? Review this question by watching the Movie the Missouri Breaks. That’s the only way these tyrants will be stopped.

    We used to say that when we were kids, and I have used the phrase fairly recently and felt wistful.
