BB&T closed the Millbrooke branch in Hopkinsville, KY permanently. With the Ft Campbell Blvd branch also closed today. This was the only open branch in town. I closed my checking account because of sheit like this. I still have a mortgage and I would close that too if I could. BB&T does not deserve one dollar of my business. Every customer in this line probably feels the same way.
A tsunami of libertarian action took place in Hopkinsville Kentucky on December 4, 2020 when the Christian County Health Department suspended the food service license for a local restaurant.
The difference between an open tent on guidelines given from the CCHD and tent open 50%, which was said but never showed to us. The excuse the Health Department used is, the flyer is wrong but what I am telling you is right. We called the state health department for guidelines. Which we were directed to do so by our local health department. They had no idea to the references. Neither did building and codes which were referenced to call on the guideline print out that the health department gave to us.The Village Facebook page, viewed 12/11/2020
The restaurant followed guidelines as they were written, but that is never good enough. The Governor and HD ask you and your customers to sit in a cold, drafty tent outside in freezing weather we know that no person in their right mind would ever do that. We were surprised though when we came back and found that you still had a few customers left sitting inside of your tent. So that means we have to ratchet the requirements further and tell you that you must have two sides of your tent completely open.
Support your small businesses, support those businesses that are being discriminated against because they don’t belong to a MEGA-CORP restaurant chain.
Especially Support Businesses That Draw a Line and Say….
THIS FAR AND NO FARTHER

Male “Karen” Cancels His Flooring Contractor
This opinion piece was published by the Hoptown Chronicle on June 23, 2020. I read it and thought neither the author nor the contractor were acting rationally. The author lives within an Establishment belief system that probably includes listening to NPR, network or cable news.
In the United States, 122,000 people have died to date from COVID-19 in roughly four months, versus at most half than many from over the course of year from the flu. If facts matter.Mark Neikirk (Hoptown Chronicle)
There is a significant difference between dying while infected with COVID-19 and dying of it. I already wrote about the story of an infant dying of SIDS, but the death was counted as COVID-19 because “CDC regulations”. The mainstream media lie and gaslight the public because the binary Red vs. Blue structure makes profit for them and destroys relationships for everyone else. The only way to see reality is to leave that structure entirely. Forget the CNNMSNBCFOXNBCABCCBS network, Fox News is corporate news just like CNN and both follow the same script.
Unprepared Contractor Doesn’t Get Work
A flooring contractor came to our house this week to measure, wearing no mask.Mark Neikirk (Hoptown Chronicle)
Our dialogue went like this:
â€œDo you have one?â€
â€œOK. We can reschedule. Will you call?â€
â€œDonâ€™t know. Iâ€™ve been doing this since this nonsense started and I havenâ€™t seen anyone sick yet.â€
â€œThank you, but we have friends who have died and been on ventilators, and we have compromised immune systems in our household.â€
â€œYeah, well, how many of them had underlying issues â€” and (he had a big number) people died from the flu and they didnâ€™t say crap about that.â€
Being self-employed myself I see several problems with this conversation that make it unrealistic. First, I don’t believe any self-employed individual would go to a job site without having a mask available in their vehicle. The contractor can believe that masks are stupid and unnecessary, but if your customer wants you to wear a mask then you wear the mask while your on location. Second, the contractor tries to justify his unpreparedness by challenging the customer in a political argument. Don’t discuss politics with a customer. Who does this?!
The author of this editorial lives in a mainstream news bubble. Which he has a right to believe what he wants to, you can’t cancel me for doing the same thing. The contractor in this story arrived on-site unprepared and the homeowner (his employer) will find another to do the work. Simple, happens everyday with or without COVID-19. Frankly, I don’t believe the author had this conversation with a contractor anyway.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear and state Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack said the virus was unlikely to be the primary factor resulting in the childâ€™s death, but reporting methodologies mandate the case be listed as a coronavirus death. Stack reiterated that most children who contract COVID-19 do not see significant, long-term health damage.Hoptown Chronicle
Different article this time talking about a falsified trend line increasing. The same child is mentioned in one paragraph.
Stack said that if not for the pandemic, the death would have been attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. But the death will be attributed to COVID-19 because the infant tested positive for the virus, which may or may not have contributed to the childâ€™s death, Stack said. The truth may never be known, he added.Hoptown Chronicle
It should also be noted that there is a huge increase in compensation the hospital receives for COVID-19 patients versus non-COVID19 patients.
PHASE ONE: The general public of the United States has been experiencing a fear campaign designed by Mr. Burns’ like nothing in recent memory. Since at least March 11, 2020 the public was told that millions of people would die if they did not shutdown every aspect of life and shelter-in-place in their homes. After four plus weeks of being “safer at home” millions of people have not died, but that does not matter. Mr. Burns’ plan has achieved the effect of killing millions of people without actually doing it. Superbly efficient! The primary successes of Phase One being the shuttering of Churches nationwide, desolation of large businesses, and small businesses across this country.
Separation and Division
PHASE TWO: Public gatherings at churches, social clubs, and even casual meetings at the local store are natural behaviors that promote social cohesion and unity. That is why Mr. Burns’ plan will mandate the concept of “Social Distancing” the goal being to physically and psychically separate one person from every other person. The Committee will also encourage the use of social media and technology-based forms of interaction because preliminary research indicates it enhances the affect of isolation and loneliness on individuals.
In Phase One fear of an unseen, amorphous enemy (Coronavirus later re-branded to Covid-19) was introduced which The Committee can leverage to direct public suspicion on to any arbitrary group or class of people. The most important group which needs to be undermined immediately will be the skeptics and people who refuse to accept the programming The Committee broadcasts via mainstream news.
Future Control Methods
PHASE THREE: While the Public will be released from their confinement in due time. The Committee will continue directing the safe behaviors necessary after Covid-19 extreme measures have been lifted. Behavior modification that began in Phase one will be monitored by three mechanisms: Vaccination/testing, Contact Tracing, and Safe Citizen reporting.
- Vaccination and Testing – As a requirement for returning to work every citizen will be required to have proof of their immunity. At the time of vaccination the citizen will be marked with a quantum dot tattoo. Alternatively, if the citizen tests positive for the Covid-19 antibody they will receive a digital certificate.
- Mobile contact tracing – Google and Apple have already developed the OS-level framework needed for contact tracing, but each smart phone user will also download a “Safe Citizen” health app. The app will provide the user with a color code Green, Yellow, or Red. Red will mean that the user must immediately self-isolate at home for fourteen days. If sixty percent of the population downloads the app voluntarily it will not become mandatory.
- Safe Citizen reporting – The Committee will develop incentives to encourage friends and neighbors to report to authorities when they witness willful non-compliance. Example: K.A.R.E.N. developed by Mayor De Blasio.
Within a population of 320 million people in the United States. If we have ‘X’ number of homeless people why can’t we build ‘X’ number of tiny homes? Done. Homelessness has been eliminated! Well…. we know that isn’t how life works. The reason why it doesn’t work is the same as why Liberalism fails.
Adam Curry interviewed Alan Graham, the CEO of Mobile Loaves and Fishes and the Community First Village in Austin, TX. Below I will quote portions of the podcast, but it is highly encouraged to listen to the podcast itself.
