Conservativism at its Best

For the Corona virus war we are seeing the best that Conservatism brings to the table.

1. It warms the cockles of my heart to hear "government and the private sectors partnering."
    Each day the president brought in CEO who let us know what they could do. 

2. It warms the cockles of my heart to hear   "Federal    Government  and Local  governments partnering."

Are you as impressed as I am to see the state governors and local mayors and other officials stepping up to the plate and doing what is their responsibility? Super impressive.

3. It warms the cockles of my heart to hear the regulations being removed.

Can you imagine if the Democrats were in charge. They would create whole new bungling bureaucracies adding new stifling regulations. These two latter things were what
caused us not to be prepared.

CORONAVIRUS

   When Israel abandoned their God, this was His response:

"I’ll give them over to fearful timidity—even the rustle of a leaf will throw them into a panic. They’ll run here and there, back and forth, as if running for their lives even though no one is after them, tripping and falling over one another in total confusion." Leviticus 26:36-39 (MSG)

OPERATION STONEGARDEN

      Lieutenant Sarkazein Jr. is helping a border town municipal police department set up their participation in Operation Stonegarden including their reserve police department. This city is right on the border. The Rio Grande runs exactly next to the city. The city is a suburban population of 6,500 and is within about 10 minutes of a larger border town population of over 200,000. Houses were being broken into to the point where the residence had to leave food on their front porches to keep from being invaded. The city had only 2 full-time officers, hence the reserve. The Border Patrol pays police officers, sheriff's and Constable's deputies, and troopers, to help them patrol the border. The Border Patrol even answers 911 calls close to the border. This border town is TRUMP country. They wanted to pay for their own wall if the feds wouldn't do it. The new mayor was kidnapped while visiting relatives on the other side of the border. They have had enough and are building up a 30 man police department of mostly reserves. Reserve peace officers in Texas have the same 800 hours academy as full-time peace officers.
