Editorial: I’m so completely confused

Kelli Ann Cox, Publisher, The Golden Hammer

I’m so completely confused.

I feel like I live in George Orwell’s 1984 where ““war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.” Here’s why I feel that way.

African-Americans are asking for segregation.

The local Democrats are for smaller government and anti-incorporation (self-annexation) of The Woodlands.

The country – the United States – founded on religious freedom now won’t allow you to go to church.

Government debt is the new prosperity.

Liquor stores are “essential businesses” but the government stopped you from getting a liver transplant.

Antifa Communists are getting cities to cut government spending.

Republicans are supporting martial law in the form of government-mandated shutdowns over a virus.

Conservatives are backing government healthcare.

Antifa liberals seem to support the Second Amendment by arming themselves with guns in the streets.

We’re paying people a lot of money to stay home from work.

Conservative Republicans are refusing to cut government spending to lighten the burden of property taxes.

Public schools have given up educating and turned instead to social and emotional learning.

Governor Greg Abbott has issued stay-at-home orders, but now he’s ordering that people evacuate from their homes. “Should I stay or should I go now?”

You can get drunk at a restaurant but not a bar.

I learned in school about Edmund Burke saying “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it,” but now it seems everyone wants to destroy all vestiges of earlier times in our history.

I fear arrest if I don’t wear a mask over my face going into the bank.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’d like to present the next act of our show entitled “The Four Corners of the Round Table.”
