And yes, the Karens will obey, rant on social media, and snitch. Where are the men? Oh, that’s right… “men” are the worst karens of all.

  1. With a sense of black humor PHILADELPHIA, the city of brotherly love, has become the city of BIG BROTHER and a cauldron of hate. It is the perfect place for the devil to make his headquarters and initiate his evil works–like corrupting the election and total control of its citizens. Hell is Philadelphia. Will the citizens do anything about it? Maybe. Will the Catholic clergy challenge? Probably not.

  2. I watched the press conference yesterday and here were a few observations:

    1. The mayor, early in the conference announced that we had “flattened the curve back in the Spring.” Um, o.k. so why again have we been locked down in various stages since March?

    2. Dr. Farley said that “we would have to tie ourselves over until a vaccine is ready.” So we’re basically being held hostage until the so-called vaccine is ready.

    3. In a textbook example of diabolical narcissism, when questioned about the financial impact these measures would have on restaurant and retail merchants, the mayor deflected blame to the Pennsylvania State Legislature and Congress for not giving him enough money.

    Oh and by the way, the very week before this, the mayor and dozens of other “city leaders” attended a “victory party” for Biden on the grounds of Independence Mall. Hundreds of people, in close proximity to each other attended. And on Election Day, hundreds more – without condemnation by the city – held a “dance party” outside the convention center.

    This will be a big test for Catholics in the city and, if it goes there, the greater Archdiocese. How many of us are going to choose Christ over Cesar?

  3. Oh, there “might” be unemployment and business going under–just the price to pay to not catch this bad flu. Since when is it the job of a mayor to be such a dictator? People can do things at their own risk. How many suicides? How much abuse? It is all, all, from the pit of hell. And do not even think of enjoying yourself in any way, shape or form unless you are the mayor or other privileged ones. Time to get out of Philly. Any courageous priests there to allow the worship of God at the Holy Sacrifice?

  4. Hmmm starting to get a bit apathetic about all this. Ann just posted on her website about how ultimately they’re going to take over and ultimately have us all tortured and killed. Um yay?

  5. Funny how freedoms that are explicitly in the Constitution (peaceably assemble, religion, speech, bear arms) can get trampled at the drop of a hat, but fake ones (abortion, gay marriage) are protected at all costs.
