Patriot Retort: I recently watched a rather mediocre mini-series about the 1605 Gunpowder Plot starring Kit Harrington (AKA Jon Snow from “Game of Thrones”) in which the first episode featured a Catholic woman getting tortured by crushing.
Good heavens, it was brutal.
They laid her on the floor of the scaffold, placed a large plank over her body, and then began adding heavy weights to the top one at a time, stopping after each to urge her to confess her crimes.
And each time she refused to confess, another weight was added, then another, and another. First, the crushing weight prevented her from breathing. Then, eventually, with her bones broken and her organs squashed, the woman mercifully died.
There’s only so much crushing a body can take before it collapses.
During the night, the US Senate voted to advance another spending bill that will spend hundreds of billions of dollars we don’t have on a “Climate Change” agenda that won’t work. On top of the crushing weight of bogus “Green Energy” spending, this bill also has the added weight of tax increases, an increased number of IRS agents, and more spending on healthcare.
And because these assholes can’t resist creepy Orwellian cravenness, they named this massive tax and spend bill “The Inflation Reduction Act.” more
