The Best and the Worst

What America has been going through the past few weeks has brought out the best, and the worst in our beleaguered nation.

The dedication and determination of the medical profession has been above and beyond as doctors, nurses, EMT personnel, and the maintenance staffs at the medical facilities daily walk into the belly of the beast, constantly in danger and living under forced diligence of self-preservation where a faulty face mask, forgotten eyewear or any slip up in stringent sanitary protocol could result in contracting a deadly disease.

The inhuman hours, the life and death decisions, constant exposure and seeing so much misery day in and day out, takes an inner strength and compassion for human suffering very few of us possess, and every American should be thankful to God for these special people.

The police and fire departments who are exposed to their own kind of danger on top of dealing with people who could well be infected, EMT crews whose jobs require a hands-on approach and the fastidious attention to self and equipment to avoid contracting not just coronavirus, but who knows what they’ll be facing on any given call.

The truckers who keep the grocery store shelves stocked, the gasoline flowing and the medicine druggists need to fill prescriptions supplied.

The farmers and processors who make sure the nation is fed.

These dedicated people demonstrate the best of America, the kind of people who helped to build and maintain the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Then there’s the other people, the scammers who victimize the most vulnerable and helpless among us, the gougers who get their hands on scarce and vital products and jack the price up to ten times its worth, the hoarders who buy much more than they need with no thought or concern about who they are depriving.

Then there are the politicians who try to gain political advantages by playing the blame game, who lack the honesty to admit their own faults.

Nobody personifies the worst in America more than Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff who are, even now in the middle of a situation that threatens America’s health and economy and it affects every man, woman and child in the nation, are making plans to hold a hearing of President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The words I would need to express the contempt I have for them are not in my vocabulary.

Yes, the same Nancy who encouraged San Franciscans to “Visit Chinatown, we think it’s very safe in Chinatown,” as the Coronavirus was beginning to take hold and people rightfully feared going to Chinatown or other areas for fear of contracting it.

And the same lying, leaking, sniveling reprobate, Adam Schiff, who told the American people that there was proof of collusion against Trump, started an investigation into a phone call the president had with the president of Ukraine, only to make an even bigger fool of himself when the unexpected happened and the president released the transcript of the letter.

I liken Pelosi, Schiff and all the rest of the Democrats who support this madness to deserters who walk away from the life and death battle the country is fighting and pursue their own sordid purposes.

At a time when America desperately needs “all hands on deck,” the Democrats have chosen to take another shot at tearing the nation apart, and the sad thing is. They know it’s just another fruitless witch hunt.

Thank God we had a man in office who immediately stopped flights from China and other heavily infected parts of the world, got together an aid package for the workers, which - by the way - the Democrats tried to load down with frivolous giveaways, holding up checks to America’s workers by weeks.

Have you seen the homeless enclaves in both Northern and Southern California where the city streets are littered with used hypodermic needles, garbage, human feces, rats and disease?

Well, Pelosi and Schiff each have one in their respective constituencies.

Why not an investigation of why they have done absolutely nothing about cleaning up these potential hot zones? Already there are cases of the virus showing up in these festering garbage heaps.

Gag on a gnat, swallow a camel.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem. 

God Bless America

The Lake Of Fire
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie if Pelosi, Schiff and the rest of their demonrat followers do not have a come to Jesus meeting soon the will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire, along with child molesters, rapists, sodomites and the like. The misses tells me you shouldn't wish you life away especially at our age, but I cannot wait until the day that the world sees the truth about what China and the lap dog media, including Fox in some instances has done to fuel the fear, fright and phobias in these trying times. No media outlets reminds the people of what President Trump said on February 04, 2020 during the State Of The Union address, “Protecting Americans’ health also means fighting infectious diseases. We are coordinating with the Chinese government and working closely together on the coronavirus outbreak in China. My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.” If my recollection is correct these democrats where to busy trying to impeach the President that night and the wicked witch from San Francisco was busy ripping up the speech, which in itself should be criminal......nuff said God Bless Plowboy

toddler trump
Charlie - agree with the first half of your letter. Regarding the politics, your analysis is distorted. Aside from the inaccuracies of Fox News, Hannity, Limbaugh, which would take another post, let's review some of the statements by toddler trump listed below: January20: "I know more about viruses than anyone.” January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.” February 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.” February 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!” February 25: “CDC and my Administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.” February 25: “I think that's a problem that’s going to go away… They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.” February 26: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.” February 26: “We're going very substantially down, not up.” February 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” February 28: “We're ordering a lot of supplies. We're ordering a lot of, uh, elements that frankly we wouldn't be ordering unless it was something like this. But we're ordering a lot of different elements of medical.” March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don't think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?” March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.” March 4: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.” March 5: “I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.” March 5: “The United States… has, as of now, only 129 cases… and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!” March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.” March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re there. And the tests are beautiful…. the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.” March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.” March 6: “I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn't our fault.” March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.” March 9: “This blindsided the world.” March 13: “National emergency, two big words.” Elections matter.

Pelosi's Games
When I first saw that story about another committee I about blew a gasket and at a time like this only shows Dimocrats=CCP and the value of American lives is little.I can only hope that the majority of the Nation sees through what is total political BS once again.My belief in the Ole Man upstairs has a plan that soon rights the wrongs the Dimocrat has forced upon this Nation.

“...a man in office who immediately stopped flights from China...[and] got together an aid package for the workers...”
Like I said before, deceptive people are going to be right about some things. Because, among other reasons, Trump has been doing well dealing with this crisis, people will trust him too much with other issues. Plus, most politicians would be dealing with this crisis well, especially someone like Ted Cruz or John Kasich. There’s nothing special about the way Trump has been handling the coronavirus pandemic. -- Tru Cola

I retired as a critical care RN 2 years ago from the VA Administration. Im 68, I worked 39 years of ICU nursing in 4 states over the years. My filipino wife has worked 25 years as a critical care nurse where we met in the hospital. She is 63 still goes to work here at Sharp Hospital in Chula Vista Calif. I worry about her but she is a angel to care for the sick and dying. If the VA wants me back to care for are vets Im there.WHY IM REDWHITE AND BLUE I LOVE MY COUNTRY.

Charlie, I agree with you about the "heroes"during this pandemic, although I think that the grocery stockers and cashiers are a bit more on the front lines than the truck drivers. Your take on the "villains" of the story is wrong. Democrats were quick to draft and pass recovery bills before the recess, leaving much of the process to Senate Republicans. Negotiations were bipartisan and acceptable to both sides. Dems have said that hearings will likely take place after the worst of the COVID situation is over, but they are fulfilling their responsibility as a co-equal branch of government to provide oversight. Trump has proven that he cannot be trusted, that he takes no responsibility and is adamant that no-one should be overseeing his work (or lack thereof). The idea that making sure he and his cronies (e.g., Mnuchin) do not mishandle the "slush fund" (corporate bailout fund) without oversight is good government, not treason.

Dedication and Determination
Bravo! What a response from true patriots to just giving of tokens, meals, blood, cash, gift cards, hands waving, hearts proud to assist truck drivers, emergency personnel, medical technicians, nurses and doctors..... refreshing & positive and heart warming. Then we run into the worst - self-dealing, crooked and unable to be truthful, sneaky and sinister... the Pelosis, Schiffs, Schumers, etc., Anti-ICE and Sanctuary City supporters plus insider-traders (both aisles). Thank you for just putting the facts out there.

Best vs. Worse
Well said, Charlie. I'm not sure who outnumbers whom but the ones I really hold my animus for are the scheming politicians who extort anything for their collective political gain -- even when they are exposed. Of course I'm referring to Democrats. The more dire the situation, the more extortion they apply. (and I'd bet their basements are chuck full of toilet paper and masks too.) There is a special place. ~NIMOC

Pelosi is worse than Schiff.
At least as far as the COVID-19 hearing against Trump is concerned. Not to let Schiff off the hook, but he’s just another zealot. Pelosi crossed the line into hypocrisy. If Trump gets in trouble from this hearing, let’s hope Schiff turns his back on Pelosi and there’s a hearing against her. Maybe both Trump AND Pelosi are guilty of rejecting concern of the coronavirus early on. -- Tru Cola

Expanding On My Response to Claudia
The more we praise our elected officials, the less we realize that there’s more to how society functions than government policy. None of our elected officials should be celebrated. That includes Trump. (That includes the democrats, too.) -- Tru Cola

Per the last 2 responses
Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi were completely obsessed with the impeachment hoax. Dems and media were the same. If our intelligence warned us, well, Schiff is chair of house intell committee. And he didn't know or see it ciming? Give me a break. Until Feb 5th they hijacked the House and Senate. Yet Schifty now wants to investigate our response to the China Coronavirus?

Think about what we are doing to ourselves.
The Bill of Rights were not given to the people by Congress they were granted by God, equally and to all. The Bill of Rights was given to Congress by the people with the understanding that government is to keep their hands off these rights. Freedom to worship, speak freely and peaceable assembly are under attack and it seems that few people care. If the government is allowed to tell you and I that Easter Sunday is called off what is to stop them from closing churches altogether? Don't say it can't happen here because it is happening here! Go to church this Sunday if you are sick or have been around sick folks stay home or stay outside and sing and praise God, revel in his power to renew our world and our souls. Imagine the power in the message that we would send to the ruling class. If we don't stop this crap now it will get worse and it will happen sooner than you think. DeploraBill the Northwoods Drifter

Sammy Hagar Interview
I have been the biggest Charlie Daniels fan in the world for well over 40 years and I just wanted to say that I appreciate Charlie changing the words to Long Haired Country Boy such that he didn’t talk about getting stoned and drunk and changing the word to “dang.” I am a Christian and am proud to be a Charlie fan!

I agree entirely; update ...
Since this was written, the mainstream media has been accusing Trump of knowing more earlier than previously revealed.....and doing nothing. this antiTrump/antiSemitic media has also attacked whatever promising treatments are being allowed, by Trump, on a COMPASSIONATE basis to dying patients! (Wow!) In fact, Trump was trying not be early-alarmist, just as Obama had done with H1N1 when hIs ugly ass was in office. Also, Trump is smart enough to put off the eventual retaliation against Communist China which MUST follow after this is dealt with. I pray this virus mostly takes lefties and other antiSemites from this mortal coil. I WILL certainly vote a straight republican ticket from now on, as I will never forgive liberals for playing a game of chicken with our lives, our health, our economy, our FREEDOM.

Long and joyous life
God Bless you, Charlie Daniels! I've loved your music and integrity since the '70s. If you see this you might remember me from Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan. I saw you after the concert back in the early '90s and you used an engraver that I had brought to the show to autograph my brass guitar shaped belt buckle. And you gave me and my wife a big hug too. I'll never forget it.

“Schiff is chair of house intell committee.” I overlooked that. My mistake. Still, Pelosi’s comment about Chinatown makes her hypocrisy more obvious. -- Tru Cola

Another Response to “Idiotcy Redux” by Jeff
Do you ever eat out at a local diner instead of a place like Denny’s or McDonald’s, saying you want to support “the little guy”? I think most of us are this way. Obama shows support for the little guy, and that’s why many people trust him too much with other things, including too much trust in HOW he supports the little guy. -- Tru Cola

More to Blame Than Trump, Pelosi, or Schiff
Perhaps you could say Bill Clinton, if you want to blame an elected official (for his support of free trade). Maybe Bush43 and Obama as well. But ultimately, it’s big businesses. They’re the ones who can afford the bigger campaign donations, supporting politicians who’ll allow them to save money by having their products made in countries that allow cutting corners. We need to support small businesses. -- Tru Cola
