Today I sent this letter to Jason Kenney and the UCP. I just wanted to thanks Jason for magnanimously allowing me to have 2 people in my home.
Yesterday you announced new rules governing who I am allowed to have in my home. I want to thank you for taking time to remind us that Albertans no longer have property rights. This must have been very important to you. After all you took time away from trampling, freedom of religion, association, and movement, just to remind us how much money we wasted paying for a home that apparently belongs to you.
I fully agree that the best way to handle a viral outbreak is by eliminating rights and employment. My support for this is so unwavering that I am willing to ignore that the outbreak peaked on Dec 3rd a full week before you trampled on more rights. In fact I am also willing to ignore that nothing you have done since March has any effect on the virus whatsoever.
Just as an aside, don’t you find it really strange that our current situation looks exactly like the outbreaks in jurisdictions that did absolutely nothing? They must be really lucky. How were they are able to get the virus to behave without any Tyranny? That is a mystery that we will never solve I guess.
I do have one question for you though. I confess I struggle a little to understand how Alberta Health services is stretched so thin caring for 150 sick people. AHS has over 100,000 employees. Surely some of them have “caring for the sick” in their job descriptions.
While we are on the topic of AHS, I guess I have a few more questions. We are told we must do everything possible to prevent the hospital from being overwhelmed. Why is the only solution to not allow people to use the hospital? Why can’t we increase the ICU capacity? Isn’t that what they would do in a capitalist society? Isn’t this a simple matter of supply responding to demand? Or, did I miss the vote in the legislature when we decided that Alberta would complete their slide in to socialism? Is that why you own my house now?
I like to think I can always find a bright side and certainly I can see how this is good for you. You no longer have to pretend; you are completely out of the closet. After all the trampling of rights no one will mistake you for a libertarian, or even a conservative, ever again. Doesn’t that feel liberating? There are other benefits as well. After everything you have done no one will even expect you to be competent either. You have got it made, you don’t have to pretend to be someone you are not and you don’t have to worry about doing a good job.
Frankly I am in awe over what you have already accomplished. In the last 9 months you have done 2 things that I never thought possible. You have destroyed individual rights and brought Alberta in line with the rest of the lunatic left in Canada. You have also proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Rachael Notley was not the worst Premier in our history. Wow, impressive.
