As has become tradition here at Stilton's Place over the years, we're taking a break from the news to present a heartwarming Father's Day offering: two inspirational children's stories written long, long ago by Stilton's father. Which explains a lot...

Okay, we WANTED to take today off, but some things just can't pass without comment - although that seems to be exactly what our mainstream media is doing.
Specifically, we have a monumental problem with Joe Biden's statement in Geneva in which he explained to the world how rights work in the United States: "We don't derive our rights from the government. We possess them because we're born. Period. And we yield them to a government."
No, Joe, we don't yield our rights to the government or anyone else. That's rather the whole point of our nation, our history, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. But now, the president of the United States has spoken a little too much truth about how he and his political party view things: citizens have rights, but those rights must be surrendered to government authority. At which point, it's not so much "authority" as it is totalitarianism and oppression.
Of course, every Democrat in Washington knows that, but most of them also know not to ever say it out loud.
This wasn't one of Biden's typical gaffes or verbal tossed salads. There has been no "clarification" issued, and no apology for what should be considered a wildly incendiary statement. He just announced to the world that the United States is now under an authoritarian regime.
Despite the media blackout on this story, people need to hear about it, share it, and then make it very, very clear to those in Washington DC that real Americans have no intention of "yielding" to Marxist power plays.

Readers- As I mentioned on Monday, I'm taking the rest of the week off. My colonoscopy on Tuesday went fine, but the prep and the procedure were pretty tiring. And normally I'd say I just need a little time to lick my wounds, only that paints a picture that none of us wants to imagine.
I'll note that since it was June 15th, I also wrote another massive self-employment tax check to the government. I figured as long as I'm taking it up the poop-chute anyway, I might as well get it all done on the same day.
See you in the comments section! -Stilton
