    Leftist Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey made a bold claim on Wednesday about guns that even had hard-Left Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison raising his eyebrows.

    Frey, who has been burnishing his leftist credentials for years, perhaps was channeling his inner Barack Obama. In 2016 Obama made the startling claim at a memorial service for Dallas police officers killed by sniper fire, "We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book."

    Or Frey may have been channeling Obama circa 2015, when Obama stated, "There are neighborhoods where it's easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable."

    "The underlying issue is that there are areas in the Twin Cities, in Minneapolis, where it is easier to buy a gun than a fresh apple," Frey said. "Why is that? There aren't gun shops in Minneapolis."

    In 2020, Frey proclaimed March 10 as Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. Frey stated that his action was taken to honor the local abortion provider, Whole Woman's Health, saying, "Every day, abortion providers like Whole Woman's Health deliver high quality care in the face of harassment and threats to abortion access at the federal and local levels. I'm proud to recognize today as Abortion Provider Appreciation Day to celebrate Whole Woman's Health as an essential part of our community."

    Frey tweeted, "The professionals who ensure women can access safe reproductive healthcare do so despite threats of violence & the persistent push to undermine Roe v. Wade. That's why today is Abortion Provider Appreciation Day in Minneapolis." March 10 was chosen because on March 10, 1993, Dr. David Gunn, an abortionist in Pensacola, Florida, was shot and killed.

    Frey's announcement followed the St. Paul City Council unanimously passing a resolution to recognize Abortion Providers Appreciation Day in St. Paul on March 4.

    The resolution stated, "The Supreme Court of the United States now contains a majority of Justices who may not interpret the Constitution to provide protection for the right to end a pregnancy and may overturn or severely limit Roe v. Wade, which includes the threat of women patients and abortion providers being arrested and sent to jail."

    Between February 26 and April 5, Catholics in St. Paul and Minneapolis mark the 40 Days for Life Twin Cities, an annual Lenten prayer campaign to end abortion.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
