As many of us are battling the onslaught of new and sometimes dizzying and bazaar regulations, school curriculums, and mandates, I had a question.
So I set out to find out answers to questions I felt were clouded by an array of conflicting news media, I wanted to hear from the very people that were changing the rules on a daily basis and what supported their decisions. So I started the Transparency Project and rolled up my sleeves and sent out a barrage of Public Records Act requests to ask for the government to show what in fact sculpted their direction toward the general public.
I am looking for accountability so I am working with local newspapers to track the progress of these requests as I make my way through the complexity of this ever-changing world.
Questions like: What does the government have in the way of studies to support wearing a mask as a legitimate way to stop the spread of Covid 19 when the very box they are sold in has a warning right on the box that says THIS MASK DOES NOT STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID 19 or any other virus. And if it’s not to stop the spread what are they for? What studies support this mass psychosis being hoisted on the general public?
As I read through the sometimes troubling and disturbing new curriculum that states all white people are inherently oppressors, I wondered what studies were conducted and what evidence supports such a finding that we would subject our children to this without proper studies? What long-term studies were conducted to not only prove this is true. And what could be the effects on our children and their self-esteem to be singling them out on them in the long run?
Did the Constitution change in the last year if all men are created equal when did we find we had strong enough evidence to support that no longer was the case and that one race is oppressors and one is oppressed?
What studies support children learning about alternative lifestyles as early as 5 years old? Or why should an 11-year old learn how to put a condom on a Styrofoam penis? Such a drastic approach to learning needs to be backed up by scientific studies to prove it is for the overall benefit of our children.
So I asked. I welcome you the general public to follow along as I get answers to some of the most pressing questions that appear to only be an attempt to alter the fabric of a country we love.
