You have your opinions. I have mine.
It is hard to believe that I live in America. By that I mean it is hard to believe that the America I grew up with – one where people were patriotic, respected the office of leaders, and never considered sabotaging the whole electoral system – is the one in which people are so divided and the party platforms are so morally different.
Now that I think about it, there was a time when this country was equally divided, even more so, and that was a time when we took up arms to kill our brothers at the other end of our carbines and canon. Some have said that’s where we are headed once more. I hope not.
But I wonder, without scouring the history books (that haven’t been revised by modern liberals), I wonder if the people of our nation back in the 1860’s were as angry, manipulative, disrespectful, self-serving, God-hating, perverse, and vindictive as they are today? I kinda doubt it.
I mean, from the history that I’ve read, both the North and the South had men and women of honor and principle who differed to the point of war, but did so with integrity. How else did we become the most powerful nation on Earth? A nation that could never move past a political defeat, or even a military one, could never later unify as a patriotic people to defeat the Nazis, the Imperial Japanese, and even the Russia of the Cold War.
So, for four years after an embarrassing and unexpected defeat, the Democrat Party and RINOs (Republican In Name Only) have done nothing but seethe with anger and resentment for President Trump and have sought, through any means necessary, to undermine the President, even at the expense of the American people.
The reason we are where we are today is not because of differing ideologies or political worldviews. The reason we are in the shape we are in this very moment, a state of utter confusion and distrust of the political and electoral system, is not because Donald Trump talked dirty in a locker room or tweeted something “un-presidential.”
The reason we are boarding up our stores, banks, pharmacies, and places of worship is not because we are being invaded by an army of locusts or facing down the barrel of a Cat5 hurricane.
The reason we are in this mess the day after the election is not because President Trump colluded with a foreign power, was an inept leader, or that he has been the worst and most embarrassing president ever.
The REAL reason we are where we are today, right this moment, is because an uninformed, maliciously-educated, biblically-illiterate electorate was lied to, mislead, manipulated, used as pawns, incited, and incentivized by a perennially-corrupt, morally-bankrupt, socially-manipulative, traitorous main-stream media whose sole purpose for the last four years has been to overturn the election of a man they knew would not push forward a socialistic, barbaric, evil, “progressive” agenda.
There is NO reason, other than because of fomented hatred for the current President, that a sane, informed, patriotic, educated, God-fearing public would vote to have a bona fide corrupt politician with cognitive disabilities, along with Che Guevara’s dream groupie, lead them!
If the main-stream news media, along with the supporting entertainment industry, both nothing more than extensions of the Democrat Party, would have given credit where credit is due, then a three-time Nobel Prize-nominated, promise-keeping, job-creating, peace deal making President would have no problem getting re-elected. But all the average person hears is “Orange Man Bad!”
Mark my words, the media that will side so heavily with one party to corrupt the perceptions of the general populace in order to secure power and force a corrupt and immoral agenda will find no security in the eventual government they hope to bring about.
If you set a trap for others, you will get caught in it yourself. If you roll a boulder down on others, it will crush you instead. A lying tongue hates its victims, and flattering words cause ruin. – Proverbs 26:27-28 NLT
That’s my opinion, and I’m sticking to it.
Freaky Friday Rhyming News
It’s just another freaky Friday, I suppose.
Before I head out, I’ll tell you why I think so.
And by the way, it wasn’t my objective
To write a post with a rhyming perspective
Nevertheless, tis the way it is going to be
I can’t stop now… It’ll be OK, you’ll see.
Who would have thought in 1910
That the boys would allow the girls an in?
For equality’s sake, because of pouts,
Boys cannot be boys, but there’s still a Girl Scouts.
Funny thing, I was talking with my daughter
After getting worried and creating some laughter.
Seems I stressed over nothing, even thought she’s eighteen
Only boys must register; girls get off clean!
Well, don’t women serve now in all the military?
“Well, yes,” said my wife, “but it’s all voluntary.”
But what about equality? What about being fair?
I was spitting into the wind – nobody cares.
I think what it’s really all about
Is that girls always win when they learn how to pout.
Young man, forget to register and you’ll forfeit student loans
But try to make it fair and all you’ll hear will be groans.
“Give us what we want when we want it – TODAY!
Because what you have is what we want, now go away!”
Distinctives only matter when the one crying “equality”
Demands her specificity is manifested in your polity.
And when you’ve abandoned whatever makes you unique
She’ll keep her own distinctives and call you a freak.
AOC (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) D-New York
But speaking of freaky and totally spacey
Have you heard the proposal from the young AOC?
The Green New Deal, or something like that
Will never go through – It will surely fall flat.
On the other hand, what’s scary is that some take it serious
And that’s why our national future is perilous.
No more emissions, no more traveling by plane
In only ten years we’ll be riding on trains
Retrofit or rebuild every building in the land
And guarantee jobs for every woman and man.
Did I mention there’ll be chargers at every hand?
And, oh, by the way, we’re now on a mission
To inform all Hispanics that they’re Native American.
(No Joke about that last part – Here’s a link)
You may think I’m crazy or am going to far,
But read the newspaper or hear the news in your car.
There’s literally too much to absorb. It’s all crazy!
And that’s why I believe it’s a freaky Friday.
