Or so it seems.
An important reminder! The less dependent on Government and others you are, the better your life will be in the future. It won’t be our Children that fix what’s coming, nor will it be our Grandchildren, that possibility has already been eliminated.
The war to divide us rages on! Ileana draws from her hands on life experience. I swapped a few emails with her yesterday. Her education certainly enhances her credibility in my eyes, as she is a PHD, and has taught Economics for a good many years. But it’s her hands on experience that I respect most, and her blow by blow account of what happened in Romania, she was there, and some of her accounts chillingly parallel to our current events.
Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh is my favorite American. She arrived here with nothing, and quickly understood the rarity of our ‘rule of law’ and the freedoms we HAD here. She has been out spoken, and other Romanian professionals I know are scared, their scars are a reminder of why they need be quiet.
So yesterday, I note the new effort to divide us is trickling down to the progressive foot soldiers on the street. Posts that if you have concerns about illegals coming across the border you are a Bigot. Notes about people coming here years ago and being welcomed in, and a note that all these children showing up on the border should be equally welcome as well. All those warning about TB that is resistant to antibiotics, the need to screen these people as we once did. The recent news that even the CDC has failed to enforce their critically important protocols! It is a sign that all too many among us believe in magic. Bring any of this up, and they’ll tell you how petty you are.
Dr. Paugh is economist, and of course she knows that 18 trillion in debt means we are a far different country than 100 years ago. But she also recognizes that every effort to divide us is EXACTLY what happened in Romania. She remembers the Government moving people into her Father’s house, and the people who didn’t hold their tongue when their property was confiscated disappeared in the middle of the night.
I’m a Bigot if I don’t like the fact that some Gay people, especially teachers have joined the progressive movement and work to eradicate religious Freedoms here. But I recognize, there are a good many Gay people who are libertarians they note that the Government should have no right to tell them what kind of contracts they form with others, as it should be none of their effing business.
But here’s my guess, and I am a betting man, so tell me how much you’ll wager. WE HAVE already lost our country, and this is why so many on the right are attempting to offer the same promises of free stuff that the left does. Most of my black friends have no clue, that their vote no longer matters. We have arrived at that point where the only thing that will decide an election is who is willing to offer the most free stuff. I think it was about 10 years back that Harry Reid let it slip out that ‘they’ didn’t know what to do, and he was very concerned about those on the left of him having irrational expectations. The DNC chose to go with the flow versus educate their base that we can not continue building on our debt forever.
At this point, all that is left .. is my wish that my Grandchildren know that it was my hope I could help leave them the same freedom and opportunity that was afforded me, and I took no part in welcoming the change.
So.. I’m a bigot, I’m a racist, and I do bash ignorant Gays just like I do my other friends. Smart gay people know that when the Robinson’s lose their Freedom to believe as they do, so do the rest of us. For it is written in the history books, and all so easy to study.
The word cocksure comes to mind.. my mind is full of doubts, but I know people who have never harboured a doubt in their whole lives.
Of all the people I watch or listen to, Dennis Miller has processed what has happened, and has a plan, he knows we have lost our culture, and he has mentioned he believes there are people who WILL mess you up if you make too many waves. He’s likely right.. If only O’Reilly had Miller’s intellect, Miller runs about a light year ahead of O’Reilly..
All the best, and do prepare, the DIYer will live the better life in the future, and your services will be in great demand.
