It’s NO secret what I think of the current administration If you had any doubts that should cover it.
“Ayn Rand, the novelist, once said, “We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality.” Every American should keep this in mind. Ignorance is not bliss. It is extremely dangerous”. —quoted in the beginning of this article by : Courageous Lion
This hit home because the decision making (or NO decisions at all in some cases)
Make it extremely hard to fathom that 30% of the US Population STILL feel 'He’s doing a good job".
The Economy is doing better than under whisper, whisper the other guy.
“He’s done more for this country…”. oh, I can’t, I just can’t do this. --If I ever listen to that ‘Muppet’s’ voice
again I’ll lose my Waffles. Thank the Lord for that precious ‘Mute’ button.
In the TRUE sense of creating a TOPIC (not just trying to stir up a SH** Storm, or Wind up the masses
to revolution (I am really not! Honest) I AM trying to understand how many in this country can continue to be ‘duped’ by this mass Brain washing and Indoctrination. I know It’s EASY to dupe someone, I’ve seen it with Mohamed Farrah Aidid in the MOG.
He trashed his city, he mass murdered them, If the resisted or were just in his way, He enriched himself on EVERY facet of help he cold get his mealy little hands on. (Sound familiar folks?)
Anybody interested can read (50) books, watch a few pretty accurate flicks but my real 'Q’uestion is
‘WHY?’ or 'HOW"? do we let the continue? We pick ‘Actor’s’ and career Politicians…excuse me for a second… wphew. OK, deep breath…
We (AMERICAN’S , The United States of America) were given a definitive set of Rules and Laws that should have prevented all this current misery.
It baffle’s me
It angers me
It frustrates me
We use to be taught 'Work hard and you can be whatever you want!
In the Civil War Col. Chamberlin (20th Maine) was 'Q’uoted as saying: ‘WE ALL HAVE VALUE!’
I don’t know folks, I don’t feel Valued lately , do you?
I live a VERY 'Q’uiet life, a couple of really good friends, My life gets weird when I have to leave my house and property. When I have to deal with some ‘people’. God knows I prefer the Internet than some of these brainless shepple.
So, what I want to know , Really want to know is ‘Are we going to make it?’ Be Honest first w/ yourself and then with the rest of us.
because in my opinion there really is a possibility of Failure here.
“A house divided against itself, cannot stand.”
I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free.
I do not expect the Union to be dissolved – I do not expect the house to fall – but I do expect it will cease to be divided.
It will become all one thing or all the other. PRESIDENT ABE LINCOLN
Well, Looking down on US do you still think that Brother Abe? Hmm? because we are sure as Sh** divided now!
(This could get 1,000 responses or it could get zip.) Can somebody be too much of a Patriot? God Bless America.
Well, objectively, I can say that in 2019 I had one of my best financial years ever. I also felt safe as an American. Literally, my family and I were financially secure, felt physically secure, and were generally happy. We look back on it as the last good year.
Today I’m in the worst financial shape of my adult life. We’re facing major life changes because of inflation, business failure and interest rates. We’re on alert daily for crime and possible SHTF from terrorist groups now here. We are, literally, stressed out, over worked, underpaid and tired. Life is nothing like it was in 2019.
That’s my reality, and I can’t hide from it.
AMEN Brother, Sorry for your Troubles, I mean that.
You are a Class act Joseph, I pray we all make it through these ‘difficult’ times.
I can say for a fact, you’re not alone! 2019 was the last best year.
Yes, so far we’ve lost three years of our lives!
I don’t know how but I intend to get them back!
Being that I literally died in 2021 I can say without a doubt that I am currently doing a lot better now than I was two years ago:)
My wife and I are also fortunate to have solid jobs and we were lucky enough to buy a house at the bottom of the last housing crash so our cost of living is far more bearable than most folks around here.
But our cost of living for everything other than our mortgage has gone up considerably over the past 5 years. And if one of our jobs dried up we would be in considerable trouble because there are not many other options for either of us out there.
I also don’t know how anyone who didn’t buy a home here a decade ago can possibly afford to rent let alone buy a home here on the average wage most people around here make. There is no way we could afford to live here now without running up the credit cards and living paycheck to paycheck if we didn’t have our affordable home which has more than tripled in value since we bought it.
Our government has been economically bankrupt for well over the past decade and morally bankrupt for far longer than that. Eventually everyone will figure out the emperor has no clothes. Then we will all likely be in for a lot of pain.
But the cycle will eventually reset and start all over again. Some of us will make it through ok and some of us won’t. Your guess is as good as mine whether any of us will recognize or want to recognize what the US looks like after the dust settles.
I still cannot believe how easily the Country was subverted at the highest levels.
The only way to truly evade reality is to withdraw from it completely, which means no engagement or participation. “Hermit in a cave on a mountain top” comes to mind. Of course, this applies only to social/cultural reality. Evading objective reality usually comes to a Darwinian conclusion.
“That’s ME!” Tho sadly No mountain Top…
Now this statement is REALLY what this author (and reason for me posting this) had in mind I believe Brother.
My experience has been similar. We really notice it in the grocery bill. For the past 20 years, we make a Christmas and New Year’s day dinner for our local First Responders who are on duty. I actually got sticker shocked at how much it cost this year.
it’s started along about 74 75…
went to college on the GI bill…
ran into a sociology ?professor? there
he was purely a communist and bragged about it and red china…
made many claims and I refuted some of em…
he finally took me outside the class room and offered me a “C” grade if I stopped coming to class…
so whats wrong with our country… start in the schools!!! they have been thoroughly infiltrated…
bring back civics AND MAYBE require voters take and pass a course in civics to vote?
