I cannot begin to tell you just how hard it has become to even sit down and try to put "pen to paper" lately. I have good intentions, but when I sit down and try to come up with something.... anything to write about I've just been getting stuck. It happens occasionally I know, but it makes it no easier to write.
I think much of it is due to the current conditions on this Big Blue Marble we call home. Tension can be felt everywhere it seems. Much of it is out of my control but I still feel that knot in my stomach. I've had to come to some serious conclusions concerning the land we live in and the people who are in control of it now. I'm afraid we are watching America die a slow and painful death. This incremental destruction of our liberties is maddening. All the smoke and mirrors, the lies and the liars, the haves and the have not's. Let's not say so though... Political Correctness has become a monster that we all fight. Oh dear!! We wouldn't want to hurt someones feelings' now would we?
I've come to believe that Americans will accept just about anything. Repeat a lie often enough and it will become the truth. I'm becoming jaded and cynical and I don't really want to be. I find myself wanting to scream at the top of my lungs "WHY CAN'T YOU SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOUR COUNTRY!!!!!!" Oh, wait.... the people spoke on election day. And what they said was that they like the Nanny State and whatever "ism" you want to call this mess. Facisim, Socialism, Communism....I won't argue the semantics. It's hard to watch and even harder to live among people who would argue the point.
Have you ever had one of those moments when everything just comes together in your mind? Things just "click" and finally you see the whole picture? I've had one of those recently. It took watching that movie 2016: Obama's America for me to suddenly understand just what the hell is going on, and worse, I can see exactly where this man would like to see us. I'd recomend the movie to everyone, but like the movie.... you will have to make your own mind up. I came away with a deeper understanding of just how far that tyranny has come and just where we are headed. I also wonder if we have already been complacent to long.
I've never been so sure that we are headed to some sort of eruption. The government obviously feels the same way. Why else are they stockpiling over 1.4 BILLION rounds of ammunition to be used by the varying agencies INSIDE the United States. They are preparing for an event yet unknown to us. Unfortunately I think that we are going to find out sooner than we would like just what they have planned.
The intrusions into our lives has already begun. One good example would be the TSA moving from airport terminals to the streets. Just this week the head guy of the TSA told CONgress that he would NOT meet and testify before them and CONgress has NO jurisdiction over them. Sound Stazi to you?
Drones will be flying our skies by 2015 in all states. They have already been used against a farmer up North over a cattle dispute. How long will it take before they start taking out the riff-raff that would dare to argue with them?. Ask those folks in Syria just how much safer they feel now.
These are just a couple of things that have been on my mind lately. There are more. Lot's more. Someone asked me once if I could help them to understand some of the things l talk about. The only thing I could say (and I still feel bad about it) was that I don't want to be the one who shows you just how bad things are. Of course there is more to the story than that. There are reasons I didn't want to be the one to bring this "knowing" to her. Purely selfish reasons. Because once you start on the path to the truth you cannot turn back. You can't put the genie back in the bottle. You can not un-know things. I'll guarantee a few sleepless nights as well. I'll be the first to admit that I WANT people to wake up and smell the commie coffee for what it is, but in this case I didn't want to know that I was the one to bring this ugly mess to her. She has her own personal struggles and I just felt that all this "negative" energy was something she does not need. Of course I may be wrong, but I will accept that. I only hope that I didn't loose her friendship over my decision.
I know what happens when you open Pandora's Box.......
