My Thoughts

Why is anyone paying the least attention to these nihilistic, imbecilic, disgruntled losers cancelling everything? It used to be, back in the days of common sense and sanity, people saw good in others and aspired to be the best that they could be. It used to be we reached out to touch the stars, dreamed lofty dreams and challenged ourselves to achieve those dreams. It used to be hard work, honest effort, risk acceptance, and determination were considered admirable qualities, the more difficult the task, the harder the challenge, the higher the risk, the greater the admiration and reward for individual achievement. Failure, and there were always failures, were met with firm resolve to learn from our mistakes and not repeat them for we knew nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Once upon a time—and this is no fairy tale—freedom rang loud and clear for everyone, everyone without reserve, because each knew what freedom meant. Freedom came at a heavy price—that means freedom is never free—and what is purchased at so great a cost is cherished and dearly kept from those who would trample it with heavy heel. Freedom. Such a word deserves more than a passing thought. It demands a monument of its own accord, one perhaps that stands before the world with lamp aglow in silent presence to the horde below. America was called the land of the free and the home of the brave because it was a land of free individuals who bravely sought their own unique destinies, willing to bear any hardship, climb any mountain, meet any challenge, pay dearly for the right to be the best they could be.

  • I am tired of being called a racist. I am not. You are for calling me that.

  • I am tired of being labeled a xenophobe, homophobe, or any other phobe for the matter. I am not.

  • I am tired of hearing those who hate, without knowing me they call me names and belittle me and wish me ill. What you think of me is your business so just keep it to yourself and I will do the same.

  • I am tired of those who fund and promote this tyranny of hate and the anarchy of the mob. Why not use your money to build rather than destroy, for good rather than evil? You owe us an answer.

  • I am tired of those who hate my country but refuse to find another more to their liking (because they can’t.) Why not try to improve things rather than make things worse?

  • I am tired of those who believe it is their right to destroy what others have worked so hard to build. Who do you think you are? I will tell you. You are cowards, too lazy to get off your high stools and work for a living.

  • I am tired of those who teach our children to hate their country, the family, and their God. You are not teaching, you are indoctrinating, destroying minds, and turning our children into mindless drones.

  • I am tired of politicians who choose power over truth, objective truth. You are our servants, we elected you to serve us, not us serving you. Get over yourself and start doing the job we elected you to do.

  • I am tired of spineless religious leaders kowtowing to the secular idols set before them. It is God in whom they are to serve, not the government. The flocks are starving and being fed to the wolves while the hired shepherds hide under their beds and plead for mercy.

  • I am tired and will no longer stand silent in the face of chaos, anarchy, tyranny, and persecution.

You who are with, for, and support the mob, the technocrats and billionaires behind the scenes funding all the rage and violence, the professors who destroy the minds of our children, the judges and lawyers and bureaucrats who ignore and do injustice to the rule of law, the elected and bureaucratic government officials drunk in your unholy power, you are the enemy that must be crushed and defeated. And, as God is my witness, freedom-loving Americans will rise up and destroy you.

Wake up America.

Just my thoughts for a Friday, for what it is worth.
