"Drinking Bone" (opens in separate window)

covid communism has been contagious

friday, january 13th, 2020

NNow that we're approaching the three-year anniversary of COVID-1984's global demolition (or "Great Reset" in World Economic Forum parlance), reality looks very different from what many people once perceived it to be.  Raise your hand if you thought "free" nations would declare the authority to close millions of small businesses until they went bankrupt and folded.  Or whether never-before-used, experimental cocktails of mRNA "vaccine" would be coercively injected into citizens.  Did you think governments would conspire to cover up "vaccine"-related injuries and deaths?  Did you expect that the Canadian government would take the unprecedented steps of invoking the Emergencies Act and seizing the private bank accounts of Freedom Convoy protesters in order to intimidate peaceful Canadians and quell dissent?  Did you predict that in the United States and throughout the West, public debate would be targeted and censored if that speech contradicted governments' official public health "narratives"?  Did you know that COVID communism would end up being more contagious than the virus?

Leftists don't care what you do, as long as it's mandatory. And what's not mandatory, they want to ban.

If you still have your hand raised, then you are part of a humble minority who were worried about the West's accelerating attacks against personal liberty even before the rise of COVID-1984.  If you had your eyes unexpectedly opened during the last three years, though, it is all the better to have you seeing clearly now.  Around the world, the WuFlu pandemic and governments' coordinated responses to use this health scare as a transparent pretense for ushering in the WEF's beloved "Great Reset" have awakened hundreds of millions of people who might otherwise still be sleeping.  While our puppet master oligarchs have achieved a great deal in a short time, their in-your-face mobilization efforts to "fundamentally transform" the world have also commanded new, unwanted attention.  A growing share of the population finally understands that we are in an ongoing battle between self-government and global government and that friends of freedom must dig in their heels for the long haul.

The Democrat Party, isn't.

"Government is not your friend."  Now, depending upon how you react to that statement, you can judge for yourself just how close you are to admitting that we have a Big Government problem.  If you think forced lockdowns, injections, property confiscations, and censorship are all reasonable powers for a government with "good intentions" just looking out for the "greater good," then you, friend, are still sleeping and may not bounce to until tanks or something equally less subtle is thundering down your street.  On the other hand, if you have wondered for some time how any entity could steal half your income, declare your religion "hate speech," and aid and abet narco-terrorists and sex-traffickers at the border and somehow not be considered a front for organized crime, then you already see through the Big Government ruse.  If you have dared to question how it is possible for the EPA or IRS or some other tentacle of the federal Leviathan to regulate the minutiae of your life behind the barrel of a gun and the threat of lethal force, while simultaneously labeling your anti-government thoughts as examples of "domestic terrorism," then you successfully grasp just how big of a problem Big Government has become.  With few exceptions, government is where small-time crooks go to commit large-scale crimes in the name of the people in exchange for immunity.  The best criminals get buildings, bridges, tunnels, and parks named after them.

Friendly fire, isn't.

Still, illogically equating "love of country" with "love of government" remains a stubborn delusion.  It is somewhat amazing to realize how many people find it utterly offensive hillbilly-speak, if not evidence of outright treason, to hear someone saying something as benign as, "You can't trust the government."  In America, that reaction is particularly vexing.  The whole U.S. Constitution was designed precisely because the Founders despised centralized authority and distrusted government.  They set up an entire system of "checks and balances" because they agreed that men are prone to vice, that unscrupulous people are attracted to the levers of power, that governments are inherently corrupt, and that the best we can do is devise an organizational structure in which one man's personal corruption is played against another's in the measured hope that bad-faith actors will nonetheless be constrained into doing some occasional good.  Everything about America's founding is predicated on the idea that power should be minimized and divided as much as possible.  Individual liberty is not only an inalienable right, but also an inherent check against the accumulation of unjust government authority.  Still, public school indoctrination over the decades and celebrity politicians glamorizing government as some sort of sacred, secular religion have succeeded in warping Americans' minds to such an extent that it is now nearly heresy to suggest that working for the "public good" is in reality nothing more than a D.C. cocktail party punch line!

Common sense, isn't.

There is a reason that the Founders' first order of business after establishing the Constitution was to ratify a Bill of Rights: too many of them knew that even though the whole fight for American independence had been conducted in the pursuit of liberty, members of the American government would sell out Americans' hard fought freedoms just as soon as doing so either became popular or profitable.  Not only did it not take long for early congresses to prove their fears correct, but also it would be fair to say today that the Bill of Rights has become a target under sustained attack.  

Self-made people, aren't.

You like your free speech and assembly?  That's fine — just don't get caught in the nation's capital protesting fraudulent mail-in-ballot elections, or it's off to the gulag for you!  Best not to express your doubts online about man-made climate change, transgenderism, or the effectiveness of mRNA "vaccines" either — or the FBI, CDC, and Homeland Security will have to censor your speech as harmful "disinformation."  You think you should be able to own a firearm for your personal defense and as a bulwark against government tyranny?  Uhhh, haven't you heard?  Despite the Supreme Court's decisions to the contrary, you don't get any Second Amendment protections without background checks, licensing, and government database monitoring.  What's that about your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures and your desire to maintain privacy unless a valid warrant has been issued based upon probable cause?  Oh, sorry, the DOJ, FBI, and Intelligence Community have found PATRIOT Act workarounds to tear those noisome constitutional considerations to shreds.  You can exercise your religion freely — no, that's not right; you must refrain from publicly practicing any religion that conflicts with the "politically correct" doctrines of the State's established "woke" faith.  Hmmm, you might still have some due process rights or protections against cruel and unusual punishment — depending on your politics, of course!  

We live in a world of intolerance, masked as tolerance.

American rights have been sliced and diced until all that is left is the will of the government.  The will of the people, as so many J6 defendants can attest, has limped along on life support, while Big Government assassins seek to smother it dead.  These last three years of COVID-1984 may have changed that depressing prognosis once and for all.  Brutal overreach has more Americans than ever asking why they should be perpetual victims of government abuse.  Many are finally recalling the Founders' wisdom and remembering that government is not their friend.  Many more have begun to realize that a government that refuses to abide by the Constitution is a government with waning legitimacy.  When enough realize that self-government demands that the organs of the State defer to the people, then a tipping point will be reached.  The World Economic Forum's acolytes might have sown the seeds for a "Great Reset," but they may well regret what they eventually reap.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 6a on Friday -- ZERO DARK THIRTY -- I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made Kona Coffee and skipped breakfast until I got back from Market, took a 2 50mg Tramadol for lower back and R/S hip pains, had a couple smokes in the semi-cool garage and checked the leftover errands list. It was already raining lightly, 41°, and forecast to hit 46°. I scanned the news, and guess what? Same-O, same-O crap. And this abject stupidity is going to plunge America into a severe crisis, in the Spring.

How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon.

I got ready for the day, and added ground Dunkin' Donuts Coffee to my list, until the 2lbs of amCoffee.com (Kona, of course) arrive. The 5lbs pkg CoffeeFools.com whole bean isn't going back to them -- they won't even answer my message-pleas to grind the beans -- so I'm not doing business with them anymore, and closing my account. BFD; they won't miss me at all, even with all the mucho dinero I've spent over the past 2-3yrs. Meh.

After unpacking all the food from the New Eastern Market and a stop at Weis Market, I had lunch and tried to take a short nap, but that failed. I had a major catastrophic event with a key 2022 "Journal" file -- the 2022 index file for all 52 entries -- which would have taken me 2 days to reconstruct, and which I'd accidentally over-written. Fortunately, my HTML Editor, TopStyle v3.5, made a back-up copy and I was saved further turmoil. My BP back to "near-normal", I did a full system back-up to my 4TB Western Digital External Drive, WD® "My Book" 4Tb External Drive, and to my Norton 360 Cloud Storage.

Some people wonder why I carry a Kimber 1911 .45cal ACP, with Rosewood Grips and a built-in red laser. Here's why. Only Fox News carried the story. Pitiful media, because the murderer's a murderous, muslim(SPIT!) subhuman black.

January 6th, 2021: a phony baloney "insurrection", led by FBI informant Ray Epps and other FBI & CIA agents, erupted, resulting in the murder of Ashli Babbitt, a 14yr Air Force Vet, and the eventual false arrest and imprisonment of 950 participants, without charges, for almost two years. The corrupt US Government, criminal FBI and CIA, orchestrated the whole damned thing, to declare Trump's "MAGA Army" as "Domestic Terrorists". The 1st Amendment was trashed by a few violent rioters, who could have been, and should have been, ID'd and duly arrested, including the MFer punk Epps scumbag. Illegal and unConstitutional come to mind, right away. The gov't, media and politicians are silent and complicit in this massive conspiracy. Meanwhile, there's a cartel war on our southern border, hundreds of thousands of American kids dead from Fentanyl, from China and Mexico, and Bidet&Co assholes do NOTHING! Happy Anniversary, America!

After some dinner, I did the usual Fox News-Watters-Tucker-Gold Rush routine, and unplugged at midnight. Good to sleep-in tomorrow morning.

Up at 8:15a on Saturday, I upped the heat, made Kona Coffee and checked the news and weather. Snow coming tomorrow; 38° and nippy outside this morning. 15 votes and the US House Speaker was confirmed, with more bullshit theatrics. My, is this nation in trouble, or what? I had breakfast, took my 17-pill regimen, and got ready for the day. I called Rite Aid to get a Schedule 1 Rx filled that had expired, but they had a refill 'on file'. What to expect from the new US House? Just more of the same-old shit; nothing new.

I had several errands to do, and left just after 12noon, when Rite Aid called. After 3 stops, I was back home around 1:30p, had a banana for lunch and listened to some "Chris Plante Show" Podcasts. Sis brought home Mission BBQ's luscious 'moist' Brisket, Baby Back Ribs and some sides, for lunch. Amazingly good, as usual! Best BBQ in York.

Anyone who takes even a cursory look at the news – regardless the source – has to be aware of Fentanyl – the latest of the killer drugs assaulting our society. It wasn't too long ago that virtually no one had ever heard of it. Now, it seems to be everywhere, and from what we are told, it is a killer of staggering proportions. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is said to be 50 times more potent than heroin. While the drug is found in all states, California is particularly hard hit, and the source, it appears, is movement of the drug across the border from Mexico, with Interstate 5 being a main trafficking route. Authorities believe the original source of the drug is China, and there seems to be no limit to the quantity that ends up in the U.S. There is no information available as to whether our government has had any contact with China about this movement of the drug. In a recent report from California Gov. Gavin Newsom, law enforcement, just in California this year, seized 28,765 pounds of the drug. According to Newsom, that's enough to kill the entire of population of North America, TWICE!

Here comes the new version of "Extremely Contagious Covid", direct from CCP-China, again. It has been just over a month since CCP-China dropped its zero COVID approach to the pandemic. Since then the disease has spread rapidly in CCP-China’s cities and there is lots of evidence that many people have died (hospitals, funeral parlors and crematoriums in Beijing have been overwhelmed) but very few of those deaths get reported in the official COVID death toll. Today the NY Times reports there’s reason to think the situation is going to get worse as the disease is now moving into rural areas where there are no real hospitals or treatment available for anyone who gets sick. The infections in Dadi Village, a corn farming community tucked between verdant hills in CCP-China’s remote southwest, started in early December when a handful of young people returned from jobs in big cities. The nearest hospital was an hour away, and few could afford the $7 bus fare there. The village clinic is not equipped with oxygen tanks or even an oximeter to detect if someone's blood is dangerously deprived of oxygen. It quickly ran out of its stockpile of five boxes of fever medicine, so officials told sick residents to stay home and drink lots of water… CCP-China is bracing for an onslaught of infections in its fragile countryside as millions of migrant workers crowd onto trains and buses to leave factory towns, construction sites and cities, to return to their rural homes for the Lunar New Year holiday. The travel period, which begins Saturday and lasts 40 days, is expected to overwhelm the rural health care system only weeks after hospitals in wealthy cities like Beijing and Shanghai were buckled by the outbreak. Get ready for the lockdowns and worthless mask mandates. FU US Gov't!

I hit the LR couch around 4p, just as snow/rain cells were moving thru the area. I had put the Jeep into the garage for the night, opened the hood to let the hot HEMI V8 engine warm-up the garage, and turned-on the oscillating ceramic heater. Temps were dropping fast into the upper-30s. Back up at 6p, I had dinner, watched some new episodes of "American Pickers" on History, and quit for the night at midnight.

Rudely awakened by the bright sun at 8:30a on Sunday, at 31° outside, I struggled to get up, with pain in my lower R/S back and hip, and left shoulder. I grabbed 2 50mg Tramadol right away, had a smoke in the garage with my Kona Coffee, and started a 2-3 day FAST, with no carbs, to get my BSL down into the 100-130 range. At 155lbs -- I should be at 170-175lbs -- I don't have any spare body fat in reserve, so I'll be using plenty of Ensure® Protein "Café Mocha" Drinks, an occasional banana -- natural sugars are OK with my Endocrinologist Dr -- but nothing else. Sucks to be me.

After my morning shower (and shave), I got ready for the day. I started 2 loads of laundry, and gathered-up the garbage and recyclables, to go out by 2p, for morning pick-up. By noon, temps had risen to 42°, but it felt much, much colder. I got the recyclable bin to the curb, and dropped my garbage bag into my next door neighbor's trash bin; he uses my recycle bin. After an quick trip to the local convenience store, I stopped to get the Jeep filled with Ethanol Free Premium 90 Octane: $98 at $4.56/gal for the thirsty Jeep HEMI V8. No, I don't regret buying it in May 2019, when fuel was still cheap. It's an amazingly wonderful machine, and I'll have it until I die. My BSL has dropped from 162 to 118, as of 5p.

If you were a Rush Limbaugh Radio Show listener, as I was, here's a complete, LOTS of pages, all 5,731 shows, free archive of his broadcasts, in The InterNet Archive -- aka Wayback Machine -- going back to 2005. Enjoy.

No dinner, as I was on my "fast" for another 36-48hrs, so I garaged the Jeep, did paperwork and filing, and watched some TV. BSL down to 100 at 9p, and probably a good number to stay close to. I had BBQ'd Brisket for dinner -- all protein; no sugar or carbs -- so it's allowed. Same for the Protein Drink. A light snow was forecast overnite, with no accumulation, which is disappointing. We're into January and all we've got is(((cold))), no snow so far. I worked on my computer until 10:15p, set-up things for the morning, as I usually do, and called it a day.

Up at 8a on Monday, to 31° -- we got some snow! -- Sis already had the heat running, coffee made and I had a smoke in the still-warming garage. With a high of 45° forecast, the 1" snowfall wouldn't last long. I'm as "giddy" as a 5-yr old, with the first snow. After that, meh; I can do without all the ice and stuff. I had a quick Croissant and banana, left for two stops down south in Red Lion, and was back just after 11:30a. Traffic was light. Sherry arrived at 12:30p, and she, Sis and I drove to Hallam, where a Master Woodworker named Phil lives, to look at his collection of personal collection of pieces, and hopefully, buy a couple of his masterpieces. Sis bought $1,200 of his work, Sherry and me, none. Back at my condo, an hour-15 later, I relaxed, Sherry left and I had the last of Mission BBQ's Baby Back Ribs and Cream-of-Crab Soup.

After garaging the Jeep, temps dropped into the low-30s, and would be mid-20s by morning. I watched "Watters" and "Carlson", and was getting tired, so I bagged it at 9:30p.

The alarm woke me at 0-DARK-THIRTY (6a), since JoAnne my cleaning lady, would be in by 8:30. 26° outside. I fired-up the furnace, made coffee and had a couple smokes, after checking the BSL. I'm off Fasting, as of this morning. I scanned my office-sunroom's desktop for new and weather. The day just came too early; I could have slept another 2hrs, easily. JoAnne cleaned the 'fridge -- something I hadn't done in years -- and it looks great. I checked the news.

Diamond, of "Diamond & Silk", died at 51. RIP, Lynette Hardaway. Trump leads Republican rage as he demands action after ten classified documents were found at Biden's think tank from his time as VP - when he did NOT have power to declassify documents. And too much more...

A few weeks ago, I wrote a "Journal" lead article, called SmartyPantsPhone Addiction, which garnered hundreds of emails to me, from readers who noticed or have, that problem. Now, I'm seeing people sitting in the Galleria Mall, sitting at the same Food Court table, texting each other, but not talking. I had to shake my head to believe it, but there it was. I was aghast that people no longer talk to each other across a table, or in a doctor's office, or in a store. They text. Sad stuff.

The US House is proposing a bill to abolish the IRS and Income Tax, and replace it with a "consumption tax". Here's the differences. I doubt it'll ever happen; Lunch Bucket Joey Bidet&Co will veto it.

I did a load of laundry, grabbed a 2hr snooze on the couch, and had some dinner. I'm off the BSL Fasting Routine now, and back to eating semi-normally, still excluding all processed sugars and as many carbs as I possibly can. Sucks to be me. After the TV news, "Watters", "Carlson", I decided to call it a night at 11:30. I have a plumber coming here between an 11a - 3p 'window', so it's going to be a weird day. Lights out.

The bright sun woke me up at 8:30a on Wednesday, to a cold 29° morning, Sis was already up, had warmed-up the condo, made Kona Coffee, and I saw that TSHTF with the airlines, on Fox News. What a mess. Glad I don't fly anymore, and haven't since July 1996, when TWA 800 was shot down over Long Island, and the FBI and NTSB covered it up for the Clinton filth. I had lower back/leg pain, so I took 2 50mg Tramadol, as the 500mg Tylenol Extra Strength wasn't working. I called Pasta Plus, where I buy food on Friday, at the New Eastern Farmers' Market, to cancel last Friday's order, so I can reduce the amount of carbs I've been eating.

I had the "Chris Plante Show" on since 9a, and after breakfast, all I could do was wait for a call from the plumber, from Regal HVAC, until 3p. I hoped he'd get here sooner than 3, as that would waste what was left of the day. Finally, my 2022 1099 Tax Statements are starting to be available online, for W-F and PNC Banks. The plumber showed-up at 12:15p, and promptly took care of the 3 bathroom drains, and replaced the cracked toilet seat. He and I talked about guns for 35-40mins, tipped him nicely and I wrote a check and he was gone. Then I left for Weis Market around 3p, to get a small list of things. After getting back home and unloading, I had paperwork to do and finished listening to the "CP Show" 2nd & 3rd segments.

Are you as tired as I am, of the "*OCs" yet? POC: People Of Color... WOC: Women Of Color... MOC: Men Of Color... TOC: Trannies Of Color... COC: Communities Of Color... EOC: Events Of QOC:.. Queers Of Color... WOC: Workers Of Color... SOC: Shit Of Color... etc? Everything related to "woke" shit, is driving me NUTZ! I do my best to ignore it, but it seeps-in everywhere. Insidious crappola.

By 4p, temps were dropping fast into the low-30s, so I garaged the Jeep, and turned-on the oscillating ceramic heater, so I'd have somewhere comfy to have a smoke. I went to Rite Aid's website, logged-in, filled out a 5 page questionnaire and got confirm codes, just to get my Rx Purchase History for 2022, and nothing worked, like last year for 2021. WHAT A F•CKING MESS THAT WEBSITE IS! Don't ever use it!! My BP went thru the roof after I called, got put on hold 3x, for 15-20 mins each time, just to request a simple print-out of 2022 Rx purchases. I'll have to go there in-person, show ID, and wait 20-30mins for the copy of Rx purchases. What a f•cking mess that place is! They have so few employees working in that Pharmacy Dept, make 10x the profit as any other dept's crap sold in the store, but under staff it. It's a f•cking horror show! Wake the f•ck up, Rite Aid assholes.

I finally calmed down, had a smoke in the garage, and had an iced tea. I was still too PO'd to eat any dinner. And day after tomorrow, is Friday The 13th. Am I superstitious? No; a definite no. Never have been. After another banana, I watched some TV until 11:30p, and called it 'Yankee Doodle'. Lights out.

I slept-in until 9a on Thursday, woke to a heavily-clouded 42° start to the day. After coffee and a couple of smokes, I tuned into the "CP Show", grabbed a shower, re-checked the paperwork for our Mission BBQ order, which I'm picking-up at 11:30, before the lunch "rush" hits and they're sold out of everything. I had a Croissant for breakfast, and left at 11a, for West York, thru the back roads, to avoid Rt30's heavy traffic, as much as I could. I was there and on my way back by 11:30a -- nicest place I've been in a long time, friendly, courteous and prompt people -- so I WILL be going back many more times. I had a Moist Brisket sandwich and a banana for lunch, and got ready to meet Sherry at the York Galleria for a nice time of exercise and talking.

After doing a mile-plus, Sherry and I came back to my condo, had some coffee w/ ReddiWhip®. relaxed and talked until 4:30, when it started getting dark, and she left. I got some Brisket and Cornbread for dinner, and caught the news. Looks like Lunch Bucket Joey Bidet&Co's 3rd incident mishandling of "classified documents" on Iran, Ukraine and other shitholes, is 100x worse than Trump's, since Trump was POTUS and could declassify document, but Lunch Bucket Joey Bidet&Co was a simple do-nothing -- except receive illegal money for criminaL deals with China, Ukraine, Iran etc -- idiot VP, and had no power to do that. I'm shaking my head, as the demonKKKrats and media -- but I repeat myself -- ignore Bidet's f•ck-ups. His crack-addicted son scum, Hunter, benefited immensely, too Gee, what a surprise.

I found a new talk radio show -- Jesse Kelly Show -- but no station around here that carries it, only iHeart, Plus, more of his Podcasts here.

I listened to Kelly's Podcasts until 11p, watched "Gutfeld" for a while, and unplugged at 11;45. Tomorrow's another day, here in the "Journal", and I have only a Therapeutic Massage next week, so maybe Sherry and I can spend some more quality time together; we'll see. Remember: tomorrow is Friday 13th -- BE CAREFUL! LOL.

Biden, You Lying Jackwagon Psychopath.


Sorry. This put me over the edge. That lying scumbucket of a President jumped the shark today. A massive shark.

Today Biden praised “President Harris” for all the work she’s done at the border. She’s done jack squat. Then he needed “President” Harris to finish his sentence.

Then there was this

“Biden announces new immigration restrictions”

“Biden will fly in 30,000 migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua and Haiti every month”

But the coup de grâce was this Bidenocchio moment:

"Biden: “We need more resources to secure the border. yet again extreme Republicans have said no.”

I can’t even find the words to describe this level of mendacity. It’s beyond galactic.

April 2022:

The $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill President Joe Biden signed this week — the first since he took office — has the biggest hike in domestic spending in four years. But not all programs are equal. Climate-change boondoggles get billions while border-security funding is slashed by nearly a half-billion — even as illegal crossings continue to spike.

It’s a recipe for disaster as officials expect an overwhelming flood of migrants within weeks as Biden prepares to lift the COVID-deportation measure.

The package boosts domestic spending by $46 billion, a nearly 7% hike. But it gives US Customs and Border Protection just $14.8 billion, a $428 million decrease from fiscal year 2021. (Factor in inflation, and the cuts are even deeper.)

The nosedive comes as illegal-immigrant apprehensions along the southwestern border skyrocketed in February to nearly 165,000, a 6.6% increase over January — and a 350% increase over February 2020, just after Biden took office and threw open America’s doors.

Biden’s current bill? It specifically prohibits more money for border security

The bill states that the $1,563,143,000 in funds allocated to CBP for “Operations and Support” can’t be used “to acquire, maintain, or extend border security technology and capabilities, except for technology and capabilities to improve Border Patrol processing.”

Former CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan called the funding restriction “fucking insanity,” in a statement to the DCNF.

Yeah. It was f**king insane. Biden is f**king insane. He is a pathologic liar. Even Mediaite had to break down and acknowledge that.

Calling Joe Biden a Pathological Liar is the One Thing George Santos Got Right

I don’t know how the living hell anyone in their right mind can continue to ignore this. It’s a problem. The freaking country is in the hands of a psychopath. Damn all who voted for him.

Men, Like Nations, Think They're Eternal.

What man in his 20s or 30s doesn't believe, at least subconsciously, that he'll live forever? In the springtime of youth, an endless summer beckons. As you pass 70, it's harder to hide from reality.... as you lose friends and relatives.

Nations also have seasons: Imagine a Roman of the 2nd century contemplating an empire that stretched from Britain to the Near East, thinking: This will endure forever.... Forever was about 500 years, give or take.... not bad, but gone!!

France was pivotal in the 17th and 18th centuries; now the land of Charles Martel is on its way to becoming part of the Muslim ummah.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the sun never set on the British empire; now Albion exists in perpetual twilight. Its 96-year-old sovereign is a fitting symbol for a nation in terminal decline.

In the 1980s, Japan seemed poised to buy the world. Business schools taught Japanese management techniques. Today, its birth rate is so low and its population aging so rapidly that an industry has sprung up to remove the remains of elderly Japanese who die alone.

I was born in 1945, almost at the midpoint of the 20th century - the American century. America's prestige and influence were never greater. Thanks to the 'Greatest Generation,' we won a World War fought throughout most of Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. We reduced Germany to rubble and put the rising sun to bed It set the stage for almost half a century of unprecedented prosperity.

We stopped the spread of communism in Europe and Asia and fought international terrorism. We rebuilt our enemies and lavished foreign aid on much of the world. We built skyscrapers and rockets to the moon.

We conquered Polio and now COVID. We explored the mysteries of the Universe and the wonders of DNA...the blueprint of life.

But where is the glory that once was Rome? America has moved from a relatively free economy to socialism - which has worked so well NOWHERE in the world.

We've gone from a republican government guided by a constitution to a regime of revolving elites. We have less freedom with each passing year. Like a signpost to the coming reign of terror, the cancel culture is everywhere. We've traded the American Revolution for the Cultural Revolution.

The pathetic creature in the White House is an empty vessel filled by his handlers. At the G-7 Summit, 'Dr. Jill' had to lead him like a child. In 1961, when we were young and vigorous, our leader was too. Now a feeble nation is technically led by the oldest man to ever serve in the presidency.

We can't defend our borders, our history (including monuments to past greatness) or our streets. Our cities have become anarchist playgrounds. We are a nation of dependents, mendicants, and misplaced charity. Homeless veterans camp in the streets while illegal aliens are put up in hotels.

The president of the United States can't even quote the beginning of the Declaration of Independence ('You know - The Thing') correctly. Ivy League graduates routinely fail history tests that 5th graders could pass a generation ago. Crime rates soar and we blame the 2nd. Amendment and slash police budgets.

Our culture is certifiably insane. Men who think they're women. People who fight racism by seeking to convince members of one race that they're inherently evil, and others that they are perpetual victims. A psychiatrist lecturing at Yale said she fantasizes about 'unloading a revolver into the head of any white person.'

We slaughter the unborn in the name of freedom, while our birth rate dips lower year by year. Our national debt is so high that we can no longer even pretend that we will repay it one day. It's a $30-trillion monument to our improvidence and refusal to confront reality. Our 'entertainment' is sadistic, nihilistic, and as enduring as a candy bar wrapper thrown in the trash. Our music is noise that spans the spectrum from annoying to repulsive.

Patriotism is called an insurrection, treason celebrated, and perversion sanctified. A man in blue gets less respect than a man in a dress. We're asking soldiers to fight for a nation our leaders no longer believe in.

How meekly most of us submitted to Fauci-ism (the regime of face masks, lockdowns, and hand sanitizers) shows the impending death of the American spirit.

How do nations slip from greatness to obscurity?

* Fighting endless wars they can't or won't win * Accumulating massive debt far beyond their ability to repay * Refusing to guard their borders, allowing the nation to be inundated by an alien horde * Surrendering control of their cities to mob rule * Allowing indoctrination of the young * Moving from a republican form of government to an oligarchy * Losing national identity * Indulging indolence * Abandoning God, faith and family - the bulwarks of any stable society.

In America, every one of these symptoms is pronounced, indicating an advanced stage of the disease.

Even if the cause seems hopeless, do we not have an obligation to those who sacrificed so much to give us what we had? I'm surrounded by ghosts urging me on: the Union soldiers who held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, the battered bastards of Bastogne, those who served in the cold hell of Korea, the guys who went to the jungles of Southeast Asia and came home to be reviled or neglected.

This is the nation that took in my immigrant grandparents, whose uniform my father and most of my uncles wore in the Second World War. I don't want to imagine a world without America, even though it becomes increasingly likely.

During Britain's darkest hour, when its professional army was trapped at Dunkirk and a German invasion seemed imminent, Churchill reminded his countrymen, 'Nations that go down fighting rise again, and those that surrender tamely are finished.'

The same might be said of causes. If we let America slip through our fingers, if we lose without a fight, what will posterity say of us?

While the prognosis is far from good. Only God knows if America's day in the sun is over."

Read it and weep, forward or erase it! I read it and am now forwarding it to you, believing that we in America are at the moment in time to stand up, or let it fall! We now may soon beat the next step in our country's future. I believe that it might be closer than we think.

When The Body Was First Made, All Its Parts Wanted To Be Boss.

THE BRAIN SAID : Since I control everything and do all the work I should be boss.

THE FEET SAID: Since I carry man where he wants to go and get him to do what the Brain wants, I should be boss.

THE HANDS SAID: Since I must do all the work and earn all the money to keep all the rest of you going, I should be boss.

THE EYES SAID: Since I must look out for all of you and tell you where danger lurks, I should be boss.

And so it went with the Heart, the Ears, and the Lungs.

Finally the Assh0le spoke up and demanded that he be boss. All the other parts laughed and laughed at the idea of an assh0le being boss.

The Assh0le was so angered that he blocked himself off and refused to function. Soon the Brain was feverish, the Eyes crossed and ached, the Feet were too weak to walk, the Hands hung limply at his side, the Heart and Lungs struggled to keep going.

All pleaded with the Brain to relent and let the Asshole be boss, and so it happened. All parts did the work and the Asshole just bossed and passed out a lot of sh!t.

MORAL: You don’t have to be a brain to be boss, just an Asshole.
