In Other Words

The following column is from Mark Steyn, and worth a look in light of current events.

I’ll be putting my own thoughts together soon, but in the meantime Mr. Steyn says things very well. Enjoy.

Ghost In The Machine

They want you to think they’re clowns.

What you see, sometimes, is not what you see. By 2016 the rules governing the ability of the U.S. government to use military propoganda operations against its own citizens were changed by Barack Obama. Old news? Ok, well how’s it working out so far?  It sure has been an eventful and difficult few years since the rules have changed, hasn’t it?

https://www.technocracy.news/obama-signs-countering-disinformation-propaganda-act/

What does it mean? It means that everything that has happened since, every media byte, every narrative swallowed and regurgitated, every internet trope is a result of this fundamental change, oops, I mean “transformation”.

Here is the US military psyops ad. It’s full of Easter Eggs, if you want to go down the rabbit hole they have constructed for you. Watch it.

Huh, that was weird.

Your government has used – and is using- its military intelligence apparatus against its own people. The results are all around you. The ongoing and never-ending cycle of crisis after crisis? The “existential” and emotional fear over every possible eventuality? The assault on every front? Gender, race, the environment, energy, food, property…all in flux and in a state of confusion. Can you feel it?

Confuse your enemy. Addle them. Give them so many plates to spin that they can focus on nothing else. Think. Take yourself as far out from the symphonic cacophony as you can, and try to hear each instrument individually.  Chaotic noise? Yes. Conducted orchestra nonetheless? Yes.

They have defined an enemy, and they work against them. So, let me ask you, whom do you think their enemy is?

” If your enemy is superior, evade them. If they are angry, irritate them.” – Sun Tzu

“Everyone sees what you appear to be, but few experience what you really are.” – Niccolo Machiavelli

Shout At The Devil

I’m tired of this shit. I’m tired of defending myself like I’m some sort of nun attempting to squash you telling “your truth” or living “your best life”. I’m not going to acquiescence any more to the pondering of the illiterate, narcissistic, and stupid.

I will not repeat lies or accept the absurd. I know what makes a man or a woman and can define it, no matter how much mutilation, make-up, and make-believe you employ. Slavery is not freedom, and owning nothing isn’t being happy, it is being a dependent and a serf.

Skin color means nothing except for how long you can be outside without sunscreen.  I will not judge a black person a victim,  a white person an oppressor, nor the reverse. I will judge you based on who you are.

I’m weary of the dramatics and childish antics of LARPing morons dressing up like the ridiculous characters from the mediocrity-of-fiction known as “The Handmaid’s Tale”. You want to live in a state that let’s you sacrifice your baby to Molloch so you don’t have to take any responsibility for rutting like a mindless animal? Then show up and vote where you live.

I don’t pretend that all kids come into a great world with great parents…but I also don’t pretend that murdering another human being because you made some drunken choices in your backseat after the club or Homecoming is being brave. ‘My body, my choice” is what an unborn baby screams. It’s also what an unvaccinated adult merely requests.

I’m not a priest, nor am I a pastor. There is no official denomination for my faith. All I DO know, is that a great evil is underway. A ceaseless and unforgiving undertow claws at our feet, as the firmament erodes beneath them.  A sickly and powerful pulling tugs at us all, sinking us further into the sand.

The solution is easy, but also incredibly dangerous. RISE.  Fight the seemingly indomitable tide. Join me, stand up, regain your footing…and shout at the Devil.

“Might be anger on your lips, might run scared for the door. But in seasons of wither, we’ll stand and deliver…be strong and shout at the devil.” – Motley Crue

 

It’s A SADS, SADS Situation

You want to hear something weird? There’s a new affliction in town, and regardless of what you are being told, no one’s really heard of it before.  Well, before now, that is.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10895067/Doctors-trying-determine-young-people-suddenly-dying.html

Evidently, now you can expire prematurely from “Sudden Adult Death Syndrome”. Healthy people are dropping dead, and the medical sciences community’s answer is, “Nothing to see here”. 

 So what if young people are getting messed up? I, for one, have seen people my age and younger get facial paralysis and die from heart attacks routinely… not. Justin Bieber is now “Two-Face” from the Batman comics and his wife has had a brain hemorrhage. Totally normal for all these well-known young people to exhibit what was once a very rare condition for their age and health status. You know, like myocarditis. 

 Sure, they’re dropping dead on the field during High School practice, or your 40-something coworker that was fit and healthy “died unexpectedly”, but that happens, right? Well, not really.  At least not in my almost half a century of experience.  

Shingles? Yeah, you’ve heard of it. Older people without a childhood case of  Chicken Pox get it. Or got it. Before now, that is. Now it’s an epidemic. And why is it that AIDS and HIV medication ads are now everywhere? I get it if I look up refrigerators and that’s all the ads I see for a month, but AIDS meds? What do the marketing people know that we don’t? 

 

Something stinks. People who keep getting poked over and over again keep getting Covid, over and over again. Others are dealing with health issues they shouldn’t be. 

https://www.republicworld.com/world-news/rest-of-the-world-news/canada-pm-justin-trudeau-tests-positive-for-covid-19-again-urges-canadians-to-get-vaccine-articleshow.html

 What have we unleashed on the world? Is it intentional? The Pfizer CEO is on record wanting to cut world population by half… https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2022/pfizer-ceo-albert-bourla-video-reduce-population-50-percent-fact-check/

Oh, my bad…that’s “misinformation”. It was totally out of context. Actually,  the original video and link are scrubbed. Oddly, many of the links to these stories are memory-holed quickly. Why would that be? Thankfully there are fact-checkers out there to keep me straight. 

Think of it…this is just one aspect of what befalls us. Economy, energy, inflation, war, crime, revolution…on every issue you are being asked to believe the absurd and ignore your lying eyes. Are you? Maybe you have Guillain-Barre syndrome or something…I hear it’s going around. 

“It’s sad, so sad. It’s a sad, sad situation, and it’s getting more and more absurd.” – Bernie Taupin 

The Rainbow Never Ends

 

Taste the Rainbow!

I get it. No, I really do. You want to love who you want, how you want. You want the freedom to not be harassed, and for your specific and private sexual life choices to be tolerated by others who may not agree or understand, for whatever reasons. Ok, now what?

Well, I don’t know about you, but my perception is that those aforementioned goals were met, and now everyone can do whatever they want as consenting adults. Government and corporations alike not only approve of, but actively promote and endorse the allegedly oppressed Alphabet Community. Everywhere I am assaulted with one’s “private” choices, there is no escape from them it seems, and now I must not just tolerate these choices but celebrate, congratulate, and participate in them.

So whom is it that is the oppressor here, and who is the oppressed? Whose lifestyle is attacked, and whose is applauded? 

I’m not trying to trigger anyone, to the extent I give a damn. Truth be told, I don’t care. I really, really don’t care. I want no part of your sex life, and I don’t want you to be involved in mine, either. I don’t want kids involved, and I thought we had an understanding about that, but you’re beyond pushing it in that department.  Also, I’m not to be called a “cis” anymore than someone else should be called a “f@g”. Isn’t there enough division? Devising fake words to insult and degrade others is unacceptable, is it not? Is that really how we’re going to proceed? I thought, again, that we were past that.

While we’re at it, my “identity”, whatever stupid, pampered, 1st-world-construct that is, isn’t the fleshy tingly parts I have and where I put them. If it was, what a sad and pitiful existence that would be. Life is hard enough, and I can’t imagine someone building that life on nothing more than what gives them the “O-Face”. How tragically pathetic.  Are people so desperate for affirmation of their shallow and narcissistic existence? Too bad, because real life doesn’t offer that. I promise. 

This fixation on sex and self isn’t just gross, it’s destructive. Civilizations in collapse become obsessed with this kind of thing, and once again – on yet another existential subject – history is repeating. I’m starting to think that no matter how far we go, there’s never going to be an end to the rainbow.

“This has happened before…history is cyclic, and everywhere in the world you find this pattern in ancient times. That as a culture declines, you have an effervescence of transgender phenomena. That is the symptom of cultural collapse”. – Camille Paglia, American Feminist 

Removing The Beam

Let’s get something out of the way right from the beginning. Honest self-reflection is a difficult but necessary endeavor if you’re ever going to discover where you are, how you got there, and where you are going. Most people these days are incapable of performing this exercise, for a myriad of reasons. Let me simplify the calculation required for your enlightenment: If in your assessment of yourself and your experiences you are always either the righteous hero, or the hapless victim, then you live in a state of delusion. 

First, realize that no one is born with this ability, so don’t get all up in your feefies about it. No one likes to be wrong, and some will never be able to admit it when they are. But if you really want to live your life with a view of something other than the inside of your own ass, it’s time to start “adulting”.

This philosophy has a very wide applicability. From individuals to groups, and from ideas to governments, the equation is the same. Before you say to yourself, “What does this clown know?”. Well, let me assure you…it took a long time, longer than it should have, but this revelation about shattering one’s own illusions came from personal experience. 

A dose of healthy skepticism is a great prescription for everyone when pondering any issue, especially the affairs of one’s government. However, many people seem incapable of applying that skepticism to their own beliefs, opinions, and worldview.  Most know that they can’t trust “authoritative sources” on most anything, yet many also fail to recognize that their own personal narrative can be just as untrustworthy. The veracity of one’s own opinion and position must be questioned, investigated, and challenged. If you think you practice this theory, but are unable to find flaws in your own argument, you are deceived. No one is right all of the time, and to think otherwise is folly. 

We live in a world of lies. Each of us faces a veritable hurricane of untruth everyday. No one tasked with telling you the truth is actually doing so. My humble advice would be that before you scream and yell about what others are doing, take a look in the mirror. You may not be as righteous as you think, especially if you ignore the beam in your own eye while screaming and pointing at the speck in someone else’s. 

“You hypocrite! Take the log from your own eye, then you may see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s” – Matthew 7:5

The Great Escape

 

As far as I can tell, there is a war going on in Eastern Europe. From what I can gather, Ukraine – a 30 year old country formally part of the Soviet Union- has been invaded by the Russian Federation- also a 30 year old country formally part of the Soviet Union.  If you’ve been paying attention, and many people have not, Russia has been very obvious about its intentions to re-absorb its lost territory after the fall of the USSR in 1989. It took Georgia under Bush/Cheney, then Crimea under Obama/Biden, and now Russia is moving to take Ukraine under Biden/Harris. Tellingly, Russian aggression was successfully deterred by the embattled Trump administration, a fact that is being furiously rewritten and spun by the American Aristocracy and its media puppets.

If you came here to get all the facts about this invasion, I have bad news for you. Despite my best efforts, from many, many sources, I can confidently tell you there is virtually no information that isn’t clouded in the stink of propoganda.  Seriously.  Literally every story out of the conflict zone has turned out to be fake. There is no “Ghost of Kyiv” clearing the skies of Russian MiGs for example, that was a YouTube meme. That didn’t prevent Adam Kinzinger (R),  and many others actually serving in government, from posting the meme while calling for war.

The media is STILL desperately pushing that bit of propoganda via its usual cavalcade of “fact checkers” and Twitter goons. Are our rulers that stupid, or are they lying in gargantuan fashion? I honestly can’t tell, and can’t tell you, which is worse. If you have, or are, falling for some of this I can’t blame you, it’s being pushed harder than covaids vaccinations for healthy, not-at-risk children.

Americans have a well-documented ethos when it comes to underdogs. We generally root for them. Americans also used to be pragmatic, problem solving, and patriotic, but now are increasingly narcissistic, emotional, stupid and intellectually childish. An aggressive nonstop war agenda, paired with heart-rending pictures of bloodied women and children, are winnowing the will of the public. I’ve been at a loss to understand the high polling in support of escalating this mess into a nuclear World War 3, but I think now I understand. This is their chance, either consciously or not, to make a great escape from their choices and the consequences of them.

No matter where you look, Western governments have descended into authoritarian tyranny. Whether by design or by accident, the covid response destroyed individual rights, personal liberty and responsibility. Every action taken by those in power has been wrong, yet there are no admissions of guilt or any apologies. Lies, gaslighting, racism, and incompetence are the currency of the elite, and they’re going for broke before the casino closes. At the same time, trust and faith in every Western institution by its citizenry has vanished like a fart in a hurricane. We are living through what some call “The Great Reset”, and what I call “The Great Collapse”, but not everyone is on board, and those that aren’t are getting restless with their school board recalls, anti-mandate protests, and trucker convoys. Evidently the purposeful destruction of currency, liberty, education, gender, race, national identity and rational  thought isn’t being tolerated well enough, so a great big distraction is in order.

War is the ultimate eraser. The dirty Biden family corruption, and the corruption of many others, can be washed clean in Ukraine by the blood of the innocent. All of the tyranny and stupidity of the ruling class can be wiped away in the fervor and emotion of war, gaining them power, wealth, and cover while insuring nothing but suffering for everyone else. And the best part? They’ll manipulate you into cheering for it, if they haven’t already.

This isn’t about personality. I have much respect for the Ukrainian president Zelensky and the Ukrainian people, and I pray for peace. Going up against Putin and Russia is suicide for them, and they’re fighting anyway. I also know that Putin justifies his actions under the auspices of the reunification of historic territory and culture, as well as access to resources and ports in order to forestall Russia’s fall into a demographic black hole. I would advise you to remove emotion from your deliberations, and to acknowledge that there is no way to currently know what’s really happening in Ukraine. However, one can easily observe what’s happening in America and the West, and it’s a disaster. Inflation, crime, a coming real estate crash, debt, disinformation, division, and demagoguery surround us in a malodorous miasma that permeates every atom. Will we give the clowns and buffoons that have brought us to the edge of the abyss the power to push us over? Have they found their Great Escape?

Everything Is All White


We hear much about racism these days. In fact, we’ve been told, conditioned you might say, that systemic and foundational racism is the driver of every dynamic in our society in the 21st century.

Never you mind that most people don’t understand the difference between prejudice, which cannot be conquered, and racism, which can be conquered. Defeating racism requires only enforcing codified equal representation and legal and constitutional equality. Prejudice is then made moot by the inability for one to act on it. For instance, one may dislike – or be prejudiced against for some reason- a peer in a work environment, but it is still illegal, unethical, and immoral for one to subject that peer to differential treatment, and the loss of one’s livelihood and their reputation will be the result. Another example would be a property owner – whether an individual or a corporate entity – not renting or selling that property to someone based on their prejudice, whatever that prejudice may be. Laws exist specifically to prevent this, and to punish those that do not abide by them.

With that said, I have been troubled over the last few years with the rise of government and corporate “diversity, inclusion, and equity” directives. Sure, kicking the dead and rotting carcass of slavery and the civil rights movement for “educational” purposes is fine, but dividing, shaming, berating, and now discriminating against others based on immutable inherited qualities like skin color isn’t just hateful and counterproductive, it’s (gasp!) racist.

In response to this new anti-racism racism, I set myself on a quest to find an example of socially accepted and promoted racism. An example so egregious and blatant that my opinion would be swayed regarding institutional and corporate racism. Well folks, I found it, and I’d like to share it with you so that you can admit to the racism that, in fact, DOES exist all around you.  Please watch the following clip in its entirety and share this article with others. Remember, the fight to end racism starts with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ2f5OVZ7Oo

“Find out just what any people will quietly submit to, and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.” – Frederick Douglass

Fear Itself

I am this guy. Are you, or are you the rest of them?

A famous president once advised the Nation that “the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself”. I wish that were so. But as someone once said, “Fill one hand with wishes, and the other with sh!t, and see which one fills up first”. Wise words indeed.

 With the fake president and fake administration now engorged and excited about the 6th Circuit Court decision upholding its fascist mandate for an experimental drug, they are confident that the Supreme Court will also uphold this view, and set the destruction of your privacy and autonomy over your own body into stone.

I agree with their confidence. We now live, after the last 5 years of tumult, in a post-constitutional America. 1st amendment? Nah. 10th? Nah. 2nd? Nah.

What about international law, as in the case of the Nuremberg Code, which prohibits people from being required to submit involuntarily to medical testing and treatments they refuse? That law was put in place to prevent what the Nazis did to their holocaust victims, but now they want to change it. Why? Because Big Pharma and their Government collaborators want to be your new Dr. Mengele, without any threat of repercussion.

What a fancy suit.

Here in the new Amerika, the new Soviet Union, we have our own insane “doctor”, the same one that killed thousands of AIDS patients with AZT, that hasn’t seen an actual patient in 45 years. A serial liar, the funder of the Wuhan lab and the virus, the co- owner of Mrna treatments now mislabeled as “vaccines”. If you disagree then explain to me why the CDC changed the definition of “vaccine” and “vaccinated” in the last 4 months.

The highest paid government employee, the fraud and incompetent Fauci.

Wear a mask. Don’t wear a mask. Wear two masks. Get one shot. Get two shots. Get a booster. Take a pill twice a day. Get a booster 3 times a year. The vaccinated are protected. The vaccinated can’t get it or spread it. It’s a pandemic of the unvaxxed.  The vaccinated can get it and spread it. Variants are created by the unvaxxed. Variants are created by the vaccinated.  There is no natural immunity. Get vaccinated to help natural immunity. And on and on…all illogical, all control, all fear porn.

And worse, companies are swallowing this feces whole, and loving the taste. More than 100 employees? Screw you, get vaxxed and boosted, or hit the pavement…no unemployment for you. I guess Covid ignores smaller companies, and that the 3 month timeline ignored the spread of Coof as well. In addition,  now your garbage employer, already shoving the evils of “whiteness” down your throat, as well as promoting racist simpletons to positions of power, is going to be the arbiter of your personal health status? Well, if that’s the case, I want to know which of my coworkers has AIDS, Herpes, Hepatitis, or HPV. I don’t want to be exposed to their “disgusting” diseases, and it poses a  risk to me and my family.

Contagious!

This is all based in fear. Not mine, as I recovered from Covid over a year ago, and in the course of the last 14 months I have been exposed repeatedly to many people with Covid, even recently.  Guess what? Nada. Nothing. Zilch. On the other hand, I know many “vaccinated” and “boosted” folks who are catching it, AND spreading it.

Covid sucks. Having it sucked. I feel for the afraid among us, and I know people who have died or were struck with severe illness. I myself still suffer effects. But there is no “science” to our response, and there is no logic to it either. In the face of mounting evidence that this experimental treatment at the best offers little protection, and at worst is an extremely harmful drug with unforeseen consequences, I cannot abide it being forced upon me, or anyone else. I also cannot abide giving incompetent corporations and government access to my body. I will not comply, I have earned that right, even if I thought I wasn’t born with it…which we all were.

We are all adrift on our own little ship, that sails on the sea of life. Yes, if things get rough, we can rig the sails, batten down the hatches, bail out the water, and do the best we can…but the ocean makes its moves and rises and falls of its own accord, and if the storm rages, it rages. It does no good to stand on the deck and scream to the wind that the storm and the swells are unfair, because they are what they are, and their control is out of our grasp. Fear in this situation is warranted and natural, but we must act with pragmatism and reason to survive the squall. That’s not what we’re doing, and the current course of action cannot be maintained, because all of our ships are sinking. Fear can be a warning, but in most cases it is paralyzing and causes you to make the worst decisions. I’m tired of other’s fear ruling my life and future, as well as the lives and future of those I will leave behind. I will not be dragged to the bottom by the gasping and clutching grip of those wrought with fear and panic, that want nothing other than for us all to drown.

Live And Let Die

As I look around today, I have to wonder…has my philosophy been wrong all this time? Whether political, religious, or personal, I have always believed in “live and let live”. You do you, I’ll do me, and if we don’t agree, fine…we can talk about music or movies or shared life experience. Not everything has to be politics, right?

So, imagine my sadness as I reminisce about all the important issues that we’ve all been fighting for, for so long, and won. Yet now those victories seem to have evaporated, and those who used to be allies in these fights are now enemies.


Women’s rights used to be something we all could fight for. Now, however, it’s the rights of men pretending to be women that take precedent. Either victims of, or grifters for, the social hysteria that is “gender identity” are now supplanting actual women for their place in society. Women are unique and special, and different from men in the same way that men are different from women. A “Ying and Yang” type of synergy of the sexes was finally realized and codified as equality under the law, and in culture, before the end of the 20th century. But alas, I guess this was indeed not a victory, because now there is a new women’s rights movement, except it’s for men.

Stunning and Brave. The best woman in college swimming, at UPenn, beating the 2nd place by 38 seconds.

Yes, UPenn has a new women’s swimming champ, except there’s only one problem…that’s a 6 foot 7 man, baby.

And this is just one of many of these situations that are emerging. With the Olympics now giving the A-OK to this stuff, expect lots of odd bulges on the winner’s podium. I don’t think this is women’s rights, but to the former advocates for women’s rights, that opinion is hate.

Equal rights is another thing we all used to be able to fight for. People should be judged by their character, not the color of their skin, right? A long and horrible fight, including a civil war and then another 100 years of struggle, finally bore fruit, and again, equality under the law won its victory.

But not now. Now, segregated college graduations, segregated spaces, and segregated classes are becoming the norm on college campuses. As could be expected, what starts at the top rolls downhill, so now corporate D.I.E. ( Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity ) divisions spout anti-racism racism, and so do the highest levels of government and law. Even the old racism of “separate but equal” and the “one drop rule”, now seem quaint, because currently it’s all superficial melanin content and “separate and elevated”. So again, the victory, this time of equal rights, is made moot. A twice-elected black president, a majority of American entertainment billionaires being black, as well as minority over-representation in almost every avenue of society, are now somehow proof of a fundamental, systemic, foundational, institutional, and even infrastructural racism…even though statistics do not back up such ridiculous arguments.  But once more, my opinion is hate, and my former allies for equal rights, equality under the law, and a colorblind society are now my enemies.

I view every life as sacred, and I would strongly advocate for each life conceived to be allowed to breach the void of existence and become another unique and wonderful creation, capable of all things great or horrible. My life, your life, is a gift…whether we waste it or not. To never have been able to live, to think these thoughts now and convey them to you…I can’t imagine being denied these things for no fault of my own. But that said, there will always be those who advocate for a different perspective, and the law has so far agreed with their argument of “my body, my choice”. Though we agreed that certain circumstances require difficult options, now I have to agree with not just “safe, legal, and rare”, but to delivering a viable person and snuffing them out for convenience?

Say what you want about the “pro-choice” movement, the essential message was that a person should have autonomy over their own body. Now though, these same advocates for choice want the authorities to control your medical care over an experimental vaccine, that as of this moment the definition of, requirements for, and repercussions of, are unknown.  So…am I to respect their opinion about their own bodies, but not my own?  Be honest, is it about each person choosing, or is it about you choosing for everyone else?

On to another taboo subject. Born this way? Really? Are you? We all agreed on that, didn’t we? We all agreed, and fought for, the rights of people to love who they want and enjoy the benefits of marriage and equal treatment, didn’t we? While politicians on both sides balked, good people of all backgrounds agreed that people were who they were, born into their identity, and they shouldn’t be persecuted or punished for it.

But now, every new sexually confused and social hysteria suffering person is lumped into this category. “Minor Attracted Persons” is a thing? Millions of young girls ace-bandaging their boobs down and pretending to be men, coincidently at the same age that peer pressure and the desire for social acceptance becomes imperative? Young boys, at the suggestion of their moms and pink-haired, leftist teachers, suddenly want to dress and act like a Disney Princess, even though no such behavior was observable before interference from people in positions of authority with an ideological bent?

No good can come from this, none. People in positions of power are taking the young in their care, breaking them, and then celebrating their brokenness as a victory for their ideology.  If people are born the way that they are, then why are so many kids deciding they are something else? This is obviously harmful and hysterical, and I don’t buy it. So those that once I could agree with, I cannot now, so they are my enemies.

Totally not social hysteria and societal pressure at work, in kids and their virtue-signaling parents. Hollywood breeds this, ask Liev Schreiber. That’s his son.

What about freedom of speech, and freedom from government persecution? Didn’t we all agree that covert agencies spying on Americans and using illegal tactics against them was bullshit? Isn’t the CIA, NSA, and the FBI the baddies? I saw all those “Jason Bourne” movies years ago, so I thought that we all agreed and were fighting for the dissolution of this kind abuse of power.

Oops, wrong again. My former allies in the fight against these evil entities are now all in for their tyranny. I now have to hear incessantly about the False Flag operation, oh sorry, I mean the Capitol Insurrection, with life-in-prison or death for the participants when it looked like this…

As opposed to the “Summer of Love” in places like Portland, Oregon…where for months attacks on federal property looked like this…

Or this…

Lies and propaganda rule the day, and those I used to find solidarity with in the fight against abuse of government power, are now committed to that same abuse against their ideological foes. They want an end to my privacy, my autonomy, and my opinion. They want to end my speech and my ability to voice it.  That makes them my enemy.

My, how things change.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of my fellow citizens now, without any self-awareness, have decided…in a religious fashion,…to turn their previous beliefs around 180 degrees. What used to be polite disagreements are now mandates, demands, and dictates. What used to be absent of leftist politics is now the embodiment of it. There is no escape, no compromise, no room for discussion. That’s not my choice, and it’s never been my philosophy. I’ve always believed in “live and let live”…but now, backed into the corner, with these stakes, I have no choice but to admit I was wrong. It’s no longer “live and let live “, but instead “live and let die”.

 ” When you were young and your heart was troubled, you used to say live and let live…you know you did. But if this ever changing world in which we live in, makes you give in and cry…say live and let die.” – The Beatles
