How much more can we take?

Murders, street crimes, shoplifting, trespassing, abuse of power, drugs, illegal immigration and open borders, election-tampering, homelessness, illiteracy, racism, corrupt politicians, vengeful district attorneys, child abuse, disregard for human life, a weakened military, the rise of authoritarianism, expanding ignorance, AI, CRT, DIE, poverty, inflation, radical environmentalism, gender fluidity, lowered standards and weakened values, flight from personal responsibility, death of the meritocracy…the list goes on, and it’s getting bigger by the day.

Thanks President Biden for your “luminary leadership”.

President Ronald Reagan described America as a shining city on a hill.  It is now an endless loop of Escape from New York and Clockwork Orange.

Those of us who mourn the passing of the Greatest Generation and everything it stood and fought for are, ourselves, fading away.  Some of us still find the strength to push back, but our numbers are declining.  Some of us are packing up and looking for a safe haven, where we can practice our religion and practice our values without apologizing for them or having to explain them to people.

The world today is clearly not our world.

We never dreamed that we would find ourselves stateless beings, living in a world of digital domination and artificial intelligence.  Nor did we think the unborn or the unwanted could be discarded like yesterday’s newspaper or that we would be glorifying deviants.

We are condoning the mutilation of our children if they express the slightest behavior that is inconsistent with their sex, and our doctors and hospitals are more than willing to do the dirty work of providing them with re-gendering medication that will halt their normal puberty

We have told our young sons that they are exhibiting “toxic masculinity” if they show strength on the football field or if they dare to pick up a hunting rifle or roughhouse on the front lawn with their friends

We are told “Guns kill people,” so guns must be eliminated.  Drugs, on the other hand, kill people, but they are allowed to proliferate and are even sanctioned by local and state governments.  “Light up that reefer” if you wish in 38 states.  “It’s good for you,” but you’d better not fire up a Cohiba.  Think of the damage to your lungs, not to mention the effects of secondhand smoke!

Before artificial intelligence takes over and convinces us that all of our problems are just a mirage, it might be wise to do a little stock-taking about just whom and what are to blame for the state of our precious Union

These are all undeniable facts

The KEY question is: What are you doing about it?
