The ‘new world order’ of 2014?
I woke up early on Tuesday for my trip to Fairbanks and while the coffee brewed I thought about the day ahead. I knew it was Tuesday because that is my assigned travel day. One of the four days a month when I am allowed to use my truck to travel to town. I was almost half way to town when I realized I had to go back because I had my handgun in the truck and since they passed the new firearm laws no one was allowed to have a firearm within the city limits. So back I went realizing that I was also burning way to much gasoline and would not have enough on my fuel ration card to get a full tank, but what was I going to do I had to make the trip to see my Doctor and restock my food supply.
I got to town a little late and went straight to my doctors office for my appointment. The doctor told me after he was done that I should have surgery but because of my age under the new government guidelines I was indeed to old to have it. Under the 2013 government managed healthcare guidelines people over 65 had a sliding scale of what medical procedures we were allowed to get, and seeing I was now 68 I was SOL. The doctor did say that when the pain got worse, under these same guidelines, it was legal for him to prescribe medicine that would solve all my problems.
Later when I finished shopping for my food the cashier scanned my wrist for my personal ID but it didn’t read the implanted government ID chip. She was almost ready to call for a soldier to check it out when the scanner finally registered my chip. Did I really look like ‘those’ people that are living off the grid and refusing to get an embedded chip? I know here in Alaska there were many who lived in the woods that still clung to their guns and bibles always talking about the freedoms they had in the old days, but I had caved many years ago.
So after I stopped to put whatever gasoline my ration card said I was entitled to into my truck I headed home. I didn’t even stop at the used book store, a favorite place for me over the years where I spent many hours browsing and surfing the internet. Now most shelves in the store were empty because of the ban on seditious reading material plus the fact that the government had shut down most of the internet especially the blogs. Yes in this day and age blogs were dangerous. People still thought they were free to post whatever they felt, until one of the government internet sniffer programs found your writing and you were arrested, or taken out by a government sanctioned drone attack, for making threats against the government.
I do not know but it was either the bear roast being a little old or maybe I let it get warm too long before cooking, but something made me sick last night and gave me one hell of a dream. I woke up remembering bits and pieces of that new world order and in the darkness of my cabin I felt a shiver go through my spine…
Yes but everything I wrote about is based
on proposals and laws currently in force or being considered.
