Sex, drugs, American idol and the NFL

March 19, 2014

In the eighteen hundreds, ten’s of thousands of people walked or rode in covered wagons across our country to new unexplored lands. Sometimes they traveled thousands of miles to find a place where they could build a home and a new life for themselves. With their own sweat and blood they cleared land and built homes for their families. They did not ask for help and for most none was offered. If today’s generation of young adults were somehow transported back in time and had to relive this feat, the majority would fail.

For the most part Americans today are a nation of sheep, never knowing that they have become nothing more than ‘domesticated humans’. When you do take the time to look up from your texting or TV and see that wrongs are being committed weather in Washington or around the world some people do, for a short time, get angry but it does not last long before you go back to the TV or head over to gym to work out and soon all is forgotten. Because so few people follow through with any tangible action to change the way things are done those who are in control continue to do whatever they want.

This nation has been domesticated, not overnight, but by a slow inexorable process of indoctrination and brainwashing. It may not have started with the explicit purpose of changing the very face of our country but the end result is the same….the America of today is not the America of 50 years ago. Some may say that this is a good thing and even I have to admit that there have been some positive changes in our society, but they are far outweighed by the loss of belief in God, family, morality and the almost total annihilation of pride in America.

OK your are asking where is the sex, drugs, NFL and American Idol I put in the title of this posting. It is all part of the matrix that has been weaved, by the powers that in actuality run our government and our world. ‘They’ create this matrix type of alternate world to occupy your mind and to keep you from taking any concrete action to change the way things are done. The people that settled this country had nothing to escape into when life went from hard to unbearable, so when England increased the tax on tea it was part of that final straw that moved these people from talk to action.

They did not just rollover and say there was nothing they could do they banded together and said enough is enough and declared their independence. Today we have higher taxes, massive loss of jobs, illegal people from other countries taking our tax dollars for free medical assistance and food. Plus government intervention in every aspect of our daily lives from what to teach our children in schools to which doctor we can see. We have a government that records our every phone call and email and says it knows better than we do how to spend our hard earned money by throwing it away supporting companies going broke and sending financial aid to countries that hate us.

What will it take to get you to put down that cell phone and remote?

 

Because there will never be a change in how Washington operates until we rise up as one voice

 

and shake the very foundations of our nations capitol

 

by saying enough we want our country back.

    I agree Pete and I’m no exception. I’ve gotten to the point though of zoning out when it comes to the corruption because there is little we can do about it. No matter WHO we vote for or WHAT party, it’s all the same. All I can do is pray…..

    A-MEN Pete! Until a majority of the population decides their attention needs to be diverted from ‘Dancing With The Stars’ or ‘WWF Wrestling’ let alone the damn cell phones nothing is going to change how the Washington power brokers do business. We really need the rebellion to start at the polls this year but then I said the same thing in 2012 and was bitterly disappointed. It may already be too late as the populace seems to be ‘okay’ with just letting the lame-stream media tell them what to think and who to vote into office. I’m sorry to say I believe its going to take a huge crisis, internal to the country, to shake things up. Said crisis will have to involve a collapse or disruption of infrastructure as in a massive power failing or an EMP based attack by a foreign power. Until something stings the average American where it truly hurts – in their bellies or in their comfortable lifestyle – they will continue on the road to serfdom. “None are so blind as those that will not see…”

    By the way, loved the moose image. I had a young cow foraging in my back yard a few days ago; she was very calm and well behaved when I walked out on the porch to get some pictures.

    The outrage is within many of us, but we know not what to do. How to faciliate change is the conundrum.

    Thanks to the advent of texting, a face to face conversation is becoming a thing of the past; something you can tell your great grand kids about. Every place I look around this city, people have their faces buried in their phones either reading their email or texting.
    A couple of Sundays back, we were in a restaurant & upon leaving, I noticed a father & son (I think) sitting at the table behind us, both of them absorbed in their phones instead of talking to one another. Sad, very sad.
