OK, here’s a plan.

In Advice For The People Running Biden ghostsniper notes: John A Fleming sed: “We’ve backed ourselves into a mess, we have.”
========
Some have, some haven’t. All must pay attention. There are producers and there are parasites and many ride in between.

Stay the course, I say, for yourself. You can’t change others but through example, but you can change yourself, instantly. So keep producing, keep bettering yourself, keep moving forward, and try your best to ignore others and lessen their impact upon you.

Country? Where?

There is no national allegiance because there is no nation, just one big free-for-all. This place, defined by imaginary lines on a globe, is mostly illusory and bogus.

Local, local, local.

Your sphere of influence, both ways, decreases as radius increases. They, way over there, have little influence over you nor should you let them distract you from your goals.

That old phrase is still true, “Do the right thing.”

Peace, Onward.

    Very good. I like that. “Do the right thing”, or as my Dad used to tell us boys, Take the high road.

  • Bunny April 2, 2021, 10:35 AM

    Did I first see this here? At any rate, it seems apropos to Terry’s comment and the subject matter. Apologies if it’s a repeat.

    Absolutely correct that local, local, local and leading by example within your sphere of influence is key to improving one’s situation.

    However, there are powerful forces at work and they are working very hard in a coordinated effort to undo the concept of America (a concept that I believe in my heart is a good one – not perfect but good) and all she stands for. I have always held that our system has a tremendous ability to self-correct….but after the stealing of a national election I am given pause to wonder if that is simply a delusion. A confirmation bias. I fear that while many have been awakened and angered at what has transpired just within the past 12 months, there is much confusion, disinformation, wishful thinking and plain ongoing ignorance (willful or otherwise). These are not from whence a winning strategy evolve.

    Additionally, and not to pick nits, but “doing the right thing” is quite subjective. In fact, I came to despise a variation of the term as put forward by one of my least favorite phony con-men Barry Obama – “because it’s the right thing to do”. In my judgement, and I base my judgements on deeds not words, people like Obama, Biden and their ilk wouldn’t know the “right thing” if they were hit squarely in the face with it.

    Some links, if Uncle Gerard will be so gracious as to allow them:

    …and then kill all your devices!

    The rot within, not just academia and big tech, but also infiltration of government agencies (Federal, State and major city officials), Wall St. partnerships with foreign actors is nothing new, I suppose, but even well known think-tanks have been/are being influenced by communism as promoted by the government of China.

    Go read or listen to this report on The National Pulse from Raheem Kassam and Natalie Winters.

    I used to think that the Chinese and the Russians are playing serious chess and team USA is playing checkers. Now, I believe the Chinese and others are playing chess and team USA is actually playing tidily-winks!

    As I process all of the information I have consumed and I assess my abilities, my age, weaknesses, and strengths, and finally my resources I have to say I am a bit overwhelmed….and so I pray.

    My best regards to all AD readers on this Good Friday.

    @Bunny, I looked at that vid and the first thing that stabbed me in the eye was him saying, “I used to want to be a real man, I don’t know what that even mean”. There was other stuff in there that was grating too.

    Then I looked a little deeper.
    “What’s surprised you most about Trump so far?”
    “The Trump presidency has convinced me that we are living in a post-Christian America. I could see how a lot of conservative right-wing Christian Americans would vote for someone like Mitt Romney, who seems like a stand-up guy. But Trump is obviously not a good Christian person. I think the fact that so many people voted for him means that there aren’t that many good Christian people left in rural America. God is gone from those people.”

    He is a mental parasite – the worst kind.

  • EX-Californian Pete April 2, 2021, 12:52 PM

    Funny, someone calling Mitt Romney a Christian.
    He’s actually a Mormon.

    And yeah, Jason Isbell sounds like a real SFB, and traitor to his roots.

    Strange, almost optimistic thought:
    Things ain’t lookin’ so good, but consider the fifteen year span: If you were 62 in 1939, things would be looking pretty bad. And they would be. But your 77th birthday would fall in 1954. Have Faith. Do not abandon Hope. On this day, it wasn’t looking so good for Jesus’ pals either.

    Lynching wasn’t first invented in 1844 and then served upon Joseph Smith, but he was sure deserving of it. It’s because of people like Joseph Smith why lynching is such a tradition. I don’t know WHAT Mitt Romney is except extremely harmful, toxic and evil. The Mormon M.O. is to obtain as much wordly riches as possible because this is the loot you’re taking to Mormon Paradise Eternity. For Romney and his ilk, planet Earth is simply Trick or Treats. And Mittens is a pro at devising the tricks so he can get the most treats. Read “Under the Banner of Heaven” by Jon Krakauer. I don’t think Stephen King couldn’t dream up a more diabolical plot.

    Thanks for the heads up on Isbell, Ghost. Ugh. There must be more than one way of interpreting the lyrics and my way is probably exactly opposite of what the lyricist intended. I still like the song, though. I guess it gets back to previous discussions of separating the art from the artist.

  • Tom Hyland April 2, 2021, 2:59 PM

    Sure wish you had an edit button here, Gerard. I meant to write “could” not “couldn’t”. Then with an edit button I’d delete most of my stuff, after I’ve calmed down.

  • anonymous April 2, 2021, 3:11 PM

    OK. So how long do we have to wait to find out what race the man was who just attacked two police officers at the White House? He is dead, but so is one of the policemen.

    There seem to be three behaviors to respond to the coming troubles. I do not believe it is clear which is better, each must decide for themselves.

    The first is to join the troublemakers, tear down the old, cleanse the earth, start afresh.

    There is Isaiah’s remnant. Be the grey man, survive the troubles with your principles and faith intact. But if and when the troubles arrive at your doorstep, there will be no escape, to have a chance of survival you must betray all you hold dear for that is nature of the beast.

    There is Gamgee’s regiment. “There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.” Knowing full well Frodo’s rejoinder, “It must often be so, Sam, when things are in danger: some one has to give them up, lose them, so that others may keep them.”

    These last two must be partners, else they both will perish and it will be long before the good rises again.

    The good of the United States is human liberty. Alone among nations for all history, that is its objective. Some say “Bah, we never had it anyway, it was a fraud, let the USA fall”. Some seem to say “Liberty is shown to be a failure, it’s time to bring back the reign of the tyrants”. And some say “I’m after power, and this is the moment and the method to seize it.”

    I say Liberty is worth fighting for, though I know not the way. But darn it, being a grey man sure it tempting. Except if I’m commenting on this blog, grey I am no longer.

    JWM, well said.

    There seems to be this tentacle around my waist that compels me to make a stand. Call it High Noon syndrome. My granddad did not leave Germany, in 1900, to find an unfree land. Well, except for the homestead act, that is. My dad did not go to Italy for his health (in 1945).

    Nope. Can’t leave it alone. I only regret being an old fart, but try to remember I have some mad ass skills at this point in time. You have to start somewhere.

    GD that amm o costs an arm and a leg these days. Too bad I have nothing to go it in…
