“May you live in interesting times” Indeed we do. The southern U.S. has been struck by one Major Hurricane with another tearing through Florida. Much to the delight of the disciples of climate change who have been waiting over a decade for a big storm(s) to strike the U.S.
The evil Telly Tubby that rules North Korea has openly threatened the U.S. with an E.M.P. attack. Such an attack would be devastating to all of North America. How so, you might ask? Well think of 21st century America suddenly being knocked back to 1840. Think of life before electricity, refrigeration, cell phones, telephones, television, radio, automobiles et. al. When the nations aging electrical grid gets fried that’s what is going to happen. and it will not be repaired overnight. America has never experienced famine like many socialist countries have. That is how serious that can be.
Another little “can” that the legislature has constantly kicked down the road is the National debt. And the debt ceiling it appears that it’s going to be raised again to pay for not one but two devastating hurricanes. Taking measures for natural disasters is one thing but this cannot go on. The national debt is nearly 20 Trillion dollars. And lets not even talk about unfunded liabilities.
Today America is probably more divided now then at anytime since the Civil War. For that we can thank fifty years of, hell no more like eighty years of slow insidious indoctrination of American citizens and the body politic to Marxism.
They have taken over academia, all the way down to kindergarten, the media, down to the local level, and they have completely taken over the Democrat party. JFK would not recognized it today.
And the Republican establishment is next to worthless, loving their perks and power more then their country and its Constitution.
Together they make up the “Deep State” and their goal is to ensure that “government of the people, by the people, for the people'” does indeed perish from the earth.
Of course they call themselves “Progressives”, the progress to historical inevitability.
Coupled with the previous administrations eight years of turning over every rock to expose the tiniest hint of racism. And if they couldn’t find it then created it out of whole cloth. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of a color blind society is further away then ever.
We are certainly living in “interesting times”.
Yet we can try to keep things in prospective. On more then one occasion our country has faced deep crisis.
Abraham Lincoln on the eve of a national crisis that was to become the Civil War gave reference to this fable to give him comfort.
It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: “And this too shall pass away” How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction!
The American Civil War happened because the “can” was kicked to the end of the road.
Today another “end of the road” is approaching fast. And only God knows what will happen.
