“We are a lost society, ruled by emotions, captured by technology, misinformed, uneducated, indifferent, fearful, passively accepting of whatever government and media tell them is true, and entranced by materialism funded by debt.” Jim Quinn
Well! That’s harsh! But is he wrong?
As of this scribbling, America is not in a good place. If asked – and they were – most honest people agree, according to every recent poll. The Rose-Colored Glasses Brigade, Spin Doctors Unanimous and other professional propagandists would emphatically say otherwise. Of course.
But wait? Could they be the ones with the untrammeled vision of 20-20 insight? Of course! If pigs wore lipstick and flew under the Brooklyn Bridge in the marshlands that you’re buying for $10. If you’re totally divorced from any semblance of reality, this is the Way, Truth and Light you’ve heard so much about. C’mon, man!
Similarly, the Deplorables, formerly known as Tea Party now Domestic Terrorists, White Supremacists and MAGA Conservatives are all a ’quiver, anticipating the pending Great Red Wave in early November! Sadly, current indications are an anemic Red Ripple may dampen the floors of Congress instead – and only in the House. Supreme Senate Minority Turtle, Mitch McConnell tossed in the Terrible Towel recently with this uber-downer: “Flipping the Senate, what are the chances? It’s a 50-50 proposition.”. That’s Leadership right up there with Georg Custer, Pee Wee Herman, and Kamala Harris. And now there’s Mitch’s “Come Hither” play!
Still, WSJ’s Kim Strassel remains the cockeyed optimist:
“Let’s see how that holds when a future Republican Justice Department starts raiding the homes of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, James Comey, and John Brennan.“
Yo, Kim! Check out those flying pigs in graph 3!
The rest of the national landscape outside the Logic Free Zone of Washington is all downhill from K Street.

The selfie generation is too distracted checking in on Facebook, posting pictures of their food on Instagram, doing a dance routine on Tik Tok or counting their likes on Twitter to realize how badly they’ve been screwed over by those pulling the strings of this society. The propaganda and psychology of fear utilized by the powerful interests have reached a level that would make Edward Bernays burst with pride, as manipulating the masses to believe falsehoods is a key requirement in implementing their Great Reset agenda.
Of course, our dying culture has also been turbocharged by the climate cult attempting to destroy our fossil-fueled economic system by purposely sabotaging our energy and food systems as the driving force for their Great Reset. JQ
Say it ain’t so! And while you’re at it, what is Plan B? If “taxing your way to prosperity” is a non-starter (and it is), how will the mountain of insurmountable problems caused by Government be resolved by the same bunch of liars, grifters, megalomaniacs, and reprobates in Government who created them?
The termites of Freedom at all levels of government have been munching on your natural rights, the Rule of Law, common sense, and morality since George Washington took a knee. Take a closer look at the Real Abe Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson (no relation), Roosevelt, Johnson, ad nauseam. It’s not complicated. Government is the immoral coupling of Power and Force, the natural enemies of Freedom and Liberty. Ultimately, Government destroys both and civilizations with it.
The Selfie Generation – what former colleague Rush Limbaugh referred to as Low Information Voters – fails to grasp resolving something as long coming as the Fourth Turning is more complicated than posting memes and mouthing clichés: “Defund IRS”! “Repeal the 16th Amendment!”, “Impeach Merrick Garland!”, “Arrest HRC!” “Down With Yoga Pants!” C’mon’ man! It ain’t that easy. Who is going to make the arrests? Defund? Repeal? Impeach? Does anyone truly believe Republicans are going to rent, beg, borrow, steal or buy the guts, brains and spine to do even one of those? Remember the last time Republicans controlled Congress and occupied the White House? Remember how quickly they repealed Obamacare, the Great Big Promise they campaigned on? Me either. Without citing all their other astounding failures, what basis for confidence can one possess that the GOP, the Stupid Party of the Limp Noodle that will always Pass Up An Opportunity To Pass Up An Opportunity will right the wrongs of the Biden administration and his gang of precessors?
I’m a fighter. I can’t understand people who aren’t. I don’t get people who don’t really care about anything except nothing important. It makes life exceptionally difficult and lonely unless I’m willing to drone out and care also about nothing really important and typically that’s most people these days.
“They stand for nothing, fight for nothing, know nothing and think they do so much simply because they work a 9-5 so they can participate in a system that’s enslaving them… And they don’t care about that either.” – Kelly Ann Sonnier
Are you like Kelly Ann? Or the people she’s writing about, infected by the long-running plague of Contagious Apathy and Aggressive Ignorance? If so, “…may your chains rest lightly” (Sam Adams)
Otherwise, you would do well to heed the advice of Jim Quinn:
Choosing your allies and forming local communities of like-minded people with the skills to survive and thrive in the world created after the coming conflict is resolved, is all you can do at this point. Preparation may not be enough, but not preparing guarantees a bad outcome for you and your family. Whatever you do, put absolutely no faith in any government solution to our predicament. They are the enemy and you can’t vote your way out of this.
