1,000 words, life during the sickness, 6th entry

I have a feeling that people will be unprepared for what is coming, in the way that they have been unprepared for the sickness, as well as what has happened in post-election . . . I’m truly stumped. More surprises in the coming years? Of course. There is no word for levels of deceit and fraud. We know Texas followed by the support of 17 other states, more than one-third of the nation, filed a lawsuit to simply say that if Texas and other states played by election rules, what happened in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and the other swing states where lawsuits have been filed challenging the somewhat mysterious outcomes? The Supreme Court decided against hearing the brief filed by Texas with zero to little explanation. I could find nothing on the SCOTUS website. Not even a media release.

Strange. Not in the sense that I want any one side to prevail over the other until we get a final answer on if this was a fair elections. Though I believe any American wants that, but for the sake of fairness, I’ll accept the result. Come what may, but I’ll tell you now, I’m refusing the vaccine even if it means breaking the law. Fraud, in any size, is a valid concern. In fact, I’m pretty sure the discussion for fraud in our elections has a substantial basis, or could millions of people be wrong? That is, if taken into account, several million smart people who know the U.S. Constitution and the law well enough to write and file briefs which contain coherent and justifiable valid questions. I’ll be humble enough to say that if I am wrong, call me out on it. I’d love to hear from you.

What I’m driving at here is not prompted by sour grapes. In fact, in 2016, I was a firmly entrenched Democrat, and thought I would be a life-long Democrat, not realizing there were some things not fully divulged by the accounts and certain members of our infallible national media on the party itself and certain individuals who took up places in the upper echelons of the party, let alone our government. Case in point, certain foundations tied to child trafficking? Another, UFOs or aerial phenomena studied in places like Area 51, at underground bases, etc., which have used taxpayer money and haven’t had to account fully for their activity, not to mention the trillions that have gone missing, and evidence that might have been found in the 9-11 puff of smoke. No disrespect to the thousands who were murdered at the World Trade Center, collateral damage in someone(s) aim to spark foreign wars, direct chaos, and keep the American public guessing in the form of WTF on social media, all of which I have largely tuned out, because it too, my friends, is keeping people on a hamster wheel of division and hatred. And what the world needs now, is love, sweet love. Tell me I’m wrong.

Sadly, there are a whole range of ways that we are not told about the truth in ways that would matter, and perhaps change the way we do business with the rest of the world, not withstanding, American citizens, a lot of whom live paycheck to paycheck. With the so-called sickness spreading in cases, not in huge amounts of death statistically, keeping large swaths of the world population masked and in “lockdown” for no good reason (this is rightly called fascism), I’m not sure, if even our local rag the Scottsbluff Star-Herald or KNEB TV/radio cares to report on how a lot of our local people are getting along, or not getting along, like how many people show up to the food pantries. It might surprise you who shows up there. There is suffering, but how much? Many of our folks were at the poverty level. I’m wondering where they are now?

Speaking of going hungry. So enters the expression “food shortages” into our daily vernacular or in more euphemistic terms, “food insecurity.” Beef prices have nearly quadrupled. Check out information from the World Economic Forum and a dude named Schwab (sp). How long before grocery shelves go fully empty? I know one thing is for sure, ammunition is in short supply. I see it every time I visit Murdoch’s or for that matter Dunham’s and yes, even Wal-Mart, where I got away with not wearing a mask at purchase time, and no gestapo armed guard knocked me to the ground to escort me away in handcuffs. Does anyone have a clear answer on why we’re talking about food shortage now? I’ll take the wild guess and say that a certain segment believe worse will come to worse. For those left wondering about what to believe if the news isn’t delivered by CNN or the New York Times.

I worked in the news business, and will tell you, repeatedly, that the news, whatever information comes prepackaged, such as with the AP or other national rag story budgets, already has been decided. It is effectively a state-run media. As a news editor in the business, rarely did I ever see other points of view. Then, having visited many other countries in the past three and half decades, I realized that people there developed opinions about us, none too flattering I might add. Let’s just say, calling us the “ugly American” wasn’t far from the truth, at least from my own personal experiences. The point is, without getting too deep into the subject, these people who we referred to as foreigners carried deep-seated bias. Let’s ask ourselves why? I dare you. Americans closed their eyes to self realization.

Later, well after what I thought was the end of my journalism career, I sought a graduate degree in Education. Part of Teacher Education was to learn about and appreciate the differences in people in a class about multiculturalism. Notice a root in the word: CULT. Suffice to say, you don’t know what you don’t know. And, if you don’t know about a certain topic, why would you or anyone else care? Do you get my point? There will be ignorance because of the breakage of wills, and your desire to learn, wanes. In retrospect, looking at how we are educated, unless you were taking responsibility for this institution’s shortcomings, you were graduating with scant ability to read and write, much less think.

How do I know? I’ll give you a brief sampling of the seniors I taught as an English Teacher in literature and composition classes. Out of 160 students, more or less, given the time of year, by the end of the year, I gave eight students an A or A-plus. On the other end of the spectrum, double the amount of failures. This watered down education barely gives them a fighting chance. It more or less tells them they have little choice for what to do in life, how to support themselves, and more intrinsically, how to pursue happiness or having an idea on what that even means. Most of them viewed reading and writing as useless life skills. Imagine what they thought of calculus.

Given the amount of domestic violence and abuse, incest, rape, substance abuse, predominantly alcoholism, and being exposed to a society which largely condoned premature sex, in other words, teen sex, regarding making good choices, is left largely in tatters. These people then become a liability to our society and nation. At one point in my own life, I was called broken because I became a recovering alcoholic. I stopped wrecking my life with poison in January 2012. No wonder some of the elites, the cabal or deep state by name is perfectly OK with culling the herd, and doing whatever they like with commoners. They refer to it as eugenics and view it as part of the master plan for the “new world order,” and why some people are dumb enough to listen to Bill Gates as a medical expert. The only sway he has is money, unless people choose not to participate in such a diabolical plan. If we do nothing, or like Ghandi or MLK, we can take up a passive refusal to accept certain new rules, I believe this will speak volumes by bringing notice to such wrongs.

Americans, as long as they support the status quo, supporting the people in charge, and not upsetting the apple cart, will coast through life, giving up a large part of their income, to who? And for what? And that’s only part of it.

If we truly think that our current government is for the people, think again.

I'm a writer, and have been for most of my adult life. Without making this sound like a resume, I wrote creatively in college, dabbling in poetry, short stories and play writing. Later, I became a journalist, public affairs specialist, copy editor and eventually a guy who ran his own newspaper. Now, I'm back to letting my imagination run wild in some new creations including a science-fiction novel. Somehow, I also managed to teach English to high school kids, and roam the battlefields of Afghanistan as a field historian. Field historian may be a misnomer considering all I did was write abstracts summarizing military unit profiles and missions that included hundreds of interviews of troops and contractors in combat. I grew up in a small town called Gering, Nebraska, before escaping to Pomona, California, where I spent my last two years of high school, graduating from Ganesha High School in 1983. I have a Bachelors in English from the University of La Verne (1987), and a Masters in Education from UNLV (2007). In between, I worked for government - the Army and TSA. I served tours in Panama, D.C., and Tokyo, all thanks to a teacher who encouraged me to see the world before I settled down. As hobbies, I run, hike and bicycle long distances. I have also been known to surf and ski. I now live in my hometown after moving back in June 2015. I get to see family on a regular basis, breath fresh air, and not have to ride the D.C. metro or get stuck in traffic. In fact, I ride my bicycle whenever I can. I'm happily married to my wife Lisa, and we watch over a pack of fur babies, our dog Charley, and three cats Spike, Bootsy, and Franky (his shelter name). If you should ever visit me in west Nebraska, be prepared to feast your eyes on paradise.
