The election took the wind outta my sails.
Up until the results were compiled, I still had hope that my fears were just that...
Unnecessary worrying on my part.
But it is now obvious to anyone watching that the country truly has been "fundamentally transformed"...
There is a very large contingent of our brethren who think "sticking it to the man" is exactly what is needed to level the playing field and make our country a better place, conveniently ignoring the BILLIONS of dollars this administration has funneled to "the man"...
Failed and failing business like Solyndra and General Motors.
We're in huge trouble.
It takes time to blog.
It also takes a little thought to do it and not make a fool of myself.
The time, inclination, and inspiration all have to meet at the same place for it to happen.
On the other hand, you can throw a quick comment or rant up on your Facebook page in seconds.
If you decide it was the wrong thing to do, you can delete the comment in an instant.
Two or three people who stop by here and comment are also FB friends. They also seem to have blogging doldrums, for whatever reason. I haven't discussed the phenomenon with them...
It'll be interesting to see if they agree or disagree with my thoughts.
No one seems to care.
Our country's finances are a mess.
The rule of law and our Constitution no longer matter.
The Senate is supposed to pass an annual budget and hasn't done it since Bozo took office.
We're supplying weapons to our enemies, local, and far away.
The whole world seems to be going berzerko.
But no one cares.
We're in "Don't let a good crisis go to waste" mode. We certainly don't want to let a crisis get by without doing SOMETHING to make us feel good...
Decisions made while we're in a highly emotional state are always the best, well-thought out decisions aren't they?
And we've certainly had more than our fair share of emotional, chaotic crises lately.
But I've been shouting from the rooftops at Facebook, trying to get someone into a discussion that would convince me I'm way out in left field, thinking as I do.
And no one, (except many that also comment here and are an echo chamber) will respond.
No one cares.
One of my last FB comments followed the old "All that is necessary for evil to succeed..." quote.
Few responded. NO ONE argued the point.
It's my impression that LOTS of folks feel they are helpless to make changes in the chaos happening around them, even though many don't like what they see.
So they do nothing.
And EVIL will succeed.
So start getting ready for it.
And for FB "friends" that keep bugging me...
I have NO INTEREST in playing "Bubble Safari", "Mafia Wars", "Farmville", or "Zynga Bingo".
I'm now spending more time trying to come up with worthwhile blogs.
