It’s a powerful emotion that can allow a person to recall a
single instant in time . . . It can turn them into a quivering mass of flesh .
. . It can make them cower . . . It can “change their mind” . . . it can
destroy a person. We all have such
moments in our past. A few of mine would

These are just a few of my moments – we all have them. A few still make me cringe as a small part of
my memory curls up into a little ball.
The raw power of fear . . .
We have been undergoing a long-term experiment on the part
of our government and most around the world about just how long fear can
control a population. We’ve gone from
“Two weeks to stop the spread!” to two years . . . and no end in sight. Rahm Emanual – Obama’s Chief of Staff –
coined a fitting phrase to our current situation . . . “You never want a
serious crisis to go to waste.” So, what
has this crisis wrought through the actions of our government? Here’s a few of things.

Viable medical mitigation is replaced by a single, solitary phrase . . .
“Get the shot!”
some countries – Australia comes to mind – a true, fascist system of governance has emerged based solely around trying to “manage” covid that goes so far as to authorize police to shoot their citizens with rubber bullets should they be
found outside their homes and mask-less.
What began as a “fear the virus” approach to controlling
the populace has evolved into a “fear your government” movement. If you disobey your government will take away
your job, confine you to your home and condemn you to a life of poverty. As Joe
said . . . “We’ve been patient, now get the shot!” The “fear” that we responded to initially has
been successfully transferred to our government bodies. And sadly, our society has been going along
with this “we are the mighty and powerful OZ” routine of folks like Biden, DeBlasio,
Cuomo, Witmer, Newsome, Inslee, Murphy, Pritzker . . . to name just a few, for
nearly two years. These folks now decide
if you work, when you work, where you work, where you eat . . . by simple fiat.
Large gatherings are carefully monitored as well and
“winners” and “losers” are chosen. In
the leadup to the 2020 elections cities burned – Chicago, New York, Portland,
Seattle, Atlanta and more. Billions in
damage. We were told . . . “tut tut,
it’s understandable with all the racism”.
Millions in damages to DC were simply justified as being
“understandable” and were written off – no arrests. Then, “magically”, with Trump’s declared loss
. . . all the concerns went away and the majority of the “troubles” simply
disappeared. Until the infamous January 6th “insurrection”. You know the one, where those evil Trump
supporters stormed the capital – through barricades removed by the capital
police, through the doors opened by the capital police and through windows
broken by government operatives. Amazingly,
except for these few broken windows, no damage was done to the capital . . .
none, zero, zip . . . yet this has been declared an event greater than 9/11. Only a
single life was lost – an unarmed veteran was murdered by a Capital
Policeman. And yet, the administration
has used this event mercilessly to show that if you stand against them, the
FBI, the DOJ and every other governmental agency will hunt you, jail you and
forget about you. Have any come to
trial? No. Have any trial dates been set? NO. Have they been beaten and abused in prison?
Yes. Just one more lesson of this whole
saga . . . OBEY!!!
So, what does this all mean to us as a nation? Nothing good.
It means those in power have little to no respect for you. It means that the words you say, the
positions you take, the policies you expect, the Constitution you revere mean
nothing to them. You might gain some
traction if you go “all in” with the new regime but only so long as you are
“all in”, so long as you are in agreement with their path, so long as you are
obedient – otherwise you are just one of the unwashed.
It means that this administration and its minions across
the country simply DO NOT FEAR YOU!
Period. You are chaff in the
wind, a speck of dust to be brushed aside.
All that stuff about a Representative Government guided by the
Constitution is a thing of the past. Our
future lies with the rule of an all-knowing and all-powerful central
government. Our future lies in Marxism.
This path, this direction, this fondness for ultimate and
complete power must end! They must be
taught to fear you. They must be
reminded that THEY are in service to YOU, and not the other way around. They must be confronted, resisted, challenged,
questioned and removed and replaced. As the phrase goes – “We can do this the easy
way . . . or the hard way!”
I’m hoping for the best.
