It is said that a wise traveler in a foreign land avoids politicians and social unrest.  I once was born to this land, a native sprout of its soil, but it is no longer my home.  I must remember its fate is no longer in my hands.  Yet I weep for its withered blooms of promise yet standing in the arid fields of liberty.
“Can humankind rule itself?” the authors once questioned. 
“Apparently not” the faded blossoms replied.  The people demand a King, and a King they shall receive.

    I’d love to avoid politicians and social unrest right about now.. but that’s getting harder and harder to do.

      It is a bit like avoiding chicken plop in the chicken coop … easier said than done …

        Plop everywhere you look lately.
        Yes.

      I don’t think I’ll be grabbing my Garand or SKS and trotting off to battle anymore. But I’ll defend my porch ….

    A few weeks ago, I sat at a table with several men (and women). They were all talking about how they would shoot every last one of these communist traitors in our country. Lots of big talk, but I wonder what it will actually take for the talkers to get out there and fight? I think, until it comes to their own front door, not one of them will do a thing. Most of us are trying to live our lives and go to work and take care of our families, but who knows when the time will come when the “comfort” we all live in will be gone and the only thing left to do is fight till the death. (I will hide under my bed LOLOLOL 🤣😂🙄😮)

      🙂 I often smile at such talk. There was a time when I indulged in careless bravado too. Then I was tested. I hope to be brave when such time comes …

        I think it will be up to the younger generation to decide what kind of country they want to live in. I don’t think a lot of them appreciate the freedom (what is left of it) they were born into. Not many realize that freedom comes at a cost. If the country falls, those born later will never know what freedom was. I think that is part of the reason the traitors want to erase history… 😦
