BACKING INTO THE FUTURE
WHILE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PAST

I thought that I would just continue my rant from the previous posting, seeing that I posted that one just a few minutes ago and I am still in that mood. It's the frame of mind where I look back on my previous accomplishments, which are few and wonder if I have any more in store (possibly, but not probably). Yesterday, I was looking forward to the past, with all of its ups and downs (mostly downs, or downers), so now, I thought I would talk about the other part of that equation, i.e. "backing into the future."

No, I am not mixing metaphors. I am simply stating what is for me a true observation. I long to return to the happiest of days in the past, because I truly don't see how there will be any happy days in the future.

Take, for instance, today's political climate. The far-Left have brought us to the place where we don't even recognize our country. It is not the USA of 2008 and certainly not the USA of Ronald Reagan. The Left (not to be confused with Liberals) has radical transformed this country and is busy trying to finish Barack Obama's plan to turn this country into Venezuela.

Since the inauguration of Joe Biden, we have moved from being energy independent to dependent upon OPEC for our oil supply; we have gone from 1.1% inflation to 7.6% (but the mechanism to measure inflation has changed to keep energy prices and certain foods out of the equation to where they are saying the inflation rate is really on 3.6% and is starting to flat line. We have gone from LGBT to 2SLGBTQQIPAA+ (2-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersexual, Pansexual, Asexual, Androgyny and whatever else can be made of or believed to be non Cis-gendered (hence the +).

We have marriages not just between Adam and Eve, but Adam and Steve, or Eve and Genevieve.

We have gone to weaponizing the federal bureaucracy to surveiling and muzzling parents who want school choice and not forced indoctrination with Critical Race Theory and human sexuality.

We have seen our deficit climb by 40% and hear the Socialist Democrats talk about giving amnesty and free-health care, food, housing, education and other benefits to illegal immigrants all the while forgetting about Americans in captivity in a hostile country and homeless veterans who sleep under bridges.

We have seen police forces being defunded or all but eliminated while crime statistic are going up by more than 300%.

We are watching the President ordering businesses to fire those who refuse to be vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus, all the while wanting to increase the welfare rolls for those who do not want to work, but not allowing for either unemployment benefits or any other social safety net program for the unvaccinated who get terminated.

We are seeing that more and more the government is prohibiting travel via air, rail and busses for the unvaccinated. Will there be checkpoints at each entrance into states next?

Small businesses failed last year to the tune of 3 out of every 7 and 2 of the remaining 4 are barely up and running or existing.

Corporate America is forcing employees to undergo more than sensitivity training. They are undergoing Critical Race Theory training which allows for people of color to be exempt from sensitivity issues. Meaning, they can practice reverse racism and there will be no repercussions.

Then, there is the border, or lack thereof. It is estimated that there will have been 1.3 million crossings from Mexico by the end of the year with no end in sight. And this administration is touting amnesty for all who cross and a quick path to citizenship with the right to vote and instructions on how to pull the lever or check mark he candidates with the "D" following their names and being taught that those are the ones who will keep those freebies coming.

Riots, lootings, maiming, killings, burning buildings. Molotov cocktails and overturned cars along with the hurling of bricks and bottles at police is going unpunished all the while the radical left in Congress is searching out every person who held up a Trump sign or wore a Make America Great Again Hat in Washington on January 6, with a view of prosecuting them and punishing them beyond the full letter of the law.

I don't recognize my country!

Why do I say I am backing into the future? Because I don't want to see it coming. I already know how it is going to end. And I already know that it will end.

I have read the recent polls and some of the polling the radical Democrats have put out in the field and it truly doesn't look good for them. The way I see it, they have fifteen more months to finish this country off. They will try over and over and over again. If they fail in one area, they have another plan already in the hopper. They want to run the deficit up so high that we will never be able to pay it off and therefore become a serf or vassal of the Chinese Communist Party. They won't us totally dependent on other countries so as to bring us down to third world country status. They reason, if we all had the same footing we would have equity. But it will be equity in suffering, equity in nothingness. When talking about everyone and everything will be equal it will be that we will all be equally poor. This is the real outcome of pure Communism. And the Left sees no problem with that! Or are they totally and completely stupid? I don't think so.

What is going on today has been carefully planned and orchestrated. If, in some miracle, the Democrats don't succeed in their plans to turn the US into that third world country, and the Republicans do take both the House and Senate in November of 2022, it will merely stop the hemorrhaging until the Left takes control of Congress and the White House together again. You see, the Republicans are good at puffing out their chests when they are not the party in power. They push bills they know conservatives favor, knowing they will be shot down by the Democrats, then, like in 2015, when they take control of both Houses of Congress with a Democrat president still in the White House, they will get those bills passed over and over and over again only to be sent to the White House each time for a certain veto. Then, in a second miracle a Republican gets elected to the White House with total control of both Houses being in their hands as well, they just can't get the votes necessary to pass those same bills to send to the White House for a certain signature, they let their victories go to hell in a hand basket and nothing gets done.

The Republicans are merely the party of putting on the brakes. That means all they will do is stop the Progressive destruction but they don't do anything to reverse the damage. Like Obamacare. In 2015 and 2016, the GOP controlled Congress voted twenty-three times to overturn it and sent it to the Obama for his signature. Nope! Nada! No way he was going to sign away his signature law. Enter Donald Trump in January of 2017. For two years he repeatedly asked, no really, begged, the GOP controlled Congress to send him the Obamacare Repeal bill. And repeatedly there were just enough Republicans who previously voted in favor of it to now vote against it.

You see, the GOP isn't serious. They merely put the brakes on if for other reason that to give us pause to take a breath, before the Democrats come back in a vengeance. What they have done in the last nine months has been a break-neck speed and for no other purpose than to finish Obama's transforming of America to a third world country.

Yeah, I want to back into that one. I don't want to see it being finished off. I keep up with all the news as to how the Communist Democrats are making their daily maneuvers in the world of chaos and destruction. I see all the evil they avail themselves of and wonder if there could be anything they have forgotten to use in their arsenal. My keeping up with the "Real News" is one way of saying that I want to see it coming. It's kind of like when someone holds a gun to your head and asks you if you want it in the front or behind - certain his shot will be - I say I want to see it coming. I want him to see my eyes as I peer into his one last time with the hope that he will remember the eyes and face and that they will haunt him somehow. Not true with the government, and certainly not true with the evil that controls it. They don't see anything when they pull the trigger, they have no conscious. They are truly possessed of the Devil, which is spelled D + EVIL.

So, I guess it would be a waste of the moment to face my opponent with the gun. Our Communist government has no conscious, no sense of the value of mankind, no sense of shame. I'll take it from behind. Maybe the last thing I do is fart in his face as if to give him the middle finger. Thanks Democrats for ruining our country and thank you too Republicans, for enabling their contemptible behavior. I trust our politicians like I trust thief with my money or a rabid dog to be friendly.

So, here I sit in my home office, with Reggie asleep by my side, ignorant of the eminent demise of our nation, but happy to be near me. I am happy to be near him as well. In fact, he has become one of only a couple of things in my life that gives it any meaning. That is so sad to say and as a person who has many graduate hours in psychology and counseling I would think was a suicidal feeling. I assure you it is not, for if I kill myself,  my backing into the future ends and I have nothing but a void to look forward to.

As for my future, these three things I know and you can surmise from this and the last blog: 1) I am forever restricted/expelled from the world of radio and broadcasting as a whole; 2) I am forever restricted to the small church and should I leave the church I am pastoring I may very well be out of the ministry forever (too old now); and 3) I, like millions of Americans too, may very well end up without a house, property, friends, money, food and freedom to do anything about it - Thanks to Democrats, empowered by the elite Left. The question is, can I at least have what I got for a little while longer?

Now, do you, my dear reader, understand why I want to go back to the past? Even the many downers I experienced if preferable to the big downer that awaits us all if the Left wins. They don't plan to lose, that is for sure. I want to go back! I was listening to this somewhat familiar rock tune the other night and it made me think of how true my plight really is:

I was listening to the radio
I heard a song reminded me of long ago
Back then I thought that things were never gonna change
It used to be that I never had to feel the pain
I know that things will never be the same now

I wanna go back
And do it all over again
But I can't go back I know
I wanna go back
Cause I'm feeling so much older
But I can't go back I know

Funny, how a song makes meaning of a person's situation like this one does. Written by three members of the band Billy Satellite, it was made popular by as a cover song from Eddie Money. The reason this has meaning for me is that I always and forever will hear a song or classical piece of music (either over the radio or via Spotify or some other music app) and my mind goes back. It goes back to the past where I feel safe and secure. Why? Because I know how the story goes. I've been there, done that, and am comfortable just knowing.

Blog for October 5 Blog for October 7

Blogging

Blogs are about the blogger. It's as if he or she merely toots their own horns about the things they do, say and love.

My life is boring. I read, I watch Glenn Beck and Mark Levin. I listen to Andrew Wilkow. I engage in some conversation with those who are willing to listen (they being masochistic and enjoy killing themselves with my banter).

I plan on just laying out the things that bother me and the things I love. Nothing in-between. I hope you find whatever I put here amusing.
