25 ¶And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
We have arrived, I think. Of course we probably arrived some time ago but I didn’t want to believe it. I wanted life to go on as it had. I wanted my children and grandchildren to able to live and love and grow and achieve as I did before them. This I’m afraid is not to be. Americans assured that when they allowed the destroyer access to their country. They allowed it when they forsook the God that was present at the birth of the nation to be ejected from schools and public buildings. They allowed it when they made heroes out of bandits and criminals. They allowed it when they cast morality into the gutter and threw common sense in afterward.
Now we know that the current administration not only knew but covered up what they knew. They left 4 Americans to die. They refused to access the many assets that were available to them. They stood by while our embassy was attacked, it’s people murdered and did nothing. And then they lied. So the question arises, what else have they lied about?
In other times, in other administrations, in other situations the president would have been impeached over the mess that is Benghazi. The vice president would have been forced to resign and people would have gone to jail. This will probably not happen, unless we want a race war because like it or not this is now all about race. The paradigm has shifted and this is what we have to live with in the future. It is the only thing that has kept this president in office so far. One can’t disagree with him, that’s racist. One can’t point out obvious problems with his agenda, that’s racist. One can’t suggest that he’s incompetent, inept and dangerous……..you guessed it, racist. One can’t point out the our large cities with minority mayors are verging on bankruptcy, that is also racist. One can’t make any improvements because one can’t talk about the real issues and real problems because …..yeah you know.
How is it that barely 12 % of the US population demands half the jobs, 80% of the resources and sucks up 90% of people’s time and energy. There are special school programs, set asides, lobbyists, government subsidies for schools, for homes, for businesses. There were roughly 4 times the white workers in government jobs in 2008 than black workers but they are only 12 % of the population, so they are over represented in the public sector by at least 7 times. We don’t even want to go into a discussion of the mess affirmative action has made out of education but here’s some facts from ACT to consider. In Michigan they gathered data to show college readiness by race, 64% of white students, 38% of Hispanic students, 71 % of Asian students as opposed to 25% of Black students are considered ready for college in english, the rest of the numbers for Algebra, Biology and Social studies tells a similar story, sadly. Not only are black students not ready for college they are being admitted to college over those who are obviously more competent . So instead of business leaders, finance professionals, professors and others that should have been turned out of our higher education entities we have people who were only admitted due to their skin tone.
Lest the racist moniker come out now, be well aware that I believe that the person with the best score, the most experience, the better resume get’s the job, the spot in college or the trophy on Dancing with the Stars. Skin color, ethnicity, political leanings or lifestyle choices shouldn’t be considered. Apparently that is not the case anymore.
It is because of this disconnect, I believe, incompetents have taken over the government. They are making decisions that will eventually, if not stopped, lead disaster. As we’ve seen in Benghazi, the military will do whatever it is that their superiors tell them to do. Military folks have already had basic human rights removed from them, they can’t share their religion, they will now have their work areas scrutinized for “offensive to women” stuff? Really? We have no other more important things to worry about. No, we’re playing societal roulette with people who use guns. I would have in the past said that the American soldier would never fire on his fellow citizens, I don’t believe that anymore. They will shoot whomever the government chooses as a foe. I should have realized that after Waco but I didn’t or maybe I couldn’t. I do now.
So yes, I distrust the government, I distrust the administration, I distrust the military and I distrust the police. The president and the organization that the pilot of the Benghazi drone “can’t mention” don’t have to tap my phone or hack my computer. I believe there is a tyrannical regime in power in the United States today. I believe they seek to take away the rights guaranteed to me by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. No matter how much Shelia Jackson Lee tries to rewrite either document, I have already read both and have committed to memory those rights. So now there is only one group I trust and that’s my family. And yes we all need more bullets, more guns, torches and pitchforks, we need to be prepared and ever watchful and we need to remember who it is we’re dealing with.
18 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must watch and pray always lest ye enter into temptation; for Satan desireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat. 3 Nephi 18:18
I know that this verse is true. I have seen it often enough in the last 10 years. This is where we are folks. We’ve been warned. We now get to reap the whirlwind.
