Tearing Down To Build Back

    Being a Christian man, there is a lot of merit to the concept of God speaking to a a person's heart that has torn themselves down in life. I have witnessed exactly this scenario play out several times myself.

    Here I am at a time in my life where it feels as though everything I have spent a lifetime working towards is being torn down just as I am putting the pieces together for my retirement in a few years. And thing is, I am feeling pretty pissed off about it. I played by the rules. I paid my taxes. I have helped people that were down and out. I did everything the right way and here I am watching as my foundation slowly erodes out from under my feet and there's not a damned thing I can do about it. Sadly, I am too old and tired to start over.

    I considered putting this in the political section but the basis of this is biblical teaching so I thought perhaps it is more fitting in the Religion section.... Could it be that all of this chaos is the progressive liberal agenda? Could it be that all these shortages, rampant inflation, economic uncertainty all part of a larger plan to tear everything this nation has been about for 245 years so they can build it back the way they want it?

    Unfortunately you are not alone. If one wants to explain this from political objectives, yes, they want to divide, marginalize, and then reshape this nation because they believe it is flawed from its founding. Now, from a religious perspective, I’ll ask this question: Is this just a wake up call to return to core values?

    That's what I see too. The goal is to fundamentally change everything in their own view (where they are the autocrats and all dissent is eliminated).
    And I do think this is a wake up call; the question is, will enough people leave their slumber?

    BS...they don't believe that! That's just a talking point to give them a sense of "moral authority"...judging history through a 21st century lens...or saying the Earth will end in 12 years unless we fund their ridiculous spending (bribery) plans. What reasonable (not bribed) person is buying into any of this Crappola?

    The Democrat party has turned into a drug pusher and the drug they're pushing is Communism. The first taste is always "free".

    These are the same individuals that don’t believe in God yet they worship at the alters of Marx, Stalin, Che, Mao, Lennin.... shall I continue? They damn sure believe the ends justify the means.

    I get how it could seem that way, but it's really happening all over the world. Everyone is reeling from covid still as we all try to recover and I don't think there's really anything that can be done about it by one president.

    To be fair, I'm sure that if the Republicans were in power, many liberals would question if they were deliberately derailing things as well.

    I just think unfortunately it's something we have to weather out.

    Unfortunately, you are right, but I think you’re going a little easy on liberals. It certainly didn’t have to be this way.

    As POTUS Trump so apply pointed out, “ We cannot let the cure be worse than the illness itself”. To that, liberals haughtily sneered and insisted on closure of as many businesses as possible, despite many businesses being well-prepared to continue through the crisis, complying with recommended protective protocols. Had Businesses been allowed to persist through this crisis with safeguards, our economy would not be nearly as stifled as it presently is.

    When this dragging of the feet and stoppage of commerce by liberals is discussed in retrospect, they like to change the subject and point to Trump as being responsible for all of the American deaths due to COVID, ignoring the fact that many, if not most of those lives would have been taken by COVID no matter who was in the White House.

    Further worsening the situation was the scab-picking that liberals did in denying Trump even an iota of credit for accelerating vaccine development.

    It’s no wonder that a conservative knee jerk reaction to liberal machinations unnecessarily exacerbated the death toll, but try to get liberals to own up to the fact that their divisive manner of doing business is actually partly responsible for the end result, and it’ll never happen.

    Has anyone noticed there has been little coverage of the border crisis lately? How can we have a secure country without secure borders?

    It’s pretty hard to convincingly cover the news when access is substantially blocked by the government. Trump was far from my choice, but I find it interesting that such barriers were not erected when he was in office.

    So, who are the fascists, really?

    Said differently, the fascists are not
    who the media says they are . . .
