Through all the years writing in my spare time, the one thing that always kept me going is that there are so many great titles out there just waiting to be used. So I’ll try to make this one worth it. And pardon my French when I error on the side of simplicity.
The Fourth of July is coming again and poses the same quandary to me as last year. That is having barbecues and celebrating it with pomp and circumstance, the way we could not really do last year, is great for everyone to do. We all do it our own way.
What bugs me most is how some people can celebrate Independence Day of the greatest country on earth and the very next day be back tearing apart the foundations that made it all possible. Do those two things go together? They don’t seem to.
Another thing gnawing at my intestines at the moment is Biden scheming a 6 trillion dollar budget. It’s a killer in ways only economists can articulate but it is a disaster. Except Democrats frame it, as they do all their huge spending, as a plan to save the country. Well, save it from what? How can both be so? If you do something that will destroy the country, how can you claim to be saving it? But it is that way with all their plans.
Really, their ideas are consistent at least but consistently wrong. Their instincts are always bad. Some people can make rotten out of something good. That appears to be what they are doing to this country. I hope I am not oversimplifying that.
Taking advantage of crises is what they always say, then no wonder they have to create a crisis first. Look at the border. It is hard to celebrate the Fourth of July with the border wide open. No one seems to care in the White House. Oh, the left would find some way to make even the open border sound like a good or positive thing. They would defy the idea of independence insinuating the independence of people coming here. Isn’t that what they always do, redefine the problem? Or they claim it is not really a problem. How about creating another to keep that one company?
But we have heard it all before. The border is only a crisis to us because it is no problem to them. They want it this way. They want it to get so rotten and overrun we are forced into doing anything to stop it. So they could claim amnesty for millions of illegals. So they could expand the country’s welfare and safety net to the breaking point in order to accomplish their objectives. Take it to the limit used to be a good Eagles song but has become the mantra of the Left. This is radicalism’s dirty little secret that is not too secret anymore. Cloward-Piven Strategy strikes again. How many times can you employ that strategy?
Back before the election and soon after I was hearing self-avowed socialists on the air telling comrade Democrats that deficits don’t matter. They said the new doctrine is deficits don’t matter and they should not hear any complaints about deficits or the debt.
You know what that gets. They want and need to spend with no worry or threat of consequences. Now’s the time, deficits don’t matter. How do you compute that? It only works if you can put the country into such a chaotic state no one can think of deficits.
It is radicalism pure and simple. How can you claim to be saving the country by destroying it? That would seem a tough sell anywhere.
Biden went overseas under the rubric that they were selling democracy. How so? Should you have to sell it? It turns out what they are selling at home is not republican democracy but a socialism mobocracy. So why would they go overseas to sell something they are fleeing from at home? Make any sense? Again, this is radicalism.
We are in a dangerous point I never thought I would see. It is crazy If you have to sell something here at home. Well, we now have to sell people in this country on America. When we have to do that we might be losing. I never thought we would actually have to convince a big chunk of the country on American freedom.
I always thought it was something we could agree on and did, even through the political battles. When it came down to it, we could all agree on the idea of America. Now that idea is in danger, being replaced by ideas foreign to what the founders envisioned. They warned us against those. They warned about mobocracy, too. But here we are drawing short straws for freedom and the chances are not looking real great at the moment.
So the Left will celebrate a holiday that, promptly after, they will defy by working to destroy the country. Independence from what? We cherish our independence though it is being discarded.
Back to the point, why should we have to sell anyone on the ideas of America? Can’t we all at least still agree on that? Apparently not. They want us to subsidize our demise.
