The Day After

Is "it" over yet?

Doubtful. In fact, I predict "it" isn't going to be over for a very long time. *sigh*

What is "it" you ask? Well, apart from the fact that I, too, have been asking that same question for the past 9 years, more specifically, I'm referring to the despicable display of arrogant, contrived, controlled fakery that was wrought upon us yesterday, whether via the newspaper you picked up proclaiming a new day had dawned, airwaves full of hysterical talk show hosts or cables arriving at destination desktop, your living room, local bar, high school or convenience shop - all bearing the One Message...We got us some hope 'n change, folks, and don't you fuggeddaboudit! Not for one hour, one minute or one nanosecond! The Messiah has come to town and the "it" is the phenomorama that delivered "it" here. And no, today's not the day I'm going to ask "why." (Again)

I've only got a coupla things on my mind today - kinda hard to think when you're mind's trying to forge a path between mourning and rage. Nevertheless, they're important to me and if not to you, well, then you know what to do - the door's in the upper right corner.

First, a bit of news - well, maybe not technically since it occurred this past Sunday - let's call it this then - a newsworthy item. Ready? Remember Madame Impeachment's Off the Table Pelosi Speaker of the House Jesters' stance on bringing the last (as of yesterday's high noon horror show) criminal cabal to justice? Oh no, no, NO! There will be no impeachment HERE, John Conyers and sit the hell DOWN, Dennis, lest I clobber you with my 50 pound pearls - there will be NO accountability here! That one? Wellllll, seems Nancy told that ol' sunshiney Chris Wallace on Sunday that SHE now thinks:

"you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it. And other things that are maybe time that is spent better looking to the future rather than to the past."

Do we have a right to ignore it! LOL! Well, I dunno now, do we? NOW she wants to know this cuz she DOESN'T know??? Madame Speaker - please. Drop everything this moment, k? Grab your coat immediately and run on over to the National Archives Building...there's this document under treated glass housed over's called The Constitution of the United States. It's free admission, Nance. But that's ok - we'd pay for it if it weren't. But just go there...and please..FOR GOD SAKES WILL YOU READ IT???

I won't bother pointing out the second part of the statement though. The backdoor part. You DO see it, right?

The next thing I wanted to bring up is that I have a confession for you. No biggie really but you know, I'm kinda big on truth. All of it.

Yesterday's blog was written in complete silence. My tv has been off since Sunday. Still off in fact and will remain off until the Show is over...which may mean it'll never be turned on again. I didn't have to watch in order to offer commentary as to what the media jokers were doing to you and me. Wasn't rocket science, of course it wasn't. But, here's the point. Do you see how easy it is to create an illusion? If you read it, your perception would have been that I'd been watching the scene on tv, albeit thoroughly disgusted, but, nevertheless, glued and glazed. Verbal sleight of hand. Not a lie but an attempt to create a perception I wanted you to have. Did it work? My bet's that it did. THIS IS HOW YOU FALL FOR THINGS!!! PLEASE. STOP IT!!! If III could create a blog that leaves you with the impression that I was engaged in something I truly wasn't, (watching Obama Inc. on tv) what in the WORLD do you think minds far greater than mine can do to manipulate you??? Exactly what you saw yesterday: that the hijacking of the highest office in the land, (again) delivered to you by the twisted agenda of those r e a l l y in power, was a MASSIVE m a n i p u l a t i o n. Did it work?

Nine years ago, I'd have predicted that today would have seen me catapulted to the clouds, dancing in delight, breathing freely, able to sleep once again. So long, george! Here's your hat, where's your coat, gimme the keys to the plane! Glad I'm no prophet. I'd have lost my license. "No one ever could have predicted" that today could have been worse for me. How, my brain boggles, could this possibly be? It's not like we didn't have the answers because we did. Those of us who cared that is. They were all there, right in front of us, all the while. So, I can't just chalk it up to random chance. Seems more like choice, informed or not. But here we are, standing at an edge again. Of what? Of course I'm going to say it again. The abyss. Yes, that one - the one that looks backatcha....

Oh, you were expecting me to say something cynical? Well, surprise. I'm not. While I was busy myself looking into said abyss, what I saw was unexpected. There was light. In you. In each and every one of you who saw what I saw - who've been fighting what I've fought - who have shared my pain, my mourning, my rage. Who have gone on the record to say no, NO, we will not accept this trickery! We will NOT say it's ok when lies are shoved in our faces 24/7 and allow others to think for ourselves. WE ARE THE PEOPLE!!! It's NOT ok to be manipulated no matter the source, period, end of story!

My temptation to quit is strong. I am tired of this, bone and gut-wrenchingly tired of watching the potential for utter global destruction unfold. Thomas Jefferson said "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism" but he didn't tell us how exhausting that could be. Weary's a great word, isn't it? But after all is said and done, one thing remains. We must not be silent. No matter what. There are some things that will forever be worth fighting for and the freedom of all humanity is one of them. A big charge for sure and certainly not easy. It's tempting to sit back and say, well, I'm done. Or, there's nothing I can do about it. Even, well, I'm only one person - I can't make a difference. Pardon the pun but YES WE CAN! YES YOU CAN. YES I CAN.

If yesterday didn't drive that home for me, then nothing will. Because, when I looked into the abyss, I saw the light of You. And, from my heart, and especially those of you who contacted me in one form or another, whether you're with me or ag'in me, thank you. It's only for you.

I do want to take a moment to acknowdge "Ms Placed Democrat" and call your attention to her blog where you'll find some of the most talented, heart-felt, patriot writing you may ever encounter. Please check the link to our right here - we are not alone.
