Been a hectic couple of days, but I’m still upright and breathin’ so I must be doin’ sumpin right,,,,
Saw this while playing catch up on some places and peeps,,
I was in early middle school when the Holocaust was first introduced to my learning curve. Met two survivors of it through a teacher. Proof positive was the serial numbers tattooed on their forearms. Don’t recall which camps they were in, (hey, its been 40 years,,, ) but i remember the look of haunt in their eyes retelling of those times.
I’ve talked about my reading teacher in the 8th grade, the one that was an escapee from East Germany in the 50s. Her parents sacrificed themselves (literally!!!!) to get her out of the hell. She told me several stories, introduced me to writings from others that have been from equally horrid hells, and is definitely one of my influences is my waking over the last couple of decades.
I freely admit, when I was younger, the swansong of Socialism called to me. It has a that effect until you’ve felt the reality of, well, for lack of better words; rape. Because that is what all of the programs and plans and legislation amount to; Raping the productive to support the ‘plan’.
I’m already seeing headlines for a fourth round of ‘stimulus’. “How do you turn a Capitalist into a Socialist? $1400.” They figured out they can bribe the populace with the peoples own money and can graft on all sorts of pork at the same time. Just dig through all the line items with dollar figures from the last round and see just how little the bribe was in comparison to the pork sent out to cronies and even enemy states like Iran.
Re-read the last line in the above meme
Just gonna be a matter of time before the winds topple the charade, or blow the embers of tyranny into full flame.
I don’t believe this administration is capable of such; only because the cannibal feast happening is so obvious. But if another, stronger charactered person with more support than Gropey or Kamalaladingdong were to take the wheel,,,
We’ll see, won’t we?
