I guess we are all in search of a better quality of life. After a particularly rough year, most everyone is tethered to a certain amount of emotional exhaustion. 2020-2021 will go down as two of the worst years of our lives.
We’ve experienced a pandemic, riots, business loss, joblessness, hopelessness, media manipulation, character assassinations, a bogus election, political corruption, medical confusion, racial strife…the list just goes on and on. Death is the worst of it.
Many people died during the pandemic. Not all of the Coronavirus as reported by the mainstream media. Many died of broken hearts. After most of America spent many months imprisoned in their homes or apartments, it isn’t any wonder that depression became a byproduct of this national and indeed worldwide disaster.
We must remember that not everyone had the comfortable homes as presented on television while we were being told to “just stay home, save lives!” Some people, even here in America, had shanty homes, tents or they lived in their cars or some makeshift abodes. The great divide of the haves and the have nots became evident. But the MSM never admitted that. That would have been like a confession of sorts for them.
The folks of the mainstream media are the elite. Most in the media are millionaires, which isn’t that hard to be nowadays if you combine the value of their homes with their holdings, adding retirement plans, as well as the devaluation of the dollar! But more than that difference many in the media are detached from the reality of most Americans. Those who live paycheck to paycheck were not prepared for a shut-down enthused pandemic.
Yet they (MSM) continued to report about peaceful protests while businesses and police departments were burning down behind them. They were not reporting the actual news for an entire two years! They simply told us what they wanted us to hear to get us to believe and behave in a certain way. It has all become self-evident. We now know unequivocally that the news can no longer be trusted. Their halo has been busted and it cannot be repaired. So why do they still exist? I don’t even know.
Many on the left, without regard for logic, are clamoring for cities to defund the police across America. This is their response to perceived racism in the police departments in bluely led cities where almost half of the police officers are in the ethnic minorities. The whole idea is absurd and defies reason.
The reason for my diversion in thought is that the media is on a mission, it would appear, to destroy the fabric of trust in our country. While the police are on a mission to protect and serve. It would be more logical, really, to defund the mainstream media! The police departments might have a few bad apples (very few) but the media is singing the tune of the Marxists roaming our streets seeking to cause harm and creating chaos.
Our VP Kamala Harris’s campaign collected funds to bail out rioters in several blues cities during our Summer of Love. No questions asked. And since we have seen that the media and the Democratic Party are one and the same we can easily conclude that they are on the side of those wreaking havoc in the streets of Portland, Minneapolis, and yes even in cities like San Antonio Texas.
Imagine my surprise when during the pandemic/riotous season, I saw a video of police officers from the San Antonio Police Department’s union representatives pleading with the city last year, not to defund the police! They shouldn’t have even had to ask that! All because of the George Floyd death in Minneapolis, activists in San Antonio call for the defunding of the police!?
But I’ll describe it. Ten to fifteen police officers representing themselves and their union, all uniformed and handsome standing behind a mic. A sunny day in San Antonio is not unheard of. What struck me was that all of them were as dark or darker skinned than me. And I’m black. So they want to punish these officers? In a reaction to a tragedy of what a white police officer did in Minneapolis!? To a black dude? Because black lives matter? Geez! This world has gone mad!
Defund the Democratic Party. Defund MSM! Defund George Soros! (I’ll explain that one on a later blog) Defund Planned Parenthood. Arrest Antifa and Black Lives Matter! Restore peace in our cities. Stop all of this nonsense!
This wicked call to defund the police puts us all in peril. Today is Memorial Day when we remember those that sacrificed everything for our freedom. While we remember our heroes, let us fight to preserve the very freedom that they fought so hard to preserve. We not only have a right to fight for it. It is our duty. They will have not died in vain.
This is how we do funerals in my family.
It was a very hard day. But we survived it. My Mother would have been proud of how we carried ourselves.
Trust and believe I’ll be writing about this most awesome Mom in the near future. I miss her so very much.
