I was born eight months before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. By the time the war was in it’s final stages, I was old enough to understand what was going on. My uncle was a medic, serving in the Southern European campaign and was killed by a sniper in Italy, on the last day of the war. I remember quite well the impact that had on my family. I remember the ration books with the stamps that allowed you to purchase certain commodities, and all of the other activities people engaged in an all out effort to be victorious. Virtually everyone was engaged even in the smallest ways. My aunt was a weldor in the San Francisco ship yards. My Father worked in factory that made artillery gun barrels. Life was anything but normal, but everyone was willing to make some sort of sacrifice to support the war effort. Workers had to carpool because gasoline was rationed, as well as rubber, which meant new tires for your car was nearly impossible to obtain.
As you might imagine, nearly everyone became a super patriot. I say nearly everyone, because even in those days, when you would least expect it, there were the detractors, the anti war people. The numbers were few, but they were there nonetheless. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, they were not very popular. People were jailed for being a sympathizer of our enemies. If you were a conscientious objector, you could also find yourself in the slammer, if you refused to report for duty if drafted. It was a no nonsense period in history. The United States was going to victorious or else. Sounds good doesn’t it?
All during the war, the government mounted a huge public relations effort to keep everyone focused on the goal. They urged everyone to help in any way they could. Posters and signs were everywhere, and the newspapers played a huge role as well.
When the war was over, the national pride was still alive and well. Movies were made that glorified our victory, great books were writen that told the stories of our magnificent heroes. Those heroes were celebrated, and many of them became famous movie stars. Some of great movie stars enlisted and served proudly. It was a generation of very special people. Tom Brokaw, referred to them as the ” Greatest Generation “. They truly were.
All through my public school years from 1946 through 1959, the Spirit of America was alive and well. We started our school days with the Pledge of Allegiance and the Lord’s Prayer. Every single student in the class repeated those words, every single day. That single activity was priceless in making students aware of the importance of God and Country. It certainly didn’t make everyone perfect, but sure as hell didn’t hurt anyone either. Our school curriculum was all about learning life skills that we could use as adults, in our everyday lives. Politics were never discussed, and sex education was the responsibility of our parents. If we did something stupid, we were mildly punished and sent home to let our parents finish the job. Nobody cut us any slack. If we didn’t perform to expectations, we received a failing grade, period. Too many failing grades and you found yourself in “deep poop”. Your friends didn’t cut you any slack either if you failed. It was a ” do or die ” atmosphere, and I’m glad. The only snowflakes we knew of, were the ones that fell in the winter.
Then, these people showed up. These are the ancestral origins of today’s snowflakes. These people are the offspring of the people that went through World War Two, born circa 1950. Their parents were born circa 1930. So… how were the sacrifices and memories of the horrific nature of WWll so quickly forgotten? The hippie movement began circa 1965, only twenty short years after the end of WWll. Eighty-five million people died in WWll, 3% of the total world population in 1940. The only conclusion one can draw, is that human beings are incredibly selfish, and don’t really consider any of this important if it didn’t, or doesn’t affect them. If it didn’t happen in their lifetime it’s just not worth their time to think about. That’s precisely why an astonishing amount of Americans know nothing about the Constitution and Bill of Rights, or American history. I wouldn’t consider myself an expert on American History, but thank God, my teachers cared, and thought it was important for us to know the origins, and foundations of our rights and freedom.
And now, we have these idiots. These dumbasses are willing to throw out all of our great legislative traditions and American values for the sake of political power. These people are the most pathetic examples of Americans I have ever known. Their presence in the halls of Congress are the equivalent of David Duke in a Black Lives Matter meeting. They don’t belong there, period. They are an utter disgrace, they themselves should be recalled for abuse of power. I can’t bear to look upon their lying, and deceitful faces. They have absolutely no connection to the ” Spirit of America “. They are empty shells. They surely don’t belong in the great halls of freedom that our Founding Fathers built.
With clowns like this in Congress, backed up by a corrupt and totally fake mainstream media, how do we ever regain civility? These people sow seeds of hate, and the media doubles down by telling outright lies to back them up. It is nothing less than a giant cluster—-. Brett Kavanaugh wasn’t guilty of any of the lies and and accusations made against him. Everything they threw at Brett Kavanaugh was concocted in the back rooms of leftist slime balls. Donald Trump is likewise not guilty of a single thing he has been accused of. The left knows they can’t remove him from office, their hopes are to brand him as having been impeached, and weaken him as a 2020 candidate. Understand one thing, if you don’t understand anything else; the Democrats will literally stop at nothing to gain full and compete power over you and your rights and freedoms. They care nothing about the this great Nation, they would throw it all away in a heartbeat for utter and complete control of all things. Sounds a bit like that infamous biblical character, that Eve met in the garden one fateful day. Very similar strategies.
Fight these people with all of your heart. Do not let them strip you of your rights and freedoms. Once that happens, you will not live long enough to see them restored. As a matter of fact, if this great experiment fails, it may never be seen on this earth again. We can’t allow that to happen. The United States of America will always stand against tyranny, and oppression, in spite of LaBron James and the NBA.
