Just when I think the condition of our world cannot possible get any worse or any more unbelievable, it does. Over and over and over again we read about events or conditions that are not only unbelievable, but appalling, disgusting and one more nail in the coffin of life as we knew it. I can no longer say life as we know it, because our lives as we knew them are long gone. Disappeared beneath the onslaught of decadence, crime, hatred, bigotry and greed.
Can someone tell me why it is not okay for everyone to have freedom of speech instead of a few chosen minority groups? Why is that okay? Two Days After Reporter's 'Race War' Murders, CNN Returns to Phony Race-Baiting. It's okay with some groups, call them Group H, to disagree with another group, call them Group C, to the point that they remove all rights to free speech of Group C just for having a differing opinion or viewpoint. Take this article for instance, Scientists Ask Obama To Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics. What? You can no longer think for yourself and be skeptical of others opinions? It is now a crime?
It is unbelievable the lengths to which our current leadership is going to destroy our country. It is so obvious and blatant, no steps are being taken anymore to disguise it at all. Like this move, Obama to Nominate First Openly Gay Service Secretary to Lead Army. Or this one, Obama Admin Won't Reveal to Congress Number of Americans Killed By Iran.
Why has it become open season on law enforcement? Georgia Police Officer Shot and Wounded; 2 Suspects Caught. Better yet, why haven't the politicians of our country, especially those in leadership, come out strongly against the rash of murders recently? Are those doing the killing acting at the behest of the folks in charge of the show? You can't help but wonder. But remember, you have to be careful about thinking too much, you could be prosecuted for that.
The financial and economic roller coaster ride continues to get wilder by the day. One day it will rocket right off the track and land in a big heap to become indistinguishable from it's previous appearance. Amazingly enough there are still companies that promise no matter what happens, they will be able to protect your wealth as long as you give them your money. What a joke! Give me your money and I will protect it, even in the event of a total economic collapse. Sounds like voluntary robbery to me. Many folks continue to sound the warning, with some warnings coming from surprising people and places that don't usually issue warnings. Mark Spitznagel warns: If Investors Thought August Was Scary,"They Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet." Then there is this possibility, Fed Opens Negative Interest Rate Pandora's Box: What Happens Next. Another impact on the economy is that Nearly 50 Million Americans Now On Food Stamps. So are we ready for a repeat of what happened in 1930 or more recently in Greece? The Day All the ATMs Ran Out of Cash.
Many situations are brewing around the world, and as the heat is turned up, from warm to hot, something will boil over. From here, Security Council 'Gravely Concerned' Over Temple Mount Violence, to here, Why Kim Davis Was Right - And Is a Hero, to here, Migrants Crisis: Neighbours Squabble After Croatia's U-Turn. Where will it end? It only seems that it can end in conflict, major conflict. The Pentagon is Preparing New War Plans for a Baltic Battle Against Russia. Not only that, but differing countries are forming new alliances, Russia Moves It's First Tactical Fighter Jets to Base in Syria.
Where will it all end? I really don't know. What I do know is that regardless of how disturbing knowledge of what is happening in the world is, it is better to be informed and know what the adversary is up to. I have had more than one person lately tell me how depressing it is to know what is
happening in the world. It may be, but it is better to know your enemy than to have to guess what he is like. Why do we read history? To know what has come before to help us understand and be prepared for what is going to happen again. There is a reason 'history repeats itself' is an old saying, because it does. Mankind does not appear to have a very long memory, and tends to make the same mistakes again and again. Now it's our turn to live through the downturn of society into the shallow, narrow minded, pleasure seeking, mob mentality that has come to encompass all of us, voluntarily or not, this is where we are.
Know what is happening. Don't get caught up in the distractions of the day. They are there for a reason, and most fall for the drivel dished out by the talking heads every day. The mainstream media are no more news outlets than the man in the moon. They are the bought and paid for slaves of TPTB, spewing forth the script they have been given without regard for the accuracy of what they are saying. It's just another example of speech control instead of freedom of speech.
Keep an eye on each other. Pay attention to your instincts. Listen for that still, small voice. Wisdom and reason are your best friends right now. Pay heed to the warnings they are giving you. Time is short.
Until next time - Fern
