The weekend was replete with good food, happy visitors and talk. We heard stories about the really old days, over a century ago when our ancestors came to this country and made their fortune and then lost it and then started over again. It was exciting, pathetic, sad, funny and very familiar. Familiar because it’s family. And we heard tidings of some old friends and relatives who are ailing. But as we age there will always be more of that. But there were tidings of the next generations venturing out into the world. That’s always a necessary and welcome development. And we made plans for upcoming gatherings. Easter is almost upon us and we’ll be hosting the family which is great.
And now here we are beginning a new week. Chaos reigns supreme in Dunwich and I expect pandemonium when I arrive at work tomorrow. But the world we live in is in a permanently catastrophic state and if no other good thing has come of this shambolic existence, it’s that we’ve become less delicate. Anything less than a megaton of destruction is routinely just shrugged off as “more of the same.” Well, good. We’ll continue on and deal with these occurrences, one catastrophe at a time. Who knows maybe they’ll run out of plagues eventually and we’ll come out on the other side.
And at least there is a bit of humor to the whole thing. Even the outside world is starting to catch on to just how pathetic Joe Biden and his gang of losers really are. Even the Saudis, who have never been known for their love of humor have joined in the act. Saudi tv has a skit where Biden and Harris look-alikes wander around a political soundstage hopelessly lost and stupid. Imagine when even stone age people like the former headhunters of the Amazon jungles and the New Guinea highlands join in the fun. Maybe it could become a meme when representatives of every race and ethnicity compete on Rumble to mock Dementia Joe and Magic Bus Kamala. That would be a true moment of solidarity for the whole human race. It chokes you up just thinking of it.
But seriously, this is going to go on for a good long time. As a very smart man said long ago there is a lot of ruin in a nation. Before the US is degraded to a level where people will do anything about it, it will have to get a lot worse. So, I intend to do my best to take care of those I love and try somehow to make my immediate surroundings a little less horrible. And when I have the time, I’ll put up some of my scribblings here as moral support for folks like me. If you have something to share leave it in the comments and if you have something longer, you’d like to see posted send it to me at the e-mail address listed or just say so in the comments and if it’s something I can support I’ll probably post it up.
Things are a lot worse than they used to be. But one thing has improved. We now know the truth about the country we live in. Tens of millions of people now know that what we were told was a big lie. And that is a powerful thing. And I don’t know how, but I’m pretty sure that one day that is going to have a tremendous impact on some critical moment in our history. A country is made of more than just banks and bureaucracies. I think there is a component that depends on the trust of people. And this country has lost that. It was that characteristic called American exceptionalism. It was belief in ourselves as being part of something remarkable. Now we know that’s not true. And pretty soon the rest of the world is going to find out too. The day will come when one of Joe Biden’s gang is going to ask us for help and he’s going to get
