Stupid American people!

We aren't stupid. We are overworked. Underpaid. Under a relentless stream of propaganda. Whole communities that are damn near starved of any meaningful news. Systemic government oppression that leaves our most vulnerable out of the loop or in a position where they have to work even harder just to stay involved. Fear of where our next mortgage/rent payment or meal is going to come from.

Uncertainty from every direction.

We are getting way too close to survival of the fittest. Way too close. Barely sustaining is hardly what we should consider survival to be in this country.

We spend most of our time trying to gather what we need for ourselves and our families. Sometimes that is a job that can't be completed. Our days are often booked out way in advance. Not planning for a night out with the friends. Not a day on the river. But planning to manage one or three jobs, take care of our children or elderly parents, and sleep when time allows.

Why am I saying this? Have a bit of patience folks. It's not currently easy for the American people to tune in. That is often a result of the system itself. Not lazy or stupid Americans. The news does get out. Stories do spread. Facts do make their way to the ground.

When it comes to the Trump shit show people are getting the point. Don't concern yourself with Trump supporters. Work on everyone else. If you have time, post on message boards, talk to neighbors and friends, call your congress people, send a couple of bucks to a solid outfit helping our cause.... Help to get the word out.

We will win this. Trump will be impeached or voted out. Politicians need their base on board. They need their districts on board. These things take time. Support has to build.

1. Stories do spread. Facts do make their way to the ground.

Yes, they do.

I posted Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff's opening statement from today on my fb page.


Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=m9HiLh5gTng


If somebody is willing to watch this for 5 minutes, Chairman Schiff sums up very nicely the importance of Mueller's findings and what they mean to our democracy.

3. Important things...

Spent Saturday fishing with 4 of my great nieces & nephews.
They were between 4-7.
I taught them to bait a hook, and yes they ALL hooked themselves in the process.
We only caught 2 fish, pretty Crappies, but we all had fun.
They did not seem to understand knot tying so I am going to work on that.
I did not have a single thought about politics for 6-7 hours.
It was great, recommended.

4. Extremely important.

 

Great job.

I taught three of my nephews how to tie all necessary fishing and basic boating knots. I was a bit surprised at how into it they were. It helped them to visualize tying a hook on by using rope and a swimming ring instead of a hook and fishing line.
