Those days . . . in North America – when INNOCENCE was a VIRTUE, ARE NOW SPIRALING TOWARDS PERDITION!
As I’ve written many times . . . I am Jewish, I was partially educated in a Montreal Yeshiva (Rabbinical College), I was a devout attendee to Sabbath Services, and I am very cognizant, comfortable and aware of Christianity.
I count many Fundamentalist Christians amongst my closest friends, and over the years, I have developed a close relationship with a Catholic Priest, who was an outstanding Montreal Icon during his day. And I treasure the relationship I have with my Pastor Friend from Amarillo Texas.
I’m ”telling” you this, because I’ve also made it clear that I am NOT a Religious Person, but that being “said” – I am a STRONG ADVOCATE of the Morals, Ethics and Values promoted in our Judeo/Christian Philosophies.
SO WHEN I WRITE . . . that we are travelling from our AGE OF INNOCENCE, backwards towards a time of DEBAUCHERY – I am saying this not from a religious perspective, but rather, from what I can clearly see, from what History has recorded for thousands of years in the Bible and elsewhere.
I HAVE NO IDEA . . . and neither does anyone else know, if GOD turned Lot’s Wife into a pillar of Salt for looking back at the destruction of the sinful people, but, it is written through Jewish and Christian Biblical History, how mankind has repeatedly been punished, including whole nations, which lived IMMORAL lives.
I will leave it up to Biblical Scholars, Rabbis, Ministers and Priests . . . to argue, whether and how GOD might have destroyed whole civilizations, because of their wickedness, or as I believe, the WICKEDNESS AND DEBAUCHERY has repeatedly destroyed itself, just as I believe the new debauchery we’re now living with, will do no less, which throughout the ages has happened at a price.
BETWEEN OBAMA and the likes of Trudeau (in the USA and Canada), and the people they’ve set-up to create what I consider to be EVIL Societies, where everything goes, from ACCEPTED Salacious and Perverted Sexual Lifestyles, to the approval of Intoxication through Legalized Drugs, to the teaching of LEFTIST Political Philosophies, which empower Governments opposed to Individuals . . . THE COMEUPPANCE IS NIGH.
I don’t want to sound like a preacher . . . but, there comes a time, when we should all start preaching COMMON SENSE & DECENCY, and stop being STUPIDLY POLITE.
Much of where and how our society has progressed has been in the wrong direction, which is unacceptable . . . AND SHOULD NOT BE ACCEPTED . . . and it’s time for all of us who want to live our own lives to stand up and FIGHT BACK. And I really do mean – FIGHT BACK.
My policy as you might know, and if you’re relatively NEW to this BLOG, you should know, is that I have ZERO TOLERANCE for LEFTIST Debate. I have so little use for people who want to defend Political Correctness, especially on the LEFT, who try to sell their CRAP on this BLOG in the COMMENT Section, that I simply remove the Comment and permanently REMOVE the person from the Directory who made the Comment.
If anyone thinks that I should have an obligation to live by their RULES and VALUES, because they figure they are so much smarter and better equipped to deal with MY LIFE, or the life of someone’s FAMILY better than me or others . . . they better think again.
The other day, after a pleasant restaurant supper, Anne and I had the DISPLEASURE of meeting a woman, who was with her husband and daughter, who were friends of the friends we had supper with.
This woman earned her living as a REGULATOR, and during the conversation that ensued between us, with me being as polite and subdued as is possible for me, so as not to embarrass our friends . . . I asked her what she thought gave her the right to tell me how I should live my life?
And then came the LEFTIST BLATHER. So I became more specific and personal, and told her that I rode a Motorcycle, so I asked: Where does she get off to tell me, a 66-Year old man, who NEVER took a nickel from any government, why it was her business, whether or not I should wear a Helmet.
I actually do wear a helmet when I ride, because I happen to think it’s the smart thing for me to do. BUT THAT’S MY DECISION.
HER RESPONSE WAS THE SAME TIRED LEFTIST CANARD . . . “Everyone pays into Canadian Healthcare, so we all have the right to tell people what they can do when it impacts upon the Public System.”
At that point, I more or less ended the conversation, before I said anything more to her that might have ended our relationship with our friends, who we really like. And also . . . several years ago, I made the very conscientious decision not to Debate or Argue with LEFTISTS, which is tantamount to smacking your head repeatedly into a brick wall.
I would have told her the following:
1 – As you were a Government Regulator, I paid for your Generous Salary, your over-the-top Perks and Vacations, your Job Stability, and your Pension that eclipses what the average Canadian will ever see after they can no longer work, and which is more generous than most Canadian families earn when they do work.
2 – Referring to the above point . . . I have never had an EMPLOYEE, whose salary I paid, tell me how I should run my business or live my life. So where do you get off?
3 – As for Healthcare and everyone having a STAKE IN THE SYSTEM . . . more than 50% of the people pay NO TAXES. 100% of the Public Sector Work Force – from Teachers to Firemen, Police, Politicians, Bureaucrats, REGULATORS and everyone else on the PUBLIC TEAT – PAY NO TAXES, since if we the people in the PRIVATE SECTOR, didn’t pay TAXES, Public Sector Workers like yourself would have ZERO INCOME.
And if people like me didn’t pay taxes, I would still make a living, and in fact, would bring home as much as 50% MORE MONEY, and you wouldn’t have a job.
And I would have assured her, that if the MAKERS never paid an involuntary Tax again, and relied entirely on HIRING people really needed to make our lives better, the ONLY difference we would feel . . . would be EMANCIPATION.
And what Public Sector Workers think they pay in Taxes, is only a return of some of the money they TAKE from the people in the Private Sector.
4 – SO . . . BASED ON THE PRECEDING – Anne and I, just like Millions of other MAKERS, whom are people who actually work in the Private Sector, who pay into the system, WHICH WOULDN’T EXIST WITHOUT OUR MONEY . . . and certainly not because of anything the TAKERS contribute, since they only TAKE. Or what the Public Sector Workers contribute, since they only give back in a very marginal way what they’ve been TAKING, and then TAKE back again in SPADES through their OBSCENE pensions . . . THEY DO NOT HAVE A DOG IN THIS FIGHT, and subsequently, should have no right to tell anyone anything about how to LIVE their private lives.
I’m simply not interested in playing their game . . . no matter what laws they pass, and what edicts they create – I SIMPLY WILL NOT PLAY, and I urge everyone who cherishes VALUES and Personal FREEDOMS, to think about the LIFE that you have, and the lives of your Children and Grandchildren, as to how you want yourself and your family to be JUDGED, when it all comes together and COLLAPSES under it’s own weight.
IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS . . . In the AGE-OLD WAR between EVIL and GOOD, there will be no one to redeem us other than ourselves. AND THAT DAY IS COMING.
ON THIS MEMORIAL DAY . . . I think about the men and women who fought and died defending our FREEDOMS, and I ask myself, what did these brave men and women die for, if our lives don’t belong to us, and we’re not prepared to carry-on the fight?
