BEFORE ANYTHING . . . I’m dedicating this Editorial to one of the FINEST People Anne and I ever met. Her name was Linda Roberts, who passed away early Thursday Morning in Montreal.
I’ve known a great many people who’ve passed-on, who also deserve accolades for the way they lived their lives, raised their families, loved and cared for their pets, and honored their friends, but very few who have touched my heart and the heart of Anne as deeply as the passing of Linda, which was so sad to both of us.
Sometime in mid 1998, I published a Best Selling Political Book called “Bastards”, which was available in most Book Stores and by mail, directly through my Quebec Political Action Committee (QPAC).
And one day, when Anne and I drove to the QPAC PO Box to check on the mail, which was a distance from where we lived . . . amongst the mail, there was a letter with a check for $20 in it, asking for an autographed copy of my Book, which wasn’t anything out of the ordinary, since by then, I had already sold THOUSANDS of Copies.
But, what made this order kind of special . . . was that it came from people who lived about a half hour walk from where we had our first Horse Farm in Saint Lazare, just North West of Montreal.
And even though it was DUSK, when Anne and I decided to take our Dog and hand deliver this signed copy of Bastards to the woman who ordered it . . . on we went.
When we got to the address given in the letter, it was already pretty dark. So when I rang the doorbell, I stood back into the lamplight, and when it opened, a very pretty woman about my age answered . . . and just stared.
I handed her the Book, and said . . . “I’m delivering the book you ordered”. She took the Book, said thank you, and closed the door. Anne and I stood there dumbfounded, when within a moment, we heard a male voice from the other side of the door ask, “who was it at this hour?” with her response being . . . “I think I just shut the door in the face of Howard Galganov”.
To which the man said . . . “Perhaps we should open the door and let him in”.
This was about EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO, which started a relationship with two incredible people, Linda and Gregg Roberts, who were our kind of Conservatives.
Linda was a Country Girl, raised on the farm, who couldn’t muster a scintilla of GUILE if she tried with all her heart, because it just wasn’t in her. She was as honest and as forthcoming as a human being could be. She smiled a lot. She liked to laugh a lot too. And she was really proud of her Husband and Children. And when it came to her Pets and Friends, Linda Roberts was as kind and reliable a person as anyone could be.
LINDA ROBERTS passed away early Thursday Morning, after a long, difficult, and Brave Battle with Brain Cancer. But before she died, she told Gregg that she had a VIVID Dream, where she saw the People and Animals Linda had loved, who had already passed-on, who were waiting for her on the Other Side.
According to the way Gregg described it to me, Linda’s vision was so clear and sublime, that her fear of dying was not an issue. And knowing Linda Roberts, and her belief system, which was very similar to ours (Anne and Mine), I can fully relate to what Linda Dreamt and her Peace in Passing, since I felt much the same, when I was diagnosed with a virulent form of Cancer more than 20-Years ago.
AFTER I RECEIVED THE NEWS FROM GREGG . . . I shared it with Anne, and we both cried, because the World lost a really decent person, not to mention the extraordinary loss to Gregg and their Children.
KNOWING LINDA ROBERTS . . . was both a gift and a privilege to Anne and myself, since Linda’s Values were non-negotiable, and absolutely secure in their belief.
Anne and I wept for Linda and her Family, and more than just lamenting the loss, it reminded us, that at our ages in our MID-SIXTIES, we don’t have all that much longer to enjoy life, since more than half of our lives are already done, that is if we don’t come down with an extreme illness, or suffer from an accident . . . there is no time for us to waste.
THE PASSING OF LINDA . . . who was so excited that I personally Hand-Delivered my Book to her, that she shut the door in my face . . . reminded me, that FIGHTING FOR SOMETHING WE BELIEVE IN, for the PRINCIPLES and VALUES, which Linda believed in, was so exciting and important, and her passion was so great, THAT IT WAS INFECTIOUS.
I’m watching an incredibly WELL-STAGED-SHOW, much like the shows created in the Hunger Games by President Coriolanus Snow, which Katniss Everdeen challenged and destroyed. BUT THIS SHOW . . . UNLIKE THE HUNGER GAMES – IS REAL!
I am not going to CRITIQUE Hillary Clinton’s speech, since like the Staged Shows in the Hunger Games, it too is FICTION . . . and void of any truth, so why bother?
AND WHEN THINKING OF A FINE PERSON LIKE LINDA ROBERTS . . . I can’t help but see how one person could be so genuine and really kind like Linda, while another could be so shrill, dishonest, and anything but fine, like Hillary Clinton.
AT THE BEGINNING OF THE DEMOCRAT SHOW . . . there was barely an American Flag in sight. But after hearing the criticism – all of a sudden, the STAGED HILLARY CLINTON SHOW WAS AWASH IN PATRIOTISM, with an abundance of American Flags around the stage, and in the hands of the phony LEFTISTS, who all of a sudden became Patriots for the cameras.
I watched Megyn Kelly do all that she could within the bounds of reason to suck up to General John Allen, trying desperately to get him to say HORRIBLE things about Donald Trump, who didn’t take the bait, but also didn’t disagree.
I also saw Megyn Kelly, Brit Hume and Chris Wallace Cheerlead for Hillary Clinton, as if they were on the Payroll, totally unlike anything they did for Donald Trump.
We also saw the FOX News People gush over Chelsea Clinton, whose speech to introduce her mother, which she read off the Teleprompter . . . wasn’t at all that good. Yet the FOX News People thought it was GREAT.
And I doubt if she had much to do with writing it. But regardless to that . . . it was just part of the Stage-Crafted-Show that was Make-Believe, which the FOX Panel hailed as a great success.
THEY’RE ALL WHORES . . . the Politicians, the Bureaucrats and the Media, who are willing to say whatever they feel they need to say to WIN, and then do whatever they wish once they reach their goal, which includes FOX News, which has proven they will kiss any LEFTIST ASS in order to get Hillary Clinton on their AIR.
Because Linda Roberts was EVERYTHING Hillary Clinton is not, and could never be. And no matter what CRAP that spews forth from Crooked Hillary’s Mouth, knowing that there was a Woman as FINE as Linda Roberts, gives me the strength and determination to reach beyond Crooked Hillary’s Diatribe of Lies and Fiction . . . and the IDIOTS who follow her because she‘s a woman, to FIGHT against her and all the people like her, with all the passion I can muster.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
