Today Is Sunday July 16, 2017 . . . Anne, Stryker, April the Cat and I are at “Brome Lake” in the Quebec Eastern Townships, attending a Three Day Event Horse Competition, as Spectators.
We’re in our Smaller Travel Trailer, in the Middle of a Field, surrounded by other People with Travel Trailers and Horse Trailers, none of whom have electricity, water or food, other than what we could all bring, in what has become an all of a sudden Community of sorts.
EASY, FAST AND INEXPENSIVE:
Anne and I know most of the People, but none intimately except for the organizers . . . and we do not have either a Horse or a Rider in this Event – In fact, we’re here because we were invited to join-in, and we thought this would make a relatively relaxing getaway, since we’re only about an Hour and a Half or Two Hours away from Home.
It’s quite interesting, that of this large group of People, some are Conservatives; some are Liberals (LEFTISTS), while some don’t know what they are. There are Older Folk like Anne and Myself, Younger People in their Teens and early Twenties, and at least one family with Infant Children.
Most of the Group are Cooking together at a Great Cooking Area they set-up more or less off the Cuff, while Anne and I are very Pleased to be cooking for ourselves . . . even though we are welcomed to join the others, as the others are more than welcome to share in what we are doing.
WHAT MAKES ALL OF THIS SO INTERESTING . . . is that this FLEETING arrangement is an Oxymoron . . . a Dichotomy of Same Interests, where People of Substantially different Lifestyles, Social Structure, Wealth, and Interests, other than Horses, all of whom are sharing in this ONE COMMON INTEREST where Politics is MOOT.
BUT I CAN’T HELP MYSELF . . . BECAUSE I SEE POLITICS EVERYWHERE:
As much as all of these People seem to be Caring Decent Folk, all Pulling in one Direction for a Common Interest – at the end of the Day, in many Socio Political Ways, we are all Adversaries . . . Which To What Extent Is Open To Time & Debate.
AS I’M WRITING THIS EDITORIAL . . .
The Canadian Government gave $10.5-MILLION to a Moslem Canadian Born Terrorist, who MURDERED One American Serviceman while Partially Blinding Another during a Battle in Afghanistan. The $10.5-MILLION was also Accompanied by a Formal Government Apology, because Canada didn’t do enough to help and offer succor to the MURDERER, while he was a Prisoner at GITMO.
And as I’m writing this . . . there are 5-Employees Of CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service), Canada’s Spy Agency, which is equivalent to a much smaller CIA, which is SUING the Agency (Canadian Government) for $35-MILLION, because of a Litany of ALLEGED INSENSITIVE Treatment to their Moslem Culture and Beliefs.
AND THEN I LOOK ACROSS THE BORDER AT THE USA . . .
I read, hear and see how a HUGE Number of People, probably Decent Fold as well (at least on the outside), of the MOST Democratic Country in the World, who are Walking in Tandem with the Most Corrupt and Disingenuous Media one would never have imagined several decades ago, who want to USURP their Democracy by Bringing Down a Duly Elected President (Trump).
I am also AMAZED at how America and Americans have gone from being the MOST Resilient and SELF-RELIANT People on the Planet, to having become a Nation of WHINERS, COMPLAINERS & DEMANDERS OF FREE STUFF.
I used to be Blown-Away by how America was INDEED A MELTING POT, where Immigrants Rushing to the USA, WHO COULDN’T ASSIMILATE FAST ENOUGH TO BECOME APPLE PIE AMERICANS . . . And now, what made America Great for almost 250-Years, has become a Reason for Embarrassment and Assault by at Least Half the American Population, led by the LEFT (Academics, Media, Politicians and Elitists), who for UNFATHOMABLE SOCIALIST VALUES are leading the Greatest Nation That Ever Was – Over The Precipice.
AND THEN CAME TRUMP:
Alex De Tocqueville . . . A French Historian, Philosopher, Politician and Writer, who was a passionate LOVER OF THE AMERICAN DREAM, wrote in the Mid-1800’s:
“The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
“Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.”
“In other words, a democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.”
THE PRECEDING WAS WRITTEN SOME 150-YEARS AGO:
How Could A Non-American, Much Like Me . . . approximately 150-Years Ago, have been so PRESCIENT as to see in what he wrote in Three Simple Statements, what it will take to DESTROY the Greatest Democracy ever known . . . that so many AMERICANS are so DEAF, DUMB & BLIND . . . THAT THEY CANNOT SEE?
The DEPTH of American (and Canadian) Socio/Political Lunacy has become so Great, that Sooner Rather than Later, its Insanity will Overpower Itself, which will happen with or without President Trump, because Socialism and Ignorance NEVER Succeed, while Decent Values, Personal Independence, Responsibility, and Hard Work ALWAYS DO.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE GIFT . . . The World has been waiting for, to get the REAL Counter Revolution Kindled . . . BUT IT’S NOT ALL ON HIM.
To Paraphrase – De Tocqueville, Who Also Wrote . . . “No Matter How Charismatic A Leader Is, He Cannot Lead A Nation In A Direction The Nation Is Not Prepared To Follow”.
I’ve used this Quote many Times, while Defining the GUILT & CULPABILITY of the Germans, the Europeans and all the Others who Blindly Followed Adolf Hitler, because as far as I’m Concerned, if it wasn’t Going to be Hitler, it would have been Someone Else, since that is the Direction Germany & Europe were looking to Travel.
AND IN 2016 . . . No Matter how much MONEY & DISINFORMATION the LEFT, RINOS, The Banks, Wall Street, The Media, Academics and Elitists threw AGAINST the American People, WHO STILL BELIEVED in the Constitution & American VALUES . . . the People were not about TO FOLLOW IN A DIRECTION THEY WERE NOT PREPARED TO TRAVEL.
So – Here I Sit . . . Very Early Morning, before having so much as a cup of coffee, listening to the Happy Voices of the people all around me, as they Prepare Breakfast and Enjoy each others Voices while they eat, WONDERING . . . how many of these people SHARE MY VALUES in my Socio/Political World?
I DON’T REALLY WANT TO KNOW TODAY . . . How many of these People Voted for Justin Trudeau, Despise President Trump, think that we should be MORE Accommodating to Immigrants who are Nothing like us, who believe in Something For Nothing, who would support paying $35-Million to 5-Employees of CSIS, because of Moslem Hurt Feelings, and think Omar Khadr, the Murderer and Blinder of American Servicemen Deserved the $10.5-Million and the Official Apology . . .
Only Because This Really Isn’t The Right Time & Place.
Everyone Is Nice . . . Everyone Is Having A Good Time, and I’m Thinking About the Words Of De Tocqueville, and how many people amongst us would read his words, understand his meaning, and see where we’re heading?
It would be nice if I could think about other things once in a while. But I guess that’s not who I am. But I’m Here And Enjoying Myself Nonetheless.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
