They’re Not Heroes

IF AMERICA DOESN'T START FIGHTING BACK NOW! – THERE WILL BE NO 2022:
HEROES DON’T QUIT . . . ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY DON’T FEEL QUITE RIGHT!

The Socialist Sickest Of The Sick Are The Lunatics With The Keys To The Asylum.

Before I Dump On Phony Hero-Worship . . . Let me State for the Record for the Umpteenth Time, which is Also Tied to the Phony Hero-Worship of Privileged Athletes – Professional & Amateur . . . The Worst Poison To Our Freedoms & Way Of Life . . . Are our Teachers, Teachers’ Unions, Hollywood, Television, Mainstream News Media, Social-Media, Big Labor & Big Business . . . All Of Whom Need To Be Dealt With As The Traitors To The Very Freedoms That Gave Them The Power With Which To Destroy Our Society.

IF AMERICA DOESN’T START FIGHTING BACK NOW! – THERE WILL BE NO 2022:

Congressional Republicans (Senators & House Members) Will be Remembered For Surrendering America Without A Shot.

WHEN THE RULE OF LAW BECOMES A SUGGESTION:

The Supreme Court Of America . . . has Already “Ruled” that STOPPING Evictions of People who are Not Paying their Rent is Unconstitutional – Covid Or No Covid . . . Yet, the Unelected CDC Mandate to Halt Evictions – TRUMPS the Supreme Court Of America . . . And Biden The Idiot-Puppet Concurs.

What Does That Say About The Adherence To The Constitution & How Far Away America Is From Becoming A Totalitarian State?

WHEN THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO – TWO COME FORWARD . . . TRUMP & DESANTIS:

Is DeSantis The Only Politician Who Is Willing To Get Into The Darkened Back-Alley To Fight For The Light Of Day?

Make No Mistake About It . . . Ron DeSantis Isn’t just Fighting for the Freedoms of Floridians. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is Fighting for the Freedom of the Thus-Far Still Free World . . . And I Don’t Take That Lightly.

In Spite of the Photo Opportunities of Men like Texas Governor Greg Abbot & Senators Like Lindsey Graham, who Love to Talk-The-Talk – But Barely Walk-The-Walk . . . and the Few Republican Governors, Members of the Republican Congress & Republican Senate who Are Out-There Fighting as Hard as they Can for American Values . . . Ron DeSantis Stands Almost Alone Facing The Hurricane Of The LEFT, Like A Sentinel Barring The Gates From The Barbarians.

THE OLYMPIC DISTRACTION . . . PLAYED WHILE AMERICA BURNS:

How’d We Get This Far . . . And How Do We Get Back?

You Might Want to Know . . . Why am I so Focused on Athletes at the Olympic Games who Choke Under Pressure? It’s Because the Action of World Class Athletes Reflect the Values & Determination of Where our Educators Have Steered our Population . . . in as Much as Everyone Deserves a Medal just for Participation.

It’s Interesting . . . Many If Not Most Of Us Saw The Movie – The Hunger Games . . . We’re Living It.

WE STOPPED BEING A MERITOCRACY MORE THAN A GENERATION AGO:

Because That’s How Dumbed-Down Our Society Has Become . . . That We’ve Become A Society Of Self Gratified Losers.

The Focus Of The Olympics Has Always Been . . . Who Is The Best In The World? First Place (Gold), Second Place (Silver) & Third Place (Bronze). Now, all of a Sudden, Here are Two High-Jumpers in the Same Contest who are Both Deemed Gold Medalists Because they Tied. How Could Two People Be The Best?

And How Did It Become Almost Normal Overnight that Men who Consider themselves to be Women Get to Compete Against Women in Women’s Sports as Equals?

Simone Biles Is An Athlete . . . She Was Competing Under The Flag Of The Red, White & Blue But Mostly For Herself . . . Full Stop!

WHEN YOU’RE WEARING THE FLAG . . . YOU’RE NOT COMPETING FOR YOURSELF:

Biles Might Be A Great Gymnast, Maybe even the Best Ever . . . But that Doesn’t Make Biles a Hero for Refusing to Compete – Because She Didn’t Feel Psychologically Ready.

In The Old Days, Which Weren’t All That Long Ago . . . When Anyone Competed for a Team, Whether School, City, State, Province or Country – That’s Who You Competed For. And Amongst the Best of the Best . . . were the Competitors who Fought Through the Pain and the Fear for Love of Country.

BILES IS NO HERO FOR QUITTING:

I Don’t Criticize Biles For Quitting Because She Felt Insecure – But I Also Don’t Praise Her . . . And Neither Should Anyone.

I Don’t Remember His Name Because It Is Inconsequential To This Example. But About 50-Years Ago, there was a Black Running Back from the USA who Played for the Montreal Alouettes (Football), who was Nothing Less than a Running Sensation. And I’m Not Thinking Of Johnny Rodgers (The Ordinary Superstar).

When This Player Whose Name I Can’t Remember . . . Took the Ball & Began to Pump his Legs, he was Poetry-In-Motion to Watch. The Problem Was . . . this Superstar Didn’t Like to Get Hit & Far Too Often After Every Hit (Tackle) he Would Lay-Down Waiting for the Trainer to Run Onto the Field, and then Limp-Off for Everyone to See Him in Pain.

Eventually, this Player Missed Practices, Didn’t Get off the Bench During Games Because he Didn’t Feel Right & Missed Games Because he Refused (In His Words) “To Play Hurt”.

Eventually – The Montreal Alouettes Let Him Go & No Other Team Cared To Pick Him Up. No One Likes A Quitter.

There is an Enormous Documented Number of Athletes who Knowingly Went-On to Compete with Sprains, Pulled Tendons, Smashed Bones & Psychological Distress . . .   Because They Were Real Heroes.

WE’RE NOT DONE BY A LONGSHOT . . . BUT WE BETTER START PUNCHING BACK NOW:

We Can’t Deal With A Problem . . . Until we Realize that we Have a Problem, What the Problem is, How the Problem Came About & What Really Has to be Done, as Painful as the Remedy Might Be . . . To Fix What’s Broken.

The Purpose Of This Editorial Is To Illustrate How Far We Have Fallen & How Far We Have To Travel To Return To Normal.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

  • Great call to action. We need to follow Churchill’s words from June 4, 1940, “We Will Never Surrender”.

  • An interesting novel worth reading about how Americans fought back against a system is titled “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross. It’s a worthy read. As of this very moment Americans are too lazy and apathetic to do anything other than complain on the internet.This is what happens when we have it too good, too easy for too many years. Even our poor are the richest poor in the world. Nobody has enough to lose yet to motivate them to action.

  • Your comments are spot on. I was a Shot Putter in High School. That is the event in which I was competitive. During a Track and Field meet, coach asked me to do the Triple Jump. Triple Jump was an event I had never done well in and had never practiced. However, I did as coach asked, and finished last. Why did I embarrass myself? Our Triple Jumper missed the meet due to illness. We had to field a competitor or lose the whole meet. I sacrificed my pride for the good of the team.

  • When you a member of a team you have an obligation to the other members. If you are not 100% and there is an alternate you must step down. Time will judge whether withdrawal was legitimate. The other members deserve a chance to win.

  • “IF AMERICA DOESN’T START FIGHTING BACK NOW! – THERE WILL BE NO 2022: Congressional Republicans (Senators & House Members) Will be Remembered For Surrendering America Without A Shot.” The Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist and philosopher Edmund Burke (1729-97) said it best, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

  • a big commiecrat Union leader and vote getter for the enemy has just left this earth, these union people are corrupt, get rid of the big labor unions and the Democrat party collapses, N.Y. State Correction officers did it and gave Afscme a kick in the teeth. i led the fight to git rid of the leadership by bringing in the F.B.I. only to have it stopped by Janet Reno, but we nailed the top people before she got into it.

  • On Hannity last night, Jordan was saying that the Repubs would get the House and Senate back in 2022. He was saying this like that was the goal. How can we can sit around twiddling our thumbs – waiting around for 2022. At the rate that Biden and his Admin are destroying American, will there be an America to save in November 2022? We have to fight back now. Like Mark Levin is saying – try to Impeach Biden, then Pilosi, then Harris and on down the line . . DeSantis is amazing!!

  • Sports has become too much of a focus for all of America. The true HEROS are the men and women who have put on the uniform in service of this country. Low pay, terrible hours, lack of support are just some of the draw backs, being shot, stabbed or disabled are a couple more. I am talking our Military, Police (Mostly Great People), Fireman who come to the aide of those in need daily. Stand and Fight, I will. John Ross’s Book “Unintended Consequences” Is a great book, Atlas Shrugged, Ann Rand
