my soul is tired

June 18, 2021

I’m tired…just tired.

lady bug lady bug
fly away home

Everything seems to be exhausting me
No matter how much sleep I get
Or how much coffee I drink
It never seems to be enough
my soul is tired
or so it seems

We have a family reunion to go to tomorrow…maybe it’s just that. Maybe I’m just worried how things will go… I feel like this is it, there will be no more reunions after this. The vaccination thing is troublesome as well. As you know, no one in this household has gotten nor will we get the jab. Could this be an issue?
Anyway, no one shows up. Last year there were six of us, Corona virus was to blame. This year will probably be the same – even though we moved the location, hoping it would help. I sent out an email earlier this week, so far my predictions seem to be correct.
The reunions have been going on since 1946, when my great grandmother passed away and all the sisters decided that they needed to get together once a year. It sucks that it might end after all these years, but it is what it is, if it’s supposed to be that way. One thing I do know is that I don’t want to go through this again next year…it’s exhausting.
Just get through tomorrow and see how things go. That’s all I can do, right? I guess I’ll let you know how things go…one way or another.

“If you ever find yourself empty from something you cannot name or know, find a stretch of ocean, a field, or mountainside, or even clouds, or trees. Because there are 1,000 simple ways to fill your tired soul so you can remember how to be, how to see, and most importantly, how to breathe.” – Victoria Erickson

Hope you have a great day!

‘I’m starting to wonder how bad four years without a president will be.’

Not sure how anyone else is feeling, but it feels like, for me anyway, a lifetime since the 2020 election, let alone the so-called inauguration. Four years…that is going to feel like forever! One day at a time, right?

Communism in America

June 17, 2021

* disclosure: below is the Communist Manifesto for America, introduced into Congress way back in 1963. At the moment, I’m not going to discuss it, just share for now and more than likely piggy back off of it in the near future.

I really wasn’t planning on sharing this today, but it has been on my mind a lot lately…so, if I don’t share now, well, who knows when I will. I have bold faced some key words…

Where do you think we are?

The beginning of communism

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. **Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N**.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. (Berlin Wall came down in 1989)

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The New Logo For The Democratic Party

  • Socialism
  • Anti-America
  • Anti-Jews/Isreal
  • Anti 2nd Amendment
  • Pro-Eugenics
  • Pro Hate

Modern Day Nazi Party

I know the article talks a lot about Russia, but I think it can be replaced with China… I really don’t like when the Democrat Party is called democratic. Democratic is defined as “of, characterized by, or advocating democracy”; “of or for the people in general”, where democrat is a political party. We, the United States of America are a Constitutional Republic, governed by the Constitution. Or at least we were…

May seem harsh, but it’s meant to be harsh. As always, feel free to comment, but as stated before, negativity and cruel words will not be tolerated.

June 17, 2021

My son and I got to talking about dreams, the apocolypse, troubling times and life in general and was intending to post this at least an hour ago. Considering, that I put this off til today…at least I got this done. I was hoping to post one more time today, we’ll see what happens. Yes, I had another dream on Monday – this time my dad was in it and I think it was meant to mean something! I just wish I didn’t wake up when these dreams happened. I’m just so startled that I wake up…anyway, it was a good dream.

No one is going to give you the education
you need to overthrow them

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal are at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.
