“I’d rather be dead than to lose my liberty. I have no fear we’ll ever lose it because of invasion from the outside.
But I do have fear that if may slip away from us because of our own indifference, our own negligence, as citizens of the land.”

Their April song.

how beautiful it is to stay silent when someone expects you to be enraged

(pinterest)

confidence is silent
insecurities are loud

I forgive people
but that does not mean I accept their behavior
I forgive them for me
so I can let go and move on with my life

Avoiding certain people
to protect your emotional health
is not a weakness.
It’s wisdom.

~ The Minds Journal ~

Wonder will carry us farther

I would rather have a mind opened by wonder
than one closed by belief.

“Those who would give up essential liberty
to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
~ Benjamin Franklin

The more you research
the crazier you sound to ignorant people

privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it doesn’t affect you personally

“The ability to have a choice in what you do
is a privilege”
~ Anton Yelchin

I’m not crazy
my reality is just different than yours

Judge me when you are perfect

A SERIOUS LIFE TIP:

Even the nicest people have their limits. Don’t push them too far and don’t try to reach their limits, because the nicest people can also be the scariest assholes once they’ve had enough.

hope you have a great day!

take it easy

January 16, 2021

~ I’m doing this post in two parts today…when you reach “hope you have a great day!” that’s the end of the first part. After that, it gets more political. You can decide if you want to read beyond that.

“Take it easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
And take it easy”

~ The Eagles
(Take It Easy)

On the 12th of January, we had two ash trees cut down. I thought they were black gum, but the guys who cut it down said they were ash. Which explains why they died…ash trees have been dying around here, because of the Emerald Ash borer. A very destructive bug in the U.S., especially for the Ash.

It took them about two hours to drop them and cut them into 15-16 inch pieces. Now we need to split and stack it.

Looks like a lumberyard!

We’ve got enough tops to use for kindling to last quite a while.

hope you have a great day!

With all the craziness going on in the U.S. right now, I am taking it easy, as suggested earlier in the post. Last year was a year of survival, this year will be a year of living…at least for me. Just have to wait out the next few days and see what happens. I’m hearing all kinds of things, but I’m keeping most of it to myself…for the time being. You will probably find that I am even more reclusive, taking care of my property and family.
There seems to be a lot going on, none of which the main stream media is reporting. We’ve been told that there will be an emergency broadcast alert in the next couple of days. Again, we have to wait and don’t speculate on anything. What is happening here is a fight against absolute evil…

wanna know how you can tell the truth is being told?
Facebook blocks it, Twitter deletes it, & YouTube bans it

On FaceBook I have been banned from creating any groups or events indefinitely. I guess I share too many political posts there. I try not to do it here, but will do so if I feel the need. We will see how things go, that’s all any of us can really do right now. And pray!

At the same time I refuse to let anyone quiet me, especially if it’s something I believe in. I have been relatively quiet for too long, as well as many other American Patriots. I will only post what I can prove, or my opinion on such a matter.

One thing that’s keeping my interest is that there are thousands of National Guard in D.C. Yeah, I get that they want to keep peace during the inauguration, but they don’t need 21,000. I saw a video of a construction guy headed to work showing all the police presence – hum-vies, guns, and security checkpoint that has the spikes/bar that goes up to stop traffic. They’ve gone all out, there’s something else going on. I’m not going to speculate. The only thing I will say is keep your eyes and ears open, turn in to other news if you can (I listen to NewsMax, and OAN for news, but also listen to Dan Bongino on Rumble and WMAL on the radio), and get out the popcorn. Oh, and get prepared for a bumpy ride…make sure you have water stored, extra batteries, pets are taken care of, plenty of food – especially if you live in or near any hot spots (areas where riots popped up last year). Use your common sense, God gave it to you – use it. Pay attention, if something doesn’t feel right.
Oh, and the FBI has declassified top secret documents pertaining to the first impeachment of Trump. I haven’t read anything yet, but I have a friend on FaceBook that shares stuff.
