I believe a country and a community will have a lot of what it values most. Our country has a lot of debt, a lot of vehicles, a lot of bombs, a lot of psychotic criminals running our economic and political systems and a lot of willfully ignorant drones – disguised as citizens. As I drove along West Chester Pike I tried to observe what it is we value today. This route is inundated with automobile repair shops, gas stations and auto dealerships. We cannot live without our cars. I can say without a doubt that I saw not one manufacturing facility along this entire route, but if you want your Japanese car fixed, detailed, or waxed, you’ve hit the jackpot.

Whatever the reason, there you are, flying in a commercial jet to Denver.
Suddenly, even before conscious mind can register the horror, the plane is disintegrating in mid-air, cartwheeling into the ground in a blaze of burnt metal and plastic. Your remains are never identified.

I an predicting that the first guy who uses a Second Amendment weapon to bring a drone down that’s been hovering over his house is going to be a folk hero in this country.

In my opinion its all the same cause and will have the same result, when we stopped creating or nurturing citizens in favor of subjects, we turned down this road. How long has it been since the High Schools in your area stopped teaching the Citizenship and Government classes.( In my day, taught by a Vet.) The schools turned to teaching “self-importance” and “entitlement” creating the un-important and the un-entitled.
