“The structure is set ya neva change it with a ballot pull”

So make a move and plead the fifth ’cause ya can’t plead the first

“A ballots dead so a bullet’s what I get”

    SLEEPER CELLS. How is it that “all of a sudden” Coke a Cola came unhinged over Georgia LIBERALIZING it’s voting laws? How is it that Delta Airlines “all of a sudden” became more interested in social justice than profitability? How is it that the MLB left Georgia “overnight” and fled to a “whiter” more voter restrictive State? How is it that School Boards across the country just now want grades eliminated and attendance thrown out? How is it that math is racist? How is it that even the Wallstreet Journal is afraid of its own employees?
    SLEEPER CELLS. These agents of destruction, trained by the radical leftist educators gamed the system to be placed throughout big business and popular culture and to be ready to strike at the first sign of weakness. And the American ethos has NEVER been weaker than it is now. If it is American, destroy it!
    Placated with “free bread and circus”, and falsely frightened by impending pandemic plague, the sheeple will do what they’re told, and are shamed into silent acceptance.

      I think you nailed it Bruce! The sleeper cell agents have been working through our education system for decades and it is finally starting to pay off in a big way! I fear there is nothing we can do to even slow it down at this point.

    When are the few remaining common sense legislators going to stand up and call things for what they truly are? Who is going to have the courage to speak against the Far Left using taxpayer dollars to fund their own security patrols while simultaneously using police for private agendas while promoting their defunding (and taking away gun rights…to leave conservatives disarmed and unarmed)? When is someone going to stand up to the likes of hate mongering AOC and not allow her to intimidate citizens for free speech, let alone use public dollars for her private Marxist agenda? When will the trials for treason begin for the radicals refusing to uphold our laws and working tirelessly to destroy America? Until we courageously start speaking the truth and demand that the people we elected unwind the false narrative, America is going to continue on this downward spiral… For AOC, Omar, etc. to even be allowed to hold office is as insane as the cancel culture/false narrative/witch hunt times we find ourselves in.

      49.7% of us who see where we are headed had our vote counted, and I think at least 5% of us tried to fight but had our vote thrown out. So if honest democracy existed in November of 2020 we wouldn’t be in this sinking ship. But as Hugh Hewitt said, if it ain’t close they can’t cheat, but it was close because so-called conservatives were upset by some mean tweets. The poles said suburban women brought into the orange man bad routine. He offended their delicate sensibilities. Then we had the jealous RINO who weren’t going to let an outsider take away their power. Then you had conservatives like George Will wanting to throw out the baby (and everything America ever stood for) out with the bath water.
      So w. gardner, you ask when we will fight back? Some of us are, and a few in power are, but we just had a revolution, and we lost. We lost the culture war, and soon to lose the country. The deck is rigged, and stacked against up. Until parents are willing to stand up to the Education System and either change it or PAY to send their kids to schools who care about traditional American values, WE’RE SCREWED!

        I know how defeatist this sounds but sadly I don’t think there is any way to turn this around at this point. WE’RE SCREWED is right!

      I think at this point they are afraid to stand up and if that is the case they shouldn’t be there either. It is either fear or they are part of it, on the same side but appearing as opposition.

        What you say reminds me of CA politics. You wouldn’t know it but about 1/3 of the legislature is Republican, but I don’t know or hear a single name. Yes, the media is a Democratic tool, but a real fighter would find a way to be heard.

        It’s the ruling class against the ruled class…

        Good (but sad) point.

    Gosh, I hate to feel so defeated… yet in reality, if the Woke are having kids and hte legislators are only in it for their own power, there is no hope. Although my property taxes pay for schools, I don’t have kids so no longer attend school board meetings (I did years ago but they were already too arrogant to allow public commentary). Still, I’m not ready to completely throw in the towel…I save the sanity I still have left by not engaging in MM but…

      I’m with you w.g. I have been a fighter my whole life, and I will continue to fight. But it will be the fight of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn against Stalin. Just like in the USSR, something will happen someday. Maybe a fairly bloodless change like in the USSR, or a bloody war like our “first” civil war, the left will fall someday here as well. If you really want to get depressed, watch some Victor Davis Hansen. As a college professor, he sees the rot first hand.

        Thanks for the info Bruce but in all honesty I try to limit the amount of depressing info I absorb which can be challenging because there is so much of it (like the current administration, activities of the Far Left, impending Great Reset, tracing, social scores, etc.), but I’ll stand united with you and other patriots in unabashedly loving America. Wishing you — and our country, all the best.
