People have gone “bat crazy” because of the “bat craziness” of the federal government. There is a collective unease in America today causing public rage and incivility. As Biden’s and Harris’ approval ratings decrease, Americans see our political differences and racial tensions increase. We realize we have a federal government executive branch that only gives lip service to the American dream. Our own government wants to label us, spy on us, silence us, intimidate us, control us and our children and our schools. Our own government wants to destroy the sovereignty of United States borders. It lets illicit drugs, dangerous gang members, child traffickers and unrecognized terrorists pour over the Southern Border. Illegal immigrants are given preference over American citizens. Citizens who are struggling in this post-pandemic era to keep themselves afloat economically with ever increasing inflation and burdensome regulations. Meanwhile, members of the House and Senate are exempted from a COVID vaccine mandate. Illegal immigrants are “offered” a COVID vaccine at the border, but not “required” to take it according to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Huh?
As expected, Fauci the Fearsome is warning Americans with his usual Holiday Fear, to celebrate Christmas only with “vaccinated” family and friends. I wonder how many families and friends will still be speaking to each other by Thanksgiving over this hot button issue? And how many parents and grandparents will be able to get kids those coveted toys by Christmas if the supply and distribution networks are not quickly and effectively dealt with. The current Biden plan does neither.
Behind the scenes, Obama, Soros, Ron Klain and Susan Rice are working feverishly to puppet Biden and keep us from believing our “lying eyes.” We have a two tiered system of justice which arrests, charges, investigates and imprison only conservatives as “right wing extremists,” “white supremacists,” or “domestic terrorists.”
Recounting all this has put my stress level into overdrive. I can see the same thing everywhere. Driving recently on a Saturday afternoon, I observed a simmering road rage. Everybody was impatiently in everybody else’s way. The airline industry has reported thousands of aggressive incidents on flights resulting in injuries to flight attendants and passenger arrests. A woman was recently raped on public transportation while other passengers did not aid her or call 911. They were, instead, recording the terrible incident or their cell phones for a quick and sensational social media post. Are followers really that important? Apparently so.
What has happened to us? I think fears about current state of our incompetent federal government, particularly Afghanistan and illegal immigration, has too many of us insecure and rightly worrying. Subconsciously, we wonder “Who has my back?” That has weighed on our collective psyches. Protectively insulating us from pain, but chaffing away at our patience, understanding, empathy and compassion for one another. These are not good times. These are confusing and polarizing times. In my many decades of memories and experiences, I have have never seen such a corrupt, cold, fractured and chaotic federal government. Or such a deceitful and corrupt media. People may think, subconsciously, this government doesn’t care about me or my family. Why should I show care for others. I am being labelled a “racist,” “oppressor,” and/or a “terrorist,” because of some concocted, unproven, even inaccurate, ideologies. I am being stripped of my freedoms of thought and speech and my pursuit of the American dream. Why should I be nice and civilly engaged, when being called the worst of names I do not deserve?
These labels have become self-fulfilling prophecies, not in the extreme, but in everyday living. I am not being treated with humanity, so why should I be humane to anyone else? Do we now live in an alternate reality where only the hardened, the corrupt, the cynical and the evil survive? What will happen if we are intimidated into silence? We fear life will only get worse as more control will be foisted upon us by the government. We no longer feel SAFE in what was the “land of the free.”
The world around us is insane. Very little makes sense or is ethical anymore. Justice is no longer equitable. We are being driven “bat crazy” by a failing, inept government. The same government charged with protecting us and supporting our rights to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Much has gone wrong.
“With hope for the future, no prediction, in regard to it, is ventured.”
