Following the 2020 election, the feeling of something being very wrong in this country hit its pinnacle with millions of Americans.
Over the years, we have endured an increasing more corrupt government, a dishonest media, a rigged financial system, increased crime, and a drastic loss of civil liberties, and Draconian corporate censorship. So much has happened and from so many different angles, that it has become difficult to keep up with it all.
Yet throughout this assault on the hard-working majority, by a well-funded and well-publicized lunatic fringe, Americans have kept the faith and kept fighting for their liberties. Such is the case with grassroots activists fighting for our freedoms, best exemplified by Michigan State Rep. Matt Maddock.
This post is going to be a little bit of what happened to me yesterday (and I’m pretty sure that some of you will be able to relate to it) and a little bit from my inbox.
I finally had a chance to spend some time with my friends over the weekend whom I haven’t seen in a while due to the unknown virus from unspecified origin ™. To put it very, mildly things didn’t go very smoothly.
These are friends (and they still are) that I’ve had going back several decades now. We don’t see eye-to-eye on all things politically. Despite that, we still got along over all that time and doing things that friends normally do for one another like helping each other out here and there and attending each other’s family events.
That ended about two years ago when they went into pretty much full lockdown mode, not wanting to have anything to do with anyone. Until last weekend, any attempts to meet earlier have crashed and burned when they would only agree to meet if certain ”precautions” were taken (mask wearing, “vaccine” status, meeting only in medically “safe” parts of the state, etc.).
I’m not 100% sure of what had changed.
Quite honestly, I didn’t care.
They were still my friends and I was still interested in meeting with them after they had finally agreed to drop their ludicrous conditions.
As sad as that is for them, how they choose to live their own lives is their concern. I had been living my life as close to normal as I could without succumbing to the fear and paranoia created by the propaganda promulgated by the government.
