Geezer Update: I’ve struggling with a variety of issues pertaining to putting words on the screen. Setting aside those mundane elements that few will care about; I am simply frightened.
It seems that everyday there’s at least one new revelation suggesting that the country I call home is disappearing before my eyes. I don’t watch TV news – I read many news sources everyday and trust my own filters, still I find little to fire my optimism.
For a while I was convinced people would wake up, but there is simply not much sign of that happening.
We are shrinking our military (budget,etc) and worried about guns and flags as if there was no/zero/nil threat extant. We are pushing an aircraft of visibly questionable value and getting rid of some that simply do the (expletive) job well.
We are being forced to accept behaviors that make our enemies drool. AND we are not being allowed to simply say “I don’t care”, either.
I won’t go into further detail here – you know, or you don’t, but I will offer this:
I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
I fear lines are being drawn. Is it yet time to take a stand?
