Landfall

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just STOP all this nonsense and get ourselves back to doing what’s right…

B8EC300A-4066-4E60-AE17-34E102014324AA641F52-5D16-44DC-86E9-4DC2FF9DC61Chttps://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/14/us/desantis-florida-migrants-marthas-vineyard.html

Immigrants. Seeking asylum. Seeking refuge. From violence, devastation, corruption… things we all know too well.

But they’re just living off of the welfare of others… taking away my hard-earned DOLLAR.

Yeah… what about that.

As if we needed another reminder of how vulnerable we truly are, when faced with a changing climate.

As if we need another demonstration of how truly BLESSED we all are.
Well… almost all of us.

Hmmm… how many ELECTORS does Puerto Rico have? Oh, right.
They’ve got the same number of SENATORS seeking re-election this fall.

Doing a heck-of-a-job there, Brownie.

… 

This is all I’ve got… my WORDS. My VOICE. There but for the Grace of God go I. I’m not a wealthy man. I’m not an educated man… I am merely a Man. But I know I am not alone. I STAND united with the MAJORITY.

Not the MAJORITY as I see it. Not the MAJORITY as I want it to be. The inherent strength and wisdom of the MAJORITY of this Nation, the United States of America.

Let there be NO DOUBT.

Cast aside your preconceptions and give rise to the KNOWLEDGE we have gained. The Will of the Majority of the United States of America is TRUE. It is JUST. The Majority of this Land STANDS for what is Right.

Two centuries of LIGHT have shown us, as if mere speculation were criminal.

If Ginni Thomas might be SO BOLD…

If Donald J. Trump might be SO BOLD… 

E6683956-14B9-492C-88FB-5007B3341A5C9518C0F6-6213-4D07-ADF7-0C51C44DC8EDhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/09/30/trump-lawyers-kise-corcoran-bobb/

Then it is my RIGHT… it is my DUTY to SPEAK OUT as well.

To be SILENT is to be COMPLICIT.

I will continue to stand in the way. I will continue to CALL OUT the inaction and hypocrisy that I see. I will do all that I can, with all that I have… for as long as the fates allow. I refuse to become well-adjusted to such a maladjusted society.

Unapologetically. Without FEAR or FAVOR. Our Rule of Law protects our Right to Protest. Without it… we have NO RIGHTS.

If we hold their Right to Free Speech as sacrosanct, then there must be some ray of HOPE for an idea such as mine.

I’m not a MAGA Conservative trying to sell you some bill of goods, pretending that I alone can fix it. Any FOOL can tell you that. I’m not a Liberal Democrat, who prioritizes Virtue Signaling or Affirmative Action.

I am a Progressive. From the Great State of KANSAS.

I STAND for Equality.

Full stop.

That is what we are LACKING. That is what this situation desperately needs.

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Puerto Rico, the people of Florida, and all of the survivors of these storms.

May their recovery be our priority.
