In My Last Editorial (Don't Cry Me A River - January 19, 2019), I wrote a Bit about my Beginnings, not because I thought it would be Interesting Reading, but Rather, because I was Angrier . . . More-So-Than-Usual.
I Wrote about some of the Hard-Times I had Growing-Up, not for any Sympathy or Approbation, but so I might be able to offer a Personal Perspective & Bona Fides for my Opinions which Followed.
The Truth Of My Last Editorial Is That No One Really Has It Easy.
And with that being “Said”, very few People are Born with a Silver Spoon in their Mouth. And even those Few amongst the Many, who are Truly Born into a Financially more Secure Home & Environment . . . for them too, Life isn't Necessarily a Bowl of Cherries.
How Many Millionaire & Billionaire Lives Are Worth Trash?
How Many Hollywooders, TV Actors, Singers, Composers, Writers, Directors, Producers, Academics, Business Moguls . . . ETC, who we Constantly hear about, who are Drunks, Druggies, Misogynists, Trollopes and whatever else? Or have Children who are in Worse Social State than themselves?
SO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT . . . No One Has It Easy & None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive. So what Gives Anyone, Specifically the LEFT, the Right to make things More Difficult for any of us, than it Already Is or Has To Be?
SO . . . When I Bear Witness to the LEFT, Deciding for Others, what they Deserve in Life, as if it is Somehow their Prerogative To Do So – Or how the LEFT Decides for the Many and for the Few . . . what is Acceptable Speech & Unacceptable Speech, because they Either Agree or Don’t Agree with what is being Said . . . It Makes My Blood Boil.
AND WHEN I READ, SEE & HEAR . . . The LEFT going all Ape-Shit over the Poor Government Employees, who are Furloughed for a while, knowing that these same Government Workers will be Paid-In-Full once the Democrats Figure that they’ve Milked this Political Game for all they Could . . . It Rankles Me Beyond Description.
And When I Read . . . Consistently - that Most Americans (Canadians Too) are Living from Paycheck to Paycheck, and very Few Americans or Canadians for that Matter could Ante-Up $1000 of their own (Not Borrowed Or From A Credit Card) Money, if their Life Depended On It . . . Save Me the Guilt for Several Hundred Thousand Government Workers, who are Not being Paid for a while, in the Full Knowledge, that they will be Paid 100% Much Sooner-Rather-Than-Later, for Work many if not most of them weren't Required to do during the Shutdown.
AS IT IS . . . The Government Employs Too Many People, Pays Too Much in Salaries, Provides Too Many Paid Days-Off, Gives Too Many Perks, Guarantees Continued Employment even for Incompetents, gives Too Many Vacation Days & Provides Far Too Generous Pension Plans . . .
While The People (Many - If Not Mostly White “Privileged” Americans), who don’t work for the Government, who don’t have Guaranteed Jobs with all the Perks (Bells & Whistles), who Struggle to Raise their Families, Keep a Roof over their Heads & Put Food on the Table . . . ALL THE WHILE – ARE PAYING FOR PRIVILEGED GOVERNMENT WORKERS.
After Writing The January 19th Editorial . . . I Set it Aside, and Debated with Myself, as to whether I would Publish it or not, because it was too Personal and too Angry. But It Was What It Was, and I made the Decision to go Forward with it, because I saw something in Myself that gave me a Frightening Perspective about all of us Like-Minded Conservatives . . . And Remarkably - I Thought About Julius Caesar.
HISTORY ALWAYS REPEATS ITSELF . . . DIFFERENT PLACES DIFFERENT PLAYERS:
In 49-BC . . . General (Governor Of Gaul) Julius Caesar Had A Dilemma.
Caesar was Stationed with his Troops (13th Legion) in Gaul (France), while Caesar’s Political Enemies were Establishing their Authority in Rome, Squeezing Caesar Out.
Prior To 49-BC . . . Rome was being Governed by a Group of Incompetent, Corrupt, Privileged and Secure Bureaucracy (The Senate), under the Guise of Serving the People.
The Senate Feared Caesar, because they Understood that Caesar Understood them, and they wanted to keep Caesar as far away from Rome as Possible. And they wanted to Weaken him, to the Point where he would Lose his Legions, and any Chance to Defeat the Senate and Take Rome.
Caesar Was Effectively Given A Choice . . .
Stay In Gaul & Perhaps Survive . . . Or Cross The Rubicon & Die.
The Rubicon Was A Shallow River . . . more or less a Stream Between Gaul & Rome . . . which Delineated the Boundaries of Territory. And Caesar Understood . . . That Once Caesar Crossed The Rubicon – THERE WAS NO GOING BACK.
History Tells Us . . . As Caesar's 13th Legion Crossed The Rubicon - Caesar Told His Generals; “THE DIE IS CAST”.
After More Than Two Years Of Insane Anti-Trump Rhetoric . . . and the Vile Displays we’ve Witnessed Carried-Out by the LEFT (Occupy, Black Lives Matter, Antifa & now the Woman’s March) . . . And The Truth - that the Democrats want Socialism, Open Borders, A One World Government & Controlled Speech, So-Much-So, that they are Willing to have the Entire Nation Suffer - As One Of Their Sick Means To Achieve Their End . . .
The LEFT Has Crossed The Rubicon & The Die Has Been Cast.
