In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden Schedule || Saturday, January 23, 2021

    1. I look forward to the day when President Trump’s published schedule is full of the positive and engaging events he has been known for.

      Thank you Rebekah for this wistful headline. Also, thanks for the descriptive headlines that allow me to avoid even looking at the re-reruns of Obama-era White House aids such as Ps-whatshername. I am not watching or reading news at the moment (and for the foreseeable future), so the headlines are more useful than ever.

      ((((hugs))) to everyone here at WHD. Keep the faith, and keep cheerful with real life. One of the bloggers I read said something to the effect of “The elephants are dancing, and we mice need to just stay out of the way.” I think that is pretty good advice, at least for ordinary folks like me. Our President Trump practices positive thinking, and we can too! :-)

      1. TIna, thank you for your words; they are good words. I saw/heard 95% of President Trump’s mid-term and last year’s rallies and based on what he said, I can say President Trump does believe on the positive side of life situations. What I don’t know are his internal emotions. I can only imagine what they might be. Seeing the (1) systemic destruction of everything good he did for our country which he loves dearly and (2) the persecution of those decent, hard working American for whom he worked so hard must be hard on his spirit. All the things he verbally stated about General Flynn and others when they were being unjustly persecuted are indications of Trump’s internal pain when innocent people are unjustly and maliciously persecuted. I feel so much for President Trump; my heart goes out to him. I have President Trump in my prayers/meditations.

      2. Respectfully, I believe the worst thing we can do, is tune out. Numb stasis, resigned acceptance, defensive ignorance, those are what they want us to engage in.

        Nay; if anything, we need to be more informed than ever. We need to keep watching the evils which will be inflicted upon our nation, and God forbid, possibly even people we care about. Our resolve must be ever strengthened; our righteous anger, ever stoked. Remaining vigilant, is the only way that will happen.

        It certainly will not be easy to do. Despair will always lurk behind such an effort, ready to pounce at any moment, to drag us into a slothful inaction.

        But we must persevere in the dark months to come. For there are already some hopeful auguries. The buyer’s remorse is already setting in with some, scarce a week into the new administration. Among the slighted, so far, have been labor unions, the Ute Nation, Canada, and the state of New Mexico. More will certainly follow; with no bad orange man to unite them, the Democrats will, sooner than later I believe, have little choice but to sell out their various competing interest groups.

        And then, with their coalition in tatters, and with Trump’s voters already united against them, they shall fall. Oft evil will shall evil mar, as they say.

        “Don’t tell me it’s the end of everything; it always seems the darkest before the light. There’s glory in the epic of life, and comfort in ensuring it survives. So don’t tell me it’s the end of everything; it always seems the darkest before the light.” (That admittedly sounds better when it’s sung.

        We are now entering the outer bands of a storm. It will not be plain sailing, but there are enough of us who know how to maintain the hull’s integrity, how to keep somewhat on course, and how to read the winds and the waves. We can all strike below and cry in our grog once we’re through the worst of it; for now, we need all able hands on deck.
