Observing the Big Game is all we have left with no sports and no travel and no fun being legal.
Being an optimist with a touch of cynicism and a cloak of curmudgeonry well worn with the lessons of time with idiots and scammers, I do believe things are turning fun again.
The Deep State, Dems, Globalists, Media, Coastals, Elites have overplayed their hand big time in the game.
As Americans we respond well to a crisis, for a while. We sign up, we donate, we do without, we forgo freedoms for the crisis. We show up in floods with boats and trucks of food and water and begin pulling fellow citizens and their pets out of danger.
The Elites named above failed to grasp that our sacrifice and goodwill only last as long as we can collectively see a danger. They wildly over estimate the influence of their captive corporate media who at best can feed propaganda to maybe a third of the country.
We are entering the stage of “The Emperors New Crisis”.
The numbers do not track with the narrative, people are seeing a greater threat by many orders of magnitude at the imposed governmental destruction of millions of small businesses, millions of communities and millions of jobs.
Trust in the Elites is dropping like a stone. Anger at being played for fools is growing by the “Non-essentials” every time hospital staffs do a tik tok video. Every time the goalposts on lockdown are moved. Schools are closed and teachers get paid. “Essential Workers” are now empowered to make the “Non-essentials ” miserable by chasing them off dry sand or harassing children playing outside.
I do not despair that there exists a third of the population who believes all the noise, who cowers in their homes and fears death from every corner. They have always been there.
America works because more than half refuse to accept the abuse being dished out by the truckload daily.
We fought fascism and communism for decades to ‘protect the “American Way of Life”. People’s way of life is being threatened by their own politicians now and the wreckage is getting visible.
Some will say we are doomed, that people are sheep.
Only a third, and the two thirds seems to have had enough.
We have a rising group with anger at loss of freedoms.
Two sides of leaders will emerge, one offering a rapid restoration of freedom with normal risks and the others promising safety for the few and misery for the many.
For a time, it will be the best entertainment available.
I am betting on the Deplorables. They have the numbers.
