Cognitive dissonance, again

Just visited Mamacita and read her post reposted from last year.

Gotta say, she is definitely able to put voice to her thoughts.

No wonder she is a professor, and an instructor of persons.

She is quite right you know. What a change we have seen in this country over the past decade or two.

I am reminded of books I have read by Elie Wiesel, Corrie ten Boom, Richard Wurmbrand, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and others, that have detailed life in places where gummint has been oppressive. If you ain't been there, you really cannot appreciate it.

When I look around me, at what America is becoming, I am alarmed, to say the least!

Now, for some reason, the smoke from the smokers in the apartment below me, seems to come up into the bathroom through the holes in the wall where the water pipes run. If we lived in New York, or California, and were I of the bent, it would be instructive for me to call the police, and have the residents arrested for violating the law of smoking inside a building, or where someone could be offended by the smell. Sheesh!!

I find it really hard to believe that gummints would make laws outlawing wood burning fireplaces in homes, or barbecuing/grilling in your backyard.

To my military mind, there are some people in this country that need to get a life; instead of being too personally involved in their own life. Except, you know, there really is a movement to turn over our lives to the gummint, and sadly, there are enuff sad people in gummint who are only too willing to take control of our lives and tell us what to do, where to go, and when to do it.

The truly sad aspect regarding those sad people in gummint that want total control over us, is that if they were to go to a country where gummint is totally in control, they would not have the opportunity to get into the halls of power.

Well, enuff ranting and raving...Christmas is a time for love and reconciliation, not for hating, and alienation.

Wishing the merriest of Christmas' to anyone and everyone who takes the time to read this.

Oh, please go over and read Mamacita, and take the time to say hi, she really is nice.
