Who’ll Stop The Rain?

I hope you enjoyed the solar eclipse.  It is a sad time for our beloved country.  But it just as well could be our long past due and needed healing time.  I do not like to write with emotion.  It is rarely a good idea to share thoughts when angered.  But when the anger is accompanied by the gnawing sadness that comes with seeing the destruction of the greatest land God ever blessed in order to appease the sort of radicalism one would never expect to observe in the United States of America, then a mental offload is therapeutic.

This is where I stand.  If from any point on the human color spectrum, the religious spectrum, or ideological spectrum you are of a supremacist mindset brother, I would not venture across the road to throw water on your carcass if you were on fire.  You are so far away from the founding principles of our country, I don’t even know you.  You preach equality, justice, and freedom of expression but in action demand submission to your philosophy.  It is domination you seek not equality.  Your actions and words are the antithesis of American ideals bound in equality and individual liberty.  If you march beneath an emblem of hatred (just pick one) or desecrate the one emblem under which many people have fought and died so that you may have a freedom of expression, you are not an American.  You are a brainwashed bastardization of an American.  You are a product of decades of social engineering and an education system that failed you.   If you are uncertain about what American ideals are, put down your twitter feed and the propaganda handed to you by your sponsors who have only ill will for our country and read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.  They are a bit longer than a tweet and to my knowledge, OMG, there is no cyber lingo translation.  If you are a governmental figure (civil servant or politician) or a police officer whether local, state or federal, or a member of the media and you can justify taking sides in a riot having a surplus of knuckle heads on all sides you should lay down your credentials and walk away because you are a disgrace to the offices and positions of trust you hold and to our democratic republic.  You are worse than the rioters in the streets.  You are the cowards who circle the brawling ignorant egging them on to more violence and destruction while hoping that somehow you may profit from it.

I do not apologize if I offended your sensibilities.  To hell with your sensibilities.  Although that is the method these days isn’t it?  Say something and then backtrack and declare you were taken out of context.  There is only one context here.  Our country is being methodically and systematically destroyed and every action you see in our cities is planned subversion.  It is important that you in politics and media who continue to throw gasoline onto a sparking little fire and you mayors and governors who direct police forces to stand down while people are injured and property is destroyed know how I and the other 99.99999 percent of Americans feel about what is happening and what you are causing to happen in our country.

Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember? – Mark 8:18

For those of you who speak well and put on airs of intellect, do you not see what is happening to our country?    Did you not hear the voice of our people election day past?  We the people are tired, very tired.  Do you not remember where and how we began and our sometimes rugged journey to a pinnacle never reached on this earth by any other nation?

Let me see if I can put it into a nutshell for the tweet minded.  First there was a war on God.  He was kicked out of our schools.  Then the demand grew throughout the land for removal of Christian symbols from public places.  No pushback, just another thing.  Then wearing a Christian symbol in the workplace became offensive to non Christians because it scared the hell out of them.  Literally.  This is anti-Christian bigotry.  It is the bigotry accepted in America.  Now we’ve moved from families in Church on Sundays to Churches closing and sitting empty.  Abnormal behavior became normal and normal became abnormal.  We discovered triggers and micro aggression and the need for safe spaces in other words shut up and make no sudden movements lest a pampered child begins to hyperventilate.

“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” – Michelle Obama

Well Michelle, we stopped teaching our history to school children.  Instead of teaching them about our founding principles and how they make us the exceptional nation, we taught them that the founders were all evil rich white slave owners therefore the founding documents themselves must not be good and logically America is not and never has been good and will only become good after we “change our traditions, our history.”  The men who devised the most brilliant from of self-governance in recorded history, which laid the foundation that enabled us to overcome the bad things in our history, are to be hated not revered.  Best we forget history and the failures of other types of government and immerse ourselves in worship of a tin-pot dictator human godhead.  Over in North Korea, people are executed for failing to do just that.

Learning from the past is productive for any society.  That is the purpose of accurate history.  Wallowing in the past is destructive for any society.  We have removed the learning and replaced it with wallowing.  Now these same undereducated and brainwashed spoiled children are offended by statues – symbols of our history good, bad or ugly.  Statues are just beginning.  This was the Soviet Union approach, the Taliban approach, the ISIS approach, the NAZI approach – no history existed before us.  We are the present and the future.  As Mrs. Obama stated we have to change our history.  So Americans, if you own any accurate history books or founding documents, you may want to put them into a vault.  Book burnings including the little pamphlet containing our Constitution cannot be too far away.  Once we have purged ourselves of the ugly periods of our history and our evil governing documents devised by evil men then logical progression is the human purge of those who caused our problems and those who refuse to sing our mantra.  This is necessary to begin anew.  Look up NAZIs on Google maybe you will become familiar with what a NAZI truly was and how that minority of hate-filled master race driven lunatics killed millions.  Actually, maybe you should do your research using real books while we still have those.  You still read books don’t you?  Then you can compare it to the journey that your puppet masters have placed you on.  With luck you may not start to hyperventilate.

I am fan of 1960’s music.  That was my impressionable period.  Thank God though that I never became a terminal hippie.  Still a favorite band of mine is Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR).  One of my favorite CCR tunes (after Suzie-Q) is Who’ll Stop the Rain.  With his music, John Fogarty was often a good story teller.  He said this song was about Washington.

Long as I remember
The rain been comin’ down.
Clouds of myst’ry pourin’
Confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages,
Tryin’ to find the sun;

I think he accurately described the state of politics and radicals with “Clouds of myst’ry pourin’  Confusion on the ground.”  There is much confusion poured out on the ground these days from the mouths of politicians and media.  Good men through the ages, Tryin’ to find the sun.”  I believe we’ve had them in our history, but we’ve managed in their prime to kill them off.  How does the song go, Abraham, Martin and John?  I believe there are good men and women out there today trying to find the sun.  The problem is there is no one willing to help lift their voices up through the storm.  The people cannot hear their message because it is drowned out by the people with the big megaphones pushing  division and stirring confusion on the ground.

I went down Virginia,
Seekin’ shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable,
I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals,
Wrapped in golden chains.

I went to the government seeking shelter from the storm.  I believed what they told me while I watched the Washigton Tower of Babel grow until no one understood what the other was saying.  Or they simply stopped listening to one another.  Big plans, big promises, new deals all presented on gilded parchment but never delivered to the people.

Heard the singers playin’,
How we cheered for more.
The crowd had rushed together,
Tryin’ to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pourin’,
Fallin’ on my ears.
And I wonder,
Still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain.

They continued to promise and the people continued to cheer them on.  The crowds rushed together yet the clouds of mystery continued to pour their confusion on the ground.  The same big plans and promises kept falling on my ears.  And I wonder, still I wonder.  Who’ll stop the rain?

There is only One who will stop the rain.

  1. By the time I figured out how to log in again, I forgot what I was going to say. WordPress has so many different forms that I wish they’d do the same for everyone. Good article J.D.
