Sex, drugs, the NFL and American Idol

In the eighteen hundreds, tens of thousands of people walked or rode in covered wagons across our country to new unexplored lands. Sometimes they traveled thousands of miles to find a place where they could build a home and a new life for themselves. With their own sweat and blood they cleared land and built homes for their families. They did not ask for help and for most none was offered. If today’s generation of young adults were somehow transported back in time and had to relive this feat, the majority would fail.

For the most part Americans today are a nation of sheep, never knowing that they have become nothing more than ‘domesticated humans’. When you do take the time to look up from your texting or TV and see that wrongs are being committed whether in Washington or around the world, some people do, for a short time, get angry but it does not last long before you go back to the TV or head over to gym to work out and soon all is forgotten. Because so few people follow through with any tangible action to change the way things are done those who are in control continue to do whatever they want.

This nation has been domesticated, not overnight, but by a slow inexorable process of indoctrination and brainwashing. It may not have started with the explicit purpose of changing the very face of our country but the end result is the same….the America of today is not the America of 50 years ago. Some may say that this is a good thing and even I have to admit that there have been some positive changes in our society, but they are far outweighed by the loss of belief in God, family, morality and the almost total annihilation of pride in America.

OK your are asking where is the sex, drugs, NFL and American Idol I put in the title of this posting. It is all part of the matrix that has been weaved, by the powers that in actuality run our government and our world. ‘They’ create this Matrix to occupy your mind and to keep you from taking any concrete action to change the way things are done. The people that settled this country had nothing to escape into when life went from hard to unbearable, so when England increased the tax on tea it was part of that final straw that moved these people from talk to action.

They did not just rollover and say there was nothing they could do; they banded together and said ‘enough is enough’ and declared their independence. Today we have higher taxes, massive loss of jobs, illegal people from other countries taking our tax dollars for free medical assistance and food. Plus government intervention in every aspect of our daily lives from what to teach our children in schools to which doctor we can see. We have a government that records our every phone call and email and says it knows better than we do how to spend our hard earned money by throwing it away supporting companies going broke and sending financial aid to countries that hate us.

What will it take to get you to put down that cell phone and remote?

Because there will never be a change in how Washington operates until we rise up as one voice

and shake the very foundations of our nation’s capitol

by saying enough, we want our country back.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA then did a three year tour with the Army in the Far East and Texas. My first carrier was as a printing pressman lasted for 26 years until 1993. Then after a series of life changing events in 1993 and 1994, I went to work for my son in 1995 on an outdoor adventure series shot in Alaska. The series went on to win two awards and was later aired on PBS. While working on the video project I was so taken by Alaska and its people I bought property and after completing the project returned to live here. For the first three years in Alaska I worked as an assistant hunting guide. During this time I obtained an Alaskan fishing guides license and began running fishing trips down the Yukon river. In 2001 I began helping a friend build a home then the one home turned into three and I was offered a new place to live and have been here ever since. While at my new home I became a licensed Ham radio operator so I could talk with my family in the lower ’48′. Though the cabin has no full time electricity I have a battery bank, solar panels and a generator for when the need arises. Out here there is of course no running water, phone service or TV but I have found the pleasure of books…lots and lots of books. I also continue to work on Video projects and have a small editing suite for working on them. Even though I miss my children and grandchildren my daily life is full. I have few close by neighbors but I do manage to spend time with the woman that gave me this place to live and her daughter. On those few times when I may be down I have only to open my door and walk outside into the wilderness that surrounds me and I can see Gods handy work all around.
