According to past narratives, this country has been destroyed many times, starting with the advent of rock-n-roll. Yep, my parents were convinced that this new genre of music spelled the end of the USA. There were prophecies of doom prior to rock-n-roll of course, but I chose to start with this one.

Here is a sampling of some other predictions of the demise of the United States,( not in chronological order ):

The Hippy movement, the invention of the cell phone and internet, giving black people and women the right to vote, immigration, Obama as President, Trump as President, Biden as President, the USSR, Iran nuclear deal, trade imbalance with China, N. Korean nuclear program, Asian, swine and bird flu, Democrat control of Congress, Republican control of Congress, Ebola, Covid 19, denying climate change, fighting climate change.............................................the list is virtually endless.

We don't discuss things using logic and reason, we deploy as many emotional triggers as we can manage, in an attempt to frighten people into leaning into our point of view - " if you vote democrat, this will be the dire consequences ", " if you vote republican, this will be the dire consequences ". The fact is, the USA has weathered EVERY "catastrophic" event thrown at her, but not without turmoil and heartache. Did the negative consequences occur as a result of the "warnings" being true? No, the negative consequences occurred as a result of, a: people who believed the warnings continuously waited for the other shoe to drop and failed to live, b: people who refused to believe that the warnings were wrong tried to MAKE them come true and c: political operatives created new "warnings" to keep people riled up.

We are our own worst enemies, and we will be defeated, not by external forces, but by our own pig headed insistence that Americans who don't think like we do, are actively trying to destroy this country......................which is also THEIR country.

So right. No one it seems takes time to climb a mountain and look toward the east in the darkness of morning and then watch the sun burst forth on the horizon. Too busy rushing hither and yon to take time to be grateful. The youth I interact with still seem to have dreams but they also seem so uneducated. Everything must be looked up on their telephones or whatever those things are. However, they are looking towards a good future for themselves. My wife says when I am driving my 1929 car I am less prone to yell at other drivers so there must be something better in the old way, for me at least. Watch a sunrise and a sunset, then stay up to watch the moon rise. The world becomes a better place. Thanks for the good writing, gets our minds in the right direction.

A chainsaw will take care of that easy enough.
