The Second Coming of Trump Won’t Save Us
There’s an old story a preacher told us one time.
“Torrential rains were upon them. A flood was coming. An old man sat on his front porch watching the road wash out when a neighbor came by in a truck and hollered out the window at him. You better get in the truck. Flood’s comin’. I’ll be all right. The Lord will take care of me. Waters reached his porch. A boat came by …you better get in the boat, waters rising. I’ll be all right. The good Lord will take care of me. The man ends up on his roof. A helicopter comes. Same response. The man gets swept away and drowns. When he gets to Heaven, he asked God, Lord, why didn’t you save me? God replied, GOOD GRIEF! I SENT A TRUCK, A BOAT AND A HELICOPTER. WHAT DO YOU WANT!”
I’ll say it again. The second coming of Trump won’t save us. Ladies and gentlemen, the fact of the matter is that we got outworked. Yes, even cheating takes work. Wringing our hands while we wait for justice is futile. They are not going to give it to us. The whole system is corrupt. We’re gonna have to take it.
We are going to have to redefine our concept of “Q”. “Q” is you. “Q” is me. “Q” is everyone willing to do the work removing the dead weight by pounding the pavement to get like minded people in office. Maybe that’s who “Q” has always been. Just us.
I was a child of the 60s and a stoned rock and roller in the 70s. Times were good. We laughed at our grandparents reference to our three channel TV saying “… that contraption will turn your brain to mush”. We just went back to our 228 channels and got lulled to sleep by Gilligan’s Island and Charlie’s Angels. They even gave us C-SPAN where we could watch every move our legislators made but GOOD GRIEF, that was like watching paint dry and Charlie’s Angels was only two clicks away.
In our defense we had real journalists watching our backs back then; men and women of character and integrity. Daniel Elsberg, Joe Gallow, Woodward and Bernstein blew the whistle on LBJ and Nixon. Times are different now. We’ve been submarined by back room deals, talking heads and a VERY liberal slanted social media.
Facebook got us the worst with their skewed algorithms. We were getting the idea towards the end but it was too little too late. We were just screaming into the wind.
We know now that we will have to work as hard as the Democrats did. We are going to have to get out of our echo chambers and be seen and heard.
We have to find a way. Trump can’t save us alone. GET ON THE BOAT!
