America The Bad
The Beer: The Red Wheat IPA is pretty good. I expect to check the wine in the next few days and bottle in the next week or two.
The Bicycle: I am up and on. Three times last week. Trying to get my legs back under me.
The VWRC: Have you noticed how the Leftists are always focused on "fairness"? They claim to be the arbiter of "fair" and have created all kinds of monsters to force their view of "fair". Whether the EEOC, unions, minimum wage, homosexual marriage, free birth control or "bossy", the "fair" meme keeps showing up. They know that Americans are good people on the whole and want things to be "fair". The average Joe wants to be "fair" to his friends and neighbors and doesn't want to be seen as "unfair". The Leftists know this and play to that weakness.
The Leftists believe the United States is institutionally unfair, both internally and externally. But I want to focus on the "external unfairness" today.
Up until recently, the United States was the richest and most powerful country to ever grace the Earth. Because its people have the Liberty to be successful, they have a willingness to sacrifice to keep that ability to succeed. Whether fighting for a wage or fighting a war, you will find no smarter or fiercer people. A free people are always stronger than slaves. But the Leftists believe that freedom has exploited the rest of the world. That the US has more than a "fair share". The US must be brought down to the level of everyone else. Over the last 60 years, they have systematically dismantled everything that made the US great. Industry, energy, food supply, morals, traditions and institutions are all under attack to undermine that greatness and wealth. We no longer educate our children so that they can become part of the workforce, we give them Obamacare and Obamaphones and let them lie around and collect years of unemployment. The elites enrich themselves at the same time and demand your obedience.
What the elites and leftists do not understand is that they are making Americans cold and hungry with their policies. Nothing brings about revolution like "cold and hungry".
