Christmas Dinner

Via Diana

Christmas dinner during the Great Depression - turnips and cabbage.
My mother told me there was very little meat so they raised what they could and often ate fried onion sandwiches for dinner. It's strange how people that had so little were so grateful for every little thing they had and here we are today with so much and many of us appreciate nothing. We live in such a throw away society, if something is of no further use to us it's trash. So much has changed, and continues to change, even in my lifetime it makes your head swim when you think about it. I may be remembering things differently than how they actually were but when I think of how much kinder, accountable, responsible and grateful people used to be, it makes me wonder if all of the things we have now are really making our lives better.

I graduated from High School in 1966, and all of my course studies had been academic. My main interests besides girls were Marching Band and Debate. Having won the Kansas State Oratorical championship in 1964 with a speech topic "Optimism Formula For Freedom", my intentions were to become a lawyer. I was aware of the Viet Nam war, especially when it began to heat up in 1965. Little did I know that before the next year was over that I would take a journey straight into the pits of hell and see the heaviest fighting our country has ever experienced.

After high school, I enrolled in junior college. I paid my own way by also working at night part time for the H. D. Lee Company that made clothing. When I quit college to join the Marines my professors and especially the office tried to get me to reconsider by saying "But your grades are well above average. You will never have to go!" My reply, and my reason for joining, was simply "those guys fighting and dying over there are no more deserving to be there than me, and I can't feel right letting them do something I would not."

The problem I see with this existential 21st Century (world) War is that there are a lot of guns being brought to a cyber/pharmaceutical fight. No doubt there will be need of the weaponry, but we’re in the battlefield preparation stage and whole swaths of fighters are being swept away before the first shot is fired.

They know they can’t win a shooting war, so, like Sun Tzu, they’re building the battlefield they want to fight on, which isn’t digging trenches, it’s neutering huge sections of the population, literally, and using the “be reasonable” argument to keep the enemy sitting on their porches waiting for the societal approval to go ahead. The fact that they already see the typical American as the enemy is a warning sign in itself.

National Border Patrol Council Head: If Biden Wasn’t President, I’d ‘Arrest Him For Aiding And Abetting’

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, speaks as he introduces U.S. President Donald Trump, not pictured, during a meeting with the National Border Patrol Council in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, Feb. 14, 2020. Attorney General William Barr has ordered a review of the prosecution against Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, adding to a series of interventions this week in politically sensitive cases tied to the president.

Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), told Fox News during an interview on Thursday night that if President Joe Biden were not president, he would arrest Biden for “aiding and abetting.”

“I’ve been patrolling the borders since Clinton was the president and I can tell you personally, that the policies that have been in place were by far the best under President Trump and President Biden completely and totally dismantled all of those policies,” Judd told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “And when you look at our Border Patrol agents, when they are sent down there to that job, and by the way, Mayorkas was down on the border, and he saw the horses, he knew the horses were out there, and now he’s making, doing a 180.”
