that tyranny is a real issue. In the past, one could turn a bleatingly blind eye to corruption because it was so uncommon and so non-threatening. Obama has changed all that, and the IRS corruption scandal is only the latest and greatest example. Tyranny is real. To think otherwise is to live in a fantasy land.
We have states talking about splitting. There is talk (perhaps “crazy”) about the country splitting. The divide between left and right has never been wider or more acrimonious. Obama seems to have no regard for personal freedoms or civil rights. It’s time for people to wake up and smell the coffee! There will have to be some sort of split if things keep going the way they are. I don’t know what that will look like.
Yes, I’m a geek, but there is wisdom indeed in this quote from Tolkien:
Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us…
