In the past, reins controlling dray horses were equipped with blinkers on the bridle so the horses could only look forward and not become distracted from their work. Blinkers also prevented the horses from being frightened and bolting if they perceived danger in their surroundings. The vanity of some dray men led them to keep their animals perfectly groomed and to beautifully decorate the blinkers their horses wore. But no matter how lovely, the horses were still dumb animals, blinkered by their owners.
People can also be placed in blinkers if they are not careful what it is they choose to believe and whom they choose to follow. Men’s blinkers are the fear, lies and beautiful baubles used to convince them to stay on the path desired by their “owners” so they will not be distracted by other voices or ideas. Thomas Jefferson said that men are not born with saddles for other men to ride. But now there are men who do believe they were born to ride.
Fear is often ginned up by the owners, the “riders,” to corral and blinker the unwary. So crisis after crisis — global warming, war on women, voting rights, racism, all the usual suspects — appear on cue daily as distractions to truth. As enslaved and blinkered men and women begin to understand the fact that they are being lied to, they are able to turn and see all about them and identify the dangers they face. They may find they have forgotten that it is the natural right of all people to “own” themselves.[pullquote]Men’s blinkers are the fear, lies and beautiful baubles used to convince them to stay on the path desired by their “owners” so they will not be distracted by other voices or ideas.[/pullquote]
Today the people most clearly wearing blinkers are those who are at or near the top of the destructive forces in motion in the nation. Their own peril clearly escapes their notice. Many of our not-so-distant ancestors knew what it was like to lose baby after baby to illnesses we no longer fear. It didn’t matter if you lived in a hovel or a palace. Tsar Peter the Great lost at least nine of his thirteen siblings, mostly to illness, while in his early youth and only three of his own fourteen children survived to adulthood.
When thousands of destitute and diseased illegal alien children are used as expendable pawns and deliberately dumped indiscriminately into our towns and cities, do the elite really believe that they, personally, will remain unaffected by the results? When the President’s own daughters are infected at their tony school by some third world contagion, who will he blame for their illness? Will Pelosi’s loving kindness continue if she or someone in her family becomes ill? Everyone, top to bottom, in the nation is facing the same perilous time from this regime’s careless actions.
A dear liberal friend came to visit me recently and commented in an offhand manner that we needed to cut our current population in half in order to save the world, and that doing so would not hurt her feelings at all. I was appalled at such a heartless sounding thought from my normally “kind” friend. I asked what she thought the population of the U.S. should be and she said “about what it was in 1940.” I asked her how she would enjoy living the way people did in 1940. She didn’t know what I was saying because she really believes that we will continue living our present life-style with no changes because “we know so much more now.” Talk about blinkered.
The greenies and and other activists fail to understand that our current state of technology and life style exist because we have the population to sustain them. If we were to cut our population so drastically, within two generations we’ll be severely restricted and maybe even back to hauling by dray horse again. Long distance air transportation will be limited, manufacturing and trade will drop, and technological advancement will retreat. Who will do the work that needs doing to keep the infrastructure in repair and services operating? What about such simple things as repaving and filling potholes? Who will do the mining and smelting, and build the tools? Even the people who plan to keep their wealth and power will lose many of the advantages of an advanced modern civilization.
Sandra Fluke is back in the news in the Hobby Lobby case and shows she is another fool wearing blinkers. My late brother, another blinded soul, told me that Rush Limbaugh was wrong to call Sandra a “slut” and that she was just a poor girl who was “trying to take control of her own body.” I asked, “So why doesn’t she?” He thought that’s what she was doing and that the US was the only country “that doesn’t supply health care and contraceptives for its own.” I finally gave up talking to him. “Taking control of one’s own body” used to mean growing up and doing just that, taking care of one’s self. I’m an adult and certainly don’t need anyone from the government in the bedroom with me (gag), nor in any other room for any reason.
Our culture of abortion, death and the exploitation of children will have to be answered for. Who is really claiming the children being brought into the US? The black market this administration has opened by deliberately bringing in these children is totally evil, and Obama doesn’t care since he has become the pimp for every perverted psychopath in the nation. We all need to remove our own blinkers and finally see him and his minions for what they are – traitors, one and all. Every time I vow to not speak so harshly against some of the members of this regime, they pull another hellish scheme out of their hat.[pullquote]The black market this administration has opened by deliberately bringing in these children is totally evil, and Obama doesn’t care since he has become the pimp for every perverted psychopath in the nation.[/pullquote]
Someone said that, “It’s surprising what you hear when you listen.” All of us who listen and hear are perplexed by the refusal of many citizens to listen when truth is spoken, or to remove their blinkers in order to see. We remove our own blinkers and then it seems we preach only to the choir. We hope more will join that choir. But what other recruitment avenues are open to us without adding more coercion to the coerced?
Our one recourse in charity at this moment is to tell the truth, openly and fearlessly, and let the judgment of God and the righteous of this nation rest on the heads of the traitors from both parties aiding this ruinous regime. Sometimes even speaking to or about the enemy takes great courage, but we still need to be of good cheer while we speak and pray. • (2566 views)
