Posted on 09/28/2021 2:31:59 PM PDT by rebuildus
This morning I saw a dog in my neighborhood barking. The trash truck had pulled up. A young worker stepped down from the truck with several dog treats in his hand. He tossed the treats onto the pavement inside the nearby yard, and the dog immediately stopped barking and started gobbling up the treats.
By the time the dog finished snacking, the guy and the trash truck were gone. They have this thing down to a science!
The incident brought to mind a sadly, near-universal truth–a “dog” will stop barking for a treat.”
This simple principle explains how we’ve ended up in the mess we’re in.
For instance, the vast majority of doctors have clearly sold out to the financial incentives and dis-incentives relative to COVID. It seems that nurses have been much more willing than doctors to tell the truth about COVID and the experimental, dangerous vaccines, and I suspect it’s due to doctors being paid more than nurses, and needing more schooling. They simply have more invested, and more to lose.
There are now over 15,000 DEATHS associated with COVID vaccines, and informed people realize that this number (documented in the VAERS system) is likely grossly underreported. But the Hippocratic Oath to first “Do no harm” has become antiquated in this “enlightened” time.
But it’s not just the doctors.
Americans in general have become addicted to their “treats.” These treats are sometimes edible. The sugar epidemic in this country, for instance, is so out of control and has been going on so long, that it seems to have become a permanent fixture.
Diabetes cases are exploding among young people (I wonder why 🙂 )
Sugar and the immune system You’d think that Joe and the other government / media medical “experts” would be warning us more about the health dangers of excess sugar consumption in the age of COVID. But no, they’d much rather see a nation of grossly overweight and unhealthy people be sure to get that jab, and all the boosters to follow.
It’s criminal what these “experts” say and do to coerce us to do in the name of “health,” and in some ways it’s worse what they DON’T say that could save so many lives.
They don’t want us to be healthy, pure and simple. If they did, they’d talk and act differently. What incentive do they have to want a healthy population? Healthy populations don’t want or need to inject foreign matter into their bodies, do they?
Other “treats” Americans have become fat, sluggish, and satisfied from the onslaught of sugar, manipulated fats, and other excesses. But there are other “treats” that have blunted our collective will to stand up for freedom. One is the debt. This article says that 42% of Americans have racked up more credit card debt since COVID-19 began.
Think of all the treats Americans have treated themselves to. And think about the financial pressure they’re now under, at a time when we are being threatened with the loss of a job if we don’t take their jab. The pressure is much greater for someone in debt vs. someone who has no debt or better still, has no debt plus sound investments.
Prestige is a treat too. Certainly the professional class is well aware of this. Doctors, lawyers, and other professionals enjoy their social status, and the thought of losing it would be quite a blow.
“I have food to eat that you know nothing about” The decline of Christianity in America is connected to this addiction to treats. The reason is simple: True religion “fills us up on the inside.” In John 4:32 Jesus says, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”
The person with spiritual conflict often eats in an attempt to fill the void inside. Trust me, I’ve been one of them. In today’s world, as the knowledge of true religion wanes, that void is growing larger and larger.
So in rejecting God, we still need something to fill us up, and hence the need of treats.
In our generally unrepentant state, we are slaves of treats, and nothing will prevent that state, short of a return to our Father.
Like the dog, we can attend to the task at hand (keeping the “salt” in our earth–maintaining the good that is in our nation–until the treat is offered. Then–with no power inside us to stop our fall–we will succumb to the treat.
Without God we are essentially animals–much worse, actually. Therefore, we are obliged to fall to our treats, until enough pain causes us to seek relief and transcendence. I hope that day comes to us Americans, and to others worldwide who seek a better life.
The ball is on our court, or perhaps I should say, the treat is on the ground while our duty lies in front of us. Which way will we look?

Joe Biden is not house-trained.
Does this work for ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’? Guess his new wife is not satisfying his needs, thus he’s out banging on doors.
Another, old way of putting it is, a steak thrown to the watchdog of the mind
For 20 years in the Water Business and too many of them Reading Meters I always kept a box of Treats in the truck and a few in My pocket. After a couple of Readings most of the Dog’s on My Route were sitting at the fence, tails wagging and almost smiling when I pulled up to Read. Even the “really mean and big ones.”
Mind over matter...
A dog will return to his vomit
That system works for most dogs—for not for chows chows.
They will ignore the treat and growl at the stranger.
Rumor is they guarded the loot of the Mongolian Hordes back in the old days...
It’s not so great with Dobermans, either.
They’ll ignore the ones you toss in the yard, hoping you’ll come close to the fence and ‘hand feed’ them.
I had a couple of “scary“ dogs years ago. One day I opened the food to get the mail, and they bolted past me. They ran half a block after the mail lady, It was a race to see who could get there first, and sit for a treat. Then they trotted back to the house.
My dogs won’t take treats from anyone but me.
Precisely what those stimulus checks to the serfs was all about...
Look how the serfs have rolled over and played dead ever since...
Is that code?
What? It says “food” where it should say “door,” Aside from that it’s pretty straight forward.
Back in the ‘40s I would walk with our mailman, Harry, on his route some weekends. He always had dog treats as well. Time tested. Fond memories.
We have owned two Chows.
They were great Watch Dogs.
Otherwise they excelled in indifference.
It’s like we had two 90 Pound Cats who wouldn’t give us the time of day.
I suspected it was an amusing story that’s why I was trying hard to figure it out. Thanks for the clarification. My brain is just not working too well I guess.
too bad the chicken littles that are running around screeching “we’re all gonna die” won’t stop barking after getting their treatment...
That’s when the First Class complementary Double Cheese Burger comes in to play.
They just play to game.
