Posted on 08/26/2021 4:55:30 AM PDT by Kaslin
For nearly two years, Americans have engaged in a great woke experiment of cannibalizing themselves. American civilization has invested massive labor, capital and time in an effort to constantly flagellate itself for not being perfect.
Yet America's resilience and its resources are not infinite. We are now beginning to see the consequences of what happens when premodern tribalism absorbs Americans.
There are repercussions when ideology governs policy or when we take for granted the basics of life to pursue its trappings.
Who cares whether the blow-dried media is woke if it cannot report the truth and keep politicians honest? Once journalists became progressive poodles rather than the watchdogs of government, the Biden administration had no fear of audit. It took for granted that its disasters, from the southern border to the chaos in Afghanistan, would be excused by toady reporters.
Government-engineered "equity" has replaced the goal of equal opportunity. But such utopianism births popular anger when personal initiative, excellence and performance do not count as much as virtue-signaling groupthink.
The United States just suffered a terrible and shameful defeat in Afghanistan. The catastrophe reminds us that the Biden administration had its politicized military and bureaucracy mostly fixate on diversity, equity and inclusion, and to root out supposed internal enemies.
So, our top brass and functionaries talked of redirecting the military to every possible woke agenda -- except ensuring military superiority and the safety of the United States.

The stark truth is that there is not a single institution in America to which patriotic conservatives can look for salvation. Not one.
If the worst of my fears are confirmed that we are shortly to be overwhelmed by an economic disaster the whole of the country will then clearly see that the country does not "work."
In that time of crunch there will be no institution that can defend us or defend our constitutional democracy against the inevitable public outcry for a strongman, or at least a strong state, to "save" us.
Even the “Church” has abandon us. When the collapse comes, it will be anarchy, destruction and gnashing of teeth. Never forget, the media (MSNBC, CNN) were enablers in the destruction of America. Those traitors need to be the first to face justice.
They will, they have always been at the bottom of the mass graves when they cease being useful idiots to their totalitarian masters.
There are shortages everywhere, nobody wants to do anything. Just printing money.
People survive even in Cuba (spending valuable time socializing in queues) or North Korea.
But as for the American experiment, it committed suicide. I do not believe it could be retrieved?!
Just get used to standing in lines. Walking everywhere is healthy, and your silhouette will be slimmer. No need for weight loos treatment, socialism is the best treatment for obesity!
Hasn’t really worked for some time.
uniparty CCP-paid Congress, the treasonous Courts, and
the CCP-infiltrated “intelligence agencies” and their
controlled MSM cannot be trusted. never could.
POTUS saw that after the alert at the
ArmyNavy game post-election
and initiated the plan to save the Republic.
Given what everyone now sees WW,
it was MORE than a good thing.
In my industry we’re watching the end coming and there is nothing we can do about it seemingly. 3M can’t get certain raw materials and that’s that. I’m supplied to December…If this is happening elsewhere…
Requires a moral and responsible population. Both of those values have been mocked relentlessly for decades to where that’s not longer the vast majority of us.
I know for a fact financial services “Independent contractors” (making 50-100k) have qualified for PPP loans in 5 figures, and the loans were “forgiven”. Tells me we gave away Billions to undeserving people. “we” as in “we” taxpayers. Yes, this is just one reason we need to STOP this free money giveaway stuff.
Just one Swan: the dollar loses its reserve currency status, the Fed loses its capacity to borrow ad infinitum, the government breaks.
America stopped working when the last of the Tea Parties was seen.
You can plot it like a stop watch or a calendar.
Many want America. Few want to work hard for it.
It does not.
The grasshoppers have come.
Does much worse than anger. It ends up destroying the country from within. It's nothing short of committing suicide.
Maybe that's why these two guys are smiling...
from where do they come?
Oddly no one thought that a pertinent question except me. They said what difference does it make? The answer would give us an idea of when we could expect a change. I think IQs are slipping.
It takes weeks and weeks to get doors, washer and dryers!
The country is short labor, highest inflation in years, southern border nonexistent, after 20 years of the War on Terror Biden unilaterally surrendered to the Taliban, Al Qeada and ISIS-K, we no longer are energy independent. Need I go on?
There is a big problem with trash pickup here.
The company says it’s mostly because of truck parts unavailability.
America works but the Democrat party/media/big tech are so corrupt they’re interfering. The death of newspapers and network news is helping.
