    Surge Summary: America’s ship of state is shaping up to be the Titanic: evidence all around reveals the nation has hit a cultural and political iceberg and is dangerously taking on water. The only thing that can stop this is if Americans recognize the threat and speak up.

    We are the Titanic.

    First, let me say that part of what follows was not written by me, and I don’t know the author…but it hits home.

    Some things to think about…

    I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.  You can’t justify this insanity:

    • If a guy pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
    • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
    • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
    • It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
    • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
    • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.
    • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.
    • Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.
    • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the United States must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.
    • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.
    • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.
    • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. 
    • We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.
    • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
    • Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.
    • And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

    Nothing makes sense anymore – no values, no morals, and no civility. People are dying of a Chinese virus, but it’s racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.  We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong but killing unborn babies is OK!

    Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast.  Speak up!

    There is something new being pushed and that is a “seal” on the door or window of your business to tell the public that it’s safe to be in that building.  One might think it’s about the Covid19, but you’d be wrong…this is really about climate change and the “green new deal” and whatever that lunatic idea comprises.  If businesses can be set apart like this, can people be far behind, perhaps wearing the seal, or some other type of “identification” to set them apart.

    We refer to the federal government as the ship of state and, if that’s the case, aren’t we imitating the Titanic?  We’re sailing into waters that are either uncharted, or worse, the graveyard of ships that previously tried them…and sunk.  Does history really need to be repeated over and over again before we learn anything?  The current occupant of the White House, China Joe Biden, is doing his very best to sink this country.  The agenda seems to be that if it’s good for America he’s going to be against it.  If it favors China or any of our other potential competitors and enemies, he’s for it.  Could he, like Hussein before him, be sort of a Manchurian Candidate, put in place to destroy the United States?  I believe that to be the case.

    Let’s shift gears here, and talk about our armed forces.  My career was in the Navy and so whatever news about that service becomes my interest.  As an example…it’s been reported, many times, that this or that US Navy ship has X number of Covid19 cases on board.  One would expect the affected ones to be taken off the ship and sent to a medical facility.  All well and good, so far.  What happens to the ship when it’s undermanned?  The Chinese, to the best of my knowledge, don’t have any crewmen that have been said to have the virus.  Incidentally, it also seems there are no women in combat roles on Chinese ships.  That’s interesting.

    Parting shot: If we are to continue as the leading force for freedom in the world, we’re going to have to toughen up.  Social engineering and compulsive requirements to recognize things that we KNOW are wrong and ridiculous may be the ruination of us.  As an old man, I remember the country in which I grew up, and it was a hell of a lot different, and better, then the idiocy we have now in America.
