The calm before the storm

"Enough is enough! That is the cry from France right now. That is also the cry from other Euro areas who are realizing their countries are starting to slip away. Like I said - we will be paying attention like never before. We are watching. We are listening. We are ready."

After a very emotional time of remembrance for our 41st President, as well as people bustling around getting ready for a robust holiday season, there is still a sense of foreboding in the air. It is similar to that brief period before a violent thunderstorm strikes, and everything becomes eerily quiet. We are truly living in the calm before the storm.
Come on Bird! Why so dour? You just had a birthday, and your house is filled with the sounds and smells of holiday joy. True. But truth is truth. And I think the first wave of the storm will appear on December 21st. That is when the latest CR runs out of money. That is when Donald Trump will shut down the government.
How do I know? Ms. Nancy was on the news yesterday stating emphatically that not a dime will go towards the wall. Why? Her words - it is amoral. Huh? Killing babies is amoral Nancy, but building a wall to keep out drugs, human trafficking, illegals, gangs - is not amoral. Without a wall to help stem the tide, we will lose the battle at the border. And that is when the citizens and patriots will step in to do what the government cannot, nor will not, do.
Then shortly after the New Year, we get our new Congress. Replete with socialists, progressives, statists, and just plain weirdos. Wait - are you talking about our state House or the United States Congress? Both. Then when everything the President needs to do comes to a standstill in the House, the citizens will not tolerate it. If Congress tries to impeach the President, or any justice on the Supreme Court, the citizens and patriots will stop it. Should anyone doubt the strength of the people, they need to look no further than Paris.
I suppose it is Antifa which taught us the lesson we needed to learn. Take to the streets. However, unlike Antifa, the citizens and patriots will not cover their faces, nor hide in the shadows. This is our country. This is our state. We will be paying attention like never before.
If the statists try to tax us into the poor house, we will take to the streets. If the progressives try to take away our guns or sully the Second Amendment, we will take to the streets. If the the socialists try to rewrite our Constitution or change the Bill of Rights, we will not only take to the streets, but we will be all up in their business.
Enough is enough! That is the cry from France right now. That is also the cry from other Euro areas who are realizing their countries are starting to slip away. Like I said - we will be paying attention like never before. We are watching. We are listening. We are ready.
