Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

I saw the following letter in the paper yesterday:

Dear Diary:

At the American Museum of Natural History, I was charmed to see how even the youngest visitors were happy to cooperate with new, tightened procedures at security checkpoints.

Waiting in line to be cleared at the pavilion entrance was a very serious young lady of perhaps 3 or 4 years old, all dressed up for a day of visiting the butterflies and the dinosaurs.

Accompanied by her nanny, she carried by its chain a shiny little pocketbook about the size of a playing card.

When her turn came, she stepped up and solemnly handed this to the security guard. He hesitated, and then bent down and opened the tiny bag. Making a show of searching it, he handed it back, thanked her and told her she was cleared to come in.

The sight of her, walking off down the corridor with the pocketbook in her hand, put a very human face on how quickly we [Americans] adapt and move on in our new world.

Probably the chain not the pocket book that was the weapon?

In travel to Jerusalem, often such inconvenience is a way of Life. Here in America, I disagree that we are so easily assimilated as we tend not to tolerate such as easily as one believes as most polls find We folks here on “Main Street USA” indeed at wit’s end noting the dastardly ways of those We have “entrusted” to serve the majority and while we are somewhat tolerant of such inconvenience, the blantant and – intentional – failure of this Goldman Sachs WH administration and a Congress so riddled with the same spend and spend mentality….”change” is coming !

Far removed in their own personal agenda will result soon in an overwhelming whipping of the god ‘ol beltway fellas from the Chicago street organizer (Barry) who is vacationing again while kids are sleeping in cars with their parents and Comgressmen who are so out of touch w/constituents that finally fellow citizens are truly becoming enlightened as to the charade being played out and the calamity and jeopardy to We here on “Main Street USA” that while all the Republican candidates are less than appealing, voters will “change” this precipitous path and We will finally be able to turn the Union Jack right side up for the shoals and rocks we have already smashed into, yet the core of this Judeo-Christian nation is one which does not assimilate as easily as perceived by these – beltway bandits!

God is witness to all! In God We Trust.

Pls note the breaking news of this WH nw seeking a hugh increase in spending – I call this treason and nothing less and a call for some American tl step forward to make citizen arrest of the WH and Congress demanding that they resign and demanding term limits for every elected position from local to national elected post. Strict term limits!
