    What on Earth America, stop fighting!

    What on Earth America, Stop Fighting!


    As we sit here, a war is being waged by the Progressive Left in our nation. Their clarion call is very much akin to the roars and ruckus of McCarthyism in the 1950s; The Russians, the Communists, they are to blame! We, as Americans, are now more divided than we were during the Civil Rights Era. We are now quickly moving towards the same divisiveness that led to the Civil war. In the New York Times article “The Rural-Urban Divide in America” it is laid out in the open. Rural America and Urban America have grown so far apart neither understands the other.

    In this new Post-election world we see an escalation of protests and riots like never before. As protests against our elected president, Donald J. Trump increase, we see an ever increasing divide. In the USA today we see this perverse and un-American display in full force “Not My President Day”. In just under two months we have seen an escalation to violence of unexpected proportions. One man being beaten bloody and unconscious during the UC Berkeley Riots.

    Picture from http://republicanrise.swillnews.com

    The day after the now infamous UC Berkley Riots a student was again brutally pummeled, for what reason you may ask? He was wearing a “Make America Great Again” Hat, a slogan of the Trump Campaign. Thankfully the two who assaulted the young student were apprehended and arrested. “Student wearing Trump hat beaten at UC Berkeley after protest”

    I do not know about you. But I have personally had enough of this behavior.  No matter what isle you reside politically. It is never acceptable to resort to this level of violence against your fellow man.  Especially if unprovoked. Yet here we sit, now experiencing assault after assault, verbal and physical. Being called Nazi’s, Fascists, being told we must be eradicated for our difference in values politically. I don’t know about you folks. But that sounds like the real Fascism to me.

    The important thing to take from all of these events is this. The United States of America is wounded, our nation is bleeding, and we must heal the wounds of division before they fester even more.  If our nation is to stand we must be united. A hulking beast is working in the shadows to dismantle everything great about this nation. Let us unite and show them what is truly great about America. Our ability to set aside diversity and unite as a single people, behind a single banner.  The American Way of life.

    Imagine for a moment that someone inherits a farm. Let's say that the farm has good topsoil, a good well, good breeding stock, good seed, and excellent farm equipment in good repair. Prior to passing into the control of the present owner the farm did a good business selling vegetables, meat, and dairy products to the local market, and it made a small profit.

    But let us suppose for a moment that the present owner of the farm doesn't understand farming, or isn't even really interested in learning. The present owner has no objection to standing around looking good, so he stays at the farm, standing in front of it, looking good to passers by.

    Of course, the bills still come in, so our farmer puts them on his credit card. When that bill comes due he uses another credit card, Then another. Pretty soon the interest payments alone are higher than his bills and the banks get nervous and call him. No problem. Our farmer sells the tractor, takes the money around to the various credit cards, the food store, the utilities, and pays off all his bills. Then he stands around in front of the farm looking good to passers-by, the lord of his domain.


    Long, old (1998), but damn good read. Creating divisiveness distracts from the real issues, that's all.

    Great post.  My only comment being that the Civil War was an issue of states rights vs. federal control.

    The Civil Rights movement had its basis in people suffering disparate impact on their lives solely based on the color of their skin.

    In my opinion both were divisions based on substantive issues.

    The, to me, hysteria of the left, is based on tantrum behavior due to the continued and accelerating loss of influence and power in all but a few liberal controlled, large urban areas and not much more.

    Is it dangerous?  Yes.  Ominous? Yes.  Legitimate? Not really.

    Is there a way to embed my own images? I had requested it to be done. This was my first article post on COP.
