The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.
Greetings ta ever one in western Illinois and all readers of "The Quill."
There seems ta be more and more hateful things being posted about those who voted fer President Trump.
Those folk aren't graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
Those people either have overlooked or have accepted the federal overreach that could be easily and frightenly found in our school's curriculum, health care, mandates on religious institutions, civil forfeiture, overtime pay, labor laws, DSHA, EPA, attacks on law enforcement, judicial overreach, takings of private property, and countless other areas.
Young folk come'n out of certain colleges and other influenced adults have become strong advocates of "Socialism" in it's various forms and were spurred on by the liberal press as well as other sources of misinformation.
We had fought wars against "Socialism" and its close partner "Communism".
Many lives were spent in those battles! How could they ferget so quickly.
They seem to embrace the double standard of ignore'n laws ya don't like if'n ya are a high government official, tax laws or enforcement against conservatives, gun trafficin' in Mexico ta the drug cartel, the pressure on Hobby Lobby ta force them ta participate in the killing of unborn babies, more people riding the tax revenue wagon than pull'n it, reinterpretation of our consttution and Al Gore's global warming hoax.
They embrace the Jane Fondas within our government and allowed radical anarchists, such as the weatherman, ta influence higher centers of influence and education, as well as government agencies.
Our local press brought in and continually brings in radical writings from the "Boston Globe" and other such off base writings.
These type folk seem ta be "triggered" because they are posting how "sick" they feel about the results of the Trump election.
They ask how did this happen that folk would elect the very man they strongly opposed.
Well, this is one man's opinion, Paul Genova, on how/why it happened!
How The "US" Was Created
You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.
You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.
You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.
You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.
You created "us" when you attacked our flag.
You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.
You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.
You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.
You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.
You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.
You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.
You created "us" the silent majority.
You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.
You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us"
"YOU created "US".
It really is just that simple.
I don't suppose this information will change the minds or stop the "triggered" thoughts of those that support the lose'n candidate. Nor will it stop the angered hateful postin's. But it does tell the other side of the story.
With a 1¢ hike in postage and high demand causing a 9¢ hike in gas, we may see other increases across the board as well. Farmers are hope'n and prayin' it's a hike in corn and soybean prices.
Remember, how far we've traveled since 1776.
The hard work our forefathers put into each day is what has made America great.
It reminds me of a quote I read from Dr Charles Mayo of the Mayo Clinic:
"I've never known a man who died of hard work, but many who die of worry."
Well, there ya have it then, some enterest'n thoughts that the boys and I will dwell on fer a spell.
Hopin' you're keep'n your supply of fire wood stocked as it seems we've still got a good spell before we see the sign of Spring and the Robin return'n to these parts.
Another good quote I read to ponder on is:
"If'n ya wants ta be rich, GIVE, If'n ya wants to be poor, GRAB, If'n ya wants abundance, SCATTER."
Remember, wherever ya are, whatever ya be a do'n "BE A GOOD ONE!'
Keep on Smile'n
Count yer many blessings
Catch ya later
