Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
May everyone have a joyous and happy Thanksgiving. We still have things to be thankful for even if the future maybe bleak in some ways.
Take heart my friends this thing isn't over yet by a long shot.
It has been arguably reported that Ben Franklin once made a quote I have seen oft repeated around the web.
"Democracy is three wolves and two sheep voting on whats for dinner".
A very wise observation in many ways, especially when the vote is simple mob rule and without a Constitution to limit it.
I however believe a different analogy of the current mob rule democracy problem is in order. I would sum up today's situation as:
57 million coyotes and 56 million Mountain Lions are going to vote on whats for dinner and the coyotes are gonna go hungry.
I kinda like the Mountain Lion motif as symbol for the new struggle of Independence. Others may disagree but I believe in many ways it fits the fierce independent nature of today's rural population trying to keep as much of our habitat as possible but that is for tomorrow. As of today.
We give thanks for what we still have.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
