Bad Is Going To Happen!
By Rick Biesada
During a conversation with
my friend and radio co-host, Rosanna Pulido, she made a profound observation
as we discussed the sorry shape of our government.
Rosanna stated; "my father isn't very politically active, and he
pays little attention to current events, but he told me; you know, I can
feel that something "bad" is about to happen"...and when
he tells me that...I believe him.
Yes, that's true, I tried to explain to Rosanna a young lady nearly twenty
years my junior, that her father was speaking through wisdom; the wisdom
of experience, lifes greatest teacher.
Rosanna's parents had migrated here from Mexico,legally, over 50 years
ago. Mr. Pulido, a hard worker, became a painting contractor and followed
the American Dream, achieving a successful business and raising a fine
family in this home of the brave, land of the free, which has suddenly,
tragically, and surreptitiously, developed a gravity problem and is rapidly
free falling into obliteration.
Mr. Pulido, twenty years my senior, doesn't have to be a rocket scientist
to figure out that something is amiss with America, and we are drifting
off course, towards abashment.
That same street wisdom and experience compelled me to write in my book;
Angry White Male and
The Horse He Rode In On, about an impending 9 -11 style attack
on our country, and named Osama-bin- Laden as the perpetrator, nearly
two years before the fact. (P: 316)
History dictates the facts and if you're not a good student of history,
you will be condemned to repeat bad history.
For over one hundred years there has been a concerted effort to denigrate
and disparage our society by trying to negate our social contract with
the government; the United States Constitution; the glue that holds our
country together is being underminded by a band of fascist misfits, wrapped
in the funky garments of "do- goodism."
They have assailed our rule of law, and they have excoriated our liberty;
the same precious liberty that our founders lost treasure over, and shed
blood for, in order to guarantee a taste of freedom to their inheritors.
This noxious, toltalitarian odor, has been festering in the contaminated
halls of government for years, as we can trace back to the days when anti
American collaborators were starting to come out of the closet to try
and subvert our way of life.
President Woodrow Wilson drew up a covenant for The League Of Nations
in 1919, laying the nefarious seed for it's repugnant bastard child; the
odious United Nations.
Fortunately, at that period in time, our United States Senate was comprised
of patriotic leaders who rejected this treaty and prolonged the agony
of this abominal and deceptive idea until the year 1946; introducing "Chuckie,"
wrapped in the cloth of the United Nations - the New World Order Globalists
had arrived on the scene.
These older and bolder senators were prudent students of history, not
nurtured under the false doctrine of the maggoty draft dodging professors
of the 60's, pushing counter productive ideas, reeking of socialism.
They didn't want to be condemned to repeat bad history, such as the fall
of the Roman Empire, and our present declining state of despair, can be
traced directly to that historic event, through the similarities which
are now taking place through the oppressive efforts of our present government,
which cavalierly trades our sovereignty for a piece of the global pie.
The principles of The Roman Empire - justice, tolerance, and a desire
for peace, influenced countless generations. Roman cruelty and greed caused
great misery and the use of force brought hardship and death, but the
Roman qualities of duty, seriousness of purpose, and a sense of personal
worth, remain ideas for people everywhere.
A century of revolution gave Rome a relative peace under the Roman system
of law, which was a great contribution to Western Civilization and influenced
American Common Law.
Rome dominated the whole Mediterranean world but trouble at home followed
peace abroad. Two tribunes - NO! Not Skull & Bone Fraternity Brothers,
Bush - Kerry - Bush- Kerry - Bush -Kerry; ad-nauseam ... but the brothers,
Tiberius and Gaius Gracchus, tried to help the poor classes by starting
witless social programs and land reforms.
The Romans, a people blessed with a whole lot of attitude, resisted these
reforms and murdered the Gracchus brothers, cutting off their heads; illustrating
that those silly looking Islamic terrorists aren't the only people who
know how to wield a finely honed sword on a politicians, or judges head.
Augustus became the first Emperor of Rome. He ended heavy taxation and
replaced the corrupt, pandering public servants with principled and responsible
The reign of Augustus marked the begining of two hundred years of peace.
No country was strong enough to wage a major war on Rome or pose a serious
threat. Commerce flourished and the standard of living rose. Many of Romes
emperors were inferior men, but competent administrators gave the Roman
Government an automatic efficiency that carried it through the reigns
of both bad and good times.
Rome now developed a class of dependent, lackadaisical people, vunerable
to the threats of barbarian tribes looking for easy prey, in search of
their Roman Dream.
To meet this threat, the empire doubled the size of it's army and hired
mercenaries - or independent contractors to defend their plight. The increase
drain on men and resourses caused an economic crisis. The burden of supporting
a greatly increased army and civil service, taxed resources of the empire
to the breaking point.
Rome fell through the failings of men, as history points out; just as
America will fall...as Mr. Pulido can feel within his being. Experience
is the greatest teacher, and only a fool would repeat bad history.
With all due respect to Mr. Pulido's acknowledgement, I would submit that
"something bad," has already happened. We have elected socialist,
provocatuer jackasses, to public office, immune to gravity, and it will
only get worse, unless the people rise up against this burdensome tyranny
through their rightful roll as citizens of a free society, and abort our
present leadership, then replace them with a strong force of loyal, reform
minded Constitutionalists, who will formulate the proper ingredients for
the mortar to reconstruct the foundation of our government.
