Goodbye Yellowbrick Road

Elton John released that album in 1973, selling more than 30 million copies. What is the Yellow Brick Road, anyway? Supposedly, it’s the road to prosperity and contentment. Remember the Yellow Brick Road in the Wizard of Oz?

The road to prosperity and contentment in the US is quickly becoming overgrown with weeds and briars. We are on the verge of loosing our independence. The independence that our grandfathers fought for in all the wars. These freedoms are being taken from us and we sit by watching, doing nothing.!

It’s For Your Own Good

When you hear these words, take notice. During the holocaust, the Germans convinced people to put their families on trains FOR THEIR OWN GOOD, so they could be hauled off to a “safe place”. We all know what happened afterward. It appears now that history is beginning to repeat itself.

Look at what’s taking place right here in the United States. We the people have proven just how quickly the government can take over ALL aspects of our lives. We did as they wished out of fear and scare tactics. Many of these scare tactics were untrue and were magnified and sensaltionalized by good old CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC so that we would “get on that train” for our own safety. Remember, “It’s for your own good!” Shut down your businesses and we will give you enough money to live on. Stay out of the church buildings and if you must worship, we will give you permission to sit in your cars and listen to the preacher.

Who’s Shutting Us Down?

It’s certainly not the President. The Governors have issued the orders to shut down businesses. Look at which states were the first to begin to re-open. Sure as heck wasn’t the states with a Democrat governor.

Instead of being alarmed at what’s going on, we get applause. Some states have taken measures to CRIMINALIZE any failure to comply with their orders. “It’s for your own good!” Remember that. How long would some people like for us to stay out of work and out of church, unable to go about our normal routines? Bill Gates would like for that to extend to at least 10 months, “for our own good”. This is what it’s like living under a communist regime, and we applaud it.

Mothers are being arrested for taking children to the park. Handcuffed and stuffed into a patrol car like a common criminal. Where do the criminals go? They get turned loose back on the streets. Look at how many Governor Andy let go home and didn’t have the courtesy to notify the victims. Were the abortion clinics shut down? Guess. You know the answer to that one.

Pastors are being arrested for daring to hold church services, and we applaud that. A father is handcuffed and arrested in an empty park for playing softball with his 6-year-old daughter and refusing to turn over his ID, and we applaud that.

Farmers are being told to stop farming and sell their herds, and we don’t seem to understand what that means.

People are scolded day after day for not comlying with government edicts, and if anyone dare to question what’s happening, we get a lecture about how we are a danger to society and we just don’t care about people dying. Videos and informational articles are taken off Facebook and Youtube, because they voice a different opinion. Our free speech doesn’t count in times like these. We might actually get someone to use their brain and think about what’s going on.

We’ve gotten things so mixed up that we actually begin to believe that shoving this nation to it’s knees and putting everyone on government assistance is much better than getting a virus and letting our immune systems do what they were intended to do.

People, I have some sobering news for a few of you. Humans die. They die by the thousands everyday of some cause. I’m not advocating complete ignorance of this so called virus. Sure we can take precautions to see that our elderly and young don’t come in contact with it. However, I don’t believe and you can never make me believe, that crippling our economy and putting millions out of work and causing shortages of food is worth the fallout.

At what point do we stop this nonsense? At what point do we question why the news media keeps defending the Communists? At what point do we begin to realize what country brought us this mess and why they would rejoice at our misfortune?

The television news media has the minds of Americans right where they want it. Glued to the sets, gasping at what is happening. Ready to do their bidding, “for our own good.”
