America, The Field Of Dreams
…As American as Mom and Apple Pie
Baseball season is in the air, even if they aren’t on the ball diamond screaming; swing-batter-batter-batter-swing-batter-batter-swing-batter-batter-swing!
At this stage of our pandemic-seclusions, even non-baseball fans miss the “All American Pastime,” baseball! We hear that national anthem and then the voice yells, “Play Ball!” Even a novice knows that the point of the game is to bring the runner “home.”
However, a virus hit at the most inopportune time but then there’s never a good time for any crisis. Death by any means is never welcome nor is it convenient.
The crisis that this pandemic has wrought on America has been a test of our strength and fortitude.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going! When the situation becomes difficult, the strong and determined will work harder to meet the challenge. This has always been the American Way!
Americans will always rise to the challenges we face, whether on a personal level, community or now, as all 50 states face this invisible enemy; the coronavirus.
President Trump, in this pandemic time, a world crisis, put together a task force, led by VP Mike Pence. The President has been hands on and led the force in the direction that has been astonishingly successful.
We’ve watched as our President brought together the good old American private work sector to meet the great needs of this nation and even enough to share abroad too. Isn’t that amazing!!!
That’s what heroes do, they find the way out of the darkness and bring all safely back home. Bring Americans home; back to their normal lives, jobs, family, vacations, baseball, concerts, shopping, walks in the park; whatever your normal might be.
Then you have those, who are more interested in the moment; seizing that moment and taking advantage of the weak and the fearful. As James Clyburn put it, “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” Governor Cuomo and others have let us know, “Life will never be as it was; the norm is gone forever.” (Beth’s paraphrase)
Unfortunately, there are those who are weak and easily manipulated. There are also those who are fooled for a time but then their eyes are opened, and opened wide! Americans are not fooled for long, especially when their livelihoods and families are in danger.
We, as a people, were already a nation divided by design of a particular group of people; Democrats want for power and governing change. These same people are now attempting to seize the moment to manipulate and abuse a situation and a people who are in a particularly vulnerable spot.
James Earl Jones, gave a memorable speech in the movie, “Field of Dreams.”
America is that Field of Dreams! We don’t have to give up the old norm, we need to get back to it! America is the “constant” the world looks to, and it always will be.
I’ve revised the speech to drive home the narrative that America is YOU. I changed the name Ray to Sam for our Uncle Sam in the USA!
“If you build it, he will come (home).”
People will come home, Sam.
They’ll come to American Liberty for reasons they can’t even fathom.
They’ll turn into their driveways, knowing for sure they are at last home again!
They’ll arrive at their own door, as innocent as children, longing for the past, with a warm comfort in their spirit.
Of course, they won’t mind if you come on over, they’ll offer you a refreshment and a chair to relax.
They’ll once again walk in their neighborhoods with their short sleeves on, it’s a perfect afternoon. They view familiar scenery somewhere along the paths and benches where they walked and sat when they were children. They’ll take this moment in time to sit on that bench and watch their friends and neighbors leisurely passing by. A nod of the head or the wave of a hand bids hello as well as goodbye.
They remember their heroes of days gone by. It’ll be as if they’d dipped themselves in magic waters.
The memories will be so thick, they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come home Sam.
The one constant through all the years Sam, has been strength and liberty of Americans. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers and time has moved too quickly.
It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again, but American strength and liberty is forever marked in time.
This street, this land, this nation, those stars and stripes, and yes, even that game called baseball is a part of our past, Sam.
It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be, most definitely will be again.
Oh, people will come home, Sam. People will most definitely come home.
You see Sam, politicians did not build this nation nor will they rebuild it now. It will be the people, those people you see; many-many people with talents and abilities that always see beyond the years and get the work done with their own blood, sweat and tears.
America will come home Sam; we the people will rebuild this nation and we will all most definitely come home. ©
An American Perspective
PANDEMIC HAS PANORAMIC VIEW
by Beth Ann – April 22, 2020
As America obeys the pandemic orders to “stay home,” we watch as our country struggles to find equipment and medicines to treat our own sick and dying. The view should be a panoramic scene of what exactly has happened.
Relying on an enemy and trusting a known liar, is never a wise thing to do. The medicines, supplies and equipment we need to take care of Americans is not here but over there, in the enemy’s camp!
America has been literally sleeping with the devil. Yes, China is the devil, but Congress made the bed for Americans to lie in, and then they coerced and prostituted our businesses to the foreign communist country of China. We might wonder why; it’s always for money!
The American version of Antionette was seen recently in the arrogance of Nancy Pelosi’s attitude of ‘Let them eat cake; I have two massive refrigerator freezers full of my favorite, very expensive chocolate ice cream!’ As Americans are told we can not congregate with our church families or our families for Easter, Nantionette Pelosi is proud and giddy before the camera as she shows off her basket full of chocolates and goodies. This Easter many Americans were stuck in foodbank lines but Nantionette Pelosi had no changes in her routine of luxury.
Fear not America; Congress will save you! You need more money? No Problem! We can print it easy-peezy! Not only will we make more paper IOUs (fiat dollars) available we’ll pass a HUGE pork-filled bill to tell you how much you can have and how much more our friends can have.
Earlier this week I shared a quote from 1957, “I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the past forty-nine years, they would move on Washington. It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States.” Senator George Malone of Nevada (rep).
Congress hasn’t corrected their ways; they have continued their march toward a socialist America dependent on them.
Some might say today that can’t be true… Or explain that you just don’t understand we can’t do without them; we need Congress to FIX things to take care of us… to legislate away injustices. Helloooooooo!
“The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedients and by part… the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke
The Good People of America have done nothing so the greedy people of Congress have taken advantage and nibbled away your liberty and your independence; although their nibbles have been more like huge gargantuan bites!
I was happy to see rallies across the nation however I must say, until we literally take the bull by the Congress horn and kick ‘em out and demand our Republic back, there will be little change. Politics as usual, will continue to be the “old-norm” of America. But the new norm, will be more Americans out of work and dependent on government programs, as well as on foreign governments to survive.
Our economy isn’t on the brink of collapse, it’s teetering on the edge of a cliff, looking down a huge sink hole. The U.S. debt is unsustainable and yet Congress continues to spend!
“When you’re standing on the edge of a cliff, one step forward is not progress.”
America; Americans are on that edge! We need to turn around and walk the other way. Not away from responsibility but toward the very source of the problems: Congress!
The fiat dollars – like congress has no standards!
The US economy is bankrupt
The jobs gone south, east, any direction but here!
Illegal immigrants are invading our land
The U.S. economy is in depression
The reliance on foreign countries for VITAL products
Exorbitant taxes on the people are robbing us of Life and Liberty, and making the Pursuit of Happiness, property and prosperity fade from the view of the average middle class American
Who made the decisions that took us down this path of destruction? CONGRESS! The enemy, whom we elected and continue to reelect.
Governor Cuomo spoke the truth when he stated, “We’re not going to make America great again; it was never that great.” The intentions of the democrats (and also, unfortunately, the globalists sitting on the right) are not to improve this nation but to continue to use you, and profit from their decisions and legislate against the American people. This is why they wish to hide and distort our nation’s history and convince you that you’re a victim.
Victims we are! Victims of the abuses of government perpetrated and led by our very own CONGRESS!
The pandemic has brought a panoramic view of just exactly how badly and recklessly Congress legislates. Their dastardly bills and acts and treaties have come home to roost.
Congress and other federal workers will not lose a paycheck, their insurance and retirements are secure, but the American people suffer because of the lack of accountability and the poor job performance of CONGRESS!
No, the pandemic panoramic picture isn’t pretty, but it’s certainly telling!
