Paladin’s AMERICAN GOMORRAH ™ “A Most Honest Mind” Edition

Casting a jaundiced eye about the horror engulfing the RepublicPaladin’s brain burst with expletives, oaths, and curses at the legions of Quislings, toadies and Wormtongues now engaged in destroying the Almighty’s greatest gift to an uncivilized world. Us. The United States of America.

Sure, others lived through dark times, we’re not alone—but it didn’t seem to matter a whit.  Only the next turn of the screw certifying the steal from Pennsylvania or Michigan.  Lurid media Goebbels’ buggering a supine public—nonstop brain fever and teeth gnashing

Until . . .  until – he cracked a little book of wit and wisdom.

The Quotable Churchill. A lovely Christmas/Hannukah gift from Mrs. Paladin this year.  Knowing a finer mind than Paladin’s so close at hand and easily accessible Paladin’s trembling fingers dipped in here and there and the greatest mind of this or any other generation jumped out at him and into his brain. Words and thoughts so obviously true to everything today:

This treasury paper, by its very length, defends itself from being read.

Who can’t see the 6000 page pork abortion of a “stimulus” bill? Little to no stimulus, yet a massive bill.

If you’re going through hell, keep going.

Remember that no matter what happens in January.

We are still masters of our fate. We are still captains of our souls.

Some may try to rob your future, some will succeed, some will fail, most won’t know you’re alive. Your soul cannot be stolen, but you can pawn it away for pennies on the dollar. Many do.

We can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the other possibilities.

Amen.

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

No Fraud. Okay there was fraud, but not enough to change outcomes. Okay, there were enough votes stolen, but it’s time to move on for the sake of stability.

A small lie needs a bodyguard of bigger lies to protect it.

Fake News. Russia! Russia! Russia. I never had sex with that woman.  I never inhaled. I see no evidence of Voter Fraud. The reality of Male and Female Identity are mere social constructs. Abraham Lincoln was an oppressor. Only Black Lives Matter. War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. Big Brother is Watching You.

All of the great empires of the future will be empires of the mind.

And in the case of Zucker, Dorky and rest of the tech tyrants they will seize the means of perception in order to make a search engine, a mere algorithm your God.

You have enemies?  Good. That means you stood up for something in your life.

Even as they seek to make you bow, seek to make you obey, they have not the power to enforce, only we have the power to surrender.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Happy New Year VGirl readers and writers, when courage counts, you’ll find a VGirl.  Of that you can be sure.

    I wonder what if 9/11 happened now how our country would react. I don’t see us oozing patriotism like back them. I see people in this country openly cheering, a media supporting them and alleged pundits blaming us for it.

    Thank you for the quotes and how well they describe what is going on in our country.. the big question is whether we can weather the storm or drown in a flood that brings the arc Noah to mind.. perhaps it is time to wipe the slate clean and start over.. or maybe we can skip the floods and start seeing ourselves as individuals who are responsible for what goes on our lives…

    As a Brit I regularly partake of the wit and wisdom of Churchill to maintain at least some perspective on the current madness.

    I worry at times, because on reflection almost everything I say is either a Churchill, Heinlein, G. K. Chesterton, Mencken or (don’t judge me) Pratchett quote (and the balance seems, incongruously, to be eighties song lyrics).

    Why oh why does everything I ever want to say turn out to have already been said by someone else, only better?

    (As an aside, I once corresponded with a young lady. She finally came out and stated that I sounded quite like Sir Terry Pratchett. I was, at first, almost ecstatic, imagining being compared to that great writer,

    Then I began to wonder. Was she intimating I sounded witty, erudite and insightful or … like I had Alzheimer’s. Sigh!)

      “The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.” Guilty.
