They should have been listening to a few other tracks instead.
" He who has ears, let him hear."
Some people have too many years under their belts to get into things. I'm sincerely sorry for their predicament, and no blame attaches to those who cannot do what they would if they could. Praise a merciful God I'm not so old and brokedick as to be reduced to spectator status in what's coming.
But mark my words, it's coming. It's coming. That vague feling of unease you've been feeling, probably for months, has been telling you and warning you. The hairs standing up on the back of your neck tell you it's coming hard and fast. Like a runaway express freight train. Like a flaming meteor about to graduate to being a meteorite.
It doens't matter what we'd druther, it doesn't matter what we would have wished, we've gotten what we didn't want, what we didn't wish for, contrary to all common sense, logic, wisdom, and anything that's good and right and holy.
We won't be writing of these things any more. You're going to be living them.
For those still slow on the uptake, we'll probably be linking to some useful pdfs going forward.
"He who has ears, let him hear."
We expect we're already on a list or twelve, and won't be making a present of our darkest thoughts for future reference from here on out. The archives here are already a treasure trove of that.
There won't be any relocations coming from us. We were born here, and sooner or later, we'll die here, of our own free choice. Whether of old age, or in a pile of hot brass, it makes no nevermind, when it's time, it's time.
So if you want some historical observations, useful information, and some interesting choices of tunes, this is the place. At least for any time soon.
Trenchant and acerbic commentary? Not so much.
Free speech in this country, along with the rest of the Constitution, died yesterday. Because TPTB, and half the country, thinks that's a good idea, whose time has come.
We'll just see about that, won't we all?
