It's Easy To Get Discouraged


It’s So Easy To Get Discouraged

Sponsored by CrisDental Family Dentistry Eugene/Oregon


Read the headlines: COVID restrictions may be coming back.

We have one former president whose mugshot is littering the internet and another where evidence is mounting, showing he took millions in a twisted plan with his crazy son.


A young man named Oliver Anthony creates a song that hits a chord with many of us and critics bash the guy for telling the truth. Christian magazines belittle him and the elite lash out like the guy is threatening their power….because he is.


Our left leaning political leaders try to tell us the economy is fine yet when we balance our check books and look over our 401k, it’s anything but fine. Most Americans are borrowing money with credit cards to stay afloat.


I’m a guy who believes in a creator who knows exactly what he’s doing. Our culture is terrible at patience and longs for a quick fix. I think this is the former and we are learning a couple of lessons about apathy, involvement and demanding better from those we choose to lead us.


We were never meant to have kings or queens. But long ago people stopped trusting God and accepted putting a human in charge, so here we sit a consequence of our lack of trust.


Why am I encouraged rather than discouraged? For the first time in years I see people standing up. I see people like you and me gravitating to goodness, kindness (that ones harder to see) and differentiating between good and evil. We’re so tired we are standing up despite the pressure to be silent and get along. I’m done getting along and so are you.


We want more freedom and less control, something we learned from our government and cultures overreaction to a virus.


I think the test is still on. The controllers aren’t satisfied, there’s an election ahead and mandates and restrictions are being more than whispered, they are happening already. We scratch our heads and think “do they really think we’re gonna fall for this again?” But many will and they know that.


So what will you do?

We saw the effectiveness of boycotts over the trans issues.

People had enough and hit corporate America in the pocketbook and won.

We can do the same thing with the next thing that comes up and you know what that is.

If airlines and hospitals want to implement certain measures, as a mass, we can refuse. They need us more than we need them.

If businesses want to discriminate against us based on our facts and beliefs, they don’t deserve our money.

Mass movements work, we saw what it did to Target, Bud Light and Disney and it can work all over again.


We don’t have to do this again.

And if you are someone who believes in the restrictions, by all means, you follow them. But remember we live in a free country where each of us gets to decide what’s right and what’s wrong.

Neither side should pressure or bully the others because if you think you are the holder of the truth that’s just your arrogance waving its hand in the air. What you will learn is that waving of the hand can easily turn into a slap with you on the receiving end.


Discouragement is a choice.

Action is the remedy.

So what will you do?

I agree that many of us are terrible at patience and want quick fixes.

I will take issue three things you wrote:

  1. Your notes on Covid restrictions are fear mongering. You say they are happening already. Please tell us where. Sometimes, Rick, you are vague on details. (BTW, if hospitals reinstitute mask or other restrictions, and the "they need us more than we need them attitude prevails, people who refuse will suffer, not the hospitals.)

  2. Again, there is no evidence that Biden took bribes. (If he did, I will condemn him,) Mr. Archer, the big GOP witness could not /would not confirm that in front of Congress.

  3. Yo write about each person getting to decide what is right and wrong.…

Many of us refuse to buy into any of this but you're free to make your own choices as we should be free to make ours. The Jan 6th comment made me smile.

Oh please, Rick. This nonsense has been debunked. We've talked about this before. The Repubs have NO actual proof, just unproven theories they are pushing to counter tRump's getting caught in his highly illegal activities...

Shouldn't you wait for such mandates to actually return before you start fear-mongering us, Rick?

I will fight with my last breath adn bullet against tyranny, and the power and control wanting to be exercised not just by the left but also neo conservatives and RINO's. We cannot let them reinstitute mask mandates and lockdowns, if we do you can and will be left in a country we use to call America, land of the free and home of the brave. It will then be land of the indentured servant and formerly land of the brave no of sheep, communists, and cowards

It's much more than that Wayne and the fact that you don't see it says so much. Have a great day.
