    Iíve said it before. Iíll say it again. Itís going to be the same as the frog in hot water experiment. Long and slow but the proggies will take over and the country will slide into oblivion. I just hope Iím with my savior before it happens. I used to believe it was years away. Now Iím not at all sure of that.

    God must love fools and scoundrels, he made so many of them.

    You're on the right track. Presently, they may be turning up the heat a little too fast and the frog will save himself. That's my best hope anyway.

    PS Stick around for a while, enjoy the ride.

    I hear what you're saying, but my problem with that scenario (beyond the fact that the frog thing is scientifically false. It has been tried.) is that history doesn't seem to support such a transition. Can you think of an instance in history where that has happened? I think you will find that people, like frogs, will only tolerate so much until they get out of that hot water any way they can. People will get pushed only so far before they rebel and form a new government. Other than a few rare exceptions said rebellions are invariably violent and rather destructive. Frankly, I prefer the term rebellion over civil war which I always found to be an oxymoron.

    At any rate, something is going to have to give in America. Our differences have become far too stark for peace to last much longer. To be honest, I hope I'm dead and gone when it happens, but I have this feeling in my gut that I won't be. We'll see.

    The frog experiment has been successful. I perticipated.

    The people can only be pushed so far is true but what happening is the attitude about what is ďpushingĒ is changing. This is why I have always believed the downfall days were out in the future some goodly distance. And if the transition is pushed too hard, you are correct. There will be massive pushback. But... If the proggies will exhibit patience and continue to indoctrinate from pre-k up, it will happen. And nobody but a few old folks will notice.
