Thursday, Not Feeling It

 Piddling around the house today, waiting on the FedEx guy.  Doing laundry, entertaining the dawg.  I can't work up any outrage about anything.

Victor Davis Hanson has a column up at PJMedia, and reading through it, I was struck y the feeling that I didn't understand what he was saying.  I've been following Dr. Hanson's work for a long time, and I an a fan.  I'm not even sure what his theses was.

For myself, I am struck by the knowledge that much of what is reported on tin the national news has no actual impact on me.  The grass still grows, the dog still needs water, and whether or not some outrage occurs in a distant city really doesn't affect my acre. When I look outside, the grass still needs to be cut and the flower bed could use some work.  I suspect that a lot of America feels the same way I do.

I've spent the last couple of weeks with like-minded 2A enthusiasts, and while the national politic was part of the conversation, it was a tiny part.  Coming out of the Covid madness, we simply happy to enjoy each other's company and revel in our freedom.

I still consider Creepy Joe and his puppet-masters a dire threat to the Republic, but today I simply can't gin up any outrage.  A friend is throwing a crawfish boil later today and that will be an opportunity to eat some mudbugs, drink a little beer and try to reset my thought patterns.

local Local LOCAL. When we want to change the world, begin outside your door step, then yard, then street, then neighborhood, and so forth.

What cannot be remedied must be endured.

This matches my feelings today. I can’t bring myself to be upset about anything. The floor needs to be swept and this weekend the yard needs some much overdue attention.

Finally....finally someone verbalizing my malaise. I'm athunkin' it's a universal feeling these days. Have heard the same sentiment voiced on other blogs.
I think the "normals" have done shot their wads and are hunkering down....waiting for the bell to ring and the civil war to begin.
