Freedom of Speech begins in the Family…
I need to send this to all you… whether you read it, or not… or like what is written, or not. I’m sending to my Family… you should too, as all need to read this. If you think I’m ‘ageist’ about family, I feel sorry for you and your future. If you think ‘family’ is out dated… you need to fear for your wellbeing.
I believe that Freedom of Speech begins in the family. I believe the family is the largest and the most solid building block of America. Family is America.
Over the last decade or so, most families now gather as foreigners to each other… afraid to be the way we were once towards each other as family… loving people of blood and association. Looking each other in the eyes and projecting thoughts of love and affection. Hugging each other as unpretentious children naturally would. Defending each by standing back to back read to repel those who would do another family member harm.
Family is where each of us should be able to find confidence, comfort and support and where we can “let our hair down.” It should be a place that love permeates… regardless of beliefs.
Being tactful is one thing at family gatherings. Like knowing your married Uncle is having an affair with Martha, another family member also married and all trying to avoid any mention of it… or talking about the fact Aunt Gertrude is unapologetically flatulent.
It’s prudent to keep comments on Aunt Gertrude to yourself… actually unnecessary to talk about, as the odor transmits a message in lieu of words. Unless she says… “Someone’s stomach must be upset!” deflecting the blame from herself as she stares accusingly at an innocent family member.
But being able to openly talk about issues that are political or ideological… that’s what made us great in the history and scheme of this timeless world. These issues need to be discussed at family get togethers… maybe not prudent to the cohesiveness of some families, but necessary to maintain one of our Bill of Rights that is critical to the continuance of America’s remaining Freedoms. Freedom of Speech.
How has it come to… you telling your Sister about the most intimate details of your last night’s high school date… but now you’re afraid to ask her whether she’s been vaccinated? Age and wisdom, you say. Bull shytte… it’s far from wise.
I’m certain many of my family members would rather this not be sent out by me. They’d rather sit uncomfortably around other family members with a shytte eating look on their face and be compliant to those who have become the social dictators and censors in the family.
The common warning by family dictators and censors… “Ohhhh… we don’t talk about that here!” while you gaze at the decades worn face of the sibling who’d just spoken those words, wondering if the deadly sounding tone of finality of that statement and those taut lips that barely reveal their teeth don’t have more in common with a blood thirsty wolf, than the genetics of your parents and family.
So, the meek and compliant sit anxiously wearing that false smile while constipated with thought and emotion.
Well, here’s the newest of the family prohibited topics. The covid. I refuse to capitalize the word covid as I’ve lived in Africa where my wife was been born and raised. When you have been amongst Cholera and Typhus… you know what an epidemic of dangerous infectious disease is… and covid is not that.
So, here’s my latest on our family gathering… not. Some family, blinded and ignorant believers, have come out directly asking that all attending family functions be vaccinated. These same people also veto discussion about the covid.
I have a friend whose response to that in his family was something like this to his wife… “Relay to him that I need to do an anal swab on him with a wash cloth attached to a broom handle. The broom handle is quite long…” he said… “I want to make certain I get into the farthest and deepest recesses, because it must be there… since he believes covid is so deadly and everywhere. This inspection may take some time.”
“Or, all the vaccinated attending can provide us with a blood Serum test proving they have covid antibodies or don’t have covid and that they’re not carriers and shedders of other infectious diseases.”
I have a “color crayon box” family of every race, sexual persuasion, creed and belief. I say at the conclusion of my book the Civil Defense Manual…
“I have 75 years of life experience. I have a ‘color crayon box’ family of all races, beliefs, sexual identities, religions. Like amongst people of the world, it is a constant struggle in my family, but I encourage people to tolerate each other and live in harmony.”
Damn… I’ve got to read what I just wrote again. I have family members I haven’t talked to for years… because in their quest for knowledge, they’ve become so “enlightened by ‘education’” that they’re literally turned into believers in that greatest illusion and hoax of all… Communism.
But, for their own good and that of others, they need to talk with some of the people that I know who’ve lived in it and risked their lives to escape from its relentless and spirit extinguishing bounds. They need to travel more than the 500 miles they’ve been from home… all they know of the world comes from books.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all for 2021!!
Give hugs and kisses to my family members.

“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.”
“When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed.”
“A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” – Theodore Dalrymple
Post Scriptum… I now let all know by this email that I will no longer attend funerals, weddings or any other event hosted by those who are Covidphobics and Vaccine Fanatics. Family or not. Since it’s now deemed inappropriate to ask some questions or discuss some topic, I’ll send a covid free card by Post. Gosh! Now I’m wondering… are all who handle the mail covid free? Huh!
