The Colonel #88 The Business of Business
“Mindin’ other people’s business seems to be high toned, I got all I can do just to mind my own. Why don’t you mind your own business, mind your own business. If you mind your own business, you’ll stay busy all the time.”
Sage advice for Brandon and Americans in general. Turn off your television, turn on your mind, get your tinfoil hat out of the closet if you need it, but come to your senses. You are not the liberty police that you believe yourselves to be, and that goofy-looking, government-mandated mask you’re wearing is proof of what I say.
As the scripture teaches, “If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses?”
If you cannot resist the decrees of unelected government regulators and timid governors in your own town, you have no business thinking about securing liberty for others halfway around the world. This is not Hitler and the Sudetenland, minding our own business is not appeasement of the Russians. The former Soviet Republics have never been more than semi-autonomous satellites—for all practical purposes it’s an internal matter, no matter how much Biden and Pelosi have invested while pretending otherwise.
God may have endowed all people with inalienable rights, but to those, who for lack of experience know nothing of the free exercise of liberty, those words have no meaning. Liberty and the will to maintain it cannot be exported—it must be won with one’s own sacrifice and blood. In that way, its value does not fade away and it is not easily surrendered.
The American constitutional form of government was meant for those who had, by their own blood and sacrifice, secured it for themselves. I love how hypocrites get all flustered at Christians for evangelizing and “trying to make everybody worship as they do,” then turn around and demand every nation in the world be a mini-version of the U.S.
Every nation is not meant to be a mirror image of the United States. This may come as a shock to the likes of Brandon, and the woke crowd but a great many nations think your politically correct pronouns, insistence on a dictated list of human rights, and bass-ackward attempts at equality, and inclusion are utter lunacy.
You won’t hear me say they are wrong.
Weep not for Ukraine, rather weep that you have forgotten the rag-tag band of colonists, facing the deadly cold of winter, a smallpox epidemic, dysentery, and starvation, armed with little more than hope who took on the world’s greatest military power and won. How is it we cannot allow others to do the same?
Let the nations of the world win their own freedom if they want it. Maybe then, they will value it enough to do what they must to keep it. It is not the duty of America to win freedom for everyone. It is our duty to maintain liberty within our borders for our citizens.
Our fighting men and women are not sworn to defend pan-global freedom seekers, local revolutions, the interests of our government officials, or the rules and regulations of unelected czars. They are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States—period!
If we need to be proactive in defense of the Constitution, remove the senile man residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, his milquetoast colleagues, and the unelected rulers who from ivory towers conjure rules and regulations that mandate every facet of our lives. They are the real threat to the Constitution. Let’s make sure freedom true rings here before we start a chorus of “We Are the World”.
Minding my own business takes up most of my time. Voicing my opinions takes up the rest of it. My debt of duty has been paid (in a different futile waste of America’s time, resources, and lives). That does not preclude a freewill offering of more, but before you pass the hat, be sure what you are all fired up about this week is worth the investment you are asking others to make on your behalf.
