We are all about to have a rude awakening. Some of us are old enough to remember the past. The younger generation has been so spoiled by the goodness of living in the USA, that they have no idea what is coming.
They are about to see why our parents/grandparents drove cars until the wheels fell off. And why it was typical to have one car per family. And why young newlyweds weren’t automatically entitled to a fully furnished house. Or lavish wedding (Do y’all remember when a wedding reception typically occurred in the fellowship hall of the church? And the only food was wedding cake, mints, mixed nuts and punch?) A honeymoon might include a night at a hotel, or if they were really lucky they might get a weekend in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
There weren’t restaurants on every corner, because people only RARELY ate out. They cooked every meal at home. Or packed a lunch for the road. And they never wasted leftovers. Picky eaters? You either ate what your Mama cooked or you did without. AND NO ONE CARED. We are about to rediscover potato patties, soup, hash, biscuit pudding, rice pudding and bread with gravy. NO FOOD WAS WASTED.
People had few outfits. You had church clothes and play clothes. And you took care of those clothes. Holes were mended and it didn’t matter if you liked the clothes or not. You wore what you had.
And people didn’t snack or eat all day long either. People were rarely overweight. Because they didn’t have an unlimited supply of food at their fingertips.
People weren’t being constantly entertained. Kids played outside and made up games with their imaginations. No fancy vacations. There was no money for all these extras that we consider “Rights”.
Maybe people will finally wake up and realize that it is a PRIVILEGE to be an American. And feel gratitude and quit being such entitled whiney babies.
People shed blood and died to give us this life.
AND WE ARE STARTING TO PROVE THAT WE DON’T DESERVE IT.

This Convoy is not just for the truckers mandates.
It’s for the family members banned from visiting family in nursing homes.
It’s for the censorship on all social media platforms.
It’s for all the people afraid to speak in fear of being called conspiracy theorists.
It’s for the people who didn’t want to give up their freedom of choice!
It’s for the people who don’t want to give up their right to bear arms.
It’s for the people who don’t want to be in debt for the next 100 years.
It’s for the people who only want answers to the many questions that haven’t been answered.
It’s for the people afraid to hug their family and visit friends.
It’s for the people who want their lives back.
For the hairdressers to cut hair.
For the restaurants to serve food.
For the bars to play music.
For the students to learn.
For the kids to be free.
For people who want to work but are forced not to.
This is for the people.
This is for trying to silence honest and hardworking citizens.
Never in my life have I ever seen the healthy punished and the sick untreated.
This is for the 300,000 surgeries cancelled.
This is for the people that died waiting for their surgery.
This is for the people who died alone in the hospital without being able to hold that hands of their loved ones.
This is for the exhausted nurses, teachers, parents etc.
This is for the doctors that are going unheard.
This is for all the front line workers, delivery trucks, grocery store clerks, PSWs who are constantly working overtime etc.
This is for all of us.
If you do not support the truckers, IT’S OKAY because:
If mandates get lifted I would like to remind you…. you can still stay home. No one will rip the mask off your face, no one will force you to dine in at a restaurant, you can drop your children off at their leisure activity and wait in your car, you can still say no to family gatherings and events, you can live within your 4 walls and NO ONE will stop you. We will not judge you for your choice – we will just be glad you have one. That is the point of FREEDOM of choice! While you’re comfortable where you are we are also comfortable moving on with our lives.
A member of the small fringe minority with unacceptable views
Jordan Peterson has become a voice of reason in an age of otherwise insanity. His books have been bestsellers. His podcasts, interviews, and live debates have kept listeners glued to seats, absorbing every word. Peterson himself often tearfully recounts instances in which people have approached him just to say how he’s changed their lives. But now, a group of people he has dedicated years of his life to will no longer have the kind of access to his calm, collected, measured wisdom, for he’s decided to resign from his position at the University of Toronto.null
In a column for the National Post, Peterson outlines exactly why he has chosen to leave the academy: the diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) disease that has infected the entire institution. He writes that because of the DIE insanity that grips the academy, his “heterosexual white male graduate students […] face a negligible chance of being offered university research positions.” And, if his students manage to conquer that hill, because of his philosophical positions, they might still be rejected, as his presence in their education and development as scholars has somehow tainted them. “These facts rendered my job morally untenable.”null
The DIE, he explains has destroyed several areas of the academy. The DIE push to meet racial, ethnic, and gender quotas ensures less than qualified candidates are accepted. “This means we’re out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job,” and the “death of objective testing” all but makes this much certain.
For faculty, he describes them as “craven,” lying and paying homage to the DIE overlords in statements for the purpose of receiving research funding, “further corrupting what is already a stunningly corrupt enterprise.” What’s more, Peterson writes, these spineless academics teach their students to do the same.
And if the behavior of the individual professors was not bad enough, Peterson explains that “the accrediting boards for graduate clinical psychology training programs in Canada are now planning to refuse to accredit university clinical programs unless they have ‘social justice’ orientation.”
The universities will be required to prime students to become leftist activists or be denied accreditation.
“Similar moves are afoot in other professional disciplines, such as medicine and law. And if you don’t think that psychologists, lawyers and other professionals are anything but terrified of their now woke governing professional colleges, much to everyone’s extreme detriment, you simply don’t understand how far this has all gone.”
All of this is to say that the academy is an institution rotten to its core, gripped by the venomous tentacles of the DIE monster.
“We are now at the point where race, ethnicity, “gender,” or sexual preference is first, accepted as the fundamental characteristic defining each person (just as the radical leftists were hoping) and second, is now treated as the most important qualification for study, research and employment. Need I point out that this is insane.”
Before closing his column, Peterson lashes out in righteous anger at those making this takeover possible.
“[T]his is on you Professor. Cowever cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. […] CEOs: signalling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. […] Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists…”
I think it’s safe to say that the University of Toronto has lost an invaluable member of the faculty, and the professoriate at large has lost one of the last warriors willing to fight for what they are too cowardly to fight for themselves.
Perhaps if more professors had Peterson’s stones, the universities wouldn’t have anyone left to push their nonsense, and, just maybe, they might start changing, but this is far too much to ask, I suppose.
For now, the universities continue to prove to be garbage heaps of terrible ideas, substandard scholarship, and a limiting worldview detrimental to all those who choose to walk through the doors, and Jordan B. Peterson will no longer be participating in it.
“He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.”
I look forward to seeing what Peterson will be doing with all his free time. I love his books, and if you haven’t read them, you should.
The dirty Democrats in D.C. got a taste of dictatorial control over “We, the people” as we went from “15 days to flatten the curve” to 18 months of their plannedemic to “3 jabs or lose your job.” And they desire to keep expanding governmental control via their “mandates” and whatever dempanic they can create to amass more control over the masses.
Biden and his cohorts in crime want to fire those people who have been working and earning a living throughout the entire COVID-19 thing because those people have actually slowed the attempted total takeover of complete control of our lives. They have no clue that they are attempting to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs, nor do they even care. Problematically, they seem to think there are too many golden geese.

They don’t lie to you because the truth will hurt your feelings; they lie to you because the truth might provoke you to make choices that won’t serve their interests.
