Wow, this is pretty intense, and I have such mixed emotions right now about what I just listened to. My first reaction was "joy" and relief, it's
always seemed obvious to me that our only hope of taking back our country has to involve and be supported by the military, and if indeed this is true
I can only hope "Drake" is correct that media coverage is a big part of the plan and people will be informed asap, if the mass arrests made are indeed
" the bad guys" then I think people will be more inclined to cooperate and view the actions being taken as sincere.
My concerns are, as others have mentioned, is this perhaps a way to "calm" us all down when we see military in the streets? Even if this absolutely
true, and the military's intent is good, will people be so freaked out that they start "firing" on them, thus causing "chaos"? Why is "Drake" talking
at this point, what are his motives and intentions? Is he trying to prevent chaos? Oh boy, it's complicated..
I will end this by sharing a story that happened recently ( 6 mns ago ) that really pulled at my "heart strings" and made me re-evaluate my perception
of life and people. I live in CA, USA, grew up in LA, have lived most of my adult life in the Bay Area, "liberal" upbringing and background. I never
had any ill-will toward military people, but basically viewed them as part of something I felt was wrong, and the thought of "kids" ours and "thiers"
being killed and "manipulated for "greedy" purposes weighed heavy on my mind.
OK, lol, now I will get to the story. I'm dog/house sitting for my sister who lives in Central CA, airforce base about 30 miles away, rural, farming,
small town, as I'm driving up to her house the houses for blocks are lined up and decorated with hundreds of American flags and yellow ribbons, I have
no idea why, and since my sis and family had already left, I just let myself in and dealt with the dogs ( very cute ) anyways a few hours later I get
a knock on the door and it was my sister's neighbor who was organizing a neighborhood effort to bring meals to a family, 3 houses down from my sis who
just lost thier son overseas, of course I was happy to help on my sister's behalf and my own, and I also offered to make fruit salad for the "wake"
although I did not attend funeral.
Shortly after the neighbor came by I get another knock on the door and it was the local news asking me to comment, since I didn't live there or really
know the people involved I declined to comment, when I later spoke with my boyfriend in Bay Area he asked me why I didn't use the opportunity to speak
up against war, and my response was it would have been in completely bad taste, the "love vibe" and compassion I was witnessing was truely beautiful
and as I began to know more about the young man killed it broke my heart, he left behind a young bride and beautiful little boy, loving friends and
Two days later, the day of the funeral I walk down and deliver the fruit salad to the mother's house, and I meet this kid's sister, she's there taking
care of her Mom who is grief stricken and finally got her to eat something and rest. When I first walked up to the house I noticed a little bird
sitting there and it was wierd cause this bird didn't fly away or seem to be scared? The sister and I are talking on the front porch and I asked her,
what's up with this bird? She explains to me that the day her brother was killed, even before the family knew, this bird showed up, and won't leave.
The Mom has been given some comfort by this little bird and gives it food and water, and sits on the porch with it. It gives me chills just thinking
So at the end of the day, "Miracles" are possible...and I truely pray (lol, I used to be agnostic) that we will have the collective heart and wisdom
to choose the right path, I'm inclined to give the "benefit of the doubt" to "Drake"
