Halloween... I don't know were that all suddenly got mixed in. .
Christmas and Easter are pagan holidays that were "Christianized" in the same way churches are now doing "fall festival" on Halloween. It started out as an alternative to the pagan observance and then became a christianized holiday.
I don't give the devil a single moment of honor, much less a whole day, so enjoy those dates on the calendar. It's a great time for being with family and giving is always permissible, of course.
My previous remarks are only about separating fact from fiction.
The devil made me do it!
Bro, I'm sorry. What I meant to say is that you are being played by the politicians you trust and need to think about it before you help them anymore.
I can look out the window of my room last night and tonight at the Auschwicz Concentration camp, did a concert in this city a few hours ago. This entire tour has been booked around Holocaust historical events leading up to the March of Life Hungary, where I'm going tomorrow for the last week.
I don't just read history. Since 2006 I go to the historical places and touch it. I study on the very spots where it happened and talk to the people who were there. I've been to hundreds of former labor camps and almost every single death camp, more than anyone here could name without looking it up.
I want to know how the most sophisticated nation in Europe could go south so quickly. Hitler killed 11 million people in these camps...with only a lie. Most of them were told they were going to be resettled in a better place, that work could make them free, and they would get free health care. They just needed to take a shower before de-liceing.
So I realize you are trying to be a good citizen when you believe the liars in American politics have your interests in mind. But history tells me they don't. So either you are deceived by them or in denial of the obvious. Either way, they are turning you against the freedom Americans have enjoyed for more than 200 years until now.
Just like any dictator you could name, when they convince you that you are a victim of someone else (Bundy's cows eating free grass for example) then they can turn you into a perpetrator for their hidden agenda, which isn't for your good but theirs. Meanwhile, I'm watching a nightmare repeat itself and trying to wake people up before it's too late.
But regardless, I apologize if my remarks were too personal. I just fear where the liars are taking us and directed my angst in the wrong direction. At you.
Again...I'm truly sorry for not being more graceful about it. Fear does that to me and I should have recognized it.
