Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #195
Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #195. We are just a few ticks of the timekeeper before striking a new year. Let me go ahead and wish you a very happy New Year to you and your loved ones. May 2023 be a great year for all of you. Christmas has come and gone again and now we brace for the unknown in a new year. The unknown. Sounds scary, doesn't it? It's only scary if you allow it to occupy your life and guide you in negative directions.
Did you have a blessed Christmas? I know Christmas is different for many of us and some prefer a good book, cookies, and cold milk, while others work community projects and programs, while others load up and drive to be with family. Christmas has changed so much over the years, and I don't hear much about families getting together for a few days together like the old days. I think as we age our priorities change as does our focus on what is really important. I think it is fair to say many of us had a rough 2022 with all the world and national news, family situations, and local environment. I pray for peace and strength in each of your hearts and homes as we move into a new year filled with challenges and decisions. Do your best to keep grounded and wise. No matter how scary it gets for you, remember, you have the ability to control much of it by your choices. If you are wondering what I mean, you should read my second book titled Hope for Survival - The Mindset. Get outside the circle and stay left of bang. Control vs being controlled.
Please consider reaching out to those around you who may need a friend, a friendly voice, a meal, something warm to eat or drink, or maybe a spare blanket. Yes, we are good people indeed, but we also must do good deeds for those in need of support or maybe a spare hand just to get up again. Many who are down lost hope in our system and humanity. You, me, us, can lift a spirit and help another start putting one foot in front of the other. What say you? I wonder if those who froze to death in the past week at home or while traveling would still be alive had they prepared or had a buddy system in place.
Okay, we are still in our holiday period so I'm going to keep this weeks' edition shorter. than normal. Hey, who is that clapping in the back of this circus tent?

Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.
Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...
Thoughts for the week -
I reflect on 2022 and as bad as it has seemed, it's not all bad. We are alive. We are good people mostly living for a common purpose and cause. We work or have worked, live off our retirement and investments, and basically want to be left alone. Keep it simple, right? Isn't that how it was taught to us growing up? Work hard, play hard, and enjoy life. Show respect for our country, our elders, stand for the national anthem and salute the flag (veterans). We shared the history of our great nation with our kids and grandkids pointing important times in our history. It was important, right?
I'm thankful to wake up each day and realize each morning I can see, smell, hear, taste, walk and breath. Life is a blessing and never guaranteed. Just look around at the many sudden deaths for no known reasoning. The world can look very bleak depending how we see the view. We can live through and accept the unliked changes occurring or we can be the remnant that drives the change. We can be the mass being governed or be the mass of ungovernable. Remember, we the people are the majority being governed by the minority. Right now, the majority is being governed with little resistance. Think about that. The government that is by the people for the people and works for us and is paid by us is pushing to get us in another war after being in wars the past 20 plus years.
We are living through some of the most difficult changes our nation has faced in our lifetime. Most of us didn't live through World War II, the Korean War, the Great Depression and other life changing events for our citizens. In past history, our citizens would come together for the greater good of the nation. Can we say that today? We are so divided as people. Faith, socio-economic, race, LBTQRSXYZ and more. Have you noticed these items are not necessarily agendas of the people, but agendas pushed by the government and liberal agenda?
This chapter in our history is so bad the ink telling the story will likely be runny and smear to leave the reader confused. When a percentage of our populace believes a human born as a male can become a female and a female can be a dad, we have severe psychological issues occurring while humans are butchering their bodies. This is so bad that adults and doctors, are agreeing to butcher children who can't decide on their type of morning cereal yet can make a life altering decision to change their sex from birth. Adults are going along with this, and no shame is great enough. Society and laws will allow Child Protective Services to remove a child from a home if a parent speaks out against the system, a school, or any other system trying to sway a child's way of thinking against genetic changes and modification. Yet, a parent who encourages a child to decide against their sex at birth, it's all okay.
We are living through a period as a society where our cultural has transitioned from the everyone got a trophy for finishing last and today there is no 2nd place. If you aren't first, you are last and the pain of last place in today's stakes is life changing and painful to put it mildly. How much of this evil can your stomach take before you realize you need to have a personal vomiting session and when you can't take it no more, you realize to yourself enough is enough. Have you reached that point yet? And?
Like I said in Hope for Survival Book 1, I don't care if you kiss camels or hug trees, I don't answer for you, but I do care for you and want the best for you here and in your afterlife. If you haven't figured it out yet, we are living in a period of good vs evil. It is only going to get worse. Oh, I know some are voicing they have their faith, and all will be good. Why are so many Christians' hiding and believing there is no chance they are going to live through some or all of what we appear to be heading towards?
I think back to life growing up when a man was a man. Most men could be called warriors to some degree. Men walked out the door to mostly labor jobs in industry, farming, fighting wars and so forth. There was nothing wrong with men working desk jobs because many earned a degree and contributed to science, space, education, and other important jobs. A man was born a man and grew up in the role of a man. Today, we have pronouns, crossdressers, want to be role players, and dreamers. All, a small percentage of the overall population but they are winning the PR and Government battle against our morals and way of life. No matter where you stand on this global and national position, I want you to keep this in mind. We can debate the psychological, physiological, and psychiatric points on what is a male, when is a male a female, and all the rest of the manly hood of the future. No matter how many surgeries, uplifts, new curves, hair growth and the rest, a male is born with testicles and there has yet to be progress worth discussing in a testicular transplant. Period. Removal yes. Transplant, Rare and highly unsuccessful.
As a nation we lack men. Not pretend men, want to be men, role playing men, or dressed up like men. We lack men with God given testicles and a chest that stands out like a man. This is not a born female wearing clothing to press down a chest and a GI haircut and manly boots to role play a man. Sure, many are manly, and I give them that. But they are not men. I'm not slighting ladies on any account and I have written how I witness more females standing up and being leaders than men. Today, men are soft, lack the ability to lead, and cower to being told no. They refuse to stand up for what they stand for and believe to be moral, right, and the rule of law. We can blame this on numerous causes but it starts in the home and in a nation that pays females more money to have children out of wedlock and not have a man in the hom
