Reblog- I feel Your Pain

Here’s are-blog from weathering the journey. Its funny because alhtough I do not personally know the author of that blog, we often seem to post the same htings and share a similar view on living in this country. Her blogs may be more polite, but it would appear that the feeling of frustration and despair are there. Reading her posts are like looking into a literary mirror as we share the same sentiments, and all these yet she is doomed to some other layer of Dantes inferno Hell than I, she has been doomed to the south central quadrant, while I have been sentenced to the north. Here is her post, she is experiencing the same problems as I …


“Internet Trouble – This is CODE for: You know the problem. I hate Big Brother. Apparently, Someone’s had their feelings hurt. I’m so grateful I’m going back the the U.S! Land of the (mostly) free and home of the brave.

I may post later (I’m doing this by email). I don’t have access to my online stuff though so it may be that my blogging will be less than it has been the last couple of months. Especially since sitting at the computer with these sorts of restrictions has a tendency to make me want to use Bad Words. (Just you wait, Henry Higgins, just you wait.) I’ll do at least one post a day though, except when we are actually traveling, so you all know we are still alive, at least.

FYI, I’ll be unable to moderate comments until I have better internet access, so if your comment doesn’t appear, please understand it’s not because I’m ignoring you. Do me a favor everyone. Reread Brave New World by George Orwell. It’s a banned book on this side of the Big Blue and there’s a reason. It’s because Every. Single. Stinking. Unbelievable. Word of it. Is. True.

Sorry this post isn’t more grateful, but maybe it will serve to make You more grateful. Remember, the clean water you drink and the words you speak are things you have because America’s founders believed our Creator gave us inalienable rights and the people thought they were worth fighting for.

winner-winner, chicken dinner 🙂

  1. Yes, thank you for sharing this. All of the above is true but in honesty I must add this revision. Life gets instantly better when you pay the toll for your tunnel under the great firewall… sigh. You have No Idea the rants my Inner Brat has been through today. Well, maybe you do.
