THE SILENT GENERATION

My old friend, Jim Heck, shared this walk back through my early life and it brought back many memories. As we are now dying off rather fast it will hopefully be something my own children might understand. Some of my grandchildren may remember tales and pictures but most will have no perception of life I experienced or really care. I have no idea who compiled this walk through history but I would like to thank them for their work.

TAKE A WALK THROUGH MY ERA

Born in the 1930s and early 40s, we exist as a very special age cohort. We are the Silent Generation.

We are the smallest number of children born since the early 1900s. We are the “last ones.”

We are the last generation, climbing out of the depression, who can remember the winds of war and the impact of a world at war which rattled the structure of our daily lives for years.

We are the last to remember ration books for everything from gas to sugar to shoes to stoves.

We saved tin foil and poured fat into tin cans.

We hand mixed ’white stuff’ with ‘yellow stuff’ to make fake butter.

We saw cars up on blocks because tires weren’t available.

We can remember milk being delivered to our house early in the morning and placed in the “milk box” on the porch. [A friend’s mother delivered milk in a horse drawn cart.] We sometimes fed the horse, and our dog, Spot, a Fox Terrier, would greet the milkman when he made our delivery, then he would ride in Glenn’s truck til the end of his route, when Glenn would drive by the house and let Spot off the truck just in time to greet us coming home from elementary school.

We are the last to hear Roosevelt’s radio “fireside chat” assurances and to see gold stars in the front windows of our grieving neighbors.

We can also remember the parades on August 15, 1945; VJ Day.

We saw the ‘boys’ home from the war, build their Cape Cod style houses, pouring the cellar, tar papering it over and living there until they could afford the time and money to build it out.

We remember trying to buy a new car after the war. The new cars were coming through with wooden bumpers.

We are the last generation who spent childhood without television; instead we imagined what we heard on the radio.

As we all like to brag, with no TV, we spent our childhood “playing outside until the street lights came on.”

We did play outside and we did play on our own.

There was no little league.

There was no city playground for kids.

To play in the water, we turned the fire hydrants on and ran through the spray.

The lack of television in our early years meant, for most of us, that we had little real understanding of what the world was like.

Our Saturday afternoons, if at the movies, gave us newsreels of the war sandwiched in between westerns and cartoons.

Telephones were one to a house, often shared and hung on the wall.

Computers were called calculators, they only added and were hand cranked; typewriters were driven by pounding fingers, throwing the carriage, and changing the ribbon.

The ‘internet’ and ‘GOOGLE’ were words that didn’t exist.

Newspapers and magazines were written for adults and the news was broadcast on our table radio in the evening by H.V Kaltenborne and Gabriel Heatter.

We are the last group who had to find out for ourselves.

As we grew up, the country was exploding with growth.

The G.I. Bill gave returning veterans the means to get an education and spurred colleges to grow.

VA loans fanned a housing boom.

Pent up demand coupled with new installment payment plans put factories to work.

New highways would bring jobs and mobility.

The veterans joined civic clubs and became active in politics.

In the late 40’s and early 50’s the country seemed to lie in the embrace of brisk but quiet order as it gave birth to its new middle class (which became known as ‘Baby Boomers’).

The radio network expanded from 3 stations to thousands of stations.

The telephone started to become a common method of communications and “Faxes” sent hard copy around the world.

Our parents were suddenly free from the confines of the depression and the war and they threw themselves into exploring opportunities they had never imagined.

We weren’t neglected but we weren’t today’s all-consuming family focus.

They were glad we played by ourselves ‘until the street lights came on.’

They were busy discovering the post war world.

Most of us had no life plan, but with the unexpected virtue of ignorance and an economic rising tide we simply stepped into the world and started to find out what the world was about.

We entered a world of overflowing plenty and opportunity; a world where we were welcomed.

Based on our naive belief that there was more where this came from, we shaped life as we went.

We enjoyed a luxury; we felt secure in our future. Of course, just as today, not all Americans shared in this experience.

Depression poverty was deep rooted.

Polio was still a crippler.

The Korean War was a dark presage in the early 50s and by mid-decade school children were ducking under desks.

Russia built the “Iron Curtain” and China became Red China.

Castro set up camp in Cuba and Khrushchev came to power.

We are the last generation to experience an interlude when there were no existential threats to our homeland.

We came of age in the 40s and early 50s. The war was over and the cold war, terrorism, technological upheaval, “global warming”, and perpetual economic insecurity had yet to haunt life with insistent unease.

Only our generation can remember both a time of apocalyptic war and a time when our world was secure and full of bright promise and plenty. We have lived through both.

We grew up at the best possible time, a time when the world was getting better not worse.

We are the Silent Generation – “The Last Ones”.

More than 99.9% of us are either retired or deceased, and feel privileged to have “lived in the best of times”! ANON

Sadly no one, including family, really cares.  C Brewer

AMERICAN’S ARE YOU READY TO BECOME A MONARCHY?

SOCIALISM IS AN ABSOLUTE REALITY!

Watching the news  today is like watching a country that was created to be a Christian nation of laws systemically racing to destroy itself. I was born in 1930, a time when politicians and misguided leadership had plunged America into what history has named the “Great Depression”. I am sure there are thousands of similar stories but one happened to my Dad. He was born in 1902 and was too young to be in the first world war and  reached manhood when America was trying to help returning veterans return into the labor force. Faced with only having a high school education he found employment helping build railroads across west Texas. For those unaware of west Texas even today is a vast area and in the early 1920’s was sparsely populated except for rattlesnakes, scorpions, tarantulas and horned toads. If that was not enough this area of Texas is noted for really hot weather and dust storms that you would never believe unless you have seen one.

The bottom line is that by 1929 he had saved over $3000 and met, courted and married the greatest lady I ever knew, my mother. Shortly after they married the banks failed and my father lost everything he had worked so hard for overnight. Should your reading this article spark any interest of reading why these events happen,or why we have had all wars, read deeper. I have written some of the thousands of articles about the clandestine creation of  the Federal Reserve that is still a secret assemblage who operate with secret meetings. If that sparks any further thirst for knowledge read the articles I have written about another secret society named “Tavistock”, When you can understand that our world is controlled by secret societies and power is associated with wealth you can more clearly understand how we the people are controlled.

I have actually lived in  what history will acknowledge was the turning point for America to be the greatest nation on earth. The agony and loss of so many young men and the emergence of the working woman during the second world war changed America and created the emergence of a “middle class citizen. the 1950’s was the greatest era America had ever seen and will never be repeated. This exciting era actually lasted until the death of John Kennedy allowed the emergence of what has today near created the possibility of a second “Civil War”. The architect of this possible destruction of our Republic form of government was President Lyndon B Johnson. He does not deserve any accolades as he was not that intelligent. In fact he was so gullible he let the Progressives control his every action that has us so close to self-destruction today.

 President Carter and Nixon were eras of letting the Progressives gain power and the loss of influence in the world. Iran would still be a great nation headed for changing the Middle East into a 20th century society if Carter had not let the radical religious zealots gain control of the country. This caused the rise of power and the emergence of what is now called ISIS.

President Reagan was the reason there is a vast portion of Europe freed  from Communists control. This era was the last one that actually  slowed the Progressive control of America and their march toward changing America into a Socialist Democracy. If Hillary Clinton is elected President we are destined  to see the emergence and acceptance of being a monarchy and an “Elite Class” that we now actually have allowed to exist today. When this form of government is in place the minorities and “freebies” who the Demoncrats have amassed to elect them will wake up to a new world of “responsibility”.

For those who desire to see what form of government Hillary and the Progressives have in mind read my article on the Socialist Democracy with a monarchy in Denmark. I perceive this to be the goal of the America Progressive movement. The people are totally controlled by a central government in every facet of their life. They have a fantastic but government system of healthcare that everyone pays into with 8 percent of your earnings. By the way everyone who is able has to work. One plus for me as an individual  will be watching movements like “Black Lives Matter” and the army of people who are able having to work for their supper instead of sitting on their butts doing nothing.    

I am unafraid as my time watching America destroyed is about over. I have no horse in this race as an individual but I feel so sorry for the current 46 children, grand children and great grand children in my family. The Progressives have amassed the biggest spending spree in history to support Hillary and sink the Trump desire to revive the America I so dearly love. We will all know in November, if Trump is not eliminated like Justice Scalia. The Clinton’s have a history of strange events happening to people in their way. What has amazed me is that Dick Morris is still alive and firing cannons at the Clinton’s.

If Hillary is elected, history will reveal that the Progressive movement was sparked by Teddy Roosevelt in the land grab era and ended by Obama. Even Obama was duped to cause this possible event as he desired to jump directly into Communism. I do not believe that all of the Progressives have that in mind, yet. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong with facts. So vote for what you want in November as it could well be the last vote you ever make.   C Brewer    

AMERICA – “HOME OF THE WEAK and LAND of the SCARED”?

In my 85 years on this earth and growing up during the Great Depression, I never dreamed I would watch this country totally implode in my lifetime. How on God’s green Earth did we possibly let this happen?

We have an aimless President, who lost his own law license, now making new laws by executive actions. He refuses to work with an elected Congress as they will not give him totalitarian power to do anything he pleases.

We have a Supreme Court that is in disarray and demonstrably ignoring the law for compassion reasons and appears totally leaderless.

We have an Executive Branch of Government that is creating regulations to destroy jobs without any accepted reasons. These new requirements are not accepted worldwide but we regulate ourselves out of business to satisfy a bunch of environmental extremists who are just plain crazy. We kill jobs so that other countries can pollute the atmosphere to put their people to work.

We have an Academia that is rewriting history to promote socialism as the best way to eventually destroy our Republic form of government. They are trying to make everyone equal in every facet of our lives. They have brainwashed our youth into believing a leaderless society is the wave of the future and it is beginning to take effect.

We have a Congress that is not only in disarray and combative rather than cohesive, we have the Republican Party in power that is so divided they can’t even agree on anyone to be their new leader. Remember, the Speaker of the House of Representatives is third in line to be our leader and with Biden and Obama wrecking our freedoms daily we are in deep dodo.

If we don’t stop this trend, we will have achieved a totally leaderless government by next year. I am being kind as it appears to be leaderless today but I am an optimist and believe the people have had enough. One thing is certain that if we do not change course our implosion will make the one happening in Greece look anemic.

I am certain that our enemies are enjoying the self-destruction of America with glee. The Russians have moved us aside to demonstrate leadership in the middle-east is accomplished with power instead of leaderless negotiations.

When you are dealing with animals that behead each other over religion that have tanks, cannons, machine guns and a deep inbred history of imbeciles you don’t invite them to a tea party to talk peace. It took Cuba over 50 years to prove we would accept communism with open arms if we ever elected a student of the Muslim faith as President. We have let the Muslims totally destroy our energy independence and put thousands of people out of work so that they can grow and eventually control our country and no one seems to care.

The worst and last part of my message is our national media is no longer reporting the news without censorship of our own government. Why did Obama and his wife both lose their law licenses? Why did Supreme Court Justice Roberts agree that Obamacare was lawful because it provided humane improvements but even he knows it will destroy the best healthcare system in the world eventually.

Folks, we need a leader, we have one running for President but the media is hell-bent on destroying him and they likely will before we the people get a chance to cast a ballot next November. Donald Trump assisted by Cruz, Carson, and Carly can turn this country around. Unfortunately the army on welfare, illegal aliens, misguided youth, especially females, and the dead voters in the Red States have enough votes to win every election when the Demoncrats control the ballot boxes. It is time to stand up and fight to preserve our freedoms, I hope enough will? C Brewer
