There is a sensation millions of people crave. It is something innate and indigenous to their soul. It rests inside their cerebellum, waiting for any opportunity to burst out with joy. It is also something that never dies. It is passed along from generation to generation, like the sexual urge. It resides in beings from both genders, but seems overwhelmingly strong in males.
It is the need to ride.
It doesn't really matter what the vehicle is…it can be a horse, a surfboard, a wave, or sliding down a mountain on skis or a board or even a sled. It can be a waterski, or skateboard, or a motorcycle. For some it is an airplane, or a sailboat.
It is the ride that is the compelling need. It is the sense that you are getting the wind in your face, a rush from the danger, or just something for free.
Cave paintings from hundreds of thousands of years ago show people riding on sky chariots. Before the wheel was invented, man rode elephants, and used currents and wind to ride the ocean. I would bet many of your fondest memories are of some thrilling moment riding something scary: A roller coaster, a pair of water skis, or a tricycle.
It starts with childhood, but it grows as we mature and often becomes an obsession. Cowboys and Cowgirls spend most of their lives around their horses. Motorcyclists often go to their graves riding their "hogs".
Recently we have invented a new vehicle called the internet. It has generated a new pathological dependency called Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD). When a person cannot avoid spending huge amounts of time "surfing" the 'net', it can cause all sorts of other social and personality conflicts.
Surfing the net is not a ride. The difference is clear: The other kinds of obsessions have to do with the outdoors and nature. The freedom of being excited by "riding" the wind, the snow, or the water, is unlike hiding in a room and becoming absorbed by some amorphous electronic stimulation. The results are diametrically opposed: Riding a motorcycle or a surfboard creates a collision between nature and the rider. Surfing the net or getting stimulation from a video game is 100% self absorbed. The fundamental element of interacting with nature is missing.
Many boomers swear by "Natural Highs". We seek them and when we find them we design our lives around them. They have given birth to enormously successful businesses that serve collateral needs for clothing, equipment, facilities or entertainment. Extreme Sports has grown exponentially as the technology of "Riding" explodes. Now there is windsurfing, hang gliding, bungy jumping, wakeboarding, even rocketing into space, all with specialized equipment and supporting associations and publications.
Though video gamers will claim the "High" they get is just as fulfilling and challenging as extreme sports, they know in their hearts they still need that testosterone rush that can only come from facing certain death while going over the falls trying to catch a ten foot high wave.
My point is, healthy individuals who seek thrills and tranquility by riding their motorcycle or their surfboard are evidence that mankind has an innate desire to challenge nature. Sitting in front of a personal electronic device, fiddling with a control device or driving a golf ball into a video screen will never substitute for the need to express total and complete freedom from fear and control. The Ride will always be the elixir for that unexplainable need.
A Poor Facsimile of the Real Thing
I don't think most people have any idea how evil the hijacking of American sovereignty really is. The corrupted election of 2020, and probably others before and since, is nothing less than a war crime against humanity. But most folks have written it off as the side effects of our divided society. That it is unhelpful to argue about what amounts to sloppy bookkeeping.
"Oh my", you say! "That is a crazy thing to say! You are simply upset that Donald Trump lost the election to Joe Biden."
No, although that is the apparent result. I contend that there has been an illegal act of war that has fundamentally changed everything about our system. Can we discuss my contention without the usual outbursts of personal assault, of dismissal of evidence and conniption fits?
Let's look at what has happened since (sometimes it is easier to judge the damage done by a hurricane after it passes). On the very first day Biden took office, he wrote a series of Executive Orders that reversed most of the changes Trump had made to the normal processes of governing that had been instituted for decades. Many of which had interfered with the influence voters play in the everyday operations of the Federal Government. I say this based on the evidence that Trump won in 2016 based on his promise to "Secure the border, stop the rampant spread of terrorism, become the dominant force in worldwide energy supply, and return America to the Constitutional principles of "all men are created equal".
Since the COVID Pandemic was the focal point of the Democratic Presidential Campaign (and was the ultimate weapon against the successes of the Trump Administration), Biden made it his priority to emphasize COVID protections. He immediately
These actions were designed to pander to the fears of COVID impacts on students and the poor. Then, to reinforce his Climate Crisis gaslighting platform, he:
Biden capitulated to the Globalists who want to force America to pay for the "damage"done by the use of fossil fuels. To strengthen the nations dedication to "Racial Justice", he:
The Democrats have made it clear they favor open borders and the elimination of immigration laws. You cannot point to any legislation sponsored by Democrats that protects us from millions of unvetted, under educated, often criminal and mostly draft aged men, flooding our nation. By allowing the census to count illegals as semi-citizens, the Democrats expanded their representative numbers in Congress.
Biden then went on to:
Any objective review of this tsunami of new protocols would conclude Biden was simply pandering to the press, who would in turn quickly and loudly proclaim Biden was restoring America's Nobility. That his actions were righteous because he reversed most, if not all, of Trump's racist, bigoted and transphobic orders and memos. That sanity had been restored to Washington and American's can once again be proud that justice was restored to the forgotten and abused portions of our society.
If the objective of government was to cater to certain segments of society, that would all be true. But in America, as provided by the Constitution, the government is not designed to promote any special interests. It was designed to serve the Greater Good. How does abandoning our border do that? How does forcing anyone to wear a face diaper protect their God Given rights to be free of government impositions? How does allowing International Court jesters to place sanctions on or to arrest Americans protect our citizens? How does placing environmental restrictions on American energy developers (the same are not required in other countries) help us to improve our competitiveness?
The vast majority of Biden's Executive Orders and proclamations are geared to pander to Democrat constituencies: Unions, especially huge Federal workers; Immigrants and their employers; special interest groups like LGBTQ, BLM, and females. Can you point to one order that favors American business or agricultural industries?
By forcing the issues of gender and skin color discrimination into the arena of federal influence, the Democrats have stirred up the tribal instincts of all special interests in America, pouring gasoline on an already intense dumpster fire of racial and gender anxieties.
All the evidence that Trump's policies were actually stimulating huge increases in domestic economic activity has been collectively kicked under the rug of Progressive celebrations over their success at the polls. They brag about Zuckerberg's $500M dispersed illegally to influence the student vote. They tout how accepting unsigned, unverified and late ballots increased voter representation. They ignore the fact that electronic voting machines were all in violation of internet connectivity restrictions.
Which brings us full circle, back to the other unbelievably unAmerica activities that have occurred since the Biden inauguration: Hundreds of citizens have been processed through the Washington DC court system, charged with a myriad of trumped up charges over the January 6th protests that erupted into a riot. I could go on for days about the infestation of federal employees that provoked the violence, the Capitol Police inviting citizens into the building, then closing the doors behind them. The fact that videos of the event have been withheld from the public and especially from court proceedings is beyond belief.
Now we find out that the Washington jailers are forging COVID test results to deny detainees their day in court! I am outraged and you should be too. The first ones to object and to demand accountability should be the Biden administration. But no! Instead they are in collusion with the prosecutors, doing everything in their power to discredit and deny their ability to be heard.
The only way to understand this abomination of justice is to recognize that Biden cannot face the truth about the "Rigged" election. No one in the DOJ, the FBI or the CIA has, to this day, submitted any evidence (other than to make proclamations) that there were no anomalies to the orderly and legal voting process in the five most critical battleground states during the days after the November 3rd election in 2020. Indeed, the evidence is mounting that there were enormous violations of election propriety in Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan.
When will Congress hold hearings and ask, under oath, the heads of those intelligence agencies, "Can you produce any evidence that contradicts the whistleblowers, the logistical and empirical evidence, that votes were excluded, duplicated, changed or forged?"
Maybe then I will apologize for erroneously claiming that the Biden Administration is itself a poor facsimile of the real thing.
