Done, done and done…
You have heard the old saying, “Can't see the forest for the trees?”
Which obviously has to do with the inability to focus on the whole picture because of simple framing of one thing at a time.
Today, however, the problem is the reverse.
Many on the left can't see the trees for the forest.
That is, the value and contribution of the individual is seemingly completely lost in some grand scheme to bring everyone into some societal melting pot where national borders, languages, viewpoints, and our natural abilities are glossed over and put into a blender to shred uniqueness into some bland and dull uniformity of thought and action where globalism and mob rule are held up as the standard to follow.
For an excellent example of what I am trying to say, there is a short story, 'The Telegraph Poles,' from G.K. Chesterton's book, Alarms and Discursions, published in 1910, which may prove enlightening.
Here are a few passages from that work: “The instant we came to the straight pole (telegraph pole) we could see that the pines were not really straight. It was like a hundred straight lines drawn with schoolboy pencils all brought to judgment suddenly by one straight line drawn with a ruler. All the amateur lines seemed to reel to right and left… Compared with the telegraph post the pines were crooked-and alive. That lonely vertical rod at once deformed and enfranchised the forest. It tangled it all together and yet made it free, like any grotesque undergrowth of oak or holly.
'Yes,' said my gloomy friend, answering my thoughts. 'You don't know what a wicked shameful thing straightness is if you think these trees are straight. You never will know till your precious intellectual civilization builds a 40-mile forest of

And that vision from over 100 years ago is precisely what we are witnessing coming to fruition today.
There are some who consider themselves 'intellectuals' who are dedicated to producing a society of obedient robots out of formerly productive, inspired, and unique humanity. They are attempting to mind-meld us all into one universal mindlike cybernetic Borg entities from a
You hear hackneyed clichés from the likes of such people who adhere to these dangerous doctrinaire ways of thinking. Things along these lines: “It takes a village.”
Yet, last time I checked, villages also had drunks and criminals, drug addicts and ne’er-do-wells, also.
Didn't it take a village to create them as well?
Now, it's the newest catch phrase: “We're all in this together.”
Heck no, we're not.
There's the restaurant owner in New York, being put out of business by a commie mayor. Now,
guy with the restaurant-he's suffering.
Not so, the political elites in his city who are reveling in their dictatorial powers and publishing 'Rules for Thee, but not for Me' edicts.
No governmental employees at the federal, state or city level are being put out of business to any great extent…yet, inner cities are on fire in Democratic party-controlled districts and officials on the left seem perfectly content to let them burn to the ground for 'the cause.' Meanwhile, frantic parents are going out of their minds, trying to find a school to send their children to this fall so they will not be left behind education- wise and have opportunities for gainful employment when they graduate.
Enough is enough!
Americans are done with lefty doomsday agendas.
They want it out of their faces, and to be left alone!
And they want you to know the following: We need to get back to work.
Gimme don't live here anymore… he died yesterday!
And the illegal aliens all the Democrats tried to drag across the border?
They won't be showing up at the family reunion this year.

Film at eight.
Get it yet?
What you're selling,
is buying anymore.
Your social deconstruction, and Bible-burning and history- changing and monument desecration isn't going anywhere but a deadend
And the only place a deadend road goes to is…oh, yeah…a dead end!
So, you lefties, go consult your tea-leaves, or have your palms read, Or see your oracle or whatever it takes for you to finally figure it out.
Because we are So-o-o-o-o over you!
And this pandemic/rioting sell-by date has expired.
No trades, no cash refunds. Done.Done, done…done, done, done…done, done.
Like Humphrey Bogart famously said in the film,
Treasure of the Sierra Madre, “No trespassing.
Keep off the grass. Get it?”
