First of all I want to thank all of you that have kept me in your prayers. Knowing that so many outside of my family care about my well-being is quite a humbling experience.
I wish I had better news to pass-on this morning concerning my re-hab, but things have not gone to plans. Two days ago I had to endure something called a manipulation. Let me explain… my right shoulder had locked-up and no matter how hard we worked at Physical Therapy we could not get the scar tissue to tear loose. If left alone, I would go through life with very limited mobility in that arm so something had to be done. Manipulation is a process whereby you are knocked-out cold so the Doctor can pull at your arm in assorted un-natural positions until he feels and hears scar tissues tear apart. Then it’s up to the patient to work that arm/shoulder as hard and as often as possible so the scar tissue does not reform. Trust me, this is NOT a procedure you want to do more than once. There is not enough pain medicine on earth to alleviate the pain!!!
Most of you have noticed that I have not been very active on the blog since I came home, but I do have a good excuse (see above). My active re-hab has allowed me an extraordinary amount of time to think about the future of this blog and how it can relate to our countries future. I am about to tell you how I would like to proceed, but I really want to hear from all of you.
Ok, let me get started… Although I do enjoy writing opinion pieces and discussing those opinions with others that are like-minded, I’m seriously questioning if I’m having any positive effect. Other than an occasional drive-by progressive/marxist that reads our comments, we are mostly speaking to the choir. My friends here are like-minded in almost all areas that conservatives normally agree on, so we are not changing anyones way of looking at problems. It’s NOT us that needs to be convinced, it’s those on the other side that need the education. With that in mind, I propose that it would be more productive for us to go to the enemy and change their way of thinking. I know this is not a new idea, but I’m convinced that the time has come to embrace this idea. Hell, they have a 50 year head-start on us, it’s time for us to get into high gear and turn this ship around before the progressive/marxist machine runs us aground and sink us.
This blog can be used as an info sharing depository. Some of us have a lot of experience trying to talk with progressive/marxists on other blogs, so we can help the newbie get through the mine-field you can run into on those other sites.
Anyway, I really want to hear all of your opinions so please don’t be shy.
