The First Gas Station In Reno
When you get off I-80 at Exit 13 to go to downtown Reno, your gas tank might need a quick refill after the long drive through California to the border. Right there, perfectly located, is the Chevron at Sierra and 7th, where the Nevada gas is even more expensive than in California.
A plethora of Californians see $5 gas being sold at those pumps and miss orange man and wonder when we will be done with the illegitimate regime.
Orange man wasn’t perfect. He let corona communism take root under his watch and continues to preach the vaccine. Orange man had flaws. But orange man was better.
And the ability to say no to what is easy at that Chevron and to drive a block deeper into Reno, where gas is a buck fifty cheaper, reminds one of what life was like in California when the orange man occupied the White House. A little freer, a little more money, and a little cheaper.
All it takes is for a Californian to leave California, and it’s like a time warp to the past. But the rest of the country doesn’t have that luxury. They can’t cross a border to get orange man gas prices. We are running out of places to run to. Eventually, an animal feels cornered. But man seems to have an unlimited number of stories to reassuringly tell himself about how he’s not cornered.
There’s nowhere left to run to.
Stand and fight and fight now or you will have nothing left and no opportunity for your fight to matter. We may even have already passed that moment. I’m not certain, but I’m pretty sure we have a little bit more time.
But what can you do?
A Good Starting Place
A good start is to divide your waking hours into thirds. Work. Family. Freedom.
Diligently, every day, multiple times a week, be with the patriots and freedom lovers around you building relationships, knowing how each collided with the tyrant in life that day, protecting one another in life, advancing each other’s goals, and pushing forward freedom. Every single day. Form your core of lions. Make it a tight knit unit. Social media won’t cut it.
You need to work less. You need to spend less. You need to spend more time with family. And you need to spend more time advancing personal freedom.
Forty, fifty, and sixty hour weeks at the salt mine can’t happen anymore. This is not the time for that. Different priorities are needed now. You need to figure out how to drop some hours.
In Bad Communist Times, You Have Little More Than Family
Letting your family raise themselves can’t happen anymore. You need to add some hours to that effort. If things get bad, family will literally be all you have. And if you haven’t put in the time, that kid who you thought could “raise himself” will become the stool pigeon in your home. He didn’t raise himself. Lenin raised him.
Lenin was oft quoted in the communist lands with advice for students. “Učit sa, učit sa, učit sa,” is the abbreviated version of one famous saying accredited to Lenin that was written on a Slovak pin given to a young “pioneer,” a communist in training. It is often translated as “Learn, learn, learn,” but I find that an inaccurate translation, for learning is far too independent-minded of an action for anything hagiographically attributed to Lenin. I prefer to translate that into English as “Study, study, study.” School has always been where the next generation of communists are built. “The socialist man,” is what generations of communists theorized they could build from children if they could just get into their head early enough. The socialist man is to be the soulless building block of the communist utopia. They knew only with the most thorough brainwashing and the virtual alienation of family influence could that be accomplished.
Are You Spending Enough Time With The Kids?
Dear reader, an hour by your side, watching you negotiate the trials and tribulations of life is worth more to a child than all the benefit that 40 hours of instruction and study under the tutelage of the academy will bring to your child. Don’t let the teachers union tell you otherwise. Don’t let that know-it-all in your life tell you otherwise. Don’t let Lenin tell you otherwise.
Can your kid connect with people? Can your kid string a few sentences together? Can your kid read? Can he or she write a five paragraph essay? Can he or she do math? Great! Keep them above grade level in those tasks and keep them with you the rest of the time. Make the kids your wing men. I really mean this. It’s not going to be their life who you navigate around, running them willy nilly to this and that activity. That’s not at all what I mean. It is your life that they are the wingman to. You guys are suddenly going to be spending a lot more time together, just doing the duties of your life in each other’s company. That’s the opposite of what the lie of “quality time is.” This is quantity time, the kind of time that builds unshakeable bonds. It’ll move more slowly at first. T
