As conditions here in this nation steadily deteriorate I find it most disheartening that so few seem to care.  Far fewer seem inclined to do anything to stop and roll back the progressive onslaught on the freedom and prosperity of the American people.  This is most shocking considering the fact that hardcore progressives make up only a small percentage of the population of this nation.  There are many reasons for this.

Only a small minority of American people actually know what is going on because the left has such a stranglehold on the lines of communication most of us rely on.  With the exception of Fox News, all of the major news networks spout leftist propaganda.  Newsmax and One America News are small potatoes compared to the others and Fox News is far from the Conservative powerhouse it was back in 2010, having been corrupted with progressive influence.  Here in Massachusetts the local news is pure leftist tripe.  Every time I watch I get nauseated.  So few have access to the truth. 

The progressive news media is so adept at casting everything from that side of the political spectrum in a purely positive light, while denigrating all things conservative and libertarian as pure evil.  Because of this most of the more moderate leftists consider themselves to be on the right side of every issue.

Thanks to the widespread censorship of those on the right side of the political spectrum by the social media giants, most are unaware just how bad conditions are.  Most are unaware that progressive policies have caused the carnage.

After several decades of progressive indoctrination at the college level, and a decade at the high and grade school levels, about half of all Americans do not value freedom and liberty.  They mistakenly believe socialism is superior to capitalism.

Progressives have learned that fear is overwhelmingly powerful weapon when it comes to subjugating a populace.  The Wuhan Flu pandemic was the perfect weapon to accomplish this.  It was extremely disturbing to see most of the population meekly accept the trampling of their most important rights.

The deck is so unfairly stacked against us, yet we must wake up our friends and neighbors.  Violence is not the answer.  Communication amd peaceful resistance are our most crucial tools. 

If you are a person 35 our younger all of your memories of the New England Patriots are likely memories of victory and Dominance thanks to the greatest sixth round draft pick ever made and the most important hit in the history of the NFL which combined gave you 20 years of Tom Brady. So given the potential of Aaron Rogers going to the Jets the shock of the Patriots being the worst team in their division is hitting many fans hard.

However if you are 60ish or older you remember a time when the Patriots were the worst team in New England (including the Whalers) so all of this brings us back to the days of our youth.

Given the state of the country these days perhaps it will be cathartic for us to have something to complain about.

The RedSox who used to rule the roots in New England but the last few years have seen their star fade as their stars leave.

One of the those starts Xander Bogarts is currently playing in the World Baseball Classic for the Dutch and has led their team to upset victories against both Panama and Cuba, CUBA

If only Boston could get players like that.

The Boston Celtics broke a 3 game losing streak yesterday they currently sit in 2nd place in the East right behind Milwaukee. The Celtics are still the favorite to go to the finals but while they are clearly the most talented team in the East there are at least four teams in the East capable of winning a seven game series against them.

Most importantly not a one of those teams are afraid of them.

I’ve never seen so powerful a team produce so little shock and awe among their rivals.

While the Celtics are not scaring anybody the Boston Bruins are riding roughshod over the entire NHL with an insane .831 winning percentage losing only 8 game out of 62 played.

While there still a long ways away from the record of 132 points set by the 76-77 Canadians who only lost 8 games the entire season they have exceeded every expectation that anybody had for this team at the start of the season.

If they roll though the playoffs at anywhere near the rate they will become the top dog in town really fast, particularly if the Celtics stumble.

Finally our face to face Dynasty Baseball league is winding down and my magic number for the final playoff spot is 1 with six games to go.

Just a few months ago I ruled the roost but a 10 game losing streak dropped me to the bottom of the standings.

In our 1957 League my Brooklyn dodgers are chasing the Braves and the Cardinals and we’re gearing up for the expansion draft with two teams (Cubs and Twins) joining for our 1971 league we’re just waiting for Dynasty to finalize the release online.

My team seems to be pitching heavy this season so to take advantage of that situation I am finally making the move to Milwaukee that I held off on for 1970 while my Pilots tried to repeat.

Given the teams in the league I likely don’t have a chance but it will still be a fun season.
