I’ve lived with a retired green beret for about ten years now. I have definitely come to understand the need for a strong defense. This started back when he sent me the dvd, Billy Jack, after watching it 50-60 times. My husband has a Scorpio Moon.
He saw me akin to the female lead in that movie at the time. Liberal and naive. At one point, Billy Jack tells the woman, if she can find anywhere on the planet where people live in peace, he will go there right away. She’s got no answer for that.
Fast forward ten years. I have a gun now, you bet! I understand if someone breaks in with an intent to hurt me, there is no way in hell anyone will get here in time to save me. I know my odds of talking someone out of rape and murder are almost nil. But here’s what’s got my attention today.
All day long, forces bang on the server that hosts this blog. All. Day. Long. People in Russia, China, the Philippines…you name it.
If they pound hard enough, I get an email. I get a lot of emails!
I have the option to trust my behind-the-scenes defense (which is serious), and turn off the notifications. Because just think about this. Ping, Ping, Ping, Ping. I am under constant attack. It wears on a person, right? But if I turn them off, I risk becoming complacent. Is that smart?
I love diversity. I’ve always loved diversity. But I would like to ban ALL of China at this point. Saturn in Sagittarius. Block foreigners, right! It’s so un-pc, but come on. Do you know how much, “China” has contributed to this site? Try not all.
I just think it’s funny to look at how far I’ve come. I used to be one of those people who thought that no defense was a good defense. It seems so moronic to me at this point.
Has you idealism collided with reality yet? Where do you stand on this?
