“Just because I’m paranoid, doesn’t mean they are not out to get me.”
We’ve all heard the saying. We all have fears and concerns that others believe are irrational.
I try to keep anxiety from getting the better of me, but two things occurred today (totally unrelated) that left a niggling feeling at the back of my head.
The first occurred earlier today, while Adam and I were sitting in the back yard with our chickens foraging through the yard. A gold truck drove by, slowing and stopping several times in front of our house, turning right, and slowing and stopping along the side of our lot, as though they were trying to see something on our land.
It disturbed both Adam and I enough that we mentioned it to his friend, Geoff, who has been helping us build a second coop for our Polish and Silkie chickens.
I forgot about it for most of the day, but learned a little while ago that my daughter saw a truck matching the description later in the day driving by our house slowly.
When we have the funds, we will be fencing off more of the yard, and putting in privacy inserts.
The second thing was this:
Look, the narrative has been all about Donald Trump and how horrible he is. I’m not saying he’s a good person. But one thing I’ve learned over the years – the media is good at smoke and mirrors to distract from what is really going on. And this wouldn’t be the first war we’ve entered to cover up a scandal.
What scandal? That the democratic primaries WERE rigged. That one of the candidates running for president has committed more crimes than Nixon resigned over. But nobody seems to care, because Donald Trump talked trash 11 years ago with some other sexist pig.
The DNC has not so much as tried to cast shadows on the veracity of the content of the emails released by Wikileaks. The response, instead, has been to blame Russia for releasing said emails. And now we are ready to start World War III over this?
Who is behind Hillary Clinton and what IS their end game?
Privacy fence. With barbed wire and locks on the gates. Because we will want to protect anything we grow or any animal we raise from desperate looters if and when we end up in the war that we simply can not win. Unless, of course, we are killed before we have time to starve.
