Muster RIGHT Here - with Sgt Mack

At EASE!!! Rest!!! We need to rest a bit b-4 the push for November, so I wanted to say something a bit introspective, today.

Every day of our lives, we are faced with decisions. From the earliest, such as sleeping on back, side or stomach, thru what clothes to wear, Coke or Pepsi, paper or plastic, Ford or Chevy (etc.) to more monumental, life-changing decisions like "Shall I obey my draft orders or be a draft dodger?"

Amazing as it may seem, thousands of us obeyed the draft notice simply because we couldn't imagine failing to "do our duty" to our country & our families. It wasn't much of a choice.

"Shall I disgrace myself & family & become a fugitive or chance getting my butt shot off?" At the time, it seemed a simple choice, not because I was a hero but it was what my upbringing dictated.

Who knew that the people who were running the show were criminally incompetent? But that's a story for a different class. This is just about making choices.

Many people think that they escape having to make a choice by doing nothing. WRONG!!! Basically, the choices are: This, That or Abstain. Doing nothing is also a choice.

Most of the time, it is the WRONG CHOICE!!!

"What shall I do about defending my home?" The problem, here, is that if you do nothing, you allow the choices about the safety of your family to be made by the criminal who breaks in, with evil intent. I'd rather trust my own judgment.

"Shall I vote? I don't like any of these bozos!" Once again, abstaining allows other people to decide your fate. Maybe your guy/gal won't win but failing to vote surrenders your (otherwise) inalienable right to gripe about the outcome.

When I was learning to play baseball, my father & all of my coaches, repeatedly, said, "Better to go down swinging than to stand there with the bat on your shoulder & be called out on strikes."

Non-baseball people may be more familiar with this truth: "There are 3 kinds of people: Some MAKE things happen, some WATCH things happen & some ask WHAT HAPPENED?"

The first is the only one who should sleep "the sleep of the just", having (for better or worse) BEEN INVOLVED!

Get informed. Get active. Take your best shot. "Been there, done that!" is a lot more satisfying than, "Been there, saw that & wish I'd done SOMETHING, ANYTHING!!!"

God bless y'all & all of our guardians. Quiet shift &/or tour to them & God bless America!!! Amen!!! Hoooahh!!!

Sgt. Mack, out. Leaving the air & closing station.
