The fate of the Nation hangs upon the votes each of us cast.

The Wind Cries Mary” (1:31)

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. Today we’re down in Cassadaga, FL, visiting Madam Shylock to see what the future holds. Hello, Madam Shylock, and welcome to ‘Pulse,’ the place to be on your shortwave dial.”

“Oh, that’s right, isn’t it? Your mayor torched your TV station because she likes to see city kids graduate from high school not being able to read, write and do arithmetic, let alone speak proper English. You know, she’s a real work of art. Our nation’s – that would be any nation’s – kids are our future and if we can’t even teach them the enjoyment of reading…”

“Tell me about it.”

“You got the envelope with the cash from your editor?”

“What? Oh, yes, here it is. I’m sorry, you caught me off-guard: I thought we were having a polite conversation.”

“We were, but you still have to pay. Now don’t look so dejected. By the way, Henry is inside having a snack and I’m sure he’d like nothing more than to talk with you. Why, speaking of the devil, here he is now. How did you like your snack, Henry?”

“Delicious, as always; thank you, Madam Shylock. Hello, Roving, long time, no see.”

“Hey, Henry, how goes it with you? Heard from Zyklon lately?”

“Matter of fact I was going to call you this morning on that very subject because, you see, I talked with him last night.”

“No way.”

“Yep, and he made a very interesting observation about human behavior, specifically, Americans behaving.”

“Now this I’d like to hear. Tell us about it.”

“Okay, I will. Let’s say we go inside and talk on the table; would that be okay with you, Madam Shylock?”

“Oh, yes, forgive me my bad manners; please, right this way.”

“So, how is Zyklon?”

“He is fine, thank you for asking. He’s a great observer, you know. He taps into one of your military spy satellites and views all of your political rallies. He finds them very entertaining and let me tell you, he doesn’t like that Biden guy at all – calls him ‘sneaky’ – but he reserves his most disdain for Harris, calls her the biggest liar since, well, what can you say about someone who puts innocent people behind bars?”

“Not a heck of a lot, that’s for sure.”

“Zyklon asked me to ask you, since you put your life on the line while you were in the military, how do you feel about people falsifying votes; I mean, really?”

“First of all I feel sick to my stomach. Ever see pictures of the D-Day landings? There’s one of our troops just emerging from a landing craft where our boys are running out and up the beach. Well, this one guy doesn’t take but two steps and goes down [at 1:17 (2:29)], quick and hard so you know he bought the farm. I’ve often thought about that kid; having a sweetheart in high school; joining-up; going through Boot Camp and then more training in England; waiting in line to get on a troop ship and then climbing down the netting to the landing craft; nervous and scared and just thinking about doing his best and not letting anyone down; and then he’s there, the ramp goes down and he’s like the third one out and BAM! He gets hit and goes down, hard and for good. Not even a chance for a last thought because his last thought was his brain telling him that he’s dead.”

“He paid the ultimate price.”

“Right, and because he took that bullet from a German machine gun some other guy made it past and lived all the way to V-E Day. Lived to fight on and win the war, just because that kid took a round that was meant for someone else, but he took it and is buried in any of our National Cemeteries scattered around the world. So you have to ask yourself: why did he die, what did it get us, his death?

“Good question.”

“I’ll tell you what his death bought us: it bought us another decade, year, and second living in a country ruled by the CONSTITUTION, is what that kid’s death bought us. Him buying the farm paid for your and my freedom which is exercised through fair and honest elections. It’s the one and only reason I volunteered to serve in our military, by the way.”

“So what’s your take on this election?”

“You want the truth so I’ll tell you the truth. Messing with votes is treason* and we shoot traitors. You want to stop this voter fraud? Catch one person doing voter fraud and send him to the firing squad which will stop future voter fraud in its tracks. It’s the only way: stand up for America or we might as well take the memory of that kid dying all alone on that machine-gun-swept lonely beach in Normandy and flush it. What did Zyklon have to say?”

“He said that the election was voted on before Nov. 3. He said that Trump out-scored Biden at least three hundred to one. He said Nov. 3 was just a formality to close the deal and he is pretty upset with all those who hate America and Trump. He also said they don’t know how lucky they are and it’s about time for patriots to fight back.”

“Well, Zyklon is sure right about fighting back because if I ever come across someone who cheats on any American’s right to cast a fair and honest ballot, well, all I can say is fair warning and let it go at that.”

You know, Roving, you and Zyklon have a lot in common: you have integrity and I like that.”

“And I like you, too, Henry. I’m sorry, Madam Shylock, but we’ve run out of time.”

“Oh, that’s okay. Here, let me return the envelope with the money; you can use it next time.”

“Why, thank you and so, on behalf of Henry and Madam Shylock, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Great show, don’t you think? Burger time: my treat.”

It’s the ignorant vs. the enlightened; the believers in freedom vs. those who really don’t know what the heck they are doing except acting as if Jane Fonda‘s being used by the enemy, the CCP, so, yes, if guilty of falsifying votes turn them over to the firing squad.]
