I feel odd, not burned out but as if I’m in Limbo waiting for the crash to happen. Something like my Army FTX (Field Training eXcercize) after I’ve dug my foxhole, squared away my gear and I’m waiting for the attack or for one of the idiots from Brigade to say we just got gassed and we get to sit in MOPP gear for the next 6-12 hours. Some Lousy training scenarios from signal officers that equate being miserable as good training. The officers get to check the little box and the soldiers are miserable, tired, smelly and annoyed and then go do their MOS jobs and the General get’s his Internet and Sat. TV and his aides and gophers set up the Laptops and update the Power point presentation. I send out my guys to camouflage Porta-potties as we can’t dig real latrines because of the environmental wackos and hang up garbage bags for recycling! I know it’s BS, heck the officers knew it was BS but we have to check the block and play the game!
I feel the same way watching the MSM, Banksters and politicians playing the same game except the hope the the people are to dumb to realize it all BS. It’s like a poker game of No limit but they can always get more chips from the “house” for free but I have to sign over my future and my children/grand children’s future to match the bet. Just taking all my chips is not enough, and the rules change during the game so that the guy that has the “Big Stack” at the table can sucker a few more to try and get some chips. Who would play a game of poker like that unless they already hocked everything including their families future unless they felt they had no choice?
That’s why prepare so I never have to play the game again. I’m very tired of the game!
