The founder of Dubai, Sheikh Rashid, was asked about the future of his country, and he replied, “My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I ride a Mercedes, my son rides a Land Rover, and my grandson is going to ride a Land Rover…but my great-grandson is going to have to ride a camel again.”

 Why is that, he was asked? And his reply was, “Hard times create strong men, strong men create easy times.   Easy times create weak men, weak men create difficult times.   Many will not understand it, but you have to raise warriors, not parasites.”

 And add to that the historical reality that all great empires…the Persians, the Trojans, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, and in later years, the British..all rose and perished within 240 years. They were not conquered by external enemies; they rotted from within.

 America has now passed that 240 year mark, and the rot is starting to be visible and is accelerating. We are past the Mercedes and Land Rover Years….the camels are on the horizon.   

 Last November Americans voted for Biden and demonstrated either that they know nothing about history or they think we should all be riding camels….
