Last week I was talking to my friend Ed Furmam about the mess our country is in today. Ed is a veteran and has given a lot to this country he loves so much. Ed lives at the Glory Hole. He is very active in making sure the news "they" don't want you to hear is heard. The articles he gathers are not found in our daily newspapers. I think his efforts may be shedding a tiny light of truth into this confused world.

I had an epiphany the other night. I think I now know the reason for our country's problems. I think I know why America is in the mess it is in today. This message came to me in the most unusual way.
I was over at a friend's house this weekend and we were talking about things that could be sold to tourists. My friend suggested painting turkey feathers to look like eagle feathers. All of a sudden it hit me. That's what is wrong with America today.
Somehow, when we weren't paying attention to what was really going on, turkeys in eagle's costumes infiltrated our government. More and more got elected into powerful high offices. It started very gradually, but has really sped up the past 10 years. When did America allow this to happen? Why did America allow this to happen? Will America be commanded by eagles again?
Well, folks, only you can take responsibility for that to happen. Wake up, America. If you watch closely you'll be able to spot the turkeys.
And thank you, Ed, for your good work in spotting the turkeys.
