Goober Grows a Beard

The Write Angle: Be True to Yourself: Be a Goober


Goober Makes History - The Andy Griffith Show | Apple TV


George Lindsey portrayed Goober Pyle on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Mayberry RFD” from 1964 – 1971.

Known as a lovable goofball who pumped gas, in one notable episode, Goober returns from a hunting trip wearing a beard.  Mayberry’s citizenry comments on what a great change the beard makes – that now he appears “intelligent”.

Goober takes this to heart.  Pretty soon, he become the town’s thinker, philosophizing about everything and anything — to the point where he starts getting on people’s nerves…especially Sheriff Andy Taylor.  It reaches a head when Andy asks Floyd the barber to talk to him about it.

When Floyd fails, Andy goes on a tirade, telling Goober what a nuisance he’s been, saying that people are avoiding him and basically it would be better if he went back to the way he used to be.

The supposed lesson in all this is not to get too big for your britches.  Remain who you are.

What’s wrong with this picture?

For me, I take it as Andy being threatened by a new authority figure.  Previously, he was the one the townsfolk came to for advice.  Now with Goober and his beard, Andy is no longer the top dog.  He can’t stand being usurped.

Shakespeare’s famous quote:  All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”

The moral I learned from the show is – people often force you to be who you are, through no fault of your own.  It’s up to us to break free of those bonds.  Be who you want to be.

Biden’s DOJ releases murderer of Ashli Babbitt

See the source image

Apr. 14, 2021.  Washington, D.C., official announcement.  The U.S. Department of Justice has decided NOT to press charges against the murderer of Ashli Babbitt, the only person deliberately killed during the January 6 “Save America March”.

Reason for the killer’s release:  “insufficient evidence” (despite the incident being on video) and “self-defense for members of Congress”.  (Link below for video.)

It’s been unofficially reported that Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd is the shooter.  Lt. Byrd is the Commander of the House Chambers section of the Capitol Police.   Byrd commented that he “would be treated differently because of his rank.”

What is there to say now?  Who speaks for Ashli Babbitt?  No Senators, no congress people and not former President Trump.  All silent.  Where is the GOP?  The MSM has outright condemned Ashli for her actions.

According to the DOJ, it’s okay to kill someone for trespassing.  It’s okay to nakedly steal an election.  (The reason she was there.)

I have few heroes.  Ashli Babbitt is one of those few.  She is worth a thousand times more than all of Congress put together.

Most will shake their heads, walk away and forget.  You should remember one thing.  If they can get away with killing her, they can get away with killing you.

Fahrenheit 451

See the source image

That time is here.

“Fahrenheit 451” predicts a future where books have been outlawed by the government.  Books are deemed dangerous because they provide contrary thought.  So, “firemen” are sent to burn them.

The people are kept in a permanent state of childhood with the state-run television used as their babysitter.

What Ray Bradbury’s novel described has come to pass.  While “Fahrenheit 451” focuses on the destruction of books, in today’s CANCEL CULTURE society – anything goes.

Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, micro-aggressions, white privilege, the private ownership of firearms, statues, any movie, TV show or book created before the Clinton Era.  All these things are offensive to the left and must be eradicated.  No matter how absurd the allegation, if a snowflake gets upset about something they see or hear “for God’s sake, get rid of it!”

With a faux president and another faux vice-president waiting in the wings, there is little to stop them now that Trump is gone.

We have inherited a culture of dim-witted grown-up babies.  It became painfully clear when Donald Trump was elected president.  During those four years, they did everything they could to get rid of him, using fabricated news made up by his enemies – Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, to name two.  The Dems made sure that if Trump couldn’t be removed, he sure as hell wouldn’t be re-elected.

Biden recently predicted that the Republican Party would no longer exist in three years.  He probably wasn’t supposed to say that.  Dems pride themselves on doing their dirty deeds in secrecy.

Unless those who really care about their country do something (as they tried to do on January 6th), Biden’s forecast may come true.  The U.S. will become a one-party system.  The Supreme Court packed with liberals.  Congress controlled by a Democratic majority.  And the President, whomever he or she may be, controlled by those behind the scenes, who stole the 2020 election, namely Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the DNC.

George Floyd & Ashli Babbitt

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was killed by Officer Derek Chauvin while being arrested for passing a counterfeit twenty dollar bill.  As seen on video, Chauvin used a nine minute choke hold causing cardiac arrest.

Floyd repeatedly said, “I can’t breathe,” …and the police ignored him.

In response, the black community, BLM and Antifa waged riots all summer long, continuing until the Nov. 3rd election.  Currently, Officer Chauvin is on trial for murder.

In contrast on January 6, 2021, Ashli Babbitt was shot to death on video during the “Save America March” in Washington, D.C.

New videos capture fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt during Capitol siege - DNyuz

Ashli Babbitt shot while attempting to enter the Speakers Lobby.

Authorities refuse to reveal the identity of the killer.

While it’s in dispute as to whether Officer Chauvin deliberately killed George Floyd, there is no question Ashli Babbitt was gunned down – point blank – and in cold blood.

The reaction to her death from the MSM/left?  Their calling it “justifiable homicide”.

This, despite the fact, Babbitt was unarmed and posed no threat to anyone.

We are continually told blacks don’t get a fair deal here in America and yet it is a thirty-five year old white woman who is murdered – seen on television and the Internet and no one protests.  Tell me the difference.

Going online, people are outraged about George Floyd:  “heartbroken”, “angry,” “disgusted,” “sad”.

What do the same people say about Ashli Babbitt?  “Foolish,” “dumb,” “an idiot who deserved to be killed,” and “a terrorist”.

They’re the same scumbags who talk about “white privilege”.  Where was Ashli’s white privilege when she was shot?  It’s worth mentioning – the man who killed her was black.  That’s why the MSM won’t touch this story.

74 million people voted for Pres. Donald Trump and their votes died right along with her.  They died in a a rigged election when the America I knew was bought off by China, globalism and the NWO.
