Francis Scott Key penned the words to the song “The Star-Spangled Banner” in the 1800s that would go on to become the “National Anthem” of the United States, and it ends with the words:
The land of the free, and the home of the brave.
I am not sure these words have ever been a true description of life in the United States, but today, here in 2021, those words should read:
The land of the slaves, and the home of the cowards.
I never thought I would live to see the day where most Americans would willingly choose slavery over freedom, and then when their choices did not work out the way they thought, rather than own up to their mistake in making the wrong choice, blame the “opposition” party in government instead, all the while raising their voices to claim “I’m a victim!” believing that somehow they are entitled to certain things from their slave masters.
But that characterizes the United States of America today.
For example, a couple of weeks ago several readers brought to my attention the tragic story of a young mother who took one of the COVID shots and then ended up dying, leaving her small children behind.
It was a tragic, but typical story of the kind we have covered hundreds of times now since the COVID-19 shots were given emergency use authorization back in December of 2020.
But the reason this story gained so much traction and actually made it even into some corporate news sites, is because the obituary was written in such a way to completely blame the COVID-19 shot, and to politicize what happened.
Here is what was written in the obituary of this young mother who was in her 30s:
[The mother’s] greatest passion was to be the best mother possible for [her two children.] Nothing would stand in her way to be present in their lives.
During the last weeks of her life, however, the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates. Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom.
She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat.
But, slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away. Her passion to be actively involved in her children’s education—which included being a Room Mom—was, once again, blocked by government mandate.
Ultimately, those who closed doors and separated mothers from their children prevailed. It cost [this mom] her life.
I do not mean to be disrespectful at all to this family’s tragic loss, and there are certainly enough criminals to be tried and executed for these horrible crimes in allowing these shots to be made available to the public.
But the government did not cost this woman her life.
The text here makes it very clear that this woman knew the risks, knew that she did not need this shot, but chose to get it anyway, because she wanted to keep using the educational system to educate her children.
THAT choice cost her her life, and now her family is suffering as a result of that choice.
Did she have other choices that she could have made to prevent this from happening?
Yes, she did. She could have pulled her children out of the Satanic school system mandating these shots, and made the choice not to participate.
It may have been the more difficult choice, it may have caused her to be ostracized and criticized by those around her, including maybe some of her own family members. It may have caused her a lot of problems and inconveniences to walk away from the world system that provides education, medical care, and many other “benefits.” It may have even completely changed her life, and left her in poverty.
But ultimately it was her choice, and she rolled the dice and LOST, because she valued the lifestyle that her slave masters were offering her more than refusing the shot.
You ALWAYS have a choice!
Even if things get worse and the military or law enforcement begins going door to door by gun point to force people to get these shots, you still would have a choice: You would have the choice to die free, or live as a slave.
But as we can see with this tragic story, and many thousands of others like her, people are choosing to live as slaves by complying, and then many of them end up dying anyway.
True Freedom Comes at a Cost – It is not Free
As I have previously written in other articles over the past few months, Americans today are so far removed from any kind of real hardship, where we would have to go back to the Great Depression and then WWII back in the 1930s and 1940s to define “real hardship.”
Most Americans living today just take everything they enjoy for granted, and carry the misguided faith that these are all things they are entitled to, even if they did nothing to work for or earn them.
This is, for sure, the age of the “entitlement” crybaby generation. Even I have to deal with this generation pretty much every day through the businesses I run.
Health Impact News, for example, is my labor of love and passion, but I earn no income from it. I earn my income from my other business selling non-commodity healthy food and products.
I am able to be very selective with the advertising we run on the Health Impact News network, only advertising products and services that fit with the mission of our publishing network, and that advertising covers most of our costs to operate, but I earn nothing.
In turn, I charge you NOTHING as well. When people send me money to support this ministry, I send it back, because I do not solicit funds, and this is not a non-profit that can give you a tax break if you contribute to it.
For these reasons, I get to publish exactly what I want, seeking every day through prayer to publish just what I feel God wants me to publish that day.
But even though I do not charge for this service, nor accept any donations, I get emails pretty much every day complaining about something that someone feels they are entitled to have, because that is the way most of the rest of society works.
This generation is used to “ease and convenience,” believing erroneously that they are entitled to this notion of “ease and convenience.”
The most common complaint I get is from people who are no longer receiving the articles delivered to their inbox everyday, that somehow they feel they are entitled to.
I stopped allowing people to reply to the daily email newsletters, and now force everyone who wants to contact me to do so through our contact form here.
This is what you all are supposed to read before contacting me:
We’d love to hear from you!
But you will NOT get our response back to you if you are using one of these free email accounts from the U.S.: hotmail.com, msn.com, gmail.com, yahoo.com, because they are blocking us (as are many others associated with Big Tech, like AT&T, Comcast, AOL, etc.)
Even if you do get through to us with a gmail.com email, we will NOT respond to gmail.com, hotmail.com, yahoo.com or msn.com emails.
Some Email services out of Europe are a better choice, as they have stricter privacy commitments, and those are: Protonmail (Switzerland) Tutanota (Germany), and CTemplar (Iceland). (Note: Use of one of these alternative emails does not guarantee a response, as we are not able to respond to all inquiries.)
If you have a tip or idea for a story, please let us know!
Also, if you are not receiving our emails any longer, please see the work-around here:

If you want to subscribe to our newsletters or change your email address, you can subscribe or change your email address on this page (by unsubscribing and re-subscribing with your new email address), but not here.
Psalm 109 invoked for all comments submitted here.
But obviously this generation of ease and convenience has no time to read anything, and probably head straight to the form to air their complaints. The most common complaints are that they are no longer receiving our emails, and about 99% of the time when they complain about that, they use a gmail, yahoo, or hotmail.com email account to submit their complaint.
This is one I received a couple of days ago:
From: [I’m an entitlement crybaby upset]
Subject: NOT GETTING EMAILS
TODAY is the 3 time this week that I have not received an email.
OCTOBER 13, 11, 9 ,, this is getting to be a goddamn joke.
Why the hell do I waste my damn time signing up for a damn email,
when I never get any
I challenge someone to have the guts to respond to this..
(He got a response alright, but probably not the one that he was expecting.)
And of course he was using one of the email addresses that are mostly being blocked, mainly due to censorship of Big Tech who for some reason does not appreciate what we write about here.
THIS is the entitlement crybaby crowd that makes up most of our culture. They feel they are entitled to benefit from other people’s work, and have a “right” to blame others when things are not convenient enough for them.
Taking the time each day to visit our website to see which articles are new, or setting up an RSS feed, is just way too much work for these people.
And the ones who curse me out, are obviously failing to read that I have invoked Psalm 109 for all comments, and obviously never click through to read that.
O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, for wicked and deceitful men have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues. With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause. In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer.
They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship. Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him.
May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children. May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.
May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted. He loved to pronounce a curse– may it come on him; he found no pleasure in blessing– may it be far from him.
He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil. May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him.
May this be the LORD’s payment to my accusers, to those who speak evil of me. (Psalms 109:1-20)
I had hoped, at least for the Christians who frequently comment and complain to me, that invoking this verse would discourage the threats and curses against me, but it hasn’t. I don’t think people even read this, and so when they curse me, that curse acts like a boomerang and comes right back at them.
And the reason I am including all of this in this particular article, is because I know this article is going to ruffle some feathers and prompt people to want to email me, and I want you to be forewarned.
True freedom comes at a cost. It is not free. You have to fight for it, and make sacrifices if you truly value it.
Because that is the principle that God laid down for salvation. True freedom cannot really be discussed outside of the context of freedom from all our sins and mistakes, and that is only possible because God’s judgment against sin was satisfied with the perfect blood sacrifice of his own Son, Jesus Christ.
This is truly the ONLY freedom available to us without paying the price it costs, because someone else already paid that price.
America Has Become a Nation of Drug Addicts
I am not surprised that one of the least read articles I published this week was an article about the corruption of the medical system, and how we don’t need their poisonous products.
A few brave souls dared to comment, but of all the articles I have written this year in the Created4Health topic, this was by far the least commented on one.
I am not surprised. In 2012 when I originally published the 60 Minutes interview with Dr. Irving Kirsch who has proven that most pharmaceutical drugs are worthless, especially antidepressant drugs, we were very active on Facebook. This was back in the day where one could build a very large following on Facebook and have them actually get your newsfeed with no censorship.
Before taking our Health Impact News Facebook Page down due to censorship, we had over 1 million followers that we had accumulated in a span of almost 10 years.
When I posted this interview with Dr. Irving Kirsch on Facebook back in 2012, which is a 14-minute interview, I put these specific instructions to our Facebook followers, because I knew ahead of time the kind of responses we were going to get:
It takes 14 minutes to watch this 60 Minutes episode, and anyone who tries to comment on this before 14 minutes are up, proving that you did not watch it, will have their comment deleted immediately.
I am not exaggerating when I say that once I posted that video with a brief summary of Dr. Kirsch’s premise on placebos and antidepressant drugs, that we had to delete more than 100 comments from people (I think they were all women) who tried to comment and attack Dr. Irving Kirsch within the first 14 minutes the article was posted. Back in those days some of our posts on Facebook would elicit hundreds if not thousands of comments on certain topics.
The typical comments that we were deleting before the video had even played, were:
I know for a fact this man is wrong, because these drugs have saved my life.
I could not survive without these drugs – this doctor is very wrong.
I wouldn’t be here today without these drugs…..
Without watching the video, of course, they had no way of knowing that they were not contradicting anything Kirsch was saying, but in fact they were actually validating his research: there is nothing therapeutic in these drugs although people do feel better after taking them, because it is one’s belief in them that heals – the placebo effect.
Now I am not claiming that this placebo effect is what always produces healing with all pharmaceutical drugs, but the research is solid that it is the case most of the time with antidepressant drugs.
But America is a nation addicted to drugs, and I am not talking about “illegal” street drugs, but “legal” patented pharmaceutical drugs.
If 10,000 people end up reading this article, I would guess that about 9,997 of you have a prescription drug in your home or possession as you read this.
I am one of the few who do not, and I am guessing that there would only be one or two others who do not.
The same would be true for health insurance, including government health insurance such as medicare or medicaid.
I don’t have any heath insurance, and have not for more than 20 years. I am not even sure there would be 1 or 2 others reading this that could say the same thing.
We have been conditioned to believe that we cannot live without pharmaceutical drugs, and that our life would risk financial ruin if we did not have health insurance and had to pay the true cost of medical care out of our pocket.
But that is a false belief, and as I have written many times, it is idolatry, because God always stands by to care for his own people, and he has never once let me down, ever.
I’m sorry my fellow Americans, but I am calling you out.
The vast majority of you are cowards who prefer living a life of slavery to your medical overlord slave-masters, and you foolishly believe you need their products to survive, and then whine and complain when you don’t get your way because you falsely believe you are “entitled” to their products and their “protection.”
You have left no room in your hearts and minds to let God come in and take care of you.
But that’s YOUR fault. Stop your whining and complaining, and own up to your own bad choices, and start making some positive choices that decrease your dependency on the Satanic medical system.
