Lt. Colonel Allen West’s Column: “The Twilight Zone”
Lt Colonel Allen West has penned his June column, Washingtoons, for Atlas. I support this man with every cell of my being. Let us get behind his candidacy and make his victory happen. He best embodies what is exceptional and best about this great nation. The RNC is not giving him one thin dime. So if you want to support the right leadership, go here and donate (every little bit helps). He was in New York last week. If you missed my coverage, go here and here. Steadfast and loyal, indeed.
“The Twilight Zone”
Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Retired)
Greetings fellow South Florida riders, South Floridians, and Americans, here we are for another monthly installment of our Wheels on the Road political assessment. This month’s title is appropriate because Rod Serling could not have written this script any better. Everyday we wake up and have to ask ourselves, “Are we in some kinda parallel universe”? Actually Serling had an episode which fits appropriately.
Therefore I googled up what has to be my favorite Twilight Zone episode, “To Serve Man”. Here is the synopsis of the episode, which was available upon search.
“A race of aliens known as the Kanamits, they were tall, land on earth and promise to be nothing but helpful to the cause of humanity. Initially wary of the intentions of such a highly advanced race even the most skeptical humans are convinced when their code-breakers begin to translate one of the Kanamit’s books with the seemingly innocuous title, “To Serve Man”.
Sharing their advanced technology, the aliens quickly solve all of the Earth’s greatest woes, eradicating hunger, disease, and the need for welfare. Soon humans are volunteering for trips to the Kanamits’ home planet, which is supposedly a paradise.
All is not well, however, when a code-breaker discovers the Kanamits’ true intentions: Their book, “To Serve Man”, is a cookbook, and all their gifts were simply to make humanity complacent, much like fattening pigs or cows before they are slaughtered.”
