A day trip to Deming

I took a ride into Deming this morning knowing full well I'd never secure a site with hook-ups when I got back, but that's ok. I needed to find a mechanic to replace a vibrating driveshaft universal joint (done) and make an appointment for a long overdue eye exam (done).

The mechanic I found this morning, JT's Auto on Country Club Road, had an opening this afternoon to replace the u-joint so I filled out the morning wandering about the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum for a couple of hours - not nearly enough time to do this wonderful museum justice.

This is Easy

Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.
