8 thoughts on “Nickelback – What Are You Waiting For?

  1. Thanks, GrayRider, this stirred up a lot inside me.

    “What are you waiting for?” Such a big question this song asks. Awful as this sounds, I think the “I don’t want to be a martyr” syndrome plays in. I have seen it in myself, occasionally self-censoring, and at times inwardly chanting: “I don’t want to die,” and consequently making some cowardly choices to stay under the radar to not be killed or arrested. I justified these choices, counseling myself that I’m of more use out of jail than in, and can accomplish more alive rather than dead. So there is guilt for not having more bravery to go the full distance. Even so, I sometimes dance out on that limb or place head on chopping block and lo and behold, somehow survive. So I am increasing my courage. Many are willing to die for what they believe in. I see that as an extremely high act of integrity and something I can aspire to reach for. On one level the song made me feel guilty; on another it was extremely motivational. Even grandmothers need to grow a spine and like the commercial says, “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” More help with this than I ever imagined comes to me from these trenches. I’m starting to believe I have it in me.


    1. galen, you are in place doing that which needs to be done at this moment…..job one is to help open eyes to the fraud that has plagued us for a long time…that is (imo) what this site is all about. Do not entertain ‘guilt’ …it is wasted energy. “Go the full distance”….you may face that as the rest of us may as well ….I have seen what an angry grandmother is capable of doing….haha….you are doing fine…..besides I would ask that songwriter ‘What are you waiting for?”

  2. Agreed Galen, if it weren’t for this site, I’d still be @ WRH being fed the usual B.S. not knowing any better. Henry’s site is that beacon of truth shining through the darkness of lies and deceit. It’s amazing that TPTB have allowed it but they don’t fear truth getting out because they know there isn’t a damned thing we can do about it. (other than revolution). “Ya say ya want a revolution.” “Alright”!

  3. The top, eh Nickelback? Well for me it isn’t the “makin’ it huge” crapola you guys have “waited for.” For me “the top” is Heaven, and what am I waiting for (besides Americans giving up giving in to evil so we don’t get the “meet the new boss same as the old boss” “revolution”)? For Americans to “make America great again” by fighting, resisting, and overcoming evil–and accepting Christ as Savior.
