What Has America Become? (from JSumm)


Shamelessly stolen from my buddy, former Guest Blogger Jim, who has been operating his own site for quite a while now....Drop by & give him some love.

Have you seen this? A friend put this on the bulletin board at work this week, and another guy took it down before I could copy it. He said it was discriminatory and incendiary. Whatever; you can judge for yourselves.

It was written by KEN HUBER to the editor of the IOSCO COUNTY (MI) NEWS on June 9th of this year. KEN, truer words have rarely ever been spoken. thanks for pointing out what should be obvious.

WHAT HAS AMERICA BECOME?

Editor,

Has AMERICA become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard?

Let’s see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us it’s just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're a racist and if a black dislikes whites, it's their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word GOD in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in AMERICA, we now rewrite them; we got rid of the Communist and Socialist threat by renaming them Progressives; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but if you burned an AMERICAN flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the Internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in AMERICA and they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it's wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don't want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when is supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the Land of Opportunity is now the Land of Hand Outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill is that neither President did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; and tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign. What has happened to the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

Man, if that doesn't capture the essence of what is currently happening in AMERICA, nothing does. Fresh back from vacation in Michigan, I was almost completely crestfallen by all the whiners that have inhabited my state. If I only had a dollar for every time I heard “The government isn't doing anything for me/us.”…' KEN shows there are still life forms capable of intelligent thought on the Pleasant Peninsula.

Further input from me:

Jim, old buddy, your home state of Michigan is a wreck. Massive unemployment, union corruption, riddled with Liberal Democrats, and infested with the largest Muslim population in North America, a population burgeoning with radical Islamists and home-grown terrorists. Michigan has become America's England; a former powerhouse and industrial giant hit with industrial shutdowns and liberal socialism screaming for handouts and bigger government, and letting their Islamic minority take over by fiat. I almost said Michigan was becoming the American France, but California has that dubious distinction, so liberal and fucked up that we may as well sell it back to Mexico and let them worry about it......except the broke corrupt Mexicans don't have any fucking money to buy it.
