I read this on the net yesterday, and thought it was provocative enough to pass along. Hope it strikes a chord with you. I don't agree with all the points, but many are on target. Please comment/argue/fight/ shout..... at least read it.
Yes, I'm a bad American! I am the Liberal-Progressives worst nightmare. I am an American. I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican! I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way. I think owning a gun doesn't make you a you a killer, it makes you a smart American.I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and it does entitle you to anything. I believe that if you are selling me a BIG MAC, that you should do it in English.I believe everyone has a right to pray to their God when and where they want. My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth,Roy Rogers and whoever canceled Jerry Springer. (NOW if they can just get rid of the spin/knock offs). I don't hate the rich, and I don't pity the poor - just because. I know wrestling is fake, I don't waste time watching or arguing about it. I've never owned a slave, or was a slave. I haven't burned ant witches or have been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you, so shut up already!! I believe that if you don't like the way it is here, go back to where you came from and change it there. This is America. If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any socialist country that will have you. (As an aside, we can probably gather money to help you along). I want to know which church it is exactly where the Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton preach. Where do they get their money? Why are they always part of the problem and never part of the solution? I think that the police have every right to shoot your sorry rear if you are running from them, I also think they have the right to pull you over if you're violating a law, regardless of your ethnicity. No, I don't mind having my picture on my drivers licence. I think it's okay, and I am also proud that "God" is written on my money. I think that if you can't figure out how a ballot works, then I don't want you helping decide who should run this country. I dislike people standing in the road trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making a donation. I think it takes to parents to raise a child, not a .75 donation. It takes entire villages like this to make decent civilizations. I believe that illegal is illegal - regardless of a lawyers interpretation. I believe the American flag should be the ONLY FLAG allowed in this country. It should also be dealt with appropriately and by the U.S. Flag code, not some local politicians whim to lower it on odd Tuesdays in some month or for some stupid kid that was drinking and driving that got killed. If all of this makes me a bad American, then I am one. I want my country back and hope you do too!
