What the hell is wrong with you, America?

What the hell is wrong with you, America? We used to be the strongest nation in the world, and our military was always ready to help any nation that faced oppression. We didn’t “invade” countries to take over land like Russia does. Thousands of American boys and women died when our country called upon them to do the “American” thing – to help less fortunate nations who were deserving of our aid. We didn’t embrace dictators like the Castro brothers. We didn’t desert our allies, and we weren’t strangled by politically correctness. We didn’t stifle ourselves because we didn’t want to offend anyone, no matter how base or degenerate they are. Jesus Christ didn’t travel the world, but some form of the Ten Commandments is found in the remotest islands of the South Pacific. Yet they are now being removed in America from any public property. What the hell is wrong with you, America? Are you ashamed that you are a Christian nation? It takes you ten years to decide what to replace the World Trade Center, a paragon that Muslims destroyed, along with 3000+ American lives. Those two towers should have been reconstructed the moment the debris was cleared away. No, you were too busy removing pork from school lunches so as not to offend Muslims. Well, I’ll tell you what – fuck Muslims! While you dick around, America, believe it or not, Arabic is now the fastest growing language in this country. What is it? You just can’t wait to be like Europe? Is it imperative that your women become slaves? Have you just plain gone crazy?

We once built the best cars in the world at a price that hard-working Americans could afford to pay. We built the best TV sets, dish washers, toasters, washing machines and driers. We built furniture that was made out of real wood. Fathers and sons went fishing in a boat powered by an American made outboard motor. Anything made in Japan was inferior and the names Toyota, Kia, and Nissan were unknown. Schwinn bikes were the ultimate, and if your parents couldn’t afford that, the Western Flyer store would sell you one that was cheaper but still great. Your mom went to Sears or Montgomery Ward and paid two dollars to put your “Santa” toys on lay-away. People normally worked six days a week, and they went to church on Sunday. Well, that is just silly nostalgia, isn’t it? The ramblings of an old man who is not hip or with it. There may some truth to that. I do know that I relish being born in the era when American was great. And I would hate to be a child starting life in America today. I don’t know, maybe the young American girls of the future will love those stylish Burkas.

I’ll tell you what happened to that America and why it will never return. Madeline Murray O’hair, a vile-mouthed atheist and avowed communist, decided that she didn’t want her kid to be “forced” to hear the word “God” in the school’s morning devotions. So she sued. And from that beginning God has slowly but steadily been removed from almost every aspect of American life. From 1620 until 1963 prayer and bible reading were common in public schools, as befits a nation founded on Christian/Judeo values. God is no dummy. He (or she) is ready and willing to provide guidance to anyone who asks for it. That is why the founders of our nation were so outspoken in asking for the help of divine providence in preparing this country for the years ahead.

But if you turn away from God, you are on your own. That is what has happened to America and it has brought us depravity and perversions that are hard to imagine, but they exist. Do you honestly believe that God condones killing live babies so that a company can sell their organs? That is barbaric on a level of Hitler making lamp shades out of Jews. Do you honestly think that God condones so-called same sex “marriage?” Do you think God looks favorably upon a nation that has turned its back on him (or her)?

There is a stronger power in the universe than man. And this power can be used for good, or for evil. In our country we have embraced evil, and rejected good. We’ve raised generations of instant gratification adults. “If it feels good, do it” is the mantra of the day. If you like the America of today, you can thank Madeline Murray O’hair. And if you are like me, you are one of the few of us who never thought we would say: “I’m ashamed of my country.” What the hell is wrong with America? Maybe it’s you and me for sitting on our asses, keeping quiet, and doing nothing.
