This is a patriotic post, so if you aren’t a patriot, don’t read or comment if you don’t like the U.S. I know that our country has a scandalous past and a rocky history. But have you ever known of any country to be perfect? This whole anti-Columbus day business and flag burning in the U.S. is crap. I am not proud of a lot of things that have happened, but I am proud of so many things that did. I am so proud of our soldiers. Don’t agree with the wars? Blame the world leaders. Including our president. But please be supportive of those who have died and fought for our precious freedoms.
Like the gay marriage legislation? Hate it? Either way, we have freedoms in this country that people die because of in the middle east. Being gay here has not been easy for folks. But being gay in middle east means dying. Interracial marriage was banned here for so long, but marrying outside of one’s race or religion does not happen everywhere. In many cultures, you are forced to do what a minority of people say is right and that is what is great about our country. It may have taken a long time for things to turn around in regards to discrimination, but life is better here in the U.S. except for Christians.
I get so sick of people saying what the Christians did during the Crusades was so terrible. But as a whole, Christians have not done anything close to that in a very long time. KKK? They do not count as Christians, so don’t bring that up. But there are mass killings all over the world in the name of religion and no one says a word about it. But Christians are terrible, and Americans are greedy. What is happening in so many countries right now is frightening and deplorable, but people still complain about our great nation?!
Well, there is always a way out of here. There are many that love this country that would be happy to move here and take the place of those ridiculous people who think that our history is shameful and disgusting. It isn’t sparkly and white and unblemished, but we are a nation of compassionate and giving people. We have thousands of fire fighters, police officers and soliders and teaches who have changed the lives of countless people who have shaped this country. There are always bad politics or people in every part of the world and in every situation. But from where I am standing, I think that we have it pretty good here.
All I can do is pray for our leaders whether I care for them or not. I can pray that our country is not taken over by the religious intolerant and that with the new president, comes good things. Happy 4th to you all. God Bless everyone, and especially those who risk life and limb so that we can type however we feel about anything on to these pages without fear of persecution.
