I keep thinking about that. Being told that it really isn’t as bad as I think. Hell if it ain’t!
When I was a little girl, we walked to school. We would get there in the morning, and there would be the morning prayer. Right after that, we all said I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag, and they played the National Anthem. I started to school when I was four (4). By the time I was in fourth grade, it was like the second elementary school. They did not say the morning prayer, or play the anthem, but by golly, the whole time I was in school, we Pledged Allegiance to the Flag. We were proud to be Americans.
Now, you get suspended for wearing anything with a flag on it. The Ten Commandments, Pledge of Allegiance, and anything having to do with our natural heritage is bad. Christians are bad. Americans are bad. Christian Americans must be very, very bad. And who the hell decided all that? That is bullshit. Plain and simple, bullshit. Since when have other people gone to live in another country, and was allowed to claim they were offended by the customs of that country, and the country changed for the outsiders? Someone tell me when. That is bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit.
Seems like it began several years ago… SuperTarget in our area, told the GoodWill people at Christmas, not to come there any more. Of course, after that, we never went back to that store, and it closed shortly thereafter. For some reason, outsiders that had moved to the United States, were offended by Christmas, Nativity scenes, and GoodWill ringing their little bells at Christmas. Those dedicated, hardworking GoodWill employees, trying to make a difference to others at a very hard time of year. They never asked anyone for anything. Just stood, ringing the bell and smiling. It was tradition. Christmas trees, nativity scenes, GoodWill.
So, in order to not to offend those, who are not from here, America changed? Bullshit. I say, if our traditions offends you, you came into this country, you know you can leave the same damned way! Every time I turn around, someone is explaining that such and such offends them. Screw it! I am offended by what people do in other countries, but I don’t move there, then expect them to change their country for me. That is bullshit. Plain and simple bullshit.
Now, they tell us that our forefathers were terrorists. Do what? So what kind of History lessons are they giving kids now a days? Speaking of kids. Since when does the govt. have balls enough to tell parents what they are or not going to feed their kids for lunch during school? The other thing about kids, is that they belong to the community, not their parents? Bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit! And these idiots put up with that? I sure as hell am glad that my Mama was who she was. She would have not only told them what horse to get on, she would have had them direct that horse, on out of the country. And my Daddy, lo and behold, I am glad that he is not here to see this shit. Daddy was gung-ho Marine. He is probably rolling in his grave right now.
And someone wants to tell me, that it ain’t as bad as I think it is? Bullshit! Plain and simple bullshit!!!
