It is so sad that for many the Fourth of July has been demoted to a day off, an excuse to spend lots of money shooting off fireworks (which began in our neighborhood two weeks ago!), a reason to drink, a time to denounce the ‘racist’ holiday and disrespect the president when so many people over the years have sacrificed and died to give all the people the right to sit in a coffee shop, sipping there fancy-pants lattes and complain.
In many respects we have turned into a very selfish world with all the ease and conveniences of living here. Yet, there was a poll mentioned on the radio that said so few people who live here and enjoy what they have are not proud of their country. Makes you wonder why they don’t pack up and moved to whatever wonderful paradise can rival America. Hey, I’d help them pack!
Naturally, I am not proud of some of the recent actions of various politicians who are using their office to further personal agendas rather than respect the voters who gave them the chance to respect them.
My son and I were able to follow the route of the Band of Brothers in Europe almost ten years ago and visit many of the battle sites and the beaches involved in D-Day. We saw pictures of the men involved and the troops. So many of the young men sent into battle were eighteen or over. One can’t help but compare those MEN to the same-aged young men of today who take up rocks and bricks to fight and try to destroy whatever doesn’t please them in their own country instead of standing up and knowing their history, being proud of how far we have come over the two hundred years plus and BECOME a man.
We do have our problems but America is still beautiful and could be more so if people respected the truth and stopped pushing personal agendas without thought for truth and character.
“If you place a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will immediately try to scramble out. But if you place the frog in room temperature water, and don’t scare him, he’ll stay put. Now, if the pot sits on a heat source, and if you gradually turn up the temperature, something very interesting happens. As the temperature rises from 70 to 80 degrees F., the frog will do nothing. In fact, he will show every sign of enjoying himself. As the temperature gradually increases, the frog will become groggier and groggier, until he is unable to climb out of the pot. Though there is nothing restraining him, the frog will sit there and boil. Why?
Because the frog’s internal apparatus for sensing threats to survival is geared to sudden changes in his environment, not to slow, gradual changes.
This is worth reading, however it will upset you.

TODAY, AMERICA IS MUCH LIKE THE FROG….
All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach. I’m not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and just how much “progress” has been made by Islam in the US these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to an average 75 year lifetime!
