A Small MICHIGAN NEWSPAPER EDITORIAL….. short and to the point…..
WHAT HAS AMERICA BECOME?
Has America become the land of the special interests and home of the double standard?
Lets See: If we lie to Congress, it’s a felony and if Congress lies to us, it is just politics:
If we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black person dislikes us it is their constitutional right;
the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and the do almost nothing for the victoms;
in public schools you can teach that homosexual is OK but you better not use the word God in the process;
you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to kill a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them;
we got rid of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea;
If you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned the American Flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Ammemdment right.
You can have porngraphy on TV or the Internet, but you had better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas:
we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people;
we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it’s wrong to use an animal.
We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work;
we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology;
we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games;
the land of opportunity is now the land of handouts; the similiarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.
And how do we handle a major crisis today?
The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign. What has happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave?
