Our Nation Is At Risk
I am generally a person whom avoid getting involved in Religious and Political Issues; however, this changed last week when I had to speak out about some religious views now I am sadly going to speak out about the madness going on in our country in the political arena. To be honest I am afraid. I am afraid of the events that are about to take place if everyone involved does not get a grip. We all are aware that politics has always been a mud fight. The politicians play dirty and it's all about the "POWER". We the American People (voters) only become involved when: (1) if it appears the minorities are invoking their rights, (2) the majority becomes the minority (either side) and last but not least (3) when racism is too strong to contain. I've heard it all: the bill is a joke, it's just another hand-out, it's unconstitutional, they are just upset because we won, they are just sore losers, he's your President,etc.,etc.. This is childish and this country needs to get a grip. How soon we forget; remember September 11, 2001? I can't! People we are still at war (actual war) and we are trying to compound it with a "Civil War." We have forgotten that in the midst of all of this propaganda, terrorist are still trying too kill us! We are still under attack! Don't get me wrong...democracy in action is a wonderful thing when it involves "adults". What's going on right now is not ADULT. Our children are watching not to mention "The World." We have stopped watching the gates and the enemy is setting up "OUR" Demise. Some are already in place and Our Nation Is At Risk .
We have become a joke and no one cares. We were once feared as the most powerful nation; now we are considered weak and petty. Why is everyone so dam angry? I have heard some rationalize that's its just another hand out for the so called less fortunate, it's a power play for President Obama, etc.,etc.. The most insulting comment is this (n) word is just giving his people more money. Let me be clear when I say this: (1) blacks have not received one dam dime because a black man is in office and (2) whites do not turn their backs on a black man/woman because of fear they are going to steal; therefore, trust the Black President has eyes on him. All of this is trivial considering the loss of life from this war, our children dying in the streets, the homeless, etc.. As for this health care bill is concerned; my concern is keeping my daddy around just a little while longer. A man I love more than this bull all of you are talking. Just because his options was too keep food on the table and a roof over his family's head or pay for the high cost of health insurance. He had health insurance that he paid faithfully for many years until he got sick and they raised his premium and eventually just dropped him and don't get me started on the "VA". This bill is giving people the option to purchase health insurance not give away free health insurance and guess what many still will not be able to afford it. Therefore, get a grip and get back to the real issues at hand and if nothing else grow up....your children and possibly grandchildren are hearing every hurtful word you are saying.
