2012...Here we come!

Out_in_2012_sticker

Well, here I sit. Writing another post after a long hiatus. Why have I been absent for so long? Not sure of the answer. Yes, I have been busy, but aren't we all?

I think I have been in a type of fog. Watching this county spiral out of control in so many areas. I sometimes can't believe some of the things that are happening right under out collective noses.

Let me name a few:

  • No flags allowed to fly on a child's bike ride to school
  • Being illegal is not really illegal
  • Israel is no longer our best friend
  • Food stamps and unemployment are the new stimulus plan
  • A balanced budget is partisan politics
  • Teaching sex ed to 5 yr olds?
  • Passing a bill so we can see what is in it?
  • No oil drilling for us but sending oil subsidies to South America, Really!
  • No picture of you under your clothes = no flying
  • 5 yr olds getting pat downs
  • Socialized medicine: doesn't anyone look to Canada, UK or even Massachusetts?
  • No inflation while milk costs $5 a gallon
  • Being called a terrorist by my Vice President
  • The word Christmas is no longer acceptable
  • A generation that has bought the 'share the wealth' mantra (but not when it comes to their GPA's)
  • My tax dollars WILL pay for abortions under the new Obamacare
  • Green jobs that go bust and have parts made in China
  • Labeled a potential terrorist by 'Big Sis' if your vote is based on a single issue (abortion for instance)
  • Attending a patriotic parade might make you conservative (I actually like this one, but still a sad commentary)
  • Poverty = 2 tv's, cell phone, VCR and a roof over your head
  • A President who apologizes for American to Dictators who kill and oppress their own people
Can our country survive without the 'can do' spirit of the past? Can we recover with a generation that looks to government for all needs and has forgotten what hard work and delayed gratification is? Can we make it when we are creating a generation that hates wealth but wants everything and wants it for free? More importantly, can we thrive in a country that no longer believes freedom is God given and must be defended at all costs? Will the words 'My Rights' grow to include free college education, free child care, an Ipad, a place to live and food to eat, internet access, a job, and ...? Is there still a difference in pursuing these things (happiness) as opposed to having them given to you?

We are headed into a very important year in our Country. It is time to get busy again. We must rally, we must speak, we must educate, we must contribute, we MUST VOTE. All of us must do this. Do not leave it to the few. Do not be afraid.

So, 2012, here we come.

Wow! You're posting again!

And I do know exactly what you mean by the following: I have been in a type of fog. Watching this county spiral out of control in so many areas. I sometimes can't believe some of the things that are happening right under out collective noses.

We must get Obama out of office in the November 2012 election. This might be America's last chance. And I mean that, too.

Another outrage to add to your list!
