On America Adrift

"We must stop waving our extended arms in an effort to balance ourselves as we tiptoe along the edges of the Constitution in an effort not to upset weak-kneed appeasers with our unflinching belief in the ideas that made our country different and, yes, great. Are we losing America to the inevitable onrushing tide of history? No. But we’re in a storm, the mast is broken, the compass is off , and there’s a damn big hole in the boat. We have allowed ourselves to be manipulated by others, many of whom want to impose their culture and laws under the manufactured utopian idea that all all cultures are equal and most of them are better than America.
America is a culture, it has a culture, and it must be recognized….We must not allow our collective memory to fade or morph into trendy revisionist versions of political correctness, which become a substitute for the truth.” - Roger Ailes, Chairman Fox News

    2. Odie, I would have swore you were already on the sidebar till I went add a link and noticed you weren't there, so I quickly remedied that.

  2. As I encounter strangers with the opportunity to engage in conversation with those of my generation, there is one constant thread that runs through the conversation and it's this. This is not the America I grew up in. Government is out of control. We have become a welfare state as if giving away money to those unwilling to work for it, will somehow make us morally and ethically superior, while at the same time being told America is no more exceptional than any other country, culture or people. Everyone I have met revealed a sadness in how far America has fallen from that shining city on a hill, a beacon of freedom and liberty for all individuals seeking to work for a better life for themselves, their families, their communities and their country.

    1. You would be surprised, Rob, at the same sentiment I hear from people my age nowadays. An awakening is starting......and we must keep it going.
