Just because you can…doesn’t mean you should

Today I was pondering a subject to blog about today. Rant or Rave? After all this is all about ME and what I think. And it struck me. Perhaps that is indicative of the problem in the world today. Since I am only versed in America and not the World… I shall limit the scope to just the USA.

Our liberties and rights are being chipped away...


It wont matter what I say….someone out there in the blogsphere will turn it around and spit excerpts back twisted to suit them…  I don’t care…as I said its about what I think…not you.

Yeah I know thats somewhat harsh…. after all we elected him…and Congress in office.. *sigh*. (“We” meaning a majority, I mean I certainly didn’t vote for him).  We all make mistakes. Now how to get them out and put someone in, that GETS IT. You have to represent the people, not dictate to them.… No wonder his ratings are plummeting… “We” want change meaning an improvement in our way of life,income etc…. Let me tell ya…I am not liking the “Change”…

The keen observer might begin to wonder how this relates to the title of this rant, or to “All about Me”..

It is because you voted for people on the premise that YOU would get something “good” in return.  An example might be a promise of lower taxes…better schools….better healthcare….

All of that comes with a thriving economy, a healthy country.   But you forgot to vote in somebody that doesnt take bribes… i.e EARMARKS, who would vote on a bad (for the country) bill, just to get something for their local voters…   YOU dont care, you get a zillion dollars for that library. But YOU don’t care how its paid for….

You, yeah YOU, get health insurance…finally…I know its tough…..Everyone needs good healthcare…. Not sure if I should have to pay for your healthcare though…..wait….wrong… I am sure that I dont want to pay for your health care.  Especially since my children are going to be paying for todays healthcare…with a 2000 page bill that was passed against the will of a Majority of American voters… (Yeah we haven’t forgotten that one yet…)

Someone interrupt President Obama’s 6th vacation this year to tell him we are still pissed about that….

Speaking of ME, I wish the Administration would think more about ME… and MY way of life….that I LIKE..and want to keep.  I want my Government to protect me and mine, my country and my way of life that I deeply cherish.  It is failing MISERABLY at that. Everyday we are invaded by ILLEGAL ALIENS..that some say have a RIGHT to be in our country…and have a RIGHT to our tax dollars…

Changing the demographics of entire communities….I bet there are some unhappy people in THOSE communities.  I am not a racist, but dont give RIGHTS to those who have none…or few beyond traditional human rights. But not American Rights…because they are not Americans…

Change is always welcome…change for the better… but good or bad when things change too quickly it stresses people. (Translation: People get pissed).  Someone tell me why its wrong to want to protect our way of life?  Whats going to happen the first time a subset of a community wants Sharia law to be followed superseding tradational law….like in Britian..link here. If Muslims in America want that….then they should really read the Constitution…..  Sooner or later it will be desired by some, and be tested in court…. Wonder which side of that argument the “American Civil Liberties Union” would be on……

Dont bother telling me those are “Arbitration panels…and not “real” courts…  I DONT CARE…

Here is something else thats “telling” about changes in America…

Atheists challenge road side memorial crosses Why? They have been there 10 years….  uh Well its because we have to keep the perception that the Government is supporting a particular religion down…

Really…did it bother you? I mean personally? I am a part time Christian, I admit it… but geez…what if those officers WERE all Christians?   Next thing you know they will stop the Government from putting Religious symbols on fallen soldiers graves at Arlington….  I doubt any REAL athesist is offended by ANY religious symbol…just a symbol to them, while it gives great comfort to the other 76% of America that are Christians….. go figure….

Just imagine an America with laws based on peoples attitudes instead of grounded in the guidance of a religion…  I mean who determines whats right or wrong…whats moral….  OH  a consensus (or even more frightening..CONGRESS)   … but peoples atitudes change… At least Gods laws/rules dont change.  Murder is still wrong… (this week).

Just because something is “Religious” in background doesnt mean its BAD.  What IF instead of big Crosses for memorials they had used BIG pictures of gravestones…that had the symbol? Would they complain?  Its just silly.

I am all for keeping the Government out of my life and not forcing a State Sanctioned Religion on me. But I dont want my Government prohibiting my religion.  For that matter I am somewhat appalled at the lack of support Christians get in America compared to other religions.  Despite the Atheists,  those laws based on Christian beliefs, has guided America for 300 years….and until recently America has done pretty good.  But the “ME” generation.. it doesnt matter about you, just me…and I dont like it. so you cant do it…

Its unfair to ME that you have a nice car…..Its not right to ME that your house is nicer than mine…

Its not fair, YOU have more money…Give some to ME.

When will it stop?  Only when ME becomes WE.  When we once again become “United” to protect our way of life instead of the multitude of individual “ME’s”.  I think the horrible evil people in Congress have a problem representing individuals.. so they select the “ME’s” that benefit themselves..instead of US.

I dont care who you are….Democrat,Republican or Martian… But you have to be realistic about what the country can afford economically and what Americans will tolerate. They wont tolerate the lack of representation any longer.
