I can honestly say I have never met a Republican that has seen a handout they did not like, if they could get it!

Whatever Happened to America?

This Is The Enemy

I received a email with a lot of old WWII posters in it. They were pretty cool from an historical point of view.

 

Here is the original letter with it:

 

 I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking?

I got a lump in my throat when I read this. I “grew up” 

thinking patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way! I am glad

to see that somebody saved them.

 

Then followed a bunch of pictures.

 

Then this:

 

These were our parents. What in God’s name have we let happen?

 


  

 

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these? Whatever happened?  Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened, lack of God’s name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.

 

 

What follows is my answer to the letter:

 

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these?

 

Wow how old are you? Like 77?

 

Most Americans are 2 to 4 generations from these posters. The oldest baby boomer is really not old enough to remember this as they would have been born some time between 1944 and 1948 with the last boomers being born in 1960 to 1964 (depending on who you want to believe.

 

Whatever happened? 

 

Time happened!

 

 Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened, lack of God’s name happened, lack of personal responsibility happened, lack of personal integrity and honesty happened, lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened, lack of being an American happened.
 

What happened? Yeah, “re-education” happened. We forgot about the Nuremberg Trials. We forgot that freedom extends to even these that disagree with us! Think the McCarthy Hearings. The fact that we are suppose to care about the poor. That money was to be gotten morally.

 

How can we have respect and loyalty for a country that fails to follow what they have said was good. When that, which they in international courts said was right is not followed by them.

 

Yeah, personal integrity and honesty was shown to be wrong!

 

These of the older the baby boomers that I as one of the youngest baby boomers have  followed into the brave new future have taught me that it is not good to be honest and poor. That instead of being poor, it is better to be rich or at least well off and dishonest.

 

They have taught me that I should sell drugs and trash music and movies to the young people in order to snare their minds so that I may sell even more trash to them in order to become even wealthier. And that is the just and honest thing to do. We call it capitalism at its best!

 

They have taught me that it is right to lie to get what I want.

 

That it is alright to go to war to get what I want. And that in order to get and have a society of young people ready to go to war that I need to sell them violent death affirming video games and music and movies to prepare their mind to kill animals (anything not us) and what’s really cool I can get richer doing it!

 

By teaching me these things, the older boomers have taught me that “personal integrity and honesty” are whatever will make me richer and make me more liked by rich people like me.

 

If you really want to blame someone look in the mirror and ask yourself what is true? What do I believe? How do I act on what I believe? Are the two in agreement?

 

 

What do you believe?

Capitalism VS the Government?

Capitalism vs. the Government

 

I believe in Capitalism when I think I can get ahead of the other guy.

 

I believe in Government controls when I think the other guy might get unfairly ahead of me.

 

Can I have it both ways and still be a Capitalist?

 

OH
