|Aftermath of Philippines Typhoon|
I have been sitting here ruminating on how we, as Americans, have changed over recent years, or perhaps I should say how I have changed, and allow you to decide whether you have gone down the same path. Surely all of us get Emails that we simply bypass, regarding certain items to be irrelevant. A short time ago I did just that, and then it struck me how callous I have become, thanks to my fear of the growing stream of attacks we are suffering from this corrupt administration.
The Email in question was from Fox News relating how the biggest typhoon on record has struck the Philippines, leaving perhaps 10,000 people dead. Needless to say there are many thousands more injured and homeless, without food, water, or medical attention, and still searching for missing loved ones. This is without a doubt a tragedy of the worst kind and I simply scanned the headline and moved on, and then it struck me. My God, I have changed so much with the advent of the Obama agenda that I could now casually ignore such a horrid scenario.
While pondering my current state of mind I first thought of a punch drunk boxer, pummeled so many times that he is totally confused. In time I rejected that premise, as my mental acuity is that of being extremely alert. Then it struck me, and the best comparison I can offer is that of a man in combat attacking an enemy position when his best friend falls beside him and he cannot stop to render aid, for the mission comes before all other concerns and he must remain focused.
I have no trouble remaining focused as the danger this country faces is horrendous and supersedes all other issues in my mind. That danger causes everything else to pale to insignificance.
I look back over the years just to the time that I was born. That was but three months after D Day when we began the liberation of Europe. Since then our fighting men have fought and died in many far off nations in an effort to maintain peace throughout the world; a hopeless task at best, but still they tried.
America largely stands alone and once stood as a tower of strength, offering hope to the unfortunate throughout the world. That 'Tower' no longer applies as we are rapidly being brought down by those who seek to see this nation in ruins. After D Day France was the first nation we liberated, and to show their 'appreciation' they would not even allow our aircraft to fly over their airspace when Reagan saw fit to drop a bomb in Qaddafi's front yard.
We mobilized our entire military and called up the reserves to prevent Saddam Hussein from invading Saudi Arabia and today the Saudis have infiltrated our schools where they are teaching the Qur'an to our students in text books they have financed.
Muslims attacked our Twin Towers on 911 and every day Islamic nations chant "Death to America" with Obama in the cheerleader section throwing billions of dollars to still more terrorists.
A 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti in 2010 and we were allowed to help; but only under the terms that our aid facilities not fly the American flag.
Our borders are wide open and kept that way by both political parties
In 2011 Obama flew 80,000 people here from Somalia, disallowing any FBI background checks on the grounds that they were refugees. Now those very 'refugees' want to turn this nation into the same kind of hell hole that they left.
Come to think of it, I have no reason at all to feel guilty about the suffering wrought on others by the forces of nature. I actually feel quite justified in being concerned, first and foremost about my homeland, for it is under unrelenting attack from not only the ravages of nature, but also the communists, the progressives, Islam, illegal aliens, ignorant if not stupid liberals, and our elected officials.
Long live the USA. As long as that flag still waves and I have enough strength left in me to salute it I must remain focused on what is most important here in my homeland. I am not my brother's keeper, nor he mine.
