You'll Find No Wings Here!

Last week, a very good friend of mine told me that my Blog came off sounding like I was a right winger. Now, I had to stop and think about that for awhile because I actually don’t consider myself to be rightwing, leftwing, or any other wing.

I am, however, an American, a flag waving, military supporting, pledge saying American who realizes that it was only by the grace of God that I was born into this wonderful country of ours. I am also a frightened American because for the first time in my lifetime, I can feel the tremor of the strongest country in the world as it totters.

We Americans spent the post World War II years playing; we’ve all done it. We play baseball; we play football; we play basketball. We go to the movies; we go to the theatre; we go out to eat. It’s true…our need to be entertained grows every year. And while we were playing, the world whirled; the government grew, and we didn’t even know it.

And now we find ourselves in the year 2011, and this government to which we gave our blind trust spent months talking about defaulting on the ridiculous amount of debt it incurred while we were not looking.  Of course, it didn’t default, but just the talk alone can be enough to shake the market, shake it enough to wipe out the retirement funds of many who don’t even realize what is happening…and who won’t realize until it is too late.

With all of that said, I just want the people whom we elect to go to Washington, suck it up, and for once put the country ahead of their party and their politics. Maybe I’m missing something here, but it just doesn’t seem to me that it should be so difficult for people to do their jobs…nothing more…just the jobs they are elected to do. Does that seem lik too much to ask?

Have a great weekend, and May God bless America.

    Amen Fredda – Keep it up -You are just stating facts which happens to be your opinion but as it goes my opinion is the same Great job . The American people need to pay more attention to what their respective politicians are doing to them not for them !

      But Steve will they pay attention before it is too late? I do not believe the majority of Americans even know what happened this past week or that it was really of any importance.

    Don’t back down Freddia. Yes you do stand to the right, but what the person does not understand, you are a conservative Libertarian. I myself, a Liberal Libertarian. Both in my eyes are way above people who slave them self out to the Dem/Rep parties. The main difference between us libertarians and Dem/Rep is we understand history (did not get our knowledge from TV or the internet) because we did something unheard of this day and time; picked up a book and studied history. Once the I love my party Dem/Rep slaves figure out both parties are in it for them self and vote for the best person not the party America will be America again.

    Sorry but I don’t think America will ever be the same America we grew up in. It has gone to far and the road has washed out behind us. But if everyone will vote someone new into office everytime election time rolls around, then and only maybe will the politicans think they have maybe went to far. But then they will retire to the good life and not worry about it. No elected official will ever cut out the retirement now that they have it. I voted straight Libertarian in last year election. On another blog they are talking about voting for the Green Party. I know nothing about them but will find out where they stand. (I don’t agree will all the Libertarian Party stand s for)

    Fredda: Re: Social Security

    I am 81 years old, and have worked and PAID INTO Social Security for 65 years. Now, if our government was a business, the Social Security fund would be audited, any withdrawals that were not made correctly would be listed. I think the American people deserve to see an audit on Social Security to see just how much money has been taken out and used and to know what it was used for. This has been a slush fund, to be used as wanted by crooked politicians, and they should be named and held accountable. Don’t get me started!!!!
