When on an errand this morning I went by the hospital
and saw this crane working which got me thinking. I
bet somebody would argue whether it was going up or
down. And that progressed to the following.
I’m beginning to think the rest of thw world sees
those of us who live in the U.S. of A. as an unhappy
bunch of campers. If they have access to televisions
and/or computers, I’m sure of it.
One can’t open a newspaper, turn on the tv news, or
get on the internet and not run into stories telling
of groups of people offended by what other groups say
about their group. what someone said about our country,
proclaim to hate our flag, or express their political
The pro choice mock those who believe in the sanctity
of life while pro life declares those who disagree
murderers. Americans of certain religions are besieged
by members of different religions and those who don’t
believe in God at all.
Illegal aliens protest over their imagined rights,
unskilled workers want $15 an hour, those with a
socialist mentality want free everything, and rich
spoiled thespians are threatening to leave the country
if certain candidates are elected.
Sure, there is the occasional feel good story about
someone who goes the extra mile and videos of cats
acting crazy, but the majority of what the world sees
and hears about us is pretty grim.
If all these offended, slighted, unloved people would
take a minute to use their head for something other
than a hat-rack, they would realize we live in the
greatest country in the world. We have freedoms and
guaranteed rights that some don’t.
And while these groups may feel they are in agony,
they are breathing. They aren’t jailed or killed for
their beliefs and have the freedom to tell the rest of
us how offended they are. Nor do they realize the
government is not the answer to what ails them.
Look in the mirror people. If you aren’t happy it is
not our fault, it is yours. When you feel you deserve
$15 an hour for an entry level job because you lack
the ambition to better yourself, look in the mirror.
You may not be happy here but some of us are.
