Great day to be great

f 099

Independence Day is drawing to a close and soon the smoke
will clear and the air won’t have that familar scent. Many
people will return to work tomorrow when things regain a
semblance of normalcy.

We also noticed that some have a campaign going that
basically says America isn’t great and other such nonsense
while having the day off like everyone else. If you hate it
so much, go to work in protest.

Some of us do believe America IS great for many reasons.
If you’ve done any traveling in our country you have seen
some of the most amazing scenery and helpful people in the

I saw somewhere that if you make $32,000 a year you are
among the top 1% of wage earners in the world. Yet here
that is considered poverty level. We have smart TVs, smart
phones, and most of us have at least one car or truck. Our
homes are air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the
winter too.

We don’t have to walk 5 miles down a dusty dirt path to
get a bucket of polluted water to bring back home to use
for cooking, cleaning, and drinking.

We have charities one can donate to or volunteer for that
cover just about all illnesses, natural disasters, and bad
luck that the good Lord can throw at us. But yes, we do
have some problems.

A growing number of people do not respect the flag, anyone
with a differing opinions, and others who “offend” them. To
those I would say, if it’s so damn bad here why don’t you
move someplace else?

Our country is still great, we just need a government that
does its job. Get rid of political correctness, get someone
elected who has read the Constitution and understands it,
and stop making excuses. Members of Congress aren’t
concerned about approval ratings because they know that
even with the numbers in the basement, they’ll get another
term. And that’s just the way it is.
Comments are always welcome.

    Rifleman III,
    thanks for the reblog.

    depends. If you are married and have 4 kids the poverty level is
    $32,465. For just a couple the poverty level is around half that.
