While we were sleeping


I can’t help but get the feeling that while I slumbered
through the night somebody moved my carcass to another
country. This is not the place I grew up in.

In the place that I grew up in nobody would dare step on our
flag, not stand and face that flag during our National Anthem,
and didn’t riot loot and burn our cities.

I grew up in a place where courtesy was the norm, morals were
above reproach, and people had common sense. A place where if
somebody hurt your feelings the fight was on. This place I
came from didn’t coddle the underachievers nor tell us what
we think. We paid a hell of lot fewer taxes and got more in

In that place, at that time, we believed in God, family, and
that you had to believe in something or you’d fall for
anything. Today, people are falling for everything while
wanting to be paid for doing nothing.

Our government is corrupt, the media is one-sided, the work
force is low, and the world is thinking we have all gone
crazy. Some in our government are pushing gun control like it
is the answer to all our problems. We know some of the
current bunch don’t believe in our Constitution, but they
should at least know what is in it.

It is really quite simple; what part of shall not be
infringed don’t you understand? According to Webster’s New
World Dictionary infringe means to break (a law or pact),
to encroach on (the rights of others).

We need to get back on the right track before we pass the
point of no return.
Comments are always welcome.

    I remember when we went to high school, the football coach was Jim Fox. If you were on the football team, and you were to drop to one knee during the National Anthem, you would be sitting in the stands the rest of the season, and probably would receive an F for physical education for the semester.

    Dale Gilmour,
    he was a legend. I don’t remember anyone brave enough to kneel
    back then.
