“I Hate America”

 

 

As I was diving to our small little town, just a short four miles, I hear my son tell me how he hates America. We have a lot of our deep conversations in the car, and even though this wouldn’t be an abnormal time or place to talk about it, I was totally in shock.

I have to say I don’t think I did very well with this one….All I could think about was where did he get this garbage from. Was he hearing it at school, or TV? Maybe it was me and all my political complaints. Could I have caused him the hatred of his country. Maybe as a society we have come to devalue what has been given us because we are born here.

The freedom we have was paid for in blood. Paved with grief and tears. Raised in hard work. Given by a Creator as a reflection of his freedom.

Our freedom’s  in the United States of America are God-given and blessed. I am thankful for and  so in love with this country.

My son thinks that because we are a prosperous country and other countries are not then he should hate the country that he is born into.  This sounds a lot like the white privilege propaganda that is out there now these days.

In this country ALL men are created equal. That means no matter the color of your skin, what faith you believe, or even what career you have, you are the same as me and I am the same as you.

We are endowed by our creator (God not Government)certain rights, and these are life, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness. This means that we are free to live a life of seeking out what is best for ourselves  without out fear of being harmed by the entities that be. Another words we are free to worship God without worry of being beheaded if worshiping God is what makes us happy.

I did explain to my son that it isn’t the government’s job to take care of the oppressed in other countries. It is my job and his job to do that. As Christians we should have a heart to want to help those who don’t have the same rights as we do. I told him that Christians in the U.S.A  ( and around the world) on average do more for those who are oppressed than any government has ever done. It has been that way for more than two thousand years and will be that way until Jesus returns.

I am so blessed to be an American. I am proud of our heritage. I am grateful for our privilege of freedom.

Take the time and express your opinion about America. Please take the time to comment and share openly.

Terry Schiavo

This is in responce to an article by Mr.Mishik on the AP

The article I am refering  to:    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/governer-bushs-end-life-dispute-becomes-2016-issue/

 

 

I think there are many things missing from this article. I remember the case very well. I have a greater opinion then the average person due to the compassion of working with those in so-called “vegetative states”. After the Martin Pretorius story it is hard to tell if Mis. Terry was awake and trapped in her body or was clearly unconscious.

Terry was semi conscious. She felt physical pain. So to remove the feeding tube was worse than shooting her in the head. She felt every second of hunger and the gruelling pain of dehydration. Let me ask, would you even let your dog die like that? The way she was killed was torture and in-humane. We are more kind to those on death row in prison. Any one who supported her death, should have to feel this same torment that she did when it is their time.

What I saw was a man who wanted an easy way out of a marriage and still save face. What a selfish coward.

What has this done for our future? Well now we opened a door to legally kill people who we deem as lesser. Would that be so great in the world? Grandma can’t go to the bathroom anymore it’s time to put her down. Well why have homeless shelters, if people aren’t going to contribute lets just put them down like a dog. MY baby has down syndrome I don’t want it now, can we kill it? Because of this we are now putting in our insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act( also known as Obama Care) the death penalties. Insurance companies now dictate who has a right to live who and who doesn’t.

The funny thing is Mr.Mishik you are not immune. They will kill you now too, when they feel you can no longer contribute to a self ( or collective)sustainable life.

There were a lot of supporters for Terry to live. So don’t be surprised that Jeb Bush fares better than you think. I may not vote for him, but don’t count your eggs before they hatch.
