Reader: Meaningful action? Put the blame where it belongs



President Obama urged “meaningful action” on gun control. And now we have it, and it will do nothing except fulfill the Progressive (code for Communism) agenda.

Why don’t we put the blame where it belongs? We are in a world that no longer believes in truth; we are in a new world formed by a school systems and a government that cares more about a teachers pay, unions and votes than the life and education of a child.

A world that has dumbed down students for the past 50 years in order to achieve their goals. Where everyone gets a trophy, where there is no longer right or wrong and the value of a life is no longer sacred.

Where American goodness is no longer proclaimed and its failures are expedited by those who would rather sit on their butts and say, “Poor me” than to get an education or a job, unless someone else does it for them.

Where a very simple Constitution that has protected “We The People” for more than 200 hundred years can no longer be understood. Where we can no longer display a cross without being sued. Where families are awarded for separation and paid well for each illegitimate child.

Where God and love of country have been removed from the public classroom and replaced with environmental worship, global warming, entitlement, civil rights, political correctness, multi-culturalism, and all other goals of Marxism in general.

Where we vote for a president that sheds a tear for the loss of 20 innocent lives but voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act several times, repealed the pro-life “Mexico City Policy,” spent half a billion dollars so American families are forced to pay tax dollars to the nation’s largest abortion provider (Planned Parenthood), which kills a child every 95 seconds, and gave us the HAS mandate that will force all Americans to fund abortion and contraception, with no exceptions for religious institutions or religious individuals who are vehemently against abortion and contraception.

Many of us still remember the life of yesterday where our fathers worked hard to provide for their families. Prior to the great society when family was more important than government hand-outs. When our mothers woke us in the morning with a hot breakfast, packed a good lunch, sent us off to school and we didn’t have to have the government tell us what we could and couldn’t eat.

We attended a school where we lost, won, failed, passed, had fights, became friends. When our heroes were Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone and Sergeant York, not some dude with purple hair and tattoos. When our bus drivers, teachers and principals would jerk us up and maybe give us a few whacks, and when we got home Dad gave us a couple more for good measure. When our mothers and fathers tucked us into bed every night and we prayed “may God bless everybody” and we meant it.

  1. The Americans need to see what has happened to our so called constitutional rights. We have NONE, they are not REAL they don’t exist. The governments have made laws for their own personal gain. Does not let the “WE THE PEOPLE” vote on the bills. It will be about who has the most money to line pockets with than what the “WE THE PEOPLE” of the United States want. It needs to be a government starting with out towns, county, state then nation, that is the “WE THE PEOPLE”. That starts with each and everyone of us. It is not the gun, it was the person behind the gun that caused the deaths of 20 children. So taking guns from us is not going to stop anyone from killing 20 children if that is what that person wants to do.

  2. You forgot to mention “where we have 8% unemployment and so we increase the immigrants from third world countries to do the so called jobs nobody will do” Nonsense, we are now going to increase the H1-B visas to bring in more programmers from India, and make is easy for any alien in the world to become a citizen of the US, where the USDA is helping Mexico send up their poverty to us by giving them food stamps. Pretty clear whats going on here. Genocide comes to mind, and you and I are the targets. They want to destroy our culture and replace it with useful ignorant idiots for profit and votes.
