Having My Say

     There are times when you just have to stand up, and say what you have to say.  If you don’t know by my tone, I’ll tell you I’m angry, and I know I’m taking a risk writing when I’m feeling the way I am, but I’m going to write it anyway.  There are a lot of things I don’t like about the country I live in at the moment, but it has more to do with those in leadership positions than it does the country itself.  I watch the news, and the question I ask most often is what the hell is going on in our country?  This is a rhetorical question for the most part because it’s my feeling that anyone with eyes, and a sense of truth can see what’s going on.  How much do the people of this country have to endure from our present leaders before we’ll stand up and do something about it?  In my 52 years, I’ve never seen so much chaos in this country, so much lawlessness, on every level, and the worst of it at the very top.  What are we becoming that we as a people are so willing to put up with all the garbage we’ve been getting?  What’s worse is the people who are trying to stop all this are the ones who are being targeted, marginalized, and shouted down.


     Does anyone think even for a minute that President Obama and his administration haven’t lied to the American people over and over again?  He said he would have the most transparent administration in history.  Where is it?  How many scandals have there been?  You can’t operate a government, and it certainly can’t do the country’s business when it’s always embroiled in some sort of controversy.  Benghazi, the IRS targeting scandal, the Veterans Administration scandal, and how many others.  What we’ve done to our Veterans, and military personnel in this country is shameful, and the latest outrage is actually firing military personnel while they’re still in danger in the field.  Are you kidding me?  Why would you want to do that to people who have laid everything on the line for our country?  And what about our southern border?   Our President and our government has done nothing to address this problem, and why should they when it’s their policies and lack there of that have created this monumental problem in the first place. 


    Where is our media in this country?  The media aren’t supposed to be partisan in their reporting, nor are they just supposed to make up the news to fit their own narrative.  The media’s role in this country is to be the watchdogs, to inform the public of what is really going on, in our country.  They are not supposed to be the lap dogs of the government, nor anyone’s administration.  


     I’ve heard it said that America is in decline, and it is, but I disagree with those people who say that it’s too late for America.  The only thing wrong with America is that we’ve had too much poor leadership, and too many people who think that throwing money at problems is the only way to solve them.  I contend that the only thing wrong with this country is our failure to put God first.
