The View From 1776
If one listens only to black “leaders” such as Al Sharpton, it’s easy to believe that minorities that feel affronted have a Constitutional right to riot, burn, and loot other people’s property.
- I give Thanks that I was born in 1933 and grew up at the zenith of AMERICAN GREATNESS and with the greatest generation as my role models. I was taught to work hard, play fairly, and to honor the law, God's Commandments, my country and fellow man, and to beat inflation by saving regularly and buying land. (Thrift, moderation, and deferment of gratification trump brains.)
My study of history unfortunately suggests that AMERICA IS ON THE DECLINE, undermined by secularists, opportunists, rampant illegitimacy, socialists, and all the useful idiots who don't have the grit to follow our ancestors' well defined pathways to success and national wellbeing.
I wish everyone a happy holiday, and, on a positive note, will pray that America gets another chance -- after all, China has failed a dozen times, for over 4,000 years, and keeps coming back! If they can do it maybe we can too.Posted by bill greene on 11/27 at 11:19 AM
