Is it me or is there some Mideastern country in turmoil every ten years or so?
Just saw a few clips of what is going on there and, wow, it’s getting ugly fast.
No internet – holy moley – it’s almost 70’s!Â Sorry for the weak joke.Â I would not want to minimize the pain that country is undergoing at the moment.
But this situation does give me pause to truly appreciate and love this country more.Â
With all the partisan, political fighting, the tea parties, the left, the right, the progressives, the conservatives, etc., etc…
And we decide at the ballot box.
We changed Speakers and almost changed majority leaders…
Every 4 years, we potentially change our whole leadership…
There is no presidents for life, no decree to assume emergency powers that extend a president’s term until “further notice.”
Some goober-head at the UN (not a big fan – as you might tell) said to the effect that when people go hungry they have 3 choices:
Terrible, terrible attitude and mindset – and this is the organization that some in this country actually want us to cede our authority andÂ sovereignty to.
Insane and in the words of that US general to the nazis – “nuts!”
Those are not the only 3 options, and this country is proof.Â You can point to all that we do wrong and all the sins we commit and the ills we ignore…Â
But in the end, we take care of our own – we do the best we can to feed our own.
I love this country.
Got some issues – gotta work through it…Â
Jobs is tough, but we will recover.
We will not take to the streets and conduct violent, anarchic protest.
USA is good.
