Knocking the Cover Off the Ball...

Michigan patriot's Op-Ed letter asks:
What has America become?

Has America become the land of the special interest and the home of the double standard...?

Let's see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony- and if the Congress lies to us, it's just politics;

If we dislike a black person, we're racist- and if a black dislikes whites, it's their 1st Amendment right;

The government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims;

In the public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word 'God' in the process!

You can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer;

We don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them;

We got rid of the communist/socialist threat by renaming them 'progressives'.

We are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; 

If you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist- but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park at Christmas;

We have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called 'sick people';

We can use a human fetus for medical research, but it's wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard and give it to those who don't want to work;

We all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology;

We still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct;

Parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; 

The land of opportunity is now the land of hand-outs;

The similarity between Katrina and the Gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help-

AND how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault... then threatens them... passes a law... raises our taxes... then they tell us that the problem is 'solved' so they can get back to their reelection campaign.  

What happened to the land of the free 
and the home of the brave...?

I received this gem in a group email from my uncle, said to have been sent to a Michigan newspaper.  Sounds like 
Mr Huber's had just about enough... perhaps you can relate- 
I know I can.
