Want To Know??? I Dunno!

So I was thinking today, about this United States Of America....and I was remembering, that when I was a kid, I had a sense of pride, about being an American, about The United States, I ran for 5th grade class president, and during the debate, with Jeff Hoffman, my opponent, I had prepared of course and let the kids know that I would be NOTHING like Nixon, even shook my jaws and said No New Taxes or what ever...standing at a mic...yeah...yeah I got the laugh. : ) No, I didn't win the election for class president...that's ok, we left right after that for Japan. But the point I am trying to make is that even as a 5th grader, I was interested enough to want to know what was going on in the world, in our country. 

But I am quite sure at this point, I am embarrassed by the people who represent us, each and every one. I mean, I am not claiming to be able to stand up to scrutiny any better than the next person....so I am not judging them as individuals per say....but as "I CHOOSE TO PLACE MYSELF IN THE SERVICE OF THE PUBLIC FOR PAY" From the way the campaigns are ran, the mud slinging, the fact the you can even run when you are under investigation by the FBI just blows my flipping mind. What IS THAT? People are allowed to run rampant in OUR streets now? The police that We pay for are oblivious to it? What is going on in Oakland, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Ferguson, and those are only some of the recognizable names...there are hundreds more, what is the race issue that has REdeveloped an Inflammation over the last 8 years about? What IS THAT? 

This vent session could go on forever, it seems....from how we are dictated to about raising our children, what is being taught to our children in public and private schools, taxes, laws, licensing fees, registrations, GMA's, how our Farmers are treated anyway, again, the list goes on and on..like it's an Oprah world, And you get a car, And you get a car, And EVERYONE gets a car...well hell, that is just not reality, ( the scary part, is some...A LOT, more than you think, are waiting for it to happen!) You all I am sure know far more than I....but it is sad because I no longer have faith in Our Country...I have faith in people....some people...but This Country is so bassackwards and broken....It is frightening....and yes incredibly disappointing. 

To have had so much in the way of freedoms, and liberties, and even justices, to now be right here, knowing deep down what they really want...and that fools and greed and ignorance have led us to right here, right now. and here comes an election, that there WILL be no GREAT outcome! That is frightening....it gives me pause.     

I know that I wasn't proud of our country because I had no responsibility or sacrifice to make as a child....I was proud, because I had read bout the great men and women that built this country so that we could worship freely, and not be ruled over and taxed unjustly....I was proud because of men like my father, and Ken's father and MANY more like them who fought in wars, and stood up for what they believed as men and as a country. To protect others and us at home.  

And yet we find ourselves again....unable to worship freely,  in school anyway, unless you get special allowance made on case by case yeah? ruled over and taxed unjustly? You decide for yourselves.. I am sure everyone has heard "It's a great big ol' scary world out there.".....I think we are all about to find out and I am not sure I want to!  

By the way, Jeff went on to be Class President Senior Year of High School too, Captain of the football team, and a really nice man!   He also got into Real Estate, but here in California or Colorado, I don't remember. : )

Thank you for letting me vent!

p.s. This is what set me off....anyone who does not agree and participate will be considered thus.  A warning to the feds on incremental prosecutions of the liberty movement  History repeating itself, as is want to do.

I agree with most of what you say.
But I live in a part of the country where the American spirit is still alive and well and thriving, so there is hope.
America isn't dead yet.

I don't believe The American Spirit is dead, but I believe it almost has to be secretly held...in todays and the future society.

I will too always have hope, but I find myself just being so fed up with the back biting, double standards, stripping of rights and liberties...
Good men in jail for standing for what they believe, while a woman is allowed to run for the highest seat of office in this country and she is under FBI investigation...didn't even get booked, arrested, have to post bond and everyone knows she did it, as well as the shameful actions of Benghazi...

Every man is not created equal, but it has nothing to do with skin color, it has to do with $$$ and status, who you know and how hard you can fuck someone over...excuse me...but that appears to be our system...at the present time.

Ok I guess here it is, if Bad things can happen to Good people, When will Bad things happen to Bad people.

Always Hope...Always Face Reality.

Bad things happen to bad people, just not always while they're here on Earth.

Lisa Lane said...

I am aware that sounds naive.. I prefer disheartened.

variety adds spice to life mainlining gets boring fast...

Lisa Lane said...

Hey you, I do try to play nice...but sometimes...well I get a little twisted..for lack of a better word..lol

I originally tried to keep ME out of my blog..but soon realized that it is me...I was really speaking through music, it's just that most didn't know what I was talking about...HisWiserAngel told me I should let a little of me out at a time, till I became comfortable...and what do you know..it is kind of cathartic.

It's good to see you back Livin. Thank you.
