I’m 52 years old today. It has been a remarkable journey. Some years have passed by much too quickly. Others have been as slow and painful as the Rosie O’Donnell Variety Show. Some of the lessons that God has taught me have been more painful than others. But, through it all, His Grace has been sufficient for my every need.
I’ve always had a big mouth. One of the most painful lessons I’ve had to learn is when to keep it shut. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed that those who seek to impose their will on us, as a free nation, appear to be doing and saying whatever outrageous, hurtful, treasonous, and unpatriotic things that they want to, counting on all of us average, Christian Americans (75% of the population, per Gallup) to keep our collective mouths shut.
Well, you know what? I’m 52 and I’m fed up.
I’m fed up with less than 10 % of our population being so self-involved and bitter in their belief that all of this fantastic Universe around us just happened, that they try to make Christians as bitter as they are. Especially, this time of year as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour.
These learned individuals completely ignore the writings of brilliant men, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said:
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
or G. K. Chesterton, who said:
When men stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing. They believe in anything.
I’m fed up with a bunch of amoral, treasonous hyenas controlling the entertainment industry. These are the brilliant individuals who have brought us such cinematic masterpieces as Redacted and The Golden Compass and such high brow television entertainment like My Dad Says @#$% !
In the music industry, the song @#$% You! (which is being sung on Glee as Forget You!) is being honored for an industry award.
I can remember when The Rolling Stones had to change the words to their hit, Let’s Spend the Night Together to Let’s Spend Some Time Together on The Ed Sullivan Show because of the CBS Censors.
I’m fed up with spoiled, crybaby professional athletes. Some idiot the other day tweeted (that’s a whole other subject) that he was mad at God for making him drop a pass. That crybaby should get on his knees and thank God every day for allowing him to make obscene amounts of money, playing a game that most of us are restricted to playing with family and friends in our front yard.
New York Giants Safety Andrel Rolle told the media that the fans should not be booing them for being a lousy football team, because they’re like American soldiers reeturning from Iraq…or something.
Gimme a break.
I’m fed up with the Liberal Media and Conservatives, too, who ought to know better after suffering all these years, unmercifully attacking Sarah Palin two years away from a Presidential Election that she hasn’t even announced her intentions for, yet.
There was story on Fox and Friends this morning about folks who camped out overnight at one of her book signings. She really does connect with a lot of average Americans.
By the way, has Mitt Romney endorsed anyone in the 2010 Midterm Elections, yet?
I’m fed up with the Obama’s, and the pinheaded bureaucrats and academicians in their administration who believe that they have the right to tell us how to raise and what to feed our children. San Francisco has voted to take the toys out of kids’ McDonald’s Happy Meals!
These are our children and grandchildren. We will raise them as we see fit.
Not only do they want to tell us what we can feed to our children, they want to control what we eat. In New York City, Mayor Bloomberg wants to ban salt from restaurants. What? Banning Trans Fat and making french fries, potato chips, and popcorn taste different wasn’t enough?
I’m 52 years old. If I want to have Popeye’s Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes, fried okra, and biscuits, it’s none of your dadblamed business, Michelle (ma belle). People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Have you surveyed your own Southern flank lately?
Finally, I’m fed up with Obama, his administration, his political party, and Congress. These people are so riddled with self-importance, and so intellectually constricted by their self-imposed boundaries of the Beltway Elite society that they live in, that they have completely lost touch with the citizens of the country that they are supposed to represent. They somehow believe that it is in their best interests to govern on behalf of the 18 % of Americans who identify themselves as being Liberals. And those that don’t really believe in this Liberal/Progressive/Marxist ideology, don’t seem to possess the intestinal fortitude to man up and actually serve the people who elected them.
One would have thought that the Political Massacre on November 2nd would have gotten their attention. However, judging from their actions since they got back to work Monday, this oblivious pack of political scavengers seem bound and determined to gnaw as much meat off of the bones of the American Dream as they can before the Big Dog of American Conservatism returns to Washington in January.
However, as fed up as I am, I always have hope. My hope springs not from any political figure or political ideology, but from the One who created me and loves me, in spite of all my shortcomings. This video of one of my favorite songs sums up what I’ve been trying to say. God is good. All the time. May God bless you all.
