I don't know

Today was just another arrow into the heart of the founders of America. It doesn't matter how people try to rewrite history, the fact remains that we are and have always been a Christian nation. Our ancestors came here for religious freedom, a freedom we have been slowly loosing. Even other countries around the world can see the hypocrisy and treason rampant in our government. It's hard to even keep up with the constant barrage of scandal upon scandal. Now even the Supreme Court is getting in the game of fundamentally changing America. Not enough Americans truly know our history and the extensiveness of Christianity woven through the fabric of our country. The attacks on our constitution and values are disheartening.

English Please

I'm tired of America catering to everyone and everything. At some point the melting pot is so diluted it is no longer what it was meant to be. I saw a commercial for a nationwide store the other day in Spanish. Last I checked English was the language of the land. What other country caters to every culture and language like America does. It's great that people come to America (legally) and that they keep their traditions and language alive in their families and communities. What I don't like is people trying to change our culture and core values. In the previous centuries immigrants came to America, assimilated into American culture and ideals, learned English and became Americans. If someone doesn't like our culture our language our values our way of life then why come? I would not expect to go to a foreign country and have them cater their society to me and my values. If I don't like their culture or society then I don't have to go there. I've seen kids here learn the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish..really..if I'm going to pledge my Allegiance to America I would think I should at least have the decency to say it in English. There are certain things that make America great, things that built our nation, and many are trying erase that from existence. Those who seek to divide us and pit Americans against each other on the basis of skin or ethnic background or other divisions should be ashamed. There is a reason people flock here. We are free, or least we were. Someone we all know stated that he was going to fundamentally change America, well sadly, he is well on his way. When it's practically a crime to be a true patriotic American we need to stand up and defend America, the one that was meant to be.

Regs Regs and more Regs

So much scandal has been uncovered since I last wrote. The magnitude of it all I guess has left me speechless...for a time. So much needed to be said but unable to formulate it onto a page. But no better time than the present to get back at it.
For the moment though, I have something more general on my mind. Regulations. I've had enough. Don't get me wrong, there needs to be regulations, but in our society we've gone beyond overboard. Those in charge, be it government local or federal, employers, leaders, activists or you name it are trying to control every aspect of our daily lives.

Regulating how much pop we can buy--sure it may be bad for you and people make bad choices, but they should have that choice
Regulating where you can build a house so as not to kill off a bug--where is the value of the human being and their need
Regulating what you can and can't say--heaven forbid we offend anyone (except of course Christians they are apparently fair game)
Regulating guns--ever hear of the 2nd amendment

Licences permits rules and bans for multitudes of things

Stories daily of peoples rights being taken away

Starting or maintaining a small business is made extremely difficult

What happened to America the Land of the Free? We are being squelched, controlled and regulated to death. When a little kid can't sell lemonade on the street without fear of getting in trouble or you can't sell milk from YOUR cow to YOUR neighbor and on and on...something is desperately wrong.
