We tell that to children… don’t wish your life away waiting until you’re “older” is … instructional.
The future, we tell them, will come soon enough and with a vengeance.
My life seems to have been covered by ages 7, 15, 18, 21, 30, 45, 50… and after that it just seems like catching a train to the next stop. Sure 60, like all decade numerals, has a deeper impact, but then that is forgotten soon enough and in three weeks I’ll be older than my football number… older than a center, younger than a tackle.
It seems to me that the purpose of aging is to gain insight—introspection—and a decent memory which gives you the gift of perspective and the ability to quickly identify charlatans.
The incredible number of charlatans among us nowadays must mean that we are fast losing our ability to discern the snake oil salesmen, the preachers, politicians, poets and provocateurs from Real Americans; that, or we simply do not care to undertake the effort.
What kind of a society, populace, elects a president on the basis of race and the oh-so-critical “hope and change” , and believes that normal changing weather patterns will kill everyone and flood the earth? Well, the same society that insists that killing babies in the womb is a constitutionally-guaranteed “right”… while that the real problem in the world is AIDS.
The Constitution clearly states that our rights are bestowed by God. If murdering a child is “right” then it follows that God must be pro-abortion?
I never heard that as a child, yet now it is the law of the land.
What have we lost…?; our immortal souls, and nothing less.
What kind of a society allows the Boy Scouts to be attacked, vilified and sued, yet protects, encourages and embraces NAMBLA—North American Man/Boy Love Association?
What internal necrosis brings a society to its nadir that proffers hedonism over heroes, encourages gathering only the low-hanging fruit, and tolerates the child-rearing mantra which preaches that just showing up is good enough?
We have come to accept without question that:
- Americans paid more taxes in 2010 than they spent on food, clothing and shelter combined… we worked the first 99 days of the year for free.
- Murderers, rapists and terrorists should be given free food, clothing and shelter, as well as health care, conjugal visits, therapy, hobbies, cable TV, drugs, education, attorneys, and marriage ceremonies and sex change operations.
- Borrowing and printing money, then giving it to the unemployed, leeches, illegal aliens and foreign countries is the path to fiscal sanity.
- Local schools should be run by the federal government… just like 99% of everything else in Americans’ lives—quick, tell me one thing in your life that does not in someway pass through the government and an attorney.
A significant percentage of Americans hate Ronald Regan, yet love Fidel Castro, ridicule Roy Rogers and the Lone Ranger, but idolize perverts like Madonna and Michael Jackson, and are far more disturbed to learn that their child has smoked a cigarette than caught cheating on a test.
Intermixed with all that is the loosening of morals, mens abdication of their leadership role in marriages, families and communities, and most importantly, the diminished role of God in our lives.
We have allowed the War on Christ to spread like a cancer, unabated:
… the continuing war on Christianity and Christmas continues; and we just turn the other cheek, bow and scrape, shrug and do all those other things that always made God so proud of us.
Sometimes I think there is not a more weak-kneed, linguini-spined, milksop group of people in the world than white Christians… but then I remember American Jews.
No, wait… what?
That last part isn’t true, Jews are much worse because they actually collaborate with the people who have vowed to wipe them from the face of the earth.

And here’s a special shout-out to our friends at NPR… Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas….
Especially to NPR’s Nina Totenberg… the far left, half-brain who reported the following::
“We just passed this huge tax cut in part because business said, you know, we have to plan, we have to know what kind of tax cuts we have. Well, these agencies, including the Defense Department, don’t know how much money they’ve got and for what. And I was at a – forgive the expression – a Christmas party at the Department of Justice and people actually were really worried about this.”
Just for the record….she is the spawn of violinist Roman Totenberg and Melanie Totenberg, who was Executive Vice President of the Massachusetts Chapter of Americans for Democratic Action. The ADA grew out of a predecessor group, the Union for Democratic Action (UDA). The UDA was formed by former members of the Socialist Party of America.
On the far left, you see, nits breed lice….
They should be treated accordingly…. to the benefit of the rest of us, society and the world.
