Today, the east coast of the United States experienced a minor earthquake. Nothing big, a 5.8. Some damage to poorly built buildings, but nothing big. I did not feel it, but I was in California for a number of destructive quakes. But my point is, people are running around with their hair on fire, worried about the quake and the possible approach of a hurricane. I was at the City Treasurer's office, paying for a cat license, (imagine that) and a middle aged woman and her teenage daughter came in and was in a complete panic! She was saying, over and over; "What is going to happen next?"
The people who settled this country went through natural disasters, that we can't imagine and they went on, stoically, and made this a great country. Today's Americans loose their nerve if their cell phones loose connection! Even our troops in the sandbox, at war, call their families at home, on patrol, from their cell phones. It seems we cannot stand on our own two feet anymore. What ever happened to "Rugged Individualism". We are now a country of lemmings! We have to call Mommy to get permission to go to the head!
Tough men and women made America what it is. They were on their own, responsible for their own well being, unafraid of anyone or anything. Today, most men have never been punched in the nose, well enough stood up for anyone or anything. It's time to "Man Up" America! Grow a set!! Stand up for what is right and fight against anything that is wrong. Yes, there is Right and Wrong! We do not live in "Gray" areas. It is either right or wrong, and it is high time we stand up for that which is right!! It is either that, or we will loose our freedom. It is that simple. So, it's your choice. As for me, I will punch anyone in the nose, verbally or physically, who goes against what I believe in, and damn the consequences!
